No matter how much good faith one tries to put into vaccines, it seems bad news about them keeps popping up. The mainstream would want us to just ignore these facts on the ground and keep the faith and don't question. The trouble is that when you scratch the surface, just like with the Covid situation, you quickly discover it is all not how we are led to believe by big pharma and their many shrills.

This really should be one of the biggest public health scandals of the decade, but instead it's given little attention -mainly because of the high-profile nature of the people and organisations involved.

The United Nations has been forced to admit that a major international vaccine initiative is actually causing a deadly outbreak of the very disease it was supposed to wipe-out.

While international organisations like the World Health Organization (WHO) will regularly boast about 'eradicating polio' with vaccines—the opposite seems to be the case, with vaccines causing the deaths of scores of young people living in Africa.

EU Court scuttles planned fracked gas terminal permission

‘Far reaching’ EU Court ruling on Shannon LNG terminal welcomed

The European Court of Justice has advised the Irish High Court that the 2018 extension by An Bord Pleanála to the 2008 planning permission for the construction of a proposed €500m fracked gas terminal on the south bank of the River Shannon estuary must be considered as a new permit for the purposes of the Habitats Directive and must be subject to a new Assessment under the Habitats Directive.

It's really sad that there is no criticism of the Covid restrictions in the UK & Ireland in either the mainstream press & media or within the political establishments of both countries. It appears the population has quite willingly accepted these totalitarian measures. However, there is at least one or two journalists who have a backbone and have not sold their souls to the system.

As usual their pieces appear not in the mainstream media but in the much maligned Russia Today website where irony of ironies it is the home of what was formerly one of the worst totalitarian systems in the 20th century.

The piece is by Guy Birchall and this is what he has to say:

The latest crazy edict from Boris Johnson’s government is that only six people can meet up in private homes. There is no logic to this whatsoever, and it perfectly sums up their shambolic handling of the entire coronavirus crisis.

The same Gates Foundation which is behind every aspect of the COVID-19 pandemic from financing much of the WHO budget, to investing in favored vaccine-makers like Moderna, is engaged in a major project in Africa which is destroying traditional small farmer production of essential food crops in favor of monoculture crops and introduction of expensive chemical fertilizers and GMO seeds that are bankrupting small farmers. The project, the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), is directly connected with key global institutions behind the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset. read full story / add a comment

This article is by a journalist who has decided to come clean about the sort of pressures put on him on how to report on the Covid scare. The pro-lockdown cheerleaders in the mainstream media have been following No.10’s orders and wrongly branding all lockdown sceptics as nutty conspiracy theorists – but the tide is turning. More and more people are coming round to realise lockdown has been a major mistake. Yet newspapers and TV, here in the UK at least, are still loyally hounding down dissenters and tarring each one as some sort of lunatic who needs, well, locking up. read full story / add a comment

The country must be in a state of shock now that some sanity in the Covid-19 situation has broken out. The Irish Times of all places has actually published an article with this headline. It is unheard of:

Covid-19: Doctors call for ‘utterly meaningless’ daily figures to be dropped

We have known for some time that many doctors know the whole thing on reporting daily cases (as well as previously locking up the healthy and forcing them to wear masks), for a diseases that about 95% of the time only kills those who are very ill already, is a total farce. However mainly due to watching their backs, careers, being social ostracised or downright cowardice, have been afraid to speak out. Now, at long last the first tentative steps have been taken. Perhaps because they realize the entire medical establishment is rapidly losing all credibility because it has gone along with this farce and most people are obeying the rules just because everyone else does. And this brings us to this historic announcement today:

A number of doctors have called for an end to the daily Covid-19 figures, describing them as a “self-perpetuating cycle of misery”. ..“causing huge anxiety” and is “utterly meaningless”.

Are we surprised by this headline from this report written by Peter Andrews an Irish science journalist and writer based in London?

It has been revealed that the standard tests being used in the US to diagnose Covid-19 cases are far too sensitive, with the vast majority of people marked down as being positive actually turning out to be negative

We can be absolutely sure it is the same case here and everywhere else.

This opinion piece is republished here by Gary D. Barnett from Lew Rockwell and in a broad way outlines what is in store in the months ahead and while he is mainly referring to the US, really it is true for all the countries. We have to consider that this Covid pandemic fraud (yes the virus exists and people have died but no more than from a typical flu year) was carried out as part of a larger plan.

Because Covid lockdowns and restrictions are global and the global economy itself was intentionally wrecked, along with getting billions of people to accept basically house arrest and unheard of job destruction, one therefore has to accept the global character of the fraud and the type of power brokers behind the scenes who have the means, power and influence to carry out the widespread changes we have seen. And if anyone thinks this is just a virus scare and it will soon go away, they will be in for a rude awakening but by the time the changes will have been made and it will be too late. If you value your life and that of your children, you better wake up out of the denial because deep down you know it's true anyhow, because this is the moment in time when people need to get a backbone for once in their life.

The political system both in power and in opposition in almost every country is completely bought into the hoax and offers zero questioning or push back on the new abnormal. None of them will accept what is staring us all in the face and that is a global totalitarian technological police state and there is very likely an agenda to reduce the population massively so as to preserve remaining resources.That part may take 10 years to ramp down in a controlled way through induced sickness and sterlization via "faulty" vaccines

Bertie Ahern’s desire ‘to have the power of the Mayor of Shanghai’ is cited in an objection to the proposed fee for objection to forestry applications and appeals in a submission to the Draft Agriculture Appeals (Amendment) Bill 2020. The draft legislation follows on from the 2019 McKenna Report which states that the opportunities that people have to comment and object to forestry proposals represents ‘a barrier to efficient decision-making’ and has ‘created further delays with significant administrative costs’ so the case for a fee is ‘unarguable’. read full story / add a comment
