The Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) has released a press release today where they did their own analysis of the excess deaths in Ireland since early March and the figure they come to is between 1,100 and 1,200 which is substantially lower than the "official" Covid death toll of 1700+.

This means that as was suspected the official number was way too liberal with categorizing deaths as due to Covid. This new figure is closer to a regular year of flu in terms of number of deaths and conclusively proves that Covid is barely any more dangerous than flu in terms of threat. What we see here is a slow back track and while the emphasis is still on social distancing, this is merely to give cover to the fact that at a minimum this has been one big mistake and a massive over-reaction but is true of many other countries but not all. It could be viewed as how badly group think has taken over our society because there were moments in the last few months where one dare not challenge the official figures for fear of social ostracizing

This report is from AntiWar.com

In April, an exclusive report published on Mintpress News laid bare an "unholy alliance" between al-Qaeda and the displaced government of Abdurabbuh Mansur Hadi that a coalition led by Sunni Gulf monarchies has been unsuccessfully seeking to reinstall with the help of the West since 2015. These revelations come on top of previous investigations that have further exposed how the relentless Western-backed war in Yemen has emboldened al-Qaeda militants responsible for multiple terrorist attacks on Western targets in the last two decades. Even if the war is drawing to a close, a strengthened al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) will be the result. ... read full story / add a comment

The Programme for Government produced by Fianna Fail, Fine Gael and the Green Party promises a lot that is encouraging, but on the issue of US military use of Shannon Airport - which the majority of Irish people oppose - it is disappointing. The change of government provided an opportunity to end Irish complicity in the ongoing cycles of war and occupation that have been responsible for the loss of millions of lives this century. The military industrial complex is also the single biggest polluter on the planet (see recent study from Brown University’s Costs of War project). The US. Department of Defense has a larger annual carbon footprint than most countries on earth, and with its global network of bases and logistics networks the US military is the single biggest emitter of carbon dioxide in the world outside of nation-states themselves.

Last week the Irish Independent carried this scare story with the headline above. The exact same story was also carried by hundreds of mainstream news sites too. It is a very good example of the relentless propaganda that has been appearing in the mainstream media during the Covid scare operation trying to hype it up to the maximum and even now they are doing their utmost to keep it going.

It is with this in mind that the story is carried here except we break it down to show at the manipulation works. The first point is that the media and those pushing this propaganda know well that most people only read headlines and the headline itself manages to link the word Coronavirus with some new strange disease. The purpose would appear to not only keep the fear going but to suggest to the population that Covid might be even more deadly and is perhaps mutating into the much promised and anticipated second wave. So it is laying the ground work for the second wave too. ... read full story / add a comment

This story is being reposted in full because it points out that there is probably a sinister agenda being used by the US government behind the sudden and rapid rise of the Floyd protests around the world by the way they are heavily promoted and encourage in the MSN media whereas in the past they always ignore, underplay or discredit anything progressive like anti-war protests, poverty issues etc.

The death of George Floyd is just one of many unjustified murders of black people by the US state. This is not a recent problem and goes back to some degree to the 1960s when black people rose up against injustice in the days of Martin Luther King. At that time the Black Panthers arose and many others and the movement had swung to the Left which scared the establishment. A decision was taken by the establishment to criminalize all blacks and that is what they did. The first step was to launch the FBI CoIntelPro operation against the black panthers and other groups by creating divisions, rumours, instigating gang warfare, outright murder by the state and very long term prison sentences for people in the movement using trumped up charges. The next step which really kicked in during the Reagan years was to massively increase the prison population so much so that today most black men in the USA between the ages of 20 and 30 have been imprisoned basically for little reason. At the same time throughout the 1970s and 1980s the CIA ran drug running into the inner cities as brilliantly exposed by Gary Webb who proved in court the CIA fuelled the crack epidemic. The purpose was to smash black communities. Again largely successful. So here we are today and once again the trauma of what has happened is being used for other sinister plans against the population as a whole. It is in this context that the piece below should be read. ... read full story / add a comment

It's not often, in fact never that Indymedia agrees with Michael O’Leary but in this case we do because the whole pandemic is a hoax. Now some people might think this now means that we agree with everything he had ever said, is saying and will ever say in the future. And it is not. We value our freedom and liberty first and foremost rather than submit to police state controls which have been clearly laid out. We don't agree that if Micheal O'Leary says lift the lockdown then we must automatically say the opposite but that is how people will expect us to think.

However given this pandemic is a hoax it means the forces at work are far far bigger than Micheal O'Leary so he is not likely to get his way. In fact the era of tourism for the masses may have come to abrupt permanent end last March for all we know. ... read full story / add a comment

Now that the lockdown has been secured and people have been convinced of all the manipulation and lies and the police state measures have been accepted, it is very hard to overturn these in peoples mind and for them to accept the whole reason for economic suicide has largely been a hoax.

It is therefore safe for the mainstream media to publish more truthful information and some of them are doing. The reason is because they will be able to say they did -eventually -publish the facts if anything should go wrong -that is resistance against the police state and the second reason is because it will make little difference at this stage since the objectives of phase 1 of the global police state have been achieved.

So it is with this that Bloomberg is now telling us what those you have been paying attention already know and that is the Covid poster child of Europe -Italy that 96% of all the virus deaths suffered from other illness and were already dying. ... read full story / add a comment

With the current rush to fast-track a vaccine that will supposedly stop the Coronavirus, it is important to look at some of the history of vaccines, especially ones developed to supposedly stop viruses.

Perhaps one of the most deadly and dangerous vaccines to ever hit the market in the U.S. is the Gardasil vaccine which supposedly targets a virus that is thought to cause cancer, the human papillomavirus (HPV). ... read full story / add a comment

Story on Zero Hedge gets it right....

How does one define an economic “reopening”? I think most people would say that a reopening means that everything goes back to the way it was before the crisis; or at least as close as possible. Most people would also say that a reopening is something that will last. Simply declaring “America has reopened” while keeping many restrictions in place in certain parts of the country is a bit of a farce. And, reopening with the intention of implementing lockdowns again in a matter of weeks without explaining the situation to the public is a scam of the highest order ... read full story / add a comment

REGRET have managed through Dail questioning to get the actual figures on the adverse affects of the HPV vaccines and the results have been shocking. This is despite the government deriding the REGRET campaign and Minister Harris along with the HSE continuously push a message of total safety for the HPV vaccine, dismissing families of healthy girls who became seriously ill after the vaccination in our calls for an investigation – in a campaign of public derision. We trusted the authorities who told us it was a safe vaccine, and they abandoned us when what happened to our children didn't fit their message. ... read full story / add a comment

If the lockdown is killing more people through suicides than Covid in California then you can be sure it is doing much the same thing everywhere else and that includes Ireland and the UK. It is time now for people to release the true figures on suicide here in the last two months and not some covered up figure. We can be sure that the manipulated is so bad that even those who have died by suicide have been marked as Covid deaths.

Now this breaking news from California by doctors who have got a spine to stand up and say it as it is have spoken out. Unfortunately few doctors have done the same here. The medical establishment is in real danger of destroying their reputation through their sellout of their values and lack of integrity in this crisis ... read full story / add a comment

Prof Neil Ferguson who was the chief advisor to the UK government in the lead up to the Covid lockdown and was instrumental in bringing it about based his advice on the output of his own undocumented computer code he wrote 13 years ago. In the initial stages of the crisis his "model" predicted 500,000 deaths in the UK from Covid. Then a short time later, he revised his figures sharply downward and said his model now predicted to 20,000 deaths. This incidentally is the same number of deaths from flu in the UK in a typical year. So it appears to be the case that the UK has committed economic suicide based on software that no-one else could inspect in advance nor was there any independent verification. To make decisions based on this type of methodology is nothing short of criminal. And we haven't even got to the assumptions used which obviously are on equally shaky ground given one day the model was predicting 500,000 dead and then when obviously some level of correction was done, it was then only 20,000. ... read full story / add a comment

More reports from around the world on the illogical Covid lockdown. It is well known that doctors have been pressurized into being very liberal in assigning cause of death to Covid so as to push up the death numbers and distort the statistics which are already badly and blatantly manipulated.

A Republican state representative asked prosecutors to bring criminal charges against Colorado’s top public health official Thursday, claiming that she illegally falsified death records to inflate COVID-19 death totals.

The weekend just gone by in the UK was a bank holiday weekend and the weather was really good. Millions of UK citizens fed up with the lunatic lockdown defied the authorities and were out in parks, beaches and on the streets in their droves. There were so many the police gave up trying to impose it. Even some pubs here and there opened up and people sat out enjoying the sun and having a pint. All the pubs should open rather than commit economic suicide and they should ask their customers to defend them. Up to that point the UK government message was Stay At Home. Today when many people returned to work it is reckoned the numbers up back to the near 70% to 80% of normal. Some of the London tubes were packed and nobody dropped dead as a result. This morning media figures including many celebrity figures were stunned and wondered what was going on while many who had stuck rigidly to the rules realized they have been fooled and lied to in the past 6 to 8 weeks. ... read full story / add a comment
