Australia Has Fallen ~ The Videos


Social media, Twitter in particular, has been overwhelmed with Australian citizens uploading videos of over-zealous police officers.

Australian police, it appears, are out in force as many thousands of Australians take to the streets to protest lockdowns, mask-wearing, and the new vaccine mandates which will see thousands of workers lose their jobs if they refuse to have the jab.

If you are naïve enough to think this will never happen in your country, then you are very much mistaken.

The videos should be in one place to remind everyone (including both the vaccinated and unvaccinated) how freedom of choice is being removed. If anything carries a risk, a person should be given a choice.

Here's the videos.

1. Melbourne woman choked by Victoria Police as she resists arrest for not wearing a face mask, this, despite her boyfriend's protestations that she was medically exempt from wearing one.

She was later arrested

**Contains swearing**

2. **Warning Graphic Content**
Flinders Street Station, Melbourne. 
Guy talking to Police.
Officer comes up behind him.
What happens next?

3. Police Officer kicks a man in the face while he is pinned down by several officers. Unsure why this man was pulled over by the cops. But the brutality is horrific. 

4. Standing outside car in cemetery Car Park. There to visit his love ones.

Criminal offence, apparently.

5. Exercising her basic human right. A peaceful protest, causing no harm to anyone. Dragged away with her young child screaming in the background.

6. It's going to get worse. Here's the Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews of the Australian Labor Party. Listen to what he says about the 'booster' jabs.

Are Nurses Conspiracy Theorists Part II


On Aug 27, 2021, Erik Mortensen (Republican Party) hosted a town hall meeting for nurses and other healthcare professionals after he became concerned at the number of healthcare workers who were contacting him about COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Most who contacted him were under threat of losing their jobs after refusing to receive a COVID-19 shot.

The meeting was streamed and published to YouTube.

I wrote about that meeting and shared the video here and Facebook, seemingly, flagging the video as 'spam' here.

Well, Mortensen has once again met with nurses and other healthcare professionals. This time they highlight the pressure they face to receive the shot, the allegedly subpar treatment given to unvaccinated patients and more. Part II was uploaded to YouTube on Sep 21, 2021

Here's Part 2

Who Am I? Trust the Science

With Zoom Trivia Nights soaring throughout the world, I thought I'd throw in three questions that are topical.


1/ Who am I? 

The defendant caused thousands of false and deceptive claims to be made to the state by manipulating published efficacy data, paying key opinion leaders to bolster their product's efficacy, and deceptively concealing their product's inefficacy to physicians, customers, and the state.

Clue: This company likes to remain silent just as the first letter of their name.

Answer - LINK


2/ Who am I? 

In 2003 researchers at the University of Illinois-Chicago released the results of research concluding that a a pharmaceutical company manufactured a drug which elevated risk for diabetes. Subsequently, more than 25,000 lawsuits were filed against the company. In 2010 the company said it would pay a total of $198 million to settle those cases. That same year, the UK’s Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority found that the same company had failed to adequately describe the risks of its product in an advertisement for the drug in a medical journal.

Clue: A Greek star

Answer - LINK


3/ Who am I? 

A huge $100 million settlement for about 1,000 ovarian cancer lawsuits has been reached between this pharmaceutical company and plaintiffs' product lawyers. More recently it announced it was earmarking $4 billion to cover the anticipated cost of the their product's lawsuits. The product in question was a popular over-the-counter talcum powder.

The same company have also had 13,400 lawsuits filed against them for another of their products.  In July 2016, a Philadelphia jury awarded $70 million to Andrew Yount, a Tennessee teen who blamed their product for causing him to develop female-size breasts.

Their own internal studies showed that nearly 5% of children using their product can develop gynecomastia (a condition of overdevelopment or enlargement of the breast tissue in men or boys) - However, they hid this information from the regulators and the public.

Clue: Two of AC/DC's vocalists

You're welcome.

Today is #WorldSuicidePreventionDay

A subject that has, seemingly, been forgotten about during the times we live in. 

For some, suicide was a choice, a means to end their misery. For others, it was out of their control, pushed over the edge by prescription drug-induced #Akathisia.

Today, many suicide prevention orgs will be calling for more mental health screening, a route by where a depressed person can unknowingly agree to the very same treatment that can cause akathisia. 

These suicide prevention orgs are, in the main, supported and funded by the corporation's that manufacture these types of drugs. 

Create awareness wherever you are. Look out for your loved ones and your neighbours. Research the term 'Akathisia' and make it a household name.

Informed Consent - Irrelevant, Inappropriate Spam



irrelevant or inappropriate messages sent on the internet to a large number of recipients.

Following on from 'Are Nurses Conspiracy Theorists?', which contained a video of nurses who gathered at a town hall in Minnesota to air their views about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine, I now have to report that Facebook have deemed that the 1 hour plus presentation is deemed to be going against Facebook's "community standards". (Fig 1)

Fig 1

It seems a bizarre move by the social media giant given that they are, allegedly, all about correct information being disseminated on their platform. What can be more 'on the ball' than nurses working the front lines in hospitals? Or are Facebook suggesting they are 'tin-foil hat' wearers?

If you've not seen the video yet, then I highly recommend it.

Today, I share another video. It was posted by Instagram user, kaitlinjaramillo, and features two women who show us all the patient information leaflet that accompanies the current Covid vaccines. Obviously, one cannot take a video at face value, so I did some digging into this.

It appears it's not the first video to hit social media regarding the, for want of a better word, "lack" of information being handed out to pharmacists and, indeed patients.

The reasoning behind this "lack" of information is equally baffling.

Here's the video:

According to Truthmeter, an apparent fact-finding website, patient inserts on vaccines are intentionally left blank because data is constantly changing. Instead, the blank pages offer the reader a QR code and a website on which the latest vaccine information is published.

This, at first glance, appears all well and good, however, you can only access the website if you are  a Healthcare Professional in the US. Patient's, it appears, cannot access what is, in essence, theirs. (Fig 2)

Fig 2 (Click on image to enlarge)

So, with Facebook, seemingly, cautioning people who post access to information regarding the vaccine, and Janssen, a pharmaceutical company, only allowing healthcare professionals access to this information, where does that leave the consumer?

It appears Janssen will only allow healthcare professionals access, this includes nurses who, according to the definition of the word 'Spam' sees Facebook flagging such posts because they are "irrelevant or inappropriate" (Fig 3)

Fig 3

What's more "irrelevant or inappropriate", access to patient safety information or no access to patient safety information?

These are the times we are living in, folks!

Are Nurses Conspiracy Theorists?


In the mid 1800s, Florence Nightingale co-created a Royal Commission into the health of the military. Along with leading statisticians of the day, William Farr and John Sutherland, they analysed mortality data and found that 16,000 of the 18,000 deaths were from preventable diseases—not battle.

Fast forward to the 21st Century

Erik Mortensen (Republican Party) is a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives, representing District 55A. He assumed office on January 5, 2021. His current term ends on January 2, 2023.

On Aug 27, 2021, Mortensen hosted a town hall meeting for nurses and other healthcare professionals after he became concerned at the number of healthcare workers who were contacting him about COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Most who contacted him were under threat of losing their jobs after refusing to receive a COVID-19 shot.

Previously, the nurses in the video (below) had been hailed as heroes as they stepped up to the frontline to help in the COVID-19 wards.

As the vaccines were rolled out they have witnessed how these shots have killed and injured people, including family members.

The mainstream media have reported that most healthcare workers are now fully vaccinated but the discussion in the video below disputes this.

One key question put forward by a nurse in this discussion got me thinking:

“Why aren’t people asking the nurses why they don’t want to take the shots?”

Why indeed.

Most people who have had the shots may think this discussion isn't applicable to them. They received slight bruising and maybe tiredness after their shots but was well again 24 hours later. They are now free to walk the streets in the hope the vaccine will prevent them from falling seriously ill, they also feel they are 'doing their bit' to help slow the spread of this invisible enemy that has killed so many.

There will be a section of people, across America at least, who will choose not to watch this video for political reasons. Democrats don't want to show any kind of support to opposition leaders or representatives. It goes against the grain to listen to what the opposition has to say, even if it's the truth. This stance has been rife throughout history in politics, also in religion, we now see such a divide anytime vaccine safety is aired.

The nurses in the video drop a few bombs, none more so than the fact that they are being told to not report vaccine injuries and deaths.

One nurse also says, "If I don’t get the vaccine, I’m going to lose my job. I’m going to lose thousands of dollars in retirement. I’m going to lose my health insurance, my life insurance, my over 400 days of extended illness bank hours. I’m going to lose a lot. I’m here because I believe in medical freedom. And I believe if we don’t stand up and stop these mandates, they’re going to keep twisting our arm, and twisting our arm, and twisting our arm, until we’re all broken."

Again, those who have already had the vaccine will probably feel this video isn't worth watching, they will tend to watch, believe and disseminate videos from the mainstream media because, well, it's the mainstream media who have convinced them that everything is hunky dory with the vaccines and those who have already lined up for their shots are living proof of this.

Before you watch the nurses discuss what is going on in the real world let's take a short look at what Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews had to say recently on Sky News Australia.

"There is going to be a vaccinated economy, and you get to participate in that if you are vaccinated. We're going to move to a situation where, to protect the health system, we are going to lock out people who are not vaccinated and can be."

Contrast what Premier Daniel Andrews' says now with what a room full of frontline nurses are saying.

Who do you believe, a government official or nurses with first hand experience?

The video below isn't making headlines. Neither CNN or, indeed, Republican-run Fox News is reporting on the video. It should be viral yet it's only had around 26,000 views. Once again, it is left to the public to disseminate such information.

If anyone does decide to share this blog post or the video then be prepared for the backlash. You wear a tin-foil hat, you are endangering lives, you're 'anti-vax', a conspiracy theorist, you're not a vaccine expert, I prefer to listen to the scientists than someone who is a Google Dr.

But hey, if you are any of the above, that means the nurses who feature in the video are too, right?

**Discussion starts at the 17 min 15 sec mark**

If video doesn't play, you can find it here.

**UPDATE** Facebook regard the nurse video as 'Spam'
