Urgent plea to fix ‘broken’ health system in Sydney hospital | 9 News Australia
A Westmead hospital whistleblower is desperately calling for the ‘broken’ health system to be fixed, as sick patients wait for more than 14 hours for medical care.
Disturbing photo of a patient on a drip sleeping on the floor of a waiting room
reveals the dire state of Australia’s overrun healthcare system - as insiders speak out
A healthcare workers has reported that overcrowding in a western Sydney hospital is leading to patients dying in the waiting room, as a disturbing photo emerges of a woman being treated with a drip on the floor. The anonymous whistleblower, who works at Westmead Hospital in Parramatta, told 9News the situation is so dire that 'people's lives are at stake'. 'I don't want to look another patient's relative in the eye and say they have died in our waiting room,' the worker said. 'They have died because the emergency department was so overcrowded that patients we have already seen have not moved on and we can't treat new patients.' A troubling picture of a patient receiving an intravenous drip while lying on the waiting room floor was taken at 5am on Saturday 13 May by another horrified patient - who was forced to wait for almost 15 hours herself. A troubling picture of a patient receiving an intravenous drip while lying on the waiting room floor was taken at 5am on Saturday 13 May by another horrified patient - who was forced to wait for almost 15 hours herself. An anonymous whistleblower, who works at Westmead Hospital in Parramatta in Sydney's west, told 9Newsthat overcrowding is so dire that 'people's lives are at stake'. The worker suggested people to drive to Royal North Shore Hospital if they wanted to receive better care. It comes after the emergence of a troubling picture of a patient receiving an intravenous drip while lying on the waiting room floor. The picture was taken at 5am on Saturday May 13 by another horrified patient. Josephine Lord, 67, was admitted to hospital with a fever and breathing problems but was forced to wait for almost 15 hours when she saw a woman under a blanket being treated on the floor. 'It's at that point I'm thinking, am I in trouble here?' Ms Lord told 9News journalist Ruth Wyn Williams. The Winston Hills grandmother was then moved to a temporary bed and forced to stay in the emergency department for three days after doctors told her they had no beds left. Westmead Hospital bosses have apologised for long wait times and have sad they had increased staffing levels. Western Sydney Local Health District chief executive Graham Loy said Westmead Hospital had experienced high patient loads in the emergency department. 'We sincerely apologise to anyone who may have experienced a long wait time in our emergency department (ED),' Mr Loy told 9News. 'Westmead Hospital has experienced a high volume of patients presenting to the ED in recent months. "Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) is working hard to improve the way we manage patient demand, increase staffing levels and invest in programs to provide alternative pathways for urgent care and ease pressure on our emergency departments. Mr Loy said they had increased staffing in the beleaguered hospital and they had been encouraging aged care patients to use the inTouch service to avoid presenting in emergency departments...
Agent Zelensky - Part 1
As a former intelligence officer, I’ve been wondering why has no one done an investigation about Volodymyr Zelensky, the President of Ukraine? His rise to power, in my opinion, represents an incredible manipulation of world opinion that will go down in history as a classic case study in social psychological engineering: an ordinary comedian who came to power because he promised a long-awaited peace, who then dragged his fellow citizens into a bloody war that can only be described as a massacre. With the help of colleagues and experts with first-hand insights into Zelensky, I have poured over documents and video to produce a film that captures this investigation. This story has so many twists and turns that I had to break it into two parts. In the first episode, presented here, I will answer the question about Zelensky’s improbable rise to power, and how the Ukrainian President accumulated his vast wealth, a sum that has only become larger since the war with Russia began. And, perhaps most importantly, why I decided to call this film “Agent Zelensky.”...
Report 77: Women Suffered 94% of Dermatological Adverse Events Reported in
First 90 Days of Pfizer COVID “Vaccine” Rollout.
80% of These Adverse Events Were Categorized As “Serious.”
The War Room/DailyClout Pfizer Documents Analysis Project Post-Marketing Group (Team 1) – Barbara Gehrett, MD; Joseph Gehrett, MD; Chris Flowers, MD; and Loree Britt – produced a report about Dermatological Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESIs) found in Pfizer document 5.3.6 Cumulative Analysis of Post-Authorization Adverse Event Reports of PF-07302048 (BNT162B2) Received Through 28-FEB-2021 (a.k.a., “5.3.6“). This category of AESIs contains two diagnoses and 20 adverse event reports. It is important to note that the AESIs in the 5.3.6 document were reported to Pfizer for only a 90-day period starting on December 1, 2020, the date of the United Kingdom’s public rollout of Pfizer’s COVID-19 experimental mRNA “vaccine” product. Key points of this report include...
India Seeking 26 Carrier-based Rafale M Fighter Jets and
Three Additional Scorpene Submarines from France
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to embark on a two-day visit to France, where he is expected to announce deals worth an estimated $10 billion for the purchase of 26 fighter jets and three submarines. He will be the guest of honor at the Bastille Day parade in Paris on Friday, when units of the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force will participate in the event. It’s a rare honor for Modi, as France does not routinely invite foreign dignitaries to the annual celebration, which marks the key event of the French Revolution in 1789. The prime minister’s visit holds special significance as France and India are celebrating 25 years of strategic partnership this year. It will be the Modi’s third visit to France, having previously traveled to the country in 2015 and 2022. It’s the second time that an Indian premier has been the guest of honor at the parade after Dr. Manmohan Singh...
The Shame of Being Debanked
The debanking phenomenon is probably far more widespread than we’ve been led to believe, writes Toby in Spiked, “mainly because the majority of people it has happened to are too embarrassed to talk about it”. Here’s an excerpt. When I got a message from PayPal last year telling me my personal account had been closed, my initial reaction was shame. Being deplatformed by a financial-services company, whether a bank or a payment processor, is a mark of Cain. You wonder what you’ve done to deserve being cast out in this way. The last thing you feel like doing is drawing attention to it, not least because it might lead to losing your other bank accounts. When I discovered that PayPal had also closed the accounts of the Free Speech Union and the Daily Sceptic, both organisations I run, that initial wave of embarrassment was replaced by anger. And after going through the internal appeals processes, I decided to launch a public campaign to get the accounts reinstated. This worked, but I haven’t used PayPal since. Meanwhile, the Free Speech Union has been lobbying the U.K. Treasury for the past nine months to put a stop to this sinister new form of cancel culture...
Nigeria to Destroy Tanker Caught Smuggling Crude Oil
Nigeria’s state-owned oil firm NNPC Ltd said on Monday an 800,000-liter (211,338-U.S. gallon) vessel carrying stolen crude had been intercepted offshore while heading to Cameroon and would be destroyed as a deterrent to oil theft. Crude theft from pipelines and wells in the Niger Delta has hobbled the country’s output in recent years and is one of the biggest challenges to confront new President Bola Tinubu. NNPC said the oil was stolen from a well in south western Ondo state. The MT Tura II vessel was owned by locally registered Holab Maritime Services Limited and had no valid documentation for the oil, the company said. Holab could not be reached for comment on numbers listed on its website. “Destroying vessels involved in transporting stolen crude oil is of paramount importance as a strong deterrent...
RFK Jr: CIA Was Involved In Funding Wuhan COVID Leak Lab
Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr declared Monday that he believes the CIA was involved in funding the Wuhan lab where the COVID pandemic originated. In an interview with Fox News’ Jesse Watters, Kennedy suggested that the Biden administration is not interested in punishing China for covering up the lab leak because it would expose National Institutes of Health funded bioweapons programs. “I think the CIA was involved certainly in this research,” Kennedy proclaimed, adding “They were funding it through USAID. And NIH, I think, in the end gave about $26 million in funding to the Wuhan lab. But USAID, which was functioning as the CIA surrogate, gave over $64 million. The Pentagon also gave a lot of money...
What you don’t know about the movie “Sound of Freedom”
There is something weighing on my heart about the film Sound of Freedom. As we all know, this is a powerful movie about the horrible reality of worldwide child trafficking. Millions of children disappear every single year. It is the worst crime of all time. I am glad that - finally - worldwide attention is given to this horror. What saddens me however, is that the film in no way reveals - or even hints to - who the true culprits are in the international child trafficking operations. It basically diverts the attention away from those who are truly responsible for the kidnapping, abusing, torturing and murdering of children worldwide. Sound of Freedom shows how this is happening deep inside the jungles of South America, by for example the Mexican cartel. Although that is true, it's in no way the full story. If the world thinks this is only done by criminals in the jungle, then they will never understand how in reality it happens in the high and lofty skyscrapers in New York, in the official government buildings of Washington DC, in the historic architectural masterpieces of London, in the beautiful castles of Europe, in the shiny conference centers of Davos, and so on...

Something incredible is happening in Europe, that will fuel the Awakening
Something incredible is happening in Europe that will have a tremendous worldwide impact. Hundreds of people are going to distribute a million flyers from StopWorldControl.com throughout every town and city of The Netherlands and Belgium. They will deliver them to thousands of school directors, hospital staff, local authorities, local media, etc. Several postmen will take tens of thousands of flyers on their daily route. The full color, double sided flyers explain in a nutshell the agenda of the World Health Organization and the World Economic Forum to impose unprecedented tyranny onto all of humanity. You can see the flyers below. They are designed as an official notice to the public, to get attention. Belgium (Brussels) and The Netherlands (Amsterdam) are at the very heart of the worldwide network of financial elites, who are behind the WHO, WEF, UN, EU, etc. These nations are also the center of the worldwide child trafficking networks, that operate all throughout the USA, Canada, the UK, Asia, Africa, Australia, etc. 74% of all child pornography material is hosted in The Netherlands, making it a worldwide hub for government organized child abuse, which is the lifeblood of the cabal. Many global lines of extreme evil lead back to The Netherlands and Belgium, from where it affects all other nations of the world...
Mark Rutte: the everyman Dutch PM whose ‘Teflon’ powers finally waned
Netherlands’ longest-serving leader has announced he will not stand at next election after his government collapsed
He was the great survivor of Dutch politics, a man whose capacity to swerve criticism and survive scandal earned him the nickname “Teflon Mark”, combining backroom skills with everyman appeal to become the country’s longest-serving leader. But Mark Rutte came unstuck on Monday, telling shocked MPs and reporters in The Hague he would not be standing in the next elections after his divided coalition government collapsed on Friday over asylum policy. The decision brings to an end the 56-year-old’s 17-year tenure as leader of the liberal-conservative People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) and 13 years as prime minister of the Netherlands at the head of four different governments. “I do this with mixed feelings, with emotion,” he said. “But it feels right.” As the EU’s longest-serving government leader after Hungary’s Viktor Orbán, his name has been floated for international jobs, including at Nato and the European Council....
Lancet Study on Covid Vaccine Autopsies Finds 74% Were Caused by Vaccine –
Study is Removed Within 24 Hours
A Lancet review of 325 autopsies after Covid vaccination found that 74% of the deaths were caused by the vaccine – but the study was removed within 24 hours. The paper, a pre-print that was awaiting peer-review, is written by leading cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, Yale epidemiologist Dr. Harvey Risch and their colleagues at the Wellness Company and was published online on Wednesday on the pre-print site of the prestigious medical journal. However, less than 24 hours later, the study was removed and a note appeared stating: “This preprint has been removed by Preprints with the Lancet because the study’s conclusions are not supported by the study methodology.” While the study had not undergone any part of the peer-review process, the note implies it fell foul of “screening criteria”.
Mexican Pemex Estimates Platform Fire Shut In 700,000 Barrels Of Oil
Mexican oil company Pemex estimates that a deadly fire on a majoroffshore platform off the southern edge of the Gulf of Mexico has led to the loss of 700,000 barrels of crude oil production so far, while one person remains missing, the CEO of the state company, Octavio Romero, said on Saturday. The fire started early Friday on the Nohoch-A link platform of the company’s Cantarell Field and later moved to a compression complex, killing two people. The fire has since been controlled, the company said. “Today, 700,000 barrels of losses have been reflected (…) because we closed practically all the wells in the area,” Romero said via the company’s Twitter account. As of Saturday afternoon, 600,000 barrels of production had resumed, the executive added. The company said that searchers were still looking for the person who disappeared after the fire in Cantarell, an emblematic asset that produces some 170,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd). Located in the Bay of Campeche, about 85 kilometers from Ciudad del Carmen, Cantarell is made up of a series of fields in the marine area, and was once one of the world’s most productive. Pemex has suffered a number of industrial accidents in this highly productive zone in recent years. Most of Mexico’s crude production, approximately 1.6 million bpd, comes from the shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico...
France passes law allowing police to spy on citizens
by remotely accessing phones, other devices!
The new surveillance provision will cover laptops, cars, phones, and other devices, and allow the geolocation of suspects in crimes punishable by at least five years' imprisonment. French lawmakers have agreed on a law that enables the police to surveil suspects by remotely controlling and turning on the microphone, camera, and GPS of their mobile phones and other devices. On the evening of July 5, French legislators voted in favor of a justice reform bill that includes the highly controversial spying provision, the French newspaper Le Monde reports. According to Le Monde, the new surveillance provision will “cover laptops, cars, and other connected objects as well as phones; the measure would allow the geolocation of suspects in crimes punishable by at least five years’ jail.” The legislators added an amendment that limits the use of remotely accessing devices to “when [it is] justified by the nature and seriousness of the crime” and “for a strictly proportional duration.” All instances of police spying on devices must be approved by a judge, and the duration of surveillance must not exceed six months. “Sensitive professions” including journalists, doctors, judges, lawyers, and MPs would be excluded as targets, according to the bill...
Is there a Vatican-Clinton-Soros Axis?
This morning at Casa Santa Marta, the current papal residence, Pope Francis once more made his case against those who are clinging to the Laws of God, claiming that they might lead a double life, are sick or are otherwise distorted. He then claimed, “it is not easy to walk within the Law of the Lord without falling into rigidity,” thus putting a question mark on those who try to live the moral life of a Catholic. Here is what Pope Francis said, according to a Vatican Radio report: In many cases, the Pope continued, rigidity conceals the leading of a double life; but, he pointed out, there can also be something pathological.
‘Unbearable’ Stories From the Pandemic: Why We Must Share Them
Hopefully, those who made the shameful, unjustified, inhuman decisions that led to so many traumatic stories will regret them someday — and those who are tomorrow’s decision-makers might think twice before suppressing individual rights.
By Thi Thuy Van Dinh
Traumatic times in human experience are often best understood, across cultures, through the sharing of stories.
I have a few personal stories about the COVID-19 restrictions. As a mother, daughter and human, they illustrate to me that something is deeply wrong.
First, I was furious that the daycare centers, playgrounds and local libraries were ordered to close.
I stood in the park, looking at the roped-off swing that my one-year-old daughter loved, and felt outrage in my veins. In the name of what was this taken away from my children? I have dutifully paid taxes for years to maintain these public services.
I was exasperated that the lockdowns were so easily accepted in the West, which did not help the Global South at all. In the South, people tend to look to the West to do the right thing, as it is often not as easy for them to protest against governmental orders.
This anger was amplified a few months later.
My father fell ill two days before the lockdowns in my home country. Bound to bed, he survived for eight months without formal medical care, then passed away.
He was old and frail, so several of us preferred that he spend his last days at home and be buried next to his ancestors, rather than ending his life with strangers wearing astronaut suits and then being cremated like contaminated waste (“because of COVID-19”).
How much I wished his last days would have been less painful for him! How much I wished I and my children could have been there!
I did not know another way of mourning besides family and community gatherings, crying and talking about the deceased’s life.
I was shattered as a child and a lawyer.
The right to family of a migrant worker like me suddenly vanished, was buried and flushed away in the endless spirals of lockdowns, border closures and vaccine requirements, for the so-called “greater good.”
I was treated worse than a criminal. It was impossible to challenge these mandates. This has rendered me hurt, upset and worried for the future of my children.
We all must have a few stories like mine that motivated our decisions. Some were made under extremely coercive circumstances. Others made for the hope of a better future.
My husband and I became lockdown refugees, moving to another part of the country where we restarted from zero.
Sadly and revoltingly, my stories are nothing next to the ones I know. Those reveal the unimaginable inhumanity of the governors, hospitals, nursing homes and workplaces, from friends and friends of friends.
Somewhere in Southeast Asia, an elderly couple reliant on the village market died of hunger after the market was closed.
A Grab biker in a mega-city was sent to the quarantine center for weeks for being in close contact with a COVID-19-positive customer.
When he returned home, no one could let him know the whereabouts of his grandmother and mother who had lived with him for almost 40 years. They must have died and their bodies either discarded in some unmarked mass grave or cremated and their ashes thrown.
A whole class of more than thirty 3-year-old toddlers was taken to the quarantine center because of one positive test. The parents arrived at the daycare center to pick them up, as usual, to find their children gone. The kids had to endure quarantine alone.
A father of four children had a serious seizure immediately after being ordered to take a COVID-19 vaccine, footed his medical bills, felt lucky enough not to die and never dared to question anything.
Here in North America, one of my friends took a COVID-19 vaccine against her will when the hospital told her she could not visit and hold her dying mother’s hands. My friend surrendered because she was a human being and a mother herself.
Another friend’s husband lost his job for refusing the vaccine, forcing them to sell their house and move away to another area.
A son “kidnapped” his mother from a nursing home and hid with her in a trailer in the forest, just to take care of and spend time with her.
These stories are unbearable at different levels and dimensions. They should be contextualized for their real impact to be felt, such as where the individuals and the communities have no cushions, hunger means famine and death and many millions more girls are too young to be married and children too young to work.
They haunt me; they make me wonder whether we will be able to rebuild the world in the aftermath of such personal and collective tragedies.
There are billions of such stories of voiceless, little people, whose life and rights did not matter in the last three years. They suddenly discovered that international institutions didn’t care about them.
They came to understand the claims that the United Nations (U.N.) secretary-general was “the spokesperson for the interests of the world’s peoples, in particular, the poor and vulnerable people among them” were untrue.
U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres announced his two-step plan on March 26, 2020: “First, to suppress the transmission of Covid-19 as quickly as possible” and “keep it suppressed until a vaccine becomes available;” second, “work together to minimize the social and economic impact.”
Guterres clearly knew there would be social and economic impacts; nevertheless, he judged them minimizable. His plan was executed by almost all governments, throwing one after another lockdown blankets the world over.
He did not invite states to reconsider these unprecedented emergency measures. He did not question their proportionality and excessive duration as suggested by the U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights guidelines, or the reasons why the World Health Organization (WHO) abandoned applying its own 2019 pandemic guidelines which had recommended against unethical and anti-human rights pandemic measures.
Then he chose to carefully raise some most obvious impacts (1.6 billion students out of schools) and left out others (health matters other than COVID-19, social, economic and human rights).
No, he did not stand up for the poor and vulnerable!
The same choice was made across the U.N. entities whose abbreviations, namely, FAO, ILO, OHCHR, UNESCO, UNICEF, UNWOMEN and WHO, among others, were once synonyms of goodwill and human rights.
I was condemned to stay where I was when the leaders, the self-proclaimed philanthropists and my former colleagues were gathering in Glasgow for their COP26 on climate change.
Two years later, the U.N. system is doubling down on the new narratives of “complex global shocks,” “climate crises” and “pandemic preparedness,” envisaging how to spend more tax-paid money and create more debt rather than repair the damage done.
How about rebuilding informal economies, communities and small businesses in low- and middle-income countries?
How about children’s rights, women’s rights and human rights? Primary health care? Fair and transparent assessments of COVID-19 responses? A decent apology for letting us down?
The WHO, obviously incompetent and shameless of its poor record in managing the COVID-19 crisis, is asking member states to give it extraordinary powers so that during the next “potential” event, it can order more lockdowns, quarantines and vaccine requirements.
In many cultures, it is uncomfortable to share pain and show emotion. We often leave it to the specialists who have the duty to keep it confidential. I had adopted this advice while making a professional career in the West, but have decided to talk about my late father and volunteered to be someone else’s voice, like for the elderly couple and the Grab biker.
I invite you to consider sharing and collecting COVID-19 stories around you, within your networks and communities or on the new Covid Stories webapp depository designed to better understand the collateral damage of restriction measures globally.
Many of us may never know justice or reparations after these three agonizing years. But by archiving these stories, we should be able to, somehow, quantify some visible parts of the immense sufferings imposed on the world.
Hopefully, those who made the shameful, unjustified, inhuman decisions will regret them someday. Those who are tomorrow’s decision-makers might think twice before suppressing individual rights.
Those who prepare for future political debates might foresee the impact of the agenda they choose to promote. Those who regret their decisions and actions might behave differently during a future crisis. Those who were burned, like me, could go on.
Together, it will be our way to say “I am sorry” and “never again.”

Most High Street Banks are Signed Up to Stonewall Diversity Schemes
The majority of High Street banks are members of diversity schemes run by the controversial charity Stonewall, the Telegraph has revealed. Lenders are facing questions over their links to the charity amid a backlash over closing the bank accounts of some people with gender-critical views. A vicar who questioned his building society’s Pride branding had his account closed, while a Scottish blogger believes action was taken by his bank over his stance on gender issues. Stonewall’s Diversity Champions scheme includes guidance to employers on gender-neutral spaces and the use of pronouns. The company also runs a top 100 index that measures employers on diversity and inclusion...

Hulk of OS 35 Bulker Lifted from the Waters off Gibraltar
The salvage operation to remove the wreck of the bulker OS 35 off Gibraltar was largely completed on July 3. The two sections of the hulk have now been removed from the ocean 10 months after the vessel hit an anchored gas carrier and sank to the seafloor near one of Gibraltar’s beaches. “I’m delighted that we have finally reached this important milestone,” said the Minister for the Port, Vijay Daryanani, announcing the hulk had raised. “I’d like to thank all those who continue to work towards the ultimate goal of the final departure of the OS 35 from Gibraltar’s waters with safety and environmental protection as the top priority.” The two sections of the bulker, which had measured 584 feet, were transferred onto the semi-submersible, heavy-lift vessel Fjord. Port officials announced today that the two sections of the hull were now safely aboard the lift ship and raised above the water...
Spanish Archaeologists Plan Rescue Of 2,500-Year-Old Phoenician Shipwreck
A group of Spanish archaeologists have made detailed diagrams of a 2,500-year-old Phoenician shipwreck to help work out how best to recover it from the sea before a storm destroys it forever. The eight-meter-long Mazarron II, named after the municipality in the southeastern Spanish region of Murcia where it was found off the coast, is a unique piece of ancient maritime engineering. Nine technicians from the University of Valencia underwent 560 hours of scuba diving over more than two weeks in June to record all the cracks and fissures in the ship, which lies 60 meters (66 yards) from the Mazarron’s Playa de la Isla. Later this year, the experts will recommend how to protect and retrieve the wreck, possibly as early as next summer. It could be extracted piece by piece using the existing cracks and reassembled out of the water like a puzzle, said archaeologist Carlos de Juan from the University of Valencia-Institute of Nautical Archaeology, who coordinated the project...

Creators of Saskatechwan gov’t COVID vaccine ads admit to playing on people’s ‘fear’
'We strategized that if someone’s vaccination status began affecting their social life, travel plans, or entertainment, that could be the final motivation needed to get on board. So, we tapped into a base potential fear of this group: the fear of missing out,' the ad agency wrote. One of the makers of COVID-19 vaccine advertisements for the provincial government of Saskatchewan has admitted to playing on people’s “base potential fear” as a way of promoting the novel injections. “We strategized that if someone’s vaccination status began affecting their social life, travel plans, or entertainment, that could be the final motivation needed to get on board. So, we tapped into a base potential fear of this group: the fear of missing out,” wrote the Brown Communications Group, which made COVID-19 vaccination advertisements for Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Health, on its website...

Thousands Of Port Workers In Canada’s British Columbia Go On strike
Several thousand unionized port workers in Canada’s western province of British Columbia went on strike after failing to reach a deal to renew an industry-wide contract that expired in March, a waterfront employers group said on Saturday. The British Columbia Maritime Employers Association (BCMEA) said it and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Canada (ILWU Canada) had met Thursday and Friday in talks supported by the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. “Unfortunately, a tentative agreement could not be reached,” the BCMEA said in a statement. ILWU Canada members were on strike at sites across British Columbia, the BCMEA said. Asked for comment, the union said it would issue a statement once there is a resolution to the dispute over the collective bargaining agreement, which covers about 7,500 employees at 30 terminals in the province. The walkout could have serious consequences for Canada’s economy and small businesses, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) said in a statement. The group urged the government to ensure port operations are maintained...
Hundreds of religious parents in Maryland protest against LGBT indoctrination of kids
Parents from a diverse range of traditional religious backgrounds joined forces this week to protest the mandatory indoctrination of their children into radical LGBT ideology. Protesters said their children shouldn’t be forced to read materials that violate their religious beliefs. Hundreds of parents, including Christians, Muslims, and Hindus, reportedly gathered outside the headquarters of Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) on Tuesday to protest the district’s new policy mandating that children in kindergarten through fifth grade “engage” with LGBT reading materials as part of their English language arts curriculum. The district said in a March statement that it “expects all classrooms to be inclusive and safe spaces for students, including those who identify as LGBTQ+ or have family members in the LGBTQ+ community … Therefore, as with all curriculum resources, there is an expectation that teachers utilize these inclusive lessons and texts with all students.” Concerned parents previously filed a lawsuit against the district over the new policy last month...

Franco told Sheila about one of Trudeau’s most ironic recent expenditures. Well, you mentioned out-of-touch, and I don't think I could even come up with a more out-of-touch story than this. The Trudeau government spent $61,000 to stay in a fancy hotel in New York City to attend an anti-poverty summit. To hear that folks, this is how the Trudeau government fights poverty, by staying in a five-star hotel in Manhattan and spending $61,000 on hotel rooms. Not even to mention the cost of the flights or other meals. So here's a question, how many people do you think the government lifted out of poverty by spending $61,000 on a five-star hotel? I don't think very many...
Royal Air Force discriminated against white males to increase diversity – Inquiry
An official inquiry confirmed that Britain’s Royal Air Force (RAF) implemented discrimination practices against white males in recruiting and selection procedures in order to meet diversity goals, RAF chief Richard Knighton has said. Several years ago, reports emerged that the Royal Air Force stopped accepting white male recruits in order to increase the presence of women and ethnic minorities among armed forces staff. The UK Ministry of Defense refuted that information, while media, citing leaked RAF internal memos, reported that ethnic and gender diversity were present among officers’ performance goals...

Trudeau’s internet censorship Bill C-18 becomes law after passing Senate
Internet censorship Bill C-18 has become law despite warnings that it will end free speech in Canada. On June 22, Canada’s Senate voted 56-22 in favor of Bill C-18, titled the Online News Act, which will block news content for Canadians on social media platforms. It received Royal Assent the same day. Bill C-18 says it “establishes a framework through which digital news intermediary operators and news businesses may enter into agreements respecting news content that is made available by digital news intermediaries.” The law is presented as an attempt to keep journalism alive in Canada by providing outlets with “fair compensation” if their content is published on social media platforms. However, Bill C-18 gives the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) the power to determine which news content Canadians are permitted to view. According to the bill, to be considered “eligible” for sharing, a news outlet must be “a qualified Canadian journalism organization” and produce “news content of public interest that is primarily focused on matters of general interest and reports of current events.” It is up to the Canadian government to decide which news outlets are to be considered “eligible.”...
WEF elites admit potential for ‘darker world’ where CBDCs could be gov’t-controlled
Governments can program Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) with expiry dates and to restrict undesirable purchases, according to a discussion at the World Economic Forum (WEF) “Summer Davos” meeting in China. On Wednesday, at the WEF’s 14th Annual Meeting of the New Champions, aka “Summer Davos,” in Tianjing, China, Cornell University professor Eswar Prasad said that “we are at the cusp of physical currency essentially disappearing,” and that programmable CBDCs could take us to either a better or much darker place. “If you think about the benefits of digital money, there are huge potential gains,” said Prasad, adding, “It’s not just about digital forms of digital currency; you can have programmability – units of central bank currency with expiry dates.” “You could have […] a potentially better – or some people might say a darker world – where the government decides that units of central bank money can be used to purchase some things, but not other things that it deems less desirable like say ammunition, or drugs, or pornography, or something of the sort, and that is very powerful in terms of the use of a CBDC, and I think also extremely dangerous to central banks.”...
Trump obliterates ‘woke’ communists, Deep State for ‘waging war on God’
Former President Donald Trump unleashed a blistering attack on his political opponents this past weekend at the annual Faith & Freedom conference in Washington, D.C. Excoriating everyone from Joe Biden and left-wing Democrats to corrupt members of the Deep State, the former president held nothing back while defending Christian Americans. “Our enemies are waging war on faith and freedom, on science and religion, on history and tradition, on law and democracy, on God Almighty Himself they are waging war,” he exclaimed. “That’s not a war they’re going to win.” “The radicals are setting fire to our Constitution, abolishing free speech, attacking religious belief, erasing our borders, corrupting our elections … and trying to impose their blasphemous creed of woke communism on every American man, woman, and child,” he continued...
Really? or is the crowd still asleep?
We are at the beginning of something that is unstoppable, and which will flood the entire world.
A historically unprecedented worldwide awakening is happening, in which hundreds of millions of people are beginning to see how their governments, media and health organizations are indescribably corrupt, and are lying to them in ways nobody could have ever imagined in their worst nightmares. As a result, innumerable people in every nation no longer blindly submit themselves to the criminal plans of their overlords, but they have begun to rise up and take action to build a better world. The magnitude of this worldwide awakening is beyond anyone's comprehension. Nothing like this has ever occurred since the beginning of time. Still, it is only just beginning, and is nothing compared to what the world is about to witness soon. As vaccine adverse events get worse worldwide, as healthy and innocent people are rounded up in quarantine camps, as vaccine passports are required to participate in society, and so many more insane things are happening, this current awakening will evolve into something we cannot even imagine...
Are the vaccines the prophesied Mark of the Beast?
Hundreds of millions of people worldwide are convinced that the C0VID vaccines are the Mark of the Beast, as predicted in the Bible, which means the end of the world is near. According to a widespread belief the notorious "Mark of the Beast" heralds the total rule of evil over humanity, which leads to the final destruction of our world. Hundreds of millions of good people are therefore convinced that we are in the final days of planet earth, and humanity is doomed. They consider actions to prevent world tyranny futile, as they believe it is destined to happen. Because this belief puts hundreds of millions of people at the sidelines of world events, instead of being active at the center of what is happening, I decided to have an honest look at what the Bible really says about this...
NZ Doctor’s Appeal of ‘Covid Misinformation’ Suspension Heard
On Wednesday morning, Dr Alison Goodwin was in Wellington District Court to appeal an extreme decision made by the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) that saw her suspended and without an Annual Practicing Certificate (APC) for 10 months during the Covid pandemic. Her “crime”? Speaking the truth as she perceived it – an opinion that did not align with the NZ government and MCNZ’s messaging. In late 2020, New Zealand Doctors Speaking Out With Science (NZDSOS) member Dr. Goodwin started to speak publicly about her concerns with the NZ government’s Covid response and the lack of Informed Consent in relation to the Covid vaccination. As a doctor for nearly 30 years, most recently a General Practitioner and also trained in lifestyle medicine, she provided information to interested members of the public both online and at popular public meetings. Despite no patient complaints and no evidence of harm being caused, the MCNZ investigated, harassed, and dealt heavy-handed punishment to Dr. Goodwin for asking questions and voicing her professional medical opinion...
