The Chinese regime is doubling down in its “zero covid” strategy. In recent weeks, new covid cases have been detected in several cities. In a world of the more-contagious omicron variant, this is to be expected.
But what has been the Chinese state’s response? It’s more of the same. Lockdowns, travel suspensions, and more. NBC reports:
Tianjin, which detected China’s first community spread of Omicron on Saturday, is rolling out a second round of mass testing on its 14 million residents on Wednesday. …The outbreak has already spread to Anyang, a city in Henan province some 300 miles (482 kilometers) away, prompting a full lockdown …Tianjin officials said at a news conference Tuesday that all bus services to Beijing had been suspended. … On Wednesday, 425 flights were canceled at Tianjin Binhai International Airport, accounting for 95% of all scheduled flights…Tianjin authorities on Sunday ordered citizens not to leave the city unless absolutely necessary. Those who want to leave must present a negative Covid test taken within 48 hours…
It’s hard to believe that anyone still believes that covid will go away if government authorities just “lock down harder.” But China is hardly the only example of how this delusion can win many adherents among the technocrats and the expert class.
After all, let it not be forgotten that much of the world had adopted a zero covid policy early on, and this absurd policy endured for months. In Europe, of course, millions upon millions of people were virtually locked in their homes for months on end. As Philipp Bagus reported from Spain in spring of 2020, one wasn’t allowed to go outside without facing the wrath of state enforcers.
In America, the “experts” frequently spoke out in favor of zero covid, stating that lockdowns could eradicate the disease and that people would have to stay on lockdown until that time. For example, on April 2 of 2020, Anthony Fauci endorsed this idea, stating that social distancing requirements could not be relaxed until there are “essentially no new cases, no deaths for a period of time.” Hawaii explicitly embraced zero covid, and adopted a policy in 2020 based on the idea that public schools would never reopen until there was no longer any “community spread” and “no new cases” were detected over a period of four weeks.
Needless to say, those were totally unrealistic goals. They reflected only the plans of technocrats who were more concerned with living out their bizarre fetishes for lockdowns and border closures that with gaining a better grasp of the situation or with respecting basic human rights. Even Australia—an island nation that could perhaps plausibly hope to actually close its borders—has given up on the idea.
In other words, the “experts” in America wanted to recreate Chinese despotism in America. They adopted a lockdown policy that had already long been rejected. Lockdowns were already expected to bring long term side effects, such as surges in mental health problems—some of the worst of it among the young—now being reported by hospitals. The WHO even concluded that lockdowns ought to be rejected because “there is no obvious rationale for this measure.”
But perhaps the media and government officials were so successful at sowing panic in the general population in the spring of 2020 that the health technocrats saw their chance to try a new experiment in social engineering that they had previously considered unfeasible.
Fortunately, though, by the middle of 2020, it became clear that lockdowns simply weren’t going to be tolerated by much of the general public. Most state and local governments in the US abandoned zero covid rapidly, although the usual totalitarians in the media bemoaned the end of the policy, insisting that the abandonment of lockdowns would drench the non-lockdown jurisdictions in blood. This was predicted for US states like Georgia, and for countries like Sweden—where lockdowns were quickly jettisoned or not imposed at all.
As time went on, it became obvious that the non-lockdown jurisdictions did not fare significantly worse than the locked down ones. Some areas—Sweden, for instance—fared better. Some of the world’s harshest lockdown regimes—such as those in Peru, Argentina, the UK, and New York—also had some of the worst rates of deaths per million.
For the zero-covid crowd, reality got in the way.
Neo-Zero Covid: The Pivot to Vaccines
The zero covid mentality endures, however. The second wave of the zero covid mentality came with the idea that with universal vaccination, covid would disappear.
And, of course, once vaccines began to appear, it was hailed as a magic bullet that would ensure that the vaccinated would be unable to spread the disease. This ideology was expressed in a rant by Rachel Maddow who back in March 2020 harangued her viewers with the “fact” that “virus stops with every vaccinated person.” She continued: “A vaccinated person gets exposed to the virus, the virus does not infect them, the virus cannot then use that person to go anywhere else.”
This was all a complete fabrication. The vaccine never stopped the spread, and with the advent of the omicron variant, it’s now apparently the case that the vaccine doesn’t even slow the spread. The virus is quickly spreading among vaccinated.
It’s no longer possible to even pretend that vaccination prevents transmission. The only argument left to supporters of the vaccine mandate is that vaccines help against serious disease and death. That’s excellent, but it has nothing to do with public health because it’s clear the unvaccinated aren’t the reason the disease has not been eradicated.
And then there is the fact that vaccination has, in part, likely contributed to new covid mutations. This isn’t new with covid. The idea that treatments can lead to new mutations is not new, of course, and it’s long been known that under a variety of situations, leaky vaccines can produce vaccine resistant mutations.
This is also known to occur in the case of covid. For example, in an article for the Journal of Physical Chemistry (December 2021), the authors note “vaccine-breakthrough or antibody-resistant mutations provide a new mechanism of viral evolution.” And specifically on covid, they write how mutations are often more common in places with higher vaccination rates:
we reveal that the occurrence and frequency of vaccine-resistant mutations correlate strongly with the vaccination rates in Europe and America. We anticipate that as a complementary transmission pathway, vaccine-breakthrough or antibody-resistant mutations, like those in Omicron, will become a dominating mechanism of SARS-CoV-2 evolution when most of the world’s population is either vaccinated or infected.
This can make things even worse when coupled with other covid mitigation measures. As Vivek Ramaswamy and Apoorva Ramaswamy explained in the Wall Street Journal last week it’s simply not realistic to think vaccines can be constantly adjusted to keep up with new variants. And,
Meanwhile, mask mandates and social-distancing measures will have created fertile ground for new variants that evade vaccination even more effectively. Significant antigenic shifts may create new strains that are increasingly difficult to target with vaccines at all. There are no vaccines for many viruses, despite decades of effort to develop them.
That is, vaccination isn’t making covid go away. The politically correct version of the narrative also completely denies that the failure of vaccines to prevent the spread is even a significant factor in the spread of new mutations. The purveyors of the narrative still insist that only the unvaccinated have any responsibility in the continued existence of the disease. Consider, for example, a recent mainstream media report quoting a doctor who dutifully repeated the political orthodoxy that “Without a large percentage of people being vaccinated, the virus has been allowed to mutate.” Specifically, he further claimed that if “roughly 70% of the population” were vaccinated or naturally infected, this would bring the spread of the disease to a halt through “herd immunity.” But—as the doctor now intones in a forlorn voice—that can’t be achieved because there hasn’t been enough vaccination.
But given his criteria, we should expect places with at least 70% vaccination rates to have halted the spread of disease, right? Not surprisingly, this has not happened. In Portugal, for instance, the fully vaccinated rate—is at 90 percent. In Chile, it’s at 87 percent. It’s 75 percent in France. So, surely the spread of covid has been stopped in all these places? The answer is no. New cases are raging in Portugal, Chile, and France, with all these countries hitting new highs in recent days.
Whether we’re talking about vaccine mandates or lockdowns, it’s clear the zero covid strategy has been an abject failure. They’re still trying it in some places like China where government propaganda is largely unquestioned and where people practice unquestioning obedience to the regime at a scale that makes the all-too-complacent West look downright rebellious by comparison.
Don’t expect the “experts” in any country to give up on their slogans any time soon. But it is clear that reality will eventually catch up with them. Whether or not any respect for human rights remains at the end of it all is another matter.

EXCLUSIVE: Liberals prepped talking points to defend participation in 2019 Military World Games in Wuhan . . . In October of 2019, just three months before the Canadian government acknowledged the coronavirus as a potential threat, the Canadian military jetted off to Wuhan, China, for the Military World Games. Following the games, many soldier athletes returned to Canada with what was described as ‘severe pneumonia’. Naturally, when news of the coronavirus broke worldwide only a few months later, many of the military athletes who had been sick wanted to test for COVID-19 antibodies, but the military denied this request.
[This seems very suspicious, as though the Canadian military was working with the PLA to spread the virus deliberately. There were also flights from Wuhan province to Canada occurring then and right up until the travel ban March 2020. The CCP has benefited from this mass hysteria and engineered the disease. Its spread was likely planned, as an act of asymmetric warfare]

Ending the scandemic with a scam, by Mark Oshinskie [commentary] . . . “The Scamdemic overreaction should never have begun. “Two weeks to flatten the curve” sounded like bureaucratic blather to me. And it was. When Fauci told that lie, he was only getting warmed up. The politically-driven overreaction could have been declared over at any time. Popular protest could have ended it, but too many people were too gullible, too materially comfortable and insulated from the lockdown’s effects, and/or too mollified by their iPhones.”

Rebel News: Kelly Brown, the independent investor and self-proclaimed “accidental and unofficial” COVID data analyst, recently joined me for an update on his ongoing research into COVID-19 data put out by public health authorities. Kelly was one of the first people in Ontario to bring to light the alarming myocarditis risks showing up in the province’s reports on COVID-19 vaccines.
“Since his previous presentation to the Toronto Board of Health, which oversees and advises Toronto Public Health, Kelly has observed a 36% increase in myocarditis incidents!
According to Public Health Ontario’s own data, nearly half of the reported myocarditis cases are appearing in 12 to 29-year-old males . . . Yet Toronto Public Health and the Toronto Board of Health continue to downplay this risk. Are we ever going to get some answers and accountability? Where’s the mainstream media on this?”
It’s Time to Put the Pandemic Era Behind Us . . . “One reason support for lockdown measures is fading could be due in part to the measures’ long-term side effects. One depressing example is the increase in overdose deaths during the pandemic, hitting record highs . . . Along with this are the mental health effects on youth that school closures have had . . . With these problems only continuing to fester, and given the mildness of Omicron, it is time to . . . finally move beyond the pandemic phase.
“There are obstacles to be overcome of course, such as the hyper-politicization of the pandemic and the cynical usage of the crisis by those in elite positions. As the months have dragged on, it has become ever more clear that many of the decisions have been informed almost entirely by political calculations instead of being directed by the data. This accounts for why so many of the knee-jerk, inconsistent measures amounted to little more than theatre. Fearmongering by the media also has to stop.
“As for the continued doomsday predictions from public health experts who have enjoyed their time in the spotlight, elected officials need to finally call time on them and move quickly toward putting this era behind us.”
Half of Quebec’s Patients Hospitalized ‘With COVID’ Not admitted ‘FOR Covid’ [My comment: The phenomenon of ‘incidental hospitalization’ – now “officially” recognised by the MSM is something many activist for freedom have been talking about – and censored for — for nearly 2 years.

The Right to Healthy Food: Comorbidities & COVID-19
“. . . Data now shows that lockdowns seemingly had limited if any positive impacts on the trajectory of COVID-19 and in 2022 the world – especially the poor – is paying an immense price not least in terms of loss of income, loss of livelihoods, the deterioration of mental and physical health, the eradication of civil liberties, disrupted supply chains and shortages . . .
“Before proceeding, the distinction should be made between dying from COVID and dying with COVID . . . From the data presented above, it is clear that the vast majority of ‘COVID deaths’ (dying with COVID) are people who have serious, ongoing health conditions, the prevalence of which among the population has been rising year on year for decades and accelerating . . .
“because a lot of the health-related problems we see can also be traced back to modern farming methods and how food is cultivated, not least the toxic agrochemicals used . . .
“Consider that little is being done to address the food-related public health crisis. Then consider that governments are going all out to vaccinate children for a virus that seems to pose minimal risk to them. There is no logic to this approach . . . [the government] has been all too willing to oversee a massive, ongoing health crisis caused by the chemical pollution of our bodies.
“Meanwhile, the unvaccinated are being cast as irresponsible or much worse if we listen to the recent reprehensible outbursts from leaders like Macron or Trudeau for having genuine concerns about, for instance, vaccine safety and the logic behind mass vaccination across all ages and risk groups.
“Given the prevalence of the underlying health conditions linked to ‘COVID deaths’, it is clear where the real irresponsibility lies – with government inaction for decades in terms of failing to tackle the corporations behind the health-damaging food they produce.”
[This is an important point, one not discussed nearly enough. Poor diet (coupled with lack of exercise) is probably the # 1 cause of low immunity and poor health in modern industrial societies. Lockdowns and mRNA injections only made it much worse. The solution to good health is to eat healthy food and exercise and as much as possible avoid pharmaceutical drugs — many of which are toxic but approved anyway — because government health agencies are corrupt]
In Animal Studies, After Being Injected With MRNA Technology, All Animals Died Upon Reinfection . . .In animal studies, after mRNA injections have been administered to cats, when the virus arrived once again into the body, it arrived like a Trojan Horse, undetected by the cats’ own immune system. The virus multiplied unchallenged and all animals involved in the experiment died from various causes. According to Dr. Lee Merritt, “What happened is all animals died… but they didn’t died of the “vaccine”. What they died from what used to be called “immune enhancement” and now they call it “antibody dependent enhancement” (ADE).
[I just want to point out that subjecting cats — or any animals — to these cruel experiments is morally wrong. It is evil and unjustifiable]
Below: the number of deaths solely attributable to Covid is way lower than what was officially record, says this physician. He obtained a Freedom of Information Act report from the UK which showed that of the people who died from the disease who had no “co-morbidities” (i.e. no underlying conditions), it was a relatively small number. Certainly not enough to justify the massive government over-reaction (which incidentally had no effect and caused great harm in the process). He provides data and links below the video.
Below: The number of deaths linked to the CDC-promoted vaccines has skyrocketed over the past 12 months, according to the CDC’s own data. There are at least over a million cases of COVID-19 vaccine adverse reaction including more than 21,745 deaths through Jan. 7, 2022, and a total of 1,033,992 people have suffered Covid vaccine adverse events, according to VAERS [and typically these are under-reported, which means there could be 100x that number]

What is the Great Reset? [a popular conservative video blogger comments]
Commentary from True North (one of Canada’s best independent media sources) reported on the government’s short-sighted vax mandates, which caused a shortage of healthcare workers, overtaxing the system. This has been wrongly blamed on the unvaccinated. True North examined the problem honestly and reported:
“. . . nearly 10,000 health care workers across Canada have been placed on unpaid leave or had their jobs terminated because they refuse to comply with draconian vaccine mandates. As a result, hospitals across the country are reporting staffing shortages as the Omicron variant spreads throughout the country – infecting both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals . . .
“If you paid attention to the legacy media’s coverage in recent weeks, you’ll notice that there is some reporting on the staffing shortages in Canada’s hospitals. Of course, they fail to acknowledge the elephant in the room contributing to this growing crisis – vaccine mandates.
“Firing thousands of health care workers because of their vaccine status was a short-sighted decision, and now we’re seeing our health care system pushed to extreme limits. Canadians’ personal health decisions have nothing to do with the government’s failure to break up a failing monopoly and expand our health care system’s capacity.”
[This should make clear that the Canadian system of universal health care is in trouble and was made worse by government over the last two years]

Vaccine Mandates Reveal that the State is our Enemy [libertarian commentary on Trudeau’s nefarious agenda]
“The vaccine mandate is a politically expedient use of state authority to attack Canadian citizens. Here the state is attacking and usurping individual autonomy. The state turns an emergency into a resource for accumulating power at the expense of individuals. All the state’s institutional voices, especially the media and even WOKE corporate interests conspire in exhibiting the progressive conversion of individual rights into state power necessary for the public good.
“Here then is the truth about vaccine mandates in Canada. There is no federal law invoking them. Constitutionally, the Federal government has no authority over health. Section 92 makes health an exclusively Provincial jurisdiction. But just as this government has usurped Provincial jurisdiction over natural resources, it has seized authority over health through bribery. It has thereby transformed a pandemic into an economic, debt, national security crisis, and an employment crisis The last one is particularly relevant because the Federal Government is now the nation’s largest and most ubiquitous employer . . . This then is the awful dilemma that the unvaccinated face: to trade their liberty and the integrity of their own bodies for the security of a job that allows them to support their families.
“Can there still be any doubt that the most oppressed Canadian minority is the individual, and that our greatest enemy is blind faith in a benign state even when it plunders and oppresses individuals in the collective public interest? H.L. Mencken expressed this perilous state of affairs back in 1926: “The State has taken on a vast mass of new duties and responsibilities; it has spread out its powers until they penetrate to every act of the citizen, however secret; it has begun to throw around its operations the high dignity and impeccability of a state religion; its agents become a separate and superior caste, with authority to bind and loose, and their thumbs in every pot. But it still remains, as it was in the beginning, the common enemy of all well-disposed, industrious and decent men.“

[Note: this has been going on since Trudeau took office. Every time he gives away a mine in Canada to a Chinese mining corporation the Trudeau Foundation gets a kick-back. He is the most corrupt leader in Canada’s history. And he has an agreement with China that they can put soldiers in Canada to protect the mines, which represents a security threat, as CSIS notes.

“Zero Risk” Is Too Risky for Me [commentary] . . . “What I don’t want is a life ruled by “zero risk” strictures. It’s impossible. The only way we’ve seen it tried is by central planners in police states, but all they really wind up accomplishing is outlawing people from telling the truth about zero chance of producing zero risk. As I said, I tend to be risk averse, and the risk of “zero risk” tyranny is far, far too great for me. Patrick Henry declared under a much greater risk environment, “Give me liberty, or give me death!” My request is not so audacious. I seek the liberty we had even if it comes with a slight uptick in risk.”
[Candace Malcom is hopeful, but my take on it this: if this were about public health, the government would do the right thing. But for Trudeau and the globalist it never was about protecting health. It was their opportunity for the Great Reset (Trudeau said so himself), which means the implementation of an authoritarian biosecurity state patterned after Communist China (which Trudeau admires so much and wants to emulate). So if he has his way, Canada will follow China’s disastrous zero-Covid policy, effectively turning Canada into a hermit kingdom like North Korea. The solution, if Canadians want to stop this madness, is get rid of Trudeau ad all the other apparatchiks (eg Tam and other health commissars) who ruined Canada and wake up before it’s too late.]
Imperfect ‘leaky’ COVID vaccines could actually enhance transmission of highly virulent variants. Can some vaccines drive evolution of more infectious variants? Traditional belief is that natural selection culls lethal pathogens if host death greatly reduces transmission; an evolutionary dead-end.
Bill Maher Goes Off on Medical Establishment, Experimental Vaccines in Latest Interview. Bill has broken through the mass formation psychosis that consumes many Americans today.
Saying No: The Winter of My Non-Consent. [This is a great article from a Leftist perspective against medical tyranny] Excerpt:
“The government response to the pandemic has created an entirely new category of discrimination based on a person’s health immunisation status (and that) the evidence gathered through this survey suggests that it has become a virtuous act to seek out the personal medical information of strangers through uncomfortable and public interrogation.”
“… I don’t think incitement to hatred is an unfair or inaccurate description of what O’Toole is saying and I think it is absolutely disgraceful that the Irish Times ever chose to publish this bigoted diatribe. So much for ‘we’re in this together.’ It’s now abundantly clear that we most certainly are not … I and many others like me are sick to the teeth of being scapegoated and blamed for everything. We did not cause this crisis and we are not responsible for its continuation.”
“I’M DONE” Former NYT Journalist Bari Weiss Slams Tyrannical US Public Health Response to COVID-19 – This Period Will Be “Remembered as a Catastrophic MORAL CRIME” – (VIDEO) The hysterics surrounding this virus are “ridiculous at this point,” she concludes.
Vaccinated athletes perform worse than controls. I am a co-author on this peer-reviewed article, just published. Sports coaches had commented to us that vaccinated student athletes were all performing worse. So we investigated.
Comment at bottom of this article: “I predict murders, not just indictments. I just read this article and there are both parents and students who, when we get the information on clinical trials, will see this as an intentional risking of their children’s lives and futures and will want retribution. Some will lose their children to death and will believe they have nothing left to lose, nothing to live for. They will want vengeance before they die.”
What happened in UK, Ireland? … Why are they tripping over themselves to end mandates this week? Is something about to be made known about the vaccines that will shock the world as to the lethality of the vaccines? [It’s a good question to ask. Why did Pfizer pull back? Berenson has some of the answer in this article: Boosters are over. In the article he says that Big Pharma and WHO recognize that the ‘vaccines’ are not effective.]
Florida Man With Ties to China Sentenced for Falsifying Clinical Trials of Diabetes Drug. [This can be viewed as evidence of China’s asymmetric warfare against the U.S. This could also apply to Pfizer’s clinical trial fraud.]
In the 1970s, an economic historian named Carlo Cipolla wrote a provocative article titled The Basic Laws of Human Stupidity in which he said “Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid individuals. In particular non-stupid people constantly forget that at all times and places and under any circumstances to deal and/or associate with stupid people always turns out to be a costly mistake.” This is evident in the degree of stupidity of people who were whipped into mass hysteria over an unremarkable respirator disease and then scapegoated the unvaccinated.
A message from Roman Baber, Member of Provincial Parliament in Ontario: “. . . we have reason to be hopeful as several jurisdictions around the world are coming to the conclusion that we must live with Covid. Please continue to share my social media messaging and do not be afraid to speak out about the harms of lockdowns, passports, and mandates. For two years, Ontario’s pandemic response wreaked havoc on Ontarians. But more people are changing their minds and the narrative may soon come to an end.”
A comment by Alex Berenson: “the true story of 2020 and 2021 is a story of massive government failure across the United States and Europe. Every control measure the public health authorities promised would control the spread of the coronavirus – from masks to lockdowns to school closures – failed.
“The failure did not occur because citizens didn’t cooperate. They did, in a way that would have been unthinkable a few years before (and is frankly scary for those of us who believe civil liberties are the foundation of civil society).
“The failure occurred because the effort to eradicate a respiratory virus that posed little danger to most healthy people was folly from the start – a folly that came at massive human, economic, and societal cost. Now that failure has spread to the Covid vaccines too.
“The failure is now too obvious to be argued, much less hidden, which is why Britain just said it would drop essentially all Covid restrictions. Other countries will follow, probably as soon as the Omicron wave breaks.
“For progressives, the failure is both humiliating and dangerous. Just over a year after Joe Biden’s election, it is provoking a major conservative realignment in the United States. The consequences are likely to last at least through 2024, perhaps much longer.”
Twitter bans journalist who covered anti-mandate protests. Twitter suspended the account of independent journalist Leeroy Johnson without explanation. Johnson covers happenings and protests all over the country. Recently, he had been covering posting anti-vaccine mandate protests in New York . . . “This is crazy. I don’t even give an opinion when I post. I just shot (sic) and give a description,” Johnson explained.
Avoidable Tragedy: Scott Quiner Dies Due To Maltreatment At Mercy Hospital. [This story got a lot of press in the U.S. and attracted controversy because Quiner didn’t take the mRNA shots. He was denied alternative medical treatments, including Ivermectin, so his family requested he be moved. He was moved to another hospital but it was too late and he died]
