Unreachable

First up this week is a bevy of Covid stories including David Starkey’s assertion that vaccines should be compulsory; the new head of NHS England’s misleading claim that there are currently 14 times as many Covid patients in hospital as there were this time last year (when, in fact, there are fewer) and former Health Minister Matt “I Snogged at the Office” Hancock’s Telegraph comment piece saying the case for insisting all health workers are vaccinated is “unanswerable.”

We also talk about the ‘unholy trinity’ of moral causes – Covid, Climate and Social Justice – being used by governments to exert more and more control over their populations and before Culture Corner we find out why our producer never seems to get a reply to his emails to James.

Finally, we take in Midnight Mass (Netflix), Invasion, season two of The Morning Show (both Apple TV+) and American Crime Story: Impeachment.”

This week’s opening sound is former US President Barack Obama at COP26.

    This promises to be an exceptional podcast.

    There is some lunatic meme going around that it is the “anti-vaxxers” who have caused the deaths of 700,000 US COV fatalities.

    So by Dec 31st 2020,  our government released a figure of 500,000 American deaths in 2020 – before there was a vaccine available. Leaving aside for the moment that so many deaths that were not really COV-related but became COV reported deaths, there is no way any group of people can be responsible for people dying last year due to a belief the vaccines are unsafe.

    The vaccines were not even available last year – except around Dec 15th or so.

    We in the USA need to Quo Warranto dissolve the charters American Medical Association (AMA) for conspiracy to defraud the public of medicine (Ultra Vires) as a non-profit to make money for Big Pharma corporations.

    It is now a matter of survival.

    What! James doesn’t look at the Ricochet comments. He doesn’t know what he’s missing. Literally. 😉

    When they’re really good I pass them along. And I text them, not email them!
