‘Who Is Running The Country And For Whose Benefit?’


This morning/afternoon.

Citing various studies, Chief Medical Officer Tony Holohan said the use of rapid antigen testing, as a means to give people the “green light” to engage in certain activities, could pose several risks.

    The EU has considered 4 possible instances for travelling:
    – if you had the virus
    – PCR test
    – Antigen Test
    – vaccine

    Holohan only quotes studies when they fit his narrative. Why is he ignoring the peer reviewed papers on Ivermectin? Why is he ignoring the lack of ANY evidence that masks and lockdowns work? Why is he so insistent on pushing the more expensive PCR test over the antigen test? Why are the medical dictators now running the world determined to destroy societies, economies and condemn us all to permanent authoritarian restrictions and constant terror, over a disease that has a 1% fatality rate for the majority?

      It is mind-boggling, isn’t it? It’d almost make you believe in some of these conspiracy (Great Reset) theories. However, using Occam’s Razor, where the simplest explanation tends to be the right one, I think we need look no further than basic human nature – in this case, “I’m the king of the castle” syndrome. It can happen even in highly educated, well dressed, well spoken, well paid, well established adults, who made one catastrophic mistake a year ago and want to save face and protect their position by continuing the illusion that they were right, are right, and can do no wrong. They need to be called to account, not only by politicians, but by alternative scientific experts. The inquiry can’t start soon enough.

            Is it really me or is it another one of your dreams. Do I really exist or am I just like Covid 19.

      What peer-reviewed papers on Ivermectin?

    Pure stubbornness and stupidity.

    back last year, Holohan strongly advocated against mask wearing because “people would use them wrong” and “get a false sense of security”.

    Sound familiar?

    Michael McNamara saying that 10’s of millions of Euros are going to a certain lab every month for PCR testing.

    And that the director of that lab sits on NPHET.

    Is that legit?

    That’s scandalous if true – how the hell could he be impartial if that’s the case?

        1. SOQ

          That conflict of interest has been bouncing around for quite a while Mick.

          But sure we’d need a committee, a sub committee, probably double figure reports and at least 4 takers of minutes at every meeting before we’d even consider investigating it.

            When it’s laid out in full like that – over the last 15 months, it’s quite jaw dropping. :(

    while my smear test is going to take up to three months to get a result and I had to sign a waiver that I understood the results aren’t reliable anyway, fuppin joke

    1. Lilly

      Is that not just a signature consenting to the examination? I didn’t have to sign any waiver.

    CMO reports to government.
    Governments chief fear is collapse of the Health system, but not the for the human cost that would mean, simply because they wouldn’t get reelected, or be forced out of office.
    If they can get another lockdown out of this they sure will.
    Easy to to govern. All other business suspended.
    Mee-hole gets passed his handover date and couldn’t care less thereafter.

    Expensive PCR tests deter travel, which could bring in (at speed, they’ll get in anyway) variants which could trigger a collapse of the health system.
    And they’d loose their job.

      Exactly what kinda gobplops are we living amongst,

      that would manipulate a antigen test,

      to get a false positive,

      So They Can Go On A Plane?

        I heard one about a kid doing it so they didn’t have to go to school… obviously a threat to public health…
