When one set of data reflects badly on the vaccines, their defenders claim a 'healthy vaccinee' effect. When another shows the vaccinated dying more, they cry 'unhealthy vaccinee'. Can they make up their minds?

Julian Assange Has Been Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize of 2019
Nobel Laureate Mairead Maguire praises whistlblowers as outlets for true democracy
Nobel Peace Laureate Maguire gives reasons for nominating thw Wikileaks founder
Following her impassioned plea in Dublin on behalf of Julian Assange at the first International Congress against US and NATO military bases the Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire has nominated Julian Assange to be the recipient of the 2019 Nobel Peace prize.
In her letter to the Oslo Committee she refers to the work of Wikileaks for true peace which includes enlightening us re the atrocities of governments in the name of democracy around the world. She mentions in particular "footage of inhumanity" carried out by NATO/Military - an obvious reference to the footage of the murder of innocent civilians in Iraq, footage of which was sent to Wikileaks by Chelsea Manning.
Citing the present delicate health of Assange in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, she says she fears that he will be deported to the US where like Chelsea Manning he will face unjustified imprisonment.
The full press release by Mairead Maguire can be seen below
PRESS RELEASE – EMBARGOED - MONDAY 7th JANUARY, 2019
MAIREAD MAGUIRE, NOBEL PEACE LAUREATE, 224 LISBURN ROAD, BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND email: firstname.lastname@example.org website; www.peacepeople.com; Tel(O28) 90 663465
RE; NOMINATION OF MR. JULIAN ASSANGE, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, WIKILEAKS, FOR THE 2019 NOBEL PEACE PRIZE
Mairead Maguire, has today written to the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, in Oslo,to nominate Julian Assange, Editor-in-Chief of Wikileaks, for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.
In her letter to the Nobel Peace Committee, Ms. Maguire said:
‘Julian Assange and his colleagues in Wikileaks have shown on numerous occasions that they are one of the last outlets of true democracy and their work for our freedom and speech. Their work for true peace by making public our governments’ actions at home and abroad has enlightened us to their atrocities carried out in the name of so-called democracy around the world. This included footage of inhumanity carried out by NATO/Military, the release of email correspondence revealing the plotting of regime change in Middle Eastern countries, and the parts our elected officials paid in deceiving the public. This is a huge step in our work for disarmament and nonviolence worldwide.
Julian Assange, fearing deportation to the U.S. to stand trial for treason, sought out asylum in the Ecuadorien Embassy in 2012. Selflessly, he continues his work from here increasing the risk of his prosecution by the American Government. In recent months the U.S. has increased pressure on the Ecuadorian Government to take away his last liberties. He is now prevented from having visitors, receiving telephone calls, or other electronic communications, hereby removing his basic human rights. This has put a great strain on Julian’s mental and physical health. It is our duty as citizens to protect Julian’s human rights and freedom of speech as he has fought for ours on a global stage.
It is my great fear that Julian, who is an innocent man, will be deported to the U.S. where he will face unjustified imprisonment. We have seen this happen to Chelsea (Bradley) Manning who allegedly supplied Wikileaks with sensitive information from NATO/US Middle Eastern Wars and subsequently spent multiple years in solitary confinement in an American prison. If the US succeeds in their plan to extradite Julian Assange to US to face a Grand Jury, this will silence journalists and whistle-blowers around the world, in fear of dire repercussions.
Julian Assange meets all criteria for the Nobel Peace Prize. Through his release of hidden information to the public we are no longer naďve to the atrocities of war, we are no longer oblivious to the connections between big Business, the acquisition of resources, and the spoils of war.
As his human rights and freedom are in jeopardy the Nobel Peace Prize would afford Julian much greater protection from Government forces.
Over the years there have been controversies over the Nobel Peace Prize and some of those to whom it has been awarded. Sadly, I believe it has moved from its original intentions and meaning. It was Alfred Nobel’s will that the prize would support and protect individuals at threat from Government forces in their fight for nonviolence and peace, by bringing awareness to their precarious situations.
Through awarding Julian Assange the Nobel Peace Prize, he and others like him, will receive the protection they truly deserve.
It is my hope that by this we can rediscover the true definition of the Nobel Peace Prize.
I also call on all people to bring awareness to Julian’s situation and support him in his struggle for basic human rights, freedom of speech, and peace.’
