Just as President Biden’s unconstitutional vaccination mandates were being ripped up by the courts, authoritarian politicians, public health bureaucrats, and the mainstream media, announced a new Covid variant to justify another round of lockdowns and restrictions. The things that didn’t work last time would be a good idea to do again this time, they claim.

For these authoritarians, the timing of omicron’s emergence was perfect.

The variant was first discovered in South Africa, with the US and European media running endless scare stories. Authoritarian politicians used the manufactured fear to justify another attack on liberty. Europe shut down and became a virtual prison camp. In Austria, Germany, and elsewhere, citizens became non-persons without a vaccine passport.

South African health officials reported that the variant seemed to be more contagious but far milder than previous variants, as usually happens with such viruses. But the lockdowners would not hear of it. From Boris Johnson in the UK to DeBlasio in New York City, the variant was perfect cover for them to put their boots back on the necks of terrorized citizens.

As to be expected, Fauci reveled in the emergence of the new variant, warning of “record deaths” for the unvaccinated. Similarly, President Biden warned that this would be a “winter of death” for the unvaccinated.

But here’s something the media isn’t reporting about the omicron outbreaks: they are taking place among the fully vaccinated. Cornell University, with 97 percent of the campus fully vaccinated and a mask mandate, has announced that it would return to online only instruction after a massive Covid outbreak. Likewise, the National Football League has postponed several games this weekend due to Covid outbreaks, even though the League is virtually 100 percent vaccinated. And the National Basketball Association, which is above 95 percent fully vaccinated, has just announced that due to a surge in Covid cases it too will postpone games.

The vaccine is not working to prevent infection or transmission of the virus: cases are raging in states with the highest vaccine levels. Yet the “experts” continue to maintain that the only thing that can stop the spread of omicron is vaccines! More people are catching on that this makes no sense. If vaccines don’t stop the spread, how can vaccines stop the spread?

Meanwhile, South Africa, with one of the lowest rates of vaccination, has just announced that they are only seeing a tiny fraction of hospitalizations with omicron compared to previous variants. South Africa’s Covid response authority has written to the health minister recommending an end to containment efforts, contact tracing, and quarantines.

Unvaccinated South Africa is ending Covid restrictions while the hyper-vaccinated North is locking down. Something doesn’t add up.

Fauci loves to say that to question him is to question science, but this has nothing to do with science. It’s about power. Fauci, the political authoritarians, and the corrupt Big Pharma billionaires are trying to make a last stand, desperate to push omicron as a justification for further tyranny and profits. But actual science is not cooperating.

Omicron is spreading and vaccines are not stopping it. Thus far nearly half of omicron infections are asymptomatic. Some experts are predicting that omicron will spell the end of Covid-19. But we know that as long as people like Fauci are around, Covid-19 will never end. Unless, of course, we repudiate the charlatans and profiteers and reclaim our liberty!

  3. – In evolutionary biology a “sickness” is always a transitory stage in the
    development of a parasitism so yes, the evolutionary trend towards
    more contagious but less virulent strains is universal (with rare outliers).
    The NHS have already backpedalled on their single Omicron fatality
    (“with”, not “from”, but still no word on comorbidities).
    Sooner or later it will be preferrable to let a “wave” run its course
    (not least because the immunity is several times stronger and broader i.e.
    also more probably covers future mutants).

    For a developing country with low vaccination rates that point comes sooner:
    Doing nothing comes naturally, don´t cost forex, and works better;
    besides, we all die 😉 .

    For the “West” it boils down to marginal cost per quality adjusted life year (theory)
    or how much Big Pharma can grease without being caught (practice).

    Given Pfizer still refuse to fork over their raw data we may never know.

    I do not share the enthusiasm Dr. Paul must have for a national reclamation of liberty. What we have observed in 2020 with the Covid scare and subsequent restrictions and with the mayhem that followed the death of George Floyd is that Americans, for the most part, are hopelessly docile. How many people put a greater premium on liberty than having food, shelter, safety, and an adequate salary? No, Americans will happily trade their already compromised freedoms if it means passing through life with as little discomfort. I do hate sounding so jaded about the nature of man, but this appears to be his modus operandi.

    As the post advises, when you enter Delta Omicron House, old-fashioned prophylactics are recommended, but leave the face diapers and gloves at home, if you want to have any chance of getting laid. As the song says, “The Greeks don’t want no freaks.”

    But recall they dropped their racial reckoning when citizens were in lockdown and basically unable to communicate about anything. That’s why I feel the revolution is slowly failing and being beat back into the cracks from which it came.

    A term called ‘shock doctrine’ that is used to transform other nations has been employed against its own citizens. -Iraq was a good example the doctrine being employed.

  10. gay troll says:

    What in the actual fuck is going on? The media is building a new lockdown narrative on the back of Omicron, despite the fact that it appears to be unstoppable, irrespective of masking, social distancing, and vaccination. It also appears to be incredibly mild, perhaps ten times less deadly than Delta, which in turn was ten times less deadly than Beta. It is literally on par with the common cold; as Omicron becomes endemic it will join the other human coronaviruses that circulate freely among the human population.

    If the goal is perpetual recurring lockdowns and economic strangulation, Omicron is not the right means to the end. This suggests that all the talk of nefarious intent on the part of TPTB is wrong. After all, if they can simply manufacture a narrative, or engineer a virus, then why not make Omicron truly deadly? Instead we are observing the result that viral evolution would predict the first place, which is the selection of more transmissible, less dangerous strains.

    So it looks like a completely natural pandemic with a manufactured narrative on top of it. There are a few other curious things about Omicron. It is not mutated from Delta but from a much earlier strain of the virus. It has also been reported that most of the mutations in Omicron exist on the spike protein. I have already pointed out that the accumulation of mutations on the spike protein is exactly the kind of process that should result from inoculating people with a leaky vaccine that only teaches the immune system to recognize the spike. I have suggested that mutating the spike protein may have been the goal of the vaccination campaign all along. And yet the variant supposedly came out of South Africa which has a very low jab rate.

    In the U.S. a lot of vaccinated people are going to test positive for Omicron. Any of these people can thereafter have COVID listed on their death certificate. According to the MSM, the United States is already in crisis due to soaring rates of Delta, and flu, and delayed care. But with Omicron, whatever is going on will officially cease to be a pandemic of the unvaccinated. So that could be the real goal here: use Omicron as an excuse for vaccine failure and/or injury.

    But as a long term justification for lockdowns and other mandates, Omicron is worthless. My tendency has been to look at the pandemic response as a cover up all along, which suggests that it could really come to a stage managed ending. As far as I know, there was only one top level BSL facility that suffered containment breaches involving a [redacted] “select agent” (i.e. pathogen) in 2019. And it wasn’t in China.

    One other possibility I consider is that Omicron was released by white hats and black hats are about to get their asses handed to them. But I’m pretty sure they all wear the same hats now.

    “But here’s something the media isn’t reporting about the omicron outbreaks: they are taking place among the fully vaccinated. ”

    The reason for this is that the current CoVax shots are built to create spike proteins to train the body’s immune system with that have a very specific spike protein config. The immune system [mostly] only works against this spike protein config.

    When you throw a different config at it, as with Omicron, the old CoVax shots do nothing.

    This is the grand weakness in the mRNA and similar spike protein focused approaches.

    OTOH, when someone gets naturally infected, the immune system has learned over millions of years to take a sample of ALL PARTS of the virus, not just the spike protein surface covering. This provides robust immunity to the original virus (assuming you survived the infection) AND generally, future variants.

    Phama scientists know this but we don’t have the technology to do what the human body does naturally, so they have cobbled together a half-assed solution that barely works.

    Finally, on top of depending on a poorly thought out solution (or maybe not poorly thought out if the goal was to keep shooting people up and raking in the $$ from doing this), all of you who took the CoVax shots stand a strong chance of experiencing serious side-effects over future years due to the damage caused by free floating spike proteins in your body. So make sure your life insurance policies are up-to-date and paid if you have people depending on you for income.

    Very funny stuff. The N-95 bit has been one of the more absurd rituals in Covidian dogma. Even though there is no scientific evidence that wearing masks could prevent transmission of infectious respiratory viruses, and plenty of evidence that this ritual will not do so, people simply ate it up when the various health authorities switched from discouraging to encouraging masks.
    But in order to cover their asses, they said that mask wearing was only good as source control.
    N-95 has significant filtration properties for the wearer, for organic vapours and various particles, but has a one-way valve that does not filter exhalation in any way. So masks cannot protect the wearer, and N-95 cannot work as source control.
    Absolutely hilarious.

    I also remain unconvinced that, contra Dr. Paul, the “conservative” SC will agree that Biden’s vax mandates are unconstitutional. After all, the 6th Circuit Court (by a 2-1 vote) overruled the 5th Circuit, which had ruled against the vax mandates. As a result, Biden feels empowered to proceed with his demonic mandates, with Jan. 10 as the new drop-dead date.

    From what I read this AM, the SC is supposed to make some kind of ruling, even if it’s a Stay, before Biden’s enforcement date. The SC has 3 democrat libs who vote as a bloc, and 3 reliable conservatives (Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch). That leaves Roberts, who often votes with the libs, and 2 shaky Trump appointees (Kavanaugh and Coney-Barrett). I could see the Court going 6-3 against the mandates, and also 6-3 for.

    This is where the dreaded “Omicron variant” comes in. It’s timing seems perfect to scare the Court, (which was too afraid to take up any of the 2020 election challenges), into voting against Liberty. This is hardly the “Lockdowners Last Stand.” If we’ve learned anything from last year’s stolen election(s), with Covid perfectly timed to bring about Trump’s defeat thru fraudulent nationwide mail-in voting, these leftist ideologues will never give up.

    The COVID-19 Omicron Christmas Lockdown – Prof. Michel Chossudovsky

  38. MrFish says:

    “Thus far nearly half of omicron infections are asymptomatic.”

    The RT-PCR test is the determinant of the presence of a COVID or Omicron “infection.” The PCR test is the basis of the “pandemic.” The same PCR test used for producing COVID-19 “infections” is used for producing Omicron cases. The test is notorious for producing “false positives,” so a testee without symptoms who tests positive is called an “asymptomatic” case of Omicron because all PCR positive results are mandated to be evidence of Omicron (until Omicron showed up, a positive PCR test result was mandated to be attributed to COVID-19). A PCR test can produce a positive result if it detects a particle of any live or dead virus, including the common cold, whooping cough or influenza. The test’s sensitivity is adjustable. When adjusted to high sensitivity, a PCR test can produce positive results without any viral fragments present in the testee. A PCR positive result justifies hospital treatment, and insurance payment, for the “infection” even if there are no symptoms.

  39. Politicians dont want Covid to end; it would be the end of their dictatorial powers. Pandemics have a shelf life of two years on average so by Spring 2022 we will have to return to normal no matter what new ”variants” politicians desperate to hang on to Covid come up with. Vaccines dont work; Covid in 99 percent survivable; wont be able to fool the people much longer.

    Yes, I’ve looked at the white hat possibility also. You could call Omicron a gift from the heavens, to end the pandemic in the ways you illustrate – and people such as Dr. Robert Malone do talk about it in this kind of way.

    What if it wasn’t even white hat? What if black hats turned the pandemic on, and are now turning it off?

    What if Fabio Vighi is correct in his essay (along with other commentators on this theme), and the pandemic was turned on precisely to lock the global economy down, to prevent a hyper inflation of the US Dollar following the Fed’s massive injection of liquidity into the banks through its Repo market, and to cover the continued covert bailout? Suppose the bailout is done, for now, and they can afford to let the global economy absorb the inflation tax more gradually?

    Suppose they ran a real test of the Johns Hopkins theoretical paper, and the Event 201 practice run immediately preceding? And now they’re assessing the results (which have to look fantastic to them, one would imagine).

    Suppose all that, and it does fit.

    And a long standing technique of Pharma was brought to the aid of policy, and has been handsomely rewarded for it. And it all worked so well that Pharma and the political power freaks can now think in terms of lifetime subscriptions. The Microsoft model writ large – all corporate ambition, for that matter.

    … in addition to sacrificing liberty, we are also sacrificing future economic stability…

    You’re absolutely correct, and it’s encouraging to see recognition that the future is what the Corona Chan “pandemic” is really all about.

    As Klaus Schwab gleefully yet condescendingly declared (with barely disguised contempt for the “useless eaters”) – “you will all own nothing, and you will be happy”.

    For the people who still value the principles of family, community & liberty, though, this is about more than just economic stability and prosperity. The current diabolic scheme of corralling everyone on the planet into absolute Globalist surveillance and control using a perpetual fake “pandemic” to mandate universal injection with engineered bioweapons every three months forever, means that entire families and communities, even nations, will be permanently extinguished from the face of the planet, and the life of the minority remaining will be inescapably dystopian – forever.

    This process is already underway, hidden in plain view by the controlled media for the gullible masses to not see.

    This is about more than economics. This is about a planned holocaust, a systemic global genocide.

  43. At the LGM site I found a link describing the new Republican efforts to curb the enforcement of public health.

    The Ohio law, Senate Bill 22, slows health department’s ability to shut down a restaurant to protect customers from a foodborne disease outbreak, several health commissioners there said. Officials now can issue an order only after a person who ate there gets a documented diagnosis of such an illness — not simply after health inspectors discover unsanitary conditions.

    So if you get sick at a restaurant because one of the employees didn’t bother washing his hand after going to the crapper, you’ll have to produce Documentation that you’re really sick. And good luck proving you got the germ at that particular restaurant.

    The possibilities for Great Libertarians like Ron Paul are endless. Don’t bother with “inspections” of airplanes until they actually crash.

    Well Sir, I hope you’re right. But his record on health/safety/decency issues isn’t all that great.

    Speaking recently to the Republican Leadership Conference, Rep. Ron Paul raised an overlooked issue in American politics. The federal government, he warned, is imposing a regime of oppressive pasteurization. To cheers, Paul said, “I think we ought to vote for the right to drink raw milk!”

    Never mind that the heating of milk to 161 degrees, common in America since the 1920s, kills brucellosis, tuberculosis and a variety of harmful bacteria. Americans, it seems, are being simultaneously deprived of healthy enzymes and of liberty.

    Never forget that “harmful bacteria” have rights too!

    From the same link:

    Apart from Ron Paul, Republican candidates do not recommend a retreat from the federal role in providing health care to the elderly.
    Which brings us back to Ron Paul, who may well oppose federal efforts to prevent the sale of rotting meat. After all, he accuses Abraham Lincoln of starting the Civil War in order to strengthen the “centralized state” and to “get rid of the original tenet of the Republic.”

    The Union troops had already left Ft. Moultrie on Sullivans Island (to the NE), and the reason the South Carolina Militia (it was NOT “the Southern States”) finally bombarded Ft. Sumter is that President Lincoln notified SC Governor Pickens in the spring that he was going to resupply the fort. There was nobody arguing that this fort, 1/2 way down the SC coast, was anything but the (independent at the time) State of South Carolina.

    “The variant was first discovered in South Africa, with the US and European media running endless scare stories.”
    Once again it is the Government and the Media who claim this. Should they be trusted or taken at face value? No way!

    “As to be expected, Fauci reveled in the emergence of the new variant, warning of “record deaths” for the unvaccinated.”
    Was this puppy torturing imbecile right the last time he warned of massive deaths? Again no he wasn’t, matter of fact there is no proof beyond the media and government claiming there have been any covid deaths. Why is a Chicago gangbanger getting shot 30 times and dying of covid a meme? It is because the meme is true that’s why. Was the dog murderer right about GRIDS who directed sex educators in schools to teach their students that they would get AIDS if they had sex with thier girlfriend when the only one with AIDS were degenerate homos and needle drug addicts.

    Finally, we have this:
    “Likewise, the National Football League has postponed several games this weekend due to Covid outbreaks, even though the League is virtually 100 percent vaccinated. And the National Basketball Association, which is above 95 percent fully vaccinated, has just announced that due to a surge in Covid cases it too will postpone games.”

    So where is the actual proof that any american sportsball players are “actually” vaccinated. Seems like White soccer players and athletes of White sports are the only ones collapsing of heart attacks (which have always been happening Tm) yet no heart issues with any black sportsball afflete. The only evidence that famous people are actually vaccinated is taking their word for it, and their word is worthless and if they talk it should be assumed they are lying. If you believe all the congress scum and dumbass Joe Brandon are actually vaccinated and didn’t receive saline injections then you are gullible beyond hope.

    Any covid article to be serious must take into account that we are constantly being lied to by the government and media and how “the science” is horribly corrupt. Without this we are just taking the medias word for it and we should never do that.

    Just like all those hospitals were “overwhelmed” but hospital staff (mostly fat women) had tons of time to make tic tok videos. Just like when people took video of these empty “overwhelmed” hospitals they were arrested and the videos were banned on social media.
