STRAP YOURSELF IN 😨 For Climate Lockdowns​


Gesus, we never know that climate lock downs could be coming around our towns anytime soon. Besides this Covid being one of Bill Gates to hell fake plandemics he could also start to create climate change lock downs as he does believe that we must fight climate change also. If these Marxists globalist billionaires can get the many millions of buffoons out there believing this Convid hoax and lie is all for real than I am pretty sure that they could get the same buffoons believing in climate lock downs. These globalist creators of hell and misery will no doubt be trying this very soon. Is there any hope for humanity anymore? Good question. :rolleyes:

Britain gives Astra-Zeneca vaccines to Australia after Italy bans exports of the vaccines to that country.

This is the same EU that recently said the Astra-Zeneca vaccines don't work.

Down with the EU! Up with the Commonwealth!

Last year on this day, I was planning a week’s worth of Lifestyle stories that, in retrospect, were rather incongruous given the extraordinary year that was coming up. Light and cheery, the stories were all about spring break, healthy eating and what to make for St. Patrick’s Day.


What a difference a year makes. From one day to the next the life we knew disappeared and, in its place, a bewildering, distressing new normal of food hoarding, long lineups and confusing direction from all levels of government. Covid-19 had been in the news for weeks but no one anticipated how devastating its ominous presence would become when everything was suddenly shut down. Last year at this time, many of us were scrambling for whatever we could grab from work to set up impromptu home offices. In one year, many lost their jobs, small business were shuttered, thousands of restaurants closed, weddings were cancelled, lifestyle industries decimated.

Who knew something as ordinary as meeting someone for coffee would become such a painful longing.

One has to ask – if we knew then what we know now, what would we have done anything differently? I suspect probably nothing. It’s not like we could run away to a different country. The whole world was going down the same rabbit hole.

Initially we were told these drastic measures were for two weeks only. But, since the pandemic hit, the goal posts have been continuously moving forward, much like Lucy moving the proverbial football away from Charlie Brown.

So – what’s happened in a year’s time? Necessity became the mother of invention when setting up home offices. Online shopping became the norm, and Zoom meetings the way of the future. When we did shop in person, we learned the art of patience as we lined up to get into stores. In the cold. One friend told me the lineups reminded her of the old Soviet Union.

In a year’s time, our new normal included living with the everyday fear of having this frightening virus attach itself to us when we least suspected it. Reaching for a door handle, or standing too close to someone. At the beginning, masks were actually an afterthought – we were all encouraged to wear disposable gloves instead. A few months after the pandemic hit the reverse happened and now, donning a mask is as common as putting on underwear.

In a year’s time we learned the roles doctors, nurses and frontline workers did for the safety and well-being of everyone. And they became our new heroes, as we banged pots and pans in the evenings to pay tribute. But – many didn’t want the accolades. They just wanted us to stay home and stop spreading the virus.

In a year’s time we grappled with a myriad of physical and emotional issues: Loneliness, depression, anger, fear. Guilt. Sadly, there’s a real tsunami of mental health issues coming our way, as there’s been an uptick in everything from family violence to drug abuse to kids being affected by not having a chance to be kids.

In a year’s time, we’ve become adept at throwing around pandemic buzzwords – frontline workers; hand-washing; mask wearing; safe distancing; stay home. So has our medical knowledge as learning the names of all the vaccines: AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech all expertly rolling off our tongues like the scientists who invented them.

In a year’s time we’ve learned how quickly misinformation can cause crisis, or who knew toilet paper would become more dear than paper money? There was price gauging, and hoarding, causing a domino effect of supply and demand – the irony being there never were shortages. Meanwhile, shameless individuals took advantage by clearing the shelves and hoarding the goods in the hopes of selling them for triple the price. We suspect there are garages still full of hand sanitizers that will never get sold.

In a year’s time, staying home resulted in a new pastime: Baking. Bread, cakes (banana bread was the fave) again, starting a run on such staples as flour and yeast. Many baked out of a sense of loneliness, and grief for an uncertain future.

In a year’s time, thanks to all that baking and cooking, many are now grappling with Covid-19 weight gain. And with many gyms and pools still closed, there’s no real outlet to burn those calories, unless you count walking as the fitness craze of the year.

In a year’s time, we had no idea all our favourite entertainments would be cancelled – even the beloved Santa Claus parade was not immune.

And so, here we are, a year later, heading into the second year with this unwanted guest. In a year’s time we’ve known people who have had the virus, or have died from the virus. We saw first-hand the tragedy of mismanaged LTC homes.

In a year’s time we’ve started questioning the experts, and many are chafing at the restraints, anxious to get back to the way things were, to see loved ones they haven’t seen since last year. Newborns reaching their first birthdays have yet to meet their grandparents. Many miss the physical contact. They just want to hug someone they love and miss.

Maybe this year we’ll have a clearer picture of when this will all happen. In a year’s time, we’ve known the depth of despair, but there have been moments of joy, of lasting friendships in safe bubbles, and anticipation of a better year, a brighter, healthier future.

Maybe see the Santa Claus parade again.

Russian intelligence agencies have mounted a campaign to undermine confidence in Pfizer Inc.’s and other Western vaccines, using online publications that in recent months have questioned the vaccines’ development and safety


I question all vaccines. Anyone taking a vaccine that refuses to at least try to find out as to what is in a vaccine is a fool. All these vaccine pushing drug companies like Phizer and Astra-Zeneca and others are all exempt from being sued due to their vaccines that may cause serious damage to someone's health and well being or even death which from some reports have said has happened already too many people who took the Covid vaccine.

And don't forget about Event 201 that took place in New York in Oct. 2019 where Bill Gates had a meeting formed to discuss the possibility of a big pandemic coming around in the future and that we should all get prepared and ready for it. Well, low and behold, six months later we end up with a Covid 19 pandemic.
Coincidence by chance? Hmmm? You be the judge. But by the looks of things this was a created plandemic in the making and brought to us by our dear globalist billionaires like Bill Gates. Hey, we never know, eh? ;)

ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE — Pope Francis said on Monday that he decided to visit Iraq despite a rise in COVID-19 cases after much prayer and contemplation and suggested God would protect those who came to see him from the virus.

Speaking to reporters on the plane returning from his trip, Francis also said he realized that some conservative Catholics would see his meeting with Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, as “one step from heresy” but that sometimes it was necessary to take a risk in inter-religious relations.


The 84-year-old Francis, speaking while standing for about 50 minutes, said the trip, his first foreign visit in 16 months, had left him much more fatigued than previous ones.

But he said he felt “reborn” after “feeling like I was imprisoned” by coronavirus restrictions. He added that “84 years do not come without baggage” and that he could not say if he would make fewer trips in the future.

While mask and social distancing regulations were respected at some indoor papal gatherings, where participation was limited, thousands of mostly young people attended a Mass at Erbil stadium on Sunday night and most were not abiding by the rules.


The pope has often urged people to respect guidelines of local authorities and the Vatican said before the trip they were confident that Iraqi officials would be able to make people follow the rules.

A reporter asked if he worried that people who came to see him could get sick and possibly even die.

“Trips cook slowly over time in my conscience. And this (the virus threat) is one of the things that most made me think ‘perhaps, perhaps’,” Francis said.

“I thought about it a lot, I prayed a lot over this. And in the end I took the decision freely. It came from within and I said ‘the one who allows me to decide this way will look after the people’,” he said, apparently referring to God.

“That is how I made the decision, after prayer and after awareness of the risks,” he said.

One of the most significant moments of the trip was the pope’s meeting on Saturday in the holy city of Najaf with the 90-year-old Sistani, one of the most influential figures in Shi’ite Islam, both within Iraq and beyond.

“Sometimes you just have to take a risk,” he said of the meeting.


“There are some critics who say that the pope is not courageous, but reckless, that he is doing things against Catholic doctrine that are one step away from heresy,” he said.

Throughout his papacy, conservatives have criticized his opening to the Muslim world, including the signing in 2019 of a joint document on inter-religious fraternity during a visit to Abu Dhabi. That visit was the first by a pope to the Arabian peninsula, home of Islam’s most sacred sites.

“These are risks but these decision are always taken in prayer,” he said, adding that he found Sistani to be “a great sage, a man of God,” and that the meeting “did my soul good.”

On Sunday morning in Mosul, Francis heard Muslim and Christian residents in the ruined city tell of their lives under Islamic State, which occupied it from 2014 to 2017.

He told reporters the visit to Mosul, where he sat surrounded by the wreckage of buildings, dangling concrete staircases, and cratered ancient churches, had left him shocked by the “unbelievable cruelty” that took place.

Francis said he badly wanted to make a visit to Lebanon as soon as possible to show solidarity with the people of all religions suffering there.

Now, Maggie Rawlins is making her mark in Sports Illustrated’s annual Swimsuit issue, slated to hit newsstands in July.

Before the pandemic kicked off, Rawlins had been scouted and was doing modelling work on the side. But when the crisis struck, she put glamour on the shelf and her heart on the line.

“I feel like everyone has a role and responsibility to play during the pandemic,” Rawlins told People.

“Since I have an active nursing licence, I felt like (going back to nursing) was the right thing to do. Additionally, it was in New York City … That city has been so good to me, and I wanted to give back.”

She also volunteered as a One World Health ambassador working to help bring affordable medical care to poor communities.

In her shoot for the iconic SI issue, Rawlins posed in a one-piece swimsuit in front of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla.

“Not only is she an incredibly beautiful model, she is also living proof that it’s never too late to give back to your community,” Sports Illustrated Swimsuit editor MJ Day said in a press release.


The editor added: “She returned to her career in nursing when COVID-19 hit, volunteering to work at several hospitals in Queens. As a former pediatric oncology nurse and a COVID frontline warrior, her dedication, commitment and passion towards helping others are the types of traits we love to celebrate and highlight.”

1.32%? That's how much masks have slowed the spread of Covid-1984. Are they serious? That's CDC for ya!

During March 1–December 31, 2020, state-issued mask mandates applied in 2,313 (73.6%) of the 3,142 U.S. coun-
ties. Mask mandates were associated with a 0.5 percentage point decrease (p = 0.02) in daily COVID-19 case growth
rates 1–20 days after implementation and decreases of 1.1, 1.5, 1.7, and 1.8 percentage points 21–40, 41–60, 61–80, and 81–100 days, respectively, after implementation (p<0.01 for all)
(Table 1) (Figure). Mask mandates were associated with a 0.7 percentage point decrease (p = 0.03) in daily COVID-19 death growth rates 1–20 days after implementation and decreases of
1.0, 1.4, 1.6, and 1.9 percentage points 21–40, 41–60, 61–80, and 81–100 days, respectively, after implementation (p<0.01for all). Daily case and death growth rates before implementa-
tion of mask mandates were not statistically different from the
reference period.


Holy fuck.

With all that PPE comes more non-recyclable or biodegradable litter.

So says an internal memo from the Public Health Agency, according to Blacklock’s Reporter.

Staff from the PHA complained about the “environmental impact” of used masks being discarded even though the agency itself landfilled two million N95 masks and 440,000 gloves when it closed a Regina warehouse prior to the pandemic in 2019.

“Increased personal protective equipment is creating more PPE waste which is not currently recyclable or biodegradable,” said the Jan. 14 memo.

PHA Staff said regulators should be “developing programs to reduce litter,” after estimating by July 1, all Canadians will have used 1.8 billion surgical masks, 490 million disposable gowns, 91 million face shields and four million goggles.

“While single-use personal protective equipment is the current standard for medical settings, options are becoming increasingly available for reusable masks for non-medical purposes and the public,” wrote staff.


“These options are more cost-effective and environmentally friendly than single use disposable masks, particularly as more jurisdictions make mask wearing mandatory.”

The memo said the PHA “continues to work with provinces and territories through the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment to explore how PPE waste can be diverted away from landfills.”

Man suffered painful, three-hour erection before dying of COVID-19: Docs

A hospitalized Ohio man being treated for COVID-19 experienced an unexpected side effect before dying of the disease last summer.

A three-hour erection.


According to the U.K.’s Mirror, citing a report in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine, doctors at Miami Valley Hospital discovered the 69-year-old man had an erection when they flipped him over after a 12-hour stint lying face down. They attempted to reduce the swelling with an ice pack but when that didn’t work, they drained blood from the man’s penis with a needle.

The report says the unnamed man, who was sedated and on a ventilator, was experiencing priapism — a long-lasting, painful erection that can cause permanent damage — triggered by a blood clot, one of the complications of COVID-19.

Treatment of the man’s priapism worked but he wound up dying shortly afterwards.


‘We haven’t seen any cases of COVID-related priapism like this and we have dealt with more COVID patients than any other European hospital as far as I’m aware, so this is clearly a rare but explainable manifestation of COVID,” Dr. Richard Viney, a consultant urological surgeon at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, told the Daily Mail.

“In this patient, he had low flow priapism which would certainly fit with microemboli (little clots forming in smaller blood vessels) and this is one of the complications of COVID we see in many other organ systems.”

It’s not the first time this condition has been seen in a patient experiencing severe COVID symptoms, according to multiple reports. A 62-year-old French man had the same condition while in Centre Hospitalier de Versailles in Le Chesnay but, after two weeks in intensive care, he recovered.

Holy fuck.
How the hell can people that are being forced to wear a face diaper mask all day long be good for their health and well being? On the contrary, in time they can only do harm to themselves by not allowing themselves to breathe in 100% wholesome life saving oxygen on every breath they take. Instead, they are now breathing back in some of their exhaled carbon dioxide and after they have worn their masks all day they must be breathing in plenty of bacteria that will build up on their mask during their long working hours. To be forcing people to wear a mask is a crime in itself. It is said that in time these mask wearers may end up with respiratory problems one day soon. Especially if they have to keep wearing masks for months on end.

All the forced wearing of masks really does is show that they are willing to show signs of submission to their control freak politicians and so called health officials and the billionaire globalists. The forced wearing of masks is just another Convid 1984 joke as is everything else about all of these silly ass Convid 1984 restrictions. The only virus that I will believe in is for real is the one that I can see flying around in front of my nose. In reality, I have never ever seen a real virus in my whole life time. How can anyone say that there are viruses when no one has ever really seen a virus with their own eyes? Just was always wondering about that. Has anyone here ever seen a virus floating around out there? Just joshing with you here but then again who knows, eh? ;)

Risk of death from COVID-19 is 3.5 times higher than the flu: Study

A study published Wednesday in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) found the risk of death from COVID-19 was 3.5 times higher than from influenza.

The numbers put a figure on the severity of the novel coronavirus, which experts have been speaking to since the pandemic began.


The study analyzed hospitalized cases of COVID and influenza between November 2019 and June 2020 in seven Toronto-area hospitals, finding that people admitted with COVID-19 were 1.5 times more likely to need intensive care, and stayed in hospitals 1.5 times longer than patients admitted with influenza.

The study used data extracted from hospital computer systems to describe details of patients’ hospitalizations, says Dr. Amol Verma of St. Michael’s Hospital and the University of Toronto.

That data included things like demographics, vital signs, laboratory test results, use of hospital resources like ventilators, and outcomes of their hospital stay — whether they died in hospital, needed intensive care, or were re-admitted.

The findings from the Canadian study were similar to results recently reported in France and the United States, the CMAJ says.

“We can now say definitively that COVID-19 is much more severe than seasonal influenza,” Verma said in a release.


The study described hospitalizations in Toronto and Mississauga, Ont. — areas with large populations and high levels of COVID-19 — and included all patients admitted to medical services or the intensive care units (ICU) for influenza or COVID-19.

There were 1,027 hospitalizations for COVID-19 in 972 patients — some re-admissions were included in the study —compared to 783 hospitalizations for influenza in 763 patients.

Those figures represent 23.5% of all hospitalizations for COVID-19 in Ontario during the study period.

Most patients hospitalized with COVID-19 had few other illnesses, and 21% were younger than 50 years of age. People younger than 50 also accounted for 24% of admissions to the ICU, the study found.

While COVID-19 generally affects older adults more severely, Verma says the study highlights that the illness can also have serious impacts on younger people.

The flu hospitalizations included in the study happened mainly from November 2019 to February 2020, Verma says. While COVID hospitalizations from the study occurred mainly from March to June, Verma adds there were some earlier cases in the Toronto area that were also included.

Verma says the figures may be “magnified” by low levels of immunity to the COVID virus, compared to that of the seasonal flu. He adds that COVID vaccines should help decrease severity of the infection over time.

“There is, unfortunately, also the possibility that variants of the virus could be even more severe,” he added.
