  1. If ID is going to be needed to enter shops in the future, here's some Problem-Reaction-Solution: The Guardian "Major UK retail bosses plead for staff protection as ‘violent criminals empty stores’" Sarah Butler Sunday, 1 October 2023 "Almost 90 retail leaders, including the bosses of Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Boots and WH Smith, have written to the government demanding action on rising retail crime, in which violent criminals are “emptying stores”. "The retailers, who also include the bosses of Aldi, Primark and Superdrug, call for the creation of a new UK-wide aggravated offence of assaulting or abusing a retail worker – as already exists in Scotland – which would carry tougher sentences and require police to record all incidents of retail crime and allow the allocation of more resources. "“The police consistently tell us that a lack of data about these offences means they have no visibility about the nature or scale of the issue,” the letter says. "The 88 retail bosses have asked for a meeting with the home secretary, Suella Braverman, to discuss the issue after a meeting with the minister for crime, Chris Philp, led to the promise to develop an action plan. "The call comes after retailers, including the Co-op and John Lewis, highlighted what they said was a worsening issue. A survey of members of the British Retail Consortium (BRC), which represents all the major chains, found levels of shoplifting in 10 of the biggest cities had risen by an average of 27% this year. "Meanwhile, the police’s own data for one major retailer shows that forces failed to respond to 73% of serious retail crimes that were reported, while 44% of retailers in the BRC’s annual crime survey rated the police response as “poor” or “very poor”. https://uk.yahoo.com/news/major-uk-retail-bosses-plead-050034692.html
  2. "GB News" criticises the BBC: "BBC admits bias: Broadcaster says it 'should have tried harder' after scandalous Newsnight debate" "The BBC has admitted that it “could have done better” in its bid to offer due impartiality in a Newsnight discussion surrounding GB News. "On an episode of the programme earlier this week, Tory MP Caroline Nokes called for the People’s Channel to be “taken off air” amid a row sparked by comments made by Laurence Fox on Dan Wootton Tonight." "In a discussion regarding the future of GB News on BBC Newsnight, Tory MP Caroline Nokes, broadcaster Adam Boulton and presenter of ‘When it Hits the Fan’, David Yelland, each made disparaging remarks about the channel’s operation, with two calling for it to be shut down. "In an email to GB News presenter and Conservative MP Philip Davies, Newsnight editor Stewart Maclean admitted the discussion would have been “fuller and more balanced” had the BBC found someone to “robustly defend the channel”." https://www.msn.com/en-gb/entertainment/tv/bbc-admits-bias-broadcaster-says-it-should-have-tried-harder-after-scandalous-newsnight-debate/ar-AA1hsHM0?ocid=msedgntp&cvid=81b2011a38d544049e34d8cb24712d90&ei=49
  3. If Brexit hadn't happened, David probably would have got banned anyway, as would anyone outside Europe.
  4. Forget global boiling for the UK: "Temperatures across UK could plummet as terrifying Gulf Stream warning issued" "Temperatures in the UK are feared to plummet in coming years as scientists confirmed the Gulf Stream is weakening faster than believed." "The crucial system is the current of warm water flowing from the tip of Florida across the Atlantic towards Europe and responsible for much of the UK's average temperatures. Without it, the mercury across the continent would drop with the UK alone falling by at least 10C. Now, scientists have confirmed the Gulf Stream has slowed by 4% over the last few decades and are almost certain it is not down to random chance. The findings are the first confirmed evidence of significant changes." https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/temperatures-across-uk-could-plummet-as-terrifying-gulf-stream-warning-issued/ar-AA1hrz40?ocid=msedgntp&cvid=7cfe4e28c41740dfae34cdb16cac1c0d&ei=125
  5. Terrible solution - "The Fair Wage Party" A new national party oriented around a minimum wage and. maximum wage that are the optimum distance from each other so as not to annoy too much both the high and low income earners.
  6. Here is the response from the Schengen Visa website. https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/news/dutch-court-upholds-its-decision-to-ban-conspiracy-theorist-david-icke-from-entering-schengen-area/
  7. Marianna Spring was on BBC3, presenting a programme on TIK TOK, which of course she wants to be regulated more tightly. "The Tik Tok Effect" (September 21st 2023). On the BBC's website she wrote: "Inside Tiktok's real-life frenzies - from riots to false murder accusations" Published 20 September 2023 By Marianna Spring BBC disinformation and social media correspondent "TikTok is driving online frenzies that encourage anti-social behaviour in the real world, a BBC Three investigation reveals. Ex-employees say the issue is not being tackled for fear of slowing the growth of the social media app's business. These frenzies - where TikTok drives disproportionate amounts of engagement to some topics - are evidenced by interviews with former staffers, app users and BBC analysis of wider social media data. They have then led to disruption and disorder in everyday life. The BBC's investigation found that TikTok's algorithm and design means people are seeing videos which they wouldn't normally be recommended - which, in turn, incentivise them to do unusual things in their own videos on the platform." Spring interviewed JEFF ALLEN, a co-founder of the INTEGRITY INSTITUTE, which has numerous ex-Facebook/Meta employees and other social media insiders. They claim: "We protect the social internet." "We advance the theory and practice of protecting the social internet, powered by our community of integrity professionals." "The Integrity Institute Oath - To join, every member of the Integrity Institute needs to do a few things. One of them is to affirm the Integrity Oath. We want to see a future where this would serve as a hippocratic oath for all integrity workers. It is a lightweight, guiding ethical framework that we hold ourselves to, and we challenge everyone in the industry to do so as well." Dec 19, 2022 "For the next 30 months, Integrity Institute will be part of the consortium selected by the European Commission to detect, analyze, and counter disinformation campaigns across the European Union." Integrity Institute Supporters $1,000,000 or more - The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation $500,000 to $999,999 -The John S. and James L.

  8. Jeroen Pols @JeroenPols David Icke’s ban on entry to 26 Schengen countries will remain in place, the judge ruled yesterday [September 27th 2023]. The aim is to protect the democratic constitutional state and prominent persons, administrators and implementers of government policy. The judge accuses Icke of characterizing Rutte as someone who governs the Netherlands for the benefit of the WEF and as an enemy. Find the ten differences with the former GDR: Staatsfeindliche Hetze [anti-state agitation] was a criminal offense and statements aimed at damaging the socialist state or the social order of the German Democratic Republic were prohibited, as were negative statements about authorities or other representatives of the state. David commented: "Not a word in the media or ‘alternative’ media about my possibly indefinite ban from 26 European countries [plus Australia] being confirmed by a Dutch court. Maybe I should get demonetised (not banned, demonetised) from YouTube and then all hell will break loose and the ‘alternative’ ‘big names’ will scream their condemnation. Oh, but that happened to me in 2018 and YouTube deleted me in April 2020. Even in the often fake ‘alternative’ WHO you are is what matters clearly – not primarily the universal deletion of freedom." me - I don't think a protest march in London will overturn this decision.
  9. Chris Packham was back on Channel 4 again, in the wake of his Channel 4 documentary, though this was him being interviewed by Channel 4's daily News programme that today (Sept 27th) was doing an 'environmental special' programme. Packham spoke alongside the former Tory 'environmentalist' ZAC GOLDSMITH, who had recently resigned in protest from the Conservative government over its' green policies. Goldsmith - like his brother - married into the Rothschild family. Packham - who has not always supported Goldsmith - seemed on his side today, nodding frequently in agreement.
  10. For me, the Adam and Eve story is distorted symbolism. Decoding it, I conclude that it represents the creation of our holographic realm with an unnatural form of creation, with Adam and Eve symbolising the new and unnatural form of creation that overthrows the old natural order. God appears to be a hypocrite, as he forbids Adam and Eve to do what they've been designed to do, then does a u-turn and says to mankind to go forth and multiply, once outside the Garden of Eden. But this hypocrisy masks God's complicity in the whole affair. He arranges it all.
  11. He doesn't say that we don't exist, just that this realm is not the only one. If anything, we need love here more than we need it elsewhere.
  12. This sounds like NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming).
  13. Actually, his conspiracy research was preceeded by his foray into channelled information, crop circles, etc. Surely you must have realised this from the later books, as he usually summarises those early years. So what exactly does he say in the dream that you disagree with?
  14. An X with a line above it has been a logo for THE LONG NOW FOUNDATION, founded in 1996 by globalists. X is a representation of 10,000 in Roman Numerals. The foundation has several ongoing projects, including a 10,000-year clock known as the Clock of the Long Now. https://longnow.org/people/board/
  15. Yet another 'dodgy' conspiracy theorist to destroy what's left of our tattered public reputation.
  16. Chris Packham has known Sir David Attenborough for years. Packham first met Attenborough as a teenager when he won a photography competition. Their paths crossed again while Packham was working as a cameraman for the BBC's NHU (the Natural History Unit) before he became a TV presenter. From 1983 to 1985, he worked on Attenborough's "The Living Planet" series and "The Living Isles" for the BBC.
  17. X PRIZE Foundation In 1994, PETER DIAMANDIS (cofounder with RAY KURZWEIL of SINGULARITY UNIVERSITY) founded the X PRIZE Foundation and was its' chairman and CEO. The X PRIZE was created to fund and operate a $10 million incentive competition intended to inspire a new generation of private passenger-carrying spaceships. The prize was announced in 1996 and won in 2004, by Mojave Aerospace Ventures, a team run by famed aviation designer Burt Rutan and funded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. Since inception, the foundation has launched other prizes. The X PRIZE Foundation's board of trustees included Elon Musk, Larry Page (Google co-founder), Ray Kurzweil, James Cameron, Ratan Tata (Tata Group), Arianna Huffington. On Earth Day, 2021, Peter H. Diamandis and Elon Musk launched the largest incentive prize in history — $100M to develop carbon removal technologies at scale. Carbon Removal was aimed at tackling the biggest threat facing humanity, supposedly - fighting climate change and rebalancing Earth’s carbon cycle. Funded by Elon Musk and the Musk Foundation.‎
  18. Good spot. That photo is also in the BBC's "Radio Times" magazine for an interview with him about the documentary. The Suffragettes' law-breaking and anti-apartheid terrorism in South Africa were examples that he gave of 'ethical' forms of rebellion.
  19. I wonder if this complements the devolution of power to regional authorities, e.g. the Mayor of the West Midlands.
  20. BBC nature presenter and vocal environmentalist Chris Packham is on Channel 4 on Wednesday 20th September, presenting a documentary advocating breaking the law to protest against the oil industry, et al. "Is it Time to Break the Law?" (9pm)
  21. Strictly speaking, in the Wogan interview he didn't explicitly say that he was the son of God, but it just sounded like he said it because he answered "yes" to Wogan's convoluted question.
  22. I haven't got the book but I heard him talking about it and propose that the human mind is a form of Artificial Intelligence. Maybe I'm misinterpreting him, but I don't agree with that conclusion as it seems to suggest that we - as humans - are like computers. If that were true, more people would pass their exams, amongst other things. Also, how are we able to achieve 'higher consciousness' if our human minds are AI? It seems too simplistic to reduce our minds to AI.
  23. In August 2023, YouTube adopted WHO's policies on medical misinformation. https://greenmedinfo.com/blog/whos-take-over-youtube-portends-orwellian-medical-dystopia
  24. Kennedy made a career as an environmentalist and environmental lawyer, e.g., he was Senior Attorney for the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council), an organisation founded with money from the Ford Foundation, and of which an early board member was LAURANCE ROCKEFELLER Junior, who became a trustee. A NRDC co-founder was James Gustave Speth, a Rhodes Scholar; founder of the WORLD RESOURCES INSTITUTE; Administrator of the UN Development Programme. Kennedy and Arianna Huffington (“The Huffington Post”) teamed up in 2003 for a green campaign that challenged American car companies to clean up their act: “The Detroit Project”, whose co-founders were Arianna Huffington and 3 Jewish environmental activists.
  25. The Annenberg Foundation (via one of its' offshoots) is the primary funder of Factcheck.org ( also funded by Facebook). Another Annenberg outfit - the Annenberg Institute - received almost a million dollars from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
