One in five jobs in the department of the MHRA that authorises vaccines for public use are currently vacant. Should we be worried? Yes, says a safety expert. If vacancies climb above 15%, safety is compromised.

An Itialian woman of 55 years of age who was pro-vaccine and delighted to receive it so much so that she announced it on her facebook page. The woman, a music teacher soon fell ill in the days that followed and later scans of her brain showed blood clots.

She fell into a coma on 28 March and died on 30 March - 19 days after having the experimental vaccine. Her family have now announced to the media that they are taking legal action. They may not been aware but that in every single country, governments have given full indemnity to vaccine manufacturers and it means anyone taking a case must take their case against the government. They will be unlikely to get a fair hearing since these same governments are forcing these vaccine upon their populations. read full story / add a comment

This report describes how the idea of a German Exit or Dexit from the EU is gaining political traction in Germany because of widespread eurosceptism there. Many Germans feel they are no longer benefiting and it is instead causing them problems. The mainstream media as usual has tried to label it a far-right thing as they do with everywhere with anyone who disagrees with the mainstream narrative no matter what it is. But while it might have started on the right, the mood has spread to much broader sections of the populace so much so that the AfD party are opening calling for Dexit

One feature of the Covid Scamdemic is that the maddest and most repressive measures are the ones that get implemented in the end. Just as you thought it couldn't get worse we have this report carried by gript.ie which appears to be the only news outlet left that does not parrot government propaganda, lies and fear. Many of course but they are sheep, probably think this is a great idea. BTW, this is exactly what the so called conspiracy theorists were predicting from the get-go.

A senior Australian government minister did not rule out Australian citizens being forced to wear electronic ankle bracelets to ensure they adhere to home quarantine – even if they are fully vaccinated.

There is no doubt about it that religion and spirituality are under attack and the pressure has been massively increased on the back of the Covid Scamdemic.

The level of suppression and repression now in force against the church has not been seen here for centuries. The irony is that the church hierarchy are largely going along with it. The attack on spirituality is a bit harder to discern but it is there and part of the wider trend. Overall what appears to be going on is the corporate takeover of society and that is the new religion and it is intolerant of any other belief systems. This is a characteristic of all totalitarian systems. They want you to transfer any beliefs you have to them. During the worst periods of the USSR we saw churches burned or closed down and all religious practice suppressed. Similar things happened during the Chinese cultural revolution. What it represents is a demand to turn towards the reigning power and an insistence that this is the only belief system. What the socialist revolution was promising was salvation through socialist organisation of society and by directing the productive forces to the benefit of all peoples, in effect creating heaven on Earth. It didn't quite turn out that way for various reasons. Now the corporate regime is trying the same without the promises.

Iconic author Frederick Forsyth has accused the UK government of waging a “campaign of mass fear” against the British public by using psychological methods to ensure compliance with lockdown that resemble those used against East Berliners in the 1960’s. Forsyth was responding to an article published in the Telegraph which exposed the “covert tactics” being used by the British government to frighten the public into complying with COVID regulations. read full story / add a comment

A media news item reads: “EU pledges support for Ukraine amid Russian military buildup along borders.”
Irish soldiers could be used as sandbags for on-coming Soviet air-to-ground missiles. A real possibility in the future, if Ireland does not pull back from the growing EU militarisation program.
