  • FORMER PFIZER EMPLOYEE CONFIRMS POISON GRAPHENE OXIDE IN VACCINE

    Documents released from #Vaccine Manufacturers deleted #Chinese database

    “My name is Fred Corbin. I’m a professional race car engineer. I have a background in nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons studies. And I also have civil engineering, aerospace engineering, and marine biology as core related subjects of study. I came here this afternoon, not only to represent the people of Barbados but to bring a certain educational perspective to what a tremendous amount of people have been asking me with the kind of background that I have in understanding what is actually going on. So I have one question, which I don’t want to respond to. I don’t really need a response to the question. And then I have a series of points I would like to back up that question with. And I’d like to address this question directly to the chief medical officer and my lady over there in the corner. I’d like to ask the chief medical officer please to provide evidence for the public education that describes the isolation of a SARS COV 2 virus directly from a sample taken from a deceased patient, where the patient sample was not first combined with any other source of genetic material, ie monkey kidney cells, aka veero cells, liver cancer cells…

    Addressing the situation where a lot of people believe that the SARS COV 2 is a novel coronavirus. SARS COV 2 is a subclade of the beta Coronavirus family. And how do we know this? Simply because we did cross referencing via the international (unintelligible) reviews, and then correlated those with actual genetic sequences and reviewed them against the patent records that were available, and it is apparent that the declaration of a novel Coronavirus is a fallacy. There are several coronaviruses sequences that have been uploaded, but there was not one single identified novel Coronavirus, none at all. Furthermore, patents and Coronavirus sequences were sought as early as 1999. Up until 1999 patenting of Coronavirus sequencing was uniquely isolated to Veterinary Science. The first vaccine patent for Coronavirus was sought by Pfizer and more specifically, the patenting of the s spike protein. The same thing we’ve allegedly only just discovered.” – Fred Corbin

    “First patent application was filed January 28, 2000. 21 years ago. There is nothing new about this and in support of that, we have this document. This is the evidence supporting them. This is the evidence that shows there is no, that SARS is no naturally evolved virus. It’s not a naturally evolved virus. No one has ever produced is a safe and effective vaccine against a Coronavirus. It has never been done and it never will be done simply because it’s not possible. Therefore, I go on, the co-receptor-dependent facial psychic general method of action for those who don’t understand that. Okay, this is science talk. Okay, I’m following the science now. So bear with me. The general method of action for infectivity and pathogenicity. In other words, this is what makes it so deadly. Okay, SARS COV 2 appears to be specifically related to cumulative charge resulting from inserts placed on the surface of the spike receptor-binding domain. What does that tell you? This is a lab-engineered phenomenon. And how do we know that? We can back up that simply because we have a document produced and very kindly submitted to us by our friends in the CCP Intelligence Service who gave us this document where it says two mutations were critical for bat to human transmission of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, Coronavirus. This is where Astra Zeneca and some of the other vaccine manufacturers get their vector from. It’s just there’s one small problem, is that it outlines direct collusion between the Communist Chinese Party and who those who were building it. We recognize HKU4 spike, aiming to build its capacity to mediate viral entry into human cells. To this end, we introduce two single mutations. ‘WE’ introduced two single mutations. Not they, we. S76R and S76A into HKU4 spike. The S76R mutation was expected to restore the HPC model.” – Fred Corbin

    “When I challenge you, with regard to your ingredients of the Pfizer vaccine, I had good reason to do so. Because I hold in my hands an internal document from Pfizer laboratories, which was given to us by a very special person who we have contact with, called reverse engineering, the source code of the BioNTech Pfizer, SARS COV 2 vaccine and this is very, very critical, because it outlines the chemical and the biological processes, which were very, very carefully manipulated, in order to be able to produce an mRNA that also contains a very, very dangerous toxin to the human body. Do you know what that toxin is? That toxin is called graphene oxide. And every single one of these vaccines in a 30-milligram shot contains 15 billion nanoparticles or lipid carrier powder particles within the mRNA sequence. 15 billion nanoparticles. And let me tell you how graphene oxide works when it gets into the body, because when the spike protein then binds itself to our blood cells and so on. Graphene oxide then starts to build a structure and this is why we have people with blood clots and we have people with heart failure, sudden heart failure and so on because graphenes oxide is building structure.” – Fred Corbin

    “I just want to make sure that everybody understands that Barbados is actually a signatory to the Convention on the prohibition and development and production in the stockpiling of bacteriological and toxin weapons. And we signed that treaty on the 16th of July 1976. However, the patent databases that we’ve accessed proves that COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccines are in fact a bioweapon. And how do we support that? Because we have a copy of the mysteriously deleted Wuhan databases that tell us everything. Thank you very much.”

  • Since we're in the midst of a pandemic false flag, meet Prince Philip. He's the genocidal maniac who fantasizes about being reincarnated as a virus to murder as many people as possible in his next life.

    "In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, to contribute something to solving overpopulation," said Prince Philip in 1988.

    He's a next-level criminal who's allowed to live in luxury for the remainder of his natural life while innocent people today are rotting in prisons around the world for consuming a cancer-healing plant like cannabis that criminals like him deemed illegal.

    He's the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, the owner of the slaves of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms. Contrary to corporate propaganda, the British dictator, Elizabeth, has plenty of authoritarian powers and privileges. Here are 7 of her dictatorial privileges:

    1. Without her consent, NO bill can be passed to form a law.
    2. She's also the Queen of Australia, and she can fire the entire Australian Government if she feels like it! She also has similar authoritarian powers over the following nations: Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Canada, Grenada, Jamaica, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Solomon Islands, and Tuvalu.
    3. She's immune from prosecution!
    4. While the peasants need passports to travel, she can travel anywhere she pleases WITHOUT a passport.
    5. Any swan or dolphin you see in British waters automatically belongs to her.
    6. She can opt-out from paying tax if it pleases her, but she doesn't need to because she's a central banker, which means she's allowed to counterfeit as much money as she needs.
    7. Her family and she are spared from ALL Freedom of Information requests, which is necessary, of course, because secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny.

    Do these privileges look like they belong to the resume of a figurehead?

  • The Irish slave trade began when 30,000 Irish prisoners were sold as slaves to the New World. The King James I Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.
    Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.
    From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.
    During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.
    Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly were: Slaves. They’ll come up with terms like “Indentured Servants” to describe what occurred to the Irish. However, in most cases from the 17th and 18th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human cattle.
    As an example, the African slave trade was just beginning during this same period. It is well recorded that African slaves, not tainted with the stain of the hated Catholic theology and more expensive to purchase, were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts.
    African slaves were very expensive during the late 1600s (50 Sterling). Irish slaves came cheap (no more than 5 Sterling). If a planter whipped or branded or beat an Irish slave to death, it was never a crime. A death was a monetary setback, but far cheaper than killing a more expensive African. The English masters quickly began breeding the Irish women for both their own personal pleasure and for greater profit. Children of slaves were themselves slaves, which increased the size of the master’s free workforce. Even if an Irish woman somehow obtained her freedom, her kids would remain slaves of her master. Thus, Irish moms, even with this new found emancipation, would seldom abandon their kids and would remain in servitude.
    In time, the English thought of a better way to use these women (in many cases, girls as young as 12) to increase their market share: The settlers began to breed Irish women and girls with African men to produce slaves with a distinct complexion. These new “mulatto” slaves brought a higher price than Irish livestock and, likewise, enabled the settlers to save money rather than purchase new African slaves. This practice of interbreeding Irish females with African men went on for several decades and was so widespread that, in 1681, legislation was passed “forbidding the practice of mating Irish slave women to African slave men for the purpose of producing slaves for sale.” In short, it was stopped only because it interfered with the profits of a large slave transport company.
    England continued to ship tens of thousands of Irish slaves for more than a century. Records state that, after the 1798 Irish Rebellion, thousands of Irish slaves were sold to both America and Australia. There were horrible abuses of both African and Irish captives. One British ship even dumped 1,302 slaves into the Atlantic Ocean so that the crew would have plenty of food to eat.
    There is little question that the Irish experienced the horrors of slavery as much (if not more in the 17th Century) as the Africans did. There is, also, very little question that those brown, tanned faces you witness in your travels to the West Indies are very likely a combination of African and Irish ancestry. In 1839, Britain finally decided on its own to end its participation in Satan’s highway to hell and stopped transporting slaves. While their decision did not stop pirates from doing what they desired, the new law slowly concluded THIS chapter of nightmarish Irish misery.
    But, if anyone, black or white, believes that slavery was only an African experience, then they’ve got it completely wrong.
    Irish slavery is a subject worth remembering, not erasing from our memories. less

Records state that, after the 1798 Irish Rebellion, thousands of Irish slaves were sold to both America and Australia. There were horrible abuses of both African and Irish captives. One British ship even dumped 1,302 slaves into the Atlantic Ocean so that the crew would have plenty of food to eat. There is little question that the Irish experienced the horrors of slavery as much (if not more in the 17th Century) as the Africans did. There is, also, very little question that those brown, tanned faces you witness in your travels to the West Indies are very likely a combination of African and Irish ancestry. In 1839, Britain finally decided on its own to end its participation in Satan’s highway to hell and stopped transporting slaves. While their decision did not stop pirates from doing what they desired, the new law slowly concluded THIS chapter of nightmarish Irish misery. But, if anyone, black or white, believes that slavery was only an African experience, then they’ve got it completely wrong. Irish slavery is a subject worth remembering, not erasing from our memories. less
