I'm back! (21/3/2020)
Actually, I never went away. The rally that I was scheduled to do journalisting at this weekend was postponed, although I've done enough organising of these events in my time to think that "postponed" really means "cancelled". The logistics of an event like this mean that you can't simply pick another date and move everything without doing almost all of the preparatory work again. If the most iconic race on the Formula One calendar, the Monaco Grand Prix, can be cancelled after running since 1955 and with the Indianapolis 500 in doubt it's hard to make a case for running far less prestigious races and rallies. I don't think I'll be going to the next two rallies on my calendar for the year, but I won't be going to the football or any concerts either.
Because I wasn't planning on writing anything this weekend I've collected some coronavirus batshittery.
It's all a conspiracy, I tells ya (21/3/2020)
Actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson managed to get themselves infected with the coranavirus that's playing the overture to Armageddon and ended up in isolation in a hospital in Australia. They released the photo below with a message to their fans saying that they were getting medical treatment and expected to recover fully and continue with whatever they were in the country for.
Then the madness started. Because nothing can possibly be as it seems for conspiracy believers, the loons started in with what the real story must be. The clue was the barcode on the door behind the couple. This showed that they were not in isolation in a hospital but must be in some highly secure containment facility where the truth could be hidden from the sheeple. A massive jump in logic (sic) was made to suggest that Tom Hanks had been positively identified as a pedophile and this is why he had to be locked up. There is, of course, no evidence whatsoever that Mr Hanks has ever done any of the things that the lunatics claim, but pedophilia has long been an accusation directed to anyone who is not part of the woke group. I've been accused and I'm nowhere as famous as the Hanks family. I have no idea what the accusation here has to do with anything, so maybe it's just one of the things on a conspiracy kook's to-do list that has to be checked off. (A friend of mine works at the hospital and he says all the doors have barcodes. It's part of the maintenance and asset management of the place. All the computers and desks have barcodes as well.)
But Tom is something else as well, and just pretending to have the virus. And the sheeple will be using 5G connections to download his movies with subliminal Masonic messages.
Being a Freemason is another of those boxes that have to be ticked when lying about someone. A year or so back some anti-vaccination liar suggested vandalising the Masonic Temple in the town where I live just in case I was a member of the fraternal order. I squared it with the police to make sure that nobody was hoodwinked.
The madness escalates!
Coincidentally, Bill Gates announced that he is standing down from the boards of Microsoft and other companies in order to spend more time doing other things, such as fighting climate change. Almost immediately it was announced in kookworld that he had not resigned, he had been fired because, wait for it, he is a pedophile. Tick that box.
And Josh knows the truth. He is so woke it almost hurts. I hate it when my respitory system gails.
And you thought it was the people buying up all the toilet paper who were mad.
That High Court writ (21/3/2020)
Back in February I mentioned that someone was asking the High Court of Australia to rule on the legality and constitutional validity of vaccines. Actually, he was asking the High Court if they would consider doing this. At the time I predicted that the Court would not bother wasting its time on such nonsense. Was I right?
I'm sure this loon really believes that the High Court convenes a full bench to look at applications to appear, but out here in the real world we know that the Court has a filter to prevent it wasting its time. I can confidently predict that if Sol does actually apply to appeal, his application will receive the same treatment as his original writ. I also predict that the anti-vaccination liars who were wetting themselves a month ago about how the High Court was giving legitimacy to their delusions by hearing his claim will now be saying that it has obviously changed its mind about rejecting the writ and has accepted his appeal.
I do like the irony of someone who demands that the Court does things it can't and won't do warning people about the offence of Contempt of Court. What could be more contemptuous than wasting the Court's time and resources on trivial idiocy?
As I said at the time: 'It would be sad if it wasn't so funny".
My influence is influential (21/3/2020)
While looking for something else I found this mention of me at a site which apparently lists the sources of spam.
I'm rather surprised to find that I'm a member of the "International Nazi Party headquartered in Berlin, Germany", especially as the Nazis are outlawed in that country, and apparently I also run the Stormfront and WorlwideWhitePride "Nazi Front groups". I suppose it's a change from being called a Jewish Freemason.
Another of life's little mysteries.
I have reason to believe that this was created as satire, but you can never be sure these days.
I'll acknowledge creatorship if someone tells me who made it.
I do us all a favour. Or maybe not. (28/3/2020)
In November last year I mentioned that the amount of pollution in the world was about to increase with the release of a film called "Vaxxed II", a sequel to a film released in 2016 which caused demand for anti-emetic medications to surge so badly that patients on chemotherapy were severely disadvantaged and for some manufacturers of Ipecac syrup to file for bankruptcy.
The good news is that the sequel is now available on DVD and will be on sale through the Australian Vaccination-[this week's lie] Network on Monday, April 6. The even better news is that you don't have to waste money, only time, because I have magnanimously made the film available for free. The usual disclaimers apply – wear waterproof clothing and cover your furniture and carpets with plastic sheeting before sitting down to watch. Vomit stains are difficult to get out of some fabrics. (You could take your laptop out into the yard where you could hose the vomit off your lawn, but the retching noises might alarm the neighbours.)
But wait, there's more! (28/3/2020)
Not content with just threatening everyone with damage to the esophagus caused by explosive gastric reflux, Meryl Dorey of the AV-[xxx]N is of course warning about overreaction to the coronavirus epidemic. (She is also an AIDS denier, but that's no surprise either.) Here she is on Twitter setting someone straight. Why should someone calling themselves a "living kidney donor" be worried about the "common bloody cold"?
Ms Dorey has also issued a newsletter warning of the coming apocalypse. Not the disease apocalypse, of course, but the imminent introduction of mandatory vaccination for everyone. Here is something by artist Albrecht Dürer predicting the arrival of the flu vaccine in Australia in the next few weeks.
If you have recovered from watching the awful video, you can go here for more scary scaremongering.
I reminisce … (28/3/2020)
When this site went into hibernation in 2016 I simultaneously dropped out of participation in Usenet newsgroups. One of my favourite groups was misc.health.alternative, and one of my favourite contributors to the group was Patrick Timothy Bolen, spokespustule for cancer quacks (some of them dead, from cancer), dentists who commit insurance fraud when they aren't sexually molesting patients, crooked testing laboratories and other vermin.
I've been alerted to Timmy's latest blog post and in it he goes Full Mental Jacket – there is the obligatory climate change denial (of course) but what really trips his fuse is the coronavirus. As Timmy has never seen a conspiracy he didn't accept without question, he is predicting the takeover of everything by government. Not just any government, though.
I could summarise the madness, but editing out everything except the crazy would mean leaving 99.99999% of everything behind (I suppose I could just edit out "and", "the" "but", "a" and "an" but that would make it even more nonsensical). I'll let you do the hard work and read "CoronaVirus – Should We CANCEL The 2020 Presidential Election and Activate NDAA (1021)?" for yourself. My advice for reading anything by Tim is to be fully covered with protective clothing, although if you can't get into full fire fighting yellows you should at least wear a face mask to stop the spatter of mouth foam spittle. Research has shown that the spray of mouth foam is usually enough to extinguish the sparks of white hot blinding stupid but I still like to get into the full suit just in case.
I thought I'd do the Kind and Gentle thing and offer Tim some encouragement, so I posted a comment.
Unfortunately there seems to be some glitch in the software and my comment never made it to publication. The "Poor Peter" is because that was what Tim inevitably called me whenever he replied to anything I said. I think he thought it might upset me but all it did was make me laugh harder at him.
More reminiscing (28/3/2020)
March 31 is coming up and every year on that date I get a warm feeling because it's the anniversary of the death of Mr William P O'Neill in 2013, a death which increased human happiness greatly. (2013 also saw the death of pretend psychic Sylvia Browne. YouTube reported a huge demand for videos of Frank Sinatra singing "It Was A Very Good Year", following the YouTube tradition of reading the tile and ignoring the words and sentiment of a song, but I digress …)
Here's something I wrote at the time.
And one last thing … (4/5/2013)
I hoped it wasn't someone playing a cruel April Fool's joke when I saw this news in the Ottawa Citizen on April 1.
Yes, folks, the beloved William P O'Neill of the Canadian Cancer Research Group and its descendants has gone to the great cesspit in the sky, taking the Gutless Anonymous Liar with him. Sadly, he died quickly and not of cancer. I posted a message to his memorial guest book, but unfortunately some technical glitch prevented it from being published.
I will maintain my own memorial to him here by archiving his correspondence with me and also the wonderful messages he sent wearing his Gutless Anonymous Liar mask. It would be a tragedy for this valuable collection of literature to disappear.
