An investigation by experts in Spain has concluded that vaccine passports have no significant impact on reducing covid infection rates.
Details of the study, carried out by Spain’s inter-regional covid committee, were obtained by El Pais and reported on by the Telegraph.
Looking at how the scheme has been implemented in other European countries, the experts found that mandating people show proof of vaccination to enter venues like bars, restaurants and cinemas “is not reducing levels of transmission.”
“In European countries where [the system] is being used, cases are rising significantly, although it is true that their level of vaccination is much lower than in Spain,” the report states.
The researchers also concluded that vaccine passport schemes “contribute to a false impression that vaccinated people do not get infected,” when in fact “around 40 per cent of those vaccinated are susceptible to infection and transmitting the infection,” the report states.
The only positives of such a scheme are that it “warns people that there is still danger from the pandemic and encourages vaccination uptake among the reticent.”
In other words, although vaccine passports have no discernible impact on their stated goal – reducing the spread of covid-19 – they do succeed in keeping people fearful and compliant.
Thinking people will have sussed all this months ago — if these so-called ‘vaccines’ actually were safe and effective vaccines they would get support, but they’re not. All this passport (“certificate”) nonsense is subterfuge for creating a super-surveillance state in partnership with Big Tech. Jacinda government supporters are a mix of mostly those duped by her mainstream media propagandists and a smaller number of more sinister types in the shadows who know exactly what is going on. —Eds
“Entrepreneur Matt Smith, who works with legendary investor Doug Casey, discusses surviving the Great Reset. From his getaway location in South America, he talks expatriation; holding your ground; creating parallel societies, structures, economies; and wealth generation…for the months, if not, years of turmoil ahead.”
What seems very likely are parallel societies and economies, like the Speakeasies that sprang up during the American (alcohol) Prohibition era. It’s hard for the Jacinda government to punish cafés who tell her to Stuff off, but easier to punish places that sell alcohol: she just needs to tell them “your liquor license will be taken off you if you don’t comply with my dictates”. There is no shortage of Jacindanistas who will go around snitching as they have done for months over the face nappies. —Eds
Anja Wilhelmer says: “All Yoga classes outdoor and indoor are canceled. Only online one-on-one yoga is available at the moment. I am very sorry. Following the new covid guidelines we are not allowed to practice yoga outdoors or indoors without excluding members. We are not prepared to do that… no controlled entry and exit point and we don’t own the park. I will keep you posted should there be any changes. Take care and keep breathing.”
Maga Mike tells us, “I just got confirmation that Comrade Jacinda and Gayford have bought a farm on Fryer Road in Orepuki, Southland. They have been sourcing trophy stags from farms in Te Anau. Rumor is that it is going to be some sort of hunting and fishing tourist lodge similar to the one which operates in Lake Tekapo. Groundswell NZ will be interested to find out.”
It would be great if she would move there full time, but unfortunately that’s wishful thinking.
Why hasn’t the Jacinda government created these, you ask? Probably because as we’ve seen, it’s useless at building anything, only destroying. Back in this February post we suggested that they should get on with building Quarantine Camps for political opponents in good Communist fashion.
Team: Jacinda (J), Nanaia (N), Andrew (A), Grant (G)
Chaser: The Governess (TG)
Host: Bradley (B) B: Welcome to The Chase. Can a team of 4 players, who “say” they’ve never met before, work together to win thousands of dollars? I certainly hope so. There’s only one thing standing in their way – The Chaser. The chase is on!
So, let’s meet my team.
J: I’m Jacinda and my friends tell me I’m a natural leader. That’s why I’m in seat 1. My vision is to “reset” the way we govern and, ultimately, influence every sphere of life in Aotearoa, transforming it into the kindest and most caring country on Earth. N: I’m Nanaia and I also like to be in charge, though I’m more of a steel hand than a velvet glove kinda girl. It was easy to intimidate the rest of my team, so that’s why I’m in seat 2. I specialise in asset stripping and redistribution. Is it possible to have some picture questions, please? A: I’m Andrew and I used to be in charge… until I realised I wasn’t very good at it. I work in Health and spend huge sums of money for very “little” return. There’s a joke in there for those that know me at home… eh, Mum! Happy to be in any seat at all! G: I’m Grant and I always wanted to be in seat 4 because I’m a natural gambler and want the big offer. I work in Finance and spend even huger sums than Andrew.
B: And that’s my team. First up, it’s Jacinda! So Jacinda, tell us a bit about yourself.
J: Firstly, I’d like to say Kia Ora from Aotearoa, Bradley.
B: Never heard of it! I love New Zealand though!
J: I live with my daughter and my minor TV celebrity partner, and I successfully juggle motherhood with my career as a Kindness, Well-being & Inclusivity visionary. I work intimately with ALL government departments and specialise in leadership, PR and communications, rarely in that order. I feel strongly that traditional government attributes, like fiscal responsibility and governing largely for the majority, are outdated concepts and need to be replaced by a “new normal”. Through my influential work I aim to transform Aotearoa into a paradise for minorities and…
B: Alright, alright! We ain’t got all night, J. Give it a rest! You sound like one of them party political broadcast thingies. Now, what do you do in your spare time?
J: I enjoy holding mock daily press conferences, answering pre-approved questions, smiling patronisingly and waving my hands around so much I confuse the sign language interpreter.
B: And if you win some money today what would you do with it?
J: I’d donate it to my own charity which I’ve just started – The Kind and Caring Trust – which funds advertisements and billboards of myself smiling and saying ‘Be Kind.’ We already get substantial funding from the government for this vital humanitarian work – eh, Grant? I’ve never met Grant before, by the way.
B: Well, all the best. Are you ready? Your time starts….. now.
The word “democracy” comes from what language?
J: Oh, now it’s vaguely familiar….is it Japanese?
B: Wrong, Greek.
Complete the phrase “Oh, what a tangled web we weave….”
J: eh…”when we want to knit a sleeve”?
B: Wrong, …”when first we practice to deceive”
J: Makes no sense to me but it’s got a nice ring to it.
B: A person from what race first reached the South Pole?
J: I know this…Maori!
B: Wrong, Norwegian.
J: Are you sure about that? Nanaia, didn’t you tell me they were Maori? Not that we’ve ever met before this show.
N: I told you we possibly, almost certainly, may have discovered Antarctica first. I didn’t say we reached the South Pole.
B: And all that yakking means we’ve run out of time. Jacinda you scored $0. You’re definitely NOT a much better player than that. Which Chaser would you like to meet at the table?
J: The Secretary General of the UN, please.
B: You’ve never watched this show before, ‘ave you girl? Right, let’s meet the Chaser! And tonight it’s…. old frosty knickers herself — The Governess!
TG: Well Jacinda, you may be an influential power in government but your general knowledge couldn’t power a 12W light bulb.
J: That’s so kind!
TG: Oh, I can be much kinder than that, believe me!
B: Let’s put some offers on the table.
TG: A low offer of $1000….and a high offer of ….$20,000!
We have regrettably had our last Kapiti Historical Society talk for 2021. John Robinson spoke on Hone Heke and the 1840s northern rebellion back in October and we had an audience of about 20. Obviously, many people were reluctant to come out while the Jacinda government’s covid Level 2 was operating. Those who did get along heard a very interesting talk on the rebel chief who was opposed at the time by most of the tribal leaders in the North.
Over the last three months we had hoped to have sessions led by:
· Professor Mark Dickson from Auckland University on Kapiti’s Changing Coastline
· Jim Bolger on how history repeats and political reminiscences
· David Hadfield on his father Barry who was first Mayor of the Kapiti District.
Mark couldn’t get out of Auckland; David preferred to wait until the covid situation improved and we felt that as Jim would be a big attraction, we would save him for 2022.
Taking a break
John and Lesley Robinson have decided to step back from the KHS administration after three years of devoted service. So we will need some assistance from others in 2022. Let us know if you would be able to help.
There was an eclectic range of talks in 2021
It’s noteworthy that we had seven sessions in 2021 on a wide range of subjects.
· Andy Oakley on the one valid Treaty of Waitangi
· John Mclean on Parihaka
· Myself on Gallipoli
· Glenda Robb on the Queen Elizabeth Park Biodiversity Project
· Larry Keim on the Marines in Kapiti and films taken at the time
· Desiree Jury on the historical novel
· John Robinson on Hone Heke
Thanks to all you folk for your contributions to the programme.
Appreciation for their efforts
Thanks to John for his co-coordination of the group; to Lesley and Pam and others who have assisted with the suppers; to Larry Keim and David Hadfield who have provided technical support; to Gordon Dickson who has been the liaison with the Kapiti Uniting Church and introduced many of the speakers; and those who have given votes of thanks.
It’s not easy! We live in an uncertain world and the future is very hard to predict. As mentioned above, we have three speakers ready to go if circumstances permit, and other names have been suggested.
We’ll keep you informed.
Thank you for your support in 2021 and we hope you have a relaxing festive season with family and friends.
Roger Childs, with John Robinson and Gordon Dickson
The Justice Minister wrote to the Select Committee overseeing the Three Strikes repeal asking it to examine whether people already sentenced under Three Strikes should have their sentences re-evaluated.
These people were sentenced under the law at the time of their offence, now Faafoi wants to re-sentence them under a different law. When he announced his intention to repeal Three Strikes he said it would not be retrospective.
He said in Parliament at First Reading “We acknowledge that there are victims in this and there will be no revictimisation of those people during this process, because there is no retrospective aspect of this Bill”.
But in a letter to the Select Committee, he said, “Cabinet considered how the Bill should respond to those who have already been sentenced under the law.”
Faafoi acknowledged in Parliament that re-sentencing these offenders would revictimise people. It is frankly appalling that he and his Cabinet colleagues, who claim they are the Government of kindness, would do this to victims.
In answer to Written Parliamentary Questions from the ACT Party about whether the Government consulted with victims before it announced it would repeal the legislation Faafoi said, “given the Bill is not currently retrospective, so does not allow for re-sentencing, directly contacting victims was not appropriate.”
Faafoi didn’t bother to even consult victims – and now he wants to repeal the sentences of the people who carried out serious violent offences against them.
Three Strikes offenders make up just one per cent of all convictions, they have an average of 75 convictions, they are the worst and most violent offenders New Zealand has seen. They aren’t behind bars for petty theft or minor crimes. They have beaten, raped and murdered people.
Faafoi needs to stick to his word that he won’t re-traumatise victims. This law should not be retrospective, and ACT will continue to fight that every step of the way.
Parliamentary Written Question:
Reply 52344 (2021) has been answered Portfolio: Justice (Hon Kris Faafoi)
Question: On what dates did the Minister consult the Chief Victims Advisor on the proposed repeal of the Three Strikes Law and what was the advice provided to him by the Chief Victims Advisor?
Reply: I meet with the Chief Victims Advisor on a relatively regular basis where a number of issues are canvassed. Ministry officials met with the Chief Victims Advisor on the 19th of May to discuss the potential impact on victims should the legislation allow resentencing.
The Chief Victims Advisor discussed the importance of working closely with their office and our Court Victims Advisors on any direct contact with victims. The advice was reflected in Ministry official’s advice to government. However, given the bill is not currently retrospective, so does not allow for resentencing, directly contacting victims was not appropriate.
