    Lee Kim Yew

    Prominent Malaysian Businessman/Entrepreneur Lee Kim Yew, completely baffled by increasing number of sudden deaths, asks for investigation.

    Asks what everyone is thinking about:
    “is it because of COVID-19, that is, the virus, or the aftereffects of being infected with the virus, or the aftereffects of getting vaccinated…?”

    The Plans of the Globalists

    David Icke

    China Is The Globalist Blueprint For The West

    As so-called “conspiracy theorists” have been warning us for decades, China—with its social credit system, mandatory digital ID, CBDCs and omnipresent biometric surveillance state—is the blueprint for what our self-appointed globalist overlords intend to roll out globally, under Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum’s ‘Great Reset’ agenda.

    Countering the WEF

    Davos in the Desert CEO David Wanetick says:
    Globalists think that they know everything and can manage everyone’s life for them on a micro level and I think that people should have liberty and freedom and they should have the right to decide which injections they inject into their bodies. And they should have the right to free speech without being censored and having that censorship dictated by a globalist organizations such as the WHO or the United Nations…..

    Digital ID and Internet Outages

    At the Digital Identity Inquiry in Canberra, I questioned the Australian Banking Association about how Australians who don’t want a digital ID would lead a normal life without one.

    I also asked how internet outages would impact on people’s lives when they rely on a digital identity to access their money.

    Peace is possible but we need to get people who truly desire peace to the negotiating table and leave out the ones who have other agendas.

    There are Palestinian Muslims, Palestinian Christians, Israeli Jews, Israeli Christians who would be able to have amicable discussions and arrive at peaceful solutions.

    Just as there are some, on both sides, who want the war to go on.

    In the West, we tend to regard the political Right-wing to hold Conservative views and align ourselves on that side because they are closer to our values. Yet, this Gaza conflict has turned the interpretations of Right-wing/Conservatives vs Left-wing progressives upside-down.

    Israel’s Emerging Religious Left

    In recent years, religious Jewish communities around the world have turned increasingly toward the right. In Israel, the overwhelmingly right-wing ideology of Religious Zionism is on the rise, and it’s often seen as unusual to be both religious and left-wing. But there’s also a growing movement of observant Jews offering an alternative vision for religious life that centers Jewish values of justice, compassion, and freedom.

    (The above is from a magazine founded in 1946 called Jewish Currents. The website states that it is committed to the rich tradition of thought, activism, and culture of the Jewish left.)

    China counters US point by point at ICJ
    Step Vaessen

    Reporting from The Hague, Netherlands
    China very well listened to what the United States had to say a day earlier, its representative basically countered all the arguments that the US brought forward.

    The US said the UN and the ICJ should stay out of a bilateral issue between Israel and Palestine. According to China, it was definitely a matter for the UN to talk about the self-determination of the Palestinian people.

    And also the argument the US made, Israel’s right to self-defence and that’s why the occupation has to continue. The Chinese representative said Israel is a foreign nation occupying Palestine, so the right to self-defence lies more with the Palestinians than with the Israelis.

    China said it is actually very important to have the advisory opinion coming from the world’s highest court because it will guide any future negotiations.

    If you consider yourself a Conservative and you check out the Con Inc Media sites to get the latest happenings in the world, these are the top two news stories you’ll find:

    1/ The Hamas attack on 7 October 2023
    Israel is the victim. The Hamas massacre in Gaza on 7 October 2023 killed and wounded innocent Jews. Some have been tortured, taken as hostages. Their families are worried and concerned about their well-being, especially as some of the hostages are ill/ elderly or young children.

    All true. This attack should not have happened. Innocent civilians should not be pawns in whatever conflicts exist between two sides.

    But the media want you to believe that it is all about 7 October 2023.
    Nothing happened before that – 75 years – to lead to this point.
    And nothing has happened after that, in Gaza.

    It is just one side that has suffered – Israel.

    2/ The 2024 US Elections
    The primaries have not ended – not the GOP or the Dems. The nominees have not been officially declared. But, as far as Con Inc Media goes, Donald Trump has as good as won the 2024 general election.

    You can read all about the polls – state by state – which show Trump leading Biden by several points. You can read about all the great plans and policies about draining the swamp and eliminating the deep state. And much, much more.

    Of course, those who have worked out the psyops by the media, doing the bidding of their masters, are checking their news from alternate sources.

    And they know that there is more to what is taking place than that being provided by the new era of journalism – not facts but opinion. Not objective reporting but bias.

    This past month there have been reports about some Zionists or Jews (not sure which one) in Australia being dobbed and the government is stepping in with laws to prevent this. Revealing the identity of innocent civilians is wrong. People should be allowed to have the right to their opinions, freedom and living their lives as long as they do not advocate violence or break any valid laws.

    But do we want freedom and privacy for all? Do we really want to work towards peace? Or do we just want a solution that suits one side and is unfair to the other side?

    I came across two of these twitter posts a while ago but did not post them here. I wasn’t sure if they were some kind of hoax or true. Have seen a third one this week so I’ll share them all here.

    A Statistical Trick: Classing the Vaccinated as Unvaccinated

    How do you create a ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated” while also hiding vaccine injuries and deaths? Simple – just class the vaccinated as unvaccinated.

    “When they came to you and told you that this was a ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated’, they misled you and they deceived you. What they did was this: they redefined what being vaccinated was….so you the public said ‘Oh my God! All these unvaccinated people are getting infected and hospitalised, I have to run and get a vaccine’, you didn’t understand that no, those people were literally vaccinated.”

    There’s another possible reason for the timing of Navalny’s death, it coincided with Russia’s capture of Avdiivka (now reverted to Avdeyevka) which was the most heavily fortified city in the Donetsk Oblast. The Ukrainians always pull a stunt of some sort whenever they suffer a significant military defeat to get that defeat out of the newspapers.

    And for this Sunday….

    Today is the Second Sunday of Lent. I had planned to post something else to fit in with this day. But I watched another video this afternoon and I decided to post it instead.

    Two months ago, we celebrated Christmas, yet for many the rubble in Gaza did not matter. In a month it will be Holy Week, and we will be focussed on the crucified Christ, yet unaware of the suffering people in Gaza.

    Last Sunday, the First Sunday of Lent, Revd Dr Munther Isaac, pastor of the Lutheran Christmas Church in Bethlehem had travelled to the UK for the Vigil for Gaza. He delivered a reflection at the Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church in London.

    The address is to world leaders in general, but more specifically to Christian churches and Christians.

    I was trying to pick out a few sentences from the reflection to post here, but it was hard to pick just a few. I found the entire address deeply moving and a sadness and remorse that I have not been able to do more to support and speak up for Gazans trapped in the rubble.

    Munther Isaac asks:

    Is this what the church is doing today?

    Let us be honest with ourselves! I hope you understand why we, as Palestinian Christians, have been crying out, “where is the church?” The question when we face injustice and suffering should not always be “where is God in the midst of suffering?” Many times the question is “where was the church?”

    …I feel the thing we lack the most today is courage. And I hesitate to use this word because the courage needed to speak the truth is nothing to the courage the people of Gaza are showing us every day. We need courage to speak the truth. But we are not speaking many times. We fear the consequences. We fear the backlash!

    The address begins just after the 11-minute mark (timestamped) and concludes at 48.30. A total of 38 minutes.

    Christ Under the Rubble: A Vigil for Gaza

    As we journey towards the cross, may we reflect on the profound meaning of this season. I think of three things:

    – It is time of Repentance.
    – It is a time of fasting, and such a time to reflect on the meaning of true piety.
    – It is a time to reflect on the mystery of suffering and how the road to glory has to go through the Cross.

    So, let me talk about these three things, and link them to what is happening in Gaza today.

    I watched the video first and then read the transcript to absorb the details. The address is being delivered by someone who has a first-person experience of what is taking place and I thought that just reading the speech would not convey the full meaning.
