English Dissident on “Scotland’s Tinpot Despot”: Face Masks = Muzzles…

Peter Hitchens, Journalist

When this madness began, I behaved as if a new and fanatical religion was spreading among us. Be polite and tolerant, I thought. It may be crazy and damaging but in time it will go away.

Now it is clear that a new faith, based on fear of the invisible and quite immune to reason, has all but taken over the country. And it turns out to be one of those faiths that doesn’t have much tolerance for those who don’t share it.

My guess is that about 85 per cent of the population now worship it and will continue to do so. The rest of us are, as each day goes by, a persecuted minority, forced to go along with beliefs we do not hold.

Its evangelists will not leave you and me alone, but constantly seek to force us to join. This is why I make such a fuss about the demand to make us all wear muzzles. This is not about health. 

There is simply not enough evidence to compel us to do so. It is an attempt to force submission on Covid unbelievers.

That is why it spreads, despite the absence of any good case for it. In a creepy development, one of the most powerful scientific papers arguing against it, Why Face Masks Don’t Work: A Revealing Review, last week suddenly vanished from its usual place on the internet – I still have a copy and you may read it here

Scotland’s tinpot despot, Nicola Sturgeon, now demands that muzzles are worn in shops, as well as on public transport, north of the border…

This obsession with telling us how to look, and turning us from normal humans into submissive, mouthless flock animals all decked out in a compulsory uniform is, in my view, part of an unprecedented assault on our personal liberty in general. Stay at home. Stop working. Don’t see your friends or relatives. Submit, submit, submit. Get used to being told what to do.

And we do it…

 I think something has gone wrong deep inside the workings of this country. A fire long smouldering below decks has now burst into the open.

Let me share a letter I received from a reader: ‘I run a small coffee shop and when the state decreed, I reopened for takeaway (I was ‘allowed’ also by the local council to use a small area outside my premises for people to sit down and drink their takeaways). Occasionally, when the weather has been bad or someone with an infirmity hasn’t been able to take their drink away, I have let them sit inside.

‘This morning I was visited by the police and warned. I was informed that two complaints had been made against me for serving drinks inside the premises. All for making someone a cup of tea and being human enough to let them have it inside. Last year my business was burgled and trashed and drug dealing was going on in the park that my business overlooks. And what happened then? Absolutely nothing. This isn’t the kind of country that my grandfather fought to preserve.’    End of letter/extracts from Peter Hitchens’ Daily Mail article…

Comment: 

I’ve been hearing from more and more people who say they will just not wear masks in shops when Friday 10 July comes around.  I intend to fight it with all my might. I’ll carry a marker pen in case I’m forced to do so, and then I’ll write a message on the material for all to read.  I’m still working on the text, so all non-crude and all non-threatening-of-violence suggestions welcome.  Some of us, then, are trying to fight back. 

Yet, when I visited a B & Q store yesterday, I lost count of the number of people, mostly males but also parents and children who were wearing face masks.  Moreover, when my passenger returned with her purchases – two huge bags of compost and a tree, would you believe,  I asked her in amazement why she didn’t ask one of the men in the store to help her out with the trolley – I’ve always found them helpful and I was  only buying the equivalent of a few paper-clips… Reply:  they’re no longer allowed to do that.  The lad who helped place her tree onto the trolley was looking surreptitiously around, because, he said, he wasn’t even supposed to be doing that.  

What’s happening to people?  What’s happening to Scotland? The “social distancing” and the snitching has made us a fearful people, very anti-social, in fact.  And most people, it seems, are prepared to live with this “new normal” (the loss of our civil and religious freedoms, permanently if that’s what the Government decrees).  The question for this discussion, therefore, has to be… are  you?

**********************************************************************************

As a matter of interest…

Peter Hitchens is counter-cultural on other topics, not just “the lockdown”…  If only more public figures/journalists were able to think outside of the mainstream “box”…  Maybe, then, we wouldn’t have to kill babies OR wear face masks…

  1. Well, the polls are showing huge support for the Tinpot Despot
    https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/other/support-for-scottish-independence-rockets-as-voters-back-nicola-sturgeon-s-pandemic-response/ar-BB16lPlb?ocid=msedgdhp

    It’s so difficult to deal with the face masks issue. Most of us are terrified of being faced with the shop calling the police. I am looking forward to reading what others are going to do, but as well as the fear of being interviewed by the police, I just can’t afford to pay fines for every time I go shopping. I feel so cowardly – I’d love to tell them what to do with their mask.

    • I would be worried about those polls except polls are never a true reflection of the population at large, IMHO. Also, if they just asked whether Sturgeon was better than Johnson handling the lockdown by not easing up so soon, the people responding will trot out what they’ve been hearing on TV.

      I want to know if they expect people to pay for these masks because I presume you’d have to bin it after every shop. Would we be allowed to keep the one mask and use it over and over? Are the shops going to fund these masks or do we pay for our own?

      There will be people on benefits and unemployed who can’t afford to keep buying masks, so I can see this developing into a major problem if it drags on.

    • Josephine & Fidelis

      Such has been the erosion of our education system for decades that I’m afraid those polls may well be accurate. People are now driven by their emotions, not by research and much less by objective reason. In effect, it’s a lazy generation that does not want to have to study the facts but instead just believe whatever its told to believe. That’s what Marxist puppeteers do, they programme minds over a long period starting at a young age until they end up with an ignorant and compliant populace. We see the success of the method in Communist China and North Korea.

      As regards the Hitchins article, it’s brilliant as usual. Peter Hitchins is one of the few journalists with a real sense of the evil presently unfolding in our country. Sadly his extremely concise and well documented writings are largely ignored by the programmed masses. It must be very frustrating for him.

      I have just copied the linked scientific article destroying the face mask myth to Nicola Sturgeon’s Twitter feed, as well as to the Twitter feed of Police Scotland. I very much doubt it will change their direction but it will certainly let them know that they are acting illegitimately and against science by enforcing the face mask law post-July 10.

      I have said from the beginning that I will never wear a face mask and I meant what I said. The shop owners may call the police if they wish but I will simply refuse to co-operate with any and all attempts to coerce me into compliance with illegitimate legislation that undermines both science and my civil liberties.

    • Josephine,

      That is a very deceptive article. Even the headline conflates support for Scottish independence with Sturgeon’s pandemic response. And it turns out that Sturgeon’s “approval rating” (notice it doesn’t specify what she is being approved for) is three times that of Boris Johnson. Well, what does that mean? What are the actual numbers? The only number that is quoted is 54% – that is, 54% of Scots would vote yes for independence.

      As for Sturgeon’s actual approval number, nowhere to be found. I suppose one would have to look up Boris’ approval number to figure it out, but I’d bet a carton of face masks that Boris’ approval number is just as meaningless.

      So: nothing but deception from A to Z. Meanwhile, the last paragraph is very interesting:

      “The Scottish Conservatives will continue to fight the case for the United Kingdom, and hold Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP to account for their continued failings when it comes to combating the Coronavirus in Scotland.”

      I wonder how the Conservatives define “continued failings”? Not enough lockdown? Too much lockdown? Something else?

  2. It seems clear that the vast majority of the populace has succumbed to the fear-mongering 24/7 drumbeat. But it also seems clear that the world’s “leaders” are following orders that came with a script. The question is, who issued the script? Who is pulling the strings?

    I don’t have the answer to that, but it reminds me of this famous Woodrow Wilson quote:

    “Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”

  3. To refresh memories, a reader emailed recently about his experience regarding wearing face-masks on public transport – I posted his report on a previous thread; here it is again for ease of reference…

    EMAIL FROM READER…

    Paid a visit to the blog and saw your comment on face masks. Drivers aren’t permitted to question, but last Friday [my son] and I had a terrible experience. We boarded the bus and told the driver we were exempt and the driver turned off the engine and said we needed a doctor’s letter. I told him that was rubbish and he phoned the police. Seven officers turned up! The police told us we either had to wear a mask or get off the bus. We took the mask, the police left and the bus set off, but we didn’t wear the masks home. I complained to the police and bus company and got an apology from both. Apparently the officers and driver are being disciplined. So, you might wish to warn people on the blog about this kind of behaviour. Ends.

    The reader has now had a response from the Scottish Government and has given permission for me to quote from it – below, some extracts…

    REPLY FROM SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT…

    “Thank you for your enquiry regarding face covering for COVID-19.

    I understand the concerns you have raised in your correspondence. I have details (sic) below information regarding face covering including exemptions that apply.

    On Thursday 2 July, The First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon announced that face coverings are compulsory for staff and customers when in a shop or other retail outlet, which includes salons such as hair dressers and indoor shopping centres as well as on public transport.

    Face coverings are mandatory on the following public transport services :

    Train services including the Glasgow subway
    Bus services including Edinburgh trams
    Taxi and private hire vehicles
    Bus stations, railway stations and airports
    Ferry services (unless the ferry is open to the elements and physical distancing can be achieved,
    or the vessel is large enough that physical distancing can be achieved).
    Airline services

    Some people are not required to wear a face covering…

    I can confirm that [your condition] is defined as a medical condition that would exempt you from wearing a face covering.

    Evidence for the use of face coverings is limited. Therefore, you must not use them as alternatives to physical distancing, hand washing and respiratory hygiene.

    The decision to make face coverings mandatory in some settings was based on the latest medical and scientific evidence provided by SAGE and our CMO advisory group.

    The Scottish Government are not currently providing face coverings to the general public. By face coverings we do not mean a surgical or other medical grade mask but a covering of the mouth and nose that is made of cloth or other textiles and through which you can breathe, for example a scarf or religious head covering that covers the mouth and nose. You may also use, if you prefer, a face visor but it must cover your nose and mouth completely…

    The Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012 stipulates that the Chief Constable of Police Scotland is responsible for the policing of Scotland, and is accountable to the Scottish Police Authority for this, rather than to Scottish Ministers directly. These arrangements are in place to ensure public confidence that the police act independently, free from unwarranted Ministerial interference. I hope you will understand it would therefore be inappropriate for the Scottish Government to comment on the police handling of any individual case.

    Your concerns should be brought directly to the attention of Police Scotland for investigation and so any lessons can be learnt. This can be done in writing by writing to: Professional Standards Department, PO Box 2460, Police Scotland, Dalmarnock, Glasgow, G40 9BA. Alternatively, you could ask a solicitor, your MSP or your local councillor to write to Police Scotland your behalf. Other ways to make a formal complaint to Police Scotland are by calling the police non-emergency number 101, by filling out the online complaint form on the Police Scotland website: https://www.scotland.police.uk/about-us/police-scotland/complaints-about-the-police/how-to-make-a-complaint/ or by visiting a police station.

    If, once you have received a response from Police Scotland you remain dissatisfied, it will be open for you to refer the matter to the Police Investigations and Review Commissioner (PIRC) who has responsibility to provide independent scrutiny of the way the police respond to complaints from the public. You can contact the PIRC either via their website (www.pirc.scotland.gov.uk), by telephone: 01698 542900, email: enquiries@pirc.gsi.gov.uk or by writing to PIRC, Hamilton House, Hamilton Business Park, Caird Park, Hamilton, ML3 0QA. PIRC will ask you to complete a form, giving details of your complaint and about why you are unhappy with the way the police handled it. It is normally necessary to make any application to PIRC within 3 months of receiving Police Scotland’s final response to your complaint…

    You can keep up to date with the latest advice by visiting the NHS Inform and Scottish Government Website.

    I hope this information is helpful.

    Yours sincerely

    Ends.

    I couldn’t sense any ‘shock-horror, let me apologise, Nicola would be appalled’…. I didn’t see the reader’s letter but I presume he explained the situation as reported above- which demands an apology. As I’ve said before, anyone who thinks the Scottish Government (or any other Government) gives a toss about our well-being, actually “cares” for us, needs to see someone and I mean someone wearing a white coat who arrives in a white van with security guards in attendance 😀

    Don’t let the smiley face fool you – I’m NOT kidding 😀 (Oops!)

    • Editor,

      The complete and utter absurdity – not to mention the immorality and illegality – of mandatory face masks is openly admitted by this letter:

      “Evidence for the use of face coverings is limited. Therefore, you must not use them as alternatives to physical distancing, hand washing and respiratory hygiene.”

      [BUT WAIT! THE EVIDENCE MAY BE LIMITED, BUT IT’S THE LATEST MEDICAL AND SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE! WELL THEN, THAT SETTLES IT!]

      “The decision to make face coverings mandatory in some settings was based on the latest medical and scientific evidence provided by SAGE and our CMO advisory group.”

      Actually, what the evidence indicates is massive fraud and deception in order to achieve police state conditions.

      • RCA Victor,

        I agree, totally. The masks are a total scam.

        I notice this, from the Government response to the reader:

        The Scottish Government are not currently providing face coverings to the general public.

        So, we have to buy them ourselves (or wear a scarf?)

        They have some nerve, they really do. I won’t be paying a penny for any mask, and I don’t wear scarves!

        • Laura,

          Just to inject a little humor into this nightmare, I think those who are psychologically awake, if accosted by police or a snitch, should just claim that they are wearing an invisible face mask, and then imply that there is something wrong with the interrogator if they can’t see it. You could even pretend to pull it down so you can talk to them!

          Hopefully the interrogator will conclude that you are simply crackers, and leave you alone…

          • RCA Victor,

            Here’s the next best thing to an invisible mask (which I think is a great idea – I may try it myself and look askance when the shop-workers say they can’t see my mask, and I reply, well of course you can’t, silly, it’s invisible!)

            Or maybe try this…

      • Your last little paragraph says it all, and, I sure do agree with you. Based on what I’ve read and how I personally feel about the masks. Masks are an insult to human dignity. We look like dogs. Just need a spiked collar. The deep staters in the offices of the New World Order wish us to learn to submit. This is a test to see how far they can go. Of course, my thoughts make me a conspiracy theorist. But this is just two words they have come up with to apply to anyone who is trying to figure out a puzzle. They make up words which stick … they are so adept at propaganda … and “making a mess” as Pope Francis urges the youth to do. Too bad for us that even the Pope is in on it. God help us.

        • Mary Anne,

          “Masks are an insult to human dignity. We look like dogs. Just need a spiked collar. “

          Don’t go giving them ideas! Spiked collars will be all the rage in no time, if they get half a chance!

      • Yes, I found those two paragraphs in the letter quite remarkable too.

        “Evidence for the use of face coverings is limited.” What a statement to make when mandating that hundreds of thousands of otherwise healthy people should wear them!

        I would also point out that SAGE is the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) and is a *UK* government advisory body, yet England does not require face masks in shops. Scotland does have its own CMO (Chief Medical Officer) Dr Gregor Smith (who replaced the lockdown-ignoring Dr Catherine Calderwood). Presumably Dr Smith and the Scottish Government were much more enthusiastic about face masks.

        The Bishops Conference of Scotland are also very keen on them. Their “COVID-19 Infection Control Advice” had this to say:

        “Wearing of face coverings has been slightly controversial because Ministers in England have been dismissive of their effectiveness. In Scotland face coverings are recommended for wearing in public spaces. The Scottish approach is correct. Face coverings which are not of the close-fitting kind and which do not have filters are not particularly effective in preventing the wearer becoming infected. The standard surgical face mask and the home-made cloth face coverings are, however, effective in preventing an infected person from spreading the virus. Face coverings should be worn in public to prevent the asymptomatic person spreading the disease. All those attending Mass should wear face coverings. Not only would face covering wearing reduce the risk of infecting others, it would also reduce the contamination of the environment.” https://www.bcos.org.uk/Portals/0/Documents/COVID-19%20Infection%20Control%20Advice%20050620.pdf

        The “New Normal”.

        The July edition of the Glasgow Archdiocese’s Flourish has a picture – I don’t know what epithet to use – of the Archbishop opening the doors of (presumably) the Cathedral with a mask on:

        http://www.rcag.org.uk/index.php/item/950-july-flourish

        • James,

          I saw Archbishop Tartaglia looking ridiculous in his mask when he was filmed for the TV news, opening the doors of the cathedral. I did not, however, know that the Bishops of Scotland had mandated masks for wearing to Mass – more concerned about “the environment” than with paying due tribute to God by showing our trust in His Divine Providence. Talk about useful idiots.

          What will happen to Catholics who, in good conscience (for, among other reasons, knowing that face masks can make us sick, can be dangerous to ourselves) won’t wear one? Will those Catholics actually be refused admittance to Mass? And I include all face-coverings in that question.

          The Bishops were not slow to ignore and dismiss the Catholic tradition of women wearing head coverings to Mass – yet they’ll enforce this crackpot novelty, by command of the Marxist Government of Scotland?

          I wouldn’t be surprised if a spike in cases of the Wuhan virus were to result in Catholics attending Mass and wearing face masks – I really wouldn’t.

          God, (St Paul teaches) will not be mocked.

        • James,

          I’m just stunned at the Bishops statement which you’ve linked.

          Apart from the disgraceful decision to make people wear face masks at Mass, I thought this was very interesting:

          “At Communion, arrangements should permit separation between those going to and those coming back from Communion. This will be a problem for churches with only a central aisle. In this case, a feasible arrangement would be individuals going one at a time to communion.

          What about the reason for using Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion to cut short the wait time in the queue for Communion? Suddenly, the wait time doesn’t matter, because it’s better to go up one at a time, than go against the stupid social distancing rule – even though, like face coverings, there’s no reason to socially distance. Here’s a short TV interview in America about socially distancing (although the interviewer clearly doesn’t like the answers she’s getting, LOL!)

        • James,

          Thank you for pointing out even more absurdity:

          “Face coverings should be worn in public to prevent the asymptomatic person spreading the disease.”

          So let’s see, he mused: if one has no symptoms, how does one know that one has a disease?

          Oh, of course, I forgot: the COVID-19 tests, which produce 80% false positives and do not test for an actual disease, can reveal you as infected even though you have no symptoms! Silly me.

          I wonder if there is a test for idiocy and fraud? Surely this Tower of Faux-Science Babel must soon collapse under the weight of its own lies.

          • RCAVictor

            Excellently put! But it shows the level of idiocy in society that most people can’t work that out for themselves, which is why they’re being taken for a ride by the sinister forces. We live in a world gone completely mad!

            • Athanasius,

              I hope and pray that this blog helps people to start realizing that 2 + 2 doesn’t equal 5!

              • RCA Victor,

                It’s very difficult to find anyone who questions the media mantra. I was reading an online news report just a few minutes ago, about the pressure on Boris Johnson to mandate face masks for the English population and reading the comments underneath was frightening – to put it mildly. The same old, same old conformity in quite a lot of comments and then suddenly someone who could think for himself took a different view. Anyway, he was then insulted and derided until he returned to the fray with this. Since he speaks for me, I’ll finish here, for now…

                This is absolute nonsense, one minute they tell us masks are ineffective, the next minute they say they are effective.

                I’ll never wear a mask no matter what ‘law’ or ‘rule’ they put in place. It’s my body and I will not be told what to wear on it. It is a dehumanising, illogical requirement that does harm to the wearer and actually creates an environment which will harbour and promote the reproduction of viruses.

                The death rate from this virus is fractionally worse than seasonal flu and behaves much the same, it targets the vulnerable ONLY.

                The overreaction is insane. sensible advice would be to tell elderly and vulnerable people to take precautions and everyone else, be vigilant with hygiene, but get on with work, life and living.

                Before anyone berates me I can back up everything with official statistics which are readily available for anyone who bothers to take 5 minutes to research. In March PHE [Public Health England] downgraded it to ‘low mortality’ and no longer considered a High Consequence Infection Disease. The CFR is 0.9%- SARS 2004 was 10% MERS 2012 was 34% and Ebola 2013 was 40% Flu is 0.2%. None of these required a lockdown or such draconian measures as we are seeing with C19. The majority of deaths are people with comorbidities (Cardiovascular disease) who are over 80 years old – as a snapshot NHS England reports approximately 28,000 deaths in England, of which over 26,000 had pre-existing health conditions, 50% of which were over 65 years old. We need some perspective here!!

                • Editor,

                  That is an excellent and remarkably calm comment. Now all this person needs to do is to find out, if he can, how many of those “28,000 English deaths” are actually due to C-19, and how many are merely because C-19 was “present.” I’d wager the actual deaths, minus the fraudulent death counts, are in the hundreds, not the thousands.

                  You should post the link to this discussion on that news report….

                  • RCA Victor,

                    I used to be automatically logged into those MSN reports, but I’ve noticed recently that I’d need to start over, and today just didn’t have the time. After reading your command which is always my wish, I went off to place a link to this thread only to find that I can’t find the report. This keeps happening to me – usually after I post a few comments and return later to see if anyone has responded, I can’t find the reports, so I don’t know what is going on there.

                    Still, he did get some support from a couple of others, which serves to prove that most people are followers. Once somebody challenges the PC line taken by the majority, someone / a few others will follow.

                    It’s called the Human Condition…

                    • Editor,

                      I was going to suggest another tactic, but after consulting the Archdiocese of Glasgow website, that’s not going to work.

                      My idea was to email a few key parishes in every diocese in Scotland with the link to our discussions, in order to get around the clueless hierarchy.

                      In America, most every parish its own website with email links to multiple committees, councils, apostolates, etc. Is that not true on your side of the pond? The parish list on your Archdiocese website does not include links to parishes, it just lists them for each Deanery.

                    • RCA Victor,

                      Most parishes in Scotland are about as lively as a Senior Citizens’ tea-dance. There won’t be any links to “multiple apostolates” because there aren’t any, although I’d imagine they all have their more-than-fair-share of committees.

                      In any case, there’s really no point in emailing anybody these days, whether within or without the diocesan structures. If there’s one thing that clergy share these days, broadly speaking, whether to the left or to the right, it’s a lack of basic courtesy. I talk to myself enough as it is, I don’t want to be forever writing to myself as well 😀

  4. Well today our parish church opened for Mass. we were asked to arrive 15 minutes beforehand to allow time for the wardens to direct us to our places on a first come first served basis. In fact a grand total of 11 people turned up (8 at the earlier Mass). Not exactly a stampede.
    However at the start of Mass our priest read us a list of the “rules”. Face masks were required. We had decided to submit to that as a less important point than missing Mass. then he announced that Holy Communion would be given at the end of Mass after which we had to leave at once. No time for thanksgiving then? Then the bombshell: communion would only be given in the hand.
    So I spent Mass in a state of some distress, arguing with myself that no Communion was better than one in the hand. After months of denial it was hard. So at the end I just presented myself for a blessing and left feeling wretched. The Portsmouth diocese has decreed that if people prefer to receive on the tongue, they may, but should wait til the end. There was no possible scientific reason for refusing communion on the tongue. If the priest was concerned about potential contamination of his fingers he could have simply moved to the hand sanitiser beside him. It is all just dreadful. My husband thinks I was completely wrong and it was more important to receive Our Lord. So, what do you all think?

    • Elizabeth,

      You are definitely not wrong on this. Not remotely.

      The Church requires us to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days – not to receive Holy Communion. This is what has happened with the new Mass, the use of the term “Eucharist” to mean Mass, where we previously used the word only to mean Holy Communion, has led people to think that receiving Communion is imperative and if they don’t receive, they think their attendance at Mass is somehow deficient.

      The following short clip is Bishop Athanasius Schneider answering a woman in the audience on this subject. I hope you find it helpful…

    • Elizabeth

      I have no hesitation in declaring that your diocese is serving Satan and the bishop and priests of that diocese are in very grave danger of Hell. Not only are they at the service of evil government suppression of religious freedom, they are forcing souls to act contrary to conscience by administering Holy Communion only in the hand.

      If I were you I would not return to any such Mass and advise urgent prayers for the bishop and priests of that diocese, now so perilously in danger of eternal damnation.

    • Elizabeth,

      Bishop Schneider omits a very important fact, which as you will see, Father Gruner addresses: Communion on the tongue is still the universal law of the Church. Communion in the hand is an indult granting Communion in the hand under 7 conditions: 5 rules and 2 principles. These conditions have never, states Father Gruner been met in their totality, and therefore any instance of Communion in the hand which fails to meet them is illicit.

      This is Part I of 2:

      • Elizabeth,

        Sorry, for some reason YouTube posted the URL to the very first video in the “Your Questions Answered” series by Father Gruner and John Vennari, RIP, instead of the video I posted.

        The 2 videos on Communion in the hand are #55 and #56. If you go here and scroll down to those videos in the right column, you will find the information I posted above:

  5. I think the push on masks is simply to scare and herd us ‘sheep’ into accepting the ‘covid apps’ plus the ‘brown shirt covid tracers.’ Once these are up and running they have control.

    At this moment I wouldn’t be surprised that devices are being prepared that you can scan your ‘covid app’ onto, that will let you have access to the building without an alarm going off. The ‘app’ will deem you ‘safe to the general public’. These devices will be installed at the entrances to shops, GP surgeries, hospitals and public transport. Once scanned you will have access to all these facilities without wearing a mask. Obviously they have to iron out problems such as elderly people who are not savvy with such technology and other issues that the ‘covid apps’ will bring.

    My guess is that Boris will let the country believe that a second national lockdown is inevitable, however if everyone cooperates with getting the ‘app’ this second lockdown will not be necessary.

  6. On MSN today – “The World Health Organisation has warned that Britain can expect “big outbreaks” of coronavirus within weeks, if people continue to flout social distancing rules, as was seen during England’s so-called Super Saturday weekend.”

    This is preparing us for new lockdown. This is not going to end. I just hope Peter Hitchens continues to speak out – he’s the lone voice in the wilderness.

    • Lily,

      This proves that preventing a second term for Trump is just one of many items on the NWO to-do list, and maybe not even at the top of the list. At or near the top, I suspect, are such things as:

      -Demoralize the public through fear and intimidation, based on complete irrationality;
      -Prepare them to accept outrageous police state “laws” – including “Green New Deal” garbage – which under normal conditions they would rebel against;
      -Exponentially increase the power and scope of the surveillance state;
      -Accelerate the move toward a cashless economy (which allows more surveillance and punishment)

      And of course, the ever-popular

      -Achieve universal vaccination to make more billions for the ghoul Bill Gates, and reduce the population thereby.

      (Have you ever watched Bill Gates while he is on camera? He seems to be possessed: jerky body movements, excessive hand movements that have no connection to what he is saying, weird slouching sitting postures, etc.)

      It is growing clearer by the day that Satan knows he is running out of time. There is no longer any attempt to hide or disguise these nefarious, sinister schemes and suppression of civil liberties. Everything is quite open, and the mark of the beast on all these political leaders (and Church hierarchy) is ever more exposed.

      • RCA Victor,

        That’s what I believe – they are absolutely determined to get Trump out and it isn’t looking like they’re going to succeed. I did think the looting and rioting would see him off, but I now think it was a good strategy to leave the local politicians to act against the rioters in the democratic towns etc. and then clamp down with the threat of a ten year prison sentence minimum when they showed no signs of acting. That was a brainwave. It also shows that the Democrats must think the American people are stupid, that they wouldn’t realise it was the Dems responsible for allowing the destruction. I don’t think Trump will have any problem getting back into office and I think it’ll be likely a landslide.

        About Bill Gates – all of the videos I’ve found about him are far too long – I haven’t watched any of them right through.

      • RCA Victor,

        Not sure of the entire list, but this is definitely bang on the button…

        “It is growing clearer by the day that Satan knows he is running out of time.”

        When I say “not sure”, I mean I definitely agree… 😀

        Work that one out!

      • RCA Victor,

        I think you’re right about the possibility of the Gates being possessed or oppressed.

        Take a look at this Twitter entry. No normal or sane person behaves like this imho. It’s so bizarre to behold!

        Also, apostate Catholic Comrade Dan Andrews Premier of Victoria has just placed the whole of Melbourne in lockdown for 6 weeks. I pity the poor people there.

        • MaryW52,

          That facial expression is (or was) known as the “insider’s smirk.” You’ll find it frequently on all these NWO leg-men (aka minions of Satan), like Henry Kissinger, George HW Bush, Soros, David Rockefeller – essentially, any member of the Council on Foreign Relations or Bilderberg who speaks to a camera.

          And thank God for “Amazing Polly”!

    • Lily,

      I saw that too – it’s obvious that the Chine / WHO (same thing) are panicking now in case we get our freedoms back, not that I think we will do.

      • Josephine,

        At least today’s news has included a report amounting to “second thoughts” about allowing China to be involved in UK technology. Deo gratias.

    • RCAVictor

      Thanks for the link, I read the article and it intrigued me. Still not sure about this Q figure, though.

      • Athanasius,

        I’m not either, and I don’t really have time to dig into all the puzzles. But I thought it was very significant that Gen. Flynn quoted him – as the former National Security Adviser to Pres. Trump (who also quotes Q), you can’t get much higher security clearance than that!

      • Franscescomarta,

        That article about Trump is very unsettling, I admit.

        I can’t help thinking, though, that why would he go to all this bother, make himself so unpopular, if he shares the globalist agenda with the Dems? It doesn’t make sense.

        Mind you, not a lot makes sense these days, LOL!

        • Lily

          Don’t get me wrong, I would rather Trump than Biden, but lately I have been questioning Trump and the things unfolding on ‘his watch,’ I’m not the only one who is starting to doubt.

      • Francescomarta

        I sincerely believe that Trump is unwittingly co-operating with the Globalists. They have convinced him that there’s a deadly virus out there that requires lockdown in certain places and a quick development of a vaccine courtesy of Bill Gates. I’m sure he suspects the crisis to be overblown, which is an understatement, but if he moves to stop it the Democrats and media will join forces to have him impeached for endangering millions of American lives. He really is in between a rock and a hard place on this.

        • Ahtanasius

          He’s riding a Tiger, I know. This virus has arrived at a very convenient time for the Democrats.

      • Francsecomarta,

        I agree with Mr. Baldwin that the C-19 pandemic is a complete fraud, but I am unable to find any information stating that forced vaccination is part of “Operation Warp Speed.” Can you supply that information?

        As for Mr. Baldwin’s article on USMCA, there seems to be a lot of sloppy thinking throughout, not to mention several gratuitous remarks such as Trump is “extraordinarily ignorant” of the US Constitution. The presence of gratuitous remarks indicates a lack of substance disguised by a preponderance of rhetoric.

        If there is cognitive dissonance between USMCA and the border wall with Mexico, that is entirely possible, but Trump has done a lot more than “started to build” the wall – he has repeatedly fought Democrat-initiated court injunctions preventing him from doing so, and overcome them. Also, where is the evidence that USMCA calls for “open borders”?

        (I looked up current progress on the border wall: as of late June, 222 miles have been completed, with 516+ remaining. Moreover, “An additional 339 miles is under construction, and 183 miles in pre-construction.” (339+183 = 522) (see Fox News and/or a site called TrumpWall.construction). “Started”??

        Also, after some lengthy browsing trying to understand USMCA, I found an article from the “National Hog Farmer” website which indicates that pork farmers are quite happy with this Treaty, whereas they were not at all happy with NAFTA:

        https://www.nationalhogfarmer.com/legislative/usmca-trade-agreement-goes-effect-today

        All that said, I’m not ruling anything out regarding Trump or anyone else, but I’d have to see a lot more evidence that we are being played by him before II believe it. If he really is just another NWO pawn in disguise, for example, then why are all the organs of the NWO expending all their energies in attacking and smearing him 24/7/365? And that includes our current Pope, btw. Is all this Trump Derangement Syndrome just designed to conceal his true loyalties?

        • RCA Victor / Francescomarta,

          If he really is just another NWO pawn in disguise, for example, then why are all the organs of the NWO expending all their energies in attacking and smearing him 24/7/365?

          Exactly my first thought. Doesn’t make sense.

          • Editor / RCA Victor

            If Pope Francis and (in my opinion) Pope Francis’s mentor Geoffrey Sachs, is against Trump, then I should give Trump the benefit of the doubt!

        • RCA Victor

          Yes I would agree with your arguments and I have looked to see if Trump has said that vaccines will be mandatory. I found a press conference where he was asked this and he said if someone did not want the vaccine, they didn’t have to have it. The above article could be ‘fake news’ as Trump would say.!

          • Francescomarta,

            One thing I forgot to mention about that Chuck Baldwin website is that he appears to be a Protestant fundamentalist. In my experience, that variety of Protestantism is prone to zealous belief in various misinterpretations of the Apocalypse, e.g. the “rapture,” etc., and their sloppy thinking in that realm leads to sloppy thinking elsewhere, particularly in jumping to conclusions that are unwarranted.

            I came across this tendency recently on another subject, when one of my sons sent me a video of one of these Protestants (ex-military guy) expounding on “pole shift,” sudden climate change, and the resultant expected massive flooding of both coasts of the USA.

            I had to spend about two hours closely analyzing this for my son’s benefit, and uncovered about 15+ inconsistencies in his argument, which he repeatedly attempted to bolster with anecdotes of his relationships with various American military types.

            My point being, watch out for fundamentalist Protestant predictions!

  7. Although this is not about wearing masks, I thought it was interesting that even the Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan is now warning people not to have the Vaccine from Bill Gates. Click on link below, then scan a third way down for the video clip of Farrakhan’s warning to everyone!

    I hope the people of the UK wise up soon!!

    https://www.newswars.com/dont-let-them-vaccinate-you-farrakhan-warns-africans-that-dr-fauci-bill-gates-trying-to-kill-them/

    • Francescomarta,

      Thanks for that video – very interesting. It’s noticeable how often people (who probably don’t know about the Fatima prophecies) remark about the diabolical disorientation – saying “everything is upside down…”

      How long, though, before we see some very public fightback? Maybe at supermarkets and other shops, as some of us refuse to comply with the masks.

      Someone rang me earlier to say that the same little slips which are published on the First Bus website for use on public transport, can also be used at the shops, exempting the bearer from wearing a face mask. However, there’s no mention of them on the Government site. If anyone can thrown any light on this, please do.

      I know we can point to the exemption “because wearing the mask would cause me undue distress” and I did think of that… However, the more I think of it, the more I think I would prefer to refuse on the grounds that it is taking away my civil liberty.

      So, allow me to say here and now, that it was nice knowing you all…. 😀

      • Editor

        Vernon Coleman speaks a lot of sense, as I’m sure we all agree, but you raise a very interesting point in observing that well-read intellectuals like him, while recognising that society has been turned upside down, don’t know anything about Fatima.

        Upon a cursory glance at his website I was extremely disappointed to learn that he has been openly Transvestite since 1995. He claims that he is not remotely homosexual and that he does not cross dress for sexual reasons, just that he likes the feel of wearing women’s clothes.

        I also notice that he’s vegetarian and has been a bit of an animal rights campaigner for decades, mostly against vivisection. This all suggests a man who, while extremely clever, doesn’t have that supernatural widom that comes from the grace of God. I can find no reference anywhere, even in his videos, that he believes in God. That’s very sad since he obviously has a sharp and investigative mind together with the guts to stand up for what he believes in.

        • Athanasius,

          I, too, was very disappointed on visiting Vernon Coleman’s website, and it’s comical that he prefers to wear women’s clothes, while dressing in trousers! I notice his multi-coloured blouse in the video above, but men, today, wear brightly coloured shirts so it all seems a bit pointless. It’s ironic that he doesn’t recognise his own fetish (for want of a better word) as being evidence of the fact that – as he admits himself – “everything is upside down” these days.

          As you say, given his investigative skills, it’s a wonder he hasn’t uncovered the Fatima prophecies yet. Or would dismiss them anyway, given his apparent lack of belief in God.

          • Editor

            Good point about his not noticing that cross dressing is yet another symptom of an upside down world. You’d think he would be on to that one.

      • Editor

        I don’t know how long it will be before some sort of public fightback. Everything seems to be censored by the government and the army as Dr Coleman alluded to. For example there are reports coming from the UK by prominent physicians (to the author IN LINK BELOW) which suggests that doctors and epidemiologists in the UK are being threatened. They risk being fired by the National Health authorities if they speak out and reveal the falsehoods underlying the data as well as government statements.

        https://www.globalresearch.ca/the-h1n1-swine-flu-pandemic-manipulating-the-data-to-justify-a-worldwide-public-health-emergency/14901

          • Editor,

            Sturgeon’s personality defects aside, it really is disheartening to see that the USA is not the only country where the public square has been reduced to “he said/she said,” instead of anything of substance. That’s one of the few things I don’t like about Trump – his Twitter habits.

            I can’t help but speculate what would have happened if FDR (an NWO prop, btw) had, for example, announced on Twitter, instead of on the radio, that we had declared war on Japan after Pearl Harbor. I’m sure his tweet would have been immediately swarmed by leftist bots screaming “Imperialist aggression!”

            On the other hand, there might have been a handful of tweets pointing out that Pearl Harbor was not a surprise attack – to the top brass in Washington, at any rate, who kept Pearl’s commander, Admiral Kimmel, in the dark so as not to prepare for an attack.

            At any rate, I hope a worthy opponent to Sturgeon appears for your next election…

            • RCA Victor,

              An opponent to Sturgeon – worthy or not – is highly unlikely. For some reason which I just cannot fathom, she is idolized by too many voters.

              I remember talking to one elderly lady during the Brexit campaign who said she completely agreed with me, and isn’t that what Nicola says as well? As soon as I said, well, no, actually Nicola doesn’t think we should leave the EU, and if Scotland gains independence, she has promised to take us back into the EU, the lady said, without a second’s hesitation “Oh, well I’ll go with Nicola…” A total about turn.

              It’s incredible. I know it’s not new, you can guess what I’m about to say… if Nicola told the majority of Scots to jump, the only question would be…. “how high?”

              • Editor,

                Maybe you need a set of beads with the letters

                WWND?

                (What would Nicola do?)

                I just found this comment on a site called Quora, responding to the question “What do Scottish people think of Nicola Sturgeon?”

                Here is comment #3 of 3:

                “The majority do not want her or the SNP in Holyrood their rallies draw 2–3000 maximum. They have been using public funds for internal SNP disputes, mishandled shipbuilding contracts and building projects for the NHS. The finance minister had to resign from his position when he was caught grooming a boy on the net. He has no shame because he remains an MP collecting his salary. There’s the Salmond v SNP case that has Salmond in front by winning the first 2 rounds at a cost of £2m to the taxpayers so far. Then there’s the Sturgeon v Cherry wrangling that will cost the taxpayers more money when the Pooh hits the fan. They have in Blackford the Parliamentary leader the most objectionable caricature of a human being on the planet. Then there’s Govanhill in Glasgow the biggest Roma suburb in the UK just happens to be Sturgeon’s constituency. We’re now descending into the 3rd world with closed eyes.”

                Comment #1, however, disagrees…

                https://www.quora.com/What-do-Scottish-people-think-of-Nicola-Sturgeon?share=1

                • RCA Victor,

                  That’s very interesting – I paid a visit to the link and read the first comment which, I think, is more typical. “So, she makes mistakes, all governments do…” blah blah.

                  Checking out your link below, she’s made one mistake too many in the introduction of face masks – or that would be the case, but for the sound-asleep population of Scotland.

                  Then again, there’s a pub in Fife where it seems they’re banning SNP voters when they reopen on the 15th…
                  https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/politics/scots-pub-blasted-saying-wont-22320719

                  Since few, if any, are likely to present themselves wearing “I vote SNP” badges, I assume that tweet was tongue in cheek, but interesting, none-the-less.

  8. I have a question about the Covid test. – I hope it is still relative in someway to this topic. Someone recently told me that the Covid test (the thing that goes quite far up the nose) is quite harmful to the person getting it. I was told they take a scaping away from the membrane which is not good for your. Stating that the purpose of the membrane stops metals entering the body which can be harmful. So the Covid tests removes some of that protection. I am truly ignorant of the body and its mechanics but if anyone can enlighten me on the safety of his test – I would be grateful since my son has to get a Covid test this Monday before is surgery. I wonder if the Consultant Surgeon and nurses involved have to have this test. – I’m so fed up with this nonsense. I don’t have much faith anymore in medical staff and nurses which is so sad because I was brought up to trust and respect them.

    • Catherine,

      Apart from Elizabeth – who is a nurse – I’m not sure any of us here could answer that, so in case Elizabeth has gone AWOL, I decided to email Dr Malcolm Kendrick – I copied your post over by email, so I hope he will reply soon and I can publish his reply here.

      For your information, his blog address is https://drmalcolmkendrick.org/

      He is a Scots doctor, living and working in England.

    • Catherine,

      I meant to post the reply about your question which I received from Dr Malcolm Kendrick – he replied very quickly and was reassuring:

      “As far as I am aware, the swab does not cause any significant harm.”

    • LaSalette,

      Thank you very much for this. I’d been meaning to write to both my MSP and MP about my planned rebellion, so your link has prompted me to write, on the very day this outrageous law comes into effect. I have just emailed both politicians as follows – I hope others will follow suit…

      MY EMAIL TO MEMBER OF SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT / WESTMINSTER MP

      Dear [MSP] / [MP],

      I will not be complying with the rule, which takes effect today, enforcing the wearing of face-coverings on buses and in shops. I will not wear any kind of face-covering, because I refuse to hand over one of the few civil liberties left to us. Nor will I pay any fine.

      As well as the infringement on my personal freedom – compelling me to wear something that I do not wish to wear – it is an outrageous attack on my health; we are told that wearing a face-covering won’t prevent the wearer from becoming infected but may save others. I’ve never heard of an medic compelling patients to risk their own health for the sake of possibly preventing others from becoming ill ! The wearer of face-masks, in fact, can become very ill – these mask can be very dangerous. I quote from an American website:

      “…there is substantial evidence showing that masks are harmful and a lack of evidence showing they are effective in preventing the spread of coronavirus. Studies show that wearing a face covering reduces blood and tissue oxygenation — which can be deadly — while increasing carbon dioxide levels. Mask-wearing can also increase the risk of infection and the spread of viral illness, hinder detoxification that occurs via exhalation, impair the immune system and cause many other ailments, both physical and emotional. Moreover, some masks have been found to contain known carcinogens, which put people at risk from inhaling toxic chemicals and having them come into contact with their skin.
      Lawsuits are now being filed throughout the country to challenge mandatory masks.”

      https://standforhealthfreedom.com/action/act-now-mandatory-masks-endanger-your-health

      So, I repeat. I will not be wearing a face mask or any other form of face-covering. I will travel, and present at my local supermarket/shops as usual. If they call the police, I will not pay any fine. I will accept whatever consequences come to me in order to fight the growing tyrannical governance in the UK broadly, but in particular in Scotland where the danger is, I believe, much greater. Ends.

      • I have now received a reply from my MSP (not the MP, so I guess the MSP speaks for them both)…

        Dear [Name],

        Thank you for your email. This was clearly a very important matter that you wanted to communicate to Stuart and I as you seem to have emailed us about it on both Friday and Saturday.

        I am not entirely clear as to the purpose of your email other than to inform us that you don’t intend to comply with the law. If that was it’s only purpose then message received and understood.

        I am unclear as to what the organisation is that you have quoted from but my understanding is that the public health evidence shows that in most cases for a healthy person the wearing of a face covering does not compromise anyone’s health. For instance the World Health Organisation recommends the wearing of a face covering in situations where there will be members of the public and physical distancing is difficult. Furthermore, there are exemptions in place for the mandatory wearing of face coverings that take account of this being a general rule.

        I am sorry you feel there is growing tyrannical governance in Scotland. I respectfully disagree but I maybe have a higher threshold for what I consider tyranny to be.

        Thanks again for emailing me. (Signed)…

        MY RESPONSE…

        Dear [MSP – again copied to the MP]

        I have had trouble with my Outlook because emails were not arriving or leaving via Outlook. After sending the email via the BT website, Outlook was restored and sent the message again – I apologise for this. Be assured however, that your sarcasm is never lost on me…

        The World Health Organisation originally said that face masks were of little to no use in the wider population. They’ve about-turned on this due to their anxiety to keep us imprisoned as long as possible; they didn’t expect the easing of lockdown so soon, and so the fear is kept in place by warnings of a second wave (third, fourth wave…!)

        Since you are not entirely clear as to the purpose of my email – allow me to spell it out. I thought that my MSP and MP would want to know what the voters think (silly me) and since the impression is given in the news media that the population is compliant and going along (unthinkingly) with government rules and regulations limiting our personal freedom, I want to make clear that I am not in that apparent majority. I’ve been doing my own research and I know that we are not being told the truth about this virus. I thought it only fair to let you know that I will not wear any face-covering, whether in buses or shops. That you neither want to know this nor care, only confirms my firm belief that this virus is about as deadly as a summer cold.

        As for your “higher standard” of what you consider tyranny to be – that’s very interesting. I’ve spoken to people who have had to get letters from their boss to show to police in case they’re stopped and asked to prove why they are out of their homes, this in the first phase of this lockdown, and now we are being prohibited from buying food and medicine in shops unless we wear a face mask. If you think that is a very low gauge for tyrannical government, well, yes, your “standard” (I would say tolerance) is, indeed, higher than mine. I have become used to living as a free person, not obeying government rules restricting my movements and radically changing my way of life.

        However, I am not alone, by any means, in my concerns about authoritarian governance in Scotland – I’m including a link below to a Scottish blog where discussion is ongoing about a letter sent to the Chief Constable of Police Scotland. As you will see, there are plenty of concerns expressed about the way this virus is being used to change our way of life – and don’t miss the video as you scroll down, entitled Global Reset. It is true that the politicians at government level do not always realise that they are puppets in a much bigger plan. No conspiracy theory that – it is well documented.
        https://catholictruthblog.com/2020/07/10/letter-to-the-chief-constable-police-scotland-this-is-not-communist-china/

        Kind regards (Signed…)

        • Editor

          That MP is obviously a jobsworthy, one of Stalin’s “useful idiots”. Still, you gave him a response that he won’t forget in a hurry. What we actually need is for these people to be kicked out of office. Great response, though.

  9. Interesting news on Covid-19 and how Florida is becoming the World’s Coronavirus hotspot. However I found these two items interesting on the current panic there.

    http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=210028

      • Editor

        Yes, they are panicking and people in Serbia are protesting and the Government is backing down ! Word is spreading that its a hyped up NWO play on a virus that is less deadly than a bad flu. In England they are having trouble keeping a lid on the lies.

        http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=210113

        The NWO first said say it wasn’t airborne, but now they say it is! So Boris will now push for mandatory mask wearing, this will weaken our respiratory and more susceptible to chest infections, when autumn arrives we will suffer more coughs, colds and chest infections which, they will say, is a corona virus. They are shutting down Melbourne, Leicester and other places globally to keep people scared. They are increasing testing to increase the numbers of positive cases (though a bad cold, or flu in the last two years can show a positive test).

        Below is a video that will give nightmares to Bill Gates, Boris Johnson, Fauchi, Matt Hancock, George Soros, Prof. Whitty and the WHO / NWO (New World Order mob). In the video, Dr Richard Bartlett gives details that NWO mob is trying to suppress from the public eye. This Doctor is saying there is no need for ‘Vaccines,’ ‘Covid-19 Tracker apps’ ‘brown shirt Covid tracers,’ and everything these NWO scammers are trying to force on us for their Chinese Communist styled control of the masses. In the video Dr Bartlett makes it clear that effective treatments already exist. I believe the video below may be a copy of a copy (bad quality) – watch it before its censored!

        • Francscomarta,

          That is wonderful news, and God bless Texas! Hook ’em horns!

          My prayers for the voices of truth are being heard, Deo Gracias.

  10. The article pasted below is on how wearing a mask is connected with the pagan ritual of transformation. Basically they use it to make an initiate lose their old identity so you can then be easily convinced to take on a new one.
    Considering mask wearing is used in pagan religious rituals, how can our bishops mandate that priests wear them during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The Scottish bishops are mandating this, not the Scottish government.
    https://therayfield.com/why-youre-wearing-a-mask-the-pagan-ritual-of-transformation

  11. Very good letter to your MSP Editor.

    I went to Lidl today and was the only person not wearing a muzzle (apart from a big scary looking man with lots of tattoos who was also muzzle-free). Nobody challenged me but it was a decidedly unpleasant experience ..I felt constantly threatened because I couldn’t see anybody’s face. I did actually feel very sorry for the other shoppers and the staff – they seemed to be imprisoned in their muzzles.

    Is there no movement in Scotland to tell the government to remove this mandatory face mask law? Not even a petition? Are people just going to submit to this oppression without a peep of complaint?
