gript.ie have just broken this very important story documenting the dramatic destruction of our civil liberties and trashing of our constitutional rights. The government unchecked in steadily moving into very dangerous territory where they are now granting themselves the power to lock up anyone on a whim. Kudos to gript.ie for covering this important development.

A new bill has been proposed which would give the State the right to detain people suspected of having the potential to spread Covid, and would allow Health Minister Stephen Donnelly to designate locations as “areas of infection.”

Last Sunday the government officially launched a two tiered society of apartheid in Austria in a throwback to the 1930s when the Nazi's took over by enforcing a lockdown for just the un-vaccinated who were to be confined to their homes and only allowed out to shop for feed or exercise.

In a surprise move today, the police union have announced they are not going along with this. The big question is how many?

Austrian Army and Police have stated they will NOT enforce the UNWAXXED Lockdown on the grounds it goes against...👇

"freedom and human dignity".

They will join a monster November 20 Rally, in Vienna.

Serious cracks are beginning to appear... Long Live Freedom 👊

Noam Chomsky the long time hero of the Left, defender of democracy, campaigner for human rights has finally outed himself as part of the controlled opposition. Chomsky has been around for years and wrote the famous Manufacturing Consent about how the media controls the public narrative. Yet as the decades past, it became apparent some subjects were taboo and in particular any sort of fishy incident like 9/11 he would row in with the narrative. This was a way of guiding his followers of which there are many along certain carefully well defined paths and off other ones.

In a recent article on RT.com they report in an article on how Noam Chomsky has come out in support of the two tier society of the jabbed and unjabbed.

Kieran Morrissey an Irish engineer who has worked for over 22 years in a major Irish teaching hospital has released a very important video and written the article reproduced here. In summary he says the widespread adverse effects now being seen caused by the Covid Jabs which involves mainly blood clots and associated problems like strokes and heart attacks and heart failure have symptoms very similar to what the Marburg virus can cause. Already forces are at work in the media to claim a Marburg pandemic is on the way. By sheer chance they have a vaccine even more deadly. The vaccine injuries which are growing massively by the week and will really take off when people take the boosters will be used to create the new scare and force a new round of vaccinations for Marburg which will cause even more death. It is important for people to break the cycle of taking deadly vaccines and understand what is planned. ... read full story / add a comment
