Video footage has emerged of Paris police beating the living dayllights out of a French woman who tried to go shopping without a Covid Pass. The situation is already bad in Australia and New Zealand where they are in crazy lockdowns and Macron in France is doing everything he can to force mandatory vaccinations through by forcing the Covid "Freedom" Pass.

These passes do NOT give back your freedom. Your freedom is yours as and is not something to be handed out to you by politicians with the option to take away at any time.

It is well past the time for people to wake up to what is going on and what is coming down the line read full story / add a comment

At long last if not very very late in the day Irish doctors are finally beginning to speak out in greater numbers. Unfortunately according to the governments own figures at least 85% of all adults in Ireland have been jabbed so since the long term effects are unknown, there is potentially huge damage, harm and misery stored up in the population that could have been prevented.

Dr. John Ioannidis is a Professor of Medicine, Epidemiology and Population Health, and Biomedical Data Science at Stanford University. He was labeled "one of the most influential scientists alive" by The Atlantic and is one of the top cited scientist in the world averaging >6,000 new citations per month.

In March of 2020, Dr. Ioannidis published an opinion essay arguing against school closures, social distancing measures, and lockdowns.

In April of 2020, he published the Santa Clara study which put the infection fatality rate (IFR) at much lower than previously feared, around 0.17%.

In June of 2020, he published a meta-analysis of 23 studies which pegged the IFR around 0.26%.

This is highlights from a 2-hour presentation that he gave on June 25, 2021 where he discusses the 10,000 fold different in fatality rates between children and the elderly, the failure of lockdown policies, and much much more.

This explosive story from the DailyExpose.co.uk may be perhaps the most important story of the whole sad Covid affair for it explains a lot. Many who quickly saw through this Covid scamdemic were aware that the vast majority of deaths were in older people older than the national life expectancy despite media attempting and succeeding to make people believe much younger people were dying. However there was a real puzzle trying to explain why there was a spike in deaths in April if this was a scam considering in most years the annual spike occurs in mid Winter in January when vitamin D levels are at their lowest.

It now turns out we have the explanation and the evidence. In the UK and in Ireland at the start of the lockdown thousands of old people were booted out of hospital within hours and put into nursing homes where they no longer received the hospital care. Not only that, the UK government recommended the use of the end-of-life drug Midazolam (and used for executions in the US) which should be used with extreme care with old people and anyone with any sort of respiratory problems as it REDUCES breathing. The recommended dosage to use was 10 times higher than the maximum recommended limit for this age group. The DailyExpose also have the figures for the amount of Midazolam used and it matches the "Covid" death spike in April 2020 and the second spike in Jan 2021 which was used to prolong the lockdowns last winter.

In the case of Ireland the question is was Midazolam recommended too or was simply depriving the elderly of the sort of care they were getting in the hospitals and obviously not in the nursing home, enough to do the intended harm.

I’ve just been informed via someone senior in the vaccination authorities that they will begin VACCINATING ALL SCHOOL CHILDREN AGED 12 - 15 years old STARTING SEPTEMBER 6th 2021.

WITH OR WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT.

Children are at no measurable risk from SARS-CoV-2 & no previously healthy child has died in U.K. after infection. Not one.

The vaccines are NOT SAFE. The USA reporting system VAERS is showing around 13,000 deaths in days to a few weeks after administration. A high % occur in the first 3 days. Around 70% of serious adverse events are thromboembolic in nature (blood clotting- or bleeding-related).

FDA_admits_pcr_test_developed_with_no_virius_isolate.jpg
international / sci-tech / other press Saturday August 28, 2021 01:37 by 1 of Indy   image 1 image
A document just released by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) openly admits that the infamous PCR test for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) was developed not with actual samples of the Chinese Virus, but rather what appears to be genetic material from a common cold virus.

Since the Fauci Flu in any of its “variant” forms has yet to be properly isolated, the FDA instead used regular cold/flu viruses to produce PCR tests – meaning everyone who tests “positive” for Chinese Germs is actually just testing positive for the seasonal flu. read full story / add a comment

Dr Anne McCloskey who is the only GP in her area around Derry in Northern Ireland treating patients nearly all of whom are suffering from adverse effects from the experimental gene therapy jabs otherwise known as vaccines.

She recently made a video highlighting the serious things happening, her ongoing work and her concerns. As a result the cowards in the Northern Ireland Health and Care Board -or should that be Non-Care, have suspended her.

We urgently need people to make contact with the authorities to get her reinstated.

On Aug 3rd last two were killed after a bus went out of control and hit a pedestrian on Cork road. Subsequently it was discovered the bus driver who also died had a heart attack.

Whistleblower source inside Bus Eireann also informed the people of Ireland that Mark Willis RIP had also suffered serious side effects being ill and had time off weeks before the crash.

His statements are now in the public domain so it will not be possible for an Garda Siochana to get away with closing their investigation with a - "nothing to see here" rubber stamp. read full story / add a comment

Important information

On Thursday the 26th of August, the small time French dictator Emmanuel Macron, the most hated French "president" of all time will come to Dublin for a one day visit.

https://president.ie/en/diary/

Like others before (Sarkozy, merkel), Macron comes to give orders to the puppet Irish "government" regarding various subjects but mainly to push for the fascist vax passport to be extended in Ireland as he has done in France.

WE MUST SHOW HIM AND HIS POODLES THAT HE'S NOT WELCOME IN IRELAND!
