Nicola Sturgeon?s sudden fall from grace over her mad trans policies reminds us how flimsy woke ideology really is. With a little pressure, it could all collapse very suddenly.

Pfizer has denied doing gain-of-function research but also said it was engineering the virus to express variant spike proteins. Now Dr. Paul Offit has implied that such work is indeed gain-of-function research.

offsite link How the Unvaccinated Got It Right Wed Feb 01, 2023 13:00 | Robin Koerner
Whatever the risks associated with a Covid infection on the one hand, and the 'vaccine' on the other, the vaccination policy enabled massive human rights violations of the 'unvaccinated', endorsed by the 'vaccinated'.

Why are hardened male prisoners in Scotland identifying as women? The answer is because the SNP's progressive reforms of women's prisons have turned them into much more attractive places than men's prisons.

Midnight in The House of Sheridan Le Fanu

category galway | arts and media | press release author Friday December 03, 2010 18:14author by Walter Pater - The Western Writers' Centre - Ionad Scríbhneoirí Chaitlín Maude, Galwayauthor email westernwriters at eircom dot netauthor phone 087.2178138 Report this post to the editors

The Arts Council's Determination to Shut Down the Western Writers' Centre is A Victorian Melodrama

The Arts Council have refused to fund the Western Writers' Centre, Galway {Ionad Scríbhneoirí Chaitlín Maude}under the Small festivals and Events Scheme, to produce the fifth Forge at Gort Literatrure festival, scheduled for March.

Expressing his frustration at the decision, the Centre's Director, author Fred Johnston, said "One may gauge the Arts Council's 'concern.' I telephoned the relevant officer and an answering machine said she'd be back on November 16th!" Fred Johnston added that it was one more a reminder of how little the Arts Council cared for art outside the city of Dublin and its development in the regions. "No recognition of Gort's role in the Celtic Renaissance through its proximity to Coole Park, for instance, would be possible in The Arts Council. They wouldn't even be able to find the town on a map. The Arts Council are determined to render the Western Writers' Centre inoperable and have been so determined for a number of years. By some in Galway, the establishment of the Centre is considered a threat. And this in spite of its being part of the City Development Plan. It would be interesting to know whether the Council have been influenced towards their stance."
He added that several Labour and one Independent Councillor had expressed support for the Centre but had refused to do so in print. "So I won't be voting Labour and I won't be voting for that particular Councillor. They all seem terrified of the City Arts Office."
Mr Johnston pointed out that at a meeting with the Arts Council at the end of 2008, when the Centre's programming grant was withdrawn apparently on foot of a tranche of press-clippings sent to them under an assumed name, he was told in no uncertain terms that the Council did not welcome criticism. "The clippings were of letters I had published in papers critical of the arts." He added that the Festival is now in serious need of sponsorship and funding if it is to take place - inquiries to 087.2178138 - and that he would welcome members of the pubic making their views felt directly to the Arts Council at 70 Merrion Square, Dublin 2 (+353 1 618200) (Photo: Farce Council housed in former home of Sheridan le Fanu, Dublin)
