If it has not been clear to now that big Pharma is favoured by government, it should be now. This report illustrates the extent to which the US government is going to force vaccines on the population. As part of this deal the pharma companies will NOT be liable for any damages.

President Trump announced today (May 14, 2020) that he is mobilizing the military to distribute over 300 million doses of a coronavirus vaccine by the end of the year. Since the current population of the United States is around 330 million people, it would appear that the goal is to inject pretty much the entire population with this vaccine. read full story / add a comment

EU Biomass Case Denied Access to The Courts
Applicants considering appeal to end burning forest wood as renewable and carbon neutral

In March 2019 applicants from six countries including the USA brought a claim stating that the EU’s 2018 Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) will devastate forests and increase greenhouse gas emissions by promoting burning forest wood as renewable and carbon neutral.

On 11 May 2020 the EU Court published an order that the applicants who have brought this case, including individuals and groups from Estonia, France, Ireland, Romania and Slovakia, do not have legal standing and that it will not therefore make a decision on whether or not the biomass provisions of RED II should be annulled. read full story / add a comment

The weekend just gone by in the UK was a bank holiday weekend and the weather was really good. Millions of UK citizens fed up with the lunatic lockdown defied the authorities and were out in parks, beaches and on the streets in their droves. There were so many the police gave up trying to impose it. Even some pubs here and there opened up and people sat out enjoying the sun and having a pint. All the pubs should open rather than commit economic suicide and they should ask their customers to defend them. Up to that point the UK government message was Stay At Home. Today when many people returned to work it is reckoned the numbers up back to the near 70% to 80% of normal. Some of the London tubes were packed and nobody dropped dead as a result. This morning media figures including many celebrity figures were stunned and wondered what was going on while many who had stuck rigidly to the rules realized they have been fooled and lied to in the past 6 to 8 weeks. read full story / add a comment

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), on Monday (May 4, 2020), alleged that it has intercepted a human intelligence report that the Nigeria House of Representatives leadership was poised to forcefully pass the compulsory vaccine bill without subjecting it to the traditions of legislative proceedings.

In a statement issued and signed by the spokesperson of the opposition political parties, Barrister Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere and sent to DAILY POST in Abuja on Monday, the body urged lawmakers in the lower chamber to rise against impunity. read full story / add a comment

Everyone is using Zoom these days from work conference calls to family chats and quizzes. It's the new shiny star of the Corona-virus era. It is a godsend to save us. Well it turns out it isn't. It's encryption is not true encryption and it just uses TLS which allows the Zoom corporation to intercept and decrypt video chats and other data. TLS is also used by WhatsApp which is owned by Microsoft, so that allows Microsoft to easily mine all the messages from the 1.5 billion or so users.

This report on Zoom comes from the UK Tech Industry well known website TheReigster. Even though the report is from early April it is unlikely most people have been made aware of the full extent of the scandal.

Since then Zoom have no doubt fixed some of the glaring security holes but it is highly likely they not want to stop getting the data they had access to, so it would be reasonable to assume they are still getting it by backdoor means and not transmitting it encrypted so that it will be far harder to uncover read full story / add a comment

This page will contain updates and tips on how to stay health and any known measures to boost the immune system and help prevent getting ill from Covid if you are in he vulnerable group. The key advice though is to boost your immune system by taking Vitamin C and Zinc. Vitamin D which can be generated by your body's skin in sunshine is also very good and is well known to protect. Getting outdoors into fresh air and walking, hiking or swimming are all also excellent ways to improve your immunity. Eating good nutritious food rather than junk food is another important component of boosting your immune system. read full story / add a comment

This page holds videos of interest to help decipher what is going on politically and globally with the Covid crisis.

As people know the world economy has been more or less put in lockdown and if you wanted to crash it then this is how you would do it. Also anyone paying attention to the numbers will realize the government are lying outright and talking up the numbers and grossly exaggerating how deadly it is. It is so far no worse than the flu which of course kills many each year

The bio-weapon angle has come up multiple times and has gone as high as a spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry saying that the virus was genetically created and was a bio-weapon of some kind. People at that level of officialdom don't say things like that without backing from people higher up the chain of command.

For weeks, talking heads have been promoting the liability-free vaccine(s) that will save the world—so Bill Gates and Tony Fauci proclaim—from what Gates has now dubbed “Pandemic I.” As Microsoft News peddles self-congratulatory stories about the Gates Foundation’s reorientation of its priorities to devote “‘total attention’ to the pandemic,” Fauci—making the rounds of talk shows—pledges that a vaccine will make its debut in January 2021. Not to be outdone, the White House has now unveiled “Operation Warp Speed”—a joint pharmaceutical-government-military effort aimed at “substantially shrinking the development time for a vaccine”—and President Trump promises one by the end of the year. read full story / add a comment

As another country ratifies the CETA trade agreement, the pressure will come on Ireland to do the same. The question that arises is where will the Greens stand on it as they ready themselves to get into power. Perhaps they will sell themselves out even before they get there.

The countries that have ratified CETA are Austria, Croatia, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and now Luxembourg.

Throughout Europe some sanity is beginning to prevail once again although all the governments everywhere are keen to continue the myth that this virus is more dangerous than the actual numbers suggest. They are therefore imposing ridiculous and costly measures on businesses and social life. Ireland as usual tries to be "the best in the class" or in reality most sheepish and is imposing the greatest burden by being the slowest.

But lets cut to the chase. Ireland has a big pharmaceutical businesses here that want to cash in bigtime and push the vaccines as some kind of magic solution. To impress them, the government has played along with the farce and deliberately talked up the number of deaths and at the same time down the number of cases. This way the death per infection appears far higher and that way it scares the living daylights out of more people. This makes them more likely to line up for the vaccine.

And all the while In Sweden, people are relaxing on cafe terraces. read full story / add a comment

What has happened here is criminal and requires investigation although this is unlikely to be done in any honest way given the blatant lies and propaganda around this Covid crisis.

Sally was moved to the #COVIDー19 ward even though she tested NEGATIVE twice. 1/14

Pandemic 2020 is to bring the world multiple steps closer to one-world dystopia. This could very well be the Year Zero of Dystopian World Order. However, that final stage before one-world government can be fully cemented into earth history without remnance of public resistance, must still be an even graver cosmological threat of existential proportions, an alien invasion... but we shall see how far this microbial enemy can take us on the Hard Road to a New Dystopian World Order.

That alien threat isn't so far fetched as may first appear to the innocent of knowledge: The Pentagon has released three unclassified videos taken by Navy pilots showing unidentified flying objects, reports world's news media in unison on April 27, 2020, just in time to add to mankind's existential worries. read full story / add a comment
