Joseph de Burca who has written regularly for the Village Magazine over the last few years has written extensively on the issue of Northern Ireland during the troubles and has investigated the links between child abuse, politicians, loyalists paramiltaries and the UK state power, has now released an online book with Village Magazine that compiles all these articles and more and helps lifts the lid on that dark history and gives an insight into current events with the Covid worldwide scamdemic demonstrating how key players in power are easily controlled and helps illuminate the role of Jeffery Epstein who spent years blackmailing some of the most powerful people in the world. And while Epstein is the name most people are familiar with, there are many many more Epstein type characters that have been doing the same work.

This op-ed written by journalist Neil Clark for the website Russia Today and is reproduced here as many readers here are from the UK and it raises very important issues

If Covid-19 ‘Freedom Day’ on June 21 is postponed, as seems likely, and the public complies with it, Britain will never return to normal. If curbs can’t be lifted when deaths ‘with’ the virus are near zero, when will they ever be?

Don’t say you weren’t warned. Having predicted correctly, before Christmas, the very day (January 4) when Boris Johnson would announce the next lockdown, on January 1, 2021, I tweeted: ‘My inside source says that there will be no significant easing of restrictions until July at the earliest. Govt mentioning Easter as they need to take backbenchers with them & want public compliance.’

The "gardai" should be renamed the GESTAPO or the STASI

These people signed to protect People, their rights and the Constitution.

And what are they doing? They violate People's rights, opress and persecute citizens and violate the constitution.

Anyone in the Gardai who disagree with what he/she is told to do, should quit and seek another career outisde of what has become a fascist organization controlled by foreign globalist orgs and corporations.

The gobshite me(ass)hole) martin and his junior partner the world economic poodle varadkar are criminal puppets serving foreign and private interests.

If gards want to do the job our taxes pay them for, the first criminals to arrest are these two assholes.

Nakba, May 15, 2021. Future historians will mark the day when Western “liberal democracy” issued a graphic proclamation: We bomb media offices and destroy “freedom of the press” in an open air concentration camp while we forbid peaceful demonstrations under a state of siege in the heart of Europe.

And if you revolt, we cancel you.
