NSFW – Tolerance


I was thinking about writing a post about tolerance. I’m a fairly tolerant person. It does seem though that those who demand tolerance from me seem to be the least tolerant of and towards me. That was it basically, so a fairly short blog !

The Downwards Spiral Of Spain – Guest Blogger – Charly Priest


Charly and I had a chat about current state of Spanish politics. I asked him if he’d like to do a guest post, and he agreed. The post was written today, so it’s “freshly pressed” !

THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL OF SPAIN.

By. Charly Priest

Hello everyone, my name is Charly Priest, but please be at ease you non-believers. It has been my honor to have been asked by the great Mr. Charisma to write about the political situation in my home country, Spain. Also known as the land of the wild bulls, although at this pace even the bulls are going to emigrate from their own country.

As Sweden Democrats Surge, PM Calls for Refugee Reduction – Swexit ?


I watched this a few hours ago –  seems as though the Swedes have had enough of the crazy EU immigration open borders program. It’s being blamed by some sources, for the rise in violent crime like sexual assaults and rapes of Swedish women and girls, amongst other serious crimes – said to be being perpetrated by immigrants who’ve already been welcomed into Sweden.

Would be interested to hear from any of my Swedish readers on their experiences and views (I’m not in Sweden, so can only go on what I hear from media sources)

Frexit/France – Nigel Farage Interviews Marine Le Pen – LBC


This is back from 2017. She says she has a Frexit plan, or at least that was the case in 2017.

Given the mayhem in France right now, and Macron’s unpopularity – Le Pen I think is slated to be the most likely opponent to take over from Macron.

LBC is one of the better mainstream media sources in UK, with diverse political leaning, left, right and centrist presenters – So comes recommended. It can be accessed by radio in UK, and they also have their own YouTube channel, where they upload their shows.

Coronavirus – The Virus Whistleblower (The Doctor) – Does Anyone Have Up-To-Date News On Him ?


Please can anyone who reads my blog answer this question from one of my readers – The Modern Theologian :

I have a question, if you or one of your followers can answer. There have been conflicting reports over a doctor in China (the virus “whistleblower” as he is referred to in our media) having died. Some reports say he is dead, others say he is still being worked on in one of their medical facilities. As is the case in most US news outlets follow-up stories rarely happen, so the doctors real state gets lost. Have you heard anything?

Trump Addresses The Nation On Senate Impeachment Acquittal


I was recently accused of “wrong think” for admitting to sometimes watching Fox (even after explaining that I do find Fox partisan biased, and that I watch many other not-Fox sources as well). How some people know what I think by taking one word out of context, I have no clue, they must be far smarter than I am, because I can’t do it.

Donald Trump Is Acquitted AND The Fall Of The House Of Pelosi


Double Whammy – These just in from Carl Benjamin, thanks Carl. I also acknowledge looking at the number of views on these videos, seems that Carl’s videos are probably surpassing fakestream media viewing numbers by now. So does that mean Carl is now mainstream ?

Democrats PANIC As Republicans Launch Formal Investigations Into Biden, Announce MORE To Come


I just said in a conversation with another blogger that I didn’t think the Biden’s would face any justice … then this pops up … seems also there’s a suggestion that Trump’s impeachment may be expunged.

I’ve found Tim Pool’s videos interesting and informative, and helpful for interpreting US politics (for a non US citizen). Not sure of his political lean, but I think he may be left or centrist (based on comments he’s made in previous videos)

Coronavirus – Official YouTube Channel – WHO (World Health Organisation)


For those like me who prefer to watch video, rather than read – The WHO (World Health Organisation), has a YouTube channel with many videos relating to the Coronavirus :

Here’s an explanatory video (31-Jan-2020) about the virus (you should watch this) :

Stay safe, and hopefully we all will.

Official Website Link For Coronavirus Information – WHO (World Health Organisation)


The WHO (World Health Organisation), has provided a link for information about the Coronavirus :

https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019

It took quite a long time to load, I guess they must be getting millions of views. So be patient if you use the link. Might be worth printing out any documents, if you think their website could go down.

I listed some basic preparations you could make in my first post about Coronavirus here :

https://doncharisma.org/2020/01/29/coronavirus-could-be-worse-than-weve-been-told/

Especially make sure you have access to bottled water (a person can last 2 weeks without water)

And canned goods, probably protein type (tuna/tinned meats), but also some carbs and fats (eg baked beans), which can be eaten cold if necessary (a person can live 4 weeks or more without food)

Probably don’t go crazy with it, in case it’s not as bad as it might be, buy foods that you’d eat anyway.

Try stay calm, panic won’t help you or others, could actually make things a lot worse. Probably the authorities will get this sorted out, and probably it won’t be a problem for you.

Although I’m becoming more and more concerned as each day passes and reports seem to worsening. Reason I say this, is that YOU (WE) need to take this seriously, wherever you live.

I’m just passing the information on – I don’t know what sources you guys have where you are.

Stay safe, and hopefully we all will.

US$675 Million Needed For New Coronavirus Preparedness And Response Global Plan


This straight from WHO (World Health Organisation), yesterday 5-Feb-2020 :

US$675 million needed for new coronavirus preparedness and response global plan

 

Urgent support needed to protect vulnerable countries from outbreak

 

5 February 2020, News release, Geneva, Switzerland

 

To fight further spread of the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak in China and globally, and protect states with weaker health systems, the international community has launched a US$675 million preparedness and response plan covering the months of February through to April 2020.

 

“My biggest worry is that there are countries today who do not have the systems in place to detect people who have contracted with the virus, even if it were to emerge,” said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General. “Urgent support is needed to bolster weak health systems to detect, diagnose and care for people with the virus, to prevent further human to human transmission and protect health workers.”

 

The Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan (SPRP) for the new coronavirus lays out activities and resources needed by international health organizations globally, including WHO, to implement priority public health measures in support of countries to prepare and respond to nCoV-2019 for a period February-April 2020. The objectives of the plan are to  limit human-to-human transmission of the virus, particularly in countries most vulnerable if they were to face an outbreak; identify, isolate and care for patients early; communicate critical risk and event information; minimize social and economic impact; reduce virus spread from animal sources; and address crucial unknowns.

 

The plan focuses on:

 

Rapidly establishing international coordination and operational support;
Scaling up country readiness and response operations;
Accelerating priority research and innovation.
“The effectiveness of outbreak response depends on the preparedness measures put in place before outbreaks strike,” said Dr Mike Ryan, head of WHO’s Health Emergencies Programme. “That is why we are seeking resources to safeguard the most vulnerable countries to protect people from the new coronavirus before it arrives on the doorstep.”

 

As noted in the SPRP, WHO assesses that the outbreak poses a very high risk in China, and high risk regionally and globally. The risk assessment was based on factors including the likelihood of further spread, the potential impact on human health, and the varying levels of effectiveness in national preparedness and response measures. Accelerated action, as called for in the plan, can address these risks and areas requiring support.

 

As of 10 a.m. Central European Time on 5 February, 25 countries have reported confirmed cases of the new coronavirus, including China, where 24,363 people had contracted the virus, or over 99% of all cases. In all other countries, 191 cases have contracted the virus.

Hope you are safe, and stays that way for you. Now might be the time to make some preparations for extended stay at home, ie canned foods, bottled water, grains, pulses etc – for more information, please to refer to my earlier posts.

Coronavirus Update: 24,000+ Infected, Two Confirmed New Epicenters (Zheijang, Guangdong)


One source I heard there’s been 500 deaths in China. This situation is looking pretty serious right now, so please take some precautions, it’s sounding like this may develop into a full blown pandemic.

Sorry the video is 16 hours old now, but this guy is the best information source I’ve found so far. Will do my best to look for more information tomorrow.

Hope you are safe, and stays that way.

Canadian Totalitarian Plans To Censor The Internet


Just saw this – how long before internet in Canada looks the same as internet in North Korea or China ? Where’s Jordan Peterson when you need him ? Is the end of free speech in Canada ?

Great firewall of China, in Canada ?

The news source is relatively new to me – so if you have further centrist-leaning video reports on this issue, feel free to share in the comments section, I’m interested.

Lastly – I AM JUST PASSING THIS ON – I am not a journalist or activist and TBH most of the time not a “serious” writer either (blogging is supposed to be fun?). I’m a centrist, I read and view content from both sides of the aisle (as long as it’s not blatant propaganda, or utter trash) – so I’m sharing this for your information, something you may not be aware of and may be interested in (or not, in which case, just go to the next post). As with any news or report, don’t just take it at face value, do your own research, use your own critical thinking. Kind of obvious really, but best stated, so that it’s clear.

Cheers

ffmpeg One Liner – Still Photo + Music File = Video File


ffmpeg is one of the most powerful video/audio enoding/decoding/etc tools out there. It’s been around for donkey’s years, and used by amateurs and pros alike.

The main downside is that it’s a command line only tool, so if you’re not willing or able to “get your hands dirty” then probably just do a next on this post. If you want to to try it out, there’s plenty of guides accessible via Google et al which will shine a light on the path for you.

ffmpeg is available for Windows, Linux and Mac. ffmpeg has codecs included for just about every photo/audio/video imaginable. As one comment I spotted online eluded – ffmpeg is very very smart, more than people give it credit for.

#THICK Trends On Twitter UK – Mocking Brexiteers And Intentionally Deepening Division


For my overseas readers – “thick” in the UK is used pejoratively to mean stupid, low IQ or poorly educated. Recipients of being called “thick” would also see it as condescending, and vain on the part of the person using the term. Bit like the “R” word in the US (which I won’t put here as I got told off last time I used it)

#Thick trending on Twitter – because people didn’t like 2016 referendum result, didn’t like that they weren’t able to overturn it in 4 years of trying, didn’t like that they lost the general election and didn’t like that on Friday the UK left the EU. Oh, and didn’t like it that people sang our national anthem “God Save The Queen” to mark leaving.
