Geez mate…that’s the thing about lies. Why stop at one? The chances that 700K US citizens actually died from Covid are about the same that I could safety surf a 5000 foot high tube. The US is the epicentre of the lies. The fear porn is thickest at the heart.

Unless you believe that there’s something about US citizens which has them dying from Covid at an inexplicable rate compared to other places. That meme about the less TV, the less Covid is so true.

US: Pop- 330M Covid deaths 700,000

Nigeria -pop 210M Covid deaths 2000

….that’s the thing about lies. Why stop at one?

Ain’t that the truth, hey blowin.

I reckon you're a liar blowin. Remember when you said 50% of Australians were born overseas? Remember when you said 90% of international student were Chinese? Remember when you claimed the bashing death of a white man by an indigenous man was racially motivated even though there was zero evidence presented in court that that was the case?
Now you were wrong on each occasion. You could have simply put up your hand and admitted getting your facts wrong, but you never did. You failed to correct false statements, which pretty much makes you a liar.

'pretty much' doesn't equate to 'you're a liar'...

Blowin repeatedly makes false statements and refuses to correct them. Making false statements by mistake is OK, but when you refuse to correct them, it's deliberate misleading. On the few occasions I've made mistakes, I've put up my hand, admitted it, and corrected the record.
Like I said, blowin is a liar. Oh and you're an idiot. And no, I won't be retracting that statement.

how many times?

how many times did you suggest ivermectin was only for horses? ...just like a cnn gimp...

and spread the ER ivermectin story ...just like a cnn gimp... ....only to be proven to be just as as ridiculous as a cnn gimp...

I saw a good interview with him on NHK last night. He was up front about the problems and even more up front about the lack of action by those with greater skills and knowledge than he had when he started. Pretty inspiring in terms of the thing that really makes a difference is 100% commitment.

Love that kid, a doer not just a talker…all the best to him. I’d buy those sunnies for sure. Also , pelletised plastics can be added to bitumen for roads that don’t get potholes due to the long chain polymers in the plastics. Something every council should be doing on a local level as the pellet machine is cheap and the plastics plentiful every garbage day. Perhaps write to your local council and send them the video by the Scottish company turning plastic into roads on you tube.

Not sure plastics should be used in roads. They will degrade over time. Where does the plastic go? Check out the video below.

Completely agree. It's not a solution just a temporary stay from the same problem.

I see the local council apply recycled plastics for outdoor use, such as ground cover between hard pathways and trees, the rationale being the plastic bends as tree roots grow. It breaks down from outdoor exposure and washes into nearby gutters and straight to the ocean.

Like planting trees under powerlines: looks good now, but gonna be a problem later.

Agreed that microplastic escaping from road tar is a possible future problem, but the Scottish guy pioneering the idea seems to think at the right levels it’s well and truly bonded and stuck in the bitumen which is also a petro chemical substance.

Facing monsters, you say?

As Andy Fleming explains:

"Some Guy called Vadim excavates the enormous mountain of lies & half-truths created by Sky News Australia's favourite Alt-Right princess, Lauren 'The Great Replacement' Southern.

Note that the squawking parrot Alan Jones is being replaced by British meathead Piers Morgan, & Unkle Rupert decided a while ago that, following the YUGE success of Fox News in Trumplandia, Sky would become the Antipodean franchise (ably assisted, as always, by the hate-machine otherwise known as CrackBook).

So, in terms of extremist and far-right propaganda, things are gonna get worse...a lot worse."

So let me get this straight. You're saying:

1. A few months before covid, Bill Gates invests at least $55m, more like $100m, in BioNTech, the manufacturer of the Pfizer vaccine.

2. Bill Gates has "donated" $318m to the media.

3. covid happens and there is a massive, blanket media blitz of its threat and seriousness.

4. There is mass censorship on all forms of media of people speaking out against covid and its threat and severity, and much of this censorship is implemented by AI "fact checking" algorithms developed by Bill Gates.

5. The overwhelming majority of the vaccinated human population outside of China is vaccinated by the vaccine Bill Gates invested in.

6. We are being coerced to get vaccinated by Bill Gates' vaccine by governments, mostly by being locked out of society if we don't get vaccinated.

Genuine question: Maybe I'm very stupid, naive and narrow minded, but how can this be interpreted in any other way than we are living in the greatest conspiracy of all time and we've had the wool pulled over our eyes on an absolutely monumental, unprecedented scale?

Betcha Vic won't be silent about this latest report from the ABC -

"The latest high-profile casualty is one of the country's biggest sport stars, tennis player Peng Shuai.

Ms Peng went missing earlier this month after claiming on social media that a former member of China's Politburo Standing Committee, Zhang Gaoli, coerced her into sex and that they later had an on-off consensual relationship.

But an email published this week by China's global TV network, CGTN, said to have been sent by Ms Peng to Women's Tennis Association (WTA) chairman Steve Simon, said the 35-year-old was "not missing, nor am I unsafe".

"I've just been resting at home and everything is fine," the email stated.

The email said the allegation of sexual assault was "not true".

If the above were true it would mean that covid was engineered and deliberately released. But by who? Everyone wants to blame China, but I don't think that's likely.
China would be probably the ideal country to release it in, if the aim was to spread the virus worldwide. If China was behind it, they wouldn't release it in their own country for a number of reasons.
The most vulnerable people to the virus are the elderly, and those with pre-existing conditions. The same people are almost all cared for by the government (more so in some countries than others). By releasing a virus which has the potential to reduce the number of people relying on the gov for care, it's a win for that gov.
By releasing the virus in China it makes China look bad internationally. What western country doesn't want that.
Transfer of wealth, look at the $90 billion our gov handed to business. Add top of that how much they're paying for vaccines, then boosters etc.
Tightening control over civilian populations rights and movements.
It would seem that western governments (and their big business / corporate masters).would have much to gain from covid.

* This is not my belief, nor have I heard anyone else say this. There is a chance it could be plausible though...

I really haven't looked into this before, but here's a little more context:

"Since its inception and through 2016, the Gates Foundation has given $41.3 billion in grants globally. In 2016 alone, direct grantee support totaled $4.6 billion. In 2016, the Gates Foundation supported $24 million in media grants."

https://www.cima.ned.org/donor-profiles/bill-melinda-gates-foundation/

So in 2016, grants from the Gates Foundation to 'media' accounted for (if my maths is correct) half of one percent of all grant monies.
