I am not an “anti-vaxxer.”

These five words should be a sufficient answer to any would-be accuser who states that questioning the COVID vaccines is a betrayal of medical science.

No one I know is anti-vaxxer proper.

Only a small portion of whom I’ve discussed COVID-19 vaccinations with are against vaccines.

100 percent of those people, however, are 100 percent against mandatory vaccinations of the vaccine hesitant.

Like me, they are dissenters.

Whether it be a vaccine, euthanasia, or aborting life in the womb, I am opposed to forced or coerced medical procedures.

Bar perhaps NOVAVAX, I also question all rushed, experimental COVID-19 vaccines.

I question the removal of safe-guards.

I question the offer of indemnity to big pharma, and doctors willing to jab-for-applause without consequence or compensation for malpractice.

I question the professionalism and dedication of medical professionals, who, out of fear, don’t fight a system which threatens to cancel them if they utter the words “safe and effective prophylaxis” alongside “Ivermectin,” or “HCQ and Zinc.”

Unfortunately – and somewhat ironically – facts don’t matter to a “believe the science” society with COVID-19 on the brain.

Medical bullying is becoming an acceptable social norm.

Though, I doubt, even if I surrendered doctor patient privileged information the rabid COVID collective would be satisfied.

What they want is a sacrifice. An offering. A violent initiation into their socio-pseudo-religious club.

Nothing shy of total, unquestioning commitment to their new rites and rituals will suffice.

The truth is forfeit if I don’t surrender to my abusive COVID crazy detractors.

All of whom want me to hand over to them private medical information so as to prove my allegiance to their god, before I can travel, buy, sell or earn.

Let’s call this what it is.

COVID communism.

Groupthink and conditioning via platitude propaganda are this new State religion’s liturgy and dogma.

Bad logic, based entirely on false assumptions are used by design to try and force people into complying with its dogma.

This is why those who choose to go against the stream are hit with reckless labels, vis a vis misplaced and vulgar fallacies.

The “vaccine hesitant” have good reasons for being cautious.

For starters, discernment in personal decision making is disallowed.

Secondly, due process is suspended, if not dead or on life support. For example, if you’re labelled an “anti-vaxxer,” you are what they say you are.

Thirdly, (and I’m now repeating myself) informed consent is thrown out the window.

Fourth, no one is allowed a second, independent medical opinion.

This is just the ethical reasoning for caution.

This doesn’t include medical questions about unknown long term side effects.

It doesn’t include the aggressive censorship addressed by myself and Caldron Pool in articles since governments turned the war against the virus, into a war against the people.

Another aspect are the political reasons for caution.

In 2020, Newsweek accused Democrats of “bolstering anti-vax groups.”

Newsweek described how (now disgraced) New York governor, Andew Cuomo, said he wasn’t going to trust anything from the Trump administration.

Cuomo stated,

“Frankly, I’m not going to trust the federal government’s opinion and I wouldn’t recommend to New Yorkers based on the federal government’s opinion.”

The New York Times ran a piece discussing how scientists feared compromising “rigorous regulation” in favour of “speed.”   

The NYT implied that Trump was demanding short cuts with the vaccine in order to win the 2020 election, asserting, “The longer that vaccines are tested before being released, the likelier they are to be safe and effective.”

Notwithstanding head U.S Democrat, Nancy Pelosi claiming to be COVID “vaccinated”, Pelosi is on record saying that rushed vaccines are dangerous.

The Hill noted in August, 2020 that Pelosi was critical of Donald Trump’s “rush” to towards a COVID-19 vaccine.

Pelosi accused Trump of “jeopardizing the health and well-being of the American people.”

In her defence, Leftist funded Fact Checkers” smooth over Pelosi’s words to say they were a rejection of Donald Trump, not the vaccine.

However, when coupled with Democrat vaccine hesitancy, and leftist legacy media’s own pre-Biden presidency hesitancy, Pelosi’s “vaccine hesitancy” is self-evident.

Jump forward four months.

Post Joe Biden’s coronation, Pelosi, who has had COVID-19, is suddenly pro-COVAX.

The House Speaker isn’t beyond using the “vaccine” as a political weapon against “vaccine hesitant” Republicans.

Taking into account the ethical, medical and political reasons for vaccine hesitancy, it’s a stretch call the “vaccine hesitant”, “anti-vaxxers.”

Only a populace drugged into cheering on the deceptive socio-political oppression of Communism would stoop this low.

This new State religion is COVID communism.

Proven by the rush to implement a questionable vax, while suspending, then undermining, and denying civil liberties long guaranteed by the highest law in the land – the Constitution.

Add to this, aggressive – government sanctioned turning of neighbour against neighbour – inconsistency from politicians such as the American Democrats, and Australians like, Pat Cash hater, Peter Fitzsimmons.

Questioning the COVID “vaccines” doesn’t make me, or anyone else who shares my concerns an “anti-vaxxer.”

I’ve never been a bandwagon – jump on the latest trend to be one of the “cool kids” – kind of person.

Like others in my position, I see red flags and want to apply the scientific method to them.

I’m not against vaccinations or the vaccinated.

I’m against the bullying of others because they

a) practice more discernment in their decision making;

b) uphold informed consent;

c) see the wounded and sigh with them;

d) are COVAX hesitant for good reasons, that are falsely labelled as “anti-vaxx.”

The false labels, and double standards from those calling their “vaccine hesitant” neighbours “selfish” do so with emotion, not scientific reasoning.

Those accusing their “vaccine hesitant” neighbours of being “anti-science” better fit that description.

It’s this, juxtaposed with a lack of concern for consent, reasoned based evidence, and contempt for discernment that constantly pushes my B.S meter into the red.

What’s more, register the inconsistencies.

The very same people who scream “don’t force your religion on me,” are content to force this new State religion onto others.

If that’s isn’t the definition of selfishness and hypocrisy, what is?

Where repentance stops, inhumanity begins.

The vaccinated and unvaccinated will join together in a ‘Day of Prayer and Repentance for Australia’ on Saturday 11th December.

The Zoom event, hosted by The Canberra Declaration, is planned to kick off at 9am and finish around 6pm (AEDT).

Organisers said that despite the ‘short notice, they believe the situation is urgent.”

They add, “as such, we extend this invitation to all who are available to join in prayer for our nation.”

People can join at any time between 9am and 6pm on Saturday via the Zoom link: https://zoom.us/j/776881184.

Those who cannot make the Zoom event, are encouraged to ‘pray on the day in whatever way they can, whether individually or by organising or joining a corporate event’ of their own.

The event is a call to prayer and repentance. This is a request for the ‘gift of repentance’, lamenting the downgrade of freedoms in Australia, including the erosion of values, particularly those which aim to affirm life.

Australia is fast becoming a nation of socio-political excess.

Daddy government is replacing Father God.

The termination of both the dying and the unborn is being embraced as “healthcare.”

Abortion up to birth is not just legal, but celebrated. Euthanasia is encouraged over against palliative care.  

Vicious “vaccine” mandates, excessive lockdowns and the indefensible creation of a two-tier society between the “vaccinated” and unvaccinated are symptoms of nation on the precipice of the Abyss.

Add onto this the one-eyed ideological totalitarian takeover of the academy, clergy and bureaucracy; corruption and nepotism in university, church and government.

As Jeremiah, the prophet proclaimed,

“They bend their tongue like a bow; falsehood and not truth has grown strong in the land; Everyone deceives his neighbour, and no one speaks the truth; they have taught their tongue to speak lies; they weary themselves committing iniquity. Heaping oppression upon oppression, and deceit upon deceit, they refuse to know me, declares the Lord.” (9:3-9, ESV)

John Calvin’s admonishment of the condition of Israel in Jeremiah’s day reminds us that ‘false gods were counted as fathers and authors of salvation by the people.”

Some of the practical benefits to come from a National Day of Prayer and Repentance is unity, solidarity and equality; the putting of both citizen and Ceasar before the Lordship of Christ the King, not above it.

In his 1938 sermon, Theologian, Helmut Gollwitzer responded to the horror of Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass) with a call to repentance.

He declared,

“Those who cannot admit their guilt before God can no longer do so before men and women.”

Gollwitzer then stated,

“Thus begins the insanity of persecution that seeks to make the other person into the devil in order to make themselves into a god.”

Leaving the best for last, Gollwitzer admonished the German people, saying,

“Where repentance stops, inhumanity begins; there all common bonds shatter even while one tries to strengthen them through tenacious self-justification and self-pardon.” [i]

There is no greater act of freedom and responsibility than life-changing repentance.

To be raised from a place of brokenness where we tell the world that it does not own us, because in Jesus Christ, God has graciously liberated us from the World’s false claim upon us.

The good book summons us in Proverbs 3:7-8, to live:

 ‘Not wise in our own eyes, [but] to fear [trust] the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh, and refreshment to your bones’

In the words of Jewish liturgical lyricist, R. Yehudah ha-Levi of Spain wrote in the 12th Century,

“Extract us from sin, He Who dwells in the heavens.
As the sun sets, call to those who pass through fire and water.
Next Year in Jerusalem.”

Specific Bible verses for this Saturday’s National Day of Prayer and Repentance are Numbers 14:17-19; Acts 5:31 and 2 Chronicles 7:14.

The event will coincide with, but is not connected to national #Reclaimtheline protests planned for the 12th at 11am.

People are encouraged to join The Canberra Declaration and prayer networks around Australia, for the National Day of Prayer and Repentance, any time between 9am and 6pm on Saturday via the Zoom link: https://zoom.us/j/776881184.

An A4 downloadable poster has also been provided FREE for anyone interested in promoting the day, and the Zoom gathering: An Appeal to Heaven.

A video shared by mRNA inventor, and relentless CCP-19 truther, Dr. Robert Malone, presents a major pushback against the politicisation of medicine, and healthcare, from within the medical professional community.

The original 5-minute video is watermarked with the International Covid Summit logo, and shows the outspoken doctor/scientist presenting a list of statements declaring independence from COVID-era political influences.

The yet to be published, September 12thPhysicians Declaration’ stated,

‘We, the physicians of the world, united and loyal to the Hippocratic Oath, recognising the profession of medicine as we know it is at a crossroad, are compelled to declare the following.’

What follows is a list of acknowledgements targeting government overreach, and the breach of the Doctor/Patient relationship.

Such as,

‘Whereas, it is our utmost responsibility and duty to uphold and restore dignity, integrity, art and science to medicine;

‘Whereas, there is an unprecedented assault on our ability to care for our patients;’

‘Whereas, public policy has chosen to ignore fundamental concepts of science, health and wellness, instead embracing a “one size fits all” treatment strategy which has led to more illness, and death than the individualised, personalised approach to health care […]’

‘Whereas, physicians are increasingly being discouraged from engaging in open professional discourse and the exchange of ideas […]’

‘Whereas, thousands of physicians are being denied the right to provide treatment to their patients, as a result of barriers […] advising their patients to simply go home and return when their disease worsens.’

‘Whereas, the above is not medicine. It is not care. We cannot sit idly while patients are forced to go home and sicken in place. These policies may actually constitute crimes against humanity.’

The declaration then takes the form of a list of resolutions, beginning with,

‘Now therefore, it is, resolved, that that physician-patient relationship must be restored […] that political intrusion into that relationship and the practice of medicine must end […] that physicians must defend their right to prescribe treatment, observing the tenet, “First, do no harm.” […]

The declaration concludes with a resolve to protect the integrity and objectivity of medical science from corruption. Then finishes with invitations to patients, physicians and scientists to join the written protest.

For clarity. Dr. Malone refers to the document as the ‘Physicians Declaration’; an apparent reference to what others are calling the ‘San Juan Declaration.

Malone’s introduction stating that the document was formulated by physicians in Puerto Rico backs this correlation.

Whereas, his Twitter post referred to the document as the ‘Rome Declaration,’ simply because, I assume, it was presented in Rome at the International COVID Summit (Sept.12-14, 2021).

This isn’t to be confused with a declaration signed in Rome earlier this month between G20 health ministers.

G20 Health Ministers gathered in Italy early September to reaffirm a unified response to COVID-19.

In sum, the verbose G20 declaration restates each country’s determination to move from a global “COVID economy” to a global “vaccinated economy.”

The document rehashes the words “safe and effective” ad nauseum, and dedicates long paragraphs discussing buzzwords like “invest”, “coordinate” and “enhance.”

By all appearances, judging on the location, the ‘Physicians Declaration’ is every bit the medical community’s counter-punch to the G20 declaration which appears to share the same “Rome Declaration” name.

Hence the need to clarify which declaration and from whom.

The Physicians Declaration (or San Juan Dec?) isn’t the first move by medical professionals concerned about medical coercion, the hijacking of informed consent, and the irrational political takeover of the physician/patient relationship.

The Great Barrington Declaration, issued in October 2020, is a standing apolitical rejection of government heavy-handedness and government overreach.

Of particular concern is the “one size fits all,” socialist blanket* suffocating people in the name of public health. (*my terminology, not theirs).

The GBD states,

 ‘Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health…’

They add,

‘The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk. We call this Focused Protection.’ 

With what we know about COVID-19, the GBD declares,

‘Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold.’

The GBD was authored by three Ivy League graduate Doctors, is co-signed by 43 other medical professionals, and has over 860,000 signatures.

The Caldron Pool facilitated Ezekiel Declaration aligns with both the Physician’s Declaration and the much earlier Great Barrington Declaration.

To dismiss one as extremist, is to dismiss all three with the same reactionary brush stroke.

Critics continuing to slander the recent Ezekiel Declaration as “extremist” should take note of how poorly criticisms thrown at the GBD have aged.

Alongside this, note how closely related criticisms of the Great Barrington Declaration are to those used to undermine the E.D.

Most notably is The Conversation’s ‘5 Flaws of the GDB.’

It’s author, Professor Stephen L. Archer, claimed that the GBD was wrong for suggesting that governments would be perpetually locking down citizens.

In another jab, Archer claimed that the GBD’s “rhetoric gave oxygen to fringe groups.”

He then stated that the GBD creators (all Physicians) were sacrificing the greater good on the altar of hyper-individualism.

And, the big kicker, the GBD – was supported by Donald Trump, ergo, Archer says, it is ‘naïve and dangerous’ (aka “right-wing extremism”).

Archer finishes by stating that ‘physicians and scientists must be responsible in our pronouncements and not sow mistrust of effective public health measures.’

Those plugged into the controversy over The Ezekial Declaration, won’t miss how Archer’s criticism of the Great Barrington Declaration, reads like a script for the E.Ds own dishonest critics.

Dr. Malone’s ‘Physicians Declaration’ is bound to receive similar criticisms, from the same people, playing the same tune.

Coptic Christian and activist, Ramy Kamel is still incarcerated in an Egyptian prison.

Coptic Solidarity provided an update on Instagram early September stating,

 “Ramy Kamel’s detention was just extended 45 days. Attorney says the purpose for solitary confinement for NEARLY 2 YRS, is to break his mind, cause mental health issues, depression, disease, & ultimately suicide.”

Kamel’s case is amongst the most notable examples of Islamist persecution in the once secular state.

Over the past few decades, the Muslim Brotherhood has successfully deployed a form of lawfare against the Egyptian Christian community.

This has made Copts, who are approximately 10% of Egypt’s population, the equivalent of second-class citizens.

Caldron Pool reported on the plight of Kamel in early December 2020.

This was alongside a September piece called “Jihad of the womb” highlighting the ancient North African Christian community’s struggle for rights under the “convert, pay a tax or die”, cold shadow of Shar’ia law.

Kamel was arrested without a warrant in 2019 on what Middle East Monitor termed as “false charges.”

It’s believed that Kamel’s arrest was related to his outspoken opposition to the widespread persecution and systemic discrimination of Egyptian Christians.

21Wilberforce.org explained, ‘Kamel has been imprisoned and tortured by the Egyptian government simply because he is a religious freedom leader.’

They add,

‘On November 23, 2019, Mr. Kamel was arrested under the cover of dark, around 1:30AM. He was beaten and interrogated without legal representation at the Supreme State Security Prosecution in Cairo’s Fifth Settlement neighbourhood.

‘Just 18 days earlier, he was arrested, transferred in an armoured vehicle to National Security headquarters in Nasr City, and severely beaten and tortured. He was interrogated without legal representation in an effort to compel him to reveal his research sources, and likely to intimidate him prior to participating at the UN Forum.’

Dublin based human rights organisation, Front Line Defenders, confirmed the extension of his incarceration.

The September 6th extension is one of a least two 45-day extensions this year, ordered by Cairo criminal court.

Kamel is charged with “funding a terrorist organisation,” “defamation” and “misuse of social media.”

Front Line Defenders listed government human rights violations against Ramy Kamel as judicial harassment, arbitrary detention, raid, break-in, theft, threats and intimidation.

In a statement on their website, the organisation also affirmed a deep concern ‘regarding the continued detention and health deterioration of Kamel.’

‘We believe,’ they said, ‘he is being solely detained in relation to his peaceful and legitimate human rights activities.’

In June, Coptic Solidarity called Kamel’s continued detention and denial of fair judiciary process, ‘unjust.’

The group reasserted their support, demanding his immediate release along with the ‘dropping of all fallacious charges against him, as stated in [Coptic Solidarity’s] joint letter to Joe Biden.’

This new extension dampens earlier optimism amongst Kamel and his supporters. Many of whom are working towards ending his 20-month imprisonment, much of which has been in solitary confinement.

Although Ramy Kamel is an ocean away, his story should resonate with Westerners facing serious downgrades to their own freedoms.

Particularly in Australia, where, under COVID-19 fiats known as “public health orders”, rogue Premiers, (all seemingly enabled by a weak Prime Minister) are deploying unjust mandates, alongside anti-terrorism laws, and tactics, to sure up their power by waring against Australian citizens.

Such as the unprovoked and violent attacks against unarmed, non-violent, pro-liberty and pro-informed consent protesters in Melbourne this week, by a well-armed, militarised police force.

Another point of relevance is the pending removal of civil rights and civil liberties from the vaccine hesitant – pejoratively referred to by the “vaccinated” as “selfish” and “anti-vaxxers.”

Also noteworthy was U.S President Joe Biden and Victorian Labor leader Daniel Andrews, recent attempts to conflate the virus with the unvaccinated, forgetting the origins of the Wuhan Coronavirus, and falsely calling the crisis, “a pandemic of the unvaccinated.

The “domestic terrorism” and “misuse of social media” charges against Ramy Kamel, are proof that these labels can be an easily used by abusive governments, ecclesial, and civic leaders, to squash dissent, in order to avoid accountability, reasoned opposition, and the truth.

This happened in Australia this week when political leaders (and their enablers in legacy media) employed a blatant misinformation campaign in order to twist construction workers opposing medical conscription, into “thugs,” “neo-Nazis” and “right-wing extremists.”

It won’t be long until conscientious objectors to the current COVID-19 “vaccines” are falsely labelled the same.
