In this episode we are explore how a conscientious doctor turned from blindly believing in vaccines to looking at the actual science, challenging her beliefs and coming out as a strong science-based, pro choice advocate for medical freedom.

If you are wondering why doctors are not speaking up in the current situation, Dr. Jayne Donegan’s story might shed some light on the underlying reasons. read full story / add a comment

Craig Murray, a former ambassador to Uzbekistan, the father of a newborn child, a man in very poor health and one who has no prior convictions, will have to hand himself over to the Scottish police on Sunday morning. He becomes the first person ever to be imprisoned on the obscure and vaguely defined charge of “jigsaw identification”.

Murray is also the first person to be jailed in Britain for contempt of court in half a century – a period when such different legal and moral values prevailed that the British establishment had only just ended the prosecution of “homosexuals” and the jailing of women for having abortions.

The media have tried to bury the reality for nearly a year and a half now – but the truth will out. You cannot fool all of the people all of the time.

Here we lay the reality bare with a panel of experts – enjoy and share! (contents index to follow). Due to danger of further censorship of scientific reality, this is currently on Bitchute and Odysee below.

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

Saturday July 24th was WorldWide Demonstration Day for Freedom and No to Vaccine Passports and hundreds of cities world wide witnessed large demonstrations against this tyranny imposed under the pretext of the Covid Plandemic. In Ireland at least 10,000 in not more turned out on the streets of Dublin and in Cork thousands turned out as well.

Naturally the mainstream lying media reported far smaller numbers but the pictures and videos both here and on numerous Telegram channels clearly show the turnout was as stated above. Given few if any pictures will be shown in the MSN, a small but representative selection are shown here read full story / add a comment

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.
