Why Are All-Cause Excess Deaths in the Under-45s So Much Higher This Year Than at the Height of the ... Mon Aug 15, 2022 14:00 | Nick Rendell
If the WHO thinks it?s worthwhile declaring a public health emergency after five Monkeypox deaths, shouldn?t the 770 excess deaths of children across Europe so far this year also be flagged as a public health emergency?

Jordan Peterson has written a great essay for the Telegraph about the utopianism that underpins the net zero agenda of the global corporate and political elites. Like other utopian projects, it will immiserate us all.

Planned Citizen's Arrest of Garda Commissioner Noirin O’Sullivan
crime and justice |
Sunday January 31, 2016 23:56 by Integrity Ireland - Integrity Ireland
Feb 1st - Mon 11am - Meet at Criminal Courts of Justice, Parkgate Street.
Feb 1st - Monday 11.00am. Meet at CCJ (Criminal Courts of Justice) on Parkgate Street (near Heuston Station). Marching on Garda HQ to conduct citizen’s arrest of Garda Commissioner Noirin O’Sullivan.
Hi Folks – well, as most of you will be aware by now, we have declared our intention to conduct a citizen’s arrest on Ms Noirin O’Sullivan, currently acting in the position of Garda Commissioner for her personal complicity in multiple instances of interfering with or obstructing the administration of justice. The arrest is scheduled to take place on Monday February 1st at Garda Headquarters, Phoenix Park, Dublin. We will be departing as a group from the Criminal Courts of Justice at 11.00am and will hand in a written statement/declaration/ arrest warrant signed by a ‘jury’ of twelve upstanding citizens
Those of you who have been following the I-I ‘story’ will be aware of our repeated attempts to use the law (legitimately) to try to hold certain corrupt, errant and criminal authority figures to account. You will also be aware that ‘the establishment’ – most notably Garda Management, State Solicitors, the DPP’s Office, GSOC, the Courts Service, various Judges and the Minister for Justice have used all manner of disingenuous and unlawful tactics to prevent or obstruct us, or otherwise ensure that themselves and their colleagues are NOT held accountable for serious and repeated breaches of the law, of the Constitution and of their solemnly-sworn Oaths of Office. In short, that many of these so-called ‘authority figures’ are themselves engaged in unlawful conduct, for the purposes of covering up crimes which have been committed by themselves, their friends, cronies and colleagues.
There are literally scores of ongoing cases where examples of this ‘official’ obstructionism is self-evident, but tomorrow, we are focusing on the Joe Doocey case, and the repeated failure and refusal of the Garda Commissioner in particular to release information to Joe so that he can prosecute his claims against the Gardaí for 16 years of harassment, assaults, intimidation, false arrest, illegal imprisonment etc etc.. Most of you will be aware that we have initiated several citizen’s arrests already and attempted a number of private prosecutions through the Courts, but that each and every step of the way, that all manner of evasiveness, trickery and illegal tactics have been deployed to try to stop us.
In the last few weeks alone for instance, we have had four different District Court Judges refusing to accept legitimate paperwork and abandoning their Courtrooms; Courts Service staff have misinformed and misled us; the Minister for Justice has lied to us in a signed letter; Gardaí have openly assaulted and intimidated us, have illegally deleted evidence of those assaults, and have also failed to act on numerous formal complaints; and GSOC is engaged in all the usual denials and cover-ups. In short – THEY are breaking the law in order to cover up their own crimes, and clearly, THEY can’t be relied upon to correct their own misbehaviour. So if THEY can’t be relied upon to obey the law – what’s to be done about it?
Well, we sent a delegation to the High Court earlier this week seeking directions and guidance as to how we can address these outrageous injustices by agents of the State – and we were told (in so many words) that there was little the Courts could do about Garda misconduct and that they weren’t there to give us legal advice anyway. So, it seems that we have to take another look at the rules and the legislation where we discover that there IS something that we can do about this – namely, that we can take direct action by arresting those responsible, and by publicising these legitimate arrests in the interests of justice and accountability. We will of course follow the letter of the law in doing so, so that ‘they’ have no cause or reason to interfere in the process, which is clearly outlined in the following Acts.
Citizen’s Arrest – Ireland: Any person can arrest someone who they have reasonable cause is in the act of committing or has committed an "arrestable" offence, that is one punishable by more than 5 years in prison. The arrest can only be effected if the arrestor has reasonable cause that the person will attempt to avoid apprehension by Gardaí and the arrestor delivers the person to Garda custody as soon as is practicable.
An ―offence against the administration of justice‖ means:
(a) an offence under section 1 of the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906 in so far as the offence concerned relates to criminal proceedings,
(b) an offence under section 41 of the Criminal Justice Act 1999 ,
(c) attempting to pervert the course of justice, (d) perjury, or (e) conspiring or inciting another person to commit any of the offences referred to in paragraphs (a) to (d). A person who harms or threatens, menaces or in any other way intimidates or puts in fear another person...with the intention thereby of causing the investigation or the course of justice to be obstructed, perverted or interfered with shall be guilty of an offence
PREVENTION OF CORRUPTION (AMENDMENT) ACT, 2001 8.—(1) A public official who does any act in relation to his or her office or position for the purpose of corruptly obtaining a gift, consideration or advantage for himself, herself or any other person, shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable—(b) on conviction on indictment, to a fine or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 10 years or to both
So, these are all clearly ‘arrestable offences’ and Joe Doocey will be present in person to ask Garda Headquarters to confirm or deny whether Joe is facing any criminal charges for what Joe claims was a series of assaults against him. Joe has had to take this dramatic step after several failed attempts by Joe’s legal representatives to get simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers from Mayo Gardaí and Commissioner O’Sullivan. Repeatedly refusing to surrender information required by a member of the public to initiate criminal charges is a clear and blatant attempt to pervert, obstruct or interfere with the administration of justice – and whilst we are very aware that Commissioner O’Sullivan is not the only one who is systematically ‘at it’ abusing their positions of authority and public trust – well, we have to start somewhere – don’t we?
We firmly believe that if we don’t make a stand on these issues now, that this slide into injustice and abuse of our fundamental rights will accelerate with the appointment of a new government and a renewed ‘mandate from the people’ for them to do as they bloody-well want for the next five years!
So please support this people’s initiative by sharing this statement far and wide – and consider how you too might be able to help - because..
