Pieter Stuurman is deeply concerned about the world we will soon find ourselves in. In De Audiokrant he gives a number of examples of concrete lies in the media. This mainly concerns the figures of corona patients who are unvaccinated and who would now be in hospitals. According to Pieter, hospitals are now mainly busy due to delayed treatments that have to be made up. More than 100 billion has now been spent by the government on aid packages, vaccinations, enforcement and propaganda. And that while doubling the IC capacity would cost 29 million. That is 0,3 percent of the total expenditure made to fight the corona pandemic. “It's insane, insulting to human intelligence that people don't notice this. How is it possible that people still trust this openly lying government and media?' According to Pieter, we have to reckon with an incredibly aggressive offensive.
Rico Brouwer is, besides De Andere Krant, the only journalist in the Netherlands who pays attention to the extradition case of Julian Assange. Rico sketched a striking example in De Audiokrant in which he spoke to a few school children who happened to pass by and did not know who Julian Assange was at all. "It's not told in school, journalists don't report about it and it's not on TV." In De Audiokrant Rico reports on the Assange case, in which his physical and mental condition is also discussed. Rico also recently spoke to the Italian Salvatore. A vaccination refugee from Italy who was not allowed to take the shot on the advice of his doctor and can therefore no longer work. He therefore decided to leave for the Netherlands and to squat a house. This interview will be online soon!
Minister Hugo de Jonge of Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS) announced this week that an early press conference will be held next Tuesday because the infections are rising. New measures are being announced in the Netherlands, but what about our southern neighbors? Veerle Coulembier gave an update on the measures that will also apply in Belgium. Until recently, many people crossed the border to pop into a Belgian cafe, because there was no QR check. In a short time, old measures are now being returned, such as mouth masks. There are still very few Belgians who dare to speak out about the policy in the media. Only Vlaams Belang gives a counter voice in politics, according to Veerle. One of the Belgian talk shows this week talked about prison sentences for unvaccinated people. Veerle is worried and wonders where this is going.
