That freedom of association also includes items like an owner of a Chinese restaurant wanting to hire only Chinese ancestor folks for a wait staff to preserve a Chinese ambience. Same with a Black barbershop who only wants Black barbers and Black customers.

Australian medical regulator finally relaxes Covid gag order on doctorsBut doctors say the regulatory environment remains 'hostile to individualised care'A directive to health practitioners barring criticism of the Covid vaccines and rollout has finally been dropped by Australia’s medical regulator, AHPRA.On 9 March 2021, AHPRA and the National Boards published a joint statement to help health practitioners “understand what’s expected of them in giving, receiving and advising on and sharing information about COVID-19 vaccination.” This has now been superseded by a general information page on vaccination. ...This was not an empty threat. In the first year of the Covid vaccine rollout (2021-22) AHPRA suspended 21 health practitioners and investigated many more in response to 1,300 notifications relating to Covid and the vaccines.

Vivek Ramaswamy Subject to "Technical Issues" When Talking About CensorshipDec. 15th, 2023 12:45 pmhttps://twitter.com/michaelpsenger/status/1733328375677329525 Hat tip: https://www.coffeeandcovid.com/p/chicken-soup-saturday-december-9 TEXT OF TWEET: During the last GOP debate, this entire discussion on liability for COVID vaccine injuries and the Trump administration’s fast-tracking development of these mRNA vaccines through “Operation Warp Speed” was blacked out, allegedly due to “technical issues.”TRANSCRIPT OF ATTACHED VIDEOTRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: This video is a report on the Republican Primary Debate hosted by News Nation. The full debate, including this part transcribed below, is posted as dated December 7, 2023 on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PpIwZNlBAE. Show description: "Republican presidential hopefuls Chris Christie, Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, and Vivek Ramaswamy take the stage in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, for a pivotal debate on NewsNation, moderated by Elizabeth Vargas, Megyn Kelly, and Eliana Johnson. For analysis, highlights and to watch the full debate, visit https://www.newsnationnow.com/ "TEXT ON SCREEN: This was the 2023, 4th Republican debate [as Vivek Ramaswamy is speaking]VIVEK RAMASWAMI: —competitive market place begins, that's crony capitalism and that's the answer.TEXT ON SCREEN: What you're about to see is exactly what happenedMEGN KELLY: OK. Through Operation Warp Speed, the Trump administration and private industry developed a Covid vaccine in record time....TEXT ON SCREEN: The screen froze, then went blackTEXT ON SCREEN: Then this screen came on with some GOP buzzkill melodyTEXT ON SCREEN: WE'LL BE RIGHT BACKTEXT ON SCREEN: The break last for over 8 minutes.TEXT ON SCREEN: This is what you didn't see.TEXT ON SCREEN: I got the footageMEGYN KELLY: — the Trump administration and private industry developed a Covid vaccine in record time. The program protected the drug companies from virtually all lawsuits over vaccine injuries. The government has a program to compensate for such harm but critics say it is a black hole of bureaucracy. 12,000 claims filed, 10% decided, only 8 payouts so far in a forum with no right to counsel, no hearings, no appeals. Mr. Trump says he's very proud of Warp Speed. Should he be?VIVEK RAMASWAMI: Well this question specifically on liability goes back to actually Reagan, and Reagan is a president who I admire, many of us do. I think that reviving that spirit is in many ways going to be good for this country, in so many ways. But one of the areas where he erred was this special form of lobbying, to say that one kind of manufacturer, a vaccine manufacturer, cannot be sued for their product liability. So I have pledged this part of my legislative agenda, we will repeal that. Just like we will repeal every other form of crony capitalism. People who have been harmed by those vaccines deserve accountability. They cannot be forgotten Americans.And I think one of the top lessons we learned from that covid pandemic is that free speech in this country is most important in those alleged times of emergency. If we had been allowed to openly debate the merits of those vaccines, they would have been never mandated in the way that they were.And in general I don't think that we should want capitalism and democracy to share the same bed anymore. It's time for a clean divorce. Let companies be companies, but I don't like the crony capitalism. This dates back a long time in both parties. And I think that we need to end the lobbying. And I personally believe that if you have been working in the government you should not lobby that government for 10 years. If you have been a government elected official, doing deals with companies, be they Boeing or be they pharmaceutical companies, you should not join the board of that company for 10 years after. The former chairman of the FDA, the lead commissioner of the FDA, ended up on the board of Pfizer. Nikki Haley, that deals with Boeing, ends up on the board of Boeing. I don't care if it's a Republican or Democrat, we need some basic principles that end the corruption in government. That's how we got the health insurance exemptions, that's how we got the pharmaceutical product libaility exemptions—MEGYN KELLY: OK, Thank you.VIVEK RAMASWAMY: — we end the corruption.RON DESANTIS: We need—TEXT ON SCREEN: But people didn't see that, they still saw dead air, then commercials for another 5 minutes2:54[video speeds through the commercials]3:06TEXT ON SCREEN: Then the show came back, it was the final question of the debate...ELIANA JOHNSON: — Alabama. Final question before closing statements, and we want to get you all in, so we're going to get you 45 seconds for this last one. Governor Christie, we're going to start with you. Which former president would you draw inspiration from for your own presidency and why?
Newsguard is a well-financed, shadowy partisan group pretending to be a neutral arbiter of which websites are “reliable” and which are not. While the good news is that I am important enough for them to react to, the bad news is that NewsGuard is angling to declare my blog an “unreliable news source.” I received this email from them:NewsGuard is asking me to “disclose my anti-COVID-vaccine perspective.” At the same time, they are not asking Pfizer-sponsored pro-COVID-vaccine media to disclose their “pro-COVID-vaccine” bias. It's a bit unfair, I would say and shows how flawed NewsGuard’s process is.In any case, do expect my blog to be rated an “unreliable news source” and blocked by major social networks such as Facebook. Oh well.

On January 5th, in Freedom Coalition of Doctors for Choice v. Centers for Disease Control, et al, a Texas federal court gave the CDC a twelve-month rolling deadline to cough up all the “free-text” entries from its V-SAFE vaccine side-effect tracking database.It was surely the most important decision of this year (so far). It may ultimately be ranked among the most important of the pandemic’s court decisions. To start, the Court declined to believe the giga-funded health agency’s sworn affidavit that redacting those side-effect documents would take 59 years.V-safe is similar to but different from VAERS; it is a smartphone-based app allowing vaccine recipients to enroll and report their (or their child’s) health status after vaccination. Users get a confidential registrant number to protect their privacy, and for 12-months after each shot the system regularly sends texts prompting folks to sign in and report how they’re doing. Each check-in collects two types of data: a series of generic check boxes asking high-level questions about pain at the injection site, chills, headaches, et cetera, and a 250-character free-text field where users can type out any other feedback.Any other feedback like myocarditis, rashes, blood clots, strokes, heart attacks, or death. The CDC ensured serious adverse events would be limited to the difficult-to-search free text field and not show up in an easy-to-check box.By the time the CDC suddenly and unexpectedly pulled the plug on the V-safe program last May, it had collected 7.8 million text entries.Despite initially promising to promptly make the V-safe data public, the CDC has instead been guarding the V-safe data like it is made out of gold. CDC stubbornly refused to release any V-safe data — privacy! — except on a limited basis to a couple friendly teams of CDC-affiliated scientists. It released the ‘check the box’ part of the data in September 2022 to ICAN — but only after a lawsuit and a court order. In January of last year, the Plaintiff in this case asked the CDC for the free-text entries.It’s taken a full year.One of the most remarkable things about last week’s order was how skeptical the judge seemed about nearly everything the CDC said. The public’s loss of trust in the health agency apparently extends to the judicial branch. Judges are part of the public, after all. The order even referenced the disgraceful loss of trust, ironically noting that “While 'Trust the Science’ became something of a national slogan, the American public’s trust in science and scientists are at an all-time low.”Ouch!The Plaintiff is a non-profit formed specifically to get the V-safe data and make it available to the public on its website, www.drsforchoice.org. Now that they have an order, the first batch of V-safe entries should be released to the public on February 15th.Warning signs for the CDC started appearing early in the order. In addition to snarking about the CDC’s loss of public trust, by page 12 (out of 30), the court had also footnoted Francis Collin’s recent mea culpa, where the NIH director loonily admitted that public health people shouldn’t be in charge of important decisions. ...Next, the Court began using skeptical language suggesting it thinks the CDC lies like a rug, or a dog, or a Pelosi. The Court considered the CDC’s sworn claim that it would take one of its analysts fifty-nine years to review all the 7.8 million text entries for private information, which came to 650,000 pages, and said, yeah, that’s your own fault:To this lawyer’s eyes, that last comment about overestimating — wholly unnecessary to the order — stuck out like a sore injection site. The Court didn’t just say the CDC overestimated the number of pages; it said the CDC excessively overestimated the number of pages.That’s how the judge calls you a liar without calling you a liar.Then the Court began analyzing whether forcing the CDC to cough up the V-safe data was in the public interest, and here is where the order really began to soar. ..Now let’s consider some of the order’s implications.First of all, we know this must be bad news for the jabs because, had the V-safe data shown the vaccines were safe and effective, the CDC would have already released the data. (We can ignore the CDC’s bogus claims about its alleged 59-year effort to review the data, since the court already dealt with that.) It is vexing that a publicly-funded health bureaucracy used taxpayer money to protect big pharma from the reality of its defective products by dragging out the release of this information for two years.But the data is finally coming out. Add this order to the list of other eye-popping disclosures last week. It’s starting to look like 2024 could be a lot more productive — and a lot less apocalyptic — than we thought.
Did you see what happened last Monday night after Donald Trump won a landslide victory in Iowa?Rachel Maddow announced that MSNBC would not be covering Trump’s victory speech, and CNN cut away after just a few minutes of it. Why was that?According to Maddow, it’s because Trump and his supporters are fascist, and Trump spreads misinformation.
Russia's State Duma on Wednesday passed the first stage of a bill allowing the confiscation of property from those convicted of a number of crimes including spreading "deliberately false information" about the Russian army.The measure will also apply to those found guilty of "discrediting" the armed forces, calling for sanctions against Russia or inciting extremist activity.The Duma, parliament's lower house, passed the bill in the first of three required readings by 395 votes to 3.It would allow the state to seize the property of Russians who have left the country and have criticised the war in Ukraine, but who continue to rely on revenue from renting out their houses or apartments in Russia.Since sending its army into Ukraine in February 2022, Russia has intensified a long-running clampdown on all forms of political dissent. Under laws passed in March of that year, discrediting the armed forces or spreading false information about them are already punishable by long jail terms.
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Several outraged Republican senators have summoned Big Tech CEOs to D.C. after outrageous censorship of breaking news that could hurt the Biden campaign. Senators are vowing to hold these powerful oligarchs accountable by dragging them in front of a committee and saying mean things to them."It's time these Big Tech big shots march right over here and answer to us!" said Senator Lindsey Graham. "Boy, those CEOs must be quaking in their boots right now! We'll probably call them an 'embarrassment' or even a 'disgrace' if we're feeling extra feisty!" According to sources on Capitol Hill, senators are writing some really good questions with extra harsh language to make the tech CEOs squirm in their seats."It's gonna be awesome," said Senator Graham. "After we question them all day, we'll send out some really cool clips to play on the YouTube with titles like 'FURIOUS Lindsey Graham RIPS into Twitter CEO.' Everyone will be like, 'WOW! Lindsey really let that guy have it!' It will be so epic." Senators are also really looking forward to starting new fundraising campaigns encouraging voters to donate money to stop Big Tech censorship."Big Tech will be sorry they messed with us!" Tweeted one senator minutes before being suspended on Twitter.
So, the German authorities have filed an appeal to overturn my acquittal in criminal court last week. Apparently, their plan is to keep putting me on trial until they get a judge who is willing to convict me of something, or to bankrupt me with legal costs. Silly me, for a moment there, I was actually starting to believe this was over.Let me quickly review how I got here for anyone just tuning in.I am an author and a political satirist and commentator. In August 2022, I posted two Tweets criticizing mask mandates and making fun of Karl Lauterbach, Germany’s Minister of Health. Both Tweets included an image from the cover artwork of my latest book, The Rise of The New Normal Reich: Consent Factory Essays, Vol. III (2020-2021).The German authorities did not appreciate those Tweets, so they (1) had them censored by Twitter, (2) had Amazon ban my book in Germany, and (3) dragged me into criminal court and prosecuted me on trumped-up “hate crime” charges.Last week, a judge acquitted me of those charges, after which she launched into a tirade in which she insulted me at some length, and then strapped on a “Covid mask” and stalked out of the courtroom. During her diatribe, she made a big show of proclaiming that, by acquitting me of the fabricated hate-crime charges, she was proving that “Germany is not a totalitarian state” … you know, the kind of totalitarian state where books are banned, political speech is censored, and dissident authors are harassed by the police and subjected to ridiculous show trials.
The Biden administration pressured Amazon to censor books related to COVID-19 vaccines in early 2021 citing concerns that the material contained “propaganda” and “misinformation,” internal company emails released by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) appear to show.
Eventually, because I wasn’t making nearly enough income as a freelance journalist, I became a Substack author. So Substack actually offered me, and thousands of other writers, a work-around. For me, this work-around was prompted largely by Facebook censoring all my Covid posts. (Since few news organizations were paying me for articles, the only place I could publish my writing was via Facebook posts.)One might ask why Facebook went “all-in” or Orwellian Censorship. In my opinion, this was also the result of a work-around, one that traces back to how everything changed - seemingly overnight - when a “deadly” new pandemic was declared.The government - and/or the world’s Shadow Rulers who tell the government what to do - clearly wanted everyone in the world to panic over Covid. Among other desired results, mass fear of death would make almost everyone rush out to get a new mandated or coerced “vaccine.”However, the government wouldn’t get the mass panic it needed - and thus its new mRNA vaccines - if people like me were making copious posts on Facebook saying, “The Pandemic is a scam! Don’t trust the experts!”The government’s work-around was to create a massive Censorship Industrial Complex which would silence potentially influential dissenters like myself. Facebook bought into this program since its CEO, Mr. Zuckerberg, was smart enough to know he should stay on the good side of the world’s 900-pound gorilla.So the government’s Covid work-around (We have to censor people so we can get our vaccines) sent me scurrying to the sanctuary of Substack as my own micro work-around.
Globalist lawmakers in Canada are pushing a disturbing new piece of legislation that seeks to jail members of the public who question the “Net Zero” agenda of the unelected World Economic Forum (WEF).The push aims to tackle so-called “climate skepticism” as governments around the world scramble to meet the WEF’s “Net Zero” goals.The legislation, Bill C-372, was introduced by Canada’s left-wing socialist New Democratic Party (NDP).Under the bill, the promotion of fossil fuel use will be outlawed with restrictions similar to tobacco advertising applied.Those who speak in favor of fossil fuels, or criticize plans to eliminate them, will face massive fines and possible prison time.
