Over the last several weeks, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, from the well of parliament, implored British citizens to continue doing what they’ve been told to do throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Stay at home, if possible. Work from home. Mask up. Get a vaccine. Get two. Get a vaccine booster. Etc.
He then said that these measures are responsible for slowing the spread of the virus and especially the highly contagious, but not very serious, omicron variant, though he was finally honest with Britons this week in interviews when asked if new restrictive measures would be required (you know the drill — forced lockdowns, business closures, social distancing requirements, and so on).
“We have a chance to ride out this Omicron wave without shutting down our country once again,” Johnson told an evening news conference, adding, “We can keep our schools and businesses open, and we can find a way to live with this virus.”
The New York Times added:
The prime minister said he would urge the cabinet to carry on with the current coronavirus contingency measures, called “Plan B,” which were introduced in early December as the Omicron wave took hold. They include masking mandates, guidance to work from home and the use of vaccine passports, but they fall short of the stricter lockdown measures some opposition lawmakers and scientists had called for.
“I do think the balance of measures that we have is the right one,” Johnson added.
If only his government’s health agencies would be more transparent, including the National Health Service.
According to a UK outlet called The Daily Expose, the latest stats that were published by the UK Health Security Agency show that elder citizens and those who are more vulnerable that got a booster vaccine in September and October, those who were double and triple vaccinated “still accounted for 4 in every 5 COVID-19 deaths in the four weeks” leading up to Dec. 19.
“The ‘Covid-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report – Week 51’ was published by the UK Health Security Agency (formerly Public Health England) on Thursday 22nd December 2021, and it shows that the vast majority of Covid-19 cases between November 22nd and December 19th were among the fully vaccinated population,” the site continued.
Here’s how the data break down, according to the outlet:
- Not-vaccinated population = 445,337
- Partly vaccinated population = 94,734 cases
- Triple/Double-vaccinated population = 738,184 cases
Based on the UK government’s own data, that means some 65 percent of COVID cases between Nov. 22-Dec. 19 were vaccinated compared to just 35 percent of unvaccinated people.
That is a massive increase in cases among the vaccinated population, especially in the seven days prior to the Dec. 19 reporting period cutoff. During the reporting period beforehand — Nov. 22-Dec. 12 — vaccinated people made up 59 percent of COVID cases compared to just 41 percent for unvaccinated.
Meanwhile, the total number of hospitalized persons according to vaccination status during the reporting period were as follows:
- Not-vaccinated population = 3,693
- Partly vaccinated population = 361
- Triple/Double-vaccinated population = 4,027
Of them, 54 percent represented vaccinated persons during the reporting period versus 46 percent who were not.
“But yet again the difference between the vaccinated and unvaccinated gets much worse when it comes to deaths allegedly related to Covid-19,” the Daily Expose noted.
- Not-vaccinated population = 889 deaths
- Partly vaccinated population = 117 deaths
- Triple/Double-vaccinated population = 2,796 deaths
According to government data, the vaccinated population accounted for around 77 percent of COVID deaths during the reporting period, while unvaccinated deaths were fewer than one in four (23 percent).
The stunning figures and differences in vaccinated and unvaccinated illnesses and deaths led the Daily Expose to not only question the continued push for vaccines and boosters but also to draw a number of conclusions:
The Covid-19 injections do not prevent infection.
The Covid-19 injections do not prevent transmission.
According to the data it does not look like they prevent hospitalization or death either.
“The only thing that the Covid-19 injections currently prevent is the respect of the basic human rights afforded to every person prior to March 2020,” the outlet noted.

Report: Detroit Man Accused of Setting Fire to Girlfriend Pregnant with Twins Bonds Out for $5,000
A 41-year-old Detroit man accused of setting fire to his girlfriend, who is pregnant with twins, has bonded out of a Wayne County jail for just $5,000 after posting ten percent of his $50,000 bond, according to a report.
“Police said Devonne Marsh got into an argument with his girlfriend at their Detroit home off Packard and Outer Drive last Friday, Jan. 14, and he doused her with lighter fluid before setting her on fire,” WJBK reports.
According to the latest reporting from the outlet:
Devonne Marsh was released from the Wayne County Jail Friday morning. According to documents with the jail, he was released from custody just before 11:20 a.m. on Friday. He’s now out on bond with multiple conditions including no weapons, no drug use, and is ordered not to go to their shared apartment.
However, FOX 2 has learned that Marsh has a hold in Macomb County for other charges so while he’s posted bail in Wayne County, he is not currently free.
A man charged with setting his girlfriend – who was 6 months pregnant with twins – on fire, there was shock that his bond was set as low as $50,000 with 10%. Now, for just $5,000, he’s made bail. https://t.co/8PHFtDRtEY

At about 10:40 on January 14, Detroit Police received a tip “that a woman was being held against her will and tortured,” according to WDIZ. At the scene, officers said they found the 26-year-old pregnant woman, with severe burns to her legs and stomach, lying on a bed in the basement of the home. Officers said she could hardly move.
The 26-year-old is in critical condition with burns to 60 percent of her body, and “It’s not yet known if her babies will survive,” WJBK reports. She is six and a half months pregnant.
“How do you do this to another human being? I can’t – it’s unimaginable,” Commander Michael McGinnis of the Detroit Police Department told WJBK.
“Just incredibly traumatic injuries, I did see pictures and I mean the pain that she must be suffering – I can’t imagine,” he said.
Marsh, 41, was arrested and is charged with “kidnapping/abduction, aggravated/felonious assault and violation of the controlled substance act,” according to WDIZ.
He is a parole absconder with a lengthy rap sheet according to WJBK, including previous charges for guns, assault, and drugs.
“Marsh pleaded guilty in Macomb County Circuit Court to four counts of delivering more than 50 grams of cocaine in 2019 and was sentenced to two years probation,” Macomb Daily reports.
The victim had been too scared to report the abuse she was enduring, and Heaven of Oakland County CEO Aimee Nimeh told WJBK that victims often fear retaliation from their abusers when speaking up.
“Fear is part of the relationship and so absolutely there is fear of retaliation,” Nimeh explained.
She added that victims are often frightened by low bonds.
“The court system can be very overwhelming; the process can be complicated,” she said. “It’s not just that court is a little scary, it’s also that what happens next with that assailant that might be coming out, that might be walking free. How do you stay safe in that situation?”
McGinnis previously said he had hoped Marsh, who ended up making bond, remained in custody.
“We just hope that he remains in custody through the trial process so that the victim can heal without the fear of any kind of retribution from him,” McGinnis said.
Wilson: GOP Wants 2024 to Be Last Election — Like the Ba’ath Party in Iraq
Lincoln Project founder Rick Wilson said Friday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that the Republican Party wanted the 2024 presidential election to be the last election in America.
Wilson said, “They’re trying to throw so much friction into voting and all the sand into the machine, especially in communities they don’t feel will be reliable voters for them. So they are not going to bitch and moan about early voting in a red county. ”
He continued, “This is exactly the kind of mechanism that proto authoritarian states and authoritarian states set up. They want to say who can vote, when they can vote, how they can vote, when the votes are counted. They want to have a veto of the vote count at the end. They want to also say they can bring criminal sanctions and try to intimidate people who are trying to go out and register voters. They want to bring criminal sanctions with these organizations. You know who enforces the law? State attorneys enforce the law. They don’t need an election police force. This is a tool of intimidation. And it is frankly a sign again. They don’t want elections. They would like 2024 to be the last election. They want to be like the Ba’ath Party in Iraq. They have a thing called elections, and the dear leader gets 117% of the vote.”

Rick Wilson: GOP Building a ‘Dystopian Bizarre Authoritarian Police State’
Lincoln Project founder Rick Wilson said Friday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that the Republican Party was building a “dystopian, bizarre authoritarian police state.”
When asked about a proposal by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) to create a police force to investigate election fraud, Wilson said, “Look, if Ron DeSantis forms his own election police force, he needs to start in the Villages, a Republican hotbed, where the only cases of voter fraud in the 2020 election in Florida came from. They were all Republicans. They were all Trump supporters. But I’m going to promise you if he does get his way with the legislature, and he probably will because they are basically like a trained dog for him right now, what will happen is they won’t be in The Villages or anywhere there is a Republican question. They will be in communities of color. They will be in Miami-Dade county. They will be in Palm Beach. They will be in Duval, will be in Hillsborough. They will not be out there looking for actual election fraud. They will be looking for ways to justify giving the dear leader, whether it’s dear leader Ron or Don, the boost they need and using this as a method to intimidate primarily voters of color. This is exactly and explicitly what it is for.”
He added, “I think it’s a sign that the Republicans are going to build this system no matter what we say or do about it in these states where they have control. It will be the thing they say ‘Oh how dare you say we’re building a dystopian bizarre authoritarian police state,’ while they are busy building a dystopian bizarre authoritarian police state.”
