SURFSIDE, Fla. (CNN) – The death toll in the condo building collapse in Surfside has risen to 60, Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said, after authorities made the decision to shift the search effort from rescue to recovery.

Eighty people are “potentially unaccounted for,” the mayor said in a news conference Thursday morning, two weeks after the Champlain Towers South condo building collapse, which is among the deadliest mass casualty building collapses in US history, not including acts of terror or fires.

Authorities transitioned to search and recovery at midnight overnight, after determining “the viability of life in the rubble” was low, Miami-Dade County Fire Chief Alan Cominsky said Wednesday.

As a precaution, the building was emptied and the bomb squad was called in to search for any signs of explosives.

WEF calls for replacement of paper passports with COVID-19 vaccine passports, Davos pushes vaxx passports to enforce global carbon taxes

Published

on

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is pushing the replacement of paper passports with worldwide, digital passports.

The globalist forum has also proposed a digital “vaccine passport,” which presumably would be included in the paper passport’s replacement.

“The standard template for passports was created more than a century ago—and many argue that it’s due for a major rethink,” reads a WEF article published last month. “Economists and open-border advocates point out that tethering one’s prospects to a paper-based travel document, one originally meant to expedite queues at European train stations, has proven to be inefficient, costly, and ultimately inequitable.” 

Interestingly, the article admits the eradication of paper passports works against national sovereignty because, as the above quote points out, it’s a proposal spearheaded by open-border advocates who want “seamless cross-border movement” by economic migrants who will fulfill millions of vacant jobs by 2030, presumably for lower pay.

Another article by the WEF promotes the adoption of a digital “vaccine passport” for international travel that would seemingly be a part of a general digital passport which replaces a paper one.

“The expectation is that with a vaccine, some aspects of life will return to normal – especially when it comes to travel – which has been particularly hard-hit. This is where a ‘vaccine passport’ or ‘e-vaccination certification of compliance for border crossing regulations’ might become a required travel document, to enable seamless border-crossing and the harmonization of varying national laws,” according to the WEF article, with emphases added.

It’s noteworthy that both proposals share the same agenda, emphasized above, indicating that they are meant to be adopted in tandem.

A digital passport would also be less private in comparison to a paper one given that it could tie into medical and tax records while conceivably tracking a person’s movements.

It could also conceivably be used to enforce carbon taxes on individual travelers, thereby restricting private travel by making it prohibitively expensive except for, say, economic migrants who are filling jobs for less pay to the advantage of multi-national corporations which will then be less burdened by carbon taxes.

Davos Group pushes COVID-19 vaccine passports to enforce global carbon taxes

The Davos Group is pushing a United Nations (UN) plan to use worldwide “vaccine passports” to enforce global carbon taxes, which would make the cost of travel even more expensive.

The World Economic Forum, which hosts the Davos Group meetings, claims that a worldwide vaccine passport would lead to a “harmonization of varying national laws,” a necessary step to enforcing a global carbon tax.

We’ve already seen the Biden administration working with other countries to collude on an agreed-upon minimum 15% corporate tax rate across the world, so the “harmonization” is not unheard of when it comes to a global tax.

It’s quite apparent that a vaccine passport required to travel across counties would provide the necessary tech infrastructure to pass the costs of carbon taxes onto individual travelers, which is likely the intended goal.

The proposal could lead to international – and even domestic – travel becoming prohibitively expensive for most people.

Miami private school to require students getting COVID-19 vaccine to stay home for 30 days after each dose due to ‘shedding onto others’

Published

MIAMI, Fla. — A Miami school that made headlines for saying it would penalize teachers who got the COVID-19 vaccine is now requiring students who get vaccinated to remain home for 30 days after each dose.

Parents of students at the Centner Academy recently received a letter from its Chief Operating Officer that read in part, “…if you are considering the vaccine for your Centner Academy student(s), we ask that you hold off until the Summer when there will be time for the potential transmission or shedding onto others to decrease.”

The letter also spelled out a quarantine rule for parents who still choose to vaccinate their children.
