F.O.I Request shows 2,207 died within 28 days of having the Covid Vaccine in Scotland during Februaryhttps://dailyexpose.co.uk/2021/03/30/f-o-i-request-shows-2207-died-within-28-days-of-having-the-covid-vaccine-in-scotland-during-february/ – “A freedom of information request made to Public Health Scotland has revealed that 2,207 people died within twenty-eight days of having either the Pfizer / BioNTech mRNA vaccine or the Oxford / AstraZeneca viral vector vaccine during the month of February… The request for the information was made on the 20th February 2021 and asked – ‘Could you please provide the total number of deaths for any reason within 28 days of having a Covid vaccine from the start of the vaccination roll out date?’.. To which Public Health Scotland responded with – ‘Using the latest mortality data available (Up to 26th February), 2,207 people have died within 28 days of vaccination (number of days between vaccine and death is 0-27 where 0 is the day of vaccination).’.. But Public Health Scotland then added a caveat to this data by stating – ‘Please note that these deaths are due to any cause, PHS is not currently aware of any deaths in Scotland that are considered conclusively linked to vaccination.’ ” Comment: The statistics held by the UK “Yellow Card” system (their equivalent of the U.S. VAERS system) only show about 500 deaths in Scotland within 28 days of taking the “jabs.” The number of deaths from Covid-19 syndrome as reported in Scotland vary from around 4 to 6 thousand, with something over 500 supposed to have died exclusively from the infection.

How Government and Pharma Are Manipulating the Public on Covid Vaccines – by Mike Whitney – https://21stcenturywire.com/2021/04/08/how-government-and-pharma-are-manipulating-public-on-covid-vaccines/ – “People need to hear both sides of the story, in fact, that’s the only way they can make an informed decision about how they wish to proceed. The media has no right to commandeer the airwaves and control whatever people hear and see. And they have no right to deliberately exclude the medical professionals and other experts whose views conflict with the official narrative. The only way that people can offer their informed consent for vaccination, is if they’re able to weigh the risks and benefits for themselves. But that’s only possible if they have access to many diverse sources of information which, at present, they don’t. Increasingly, the only message that most people hear is the one that is provided by the government in collaboration with industry honchos and other elites. Traditionally, this type of state media is called “propaganda” which is a term that certainly applies here… It doesn’t take a genius to figure out how this has affected the debate on vaccines, namely, there isn’t one. The skeptics have been dismissed as ‘antivaxx’ loonies while an entirely new regime of experimental vaccines is being praised as a “miracle drug”. At the same time, the government –which has aligned itself with the industry it’s supposed to regulate– is doing everything in its power to pressure people into getting vaccinated. What we’re seeing is the most extravagant Madison Avenue “product launch” in America’s 245-year history, and it’s coming at us full-throttle from all sides. It’s virtually impossible to turn on the TV or radio without being deluged by one emotive vignette after the other all of which are aimed at promoting vaccination. How does this respect the right of the individual to make his own informed decision free from government coercion?.. This is very scary stuff. Agents of the state now identify critics of the Covid vaccine as their mortal enemies. How did we get here? And how did we get to the point where the government is targeting people who don’t agree with them? This is way beyond Orwell. We have entered some creepy alternate universe.”

European Court Backs Mandatory Vaccinations Laws For Children – by Bill Chappell – http://netnebraska.org/node/1260172 – “European countries can legally require compulsory childhood vaccinations, the European Court of Human Rights ruled on Thursday. The decision covers preschool vaccinations for children, but it could also have an impact on the EU’s battle to control the COVID-19 pandemic… Requiring vaccines can be seen as “necessary in a democratic society,” the Strasbourg-based court said in its ruling, which came on a 16-1 vote… A Czech man had challenged his country’s vaccine requirement for young children, after being fined for refusing to have his son and daughter vaccinated against tetanus, hepatitis B and polio. The plaintiff, Pavel Vavřička, said the law infringed on his family’s right to a private life… The human rights court agreed that vaccine obligations place a burden on an individual, but it added that the societal benefits outweigh that burden… Calling vaccines ‘one of the most successful and cost-effective health interventions’ known to medicine, the court noted that the dynamics of herd immunity make it important to achieve a high rate of vaccination.”

Joe Biden Issues Executive Controls to Fight Gun Crime ‘Epidemic’ in USA – by AWR Hawkins – https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/04/08/biden-executive-gun-control/ – “President Joe Biden put forward executive gun controls Thursday to fight what he called “an epidemic” of gun crime across the country… CNN quoted Biden saying, ‘Gun violence in this country is an epidemic.’  He went so far as to describe it as “an international embarrassment.”The president then put forward executive actions which included initiatives in four areas Breitbart News highlighted on Wednesday. Those were new restrictions on “ghost guns,” a push for red flag laws, recategorization of AR-15 pistols, and DOJ-led research into gun trafficking… As for red flag laws, Biden said, “We know red flag laws can stop mass shooters before they can act out their violent plans.” He then directed the Justice Department to publish model red flag legislation that states can adopt… He did not mention Colorado has had a red flag law since January 1, 2020, but it did nothing to hinder, much less prevent, the March 22, 2021, Boulder attack… Biden also addressed AR-pistols with stabilizer braces, saying, ‘We want to treat pistols, modified with stabilizing braces, with the seriousness they deserve.’.. As Breitbart News noted, if the purchase of AR-pistols is categorized as the purchase of a “short-barreled rifle” the process of buying the firearm could require being fingerprinted and photographed, as well as undergoing a background check, registering the firearm with the ATF, paying the federal government a $200 tax (on top of the price of the firearm), and waiting nine to ten months for the whole purchasing process to be completed.”

SAGE Document Reveals ‘Covert’ Propaganda to Scare British Into Staying Home in Lockdown – by Patrick Henningsen – https://21stcenturywire.com/2021/04/06/sage-document-reveals-covert-propaganda-to-scare-british-into-staying-home/ – “Once again, the UK government has been shown to have used ‘covert tactics’ in order to scare UK residents into staying at home for lockdown by increasing the ‘perceived threat’ of COVID’ rather than genuine science-backed risk assessment data, and also used ‘hard-hitting emotional messages’ designed to cower the public into complying with the government’s arbitrary diktats… In a document presented to the UK government’s ‘SAGE’ confab, a scientific group meant to advise government on pandemic policies, it was revealed how technocrats sought to increase the ‘perceived threat’ of COVID-19 using aggressive psychological ‘hard-hitting emotional messages’ in order to brainwash the public into compliance… Upon hearing the official admission, some psychology professions have turned their sights on Downing Street, accusing bureaucrats of using “covert psychological strategies” in order to hype-up the threat of the virus, and offering no context as to the actual risk posed to the general public… The paper, written by Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviours, said:  ‘A substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened; it could be that they are reassured by the low death rate in their demographic group, although levels of concern may be rising… ‘The perceived level of personal threat needs to be increased among those who are complacent, using hard-hitting emotional messaging. To be effective this must also empower people by making clear the actions they can take to reduce the threat.’ The document, seen by the Telegraph, allegedly then gave 14 options for improving compliance including ‘use media to increase sense of personal threat’ ”

Are You Prepared For a “New Normal” of Flashmobs, Revolutionaries and a Lower Standard of Living? – by Robert Wheeler – https://www.activistpost.com/2021/04/are-you-prepared-for-a-new-normal-of-flashmobs-revolutionaries-and-a-lower-standard-of-living.html – “The protests and riots that engulfed the United States just before the election seem to have calmed down. However, you only need to turn on the news to see that random protests and mob street action are popping up all across the country… Sometimes, the target of the mob attacks is the police. Sometimes they involve competing militias. (Antifa vs. Proud Boys etc.) Sometimes, they are organized mob violence against innocent bystanders… It seems like the “new normal” everyone keeps talking about is pretty violent… Portland has become a battleground between Antifa and the Proud Boys: Antifa members routinely parade around Portland’s streets, exercising control over the territory until police disperse them. Of course, they return later. But the Proud Boys have also chosen Portland as a battleground. They routinely caravan through to confront the tolerant left and engage in physical confrontations with Antifa… Here is how The Center Square described one of these incidents… Portland is not the only city where these flashmobs are taking placeThis type of thing is becoming more and more prevalent all over the country. A week or so ago, Rochester, New York, saw a mob of Black Lives Matter protesters storm Wegmans, locking nearly 100 customers inside and keeping them hostage for almost an hour… Yes, you read that right. Police kill a man. Protesters Become Angry. At Wegmans. Marxism at its finest. (To be clear, this article is not about the death of Daniel Prude or how officers killed him. That is another topic for another article.).. Article published in 2007 predicted all of this: In 2007, The Guardian published an article entitled “Revolution, Flashmobs, and Brain Chips: A Grim Vision Of The Future.” In the article, the authors discussed a Ministry of Defense project that involved painting a picture of the future for ‘future strategic context.’ “

The essence of The Great Reset – by Jon Rappoport – https://blog.nomorefakenews.com/2021/04/06/the-essence-of-the-great-reset/ – “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen and other genders. I am Field Marshal Hermann Mao Octavio Pinochet Dulles, Chairman of the Joint Philosopher’s Committee of the World Economic Forum, the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission, the CFR, and the CDC/WHO… You are distinguished financiers, professors, scholars, heads of government, attorneys, judges, journalists, doctors, social media CEOs, and pharmaceutical princes… Tonight, I will be interviewing a hologram of the late John Dewey, the foremost educator of the 20th century, philosopher, and leader of the still-vital Pragmatist movement… We will take up the thorny problem of free speech. And deeper still, the meaning of meaning… Indeed, Herm. Every piece of information that has ever been produced, and is being produced, must be collected, and placed into distinct categories—which are then evaluated on the pragmatic principle of instrumentality… John, remind our audience what that principle is… Of course. The meaning of any statement—aka piece of information—is nothing more than the practical use to which it can be put. That is what meaning IS. Period… And therefore, we must ask, ‘Who is in charge of deciding “practical use”?’.. Let us say it is the CDC. In that case, the statement, “Vaccines are life-saving,” means, “Everyone must get vaccinated.”.. And, John, we WOULD want the CDC to be in charge of deciding PRACTICAL USE in this instance… We’ll explore that in a moment, John. But first, what happens to the people who are claiming that “Vaccines are life-saving” is a gross lie?.. They would be censored, of course. Because they’re trying to assert their power to decide the practical use of the statement about vaccines. Their practical use is: ‘don’t get vaccinated.’.. I see. Censor them.”

On the Miserable Necessity of Doing Censorship Stories in Pairs –  “Meet the Censored” will now come out in sets of left and right bans, in the (probably vain) hope that fewer people will cheer news of deletions and suspensions – by Matt Taibbi – https://taibbi.substack.com/p/on-the-miserable-necessity-of-doing – “From now on, “Meet the Censored” articles will be released in pairs. The speech debate has become so partisan that people now often cheer news that this or that person has been kicked off the Internet — this is an increasingly common reaction. When I profiled World Socialist Web Site writer Andre Damon, conservatives complained that his site wasn’t representative of the censorship problem, and I was showing bias. When I profiled Irreversible Damage author Abigail Shrier, leftists argued I was carrying water for the intolerant right… I don’t particularly care whom people think I’m carrying water for, but in the effort to keep eyes on the ball, I’m going to release these stories in matched sets: one on the right, one on the left, one conservative, one not, etc. The first two such pieces, coming out today, will feature the non-profit investigative outfit U.S. Right to Know, and well-known conservative reporter Paul Sperry… Moreover, the mission creep has been mind-boggling. Silicon Valley has gone from banning Trump for past concrete violations to future potential violations. Facebook just last week banned an interview of Trump by daughter-in-law Lara, declaring that “the voice of Donald Trump” will henceforth be removed, as the risk of allowing it to be heard at all is “too great.” In a flash, content moderation went from enforcement of terms of service to Minority Report-style projection of future offense… Ten years from now, people will likely not have trouble realizing that putting five or six companies in charge of regulating all content was probably not a good idea, for all but a small handful of empowered actors. At the moment, the partisan angle is clouding the issue, as ordinary people are being conned into viewing speech as a giant turf war in which they have a rooting interest. News flash: you probably don’t.”

The Donbass War Of 2021? – by J.Hawk – https://southfront.org/the-donbass-war-of-2021/ – “The Russian government has made it clear on numerous occasions that it is adhering to the Minsk Agreements, will not abandon the Donbass, but at the same time will not escalate the situation out of the desire to minimize the damage to all concerned. In practical terms it means a continuation of “coercive diplomacy”. Russian military force will be used only if Ukraine attempts to create facts on the ground through offensive action. For that reason it is unlikely in the extreme that Russia will be the one to escalate first. It is worth remembering that both the summer 2014 campaign and the winter 2014/15 campaign were initiated by Kiev which first sent troops and bombers to suppress the then-peaceful protests against the Maidan and referenda to secede, and then to hope to quickly resolve the stalemate. Both operations ended in failure through the efforts of the hastily assembled and armed militias of the breakaway republics, with some “Northern Wind” military support that decimated Ukrainian forces… In practice it means that Zelensky might be in process of being a scapegoat for Ukraine’s all-but-inevitable defeat at the hands of Russian forces hastening to aid the republics in the event of Ukraine’s military scoring early victories. Blackmail might be playing a role in Zelensky’s calculus too. There were persistent reports in March of an imminent release of a documentary implicating Zelensky’s office in the failure of Ukrainian intelligence operation to lure Wagner associates to Ukraine in order to imprison and try them…For all of the above reasons, a Ukrainian military operation, even a limited one, seems unlikely in the immediate future. The very visible Ukrainian troop movements meant that no element of surprise could be achieved. The aim appears to have been to relocate sizable formations to the Donbass so as to provide them with an ability to launch a quick, almost no-warning attack in the future, after Novorossia’s vigilance has been dulled by months of alerts and provocations… Unless other events intervene, the period of greatest danger will be the Cossack Mace exercise held during the summer of 2021. The aim of the exercise which will take place under British leadership is to practice repelling a “Russian invasion” and then launching an offensive to secure the Ukraine-Russia border which would mean the end of Novorossia… The fact of British leadership is particularly worrisome, since that country seems to have undertaken the task of “dirty tricks” on Washington’s behalf.”

From the BEYOND-Hilarious Desk: If Derek Chauvin acquitted, “all hell will break loose” – by Jon Rappoport – https://blog.nomorefakenews.com/2021/04/07/if-derek-chauvin-acquitted-all-hell-will-break-loose/ – “New York Times Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist, Maxwell Marmaduke Hoglicker IV, interviewed the Judge after his groundbreaking ruling in the Chauvin case: ‘Judge, why did you suddenly cancel the trial after its eighth day, dismiss the jury, and declare Derek Chauvin guilty of murdering George Floyd?’.. ‘Well, Max, it was obvious to me there were overriding concerns about public safety. You know—burning cities, for example.’.. ‘The legal community has hailed your ruling a breakthrough precedent.’.. ‘I’m sure it is…’.. ‘When you dismissed the jury yesterday, as a witness was detailing the crucial role George Floyd’s ingestion of a highly dangerous opioid could have played in his death…’.. ‘I envisioned Minneapolis going up in flames. I believe that vision was sent to me by a Higher Power. A few hours later, I spoke with my pastor, who is in prison, and he confirmed he had the same vision.’.. ‘So that was verification.’.. ‘Yes, Max. And I want to say this. Going forward, I believe many, many cases will be decided on this new principle of public safety. In other words, if the threat of violence is sufficiently high, and the threat comes from inviolable groups, a judge will make a decisive and immediate ruling.’.. ‘What is an inviolable group, Judge?.. ‘That would be an organization whose overall stance on matters of justice cannot be challenged. If that group threatens violence, a judge must act. In accordance with the group.’ ”

From the Official-State-Propaganda Desk: Western Public Support For Ukraine Mounts Amid Russian Buildup Near Borderhttps://www.rferl.org/a/ukraine-britain-russian-troop-buildup-concerns-johnson/31188896.html – “Western expressions of support for Ukraine are growing amid an uptick in violence and an increased Russian troop presence across the border that have heightened concerns of a widening conflict… NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on April 6 that he had called Ukraine’s president ‘to express serious concern about Russia’s military activities in and around Ukraine & ongoing ceasefire violations.’ (Note: The ceasefire violations are almost exclusively by Ukraine again mainly civilians in the Donbass)Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy reportedly told Stoltenberg that a path toward NATO membership was the only way to end war in eastern Ukraine (Note: There are many reasons why Ukraine does not qualify for NATO membership) where Russia-backed separatists continue to battle Ukrainian government forces seven years into the conflict… Zelenskiy also urged NATO member states to strengthen their military presence in the Black Sea region as a “powerful deterrent” to Moscow… Stoltenberg tweeted that ‘#NATO firmly supports #Ukraine’s sovereignty & territorial integrity. We remain committed to our close partnership.’.. A spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin later misleadingly characterized the situation as a “domestic problem” and said Ukrainian membership in the transatlantic military alliance would make things worse… Since occupying and annexing Crimea from Ukraine early in 2014, overwhelming evidence suggests Russia has continued to lend diplomatic and military aid to armed separatists fighting in eastern Ukraine, despite denials to the contrary… ‘We very much doubt that this will help Ukraine settle its domestic problem,’ Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on April 6. ‘From our point of view, it will only worsen the situation.’ ” (underlined emphases added)Comment: Apparently the “Western Public Support” mentioned in the headline is pretty much exclusively from Western military and political forces complicit in the U.S. and NATO precipitated coup in 2014.

Biden Is Determined to Create Jobs… in China – by Gordon G. Chang – https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/17250/biden-jobs-plan-china – “For three principal reasons, his [Biden’s] jobs plan will create full employment in China. First, Biden will create substantially more demand for Chinese materials to go into America’s planned physical infrastructure improvements. Second, the large corporate tax increases he proposes will drive even more businesses out of the U.S. — and across the Pacific. Third, Biden’s “green energy” ideas will eliminate one of the crucial advantages American manufacturers now have: cheap energy… ‘Unless we invest in the capacity to make the steel, cement, and the other materials that go into our roads, bridges, and other infrastructure, we will always be at the mercy of China’s Communist Party” — Jonathan Bass, CEO of Whom Home and onshoring advocate, in an interview with Gatestone Institute, April 2021… ‘Domestic security, domestic economic security, is essential to international security. If we damage our economy… with all these tax hikes, including the corporate tax hikes, companies will be leaving, not coming here. We will lose jobs, not gain jobs. Our whole economy will suffer.’ — Larry Kudlow, former director of the National Economic Council, Fox Business, March 30, 2021… So, do we really need the federal government to do anything? After all, industry is moving in a “green energy” direction on its own.”

Arkansas Becomes First State to Ban Gender Reassignment Surgeries in Children – by Jack Phillips – https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/arkansas-becomes-first-state-to-ban-gender-reassignment-surgeries-in-children_3764840.html – “Arkansas on Tuesday became the first state to outlaw gender reassignment surgeries and hormone treatments for children under the age of 18, after Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, a Republican, vetoed the measure… The House voted 71-24 and Senate voted 25-8 on Tuesday to override his veto… The bill, known as House Bill 1570—or Arkansas SAFE (Save Adolescents From Experimentation) Act—will go into law 90 days after the Arkansas General Assembly goes into recess on April. 30… As he vetoed the bill this week, Hutchinson argued that signing the bill would be “government overreach,” saying that it would be ‘starting to let lawmakers interfere with healthcare and set a standard for legislation overriding healthcare.’.. ‘If this was just to ban gender reassignment then I would support it, but those who are taking treatment are not grandfathered in, this is not the right path to put them on,’ Hutchinson added. He said that fewer than 200 children are using the treatments in Arkansas… Pro-transgender organizations such as Arkansas-based group inTRANSitive had initiated a campaign to pressure Hutchinson into vetoing the bill. Some progressive groups have also opposed the passage of the bill… The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced it would file a lawsuit to prevent the law from being enforced.” – Comment: I’m guessing the ACLU will argue that they’re representing the interests of “The Children.”

U.S. Treasury’s Yellen calls for global minimum corporate taxhttps://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-treasury-yellen-tax/u-s-treasurys-yellen-calls-for-global-minimum-corporate-tax-idUSKBN2BS1DE – “U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said on Monday that she is working with G20 countries to agree on a global corporate minimum tax rate to end a ’30-year race to the bottom on corporate tax rates.’.. In prepared remarks to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Yellen said she also would use her participation in International Monetary Fund and World Bank annual meetings this week to advance discussions on climate change, improve vaccine access and encourage countries to support a strong global recovery… Yellen said it was important to make sure governments ‘have stable tax systems that raise sufficient revenues in essential public goods and respond to crises, and that all citizens fairly share the burden of financing government.’.. Separately, a U.S. Treasury official told reporters that it was important to have the world’s major economies on board with a global minimum tax to make it effective.”
