People in France who enter a bar or restaurant without a COVID pass face 6 months in jail, while business owners who fail to check their status face a 1 year prison sentence and a €45,000 fine.

Yes, really.

The punishments are part of a draconian effort by the French government to force citizens to get the coronavirus jab amidst multiple unruly protests across numerous major cities.

President Emmanuel Macron announced earlier this week that those unable to prove they’re vaccinated or a negative COVID test (at their own cost) will be banned from using public transport, entering a cinema, shopping mall, bar, cafe, restaurant and other venues from August 1st.

“People unable to present a valid health pass risk up to six months in prison and a fine of up to €10,000 (£8,500), according to the draft text of the law, while owners of “establishments welcoming the public” who fail to check patrons’ passes could go to jail for a year and be hit with a €45,000 fine,” reports the Guardian.

The sanctions represent the most authoritarian move to force vaccine compliance in the west, and probably outstrip a lot of actual dictatorships in other parts of the world.

The Guardian rather euphemistically describes it as a “big stick approach,” which would be true if that ‘big stick’ were an electric cattle prod the size of the One World Trade Center building in New York.

The government had to withdraw a similar law back in December following numerous riots, but merely re-introduced the same legislation with even tougher punishments for dissenters.

As we previously highlighted, police in Paris used tear gas to disperse demonstrators protesting against the measures in scenes that unfolded in several other major cities throughout the country.

We are now entering the phase of the pandemic where it’s becoming clear that those who refuse to take the vaccine will remain under the most onerous lockdown measures yet in perpetuity.

Lockdown Advocate Now Says Official COVID Infection Rates are “Fishy” Because They’re Dropping

Calm down, conspiracy theorist.

Lockdown advocates who have repeatedly cited rising infection rates as a reason to maintain restrictions are now saying that those same figures are “fishy,” “suspicious,” and unreliable after they started to drop.

Who are the ‘conspiracy theorists’ now?

Reported COVID cases in the UK have dropped by 22% since Thursday last week and cases are falling in every English local authority.

Up until Wednesday, official day to day statistics showed that cases had dropped for seven days in a row, despite restrictions largely being lifted on July 19th.

The fact that the Euro football championships, ‘freedom day’ and the delta variant haven’t combined to create an explosion of new COVID cases seems to have disappointed lockdown advocates like Professor Tim Spector.

According to Spector, who previously called for mask mandates to remain indefinitely, the “sudden drop” in people testing positive for the virus in the government’s data is “very suspicious”.

“It’s dropped something like 30% in two days, which is pretty much unheard of in pandemics, and remember this is happening without restrictions, without lockdowns, without some sudden event,” said Spector.

“To me, it looks a bit fishy. It looks as if there’s some other explanation for this other than suddenly the virus has given up,” he added.

OK, calm down Mr. tin foil hat.

Spector’s rhetoric is particularly funny given that the media has previously demonized anyone who questions official government statistics on COVID infection rates and death tolls as dangerous conspiracy theorists.

Now that the numbers appear to be disproving the argument for lockdown, suddenly those numbers are “suspicious” and unreliable.

As we previously highlighted, Professor Neil Ferguson, the epidemiologist who predicted there would be as many as 200,000 COVID cases a day by this point, was also proven spectacularly wrong yet again.

This also speaks to the fact that lockdown advocates who have built up significant acclaim and media exposure over the last 16 months are seemingly upset that the pandemic might be coming to an end.

Irate Twitter mobs who have repeatedly demanded harsher lockdowns also seem to be genuinely upset when COVID infection rates and death tolls begin to drop.

While all the time grandstanding as “kind” and “compassionate” as they screech at you for “killing granny.”

Chaos Erupts in Italian Parliament Over Vaccine Passport Plans

Resistance to medical martial law builds in Europe.

Chaos erupted in the Italian parliament earlier over plans to introduce domestic vaccine passports, with MPs holding up protest signs that said “no green pass.”

A video clip shows one MP being pursued by security officials as he attempts to hold the sign aloft before fleeing the chamber.

However, he is followed by numerous other MPs holding the same sign who then move to occupy the room.

The Italian government has introduced one of the most draconian versions of the vaccine passport in Europe.

From next month, anyone wishing to enter cinemas, theatres, exhibitions, museums, sporting events, private parties, festivals, trade fairs, swimming pools, and gyms will have to prevent proof of vaccination or negative COVID infection status.

“The pass will also be mandatory for all those wishing to access restaurants, bars, and pastry shops,” reports SchengenVisaInfo.

Tourists entering the country will also be mandated to sign up for the green pass.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi justified the introduction of the rules by citing the spread of the delta variant.

“The Delta variant is threatening. It spreads much more quickly than other variants. I invite all Italians to get vaccinated and to do so straight away. Without vaccinations, we’d have to close everything again,” Draghi said.

As we highlighted last week, Italians have been vociferously protesting against the measure, with demonstrators in Turin chanting “no dictatorship” during one rally.

Australia Calls in Military to Enforce Lockdown

Authorities in Australia have called in the military to occupy parts of Sydney and enforce the country’s latest draconian COVID-19 lockdown.

Hundreds of military personnel will be drafted in to patrol the country’s largest city despite coronavirus cases remaining in the low hundreds per day, far lower than other developed nations like the UK that have lifted some of the restrictions.

It remains to be seen whether the troops will be used to police protesters, hundreds of thousands of whom hit the streets of major cities last weekend to demonstrate against the measures.

People in New South Wales are basically under the most draconian form of lockdown where they are only allowed to leave home for work, exercise and food and are not permitted to venture more than 3 miles from where they live.

Mask wearing both indoors and outdoors is again mandatory as the country pursues a bizarre and unattainable ‘zero COVID’ policy which has led to entire towns and cities being locked down after the discovery of just a single infection.

As we have previously highlighted, Australians have been placed under one of the most authoritarian lockdowns out of any major developed country.

A pregnant woman was arrested in her own home for planning an anti-lockdown protest on Facebook, while the state also gave itself the power to seize children from their parents and enter homes without a warrant under COVID-19 rules.

The chief health officer of New South Wales even went so far as to tell Australians that they shouldn’t “engage in conversation with each other,” even if they’re wearing masks, in order to reduce the transmission of COVID.

Australian MP Frank Pangallo also recently asserted that unvaccinated people “will need to be controlled and restricted” by authorities.
