Remember all the hospitals apparently bombed by Assad in Syria. If you were a keen observer you would have counted at least 100. I doubt there is that many hospitals in the whole country. Well it was all Western propaganda. Today a series of leaks shows how Western powers acted as the PR front for the terrorists and "rebels" in Syria. The West was actually backing ISIS. Yes, ISIS the head chopping terrorist group. One has to wonder about all the ISIS / Terrorist attacks in Europe, if the same powers have been backing them in Syria. Is their a link. That has to be. This report comes from zero hedge regarding the main leak of documents linking the Western governments running of the successful disinformation campaign. Ever wonder why when Russia entered Syria they managed to destroy over 1200 ISIS oil tanker trucks in a few nights and slash their fund raising in the process whilst up to down with all the satellites, drones, electronic surveillance and everything else, the US and NATO forces could not find them. And how the media used to talk of ISIS being unstoppable. They are unstoppable when you support them and do nothing to stop them. read full story / add a comment

This was originally published on Sept 5th and is republished in full here. Source link given below. So far it has been signed by 394 medical doctors, 1,340 medically trained health professionals.

We, Belgian doctors and health professionals, wish to express our serious concern about the evolution of the situation in the recent months surrounding the outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We call on politicians to be independently and critically informed in the decision-making process and in the compulsory implementation of corona-measures. We ask for an open debate, where all experts are represented without any form of censorship. After the initial panic surrounding covid-19, the objective facts now show a completely different picture – there is no medical justification for any emergency policy anymore.

The current crisis management has become totally disproportionate and causes more damage than it does any good.

We call for an end to all measures and ask for an immediate restoration of our normal democratic governance and legal structures and of all our civil liberties

It has been revealed that the UK's chief scientific advisor who also chairs the government’s expert advisory panel on vaccines has according to reports (in the Telegraph) has over 43,000 shares in GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) – a multinational pharmaceutical company. The shares are estimated to be worth £600,000

This is the same person who is pushing for the vaccine and currently promoting fear around the current rise in "cases" trying to imply there is a second wave when these are just detections and not cases of where people previously had Covid and other related diseases

The US drive to extradite and prosecute Julian Assange poses a grave threat to journalists everywhere, but the publisher’s opponents have placed politics over principle, and even their own interests, said whistleblower Ed Snowden.

Due to the success of the smear campaign against Assange over the years Snowden has to speak defensively of him as per quotes below

“I think a lot of it comes down to people forgetting what principles are and why they're important,” Snowden said in an interview with Joe Rogan on Tuesday. “You can hate Julian Assange, you can think he's a puppet of Russia, you can think he's the worst person on Earth – a reincarnation of Hitler or Stalin – and still realize that convicting him harms you.”

This report from back in March 2020 is about the war crimes committed by the Australian SAS operating inside Afghanistan. Apparently there are there to bring peace and democracy but instead happily terrorize the nation. It is no coincidence that we see draconian and heavy handed police tactics during the Covid crisis from this same Australian government since the current situation simply unmasks something in the power elite that Afghanis clearly have taken the brunt of for many years

The graphic footage, filmed by body cameras worn by the elite troops and broadcast on national television, must lead to the soldiers being tried for murder.

Australians always look forward to celebrating Anzac Day, but this year it will be different because a pall of shame has fallen over our armed forces thanks to a jaw-dropping TV expose aired this week that showed elite Aussie soldiers murdering Afghan civilians in cold blood when they were supposed to be protecting them from the Taliban.

Dr Martin Feeley, clinical director of the Dublin Midlands Hospital Group. Covid-19 is “much less severe” than the average annual flu and current “draconian” restrictions are no longer justified

For the second time in a week the Irish Times has reported on Covid-19 that did not slavishly follow the government / WHO / Big Pharma narrative and instead on something that makes common sense from a senior HSE doctor. If the Irish Times keep reporting on the actual truth like this, they are in real danger of being delisted from google searches. Nevertheless this little spark of light is to be applauded.

The piece concerns a statement made by Dr Martin Feeley, the clinical director of the Dublin Midlands Hospital Group, who said "Covid-19 is much less severe” than the average annual flu.

While this is obvious to anyone paying attention to the actual number of deaths it is an unheard of statement in the mainstream media. It is likely the government had an emergency cabinet meeting with the HSE on Zoom to discuss the threat of the actual truth getting out and the public discovering what liars they are and how they have been in the pocket of the corrupt part of the medical establishment, the corrupt WHO and the agenda of the big pharmaceutical companies that stand to make hundreds of billions of dollars/euro through mandatory vaccines for which they will be exempt from all liability

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.

As reported back in April, Dr Marcus De Brun a GP from Dublin, who resigned from the Irish Medical Council over the mismanagement of Covid-19, was interviewed by Broadsheet. Because of his views, he has been silenced by the mainstream. His crime is that he has dared to criticize the Covid narrative. The 2nd crime is that he has a backbone and principles unlike most of the medical profession. read full story / add a comment

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.
