No, not really. Israel did not confess war crimes. It never does. It proudly announced that it will now commit a war crime:

Israel's defence minister described Palestinians as "human animals" and vowed to "act accordingly," as fighter jets unleashed a massive bombing campaign on the Gaza Strip. read full story / add a comment

The NATO proxy war in Ukraine is not going well and the latest incarnation of it, in the form of the counter offensive has failed. The Ukrainian army is badly depleted and all the best troops long used up. The NeoCons who are in power and the real force behind NATO are desperate since the decades long plot to destroy Russia via Ukraine is looking like a complete failure and is their last chance to remain the dominant power. What they don't realize is their uni polar world is already gone.


But they are not about to give up easily and it has been long predicted they would try something stupid like a nuclear false flag incident where they would blame Russia on blowing up the huge Zaporozhye NPP nuclear plant and causing widespread radioactivity and then this could be a pretext for a state of emergency and an excuse for NATO to get involved directly in the war. This would be easily sold to the public but would be a massive and dangerous escalation.

Last weekend was a busy weekend as protests got underway that brought tens of thousands of people onto the streets to in the case of Italy demand an end to weapons delivery to Ukraine to Anti NATO protests in France and Germany and a rally for peace in Ukraine in Berlin

As is normal anything not fitting the narrative does not get covered in the MSM.

Seymour Hersh the veteran US investigate journalist who in the past broke many major stories from the Watergate, CIA Assassinations, My Lai Massacre, Israeli nuclear weapons, Abu Ghraib, Syrian False Flag Chemical Weapon, Killing Bin Laden. And now he strikes again with an article on how the Americans carried out the destruction of the Russian-German Nordstream I and II pipelines.

Nordstream I was supplying the German economy with huge quantities of gas and Nordstream II which had been completed but not yet put into action was permanently put of action by the sabotage. This forced Germany to buy far more expensive liquidified natural gas, making their industry far less competitive and cutting off any reapproachment with Russia. The US government had repeatedly tried to block the construction of NordStream II and had stated one way or another it would not go ahead. Yet when the pipeline was blown up, Germany did nothing and took in lying down. An once proud nation reduced to an obedient subservient vassal state

In Hersh's article which he published on his substack because mainstream media has long ceased to carry any truth and this was the most effective way to get the story out, documents step by step on how they planned, implemented and carried out the attack. The consequence of this news story have rippled around the world but not in the collective West that have done their level best to make sure the news was not reported. The opening paragraph begins:

The New York Times called it a “mystery,” but the United States executed a covert sea operation that was kept secret—until now

On Dec 13th 2022, Andrew Bridgen UK MP finally had enough and decided he could no longer stay silent and gave a speech in the British Parliament. Since that day for the crime of breaking the narrative the establishment has carried out a witch hunt to vilify him and to throw destroy his career and slandering and spreading lies and mistruths about him since.

The whole point of the witch hunt is to send a warning to anyone else to not even think about breaking ranks because this big huge open secret about the dangers and terrible harm caused by the Covid vaccine must not be spoken.

There was widespread coverage that he had said something upsetting to the system but for those searching it would be hard to find out what it was he said so to redress the balance we carry the text of his speech and the video and audio as well as a link to an interview he did sometime later where he gave some background to the whole affair. read full story / add a comment

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.

In a recent interview of retired Colonel Douglas MacGregor he provides more details on what happened and it was reported on by rt.com

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.

The Hate Speech Bill is an anti democratic bill and is all about shutting down free speech under the pretext of hate speech. A reading of the proposed legisalation as analysed by Tracey O'Mahoney shows the terms and definitions and conditions are so loose that it can and will be used to silence anyone who questions the narrative or government. This bill must be opposed.

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.

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).

Galway County Council have proposed by laws that are truly Orwellian and all about control. One has to ask if this is a trial balloon for this were to succeed other councils were surely try it and before we know it hiking would be banned as well and basically all access to the outdoors. Remember that this was effectively done during Covid lockdowns so government know they can do it

This story has got fairly wide traction and rightly so. Here is a report from AFLOAT magazine


West coast windsurfers, sailors and other water users have expressed alarm over a proposal to ban all leisure activities other than swimming on Galway county beaches.

Under the draft legislation, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, stand-up paddling and horse-riding would be banned at 24 beaches extending from the Aran islands to Connemara to Portumna with a risk of fines of up to €1900.
