  1. Doctors on the Labor salary will say there has been a massive spike, and they will make us go back into lockdown again 3 weeks after freedom because the Left wants to totally bankrupt the country so they can blame the Libs, you will see a massive spike because COVID testing facilities are Left-leaning and they follow orders. I know this because a friend that worked as a tester was being told to toe the line and the numbers of cases need to be up, so she quit, And was threatened not to say anything.

  2. This doesn't sound like the Wuhan "disease", this is sounding more like covid has already evolved in to a seasonal flu " globally " just as virologists declared way back in April 2020 when it was clear the disease was breaking down. All this includes countries that have low vaccination rates. Perhaps it's time to start listening to independent virologists rather than the endless streams of epidemologist, public servants, economists and politicians hell bent on sticking with the pharmaceutical corporations narratives.

  3. Why would you keep fully vaccinated family from supporting their covid sick loved ones in hospital?
    No wonder they die. We all know their emotions would have a lot to do with the patients recoveries also. Keeping them away from people they need for emotional support at that time and when they are in so much fear it’s disgusting!
    If hospital staff can work with them I’m sure their is a way to let families visit their sick loved ones even after doing as the officials have dictated!
    My body, my choice is obviously meaningless to these government official fakes that are mandating this and making this so confusing!
    Why can’t we ALL go about life normal if or when we have reached the “vaccine goal” to slow down hospitalisation?
    That was the goal wasn’t it?
    We can’t eliminate covid.
    And with so many taking up the vaccine why are cases and hospitalisations rising? Shouldn’t it at least be staying stable with all the precautions also.
    Why do fully vaccinated people still have to mask up, restrict themselves and take precautions? Shouldn’t we be able to be free if we are vaccinated? We should be safe right?
    The vaccine keeps the vaccinated person from getting severe symptoms or being hospitalised. Vaccinated still contract COVID and spread it and they are finding it’s less and less efficient. The un vaccinated are only if any a danger to themselves which is their right to choose.

    Is it true that our politicians get millions of dollars donations, from lobbyists to help get them elected, and these lobbyists are people with pharmaceutical company connections??
    I’m sure there is no conflict of interest here lol

    Why are they trying to divide people over “vaccination status” when the shot only keeps the vaccinated person from getting a severe case and out of hospital maybe.
    Look how Israel are doing, not good, and they are leaders in taking up of these shot 💉 their on their 4th or 5th booster now.
    And I’m not sure if a vaccine that you need every 6 months or less, would be actually working?

    I believe there is a very contagious virus.
    But I also know if under 70 years old with no underlying health probs, you have more than 99% survival rate. Some don’t even know they have it.
    People are more scared of this new mRNA vaccine than the virus.
    But because people think the opposite their forcing others by coercing and blackmailing loved ones to take a experimental mRNA medical treatment that they are more scared of then the virus.
    People hesitant to the vaccine are scared for their health and life too.
    Vaccines need to be personal choice, not personal blackmail.

    What about over running the hospitals?
    Maybe for starters we should not be firing the brave health staff that have been dealing with COVID without a vaccine for nearly 2 years, just for not accepting a new medical treatment.

    These shots have not been through our usual 2, 5 & 7 year long term health trials. This is the trial, and they are still forcing it on people scared for their own health.

    Maybe it’s a chance to improve our hospital service's with the billions of our tax money. Instead of throwing all of our billions of tax money at big pharmaceutical and big tech companies to get us out of this, with a national digital “vaccinated” citizen passports and booster shots every 6 months or so. That our children and their children will be paying off through their lifetimes with no real benefit to their health system. It’s just investing in getting big pharma, tech and probably government officials to get rich by investing in a citizen control system where you are suspected guilty till proven guilty.

    If we force these shots into everyone, will we be forced into shots every 6 months to keep our “freedoms” in the future?
    When does this circle of fear end?

    Why do people who had COVID and have natural immunity now need to be forced to get “fully vaccinated?” As they have natural immunity which is proved to better at fighting the variants?

    And why do government officials seem hell bent on ruining small business. So much pressure.
    Not only have they kept them from making money on and off for nearly 2 years but when they bring in vaccine passports they are leaving it up to the business owner to deal with all the legalities of it all!
    Mandatory vaccines for employees are dangerous. If the employee has a severely bad reaction the business is open to be taken to court and they will at least have to pay legal advise and that also goes for locking some people out of business for medical choices.
    Why should the business man doors and send away paying customers because of vax status when they are no health risk to anyone really, except to themselves.

    No matter your medical decision,
    We ALL were in lock down the same!
    We ALL lost jobs the same, unvaccinated even more so!
    Our children have ALL suffered the same socially, mentally, and education wise.
    Why do people think they have e a right to judge someone for making a personal health treatment decision especially when it is still in the trial stages. We should have a say to be in a trial!

    To many questions unanswered!
    This is all fishy to me!
    At 80% vaccinated there should be herd immunity. Once that is reached we need a stop to the government officials that are holding on to this control system by dividing us with propaganda

  4. How many of the scare tactic " covid deaths " are deaths 100% causes from covid, seems even if a person was hit by a car its still reported as a covid death if they had covid as the death rate before covid is not much different and once a post mortem is done, barely any of these " covid deaths " are directly from covid.
    plus why is a government reporting deaths caused from covid before a post mortem has even been carried out, they must be fortune tellers.

  5. With the noticeable absence of one Gladys "The Gold Standard" Berejiklian the daily news conferences continue unabated. As a fresh lineup of representatives takes to the podium to brief the media. It is unknown at this time as to who will be on the daily conference schedule since Gladys rather hastily & impromptu departure sent the media into a frenzy. 😉✌💓🐨🇦🇺

  6. 1 Corinthians 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
