On Dec 13th 2022, Andrew Bridgen UK MP finally had enough and decided he could no longer stay silent and gave a speech in the British Parliament. Since that day for the crime of breaking the narrative the establishment has carried out a witch hunt to vilify him and to throw destroy his career and slandering and spreading lies and mistruths about him since.

The whole point of the witch hunt is to send a warning to anyone else to not even think about breaking ranks because this big huge open secret about the dangers and terrible harm caused by the Covid vaccine must not be spoken.

There was widespread coverage that he had said something upsetting to the system but for those searching it would be hard to find out what it was he said so to redress the balance we carry the text of his speech and the video and audio as well as a link to an interview he did sometime later where he gave some background to the whole affair. read full story / add a comment

Galway County Council have proposed by laws that are truly Orwellian and all about control. One has to ask if this is a trial balloon for this were to succeed other councils were surely try it and before we know it hiking would be banned as well and basically all access to the outdoors. Remember that this was effectively done during Covid lockdowns so government know they can do it

This story has got fairly wide traction and rightly so. Here is a report from AFLOAT magazine


West coast windsurfers, sailors and other water users have expressed alarm over a proposal to ban all leisure activities other than swimming on Galway county beaches.

Under the draft legislation, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, stand-up paddling and horse-riding would be banned at 24 beaches extending from the Aran islands to Connemara to Portumna with a risk of fines of up to €1900.

Tesco is pushing card to usher in the cashless technocratic society and they are a key pillar of that effort. Once the cashless society is here then the corporate and banking elite will have full control over everything you do. Time to reject this future. In recent days Tesco has ramped up its tactic so much so that the Irish Council for Civil Liberties has begun to take notice and have written a letter to Tesco CEO.

We need to build independent NEW MEDIA, so that we can decide the issues to debate and offer analysys based on our own needs.

Already THE PEOPLE'S PAPER reaches out, but we need other media types and more to get involved.

If we allow the monopoly controlled media and social media to set the agenda, and censor debate, then we will remain enslaved.

Europe is committing economic suicide all because they are doing the bidding of US Neocons by imposing ridiculous sanctions against Russia which are doing far more damage to Europe and very little to Russia. They are equivalent to threatening to shoot yourself in both feet and the head and then going ahead and doing it. It is a completely idiotic and absurd situation that Europe has arrived in. We are already seeing the initial consequences in the form of fuel price rises and inflation.

The sanctions have actually done three things. They have strengthened Russia's finances and independence, they have accelerated the destruction of the dollar and all fiat currencies connected to it and they are dealing an economc death blow to Europe's economy. By refusing Russian gas it has led to soaring prices and there is no viable alternative to replace the huge quantities of it. Gas is not just used for heating but also for generating base load electrical power. And Russian oil is used to supply a large chunk of the diesel fuel used in Europe and literally everything we buy and do, needs diesel. Diesel is the life blood of the real physical world. Any disruption there and we will all feel it very directly very quickly.

The Irish government are fully aware of the potentially dire consequences of these reckless decisions because they have made it known that they have emergency plans for fuel rationing. Unfortunately it seems the public don't fully realize the scale of the pending crisis and that it is all caused by war-mongering and the belligerent actions of US & NATO cheered on by our own clueless politicians. It is quite clear that every government and institution is captured by sinister elements and those in key positions of power and influence have either been bought off or blackmailed. This was all very evident during Covid, when we saw how governments moved in lockstep to a single script, orchestrated by the totalitarian forces in the background. The Epstein revelations gave the public an insight into the extent and depth of blackmail and how it reached the highest echelons of society.

Ennis Data Centre’s 66 gas generators ‘threat to Local Health’ – expert

Ennis Data Centre will add ‘nearly 1%’ to Ireland’s nitrous oxide emissions

A gas plant consisting of 66 generators required under the planning permission for the Ennis data centre is a ‘threat to local health’, the public will be told at a forthcoming Press Conference.

Organised by members of the local community as well as an alliance of local and national environmental groups, Professor David Carpenter of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany will outline the effects of the 66 diesel generators that are required for the data centre backup power. According to the environmental impact report (EPIR) submitted by the applicant during the planning process, nearly 1% of Ireland’s total nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions are predicted to come from this development. read full story / add a comment

Clare County Council Decision to Approve 66 Diesel Generators for Data Centre 'Threatens Ennis Residents Health'

Ennis Data Centre and Gas Plant ‘totally unsustainable’

‘The plans to build one of the largest data centres in the country here in Ennis brings with it an additional threat to the health of people here as the plans include a gas burning plant that will only make the air quality here worse than it already is, leading to asthma and other respiratory problems.’

Despite the concerns of local residents, multiple environmental groups, as well as Eirgrid , Clare county council has made the abhorrent decision to give planning permission to an unknown company (Art Data Centres Ltd.) to construct a data centre on the Tulla Rd, Ennis which will consume as much electricity as 200,000 homes and emit 657,000 tonnes of CO2 annually.

He is charged with organising 2 marches against the lockdown last in June & July 2021. These summons were delivered to him while under arrest & locked up last month, for objecting to the NATO warships in Cork.

This amounts to POLITICAL POLICING.

He broke no laws, he was peaceful & respectful at all times.

Basic Human & Civil Rights are not respected in Ireland, not when the state is the abuser!

There are widespread reports from people saying how their family doctor or GP are using bullying tactics to force people into taking the Jab. Here's one sample account

Remember older people should not go to a GP on there own anymore they are bullies pushing vax. I went to the GP with my mother who is 84 hasn't been at a doctor for 2 years but she got a letter from GP saying she had to have a review or else she wouldn't get anymore perscriptions. When we went in GP said I see you didn't get the Covid vax to my mother she said she didn't he asked why not my mother said my best friend died after the vax. So then he asked her about the flu vax why she didn't get it with 2 years I spoke up she didn't because she used to get a very bad flu after it she had to take 2 rounds of steroids after it also she used to get a lot of kidney infections it used to take her 6 months after flu vax before she was going right. Again he asked her about the Covid vax and would she take it she said no. My mother has hearing aids she said to me I found it very difficult to understand him because of his mask. Both of us did not wear masks. This is what is happening to the older people when they are going to GPs on there own they are bullied and pressured to take these vaxes they cant understand what GP is saying with the masks on there faces

Dear Editor,

Change we would all agree is essential if the world is not destined to endure further destruction and devastation and even a third world war .

A ceasefire in Ukraine and the declared neutrality of Ukraine long sought after by Russia would be beneficial to all concerned.

Would this not be preferable to an escalation of armed conflict which is all too often the preferred option in a world conditioned and habituated to the belief that the world is divided up into goodies and baddies. “We” being preternaturally the “goodies”.

All State Land And Property To Be Sold To a Private Entity Called The Land Development Agency. Yes you heard this correctly.

The government is transferring all state land and property to a private entity called the Land Development Agency. We cannot allow this to happen. The Post Offices are semi-state owned but they are actually being starved of cash.

Richard Boyd Barret TD: In the Dail

Just wow is all I can say… of course the minister has already left the building. The boys are back in town. Fianna Fáil and the developers. This is a hyper-speed version of “The Mistakes of the Past”. This legislation is a heist, is a legal method to pillage the land bank, the entire public land bank. It’s absolutely extraordinary. It’s not just local authorities, it’s every single public sector and their land. Not just housing land, “any relevant land” you can look at the definition in the legislation. They can take any bit of land from any public body and they can do what they like with it.
