    1. Meant to put this quote on another article in relation to all the Ukraine BS, just to show who looking down on us.

      But here’s a quote on those who make the poison jab:

      “Many governments are offering pharma companies exemption from legal liability, but Pfizer has made indemnity demands that have gone way beyond that of other manufacturers. Pfizer has included additional indemnity from civil cases meaning that it would not be held liable for rare adverse effects, but also astonishingly, for its own acts of negligence, fraud, or malice including manufacturing errors.”
