German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach is working hard to restructure the entire German public health bureaucracy, according to the lessons our rulers have derived from the Covid pandemic. The purpose of his reforms are hard to work out, and ominously, nobody at the Health Ministry will explain them. A little-known agency called the Federal Centre for Health Education will be merged into a larger “Federal Institute for Public Health,” which will assume responsibility for “networking health authorities and health communications.” While the Robert Koch Institut (our CDC) will maintain its alleged “scientific independence,” it will lose much of its staff to another new concoction, namely the “Federal Institute for Prevention and Education in Medicine” (BIPAM). Henceforth the RKI will deal only with transmissible pathogens; BIPAM will be responsible for non-communicable diseases and will also take over the public communications responsibilities of the “independent” RKI. So we have 1) a campaign to separate administrative responsibility for infectious and non-infectious diseases, so that we can continue to address respiratory pathogens as a general threat to the entire population and in isolation from the preconditions which make them dangerous to specific vulnerable groups in the first place; and 2) an effort to steer public health much more in the direction of “health communication,” because last time the virus panic propaganda was not nearly uniform or comprehensive enough.
You are so right on your last statement. For us in Texas we saw a summer of bad infections in 2021 after most people stopped masking in April/May of that year. My worst summer ever as a pediatrician. RSV was awful, and in toddlers in addition to infants because they had no chance to build immunity in their first year of life due to the isolation forced on them. Our pediatric practices, urgent cares and EDs were overwhelmed, in contrast to the summer of 2020 when no kids came in. I suspect that is what China is seeing now. And I have no doubts that your assessment is correct- your vaccine advisory board was way too independent during the previous three years and so the masters need to control them better. I am quite disillusioned with our American counterparts and no longer trust anything they say.
I hope you're also following revelations by Matt Taibbi and colleagues over at the Racket and Public substacks, about the Censorship Industrial Complex. They are also testifying at a Congressional hearing today. It kind of folds into this.

I feel that this is not the smartest move on the part of the vaccinators. Seeing as the "independent" STIKO caved in sooner or later to every single demand by the "health" powers that be, the STIKO´s initial and ostensible "reluctance" to immediately rubberstamp everything right away preserved an aura of "independence". Thus, when the STIKO eventually agreed to recommend whatever their masters wanted on the pretence of having given it much serious and "scientific" thought, this lent some appearance of legitimacy to their aboutface. For me this made the STIKO one of the more successful "controlled opposition" operations for selling as many jabs as possible. If the reshuffled STIKO now just shoos in everything right away, it will lose credibility, even among the mainstream media consuming crowd, thereby dimnishing its capability to convince people who end up on the fence for one reason or another.
Lauterbach's move is going to further separate the bien pensant/liberal left from, essentially, everyone else. Their echo chamber is already a disaster. So naturally they double down...
Biosecurity cannot fail. It can only be failed. Real biosecurity has never been tried.
we've got a charity here in the us called the tunnels to towers foundation, which pays off the mortgages for families of fallen or gravely injured in the line of duty police officers and military members.
perhaps we need something like that for principled public servants and scientists who, regardless of their individual moral stature, usually have families to provide for. it's hard to protest too much if your aged infirm mother will be thrown out of the decent nursing home your govt. salary is paying for.
i've been fired from plenty of jobs in my time for refusing to compromise my conscience, but i was only a secretary and it was always easy in those days to find another crappy place of employment, and i didn't have to feed a family then. i don't know how strong my principles would've been if my kid's wellbeing would've been put at risk.
how much are we willing to do to protect those we want to protect us?
“Federal Institute for Prevention and Education in Medicine”
More accurately, this should be the "Federal Institute for Prevention OF Education in Medicine”
Why are these people only competent in the bloodsport known as bureaucratic knife attacks? Why is this their only skill set?
There are still plenty plennnnty of innocent people buying into this garbage.
This is the definition of insanity - keep pushing more and more drugs
"Covid has taught the Lauterbachs of the world that even the pretence of independent public health organisations and advisory bodies is too dangerous to be trifled with."
And the non-Lauterbachs should have learned that independent, publicly accountable organisations are crucial.
I makes my head spin that any academic would be willing to serve on such a thoroughly discredited body. What other than a stain on one's reputation can come from this?
In other words, to force improperly tested, unnecessary and unsafe "vaccines" for the common cold on Germans, they will get rid of the opposition in advance....Germany really seems dedicated to reducing and impoverishing its population...
You have identified demons and openly named them. What the masses of damned sheep do is no longer something anyone can control.
On a good note, a friend's wife delivered a healthy 8 pound full term baby boy yesterday. He was not named Karl. The baby received ZERO vaccines. Both parents are refugees from the failed health system here in the USA and lost their jobs for refusing the coof shots. Neither were "anti-vax" prior to The Madness. Now they are .... I see this trend growing.
All these shenanigans just prove - once again - that not only do they not believe they did anything at all wrong during the Covid fiasco, they believe they didn’t do it hard enough, with even more stringent controls to quash the upstarts.
They can hardly wait to do it again except this time with even more fascistic gusto!
This man is dangerous. I just don’t understand how he is still getting away with this.
I had no familiarity with Lauterbach until I read this substack, but when I saw this picture (I don't know anything about the outlet, and the translation from German is pretty hilarious, and incoherent in a way that in an odd way is consoling, since it mirrors the incoherence all around us) https://www.extremnews.com/berichte/weltgeschehen/b10e191bf5b2ef6
Lauterbach taking a selfie with Tedros Gibberish, Ethiopian warlord made me think cognitive lockdown is coming. They are positioning their pieces ahead of time all over the board.
STIKO would be a great name for Pfizer's mascot. Lauterbach with his ping pong mask frantically running around with a syringe trying to jab people.
