As predicted the experimental vaccines is causing unnecessary deaths. There are plenty of cheap and workable treatments, even preventive treatments such as Vitamin D, Zinc, Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin. After all the governments everywhere are so concerned about old people but they are quite happy to let them die by injecting them with experimental vaccines for which the companies producing them are exempt from all liabilities.

The risks with this vaccine are so high, it is foolish for any healthy or young person to take it since there chance of dying from Covid is less than 0.1% and for older age groups only slightly higher. So why give it to elderly people whose immune systems are already deterioating as they reach old age especially when drugs like Hydroxychloroquine when given early make an excellent preventive. The media have never covered the fact that the study published in the medical journal The Lancet which gave Hydroxychloroquine the bad name, used fabricated data and had to be withdrawn and their findings were as fabricated as the data. The media and government still pretend this did not happen.

So is it surprising now to hear of this latest news reported from Norway and is very likely repeating itself all over the world.

The Norwegian Medicines Agency announced today that 23 people died after receiving the experimental Pfizer mRNA COVID injections.

Norway’s health authorities have allegedly changed their recommendations for injecting the elderly, as all 23 deaths were among people older than 80 years old.

“If you are very frail, you should probably not be vaccinated,” Steinar Madsen at the Norwegian Medicines Agency said at a webinar on corona vaccine for journalists on Thursday.

The immune systems of old people do not work as well as when they were younger and when faced with an infection the body frequently overreacts and generates an inflammatory response that does more harm. It is well known among medics that vaccines do not work as well in old people because of a weakening immune system. It is just like most things when you get older, none of your bodily systems work like they used to. This gives context to this story from nursing home in New York read full story / add a comment

This is a podcast from The Daily Wrap Up, a concise show dedicated to bringing you the most relevant independent news, as we see it. In this episode the host covers a recent vaccine trial that took place in India followed quickly by a mystery illness in the same location. In the rest of the podcast there is lots of background information provided by the different vaccine trials and the efforts by the establishment to introduce mandatory vaccines. Missing from the debate so far has been your right to not have to take any form of medicine that would injure you and how all of this impacts your fundamental rights

If you are in doubt about the Covid vaccine, then listen to this podcast and followup by researching each of the topics discussed. read full story / add a comment

Oregon Pediatrician Dr. Paul Thomas from US decided to do a study to compare vaccinated and unvaccinated children to see which group was healthier and unfortunately he got the wrong answer and as a result his medical license was taken away. Here's is a hint. His result did not please the big pharma.

In an effort to combat Big Pharma Corporate Media and Big Tech censorship, doctors around the world are frantically trying to warn the masses of the devastating effects of the experimental COVID vaccines about to be mass injected into the unsuspecting public assisted by military forces around the world.

There is reason to believe the COVID-19 vaccine is dangerous. Only those who who know nothing about the criminal record of vaccine manufacturers or the history of vaccine injuries would agree to accept it into their bodies. Its advocates say it is safe and effective, but they cannot produce scientific confirmation of that. Development of previous versions of this same type of vaccine had to be halted due to adverse reactions, including death, with laboratory animals

Back in September the government announced they were planning to vaccinate up to 750,000 people, mostly children with a new nasal vaccine spray. I suppose a spray seems less dangerous and frightening than a needle. There was a major push this year by the pharmaceutical companies through their lackeys in the government and press to urge people to take it and on back of the constant fear campaign since last March, it seems to have been highly effective. We are supposed to believe that this is all for the benefit of us all and the fact that anyone is making money out of it is just an outrageous thing to suggest. Nor should it be mentioned in polite company that the pharmaceutical companies are NOT liable for any vaccine injuries and you have to take any case you have, against the government. This nice little arrangement has been in place for years and is the envy of all manufacturers of all and anything. read full story / add a comment

In this article from the Off Guardian, Iain Davis investigates the story behind the origins of Covid-19 and shows how it all stands on very flimsy evidence and there is really no credibility left.

COVID 19, and the subsequent governmental responses, appear to be part of an international conspiracy to commit fraud. It seems there is no evidence that a virus called SARS-CoV-2 causes a disease called COVID 19. read full story / add a comment

As was reported earlier this week, the U.K. became the first nation to issue emergency authorization for the Pfizer experimental mRNA COVID vaccine, with jabs expected to start with the public any day now. See: BREAKING! UK First to Approve Pfizer COVID Vaccine as Former Head of Pfizer Research Says Vaccine Can Make Females Infertile

The UK Department of Health and Social Care and the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has just published guidelines for the roll out of Pfizer vaccine.

There is a 10-page document for UK Healthcare Professionals, and a shorter 5-page document for recipients. This is public information (for now), and Health Impact News has secured copies of each.

The Healthy Debate series is now on Episode 3. It is brought to you by the Irish Inquiry who are helping to facilitate a debate about Covid-19 and all related aspects that should be happening on RTE and other main stream outlets but is not.

Episode 1 and 2 have already been widely viewed and very successful. In this episode the discussions turns to the effect of lockdown on Irish businesses. This has huge ramifications for the wider Irish society and economy given that most jobs are in the smaller business sector and many of these are of course Irish businesses. We are looking at a massive wave of closures and businesses going bust and this is already leading to masses of people unemployed. The market share of many of these firms is disappearing upwards towards the global corporations who are doing extremely well in these times as people are switching to shopping online for all sorts of things. read full story / add a comment

Most Western elites are telegraphing the message that we will be forced to cover our humanity with cheap face masks indefinitely. They are mandating that even two-year-olds must wear masks. The long-term effects on the lungs, emotional and behavioral problems, and development of infants and toddlers is enormous. For such an unconstitutional invasion of personal liberty, they are responsible to show us some amazing degree of effectiveness of this cultish ritual. In fact, the data show the opposite. read full story / add a comment
portuguese-court-rules-pcr-tests-as-unreliable-unlawful-to-quarantine-people.jpg

A Portuguese appeals court has ruled that PCR tests are unreliable and that it is unlawful to quarantine people based solely on a PCR test.

The court stated, the test’s reliability depends on the number of cycles used and the viral load present. Citing Jaafar et al. 2020, the court concludes that:

if someone is tested by PCR as positive when a threshold of 35 cycles or higher is used (as is the rule in most laboratories in Europe and the US), the probability that said person is infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97%.

The court further notes that the cycle threshold used for the PCR tests currently being made in Portugal is unknown.

The threshold cycles used in PCR tests in India is between 37 and 40, which makes the reliability of the PCR test less than 3% and the false positive rate as high as 97%.

From the Independent on Sat

A group of GPs and other medical professionals who are calling for an end to lockdown and questioning Nphet's health advice are demanding an urgent meeting with the Government.

A group consisting of mainly GPs - including former Fianna Fáil minister Jim McDaid and the Mater Hospital's infectious disease expert Professor Jack Lambert - has signed a "white paper" questioning what it calls Ireland's "outdated" public health strategies in response to Covid-19. read full story / add a comment

Apparently beating out several competitors that earlier in the year were considered favorites to get the first COVID vaccine to market for distribution in the United States, dark horse favorite Pfizer Inc. seems to be the clear winner, announcing this week that their COVID vaccine is “90% effective,” and that hundreds of millions of doses would be distributed before the end of 2020, pending an FDA emergency use authorization (EUA).

I happen to know a thing or two about masks and safety.

Why? Because for 25 years I was the editor of an award-winning trade magazine called HazMat Management that covered such topics as pollution prevention and compliance with health & safety laws.

We routinely published articles on masks, gloves, respirators and other forms of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Now let me tell you a few things about that mask you’re wearing. read full story / add a comment

Three leading medical journals have refused to publish the results of the first major scientific investigation into the effects of wearing masks on the spread of COVID-19. The authors of the long-awaited “gold-standard” randomised controlled trial have admitted their findings are “controversial” and are keeping them secret until their paper has been peer-reviewed and published. The Danish newspaper Berlingske has the details. read full story / add a comment

In this report written by by Richard Gale and Gary Null PhD of the Progressive Radio Network they discuss the unreported aspects, questions and risks about the many different Covid-19 vaccines that are currently in the works. They present some of the very serious concerns about the technologies of gene based vaccines, voiced by German Professor, Dr Sucharit Bhakdi who held the Microbiology Chair at the University of Mainz in Germany for over 10 years.

If you value your own health and future, it would would be worth your while spending a few minutes reading about what they have to say.

After running into Paul Cullen, health correspondent at the Irish Times on October 3rd during the protest march from Custom House, we had the pleasure to deepen our conversation by way of the following interview.

These are the questions presented to us:

I think your organisation pre-dates the current pandemic. What led you (and others, presumably) to set it up? Was it because of personal experiences and, if so, could you tell me a bit about these?

Ireland and other countries are currently facing repeated waves of Covid-19 infections. Do you think a vaccine, if developed, can play a role in resolving this problem?

Do you have concerns about the Covid-19 vaccines under development? Are these specific to this vaccine or general to all vaccines?

Are there any vaccines you think are useful? (On your website, you make a series of assertions about vaccines which are almost entirely negative.) Would you consider yourself, or your organisation, anti-vaccine?

What are your concerns about the likely introduction of a Covid-19 vaccine? Do you think it will be made mandatory, or that access to, say, creches or schools etc might be barred to people who are not vaccinated? What action would you take in the event of this happening?

Please tell me a bit about HFI: who set it up? who runs it? who sits on the board/council/organising committee? How is it funded?
