Country star Brandt stirs up COVID controversy

Alberta country star Paul Brandt has strummed up a COVID-19 controversy by saying a doctor has told him he doesn’t need to be vaccinated because he has already recovered from catching the virus.

“An Alberta doctor told me there is no medical need for me to be vaccinated as a COVID-recovered person,” Brandt tweeted on Saturday.

“I’m not an anti-vaxxer. Does anyone else who has immunity from prior COVID infection feel unseen? I have questions. Join the conversation on Facebook. https://bit.ly/3tNLTBv.”

Brandt tweet

“I want to be clear, I am not against vaccines. To be sure, COVID-19 vaccines work well to provide good protection against severe outcome from COVID-19 for individuals and society. It is a good and responsible measure to strongly consider getting vaccinated both for yourself, and for the rest of the community and country,” he wrote.

“What is troubling me is this – Why aren’t people who have had COVID and recovered being included in the conversation? Why are we not being recognized as people who have adequate immunity. Why are people who don’t need to be vaccinated being pressured to vaccinate in Canada?”

The comments from Brandt, who used to work as a nurse in Calgary, drew a storm of social media condemnation.

“If you are choosing to not get vaccinated with mRNA covid vaccines, you are, in fact, an antivaxxer. Get vaccinated. For everyone,” said Neil Zeller.

“Hey Paul…that was an option a while back and understandably some still believe it. But times have changed because the virus has changed. Getting #vaccinated is the only way to have the immunity needed to stay safe. I would be happy to explain further if you’d like,” said Jason Tetro.

Brandy clarified his comment later in the day.

“As I stated in yesterday’s FB post, It is good and responsible measure to strongly consider getting vaccinated, both for yourself, and for the rest of the community and country,” he tweeted.

“I’d like to thank all of the health professionals who reached out and confirmed that this conversation about Immunity is one that needed to be had urgently.”

    WTH is going on in this country?

    Are we part of some controleed science experiment and Canada the petrie dish for mix and match jabs, no treatment and 100% compliance? Treatment is allowed in other countries like Japan, who BTW have far more ICU beds per capita than Canada?

    Even Israel recognizes natural immunity because it is superior protection compared to the vaccines.

    What are they trying to do to us?

    More people need to be bringing this very valid point to everyone’s attention. Several prominent people such as Dr. Michael Yeadon and Dr. Robert Malone have discussed the fact that those who have had previous infection from covid-19 do NOT need to be vaccinated! The natural immunity has shown to be more effective, and longer lasting than the shots (such as Pfizer’s), that are so short lived, they are admitting you will need booster shots for. The MSM, funded in many cases by big pharma, has pushed a false narrative that everyone needs the vaccine. That is not based on science, but lies.

    Brandt is correct . . . his Natural Immunity is 10 to 20 Times Better than any VAX according to Drs. who know.

    People like Zeller & Tetro are friggin Fools . . . you don’t get Vaxed to protect others . . . that is just INSANE. You get Vaxed to protect yourself from Others.

    According to the Makers of the VAX it’s 90% protection . . . until it isn’t.

    In Ireland today . . . 98% of those in Hospital with Covid are Single & Double VAXED!
    Likely coming here in October . . . what to do then ? ? ?

    Interesting Video . . .

    “Country star Brandt stirs up COVID controversy on social media” because all dissenting voices have been purged giving the false impression that everyone unanimously agrees with the Uni-Party

    I got covid in Feb 2020, nasty different little flu that lasted about four days; coughed but my throat was not sore and didn’t even have a tickle in my throat, when I coughed by head hurt like a headache, felt ‘out of sorts’ but not sick, last two days got a runny nose but the liquid was ‘clear and light’ not a normal runny nose. I rarely get sick with anything and never get the annual flu shot; had one about 40 years ago when it got popular and was sick for three weeks. Paul’s doctor is spot on, our immune system works best for this thing, looking at the world with common sense will tell anybody the rest of the story about what’s going on with this plandemic.

Four Alberta doctors file lawsuit againt AHS and Yiu over forced vaccination

“The Plaintiffs oppose being forced against their will to be vaccinated without their informed consent as mandated by AHS,” the statement of claim reads.

A statement of claim was filed Friday against Alberta Health Services (AHS) and President and CEO of AHS, Dr. Verna Yiu by four Alberta doctors opposed to vaccination mandates.

“The Plaintiffs oppose being forced against their will to be vaccinated without their informed consent as mandated by AHS,” the statement of claim reads.

“Further, the Plaintiffs are opposed to disclosing their private health information or have disclosed their private health information with respect to their vaccination status against their will under threat of termination or unpaid long-term leave.”

The statement of claim says the plaintiffs are also concerned the COVID-19 vaccines are “experimental and have not undergone sufficient long-term safety observation,” and claim the ingredients for the vaccines have yet to be fully disclosed.

Plaintiff Dr. Joanna Moser is an anesthesiologist in Calgary and Red Deer and has had severe allergies to past vaccines. Moser is concerned about the risks she faces not knowing what the full list of ingredients are and fears having an adverse reaction to the shot but has been denied an exemption.

The legal filing also highlights the doctors’ concerns that “the COVID-19 vaccines do not provide full immunity,” and may only “lessen the severity of symptoms or potentially reduce the risk of hospitalization.”

In addition to citing numerous Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms violations and medical references disputing the safety and efficacy of the vaccines, the statement of claim also says the doctors are facing “discrimination” and have suffered “vilification and extreme ill-will” as a result of “false public statements” that the “unvaccinated are to blame for the pandemic.”

 Local lawyer, Jeffrey Rath of Rath & Company filed the statement of claim on behalf of his clients Friday afternoon and intends to file an injunction application on Monday.

“We’re filing the injunction to provide temporary relief for our clients and others while waiting for this to get to trial,” said Rath in an interview with the Western Standard.

“The injunction will bring broad-based relief to all those unvaccinated within AHS on the basis that it’s creating a toxic work environment and is willfully creating contempt and hatred towards unvaccinated staff members.”

An injunction, if successful, would force the vaccine mandates to be put on hold until the claim is finally determined.

Banned BC doctor claims COVID ‘the greatest propaganda campaign in human history’

“This is a pandemic caused by the vaccinations and were talking about high school level biology,” said Dr. Nagase.

The current COVID-19 crisis is because of a “pandemic caused by vaccination,” said banned Dr. Daniel Nagase, in an exclusive interview with the Western Standard.

Nagase, a B.C. doctor who came under fire for giving patients an unapproved treatment for COVID-19 while working in Alberta hospitals, has been relieved of his duties in September and is no longer permitted to work in Alberta Health Services facilities.

Early October, a video of Nagase speaking at an event commemorating the anniversary of the Nuremburg Trials went viral with his account of working in an Alberta hospital treating COVID-19 patients with Ivermectin, which is also used in agriculture settings.

Western Standard exclusive interview with Dr. Daniel Nagase

The Western Standard shared the video and subsequent tweets from AHS about the incident.

“All physicians — including temporary locums — are governed by AHS’ medical bylaws when working in an AHS facility. Under these bylaws, there are expectations for all physicians to follow regarding unapproved use of medical therapy,” said AHS.

Nagase said he is not against vaccines, but said “there’s never been anything like this given to humans,” referencing the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

“Medically speaking, scientifically speaking, this is a lot closer to gene therapy than it is other vaccines that have been put out in history,” Nagase said adding he has not had a COVID-19 shot yet.

Nagase said his life has been turned upside down since he began to speak out about his experience being relieved of duty for treating COVID-19 patients with Ivermectin, but added, “I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Since his message has gone viral on social media, Nagase said he’s been able to reach more people with his message that “Ivermectin is a safe medication for coronavirus 19.”

Nagase has researched trials in other countries and said, “in every single one of those studies, Ivermectin worked. In moderate COVID and mild COVID mortality is reduced to zero.”

Also concerning to Nagase is that doctors are being prevented from treating patients as they would have been able to in the past.

“What they did is something that has never been done in 200 years of medical history. They banned doctors from trying a medication and banned patients from receiving it,” said Nagase of how Ivermectin was prohibited from being prescribed and used to treat COVID-19 in Canada.

Nagase has been banned from hospital practice in all AHS facilities, but is still able to practice if he opened his own office. However, Nagase said as of Monday, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta has asked him to voluntarily withdraw his licence.

“And usually when they demand you voluntarily withdraw your licence, it’s because they are leading up to involuntary revocation of your license,” he said.

Nagase also slammed the Alberta government for its handling of the health crisis.

“It has been completely anti-science,” Nagase said who went on to explain “when healthy people wear masks, you are actually driving the evolution for any virus to overcome that mask.”

“This is a pandemic caused by the vaccinations and were talking about high school level biology.

“I’m worried that we are living through the greatest propaganda campaign in human history,” Nagase said when asked why he believes there is such conflicting information around the pandemic.

When asked how he would have handled dealing with the pandemic, Nagase said, “two weeks to flatten the curve and that’s it. Isolate only the people that are at high risk of dying — that’s all.”

Nagase is in Calgary speaking at the Freedom Talk conference running Friday and Saturday. Details on the conference are here.

For those not on Facebook, the video will also be available here on Rumble.

BC Liberals refuse to accept Gunn as leadership candidate

“LEOC concluded that to approve Mr. Gunn’s candidacy would be inconsistent with the BC Liberal Party’s commitment to reconciliation, diversity and acceptance of all British Columbians,” said the party in a statement.

BC Liberals have told Aaron Gunn he will not be allowed to stand as a candidate for the leadership of the party.

“After a thorough review of Mr. Gunn’s statements on social media, both public and private, and after having provided Mr. Gunn with the opportunity to respond to concerns raised by certain of those statements, LEOC concluded that to approve Mr. Gunn’s candidacy would be inconsistent with the BC Liberal Party’s commitment to reconciliation, diversity and acceptance of all British Columbians,” said the party in a statement.

Gunn was less than pleased with the decision.

“Today, it became clear that conservatives, and all British Columbians who believe in common sense and freedom of speech, are no longer welcome in today’s BC Liberal party. I will be releasing a full statement later today, but rest assured, if you think this fight is over, you couldn’t be more wrong,” he tweeted.

Gunn tweet

“mm 7 unelected, non-Indigenous insiders decided my candidacy would be inconsistent with “reconciliation”… Meanwhile, it was ACTUALLY supported by the only Indigenous person in the race,” he tweeted.

“Imagine being so entitled and arrogant that you believe a small group of unelected insiders should decide the future direction of a political party and not its democratic membership.”

Gunn announced on October 9 he would try and run for the leadership.

“I’m tired of sitting on the sidelines … the policies being enacted are the antithesis to common sense,” Gunn told an enthusiastic crowd assembled at the Greek Community Centre in Saanich — a municipality of the Greater Victoria area — moments ago.

“For too long, politicians have promised us one thing, but failed to deliver once in power … under the NDP things have gotten worse,” he said, referring to John Horgan’s government.

“I think it’s time for a change, I think it’s time for renewal and I think it’s time for common sense,” he said moments before officially announcing his candidacy.

Gunn, 31, who planned on running under the banner: Bring Back Common Sense, tried to join six others — Gavin Dew, Kevin Falcon, Michael Lee, Val Litwin, Ellis Ross, and Renee Merrifield — who’ve already tossed their hats into the leadership race ring.

His said priorities would have included scrapping the carbon tax, “serious” health care reform, and opposing vaccine passports.

“I’ll be the only one in the race opposing those, as I believe I have a substantially different approach than the other candidates. I’ve got very clear positions on on the development of resources, on supporting our forest industry, on supporting our energy industry, and a whole bunch of other things.”

Gunn said changes need to come from the top.

“I think it all starts with political leadership,” he said.

“When (police) feel they don’t have the political support, or no one’s got their back, I think that trickles down into what you see in everyday policing issues. I know many police — I’ve talked to people in the Vic PD, for example — they know sometimes they arrest one of these people, and they do all the paperwork only to see them back on the streets in just a matter of days, or even less.

“So I think there’s lots of problems and, provincially, there’s only so much you can do, but you can direct prosecutors to pursue maximum sentences, and to pursue people who are repeatedly and flagrantly breaking the law.”

Gunn served Canada during a three-year stint in the Army Reserves straight out of university, before he went to work for the Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation where he founded and became executive director of the “Generation Screwed” initiative which battled government debt, among other issues.

He’s been on the fringes of the political scene for the past three years or so, and his YouTube videos have garnered more than 50 million views and tens of thousands of followers, making him one of British Columbia’s most listened to political voices. (As an example, his Facebook followers number 20,000 more than Premier John Horgan).

Gunn said he not only wants to rebrand the BC Liberal Party — which is not affiliated with its similarly named federal party, but to rename it, as well, to reflect his and other party member’s conservatism.
