The depths of depravity of Israel show no signs of finding new lows. In the past few months they have massacred thousands of civilians, collapsed buildings, hospitals, shot at people rushing to get food aid, shot aid works, dropped bombs on large gatherings of civiliams.

Today though at Middle East Eye they report on this story:
Israeli drones lure Palestinians with crying children recordings then shoot them

Locals report Israeli quadcopters drawing people out of their houses by playing sounds of women and children in distress read full story / add a comment

Sunday World is reporting on the forced shutdown of a soup kitchen in Dublin for the homeless because the group were not registered as a charity.. However the group say due to the excessive regulation imposed that if they registered as a charity their costs would escalate and they would be forced to make it commercial. And this appears to be exactly the goal of the government to stop any voluntary soup kitchens and so prevent the likes of 200+ homeless people showing up to be fed on Grafton street.. It embarrass es the government too much

Larry Johnson on his blog reports on the hideous actions of the Israeli state and how they are undeniably behaving like real Nazis.

He writes: If you thought that Israel has a highly professional, well-trained army, think again. The photo above shows the Israelis acting like the Nazis in Latvia in World War II. These men are not Hamas fighters. They are civilians. The bare chested man is a physician. Why is Israel, like the Nazis, photographing their victims after stripping them of their clothes? Also note that in the photo above you do not see piles of weapons. These men were not caring firearms. Just compare the photos. read full story / add a comment

The Israeli "Hannibal Directive" is the name of a controversial procedure used by Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) to prevent the capture of Israeli soldiers by the enemy and it says stopping them from being taken prisoner should be prevented by all means including up to killing their own forces. It seems during the Hamas raid on Oct 7th (2023), that Israel took this procedure to absurd levels and killed a lot more of their own including children to kill just a small number of their enemy. Then they used the death of their own by their own forces as the centre peice of the propaganda drive to launch and justify their genocidal campaign in Gaza.

The background for this comes from a report from Max Blumenthal of https://thegrayzone.com read full story / add a comment

1st Nov 2023 “It became evident to US officials that Israeli leaders believed mass civilian casualties were an acceptable price in the military campaign,” The New York Times reported on Monday.

“In private conversations with American counterparts, Israeli officials referred to how the United States and other allied powers resorted to devastating bombings in Germany and Japan during World War II – including the dropping of the two atomic warheads in Hiroshima and Nagasaki – to try to defeat those countries,” the newspaper added.

Despite this horrifying knowledge, the Biden administration still adamantly opposes a ceasefire in Israel’s extermination campaign in Gaza. read full story / add a comment

There is clear evidence that Israeli has for many years planned to drive all the Palestinians out of their former ancestral lands and to drive them out of Gaza and then later the West Bank. Their current openly stated plan is to drive the South towards Egypt and across the border.

Right now they are bombing indiscriminately all over the Gaza and particularly northern Gaza to destroy everything and drive the people Southwards. At the same time Netanyahu has been embroiled in charges of corruption and political scandal and Israeli society is pretty much divided over his attempts to strip the judicial system of its power and make them political appointees.

So putting things in context, the whole idea that this was a surprise attack is extremely fishy and now evidence is pouring in to show that the whole thing has been orchestrated by sinister forces. The items below are collection of articles but the first is an of an interview of an Israeli settler who claimed the IDF/police were involved in the slaughter. read full story / add a comment

No, not really. Israel did not confess war crimes. It never does. It proudly announced that it will now commit a war crime:

Israel's defence minister described Palestinians as "human animals" and vowed to "act accordingly," as fighter jets unleashed a massive bombing campaign on the Gaza Strip. read full story / add a comment

The NATO proxy war in Ukraine is not going well and the latest incarnation of it, in the form of the counter offensive has failed. The Ukrainian army is badly depleted and all the best troops long used up. The NeoCons who are in power and the real force behind NATO are desperate since the decades long plot to destroy Russia via Ukraine is looking like a complete failure and is their last chance to remain the dominant power. What they don't realize is their uni polar world is already gone.


But they are not about to give up easily and it has been long predicted they would try something stupid like a nuclear false flag incident where they would blame Russia on blowing up the huge Zaporozhye NPP nuclear plant and causing widespread radioactivity and then this could be a pretext for a state of emergency and an excuse for NATO to get involved directly in the war. This would be easily sold to the public but would be a massive and dangerous escalation.

Calley Means has been advising politicians and prominent food and pharma companies and has founded his own company, TrueMed, to expose and change the food industries causing harm that the healthcare industry is profiting heavily. Calley shares from experience working with big food industries and losing his mother to a succession of foodborne illnesses that have everything to do with food that’s leading to cancer, Alzheimers, heart disease, obesity, autoimmune conditions,and depression. read full story / add a comment

Irish Journalist Declan Hayes has written a brilliant insightful article on Joe Biden's presidential visit to Ireland and reveals who is ancestors really were and cuts through the fawning BS that spewed from RTE and the rest of the MSN media covering his recent visit. He writes:

Thank God and His Holy Mother they are gone. Hunter and Joe Biden have left the Emerald Isle and flown back to America.

Thank God and His Holy Mother they are gone. Hunter and Joe Biden have left the Emerald Isle and flown back to America. But not before visiting The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Knock Shrine, which Our Lady herself, Queen of Ireland, visited in 1879, a mere generation after Edward Blewitt, Biden’s direct ancestor, was directly implicated in the Irish genocide of Black ‘47 which still cuts very deep (scratch an Irishman’s imagination and you get a black potato) and which, thanks to scum like Blewitt, was particularly pronounced around Knock.

We must keep working to stop America from being destroyed from within. To stop the cesspool so called American Government?, from destroying us too. That is what real men and women do in these situations, not just constantly complain about it. Here is a situation where actions say far more than any words. Especially form all who know and or claim to know what and where the problems are. We don’t wait for government to fix it, we fix it ourselves. read full story / add a comment

The psychopaths in power in Germany are finding it very difficult to give up their Nazi past and the Covid-19 scamdemic was a shot in the arm for the revival of this behaviour for as this story below shows they want to lock up a 85 year Holocaust survivor because she insists on NOT taking the deadly Covid jab.

The story is reported on rt.com which can be accessed through a VPN.

Composer Inna Zhvanetskaya has reportedly gone into hiding to prevent authorities from forcibly imprisoning and vaccinating her.

Soviet-born composer Inna Zhvanetskaya is reportedly in hiding from German authorities after they attempted to have the 85-year-old committed to a mental institution and inoculated against her will with a Covid-19 shot, German outlet Report24 said on Thursday. Zhvanetskaya was born in Vinnytsia, in the Ukrainian SSR, in 1937 and as a child survived the nazi holocaust

In wars of the current era, the use of drugs is widespread and they are used for many reasons with perhaps the most powerful motive to blot out the fear. In the case of the Ukrainian war there is the added mix that it is one of the most corrupt countries on Earth and there has been many reports that much of the small arms been shipped to Ukraine never reach the soldiers and are instead sold on the black market all over Europe. Combined with the widespread use of drugs this is leading to threatening storm that is about to engulf Europe.

In this report by Vladmir Platov, he documents what is happening.

According to the European Monitoring Center for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), the volume of drug consumption in EU countries has increased markedly this year. And this is despite the fact that in Europe, as a result of the activities of law enforcement agencies, hundreds of illegal drug laboratories are being liquidated, and more than 150 people have been arrested in the recent period alone.

The EMCDDA estimates that around 83.4 million people aged 15 to 64 in the EU, or 29% of the population, use drugs today, with more men than women. Although cannabis remains the most popular substance, ahead of cocaine, MDMA and amphetamines, it has been noted that the range of available substances for drug addicts is expanding due to synthetic drugs.

It is already widely known in non MSM circles that Zelensky was ready to make peace back in March but instead was blocked from doing so by the UK on behalf of the USA / NATO. As a result of that decision, many tens of thousands of Ukrainian soldiers have died needlessly for no good reason and Europe's economy plunged into recession. It is also why we are all paying high energy prices.

In a recent interview of retired Colonel Douglas MacGregor he provides more details on what happened and it was reported on by rt.com

Euthanasia has been in the news quite a bit in the last few years and it is always cast in terms of the right to die and reducing suffering. What is never discussed or considered is that once it gets into the legislation, the scope for abuse by the State is enormous and while you might think it may never happen, given the madness over the last 3 years and the fact that the last two years the full force of the state was used to get everyone to take a dangerous and deadly jab, then it is clear they will quickly go on to use it as yet another tool of the state.

And in this story here about Canada, that is exactly what we see.

10,000 Canadians ended their lives by euthanasia last year. The number is set to rise too, as from next year the country is set to allow citizens to choose assisted dying for mental health reasons with the threshold being dangerously lowered.

This article from the https://off-guardian.org/ explains why we are still seeing reports of severe lockdowns from China and they role they have played in the narrative over the last three years.

From the opening days of Jan 2020 when the West was flooded with videos from China of lockdowns and people dropping dead, it has all seemed a bit strange. The dropping dead videos are clear enough as they were a way to prime people into the idea of people dropping dead which is exactly what is being seen now as a consequence of vaccines injury deaths and the reported dramatic increase in excess mortality since 2021 in those countries where large sections of the population were vaccinated.

However the images of utterly over the top and draconian lockdowns where people welded into their homes in China, remains unexplained until now.

The bloody war in Ukraine egged on and supported by the USA, NATO and EU continues to drag on as well as the idiotic self destructive sanctions is only going to end up to the great detriment to Europe. In this article written by Dr. Seshadri Kumar he presents his analysis and it is important that these are made more widely known.

At the start of the human tragedy that is the Ukraine war, I delved into the underlying causes of the conflict from the perspective of a historian and political scientist. That analysis, “Understanding The Great Game in Ukraine,” is available here.

Events have progressed since then, and an important fallout of the war has been economic. In this article, I look at the role and situation of Europe from the perspective of an economist.

The European Union has taken a very definite political stance on the Russia-Ukraine conflict, aligned with the United States. It has applied 8 rounds of economic sanctions against Russia, and at the time of writing, is working on a 9th package.

New data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) shows that ever since Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines” were launched, the birth rate Down Under has plunged by an astounding 63 percent.

From October to November in 2021, there was a 21 percent decrease in births compared to the average over a 10-year period. From November to December 2021, just one month later, there was a 63 percent decrease in births. read full story / add a comment
