The mainstream media largely ignored the recent Project Veritas Pfizer exposé, yet it has already received tens of millions of views on Twitter. So who is the real mainstream now? asks Nick Dixon.

Boris Johnson argues that we should give Ukraine longer-range artillery, tanks and perhaps even planes. This is a coherent position. By contrast, the position of Emmanuel Macron and Olaf Scholz makes no sense at all.

The recent Project Veritas video reveals that the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine has been a total flop, but the story has been almost totally ignored by American media, and scrubbed from Google search results, writes Eugyppius.

Alternative Referendum Commission Booklet Launched

category national | eu | news report author Monday May 28, 2012 21:19author by éirígí PRO - éirígí Report this post to the editors

Over the course of the last number of weeks every household in the Twenty-Six Counties has received an 'information' booklet from the Referendum Commission. This booklet was supposed to provide an impartial and independent critique of the 'Stability Treaty', but in reality it could have been printed by Fine Gael or IBEC.
austerity_treaty_leaflet_cover.gif

Instead of impartiality and independence the booklet delivers staggering bias and preference in favour of the Yes campaign. It unquestioningly regurgitates the position of those who support the treaty without any reference to the very valid arguments of those who are opposed to it. Countless independent commentators and even many within the Yes camp admit that the booklet could not be objectively considered independent.

Despite mounting criticism the Referendum Commission has refused to acknowledge their failure to remain impartial, opting instead to act as a proxy-press office for the Yes campaign. As we enter the final days of the campaign an alternative version of the Referendum Commission's Treaty booklet has now been produced. It aims to correct the bias of the original version, putting forward the alternative arguments that the Referendum Commission chose to censor.

A copy of this new alternative version can be accessed at the following link: http://www.eirigi.org/pdfs/campaigns/Austerity_Treaty_l...t.pdf.

Please read it and then pass it on to your family, friends, neighbours and workmates. Thursday's vote is of huge importance to the future of our country, so let's make sure everybody gets to hear both sides of the debate before they cast their vote.

Fantastic piece of work. Very clever and funny too. Well worth the small bit of hassle of downloading it. I'm going to forwad it to all my contacts before thursday and would encourage everyone else to do the same.

The referendum commission have got away with murder over the last few weeks. The Banana Republic is alive and well.

Maybe a moderator could give it a bit more prominence on the homepage?

Great piece of work, this needs to be distributed as widely as possible before Thursday.
Agree with the above suggestion for displaying on the homepage.
The more people who see this, the better.
Something like this could make all the difference with those who are undecided.

Well done to all involved.

I received an e-mail about an hour ago from Bill Still, who as some readers will already know is an American documentary film producer and author of several non-fiction books on the EXTREMELY IMPORTANT subject of national money-supply systems; and, who has just completed a short video for Republic of Ireland voters to consider -- should they wish to do so of course -- before they vote in tomorrow's "ESM Treaty" Referendum.

In part, this morning's e-mail from Bill Still reads as shown in the section immediately below:

Using the title "The need for monetary reform, genuine democracy, and government integrity", an e-mail was sent this morning to (among others) some senior officials at the United Nations.

The excerpt in the section immediately below formed part of the UN e-mail text:

"Why is monetary reform so critically important? Because the money power has more impact on citizens day to day lives than the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches.

"Its vitally important to be ready with a workable plan – WHEN NOT IF – the next financial meltdown occurs. No one knows when that will be since there’s tremendous power in the control over a money system, but warning signs have been there for years."

"A privately controlled money system can nullify hard-won reforms in other areas such as the environment, medical care, or peace initiatives because such concentration of wealth and power will eventually overwhelm and be used against the people to unwind whatever other gains we’ve achieved."

Both of the above Stephen Zarlenga excerpts are from:

EPILOGUE

"Feedback from Prime Minister Kenny's Office":

"I wish to acknowledge receipt of your email of 18 June, 2011 which will be brought to the Taoiseach's attention as soon as possible."

The response immediately above, from Prime Minister Enda Kenny's Assistant Private Secretary David King, came in the form of an e-mail sent to me from the Taoiseach's Office (Prime Minister Enda Kenny TD) dated 21 June, 2011 (i.e. well over 11 months ago).

Additional information relating to the June 21st 2011 e-mail in question from David King, which is connected with the above Stephen Zarlenga information, and the large number of people informed about it, can be viewed at the following Internet location:
