TOP 5 Rebel News Scrums at WEF in Davos

Last week I led a team of seven Rebel News journalists in covering the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland. Despite not being officially accredited to enter the conference, the Rebel News team managed to gain access to some of the wealthiest and most influential people in attendance. We wanted to be part of the small number of journalists who will actually hold these people to account.

Ten Topics You’ll Rarely Hear Discussed Openly and Rationally on Mainstream Media

Sometimes the silencing of dissenting viewpoints is achieved through overt censorship – as we saw when Facebook suppressed arguments that entertained the Wuhan lab leak hypothesis, or when Twitter censored pretty much any assertion that could be construed as even slightly disfavourable to Covid vaccines. But more often than not, it is achieved by refusing to give any airtime to arguments from “the other side.” In many ways, this is more sinister than overt censorship, because it is subtle and may easily go completely unnoticed.

I have had personal experience of this “from the inside,” so to speak. I used to write ocassionally for a prominent national newspaper in Ireland, as well as a regional newspaper in Spain. Soon after I began to seriously question Covid measures or the science behind lockdowns, my contributions at both newspapers ceased to be published, quite abruptly. There was simply no editorial interest in questioning the fundamentals of the national response to the virus.

The average newspaper reader or TV viewer knows nothing of this filtering process. They just pick up the newspaper or switch on the TV and assume that there are “serious” people and experts who will be given a platform to express themselves. They will naturally assume that if no credible voice defends this or that position, it must be because the position is weak or indefensible. It will not occur to the average reader or viewer that the reason there are no “credible voices” on the other side is because they have been filtered out in advance…

Hindsight: what were the odds?

Age-stratified infection fatality rate (IFR) of COVID-19 in the non-elderly population

The largest burden of COVID-19 is carried by the elderly, and persons living in nursing homes are particularly vulnerable. However, 94% of the global population is younger than 70 years and 86% is younger than 60 years. The objective of this study was to accurately estimate the infection fatality rate (IFR) of COVID-19 among non-elderly people in the absence of vaccination or prior infection… we identified 40 eligible national seroprevalence studies covering 38 countries with pre-vaccination seroprevalence data…

If your kid gets COVID, the risk is 3 in 1 million that your child will die from COVID. And that is likely an over-estimate because today all early treatment protocols are suppressed worldwide.

Gotcha! Gleeful Tories knife Andrew Bridge

It appears that the political establishment has circled its wagons and decided it will make a stand against any and all who voice questions regarding Covid vaccine.  No gradual rolling back on vaccine efficacy or safety, but a doubling down on the dishonest propaganda that espouses the importance and essential need for the vaccine and ongoing vigilance, and acceptance of Government as the only source of truth for future emergencies (e.g. catastrophic climate change).

The expulsion of Andrew Bridgen is a shot across the bows of any other MPs who might consider raising their heads above the parapet. The claims of vaccine safety and effectiveness will be amplified, false data re-asserted as truth, and opposition quelled by any means.

This is authoritarianism coming out into the light, ready to use its recently found power over our lives. Over the last three years it has taken control over almost all aspects of our lives, and now it has decided it is going to go on the offensive to cement its position of dominance over the shaping of all our futures, and it will not be forced to relinquish its grip without drastic action by us, the electorate.

Jack Last died as result of AstraZeneca vaccine – coroner

Amazingly, that’s a mainstream headline.

Jack Last, 27, from Stowmarket, was vaccinated on 30 March 2021 and a week later was admitted to hospital after experiencing headaches and sickness.

A scan on 10 April revealed a cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) and he died 10 days later.

Senior coroner Nigel Parsley… said: “Jack Last died of a blood clot to the brain, caused as a direct result of his body’s reaction to the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccination which he had received on March 30, 2021.”

Speaking after the two-day inquest, the solicitor working on behalf of the family said they would be pursuing a clinical negligence case against the hospitals involved in Mr Last’s care…

BBC, 13 December 20221One of several archived shots of this article.

BBC couldn’t say ‘coincidence’. So instead…

Cases of clots following vaccination are considered extremely rare. A major UK study said the risk of complications was dwarfed by the risks of the virus itself.

Australia’s Former AMA President Defects, Exposes COVID Vaccines

Former Australian Medical Association President and a former MP, Dr. Kerryn Phelps, just defected and is on our side!

A wide-ranging article in The Chronicle1Archive. reveals that she and her wife suffered devastating injuries from Covid vaccines. Dr. Phelps submitted her reports of injuries, as well as her mistreatment and silence imposed on Australian doctors, to the Parliament of Australia.

Igor Chudov

I read Kerryn Phelps’ submission.

A member of Oz SAGE, she seems…

  • worried about Long COVID2Something Drs. Marik, Kory, McCullough and others say can be avoided with early treatment
  • keen on masks (“evidence-based targeted mandates”) and mandating isolation of the infected
  • to want ‘misinformation’ tackled3Like some ‘myths’ she lists on page 5
  • to think children are at risk4No mention at all of age-stratified risk. No infection fatality rate or case fatality rates stated either.
  • concerned at reduced levels of testing
  • to want a zero COVID approach in hospitals and medical facilities
  • to prefer large-scale public health and government interventions over personal responsibility so no one is left behind…

Just some of the red flags I saw in her submission. Plus there’s this:

The vaccine injury happened to Dr. Phelps around July 2021…

What was she doing in January 2022? That’s right, pushing Covid vaccines to be administered to kids.

Igor Chudov

That’s what JJ Couey highlights while introducing Australian Doctors With Voices discussion on Dr. Phelps revelations.

Nonetheless I welcome…

… that pages 9-13 of her submission to the Inquiry into Long COVID and Repeated COVID Infections covered a lot of the harms associated with these shots – and the need to support the injured (specifically mentioning the React19 and CoVerse support groups).

Another medical professional speaking out. Great! Maybe the tide is turning?

Australian Media non-combative?

Phelps joins a growing number of high-profile physicians worldwide, including British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra and oncologist Professor Angus Dalgeish, who have turned against the shots after publicly supporting them in 2021.

But Phelps’s history of aggressive advocacy for the Covid vaccines – and all Covid countermeasures – makes her comments particularly hard to dismiss…

As striking as Phelps’s warning is the reception that Australian media gave it. While other physicians have faced scorn for their recent efforts to discuss potential vaccine injuries, Phelps is being treated largely respectfully.

Maybe the obvious failure of the vaccines to prevent Covid infection is leading to a larger reassessment of their benefit and risks, or maybe Phelps’s advocacy for other Covid countermeasures improves her credibility with journalists. Either way, though, the wall of silence around vaccine injuries seems to be cracking. At least a little.

It only took two years.

The dumbest, most dishonest argument for Covid jabs yet

A computer model claims they prevented 3 million American deaths and almost 19 million hospitalizations. Imagine what they would have done if they actually WORKED against Omicron…

… in the interests of science – as opposed to The Science – I will demolish this absurdity in three minutes or less.

Alex Berenson

el gato malo does a more detailed takedown

passing off a model as evidence is tantamount to lying…

remember this?

so, if it does backfit and your major parameter assumption is wrong, it means the whole rest of your model is garbage.

… it’s pure GIGO1Garbage In, Garbage Out and the minute you assumed “vaccines worked well” then “vaccines saved huge numbers of lives” will pop out.

but if this assumption is wrong (as it appears so clearly to have been in the israeli palestine natural experiment comparison where death rates in the two places were near indistinguishable both before and after vaccination despite wide divergence in vaxx rate) then you’ve just “proven” nothing at all apart from the fact that models express the assumptions of the modeler.

Journalists must stop believing the false reality they create

Most journalists never look outside of the mainstream bubble for information, and they also tend to repeat what they are told by authority.

But they also don’t have time to do any digging or investigating.

It’s a recipe for disaster when it comes to holding authority to account, and has led to a big drop in public trust in the legacy media.

A version of reality has been created by the legacy news that is so far from the truth that it has become impossible for those who believe that reality to break free.

To do so would be too traumatic, and therefore—subconsciously or otherwise—journalists who create and believe in this false reality do all they can to protect it.

Letter to the Menticided: A 12-Step Recovery Program

Are You a Victim of Menticide?

If you are a victim… you don’t know it. That’s the first sign…

“Free men in a free society must learn not only to recognize this stealthy attack on mental integrity and fight it, but must learn also what there is inside man’s mind that makes him vulnerable to this attack, what it is that makes him, in many cases, actually long for a way out of the responsibilities that republican democracy and maturity place on him.”

“There are human beings who are of remarkably agile intellect yet stupid, and others who are intellectually quite dull yet anything but stupid.…

“The impression one gains is not so much that stupidity is a congenital defect, but that, under certain circumstances, people are made stupid or that they allow this to happen to them.…

Only you can liberate yourself from willful stupidity. Continuing to read this article and being willing to implement these twelve steps proves you have the intelligence to do so.

All you have to lose are your manufactured delusions; misplaced pride; gullibility; fear; terror; anxiety; rage; and mental and physical enslavement…

COVID-19 Vaccines are Not Safe for the Heart

… the general public and doctors don’t know what’s really happening; and they don’t even know that they don’t know.

Dr. Aseem Malhotra (1:37:00)

Nov 29, Dallas, Texas Drs. McCullough and Malhotra spoke about:

  • manipulated virus
  • military style approach
  • deceptive use of science and data.1E.g. Relative Risk vs Absolute Risk.
  • regulatory, media and political capture
  • censorship and being attacked
  • Pfizer and Moderna’s original trials showed greater risk of harm from injection than of catching COVID…

… I was cautious during the early months of the vaccine campaign but as the deaths accrued shortly after injection I could not remain silent by the late winter of 2021.  Dr. Malhotra in his presentation painfully describes his journey of emotional distraught, losing his father and last remaining first-degree family member, and then his relentless pursuit of the truth culminating in the publication of a pair of analyses concluding all COVID-19 vaccinations are not sufficiently safe nor effective to remain in use today… Together we have hundreds of published scientific reports and opinions.  We have delivered thousands of lectures and speeches.   We both have suffered professional retaliation for telling the truth.   We are not wrong about these conclusions.

No nuance allowed. And ISAG.

Wide-ranging, insightful conversation between Gerry O’Neill and Irish ex-pat Ewan MacKenna – Journalist, author & broadcaster.

You will have yours, but two stand outs for me:

  1. Our culture now prevents nuanced perspectives and conversations. Ask a question, drop a hint and we are instantly categorised as either pro- or anti- … vax… lockdown… Putin… Ukraine… no middle ground allowed.
  2. In the current lull it’s easy to forget things. Like ISAG1the Independent Scientific Advocacy Group members deceiving politicians, scaremongering approach and desire to sort things with a good hurley and no witnesses.
