Doctors Punished Personally/Financially For Not Obeying “Covid Orthodoxy”…

Comment: 

There are reports this morning on the  refusal of the Westminster Government to identify a way out of lockdown.  Click here to read more.

Note this from one MP – the Deputy Chair of the group, Steve Baker: “We locked down the country and shut down our schools on the basis of a forecast, so why can’t we open it up on the basis of one too? It is not sustainable to leave the public and British businesses languishing any longer.”   

Is Steve Baker right – or is the Prime Minister right to refuse to commit to ending lockdowns and restrictions, in the spirit of “better safe than sorry”? Is “staying safe” the most important thing?  

Scotland – One of the Authoritarian Outriders in the Western World?

Will Sturgeon’s totalitarian waltz speed up in 2021?

by Tom Gallagher

THE NICOLA STURGEON of 2021 is no Adolf Hitler.

But she is in the vanguard of an attempt to weaken and discredit democracy that is being rolled out across the  world.  Democracy has arguably never been weaker since the German Fuhrer took his own life in May 1945 after almost beating Europe into insensibility…  

There is mounting evidence that (in the words of Craig Murray) Sturgeon went to great lengths to try and ‘fit up’ her predecessor Alex Salmond. At least one powerful person at the top of the civil service seems to have been amongst accessories in this seeming act of personal vengeance, the police were less willing participants, and lately senior law officials have appeared ready to cast aside their neutrality to try and protect the First Minister’s flank after her operation effectively backfires.

Due to its position within the democratic United Kingdom, Scotland is constrained from gravitating towards outright authoritarian rule. But the standardisation and synchronisation of political control – resembling the gleichshaltung which emerged in Nazi Germany – has made fearful advances. Party and state are increasingly fused, the opposition fears to oppose, much of civil society has been absorbed into the ruling power structure, local government is suborned, and private institutions are coerced into hailing the new political order.

The pandemic has been used to impose sweeping restrictions on public life that make Scotland one of the authoritarian outriders in the Western world. At the moment churches are closed, outdoor activities by citizens are subject to police swoops, and increasingly the life is being choked out of thousands of small businesses by ever-tightening restrictions on what they are permitted to do.

The impact of the pandemic on the normal workings of society has been felt far and wide.  But in Scotland it has given a mighty push to normalise the abnormal in both daily life and politics. Hitler was able to do this thanks to the violent shocks Germany had endured in the twenty years before he came to power. Mobilisation of society for war, defeat and loss of territory, the rise of communism, endless economic troubles from runaway inflation to mass unemployment, weakened the hold of those old institutions promoting civility and restraint.

An ‘anything goes mentality’ increasingly took hold because given what it seemed the nation had already suffered, there wasn’t much else to lose. It all meant Hitler could be portrayed as a providential figure; his ways were harsh and often extreme but many were persuaded that the times warranted them.  A cult of resentment and grievance was spread through society by the latest mediums of communications even when Germany’s traditional rivals were proving accommodating to the new order…

I hope I will be proven wrong but I am increasingly convinced that Nicola Sturgeon is creating a pre-insurrectionary mood by brazenly exceeding her powers, encouraging MPs to act as ruffians at Westminster, and above all diverting large amounts of UK pandemic business relief funding.

How keen the British government is to face up to the challenge of the separatists who have used the devolved institutions to entrench themselves in power, will probably determine whether Scotland can avoid  becoming a new European trouble-spot in which political fanatics use old hatreds and gangster methods to get their way. 

Most of the British governing classes eventually saw through Hitler and prepared Britain to resist his onslaught.  There is insufficient evidence that decision-makers in London properly appreciate the gravity of the situation in Scotland. Unless this changes, Britain could face upheaval and tragedy as a result of territorial politics being cold-bloodedly harnessed behind an extremist purpose. Click here to read entire article.

Comment: 

There is plenty of food for thought in the above article.  However, the idea that the opposition is afraid to oppose, puzzles me.  It seems clear, all the way from the beginning of the ongoing totalitarian drive to rule by diktat, that all politicians are aiding and abetting the removal of our liberties, with the exception of an occasional intervention in London by – for example – Sir Desmond Swayne MP.  The majority of parliamentarians, however, have supported the Government’s restrictions on our personal and religious freedoms. To their eternal (not kidding) shame. 

The leaders in Westminster and in the devolved institutions seem, self-evidently, to be of one mind – that we have a deadly virus which must be suppressed and until that (impossible) day, we must sacrifice our liberty, even to the point where God is counted among the “non-essential items”.  At least, that’s been the cover story. 

Personally, I believe that the virus is a means of introducing us to permanent totalitarian Communist rule – and God is always “non-essential” in Communist countries; just ask the underground Catholics in China. So, share your thoughts – are we blessed to have Nicola Sturgeon, such a caring leader who is simply trying to make sure we “stay safe” (she said sarcastically), or IS Scotland “one of the authoritarian outriders in the Western world” as Tom Gallagher suggests?   

Nicola Sturgeon: Worship Virus, Not God – Bishops Must Refuse To Comply…

Summary, Edinburgh Evening News (note:  no mention of ban on church-attending)

Lockdown may last longer than January

Scotland’s new lockdown may last longer than initially intended, Nicola Sturgeon has told MSPs.

A legal requirement will be in force to ensure Scots living in Level 4 areas remain at home as much as possible during January.

However, the First Minister told the Scottish Parliament that these changes will be kept “under review”.

She said: “However, I cannot at this stage rule out keeping them in place longer, nor making further changes. Nothing about this is easy.”

Comment: 

As expected by those of us who are totally cynical about the Scottish Government and its leader who is well overdue an Emmy Award for best Scottish TV Actress, Nicola Sturgeon has announced that we are going into full lockdown from midnight tonight.  While Boris/England is agonising over whether or not to introduce another full-blown lockdown, Nicola Sturgeon – ever anxious to portray herself as the decisive-if-reluctant-bearer-of bad-tidings- leader, has plunged Scotland into another lockdown. 

Frankly, I don’t believe the propaganda about the NHS being in peril – but even so, that’s not my problem.  I’ve been paying into the NHS for years and I’m not one bit pleased that my contributions apparently mean nothing, that the NHS is not fit for purpose, it can’t deal with a simple virus.  It’s not my job to protect the NHS.  It’s my job to be suspicious of Government and believe me, suspicious is the understatement of the year, since I can no longer describe myself as a free person living in a free country. 

Sturgeon has the temerity to once again ban worship in churches, and the bishops will no doubt yet again, be obedient servants of the State.  Then she has the added temerity to say that the most painful decision was the restrictions on schools and nurseries.  Honestly, you couldn’t make this stuff up. 

Catholic Truth calls on the Bishops and, indeed, all those in positions of religious authority from priests to religious superiors to bishops, to refuse to comply this time.  No matter the legal consequences.  We cannot replace the worship of God with the worship of a virus.  Speaking for myself, if our priests decide to defy this unlawful and – I would say – blasphemous action, I will be at Mass on Sunday as I am required by God’s law. 

Our blogger, Athanasius, is preparing a second Open Letter to the Bishops of Scotland, which we will publish as a separate thread as soon as he submits it, within the next day or two, but in the meantime, please make clear your own position on this latest blow to our person and religious freedom.  Are you going to sigh and accept it all – again?   

Covid Is Excuse To Take Our Freedom… Will We Fight For The Faith in 2021?

Comment: 

There is really nothing I can add to (but merely endorse) Michael Matt’s powerful words in the above video. Really powerful. Just pay close attention to the situation in Italy and prepare for similar here – including the threat of living like this until at least 2024. I’m already on record as saying that I believe we’ll be living like this until the Consecration of Russia is done, and that remains my firm belief.  That doesn’t mean we roll over and accept what is happening. We return again and again to the same question, then, the same dilemma – what can we do?  

Covid Compliance Leads To Tyranny… Spain Proof Positive – So Stop Complying! 

Comment: 

I stopped watching Carl Vernon videos a long time ago due to his foul mouth – generally speaking, he can’t string a paragraph together without using bad language.  The above video is one of the exceptions – and it’s worth reflecting on the truth of what Carl is saying: full compliance, which is what we are witnessing across the UK today, is a huge mistake. Tyranny is upon us – and the majority don’t even recognise it. 

Yet, the silence from churchmen at every level is deafening.  The apparently prophetic words of (the deceased) American Archbishop Fulton Sheen spring to mind:  “… a religion that doesn’t interfere with the secular order will soon discover that the secular order will not refrain from interfering with it.”   

Covid Vaccines – Are We Guinea Pigs? 

Media Blackout: Moderna’s FDA Report Lists 13 Total Deaths, 6 In Vaccine Group, 7 In Placebo

Spiro Skouras writes…

The Pfizer Covid vaccine is already being administered to the public in the UK and the first doses have been given in the US ahead of a mass vaccination campaign on a global scale.

It is important to recognize that the Pfizer Covid vaccine has not been approved by the FDA. It has only received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) meaning the vaccine has not gone through the standard process to get official approval from the regulatory agency.

Now Moderna’s experimental Covid vaccine is set to get the same Emergency Use Authorization allowing the shot to be distributed to millions of people.

We have already witnessed short term adverse events (side effects) from the Pfizer vaccine. Truth is, nobody knows what the long term effects could be and it appears the public is being subjected to an experiment on a global scale.

In this report, we examine discrepancies in the FDA Moderna report that was voted on by an advisory panel. The panel voted 20-0 recommending EUA.

Some of the discrepancies include cherry picked trial participants to achieve the desired results to gain EUA. As well as 13 total deaths in the trials, 6 in the vaccinated group and 7 in the placebo. Something the media refuses to address.

Covid-Christmas: Politicians Panic As Media Puts Pressure To Tighten Rules… 

Comment: 

It’s truly terrifying to watch the the way the (entirely contrived) fear of “the virus” is continuing to be peddled by media hacks and career politicians like Keir Starmer, as evidenced in the above news clip. None of these people have lost a day’s pay, remember, while many small business owners and employees are struggling and may lose their livelihoods.  Remember, Kay Burley, and several other Sky News employees were caught breaking the Covid rules but lest you imagine that they were slapped with the same huge fines that the rest of us land in similar circumstances, think again; they’ve been suspended for a few months on – wait for this – full pay. That is, they’ve been sent off on holiday.  Laugh? I thought I’d never start.

I’m certainly not laughing at the threat to remove the “Christmas carrot”…  Having dangled the carrot of a few days of relative freedom over Christmas, there is every chance now that this will not happen, or, at least, that the restrictions will be tightened to make a show of being “responsible”  – when, in fact, both the political class and the media are wholly irresponsible, lying to us about this horrible, but certainly not deadly, virus.  “Surges”?  “Spikes” – I’m still waiting, almost one year on, to meet anyone who has been diagnosed with this virus, and I’m still waiting, almost one year on, to meet anyone else who has met someone diagnosed with it.  So, gimme a break. We’re not ALL stupid.  Last time I checked, the figures showed that of those who DO get his blankety blank virus, the majority – 99.97% – recover. That’s the only number that counts… The top cause of death in the UK is heart disease – are we all to be fitted with pacemakers?  Gerragrip.  This wasn’t a pandemic last March and it’s not a pandemic now.  

Yet, people are saying things like “I wonder what we’ll be allowed to do” [over Christmas];  that is worrying.  It demonstrates how quickly and easily the population has slipped into totalitarianism, accepting that the Government has the right to tell us what to do in our personal and religious lives.  Should we check with our MP or MSP to make sure it’s OK to go to church at Christmas?  Leave out a snack for Santa?   Yeah right.  As Sir Desmond Swayne MP said on the floor of the House of Commons a couple of weeks ago: this is a very dangerous lesson to give the Government; that they only have to snap their fingers and we will give up our freedoms with nothing more than a shrug of the shoulders. 

For pity’s sake, fellow Scots, English, Welsh and Irish, find some backbone and fight back against this tyranny. 

I will spend Christmas as I choose.  What about you?  

Coronavirus: Rushed Vaccine Due To Be Rolled Out…Will YOU Take It? I Won’t!

The following extract from Buzzfeed News (2018) is a reminder of the danger of accepting a vaccine rush-job…

Dozens of NHS workers are fighting for compensation after developing narcolepsy from a swine flu vaccine that was rushed into service without the usual testing when the disease spread across the globe in 2009. They say it has destroyed their careers and their health.

When nurse Meleney Gallagher was told to line up with her colleagues on the renal ward at Sunderland Royal Hospital, for her swine flu vaccination, she had no idea the injection she was about to have had not gone through the usual testing process.

It had been rushed into circulation after the swine flu virus had swept across the globe in 2009, prompting fears thousands of people could die. From the moment the needle broke Gallagher’s skin, her life would never be the same.

“I remember vividly we were all lined up in the corridor and we were told we had to have it. It wasn’t a choice,” she claimed. “I was pressured into it. We were given no information.”

The date was 23 November 2009 and Gallagher was one of thousands of NHS staff vaccinated with Pandemrix, a vaccine made by pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).

Eight years later, her career in the NHS is a memory and she’s living with incurable, debilitating narcolepsy and suffers from cataplexy, a sudden, uncontrollable loss of muscle tone that can cause her to collapse without warning. Because of her condition, she can no longer work or drive.

People with narcolepsy experience chronic fatigue and difficulty sleeping at night. They can have night terrors, hallucinations, and a range of mental health problems.

Gallagher is not alone.  Click here to read the rest of this report…

I will not take this vaccine, under any circumstances.  Will you?  

Lockdowns – Enough! Millions Need To Take To The Streets – Broadcaster…

Comment: 

Any time I’ve heard her on the subject of Covid-19 and all that goes with it, Carol McGiffin is always clear-thinking and straight to the point.  She’s absolutely right to say that unless people take to the streets in millions, we’ll be living like this indefinitely.  In fact, that’s the very word which has featured often in the Boris & Nicola Show – “indefinitely”…  We won’t be returning to the old normal…. we need to get used to the “new normal”.  And I’m sure the same is true about Wales and the North of Ireland.  I just never hear those comedy sketches.   It looks very much like, well, if we want to have our God-given (not Government-given) rights and freedoms back, we are going to have to do something drastic.  We’re going to have to rebel, whether individually, or, as Carol says, in our millions on the streets of the UK.  It may be that we come to see that this is our Christian duty, that we have a moral obligation to protest the totalitarianism under which we are currently living.  I think she’s on the button there. 

However, when reflecting on the “why” – why does the Government continue with the same failed (and ridiculous) lockdowns and restrictions when they clearly don’t work – Carol (and interviewer, Kevin)  draw the same conclusion as all the other commentators:  the received wisdom seems to be that it’s because the politicians have boxed themselves into a corner and can’t find a way of getting out of the situation… they’re committed to lockdowns whether or not they work, because the politicians don’t want to lose face.  I think this is totally false. They’re brazen – these scoundrels don’t give a toss about “losing face”…

Politicians getting themselves out of awkward situations, doing “u-turns” – albeit dressed up to not look like u-turns – is part and parcel of being a politician.  They lie for a living.  It’s nothing to them to change course. That is not the reason for their persistence. Watch any episode of ‘Yes, Prime Minister’ or ‘House of Cards’ to refresh your memory.  No, that’s not it.  They have tried and tested ways of changing course and getting away with it – they’ve literally made a career out of doing just that.  So, why are they continuing with the same old, same old, ridiculous and failed policies? 

As I’ve opined many times on this blog, I believe it’s because there’s big money involved.  In the above interview, there’s no mention of The Great Reset, brainchild of the World Economic Forum, much less one of their major slogans, “You’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy about it”; no mention either of the claim from the President of Belarus that he refused a bribe to introduce lockdowns in his country.  No mention at all. 

So, disappointingly, even the more savvy of the broadcasters in today’s heavily censored media climate, still don’t get it.  Or maybe they do and they’re not allowed to say so on air.  If so, they’re not being honest by continuing to peddle the lie that suddenly our political masters are just a tad too shy and embarrassed to admit that they made some mistakes in imposing lockdowns, destroying the economy, leaving patients without necessary treatments and operations for the purpose of allowing the NHS to focus on those with Covid symptoms, and too bad about the dramatic increase in suicides as a result of depression, job losses and a combination of the above. Doesn’t make sense to me.  There’s money being handed down from those in high – if very dark – places.  That’s my considered opinion…  What about you? 

Covid-19: Day of Reckoning Ahead & Green Agenda – UK Looking Ridiculous?

Comment: 

Once again, talkRadio covers the issues that are being totally ignored by the mainstream media, which is keen to push the panic Covid-19 lie, as well as the ridiculous “green” agenda,  designed to keep us all strictly under Government control and to make us all poorer.  If you disagree, feel free to say so…

Also, is the new Reform UK Party likely to win the “anti-lockdown” battle – or should Richard Tice stick with the Brexit Battle?
