“What luck for the rulers that men do not think.”
- Adolf Hitler.
It's often been said that, by the time tyranny sets upon a nation, its people are literally begging for it. And so it goes in Australia. Even though the country's North Korea-style approach to influenza prevention is causing a national mental health crisis, many Australians want even harsher restrictions.
QR check-ins, face masks, border restrictions, lockdowns, international travel bans, mass-vaccination - for every Australian that is sick and tired of this draconian idiocy, it seems there are 5 more calling for the government to double down even harder.
And the degenerates that run Australia are only too happy to oblige. The latest news from the former penal colony is that, from 6pm tonight, South Australia will go into another lockdown because of a COVID "outbreak."
What constitutes an "outbreak" in South Australia? It's when five (5) people among the state's 1.77 million residents are diagnosed with the featherweight Delta strain. The Delta variant has a case fatality rate of only 0.3%, but that doesn't matter; career bullshitters Premier Steven Marshall and Chief Health Officer Nicola Spurrier simply tell the media the state is a "tinderbox" facing a potential "catastrophe." This highly emotive nonsense is not backed by a shred of scientific evidence, but the simpletons of South Australia believe them anyway. The sheeple don their face nappies, compliantly QR scan as they enter shops, and call for even harsher international travel restrictions and mandatory vaccinations.
And as if all this absurdity isn't enough, a South Australian MP by the name of Frank Pangallo (pictured above) has decided to throw his hat into the looney ring. Over the weekend, Pangallo loudly called for mandatory injection with the new COVID 'vaccines.' Those who refuse to get injected, says Pangallo, should be forever locked inside their houses!
Pangallo said COVID-19 'vaccination' should be mandatory for workplaces, travel and when visiting public or hospitality venues.
Those who refused would be banned from leaving their home. He said those who had been 'vaccinated' should carry a “vaxport” – proof they have been given the jab.
"I understand people will think this is a rather drastic and draconian step, but this pandemic continues to evolve in ways and waves nobody can predict."
Pangallo said Australia was "on the cusp of a health and economic catastrophe" [he's clearly a graduate of the Spurrier/Marshall School of Egregious Bullshit] that called for strong and decisive leadership [tyranny] to prevent a gridlock of constant lockdowns [which aren't needed in the first instance because COVID-19 has an infection fatality rate of only 0.15%].
This is crazy talk. It's the kind of insane ranting I'd fully expect from Dan Andrews, but to hear it from Pangallo was a true shock. Before entering politics, Pangallo built his reputation as a journalist who doggedly pursued shonks and scammers. For years he reported for Today Tonight, one of the few current affairs shows that had the balls to address the rampant corruption within South Australia Police (TT quickly earned the disdain of autocratic SAPOL commissioner Grant Stevens, a sure sign it was hitting a raw nerve). When Pangallo moved into politics, he naturally positioned himself as a corruption fighter and champion of the underdog.
Which makes it especially disappointing to see him aggressively embrace the biggest scam the world has ever known, and to publicly advocate for mandatory administration of dangerous drugs.
I'm not sure what caused Pangallo to leap over to the dark side, so yesterday I sent him an email asking if he could supply me with the scientific data supporting his psychotic new stance. The email is reprinted in its entirety below.
Subject: Request for scientific data backing your call for mandatory vaccination
Mon 19/07/2021 11:27 AM
I don't often write to politicians, so excuse me if this letter doesn't follow the conventions you pollies normally adhere to.
Now, I'd like to ask you something.
Have you lost the plot?
I mean, seriously?
Before entering politics, you made your name as a gutsy foot-in-the-door journalist exposing scammers. Sadly, and inexplicably, you have now decided to embrace the biggest scam the world has ever known, the megalomaniacal farce that is COVID-19.
You are now supporting the psychotic concept of mandatory 'vaccination.' You are vocally calling for the state to override people's sovereignty over their own bodies, and subject them to mandatory injections containing experimental gene therapies.
When did you decide to embrace the sickening concept of medical rape?
What next? Forced sterilizations on 'undesirables'? Mandatory bariatric surgery for overweight people? Locking smokers in cigarette-free 'medi-hotels'?
While we're at it, why don't we confiscate everyone's cars and declare a traffic lockdown?
After all, heart disease, lung cancer and road accidents each kill far more people every day than COVID-19 could ever dream of.
Remember Rocco the dodgey furniture removalist from Salisbury? How many Today Tonight segments did you devote to him, Frank?
Well let me ask you this: Has Rocco the shonky removalist racked up $1.8 billion in penalties since 1999?
Well guess what? AstraZeneca sure has. Since its formation in 1999, AstraZeneca has been hit with over $1.8 billion in fines for dishonesty offences, including fraud, illegal marketing, false and misleading advertising, rorting Medicare/Medicaid, and sexual harassment and discrimination. The company is an unabashed serial corporate felon.
And Pfizer? Between 2002 and 2010 alone, the US-based conglomerate racked up $3 billion in criminal convictions, civil penalties and jury awards. The charges included cost report fraud, payment of kickbacks to physicians, fraudulent billing, and fraudulent marketing practices.
In 2012, US authorities charged Pfizer (and its subsidiary Wyeth) with paying millions of dollars in bribes to officials, doctors and healthcare professionals in Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Italy, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Serbia during 2001-2007 in violation of the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Pfizer and Wyeth were forced to cough up over $60 million in penalties.
The evidence is undeniable: AstraZeneca and Pfizer are serial corporate criminals.
Yet here you are, the same guy who got into shoving matches with shonky removalists while your producers played the Theme from Rocky, now demanding everyone be forced to 'vaccinate' with experimental drugs made by criminal behemoths. Those who don't go along with this Orwellian plot will be forced to stay inside their houses forever. If they dare venture outside, they will be arrested by SAPOL goons.
Wow, a world where people who just say no to dangerous drugs are immediately branded criminals and assaulted when they dare step outside their house.
Brilliant, Frank. Just bloody brilliant.
Is that really the world you want?
If so, make no mistake: You are a psychopath.
And all this, for what?
A virus that has killed a mere 912 of 26,000,000 people in Australia to date?
Do you understand the average age of those individuals was 86 years, Frank?
And that there has not been a single death in the under 50 age group?**
I didn't make that up, Frank, it's right there on the Australian Government website:
See: https://www.health.gov.au/resources/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-at-a-glance-15-july-2021 and https://www.health.gov.au/sites/default/files/documents/2021/07/coronavirus-covid-19-at-a-glance-15-july-2021_0.pdf
Do you know the average life expectancy here in Australia, Frank?
United Nations Population Division data puts the estimated Australian life expectancy at 83.94 years, while OECD data cites a life expectancy of 82.8 years.
In other words, people dying with COVID in Australia are living 2-3 years longer than average.
Well, hey, that justifies a marked increase in anxiety, depression and suicidal behaviour among children, teens and young adults, doesn't it?
Let's sacrifice our future generations for a virus that is allowing elderly people to live past the national average life expectancy! Yeah, that makes sense!
What a sick, disgusting joke.
But that's hardly the end of it. Most of these people allegedly died with COVID, not necessarily from COVID. You see, most of these people had multiple preexisting health conditions and were nursing home residents.
You know why you get sent to a nursing home, Frank?
It's not because you're a healthy Adonis with 50 years of life left, Frank. It's because your health has deteriorated to the point where you can no longer look after yourself. You have become frail to the point you need professional assistance to perform basic daily functions.
Let's face it Frank, when you need help going to the toilet, you don't have long left.
And not only were most of these people in the final chapter of life, but their alleged COVID-19 infection was determined by PCR testing.
The PCR testing caper, to be kind, is a farce. Repeated studies show that once the Ct count used in PCR testing exceeds 35, it produces a false positive rate of over 90%.
Citing the Jaafar et al study, Lisbon court of Appeal recently concluded “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 <3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97%.”
A study by Bullard et al found confirmed COVID-19 infection was only observed with a Ct of 24 or less, and a symptom-onset-to-test time of under 8 days.
Even the inventor of PCR testing, Kary Mullis, warned that it was not suitable for diagnosing active infection.
Yet here in Australia, the government's Public Health Laboratory Network recommends 35-45 cycle thresholds.
Meanwhile, a report prepared by the Doherty Institute for the Therapeutic Goods Administration and the so-called Office of Health Protection discusses "Post-market validation of the Beijing Genomics Institute (BGI) SARS-CoV-2 Real Time PCR platform."
Great to see Australia using a medical test produced by our main geopolitical threat, a communist regime that has described Australia as "gum stuck to China's shoe."
That's real smart, isn't it?
When discussing the test, the Doherty brains trust says desirable 'best practice' is to retest positive results with Ct counts over 38-40. But we know from controlled studies that by the time a Ct count has reached 35, most of the results are false positives anyway.
You see how easy it is to manipulate the testing to produce a steady stream of positive 'cases'? The government and media need those steady stream of cases, because very few people are genuinely dying of COVID. Hysterical reporting of new 'cases' provides the alarmist fodder needed to keep the sheeple of Australia scared and cowering.
On top of all this, doctors are allowed to sign “probable” or “suspected” COVID-19 as the cause of death, even though its symptoms are almost identical to that of regular influenza and pneumonia!
What this all means Frank, is that when we hear someone has died with COVID-19, not only does it not necessarily mean they died of COVID-19, there is a chance they didn't even have COVID-19!
As of 15 July 2021, according to the federal government, more than 22,388,500 tests have been conducted nationally. Of those tests conducted, 0.1% have been positive.
Not 1.0%, Frank, but zero point one percent.
And that's despite the greatly inflated false positive rate conferred by PCR testing with Ct counts as high as 45!
In case you're not getting it, Frank: This whole COVID-19 campaign is a monumental swindle.
But I'm not finished yet, Frank. There's more.
Let's pretend PCR tests aren't the bad joke they are.
Do you know what the average fatality rate of COVID-19 is, Frank?
It is ...
DRUM ROLL PLEASE
Not 1.5%, but zero point one five percent, Frank.*
Yep, that's the global average death rate from COVID-19.
That figure comes, not from the media-whores that operate SA's health bureaucracy, but from the highly-respected Dr. John Ioannidis (Professor of Medicine, Health Research and Policy, and of Biomedical Data Science at Stanford University School of Medicine).
After scrutinizing studies from around the world, he concluded the best estimate average global infection fatality rate for COVID-19 is around 0.15%.
In Europe and the Americas, the likely IFR is around 0.3-0.4%. When institutionalized people are omitted and the analysis confined to community-dwelling folks, the IFR estimate for those regions is ~0.2%.
This is not the Spanish Flu, Frank.
Now, if you are like many Australians, your brain is struggling frantically to comprehend those figures. After all, the average Australian has been so heavily bombarded with hysterical bullshit, and so utterly incapable of independent thought, that he thinks the Delta variant confers a 38% death rate.
In reality, the Delta variant is a non-issue.
Even the UK Government's own data shows the Case Fatality Rate (I repeat, case fatality rate) of the Delta variant is ...
DRUM ROLL PLEASE
Remember, that's the case fatality rate, which is always much higher than the overall infection fatality rate, because CFR only involves cases serious enough to warrant medical attention; IFR encompasses all infected people, including those who are asymptomatic.
Once again, I didn't get this from some whack-a-doodle-doo website that claims shape-shifting aliens run the world, but from the UK Government's own website:
Also Frank, do you know anything about the so-called COVID-19 'vaccines'? Judging from your incredibly misguided comments, I guess not.
Well, the first thing you should know is that they are not vaccines. A vaccine is an inoculation comprised of a dead or weakened form of whatever pathogen you are trying to protect yourself from. None of the experimental drugs you demand to be forced upon us fall into this category.
The AstraZeneca "clot shot" is a chimpanzee adenovirus mated with the code for the COVID-19 S-protein.
Meanwhile, the Pfizer drug is based on long-problematic mRNA technology. This technology is so dangerous it has repeatedly failed to make it to even Phase 3 clinical testing, despite the dogged efforts of aggressively entrepreneurial companies like Moderna.
But now it is being foist onto an unsuspecting world under the guise of "emergency use" in response to a global ‘pandemic’ (you know, the one that kills 0.15% of sufferers and strikes down mostly old people who have already lived past the national life expectancy).
The mRNA drugs could not be any further from a traditional vaccine if their makers tried. They contain messenger RNA encoded with the instructions for the COVID-19 S-protein. Given we still don't know where the COVID-19 virus really came from, and that any sensible person would baulk at the idea of letting a criminal cartel insert genetic instructions into their cells, I'll give that insanity a very wide berth also.
As you can see, calling people who oppose these drugs "anti-vaxxers" is the height of stupidity, because these people are not opposing vaccines, they are opposing experimental gene therapies (and yes, RNA is part of your genetic machinery).
Also Frank, are you aware the vaccines have not been proven effective under true double-blind conditions, and are proving to be extremely dangerous?
The only study that appears to have been conducted under genuinely double-blind conditions was the South African arm of the Oxford-AstraZeneca trials, and it failed to find any efficacy for the 'vaccine.'
And even if we take the other criminal-conducted trials at face value, the 67-95% efficacy figures are a brazen lie. The real absolute protection figures are as follows:
- 1·3% for the AstraZeneca–Oxford drug;
- 1·2% for the Moderna–NIH mRNA drug;
- 1·2% for J&J;
- 0·93% for Gamaleya;
- 0·84% for the Pfizer–BioNTech mRNA drug.
And you want people who refuse to take this dubious junk to be forever locked inside their houses?
R U OK, Frank?
Not only are they ineffective, the vaccines seem to make people more susceptible to death from COVID-19. Well, at least the Delta variant. Again, I don't make this stuff up, Frank, it's right there on the UK Government website. Of 117 deaths in people with the Delta variant as of 25 June 2021, 70 were in those who received one or two 'vaccine' shots.
And then there's the wee little fact that these so-called 'vaccines' are rapidly amassing a frightening death toll.
As of 7 July 2021, the CDC VAERS database has received 5,378 reports of death after administration of COVID-19 'vaccines.'
Please don't tell me there is no causal link and that this is all just a coincidence. During the 2018-2019 flu season, 169.1 million doses of influenza vaccines were distributed throughout the US. VAERS received just 22 death reports for these vaccines.
The corresponding figure for the 2019-2020 season was 174.5 million, and 17 death reports.
That's some coincidence, huh Frank?
Here in transparency-hating Australia, the TGA is doing its best to withhold vaccine death figures from the public. Its most recent 15 July 2021 safety update mysteriously omits any mention of the vaccine death tally.
However, in its 8 July 2021 update, buried in the text, one can find the admission that 355 deaths have occurred in Australia among people who recently received the COVID 'vaccines'.
This is most troubling, because most adverse events are never reported. Even a CDC study estimated only 13% of adverse reactions to influenza vaccines ever find their way on to the VAERS database.
Here in Australia, where doctors are being threatened with deregistration if they dare say anything negative about these 'vaccines', there is little to reason to expect things are any different.
This means the true Australian death rate associated with COVID-19 vaccines is in all likelihood far higher than that of deaths associated with COVID-19 itself.
I repeat: All available evidence points to the COVID charade being a monumental fraud. I fully understand why career bureaucrats have embraced this fraud - it provides endless opportunities for both financial enrichment and greatly enhanced power over the population. Anyone who can see beyond Australia's numerous bread-and-circus distractions (debt-fuelled consumerism, substance abuse, trashy TV shows, hook-up culture, homoerotic ball sports, etc, etc) knows Australia has long been engaged in a steady march towards a dystopian police state, and that the COVID sham has allowed Federal and state governments to greatly accelerate this agenda.
But I'm genuinely puzzled at why someone like yourself has embraced this sham, Frank. You positioned yourself as anti-scammer during your reporter years, and as anti-corruption in politics.
Yet here you are, proposing extremely dystopian measures in the name of the biggest farce ever foisted upon humanity.
So could you please forward to me, by 5PM on this day (Monday, 19 July 2021), the scientific evidence you believe supports your totalitarian stance on COVID-19 and mandatory 'vaccination'.
While this may seem like a short deadline, I trust you have already examined all the scientific evidence supporting your stance, given the bold and confident nature of your public proclamations. It should therefore be of little difficulty for you to forward this evidence to me in short order.
In the interests of transparency, and due to the timely nature of this issue, I intend to publish this email at my website, AnthonyColpo.com, by tomorrow. Any reply received by you will also be published.
Please note I am not interested in PR-style drivel, vague references to 'expert advice' that fail to divulge the actual science behind said advice, or threats of legal action. I remind you that this is bonafide political communication and hence exempt from defamation claims as per Lange v Australian Broadcasting Corporation (1997) 189 CLR 520.
As I have taken the time to link to various full text scientific articles backing my contentions, I would appreciate you show me the same courtesy.
I'll make one further request before I close off.
If you can't find it within yourself to abandon this bizarre mandatory 'vaccine' charade, then I suggest you hand in your Italian card.
My mother, who grew up in the abject poverty of Mussolini-era Italy, has told me about life under fascism. It wasn't nice.
My dearly beloved Nonno, with the help of quick-thinking priests, narrowly escaped almost-certain death at the hands of Nazi soldiers on two occasions.
But here you are, the descendant of Italian migrants who likely grew up in the same era, actively calling for Nazi-like medical interventions on behalf of the state.
The only 'novel' vaccine we really need is one to eradicate stupidity and gullibility. Because in a country where people believe a largely harmless COVID variant in fact confers a 38% death rate, the real pandemic is a frighteningly pervasive lack of critical thinking skills.
I eagerly await your prompt, science-backed reply.
*Typo in original ("zero point one percent") corrected to "zero point one five percent."
**There have actually been five deaths in the <50 group. The death rate in this demographic is so low that it appears to be zero in the federal government’s infographic. Subsequent scrutiny of an enlarged graph revealed five (5) deaths attributed to COVID-19 in those aged 20-49. There have been no deaths in children or teenagers.
Original mistakenly referred to Pfizer as German; the company is headquartered in New York.
Addendum: It is now over 24 hours after the original deadline, and I have not heard a thing from Pangallo aside from a standard format acknowledgement-of-receipt email. I will notify readers of any response received by Pangallo, but don't hold your breath: Australian politicians are big on bullshit and very short on facts.
