The Silent Scream: Hidden Killers in Lockdown

‘Where would we put the sick and dying when the hospital beds ran out?’ 

This comment is laced with accusation, and most of us have heard it – the sentiment being that if you even think that it might be time for the lockdown to end, you are basically begging for the streets to be filled with bodies. 

What this argument fails to acknowledge, however, is that the bodies are already piling up. The only problem is that they aren’t the right kind of bodies. Teen suicides, overdoses, child abuse, mental health, domestic violence victims are all overlooked. Because in our distorted reality, it only appears to matter if your death certificate says ‘COVID-19’.

While we all hide away in our homes and cower at the ‘case numbers’ read out at the frequent press conferences, we fail to see the evidence of a much bigger problem in our own communities. 

People are really struggling. 

One of your neighbours just lost the business he built up from the ground because he can no longer pay the rent. Another is lying on the floor of her daughter’s room every night on suicide watch. That lady you passed in the supermarket may be afraid she doesn’t have enough in her wallet to pay for the few things in her basket. There’s a boy staring at his computer screen convinced he is going to flunk out of school, and another losing himself in the virtual and hazardous world of the internet because he has been starved of the contact of his peers. And sadly, the elderly – those whom we have all worked so hard to protect these past 18 months – lie in bed night after night wondering if anyone will even notice if they don’t wake up in the morning.

But the virus! 

The fact is, when we fixate on case numbers and ICU capacities we fail to remember an undeniable truth. People will die. As Death, the narrator in The Book Thief bluntly says: ‘Here is a small fact: You are going to die. I am in all truthfulness attempting to be cheerful about this whole topic, though most people find themselves hindered in believing me, no matter my protestations.’ 

The question we must ask ourselves is this: which deaths are actually preventable? 

Let’s be brutally honest. COVID-19 has a survivability rate of around 99.8%. There’s a vast array of early treatments that have been proven to be safe and effective. There are vaccines, for those who wish to avail themselves of other treatment options. Will people still die of this virus? The answer is yes, they will. Some of those who are over 75 or have an average of 2.6 comorbidities may still end up succumbing, particularly if they aren’t made aware of the vital importance of prophylactic treatment

While this may sound shocking, it is a reality we must be willing to face. If you really are afraid for your life even in light of these facts, then by all means, take appropriate precautions (or at the very least commit to strengthening your immune system). 

But for the rest of us, why are we being forced to remain at home? Lockdowns have never historically been touted as a responsible solution until we panicked and played ‘follow the blind’ last year. Study after study has shown that lockdowns are inadvisable, likely to cause lasting economic, developmental, health-related and psychological damage. Even the World Health Organisation has recommended that world leaders not use lockdowns as a primary control measure. The worst part is that not only do lockdowns not work, they actually cause additional deaths – deaths that could have been easily prevented. In Canada alone, this has added up to 5,535 extra funerals. While in America, they estimate an extra 0.8 million people will die over the next fifteen years. 

The well-meant compassion for victims of COVID-19 is blinding us from the undeniable carnage that these lockdowns are creating in our communities. Our politicians need to zoom out from this one cause of death and wake up to the reality that plugging the small gap in one area of the ship, while ignoring the gaping hole in the other side of the hull is only going to hasten the total destruction of the entire vessel. 

We are fast taking on water and people are already drowning. 

Let’s not wait until it is too late.

  1. COVID VACCINES – DIRE WARNINGS in this Paper by Seneff & Nigh – damage from these vaccines is potentially catastrophic and transgenerational – and now they have targets on our children.
    The rats will be scurrying from an exploding ship when the population learn the true facts of these shocking experimental covid vaccines – please read these papers – I note today, that already as at 16.9.2021 23,751,922 of these experimental jabs have been coerced/forced on Australians and being mandated for ever increasing population sectors – this grossly violating universal informed consent codes.
    Also Paper from Classen Immunotherapies.

    PLEASE READ THESE PAPERS AS OUR POLITICIANS are incapable of (allegedly) independent and unbiased research as their extreme pro-vaccination lobby involvement/stance proves and allegedly throughout the entire Australian Government Vaccinations Policy is rife with Conflicts of Interest -it’s shocking and they are answerable to no one. Likewise – who in the hell allowed mainstream media empires to be calling the shots and virtual mouthpieces for Pharmaceutical Industry (allegedly) – WRONG WRONG WRONG. They all have to be stopped. Read the Papers – the DIRE WARNINGS.


    Worse Than the Disease? Reviewing Some Possible
    Unintended Consequences of the mRNA Vaccines
    Against COVID-19

    Operation Warp Speed brought to market in the United States two mRNA vaccines, produced by Pfizer and
    Moderna. Interim data suggested high efficacy for both of these vaccines, which helped legitimize Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the FDA. However, the exceptionally rapid movement of these vaccines through controlled trials and into mass deployment raises multiple safety concerns. In this review we first describe the technology underlying these vaccines in detail. We then review both components of and the intended biological response to these vaccines, including production of the spike protein itself, and their potential relationship to a wide range of both acute and long-term induced pathologies, such as blood disorders, neurodegenerative diseases and autoimmune diseases. Among these potential induced pathologies, we discuss the relevance of prion-protein-related amino acid sequences within the spike protein. We also present a brief review of studies supporting the potential for spike protein “shedding”, transmission of the protein from a vaccinated to an unvaccinated person, resulting in symptoms induced in the latter. We finish by addressing a common point of debate, namely, whether or not these vaccines could modify the DNA of those receiving the vaccination. While there are no studies demonstrating definitively that this is happening, we provide a plausible scenario, supported by previously established pathways for transformation and transport of genetic material, whereby injected mRNA could ultimately be incorporated into germ cell DNA for transgenerational transmission. We conclude with our recommendations regarding surveillance that will help to clarify the long-term effects of these experimental drugs and allow us to better assess the true risk/benefit ratio of these novel technologies.

    COVID-19 RNA Based Vaccines and the Risk of Prion Disease
    Classen Immunotherapies, Inc., 3637 Rockdale Road, Manchester
    MD 21102, E-mail:
    J. Bart Classen, MD*
    Development of new vaccine technology has been plagued with problems in the past. The current RNA based SARSCoV-2 vaccines were approved in the US using an emergency order without extensive long term safety testing. In this paper the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was evaluated for the potential to induce prion-based disease in vaccine recipients. The RNA sequence of the vaccine as well as the spike protein target interaction were analyzed for the potential to convert intracellular RNA binding proteins TAR DNA binding protein (TDP-43) and Fused in Sarcoma (FUS) into their pathologic prion conformations. The results indicate that the vaccine RNA has specific sequences that may induce TDP-43 and FUS to fold into their pathologic prion confirmations. In the current analysis a total of sixteen UG tandem repeats (ΨGΨG) were identified and additional UG (ΨG) rich sequences were identified. Two GGΨA sequences were found. Potential G Quadruplex sequences are possibly present but a more sophisticated computer program is needed to verify these. Furthermore, the spike protein, created by the translation of the vaccine RNA, binds angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), a zinc containing enzyme. This interaction has the potential to increase intracellular zinc. Zinc ions have been shown to cause the transformation of TDP-43 to its pathologic prion configuration.
    The folding of TDP-43 and FUS into their pathologic prion confirmations is known to cause ALS, front temporal lobar degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological degenerative diseases.
    The enclosed finding as well as additional potential risks leads the author to believe that regulatory approval of the RNA based vaccines for SARS-CoV-2 was premature and that the vaccine may cause much more harm than benefit.
