Scriptures to Strengthen Us   |   Political Cultural and Social Issues

"Instant imposition of a [statist] totalitarian system. Individuality suppressed. Families divided.
Religious, cultural, educational institutions closed down. Work, movement, information regulated by the state. Life and death decided by the state.
The transformation has been so successful here because it builds upon a deeply entrenched pre-existing machinery and ideology of welfare,
in which a large proportion of the people has come to believe it has a right and need to be looked after from cradle to grave by the government.
All they required was a pretext, an excuse -- no matter how flimsy -- and completely by coincidence the CCP flu virus arrived at the perfect moment..."

"When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him" (Deuteronomy 18:22).

How To Choose Between the Two Camps  (10 August 2020)

"Isn't it confusing with so many scientists saying different things? Who to believe? First you have the Professor Neil Ferguson camp...  Then you have the camp of Nobel laureate Professor Michael Levitt of Stanford University and Professor Sunetra Gupta of Oxford ... Who to believe? In my view there is a Biblical principle that helps us get to the answer: 'When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him' (Deuteronomy 18:22)..."

Critics Pile In On Professor Lockdown's Dodgy Dossier  (12 May 2020)

"The pandemic model used by PM Boris Johnson to justify Britain's ongoing lockdown policy is so poor that it is somewhere between 'negligence and unintentional but grave scientific misconduct', a computer expert has warned. Virologist and clinical computational epidemiologist Chris Von Csefalvay is the latest expert to cast a critical eye over Professor Neil Ferguson's influential Imperial College study ... Another review, by Craig Pirrong, Professor of Finance and Energy Markets Director ... concludes 'Models only become science when tested against data/experiment. By that standard, the Imperial College model failed spectacularly.'  Despite all this, Boris Johnson and his Cabinet colleagues continue to cite Ferguson's discredited study as if it were the gold standard of scientific research..."

Second Analysis of Ferguson's Model  (10 May 2020)

"I'd like to provide a followup to my first analysis. Firstly because new information has come to light, and secondly to address a few points of disagreement I noticed in a minority of responses. The hidden history. Someone realised they could unexpectedly recover parts of the deleted history from GitHub, meaning we now have an audit log of changes dating back to April 1st. This is still not exactly the original code Ferguson ran, but it's significantly closer. Sadly it shows that Imperial have been making some false statements..."

Of Bits, Bugs and Responsibility in the Public Square  (09 May 2020)

"[T]he code ... raises some extremely serious questions. I would like to explore some of these issues, but will not go into a detailed analysis of the code, for one reason - the code eventually (and reluctantly) shared by Imperial College is almost definitely not the code used to generate forecasts for HM Government ... (1) The Quality Issues ... (2) The Policy Issue ... (3) The Community Issue ... (4) The Science Issue..."

Ferguson's Dodgy Model Has Engendered a World-Historical Blunder  (08 May 2020)

"'History will be kind to Prof Ferguson, his 'suppression' strategy came too late for the UK economy but saved thousands of lives'  Who wrote this bilge? His mother? ... It is surely now well past the point of reasonable doubt that Neil Ferguson's Imperial College study is a busted flush - entirely unfit for purpose. Yet it is on the basis of this study that Britain instituted its lockdown. If the study is worthless then so - potentially - is the lockdown policy..."

Code Review of Ferguson's Model  (07 May 2020)

"It isn't the code Ferguson ran to produce his famous Report 9. What's been released on GitHub is a heavily modified derivative of it, after having been upgraded for over a month by a team from Microsoft ad others. This revised codebase is split into multiple files for legibility and written in C++, whereas the original program was 'a single 15,000 line file that had been worked on for a decade' (this is considered extremely poor practice). A request for the original code was made 8 days ago but ignored, and it will probably take some kind of legal compulsion for make them release it. Clearly, Imperial are too embarrassed by the state of it ever to release it of their own free will, which is unacceptable given that it was paid for by the taxpayer and belongs to them..."

Professor Lockdown, Neil Ferguson, Resigns  (07 May 2020)

"If Trump, Boris, Merkel, Macron, et al had a shred of sense, reason, smarts, and conscience, they would use this incident to attack Ferguson's ... computer model and rip them to shreds ... Ferguson's professional colleagues, who are still praising him as a genius ... know the career of making computer predictions is a fatuous con. They feast at a table of numbers, arranging them to suit their purposes. To whom it may concern: when person A (Ferguson) works for person B (Bill Gates), and person B dumps money on person A's head, person A is going to do person B's bidding ... In what universe would Ferguson ever claim a virus, which is supposed to lead to a messianic Gates vaccine, is not dangerous at all? In no universe. That is called a conflict of interest..."

YOUTUBE:  Neil Ferguson's Legacy of Doom  (06 May 2020)

"Imperial College's Neil Ferguson has caused huge damage to this country and questions should be asked of MPs as to why they listened to the hysterical advice of a man with a history of getting everything catastrophically wrong."

What Neil Ferguson's Booty Call Tells Us About Modern Politics  (06 May 2020)

"Ferguson's figures, his graphs and models, his worst-case scenarios, were the godly pronouncements upon which this historic disruption of society was based. And Ferguson fully backed the lockdown that sprung from his work. 'Godly' is not an exaggeration. the speed with which Ferguson's models - mere models, remember - were transformed into a kind of Biblical writ, a revelation of doom, was extraordinary. I had that number of 500,000 thrown in my face during media discussions about the lockdown. Anyone who questioned the wisdom of the lockdown, or merely suggested it should be very brief, would find themselves being battered by Ferguson's figures. Almost overnight it became tantamount to blasphemy to question these models..."

YOUTUBE:  Lies, Damned Lies and Coronavirus Statistics  (17 April 2020)

"Scientists floating on clouds who would never have any sort of political motive for anything, and who certainly haven't received $79,006,570 from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation this year alone, as Imperial College has, would never have any reason for skewing any of their results, or of making anything seem hyperbolic or alarmist in order to scare people into accepting various policies ... No. Never. Except for all the times where we have seen that demonstrably happening in the past, and this is not a trivial matter ... Garbage In, Garbage out ... which is to say, worthless..."

 

Neil Ferguson's Track Record

"'Professor Neil Ferguson's notorious over-egged and over-hyped model predicting half a million deaths, which proved to be the biggest exaggeration in the history of political spin'.  It's nowhere near his biggest exaggeration:

  • Covid-19 UK so far: predicting 500,000 deaths - 42,000 have died [EMcD: please note that many of these 42,000 deaths cannot be attributed to Covid-19] he's been out by a factor of 12,
  • Covid-19 Sweden so far: his predictions were out by a factor of 17,
  • Swine Flu, 2009: predicted 65,000 deaths - the reality was 283. His prediction was out by a factor of 230,
  • CJD, 2002: predicted 50,000 deaths - the reality was 178. His prediction was out by a factor of 281,
  • Bird Flu, 2005: predicted '200 million people probably' worldwide - the reality identified by the WHO was 455. His prediction was out by a factor of 439,560.

Quotes and Comments

 

What is Covid-19?

"Covid-19 is supposedly a pneumonia as a complication of SARS-COV-2, but ...

  • For most people, Covid-19 is a mild illness which is never confirmed as being due to SARS-COV-2, but the perception of reality is created by official general prognosis,
  • A developed SARS-COV-2 infection could be flu, or even a bacterial infection, and Covid-19, or the pneumonia associated with it, would in fact arise as a complication due to these other causations,
  • Pneumonia or severe respiratory complications can occur from a treatment for cancer - which incriminates other pre-existing conditions in combination with their medical treatments,
  • Meanwhile, quite astonishingly, there is no acknowledgement of what might be true Covid-19, which is an infection of the lungs related to the interaction between SARS-COV/SARS-COV-2 and Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme 2 (ACE2) that is promoted in treatment by prescribed drugs.

"[T]he UK Government's reaction to Covid-19 has been way beyond anything anyone could call proportional. It has been unnecessarily, grotesquely exaggerated, and pointlessly damaging" [source].

 

Fear is the Little Death

"As Frank Herbert wrote in his novel, Dune, 'Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration' and collective fear is also the primary tool that governments have long used to bring potentially recalcitrant populations under control... sometimes to the point of obliteration.  Historically, that type of fear is not sudden but eats away at the heart and soul of a people one small nibble at a time until the minds of a now docile demographic willingly acquiesce to any number of outrageous edicts and restraints upon their lives and freedoms in the hope that in so doing this will ensure their personal survival.  And note always that once this induced fear has taken a firm hold the decisive instruments of draconian suppression are placed in the hands of powerful enforcement agencies who invariably career out of control and become a law unto themselves, quickly becoming too big and too powerful for even the political drones who unleashed them to restrain.

"Look about you now at the actions and verbal vomitus coming from HM Government's emergent blue uniformed SS, particularly their local Obersturmbannführers so erroneously referred to as Chief Constables. (Did anyone else notice the Home Secretary singing their praises at the daily briefing session a few days ago... with the senior Obergruppenführer by her side?)  Have no doubt about it, this is the situation extant in so many once-democratic countries throughout the Anglosphere and the Staatspolizei certainly won't give up their intoxicating new found powers easily, so think again - is it really worth the candle that you should sell your children into a future defined only by blind obedience to the Diktats of a monolithic controlling State in order to prolong  your lives by a few years?  'Action this day or never' is a cliché that has so often turned out to be a truism.

"And, finally, the seminal question that will probably remain unanswered until sanity and honesty return - why is it that a particular subsection of the demographic is being so grotesquely pandered to and permitted to break all social distancing rules with impunity whilst the original indigenes are not?  Also, have you noticed the constant compassionate references to 'Little Ishmail' and his poor family?  No mention of little David or Julia and their families, of course. Perhaps the answer lies there.

"In conclusion, I am convinced that above all other political aberrations Selective Policing is the definitive sign of a corrupted Establishment acting with malignant intent to a hidden agenda and thus, with reference to the two preceding questions, I regret that I must leave you to mentally fill in, in private, those details which we are not permitted to mention in the public domain or face being prosecuted for a hate crime if we do... damn! How Orwellian is that?" [Reader's comment at source]. 

 

Coronavirus Act: What Are We Consenting To?

"In the UK, it is worth recapping what it is we are consenting to with the Coronavirus Act:

  • We consent to increased State surveillance of ourselves and our family;
  • We are happy that we could be detained, without charge, because some state official suspects, or claims they suspect, we may be infected;
  • It is fine with us that we or our loved ones can be sectioned under the Mental Health Act on the recommendation of a single doctor and neither we nor they need to have the protection of a second opinion we are locked up;
  • We accept that the state can retain our biometric data and fingerprints for an extended period;
  • We consent that jury trials are a bit of an anachronism and Judges can hear more evidence by video or even audio link;
  • We think it's fine that the evidence required, and processes undertaken, to determine and record our or our loved ones' deaths can be eroded to the point where they can be registered by people with no medical or legal expertise at all;
  • We don't think the NHS needs to adhere to practice standards or bother with assessing the needs of some patients, especially older people;
  • We are also fine with the complete suspension of democracy in Britain;
  • We accept all of this based upon a unique subset of scientific opinion which, contrary t every known scientific principle, can never be questioned;
  • We agree with the MSM that people who question any aspect of the stories they tell us are dangerous because these people just don't care if their own loved ones die. Only true believers care about their families;
  • We also accept the need for the State to invest considerable resources creating counter disinformation units whose purpose is to censor anything and everything which questions our firmly held beliefs. The beliefs informed by many of the same people doing the censoring..." [source].

 

 

 

"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.
Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday ...
He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways ...
he shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble ... and show him my salvation"
(Psalm 91)
