You read that right. The EU has done all the legal work to allow crushed and powdered insects -namely house Crickets to be mixed in with all sorts of food ingredients and a soon as next week, Jan 24th it can start being used in foods like breads, pastas, soups, meats, snacks, chocolates, beers and a whole host of products.

Much of this is all under the guise of saving the planet and eating less meat but it is nothing of the sort and is simply a plan to get the plebs to eat from the bottom of the food chain while the rich and powerful will continue to dine on steaks as the whiz from one conference to the next around the world in their private jets.

The psychopaths in power in Germany are finding it very difficult to give up their Nazi past and the Covid-19 scamdemic was a shot in the arm for the revival of this behaviour for as this story below shows they want to lock up a 85 year Holocaust survivor because she insists on NOT taking the deadly Covid jab.

The story is reported on rt.com which can be accessed through a VPN.

Composer Inna Zhvanetskaya has reportedly gone into hiding to prevent authorities from forcibly imprisoning and vaccinating her.

Soviet-born composer Inna Zhvanetskaya is reportedly in hiding from German authorities after they attempted to have the 85-year-old committed to a mental institution and inoculated against her will with a Covid-19 shot, German outlet Report24 said on Thursday. Zhvanetskaya was born in Vinnytsia, in the Ukrainian SSR, in 1937 and as a child survived the nazi holocaust

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.

Euthanasia has been in the news quite a bit in the last few years and it is always cast in terms of the right to die and reducing suffering. What is never discussed or considered is that once it gets into the legislation, the scope for abuse by the State is enormous and while you might think it may never happen, given the madness over the last 3 years and the fact that the last two years the full force of the state was used to get everyone to take a dangerous and deadly jab, then it is clear they will quickly go on to use it as yet another tool of the state.

And in this story here about Canada, that is exactly what we see.

10,000 Canadians ended their lives by euthanasia last year. The number is set to rise too, as from next year the country is set to allow citizens to choose assisted dying for mental health reasons with the threshold being dangerously lowered.

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.

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.

The bloody war in Ukraine egged on and supported by the USA, NATO and EU continues to drag on as well as the idiotic self destructive sanctions is only going to end up to the great detriment to Europe. In this article written by Dr. Seshadri Kumar he presents his analysis and it is important that these are made more widely known.

At the start of the human tragedy that is the Ukraine war, I delved into the underlying causes of the conflict from the perspective of a historian and political scientist. That analysis, “Understanding The Great Game in Ukraine,” is available here.

Events have progressed since then, and an important fallout of the war has been economic. In this article, I look at the role and situation of Europe from the perspective of an economist.

The European Union has taken a very definite political stance on the Russia-Ukraine conflict, aligned with the United States. It has applied 8 rounds of economic sanctions against Russia, and at the time of writing, is working on a 9th package.

New data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) shows that ever since Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines” were launched, the birth rate Down Under has plunged by an astounding 63 percent.

From October to November in 2021, there was a 21 percent decrease in births compared to the average over a 10-year period. From November to December 2021, just one month later, there was a 63 percent decrease in births. read full story / add a comment

Germany once again has returned to its totalitarian ways as over the last 2 years it has become increasing repressive on anyone speaking against the official narrative and now as they have frozen the bank account of Journalist Alina Lipp. When that was not enough to shut her up then they frozen the bank accounts of her father and mother.

Big Tech which is a key part of the global totalitarian system closed her YouTube channel, blocked her PayPal account. The German state then sentenced her to three years in prison without trial for interviewing Ukrainian citizens in the Donbas. She has wisely since fled to safety of Crimea where now now her mother has joined her after the German state went after her too. read full story / add a comment

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).

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 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
