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.

This article is by a journalist who has decided to come clean about the sort of pressures put on him on how to report on the Covid scare. The pro-lockdown cheerleaders in the mainstream media have been following No.10’s orders and wrongly branding all lockdown sceptics as nutty conspiracy theorists – but the tide is turning. More and more people are coming round to realise lockdown has been a major mistake. Yet newspapers and TV, here in the UK at least, are still loyally hounding down dissenters and tarring each one as some sort of lunatic who needs, well, locking up. read full story / add a comment

The country must be in a state of shock now that some sanity in the Covid-19 situation has broken out. The Irish Times of all places has actually published an article with this headline. It is unheard of:

Covid-19: Doctors call for ‘utterly meaningless’ daily figures to be dropped

We have known for some time that many doctors know the whole thing on reporting daily cases (as well as previously locking up the healthy and forcing them to wear masks), for a diseases that about 95% of the time only kills those who are very ill already, is a total farce. However mainly due to watching their backs, careers, being social ostracised or downright cowardice, have been afraid to speak out. Now, at long last the first tentative steps have been taken. Perhaps because they realize the entire medical establishment is rapidly losing all credibility because it has gone along with this farce and most people are obeying the rules just because everyone else does. And this brings us to this historic announcement today:

A number of doctors have called for an end to the daily Covid-19 figures, describing them as a “self-perpetuating cycle of misery”. ..“causing huge anxiety” and is “utterly meaningless”.

This report and analysis on the Berlin anti-restrictions protest last Sat 29th Aug explains how the entire mainstream media set out to discredit the protests and imply they were all Nazis and how a staged event on the steps of the Reichstag was carried out to feed this narrative. It exposes the lies and manipulations of the German government and press and the sheer dishonesty that has been evidence by all governments throughout the Covid plandemic.

Join us on Sat 3rd Oct at the rally at the Customs House, Dublin to protest against Oppressive Government Restrictions and Mandates and reject the new abnormal. Governments everywhere have made a grab for total power and are imposing Orwellian conditions over us since this Covid thing started last March. Governments are not in the habit of giving up power and must be challenged. Most people are just going along with the rules thinking that somehow it is all going to be lifted. It is not. It will only be lifted if the public show they don't accept them. It is time to stop sitting on the fence and getting up to make a difference. read full story / add a comment

Governments everywhere have turned into police states, and politicians and especially the people behind the scenes pulling the strings, are not going to loosen up as demonstrated in this latest news from Aussie reported widely but taken from rt.com in this case..

‘Full-blown fascism’: PREGNANT Aussie woman handcuffed & charged with inciting anti-lockdown event on Facebook

Australian law enforcers have arrested an expectant mother for allegedly planning a protest against the Covid-19 lockdown in the state of Victoria, drawing ire and accusations of thought policing online.

This opinion piece is republished here by Gary D. Barnett from Lew Rockwell and in a broad way outlines what is in store in the months ahead and while he is mainly referring to the US, really it is true for all the countries. We have to consider that this Covid pandemic fraud (yes the virus exists and people have died but no more than from a typical flu year) was carried out as part of a larger plan.

Because Covid lockdowns and restrictions are global and the global economy itself was intentionally wrecked, along with getting billions of people to accept basically house arrest and unheard of job destruction, one therefore has to accept the global character of the fraud and the type of power brokers behind the scenes who have the means, power and influence to carry out the widespread changes we have seen. And if anyone thinks this is just a virus scare and it will soon go away, they will be in for a rude awakening but by the time the changes will have been made and it will be too late. If you value your life and that of your children, you better wake up out of the denial because deep down you know it's true anyhow, because this is the moment in time when people need to get a backbone for once in their life.

The political system both in power and in opposition in almost every country is completely bought into the hoax and offers zero questioning or push back on the new abnormal. None of them will accept what is staring us all in the face and that is a global totalitarian technological police state and there is very likely an agenda to reduce the population massively so as to preserve remaining resources.That part may take 10 years to ramp down in a controlled way through induced sickness and sterlization via "faulty" vaccines

Well over 10,000 people have attend a rally in Trafalgar Square, London around midday today (Sat 29th Aug) to ‘Unite for Freedom’ and ‘Take off the mask!’ and to demand a ‘back to normal now’

As of 9pm the BBC still had not reported on it. The march began in Trafalgar Square and marched to the Houses of Parliament to show opposition to the ongoing shutdowns and unnecessary restrictions

There were also large protests going on at the same time in Berlin where over 18,000 attended but it is very difficult to find anything other than derisory coverage from the mainstream media.

Breaking News. Not reported by mainstream media or RTE. The Berlin rally against Covid-19 restrictions on Aug 1st had 1.3 million people turn up !!!! -How come we never heard about this? At the rally for 29th Aug, there are 2 million expected
This is a report back from Health Freedom Ireland (HFI) on the protest organised by HFI in conjunction with the Yellow Vests at the Customs House Dublin on Aug 22nd. Given Covid is about the only thing in the news these days and happens to be the single most important issue of our time because of the way civil liberties have been taken away from the bulk of humanity, it is therefore prudent we give it the proper coverage and not the biased negative spin from the mainstream media.

Large numbers (estimated at around 6k) turned up for the peaceful protest against oppressive government restrictions and mandates over COVID-19 on Saturday, August 22nd at Customs House, Dublin.

The non-political event was organised by Health Freedom Ireland and Yellow Vest Ireland to voice concerns regarding government mandates, demanding transparency, proportionality of decisions and accountability by government officials and advisors. read full story / add a comment

Tracey O’ Mahony is an Irish Barrister-at-Law is like many is concerned about the serious erosion of our fundamental freedoms in the last six months.

At the start of this Covid crisis, many thought it was just a virus and if they followed government we would soon get back to normal life. Clearly that is not the case. Instead the "experts" tell us this will continue indefinitely into the future, we have surrendered our rights to experts, bureaucrats and polticans and the global economy is being destroyed. Not only that all forms of social interaction -the very essence of being human - have been severely and continue to be curtailed and now we are told we will have to be tracked, monitored, forcefully tested, DNA sampled and vaccinated.

The penny is beginning to drop that the powers that be don't plan on allowing society to go back to the old ways. They took about the new normal and frankly it looks pretty ugly.

So Tracey O'Mahony is someone who is finally taking a stand and doing something about it. She has started a GoFund-Me page to finance the campaign. Already the woke crowd have attacked her in an effort to discredit her. But there has been no criticism of any sort from these types and they act like pure sheep which is a very dangerous thing to happen because powerful people always take advantage of sheep and often slaughter when they are finished with them.

The bombshell new film, “Plandemic II: inDOCTORnation” was released yesterday, and this film unleashes bombshell after bombshell about Dr. Fauci, the CDC, the WHO, the corrupt vaccine industry, the NIH under Obama, and the whole pandemic scam that was deliberately engineered using a real virus to enslave humanity and earn billions in profits for Big Pharma.

Amazingly, the entire film has been released for free by its creator Mikki Willis, who you can find at PlandemicSeries.com (which appears to be under attack and not functioning at press time). read full story / add a comment

Dov Fox, a Soros fellow who currently works as director of the Center for Health Law Policy and Bioethics at the SanDiego.edu, has come out to claim that people who refuse vaccination for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) could lose their jobs or even be sent to jail.

According to Fox, who is said to be a bioethics “expert,” it is completely legal and constitutional for state governments to fine, imprison, or deny employment to people who say no to the jabs, no matter the reason. read full story / add a comment

Many people may already be aware of Jon Rappoport who writes at extensively at https://NoMoreFakeNews.com/ and who has from the very get go has asked fundamental questions about the Covid-19 crisis and provided very insightful analysis.

He has in conjunction with Catherine Austin Fitts of the Solari Report created a six part series of podcasts covering the how, why and objectives of the Covid-19 crisis. Catherine Austin Fitts is a leading financial expert and during the Bush Snr administration was She was Assistant Secretary of Housing — Federal Housing Commissioner at the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development

The second set of podcasts are interviews of various people, one an Prof of pathology of 20 years, Dr John Lee who talks alot of sense and calls out the British government on their approach to Covid. Then there is a really interesting interview of another doctor,

Legal Aid Board refusal to fund environmental NGO faces High Court challenge
Irish legal costs ‘prohibitively expensive’

The High Court will tomorrow [June 30] hear a two-day challenge to the Legal Aid Board’s refusal to provide legal aid to the environmental charity Friends of the Irish Environment [FIE].

The NGO sought the funding in April of 2018 to support its Judicial Review of the National Development Plan and the National Planning Framework. This case alleges that the Government of Ireland erred in law in failing to adequately fulfil its obligations under the Strategic Environmental Assessment and the Habitats Directive when approving the plans. read full story / add a comment
