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.

This report from rt.com on the CitizenLab report confirms what many suspected...

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.

FDA_admits_pcr_test_developed_with_no_virius_isolate.jpg

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

Ben Scanlon from the Gript.ie has interviewed Dr. Martin Feeley on the experimental vaccines in particular in relation to children.

In it he outlines how normal vaccines take at least 10 years to develop to ensure they are safe but that the current vaccines have been rushed out in 6 to 9 months and he gives a history of vaccines that have been rushed into use and it is not good.

This report is from Health Impact News and concerns the deeply worrying descent in tyranny that has taken place in Australia.

Earlier this month we reported how quickly Australia had descended into tyranny, basically becoming a medical police state with martial law. Even China has criticized their authoritarian measures, and we showed video footage of police arresting the elderly and seniors in parks for simply not wearing masks.

In this article by Pepe Escobar who is reporting on the situation in Afghanistan where province after province has rapidly fallen to the Taliban, he compares the current situation to the chaotic evacuation from Saigon in Vietnam after the USA had killed at least 2 million there in a brutal war that lasted more than a decade. In the case of Afghanistan the USA and NATO have achieved zero and spent over 2 trillion dollars but in the process have further destroyed the country and killed untold hundreds of thousands of Afghans.

Now as told by Escobar the Taliban are avenging America's invasion way back in 2001 and as Kandahar the second city of Afghanistan has already fallen, the only obstacle that remains is Kabul itself and as one commentator suspects they may be hoping to take that on Sept 11th which would be a fitting slap in the face to the Empire. That though remains to be seen whether it will occur on that date but it will happen one way or another. read full story / add a comment

There aren't too many victories but it is important to keep chipping away and this news report from rt.com is a small victory. No doubt though the Spanish government won't give up and try some other tact. This follows another victory last month where Spain's top court ruled pandemic lockdown was unconstitutional. See here

A controversial proposal that sought to make Covid-19 passports mandatory to visit all nightlife venues, floated by the government of Andalusia, has been shot down by the top court in Spain’s southern coastal region.

The High Court of Justice of Andalusia (TSJA) ruled on Friday against the initiative announced by the regional government earlier this week. Making health passports mandatory to visit indoor nightlife venues was deemed to be discriminatory and in violation of citizens’ privacy rights.

There are many videos covering the current situation but every now and again an important one comes along that blows away how the narrative is created and the Covid fraud is carried out. In this case it is about the PCR tests which are the backbone of the whole thing since this is the basis for the bogus case numbers

Thankfully the French are not taking these authoritarian police state Covid Passports lying down and there are over 175 protests going on in France. In the latest a hospital is going on strike over it as reported in rt.com. Now if something similar could happen here. Probably not as the Left have totally bought into the entire Covid fraud and once again chosen the Stalinist option of crushing individual freedom and liberty. They are now firmly on the wrong side of history.

The staff of the hospital in Montelimar, in the French department of Drome, have gone on indefinite strike to protest the new rules demanding they take a vaccine against Covid-19 by mid-September or face losing their jobs.

The strike against “forced vaccination” was announced on Thursday by the CGT-GHPP trade union, and affects some 200 doctors and 1,500 nurses in the southeastern French city.

Hundreds of them gathered outside the hospital on Friday, denouncing lockdowns and vaccine mandates and chanting “liberté!” (freedom).

“The people have woken up – at last!” declared local Gilet Jaune rebel Michelle as she watched the vast crowds assembling on the main square of Montpellier in southern France.

She has been involved with the Yellow Vest movement since the very start of the popular revolt against the Macron regime in November 2018.

Two years ago, in April 2019, another Gilet Jaune told me on the same spot, the Place de la Comédie, that France was witnessing “a turning point in history”.

Despite the vast levels of militarised repression used against the Yellow Vests, not to speak of the relentless propaganda in the mass media, the movement never abandoned the struggle.

This article in the Off-Guardian is important as it describes how regardless of government mandates on Vaccine Passports, Goolgle has all the software infrastructure in place. So even though there are quite a number of US states and countries trying to back away from them, Google with their global dominance plan to make it a fact on the ground. As with al fascist system which is one where state power and corporate power work closely together or merge, the EU has played fast and loose and has been very much part of the rollout. The item starts.

On June 30th, 2021, the Google Developers blog announced the launch of vaccine passports in Android through its Passes API.

As more and more doctors are speaking out about their findings on effects of the experimental gene therapy vaccines and vaccine samples are being analysed for their contents the situation is become very serious and disturbing. The evidence is stacking up of genocide level of attack on populations around the world through the relentless lies and propaganda to coerce people into taking the experimental gene therapy, referred to as the vaccine.

If things are as bad as findings are showing and it is looking this way, then the vast majority of those who have already taken the jab the outlook is very very grim and shocking and they are truly f**ked. The more shots you take the worse it will be.

At this stage depending on the particular country anything from 40% to 80% of the population have taken the jab. More serious though is that in the older age group of experience and knowledgeable people this figure is much higher and so the younger people will be left without the wisdom of the older members of society, thereby making them far more suscseptible to manipulation and control

And while Epstein is the name most people are familiar with, there are many many more Epstein type characters that have been doing the same work.

This op-ed written by journalist Neil Clark for the website Russia Today and is reproduced here as many readers here are from the UK and it raises very important issues

If Covid-19 ‘Freedom Day’ on June 21 is postponed, as seems likely, and the public complies with it, Britain will never return to normal. If curbs can’t be lifted when deaths ‘with’ the virus are near zero, when will they ever be?

Don’t say you weren’t warned. Having predicted correctly, before Christmas, the very day (January 4) when Boris Johnson would announce the next lockdown, on January 1, 2021, I tweeted: ‘My inside source says that there will be no significant easing of restrictions until July at the earliest. Govt mentioning Easter as they need to take backbenchers with them & want public compliance.’

In this disturbing report from Summit News about how the Danish government has blocked an entire site to the whole country because it carries videos that challenge the Covid and vaccine narrative, we have clearly entered a new stage in the ongoing psychological war against humans by the elite. How long before the only sites remaining on the Internet are those cheering for the mainstream narrative.

Authorities in Denmark have shut down much of the country’s access to video platform Bitchute in the name of preventing the spread of “dangerous information” about COVID.

In a shock move that smells of some other agenda, one of the leading newspapers Haaretz has published the pictures of 67 of the Palestinian children murdered by the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF). While this is a very welcome exposure of what has been going on, it does beg the question of why now. For the Zionist state has been killing Palestinians for years and has created the largest open air prison on the planet.

That other agenda could be related to the power struggle going on with Netanyahu and may be away to apply pressure to have him removed. The only thing is that neither he nor any other potential leader is likely to bring peace. read full story / add a comment

This article was written for an USA audience but it could have easily been written for an Irish or UK audience as students in both countries are coming under similar absurd pressure for the gangsters of Big Pharma. It's even worse because for some reason the Left has abandoned the class war completely and is now 100% behind promoting these vaccines and are now Big Pharma's greatest asset. The world has truly been turned upside down

The American university system has scammed students long enough, now forcing us to be experiments for emergency-use vaccines that healthy students don’t need, but Big Pharma desperately wants.
