"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save that he had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name" (Revelation 13:15-17).

Ten Reasons Why the Jab Must Never Be Mandatory  (21 August 2021)

"Mandatory vaccination has no place in a free society.  Public health policy should never be coercive and should always be participatory ... The role of public health agencies is to provide the public with accurate information, and allow individuals and communities to make their own decisions.  Seven ethical principles of public health should be at the heart of any public health intervention:  (1) Non-maleficence ...  (2) Beneficence ...  (3) Respect for autonomy ...  (4) Health maximisation ...  (5) Efficiency ...  (6) Justice ...  (7) Proportionality ... Human rights, scientific facts and common sense should also be applied ... (8)  Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 ...  (9) Herd immunity ...  (10) Non-derogable rights ..."

No Jab, No NHS Treatment? Suits Me Just Fine  (18 June 2021)

"UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock has appeared to suggest that people who refuse to get the vaccine may be banned from using the NHS ... The point of the NHS - if it has a point at all anymore - is to serve the whole nation ... The NHS treats smokers, drinkers, the morbidly obese, intravenous drug users and so on without fear or favour.  It is free at the point of use for everyone.  But if the Conservatives what to change that arrangement in yet another of their endless, increasingly desperate attempts to bully everyone into taking Covid jabs, then I think I speak for most of us refuseniks when I say: Be my guest!  Put it this way.  I'm a lot, lot more scared of the NHS than I am of Covid..."

Hitler's Nazi Doctors Injected People Against Their Will. Only Nazis Would. Your Body Is Sacred  (21 May 2021)

"The full-on Covid terror campaign has very obviously been scheduled to return this autumn, when the 'next wave' or the 'deadly variant' will be manufactured, live ion television. First, they grabbed the power to lock us indoors and mask our faces. Using fear as a weapon, the government began its campaign of obedience-training. We were threatened with a choice between death or arrest. They took care to break up our families ... Finally, having terrorised the entire country for nine months, the Johnson/Covid regime promised us permanent, isolated lockdown unless we agreed to have repeated dollops of the least-tested chemicals in world history injected into our bloodstreams ... Those who refuse to take the commercial, corporate drugs of government choice, are to be shunned, banned, excluded, forbidden to live..."

Conform with the Covid Fascists - Or Die  (15 November 2020)

"Are you hot for Covid-fascism? There are a lot of people out there who were exposed as little Hitlers once the virus hit. The lovers of lockdown, the people who want stricter lockdown ... and the ones who want compulsory vaccine ... The latest idea from the government's Behavioural Insights Team is that those who test negative for Covid get to wear wristbands that allows them freedom to move ... The idea came from ex-communist Slovakia ... I think it is a genius idea but it doesn't go far enough. Those who are not Covid-free or who refuse the vaccine should have to wear some kind of badge. No, a star, a star is better, something yellow. It's been done before somewhere. It worked out well ... They are not messing around, folks. This isn't a rehearsal..."

YOUTUBE COVID-1984 From A Two Week Lockdown to Mandatory Vaccination & Life in Prison  (24 August 2020)

"Unfortunately COVID-1984 continues to escalate. We were initially told that we would need to have a temporary two week lockdown to 'flatten the curve'.  Six months later, we are still in lockdown and now mandatory vaccination policies are being rolled out in addition to severe penalties for violating mandates which include life in prison! We have seen cases where people have been forcibly removed from their home by the police, in front of their families and have been forced into quarantine. All of this in response to a virus with a 99+% survival rate which multiple world-renowned experts believe originated in a laboratory funded by the US government. Watch the full report for free and decide for yourself..."

BITCHUTE:  Mandatory Vaccinations: Potential Insidious and Coercive Strategies  (29 July 2020)

"For a while now, we've just sort of presumed that the vaccine will be forced upon people by saying, 'Well, if you don't take it, you don't get to go to the shops, you don't get to go on public transport, you can't attend large public gatherings', and so on, and so forth. Now, the issue really is that there are a great many people, even people who don't actually think this is a scam, who are still wary of vaccines and they're very wary of a rushed vaccine. How do you bring those people around?..."

YOUTUBE:  Your Body, Their Choice  (17 July 2020)

"Stripped of its contextual baggage, the phrase 'My Body, My Choice' makes a compelling rallying cry because it conveys a fundamental truth that we all innately understand: I have the claim to my own body and what is done to it. So why, then, are we being asked to believe that when it comes to vaccinations during a declared pandemic it is 'Your Body, Their Choice'?"

Imagine There's No Virus - It's Easy If You Try  (07 July 2020)  [NB: some swearing]

"Courtesy of his ownership of various Coronavirus patents [Bill Gates] now stands poised to become the world's richest man as soon as governments worldwide can persuade their sheeple to accept the compulsory vaccination of every live human being ... Unless you, me and everyone else starts getting very angry very fast, this medical-tyranny nightmare is going to happen ... Not compulsory, you see, they will just make your life virtually impossible if you refuse. Think you can live without a bank account in the soon-to-be cashless society? Dream on. Or perhaps you are an innocent, cooperative sort who thinks the government can be trusted to fire their chemicals of choice into your blood ... Britain's vaccinator-in-chief Matt Hancock, who poses as the 'Health Secretary' was loudly declaring his enthusiasm for forced vaccination laws in the UK TWELVE MONTHS AGO. And people wonder why this ghoul can't stop smirking and laughing when he appears on TV with his latest batch of asinine commands for us little people? Well, he's smirking because his paymasters in Big Phama will reward him with absolute fortunes for services rendered once his job is done. He's smirking because so many ignorant people are [so] scared out of their wits they will do his job for him and demand compulsory needles for all..."

BITCHUTE:  I Hate to Say I Told You So...  (27 June 2020)

"The King by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it" (Proverbs 29:4).

"Well, I hate to say 'I told you so', but I did previously say that mandatory vaccines would be introduced by initially tying them to international travel ... There will be a backlash to mandatory vaccines for Covid19 and to some degree that backlash may even be partially successfully within a person's country. But if they choose to go abroad, vaccinations could easily be made a requirement. Furthermore, I've talked about things like digital immunity IDs, and I've mentioned this article from Scientific American about invisible ink technology that could contain vaccine records..."

Quotes and Comments

"They have begun demanding total control over our bodies and our blood. Those who refuse to take the commercial, corporate drugs of government choice, are to be shunned, banned, excluded, forbidden to live ... Forced vaccination is chemical rape ... Nobody owns the body of another human being - nobody has the right to force chemicals into you, or your children. This is the hill ion which we triumph or die. Lose thi9s fight ad the terror will never end. Concede this one final step and all human life will be in the hands of greedy billionaire psychopaths who care for nothing beyond their own deranged ambitions"

"Choose vaccination if you wish. But if you let them force one drop of anything into your body, the billionaire vaccinators will never stop. You will be pumped full - by force, every six months, every three months, ever month, every week - all the way to your hastily-dug grave. That is what they do ... One step at a time we have been dragged to the point of the needle that never stops. To those who think Covid vaccination is a good thing - go ahead - it's your choice. But it's only a choice so long as 'no' is an option. The first time you choose to accept - or defend - compulsory vaccination for all, marks the last choice you will ever make. From that moment on you become property - a slave of the state, body and soul ... Would any sane human seriously hand over control of their precious body and blood to every money-mad 'scientist' now climbing this sordid corporate ladder on the way to his first billion - and the next, and the next?"

"Hitler's Nazi government employed 'scientists' who slaughtered at will.  The medical nazis pioneered the technique of human experimentation where injections were forced upon the unwilling - because they could.  Only a Nazi would demand that power - but YOUR government's 'scientists' are demanding the same power right now.  See them for what they are before it is too late.  Don't tell me 'it couldn't happen here.'  It is happening here, it is happening now.  Your body is yours - your life is your own.  Fight for it.  Fight for your life"

"So, a vaccinated murderer escapes custody, carjacks a vehicle of which he quickly loses control, the vehicle mounts the pavement and ploughs into a group of children before hitting a lamp post and bursting into flames.  An unvaccinated passer by, seeing the carnage, bravely and selflessly rescues the driver from the burning vehicle, receiving severe burns for his efforts.  The NHS willingly treats the murder who has just added to his tally of crime by killing and maiming several children, while refusing to treat his brave rescuer because obviously he's the real criminal for refusing the experimental 'vaccine'.  I think that the UK social credit system is in need of complete overhaul before it is in even put into place"

Non-Derogable Rights:
  As stated in Article 58 of the Siracusa Principles on the Limitation and Derogation Provisions in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1958), apply under all circumstances, even under threat of 'national security':

  • 'No state part shall, even in time of emergency threatening the life of the nation, derogate from the Covenant's guarantees of the right to life; freedom from torture, cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, and from medical or scientific experimentation without free consent ... and freedom of thought, conscience and religion.  These rights are not derogable under any conditions even for the asserted purpose of preserving the life of the nation'." [source].


20 Things I've Learned...

"20 Things I've Learned (Or Had Confirmed) About Humanity During the 'Pandemic':

  • Most people would rather be in the majority, than be right;
  • At least 20% of the population has strong authoritarian tendencies, which will emerge under the right conditions;
  • Fear of death is only rivalled by the fear of social disapproval.  The latter could be stronger;
  • Propaganda is just as effective in the modern day as it was 100 years ago.  Access to limitless information has not made the average person any wiser;
  • Anything and everything can and will be politicized by the media, government, and those who trust them;
  • Many politicians and large corporations will gladly sacrifice human lives if it is conducive to their political and financial aspirations;
  • Most people believe the government acts in the best interests of the people.  Even many who are vocal critics of the government;
  • Once they have made up their mind, most people would rather commit to being wrong, than admit they were wrong;
  • Humans can be trained and conditioned quickly and relatively easily to significantly alter their behaviours - for better or worse;
  • When sufficiently frightened, most people will not only accept authoritarianism, but demand it;
  • People who are dismissed as 'conspiracy theorists' are often well researched and simply ahead of the mainstream narrative;
  • Most people value safety and security more than freedom and liberty, even if said 'safety' is merely an illusion;
  • Hedonic adaptation occurs in both directions, and once inertia sets in, it is difficult to get people back to 'normal';
  • A significant percentage of people thoroughly enjoy being subjugated;
  • 'The Science' has evolved into a secular pseudo-religion for millions of people in the West.  This religion has little to do with science itself;
  • Most people care more about looking like they are doing the right things, rather than actually doing the right thing;
  • Politics, the media, science, and the healthcare industries are all corrupt, to varying degrees.  Scientists and doctors can be bought as easily as politicians;
  • If you make people comfortable enough, they will not revolt.  You can keep millions docile as you strip their rights, by giving them money, food, and entertainment;
  • Modern people are overly complacent and lack vigilance when it comes to defending their own freedoms from government overreach;
  • It's easier to fool a person than to convince them they have been fooled" [quoted in a reader's comment at source].


Wake Up, Folks...

"The UK Government first insisted in the lockdown/house imprisonment to (supposedly) enable the NHS to cope.  The NHS has coped.  The hastily thrown up Nightingale hospital across the country (across the world) are standing empty: the 4000-bed Nightingale hospital in London has had a maximum of nineteen (if I recollect correctly) Covid-19 patients.  The Government has now moved these initial goalposts; insisting instead on five utterly vague conditions that can be drawn out indefinitely: i.e., primarily until a certain billionaire founder of Microsoft (with a certain chief medical advisor to the UK Government and a certain Imperial College 'scientific' computer modeller in his pocket) can implement his long-held desire to impose his mandatory vaccinations and digital certificates on the world's population.

"The bigger picture is the global implementation of Agenda 21/2030 ... A21's Sustainable Development Goals are directly relevant to our current situation because the social/travel/other limits now being placed on the world's population are the seeds of the UN's A21 programme for its planned one world government.  And in its turn, A21 is a precursor or a shadow of the trib and will be preparing the world for antichrist's 15 minutes (well, three-and-a-half-years) of fame.  How long it will take for the post-lockdown 'New Normal' to morph into Agenda 21, and how long the world will be subjected to A21 before the trib starts, I have no idea and I think I'd rather not know for now.  However, the good news [is that the Lord will] return to put an end to all these shenanigans, and set up His eternal Kingdom" [source].


Believing Absurdities

"Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities" (Voltaire)

"Well, we're now living in a time where a huge chunk of the global population seem to believe that wearing a face-nappy or a face-shield, and quarantining the healthy, and destroying the economy, and putting millions out of work, and not treating cancer patients, and preventing dying people from having family at their bedside in their final hours, and keeping humanity from each other with anti-social distancing, and treating school-children like this: ... and this: ... and this: ... is somehow justified.  These are absurdities.  And the vast majority of people either firmly believe in them, or at the very least, tacitly endorse them through lack of resistance ...

"But with sufficient amounts of fear and propaganda pumped into their brains for months on end, [people have] been convinced that to protect them from a virus with the same fatality rate as the flu, they believe it is justified to wear a face-mask.  Re-breathing in their own CO2, compromising their immune systems, and even breathing through [the mask] when it's soaking wet and thus increasing their chances of becoming actually sick.

"What can one say about the mindset of a populace that is comprised of docile, reprogrammable sheep, with a herd mentality and no critical or rational thinking?  That, I fear, may be a society that will permit tyranny, and even atrocities, because it lacks the ability to question media messaging, government mandates, and reflect on the nature of reality and their own behaviour.  Moreover, a people who have outsourced their critical and reasoning ability to someone else, will soon find that evil flourishes in a moral vacuum.

"Truly horrific outcomes become possible, when the populace at large have been trained to place their unwavering trust in authority and simply obey government mandates without question" [source].


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].


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].
