Human rights law is not about protecting us from Big Brother, says Dr David McGrogan. It's more like Big Brother's ?Little Brother?, helping him expand the state?s reach into every nook and cranny of our lives.

No peace with the German conditions!

We have come, and we will stay. This house was occupied by people with Kufiya in 1989. In 2024 the Kufiya will return – whether you like it or not!

We bring you two messages:

The first goes to the “Red” Flora: We are not coming to your table. We'll go into the house, do our thing, and if you want, you can talk to us. But your plenum doesn't exist to us.

The second message is: The politics of every house that is not dependent on the German state can and will be determined by migrants and anti-imperialist leftists. Let's throw out the imperial NATO leftists and “anti-German” Israel fetishizers! The time has long since come.

Eddie Hobbs author, presenter and financial advisor is probably best known for co-writing and presenting RTE’s 2005 blockbuster Rip Off Republic a hard-hitting polemic that closely examined how Ireland is run. He’s also presented RTE’s award winning personal finance series Show Me The Money, entertainment programme 30 Things to do with your SSIA, The Consumer Show and My Civil War.

Since the Covid years he is one of the few mainstream people to try and expose the truth about what happened during Covid, the dangers of the vaccines and has gone down the rabbit hole to bring to our attention the outright lying and takeover of the 4th estate -i.e. the mainstream media. He is not concentrating the imminent threat of the WHO treaty which is nothing short of a complete take over of government around the world and to which our own government has said they will sign up to, giving away huge swaths of our sovereignty.

Breaking The Silence the first mustering, Cork Apr 25th jam packed, the WHO now being challenged by the US Senate [Rep] en bloc, is delivery of globalist technocracy. It is THE issue of our times, the EU flooding is part of the strategy. RT like Hell tx read full story / add a comment

The depths of depravity of Israel show no signs of finding new lows. In the past few months they have massacred thousands of civilians, collapsed buildings, hospitals, shot at people rushing to get food aid, shot aid works, dropped bombs on large gatherings of civiliams.

Today though at Middle East Eye they report on this story:

Recently Israeli forces claimed they attacked the Al-Shifa hospital and killed many leading Hamas leaders. As with everything issued by them it is of course suspect. Now the truth has come out via a young boy who survived the massacre and in conjunction with evidence from Hamas that many of the people they claimed to have killed are not in fact even in Gaza, it turns out that Israeli forces carried out a genocidal massacre

The argument is based on both ethical and factual points. I will start by commenting on the latter, as unfortunately it seems like these comrades have fallen into an alternative reality, shaped by Russia Today and other Russian-sponsored social media disinformation. read full story / add a comment

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign, supported by scores of other Irish civil society groups, has called another National Demonstration for Palestine on Saturday 17th February, starting at the Garden of Remembrance at 1pm and going to the Department of Foreign Affairs on St. Stephen’s Green to bring our demands to the Irish government’s doorstep.


END GAZA GENOCIDE!
END ISRAELI APARTHEID!
SANCTIONS NOW!
FREEDOM AND JUSTICE FOR PALESTINE!

This march – endorsed by scores of Irish civil society organisations – has been called as part of the Global Day of Action for Gaza. Last month we made history with one of the largest demonstrations in Irish history, bringing 100,000 people onto the streets for Palestine. Let’s make this one EVEN BIGGER!

Tucker Carlson who has a following of millions and is even more popular since he was dropped from Fix News is of the few American journalist to challenge the narrative on many issues.

Given the NATO-Ukraine vs Russia is not going according to the plan of the USA to trigger regime change in Russia despite over $100 billion being wasted on it and at least 500,000 Ukrainians dead on behalf of US strategic interests and courtesy of the Nord Stream gas pipeline destruction carried out by the US that is leading de-industrialization of Germany and hence Europe, and of course the whole pretext of the war, then it is probably important that the public who have largely only heard the Western propaganda, should get a chance to hear what the other side has to say read full story / add a comment

Sunday World is reporting on the forced shutdown of a soup kitchen in Dublin for the homeless because the group were not registered as a charity.. However the group say due to the excessive regulation imposed that if they registered as a charity their costs would escalate and they would be forced to make it commercial. And this appears to be exactly the goal of the government to stop any voluntary soup kitchens and so prevent the likes of 200+ homeless people showing up to be fed on Grafton street.. It embarrass es the government too much

High Court Order No. 2021 / 2308P Exposes an Escalating European Constitutional Crisis under Article 40.1 of the Constitution and Article 2 of the Treaty of Europe. The State failed to Defend in Constitutional Case No. 2021 / 2308P as there is NO Defence against Article 40.1 / Art.2.

The Case Challenged all Court Summons and Orders as being unconstitutional under Article 40.1 and Article 2. The Order also exposes the fact that the DPP is NOT entitled to Prosecute while they ignore H.C. Order No. 2006 / 1114P which was Validated by the Supreme Court in Order No. 334 / 2007 and means that like the DPP , all 450 Million E.U. Citizens are IMMUNE to Court ORDERS as that Equality is Guaranteed under Article 40.1 and Article 2.

This S.C. Case Law is being used by Lay Litigants to Terminate Mortgage Arrears Litigation by Banks and Vultures with 100% success. There is additional S.C. Case Law No. 308 / 2009 which means that 450 million E.U. Citizens do NOT have to Defend in any Court Case and the Court MUST RULE in their FAVOUR , that Equality is Guaranteed under Article 2 of the Treaty of Europe. We have requested that Ursula Von Der Leyen send a Legal Observer to H.C. Constitutional Case No. 2017 / 8031P as the Case involves S.C. Order No. 308 / 2009 which has DISSOLVED every Court in the E.U. due to the power of Article 2. Lay Litigants are Prosecuting Perjury by multiple State Solicitors , suing Judges who loose their Privilege when they ignore the Constitution and Article 2 , also , suing Gardai personally as an arrest is now a Kidnapping and False Imprisonment , Gardai work under the DPP who is powerless.

Following the defeat of the Nice Treaty referendum, Ireland committed that our Defence Forces would only be sent overseas where approved by (i) the Government (ii) the Dáil and (iii) the United Nations.

Known as the “Triple Lock”, this commitment made in Seville, Spain, was a key argument in favour of accepting the Nice Treaty in the second referendum. (It also reaffirmed the position set out in the Defence Act 1960.) read full story / add a comment

Larry Johnson on his blog reports on the hideous actions of the Israeli state and how they are undeniably behaving like real Nazis.

He writes: If you thought that Israel has a highly professional, well-trained army, think again. The photo above shows the Israelis acting like the Nazis in Latvia in World War II. These men are not Hamas fighters. They are civilians. The bare chested man is a physician. Why is Israel, like the Nazis, photographing their victims after stripping them of their clothes? Also note that in the photo above you do not see piles of weapons. These men were not caring firearms. Just compare the photos. read full story / add a comment

The Israeli "Hannibal Directive" is the name of a controversial procedure used by Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) to prevent the capture of Israeli soldiers by the enemy and it says stopping them from being taken prisoner should be prevented by all means including up to killing their own forces. It seems during the Hamas raid on Oct 7th (2023), that Israel took this procedure to absurd levels and killed a lot more of their own including children to kill just a small number of their enemy. Then they used the death of their own by their own forces as the centre peice of the propaganda drive to launch and justify their genocidal campaign in Gaza.

The background for this comes from a report from Max Blumenthal of https://thegrayzone.com read full story / add a comment

Each year, tens of thousands of elderly and terminally ill patients are quietly euthanised in NHS facilities. In hospitals, care homes and hospices, behind closed doors, their deaths are hastened in what appears to be a caring and humane way. But how has this practice of euthanasia – illegal in the UK and carrying a life prison sentence – become so widespread and acceptable? And why are people who are nowhere near the end of their lives being given killer ‘cocktails’ of drugs that are used in many US states for executions? read full story / add a comment

There is clear evidence that Israeli has for many years planned to drive all the Palestinians out of their former ancestral lands and to drive them out of Gaza and then later the West Bank. Their current openly stated plan is to drive the South towards Egypt and across the border.

Right now they are bombing indiscriminately all over the Gaza and particularly northern Gaza to destroy everything and drive the people Southwards. At the same time Netanyahu has been embroiled in charges of corruption and political scandal and Israeli society is pretty much divided over his attempts to strip the judicial system of its power and make them political appointees.

So putting things in context, the whole idea that this was a surprise attack is extremely fishy and now evidence is pouring in to show that the whole thing has been orchestrated by sinister forces. The items below are collection of articles but the first is an of an interview of an Israeli settler who claimed the IDF/police were involved in the slaughter. read full story / add a comment
