New German Minister of Health just keeps lying

Despite all the reservations from his own party, he became a member of Germany's cabinet: Karl Lauterbach ultimately became Minister of Health thanks to promotion in the mainstream media.

    Lauterbach’s new position has not made him wary

    Lauterbach is not a picture of health: Rotting bottom row of teeth. Twitter

    Countless TV shows and the mainstream press have already given Lauterbach endless opportunities to spread vaccination hysteria quite shamelessly. The Minister of Health, who incidentally boasts a row of rotten bottom teeth, appears not to want to mend his ways.

    On the day he became Minister of Health, alarmist Karl Lauterbach gave an interview to ZDF in which he claimed that the Omicron variant was “very dangerous”. If this virus variant became the predominant one, everyone who had been vaccinated twice would have to be vaccinated again, he said. Only then will full vaccination protection be achieved.

    One is amazed to learn that there were not yet any reliable scientific results on the table on Wednesday to accurately assess the Omicron variant. The moderator of the Heute Journal then followed up and asked the new minister about the danger for children from Omicron: “It’s harmless to children. What do you, as Minister of Health, say about this in this new position?”

    Without blinking an eye, Lauterbach replied: “The following can be said very clearly: We have to assume that the Omicron variant is particularly dangerous for children. Unfortunately, this is so that the Omicron variant not only spreads faster, but unfortunately also affects children more heavily and thus leads to more hospital admissions. That means we have to plan ahead here.”

    Lauterbach said he hoped that there would be an assessment from STIKO soon to support his claim. He personally was “speaking as a scientist”. This was too much to bear even for fellow vaccine pusher, virologist Klaus Stöhr, who confirmed that there was no evidence for these outlandish claims. “From my perspective, there is no evidence from the preliminary data that even comes close to the conclusion that children are affected by severe courses at Omicron.”

    The mainstream press has started to question his falsehoods

    Of course, the mainstream press is more cautious in its choice of words, but at its core the Berliner Zeitung also outed him as a liar. It commented on the statements Lauterbach made on the ZDF news program: “The statement by Health Minister Karl Lauterbach that the Omicron variant is especially dangerous for children and would lead to high hospitalization rates, is obviously not backed up with facts.”

    In other words: The reason for Lauterbach’s fictitious claims about the Omicron variant, is aimed at causing panic again, in order to get parents and the population to accept the jab since there is the “threat” that the Corona variant from South Africa would lead to severe illness and hospitalizations.

    The Berliner Zeitung comes to the same conclusion as any sane person would: “The statement that children are more affected by Omikron ignores the data situation. […] The current data worldwide does not yet say anything reliable about the dangerousness of the variant or the degree of hospitalization.”

    But what does that say about the new German Minister of Health and his role to inform the public? Because even his statement that a booster vaccination helps, cannot be upheld, as the Omicron variant will soon be predominant and the old vaccines do not help against variant escape.

    “Finally, the irresponsible statements of this ominous man are under the microscope. Hopefully this will not be ignored,” commented the AfD’s family policy spokesman in the German Bundestag, Martin Reichardt, after the mainstream press checked the health minister’s statements for their truthfulness.

    Perhaps Lauterbach wants the press to concentrate on his antics rather than rising hospitalizations for myocarditis?

    Federal Statistical Office further erodes trust in the government

    The figures from the Federal Statistical Office – a state institution that is subordinate to the Federal Ministry of the Interior – on excess mortality in Germany in 2020 compared to the previous year 2019 convey something that politicians and the mass media do not want to hear.

    There was excess mortality in the Corona year 2020. In October, for example, only one third of this was due to Corona and two thirds had other, as yet unexplained causes, according to a press conference of the office in Wiesbaden.

    What does that tell us? Perhaps that Corona is responsible for a third of the deaths that exceed the expected numbers and the anti-Corona measures for twice as many cases? There is zero data on vaccination results and deaths, and therefore nothing can be proven, but neither can the contrary.

    This press conference of the Federal Statistical Office did very little to strengthen the population’s trust in the state, not because of what the speakers said, but because of what they meticulously left out.

    Forced vaccination… loading

    The Bundestag has passed a further amendment to the Infection Protection Act. In a vote on Friday 571 MPs voted for mandatory shots, 80 against, 38 abstained.

    The change provides for a mandatory vaccination for staff in health and care facilities from March 15, 2022. In order to speed up the booster vaccinations, dentists, veterinarians and pharmacists should also be allowed to temporarily administer vaccinations and it is expected that they will be paid extra per injection.

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.

    FREEZING IN THEIR HOMES is the new grim reality for many Brits and Northern Europeans. Margaret is 92 years old and has just come in from the winter cold, but no warmth awaits her at home. She fears her own home more than the icy streets. Next to her are four thick blankets, and on the shelf above the fireplace, which she can no longer afford to buy wood for, is a meter showing the daily cost of electricity (inset). It shows £1.03, about 13 SEK. When it reaches £3, about 38 SEK, she is forced to turn off the little heat she has to afford it. Still image: ITW News

    Brits Forced to Live in Darkness and Cold

    Food prices are rising at a furious pace, fastest in Scotland in almost half a century. At the same time, energy prices are at record highs. People are forced to choose between freezing or going hungry, and a majority of Scots are forced to live in cold and darkness to cope with bills. Old generations' tricks for saving and keeping warm are returning. Nevertheless, it is feared that 10,000 Brits will die of cold homes this winter. We present the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines on indoor temperature. Governments in Europe are introducing rationing and monitoring of food purchases. Net-zero emissions are a lie that, in practice, de-industrializes the West and dramatically lowers our standard of living.
