THE BOTSWANA OMICRON "BOO" VARIANT

Mad biotech scientists are sounding the alarm on the new boogie man mutant variant. Four cases spotted in Botswana; and it has already been found in three countries since November 11. Six cases have been detected in South Africa, and one more was later registered in Hong Kong. Be very afraid and prepare for lockdown and another Dark Winter. – Covid strain ‘worse than Delta’ found in 3 countries

FEAR PORN by the Pressitutes (no need to read more than more - it's a coordinated MSM-mockingbird dissemination campaign):

• From Gibraltar's Chronicle publication of a PA Press Release – Six countries added to red list as UK sounds alarm over new Covid variant – The UK Government said on Thursday that UK and Irish residents who arrive in England between midday on Friday and 4am on Sunday, and who have been in the six countries within the last 10 days, must quarantine at home for 10 days and take NHS PCR tests on day two and day eight, even if they already have a lateral flow test booked.

Spain will only allow entry to passengers from the UK with a valid COVID vaccination certificate. Negative tests or already having had the virus will no longer be enough to gain entry, as they have been until now. The restrictions are set to be in place until 1-31 December.

New COVID-19 Variant With 32 Mutations Found In Botswana Can Break Through Vaccine Barrier

The Name Game:
The hyper-mutated "Nu" variant was first recorded in Botswana. The B.1.1.529 variant is already being called "Nu" in some quarters, but it remains to be seen if this will become its official name. Nature said Nu was the likely choice as it is the next available letter in the Greek alphabet. The variant has been labelled Omicron by the WHO, with the most concerning variants given names from the Greek alphabet – What is the Omicron Covid variant? Everything you need to know

“The Omicron Variant” – Magic pills, or solving the Africa problem?

If you want to know exactly how the Omicron variant is going to affect the narrative, well The Guardian has done a handy “here’s all the bullshit we’re gonna sell you over the next couple of weeks” guide:

  • The Omicron variant is more transmissable, but they don’t know if it’s more dangerous yet (keeping their options open).
  • It originated in Africa, possible mutating in an “untreated AIDS patient” (sick people are breeding grounds for dangerous “mutations”).
  • “it has more than double the mutations of Delta…scientists anticipate that the virus will be more likely to infect – or reinfect – people who have immunity to earlier variants. (undermining natural immunity, selling more boosters, keeping the scarefest going).
  • “Scientists are concerned” that current vaccines may not be as effective against the new strain, they may need to be “tweaked” (get your boosters, and the new booster we haven’t invented yet)
  • “Scientists expect that recently approved antiviral drugs, such as Merck’s pill, will work as effectively against the new variant” (more on this later)
  • It’s already spreading around the world, and travel bans may be needed to prevent the need for another lockdown

Boris Johnson tightens rules on travel and mask-wearing over Omicron concerns

Boris Johnson has announced fresh measures to curb the spread of coronavirus including mandatory masks in shops and PCR tests for travellers entering England after two cases of the Omicron variant were detected in the country.

Amid mounting global concern over Omicron, named a “variant of concern” by the World Health Organization on Friday, the prime minister set out a series of steps the UK is taking to maximise its defence against Covid-19.

Speaking at a Downing Street press conference, Johnson said anyone arriving in England will be asked to take a PCR test for Covid-19 on the second day and must self-isolate until they provide a negative test. The rules on face coverings in shops and on public transport in England will also be tightened, he said.

Why the change to masking rules will make people angry - The Post

But some of the other measures talked about today at the Prime Minister’s briefing are so arbitrary and illogical that they will make people angry.

First, journalists queued up to ask the Prime Minister why he is not doing “more” and introducing vaccine passports. It hasn’t yet happened, but it is important to address the logic right away. The fear about this new variant is that it will substantially evade protection from vaccines; Chris Whitty has already confirmed that it can pass from one double-vaccinated person to another. Further vaccine escape would be bad news precisely because it would put vaccinated and unvaccinated people back in the same boat. Along the way, it would destroy the rationale for any form of segregation of the population by vaccine status, such as vaccine passports. To their credit, neither Whitty nor Vallance even bothered to respond to the idea.

By contrast, the decision to reimpose mandatory facemasks in shops is effective immediately. Is there a single scientist that believes upgrading the advice on reusable cloth facemasks in shops from recommended to mandatory for the entire population is a meaningful response to two new cases of a new variant on our shores? As Boris Johnson himself said, the protocols we had in place already were adequate for the previous variants, so any new strategy for the “Omicron” variant is, in theory, all about containment.

The New COVID Variant Scam was Simulated in Israel Weeks before it was “Discovered”

by Brian Shilhavy, Editor, Health Impact News

The flames of “COVID fear” are being stoked again, as the Big Pharma Globalists unleash their new plan to increase profits and exert more tyrannical control over populations by using their corporate media and puppet politicians in an attempt to extend the false “COVID pandemic.”

Within just a couple of days after announcing that a “new variant” has been discovered in Africa, Big Pharma has now promised the world that they are rushing to rescue everyone with new drugs and new vaccines to fight this “deadly new variant.”

What kind of people are still watching this Hollywood-like scripted show and actually believing it is true?

For those who do not worship the medical system as their savior, it is very easy now to see through the propaganda and hype that is broadcast around the world 24/7 in an effort to usher in their Great Reset and New World Order.

What I am going to do in this article today is clearly show how this new variant they are promoting like a new motion picture that they want everyone to watch is a complete scam, and then expose just what it is they want to accomplish through this new round of fear mongering, which is the only “pandemic” that is real, a pandemic of fear...

Two weeks before this current new variant suddenly appeared in Africa and started making the news cycle, Israel, which has been Pfizer’s human laboratory to test their COVID shots, ran a “war games” simulation to prepare for a “deadly new variant” which at the time had not yet been named. They called this future variant “Omega,” and the simulation was carried out on November 11, 2021.

Africa is Chosen to be the Source of the New Variant Scam

Up until now, Africa has been an enigma to the Globalists’ narrative on the COVID-19 plandemic, as the continent has the lowest rates of COVID-19 vaccination, while also having the fewest amounts of “COVID-19 deaths.”

The variant now has a name, Omicron, and while the corporate media is hyping it up and creating fear over it, the people in Africa themselves are not concerned.

South Africa’s medical chief Dr. Angelique Coetzee described the panic as a “storm in a teacup,” adding that she had only seen “very very mild cases” of the variant so far.

South African Health Minister, Joe Phaahla, has also stated that the corporate media is making this into more of an issue than it should be.

'Covid-21': WHO Wants You to Believe They've Discovered Yet Another Deadly New Variant

But leaked documents reveal that this has all been planned.

by Darren Birks, editor Vision News

The fact that a -'Covid-21' virus was described in secret SAGE documents as early as June 2020 suggest that, rather than this being a real threat, that the entire panic has been orchestrated by the World Health Organisation.

In August we exposed the plan to created by Chris Whitty and others from the WHO to create a 'New variant response' that was designed to 'Set the UK back a year'. And, exactly as predicted, Covid-21 will 'evade current vaccines' creating an imperative for yet ANOTHER jab.

in the article we reported that 'Whitehall were secretly drawing up plans for a future Covid variant that, they claim, 'evades current vaccines' that will be used as an excuse for more lockdowns. later in the article exposing the con Prof Graham Medley, a member of Sage, head of the Spi-M subgroup, who has repeatedly called for lockdown over the past 18 months, said it was “clearly something that the planners and scientists should take very seriously as it would put us back a long way”. (For 'would' read 'will'.). “It is not that different to the planning that needs to be done between pandemics – a new variant that was able to overcome immunity significantly would be essentially a new virus,” (Covid-21) he said. “The advantage would be that we know we can generate vaccines against this virus – and relatively quickly. The disadvantage is that we would be back to the same situation we were in a year ago, depending on how much impact current immunity had against a new variant. Hopefully, evolution is slow, so that new variants arise that are only marginally rather than one big jump.”

The Whitehall source went on to say: "All the measures are aimed at two things, vaccine passports and lockdowns starting next winter" adding "The ultimate goal is to have the public, back in their box."

WHO Skips 'Xi' in Greek Alphabet for Naming Coronavirus Variants

According to WHO spokeswoman Dr. Margaret Harris, the organization skipped the letter Nu so that people would not confuse the variant with the word “new” and skipped the letter Xi to avoid stigmatizing people who may have that surname. The statement said:

It went from mu to mmicron – jumping both nu and Xi. Nu the reasoning was people would get confused thinking it was the New variant rather than a name and Xi because it’s a common surname and we have agreed naming rules that avoid using place names, people’s names, animal, etc., to avoid stigma.

Scientists warn of new Botswana variant of Covid with ‘horrific’ number of mutations

Only 10 cases have been reported worldwide so far

by Lamiat Sabin

A new Covid-19 variant has emerged that has an “incredibly high” number of mutations, scientists are warning.

It is feared that the B.1.1529, or Botswana variant – an off-shoot of the B.1.1 – could drive further transmission of the virus.

The first cases found were three in Botswana, followed by another six cases in South Africa, and one in Hong Kong involving a traveller returning from South Africa.

Generally, spike mutations allow viruses to adapt and become more virulent, and more able to evade natural and vaccine immunity.

Dr Tom Peacock, a virologist at Imperial College London, said the variant could be “of real concern” as its 32 mutations in its spike protein could enable it to more easily evade a person’s immune system and spread to more people.

(It seems this propaganda has been going on for centuries, that is, fear, fear, fear controlling the masses into illogical hysteria.)

Ten OMICRON “variant” predictions for 2022 and beyond… globalist authoritarian playbook stripped naked

The omicron “variant” media hysteria is pure fiction. It’s nothing but a 1984-style Orwellian psychological terrorism operation that has been engineered to keep the populations of the world enslaved and obedient while terrorist governments carry out their global depopulation / genocide programs.

The evil genius of this narrative is that it requires no evidence whatsoever. Since no one can actually see a “variant” — and since no isolated omicron viral samples exist anywhere in the world for lab test confirmations — a coordinated mass media hysteria campaign simply implants human consciousness with the illusion of omicron, accompanied by extreme fear.

To date, no one in America has even been diagnosed with the variant, and no one has died from it anywhere on the planet. Yet thanks to mass media journo-terrorism, half of America is now freaking out over something that likely doesn’t exist at all. “Omicron” is almost certainly a coordinated fabrication.

Yet out of nowhere, the media has managed to program the population to lose their minds upon mention of the word, “mutations.” Although random mutations in genetic material take place literally millions of times each day in every human being’s own body, suddenly “mutations” are the scariest thing imaginable, according to the hyperventilating media. (Which is why I call omicron a “scariant,” not a variant.)

Over the last two years, globalists have confirmed that FEAR, not “science,” is their ultimate mechanism of control over humanity

Remember when we were all told in 2020 that if just 60 – 70% of the country agreed to take two shots, everything would return to normal and covid would be over? It was all a calculated lie from the start.

The lie promised freedom if people would just comply, but what it delivered was tyranny and fear… along with never-ending obedience to government-coerced vaccine compliance.

What 2020 and 2021 have now exhaustively proven to the globalists is that fear is their ultimate weapon against humanity. Through the use of coordinated fear, they can convince about half the population of the world to be injected with deadly spike protein gene therapy shots that will kill them over time. Conveniently, all those deaths can be blamed on something else — like cancer — thereby avoiding any blame being focused on the vaccines.

Why is there already a 29X increase in stillborn babies, by the way? As Steve Kirsch writes at Substack.com:

There is a 29X increase in the rate of stillborn babies in Waterloo, Ontario that started after vaccination program rolled out. All the mothers of the stillborn babies were vaccinated…

Yes, this is a big deal. But nobody is listening. Cardiac risk could go up 1,000X after vaccination and it wouldn’t matter. Nobody is listening.

As psychologists know very well, when fear is combined with sensory overload (i.e. too much news, too many voices, conflicting reports, etc.), people naturally default to anything that resembles authority. Their rational mind is completely shut down, and they can no longer engage in critical thinking. Once they are sufficiently pounded into relentless fear, the governments of the world herd them into vaccination centers for their obedient depopulation shots. With a page ripped right out of the Stanford prison experiment, they also transform obedient vax recipients into societal “prison guards” / enforcers who demand that everyone else be injected with the same concoction… or else.

This is why so many vaxxed people have turned into raging lunatics who try to force their death shots on everyone around them. (And just maybe, the vaccine prions are eating their brains, too, causing aggressive personality changes…)

Ten predictions for how omicron hysteria will be exploited by terrorist governments to accelerate their murderous genocide against humanity**

Ten predictions for how omicron hysteria will be exploited by terrorist governments to accelerate their murderous genocide against humanity

Over the last several months, I have publicly predicted the release of a new, scarier bioweapon narrative. The coordinated mass media omicron freakout was easily predicted, and many of us across independent media are on the record predicting exactly this.

But what will they do next? That’s also very easy to see, since it all comes from the same playbook as covid. Omicron hysteria will be aggressively pushed and used in every way imaginable to achieve totalitarian control over the masses, who will then be lined up and taken to death camps for efficient extermination.

Here are my ten predictions for Omicron and 2022:

Prediction #1: Omicron variant hysteria will be used to reset everyone’s vaccine passports to zero, coercing people into a whole new round of vaccines for this new variant. Those stupid enough to go along with omicron variant vaccines will be signing up for a never-ending series of spike protein bioweapons injections, which will eventually kill them...

South African doctor Angelique Coetzee, who raised alarm over Omicron variant, says symptoms are ‘unusual but mild’; and no loss of sense of smell and taste

The doctor who raised the alarm over the Omicron variant said patients had shown ‘unusual but mild’ symptoms.

Dr Angelique Coetzee was alerted to the possibility of a new variant when locals near her Pretoria practice had symptoms that did not fit the ‘traditional’ mould of Covid.

None of them suffered from a loss of taste or smell – both of which are part of the globally recognised symptoms of coronavirus.

Instead, patients suffered from the likes of intense fatigue and a six-year-old child with a high pulse rate, the Mirror reports.

Dr Coetzee, who chairs South Africa’s Medical Association, said: “Their symptoms were so different and so mild from those I had treated before.”

On November 18, when four family members all tested positive for Covid with complete exhaustion, she informed the country’s vaccine advisory committee.

She said in total about two dozen of her patients have tested positive Covid with symptoms of Omicron – which the world is now scrambling to contain with various travel bans.

They were mostly healthy men who turned up “feeling so tired” and about half of them had not even had a single dose – a prevalent issue in South Africa and in swathes of the African continent.

South African scientists say Omicron is behind a sharp rise of cases in the country’s Gauteng province.

There is NO test for Covid. The PCR test is not able to diagnose any virus, so this is just more lies to keep the sheeple scared into compliance with the evil agenda.

Despite a flurry of international panic over the new COVID mutation, South Africa’s medical chief says the issue is a “storm in a teacup,” noting that the country has only recorded “very mild cases” of the new strain.

Dr. Coetzee - "So far what we've seen in very very mild cases so not sure why we are all up in arms."

It's panto season.

Roger Watson offers his take on Omicron from Yorkshire:

We were led to believe, in March 2020, that the end was nigh.

Humanity was on the verge of a catastrophe and that 250,000 of us were going to die imminently of Covid-19 in the UK alone.

To date the official figure (‘with’/‘of’/‘recovered but hit by a bus’/’falsely attributed’—take your pick) remains under 150,000 Covid related deaths, the vast majority of which were not in young or healthy people. The picture regarding excess deaths over the Covid period is complicated. Many countries have experienced periods of excess death but not all of them attributed to Covid-19 and we can expect an increase in excess deaths due to a series of undiagnosed conditions, including cancer. We have had the delta variant (more contagious but less serious than the original) and even the ‘Yorkshire’ variant. This one swelled the breasts of all those who live in Yorkshire with pride (‘by gum, our own variant’). Sadly, it seems to have been a late April Fool joke. Most of us are still here.

Now with the omicron variant we have another attempt to strike terror into the hearts of the nation despite the fact that the South African scientist who identified it did not seem to be too concerned about it.

But once again, those who enjoy controlling our lives have the excuse they need to start turning the control dial up to eleven once again. Quick off the mark, and true to form, Western Australia has pulled up the drawbridge. The US, at the time of writing with no omicron variant cases, has shut its border to a tranche of southern African countries. Israel has closed its borders completely. However, the variant is appearing almost everywhere now in Europe (seek and ye shall find, of course) and it is hard to see what travel bans will do except great harm to the economies of South Africa and neighbouring states.

Darren Birks of Vision News offers his take:

Omicron, then, is a Godsend for Whitty and Vallance. It enables them to claim vaccines alone won't be enough whilst also increasing the imperative to take more. Its emergence, in the last week of November, is also incredibly fortuitous for the technocrats.

But does the Omicron story pass the sniff test? No, of course it doesn't. The timing of its discovery appears dubious to say the least. According to the World Health Organisation Omicron was discovered on Wednesday; reported to the WHO on Thursday and the first 2 cases of it were discovered in Britain on Friday, with new restrictions and a doomsday prophecy by Whitty on Saturday.

...the sheer speed at which this variant was identified, isolated, codified and classified as being more of a risk than previous variants sounds unlikely if not unfeasible.

The announcement of the new virus comes in a week when some countries had been asked to vote on keeping Covid restrictions, the public's fear of plague stories on the wane, and questions were beginning to be asked about vaccine deaths by the mainstream media.

Omicron is said to be: A SARS-CoV-2 VOC is a SARS-CoV-2 variant that meets the definition of a VOI and... the WHO have decided all that in just 2 days.

The entire story didn't just fail the sniff test, it stank of lies, and manipulation.

Scare stories about previous variants were used to 'justify' the tyranny that followed. The announcement of a new variant just six weeks before Christmas has been done to condition the public for a Christmas lockdown.

Gibraltar has a plan in place to manage the arrival of the Omicron variant, says the Director of Public Health. Dr Helen Carter says all measures are precautionary and temporary until more information is available.

Those who test positive for the new Omicron variant of Covid 19 in Gibraltar, as well as their close contacts, will have to isolate for ten days, regardless of vaccination status.

This is a new measure introduced by the Government in line with the UK announcements by the Prime Minister on Saturday evening.

To date, no cases of this new variant have been detected in Gibraltar.

The Director of Public Health says she is in contact with colleagues in the United Kingdom to stay constantly up to date with the situation there and globally. She says Gibraltar already has a plan in place, should cases of the Omicron variant be detected here.

It is not yet known how much more transmissible this new variant is, how much protection the vaccine will offer against this new variant or whether the new variant will result in more severe illness. As a precaution, the Director of Public Health has advised that if positive cases of the new variant do occur in Gibraltar, their close contacts will be required to isolate for 10 days regardless of vaccination status. This measure will be kept under review.

All of these measures are in addition to the continued requirement for testing of all arrivals at Gibraltar airport and a requirement that all persons residing in or visiting Gibraltar who arrive via any of the other regional airports around Gibraltar from red listed countries should also submit to testing.

The Director of Public Health, Dr Helen Carter, said: ‘Gibraltar is constantly monitoring developments worldwide and already has a plan in place if the new Omicron variant is detected here. At the moment, the advice is to be vigilant. This means wearing a mask where you need to, keep to your social distance, wash your hands and call 111 to arrange a test as soon as you notice any symptoms.’

The Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, said: 'We all have a responsibility to follow the advice from Public Health Gibraltar to ensure that we do everything possible to keep the spread of this new variant detected in the UK and elsewhere in check, insofar as may be reasonably possible.

For that reason, we must ensure that all of us wear masks in shops and public transport. We are actively considering other measures and will make such further announcements as may be necessary. We all want to see our lives return to normal, but we cannot throw caution to the wind."

Temporary UNITL THEY ARE NOT - like in the beginning to flatten the curve.

Wait, weren't vaccines the path to freedom? They lied and will continue to lie. Prove Omicron exists, Agent Carter, without computer modeling and fraudulent PCR tests.

It's only a matter of time (seek and ye shall find), as Roger Watson wrote above. It's arrival is pending, so that they can introduce more restrictions, and another lockdown.

Gibraltar is in Lockstep with the UK – Agent Carter is a disciple for their Covid Cult.

Because the plan is not to disclose that yet. It's all scripted and has to be developed like a story so that Gibraltarians will believe it.

Be afraid of this boogie mutant - Back to SQUARE ONE.

In other words, "Mask up you slaves! We need to remind you of your position." Further announcement have been necessary since the start almost two years ago since this psychological warfare began, “Der Fuehrer” Picardo.

The two important considerations that underpin our advice. The first is THE IMPORTANCE OF BOOSTERS. And this is a really important point. The vaccines that we are using in the UK and globally, were developed against the original wild type virus... Variants increase the likelihood of a mismatch (and the protection provided by the vaccine will be lowered). From what we know about the OMICRON variant so far, it may be that the vaccines at the moment may be less good than against the current circulating Delta variant.

WAIT FOR IT...

One way of reducing this impact of vaccine and variant is to increase the strength of the immune response provided by the current vaccine. In other words, if we can raise the level of the immune response generated by the vaccine, that higher level of immune response will REACH OUT AND PROVIDE EXTRA PROTECTION to mismatch variants... continues with more wizard razzle ma-daze.

BoJo: "Mask up or Pay"

In response to a handful of confirmed cases of the omicron variant of the Chinese coronavirus, the British government will reportedly begin issuing fines again for not wearing masks on public transport and in shops, with the maximum penalty set at £6,400.

Mr Johnson did not announce the introduction of fines, nor did Health Secretary Sajid Javid during his Sky News appearance on Sunday. However, according to The Telegraph, the fines will come into effect on Tuesday following votes in the Commons on Monday.

Those who fail to wear a mask on public transport or in shops will face fines starting from £200. The fine will double upon each offence recorded, with a maximum penalty of £6,400.

The plans include an early payment discount, meaning the initial £200 fine could be cut in half if it is paid within two weeks of being issued in order to encourage the swift payment of the fines, the report claims.

South Africans Outraged Omicron Coronavirus Variant Tied to Them

South Africans, including President Cyril Ramaphosa, complained they were being unfairly ostracized and punished with travel bans.

MEANWHILE - It's already been supposedly transmitted to the Iberian Pennisula

Portuguese health authorities said Monday they have identified 13 cases of omicron, the new coronavirus variant believed to be more contagious, among team members of a professional soccer club.

The Ricardo Jorge National Health Institute said Monday that one of those who tested positive at the Lisbon-based Belenenses soccer club had recently travelled to South Africa, where the omicron variant was first identified.

The others, however, had not travelled to South Africa, indicating that this may be one of the very first cases of local transmission of the virus outside of southern Africa.

Next stop - Spain - Oh wait, it's already there.

Spain reports first COVID Omicron infection – Spain said Monday it had detected its first case of the new Omicron strain of COVID in a man who had recently arrived from South Africa. The 51-year-old was tested when he arrived at Madrid airport on Sunday via Amsterdam and was found to be positive, the regional government of Madrid said in a statement. "The patient has light symptoms and is undergoing quarantine," the statement added.

Anytime now... :gibraltar: Gibraltar will "find" its first case/s.
