BREAKING: Patriots Have Stormed the Capitol Building — Masses Breaching Federal Barriers — Cops Losing Control (VIDEOS)

“Patriots have stormed the Capitol building ground and are breaching federal barriers and police in the masses. No cell service but video coming. Non lethal force in effect. Full unlawful assembly in display. Never seen anything like this. Insane. Thousands occupying,” Schaffer said.

LONDON OUTRAGE! Massive Police Brutality Recorded with Attacks Against Peaceful Protesters Over COVID Restrictions

by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

The citizens of London were strictly ordered NOT to protest outdoors on Saturday, November 28, 2020.

Tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, disobeyed their government and took to the streets in peaceful protests over new COVID restrictions. (The “official” corporate media report is that “300-400” turned out to protest. Watch the video below to see for yourself.)

And the police responded. They ganged up and assaulted women, old men, and others.

The corporate media is reporting “over 60” were arrested, but other reports state “hundreds” were arrested.

Their crime? Walking in parks and on public streets. That’s it.

Words cannot describe what I have seen in recordings filmed during the protests in London earlier today and posted on Social Media.

I grabbed as many of these video clips as I could as Twitter seemed to be deleting them as fast as I was downloading them.

Coronavirus Victoria: Treasury economist resigns in protest at ‘police state’

A former economist at the Victorian Treasury Department has quit his job in protest at Daniel Andrews’ “police state”, penning a devastating op-ed slamming the government’s coronavirus response.

Sanjeev Sabhlok, who moved to Melbourne from India in 2001, resigned last week after being asked to remove a number of inflammatory social media posts criticising the state government.

Mr Sabhlok runs a blog and has a Twitter account with more than 3000 followers where he has railed against COVID-19 lockdowns, and in some cases called for politicians responsible to be jailed.

“These monsters need to be tried for crimes against humanity and shot,” Mr Sabhlok said in one post earlier this month, responding to a tweet by UK conservative commentator Suzanne Evans criticising a Labour MP in that country.

From the NZ govt: a new bill with online take-down powers

We are seeing more and more censorship now. It’s taken for granted by most reasonable people that seriously offensive/violent material be censored however this is a growing trend and repeatedly information that simply politely questions or takes an alternative view to the government narrative is being ‘fact checked’ and removed by Facebook. One of those disturbing issues is the right to choose which medical intervention we are subjected to. Increasingly also it is difficult to find in an internet search, any info that is alternative to mainstream. Such is the push now to decide for you what info you ought to read. And which info you ought not to read. I certainly have noticed that although there is censorship detailing ‘violence’ as the rationale, there has been no intervention with regard to the violent online games available to young, malleable and vulnerable minds?? Since the event of last March 2019 about which we are not allowed to speak, wouldn’t the violent games surely have been the first thing to go? It seems the corporation (parading as a government) never blinks an eye at that violence. EWR

From the msn.com

The Government has introduced a bill that will allow it to issue takedown notices and create internet filters, with a focus on combatting terrorism and violent extremism, Marc Daalder reports

New legislation will enable the Government to issue takedown notices and create internet filters for content deemed objectionable by the Chief Censor, with an eye towards terrorist and violent extremist content.

Newsroom first reported the Government was moving ahead with the suite of reforms in January. The bill was meant to be introduced in March but seems to have been delayed by Covid-19.

The bill does not appear to have changed significantly from the proposal Internal Affairs Minister Tracey Martin took to Cabinet in December.

It’s all going according to the globalist plan

Agenda 21/30, global government, new world order now in plain sight, the perfect storm, especially with race in the mix. This is their trump card (no pun intended). They’ve used it for centuries. Divide and rule, easily done especially if you have long-term oppressed one of those parties. Either way they care zilch about any of us. And as always they have their quietly disguised ‘troops’ on the ground out there stirring up trouble, fomenting unrest, rolling out psyops so you can’t see the wood for the trees & what they want most of all is an excuse now to clamp down with police state rules. Too many waking up to the medical scenario … Remember, they control the media. Don’t take their bait. Stay safe folks. EWR

Psychiatrist predicts the proposed IDSA guidelines could contribute to a “national and global epidemic of psychiatric illnesses”

‘..recommends against testing for Lyme disease …” the go-to of the current era, the modus operandi for ‘cover up big time’. The new norm. In NZ they don’t test for 1080 poisoning so as you won’t find it.  ‘Problem solved’. EWR

 


He points out that no psychiatrists sat on the guidelines panel. Yet, the IDSA recommends against testing for Lyme disease in adult patients with psychiatric illness.
“The proposed guidelines fail to recognize the clear causal association between Lyme disease and psychiatric illnesses in children and adults that may include suicide, violence, substance abuse and developmental disabilities. Suicide is a major cause of mortality in patients with Lyme disease.”

Psychiatrist Robert Bransfield predicts the proposed IDSA guidelines could contribute to a “national and global epidemic of psychiatric illnesses, suicide, violence, substance abuse and developmental disabilities in children and adults.”

Dr. Bransfield is an internationally recognized expert on how Lyme disease affects the brain. He has just published a scathing critique of the proposed IDSA Lyme guidelines as they relate to psychiatric conditions.

In an open-access article entitled Proposed Lyme Disease Guidelines and Psychiatric Illnesses, in the medical journal Healthcare, he calls the guidelines “evidence-biased” instead of “evidence-based.”

He points out that no psychiatrists sat on the guidelines panel. Yet, the IDSA recommends against testing for Lyme disease in adult patients with psychiatric illness. Furthermore, the guidelines recommend against Lyme testing for children with developmental, behavioral, or psychiatric disorders.

The truth behind the Safe Schools program (Part 3)

See Part 1 here & Part 2 here

From the whaleoil blog:

This is disturbing. I’ve seen the agenda popping up in NZ now, the latest being the anti bullying day May 17th wherein every child had to wear something pink. So the real agenda is parading as anti-bullying in some parts of the planet. Here is a US blog also speaking to this issue. Australia’s ‘You’re Teaching Our Children What?’ site is pretty comprehensive on the topic. They also have a Facebook page if you are interested. And no we are not anti gay people, we are pro transparency! Gary Dowsett referred to in the article alludes to ‘inter-generational love’ (aka pedophilia). Note how they re frame everything?

Nobody wants bullying & I’m sure that stamping it out in our schools could be achieved without the requirement of children wearing pink. If pushing gender reassignment is the goal they should be up front and saying so, not cloaking it in other terms. Thereby parents would have a choice to opt their children out. I won’t pontificate further, please just read & decide for yourself. Or perhaps if you haven’t already, get yourself down to your child’s school and ask to see the full ‘safe schools’ curriculum. There is a link to the whole article below. EWR.

Ministry of Sexualisation Part 3: Gender clinics in NZ schools?

Gender clinic

After introducing you to part two?yesterday the investigative series continues…

Safe Schools has landed in New Zealand, with the blessing of the Ministry of Education. The Ministry of Education wants ?inclusive school-wide systems?, and their website is now littered with links and videos directing teachers to Minus-18 and The Safe Schools Coalition.

Much like ?Safe Schools”, we are seeing the MoE push what are effectively ?Gender Clinics? into schools. These will include nurses and access to methods of transition directly from their school.

Couple this with the fact that they also want teachers to keep secrets from parents, and we?re headed for dangerous and uncharted waters.
It?s important to remember New Zealand has very relaxed parental notification laws as it is, and teenagers are notorious for making poorly thought out choices.

Evolve is listed in the above image as a ?Partner Agency? for helping kids transition.

I have been speaking with a Wellington woman who says her daughter, in one counselling session with Evolve, became convinced she was a boy.
Without parental consent, this 16 year old girl was given a boy’s haircut, boy’s clothing, and a new name. She was also provided a breast binder to make her appear more flat chested and given a referral to begin the pathway of puberty blockers.

Ministry of Sexualisation: Part 2

Online videos show 11-year-old Desmond Napoles dancing on stage in a bar while grown men throw money at him neonnettle

After introducing you to part one yesterday, the investigative series continues.

Schools should be a safe place to be, but for the majority, they will soon become unsafe. Safe Schools has landed in New Zealand, with the blessing of the Ministry of Education.

[…] No other special interest group is granted such privileges.
We don?t devote entire lessons to the visually impaired, create ‘blind pride’ days, or include blind heroes in every class. We don?t demand teachers police blind-phobic language, or that they wear braille name-tags.

Perhaps we should. It would give a far more positive school environment than constantly bringing sex to the forefront of children’s minds.
This is the essence of what the Rainbow movement is about.

The entire culture and worldview is centred around who a person wants to have sex with.

Perhaps we should just let kids be kids.

I recently wrote a four-part series of articles exposing the hidden aspects of the Secondary School program Mates&Dates. The program uses innocuous sounding words such as ?gender stereotypes?.

‘Gender Stereotypes’ classes are not teaching kids that it’s okay for girls to like rugby and boys to like cooking. They are teaching a redefined meaning of gender.

Three things stand out from the above image:

1. The Ministry of Education wants ‘inclusive school-wide systems’.

2. The Ministry of Education officially sanctions the ‘Safe schools coalition’?

3. Views which are not in favour of homosexual & Trans people are ‘a form of violence’.

France “They shot me like a rabbit!” | State Sanctioned Violence

A must read & watch! The Yellow Vests, State sanctioned Police violence on unarmed Yellow Vest protesters, including the aged, disabled & children. What mainstream media will not (ever) be telling you. This is from an independent journalist on the ground.

French Police are committing suicide as Yellow Vest protests continue

Thanks to Julie Williams for this link. The presenter Polly has a YT channel with much thought provoking material. This particular video is in my opinion an excellent overview of what is going on in France right now with the Yellow Vests movement. As she points out media is not reporting what is really going on & if you watch the video the YVs themselves accuse them of lying. No surprises there with MSM.  Then there are the Police suicides which are not being reported. French Police taking their own lives? That speaks volumes. There have been so far 8 protester deaths with thousands injured & growing. She speaks also of a man who went in to defend Police harassment of his pacifist wife, who when later charged, was given the financial support of the YVs for legal costs. The establishment then froze that bank account containing the funds so they could not access them. Now this is fascism and Polly refers to a survey funded by CEs supporting their belief that corporate CEs have the means by which to bring about order. This she says, is a fascist takeover by corporates & is fitting with the ‘rules based World Order’ as opposed to ‘law based’. Corporations can’t make laws but they do make rules & they have the means already to enforce them. Take away people’s ability to defend themselves by freezing their bank accounts, or destroy their livelihood by firing them or closing their bank accounts. This has already happened in NZ historically.

The yellow vests protest – raw footage of police brutality

Two videos from YT on the ongoing yellow vest protests in France. The first one gives a graphic view of the force of the police there (80K of them, and previous reports say they are believed to have been infiltrated by EU German forces) & the second a glimpse into the very brutal police retaliation, rubber bullets at close very range, (dropping tear gas from helicopters in other videos), also graphic footage of outright beating of innocent by standers, one an elderly man at a bus stop with his wife that has gone viral. Disturbing times. Just watching this situation.

Some truth on the alleged threats to DoC staff: an OIA request to Police reveals 9 in the last 31 months, DoC says 93 last month

pinocchio-2917652_1280(Nov. 2018) If all of this does not convince you of how powerfully the media shapes the public’s perception of reality I’m afraid nothing will. Here we have an obvious skewing of numbers to convince you that people who want clean drinking water, who do not want their food sources poisoned, are actually a bunch of violent terrorists. Quite frankly I think they’ve over skewed it this time. It isn’t a matter of a slight margin of difference, it is a very glaring fudging of the facts. The following article is compiled from information posted from research on the  ‘No to 1080 Use in NZ’ Facebook page, and from Carol Sawyer. It includes a further update by Carol following a news item on NewsHub last night.

OIA reveals false claims from DoC

“Can we expect our Government agencies like the New Zealand Department of Conservation (DoC) to tell us the truth?

It would appear not.

Over the past year, there have been increasing claims in the media from people like Lou Sanson, Director-General of the DoC and Nicola Toki, DoC’s ‘Threatened Species Ambassador’ that ‘anti-1080 activists are dangerously out of control’, ‘have gone feral’ and even ‘ are repeatedly making death threats to DoC staff’.

On 31st August this year, we exposed the truth about these lies. We reported the response to an Official Information Act to the New Zealand Police, which asked ‘exactly HOW MANY threats of violence towards DoC staff had been recorded from so-called ‘anti-1080 activists in the past 2 years?’ and perhaps more importantly, ‘how many of these were being upheld?’”

The answer, back then, was six:

OIA threats to DoC.jpg

Between March 2016 and March 2018 there were a total of only SIX reports of threats to NZ Police, of which, ZERO were being progressed to prosecution. Nil prosecutions. Surprise, surprise!

So since then, from March up to October 2018, how many MORE threats to DoC do you think have been reported to the Police? After all, there was (according to TVNZ in Sept) a “sharp rise in threats to DoC staff”. Numerous media articles have attempted to alarm the public about the ‘dangers’ of ‘anti-1080 activists’. Then there was the commencement of a costly contract with the private security firm, Thompson and Clark (April 2018). Journalists like Tom O’Connor writing opinion pieces with headlines like ‘Anti-1080 protesters’ threats to human life inexcusable’…..
so, how many threats were actually reported to the Police?

THREE.

Yes, that’s right, since March 2018 there has been an ‘explosion’ of the numbers of threats to….um,

the same, on average, as the previous two years.


On 7th of November we have a further update on mainstream media’s reporting :

THREATS TO DoC FROM ANTI-1080 PEOPLE

“Well, well, well – tonight we have the government-driven “drama queens” on Newshub coming up with another fantastical story… DoC is apparently trembling in its boots because of threats to shoot down helicopters, string wires across valleys, etc. Their “wheels have been slashed” and their “tyres loosened”… NONE OF THIS IS TRUE! In the Newshub story …

… not a single shred of evidence for its claims was produced.

The story starts off :

“Newshub can reveal the Prime Minister has received multiple threats from anti-1080 extremists including at least one death threat.” However, when Jacinda Ardern is asked ” Have they threatened your life or safety?” she looks uncomfortable and replies “Er, look I..I have been.. had some incidents, er, that I’ve been made aware of, um, but actually… (and then goes on to say she is more concerned about frontline staff).

Meanwhile, back in the real world where we all not only have to defend ourselves against poison but also against the self-interested exaggerations of the poisoners, two OIA requests reveal exactly …

NINE so-called threats in the last 2 years and 7 months! None has progressed to prosecution.

Lou Sanson says there were NINETY-THREE threats last month. The date on the latest OIA response from the NZ Police is 1 November, 2018. How does this work exactly Lou Sanson?

In case you missed it, here is the news report:

https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2018/11/exclusive-pm-jacinda-ardern-doc-staff-get-death-threats-from-anti-1080-extremists.html?fbclid=IwAR10IO0_b3tr7O4x4c4VIKdejCEU_28ZJZuE_5pSColcZMlQjiLDQ-BUas8

Below are copies of the latest OIA request to Police:

IN CONCLUSION:

Whether any of the 3 alleged threats will progress to a prosecution, remains to be seen. But if previously reported incidents are anything to go by (e.g. a threatening phone call, and a note left on a DoC vehicle) we doubt it very much.

We need to call out DoC about their constant and tiresome Fake News. And we need to make the media accountable for perpetuating their lies. We need to ask for more evidence whenever DoC make a claim; they are simply untrustworthy.

Some examples of recent Fake News articles below.

“Southern police have also revealed they are investigating several threats made last year to sabotage 1080 operations, including one involving the setting of man traps. Department of Conservation (Doc) operations director southern South Island Aaron Fleming said in recent months there had been an increase in threats and harassment to Doc staff and contractors nationwide, including eight in Otago and Southland.” (Otago Daily Times, 6 Oct 2018)

“There are fears for the safety of conservation workers and contractors after recent attacks on their vehicles. In three instances wheel nuts on the vehicles were loosened in acts believed to be connected to protests over the Conservation Department’s use of 1080 poison for pest management. In the most serious case a contractor avoided injury when a wheel came off while he was driving, after its nuts had been loosened. DOC director-general Lou Sanson said toxic bait had been put in a staff letterbox and he had also seen other threatening posts on Facebook recently.” (New Zealand Radio, 29 Sept 2017)

“DOC appalled at latest 1080 threats to staff: The Department of Conservation (DOC) confirms that it has asked New Zealand Police to investigate after receiving a second threatening letter from an anti-1080 protestor in Taranaki. The aggressive letter intensifies threats against DOC staff and claims more sika deer will be released unless DOC stops its use of 1080 to control predators.” (Scoop, 5 December 2017)

“Sharp rise in threats to DOC as anti 1080 protesters hold mass demonstrations” TVNZ, 1 News: Sept 2018
DoC said the intelligence gathering was necessary because of threats made by anti-1080 activists who in some cases had threatened to shoot down helicopters. “They’ve threatened to kill our staff and their families, we’ve had physical confrontation, and we’ve had instances of tampering with vehicles, loosening wheel nuts. “So we needed a specialist security company to help us with that because we just don’t have the resources or expertise,” Mr Maher said. Threats are collated and assessed by Thompson and Clark as to whether they could likely be carried out. If the risk is high they are forwarded onto police. (Radio New Zealand Checkpoint: DOC Using Thompson and Clarke to monitor anti-1080 activists April 23, 2018)

Department of Conservation staff are facing a torrent of online threats and abuse following a recent spike in anti-1080 protest This is having a consequence for frontline DOC staff, Mrs Toki said incidents of threats and abuse in August were significantly higher than usual. “We had eight incidents in just one month alone where staff were physically confronted, abused or harassed and then we had seven abusive phone calls and emails” She said in addition to that there were countless harassment threats and abuse via social media which were followed up with Netsafe and the police.

Malta car bomb death shows ‘open season’ on journalists (932 killed 2006-16) – the ugly price for TRUTH

From RadioNZ

1 Nov 2017

Opinion – The car bomb killing of Maltese investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia shocked many people around the world, not just in Malta.

No caption

UN

There appears little doubt that Galizia was killed because of her reporting into wrongdoing in Malta and her constant criticism of powerful figures in that country. There are concerns too that the police in Malta will not properly investigate her killing.

But, as shocking as her murder was, unfortunately it is not unusual.

According to UNESCO 932 journalists were killed for doing their job from 2006 to 2016. Worse, it also reports that their murderers are brought to justice in less than 10 percent of these cases.

All too often there is no investigation or just a cursory inquiry into a killing.

In an effort to put a spotlight on violence against journalists – after campaigning by journalists’ unions – the United Nations made 2 November the Day to End Impunity.
