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

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

Video footage has emerged of Paris police beating the living dayllights out of a French woman who tried to go shopping without a Covid Pass. The situation is already bad in Australia and New Zealand where they are in crazy lockdowns and Macron in France is doing everything he can to force mandatory vaccinations through by forcing the Covid "Freedom" Pass.

These passes do NOT give back your freedom. Your freedom is yours as and is not something to be handed out to you by politicians with the option to take away at any time.

It is well past the time for people to wake up to what is going on and what is coming down the line read full story / add a comment

At long last if not very very late in the day Irish doctors are finally beginning to speak out in greater numbers. Unfortunately according to the governments own figures at least 85% of all adults in Ireland have been jabbed so since the long term effects are unknown, there is potentially huge damage, harm and misery stored up in the population that could have been prevented.

Dr. John Ioannidis is a Professor of Medicine, Epidemiology and Population Health, and Biomedical Data Science at Stanford University. He was labeled "one of the most influential scientists alive" by The Atlantic and is one of the top cited scientist in the world averaging >6,000 new citations per month.

In March of 2020, Dr. Ioannidis published an opinion essay arguing against school closures, social distancing measures, and lockdowns.

In April of 2020, he published the Santa Clara study which put the infection fatality rate (IFR) at much lower than previously feared, around 0.17%.

In June of 2020, he published a meta-analysis of 23 studies which pegged the IFR around 0.26%.

This is highlights from a 2-hour presentation that he gave on June 25, 2021 where he discusses the 10,000 fold different in fatality rates between children and the elderly, the failure of lockdown policies, and much much more.

This explosive story from the DailyExpose.co.uk may be perhaps the most important story of the whole sad Covid affair for it explains a lot. Many who quickly saw through this Covid scamdemic were aware that the vast majority of deaths were in older people older than the national life expectancy despite media attempting and succeeding to make people believe much younger people were dying. However there was a real puzzle trying to explain why there was a spike in deaths in April if this was a scam considering in most years the annual spike occurs in mid Winter in January when vitamin D levels are at their lowest.

It now turns out we have the explanation and the evidence. In the UK and in Ireland at the start of the lockdown thousands of old people were booted out of hospital within hours and put into nursing homes where they no longer received the hospital care. Not only that, the UK government recommended the use of the end-of-life drug Midazolam (and used for executions in the US) which should be used with extreme care with old people and anyone with any sort of respiratory problems as it REDUCES breathing. The recommended dosage to use was 10 times higher than the maximum recommended limit for this age group. The DailyExpose also have the figures for the amount of Midazolam used and it matches the "Covid" death spike in April 2020 and the second spike in Jan 2021 which was used to prolong the lockdowns last winter.

In the case of Ireland the question is was Midazolam recommended too or was simply depriving the elderly of the sort of care they were getting in the hospitals and obviously not in the nursing home, enough to do the intended harm.

I’ve just been informed via someone senior in the vaccination authorities that they will begin VACCINATING ALL SCHOOL CHILDREN AGED 12 - 15 years old STARTING SEPTEMBER 6th 2021.

WITH OR WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT.

Children are at no measurable risk from SARS-CoV-2 & no previously healthy child has died in U.K. after infection. Not one.

The vaccines are NOT SAFE. The USA reporting system VAERS is showing around 13,000 deaths in days to a few weeks after administration. A high % occur in the first 3 days. Around 70% of serious adverse events are thromboembolic in nature (blood clotting- or bleeding-related).
