CANCELLING WOMEN – PROPOSED NEW ‘WOKE’ LANGUAGE LAWS REMOVES FEMALE TERMINOLOGY FROM THE STATE’S IR ACT

The Palaszczuk Government introduced a new Bill last month which contain a number of radical IR reforms that Queenslanders should be very concerned about.

I will be discussing some of these concerns in future posts.  Here I just want to draw people’s attention to the new gendered language provisions and “nation-leading reforms” on “gender-based harassment” in the workplace.

The Bill’s amendments make “gender-based harassment” a “type of misconduct” which will result in “summary dismissal” of any worker found guilty of engaging in this “type of abhorrent conduct” Minister Grace said when tabling the Bill.

Also included are amendments removing gendered language from Queensland’s Industrial Relations Act.

Terms like ‘maternity’ and ‘she’ are removed from the Act and replaced with dehumanising terms like ‘birth-related’ and ‘the employee’.

One clause in the Bill replaces “maternity leave” with “birth-related leave”, while elsewhere “maternity leave” is replaced with “pregnancy-related”.

The idea is to rid the IR Act with anything that specifically denotes a woman and replacing it with the new “gender neutral language”.

Women I have spoken with on the subject have told me they feel insulted and disrespected by the Bill’s changes.

The legislation artificially does away with legal recognitions of male and female sexes.  At the very least it waters them down so as to make them virtually meaningless.

Many women feel they are increasingly being deprived of their right to a separate identity and voice within society.

Fair Go for Queensland Women (FGQW) said in their submission that the legislation propagates the “worrying trend” towards the “conflation of sex and gender” in Queensland, by elevating “gender over sex in social discourse, policy and legislation”.

“We firmly believe that sex, as an objective and immutable characteristic must be retained in public policy and legislation”, the feminist group wrote, adding:

“Removing language that respects women and their important as well as physically and emotionally demanding role in gestation, birthing and primary care (including breastfeeding, which is a significant undertaking) of infants is not in the interests of Mothers, their babies, their families or the larger community”.

Well said!

THE ALARMING COLLAPSE IN BIRTHS WORLDWIDE

In 2020, ‘population experts’ predicted a baby boom due to lockdowns.

They couldn’t have been more wrong.

Instead of a baby boom, the world is seeing a gigantic baby bust.

Data for the first quarter of 2022, shows an alarming fall in births from 2021, with some of the most notable being a 23 percent drop in Taiwan, 20 percent in Mongolia, 12-14% in Germany, Estonia, Hungary and Finland.

In Australia, births hit a record low of 1.58 in 2020 according to the ABS (figures for 2022 aren’t yet available).

Despite the plummeting birth numbers and rising death rates, however, the UN’s Secretary General announced yesterday that the ‘exploding’ global population will hit eight billion by mid-November this year.

This, he said, is a “reminder of our shared responsibility to care for the planet” which, he added, “is in peril”.

Overpopulation is one of those “conventional wisdoms”, based on the “everybody knows” argument drummed into us at an early age.

Looking at some of the birth rate numbers around the world, however, many are starting to wonder if the UN and its population models, could be wrong?

Not just a little bit wrong, either, but DEAD WRONG.

As Elon Musk points out, the UN uses a set of deeply flawed computer models to calculate population.  These models have a number of problems, he said, including a ‘baked in’ assumption that if “something didn’t happen in the past, it won’t happen in the future”.

In 2019, the Lancet published a study funded by Bill and Melinda Gates based on figures obtained from researchers living in countries around the world.

These figures were radically lower than those bandied about by the UN.

According to the Lancet study, there are almost no regions of the world – bar parts of West Africa – where women are still having babies at a level needed to maintain their population.

2.1 is the number of children that women need to have in order to sustain a population.

Take the world’s two most populous countries, China and India.  Together they make up 40 percent of the world’s population.

In 2020, India’s 5 year National Family Health Survey revealed that India’s birth rate has now fallen below replacement levels for the first time.

China’s has been well below replacement level for years.

Even ending its disastrous ‘one-child’ policy failed to reverse the trend.

As Canadian demographer, John Ibbitson, put it in his 2019 book ‘Empty Planet’:

“For the first time in human history, we are deliberately culling ourselves by having fewer babies than we need to reproduce”.

“DRUG REGULATOR FOR HIRE” –  SCATHING REVIEW OF THE TGA CONTAINED IN NEW UK REPORT ON WORLD REGULATORY BODIES

Last month, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) published its findings on the funding, transparency and decision-making processes of six of the world’s leading regulators, including Canada, Europe, Japan, the UK, the US and Australia.

The report gives a scathing review of the TGA, Australia’s national pharmaceuticals and medical devices regulator.

According to BMJ’s investigation, the TGA is riddled with ‘Conflicts of Interest’ as a result of its overwhelming reliance on ‘industry monies’.

Nearly 100% of the TGA’s $170m Budget in 2021, the report found, comes from the pharmaceutical industry’s “user fees” – a level regarded as “unacceptable” by experts.

US Drug regulation Expert, Donald W Light commented that:

“Like the FDA, the TGA was founded to be an independent institute.  However, being largely funded by fees from companies whose products it is charged to evaluate is a FUNDAMENTAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST AND A PRIME EXAMPLE OF INSTITUTIONAL CORRUPTION.”

“It’s the opposite of having a trustworthy organisation independently and rigorously assessing medicines” he continued.

“THEY’RE NOT RIGOROUS, THEY’RE NOT INDEPENDENT, THEY ARE SELECTIVE AND THEY WITHHOLD DATA.”

Ouch!

The TGA also copped a serve for the blanket of secrecy it imposes on the Conflict of Interest declarations made by members of its Advisory Committee on Vaccines.

Forced to lodge a FOI request to try and obtain the information, researchers received a heavily redacted document from TGA with all names and declaration details blacked out.

When challenged, the TGA said COI declarations are “personal information” and therefore exempt from FOI.

The researchers then contacted members directly, asking if they would be willing to make a ‘voluntary’ disclosure of their declarations, but received no response.

Also heavily criticised was TGA’s practice of granting approvals without reference to the original patient trial datasets.

TGA, the report said, prefers to rely on “the Summary information provided by the vaccine manufacturer”.

Something which may explain the staggeringly high number of approvals the TGA hands out – 9 out of every 10 applications received in 2021 were approved by the agency.

According to Canada’s regulatory expert, Joel Lexchin:

“The TGA should not be relying on the analysis of that data produced by the drug companies.  Rather the TGA should be re-analysing the source data”.

It should also be “holding public hearings before new drugs are approved so that it can hear from members of the public and outside scientists”.

Overall, the authors said they “found that industry money permeates the globe’s leading regulators, raising questions about their independence, especially in the wake of a string of drug and device scandals”.

THE END OF MEDICAL FREE SPEECH IN QUEENSLAND

New legislation introduced in Queensland, the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2022, will greatly enhance the government regulator’s powers for censoring doctors in Queensland.

The Bill grants APHRA new and unprecedented powers for coercively silencing doctors who stray from the officially mandated ‘narrative’ and preventing vital information ever reaching the ears of the public.

The new bill will overturn centuries of medical practice by replacing the principle that a doctor’s loyalty must, first and foremost, be to the well-being of their patient, and replacing it with a new guiding principle – upholding and safeguarding ‘public trust’ and ‘confidence’ in public health authorities.

The Explanatory Notes say the regulatory body will be free to take action against a doctor or health practitioner in any way they deem “necessary or convenient” to ‘safeguard’ public confidence and safety.

APHRA will also be able to publicly ‘name and shame’ doctors before they have been found guilty of anything.

This robs doctors of their right to the ‘presumption of innocence’, ‘natural justice’ and ‘due process’.

It also takes away their right to practice their profession without political harassment or interference.

Doctors should be free to engage in clinical debate on clinical issues to do with the effectiveness of treatment options and must be free to advise their patients honestly on any matter raised during a doctor-patient consultation.

If doctors aren’t allowed to discuss alternatives to standardised medical options with their patients, then the legal requirements for informed consent can’t be satisfied and the standard of patient-care will suffer.

If we aren’t careful, health protocols in Queensland will no longer be adopted based on experience and evidence-based medicine, but on the diktats of public health officials and regulators who have never treated a single patient in their lives.

By delegating such unlimited powers to AHPRA, the Government has virtually handed them a blank cheque to do whatever they like.

The Bill contains no clear avenues for appeal or redress for doctors unfairly targeted by AHPRA, even if subsequently cleared of wrongdoing.

It is important to note that AHPRA is an unelected, executive agency that answers to no-one.

This means that nothing they say or do is subject to questioning, verification or independent review by any jurisdiction.

APHRA must not be given the last word on what ‘truth’ in medicine is.  There must always be room for ‘dissenting’ views and debate.

Without that, we are no longer a democracy.

TGA “EVALUATING” MODERNA SHOTS FOR BABIES AND TODDLERS.  WHAT’S THE RUSH?

Despite conclusive evidence that young children are at virtually no risk at all of severe complications or death from the virus, the TGA announced last month it is evaluating an application from Moderna to inject its experimental mRNA shots into the arms of babies as young as six months.

Currently, Israel is the only country that has approved the shots for this age cohort, although the US Advisory Committee is voting on the issue this week.

I can’t find anything online about Moderna running any clinical trials for this age bracket, although there Moderna was reported as saying last year that they were hoping to carry out their baby and toddler trials here in Australia.

Pfizer’s baby trials are being run in the US and according to reports, these have not been completed yet and the clinical trial group was fairly small.

According to the TGA’s media release: “the authorisation (for Moderna shots) would be for a two-dose regimen, with the possibility of extending it to a third dose”.

Why is this even being considered here in Australia, given the risks involved?

It is well-known that the messenger RNA-based injections have been linked to heart conditions such as myocarditis and pericarditis, particularly in young men.

Some countries have even said they won’t even consider shots in this age group “after some studies showed it was tied to a higher risk of the heart inflammation”, according to a report in the West Australian yesterday:

The FDA itself said recently that myocarditis is a known risk and that the clinical trials for these age groups WERE NOT LARGE ENOUGH TO QUANTIFY THE FREQUENCY OF THE INFLAMMATION.”

Moreover, the FDA has revealed that early trial data for 2-5-year-olds showed an efficacy rate of just 36.8% using the CDC case definitions, and 50.6% for the 6-23 month group.

So again, what on earth is the rush here?

Historically, young children and pregnant women were always excluded from early human trials, irrespective of the drug.

As I mentioned, children are virtually at zero risk of dying from this virus. They may test positive and even develop symptoms, but they get through it the same way they get through any other cold or flu.

There is simply no justification for the TGA to even consider extending the shot to a group this young.

Especially when we are talking about a radically new treatment that has never been tested on animals and for which there is no long term safety data.

The risk of harm to these vulnerable babies is just too great.

(This is NOT medical advice – Just my opinion!!)

HUNDREDS OF LIFE-SAVING DRUGS HAVE EITHER RUN OUT, OR ARE ABOUT TO RUN OUT – WHY?

Australia is experiencing crippling mass shortages of hundreds of life-saving medications and a range of other healthcare products.

Since 2020, the TGA has listed in excess of 700 medicines as in limited supply.  Today, there are 290 medicines that are either ‘unavailable’ or in short supply.

Why is this happening?

Well it turns out that virtually all the world’s active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and chemicals needed to manufacture essential medicines, are made in China.

In some cases, they are produced by just one Chinese factory!

Take piperacillin-tazobactam.  It is a critically important antibiotic that is made by a single factory in Hubei.

In 2016, an explosion destroyed it, causing a worldwide shortage that was later blamed for multiple deaths across Africa and Brazil.

Then there’s the single factory in Shanghai that makes a contrast dye needed for MRIs, CT scans and other life-saving diagnostic x-rays.

That factory has been shut down for months, again causing an ongoing worldwide shortage, including here in Australia.

The world is now over 90% dependent on China’s APIs for most of its essential medicines, including antibiotics, anti-cancer drugs and medications that treat cancer, HIV, asthma, heart problems, blood pressure, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, depression and seizures.

Even India, a major pharmaceutical manufacturer, relies on China for around 80% of the active ingredients used in its products.

As one researcher put it: “it’s the nightmare scenario”, with the world starting to run out of drugs with no easy alternative sources.

A lot of the problem is secrecy.

Regulators don’t even know the full picture of where all the ingredients in our medications actually come from.

And that’s because companies consider their API manufacturers to be proprietary information.

In February, the FDA announced that one drug was in short supply but wouldn’t say which, because naming it would have revealed “supply chain trade secrets”.

Many companies even hold plant locations as a closely held trade secret.

According to the Senior Director of a US Pharmacist Association that tracks shortages, it’s the murkiness of the supply chain that makes it hard to prevent shortages.

“And again, we don’t know where a lot of those drugs are made” he said.

The implications of all this for Australia’s national security are simply staggering.

AS Air Vice-Marshall Blackburn said at a Joint Standing Committee in 2020:

“We import about 90 per cent of our liquid fuels, 90 percent of our medicines and we rely on foreign-owned and flagged ships for about 98 per cent of our trade.  The import dependency has been further compounded by the failure of past governments to mandate stockholding levels for any of these imports.”

Those “past governments” have left Australia in an utterly untenable position.

TGA CHIEF CONTINUES TO ‘STONEWALL’ ON QUESTIONS AROUND ADVERSE INJURIES AND DEATHS

To date, there have been 119,771 vaccine related injuries and 801 deaths reported to the Database of Adverse Event Notifications (DAEN), the TGA’s tracking system.

The actual numbers are probably a lot higher than that.

Many experts have argued for decades that these adverse event reporting systems are severely undercounting deaths and injuries.

One report submitted to the US Department of Health in 2010, concluded that “fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported to the VAERS system”.

So how many Australians have been killed or injured by these vaccines?

Nobody seems to know, although Senators Malcolm Roberts and Gerard Rennick did their best to find out at this week’s Estimates Hearings.

Instead of answering their questions transparently, however, TGA Chief, John Skerrit, gave a masterful impersonation of Sir Humphrey Appleby as he ‘ducked and weaved’ like a pro.

According to Skerrit, only 11 of the 801 deaths reported have been ‘confirmed’ as ‘vaccine-related’ – a number which has remained unchanged for 6 months.

When Malcolm Roberts asked how many of the remaining 790 cases has been reviewed and closed, and how many are still under review?”, Skerrit promptly said he would have to ‘take the question on notice’.

This was the final straw for the One Nation Senator who pointed out that he had asked the same question at two earlier hearings and each time the TGA chief had failed to give him a response.

In fact, 61 of 136 ‘questions on notice’ from the February hearings, he said, remained outstanding.

Gerard Rennick immediately chimed in to say that he is also waiting on responses to numerous questions he asked TGA in February.

The whole thing is very strange.

There have been more injuries and deaths recorded against Covid vaccines in Australia, than for all other vaccines combined since 1971.

And yet Australians have received no formal warnings, such as labelling or letters sent to warn doctors, pharmacists or the public.

Why hasn’t the TGA recommended follow-up symptom tracking to avoid further cardiovascular, neurologic or thrombotic events?

Why hasn’t an independent Data Safety Monitoring Board been set up to monitor post-marketing effects?

More importantly, why is the TGA refusing to answer questions on exactly how many of the reported deaths have been fully investigated and what the investigation procedure involves?

If Australians are being forced to take endless rounds of these shots, then they have an absolute right to know what the possible effects might be.

No amount of mutterings about ‘conspiracy theories’ or ‘social harms’ from the TGA Chief, can alter that fact.

Professor Skerrit needs to be pulled into line and made to answer questions without all this ridiculous ‘stonewalling’.

It is time all these arrogantly secretive health bureaucrats were held to account.

MODERNA AND THE PLANNED ‘RESET’ OF AUSTRALIAN HEALTHCARE

News that the Australian Government has entered into a ‘strategic partnership’ with the US biotech, Moderna, is alarming on a number of levels.

Firstly, the 10-year agreement allows Moderna to build a new fully-automated vaccine manufacturing facility in Melbourne, capable of producing up to 100 million mRNA vaccine doses annually.

100 million vaccine doses – every year!  Just let that sink in a moment.

Moderna is a WEF ‘Global Growth Company’, funded by a consortium of investors, including Bill Gates, the Singaporean Government, the US military’s DARPA and the US Government’s Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA).

Its CEO, Stephane Bancel, another of WEF’s Young Global Leaders, said the company already has 28 vaccine candidates in its mRNA pipeline, including vaccines for 15 pathogens, as well as cancer, shingles and herpes.

The University of Queensland also announced a ‘partnership’ with Moderna last month, which will allow it to create its own new mRNA vaccines here in Queensland.

Moderna’s ‘mRNA Access’ is a fully automated system which was modelled on the software used by Tesla, for managing its orders.

Scientists simply enter the protein they want, and vials containing testable mRNA are sent to them within weeks.

So, far from coming to an end, it seems ongoing mRNA shots are shaping up to become a fixture of our lives for many years to come.

According to Bancel, mRNA technology “hacks the operating system of life, turning human bodies into drug factories by directing cells to produce therapeutic proteins” (Forbes 2017).

It “is like software” he said: “IF IT WORKS FOR ONE DISEASE, IT SHOULD WORK FOR THOUSANDS”.

Treatments involve repeat doses of the mRNA vaccines and boosters over many years, so a patient’s body can keep producing the proteins needed to keep disease at bay.

As one scientist said: “You have to wonder what the interaction between two or three different types of these mRNA vaccines will be within the complex environment of the human body.”

Health officials are now openly talking about the need to ‘transform’ healthcare from its current ‘pay for service’ model into one focussed on ‘predictive’ and ‘preventative’ medicine.

By ‘predictive’ medicine, what they actually mean is a mass data-gathering, ‘real-time’ surveillance system driven by AI, data-sharing and ‘wearable tech’.

The aim is to create a giant database containing everyone’s detailed genetic and behavioural ‘profiles’.

‘Preventative’ medicine then uses these ‘profiles’ to create an increasingly dehumanised healthcare service built around ‘behaviour change’ nudges (to become ‘shoves’ over time) and mandated medical treatments aimed at preventing the onset of certain conditions/diseases people may have a genetic or behavioural pre-disposition towards, BEFORE they actually manifest.

The dystopian implications of such a system, particularly when tied with the government’s new CB digital currency and ID system, are virtually limitless.

WORLD TOLD TO ‘BRACE FOR FOOD RATIONING’: MILLIONS WILL STARVE

There are so many bad things going on in the world right now, that it is getting harder and harder to keep up.
However, the wholesale destruction of the world’s food supply is something nobody should ignore.
While Australia and other wealthy countries will see shortages of some items and skyrocketing prices for others, many of the world’s poorer nations won’t be so lucky with hundreds of millions of people facing severe hunger in 2022.
The situation was bad enough with skyrocketing fertiliser, fuel and shipping costs, but recent events in the Ukraine have made everything a hell of a lot worse.
Russia and Ukraine alone account for roughly 30 per cent of global wheat and barley exports, while 40% of the world’s fertilisers are supplied by Belarus and Russia.
The sanctions on Russia and Belarus have therefore removed key ingredients from the world’s food supply, causing wheat and other grain prices, to absolutely explode.
Grain-rich countries like Moldova and Hungary, have put bans on the export of grains and fertilisers as they desperately move to hold on to their own supplies.
Countries like Egypt, Turkey and Lebanon, who rely exclusively on Ukraine-Russia-Belarus for supplies, are now scrambling to buy whatever they can on the grain market.
EU farmers have called for a suspension of Europe’s ‘Green New Deal’ farming restrictions, with no success.
Germany’s Agriculture Minister told farmers the restrictions, which prevent them from cultivating all their farmland or using more than 50% fertilisers/pesticides – are staying.
German farmers are furious, many accusing the Minister of “murder”.
As one said in a video that went viral:
“In the midst of this catastrophe, this green eco-fanaticism – is putting ecological madness before human lives”.
This is disgraceful.
You can’t just eliminate 40% of the world’s grains, from the Black Sea region, and expect innocent people not to suffer.
In the past, sanctions were carefully targeted. You never just cut off part of the world’s food supply like this.
It’s as though they just want to burn the whole system down in order to replace it with the new ‘Reset’ model they have planned.
Here in Australia, governments have done nothing to warn its citizens of the coming food crisis, or formulate contingency plans.
This means we all need to make our own, starting with emergency food gardens, to insulate our family and community as much as possible.
Everyone should also stock up on flour, rice, barley and other grains.
If you wait till you’ve run out, they may not be there.

BEWARE OF ‘HUMAN RIGHTS’ COMMISSIONERS BEARING GIFTS …. !

Queensland’s Human Rights Commissioner made an excellent start in his Submission on the Government’s new Public Health and Other Legislation (Extension of Expiring Provisions) Bill 2022.

He said he did NOT support the “extension of Queensland’s existing Covid-19 emergency powers legislation”, arguing there was no longer “sufficient justification” for its ongoing limitations on human rights.

The Commissioner also made a number of extremely insightful comments regarding the legal status of the Chief Health Officer’s powers, in particular, whether there is any ‘right to judicial review’ of the CHO’s directives under the Qld legislation.

He also made a few swipes at the government’s claim that the ongoing “limitation on rights” was “necessary”, saying it had provided no “evidence” to support this.

Sounds great, doesn’t it?

Well, not so fast …

On page 8, everything suddenly takes a very dark and dangerous detour.

According to the Commissioner:

“the current framework can be significantly improved …by enacting PANDEMIC LEGISLATION like that in Victoria”.

Wait, what??

Doubling down even further, the Commissioner describes Victoria’s appalling legislation as being “fit for purpose”, and better able to protect human rights than the current arrangement.

The Laws Mr McDougall is referring to, were passed in Victoria late last year.

They insert provisions conferring enormous, additional, and PERMANENT emergency powers on the EXECUTIVE branch of government, OSTENSIBLY to help it ‘respond’ to ‘future pandemics’.

These extraordinary ‘powers’ allow the Premier and senior public health officials to declare a pandemic and impose indefinite lockdowns even if there are no actual ‘cases’ in the country.

Even worse, these draconian, and permanent, powers remove ‘habeas corpus’ and the privilege against self-incrimation.

They also cannot be challenged in the courts.

The Commissioner claims that such PERMANENT ‘PANDEMIC MANAGEMENT’ LEGISLATION ‘similar to Victoria and the ACT’, is more “compatible with human rights”.

Well it may be more compatible with his idea of human rights, but it isn’t compatible with mine.

In fact, the legislation he proposes, comes straight out of the World Economic Forum’s formula for ‘governance change’, and would overturn our traditional democratic processes and replace them with a technocratic ‘RULE BY COMMITTEE model similar to that in the EU.

The EU, you may recall, has a PRETEND ‘parliament’ where members are “elected”, but hold NO power and govern nothing.

All decision-making power rests in the so-called ‘independent’ committees, panels, commissions and roundtables the EU is notorious for.

IT is a sham ‘top down’ system of government, completely antithetical to the true meaning of democracy and ‘rule by the people’.
