Vaccination status is temporary, boosters for life required

Major health organizations across the world have changed several definitions of medical terms, including the definitions for "vaccine," "herd immunity" and "pandemic," which in turn have a significant impact on everyday life. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now considering changing the definition of "fully vaccinated"

Israel and Australia have already pushed back the goal post. Citizens must get a booster at six months after their second jab or lose all "passport freedoms." Australian premier Daniel Andrews has actually stated that, going forward, life for the vaccinated will "be about the maintenance of your vaccination status"

Updating the definition of "fully vaccinated" will also have the side effect of skewing mortality statistics, giving government another round of ammunition for false claims. We've been repeatedly told that we're now in a pandemic of the unvaccinated, and this lie will gain new traction once fully vaccinated people are dropped into the unvaccinated category, six months after their last dose

The National Basketball Association is urging players who got a single-dose Janssen shot as recently as two months ago to get a Pfizer or Moderna booster, or face game-day testing starting December 1, 2021. Players who completed a two-dose regimen are being told to get a booster at the six-month mark

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is already talking about expanding its COVID-19 vaccine rule, so that small businesses with fewer than 100 employees may also be required to force the jab on their employees or face stiff fines. The public comment period closes December 6, 2021

China reports lowest birth rate in decades

China has reported its lowest birth rate since 1978: 8.52 births per 1,000 people in 2020, and these numbers are getting dangerously close to the death rate.

According to the Yearbook 2021, published by the country's National Bureau of Statistics at the weekend, the death rate last year was 7.07 per 1,000 people. That means that the natural growth rate of the population is at a record low level of 1.45 compared to 3.32 in 2019. The birth rate has been in steady decline since 2016 after decades of family planning policies and the changing economic climate.

According to census data released by China in spring, 12 million babies were born in 2020, the lowest number since 1961. With people aged 60 and over accounting for 18.8% of the 1.4 billion population, China faces a major problem of an aging population.

New York City Hall gets rid of Thomas Jefferson statue

A statue of former U.S. President Thomas Jefferson is pictured in the council chambers in City Hall.
A statue of America's third president, Thomas Jefferson, which has resided in New York's City Hall for 187-years, has been removed because he owned slaves, with workers boxing it up and dragging it out the back door on Monday.

The statue's unceremonious removal came after the Public Design Commission voted to send it from City Hall to the New York Historical Society, where a plaque will be added to it to provide historical context.

The monument had been present in City Hall for 187 years, but recently members of the council's Black, Latino and Asian Caucus publicly stated their opposition to its continued display and called for a vote on its removal due to Jefferson's history as a slave owner.


Protests against Covid-19 restrictions rage across Europe

riots Rotterdam covid

Rioters torched cars in Rotterdam on Friday evening in protest over new COVID-19 restrictions.
Seven people have been arrested after rioters clashed with police in The Hague for a second night of violence in the Netherlands, sparked by protests over new COVID-19 restrictions.

The unrest came a day after police opened fire on protesters in Rotterdam amid what the port city's mayor called "an orgy of violence", leaving three people seriously injured after they were hit by bullets. Police said investigations are under way to establish if the shots were fired by officers.

In The Hague on Saturday night, young people set fires in the streets and threw fireworks at officers.

Police said in a tweet that seven people were arrested and five officers were injured, while one needed treatment in a hospital following the clashes.

Nurse shortage due to vaccine mandate shuts Long Beach barrier island's ONLY ER

south nassau
A Long Island hospital has been forced to shut down a satellite emergency room because of a staffing shortage.

Vaccine hesitancy is having a direct impact on health care in the city of Long Beach. The barrier island's only emergency department stopped taking patients Monday, CBS2's Carolyn Gusoff reported.

Sal Gaimalveo was one of the last patents seen at the Long Beach ER before operations shut down at 3 p.m. due to a shortage of vaccinated nurses.

"It's horrible. So what? Are we going to be transferring everyone to Oceanside?" Gaimalveo said.

Comment: As these vaccine mandates come into effect, it's likely that many more critical professions will go dangerously understaffed, as well as industries essential to the economy, and, in turn, more people will suffer from these mandates than would from the coronavirus itself; as was the case with lockdowns.

With that in mind, it's possible that the establishment pushing these mandates may need to back off, just enough, because, otherwise, who's going to run things? And check out SOTT radio's: NewsReal: Rejecting The Cure - Massive Freedom Rallies Around The World

The Future is Here, And it Will be Filled With Endless Looting, Rioting And Civil Unrest

Nordstrom ransacked
Our civilization is crumbling right in front of our eyes. We have become accustomed to soaring murder rates, mass shootings, extreme degeneracy throughout the entire entertainment industry, violent rioting in our streets and severe corruption on all levels of government. To a certain extent, a lot of these things seem "normal" to many of us at this point. But the truth is that what we are experiencing is not even close to "normal". We are literally watching our entire society slowly but surely go down the tubes, and it is heartbreaking to watch.

If you think that I am being overly dramatic, just consider what happened in northern California on Saturday night. A mob of more than 80 thieves wearing ski masks and armed with crowbars suddenly descended upon a Nordstrom store, and they ransacked the entire place in just minutes...
More than 80 people stormed and robbed a Nordstrom in California on Saturday night, according to a police report from the Walnut Creek Police Department.

The robbery was over within minutes as thieves armed with crowbars and wearing ski masks streamed out of the Nordstrom into the dozens of cars lining the block.

Comment: The author's overall point is sound, but he's conflating two different strains of 'unrest' here: the former is committed by a particular demographic of society that is EMPOWERED TO COMMIT CRIMES by governments and other authority figures going 'off the leash', while the latter is reacting to the CRIMINAL/TOTALITARIAN ACTIONS OF THOSE AUTHORITIES.

'A house of sexual assault': How private school student Christopher Belter avoided jail despite string of sex crimes

Christopher Belter Jr at a hearing in 2019
"If Chris Belter was not a white defendant from a rich and influential family, it is my belief he would surely have been sentenced to prison."

That was what lawyer Steven M Cohen said on Tuesday when his client's rapist Christopher Belter Jr, 20, was sentenced to eight years of probation despite pleading guilty to sexually assaulting four girls when he was 16 and 17 years old.

Belter, the son of a successful lawyer and formerly a student at a $15,200 (£11,280) a year Jesuit high school in upstate New York, had already broken his parole conditions before, yet was spared jail by Judge Matthew Murphy this week.

Comment: It's certainly bizarre that he didn't receive a harsher sentence given the seriousness of his crimes, the violation of probation, and the high risk of him reoffending. Despite what the judge said, 8 years of probation does not seem like an appropriate sentence. Money talks?

Israel begins mass vaccination of youngest age group yet, 5-11 year olds

Israel has begun administering Covid-19 vaccines to kids aged between five and 11, the youngest age group yet to be approved for the jabs, with tens of thousands of immunizations scheduled for youths in the coming days.

Health officials said "several hundred" children in the five to 11 age group were vaccinated on Monday, as cited by the Times of Israel, noting that another 24,000 are booked for their shots on Tuesday, or about 2.5% of those eligible in the younger demographic.

"The disease is mild [in children], but there are cases where the disease can continue with long-term symptoms such as insomnia and muscle aches," Israel's Covid-19 czar Salman Zarka told reporters, adding "Along with protecting children, the vaccine provides a solution to a normal and uninsulated life. It will help parents get back to normal."

Comment: Would parents really be willing to sacrifice their children's health so they can 'get back to normal'? Do these parents not see that life is never going back to normal?

Comment: Earlier this October, China began injecting children as young as 3 years old. Since children are at near zero risk of harm from Covid, any vaccination campaign is exposing them to a totally unnecessary risk of harm, however, it's important to note that this was a limited roll out, and China isn't using the highly experimental mRNA jabs like Israel.

With that in mind, considering the documented surge in deaths when young adults were targeted in Israel, it's possible we could begin to a see a similar rise in injury and death in those children who are made to suffer these injections.

War on Domestic Terrorism: FBI raids house, terrorizes family of mom who protested local school board, elections

Sherronna Bishop

Sherronna Bishop has been active in school board politics throughout Colorado and operates a website that helps educate parents nationwide about their children’s education.
An FBI SWAT team raided the home of an activist mother of four in Colorado on Tuesday, Nov. 16, knocking down her door, bursting into the house with guns and handcuffing her while she was homeschooling her children.

This is the first known case of the federal government making good on its promise to not only intimidate but actually carry out a raid on a mom who was involved in her local school board politics, said Brannon Howse, who interviewed Sherronna Bishop at Lindell TV Wednesday night.

The U.S. Department of Justice and Attorney General Merrick Garland issued an Oct. 4 memorandum directing federal, state and local law enforcement to look for parents to prosecute nationwide who may have made "threats" and made "harassing" phone calls to school board members nationwide, equating such parents to domestic terrorists.

Now a mother, Sherronna Bishop of Grand Junction, Colorado, has felt the brute force of the FBI's heavily armed SWAT unit used against her family.

She was at home with her three children about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday when she heard someone pounding on the front door, then using a battering ram to break it down. She said the officers "manhandled" her 18-year-old daughter, pulling her up the stairs by her hoodie, while another officer put her in handcuffs and ushered her out of the house. They proceeded to search the entire house.

UPDATE AS OF NOV. 19: The FBI has filed no charges against Bishop.


The Proximity Principle: Uniting local farmers with local buyers - The imperative of our time

Local Farmers
Independent small- and medium-sized farms have been handed a death sentence by Klaus Schwab, head of The World Economic Forum. Schwab, and fellow architects of top-down control, have officially let it be known that under the policy known as 'Green Deal', traditional family farms are no longer wanted and the foods they produce are to be replaced by laboratory and genetically engineered synthetic lookalikes. This policy is spelled out in the pages of Klaus Schwab's book The Great Reset which is part of the envisaged 'Fourth Industrial Revolution'.

The British government and the European Commission are committed to adopting this insane agenda in which working farmers are to be replaced by digitalised precision robots, as part of a so called Global Warming mitigation crusade. When properly analysed, this is revealed as a totalitarian programme for complete corporate and banking control of the food chain. A programme that is designed to eliminate the independent farmer.

What are we going to do about it?

There is a very straightforward answer to this question. We are going come together at the local level and launch a mutually supportive initiative which will guarantee both the farmer and the purchaser of the farmer's food a fair and mutually beneficial exchange.
