  1. @Oh Really & @John Smith: Thanks for the overt confirmation that you have nothing to contribute to society. You get a pass though, because nothing was expected from you.

    Our medical authorities & governmental officials, however, have shown that they are not worthy of the trust placed in them vis a vis our health and well-being (a complete waste of their years of training). Very early into this pandemic, my layman’s curiosity impelled me to seek out answers about Covid-19, because I’ve always taken complete responsibility for my own life. The results gleaned from my research indicated that our medical authorities have been short-changing us. The reason for this is two-fold: They are incompetent; they feel obliged to cover up their incompetence!

    This explains the zeal they exhibited in castigating Dr. St. Rose for going against the narrative they presented to the St. Lucian public, while honoring the oath she swore to, the Hippocratic Oath. In the face of institutional censorship of all frank discussion (the epitome of real science) surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, TRUTH WILL OUT, and Dr. St. Rose will be vindicated.

    To you both, I apologize in advance if my prose is not sufficiently base enough (IKR) to infiltrate your thought processes; but the excellent primary school teachers I had would be sorely disappointed if I regressed to your level of discourse.

  2. Comments seen on the internet, from someone who watched the video of the full interview, to which I linked above:

    “I have now watched the entire Joe Rogan interview with Dr. Peter McCullough, and I can only call it luminous – actually I can also call it totally f**king brilliant, and recommend it unreservedly.

    Why? I recommend it because Dr. McCullough has moderated his persona strictly to that of medical doctor, and Rogan has retained his persona strictly as a bulldog investigator, and between the two of them arises a narrative that I believe can be shown to anyone.

    And if this is true, then a breakthrough in the propaganda war has occurred.


    Several months ago, I was concerned about Peter McCullough. He was appearing on every channel that would take him, as a crusader for the unpublished truth, and with inadequate sound equipment – he was raising his voice to broadcast his point – and he seemed tired to me, at the end of his strength.

    But I noticed that on the Dark Horse podcast he was in his office, with his diplomas on the wall behind him, and his presentation was much calmer. In Rogan, he had a studio setting, and his appearance was superb.

    So much for appearance. As to meaning, McCullough in the Rogan interview became the mild-mannered doctor and Rogan had to prompt the answers out of him. But what results is an overview of the pandemic and the US response that could result in people hanging from the gallows, mild manner or not – an extraordinary discussion.

    Dr. McCullough gives us the citations and the answers to illustrate the last two years in the US, and the how of the response being so wrong, and even some of the why. It’s obvious what Joe is trying to ask about conspiracy, and yet McCullough won’t go there, almost sympathizing with the establishment in its craven and pathetic mediocrity, rather than in its corrupted soul.

    It’s almost as if the witnesses were preparing for their testimony at Nuremberg – and of course, it may come to this.

    I am so pleased to see Dr. McCullough resolve into his greatest strength, which is as a famous doctor who has been momentarily minimized – but that reduction will not prevail. Instead, the people who tried to reduce him will be shown – are being shown – as the nonentities they are. They will face eventual approbation and perhaps even criminal justice.


    Technical note: the video at the link is overlong. The first 9 minutes or so are redundant – the video starts again at that mark. Also, around the one-hour mark, the video has some pauses as the original upload hangs. I’ve tested this with the upload and the download – it’s in the original. Live with it, and after 10 minutes or so it all catches up again. Sadly, this happens right around McCullough’s claim that those who are recovered from infection cannot be infected again – ever – but it’s all there if you persist with the video.


    In the end, Pharma stands indicted by the facts. Rogan and McCullough elicit many of them from the blindness and madness of the last two years. It’s a great interview – I highly recommend it:”

  3. @Keeping it really. While I do agree with part of your statement. Your argument is lacking and incomplete. You left out a key piece of evidence. I’m sure this was not an oversight on your part. Where is the part about “ less likely to die if vaccinated”. The data speaks for itself. Pretty sure where you got this info from, also included the omitted part.

  4. Honestly I need to know the actual death figure we have in stlucia because the statistics are confusing as they use the same period to account for deaths. For example during the period December 1 to December 11 . We had two deaths reported about two days ago. Yet today we have 5 deaths and the period was between November 29 to December 13. If my calculations and what I learnt at school is correct the next set of death recorded should be between the period December 14 to whatever date. December 11 would have already fall in the period covered up to December 11 and everything before that. Why cover dec 11 again in the period up to December 13. Can the cmo or whichever health officials come clarify and do it in a forum where the public can ask questions. I am truly lost because if the are not correct and we are in how we see the calculations it means that they are giving us more deaths than we actually have. Waiting on clarification please. Thanks

  5. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am appalled at the low level of professionalism by St. Lucia’s medical authorities and governmental ministry, in their daily press releases, regarding the Covid-19 situation. To my mind, some low-level clerk is tasked daily with just taking a press release template and plugging in the numbers for the deaths and new cases that have been recorded from the previous day, and sending it to a mailing list of local & regional media organizations. This has been going on since April, 2020, without change!

    I think this incompetence of our medical authorities is a direct reflection of our own incompetence and apathetic citizenship. It explains why our medical authorities have felt quite comfortable in ceding their oversight of our health and welfare to external agencies controlled by Big Pharma.

    I challenge the general population of St. Lucia to raise the level of their citizenship to a standard much greater than just writing in their ‘ti croix’ every 5 years for the candidates who buy their participation in the political game of musical chairs, with a chicken leg and a beer. We need truth and knowledge about the Covid-19 crisis, not the daily pablum being fed to us by the supposed stewards of our national health. They are not concerned with our health; they are chiefly concerned with keeping their jobs!

    I will continue my mission to keep us informed, by providing links to real data we can use to judge the effectiveness of the stewards we’ve hired to manage our affairs. Here is a link to a recent interview of Dr. Peter McCullough, who provides a timeline of how we reached this dismal juncture in the response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

  6. Whether people vaccinate or not, we must build our immune system. Stay healthy and exercise regularly. Vaccinated people can still get and spread the covid 19 virus. Our only hope is in the Lord. Only him can protect us from this designed destruction. Don’t worry, the stronger the variants are, God is way stronger than it. Stay safe.

  7. Irrespective of how one feels about the vaccine. The irrefutable fact is that we all will get COVID. It’s not a question of if, but when. I hope people are ready with their natural immunity, for those hesitant or not inclined to get the vaccine.
