  1. Morning all, wind has finally dropped away up here. Apparently it’s going to come up again later on. I’m off to work so I can pay tax which Robbo will give away to the feckless trash that vote for him and the mad queen.

  2. Good morning, surely I am not the first one here this morning? Ah I know its the communistic way of working, not too early as the government will take care of everything///// You all have nothing and be really happy as the supermarket shelves have shown us. Have a good day and be careful out there. The Rona is still out to get New Zealanders, no one else in the world but poor Kiwis. FJA has told us we still need the passport and everything else to divide us. FJA

  3. A most interesting family court case ruling in Canada that is thoroughly considered.
    Should these children be vaccinated? or not as the 2 parents are split in this decision, and can the 2 kids make those choices?

    An incredible court decision regarding Covid-19 vaccines everyone should read.
    Here is how it starts: “When did it become illegal to ask questions? Especially in the courtroom? … ”
    Seriously, a must read even if you just read the first page.

    The full well reasoned decision here.

    https://www.sirillp.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/Ontario-Family-Court-decision.pdf

    The judge does weigh up Pfizer evidence, plus our favorite Doctors, 🙂 were given “standing in that court” with governmental experts just showing claims. from page 14.
    It is 28 pages all up, that shows a lot of thought and reasoning in this outcome.

    Perhaps some of those aspects can be taken up in New Zealand Courts, as this challenges this in a way rules against governmental politics.

    • Good win and well reasoned.
      came out a couple of weeks ago just as the Canadian narrative was under pressure. Cuba’s lost son had to back down.

      My info is that the teachers case was more rigorously challenged by the govt. scientists and its not so hopeful.

        Now we get to see their cards.

        There simply is no case for mandates.

  4. Police Association president Chris Cahill on the threat of Covid for Wellington police officers, what should have been done differently Wednesday night when cars re-entered the site, and how staff are holding up after 17 days of protest. Video / NZ Herald

    Criminals are becoming more brazen after frontline officers were taken off the beat to contain the protest at Parliament and help with the Government’s pandemic response, a police source fears.

    Victims of burglaries are concerned their investigations are being neglected as a result of stretched police resources and residents say they’ve seen a spike in violence and anti-social behaviour as police were diverted to seal Auckland’s border during last year’s lockdown and patrol MIQ facilities.

    Just another wanker in charge.
    Faux concern for the sake of the press.

    Never mind the taxpaying customers that actually need their services.

    I note that in Lismore with all its flooding etc no police are to be found and neither is the army. Much more important things to do chasing covid rainbows.

    How did they become such a disgrace to themselves?

    • Cahill wants to see around 130 officers who were affected by the vaccine mandates to be reinstated immediately, except it isn’t quite that simple. Quite a number of them joined the ferals at Lake Mallard, and were threatened with special treatment if they returned to Patsy Coster’s gang.

    • I’m not a huge fan of the guy (think National made a mistake installing him as leader)
      But to be fair the skyrocketing cost of living is going to become a fucking HUGE issue for New Zealanders in coming months.
      My grocery bill has gone up by about 30-40% over the past year.
      And petrol is fucking astronomical.
      I think National are right to make an issue of this…

      • CO, inflation is beyond the control of our politicians. Its impossible for anyone of them to stop it due to the mass money printing. Plus most of our inflation is globally driven, next to zero of it is generated here except for minimum wage and stupid holidays/entitlements that slam businesses.

          Pac n’ Sav potatoes were $1.99 a year ago, now $2.99.

          We have far less money for discretionary spending than before. There are no bus-loads of tourists to take up the slack. I certainly wouldn’t want to be in the hospitality, English-teaching or other tourism-sector-related industry.

      • How are working families going to handle the issues of:
        a) rising essential prices (foodstuffs, petrol and electricity),
        b) rising interest repayments in their mortgages,
        c) the realization that their Auckland home has dropped over $100k from its peak,
        d) the husband or wife being laid off.

        I can see a lot of stress and a growing number of young couples and families considering emigrating to Australia.

        • As a young family we emigrated to Oz under the same sort of circumstances. We eventually came back because we didn’t like Oz. We’re now in a financial position where we are, comparatively speaking, somewhat insulated from the worst effects of Toothy and Grunter’s trashing of the economy. But were we a few years further back in our trajectory I’d be nudging Mrs Leofric and considering the options again. Why wouldn’t any young family?

      • CO. I agree cost of living is important and it should be made an issue but Luxon did not address any of the other issues that voters are hot on right NOW. Freedom, the co-governance BS, 3 waters etc.
        Zero emiisions by 2050 is more important to him as well as telling everyone how wonderful he is. I could not give a stuff about his ego. Looking at his speech you could be forgiven if you thought Luxon and only Luxon will form National policy.

    • I wondered that too rol.
      Truth, innocents are all manipulated & sacrificed in the course of a war.
      It does seem that some want to escalate the war.
      Nor do I trust Putin, but I figure he is more pragmatic.

      It is like a double jeopardy, like causing a nuclear energy malfunction, to activate Europe, into full on NATO.

      If Putin’s forces are bogged down, then he will want to have peace talks.
      If Ukraine is not being supported by the EU & USA then they will also want to negotiate.
      Just what is going on in Donetsk and Luhansk & no water for the Crimea.

      On paper a full out war, with NATO etc., then the Ukraine will win, but at what price?
      Bearing in mind that it will be a global win for the New World Order of Biden, Macron, Boris Johnson, Trudeau, Merkel, (retiring) and the EU. as they have been dabbling there for more than 20 years.
      What ideology will come out of that?

  7. Wisconsin Special Counsel Alleges Massive Misconduct in 2020 Election
    By Steven Kovac
    March 4, 2022 Updated: March 6, 2022
    biggersmaller Print

    Special Counsel Michael Gableman says in a 136-page interim report that he has uncovered numerous instances of alleged lawbreaking in Wisconsin in the 2020 election.

    The former justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court was hired last summer by the Republican Speaker of the State Assembly, Robin Vos, to investigate suspected election fraud during the 2020 presidential election.

    In the report released March 1, Gableman wrote that his investigation uncovered instances of numerous mentally incompetent nursing home residents, non-citizens, and ineligible felons casting votes.

  8. Bayer Executive Says mRNA Vaccines are Gene Therapy
    The video of the October 2021 speech is making rounds on social media again

    A speech made last year by a Bayer executive mentioning that messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines are gene therapy is gaining traction on social media for the second time since it was initially posted online in October 2021.

    Stefan Oelrich, a member of the Board of Management of Bayer and head of the Pharmaceuticals Division, gave a speech at the World Health Summit focused on biotechnological innovation. He said his company is “really taking that leap … in cell and gene therapy.”

    “The proof is in the markets now. Gold is breaking higher alongside oil, meaning currencies are crashing relative to energy and tokenized energy (money). … All other commodities are repricing higher from metals to grains to fertilizers to coffee at levels the world has never seen.

    Embargoes on food exports are coming in fast. If this was Davos’ plan it was a stupid one. Because Putin and Russia hold all the cards to ensure they decide what these commodities will be priced in, not them.”

  11. The videos of refugees fleeing the Ukraine showed many children, women and elderly.

    How different the demographic of these from the refugees from North Africa and Syria. Or am I not seeing the full picture?

    • The Ukraine refugees are the real thing. They’re fleeing death & destruction. Those from North Africa & Syria are economic refugees so it makes sense for the able bodied men to go first to establish a bulkhead in socialist countries where they’ll never have to work & bring their cuzzies in later.

      There’ll be a few exceptions but the explanation is a lot closer to reality than the bleeding hearts & globalists would like us to believe.

    • I wonder how the issue of international students becoming refugees is handled under international law? Normally, a country won’t let international students in unless they have the means to pay for a ticket back to their home country. I guess flights out of the Ukraine are a bit messed up at the moment.

      When a war breaks out in Country A, are only citizens allowed to flee to adjacent Country B? I would have thought that any civilian of any nationality could legitimately flee to Country B. It is up to the officials of Country B to hold them for processing and repatriation.

      The Nigerians and other Africans will be rather easy to spot in Poland.

        I have mentioned in the past of having worked with a former 28th Battalion veteran who kept me amused with his war yarns. He was captured in Italy and ended up in a German POW camp in Poland.
        As far as Maori go, he was a pretty dark skinned one and had the nick name of ‘N,,,,,,r’. As there was no way he could blend in with the local population if he escaped, he was given unsupervised perk jobs outside the camp like delivering mail. There was a local sugar beet factory that he had access to while performing his perk jobs and having a natural tendency to purloin stuff, used sugar as currency for favours with the town woman. Like your earlier, comment, the town had no local men of fighting age.

          I can recall discussions with WW2 veterans who held that the main reason the Germans lost their campaign in the Mediterranean was that the Maori of the 28th Battalion had had stolen everything that they had left to fight with. 🙂

              You have to understand the distances travelled and the equipment loses were fairly big. No point in rolling up walking when you could use a greman car or truck and if you lost your rifle grab a dead fells one regardless of the make. It was after all a nasty war and anything that gave them an advantage they took it. going after the enemy without a gun tended to be fatal and supply lines were long for both sides. supplies dumps were bombed or isolated.
              Plenty written about those things.

        • While reminiscing about my old workmate with the dark complexion..another quick yarn.

          While in Italy, and obviously before his capture, a cousin in the Battalion who was quite a high ranking officer, had my mate drive him over to a meeting with other commanders. While he was parked up outside the meeting he noticed the Negro driver for an American officer waiting beside his jeep. My mate said that he had never seen a negro in person before and wandered over to talk to him.

          As he walked up to the other driver, he said to him, “I ‘spose they call you Midnight”. The American replied, “and you’re about 11.45 yourself”.

      Good to learn how the devious government plays their hands and how we can counter that.
      I saw some where else where some dubious character was simply zoomed to on their legs for identifying tattoos 🙂

      It seems that there is more to come out,
      The real issue is that no one in Parliament will carry this into Parliament, and or to get this exposed in the media.
      Hopefully identified and charges or privately done are pursued.

    • To clarify: The first bloke (the unmasked one) has since been identified as a bystander. The two masked pyromaniacs still need to be outed.

      Also: The sound on the clip clearly shows that throwing things at police was not acceptable by the protestors.
      I suggest that had police not presented them with a greater threat, protestors would have quelled that action and even turned perpetrators over for prosecution if necessary. They had done that before.
      Coster’s gang escalated the violence without doubt.

              Of course they couldn’t decide what it meant so shoved the politicians aside and claimed the death threat as their own so they wouldn’t be upstaged.

              The Nuremberg Court, gathered evidence, facts, listened to witnesses, which could all be challenged by the defendants.
              The defendants could also speak out in their defence and had defence lawyers.

              After that the Judges took some time, to contemplate, consider things before finding guilty or not.
              Then further time and discussion before sentencing was pronounced.
              Not all were hanged, and many spent time in jail.

              That is the what the current “THEY” do not want shown or exposed, fact, reports, evidence, and just what did they based their decisions on?s
              All part of their cover up, so as not be held to account.

    PM Jacinda Ardern denies Government spending wasteful, pushes back on claim NZ in cost of living crisis

    While the Prime Minister acknowledged it was a tough time for many Kiwis, she stopped short of calling it a crisis.

    “I wouldn’t describe it that way, there is an impact that people are feeling undeniably but I wouldn’t describe it in that way,” Ardern told AM.

    It comes as the cost of living skyrockets with Kiwis spending on average an extra $4000 and $5000 in the past 12 months on basics such as food, rent and fuel. The majority of the increase is fuel with an extra $678 a year at the pump on average.

    Israel’s mass vaccination campaign has already been a massive failure in multiple ways.

    Israel’s Vaccination Program Is Failing: 6 Month High In New Cases

    We know they are lying and we know this vaccine is a part of the agenda or they would not be pushing it to this extent.

      New Zealand Covid Minister To Chase Down The Unvaccinated

      The number of text messages from DHB’s, as well as from Medical Centres, as well as the number of phone call to your number inquiring about your vax status.
      Any path with a Doctor, nurse, chemist, became challenging and needling.
      Government Departments, Organisations, Corporations, Clubs, Federations, Unions all charged in on the pursuit of the Un-vaccinated.

    The greenies want to get rid of our 6 million dairy cows because methane, yada yada. But if there were still 60 million bison roaming the plains of North America, would the greenies want to get rid of them too, because methane, yada yada?

  16. 🚍 DC area bracing for trucker convoy protests as nearly 1,000 vehicles hit Maryland town

    Long lines of 18-wheelers and other trucks crowded the roads of Hagerstown, Maryland early Saturday as the Washington, DC-area prepared for protests over COVID-19 mandates.

    While other similar US trucker convoys have fizzled, this one started gaining steam Friday evening. Roughly 1,000 vehicles arriving from all directions converged on the Hagerstown Speedway, clogging traffic, the Washington Post reported.

    As of 8 p.m., a two-mile-long line of cars and trucks could be seen stuck in traffic on Route 40, WUSA-9 TV reported.

    Some truckers participating in the “People’s Convoy” said they planned to head to Interstate 495, known as the Capital Beltway, on Saturday. Others said they were awaiting instructions.

    • Sooty…you will probably find that the majority using this ruse don’t have a job, but there are other things to be gained from it, like getting you out of an over crowded rundown state rental or the car that you’ve been living in and into a motel with free food for 10 days. That is the behaviour of a lot of the homeless (quite a few being PI’s), but you would be surprised by the number of Indians and Chinese who are just after the tax payer sponsored food. Would love to say more.

  17. Latest from ACT. Cant wait for the R C O I.

    It may be too early to say New Zealand’s Omicron wave has peaked, but not by much. Sure, daily case numbers are a measure of testing as much as anything, and we shouldn’t take them so seriously. But, for what it’s worth, we are now at about 4,000 cases per day per million people.
    The Australians had a week at that level before tested cases declined. On that basis we may be a week away from the Omicron tide subsiding. Then what?

    Even Labour who cannot imagine Governing without COVID controls are promising to start removing them when the wave peaks. We may get back to normal faster than Jacinda can get a face-saving letter from Sir David Skegg, as she did for the border opening.
    Let’s imagine for a moment that Labour really can let go of COVID control. Then there will be the inevitable (and long overdue) Royal Commission of Inquiry. If it’s any good it will find a clumsy Government response has been saved by oceans of debt, the literal oceans that kept the virus out, and massive sacrifice by a compliant population.
    It will find that any task the Government could actually influence, from testing to tracing to vaccinating to making transparent, commonsense rules were disastrous. Competent execution is (or should be) the easy bit.

    Of course the Government should have established a Taiwan-style Epidemic Response Unit that brought together more expertise than the Ministry of Health could ever muster. It should have worked with, instead of against, business. It should have embraced technology for testing and tracing instead of the-Ministry-of-Health-always-knows-best.
    It should have co-created rules with each sector and had more human vaccine policies. ACT’s already said all that.
    The big questions are about the strategy itself. Government should have had a more balanced approach to different needs. The strategy should have balanced COVID-19 with all of the other challenges New Zealanders face. That’s the hard bit.

    At some point a riddle will have to be answered: Why did so many countries with very different cultures and political systems all sacrifice so much more to save a life from COVID than they ever would for anything else? We don’t fix every dangerous corner, we don’t fund every cancer drug, and we don’t ban motorbikes (even though they’re very dangerous and have gotten more so this century).
    We often accept people dying because saving a life would take resources away from other things, including saving lives in other ways. If that sounds tough, it’s a perfectly normal way of thinking for people who work at Pharmac, or the Ministry of Transport for example.
    If we’d been like the U.S we would have had 12,500 extra deaths over the COVID period. Like the U.K, 10,000 extra deaths. Like Sweden, 5,000. Those figures sound bad, but they need some more context. 30,000 people die in New Zealand in a normal year, so we would have expected 60,000 deaths in New Zealand over the last two years if COVID never existed.

    Then there’s the age. Policy makers talk about QALYs, or Quality Adjusted Life Years. The death of a 90 year old is very sad, but the death of a 9 year old is an heart wrenching tragedy. The mean age of those who died from COVID in England and Wales was 80, life expectancy there is 81.
    It’s easy to read too much into these statistics, we shouldn’t conclude that New Zealand’s COVID response (so far) has allowed 10,000 people to live one year longer. No doubt it’s more complicated than that.

    But at some point we’re going to have to ask and answer the question: Were the years of life saved from COVID worth shutting down the country, putting a generation out of the classroom and into enormous debt? Had we known all this at the start, would we have made different decisions? Probably not this time. Practically every country, culture, and political system acted the same way, just to different extents. Even Sweden had more stringent restrictions than New Zealand for large parts of the past two years. But we can’t afford to make the same mistake next time.

    There will be another pandemic in our lifetime, perhaps within this decade. It’s unlikely, but possible, that there will be a worse variant of COVID. Some people say COVID was a one-in-one-hundred year occurrence. Bird flu, swine flu, zika virus, ebola, if you think about it there is something like it every few years, COVID was just the one that got out of hand due to its particular characteristic.

    We’ll need answers about key questions. How do we deal with uncertainty in the early stages of a pandemic? How (if) we use our strategic advantage of isolation, such as closing the border temporarily to get a better picture? What cost benefit analysis we apply to saving lives from an epidemic as that picture clears? Should the analysis applied to pandemics be different from other decisions?
    If Omicron really is peaking, and it is the last significant variant before COVID becomes another endemic flu-like virus, then we’ll need to turn our minds to how we deal with the next one while we’re still paying for this one.

      If he can get any reasonable source or number of sources, so it is then beyond the smoke gossip stage, then the fire, when opened will have a ferocious blow back. 🙂

      The timing for an Arkanicide is narrowing.

      There would be many photos of social events that Gayford attended, so it would be possible to build up a list of people who regularly associated with him. These people might be able to shed some light on things.

    • Heart attacks becoming more common in men over 40
      Creating the “new normal”

      2 funerals in my area, where for one that was sudden for the 30 year old hard working with family guy, it was genetic and runs in the family.
      Asked the question, what age was the father that died? = 59 years old. Seems like genetics jumps 30 years. 🙁

      The other funeral was for a mother of 40 of a couple of kids, where the plug was pulled, after a week, because of a stroke.
      No raised the question about the vaxx!

      Talked with a couple travelling through town, and mentioned they said they counted out 6 they first hand knew, who had a range of serious injuries, and they knew they were vaxxed.
      One whose lymph nodes totally enlarged painfully to grapefruit size.
      They also were amazed at how the Doctors do not acknowledge anything with vaccine.

      One of their relatives sent home after a week in hospital for what they thought sounded like a serious heart condition , died the 2nd night at home. The hospital wanted more room for those heart cases.

      They like me are still surprised how many others do not make the vaxx connection.

      The next issue is that it will be called a form of “Long Covid side effect” but another vaxx will help prevent that.
      That will be why the New Zealand data collection that is supposed to be monitoring for a phase 3 experimental trial are not only negligent, but now many are complicit with malfeasance.

      Yet the same authorities commit further malfeasance by not allowing any re-purposed and safe medicines to be trialed or used.

          I believe that they will set up & use others as brown shirts, already being partly revealed by good vid clips as became apparent in what showed up at the last day of the protest.
          Hopefully a good collation of the different vids to sort out just what went on the protest.

        Not as a mitigation, but Reti has to decide. Time is more than nigh to make that decision as he will have served nigh on 3 terms.

        Will he step down and remain a Doctor, and keep his licence?
        Or will he step up as an MP, with what he knows, and lose his Doctor’s licence?

        Where is Reti’s point of no return? No looking back! or just another sucker on the teat. 🙁
        Is he trying to “You can’t have your cake and eat it (too)?”

        So get out of the way!

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/auckland-cbd-shooting-teenager-in-court-after-three-injured/L5AJ6RB3WWWTVQYATVS6NQRYCA/
    “A teenager who allegedly shot three people in Auckland’s CBD in the early hours of Saturday – including radio host Jay-Jay Feeney’s brother Poull Andersen – has appeared in court.”

    It’s as if this shooter just opened up on the one man and two women at random with a shotgun. Why would an 18-year-old do that to people he didn’t know, in such a public location?
    – Mentally ill? (Where did he get the shotgun?)
    – A gang prospect?
    – What was the ethnicity of the shooter? (Was it a hate crime?)
    – Is the shooter known to the police and youth-and-family?

    So many questions the journalists will not ask.

  21. From the court case on Health workers and Teacher mandates
    “Jones said GPs might not be dealing with the most acute cases but had a range of people coming into the surgeries where many may be old or vulnerable. There was also the need to have the health sector as resilient as possible during a pandemic.
    There were three justifications for teachers, he said. Protection of the children themselves, the risk of transmission from the schools into the wider community and the general spread which could affect the ability of the educational institutes to function.
    Jones said Rapid Antigen Tests(or RATs) detected but did not protect. Even if staff were testing, there was no guarantee the virus would not be brought into schools.
    The mandate was even more justified during the Omicron outbreak with more vulnerable exposed, he said.
    The hearing is continuing.”

    • The Ministry of Health is committing a malfeasance in that it’s data is not more complete, as it should it be more fully monitored as this government signed up the citizens to a Phase 3 experimental trial that has 2 codes on how that should be done.

      ….. latest figures showing a large proportion of recent Covid-19 cases are younger people, are not unexpected.
      The Ministry of Health’s statement said today that of the 14,940 Covid-19 cases reported in the past fortnight, 59 percent of have been under 30 years of age, and 12 percent were over 50. …..

      ….. 236 patients with Covid-19 currently in hospital in the Northern region, 19 percent are under 30 and 54 percent are over the age of 50. …..
      ….. people needing hospital treatment are likely to have underlying health conditions or be older. ….

      https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/462393/big-covid-19-case-rise-in-younger-groups-not-surprising-epidemiologist

      Sure the older may be more weak & frail, but does the vaxx stuff up what reasonable health they may have left? That will aggravate any other weak link in their health.
      Reports I have seen where co-morbidities were under control have flared back after the vaxx.
      Though anecdotal it seems that an elder independent person is too often, debilitated by the vax.

      Now Pfizer has released some earlier trial data, showing remarkably more vaxx injuries across a considerable range of blood, circulatory, lymphatic system, across the brain barrier and then so many differing effects that are a part of the nervous system.

      Then the advise of waiting for the worst of the disease and not taking any pro active action, like Vitamin D, Zinc, Vitamin C, let alone considering in a first and early treatment procedure, like HCQ, quercetin, or Ivermectin following what seems to be well proven hospital protocols.
      Dr. Zelenko did have a remarkable low death rate in the rest home with his protocols, where many caught Covid.

      Death can not be kept at bay forever. Life when you have it is to be enjoyed,
      I have found many old people are very realistic.
      What some people take pleasure in may be different for others.
      Time it self seems to be measured differently, music, memories, etc.. are all at a different value for the old.

    New Zealand Politics

    During an address to parliament, Labour’s Speaker of the House Trevor Mallard revealed that he was the central liaison point for Police in the operation to clear anti-mandate protesters from parliament.

    He also revealed that he was aided in his efforts most of all by Opposition Leader Chris Luxon, and thanked Luxon for his “personal support”. So Luxon was fully engaged with Mallard during the protests, and therefore must have agreed to the brutal police behaviour.

    When do we start wondering about who Luxon really is and what he is doing as leader of the National party? IMHO something very fishy.

    “The 7 day average covid infections in Sweden on the 9th of February was 21 360. Fast forward to the 1st of March, that same number has absolutely plummeted down to 2 402.

    That means the number of covid infections have gone down with a whopping 88.8% in just 20 days since restrictions were removed.

    Let that number sink in.

  29. Here comes the eureka bs.

    Scientists seek to solve mystery of why some people do not catch Covid

    Phoebe Garrett has attended university lectures without catching Covid; she even hosted a party where everyone subsequently tested positive except her. “I think I’ve knowingly been exposed about four times,” the 22-year-old from High Wycombe said.

    In March 2021, she participated in the world’s first Covid-19 challenge trial, which involved dripping live virus into her nose and pegging her nostrils shut for several hours, in a deliberate effort to infect her. Still her body resisted.

  30. Interesting. Bn linked Cam Slater’s latest column where he attacked the MoHealth on the way they were presenting their data in one of the standard graphs.
    Well Cam looked back at their site tonight and finds they have changed it back to way it was –which shows the unvaxxed are significantly lower in the cases/100,000 than the vaxxed. Well done Cam.

    • I still shudder when the local doctor I was consulting told me as being supposedly high risk and so probably needing hospitalization, the only treatment was remdesevir and being put on a ventilator.
      That it may take months in ICU and then HDU before an ordinary ward,
      Saying it could be a long recovery and probably never fully.

      Bit of a worry, and nor did he do a proper Doctoring job.
      Just vaccine vaccine vaccine, drone drone drone, ……
      Another terrorizing man who proved to be no Doctor.

  31. The Health Forum was a group of trained doctors who would speak to the vax injured and assist them when no one else would. Today their fb page has been shut down. Their Telegram page has been shut down.
    There is no health assistance, no ACC, no admission that vax injuries even exist. Nothing.
    Your stroke, your pericarditis, doesn’t exist, imagination, not our problem. sshh!

    • It shows the true viciousness of the systemic medical autocracy, that backs tyranny.

      In some ways I am not surprised, as the system will not really back down, as noted by how they subdued the Wellington Protest.
      This was already demonstrated in banning first and early treatment protocols in a total show of force.
      Like seizure of the RATS tests.

      So we have to become more careful, take stock, as it has become a life & death situation, so it is a war footing and on many fronts,
      Like coming to be “free speech” and where you can even gain information.

      What services you may be able to access, travel, digital control of your banking accounts, etc.. considering rationing of health services, but other services & goods like fuel, smart metered electricity, etc..
