These are testing times — and not just because of the hysteria and hypocrisy over the “pandemic”. Our familiarity with dystopian literature is also being brought to the fore, as the draconis horribilis scenario races ahead. Those of us who have read Nineteen Eighty-Four, Animal Farm, Logan’s Run, A Handmaid’s Tale, The Matrix, Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World, Gattaca or Soylent Green will perceive the tell-tale indicators of the despotic mind at work — illogical, murderous and self-congratulatory. We were plied with these narratives at school and now the authority figures hope we will skip along with the long-mooted plans for our enslavement, having passed our English literature exams long ago.
A situation that started out as a worry has quickly morphed into a real pain in the ass, as the medical technocratic machine seeks to mask or probe every biological orifice. The “ID” in Covid is now being given air time in the mass media, with New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, on Friday announcing a plan to roll out “vaccine” passports.
In Europe, a number of states have expressed interest in vaccination passports or certificates, to restart travel for citizens of the EU area. The European Council in January announced its support for the concept, although did not define the uses of the certificates. “Leaders agreed to work on a standardized and interoperable form of proof of vaccination for medical purposes. Leaders will determine at a later stage in what circumstances these certificates could be used,” the Council wrote in a press release on January 21.
Countries within the so-called Shengen area that are either implementing or supportive of the measures include Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden.
Canada has 11 quarantine sites across the country, with a current “wish list” for more in other cities, according to the public works department. If you test positive for Covid-19, you are forced into one of their quarantine camps for 14 days. The Justin Trudeau government plan is to award contracts to private prison groups in March this year for more “Covid-19” facilities. The facilities may be used for “other requirements” for the next two years at least.
Trudeau said in March that he was uneasy with the idea of a national program to document vaccination status. He said it could marginalize people “who, for whatever reason, can’t or won’t get a vaccine”.
“The idea of certificates of vaccination for domestic use does bring in questions of equity. There are questions of fairness and justice. There could be discrimination,” Trudeau said in French.
Trudeau conceded a vaccine passport program could be implemented for international travel to curb transmission risk. Dominic LeBlanc, the minister of intergovernmental affairs, said last month that Canada was working with international partners to develop a program to verify that incoming travelers have had a Covid-19 shot.
China, in March issued the “world’s first” vax passport, which is available to download from social media app WeChat. Although only 3.65 per cent of the population has received the jabs, the digital certificate will “promote world economic recovery and facilitate cross-border travel,” according to foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian. It is unclear which countries will recognize the certification.
Israel could lay claim to the fastest roll-out of the system, with half of its 9 million population having received two shots. Israelis are now being asked for proof of “vaccination” before entering shops, bars and theatres. Most are still to be seen wearing face masks — perhaps because the jabs have been shown to offer no protection from the alleged virus and because recipients potentially become shedders of the rona. The small country, which is surrounded by supposed Arab enemies on all sides, has been historically quick to adopt measures handed down from its leaders, as if in perpetual war-time mode and perhaps offers an object lesson to other regimes in the use of collective fear. What is apparent is that the jab status could quickly lead to social inequality and become a diplomatic currency.
Republican Senator Madison Cawthorn and a member of the US Holocaust Memorial Council compared the idea of “vaccine passports” to Nazi Germany, by invoking the yellow Stars of David that Nazis forced Jews to wear during the second world war. Richard Grenell, Donald Trump’s former Ambassador to Germany, tweeted a meme showing a Nazi Gestapo officer in the Quentin Tarantino film Inglorious Basterds saying, “You’re hiding unvaccinated people under your floorboards, aren’t you?” The original scene from the movie uses similar wording in referring to Jews.
India has not launched a digital vaccine certificate. Those receiving the first jabs in the country are currently receiving a provisional certificate, and the final certificate is given only after the second dose.
Russia approved its Sputnik V vaccine last summer after only two months of human testing, although the formula is a conventional DNA type. The EU is reportedly also planning to include Sputnik V and Chinese jabs in the vaccine passport. Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov recently warned that vaccination certificates must not infringe on people’s rights to travel. He said that Russia currently issues documents that prove vaccination but is evaluating the possibility of using them for “other purposes”.
In the UK, Covid certificates are to be trialed at big events in April and May. The BBC reported on Friday that former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Tory Iain Duncan Smith were among more than 70 MP’s who were launching a scheme to oppose the introduction of vaccine passports. “Any demand to prove vaccination status to access jobs, businesses or services would be ‘divisive and discriminatory’,” the cross-party group was reported in the BBC as saying.
The World Health Organization is skeptical on the passports. “We do not encourage at this stage that getting a vaccination determines whether you can travel internationally or not,” said Hans Kluge, WHO Europe’s regional director, in March.
The WHO believes certificates would increase inequality, given the “global shortage of vaccines,” but it is also not clear how long immunity lasts once the person gets a Covid-19 vaccine. “If you get a vaccine, you’re protected but still, you can transmit the infection,” Kluge added. Although, confusingly, the WHO is involved in a coalition called the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI), which includes the International Air Transport Association.
There are about 17 initiatives underway across the US to develop “passports”. Last week New York state began using a digital pass developed by IBM that shows vaccination status or a negative Covid-19 status. Madison Square Garden in New York and Times Union Center in Albany began implementing the digital pass as part of their admission process last Friday.
“New Yorkers have proven they can follow public health guidance to beat back Covid, and the innovative Excelsior Pass is another tool in our new toolbox to fight the virus while allowing more sectors of the economy to reopen safely and keeping personal information secure,” said Governor Cuomo on Friday. “The question of ‘public health or the economy’ has always been a false choice — the answer must be both. As more New Yorkers get vaccinated each day and as key public health metrics continue to regularly reach their lowest rates in months, the first-in-the-nation Excelsior Pass heralds the next step in our thoughtful, science-based reopening.”
The choice of IBM as a technology partner is curious, as the company’s expertise helped facilitate Nazi genocide through the generation and tabulation of punch cards based upon national census data in the 1930s.
Dr Leanna Wen, an emergency physician and visiting public health professor at George Washington University, told CNN and Cuomo last week to “make it clear to them that the vaccine is the ticket back to pre-pandemic life, and the window to do that is really narrowing. You [to Cuomo] were mentioning that all these states are re-opening. They are opening at a hundred per cent and we have a very narrow window to tie re-opening policy to vaccination status. Because otherwise, if everything is re-opened, then what’s the carrot going to be? How are we going to incentivize people to actually get the vaccine? So that’s why the CDC and Biden administration needs to come out a lot bolder and say ‘if you are vaccinated, you can do all these things; here are all these freedoms that you have.’ Because otherwise people are going to go out and enjoy these freedoms anyway.”
Judging by her comments, the group think and institutionalized cypher mentality of the network and it guests renders them unable to even disguise their corporate serfdom. Dr. Wen was presumably referring to “herd immunity” in her remarks, although that concept seems outdated and even irrelevant to the Covid schematic.
The variable messages and differing positions adopted by even the “experts” on the pro-jab contingent — and notwithstanding the elephantine issue of safe and cheap prophylactics — clearly point to a pharma-induced stupor that justifies all ways and means to bring about a chip and trace reality for humans. The corporate media seems to be obediently following tightly clipped developments in the agenda, and as yet are avoiding speculation on microchips, along the lines envisaged by Bill Gates. Although, NBC News reported on Sweden’s human microchipping plans in 2019, which showed recipients with data chips implanted into their hands.
In December, Corey’s Digs highlighted a potential black market in vaccine ID passports. The WHO last week claimed that various online forums were advertising fake negative Covid tests and forged vaccination cards for $150. The black market demand, whether an invention of the media or a money-making scheme of criminal scammers, fits the narrative that “vaccines” are valuable and that there is a shortage. The narrative, of course, could be used to justify more “secure” human implants at a later stage — although the pace of developments is already blistering.
Florida’s governor, Ron DeSantis, said at a press conference last week that he would be taking emergency executive action to counter the move towards American citizens requiring vaccine passports to be able to travel domestically and internationally. “We’re not supportive of that. I think it’s something that people have certain freedoms and individual liberties to make decisions for themselves,” he said. “It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply be able to participate in normal society.”
On April 2, 2021 DeSantis signed an executive order doing exactly as he said he would.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters last Monday that the Biden administration would “provide guidance” on private sector efforts to develop vaccine passports.
Naomi Wolf, the liberal feminist writer and journalist, has issued a stark warning about the passport narrative. “I can’t say this any more clearly, the vaccine passport platform is the same platform as a social credit system, like the one in China that enslaves 8 billion people. In China, the CCP can find any dissident in five minutes because of the 360-degree surveillance of the social credit system. When you act like a ‘good’ citizen, you get a boost, and when you act like a ‘bad’ citizen then opportunities get closed to; maybe your child doesn’t get into prep school or maybe you don’t get that job or promotion,” she said in a video on social media. “President Biden said it is going to be mandated. My tyrannical governor Cuomo said that it’s got to be rolled out … It’s happening at warp speed, so please don’t be fooled. This is the most dangerous tool that humanity has faced in my lifetime.”
Meanwhile, there were nearly twice as many vaccine deaths in 2021 than there were over the past decade, according to the CDC. And over 100 fully vaccinated people in Washington state have just been found to test positive for Covid-19.
Familiarity and acceptance of the slave scenario has been carefully cultivated through education and Hollywood movies, leaving some people to believe they must sit somewhere amid the horror stories. However, there are other books that weren’t on the school curriculum and which paint a much brighter future — The Book of Enoch and The Essene Gospel of Peace were swept under the carpet long ago, and send shivers down the spines of despots everywhere. There are many more expansive and liberating narratives out there. Like perusing the shelves of a library, we actually do get to choose our life stories.
“Fifteen days to flatten the curve” is turning into a Biblical epic, where the authors have lost the plot. Voter ID laws were racist, according to the Democrats, but Covid passports are science-based and for our health. But let’s not make a crisis out of a drama.
