Proposed Bill Would Make It a Criminal Offense to Ask Anyone About Their Covid Vaccination Status

January 27th, 2022

South Carolina Republicans are introducing a bill that would make it a criminal offense to ask anyone about their Covid vaccination status. H. 4848, the bill under consideration, was introduced on January 20.

“Any employee, officer, agent, or other representative of a public, nonprofit, or private entity who inquires about the COVID-19 vaccination status of any student, employee, member, or anyone else seeking admission on the entity’s premises is guilty of a misdemeanor,” the text of the bill states.

Demanding that someone provide their Covid vaccination status would be punishable by a fine of up to $14,000 fine or up to a year in jail, or both.

The bill is being spearheaded by South Carolina Rep. Mike Burns with Reps. Patrick Haddon, Steven Wayne Lond and William Chumley as its sponsors.

“This bill is primarily one to protect both your job, home, health insurance, car, future,” Burns told Newsweek.

“They cannot ask you if you are pregnant or intend to get pregnant, or HIV status. But they won’t to fire you when you disclose that you’re not taking the vaccine?” he added. “Who thinks all this is a great idea?”

Burns earlier told Fox News that insurance companies were planning on charging higher premiums for ‘unvaccinated’ people.

“They’re charging up to an extra $100 a week more than the vaccinated people,” he said. “It is absolutely insane to do this kind of thing.”

Numerous states have banned Covid passports, including Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Arkansas, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa, Missouri, Alaska, Mississippi, Indiana, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina.

A number of states, including Florida, Montana, Utah, Texas, Michigan, Indiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Georgia, also have a state worker vaccine mandate ban in place. These states also ban school mandates.

50,000 Trucks Heading Toward Ottawa to Demand an End to Covid Mandates

“Freedom Convoy 2022,” which began rolling east from western Canada over the weekend, has turned into a grassroots movement in Canada.

Thousands of Canadian truckers began a “slow roll” to Ottawa this weekend to protest draconian COVID jab mandates and other virus rules imposed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and provincial premiers.

The “Freedom Convoy 2022” group raised $3.5 million in only 11 days, seeing grassroots support for Canadian truckers against both a COVID jab mandate for all haulers crossing the border and all other virus rules increase at an astonishingly rapid pace.

According to the “Freedom Convoy 2022” Go Fund Me page, the group has support from more than 44,000 donors who are helping fund the convoy, which, once in Ottawa, plans to stay there until political leaders remove all discriminatory COVID measures.

“We are taking our fight to the doorsteps of our Federal Government and demanding that they cease all mandates against its people. Small businesses are being destroyed, homes are being destroyed, and people are being mistreated and denied fundamental necessities to survive,” reads the “Freedom Convoy 2022” Go Fund Me page.

The funds raised will go toward the cost of “fuel, food and lodgings to help ease the pressures of this arduous task.”

Over the weekend, truckers and their supporters from western Canada began their caravan, starting from cities and towns in British Columbia, with thousands of Alberta truck drivers joining yesterday.

Some estimates put the total amount of truckers who will take part in the caravan at well over 50,000 trucks and more than half a million people.

The trucker caravan from the Edmonton, Alberta, area alone yesterday was said to be more than 40 kilometers in length before arriving in Calgary to head east to Ottawa.

From British Columbia, estimates put their caravan, who have now joined up in Alberta on their way east, at well over 70 kilometers in length.

Truckers in Ontario and other parts of eastern Canada will begin, or already have done so, separate convoys to Ottawa in the coming days.

Late last week, the Trudeau government reinstated a requirement that all truckers crossing the border be “fully vaccinated” against COVID-19 by January 15.

The mandate came despite a report that Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) said un-jabbed truck drivers would be allowed to enter Canada from the United States.

Canadian truckers coming from the United States who are not jabbed will still be allowed to enter the country. However, they will be forced to do a COVID test and then quarantine for up to two weeks. Un-jabbed American truckers will be denied entry.

The jab mandate for truckers was first announced November 19 by the federal government.

The U.S. government has enacted a mandate like Canada’s that took effect on January 22.

Some Canadian trucking companies have  already reported driver shortages as a direct result of the COVID jab mandate for all haulers crossing the border.

And the new policy has already caused food supply issues  as well, hitting eastern Canada hard.

Pictures of empty shelves in grocery stores, especially in Ontario, are becoming common.

Rally organizer: We are here to ‘love one another and forgive one another.’ ‘They can’t hurt us and they know it’

Tamara Lich, who is from Medicine Hat, Alberta, and the main organizer of the group “Freedom Convoy 2022,” said in a video she was amazed at the “beautiful site to see” of the truckers who have joined the convoy to Ottawa.

She also said that the convoy will be a peaceful protest, pointing out she has been working with law enforcement to ensure that the convoy is done in accordance with all local laws.

“As you know, we are now starting to be attacked and smeared, and they’re starting to say some pretty nasty things, which, you know what? We all knew that was going to come. We all knew that was that was going to come. And you know what? That’s OK,” said Lich in another Facebook message yesterday.

“They are entitled to their opinion, just like we’re entitled to our opinion. And so what I’m going to ask of you is to if you are inclined to pray for them because they know not what they do, we are not here to spread hate. We are not here to create more division. We are here to stand up together and we are here to love one another and forgive one another.”

Lich added that the time for egos is “over.”

“Let’s move on. They can’t hurt us and they know it, and I think we have them. I think we have them a little bit shaken up, to be honest,” said Lich.

A truly Canadian grassroots rebellion 

Images on social media showing armies of people making food for convoy participants as well as roadside send-offs shows just how much steam this purely grassroots-led rebellion has gained against Trudeau’s mandates.

“Citizens do not protest simultaneously all over the world when nothing nefarious is going on. The world is awake! I’m proud of all the protesters I’ve seen today – also very proud of the Canadian truckers! #FreedomConvoy2022  #TrudeauMustGo #endmedicalsegregation #DoNotComply Flag of Canada,” wrote Twitter user Chelsea MacDonald yesterday.

Wrote one Twitter user named Simon yesterday, “Some people think this trucker convoy is stupid, but look how amped up people are over it. Huge crowds to cheer them on. Donations flowing in to support them. Trudeau has a big problem on his hands now. People are uniting. His divisive rhetoric isn’t working anymore.”

Popular Canadian psychologist and cultural analyst Jordan Peterson, who has come out hard against COVID mandates, wrote bluntly today on Twitter, “50000 trucks. You’re in for a very bad week @JustinTrudeau. And that’s not everything that’s about to happen.”

Conservative politicians finally speaking out  

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said late last week that Trudeau has to end at once the trucker COVID jab mandate.

Today, Kenney went a step further, admitting the trucker jab mandate has turned into a “crisis” and said both the Canadian and American governments need to take “immediate” action to fix the crisis.

“I’m getting pictures like this from grocery stores across Alberta this morning. This is turning into a crisis. It requires immediate action by the Canadian & US governments,” tweeted Kenney today.

Kenney said that he was “on the phone with US Governors this morning who share my concerns.”

“We are working on a joint letter to the President and the Prime Minister urging them to use common sense, end the policy that has taken thousands of trucks of the road,” tweeted Kenney today.

Many called out Kenney, however, for saying one thing while doing another, pointing out that discriminatory vaccine passports and draconian COVID rules are still in place in Alberta.

“Jason Kenney, enforcer of vaccine passports and mandates, complains to win some cheap political points while he simultaneously holds “unvaccinated” Albertans hostage. Got it,” tweeted Albertan Paul Mitchell, who ran as People’s Party of Canada (PPC) candidate in 2019.

On Monday, Trudeau said the trucker rebellion amounted to “fear-mongering.”

“I regret that the Conservative Party and conservative politicians are fear-mongering to Canadians about the supply chain, but the reality is that vaccination is how we’re going to get through this,” Trudeau said to reporters.

Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) MP Pierre Poilievre went after the mandate last Wednesday, calling it a “vaccine vendetta” against un-jabbed truckers. Yesterday, he said that “COVID has become a never-ending excuse for power-hungry authorities to replace our freedom with their control. Enough. Reopen our businesses, let our truckers drive & restore freedom for all.”

Southern Manitoba CPC MP Ted Falk called the mandates “wrong” and not “constitutional” while speaking from a trucker protest at the U.S.-Canada border last week.

CPC leader Erin O’Toole, however, has been silent regarding the trucker freedom convoy, refusing to say today whether or not he supports them.

PPC leader Maxime Bernier, who has come out strong against COVID mandates of all kinds, said today that he was happy to see at least some CPC MPs speak out against mandates.

“Congratulations to @PierrePoilievre and the handful of Conservative MPs who are jumping on the bandwagon and finally denouncing Trudeau’s authoritarian measures after two years of complete silence. Hope to see you next weekend in Ottawa.#TruckerforFreedom,” wrote Bernier.

Trade associations from Canada and the U.S. began warning that the vaccine mandate could harshly impact an already stressed food and goods supply chain, which has seen massive disruptions due to the COVID crisis.

Wuhan Collaborators ‘EcoHealth’ Just Received One Their Largest EVER Grants, From Joe Biden’s Government.

EcoHealth Alliance – an American nonprofit that collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology on manipulating bat coronaviruses resembling COVID-19 – has received one of its largest-ever grants from Joe Biden’s White House.

Led by the disgraced Peter Daszak – a long-time Anthony Fauci ally – EcoHealth’s new Biden-era grant began on October 26th, 2021. It came less than one week after the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) admitted the group engaged in gain-of-function research alongside the Wuhan lab, failing to report its findings “as was required by the terms of the grant.”

Gain-of-function research entails increasing the lethality, virulence, and transmissibility of a pathogen, which deleted webpages from the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s website reveal the lab was engaged in alongside EcoHealth Alliance.

As Dr. Richard Ebright, Board of Governors Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Rutgers University, explained the October 20th letter:

NIH corrects untruthful assertions by NIH Director Collins and NIAID Director Fauci that NIH had not funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan.

The Biden grant will furnish Daszak with a new $4.7m of U.S. taxpayer cash until 2026.

“USAID CWA is to conserve threatened and endangered species by strengthening protected areas and helping communities be less reliant on protected resources for their livelihoods,” notes the grant’s description.

The cash represents the largest sum EcoHealth Alliance has ever received from USAID, with the next largest totaling less than $2 million. The Biden-backed $4.7 million grant is also the third-largest grant the group has ever received from a federal agency.

In addition to EcoHealth Alliance’s lies about its involvement in gain-of-function research with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the group’s president Peter Daszak has spearheaded efforts to quash the narrative that COVID-19 had lab origins, in lock-step with the Chinese Communist Party and its propaganda mouthpieces.

Following National Pulse exposés revealing Daszak’s extensive conflicts of interests, he was recused from the Lancet medical journal’s COVID-19 origins commission.

Ireland To Drop Almost All COVID Restrictions That Have Been In Place For 2 Years

Majority of measures that have been in place for almost two years will be lifted on Saturday, the prime minister says.

Ireland is to scrap almost all its COVID-19 restrictions on Saturday… Prime Minister Micheal Martin has said. (…)

The country has been one of the most cautious in the European Union on the risks of COVID-19, putting in place some of the longest-running restrictions on travel and hospitality.

But following advice from public health officials, the government decided that bars and restaurants will no longer need to close at 8pm … or to ask customers for proof of vax.

Capacity in indoor and outdoor venues is also set to return to full capacity, paving the way for full crowds for next month’s Six Nations rugby championship.

Some measures, such as the need to wear a mask on public transport and in shops, will remain in place until the end of February, Martin said…

Ron Paul, Congressman of 30 Years, Banned on Facebook After Quoting Pfizer CEO

By Matt Agorist

Though the fact-checking madness began long before COVID-19, over the last two years, fact-checking has seemingly been weaponized to defend the establishment’s narrative only. Challenge the status quo and you will be censored into oblivion by the system’s praetorian guard — never mind the fact that they have been wrong countless times.

One of the most egregious “fact checks” happened recently after Pfizer’s CEO Albert Bourla made a statement during an interview with Yahoo Finance on January 10. Speaking in reference to the Omicron variant of COVID-19, Bourla said, “We know that the two doses of a vaccine offer very limited protection, if any.”

Naturally, this statement from the CEO of a vaccine company that manufactures the jab which many Americans were forced to take against their will in order to keep their jobs or go out in public, drew much deserved attention. Many folks called out the CEO for his comments in April in which he stated that the “Phase 3 study with BioNTech also showed that our COVID-19 vaccine was 100% effective in preventing #COVID19 cases in South Africa. 100%!”

Excited to share that updated analysis from our Phase 3 study with BioNTech also showed that our COVID-19 vaccine was 100% effective in preventing #COVID19 cases in South Africa. 100%! https://t.co/E2ksTJSopU

— Albert Bourla (@AlbertBourla) April 1, 2021

As people began to compare these two statements — one claiming 100% efficacy, with another claiming two doses may not work at all — the praetorian guard, aka the fact-checking army, came to the rescue to conduct damage control.

Because Bourla did in fact state that the vaccine was 100% effective in April only to claim 9 months later that it may not be effective at all, the fact-checkers couldn’t claim this was false. Instead, Reuters claimed that anyone who pointed out Bourla’s most recent statement was “missing context” when quoting the CEO because his comments about offering “very limited protection, if any,” were made specifically in regard to the Omicron variant.

VERDICT
Missing context. During an interview on Jan. 10, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech shot offered “very limited protection” against COVID-19 infection with the Omicron variant. He was not talking about protection against infection by other variants of the coronavirus.

This statement is true and the carefully chosen wording makes it impossible to dispute. A win for Bourla, loss for anyone who quoted him.

Let’s forget about the fact that the federal government did not detail the efficacy of the jab against specific variants when it mandated vaccines through OSHA. Let’s also forget that New York, San Francisco, and the myriad of other municipalities who have mandated the jab for access to public places also make no mention of efficacy against all the different variants while compelling the medical procedure. This is apparently not important to them.

What is important, however, is protecting the image of Pfizer and making sure no one becomes “vaccine-hesitant” based on misconstrued statements or misinformation. Right?

Moving forward, we will have to specify the exact variant of the covid-19 virus to which the big pharma shills are referring in regard to the vaccine if we are to challenge or quote anything they say — lest we get the ban hammer. Just ask former Congressman Ron Paul what happens when you quote the Pfizer CEO and leave out Omicron.

Paul was banned from Facebook for 90 days for sharing the video of Bourla, and titling it “Pfizer CEO: From “100% Effective in Preventing Covid” To “Very Limited Protection, If Any.” All of this is factual, but leaving out Omicron left the former Congressman open for attack, and attacked he was.

“My speech crime? I shared an interview with the CEO of Pfizer,” Dr. Paul wrote in an email.

“The so-called “missing context” that Facebook’s “fact-checkers” claim justifies banning me from interacting with over a million followers is that the drug company CEO was “only” referring to the Omicron variant that makes up 95% of new COVID cases in the United States,” he said, adding that “this was my second sanctioning by Facebook in just over a year.”

The idea that a former Congressman of three decades can be wiped off of social media for simply sharing a video of the Pfizer CEO should be shocking. Unfortunately, however, it is the norm, and it is to be expected, especially considering the cozy relationship between the fact-checkers and the industry.

In fact, their relationship is far more than just cozy. In 2014, James C. Smith — who was then the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Thomson Reuters and served on its Board of Directors — was appointed to the Board of Directors to the Corporate Governance and Science and Technology Committees at Pfizer.

Thomson Reuters CEO James C. Smith elected to Pfizer Board of Directors http://t.co/ZeZkq36ida

— Pfizer Inc. (@pfizer_news) June 26, 2014

That’s right, after his appointment to the Board of Directors for Pfizer, Smith remained the CEO for Reuters for the next six years. Though he retired from the news agency in 2020, Smith remains on the Pfizer board. He is also still the current Chairman of the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

But that’s not all. Smith is also on the international business council of the World Economic Forum and the international advisory boards of the British American Business Council and, last but not least, none other than the infamous Atlantic Council.

Certainly there has to be a conflict of interests somewhere in all these entanglements, right? If Reuters is conducting fact checks for Pfizer’s benefit, it might be beneficial if people knew the tightly woven connection between these two multi-billion dollar corporations, right?

It certainly creates a motive for Smith to remove his LinkedIn profile which detailed all these connections. Whether or not this was the reason it was removed is unclear, but it was there one day and gone the next.

For now, there is no recourse and Reuters has the final word… Actual discourse be damned.

America’s Military Should be Used to Oppress The Unvaxed, Says Leading Utah Newspaper.

Natalie Winters 
January 16, 2022

The editorial board of the 152-year-old Salt Lake Tribune has demanded that Utah’s governor deploys the National Guard to ensure that individuals unvaccinated against COVID-19 “would not be allowed anywhere.”

The use of one of America’s most storied publications to lobby in favor of the oppression of those unwilling to take an experimental “vaccine” represents one of the most disturbing developments in 2022.

In the January 15th op-ed – “Utah leaders have surrendered to COVID pandemic” – the outlet bemoans state leadership for “waiving the white flag of surrender in the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic.” Amidst a litany of complaints against Republican Governor Spencer Cox, the Salt Lake Tribune proposes deploying the National Guard, a reserve component of the U.S. Armed Forces, to “ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere”:

“We might have headed off omicron with a herd immunity-level of vaccinations, but that would have required a vaccination mandate, which our leaders refused. Instead, we get, “No one could have seen this coming.” That is patently untrue. They were told what to do, and they refused.

Were Utah a truly civilized place, the governor’s next move would be to find a way to mandate the kind of mass vaccination campaign we should have launched a year ago, going as far as to deploy the National Guard to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere.

But it may be too late for that, politically and medically.”

The outlet’s six-person editorial board includes former Governor and failed presidential candidate Jon Huntsman’s son, who bought in The Salt Lake Tribune 2016.

Dave Patel, who served as the Director of National Operations at the Department of Defense’s Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve under President George W. Bush, is also a member of the Editorial Board along with Michelle Quist, an attorney who has been a Utah Republican Party county and state officer.

Quist frequently pens op-eds in defense of “Never Trump” Senator Mitt Romney for the paper, including a piece on May 6th, 2021 lamenting former President Donald Trump’s influence on the Republican party:

“Why did they boo Romney? Because they’re unhappy with his votes for impeachment. Trump, again. And the Big Lie,” she explained before demanding: “Get. Over. It.”

While attacking Utah lawmakers fighting for election integrity, she praised Romney’s objection to the cause in an op-ed on January 15th, 2021:

On the bright side, Utah does have a senator — Sen. Mitt Romney — who was recognized nationally not only for standing up to Trump’s lies about the stolen election before the insurrection but even more eloquently after.

So, for Utah, it’s still an unanswered question as to whether our leaders will put country before party or themselves before all. And if they can’t refine a character like Romney’s, then any good we do will be quickly discredited by those who represent us.

The outlet’s call on the military to be used against unvaccinated Americans follows increasingly strict restrictions surrounding COVID-19 vaccinations and the ability to work and access businesses.

Boris Johnson Scraps COVID Mandates in England: ‘We Will Trust The Judgment of the British People’

Alicia Powe
January 19, 2022

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is scrapping COVID mandates.

As of Thursday, students are no longer required to wear masks in classrooms.

On January 27, face masks will no longer be mandatory in any school or anywhere in England and vaccine passports will no longer be required to attend large events. The government will instead “recommend” face coverings in enclosed spaces but leave people with a choice on whether to wear them.

The government will also abandon its COVID pass requirement and no longer force people to present proof of vaccination to enter public venues.

“In the country at large, we will continue to suggest the use of face coverings in enclosed or crowded spaces, particularly when you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet, but we will trust the judgment of the British people and no longer criminalize anyone who chooses not to wear one,” Johnson told parliament on Wednesday.

The British prime minister also rescinded the government’s work-from-home requirement which has been in effect since December 13. England will begin treating Covid like the flu, Johnson explained.

“There will soon come a time when we can remove the legal requirement to self-isolate altogether, just as we don’t place legal obligations on people to isolate if they have flu,” Johnson said. “As Covid becomes endemic, we will need to replace legal requirements with advice and guidance, urging people with the virus to be careful and considerate of others.”

The British head of state maintains Covid restrictions are no longer mandatory because government scientists claim the surge of infections prompted by the omicron variant “has now peaked nationally” and more than 90 percent of those over 60 in the UK have received at least three doses of the Covid vaccine or booster shot.

Danish Newspaper Apologizes for ‘Hypnotically’ Following Gov’t Narrative on Covid: ‘We Failed’

Jack Bingham
January 14th, 2022

One of the largest news outlets in Denmark apologized to its readers for “hypnotically” trusting the government’s COVID narrative for the past two years.

In a shocking admission of failure to uphold the standards of journalistic integrity, Denmark’s Ekstra Bladet newspaper ran a story titled “We failed” on Tuesday, admitting that the paper was hoodwinked by the mainstream COVID narrative and complicit in misleading the public and fostering undue fear.

“For ALMOST two years, we — the press and the population — have been almost hypnotically preoccupied with the authorities’ daily coronavirus figures,” read the article’s introduction. “WE HAVE NOT been vigilant enough at the garden gate when the authorities were required to answer what it actually meant that people are hospitalized with corona and not because of corona. Because it makes a difference. A big difference.”

Not leaving their culpability in furthering the COVID hysteria there, the paper divulged that it wrongly believed and pushed many of the “lies” of politicians, and erroneously continued to promulgate the idea that vaccination is the only surefire tool that can be used to put an end to the pandemic.

“The vaccines are consistently referred to as our ‘superweapon.’ And our hospitals are called ‘superhospitals.’ Nevertheless, these super-hospitals are apparently maximally pressured, even though almost the entire population is armed with a super-weapon. Even children have been vaccinated on a huge scale, which has not been done in our neighboring countries,” wrote the outlet.

As reported by Summit News’ Paul Joseph Watson, Ekstra Bladet is actually the second major European media outlet to admit to failures regarding objectivity and a lack of skepticism the mainstream government narrative on COVID is due.

In August 2021, the now-fired editor-in-chief of Germany’s top paper, Bild, referred to the fear-mongering done by his outlet as “poison,” while apologizing to the public if his paper’s coverage of the overblown COVID crisis “made you feel like you were a mortal danger to society.”

Many took to social media to express their pleasant surprise with the outlet’s courage to take ownership of their mistake. Former New York Times writer Barri Weiss posted “Whoa” in response to the news.

“Amazing. American newspapers should start doing the same,” said popular independent political commentator An0maly.

The media’s push to vaccinate the majority of the world’s population in order to prevent serious disease for those who are not at risk to begin with — the CDC reports an infection survival rate of greater than 99.95% for those under age 50 — adds to the skepticism surrounding the credibility of long-standing media institutions around the world.

Notably, in America, both left-wing and right-wing establishment news networks have watched their ratings plummet during the pandemic, with CNN’s primetime dropping by 68%, Fox’s falling by 50%, and MSNBC’s slipping 48%, since the beginning of 2021.

As a result, independent or non-traditional outlets have grown exponentially in their influence, with singular figures like podcast host and comedian Joe Rogan having higher viewership than entire news networks, despite manipulation from big tech.

“What we’re experiencing is a coordinated media warfare the likes of which we have never seen before,” virologist and mRNA vaccine pioneer Dr. Robert Malone told Rogan in a podcast last month, addressing the issue of media manipulation while adding that it’s not exclusively Big Tech corporations that are responsible for chilling free speech about COVID-19.

“It’s the horizontal integration across all major industries now under the control of common funds,” Malone said. “The harmonization of the tech censorship, the interests of ‘Pharma,’ ‘Big Media,’ etc., and governments.”

Fifth Time’s the Charm? Israeli Trial Shows 4th Shot of Covid Vaccine Doesn’t Stop Omicron

January 18, 2022
Kyle Becker

The tiny Jewish state of Israel has become like a Covid laboratory for the world’s scientists to test their mRNA shots, which have been marketed as “vaccines.”

But a fourth shot that has been introduced in the country, a second “booster,” if you will, has completely failed to slow the spread, according to a recent investigation.

“A fourth dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was insufficient to prevent infection with the omicron variant of Covid-19, according to preliminary data from a trial in Israel released Monday,” Bloomberg reported.

“Two weeks after the start of the trial of 154 medical personnel at the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Aviv, researchers found the vaccine raised antibody levels,” the report noted.

“But that only offered a partial defense against omicron, according to Gili Regev-Yochay, the trial’s lead researcher,” the report continued. “Vaccines which were more effective against previous variants offer less protection with omicron, she said. Still, those infected in the trial had only slight symptoms or none at all.”

In early January, Bloomberg also reported on the Israeli government’s roll-out of the fourth Covid shots.

“A year after rolling out the world’s fastest coronavirus vaccination program, Israel again finds itself a global test case as it begins widely delivering fourth doses amid a surge in the omicron variant,” the report stated.

“Although the number of serious cases and deaths remain well below last year’s peak, infections have skyrocketed to record levels and could once again threaten to overwhelm hospitals if the new daily caseload reaches 50,000 as Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has warned,” the report continued. “Many of the newly infected were vaccinated at least twice.”

As previously reported, a Harvard study of 68 nations and 2,947 counties in the United States published in the European Journal of Epidemiology showed conclusively that the Covid ‘vaccines’ did not stop the spread of the Delta variant. The Omicron variant has demonstrated again that the mRNA shots are powerless to stop infections or transmission.

However, a South African study showed that even unvaccinated people infected with the Omicron variant were less likely to fall seriously ill, require hospitalization or die compared to prior COVID-19 variants, the New York Post reported.

“After adjusting for age, sex, comorbidities and subdistrict there was a substantially reduced hazard of death in wave four compared to wave three,” the study concluded.

The Omicron variant is now estimated to be 99 per cent less lethal than Delta, with an infection Fatality Rate (IFR) that could be as low as 0.0025 per cent, or the equivalent of one in 40,000.

Promisingly, a groundbreaking study showed that prior infection to the Omicron variant may confer strong and durable natural immunity to other variants, such as the Delta variant.

There may be no such thing as “fully vaccinated” for Covid-19 in Israel, however. The nation now has to grapple with the fact that its fourth shot in under a year may not prove beneficial to the general population.

“Given that that the virus is here and will continue to be here, we also need to prepare for a fourth injection,” Israel’s national coronavirus czar Salman Zarka said in September. ‘This is our life from now on, in waves.”

“Thinking about this and the waning of the vaccines and the antibodies, it seems every few months — it could be once a year or five or six months — we’ll need another shot,” he added.

The Israeli Health Minister in September was caught on hot mic confessing that there was no medical justification for Covid passports.

“There is no medical or epidemiological justification for the Covid passport, it is only intended to pressure the unvaccinated to vaccinate,” Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said in video that was aired on Channel 12.

“Several ministers were overheard prior to a cabinet meeting on Sunday saying that some coronavirus-related restrictions are only aimed at incentivizing vaccination, rather than driving down morbidity, while lamenting that the unvaccinated are taking up hospital beds,” the Times of Israel reported on the incident.

It appears that universal vaccination is Big Pharma’s agenda, regardless of the risks or results to the general population.

The European Medicines Agency last week even issued a warning that too many boosters could weaken the immune system.

The European Union’s drug regulator is warning that too many doses of COVID-19 vaccines could eventually weaken the body’s immune system, rendering the extra shots ineffective.

Marco Cavaleri, the head of vaccine strategy for the European Medicines Agency, said that booster shots can be administered “once, or maybe twice, but it’s not something that we think should be repeated constantly.”

In late November, medical experts claimed that they were confident they could rapidly develop a vaccine specifically for the Omicron variant of Covid-19.

Since the shots do little or nothing to stop the spread of the disease, it looks like Big Pharma has a business model of putting the world on a booster subscription plan.

Teachers across France staged a mass walkout this week in protest over the government’s ever-changing COVID-19 rules for those working in the education sector which they say fail to protect both staff and students.

The French Ministry of Education estimated that around 31 percent of all school teachers across the country took part in the strike on Thursday, 38 percent of whom worked in primary schools and nearly 24 percent in secondary schools.

A statement from the Mayor of Paris’ office said that in the capital city, roughly 58 percent of the teaching staff took part in the strike, and around 200 schools were forced to close, although trade and teachers unions put those figures much higher, at 75 percent.

The protests came as teachers across France are growing increasingly frustrated with the government’s ever-changing policies regarding the pandemic which has seen testing rules for children changed several times since the start of this year alone, oftentimes at the very last minute.

On top of that, educators say the government’s approach to the pandemic is failing to protect children or ensure replacement cover for teachers who are falling ill with the coronavirus. Unions are also calling on the government to provide more protective FFP2 face masks for staff as well as carbon dioxide monitors in classrooms so that they can ensure that they are sufficiently ventilated, as per The Guardian.

Despite a surge in virus cases in schools across France, which have reached record highs of close to 370,000 new daily cases, the government has so far kept classes open and required all pupils in contact with an infected person to get tested three times.

“We had reached such a level of exasperation, tiredness, and anger that we didn’t have any other option but to organize a strike to send a strong message to the government,” union leader Elisabeth Allain-Moreno said.

On Monday, French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced that the rules were changing yet again, telling  TV station France 2 that students would now be required to take three self-administered COVID-19 at home, which will be free, as opposed to having PCR or antigen tests and then two self-administered tests on day two and day four.

“This will have an effect on the queues [outside pharmacies],” Castex said.

But on Thursday, Snuipp-F.S.U., a leading union of elementary school personnel, criticized the government for allegedly updating the rules via the media as opposed to informing teachers beforehand.

“The prime minister’s televised speech ignoring the demands of personnel has once again demonstrated government contempt amplifying their anger and their mobilization,” SUNipp-FSU said.

“Once again, the protocol relief is announced in the media, and staff in schools must respond from this morning to family questions without any official instructions.”

The union stressed that the mass protests were not “a strike against the virus” but illustrated the growing frustrations among teachers, noting that the lack of replacements for sick teachers is adding extra pressure on the education system.

“Not only does the current protocol fail to protect students, staff, and their families but it also completely disorganizes the school,” SUNipp-FSU said. “Under current conditions, students cannot learn correctly.”

France has seen dozens of protests in recent months over the strict measures that have been put in place across the nation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The country has enforced a health pass, meaning that people have to show either proof of vaccination or a negative test to enter restaurants, cafes, and bars, visit cinemas and use inter-regional trains.

However, the government wants to enact a law by the middle of this month which would drop that health pass and stop unvaccinated people from being able to enter hospitality venues, essentially banning unvaccinated people from public life.

President Emmanuel Macron has been outspoken about his thoughts on those who refuse to get vaccinated and promised to make their lives miserable, which sparked backlash across the nation.

“I’m not for pissing off the French … Now the unvaccinated, I really want to piss them off. And so, we’re going to keep doing it, until the end. This is the strategy,” Macron said during an interview with Le Parisien earlier this month.

Macron added that while he “won’t send [unvaccinated people] to prison”, he “will make their lives more complicated and encourage people who refuse to get vaccinated to do so by “limiting as much as possible their access to activities in social life.”

“So we need to tell them—from Jan. 15, you will no longer be able to go to the restaurant. You will no longer be able to go for a coffee, you will no longer be able to go to the theatre. You will no longer be able to go to the cinema,” he said.

France is one of the most highly vaccinated countries in the world, with more than 90 percent of people aged 12 and older being fully vaccinated.
