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

In wars of the current era, the use of drugs is widespread and they are used for many reasons with perhaps the most powerful motive to blot out the fear. In the case of the Ukrainian war there is the added mix that it is one of the most corrupt countries on Earth and there has been many reports that much of the small arms been shipped to Ukraine never reach the soldiers and are instead sold on the black market all over Europe. Combined with the widespread use of drugs this is leading to threatening storm that is about to engulf Europe.

In this report by Vladmir Platov, he documents what is happening.

According to the European Monitoring Center for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), the volume of drug consumption in EU countries has increased markedly this year. And this is despite the fact that in Europe, as a result of the activities of law enforcement agencies, hundreds of illegal drug laboratories are being liquidated, and more than 150 people have been arrested in the recent period alone.

The EMCDDA estimates that around 83.4 million people aged 15 to 64 in the EU, or 29% of the population, use drugs today, with more men than women. Although cannabis remains the most popular substance, ahead of cocaine, MDMA and amphetamines, it has been noted that the range of available substances for drug addicts is expanding due to synthetic drugs.

It is already widely known in non MSM circles that Zelensky was ready to make peace back in March but instead was blocked from doing so by the UK on behalf of the USA / NATO. As a result of that decision, many tens of thousands of Ukrainian soldiers have died needlessly for no good reason and Europe's economy plunged into recession. It is also why we are all paying high energy prices.

In a recent interview of retired Colonel Douglas MacGregor he provides more details on what happened and it was reported on by rt.com

This article from the https://off-guardian.org/ explains why we are still seeing reports of severe lockdowns from China and they role they have played in the narrative over the last three years.

From the opening days of Jan 2020 when the West was flooded with videos from China of lockdowns and people dropping dead, it has all seemed a bit strange. The dropping dead videos are clear enough as they were a way to prime people into the idea of people dropping dead which is exactly what is being seen now as a consequence of vaccines injury deaths and the reported dramatic increase in excess mortality since 2021 in those countries where large sections of the population were vaccinated.

However the images of utterly over the top and draconian lockdowns where people welded into their homes in China, remains unexplained until now.

The Hate Speech Bill is an anti democratic bill and is all about shutting down free speech under the pretext of hate speech. A reading of the proposed legisalation as analysed by Tracey O'Mahoney shows the terms and definitions and conditions are so loose that it can and will be used to silence anyone who questions the narrative or government. This bill must be opposed.

On Nov 30th Clare Daly MEP railed against the result of the vote on the Common Security Defence Policy ( #CSDP ) report when she took to twitter to declare:

A decade of militarisation in Europe is bearing bitter fruit. But Parliament is on track to draw exactly the wrong lesson. #CSDP report voted today in committee calls for more spending, more weapons, more #NATO.

KilkennyPress have carried a story on Nov 5th titled: ‘Kilkenny Sudden Deaths Are Frightening’ backed up with figures where they finally report that people are noticing the large increase in sudden deaths and it is getting very difficult to ignore.

As is the case else where in the media nobody wants to say what the real cause is and they would rather speculate it is a mystery. The KillkennyPress article figures show ere is the opening paragraphs of the Killkenny report overall deaths in Co Kilkenny were up 30.4% for July to October 2022 compared to July to October 2019 (Pre Covid for comparison).

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.

Hi folks. So many people were very disappointed not to been able to attend the Health Conference Ireland 2022 in August this year. As a result of this and the fact that the landscape around spike protein injuries and illness is constantly evolving, we are holding 3 events this month: Cork on the 8th, Galway on 16th and Meath 22nd Nov. This is Part 2 of the conference where Irish and US Drs will present new findings, have a panel discussion protocols and the audience can participate in the Q&A (which didn’t happen in August). It is also a great opportunity to meet like minded ppl and build local networks. Tea/coffee and a light supper will be provided. read full story / add a comment

Reuters has reported that on Oct 28th there were thousands of Czech protestors in Prague calling for the government to resign and for direct talks to be held with Russia to supply gas. The suicidal sanctions are hurting and thankfully at least in some places people are beginning to realize the NATO orchestrated war and orchestrated economic suicide are not in their interests.

In the meantime, the Irish government is attempting to bribe the population as they just announced a package of over € 1,200 million to subsidize energy bills this year and early next by paying off €200 of 2.2 million households for the next 3 billing periods. People might remember how hard the government fought to bring in Water Charges which was only going to bring in €150 million. Yet now barely without asking they are forking OUT ten times that much. The question is Why ? read full story / add a comment

The sabotage of the Nord Stream I and II gas pipelines under the Baltic Sea raises the stakes in the West vs Russian war and it now guarantees very serious energy problems for Europe this winter because it just removed the possibility of negotiation to save the day since the pipelines could probably not be fixed for months at best.

This leaves the question of who benefits? Naturally the MSM blames the attack on Russia. But they could have easily turned off the gas at source without damaging their own pipeline.

This article by Declan Hayes explains what has really happened and who benefits.

The net result of these terrorist attacks is to render obsolete German popular demands to open Nord Stream 2, Declan Hayes writes.

Address by the President of the Russian Federation on Sep 21st 2022
international / politics / elections / news report Friday September 23, 2022 21:33 by 1 of Indy   image 1 image
The full text of Putin's speech announcing the partial mobilization is reproduced here because the MSM and The West have gone completely bonkers and have been misrepresenting what was said. Also they are saying outright that Russia is losing and Putin's back is against the wall etc etc. The actual reality is nothing of the sort.

The Russians don't do bullshit like the politicians in the West do and are very upfront.

Therefore rather than listen to the "interpretation" made by the MSM and politicians who don't want you to read the actual speech and what he really said and the context, it makes more sense for you to read it yourself and make up your own mind.

People ought to remember that the West is openly saying they want to bring down the government of Russia and prolong the war to hurt them. The people saying this are not peace keepers and are not your friend. We are now all facing into Winter where it looks like we are going to face severe discomfort and blackouts, as well as huge energy prices and shortages. This will destroy the economy. Europe is committing suicide through these insane sanctions that only hurt Europe at the behest of the US & NATO. It is therefore prudent to see what is behind the curtain
