Here's a COVID email dump for you!
Important disclaimer directed at the Thought Police and various other snoops during these times when those who hold unacceptable ideas get punished:
The following article is not medical advice, I'm merely sharing what I know with subscribers to my blog. They are sensible people who are able to think for themselves.
I've been in regular contact with Australian economist, Gigi Foster, who is co-author of the book, "COVID Panic". With this book, Gigi and her two co-authors outline: "How to make sense of the astonishing upheaval of Spring 2020 and following? Normal life – in which expected rights and freedoms were taken for granted – came to be replaced by a new society as managed by a medical/ruling elite that promised but failed to deliver virus mitigation, all in the name of public health".
I have just finished reading their book and recommend it along with Kennedy's mind-blowing book, "The Real Fauci":
Gigi is doing a great job at keeping track of developments, making sense of what is behind this oppressive mayhem and documenting things. Below is an email dump she sent me. There is enough information in these emails to keep the most obsessive Pandemicer going for weeks!
We have her permission to share this information.
FW: Voices against lockdowns Gigi Foster <firstname.lastname@example.org>7 February 2022 at 18:19To: Gigi Foster <email@example.com>Dear all, What a stunning few weeks it has been. In the footsteps of previous generations of freedom fighters, Americans have gathered at the Lincoln Memorial in the US capitol to “defeat the mandates” (livestream coverage here). In the Freedom Convoy 2022, Canadian truckers have staged what is fast proving to be the most determined, level-headed, and internationally inspirational demonstration against the covid policy response that we have seen in the past two years. Inspired speeches and community spirit have been heart-warming features of the Ottawa occupation that has drawn attention from across the globe. Taking a cue from the Canadians, Australian resistors have convoyed down to Canberra and set up camp. (More on the Canberra events here, here, and here, with anger boiling over into signals of revolutionary intent in some quarters and the convoy drawing attention from the UK press.) The New Zealanders too are now convoying. As my publisher has written, when performed at the right moment, such acts of solidarity and courage can make a measurable impact on the course of history. We are starting to see mainstream figures edge away from the conviction that freedom restrictions as the right response to covid, including the White House and the American NFL. Several countries in Europe have significantly walked back pandemic restrictions, including the UK (whose national health system has scrapped its vax mandate for health workers, citing staff shortages) and Sweden and its Nordic neighbours; and some countries are stopping some covid vaccines in some age groups based on accumulating evidence about side effects. The international press (with the Wall Street Journal a leading example; see here and here) is increasing publishing sensible dissenting arguments. This paper, finding that lockdowns weren’t worth the damage they caused, has seemed to crack into the mainstream – including in Australia. Realities about the present covid vaccines (such as their ineffectiveness in preventing transmission) are starting to surface even in mainstream journals. There are signs that infighting, re-writing of history, and the blame game have begun amongst the ranks of those who have played prominent roles in covid policy-setting, with whistle-blowers speaking out, corporate execs resigning for moral reasons, some politicians facilitating and disseminating their own investigations about what has gone on during covid times, and some jurisdictions pro-actively defending their people against covid-inspired bullying and moralising. On the legal front too, developments have been rapid.

Some straight talk from the Australian and international blogosphere: https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2022/01/its_time_to_admit_failure_in_the_war_against_covid.html#.YeJLG3yvOAg.mailto https://spectator.com.au/2022/01/melbournes-medical-nihilism-in-the-time-of-covid/ https://www.tabletmag.com/sections/science/articles/needle-points-vaccinations-chapter-one https://vinayprasadmdmph.substack.com/p/uk-now-reports-myocarditis-stratified https://blog.canberradeclaration.org.au/2022/01/20/8-reasons-pfizer-cannot-be-trusted/ In spite of the promising developments of the past couple of months, the fight is not over. Claiming violation of their standards, the fund-raising site GoFundMe has kicked the Canadian Freedom Convoy off its platform, and in response the convoy’s organisers have shifted to GiveSendGo. The public outcry against Spotify for giving Joe Rogan a platform (about which you can express a view here) has seen Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and other musicians try to wield their power as artists to block the expression of non-mainstream opinion. Medical professionals who have followed their conscience and their expertise during this time rather than following government edicts and the pronouncements of bureaucrats are still being attacked, bullied, and censured, and are reporting that when they want to discuss the evidence, “no one wants to fight” them (an experience I’ve also had, with no pro-lockdown Australian commentator having yet been willing to engage publicly with me about covid policy questions). Participation in our legal institutions, including juries, has been prohibited for unvaccinated people in WA. In a now-familiar pattern, people still thoughtlessly supporting and justifying the standard line on covid continue to accuse dissenters of doing exactly what they themselves are doing – i.e., offending values as diverse as free speech, tolerance, life preservation, empathy, and scientific approaches to policy-making: https://jonathanturley.org/2021/08/04/baylor-professor-calls-for-prosecution-of-criticism-of-fauci-and-other-scientists-as-hate-crime/.

Also, some brief reminders: all previous missives (since August 2020) appear below if you scroll down; on-forwarding or re-posting is welcome; and all requests to be removed from this mailing list will be actioned promptly. The “mainstream narrative” seems to be rapidly losing its vice-like grip on populations and politicians around the world. This is not the time to ease up on our efforts to recover the freedoms from which we have been separated for nearly two years, to illuminate and communicate the truth, and to work towards amending our institutions so that such a horror never recurs. Steady on and we will see a return of light and freedom. gigi From: Gigi Foster <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Saturday, 15 January 2022 12:18 PM To: Gigi Foster <email@example.com> Subject: FW: Voices against lockdowns Dear all, Things have been heating up fast, on both sides of this fight of our lives. Australia’s incompetent, inhumane, hyper-politicised, multi-headed covidocracy has embarrassed the country on the world stage via its treatment of the world’s number one men’s tennis player. The reactions of the Australian public to this debacle have demonstrated some of the most benighted elements of Australian culture. The US Supreme Court has thrown out most of President Biden’s covid vaccine mandate (while allowing it to stand for healthcare work subsidised by the federal government), other legal victories have been emerging, and just today it became possible to cross into Queensland over state borders unencumbered by covid regulations. In what I hope are the death throes of the covid compliance ideology (though some outlets are more pessimistic), several world leaders have begun “othering” unvaccinated people in their speeches. Cracks in the covid narrative have been gaining increasingly mainstream coverage, with accompanying anger and confusion, around the world. The covid resistance in Australia and worldwide has been gaining in numbers, courage, and determination. One by one, people who for myriad reasons have finally reached their breaking points have begun adding their individual voices to resistance groups communicating, collaborating, and fighting to hold our institutions to account for the immoral restrictions issued over the past two years. The realisation is dawning that a better future will not just drop from the sky, but must be dreamt of, argued for and built, by good people who are willing to pay the costs of these actions. Although some setbacks have occurred in spite of courageous voices over the three months since I last wrote, I am increasingly hopeful that 2022 will bring the restoration of our basic pre-covid freedoms in Australia – the freedom for all people to show our faces in public, to celebrate, worship, and mourn together in groups of any number and in any proximity in or out of doors, to conduct our businesses, ply our trades, attend our schools, receive medical help, and travel where we like without first being required to submit to medical procedures of dubious social efficacy that may be seriously harmful to us personally, to protest peacefully against government policies with which we disagree – and all of this without the crippling uncertainty created by the spectre of new covid-excused directives that might be handed down at any moment by those in authority and impinge once again on our freedom. Recognising for themselves the bankruptcy of the justifications for so many actions taken, those in positions of power will slowly creep away, hopeful of escaping justice, but some will be held to account and the first stirrings of true reckonings of what has happened here will begin. Our social and economic resources will shift perceptibly from checking, enforcing, cowering, and punishing to caring, healing, learning, and working at what each of us does best. Such are my hopes for the new year. Let me begin this missive with contributions from several internationally prominent personalities and courageous thinkers. Jordan Peterson is angry: It's Time to Live Robert Malone (one of several doctors challenging the mainstream responses to covid, including lack of emphasis on early treatments such as, but not limited to, ivermectin) is given a platform by Joe Rogan to discuss the covid vaccines, and the talk reaches 50 million viewers worldwide. Predictably, Rogan is witheringly attacked afterwards by other scientists and an Australian guest soon afterwards challenges Rogan on an important point about side effects of the covid vaccines, revealing a shallowness of analysis on both sides. (Not all covid infections are documented, particularly amongst the young and hardly symptomatic, not to mention that a single article should never be considered a strong enough basis on which to recommend a recently developed medical treatment to an entire demographic group; also see this analysis by writers at The Expose, this analysis by Toby Rogers, this compilation of sudden deaths in young vaccinated athletes, this discussion with a molecular biologist, this discussion of potential longer-run side effects, and this analysis by Steve Kirsch.) If you are interested in more information about covid vaccines and how to get involved with groups pushing against them, including their use in children, I advise you to email Tania de Jong who runs a mailing list on such topics.
