There is no going back

“[People] want to go back to the way things were, but I know the truth. There’s no going back. You’ve changed things. Forever.”

The Joker’s speech might one day be hailed as prophecy. For more than just that one line.

People are, indeed, claiming they want to get back to the ‘old normal’ but that’s not possible now. Truth is, a lot of people didn’t actually like the old normal. Their lives were empty of meaning, the drudge of the daily grind was getting them down. And I can understand that even though I didn’t really experience it.

I was one of the lucky ones most of the time. Got a degree, worked in research, got another degree, ran my own research, was eventually made redundant, set up on my own with my own research/consultancy lab… and now retired with a fledgeling publishing business. Every job I had, including my four year stint as a janitor, was my choice. I enjoyed those jobs, I learned a lot (especially from the janitor job) and while none of them was ever going to make me rich, I feel like I had a good time in life.

Even the utterly skint times (none of my qualifications ever included any lessons on managing finances) weren’t so terrible, looking back, although sometimes it would be hard to convince my past self of that. Especially the ‘gap in the CV’ that I had to gloss over often. What the hell. I survived. I’m still here, still not rich and still filling in a tax return that I am confident won’t end up with me paying the wasters any money. I earn what I need and not a penny more. And my needs these days are few.

Things have changed. There can be no return to ‘old normal’. People have lost trust in so many things now. Including things I lost trust in a long time ago – but it’s been far, far worse the last few years.

I haven’t had more than a faint trust in politicians since I started paying attention to it. That was when Monochrome Man took over from the Iron Lady as the Prime Monster. Okay, she wasn’t perfect but he was bloody useless. Then the Blair Witch project got under way and things have gone downhill fast from there, and they are still going down. I do not see any return to trust in any political party within my lifetime.

I trusted science, hell, I was in it and thought it was about chasing knowledge. As my last boss said when he retired, “When I started we were chasing knowledge. Now we are just chasing money” and he was right. Nobody in charge of any research establishment gave a shit about knowledge by the time I took that redundancy package. It was all about how much money the project would bring. There was no interest at all in whether it was actually worth doing. To get the next money, your current project had to get the result the sponsor wanted. That was not what I signed up for.

That is not how science is supposed to work but in these days of extremely expensive machinery, science does need a lot of funding. And administrators and managers who know sod all about what they are administrating or managing need the latest Audis. To hell with real research, just get the money.

The same is true in the health service. Something I trusted right up until they cancelled my uncle’s cancer treatments that led to his death on Christmas Eve 2020. He didn’t die of Covid and he didn’t get any vaccine. He died of NHS neglect.

So many have died alone and neglected, their family forbidden to visit, because of a disease that it now turns out has killed fewer people than the annual flu. Now they are pushing ‘vaccines’ that do not do what real vaccines do because they are being paid to push them. To hell with actual health or patient care.

The result? People, like me, who were happy to get their kids vaccinated against measles, mumps, rubella, and a host of other things – some of which I had to go through as a child because there weren’t vaccines yet so I made sure my kids didn’t have to suffer them – are now questioning all vaccines. Not just these experimental mRNA gene therapy jabs. They are questioning – and refusing – long established vaccines against tetanus and polio and everything else. Well done, SAGE. Well done indeed. You have done so much better than simply ‘fail’, you have earned yourself a double fail with honours. You have destroyed all trust in the standard vaccines and in the entirety of the medical profession. And you did it all for a bit of fame and money. Are you proud? Are you just itching to tell your grandchildren what you did? Did you think anyone, anywhere, would see you as the good guys/

If I wore a wooden mask and rattled a gourd at you while chanting incomprehensible gibberish, you’d likely have as much trust in the result as if you went to a GP – if you can find one. Right at the start of this scam they all buggered off into Zoom diagnoses from their villas in Portugal and some of them still won’t see you unless you have taken a stab of the potion.

Tip: If your doctor won’t see you unless you’ve been jabbed, that doctor has no fucking clue about health and is best avoided forever. They are nothing more than Pharmer salesmen.

As are so many now. They are taught not to heal, but to treat. The Pharmers don’t want to cure anything. They want lifelong customers and they have pushed the medical profession in that direction. As in science, money is a powerful motivator for the suits in admin.

Trust in the police and the entire legal system is pretty much screwed too. I witnessed a car accident three years ago and had it on the dashcam. So I took the video to the police station – I had a front row view of what happened. I am now on my fourth call to court, it will be almost four years since it happened, it’s on video and I don’t know what they expect me to say. It just keeps being pushed back. I will never, ever, do this again.

The police have enforced not sitting on a bench in a park, they have enforced not having family and friends for a party unless MPs of all parties do it. They have ignored serious crimes to spend their efforts on all this and they think they are trusted? There is no going back.

Yes, I know there are good people in science, in medicine and in the police. There might even be one good person in Parliament although I doubt it. It seems like a long shot.

If there are, they are silent. They let the shouty idiots control what is happening and in their silence they are complicit.

Oh I know they are not all evil. There are still scientists who actually practice science. There are police who don’t waste time on bench sitters. There are doctors who see through the Covid scam. There are politicians who can’t be bought… well maybe I’m going too far with that one.

You’ve seen it now. The man behind the curtain. You can’t slink back into innocence. That ‘old normal’ is gone. Forever. You now know the news is fake, you know politicians lie, you know most science is bought and the police are obeying orders you never gave them.

There is no going back. There is only going forward. What will the fuure be like? Well, there are those who have decided what it willl be like.

Whether you accept it, well that’s up to you.

Deltacron

It sounds like a bad guy from a Marvel comic, but this is apparently the latest ‘scary thing’ you all have to live in terror of. Well, if you want terror, I’m your go-to guy and I’ll be happy to ramp it up since you all seem to enjoy it so much.

But first, a bit of a laugh. About 24 hours ago, when the news mentioned that Delta and Omicron had apparently combined, I put this on Twitter –

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Tonight, the Daily Mail (thanks are due to David Davis on Farcebok for the link) have actually gone with the Deltacron name!

Come on. They haven’t run out of Greek letters yet. They could have given it a new one but, well, that wouldn’t resonate with the perpetually terrified, would it? No, making it sound like one of the bad guys from a Transformers film, or something you need Iron Man and the Hulk to deal with, that’s so much scarier.

It has been identified, people have been infected with it, and nobody has died or are even reported to be hospitalised. And yet, this is the Terrible Thing now.

I admit I was suspicious at the sudden apparent rollback of the Covid narrative. No more free LF tests, talk of ‘we have to learn to live with it’, and at the same time a massive push to get everyone to take the experimental jabs. The harms from these jabs have now reached a level where even the MSM can’t completely ignore it all. So, how to keep it all going?

Roll back restrictions, roll back mandates, and then report an new Terrible Thing and wait for the drones to demand the reinstatement of all those restrictions. Oh, they will, and then governments can say ‘it’s not our fault, you demanded this’.

You’re in a game and you’re losing. The blame for all these idiotic measures is about to shift from them to you and you’re going to let it happen. Then, when it inevitably falls apart, it’ll be your fault, not the other side’s. It’s a clever play, I have to admit, and most people won’t see it because most people will not even remember ’15 days to flatten the curve’ from over two years ago. That’s the distant past now. Today it’s ‘We wear masks and get jabbed. We have always worn masks and been jabbed’.

The ‘seatbelt analogy’ keeps coming up. You wear seatbelts, why is that different from being vaccinated?

Well, my car is now over 16 years old. I have not had to add new seatbelts every few months, the original ones still work. When I get out of the car I take off the seatbelt. It’s not required outside the car. I cannot take out the vaccines I have had over my lifetime even if I never come in contact with the diseases they protect against.

That’s never bothered me. All those vaccines did me no harm and might (I’ll never know for sure) have stopped me catching a whole range of nasty diseases. It’s rather like any other form of disease prevention – as long as you don’t catch the disease, it’s working. When it works at a population level then it’s much more convincing.

These new mRNA vaccines do not work either at population or individual level. Those who take them still get the disease they were triple-vaccinated against at the same rate as those who didn’t get any at all. The propaganda claims this doesn’t show the vaccines aren’t working. Yes it does. It really does. If you have 70% of your population vaccinated, and 70% of those sick enough to go to hospital are vaccinated then the vaccine is doing nothing at all. Well, not quite. It’s putting people in hospital for vaccine side effects as well as those hospitalised for the disease they are supposed to be vaccinated against. So it’s worse than useless. It’s on track to kill and permanently injure more than covid ever could.

So now we have the Deltacron. Viciously dangerous and easily transmissible. Which is not actually possible.

See, the reason viruses get to the ‘easily transmissible’ stage is that they don’t cause serious symptoms any more. They have mutated into a mild variant that spreads fast because it doesn’t make people very ill, whereas the vicious variant puts people in bed for a week or more.

You simply can’t have both. If it makes people really ill, they have no choice about self-isolation because they can’t get out of bed. So it doesn’t spread far. If it makes people only mild-cold ill, they can still go out and spread it. A vicious variant that spreads far and wide simply cannot happen.

Still, people want to be scared of it and I do like to scare people, so I’m considering a story for the Spring Anthology that should empty a few bowels among those whose bowels are already on the edge of eruption. Well why not? It’s what they want. I consider it a public service.

Okay, best get back to finishing the tax return, even though I really don’t want to. The wasters in government really should not be encouraged by giving them money.

But… they will send their goons to arrest you if you don’t.

The Eve of the War

If, like me, you are a committed jabby dodger and are triple-unvaccinated (soon to be quadruple-unvaccinated), then watch out. Uncle Fester has declared war on us.

This new wave of covid is a mild version. South Africa has had it for weeks and have seen no surge in hospitalisations. An effect mirrored in the UK in Brackley, Northamptonshire. That town has the highest rate of omicron infections in the UK, 926 per 100,000 people, and yet the hospitals there are not seeing any surge in admissions.

It’s mutated into a cold. They all do eventually. Catch this and you’re also immune to Delta and the other variants. Unlike the vaccinated, you will also have antibiodies to its core proteins, the nucleocapsid, not just the spike protein on its surface. Variants don’t change the core proteins anywhere near as much as the outer proteins, because the core proteins are what keeps the RNA intact. Mess about too much with those proteins and it’s no longer a viable virus.

I’ll try an analogy. Take a car. The RNA is the engine, the core proteins are the chassis and the outer coat is the body shell. You keep this car in a garage it fits into perfectly.

You can change the paint colour, makes no difference at all. But you want to change the body shell. So your car becomes a van, or a flatbed truck, or a recovery vehicle with a crane on the back – and now it doesn’t fit in your garage. So you put it in a different garage.

Change the outer coat of a virus and the immune system thinks it’s new. Maybe it can’t stick to receptors it used to stick to when infecting, but maybe it can now stick to different receptors. Big changes in the outer coat will, most times, render the virus a dud. Sometimes those changes give it an edge over the immune system. But, like that car you turned into a tow truck, you can make big changes to the outside and the system still works.

Mess with the chassis (core protein) too much and the engine (RNA) falls out. You are limited in the changes you can make there.

So, antibodies against the core proteins are important, and the vaccines don’t give you those.

Now, Uncle Fester (and others) are declaring that the failure of the vaccines is because of those that didn’t take it. No, it’s because the vaccines are basically crap. They make your own cells produce the spike protein so your immune system can make antibodies to it but the spike proteins on variants of the virus can change. The boosters aren’t accounting for that change, they are the same as the first two shots. The only accounting going on here is in vaccine manufacturers’ bank accounts. The spike proteins are also the most dangerous part of the virus, over a year ago they were shown to be pathoenic on their own.

If you have antibodies to the core proteins then it doesn’t matter if the spike protein changes, even if it does change enough to dodge antibodies. Big changes to the core proteins means a dud virus – it won’t be able to stabilise its RNA so it won’t work. So they don’t change much in any viable variant. Antibodies against those proteins will give you a wider range of immunity to variants than antibodies to the spike.

There’s also the small matter that when the immune system finds a cell producing spike protein, it considers that cell infected and kills it. If that happens in your arm, no biggie. You’ll get a sore arm and the killed cells will be replaced.

If it happens in your heart muscle, you’re in trouble. That muscle does not regenerate. You’re left with permanent scarring and a damaged heart for the rest of your life. If it happens in your brain, well, you won’t remember reading this so there’s no point going into detail.

These mRNA shots should not be getting into the bloodstream, but they are. There is an army of quickly-trained jabbers, many of whom don’t know how to test if the needle is in a blood vessel or in muscle. Or simply don’t understand why it’s important. If it gets into the bloodstream it’s everywhere in your body within minutes. Your immune system is killing off cells it thinks are infected all over the place. That’s when you get the really seriously bad reactions.

So this ‘war on the unvaccinated’ is shifting blame. The government know these jabs aren’t working as any kind of defence against covid. They know the omicron variant is basically a cold. They know about the rapidly increasing list of adverse reactions to the vaccine. They know omicron is not going to overwhelm the NHS. They are using the term ‘with’ not ‘of’ to describe people in hospital ‘with’ omicron because they know perfectly well it wasn’t omicron that put them there. They went in for some other reason and tested positive after admission. Many will have caught this cold after admission, as in Denmark.

So why are they pushing the scare dial to 11?

Well. They have become used to having these energency powers that let them bypass Parliament and they don’t want to relinquish them.

If omicron turns out to be a better vaccine than the vaccine (it is) then the gravy train hits the buffers and government powers are gone.

They’ve already bought enough of this stuff to give us all at least ten shots each. It’ll all have to be binned and the cost accounted for if we just get immunity from a cold.

Their dream of a Chinese style social credit score through vaccine passes will evaporate. It should never have been considered in the first place but they’ve committed so hard into it now, they can’t just drop it.

Many other reasons, not least of which is that, as the truth filters out, quite a few people who think they are important are going to be looking at serious jail time. They know it. Some are doubling down, like Uncle Fester. Some, like the SAGE modeller the Spectator talked to, have admitted that the ‘models’ are driven by policy, not the other way around. There is a lot of arse covering going on.

There are multiple things happening under the cover of covid, none of them for our benefit. One blog post can’t cover them all.

The one to watch at the moment, especially if you’re a jabby dodger, is the frantic attempt by those who caused this mess to shift the blame to you. Tough times are coming.

Be ready.

The Clots

An interesting article from M.J. McFadden. Seems the CDC have noticed an issue with blood clots in the J&J vaccine.

I’m seeing a lot more reports of concern than they are talking about, in all these vaccines. They mostly seem to affect younger people, I’d guess (and it is just a guess) that it’s because they have more active immune systems that are reacting, sometimes, a bit too violently to the injections. The worst effects seem to appear much less often in older people.

But then it’s hard to tell for sure. My own father died of a pulmonary embolism – a blood clot in his lungs – before the Covid circus got under way and long before any vaccines appeared. He was 82. Someone of that age dying really isn’t unusual. Also he had suffered a few strokes so wasn’t in the rudest of health – although his mind remained sharp as a razor, his body was clearly wearing out.

So someone in their eighties gets jabbed and then dies because of a blood clot – it’s impossible to say their time wasn’t up anyway and that the jab had anything to do with it.

However, when people in their twenties and thirties start having heart attacks and blood clots, that’s different. Oh yes, it has always happened, I recall a story some years back where a member of a boy band died suddenly of an undiagnosed heart condition, but it’s now happening on a scale never seen before. Sportsmen and women are toppling over at an unprecedented rate and you can’t hide it when it happens in a televised match.

Sure, you can still legitimately say it’s ‘rare’. A few thousand cases is still ‘rare’ when you’ve injected tens of millions. Most people won’t have any adverse reaction, but it’s a bit like ‘syringe roulette’. Six chambers in the gun, one bullet, five shots fall on an empty chamber and nobody gets hurt. As long as you’re not the unlucky one…

Let’s say you inject ten million people and one percent have an adverse reaction. That’s a hundred thousand bad reactions. Say, maybe, 0.1% die from the injection. That’s ten thousand people. 0.01% is a thousand. You can legitimately claim it’s rare, but those kinds of numbers are going to be noticed. Remember, they have now injected far, far more than ten million people.

Now, people are lining up for shot 4. Is it still an empty chamber this time, or is this one the bullet? Shots 5 and 6 are in the pipeline and have already been mentioned by the ghouls in government. Keep going long enough and eventually, the chamber won’t be empty.

On the basis of available information (and the government ‘scientists’ have been caught lying so many times now, it’s hard to work out what the real data even looks like), it seems the information put out by vaccine manufacturers at the start of all this was correct.

For the elderly (over 70) the risk from the original covid was greater than the risk from the vaccines. Under 60, certainly under 50, the vaccine risk is actually higher than the risk from covid. Mad Hancock even stood up in Parliament and stated that these vaccines were intended for the over 50s (they’ve been gradually reducing the age all along) and that they were never going to be injected into children. Now, in the UK, they are going into 12 year old arms.

But then this is the same government that stated categorically that they would never introduce the vaccine passports they are now introducing. The same government who stated that “15 million jabs and it’s over.” The same government who stated “Take two shots and your life goes back to normal.” Incredibly, there are people who still trust the government.

There are people who trust the NHS, even though it has now closed and is no more than a jab distributor. Don’t get sick unless you have private insurance. You’ll find you’ll see the same doctor, just with an extra bill attached. The NHS, I’m afraid, is now nothing more than a protection racket. You pay for it through taxes or you go to jail. Use it? Ah, no, you can’t actually use it. It’s the textbook definition of a protection racket now.

People still trust the Police, even the Met who have decided it’s illegal to avoid their facial recognition cameras but they’ll fine you for not wearing a mask. Catch-22 missed that one.

There are still good people in the NHS and the police. I’m not sure I can say the same for the government. Those good people dare not speak out because they’ll lose their jobs. A few have… and lost their jobs.

There is talk of ousting Boris and replacing him. I don’t see the point. He’s not in charge and the next one won’t be in charge either. Boris is, I think, trying to resist the worst excesses of those in charge and that will be why they want him replaced. If they put the bug-eyed Gove or Stabby Jabby in his place I think things will get far, far worse.

Anyway. I have to try to sleep. Tomorrow the engineer is due to finally replace the landline connection and engineers like to be around in daylight. Yes, it’s weird but what can you do? So I have to be awake in what, for me, is normally the middle of sleep time and that means trying to sleep now.

Once the landline is in I’ll be confident about accessing bank accounts and tax records again. It might be tinhat-foilery but I’ve never quite trusted the mobile phone connection. When it goes down the wire I feel like I know where it’s going, but 4G goes all over the place.

I’m not at all worried about 5G. By the time it gets out here I’ll likely be long dead.

The decline and fall of the Covid empire

First of all, the Christmas anthology is now finished. It’s on Amazon in print and Kindle and on Smashwords in a variety of eBook formats. I have also (at last) managed to update Mark Ellott’s ‘Sinistre’, a book of Western short stories, with a new cover designed by his neice and an extra story included. I managed to get Justin Sanebridge’s Christmas story book done before the storm took everything out and I should have Marsha Webb’s book of Christmas tales done in a few days.

I still have quite a backlog but it is gradually getting shorter. Not bad going considering I still have no landline internet and am doing it all over a mobile-phone hotspot. I did fork out for a lot more data, but it’s worth it. It does look like the landline is down over quite some distance so it could be a while.

So. About this virus. I’ll try not to get too technical, I know that several decades in a line of work leaves you thinking that the jargon you use is understood by all, so I’ll be checking myself a lot for this one. I will probably get distracted and sidelined anyway.

Okay. There are several hundred types of virus that cause the common cold. Yes, some of them are coronaviruses. Some are rhinoviruses, some are adenoviruses, there is a whole raft of different genera that give you the sniffles. This is why there is no cure and no vaccine for the common cold – there are so many different viruses that cause the same symptoms, no single cure or vaccine can possibly get them all.

Another reason why there’s no cure or vaccine is that the common cold doesn’t matter. Typically you feel like crap for a few days, your nose turns from Niagra Falls into the crustier parts of the surface of Mercury and then it goes away. You’re left with a sore nose and a tired feeling. There’s no point getting all ’emergency room’ about it. Just stay home, get some whisky down you and wait it out.

The thing is, many of those cold viruses didn’t start out as cold viruses. Many of them started out as very nasty and very dangerous respiratory viruses. Over time they became milder, until they developed into something that’s just an inconvenience.

Did they do this on purpose? No. As with the current idiotic government line that ‘omicron will seek out the unvaccinated’ (incidentally, ‘omicron’ is an anagram of ‘moronic’, which seems apt), nothing a virus does is premedidated. Nothing a virus does is even a thing the virus realises it’s doing because the virus has no brain. No nervous system. No metabolism. It’s not even a whole cell.

Take one cell from your body and put it to one side. What will it do? In your body it had a role but outside it will just die. Take one of your cells apart and take out a mitochondrion. It will die too. Take out the nucleus, packed with DNA. Nope. It will die. Although now, we are at the philosophical stage of ‘what is alive?’

A single human cell can be said to be alive. It consumes energy, it can reproduce, it produces waste as it consumes energy. Some of them, like immune system cells, can move.

But the nucleus is a bag of DNA. It doesn’t do anything. Take it out of the cell and it can’t really be classed as alive. Mitochondria are a little different, they are what gives you enough energy to not be a land jellyfish. They have their own DNA and they reproduce when the cell reproduces but they do it independently of the cell’s reproductive process. They are about the size of bacteria but they can’t live for long outside their host cell.

All the parts of a single human cell are far more complex and much bigger than a virus. A virus, when it’s a virus, is not alive. It’s a bit of DNA or RNA in a coating of either protein or fat-membrane with proteins floating around in it. It has no awareness of its environment. It has no means to determine that the environment even exists. It is a bag of chemical reactions waiting to happen. That’s all. It is even less aware of the world around it than a politician.

A virus is a bit of DNA or RNA encased in protein or fat with protein. With coronaviruses, the hand washing thing was good advice and still is. Those viruses have a fatty membrane coating with proteins sticking out of it and soap will make the outer coating fall apart. With the outer coating gone, the attachment proteins are lost too and the RNA inside can’t do a damn thing on its own.

There is one more group of viruses, the retroviruses. These contain RNA and an enzyme called ‘reverse transcriptase’ that converts their RNA into DNA when they get into a host cell. Then they pack up new viruses with RNA and the enzyme. Why don’t they just load up the new ones with DNA? They can’t. They have no consciousness, they are a bundle of chemical reactions and nothing more. They do not think in any form at all.

When a virus gets into a cell it could be considered alive. Just. But inside the cell it’s not an intact virus. It’s a bit of DNA or RNA that’s copying itself and making new virus coats. It still has no metabolism of its own and the new viruses it creates are inert chemical lumps that will only get into a new cell by pure chance. They will not ‘seek out’ anyone.

The difference between DNA and RNA is that DNA is more stable, and cells have ways to fix it if it breaks. So in a ‘proper’ cell, the DNA can be considered the main blueprint. It’s the master instruction sheet for the cell. Eukaryotes (cells with nuclei like human ones and most ‘higher’ cells) keep all this in a membrane-enclosed nucleus, grouped into chromosomes. Prokaryotes (mainly bacteria) have it in a single circular strand. Both have the means to fix breaks.

RNA can be considered as photocopies of the main instructions. They will be produced by ‘photocopying’ the DNA and they’ll go off to the cell’s 3D printers (ribosomes) to be made into proteins. The thing is, the RNA gets worn out in the process which is a good thing – it means the cell doesn’t keep making the same protein any longer than it’s needed. If it needs more it sends out more RNA from the DNA, but the DNA remains untouched.

A virus, whether DNA or RNA based, has no means to repair damage. It will mutate, it will throw up errors in replication all the time. RNA ones, like Coronaviruses, will throw out far more errors than DNA viruses but both will produce variants.

So, why do they turn into common colds? is it some magical cosmic viral consciosness?

Nope. It’s much simpler.

The variants range from those that can kill to those that just make you mildly ill. The vicious ones confine people to bed and have everyone around them taking serious precautions. The mild ones, nobody cares.

So the mild version spreads. There is also an element of the first round taking out those most vulnerable, which means the nasty one has really nowhere left to go, but then the mild one confers immunity to the nasty one too.

Soon, only the mild version is left. Another one on the common cold list. You get that, you won’t get the nasty one.

Covid has reached this point with the moronic – sorry, omicron variant. It has joined the common cold ranks. As it was always destined to do.

It’s time to give it up, Boris. You’ve lost.

You’ve lost so very, very much.

Smallpox

I don’t know if I had the smallpox vaccine. I was around in the 1960s when it was still being given but it wasn’t compulsory then. The compulsion ended before 1900, but the vaccine worked so well that smallpox was eradicated in the wild by 1980.

It’s probably in my medical records somewhere, but it doesn’t matter. There is no smallpox any more.

So, how was this acheived, and why isn’t it now done with more viruses? Well, smallpox was something of a unique disease. It only affected humans, it didn’t have an animal reservoir. Coronaviruses are found in bats and other animals, so are cold and flu viruses and most other diseases. Smallpox, however, only ever affected humans – so all we had to do was make sure nobody caught it and it died out. That’s not going to work with anything else.

Smallpox is gone, and yet it’s back in the news. Bill Gates suggested that a bioterrorist could use smallpox to launch an attack. The FDA has approved a new smallpox vaccine and Canada has ordered millions of doses. Why?

None of it makes any sense at all. Why a ‘new’ vaccine? The old one did the job exceptionally well. If there is any risk of a return of smallpox, why not just make more of that one? Well of course there’d be no money in it – the ‘new’ one will still be in its profit phase.

Why would anyone order millions of doses? The only smallpox in existence is in a very few, very secure laboratories. Anyone wanting to study it should of course be vaccinated, but as it no longer exists in the wild, there’s no need to vaccinate the whole population. I suspect the answer there is likely to involve money again.

As for using it as a bioweapon, that’s the most insane part of all. It does not exist in the wild. There would be no question that it came from a lab because it doesn’t exist anywhere else. The list of suspects would be really quite short too.

I saw that Bill Gates interview. He quite specifically said ‘smallpox’. Not any infectious disease, not one that is still out there in the wild, like say anthrax, plague, tuberculosis, polio, nothing like that. He said, specifically, smallpox. Which would be likely to be the hardest one for any bioterrorist to get hold of.

This hypothetical bioterrorist is not going to isolate smallpox from a contaminated sample or a patient. He’s going to have to break in to a high security lab and then into a -70C freezer – which are always locked – and he will have to know exactly what he is looking for and get it out of that freezer without losing fingers to frostbite or infecting himself with the smallpox sample or anything else that will be in there. Basically, he would have to be working in that lab with enough training to know what he is doing. He’s not going to be hard to find.

It’s also the most idiotic choice for a bioweapon. Once you let this thing out you’re not going to find it easy to put it back. It has a nine day incubation period. Patient Zero is spreading it for over a week before they even start to get sick. So is everyone he interacts with. Back in the 1800s this might be containable but now, nine days is enough for someone to travel over most of the planet.

If you release this, it’s coming back to bite you. You cannot contain it.

So, if you have a new, experimental vaccine and you don’t know if the vaccine is safe or not, you have to take it. You have no choice. There are no effective treatments and unlike Covid, this time you have a 70% chance of dying from smallpox. Even if you survive it, it can leave you with permanent disfiguration.

If Bill Gates really is deranged enough to even consider this, someone needs to talk him out of it fast. It’s well known that he hasn’t had his children take any vaccines. This one though, he’ll have to. He’ll have to take it himself. Even if it’s a dodgy mRNA potion.

Smallpox is a lousy choice of bioweapon. It cannot be contained once released. Its origin can be traced very quickly since it has to come from a lab, and there aren’t many that have it. It would have to be handled by an expert otherwise the risk of contaminating themselves is huge. There would be little difficulty in finding out who was responsible, and once they are caught they are going to talk. A lot. They won’t want to take all the responsibility for something like this, whoever paid them is going to get named.

It would be an extraordinarily risky move, so I don’t think it’s going to happen.

What might happen is a fake smallpox scare. We’ve seen this recently with necrotising fasciitis, mad cow disease, Zika and Ebola. It takes less than ten cases for everyone to think they’re all doomed. A couple of Ebola cases in the UK (they were medics who had returned from treating African victims) and the whole country went into panic. Stirred, as always, by the media.

Necrotising fasciitis had stories of people visibly dissolving on trains. It never actually happened. Mad cow disease had about ten cases in a year, this was projected by a ‘scientist’ (with an impressively straight face) to become 100 cases over the next ten years. Yeah, that’s ten cases a year. There aren’t any at the moment, as far as I am aware.

All of these things are gone now. I’m sure there are still cases of necrotising fasciitis but they are very rare (I think at its height there were eight cases in a year) and not newsworthy.

You really don’t need to release a virulent bioweapon. You just need to make people think it’s going to happen and you can sell them vaccines. Even vaccines against a disease they have no chance of catching. A couple of photos of chicken pox or cowpox sufferers, magically saved by your smallpox ‘vaccine’ and there you go. They’ll line up to pay for your cure.

In the fiction that was ‘The Macbeth Trio‘ I used scrofula as the sales pitch to sell a vaccine nobody needs. I didn’t think smallpox would be a credible one to use.

Seems someone else thinks it is.

Flashing my equipment

Well, I’m on the Twitter naughty step again, this time for a week. For ‘covid misinformation’ in a post that didn’t mention Covid at all, but was about the lunacy of forcing children to have a vaccine they don’t need. Well *shrug* it’ll boost my productivity in other areas, with that time-eater silent for a week. Therefore this post won’t automatically appear on Legiron’s Twitter.

So I have a 30 minute video, sent to me via Email, that really blows apart the PCR testing regime, and more. Not just the insane cycles that are enough to find one single strand of viral RNA – less than one intact virus – but about those performing the test.

Well it was clear that, if they are to achieve thousands of tests per day, there simply aren’t enough experienced PCR technicians available to do it. Even if every other research area was closed down and every PCR technician (few technicians are actually PCR technicians) seconded to a tedious and repetetive test that they will know is being wrongly used.

So they aren’t using experienced technicians. They are using anyone they can find. I’ve met a few on Twitter, bragging about how they are now PCR experts. A few lines of conversation reveals they know absolutely sod all about what they are doing.

In the video, Dr. Mike Yeadon talks about ‘pipette training’. No such training has ever existed. When you start out in a lab, a technician or researcher will show you how to use a pipette. Once. You are expected to be able to follow simple instructions because anyone who can’t understand something as basic as a pipette is actually dangerous to have in a lab.

Okay. Time to flash my equipment. If you’ve worked in any kind of lab handling small amounts of liquid you will be very familiar with these. If you only used glass pipettes at school and haven’t seen these before, they might look technical. They really aren’t, but use them wrong and you’ll screw up the whole experiment.

These are still in the case I used to transport them from the lab. They are actually stacked far more neatly than this, I’ve spread them for the photo (fnarr). There are a couple of other brands in there, the ones Dr. Yeadon talks about are the Gilson brand, the ones with dark blue handles. The others are cheaper but not as robust. Gilson pipettes are the gold standard, they are well built and consistently accurate, and easy to calibrate and service.

The one marked A is a 1 ml pipette. You see the thumbwheel near the top of the handle? You can adjust it down to about 0.01 ml. It’s accurate all the way down. B and C are 200 microlitre and 100 microlitre – again, adjustable down to a few microlitres and still accurate.

You don’t use them as they are, they have a tip added. I have put a tip on the 1 ml Gilson to demonstrate (D). You never have to touch those tips, you pick them up from a rack they’ve been sterilised in by pressing the Gilson into one, and you eject the tip by pressing the white button on the back of the handle. I used sterile tips, once they were used they were contaminated (often with something nasty) so absolutely no touching.

To load them, you press the plunger (the round white button on the steel rod) but not too hard. Just until it stops. Dip the tip in your sample liquid and let it up slowly. That’s the critical part. If you just let go, liquid shoots up and can get into the main barrel of the pipette and that’s when you are screwed. A contaminated pipette will contaminate every subsequent use. It’s out of action until you deal with it. It’s not too hard but it does take time and involves disassembling the pipette, something you really don’t want to have to deal with part way through a lot of samples.

The sample you are pipetting must only contact the tip. No other part. To dispense, you press the plunger again, but this time a little bit past the point of resistance so you get the whole sample out. Then eject the tip into disinfectant.

Well that’s the microbiology way. If you are using these in a chemistry lab you probably don’t need to sterilise them first and disinfect them afterwards.

And that’s about it. After that lesson all you need is a bit of practice. Oh there’ll be nuances and adjustments depending on whether you’re pippetting chemicals or microbes or DNA, but that’s the basics.

The thing about PCR and DNA is that it is extraordinarily easy to contaminate a sample. Easier even than when pipetting bacteria. You really want a well trained and experienced technician doing this stuff, not some shelf stacker from Asda looking for a bit of a boost to their bank account.

One of the things I learned during my stint working in a food shop is that most of the staff aren’t really planning to stay. There are career people in there, at least one of the managers had started out working tills and worked his way up to running the entire shop, and there were current floor staff clearly heading on that route. However, most of the staff were schoolkids and students earning a bit of cash while studying. The thing about them was – they did not care about the job. They were doing it purely for the money. They had no intention of, nor interest in, moving up through the ranks of the business. They just followed instructions closely enough that they’d get paid.

So it is with almost all of those currently running PCR tests for Covid. They might think they have been suddenly elevated to the rank of ‘PCR expert’ but they are, to be blunt and perhaps a little cruel, trained monkeys. They don’t have any background in any area of science and have absolutely no idea what they are doing. They just follow a written-down set of instructions. They have no way to determine whether those instructions are correct.

As Dr. Yeadon explained, even the ‘pipette trainer’ had no idea what they were doing. In the case he describes, they actually were previously employed as a supermarket shelf stacker.

An aside. I recall when one of our very fine balances went out of kilter. So I sat down to recalibrate it. The idiot girl child they had employed as admin started out saying ‘Shouldn’t you leave that to…’

I finished her sentence. ‘Someone who knows what they are doing?’. I had completed recalibration before I had finished speaking.

She never spoke to me again. I think I can call that a win.

This was about 20 years ago. It’s only become worse since then.

Next Jab

In ‘Leaving the Dream‘, I didn’t specify how the chip in Phil’s hand worked. Well, in a short story you have to avoid getting sidetracked into details that really aren’t needed to advance the story. Getting sidetracked is definitely one of my flaws so I do need to keep it under control.

I hadn’t envisaged his chip having terabytes of storage and its own power supply, although we might not be far off that as a possibility. You can now get micro SD cards with enough storage space to run a small country and some extremely tiny batteries. However, I hadn’t gone that way, I was saving it for more futuristic chips like the ones in 10538’s body.

Phil’s chip didn’t need it. It wasn’t scanned by hand held scanners, only on a desktop scanner attached to a computer, which was itself attached to the internet. So, Phil’s chip was simply a unique identifier, using RFID, no internal power. The scanners identified him and the computer accessed a central database to bring up his records. Very simple, cheap and already achievable with technology that’s already been around for quite some time.

The chip didn’t need updates or modifications of any kind. New medications were added to the central database and the chip simply identified him to that database. Seriously, that could be rolled out tomorrow. Every component of it already exists.

So, updating Phil’s vaccine passport does not require him to go anywhere or do anything to the chip, and there really isn’t much anyone can do about hacking it. It’s just an ID, the real data is stored elsewhere.

Now, it is already clear that the Pharmers intend to profit from regular ‘booster’ jabs, whether you need them or not, and that more vaccines will be added to that passport – all requiring regular top-ups. Flu, I am sure, will be next, there will probably be a few others before plague is added – but it will be.

Next, there is likely to be an mRNA vaccine for HIV.

Now, I am at pretty much zero risk of HIV. I’m over 60, I have never been one to ‘play the field’ and indeed, I have very little interaction with other people anyway. Heck, I’m at very low risk of catching a cold, I’m not at all concerned about HIV! I’m far more bothered by IBS which runs (literally) in the family. Not much anyone can do about that, and probably never will be.

I expect most of you out there can say much the same – your risk of HIV is negligible. So the vaccine will only be for high risk groups, right? Like Yellow Fever vaccine, which you only need if you go to a country where Yellow Fever is endemic. If you’re not visiting those parts of the world, you have no need of the vaccine.

Well, if you’re in the UK you don’t need plague vaccine but you’re going to get it anyway. Also yellow fever, even if you have never left your remote Pennines village and don’t intend to. You’ll have this HIV vaccine too.

Why? Two reasons.

  1. Each one will be added to your vaccine passport. Fail to stay up to date and you can’t even leave your house.
  2. So many have now fallen for the scam that ‘my vaccine doesn’t work unless you’re vaccinated too’ that it will henceforth apply to all future vaccines. It might even spread from there. ‘My painkillers don’t work unless everyone takes them’. There will be peer pressure that could well end up as a sort of Invasion of the Bodysnatchers scenario, where those fully up to date with every potion going will point and scream at you in the street if you miss one shot of the athlete’s foot vaccine.

Once you get on this ride you can never get off. It’s the last ride you’ll ever take and you’ll be on it to the end.

I won’t be getting on the ride. I’ve had all the vaccines I need, I’m not joining in with the experimental stuff. If that means no more visits to pubs, restaurants or shops, so be it. I’ll get everything delivered or simply go completely off grid and fend for myself. I’ve done that before. I’m a lot older now but I think I can survive for at least a while without all the modern luxuries I didn’t grow up with but, like many, have become used to.

I’m not saying ‘don’t get the vaccine’, that’s your choice. I will not stoop to the level of the Cult of Covid and demand anyone follows the way I choose to live. Few, if any, of those under 40 could cope with it anyway. However, even if you have had the vaccine, I would suggest you resist the introduction of the vaccine passport. It does not represent freedom in any way. It represents eternal slavery. You will do as you are told or you will be cancelled. The requirements put upon you will only increase, never decrease. You get in this game and the door slams behind you. There is no exit.

Well, if it comes to it, I choose cancellation. I really don’t want to live as one of the Pharmer cattle, I’d rather freeze to death in a remote forest. Although, since I know how to make a fire and cook over it, I’ll actually probably outlast most of the Eloi the Pharmers will be feeding on.

I know, this is a bleak vision of the future but if the vaccine passport becomes reality, it’s the only one available. You can pooh-pooh this, you can pretend it’s all going to be fine, you can believe your government sees you as anything more than an inconvenience, you can believe the Pharmers care about more than pure profit… but there is a very nasty awakening coming for you.

Soon it will be too late to choose your future. It will have been decided for you. Unless you decide first.

The choice is yours. It always was, if you only could see it.

Contagion!

There is now, in development, a DNA vaccine for plague.

Yep. Plague. You know, that thing that hammered the crap out of the human race up to the 1600s and is still around – although these days it comes up occasionally and really doesn’t get too far. It’s a bacterial infection and we now have antibiotics that can stop it.

There were two cases recently in China. Some folk ate an animal known to be a high risk of being a plague carrier. Even the Chinese avoid that one but I guess even the Chinese have a few idiots.

It shows up in warm places to this day, even in southern US states a few cases arise. Madagascar, off the coast of Africa, seems particularly prone to it.

Sure, some of the more remote places where it shows up can be hard to supply with antibiotics, and a vaccine might be a good thing there, but an experimental, monkey-virus vector carrying DNA to make your own cells look like plague bacteria? That doesn’t sound like such a good idea, especially since your covid vaccine already makes a lot of your cells look like they are infected with a virus. Your immune system is going to be busy, killing all your own body’s cells because it thinks you are infected.

Plague can be treated with antibiotics. A plague vaccine could be based on killed bacteria. It has never been developed because, frankly, there’s no money in it. Plague’s current range and frequency simply don’t justify that sort of investment, especially when there are already treatments for it.

Yet now, we see a company investing a hell of a lot in the development of a vaccine we don’t actually need, and which won’t make any money because it’s most useful in places that don’t have much money. Why is that?

And why does it need to make your own cells express plague bacteria proteins? The traditional route, killed bacteria, is likely to be much more successful, cheaper to produce and far easier to transport to remote areas. Unlike viruses, it is very easy to make sure a bacterial vaccine contains no live ones. Why go the expensive, complicated, experimental route?

Especially when the investment is unlikely to ever pay for itself.

Or is it? Oh, you don’t need to unleash plague on the world again. You just need to make enough people scared of it. As my fictional world did with scrofula, back in 2017.

Expect to hear more plague cases popping up. Expect to hear about ‘variants’ and ‘antibiotic resistant’ strains. Expect to hear about it hitting big cities.

Expect to have plague vaccine added to your vaccine passport, right behind covid and flu. Expect to see many more vaccinations added, plus regular boosters. Expect to never hear of anyone who has caught plague, but to hear of many who have suffered after vaccination.

There is only one way to profit from a vaccine hardly anyone has any need of.

Make them scared. It’s worked well so far.

‘Antivax’ is the new ‘Racist’

So, anyone who doesn’t want to take part in the experiment is now an ‘anti-vaxxer’. This would be amusing if it wasn’t so serious.

I’ve had every vaccine going (except flu, never needed it and it’s only about 40% effective so never thought it worth while). My children and grandchildren are vaccinated too. They haven’t had the same amount as me because they didn’t spend their entire career working with dangerously contaminated samples.

Yes, my kids had MMR vaccine. I went through both measles and mumps as a child and I can still remember them, even now. I don’t remember if I had rubella but I can still remember the smell of the calamine lotion I was painted with when I had chicken pox. I was fortunate enough to not get polio (I had the vaccine) but even in the 1960s, there were two kids at my school who had had it. One had the steel rods strapped to one leg, the other had both legs in a cast, separated by a pole to try to get them to grow evenly. At university, one of our lecturers had the massive-soled boot on one leg due to the damage caused by polio in his youth.

So yes, I got my children vaccinated against those things. Of course I did. I had either experienced the effects of the disease myself or knew someone who had. And if there is a vaccine available to stop them going through it too, of course I’d get it for them.

I don’t know if I had smallpox vaccine or not. It wasn’t compulsory in 1960, the ‘mandatory’ part had been challenged and discarded almost a hundred years earlier but I might have been caught in the tail end before it was finally eradicated. That’s okay. Smallpox had a high kill rate so I don’t mind if I was vaccinated, I was far too young to give a damn anyway.

I had to get a few extra vaccines to visit China in 1991. Maybe they aren’t required for a holiday but I was there for work – visiting farms, mainly pig farms – so the vaccines were a good idea. Nobody in China ever asked to see proof I’d had the rabies or any other vaccine. I suspect the Chinese attitude was ‘well, we warned you, if you didn’t listen, tough luck if you get it’. Which is an attitude I can agree with.

Flu vaccine has such a poor effectiveness that I’ve never bothered with it. I had my first official invitation this year and ignored it. I had flu once, thirty years ago, and yes it’s unpleasant but if the vaccine is only going to offer 40% protection… not good enough.

I am not touching this experimental mRNA or DNA stuff. I know well what happened in all previous attempts to make a coronavirus vaccine. Traditional or mRNA. I know what happened in the Phillipines when they injected masses of people with a vaccine for Dengue fever. Coronaviruses are a special case. Every vaccine ever attempted has only made subsequent infection far, far worse. From what I have learned so far, this one is going to be no different. If you’ve had the vaccine you need to be very, very careful not to catch this disease next winter.

Now I’m not judging anyone who has been vaccinated. The fear machine is still in overdrive and if you haven’t spent your entire career working on, and with, nasty infectious diseases there is no reason you’d know any of the things I know. You are all experts in your own careers, things I know nothing about and you haven’t had the time to study all the things I spent my life being paid to study. The push has been relentless and it’s still going on. There are now claims that it might take five vaccinations before it works – it won’t stop there.

That’s because it’s not about a virus and not even about a vaccine, even though many people are making enormous amounts of money out of it. It’s now about getting that vax passport in place, the first step to a Chinese style social credit system. The vaccinations will never end, your passport will expire if you miss one and it won’t be just the one vaccine. They are now working on mRNA vaccines for other diseases, you’ll have to buy those too. Oh it’s like the drug pushers, the first doses are free until you’re caught in the web.

They even claim to have a vaccine for cancer. This is ridiculous. There are many, many different causes of cancer, some of them still unknown, and one vaccine cannot possibly make you immune to them all. But then, that’s the idea – you’ll need to cover ‘variants’. I believe there is a vaccine against a virus-induced cervical cancer but not being in possession of a cervix myself, I can’t really comment. Still, a vaccine against asbestos-induced cancer, for example, seems pretty damn far fetched. You can’t develop immunity to a mineral.

It’s not funny though. I have seen people who want to pin down all the unvaxxed and forcibly inject them. Others who want to line up ‘anti-vaxxers’ in front of a trench and shoot them, Stalin-style. Piers Morgan, the TV loon, wants to deny all medical treatment to those who won’t take part in this experiment. The crazed are being whipped up again and if you think that sort of thing is all in the past, look up the dates around Pol Pot or even the Chinese communist regime. These are not long-past events. Can it happen again?

It is happening again.

Can it be stopped?

Well I’m not sure. I have a feeling we might have to take the Underdog route of losing to win, because we will not get most people to realise or understand what is happening until it happens. Meanwhile they will blame the unvaxxed when the vaccines in them start killing them through antibody dependent enhancement and cytokine storms. For many it will take a long time before they realise the non-sick unvaxxed are not the source of their sickness. There might not be many of them left by then.

Next winter is going to be hard. We are going to, once again, be regaled by front page news filled with photos of overstretched hospitals which we’ve seen every winter for well over a decade. Except last year, when we were regaled with dance videos in empty wards… during a ‘pandemic’.

It will all be blamed on a ‘variant’ caused by the ‘unvaxxed’ when it will be the vaccines causing it all. I’ll have to stay out of sight for a year or two until, maybe, I end up as the Omega Man. I hope I won’t be the only one.

So let them call me ‘anti-vaxxer’. It makes a change from ‘racist’.

Although it is equally meaningless.
