On 8 April a German court in Weimar ruled that schools are not allowed to impose masks, distancing & testing as this is neither necessary (PCR tests do not prove infection) nor are there benefits, but to the contrary harms children, their development and infringes on their rights.

Johnson telling us now that the seasonal decline in flu type diseases is all down to lockdowns (not vax).

Johnson realises at this stage that there is no amount of BS Brits won't swallow. 

Research papers showing lockdowns haven't worked keep pouring out, all totally ignored by the PM and SAGE who stick to their fake models.

Haha, people really still believe this merry-go-round nonsense.

He is of course just paving the way for more lockdowns later in the year.

If @BorisJohnson thinks the vaccines aren't the reason why we've seen plunging death rates from Covid among those who've been jabbed, he should probably also have a word with the @BorisJohnson who tweeted this last Friday... Left hand, meet right hand.

Lockdown & masks UK vs no Lockdown & no masks Sweden.



IM @ianmSC  'Boris Johnson: Lockdowns are responsible for any reductions in deaths or other numbers Sweden: Lower numbers with no lockdown.'


Both lockdowns and masks actually cause harm.

Quarter of Covid deaths not caused by virus, new figures show (telegraph.co.uk)

The reality is likely to be far more. 50% of patents who tested positive for covid in hospital were asymptomatic.

Hospital's were teeming with the virus, many would have come into contact with it.

As we know that's all it takes to test positive with a PCR run at 45 cycle thresholds even if you already had immunity.

A positive PCR only meant you had had contact with covid within the previous 28 days, not that you ever had the disease, yet if you tested positive that's what went on the death certificate regardless of what you might actually have died of and were admitted to hospital for.

So, just a reminder that the flu no longer exists and Covid19, which has replaced it, has a Infection Fatality Rate almost identical to it 🤔




''According to a meta-analysis by Dr John Ioannidis [Professor of Medicine at Stanford University] of every seroprevalence study conducted to date of publication with a supporting scientific paper (74 estimates from 61 studies and 51 different localities around the world), the median infection survival rate from COVID-19 infection is 99.77 per cent. For COVID-19 patients under 70, the meta-analysis finds an infection survival rate of 99.95 per cent.''

(From the linked article in the above post)

The WHO does not refute this and has in fact published Dr Ioannidis's work on their own web site.


Abir Ballan @abirballan

A recent study by John Ioannidis @Stanford adjusts the infection fatality rate (IFR) of COVID19 from 0.23% (previous estimate) to 0.15%. It is now almost identical to the IFR of the flu.



the WHO has just changed it's mind, they've now decided that Covid19 is an influenza after all.

Getting dizzy on this never ending merry-go-round yet?




By the way, here is the research paper showing Covid19 has an IFR of 0.15% (basically the same as flu). Mentioned in quoted post.

World leaders, literally in concert, start to down play the roll of vaccines in controlling covid in prep for the next round of lockdowns.

There can not be a single person left on the entire planet who doesn't yet realise we are all being played FFS.


On April 10, China began downplaying their own vaccine. This is EXTRAORDINARY as the CCP never admits fault for anything, suggesting an ulterior motive. Days later, @WHO, then Fauci, @BorisJohnson and @JustinTrudeau followed, downplaying vaccines and calling for more lockdowns.

Absolutely brilliant interview with Dr Naomi Wolf, former advisor to the Clinton administration and life long Democrat.

She is a genius and succinctly encapsulates exactly what is happening right now and what is the immediate future.

This 50 min podcast, in my opinion, is the most important thing you will hear all year. If this doesn't make you wake up, open your eyes and stand up then you must be certifiably brain dead.

Interviewed by Steve Bannon (yeah yeah old right winger blah blah poo poo etc etc) who doesn't get a word in edgewise anyway except to announce the 3 30 sec sponsored ads.

So, the vaccines are not actually vaccines because the don't protect you from getting covid but might just reduce the symptoms somewhat, for a disease were 99.9% experience only mild symptoms anyway.

With the animal studies of previous types of mRNA medications the real test was 6 - 12 months after injection when the autoimmune system malfunctions started to show, should be interesting as no one knows what's going to happen next because these vaccines were allowed to skip the animal testing phase.


Now that the plan has been shown to work are you ready for the gear change from covid lockdowns to climate change lockdowns yet?

The WHO starts flashing hints.


WHO warns a coronavirus vaccine alone will not end pandemic (cnbc.com)


And if the covid models were a deliberate fear mongering total exaggeration take a look at the climate change ones.




Meanwhile Fauci over steps the line and gets a well deserved ear full.

Save Lives! zero covid, zero climate 'disorders'. The fact that both are an un-natural impossibility doesn't matter because the real goal is social control via CCP style digital identity tracking and surveillance.

Marcon pushes the agenda gear change from covid to climate change. Future restrictions on individual energy use, esp travel, would seem inevitable.

China would need to shut 600 coal fired power stations just to hit their CO2 reduction targets and won't be CO2 neutral until 2060. But China is actually building them twice as fast as the rest of the world are decommissioning them. 

Looking at the 'models' in the post above probably not much point (not that models can be trusted).

A year of misinformation produced by govt science 'experts' and peddled by the BBC and Sky, while encouraging real science experts who disagree with them to be ridiculed and deplatformed, is backfiring as the public lose trust in their leaders and news organisations.

In the US people are waking up and highlighting the shocking degree if ignorance of the issues of those who relied on MSM news.

While Johnson claims that his lockdowns were a success the UK had one of the highest death rates in Europe, the reality of Sweden and Florida proved him wrong long ago.

In actual fact he made things worse by following the Gov'n of New York in emptying the hospitals sending covid infected elderly back to care homes.

Exactly the opposite of what was needed and directly against original pandemic plans that concentrated on protecting the vulnerable.

All totally ignored by the media of course.

MSM slowly waking up from a year-long self-induced coma ...

''Don’t put one illness above all other problems in society, a condition known as “Covid mania.”

''... it also has a low mortality rate among most people and especially the young—estimated at 0.01% for people under 40—and therefore never posed a serious threat to social and economic institutions.''

''... Covid mania crowded out reasoned and wise policy making.''

''Covid mania has also wreaked havoc on science and its influence on policy.''

'er... the people that were ordered to lockdown didn't, and the people who weren't ordered to lockdown did ... er'

''Why it's almost like these 'vaccines' don't do the one thing vaccines are supposed to do...''


An unvaccinated worker set off an outbreak at a U.S. nursing home where most residents were immunized. - The New York Times (nytimes.com)

Reminder (from previous post) that SAGE expect of deaths in next wave 70% will be of those who have been vaccinated. Mostly because of age group but also because of Vaccine Enhanced Disease (also mentioned in a previous post). As in the video directly above, in animal studies in previous attempts to create gene altering vaccines ALL the ferrets died, usually on contact with the wild version of the virus between 3 and 12 months after vaccination which caused a fatal autoimmune response.

New York Times on Friday with deliberate misinformation. Claims the 2020 covid pandemic was worse than the 1918 Spanish flu by 'forgetting' to add the population change to the calculations.

3rd time so far seen someone from MSM try to pull this stunt.


Makes you wonder, given the total havoc caused by govts over the last year, how come there has been no political opposition or MSM journalistic questioning - at all. Only on social media but even there big tech is doing all it can to de-platform dissenters. Science is dying.

    • GlaxoSmithKline Q2 revenue is expected to show revenue growth from newer drugs partially offset by increased generic competition in older drugs. Source: Bloomberg   Shares GlaxoSmithKline Price Revenue Vaccine Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization  Shaun Murison | Senior Market Analyst, Johannesburg | Publication date: Tuesday 27 July 2021  When is GlaxoSmithKline earnings date? The GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) earnings release date is scheduled for the 28 July 2021. The scheduled results will cover the groups second quarter and half-year earnings.   GSK results preview: What does the street expect? While GlaxoSmithKline (in partnership with Sanofi Pasteur) look to stage three trials of their Covid-19 vaccine, the company has not yet released a vaccine to market. The global rollout of Covid-19 vaccines (by competitors) looks to have disrupted the course of other vaccine programmes in key markets such as the US and the UK for GSK. Revenue for second quarter (Q2) 2021 is expected to be bolstered by sales of newer drugs in the respiratory and HIV segments, with a partial offset from older drugs which are finding increased competition through generic offerings. In terms of the upcoming results, a mean of analyst estimates compiled by Refinitiv data arrive at the following: Revenue $10.433 billion (+10.27%) year on year (YoY) Earnings before interest tax depreciation amortisation (EBITDA) $2.855 billion (-8.91% YoY) Earnings per share (EPS) $0.51 (+10.87% YoY) How to trade the GlaxoSmithKline results   Source: Refinitiv   A Refinitiv poll of analyst ratings arrive have a long term consensus rating of ‘buy’ for GlaxoSmithKline with a target price $47.87. GlaxoSmithKline (ADR) share price: technical analysis   Source: IG The share price of GlaxoSmithKline continues to trade in an uptrend which has been in place since the beginning of March 2021. The price has however started to correct from near term highs. The correction sees the price now testing support at the 38.85 level. Traders looking for long entry might prefer to see a bullish price reversal around current levels accompanied by a sharper move out of oversold territory by the Stochastic oscillator. In this scenario, the recent high at 40.55 would become the initial resistance target, while a close below 38.35 could be used as a stop loss consideration for the trade. However should a bullish price reversal not manifest and we see the price move to close below both the 38.85 and 38.35 support levels, this could instead be a suggestion that the uptrend has failed and perhaps a new downtrend for the share price is forming. In Summary GSK reports Q2 2021 results on the 28 July Q2 revenue of $10.433 billion (+10.27% YoY) is expected Q2 EBITDA of $2.855 billion (-8.91% YoY) are expected EPS $0.51 (+10.87% YoY) in the Q2 are expected The average long term broker rating for GSK is a ‘buy’ The share price of GSK is testing support as it finds itself in a short-term correction of a longer-term uptrend
    • Alibaba continues to enjoy strong revenue and customer growth, but the decline in its stock price reflects a bleaker outlook thanks to the actions of the Chinese government. Source: Bloomberg   Shares Alibaba Group China Investor IPO Price  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 27 July 2021    When is Alibaba’s earnings date? Alibaba reports earnings on 3 August, covering its fiscal first quarter (Q1). Alibaba earnings – what to expect Alibaba is expected to report revenue of $32 billion, with earnings per share of $2.24. Alibaba continues to enjoy excellent growth, achieving one billion customers in the 2021 financial year (FY2021), with the vast majority of these based in China. Profit margins and revenues have risen at a steady pace in every year since 2013, at 10% and 23% respectively. However, for Chinese tech shares such as Alibaba, the main concern is no longer business performance, but the attitude of the Chinese government instead. The cancellation of the Ant Financial initial public offering (IPO) and the current clampdown on tutoring stocks points towards a much more restrictive approach to the private sector. As many could have predicted, the culture clash between free market capitalism and the controlling instincts of the Chinese Communist Party has begun anew, with the Party determined to rein in the perceived excesses of the free market. This is a situation unfamiliar to many investors, unused to the impact of government interference on most companies except in relatively isolated circumstances, and accounts for the underperformance of Chinese shares, with Alibaba no exception. Find out more on how to buy, sell, and short Alibaba shares Alibaba broker ratings A total of 17 analysts currently rate Alibaba as a ‘strong buy’, with 30 more at ‘buy’. Three analysts have a ‘hold’ rating, and only one ‘sell’. Alibaba stock – technical analysis The direction in Alibaba stock is clear for the time being. Rallies have been regularly sold, with the latest bounce in late June running into the 100-day simple moving average (SMA), currently 22,225. With the macro outlook so unfavourable the stock continues to reflect investor caution, so it looks like further declines are on the cards as the price targets 18,000 and lower.   Source: ProRealTime A solid business, but outlook continues to darken Alibaba has plenty to commend it from a fundamental perspective, but with Beijing adopting an activist position the stock continues to decline. Investors might argue that this means Alibaba is becoming a bargain, but traders will want to see a turnaround in the price, which is unlikely to happen unless the Chinese government reduces its interventions.
    • EUR/USD, GBP/USD and NZD/USD weaken from Fibonacci resistance EUR/USD, GBP/USD and NZD/USD turn lower after posting a deep 76.4% Fibonacci retracement.   Forex NZD/USD EUR/USD GBP/USD Pound sterling Euro    Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 27 July 2021  EUR/USD turning lower from latest retracement EUR/USD has managed to post yet another 76.4% Fibonacci retracement, with the pair heading lower once again. This highlights how the trend seen over the course of the past two months remains worth following. While the trend is very shallow in nature, that does bring a higher likeliness of a deep retracement. As such, a bearish outlook holds from here, with a push up through the prior swing-high of $1.183 required to negate that downside bias. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD turning lower after 76.4% retracement GBP/USD has started to lose ground in early trade today, following the rally into the 76.4% Fibonacci resistance level at $1.383. With a wider bearish trend playing out over recent months, there is a good chance we see further downside from here. A rise up through the $1.391 level would be required to negate that outlook. Source: ProRealTime NZD/USD slumps after deep pullback NZD/USD has similarly turned lower after a 76.4% Fibonacci retracement yesterday. The wider downtrend points towards such a move coming into play, with a rise through $0.7045 required to negate that bearish outlook. Until then, further weakness looks likely from here.
