The Lineage “Hoolsema” – Nazi Europe to Sydney

 Michael Roberts

 My story here begins in Colombo in mid-2020 where I stubbed by big toe badly as I walked into the National Archives. The injury turned septic; and I was treated … I would say rescued …. by a Richmondite, Dr Sarath Gamani De Silva.[1] He ensured that I was fit to fly to Australia in mid-September 2020. This entailed extra airfare and quarantine for two weeks at another cost of 3000$. The toe became a godsend because it meant that my enforced stay was at a hotel run by the Health Department and not that run by the Police.

Beating COVID …. Sequential Multi-Drug Treatment

A Medical Friend in Lanka: “In response to Dr Justin Labrooy’s email about Ivermectin usage: I totally agree that people should not self-medicate. It can be very dangerous.”

   Dr Peter McCullough MD, testified to the Texas Senate HHS Committee. He has done a lot of work on early treatment of Covid. He found the best treatment to be sequential multidrug treatment, one drug alone does not seem to work.

This is the research paper he mentions:


The SARS-CoV-2 virus spreading across the world has led to surges of COVID-19 illness, hospitalizations, and death. The complex and multifaceted pathophysiology of life-threatening COVID-19 illness including viral mediated organ damage, cytokine storm, and thrombosis warrants early interventions to address all components of the devastating illness. In countries where therapeutic nihilism is prevalent, patients endure escalating symptoms and without early treatment can succumb to delayed in-hospital care and death. Prompt early initiation of sequenced multidrug therapy (SMDT) is a widely and currently available solution to stem the tide of hospitalizations and death. A multipronged therapeutic approach includes 1) adjuvant nutraceuticals, 2) combination intracellular anti-infective therapy, 3) inhaled/oral corticosteroids, 4) antiplatelet agents/anticoagulants, 5) supportive care including supplemental oxygen, monitoring, and telemedicine. Randomized trials of individual, novel oral therapies have not delivered tools for physicians to combat the pandemic in practice. No single therapeutic option thus far has been entirely effective and therefore a combination is required at this time. An urgent immediate pivot from single drug to SMDT regimens should be employed as a critical strategy to deal with the large numbers of acute COVID-19 patients with the aim of reducing the intensity and duration of symptoms and avoiding hospitalization and death.

Fortifying Self against Covid: Dr Dr. Zhong Nanshan’s Guidelines


Kindly take note of the following practical advice by Dr. Zhong Nanshan (China’s top authority on Covid-19)*.

Dr Zhong predicted that, sooner or early later, the widespread community infection of Covid-19 will be inevitable. This is because there now is increasing numbers of infected people who are asymptomatic but with varying incubation periods moving around undetected. As the above scenario is almost uncontrollable and unavoidable, it’s now crucial for us to prime our own immune system first.

Al-Jazeera’s Incisive Review of Sri Lanka’s Economic Crisis


“It’s not just the pandemic: Why Sri Lanka’s economy is in crisis | Counting the Cost” …. 31 Jult 2021

Sri Lanka’s finances are in a precarious state, but the economy was already in trouble before the COVID-19 pandemic. Between 2005 and 2015, Colombo borrowed billions from China, accumulating a mountain of debt. It was forced to hand over a port to a Chinese company after failing to keep up with payments. But Beijing is making more loans. Asia Frontier Capital’s Ruchir Desai explains why China and India are keen to help Colombo out. Elsewhere, crisis-hit Lebanon has its third prime minister in 12 months. Diana Menhem, managing director of civic organisation Kulluna Irada, tells us little will change with the same politicians in power. – Subscribe to our channel: – Follow us on Twitter: – Find us on Facebook: – Check our website:

Guns Trained on China

A Dinkum Far Eastern Hand**

ONE INSTANCE:  As this story illustrates, the once respected Reuters news agency has succumbed to being another outlet of propaganda aimed at smearing China. … ……………………………………. 

The BBC is also undermining its own professional standards when it comes to reporting on China, Hong Kong and Xinjiang as it succumbs to manifesting propaganda on China, and in China the acronym for BBC now stands for the Badmouthing Broadcasting Corporation.

Hobson’s Choice in Lanka …. The Same Again Manikey! Kota Uda!

Capt. Elmo Jayawardena, whose preferred ttile is “Hobson’s or “Homben Yana” Choice?” 

Way back in the 16th century there lived a man in Cambridge by the name of Thomas Hobson.

He rented and sold horses and was the proud owner of a stable that had 40 stallions of all colours and breeds. Anyone who wanted to rent a horse from him to ride the paddock or journey into the far horizon, paid money and got a horse. There was one condition, the renter was not allowed to select the horse. The ‘wanna be’ rider had only one choice. He had to take the horse that was in the stall nearest to the door. It was a simple matter of either ‘take it or leave it.’  When the word spread about this, it became known among possible horse renters that what they got was ‘Hobson’s Choice’.
