EVERY aspect of the Covid-19 scenario seems to be mired ever deeper in lies, deception or illegality. No wonder the Austrians protesting on the streets of Vienna call it all ‘Globalisten-Dreck’. (The politer dictionaries will tell you that ‘dreck’ means trash or dirt. What it really means is a bit more medieval: excrement, filth. It survives in the Yiddish ‘drek’.)
Now yet another aspect of compromised Covid administration has been exposed. They’re busy selling the DNA data from their ever-more-regular testing. (So obviously it’s of no consequence that the tests may throw up unreliable results. That’s not what they’re for!)
Take Scotland. The Daily Record has reported that ‘the NHS mobile phone app which presents personal medical information in the form of a QR code shares data with companies including Amazon, Microsoft, ServiceNow, Royal Mail and an AI facial recognition firm’. Users were not informed that their data would be shared.
Many people applied for these tests to secure a vaccine pass, to enable them to participate in normal social activities, such as events and visiting. Sam Grant, of Liberty, expressed serious concerns in that data has been shared with third parties without individuals having the option of opting out, or even being made aware it was happening. In Liberty’s view this casts serious doubts on the legitimacy of the ‘passports’.
It doesn’t stop there. Armstrong Economics reports that a UK-based Covid testing company, Cignpost Diagnostics, is suspected of selling on swab samples containing customers’ DNA. The company claimed that it had the right to sell data to third parties in an effort ‘to learn more about human health’. There does appear to have been a consent form, but it was buried deep within the testing information sheet and unlikely to have been read, since the company primarily sells tests to travellers interested only in rapid results.
Many customers are now claiming that the company did not clearly notify users that their DNA would be sold for profit to conduct unspecified research. So much for ‘informed consent’. The matter is under investigation by the Human Tissue Authority and the Information Commissioner’s Office. Cignpost Diagnostics has now admitted that it might be liable to pay compensation for selling DNA to ‘collaborators’, and started to backtrack on the policy. It claims all swabs are destroyed after notifying the client of the results. But three million tests had already been carried out and distributed.
This is just one of many areas where authorities and institutions, including government itself, have been less than forthcoming about procedures and analysis. In multiple instances ‘conspiracy theories’ are turning out to be worryingly accurate. Just read the Guardian piece by an anonymous respiratory doctor about his ICU filling up with selfish unvaccinated idiots, and subsequently demolished by Tom Penn in TCW Defending Freedom.
Everywhere we are being bombarded by lies, misinformation and defiance of the law.
Neil Oliver, broadcasting on GB News, highlighted how all this has undermined trust in just about every aspect of society. ‘Much more than I trusted governments, I trusted doctors. All doctors. I’m sorry to say it, but I don’t trust all doctors any more either. I feel betrayed by the media – which is ironic, given that I work in the media – but sometimes you have to be inside the tent to see what’s really going on in there. The mass media – here in Great Britain and around the world – seems to me to have been whipping up fear and gaslighting dissenters from the get-go.’
This should come as no surprise, according to Dr Marc Faber, the investment adviser and fund manager who writes the Gloom, Boom & Doom Report. Faber is widely respected for his financial analysis, though his opinions can be controversial. In a recent interview with Daniela Cambone on Stansberry Research, he discusses the nature of the Covid scenario. You can hear him here, from 27.20 mins till 30.05.
After talking about other plagues in history, he says he could never have imagined that after this outbreak of a virus ‘from a laboratory in Wuhan, China, under controversial conditions’, there would have been so much lying and so much political intervention, so that by closing down entire societies and economies, governments ‘would kill people, not by the virus but economically’.
He reminds us that we live in supposedly democratic societies, where ‘we are educated every day at school that we are free’. But on considering government activities, he claims ‘the whole system is built on a huge lie. People are lied to. If you want to become a government official, you only have to go to one school. How do I lie perfectly?’
He continues, not only do officials lie, but they also fail to speak out. ‘What we have today is a government that is contrary to the interests of the people.’ He points to earlier times, under the feudal system or monarchies, where at least you could argue that ‘if a king was very bad, they chopped his head off’. In our so-called democratic systems, they hide, obfuscate and protect each other.
Of course, civilised society has moved on, and there has to be a better way than chopping off heads. In theory there is. In a Swiss referendum yesterday and in Sidcup and Old Bexley on Thursday, the democratic process gives the voters the opportunity of telling their representatives to what extent they are disillusioned or critical, or whether they simply fall into line.
In Switzerland, the result of the referendum gives the Federal Council the public endorsement they wanted to go-ahead to continue with its Covid policies. Nearly two thirds of voters support all measures to date, including the socially divisive Covid Certificate. But the more conservative cantons voted no, and even with cases on the rise, there is an active backlash against giving the government continuing powers. Some criticise the formulation of the referendum question, and the quality of the propagandist information distributed nationally by the General Council, to the extent that the matter may yet end up in the courts.
In the south-east London by-election, voters appear to be disillusioned by the performance of the Westminster Conservatives – the seat has never had any other political voice – but are unlikely to elect any of the other ten candidates standing, irrespective of the programmes they offer. Media bias, encouraged by Gates funding and voter inertia, may yet again prove decisive.
Increasingly there are signs of popular dissent – the crowds on the streets of Vienna, and other major European cities, London included – even though it takes unofficial blogs and anecdotal accounts to get the information into the public domain. But with Omicron now attempting to do what Delta has so far failed to achieve, the signs point to yet another winter of misinformation. Will peaceful protest and a better ‘informed’ democratic process even get a look-in?
