Permalink Australia Raises Alarm: Citizens Dying at ‘Incredibly High’ Rate

Officials in Australia are raising the alarm as the country’s excess deaths have soared to an “incredibly high” rate. | Australia’s peak actuarial body is calling on the government to urgently investigate the country’s spike in deaths this year. An analysis of Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) data by the Actuaries Institute shows a 13 percent rise in deaths during 2022. The data revealed that an additional 15,400 people died in the first eight months of the year alone. The deaths were listed as non-COVID-19 fatalities. However, one-third of those extra deaths are people who have never contracted Covid, Actuaries confirmed.  Deaths from diseases other than COVID-19 represented nearly half of all deaths that otherwise would have been expected for the first four months of the year, according to AFR. 💬 13% is an “incredibly high number for mortality,” and it is “not clear” what is driving the increase, said Karen Cutter, spokeswoman for the institute’s COVID-19 Mortality Working Group. “Mortality doesn’t normally vary by more than 1 to 2%, so 13% is way higher than normal levels,” she said. “I’m not aware [of anything comparable] in the recent past but I haven’t gone back and looked [historically].

American Buddhist Net | Not a word about the covid vax. Kelly proves he is a fool with his ridiculous nonsense. If you place just the word injury in the ABN search box, you will get many results that show how dangerous the vaxxes are. Searching just death will provide even more startling results. This is just a small website and those two words by no means yield all the information on vax deaths. How can Australia’s Chief Medical Officer dissemble like this? He cannot be so obtuse he does not even know the most likely reason for the high death rates occurring not just in Australia but throughout countries that used mRNA vaxxes is the mRNA vaxxes. If you want even more information on vax deaths search this site’s medical science tab. I would send that link to Kelly myself but know that anonymity will soon be verboten in Australia. Australia’s covid response and Kelly’s pathetic medical “reasoning” are perfect examples of why anonymous free speech is imperative for a developed civilization.

Permalink EU military stockpiles ‘depleted’ – Borrell

Brussels’ top diplomat says the military-industrial complex needs more investments to continue arming Ukraine| EU members must pour more resources into boosting their military capabilities to ensure the flow of weapons will continue “until Ukraine prevails” over Russia, the bloc’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, has said. He acknowledged that insufficient preparation has led to member states’ stockpiles becoming depleted. 💬 “We have given weapons to Ukraine, but in so doing, we realized that our military stockpiles have been depleted,” he wrote in a blog post on Sunday. “And we should be able to do this as long as necessary, until Ukraine prevails.” The situation “has been a wake-up call for all of us about our military capabilities,” he said, reiterating his assessment from the previous week that the EU is “lacking critical defense capabilities.” While acknowledging that “you do not fight wars with bank notes,” and that “there is a long way between allocating money and developing physical and human operational capabilities,” Borrell praised the fact that the EU’s spending on defense surpassed the €200 billion-level in 2021 for the first time.

Permalink Peru's new president proposes early elections amid deadly protests

Peru authorities confirmed two deaths during ongoing protests demanding fresh elections and the resignation of new President Dina Boluarte, as thousands of demonstrators were reported on streets across the country Sunday. | The latest: Boluarte responded to the calls by announcing in a televised address a proposal for Congress to bring forward the next general elections to April 2024, per AP. 💬 "My duty as president of the republic in the current difficult time is to interpret, read and collect the aspirations, interests and concerns, if not of all, of the vast majority of Peruvians," Boluarte said, according to AP. "So, interpreting in the broadest way the will of the citizens... I have decided to assume the initiative to reach an agreement with the congress of the republic to advance the general elections." Context: The 60-year-old former vice president was sworn in last Wednesday until 2026 — when the presidency of her impeached predecessor, Pedro Castillo, was due to end.

There have been tense scenes in rural areas that are strongholds of the 53-year-old left-wing former schoolteacher Castillo, who is from a poor Andean mountain district.
