Must Watch: Very Powerful & Timely Message Delivered By Member of European Parliament
Arjun Walia, The Pulse, October 31, 2021
Member of the European Parliament Christine Anderson (Germany) delivered a very powerful message at a news conference held in Strasbourg on October 21st called: “Defending fundamental rights by opposing the misuse of Digital Green Certificate.” Below is a clip of her speech that is currently making its way around the internet.
Francesca Donato (Italy, NI), Ivan Vilibor Sinčić (Croatia, NI), and Cristian Terheş (Romania, ECR) were also in attendance, giving voice to the millions of Europeans who oppose vaccine mandates.
The members of the European Parliament took a joint stand in defense of the fundamental rights of all EU citizens, which they say are under threat now due to mandatory vaccination and abusive use of the Digital Covid Certificate.
This is something we are seeing all over the world in countries that have implemented vaccine mandates.
It is not the goal that renders the system oppressive; it is always the methods by which the goal is pursued.Whenever a government claims to have the people’s interest at heart, you need to think again.In the entire history of mankind, there has never been a political elite sincerely concerned about the wellbeing of regular people. What makes any of us think that it is different now?
If the Age of Enlightenment has brought forth anything, it is certainly this: Never take anything any government tells you at face value. Always question everything any government does or does not do. Always look for ulterior motives and always ask: Cui bono? Who benefits? Whenever a political elite pushes an agenda this hard, and resort to extortion and manipulation to get their way, you can almost always be sure your benefit is definitely not what they have at heart.
UPDATE: COVID-19 Cases Plummeted in Indonesia After Government Authorized IVERMECTIN For Treatment – Big Pharma Vaccines Made Little Difference
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit, October 29, 2021
On July 15, 2021, the Indonesian Food and Drug Monitoring Agency (BPOM) finally granted the Emergency Use Authorization for Ivermectin as the therapeutic drug to cure the Covid-19.
This was due to the country’s “worst-case scenario” epidemic at the time according to officials. The number of cases were soaring in the country and the medical authorities were desperate to control the outbreak.
Indonesia experienced a spike in COVID-19 infection and deaths in July and was struggling to slow the virus transmission due to its large population. The country was one of the nations greatly affected during the COVID pandemic. Indonesia is ranked as the world’s fourth most populous country with 277 million people.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported that one of its measures imposed by the Indonesian government was to authorize the use of Ivermectin as a COVID-19 treatment. COVID-19 cases started to fall precipitously and immediately to a low of 924 on the 19th of October.

The Strait Times reported:
The Indonesian government on Thursday (July 15) began distributing free medicine and vitamins to self-isolating Covid-19 patients in high-risk areas as the highly transmissible Delta variant of the coronavirus continued to rip through the country, emptying pharmacy shelves.
Each package will have seven days worth of therapeutic Covid-19 drugs and vitamins, and will be given to asymptomatic patients as well as those with mild to moderate symptoms including fever and dry cough. The medication for the latter group will require consultation with a doctor and a prescription.
Medical facilities are stretched thin, and demand for oxygen and medication has also soared. As scores of people are isolating themselves at home and self-medicating, prices of drugs have shot up in pharmacies and online. The health ministry has since moved to cap the prices of drugs such as favipiravir, remdesivir and ivermectin.
After the government authorized the use of Ivermectin for COVID-19 patients and its population, the number of cases have significantly plummeted since July.

The data above proves that Ivermectin played a role in the steep decline of COVID-19 cases. This is obvious despite the claim from fact-checker website below that there is “no evidence that the fall in COVID-19 cases in Indonesia is linked to the use of Ivermectin.”
Here’s the excerpt from Health Feedback:
Clinical trials didn’t show a clear benefit of ivermectin in reducing COVID-19 severity, hospitalization rate, or mortality. Epidemiological evidence also doesn’t indicate that ivermectin helped curb the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths in Indonesia or in other countries. However, these countries implemented other measures that have proven effective in limiting the spread of the virus, including vaccination and restrictions, which likely contributed to the decline in COVID-19 cases.

Simply because two events coincide in time doesn’t necessarily mean that one caused the other. Firstly, ivermectin endorsement doesn’t tell us whether the Indonesian population actually used ivermectin more than populations in other countries.
Secondly, even if the use of ivermectin did increase following the recommendation, we still can’t assess whether the drop in COVID-19 cases in Indonesia was due to the use of ivermectin or to other factors. Epidemiological data from countries that recommended ivermectin, such as India and Peru, doesn’t indicate that promoting the drug reduced the spread of the disease or its death toll. Both countries experienced multiple COVID-19 waves with high mortality throughout 2020 and 2021, and both withdrew ivermectin recommendations in 2021.
How do these fact-checkers explain the significant drop of cases in countries where Ivermectin is widely used like India, Indonesia, Namibia, and other countries?
While countries with high vaccination rates continue to experience major outbreaks of COVID-19, like Singapore, Ireland , the UK, Israel and many more.
Here’s the current number of COVID cases in Namibia:
The data below is the current number of COVID-19 cases as of October 27 in Indonesia. There are only 719 new cases recorded.
The massive drop of COVID-19 cases started after the government of Indonesia granted the emergency use of Ivermectin to COVID-19 patients. The country had a very low vaccination rate at the time with only 7.5% fully vaccinated in July.
As of October 27, Indonesia has 25.6% fully vaccinated.
Despite the success of Ivermectin, the fake news media and the government give the credit to the vaccine. President Jokowi of Indonesia during his visit to the G20 and COP26 meetings, said that there should be “more vaccine equity so that developing and poorer countries aren’t left behind.”
More from BBC:
“In this time of crisis, advanced countries need to do more in helping poor countries get vaccines, so that we can overcome this pandemic together.”
Mr Widodo’s comments come as Indonesia attempts to recover from the ravages of the pandemic.
The COVID situation has improved since then, with both deaths and case numbers falling, according to government data.
The vaccination drive has also picked up. According to the latest data from the World Bank, Indonesia has given more than 100 million doses of vaccines in the country, with almost 30% of the population fully vaccinated – no easy feat in a huge archipelago.
But while urban areas like Jakarta are now seeing high levels of vaccination rates, rural areas are harder to get to.
According to prestigious American Dr. Vladimir Zelenko during his exclusive interview with Gateway Pundit, he mentioned that the government is doing a “bait-and-switch.”
Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
So what the government is doing, is doing bait-and-switch. They’re saying the reason why they’re staying alive the patient is because of the vaccine. In reality it is because of Ivermectin. And the patients that are not vaccinated, are being refused life-saving medication and they’re dying and then they reach to the conclusion that the reason why they died was that they didn’t get the vaccine. In reality, the reason why they died was because the life-saving medication was withheld from them.

Ontario won’t force vaccines on hospital workers, Doug Ford says
Kristin Rushowy, Toronto Star, Nov. 3, 2021
Premier Doug Ford says that his government will not make vaccination mandatory for hospital workers amid concerns about staffing shortages in the sector.
Ford made the announcement in a statement issued on Wednesday afternoon, effectively going against the advice of a number of experts, including members of the province’s own science table who had touted the mandate as an “evidence-based policy that protects Ontarians.”
“This is a complex issue. But when the impact of the potential departure of tens of thousands of health-care workers is weighed against the small number of outbreaks that are currently active in Ontario’s hospitals, I am not prepared to jeopardize the delivery of care to millions of Ontarians,” Ford said in the statement. “Having looked at the evidence, our government has decided to maintain its flexible approach by leaving human resourcing decisions up to individual hospitals.”
The Ontario Hospital Association, along with all three opposition parties at Queen’s Park, have been calling on the Ford government to implement a mandatory vaccination policy for hospital workers since July.
The premier, however, has resisted taking the step despite doing so for the long-term care sector.
In recent weeks he has often cited the experience of Quebec, where a vaccine mandate was abruptly reworked on Wednesday so that it would only apply to new employees due to concerns about the cancellation of some surgeries.
“The reality is that because of high vaccination rates among hospital workers and robust infection prevention and control (IPAC) measures, including frequent testing of any hospital worker who isn’t vaccinated, only six out of Ontario’s 141 hospital systems, or less than five per cent, currently have an active COVID-19 outbreak,” Ford said in his statement. “Once identified, hospitals have protocols in place to effectively manage any outbreak to ensure that it is quickly contained, resolved, and has little if any impact on patient care.”
Ford had written hospital CEOs for input
Wednesday’s announcement comes two weeks after Ford wrote dozens of stakeholders, including every hospital CEO in Ontario, to solicit their input on the policy and ask them a number of pointed questions about the impact that potential staffing shortages could have on their operations.
Last week Health Minister Christine Elliott indicated that a decision was imminent but her office later retracted that statement as Liberal Leader Steven Del Duca accused the Ford government of failing to take decisive action and partaking in a “dithering dance” on vaccine mandates.
Ontario’s current policy allows unvaccinated health-care workers to continue to attend work so long as they participate in a rapid testing program for COVID-19.
Some individual hospitals have implemented more stringent policies, though.
Last month the Hospital for Sick Children announced that it was putting 147 employees on unpaid leave for not complying with their vaccine mandate. The University Health Network also indicated that it planned to terminate about one per cent of its workforce for failing to comply with a similar policy.
COVID-19: Quebec drops vaccination mandate for health-care workers
Alessia Simona Maratta, Global News, November 3, 2021
Quebec is backtracking on its enforced COVID-19 vaccination mandate for health-care workers, government officials announced Wednesday.
After pushing back its deadline multiple times, Health Minister Christian Dubé said the province will abandon the measure altogether, as the health-care network can’t afford to lose the thousands of non-vaccinated employees.
The loss of unvaccinated staff would have had a “devastating effect on the system,” according to the health ministry.
The province’s plan to suspend unvaccinated workers as of Nov. 15 would have forced the health network to cut services and would have compromised efforts to improve working conditions for all employees.
While 97 per cent of those who work in the heath network are vaccinated, 14,000 haven’t received a first dose, and of those, 5,000 are in direct contact with patients.
While vaccination will no longer be mandatory for current employees, Dubé added that all new health-care hires will have to be vaccinated.
Unvaccinated staff will be obliged to get tested for COVID three times a week, and those who don’t comply will be suspended without pay.
The government had originally set an Oct. 15 deadline for all workers to be vaccinated but extended it in the hopes of convincing the remaining staff to get their shots.
More to come.

RCMP Officers Shun “Forced Coercive” Vaccine Mandates
A group of RCMP officers in Canada have written an open letter to Commissioner Brenda Lucki opposing vaccine mandates. The letter outlines the reasons why they do not support what they call “ forced coercive medical intervention.”
The group named Mounties for Freedom explain that vaccination mandates go against the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and the Bill of Rights. They express major concern for the disregard of these founding legal documents that the country’s democracy was built on.
“Requiring mandatory COVID-19 treatment options is a slippery slope and allows the government to overstep its authority unchecked. It infringes on the fundamental belief in our society that the individual has the right and freedom to choose.”
One of the more unique parts of the letter discusses how RCMP officers are educated in spotting signs of domestic abuse. Through this education, they are suggesting that what is taking place right now, via government, parallels how an abuser treats their victims.
Being an RCMP officer already means exposure to a high risk job and higher levels of stress. With members being fired due to mandates, this will not only lead to higher stress levels for those without a job but also for those left overwhelmed and overworked picking up the slack.
The letter also questions the “scientific truths” the government is basing their decisions on, stating that throughout the pandemic there have been contradicting “scientific facts,” that have changed within weeks. Not to mention evidence throughout history that shows science is always changing.
There was a time when scientists believed humans were divided into racial hierarchies and that a person’s intelligence level and characteristics were determined by race15. These beliefs were not heavily contested and were widely accepted as scientific fact16. Phrenology was also widely accepted as being a legitimate scientific study.
The group is questioning the certainty around COVID “scientific facts” and attaches links to other open letters, studies, and concerns written by experts.
Another topic covered in the letter is discrimination and how what is taking place is a clear path to dehumanizing a specific group of people.
Mounties for Freedom says they are a diverse group of Mounties from different cultural backgrounds, religious beliefs, and vaccination status’, however it is unclear how many people are connected to the letter.
As of when this article was published there were over 40,000 signatures in support of this open letter. To sign, scroll to the bottom of the letter.
There has yet to be a response from Commissioner Brenda Lucki.
Vaccine advocate Peter King writes 1,739 words for a section entitled Death of a Ref in his weekly NFL roundup column. (1) At no point does he mention the fact that the healthy 71-year-old man who had just finished refereeing his last NFL game was fully-vaccinated, or contemplate what must be considered the probability that his fatal heart attack was vaccine-related:
The game ended at exactly 3 p.m. Central Time. If traffic on the 4-hour, 40-minute ride home to Weldon Springs, Mo., just west of St. Louis, was okay, Madsen would be home by a little after 9.
But at 4:46 p.m., police found his SUV in a northbound lane of I-65 just 10 minutes north of the stadium. The vehicle was on, in park, the rear brake lights on, doors locked. His right foot was pressed on the brake when officers, seeing he was unconscious, broke a window, removed him from the car and began doing chest compressions. He was pronounced dead a short time later at St. Thomas Midtown Hospital.
Fully Vaccinated Airline Passenger Dies Mid-Flight, Then Found to Be Infected with COVID
A 51-year-old vaccinated man died on a Pegasus Airlines flight from Turkey to Germany last week.
A report in The National notes that authorities have confirmed the man had coronavirus, but note the cause of death is unconfirmed.
The man departed Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen Airport in Turkey on Flight PC1-43 on Monday, Oct. 25.
Airline staff discovered the man dead in his seat when his plane landed in Hamburg, Germany. Medical test results indicate the man tested positive for COVID-19.
Pegasus Airlines confirmed the incident but stressed that their staff followed proper COVID-19 protocols.
The Western Journal reports that a police spokesperson indicated that the man was traveling alone and had a window seat.
The same report includes a statement from a Pegasus Airlines spokesperson:
“In full compliance with the COVID-19 regulations between Germany and Turkey, the passenger was allowed to take the flight from Istanbul to Hamburg after providing evidence of his or her complete vaccination status.”
Germany’s COVID-19 travel stipulations require travelers to take a COVID-19 test within 48 hours of their arrival in Germany, regardless of their country of origin.
Pegasus Airlines has withheld the man’s identity at this time but has extended condolences to his family.
“We extend our condolences to the family and neighbours of the passenger,” the airline stated, as reported by The National.

From Boeing to Mercedes, a U.S. Worker Rebellion Swells Over Vaccine Mandates
In Wichita, Kansas, nearly half of the roughly 10,000 employees at aircraft companies Textron Inc (TXT.N) and Spirit AeroSystems (SPR.N) remain unvaccinated against COVID-19, risking their jobs in defiance of a federal mandate, according to a union official.
“We’re going to lose a lot of employees over this,” said Cornell Adams, head of the local Machinists union district. Many workers did not object to the vaccines as such, he said, but were staunchly opposed to what they see as government meddling in personal health decisions.
More Than 2,000 New York City Firefighters Out Sick as Vaccine Mandate Takes Effect
Roughly 2,300 members of the New York City Fire Department claimed they were sick and didn’t show up to work on Monday as the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for municipal workers went into effect.
All city workers were required to have received at least one dose of the vaccine by October 29. City leaders suspect many of those who didn’t roll up their sleeves feigned illness to avoid being disciplined for failing to comply with the health requirement. Roughly 9,000 municipal workers were put on unpaid leave Monday for failing to meet the deadline and comply with the COVID-19 mandate, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
Nearly 90 NYPD Officers Forced to Go on Leave Over Vaccine Mandate
Nearly 90 officers with the New York Police Department (NYPD) are being forced to go on leave for not complying with the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, Commissioner Dermot Shea said Tuesday.
Shea told NY1 on Tuesday that 89 officers are on leave without pay for not complying with the mandate.
The number is a notable increase from Monday, when Shea told reporters that only 34 officers out of the roughly 35,000-strong workforce were placed on no-pay status for not complying with the mandate.
Facebook, Citing Societal Concerns, Plans to Shut Down Facial Recognition System
Facebook plans to shut down its decade-old facial recognition system this month, deleting the face scan data of more than one billion users and effectively eliminating a feature that has fueled privacy concerns, government investigations, a class-action lawsuit and regulatory woes.
Jerome Pesenti, vice president of artificial intelligence at Meta, Facebook’s newly named parent company, said in a blog post on Tuesday that the social network was making the change because of “many concerns about the place of facial recognition technology in society.”
Lawsuit Argues Augusta University Would Lose Substantial Revenue, Employees From Federal Vaccine Mandate
Augusta University is among the state universities represented in a lawsuit opposing President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal contractors, arguing that the requirement violates federal law. According to the lawsuit, if the mandate goes into effect, AU would stand to lose $17.1 million in federal contracts and their 200 affiliated employees.
According to the lawsuit, Augusta University, Georgia State University and the University of Georgia have a combined total of approximately 2,600 federal contracts and subcontracts.
It argues that the federal mask mandate makes an unreasonable requirement that anyone who had even fleeting contact with one of those federal contract workers would have to be at least partially vaccinated by Dec. 8. The lawsuit argues that the tally could be over 10,000 employees.
Judge Denies Order to Groups Fighting LAUSD Student Vaccine Mandate
A judge has denied a temporary restraining order sought by two nonprofit groups representing parents of nearly 1,500 Los Angeles Unified School District students who oppose the LAUSD’s student COVID-19 vaccine mandate on grounds such decisions should be left to the state Department of Public Health.
The judge said the groups can still seek relief later through a preliminary injunction.
Teen Screen Time Doubled During Pandemic Lockdowns — Higher Stress, Mental Health Drove up Viewing
Adolescents had more than a mean of 8 hours of screen time in the early pandemic period, almost doubling pre-pandemic totals, researchers found.
A large national sample of 5,412 adolescents found that mean screen time rose to 7.7 hours/day from pre-pandemic estimates of 3.8 hours/day at baseline, reported Jason Nagata, MD, of University of California San Francisco, and colleagues.
They noted that the stay-at-home orders, online learning, and social distancing requirements have contributed to adolescents’ increased use of digital media, but that “this has not yet been explored using U.S. data.”
The Corps’ COVID Vaccination Deadline Is Coming. Marines Who Refuse Will Be Booted
Barring an approved administrative, medical or religious accommodation, or a pending appeal, Marines who fail to meet the deadline will be processed for administrative separation, the MARADMIN said.
General court-martial convening authorities will “retain authority to take any additional adverse administrative or disciplinary action” deemed appropriate.
The Austrian Army Dogs Join Growing Global Pack of COVID-Sniffers
Austria’s army has successfully trained two dogs to sniff out COVID-19, it said on Tuesday, adding to a mass of evidence that dogs can be deployed to identify carriers of the virus.
Trials across the world from Thailand to Britain have found dogs can use their powerful sense of smell to detect the coronavirus with a high degree of accuracy, suggesting they could be regularly deployed as an additional line of safety at large events and border entry points.
