Omicron,if you judge by mainstream media, appears to have legs. We have to decide if it is real and if it is a threat, or if it is a hoax.
Here are a few items that seem to be contradictory.
One thing we can see is that, so far, it has affected mostly the VACCINATED and the symptoms are mild – but will it stay that way?
From RT, via Telegram
All 17 people with suspected Omicron at ‘superspreader’ Oslo Xmas party were vaccinated, officials say
Almost half of the 120 attendees who went to a Oslo work party caught Covid-19, including 17 suspected of having the Omicron variant, city officials confirmed – all the staff had been double vaccinated and tested negative before attending the Nov. 26 event. (NYT)
Norway has now enforced all entrants to the country to take a Covid test within 24hrs, while high infection rate areas have full mask mandates. Last week European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen even proposed a vaccine mandate across the entire EU to tackle the Omicron variant.
Official national figures put confirmed cases at 13 on Friday in what is now the biggest Omicron outbreak
All of the crew members and passengers taking part in the cruise have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19, according to the Louisiana Department of Health. The agency didn’t reveal the conditions of those who were infected with the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.
We could call this the “South African variant”. The number of new cases has increased very quickly
However, the number of deaths has not increased; in fact, they are a low point
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.
Here is Del Bigtree of the Highwire talking about it
ARE THE VACCINATED DRIVING COVID VARIANTS?
This is what Geert vanden Bossche is saying about Omicron
Did Geert correctly predict Omicron?
This was a short section from the interview with Geert Vanden Bossche focused on the risks of mass vaccination in a pandemic. Could he have been correct? Full interview here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJZxi…
Vanden Bossche has started up a Telegram account and a website.
Hi Geert, I read your post on Omicron. I understand your explanation as to why Omicron will start out as a mild disease particularly for the unvaccinated. Infected by the significantly mutated Omicron variant, innate Abs amongst the unvaccinated, will no longer be temporarily disabled by short lived, low affinity Anti-S specific Abs generated by rapid re-infections under Delta domination. They will experience a sort of innate immunity “refresh”. But that will last only until Omicron takes over to rapidly re-infect them – just like Delta did. And the short lived Anti-S specific Abs are recalled. But, what about the vaccinated? What will happen to them as they get infected with Omicron in the immediate / near term? I understand their innate system is neutralized by the vaccinal Abs and these are not going away (unlike the short lived Anti-S specific Abs in the unvaccinated). If Omicron defeats the vaccinal Abs (as Stephane Bancel himself confided), the vaccinated would be left without immune defence, wouldn’t they? Would mean that Omicron could be devastating to the vaccinated?
Because Omicron is well equipped to escape from the neutralizing vaccinal Antibodies (Abs), it could, indeed, break thru vaccinal protection. I expect, that this could lead to a higher morbidity and mortality rate in vaccinees. However, provided vaccinees have had the opportunity to train their innate immunity (i.e., in countries where mass vax campaigns were less aggressive/slower), their innate Antibodies (Abs) could provide some resistance from competing vaccinal Antibodies (Abs). Especially if the latter are declining and not boosted too much by increasingly dominant Omicron. Any help from innate immunity combined with lower vaccinal Ab titers, will slow down pathogenicity such as; to enable the immune system to generate Omicron-matched Antiboies (Abs) fast enough to help patients recover from the disease.
My fear is – this will no longer be possible when the virus continues to mutate and alter its RBD as I described. In this instance, previously neutralizing Antibodies (Abs) could still bind and dramatically increase viral virulence due to ADE.

South Africa research on Sars-Cov2 evolution in HIV sponsored by Bill Gates
I love all my subscribers. I know that many of you have a “Covid is bullshit” and “Covid is mild for most people” mentality. My beliefs are actually somewhat similar to these, as well. I had Covid, it was mild, I am naturally immune, happily unvaxxed, no one I know in the US was hospitalized with Covid (my friend in Russia was), and that also colors my thinking.
However, I also firmly subscribe to the notion that I should speak the truth to my subscribers, even if many might disagree with me about something specific that I share. As an aside, you should not hesitate to disagree in comments and I love robust discussion. This article might appear to play into hands of Covid Cult scaremongering. As you will see in the end, it does NOT actually support pro-vax agenda, but there are serious developments to be aware of. So read on.
Update on severity/virulence
A couple of days ago, I posted an article Omicron may have 2.5-3.2% fatality rate. This was a VERY preliminary opinion of mine. It takes two weeks, on average, to die of Covid, so no data was collected in the Western World yet. So my opinion was based on very little data that I had from South Africa. Since then, relatively little new data came out, but here’s two tweets, one of them is mine.
We heard that the symptoms in Guateng hospitals are “unrelated” to Omicron. This is great but why are the admissions rising so fast with Omicron? Could it be that “unrelated” symptoms are actually symptoms of Omicron? If they are truly unrelated, why are admissions rising?
My tweet “Moderate symptoms in EMERGENCY ROOM”
As time goes on, more data will appear and will hopefully prove my severity estimates wrong, or perhaps the new data will agree with me.
In South Africa, Omicron continues to multiply at about 40% increase per day. This is very high and was NOT seen with any previous strains of Covid.
A party, 120 people, 90-100 ended up infected, even in adjacent room.
A quote from (gasp) CDC. I always fact check CDC due to endless lying and distortions of truth, but this story is everywhere, and does not come from CDC originally.
- In a Hong Kong quarantine hotel, one traveler became infected with Omicron.
- The infection came from another traveler who had NO contact
- Travelers had rooms across the corridor from each other on the same floor
- All was verified with surveillance footage
- Both case-patients had previously received 2 vaccine doses (Pfizer-BioNTech, https://www.pfizer.comExternal Link); the second dose was given on June 4, 2021, for case-patient A and on May 25, 2021, for case-patient B. Both case-patients tested negative by reverse transcription PCR (RT-PCR) for SARS-CoV-2 within 72 hours before arrival.
- Case-patient A showed a positive result for SARS-CoV-2 without symptoms on November 13, 2021 (cycle threshold [Ct] value 18). He was hospitalized and isolated the next day. Case-patient B had mild symptoms develop on November 17, 2021. He showed a positive result for SARS-CoV-2 (Ct value 19) on November 18, 2021, and was hospitalized on the same day. The 2 Ct values indicate high viral loads.
This Omicron appears to be as contagious as measles or chickenpox.
If so, masks will NOT work at all.
Actually nothing will work, not even “isolating”, for people living in multi-dwelling units. Perhaps sitting inside a nailed-shut single family home might work, but clearly all this is impossible for our interdependent society, if we do not want to die of starvation.
Expect Omicron to be all around you in weeks.
Do NOT freak out. Remember that you will die anyway eventually anyway.
There will NOT be time to develop “Omicron vaccine” if it takes 100 days to develop a vaccine.
I will personally NOT employ any precautions for now. I shopped maskless yesterday and plan on doing so today. It is stupid to even try to hide from this. I will be also hitting the gym in the coming days, while it is still open.
Omicron is inevitable. It will bring panic and pandemonium, if Omicron CFR is even similar to Delta and it spreads like chickenpox. Even worse, if the CFR is higher as I wrote previously.
Politicians’ statements today are meaningless.
Persons, like me, who had Covid and have natural immunity, are likely to have decent protection against severe outcomes, which is based on natural immunity developing to multiple viral epitopes (such as nucleocapsid), not just vaccine spike protein that is heavily mutated in Omicron to avoid vaccine-induced S antibodies.
Definitely try to stay healthy, get tan if weather permits, have your vitamin D and other vitamins daily, and lose a couple of pounds this week. Good luck and have fun. Take it easy.
Check out FLCCC for early treatment options.
Food for thought.
Three days ago, I wrote that Omicron is lab-designed (do not call it a “leak”). My own impetus to making this conclusion is that Omicron is a “child” of a virus that ceased to exist in summer 2020. Also all mutations except one are purposeful.
Yuri Deigin published a lot of groundbreaking stuff about it. He seems to be paying close attention to the Durban lab in some of his tweets.
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
Some of the odd research into vaccine evading Sars-Cov2 variants, and passage of Sars-Cov2 in HIV patients, that Yuri Deigin was referring to above, was done at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, sponsored by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The above linked study was studying evolution of Sars-Cov2 in HIV patients, just as was reported as a possible pathway to creating Omicron.
This is, of course, a pure coincidence, nothing to look at, move along.
Here is a totally counter- narrative
BOMBSHELL: Could OMICRON be the CURE for covid? Highly infectious strain with “mild” symptoms could deliver worldwide natural immunity and make vaccines obsolete
Yesterday I interviewed Steve Kirsch, a highly intelligent, data-driven analyst who has been making huge wave on Substack with his articles on covid vaccines (and their long-term effects on humanity). That full interview will be posted today on my channel at Brighteon.com.
In that interview, Kirsch dropped a bombshell. He explained that omicron so far appears to be very mild but highly infectious, following a rather typical path of viral host adaptation. As a result, he explained that if a person had to choose which variant to be infected with, they would vastly prefer omicron, since it has so far killed no one (to our knowledge at this point) and yet provokes the body into producing a powerful immune response that confers immunity against all covid variants (including Delta).
Kirsch was right on the money: Omicron is spreading quickly but producing no serious symptoms in those who are said to be “infected” with it. It appears that omicron, despite being widely hyped by the scientifically illiterate corporate media, may have finally reached “seasonal flu” status in terms of its relatively mild impact on human health.
And that means omicron might be the cure for covid. It could end this entire pandemic without the need for vaccines, masks, social distancing or lockdowns. By simply allowing omicron to sweep through the human population — producing almost zero deaths — the entire world could become immune to covid and we could end all the global madness, including Australia’s totalitarian “covid concentration camps” that are making global headlines.
Pfizer would miss out on billions in new variant vaccine revenues, of course, which is why Fauci and the entire criminal cabal of Big Pharma corona con artists will fight against natural immunity in every way possible.
If omicron is the cure, that would explain why governments are cutting off world travel to prevent it from spreading
Does this realization explain why governments of the world are suddenly banning flights from South Africa and cutting off travel? Maybe they don’t want omicron to spread and replace the “delta” variant because delta produces far higher fatalities that feed into the media’s pro-vaccine fear narrative.
If omicron takes over the world, the pandemic is essentially over and they can’t drive people into the depopulation vaccines. Compliance is based on fear, and without the deaths, the fear can’t be maintained.
This brings us to the realization that the vaccine IS the pandemic. When people are vaccinated and injected with spike protein bioweapons — or the mRNA instructions for their bodies to manufacture those spike protein nanoparticles — they often suffer adverse reactions or even death. These deaths are blamed on “covid” when the real culprit is often the vaccines themselves. Without the vaccines, this pandemic would flame out all by itself.
As the American Heart Association’s Circulation journal recently published, mRNA covid vaccines “dramatically increase endothelial inflammatory markers” and, “may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.”
Furthermore, the recently released Pfizer postmarketing experience document — just released by the FDA under court order — reveals that both Pfizer and the FDA knew in early 2021 that the Pfizer mRNA vaccine was killing people by the thousands, affecting three times more women than men. (See my coverage of this “smoking gun” document here.)
Natural immunity is the only permanent solution to covid, and vaccines simply can’t replace the human immune response
Ultimately, natural immunity is the only real solution to the covid plandemic. Vaccines are proving to be so disastrous that the EU is now recommending booster shots every 3 months… thereby proving that their vaccines stop working in about 3 months. The 3-month schedule will apparently continue indefinitely… or until you’re dead from the spike protein injections ripping your vascular system to shreds.
Covid vaccines don’t stop covid transmission, and they don’t prevent people from becoming infected with covid variants. Right now across the world, most of the people hospitalized with covid infections are vaccinated. Yet the only response from the tone deaf “science” community is to scream, “More vaccines!”
What we really need is more natural immunity, which means we need more exposure to a “mild” version of covid that kills almost no one.
Omicron now appears to be precisely that. It’s the globalists’ worst nightmare: Their bioweapon has adapted to become non-scary and easily beaten without vaccines. It means the Fauci fraud may be approaching its final chapter, and the scourge of covid vaccines and media lies may be coming to an end.
What the world’s leaders should actually be doing right now, in my view, is promoting vitamin D, zinc and other nutritional immune boosters, ending all mask mandates, lockdowns and vaccine mandates, and allowing omicron to invoke natural immunity across the populations of the world. Tear down the covid concentration camps and let the children finally have recess without masks.
We could all emerge from this with new, global immunity against covid. From there, we can begin the process of indicting and arresting all the covid criminals who took part in the covid “scamdemic” and put humanity through sheer hell over the last two years.

From Zero Hedge
As the Omicron Covid strain gains a foothold – and policymakers begin their Pavlovian knee-jerk to more economy-killing lockdowns, it’s become abundantly clear that this version of the virus is far more infectious than prior strains, yet may also be far less deadly. In fact, it may unseat Delta as the dominant strain – which could be great news if its effects are as mild as initial reports suggest.
And while the jury’s still out as far as iron-clad peer-reviewed data, early indications suggest that the ‘hyper-mutated’ Omicron has resulted in shorter hospitalizations, along with asymptomatic infections in many. Last week, South African Medical Association chairwoman Angelique Coetezee said “the new Omicron variant of the Coronavirus results in mild disease, without prominent symptoms.”
Here’s a snippet of a recent report from hospitals in Tshwane, South Africa, which has been hit the hardest by Omicron:
A significant early finding in this analysis is the much shorter average length of stay of 2.8 days for SARS-CoV-2 positive patients admitted to the COVID wards over the last two weeks compared to an average length of stay of 8.5 days for the past 18 months. The NICD reports a similar shorter length of stay for all hospitals in Tshwane in its weekly report. It is also less than the Gauteng or National average length of stay reported by the NICD in previous waves.
In summary, the first impression on examination of the 166 patients admitted since the Omicron variant made an appearance, together with the snapshot of the clinical profile of 42 patients currently in the COVID wards at the SBAH/TDH complex, is that the majority of hospital admissions are for diagnoses unrelated to COVID-19. The SARS-CoV-2 positivity is an incidental finding in these patients and is largely driven by hospital policy requiring testing of all patients requiring admission to the hospital.
So most patients didn’t even know they had it, and it was discovered ‘incidentally’ while they were there for other issues. Let’s assume for the sake of this report that the testing is accurate.
But of course, given that it also appears to be hyper-virulent, simple math suggests that the overall number of hospitalizations should rise, even if a lower percentage of those infected need hospitalization.
Goldman has slammed the ‘lockdown-happy’ reaction to Omicron, saying that the mutation was “unlikely to be more malicious and that the existing vaccines will most likely continue to be effective in preventing hospitalizations and deaths,” adding that “COVID waves are becoming a regular thing — seasonal like the flu the perhaps.”
Meanwhile, the Financial Times on Saturday published a stellar write-up on Omicron – what we know, what we don’t know, and where things may be headed.
One of the journalists on the FT byline, John Burn-Murdoch, dropped a great Twitter thread summing up the data, while noting relevant caveats. He considers the Tshwane report ‘essential reading, along with this thread breaking it down and adding much-needed context.
First up, the question of severity of hospital cases:
• Data from @nicd_sa for the whole of Gauteng province echo the report’s finding for Tshwane: to date, a much lower share of Covid-positive patients in this wave require ICU than at same stage of Delta wave pic.twitter.com/wYHjPsx8dw
— John Burn-Murdoch (@jburnmurdoch) December 4, 2021
One critical thing to note at this stage — as highlighted in the Tshwane report — is the markedly different age profiles of the two waves:
Over first two weeks of each wave, Omicron cases and hospitalisations skew *much* younger. That alone would be expected to reduce ICU share. pic.twitter.com/zmoGbxF4WU

We recommend clicking into the thread above and reading the rest for yourself.
That said, research from South Africa cited by the FT report shows that people are more likely to be reinfected with Omicron vs. other strains – a sign of immune invasion.
Common cold mutations?
Reuters (via SCMP) is out with an interesting report on Omicron after researchers found ‘a snippet of genetic material from another virus’ in the new strain, ‘possibly one that causes the common cold.’
The Omicron variant of the virus that causes Covid-19 likely acquired at least one of its mutations by picking up a snippet of genetic material from another virus – possibly one that causes the common cold – present in the same infected cells, according to researchers.
This genetic sequence does not appear in any earlier versions of the coronavirus, called Sars-CoV-2, but is ubiquitous in many other viruses including those that cause the common cold, and also in the human genome, researchers said.
By inserting this particular snippet into itself, Omicron might be making itself look “more human,” which would help it evade attack by the human immune system, said Venky Soundararajan of Cambridge, Massachusetts-based data analytics firm nference, who led the study posted on Thursday on the website OSF Preprints.
And the punchline: “This could mean the virus transmits more easily, while only causing mild or asymptomatic disease.“
- Dr. Fauci says travel restrictions to be reviewed daily
- First omicron cases discovered in Russia, Thailand
- EU weighs canceling travel restrictions
- White House prepares to order new jabs to treat omicron (if necessary)
- 17 US states report at least one case of omicron
- Omicron nears 1,000 confirmed cases
- South Africa considers vax mandate
- Omicron involved in Hong Kong quarantine outbreak
- Two hippos in Belgium catch COVID
- More than a dozen COVID cases identified on cruise ship docked in Louisiana
- China warns travel won’t restart for a long time
- US averages more than 100K COVID cases per day for first time since Oct. 6
It’s too early to tell whether the omicron variant will actually be able to evade vaccine- and infection-induced immunity to deliver ‘breakthrough’ infections, as initially promised.
But vaccine-makers, including Moderna, whose stock price has languished well below its highs from just a few months ago, are starting to sound like they want omicron to justify another generation of vaccines, if for no other reason than to bolster Moderna’s bottom line, and satisfy Wall Street’s ballooning expectations.
After CEO Stephane Bancel helped to spook markets early last week with an interview where he warned about omicron’s supposedly devastating potential, another senior Moderna executive has stepped up Monday to unleash another round of omicron ‘FUD’.
EXCLUSIVE – 100% of Covid-19 Vaccine Permanent Disabilities and Deaths among Children were caused by just 6% of the batches produced according to official Government data
An investigation of data found in the USA’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has revealed that extremely high numbers of adverse reactions, hospitalisations, life threatening events, permanent disabilities, and deaths among children have been reported against specific lot numbers of the Covid-19 vaccines several times.
Meaning the most dangerous and deadliest batches of the experimental injections being administered to children have now been identified, and by comparing against adverse reactions among children to the influenza vaccines over a number of years we can see that the Covid-19 injections are proving to be extremely dangerous for children.
