offsite link Lockdown Effects May be Killing More People Than the Virus Fri Aug 19, 2022 09:21 | Toby Young
ONS data suggest that 1,000 more people than usual are dying each week ? and not from Covid. Is this due to delayed treatment for conditions such as cancer as a result of the lockdown? Or is it... something else?

Western foreign policy makes absolutely no sense ? whether from a moral or strategic perspective. This is illustrated by a recent video of Liz Truss, who refuses to criticise our "important partner" Saudi Arabia.

It’s called the Green Passport. We’re not told to wear it, but what they have done is they have, essentially, overnight created a second-class citizenry—a true medical apartheid that is disallowing healthy, law-abiding, tax-paying citizens from entering their place of culture if they do not participate in this experiment. It’s that simple We literally have been told that there are people who’ve been kicked out of their choirs, out of their pools, out of their gyms. I don’t know who’s going to hear the message we’re saying. I don’t know what is going to become of it. I know that there is no other option than to give every fiber of energy and strength into battling this, because there is no other option. read full story / add a comment

This is report carried by freepress.ie reveals that Irish Hospitals were never under strain during the previous year and use data from a freedom of information request. It shines a very bright light on the relentless propaganda from the government and their lackies in the mainstream media.

Freepress.ie can exclusively reveal that Irish hospitals were never under strain throughout 2020, based on newly released official health system hospital data arising from our freedom of information request.

Tonight people had gathered peacefully in Clapham, south London to pay their respects to Sarah Everard who was brutally murdered last week. Within a few days a London police officer was arrested on suspicion of the murder.

The people present tonight were there because of their shock and horror and were not necessarily there for any other reason. It was a basic human act of kindness and solidarity. But in these strange times of Covid which has been used to usher in the global police state, obedience is the new mantra and the new normal. read full story / add a comment

St Patricks day is the day to show your opposition to this lockdown madness. All around the country people want to mark it in some way.

In Dublin there were two events planned. One was to Herbert Park in Ballsbridge and a second rally to assemble outside the RTE studio which these days simply spews propaganda and lies about the covid situation and has been the center piece of the campaign to keep the lockdown and restriction going and at the same time press relentlessly for permanent police state measures in the form of Testing & Vaccine passports to go to the pub or a football match.

The event for Herbert Park is the location for Le Cheile Day For Mental Health - Families Supporting Families

It remains to be seen if the corporate overlords of our police state instruct their minions to ban this rally

Search engines have come to dominate our lives and Google which is by far the best known has by far the largest marketshare estimated to be anything from 70% to 90%. These search engines have become powerful tools for the corporations owning them as it gives them immense power to shape peoples lives since they control the algorithm controlling what you see when you search the news, check facts or try to search for information which they exclude from the search results because it does not suit their agenda. They also know incredible amounts about their users from their preferences, political leanings, lifestyles, ailments, age, location holiday preferences and practically every other aspects of them. It is time we took our privacy back and with the launch of a new decentralized and community based search engine called PreSearch.org there is now a chance that the tide is turning.

On Tuesday (March 9th) Senator Rónán Mullen read into the public record of the Seanad as part of the Order of Business revealations about the fraudulent antics of leading members of the so called Independent Scientific Advocacy Group (ISAG) who have spent inordinate amount of time on the national media promoting lockdowns.

Report published recently of the international correspondence and workings of the so-called Independent Scientific Advisory Group which has been pushing for a zero Covid approach. Four weeks ago, the head of the group wrote to its members asking them to "look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty" and to "go after people and not institutions" because "people hurt faster than institutions". read full story / add a comment

Despite the media trying to smear and criminalize in the public mind anyone who attends an anti-lockdown protest, this week many hundreds of brave citizens turned up to the Cork anti-lockdown protests. Many more were turned away by the Irish Stasi working hard to bring in the Irish part of the global police state which we see rapidly unfolding over the past year all around us. Many roads leading to Cork such as the M7, M8, N25 and others had Garda checkpoints denying the constiutional right of people to travel more than 5km. read full story / add a comment

Sat 27th Feb. Today's long planned anti-lockdown protest that was due to take place in Stephens Green was prevented from entering the park because it was closed by the government and all roads leading to it were sealed off by a massive police operation.

Despite the fact there were was an estimated 3,000 to 5,000 who were marching and the vast majority were regular people and were peaceful, the media insists it was a riot and was only attended by thugs. This is the image that they not only want to present but they do present. The only mainstream media images are of lines of cops with smoke from the one firecracker by the lunatic and some discarded litter on the ground.

This report of the protest critically looks at what happened and how the agenda of the government has been cynically served. It is so coincidental that the incident with the firecracker perfectly fitted the narrative they wanted to portray and portray it they did in every report and mention. read full story / add a comment

Christine McTiernan is both brave and a hero because she has had enough as her business has been forced to close because of the Covid Hoax being used to usher in a police state and she has been denied her right to earn a living and put food on the table. Today she stood up against what has become in this country and elsewhere our sinister police state in the making. Immediately the Guards came down on her and threatened her with arrest.

There’s a reason why the Biden regime is trying to attack Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and create an illusion of a disproportionate viral crisis in the state. With no declared emergency restrictions in place at the state level since last September, the fact that Florida is doing better than the national average completely exposes the lie of lockdown and masks having any effect whatsoever on the fixed natural progression of the virus. read full story / add a comment
Bury’s Bridge to Carrigtwohill Cycle Route
national / public consultation / irish social forum / press release Thursday February 11, 2021 17:19 by cyclist   image 1 image
Transport Minister Eamon Ryan has allocated €240m to walking and cycling projects, including to low-quality projects which are already designed, and new projects to be designed using old design standards.

This is in stark contrast to the UK where cycling route design guidance was updated before the extra funding was announced and before it was allocated. Funding was linked to higher-standards.

While the cycling infrastructure in the UK is far from perfect, the quality of projects in London and elsewhere has started to far surpass the quality of street changes built in Ireland. The higher standard infrastructure in the UK includes Dutch-style designs which the National Transport Authority has resisted implementing. read full story / add a comment

RiseUp Éireann, It’s time now to take action, peacefully for this social gathering.

RiseUp Éireann invites Everyone to come to this social gathering ...Uniting together, to create solutions to end Lockdown, & to come together peacefully, to celebrate life, claim our Freedom, with artistic expression through Culture & CommUnity.

Please share this event far & wide, invite everyone, help spread the message of Truth...

RiseUp Éireann was created as a response to create Solutions, to navigate the current draconian restrictions, that are being experienced on a worldwide scale.

The Irish Government has brought legislation in that goes against a democratic society, against Irelands constitution and more importantly, for RiseUp Eireann against inalienable human rights. Of which no Government has the right to remove. It’s crimes against humanity, & Tyranny.

We intend to use peaceful methods to express our voices for the type of society we wish to live in.

We do not promote violence and are non political & non religious. Spirituality & connection to God is welcome.

All welcome to Unite with RiseUp Éireann, & our extensive network.

Everyone welcome to be themselves, & to stand in their own beliefs, based on Truth, Integrity, Authenticity & Love.
RiseUp Éireann acknowledges that the world Governments are using psychological and germ warfare, with fear being their main weapon of choice.
We choose Love.

Due to the reluctance and active censorship of alternative narratives to the one they are expounding within their own literature and that of RTE the Governments media propaganda machine, we will utilise whatever means are available to get our message out. RiseUp will peacefully demonstrate through the arts. read full story / add a comment

The general problem of culture today is its ability to facilitate and support negative aspects of society through encouraging escapism, diversion and ignorance regarding many important issues of contemporary life, such as economic crises, repressive legislation, poverty, and climate chaos. Or worse still, the use of culture to promote elite views of society regarding power and money, as well as imperialist agendas through negative depictions of a targeted ethnic group or country. read full story / add a comment

In what is becoming almost a daily report of massive nursing home deaths following injections of experimental mRNA COVID shots, a nursing home in the U.K. is reporting over one third of their residents have died after receiving the mRNA experimental COVID injections.

We are now seeing a very predictable pattern as we are reporting all over the world where the elderly are dying at a very alarming rate following mass vaccinations of the experimental mRNA injections.

And in all of these cases, the local media is quoting local officials as saying that the “vaccines” have nothing to do with the deaths. They are also stating that deaths following the experimental mRNA injections are “expected.” read full story / add a comment
