Despite predictable rollbacks to federal, state, and local mandates in the wake of trucker convoys and deflating poll numbers for Democrats, there has nevertheless been a quiet effort to institute questionable technology with devastating future consequences.
The obvious and concerning question ought to be: If Covid is going away (and it is, for all intents and purposes), then why are we just now introducing and implementing QR-code technology that can house one;’s vaccination status? The article eerily answers that question in a way that should alert everyone’s Spidey senses.
The propaganda from Forbes ran with the headline “A National Vaccine Pass Has Quietly Rolled Out – And Red States Are Getting On Board” and began with a glaring contradiction:
“Even as the omicron variant loosens its grip on the world, destinations continue to require travelers to show proof of vaccination. And, increasingly, a paper CDC vaccination card is not cutting it.”
Statements like these are patently false. For starters, technology-based information is inherently better than paper? How is that exactly?
Secondly, how many countries have abandoned restrictions altogether? Countries like Iceland, which is experiencing the highest case and death rates ever recorded since the pandemic’s outbreak despite a 90%+ adult vaccinated rate and two years of restrictive measures, are nevertheless recognizing the futility of continued lockdowns, masking, and vaccinating. New Zealand has effectively lived under martial law and is likewise witnessing the greatest single case surge since Covid was identified. In other words, these fancy vaccine passports mean and do nothing, medically speaking.
The most frightening tidbit is saved for the end of the article. While true that Covid is seemingly on the verge of being a thing of the past, there is a concerted effort to wish for another pandemic. Both Forbes and Bill Gates make sure we don’t forget a new, scary virus is lurking just around the corner. I’ll start with the article, which ran the final portion under the heading “this won’t be the last pandemic.” Gee, you don’t say.
“Lastly, having a vaccine verification system in place prepares the U.S. for the next coronavirus variant as well as the inevitability of a future pandemic.
Today the main threat to our health and economy remains the omicron variant, says Anderson. “But it’s going to be pi in a couple months, and it’s going to be the same situation. Yes, we’re going to get to an endemic phase of all of this, but that doesn’t change the need to continue to protect the citizens of a nation from highly transmissible and communicable diseases.”
‘“Vaccination verification will be increasingly important at an international level,” Anderson says. “And so if we want to enable all of our citizens from every state to be able to participate in the safe travel across international boundaries and to participate in international commerce, it’d be important for our government officials from every state to enable this.’”
You know you’re reprinting Pravda when you extensively quote the guy – Dr. Brain Anderson – who leads the way in ensuring adequate means exist to imprison the world’s citizens with technological chains through the international business-government conglomerate Vaccine Credential Initiative (VCI). . As the article notes, VCI is “a global coalition of public and private stakeholders including Microsoft, Salesforce, Oracle, the Mayo Clinic and other health and tech heavyweights.” Yep, not scary at all.
Although the article is big on positives, not mentioned anywhere are the drawbacks. I’ll just name one: Loss of freedom. Does anyone need more proof that this tool could be weaponized so fast against what is deemed as noncompliance and nonconformists? As everything becomes digitized (always for our convenience, we are told), what would it take to have to scan in to dine out? To get groceries? To go to the bank? To apply for a job? To deposit a mobile check? To enter an emergency room? To file taxes or to qualify for your tax refund?
I have a different idea: No medical records of any kind need to be shown. Ever. Let’s start there.
