My old man passed away last weekend, found in his car which had veered off the road only a few hundred metres from his house, he was 67. They presume he was taking himself off to hospital as he was a stubborn old school bloke who would never want to bother anyone.
He had suffered a major stroke 4 years ago but had recovered well and was on medication and taking it. He had mentioned not being able to sleep properly and trouble breathing the last couple weeks, went to the doctor about 5 days before passing and was told he had a chest infection. Antibiotics were prescribed and he was taking them. Doctor said he didn't quality for testing for covid-19, which I'm having trouble getting my head around as the government here in sa is encouraging anyone with mild symptoms to get checked.

This is a great read on that Plandemic movie, last half of article is experts in their field debunking it all..

"The coronavirus pandemic has brought out a whole slew of interesting human tendencies, including a veritable tsunami of conspiracy theories. Like, holy cow, folks. When did everyone start pulling out their tinfoil hats?

There are several reasons for this, from the emotional and psychological needs that conspiracy theories fulfill (especially during such an uncertain time), to the intellectual habits that enable people to fall prey to such theories.

And of course, there's always a shred of truth in any conspiracy theory, which pulls people in. But just as a shred of fabric doesn't make a shirt, a shred of truth in a conspiracy theory doesn't make it credible or true.

By now, you've undoubtedly seen or at least heard about the Plandemic video making the rounds. YouTube keeps taking it down because of its policy against spreading harmful misinformation about the coronavirus, but that of course just fuels the fire of conspiracy theorists who think the truth is being silenced. The good news is that the claims in the video have been debunked many times over at this point. The bad news is that the people who need to see these debunkings have probably not even read this far into the article, and are definitely not going to take the time to read and process what we share past this point.

But we're gonna go ahead and share these well-cited debunkings anyway, because facts matter, sources matter, not all opinions are equal, and we can't keep letting paranoid theories that don't hold up to scrutiny and can't be backed up with well-done science go unchecked.

(And yes, there is such a thing as well-done science. The scientific world has spent many, many decades improving and systematizing processes for checking data, replicating studies, peer-reviewing findings, etc. so that we have a good idea of what science we can trust and what science is not credible. The only way to refute well-done science is to toss the entire systematized scientific process out the window and instead listen to random individual scientists who refuse to accept that their work was shoddy. Not all scientists are credible, and if a scientist is publishing their opinion outside of the scientific community—especially via YouTube—you should immediately be skeptical and look for whether or not their claims have been debunked by well-done science.)

Case in point, Judy Mikovitz, the scientist at the forefront of the Plandemic video.

Since there are so many clear refutations of the claims in that video and there's no need to reinvent the wheel, we're just going to share a bunch of them with you. Off we go:

- Here's an explanation from Kat Montgomery, a surgical pathology fellow in the Department of Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center."

Then click the link, for various experts in their fields debunking all the crap in this video.

Honestly i found it pretty boring lasted about 2 minutes and flicked through the rest which was all just so blah, all i saw was some guy trying too hard to build up his very low (373) subscriber list, i mean just his channel name "the Truth" screams desperation.

I didn't even find it funny, so please dont tell me this is you and your channel?

The tittle was the funniest thing though and 20 seconds in

"What It's Like to Believe Everything the Government and Media Tells You"

Firstly it's not governments and media we believe, it's experts in their field that we believe, governments and media are just the messengers.

And well it kind of makes more sense than blindly believing random dudes in Youtube channels or guys that think the world is controlled by lizard people, or washed up quacks with very dodgy past that are easily debunked..

Thank you all very much for the kind messages. I'm not sure why I decided to share it on here, was laying awake early in the morning reading some swellnet forums and decided to write what I was thinking. After a brief couple day bender I've decided to stay off the beers for a while and keep the fitness up and be stronger better version for my kids. I enjoy reading the views and priceless experience of many on here. Thanks again.

[ Public Notice ]
13th May CovidSafe App relaunch with all States approval.
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-05-13/coronavirus-australia-live-news-c...

Note: At time of Launch 'only' SA Health has a hurried Covid Safe app link
Rest of Oz couldn't give a shit about the app!

Health Minister Launch : Claims a Test/s of actual tracing ?...SA we presume.
https://7news.com.au/lifestyle/health-wellbeing/coronavirus-restrictions...

Here's how it works (Very simple)
https://covid-19.digitalhealth.gov.au/i-have-symptoms

tbb will explain how your govt's app is corrupt & sold out > Not secure!
In fact lets follow the money trail...right now.

Basically all Hospital / Health correspondence is pushed via the app / phone.
There is nothing suss...perfect way to start the game with trendy cartoons.
Only now yer Doctor-Patient privacy has been sold out by Govt > Telehealth.

From here we are directed to use phone Contact.
All former confidential Oz Health is now via Telehealth...sounds trustworthy.
Only it's not Govt Owned & was recently primed by PBS to the tune of $500m.
https://www1.racgp.org.au/newsgp/professional/racgp-secures-500-m-to-hel...
https://www.greghunt.com.au/australians-embrace-telehealth-to-save-lives...
Telehealth is owned by Corps - Mining /health insurers/Chemists/Apps/ Security.
In fact HCF/China boast 30% of Telehealth BloodTest results.
Telehealth need access to My Health to provide all current results & Appointments.

Are we all up to speed...MY Health sold Your Health to Telehealth Tubbies Ok!

(Warning this Covid Safe App sellout only gets more sleazy...)
Only if you wish to proceed...Now click yer test on Govt Web Page
https://covid-19.digitalhealth.gov.au/home/respiratory-clinics
Note you must select from (Designated regional Respiratory Clinics) Got that!
Now! What do you see, all Clinics use [ Hot Doc ] Telehealth Results/Appointments.

Not Oz Govt...(Zero Security) These guys feed PM's AWS State Health Units.
Hot doc is an Australian "Start Up" but funded by a US Billionaire.
Ok tbb! Who is this mystery CovidSafe app go between Spy Billionaire.

His name is Tim Draper!
(The Bit Coin Guru)
Ancestry Dot com > He needs you to donate blood?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QpZ_h-1u94

But our Govt swore it would be 100% Covid Safe?
tbb explained...Govt must lie about security or face 10 years jail. It's the law!
It's never been an option for a Minister to divulge what we openly share here.

Any fool can see the corruption & gaping holes in the Covid Safe app.
None of this here info is secret...no downloads,passwords,apps,subcriptions.
Media would take an hour to expose the Govt...but Govt are now their #1 clients.
tbb is not saying Govt paid BitCoin Guy $500m to Spy on you! Govt are advertising it!

Q: So what is the true State of Oz Cyber health, as if it mattered? (Glad you asked!)
A: (Here's that report you never asked for!)
Apparently they can now either add cancer or rub it out.(Both if you like!)
https://www.hospitalhealth.com.au/content/technology/article/health-syst...

Here's an encyclopedia on how Govt can track yer app. (How many is that now?)
https://content.sciendo.com/view/journals/popets/2019/3/article-p50.xml

[Disclaimer] tbb never owned or knows nothing about mobile phones or apps!
So don't go thinking any of this is half of what you think it is...it's much worse.

August 2018 Dutto fitted Biometric truancy Cams in Kid's Classrooms.
https://www.biometricupdate.com/201808/australian-schools-testing-facial...
Note: AWS amazon as the spies...
These mass perverts still hang around schools peddling these pedo cams...
https://www.looplearn.net/
Spying for Dutto & crew to cease paying DV victims their Family allowance..
https://www.zdnet.com/article/victorian-government-pushes-back-on-in-cla...
Dutto: "What's yer excuse for being late little girl?"
Little Girl: "PM gave my STFAH dad lots of beer money so he punched my face in!"
"Then had to buy some more make up on the way to school, so sorry Mr Dutto Sir!"

Qld schools allow seniors mobile phone use...yeah! Qld?
Dumbass Dutto rubs hands & set the app target age to pedo.
Durr! Other states ban mobiles due to bullying + Qld kidz phones are set to off by default.
As a result! No Teachers instruct 15+ Seniors (schoolies) to engage with the app
This half arsed Govt app disease spread to all State Health...'App! What app!'

Strange how Govt's highest paid covid prostitutes(The Media) whip up frenzy.
Recap: All State's Health & Education & GP's have never ever mentioned Covid Safe app?
That screams Volumes of apathy...think what you like but that is the dead set truth on the app.

Yet Govt say State Public Health Units are the prime movers of the APP.
Govt pre paid media advertising app has no State Govt Health/Education backing.

NZ PM / WHO - Oz #1 / (Apple/Google) all reckon the Oz Govt app is shit!
In fact Oz Govt said they will dump the stupid app when adopting the new app.

The App rewrite...read the [ PIA 3.19.4 ] fine print!
*It's not compulsory to download the App.
*However you may be required to 'run' the App in this Store & in that work place!
You see how the App Robots reverse the non compliance onto the human beings.

Here's another example of Covid doublespeak.
PM: 'Australian Currency remains legal tender throughout the Lockdown.'
Govt grants the right to every Council, Bank, Store to refuse Legal Australian tender.

Govt grants the right to a nondescript 3rd party to deny entry to Public Utilities!
*First Display intention as a [Condition of Entry] Who reads Car Park Conditions!

eg: [ No Admittance ] Footwear requirement, Child's Bus Pass, Surf Club Sign in!

*Employees are empowered to require you to assist in displaying personal items.
Private Hand Bag or unwrapping food even uncapping a drink for inspection.
Only rule being they must not touch you unless provoked.
If you refuse, the Employee has power to evict you or fellow employee. (No Return / Sacked)
As we see throughout covid ...complete nobodies are bossing every town.

Store employees have long 'accessed' & tracked customer's phones thru stores / malls.
Public/Store/Gigs differ...re: Security reports illegal Photography / Voice recording.

[Condition of Entry] Cam zooms to non compliant app phone > inspection > you're banned.
A close neighbour of mine was [banned from local shop!] Never charged of a store crime.

In other words...shoppers are to openly comply or accused as guilty by indiscretion.
Guilty by Cam was outta control with Covert lockdown & heaps were found innocent
No law about making customers 'feel' oppressed to admit Guilt over an app or cam.
Fact: Police are taught > No mobile phone >[ code red ] > tbb & mum run & gran..run faster.

tbb has had Airport pat downs/luggage searches in US,Haw,NZ,WA,Tas,Nsw,Qld
Funny as family see tbb as a hoodoo & dump me at the gate #...see ya onboard, loser! 'MUM!'
Break souvenirs & lose luggage ...Consider tbb had all pre approvals & transit paid.
Fed Airport Police have exclusive powers insisting display of phone & passwords.

Bully PM held Oz to ransom with his fake Covid app cure claims (see: 10yrs jail) Seriously!

Companies now mandate PM's 'lawful direction'. Yet another Power breach by Bosses.
Strathfield Council: "You are required to download the app to speed up the process of loosening covid restrictions!"
Business Council will encourage staff to "download the app to ensure workers & customers are safe!"

Expect 1000 more Kings'n'Queens parroting Bit Coin Ancestry.com blood tests.
Their loyal subjects are little more than canapes...daftest thing tbb has ever seen.
