21 governments have suspended AstraZeneca:and yet it is the most conventional vaccine whilst the others use the untried and untested dangerous method of inserting mRNA. A cynic might say this is a ploy to get people to take the mRNA vaccine.

Tonight people had gathered peacefully in Clapham, south London to pay their respects to Sarah Everard who was brutally murdered last week. Within a few days a London police officer was arrested on suspicion of the murder.

The people present tonight were there because of their shock and horror and were not necessarily there for any other reason. It was a basic human act of kindness and solidarity. But in these strange times of Covid which has been used to usher in the global police state, obedience is the new mantra and the new normal. read full story / add a comment

St Patricks day is the day to show your opposition to this lockdown madness. All around the country people want to mark it in some way.

In Dublin there were two events planned. One was to Herbert Park in Ballsbridge and a second rally to assemble outside the RTE studio which these days simply spews propaganda and lies about the covid situation and has been the center piece of the campaign to keep the lockdown and restriction going and at the same time press relentlessly for permanent police state measures in the form of Testing & Vaccine passports to go to the pub or a football match.

The event for Herbert Park is the location for Le Cheile Day For Mental Health - Families Supporting Families

It remains to be seen if the corporate overlords of our police state instruct their minions to ban this rally

Search engines have come to dominate our lives and Google which is by far the best known has by far the largest marketshare estimated to be anything from 70% to 90%. These search engines have become powerful tools for the corporations owning them as it gives them immense power to shape peoples lives since they control the algorithm controlling what you see when you search the news, check facts or try to search for information which they exclude from the search results because it does not suit their agenda. They also know incredible amounts about their users from their preferences, political leanings, lifestyles, ailments, age, location holiday preferences and practically every other aspects of them. It is time we took our privacy back and with the launch of a new decentralized and community based search engine called PreSearch.org there is now a chance that the tide is turning.

Veteran investigative reporter Leo Hohmann has discovered a 2017 Ted Talk presentation by Dr. Tal Zaks, the chief medical officer at Moderna Inc., where he clearly explains in layperson’s language just what the mRNA technology does in vaccines.

Over the last 30 years, he said, “we’ve been living this phenomenal digital scientific revolution, and I’m here today to tell you, that we are actually hacking the software of life, and that it’s changing the way we think about prevention and treatment of disease.” read full story / add a comment

On Tuesday (March 9th) Senator Rónán Mullen read into the public record of the Seanad as part of the Order of Business revealations about the fraudulent antics of leading members of the so called Independent Scientific Advocacy Group (ISAG) who have spent inordinate amount of time on the national media promoting lockdowns.

Report published recently of the international correspondence and workings of the so-called Independent Scientific Advisory Group which has been pushing for a zero Covid approach. Four weeks ago, the head of the group wrote to its members asking them to "look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty" and to "go after people and not institutions" because "people hurt faster than institutions". read full story / add a comment

While most people in Ireland – fortunately – have no personal experience of COVID 19, virtually every family in the country is affected by the shut-down of schools. Children are missing out on their education and social life, while parents struggle to combine home schooling with working from the bedroom. If they have to go to work – like nurses, gardai, and shop assistants – they can’t call on grandparents to help with baby sitting. In tonight’s programme, we discuss the stark reality of the schools shut-down with a teacher and student from a northside Dublin school and with Chris Brett, a health benefit analyst who’s campaigning for the re-opening of schools in England. read full story / add a comment

Despite the media trying to smear and criminalize in the public mind anyone who attends an anti-lockdown protest, this week many hundreds of brave citizens turned up to the Cork anti-lockdown protests. Many more were turned away by the Irish Stasi working hard to bring in the Irish part of the global police state which we see rapidly unfolding over the past year all around us. Many roads leading to Cork such as the M7, M8, N25 and others had Garda checkpoints denying the constiutional right of people to travel more than 5km. read full story / add a comment

The Tuskegee Experiment has been called the “most infamous biomedical experiment in U.S. history.” That is until this modern day Tuskegee Experiment. If that is not enough reason to rip this U.S. Government apart limb by limb. Remember this. The U.S. Government is also the greatest purveyors of drugs, and all activity that comes with it. The greatest purveyors of all levels of prostitution, child prostitution and pedophilia. Here is plenty of that proof. read full story / add a comment
