I firmly believe there are a lot more worse lockdowns coming instead unless the public unite to say no.

We have got to remember that all these restrictions by government are because they care about us and they want to keep us all safe. And so we can see the Australian police are taking their job over there very seriously by attacking a 70 year old woman on the street by pepper spraying her in the face while she lay defenseless on the ground after been shoved there by the same guardians of not just peace but health too.

Digital rights group CitizenLab has discovered a vulnerability that allowed Israeli spyware company NSO Group to implant its Pegasus malware onto virtually every iPhone, Mac, and Apple Watch device.

CitizenLab revealed the vulnerability on Monday, a week after discovering it by analyzing the phone of a Saudi activist that had been infected with the malware. The discovery was announced to the public shortly after Apple rolled out an update to patch the vulnerability.

A woman in Co. Mayo who had an asthma attack and went to Mayo hospital was sedated after entering hospital and then put in the Covid ward, placed in an induced coma and put on a ventilator. This was against her wishes and instructions because she had given her sister power of attorney before entering hospital.

Despite this the corrupt management at the hospital threw here two sisters off the hospital grounds at 4am and denied her instructions. There appears to be a sinister policy to maintain the Covid fear and bump up the hospitalization and death statistics.

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.
