The usage of the term ‘woke’ has spread rapidly in the last ten years from meaning awareness of racial prejudice and discrimination to describing the identity politics of various ethnic groups in the USA. The term has a long history reaching back to the 1930s when Black American folk singer-songwriter Huddie Ledbetter, a.k.a. Lead Belly finished a song advising people with the words to ‘best stay woke, keep their eyes open.’

The history of ethnic- or identity- based politics has long been a long one in the United States going back to the ethnocultural (ethnic, religious and racial identity) politics of the 19th century. Identity- based politics resurfaced in the 1960s with the Black Panther Party (BPP) (originally the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense), a Black Power political organization founded by college students Bobby Seale and Huey P. Newton in 1966. In the 1970s, identity politics were seen with the Black feminist socialist group, Combahee River Collective, and spread with the LGBT movements of the 1980s. Today ‘wokism’ is associated with identity-based groups such as Black Lives Matter (BLM). read full story / add a comment

Covid-19 is treated in the mass media as a very dangerous disease in the face of which mass vaccination and severe restrictions for the whole society are applauded despite few deaths beyond the risk groups. But in Norway, it has now been decided to treat it like other respiratory diseases, such as influenza or the cold virus, because according to the Norwegian Institute of Public Health it is no longer more dangerous than these. read full story / add a comment

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

Joining our host Sara Haboubi are Mattie McGrath (Independent TD), Dr. Micheal McConvill, Dr. Martin Feeley, Dr Vincent Carroll, Melissa Ciummei (investor) and Paddy Hennessey (Irish Nurses for Transparency and Openness).

On (28th of Sept) Ireland was hailed as the best in the world for “Covid turnaround” (1). Yet, compared to this time last year there has been a significant increase in cases, ICU & hospital admissions (2). Since we began creating this video a few days ago, the 2021 figures quoted cases have risen and it won’t stop there; it’s simply not possible as we have already seen these case numbers prior to Winter, so what really lies ahead? Why are countries with the highest vaccination rates reporting the highest case figures? (3). Has the “successful” rollout created a bigger problem? (4). Why are we STILL being lied to? Why when you die with Covid you die OF it, but when you die post vaccine, it has nothing to do with the vaccine? Can we trust those advising us to take the shot…and give it to our kids? Have they any conflicts of interest or a questionable past? What is really happening in our nursing homes? (5*) In the coming months & years the truth will emerge. read full story / add a comment

Letter from a serving member of the state of Victoria Police in Australia

Hi Tommy.

I am a current serving member of Victoria Police in Australia. I am embarrassed by my organizations approach to policing this so called pandemic. Just thought Id reach out to you and let you know that there are many among us that dont agree with this approach and are willing to put our careers on the line to speak out against it.

I am one of those and I hope that by me speaking out it may encourage others to do the same.

Following is the body of an email I sent to Victoria Police Management, yesterday, prior to todays protest in Melbourne.

It may cost me my Career but its a small price to pay in the pursuit of liberty and an end to this current dictatorship we are living under.

Keep up the good work.

If you believe the government will lift the restrictions in October, I have beachfront property in Switzerland I can sell to you.

I firmly believe there are a lot more worse lockdowns coming instead unless the public unite to say no.
