Ohio Judge Orders Man Convicted Of Fentanyl Possession To Get Vaccine Or Face Jail Time

It's just a move from judge mandated joining of one cult to another,once upon a time it was join a 12 step programme or face jail to join the covid cult or face jail ,I think i'd opt for jail possibly better odds at surviving

Covid-19: Expect 'swift and severe' level 4 lockdown if Delta emerges

Covid-19: The three little letters that may lead to a level 4 lockdown - NSW

Luke Malpass05:00, Aug 12 2021

 

Health Minister Chris-[We Will Hunt You Down] Hipkins says any future discovery of the Covid-19 Delta variant will lead to "swift and severe" action, including lockdowns.
 

ANALYSIS: The ominous warning of a quick level 4 lockdown in the event of the Delta strain of coronavirus arriving in New Zealand has clearly been prompted by three little letters: NSW.

 

The long-awaited report by Sir David Skegg and colleagues on how to open up New Zealand was clearly heavily influenced by the Delta variant and the New South Wales experience. The newish strain of Covid-19 has, in the space of less than two months, brought the Australian state to its knees. The Government will respond to the Skegg report today.

 

Covid-19 is now so out of control in NSW that Premier Gladys Berejiklian has admitted that the state won’t eliminate it now. But lockdowns will drag on because not enough of the population is vaccinated to stop hospitals being overrun.

 

It is the thing that, above all, else the Ardern Government wishes to avoid. And its avoidance technique will be drastic action.

* Covid-19: Australian PM, NSW Premier at odds over how to end Sydney outbreak

 

The Delta variant is far more transmissible, results in higher rates of hospitalisation and increasingly affects those under 40 years of age more. Once out in the community it has proven almost impossible to control unless it is picked up very early and a hard lockdown ensues.

 

In the Skegg report, there was an ominous warning: that it is highly likely that even with all of the defences here, New Zealand is likely to have an outbreak “similar to that in NSW over the coming months”.

 

Less than two months ago, NSW was considered the “gold standard” in its response to Covid-19. It hadn’t adopted an official elimination strategy, but the contact tracing and testing system had meant that it had stamped out Covid in the state.

Where there were small flare-ups, or cases that had slipped the managed isolation net, its health machine whirred into action, got on top of the chains of transmission and instituted very localised lockdowns where required.

Then, on June 16 a single limousine driver ferrying people from Sydney airport, tested positive for the Delta strain. The NSW system fired up as it had before – over the ensuing weeks test numbers went up and various low level restrictions came in such as limits on gatherings and mask wearing.

Over the next week or so, the numbers simply increased. Ten days later – by June 26 – the state went into what New Zealanders would consider a light lockdown.

 

Over the weeks since, the lockdown has progressively got tougher. Most people are stuck at home. At the same time numbers have continued to creep up inexorably – with more than 344 recorded yesterday, with 65 infectious in the community. There have now been more than 6000 cases, 62 people are now in intensive care. At the time of writing 34 have died in the latest outbreak.

 

Unlike in New Zealand where outbreaks have been relatively small and the key figures are the numbers of cases and then the number of cases with unknown origin, NSW releases the numbers of case and the number of cases in the community while infectious.

The reason for giving this number is that while there are so many people out and about, the transmission won't stop. Early on, it appeared that it was simply loose rules and poor compliance.

It now appears that people are following the rules but Delta is so transmissible that even with the odd legitimate trip out of the house, the virus has spread. Even testing more than 130,000 people per day, the contact tracing system can't keep pace.

In NSW this has now effectively ended up with the worst of all worlds. Continued extended lockdowns, cases, deaths and Berejiklian all but running up the white flag and admitting the state will just have to learn to live with Covid-19.

 

NSW’s strategy is now to vaccinate as much of the population as quickly as possible and bring in compulsion where needed.

Want to work on construction site in Sydney? You’ll need a jab. Employers will now have the right to find out who in their workforce is vaccinated.

This is the worst-of-all-worlds situation that the Government here wants to avoid.

Once the population is vaccinated – which if our current rate continues will be about mid-January (although it will probably get faster from here) – there will be other options.

The brute politics of Covid-19 are simple: just as Berejiklian and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison have gone from heroes to culprits in two months, no-one will thank our Government, Jacinda Ardern or Chris Hipkins in the event we need a long lockdown while waiting for people to get vaccinated.

The Govt gave NZ Media NZ$50M at the start of the scamdemic and now ANOTHER $55M and they have the cheek to write the above box with their hand out!

 

$105M = £53,329,500

FYI  I dont ignore anything... I make my own determination about it. This is what I mean... you try to force your views and thats not on. 

 

i'm not 'forcing' my views on you anymore than you are 'forcing' your views on me

 

how come when i say what i think i am 'forcing' my views but when you say what you think that is ok?

 

its a public forum and we are all sharing our views. Now not every viewpoint is of equal value. Some contain more truth than others and some are founded upon deeper foundations of information and knowledge than others

 

Example A: ''smart phones are totally healthy and there is no smart grid''

 

v's

 

Example B: ''smart phones are unhealthy in a variety of ways and are part of a smart grid''

 

Example B is objectively more truthful than example A

I said before, I do not use a smart phone insofar as it being connected to me. But phones are useful tools although should be used carefully. So please stop with the presumption that everyones phone is linked to them.

 

Of course they will be linked to you because they have your voice pattern biomettrics

I use speakerphone for my calls...so definitely not attached to my ear. ( Used carefully)

 

and the rest of the time its in your pocket against your body?

I grasp peoples fears re 5G - I also grasp that there may be a connection to the `covid`vax re nano particles etc.  They only know you have a smart phone if you let them know... as I said before...

 

I don't agree with that in the same way that devices like alexa are recording everyones voice pattern biomettrics and feeding it all back to a central source

 

That is the whole point of 'smart' devices: that they send back data to a central source which will be an artificial intelligence that will run the smart-grid

I managed to enter Canada without the app so say required to trace your arrival etc.

 

people who have smart phones are being followed by GPS positioning as well as through their phone constantly pinging nearby cell phone towers

 

On top of that the police are tracking everyones phones using STINGRAY so they know where you are

 

54 minutes ago, Beaujangles said:

This covid agenda is speeding up the situation... and those buying the covid nonsense arent helping.They cannot force (yet) anyone to have one or even tell them they have one. If people volunteer this to authorities thats their stupidity IMO.

 

The authorities know who owns each smart phone regardless of whether or not people download the track and trace app

 

54 minutes ago, Beaujangles said:

I know they are trying to force people to submit to track your own money.... but we arent there yet.  Maybe something will happen to put a spanner in the works...

 

you and millions of others engaging with smart tech is what makes it an inevitability

 

if you refused to do that like i am then it would not be possible and that's the hard truth.

Both Danny Shine and Charlie Veitch are shills imo.

 

Danny Shine is into the depopulation and the climate change narrative afaik, and it's not satire.

 

 

Every. Single. Time

 

 

Whatever he is and whatever he's doing GR, it makes me laugh. If he is subversive he's is doing it from a very oblique angle. I don't take it too seriously. Boris Johnson makes me laugh, the entire country of Australia makes me laugh, Mel Brooks films make me laugh... This whole thing is totally hilarious when you know the reality but watch these 'Leaders' and 'Scientists' spouting total bullshit. This 'pandemic' is the longest build up to a punchline in comedy history...

All I said about you was - that I feel you can be quite pushy with your views and will say `I am right`

 

i am right and just after i started to re-warn people about their smart phones recently the following story broke into the mainstream just on cue to prove me right (see my pirate republic thread to see the news BEFORE its the news):

What is Pegasus? A cybersecurity expert explains how the spyware invades phones and what it does when it gets in

  • By Bhanukiran Gurijala
  • Aug 09, 2021

The ConversationEnd-to-end encryption is technology that scrambles messages on your phone and unscrambles them only on the recipients’ phones, which means anyone who intercepts the messages in between can’t read them. Dropbox, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Twitter and Yahoo are among the companies whose apps and services use end-to-end encryption.

This kind of encryption is good for protecting your privacy, but governments don’t like it because it makes it difficult for them to spy on people, whether tracking criminals and terrorists or, as some governments have been known to do, snooping on dissidents, protesters and journalists. Enter an Israeli technology firm, NSO Group.

 

The company’s flagship product is Pegasus, spyware that can stealthily enter a smartphone and gain access to everything on it, including its camera and microphone. Pegasus is designed to infiltrate devices running Android, Blackberry, iOS and Symbian operating systems and turn them into surveillance devices. The company says it sells Pegasus only to governments and only for the purposes of tracking criminals and terrorists.

How it works

Earlier version of Pegasus were installed on smartphones through vulnerabilities in commonly used apps or by spear-phishing, which involves tricking a targeted user into clicking a link or opening a document that secretly installs the software. It can also be installed over a wireless transceiver located near a target, or manually if an agent can steal the target’s phone.

Since 2019, Pegasus users have been able to install the software on smartphones with a missed call on WhatsApp, and can even delete the record of the missed call, making it impossible for the the phone’s owner to know anything is amiss. Another way is by simply sending a message to a user’s phone that produces no notification.

This means the latest version of this spyware does not require the smartphone user to do anything. All that is required for a successful spyware attack and installation is having a particular vulnerable app or operating system installed on the device. This is known as a zero-click exploit.

Once installed, Pegasus can theoretically harvest any data from the device and transmit it back to the attacker. It can steal photos and videos, recordings, location records, communications, web searches, passwords, call logs and social media posts. It also has the capability to activate cameras and microphones for real-time surveillance without the permission or knowledge of the user.

Who has been using Pegasus and why

NSO Group says it builds Pegasus solely for governments to use in counterterrorism and law enforcement work. The company markets it as a targeted spying tool to track criminals and terrorists and not for mass surveillance. The company does not disclose its clients.

The earliest reported use of Pegasus was by the Mexican government in 2011 to track notorious drug baron Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán. The tool was also reportedly used to track people close to murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

It is unclear who or what types of people are being targeted and why. However, much of the recent reporting about Pegasus centers around a list of 50,000 phone numbers. The list has been attributed to NSO Group, but the list’s origins are unclear. A statement from Amnesty International in Israel stated that the list contains phone numbers that were marked as “of interest” to NSO’s various clients, though it’s not known if any of the phones associated with numbers have actually been tracked.

A media consortium, the Pegasus Project, analyzed the phone numbers on the list and identified over 1,000 people in over 50 countries. The findings included people who appear to fall outside of the NSO Group’s restriction to investigations of criminal and terrorist activity. These include politicians, government workers, journalists, human rights activists, business executives and Arab royal family members.

What David Martin said is great, that every conversation about covid is the wrong one to be having, but, even he said it’s not the Rothschild/Rockefeller, it’s the insurance companies running the show. Interesting because doesn't he think that all these companies are run by the elite families? Maybe he’s covering his back (see how even true information can be corrupted by default, you can’t even say what needs to be said)

 

that is exactly the direction they are taking the internet with the online harms bill and touted digital identities. They want to do what they do with all dissent which is to CONTAIN it into neat easily controlled little corals. They also want to box in what people are saying to prevent them talking about what's really going on, why and who is behind it; trying to talk about the conspiracy in their new world would be like trying to explain what birds are without being able to use the words 'feathers' or 'fly'

they have always been on the forum for as long as i've been here. I've debated with satanists, freemasons, communists, occultists of various kinds and who knows how many military cyberwarfare deskjockeys from who knows how many countries

With regard to 5g, we have been increasing levels of emf quite rapidly in the past century, smart phones, smart meters, from basic internet to 5g, high speed broadband and routers, all these things multiply when you’re around more people or in built up areas.

 

5G smart phones will work differently and the question i want to know is how harmful would the concentrated beams be?

5G Explained: Beamforming & DSS (in Plain English)

 

Here, we answer these two questions:

  1. What is Beamforming?
  2. What is Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) technology?

If you know these terms and their meaning, you’re the minority. Even many tech-savvy folks aren’t familiar with them. You’ll soon be in-the-know after reading this article. 5G is a key player in what our connected lives will look like in the near future.

In the world of 5G, this is the act of focusing a wireless signal in a specific direction. Compared to simply sending a signal across a wide area, beamforming requires more sophisticated antenna technology.

What Does This Mean In Context?

As advanced as cellular technology has become, you and I both know that when you walk into a concrete building or an elevator, your reception will likely plummet or drop completely. Beamforming is designed to fix this issue and provide you with a seamless, uninterrupted cell signal no matter what. Regardless of external conditions (topographical, architectural, geographical, etc.), beamforming aims to eliminate the everyday challenges of service interference.

5G explained 03

3G and 4G LTE signals originate from local cell towers which spread the signal over a wide range. Though we all benefit from this technology on a daily basis, the way these towers disseminate signals makes it hard for them to stay consistent. Beamforming technology, on the other hand, sends a precise and concentrated signal right to your smartphone. It is more deliberate and intentional with its delivery method.

Think of the difference between a floodlight (4G LTE cell towers) and a laser beam (beamforming). That’s a visual image that perfectly describes how it’s different.

This aspect of 5G means faster and more reliable connectivity (especially when the user is in motion) and better overall signal quality. It means almost no interference from other users as well as no wasted signals.

Some Technical Details

Signals can be sent to mobile users via vertical AND horizontal angles because of beamforming tech. This is the main reason why it’s such an integral component of massive MIMO systems (learn more about massive MIMO here).

Now, beamforming is not a brand new technology. In fact, semblances of its modern version have been around since the 1940s. During WWI, some of these techniques were originally rolled out to boost sonar capabilities. But now, this unique tech is integral to the implementation of 5G in large part because of its influence on something called mmWave (millimeter wave spectrum signals). mmWave signals are what primarily make up the cell frequencies we use today. And as you know, they don’t travel through solid objects very well. Even your hand in the right position while holding your phone can obstruct them.

Beamforming makes mmWave signals less vulnerable and more reliable, allowing users to maintain their reception in situations where they’d normally lose it.

Even Though It’s An Incredible Technology, There’s Still Work To Be Done

The implementation of beamforming on a large scale is complicated. It is not without obstacles and challenges. For one, it’s expensive. All the software and hardware necessary for its antenna system is not cheap. It’s also not completely impervious to things like humidity and temperature. Also, signals can be interrupted by physical objects directly surrounding the antenna arrays. All these things are being dealt with in anticipation of a worldwide 5G rollout.

This is why there is no safety studies into 5g, this is why JFK couldn’t get jab manufacturers to deliver the last 30 years of safety studies. Safety studies would prove they are weapons the same.

 

major red flags that the public should be up in arms about if they weren't so distracted and absorbed in their smart phones!

Why has this been deleted?

This was a video about child taken away due to her father's vaccine view.

Is there anyway to contact this person?

 

Another question, how can I find a solicitor who is not pro-vaxx to fight on the Equality grounds?

It kicked off down my doctors again today, seems they definitely dont like me down there & woman claimed I swore at her...doctor was meant to call me for a telephone appointment but never. Then they made some bullshit up saying they wanted me to call them at 8:30am.

Why would they want me to call them to arrange a telephone appointment time??

 

Now my hematoma massive lump ive had for over a year after an accident they claim I have to live with.

 

If I wanted a sex change they would bend over backwards & suck my knob while I wait for the fanny op.

 

Buy a bodycam and press rec button when you feel like it's time to activate it. Job done.

Everybody need a bodycam these days. Sad but that's the state of the situation.

 

So true about sex change.... lol
