It is quite amazing just as Europe is beginning to ease lookdowns due to rising public impatience that a new scare comes along at just the right time for the governments trying to impose these pointless lockdowns for which there are over 37 peer reviewed scientific papers proving they do not work.

For the past few weeks, the 24x7 constant fear and propaganda has switched its focus to India to give us the impression that half country is dying. So Lets break down the figures and put things in context.

“As an MIT PhD in Biological Engineering who studies & does research nearly every day on the Immune System, the coronavirus fear mongering by the Deep State will go down in history as one of the biggest frauds to manipulate economies, suppress dissent, & push Mandated Medicine.” Dr.Shive Ayyadurai

“The state has no interest in vaccinating people where transmissibility is not reduced or relevant. It cannot mandate submissive behavior that is an experiment on humans, which violates the Nuremberg Code.” Dr. Harvey Risch, Yale School of Public Health, 8 March 2021

Almost no coverage of the protest can be found in the mainstream media. Once again it falls to RT.com to do the reporting and with video coverage scattered across twitter. Here is their report

Thousands of protesters have descended on London to protest the British government’s ongoing coronavirus restrictions. Though pubs and shops have reopened, stiff limits on gatherings remain in place.

Holding signs reading “Freedom is non-negotiable” and “No health passports,” the demonstrators gathered in the capital on Saturday. Billed by its organizers as the “biggest street party London has ever seen,” the rally drew thousands of participants unhappy with the lingering restrictions on gatherings and movement, and opposed to the government’s vague plans to introduce so-called ‘vaccine passports’.

An Itialian woman of 55 years of age who was pro-vaccine and delighted to receive it so much so that she announced it on her facebook page. The woman, a music teacher soon fell ill in the days that followed and later scans of her brain showed blood clots.

She fell into a coma on 28 March and died on 30 March - 19 days after having the experimental vaccine. Her family have now announced to the media that they are taking legal action. They may not been aware but that in every single country, governments have given full indemnity to vaccine manufacturers and it means anyone taking a case must take their case against the government. They will be unlikely to get a fair hearing since these same governments are forcing these vaccine upon their populations. read full story / add a comment

This report describes how the idea of a German Exit or Dexit from the EU is gaining political traction in Germany because of widespread eurosceptism there. Many Germans feel they are no longer benefiting and it is instead causing them problems. The mainstream media as usual has tried to label it a far-right thing as they do with everywhere with anyone who disagrees with the mainstream narrative no matter what it is. But while it might have started on the right, the mood has spread to much broader sections of the populace so much so that the AfD party are opening calling for Dexit

One feature of the Covid Scamdemic is that the maddest and most repressive measures are the ones that get implemented in the end. Just as you thought it couldn't get worse we have this report carried by gript.ie which appears to be the only news outlet left that does not parrot government propaganda, lies and fear. Many of course but they are sheep, probably think this is a great idea. BTW, this is exactly what the so called conspiracy theorists were predicting from the get-go.

A senior Australian government minister did not rule out Australian citizens being forced to wear electronic ankle bracelets to ensure they adhere to home quarantine – even if they are fully vaccinated.

Iconic author Frederick Forsyth has accused the UK government of waging a “campaign of mass fear” against the British public by using psychological methods to ensure compliance with lockdown that resemble those used against East Berliners in the 1960’s. Forsyth was responding to an article published in the Telegraph which exposed the “covert tactics” being used by the British government to frighten the public into complying with COVID regulations. read full story / add a comment

Having recently stated publicly that I would ‘not administer a genetic-vaccine to a healthy animal, never mind a ‘healthy human being,’ I have been asked by friends (and foes) to clarify this statement, and will attempt to do so here.

"What’s striking about all the above predictions of infections and deaths is not just that they were all wrong. It’s the arrogance and confidence behind each of them"

This report clearly shows that as with Florida where there is no lockdown, restrictions or masks, people are not dying. Now Texas has reversed all the Orwellian draconian rules and cases are falling. There is NO disaster. The doom sayers are completely wrong
