    Dearer still is Truth
    8TH AUGUST 2022

    How many people have been denied the truth because mainstream media journalists at the BBC, Sky, the Guardian, the Mail, the Telegraph, the FT, the Mirror, the radio stations, the rest of the TV stations and the rest of the newspapers have deliberately, cold bloodedly suppressed the truth, spread the government’s lies and demonised the truth tellers?

    The inevitable Devi Sridhar wrote an article for The Guardian claiming that covid had killed 200,000 people in Britain. With garbage like that masquerading as evidence what hope is there? If she’d written that 200,000,000 people had died of covid in the UK would the Guardian have printed that? I suspect so. It was a much better paper when they just specialised in misprints. Maybe no one at The Guardian has worked out the difference between ‘of’ and ‘with’ – a difference I’ve been screaming about since the start of this fraud. I’d write an article for them correcting the figures but it would be a waste of time. Newspapers are terrified of truths these days. The truth, of course, is that the official figures show that covid killed no more people than an ordinary annual flu – a fact which didn’t surprise me much since I’ve been describing covid-19 as the rebranded flu for two and a half years now.

    Sridhar, by the way, is a woman who merrily used the BBC to tell people there were no notable side effects with the covid jab and that it was 100% safe for children. As far as I know she still hasn’t apologised for that.

    The Guardian has been laughably inept and badly written for decades but it has reached new lows in the last two years. I hope that their financial relationship with Bill Gates is doing well. The Gates Foundation has contaminated universities and the media by throwing around millions of dollars and affecting the independence or perceived independence of the recipients.

    The media is now united in warning us of a new wave of deadly covid, a flu epidemic as well and some monkey pox to add extra terror to the mix. The Daily Mail has apparently reported on a new wave of pandemics coming from microbes popping out of Tibetan glaciers which are melting. One expert has been widely quoted as saying that anyone who feels tired when getting out of bed and who has a sore throat should count themselves as having covid. It seems there is no need any more for those silly tests, so that’s one good thing. If people listen to this then by September there will be at least 50 million people with covid in the UK and the Government will have a good excuse to introduce lockdowns, compulsory vaccinations and death camps for anyone seen not wearing at least three masks and a pair of galoshes.

    How many people have been denied the truth? Millions.

    But how much do they want to hear the truth?

    ‘The truth which makes men free is for the most part the truth which men prefer not to hear,’ wrote Herbert Agar.

    This is the biggest scandal in the history of the world and after two and a half years I am tired, so bloody tired, of the utter garbage being produced and shared and promoted.

    People are popping out of the woodwork to tell us that we must wear masks even though the scientific evidence proves that masks do more harm than good.

    We are told that hospitals are under stress because immunity from the initial vaccine drive is beginning to wane.

    We are told that more people are having heart attacks because of the heat. In the winter it will be because of the cold weather.

    We are told that hospitals are half closed because huge numbers of staff are off work – not because they are sick but because they have tested positive with tests – the PCR test and the lateral flow test – both of which are about as much use as stuffing a cricket ball up someone’s bum to see if their eyes water.

    Vaccine Deaths Outnumber Covid Deaths in U.S. Households,
    Two New Polls Confirm

    Polls of the U.S. public continue to show that up to twice as many Americans have lost a household member to a Covid vaccine injury as have lost one to Covid.

    The pooled results of five surveys of the American public, now totalling over 2,500 people, show that while 4.4% of respondents reported that a member of their household had died from COVID-19, 8.9% said a member had died as a result of Covid vaccination.

    – White man accuses black woman of being pro-racist.

    – White fella living in ivory tower understands the problems and priorities of black fellas better than black fellas actually living in black fella communities.

    – White man is pro-black, pro-women, pro-downtrodden, pro-indigenous and pro-minorities, except if they happen to be Conservatives.

    Global Walk Out.
    How will the Global Walkout work?

    1. A global WALK OUT from the society they’re trying to enslave us into, including an optional convoy to occupy your capital city. The length of the walkout will depend on the momentum built in each country.

    2. We will not announce the walk out dates until we have enough pledges worldwide.

    3. If you can’t participate in the convoy, that’s fine. You can still commit to walk out for as long as you can.

    4. You can choose one or more of these options when you pledge;

    • Walk out of work and have a holiday.
    • Walk your children out of school.
    • Walk away from spending money at corporations that support globalism.
    • Walk away from consuming any mainstream media or streaming channels.
    • Convoy to your capital city on the scheduled dates (yet to be announced).

    No, the previous marches and protests have not been failures. The Cats on this site and others in alternative media are posting evidence that is making not just the unbrainwashed wiser but also slowly educating some of the gullible folk. There are some who are realising the truth.

    Around the world, the brave warriors are fighting on – in the Netherlands, other parts of Europe, Australia, NZ, Canada, the US and elsewhere.

    The wins will come if the plebs will unite and fight together. It won’t happen if we give up, or worse, tear down those who are giving up their time, their careers, their lives to fight the battle.

    Monica, for example, got engaged, last year. She could be spending her time looking at bridal magazines and planning her wedding. Instead she went to prison, to court, has had to fight legal cases. Now she is contacting other freedom fighters around the world to battle on for freedom, for all of us.

    I salute her and all those in the battle for our freedom. Even if we don’t “win” we won’t give up and bend the knee to the despots of this world.

    It’s not “around the world”, it’s limited to western Europe, Scandinavia and the Anglosphere. What do these nations have in common, several things obviously, similar basic ideas about human liberty, rule of law, democratic systems of governance and many other things we share in common but take for granted.

    There is one very important shared element which is never spoken of though, a common ancestry which is obvious through our R1b1a2 Y-DNA. We are the children of the ten tribes of Israel who were expelled by the Assyrians around 2,800 years ago and dispersed to the north-west and the “ends of the world” who are increasingly coming under persecution by our own evil rulers, then into enslavement by foreigners.

    US inflation

    The torrid pace of inflation slowed in July for the first time in months, but prices remain near the highest level in 40 years.

    The Labor Department said Wednesday that the consumer price index, a broad measure of the price for everyday goods including gasoline, groceries and rents, rose 8.5% in July from a year ago, below the 9.1% year-over-year surge recorded in June. Prices were unchanged in the one-month period from June.

    Those figures were both lower than the 8.7% headline figure and 0.2% monthly gain forecast by Refinitiv economists, a welcoming sign for the Federal Reserve as it seeks to cool price gains and tame consumer demand.

    An Irish pub in Melbourne’s CBD fired two staff members after it is alleged they spat in a drink belonging to a neo-Nazi following a heated political debate.

    The Irish Times pub detailed the ugly incident on their Facebook page, which unfolded on August 2 at the Little Collins St venue.

    Pub management allege the staffers spat into a drink belonging to Elwood man Jimeone Roberts, 29, as a “consequence of a discussion with the patron over a political topic”.

    Footage of the aftermath of the incident, obtained by the Herald Sun, shows a male bartender being verbally confronted by the group of men.

    “You started it when you got those tattoos,” the bartender told Mr Roberts.

    “I’d like it if you’d leave.”

    Another man in the party, who went on to call the bartender a “f—-”, defended Roberts’ freedom of choice.

    “That is his personal choice. He can do what he wants,” the man said.

    “At the end of the day. This is f—ing bulls—. You spat in the bloke’s beer. End of discussion.”

    The venue on Tuesday announced two workers had been sacked and issued a public apology.

    “The Irish Times management would like to take this opportunity to apologise to Jimeone Roberts and his friends – Stefanos, Neil Erikson, Thomas Sewell, and Ricky T for the incident that took place on 2nd August 2022,” a statement posted on their Facebook page said.

    “Following the incident, the Irish Times management took immediate disciplinary action by terminating the two employees involved in the event which violated The Irish Times’ workplace code of conduct.

    “The Irish Times management team strongly disapproves of the ex-employee’s unprofessional conduct by spitting into the patron’s drink as a consequence of a discussion with the patron over a political topic.

    “As part of our commitment to provide the highest level of service to our patrons, we will continue to reinforce that all staff must remain respectful towards our patrons at all times to avoid any such future recurrence.”

    Earlier this month, Mr Roberts was hit with a community corrections order after he was caught plastering dozens of anti-Semitic posters across suburban streets in Melbourne.

    Magistrate David Starvaggi described his behaviour as “one of the most disgusting, vile, repugnant acts of anti-Semitism and racial behaviour that I have ever seen.”

    “Your behaviour is tantamount to pure evil and vile hatred and that has got no place in modern Australian society and you should be condemned for that,” Mr Starvaggi said in court.

    The Irish Times responded to community feedback in a secondary post, saying they acted on legal advice when firing the employees.

    “As a small business, still recovering from the impacts of Covid-19, we followed the legal advice in taking disciplinary action for the unprofessional conduct of our staff for spitting in a paying customer’s beer,” The Irish Times management said.

    “We do not want to be in the center (sic) of any political views or topics.

    “As always, we only want what is best for our staff and customers in continuing to serve the community, which this pub has done for over 20+ years.

    “We would appreciate your understanding and support on this matter.”

    Chairman of the Anti-Defamation Commission Dr Dvir Abramovich said neo-Nazi ideology was harmful.

    “I imagine there would be many people applauding these bartenders for their actions,” Dr Abramovich said.

    “I understand the disgust and rage they felt when they realised they are serving hateful individuals.

    “The violent neo-Nazi ideology these men promote led to the Christchurch massacre and is about an Australia without Muslims, Asians, indigenous Australians, members of the LGBTQI community and anyone who does not fit into their warped Aryan worldview.

    “This incident is a reminder that neo-Nazism is alive in our state and should send a chill down every Victorian’s spine since the rhetoric that these hardcore bigots are spewing online, can cross the line into real-world lethal attacks.

    “There are more effective and appropriate ways to fight the evil they represent than spitting into their beers. Refusing to provide them with service is one, walking out in protest is another.”

    The venue and Mr Roberts have been contacted for comment.

    Thinking the Irish Times pub may as well shutter it’s doors now. Not sure the public would want to have a beer in this establishment knowing some of the clientele have those views.
