Vaccines are the disease

You couldn't make this up. Vaccines are being "deployed" in Syria to combat vaccine induced polio arising from an earlier vaccination program. To make matters worse, they are using the same type of vaccine...

UK Column News - 12th October 2017 (47 minute video)

The broadcast also covers the folding of UK military forces into EU/NATO and the loss of control of our armed forces. To those who are "anti-war" this may be viewed as a "good thing" but in reality we're handing the tools of our own destruction to the lunatics who run the asylum.

The Stasi are coming...

UK Column ran another powerful, insightful broadcast on Tuesday highlighting the use of mental health as cover to train a million "thought police" to inform on their neighbours, colleagues, friends etc. 

StasiOne of its main tasks was spying on the population, mainly through a vast network of citizens turned informants, and fighting any opposition by overt and covert measures, including hidden psychological destruction of dissidents...

The Dutch, particularly the young, are quick to recognise threats to their freedom and are using constitutional provisions for direct democracy to fight back - they can teach the rest of us a thing or two.

We all need to sharpen our game in spotting the moves to close down dissent and shepherd humanity into final submission - the history is there to see and if we look beyond media of the kakistocracy, there is the evidence to show where we're headed...

Unless we talk to the "other".

Guardian of what, exactly?

Daily Pickings has often highlighted the mendacity of the BBC and referred to other media from time to time. The UK's Guardian newspaper deserves special mention because it is relied on by those who regard themselves as anti-establishment - oh folly! The Guardian is yet another propaganda mouthpiece for the Structural Elite agenda; Vanessa Beeley revealed an example of the depths of the Guardian's duplicity and hypocrisy during Monday's UK Column broadcast.

The "white helmets" are a PR scam to obscure NATO's role in supporting ISIS and other affiliated Syrian opposition terrorist groups. The BBC, Guardian et al continue to peddle their fabricated illusions to fool the gullible and the ignorant. But as more people look beyond what's put in front of them on a daily basis, they are beginning to notice the glaring contradictions - the media and establishment are getting desperate, trying to point blame elsewhere (usually Russia) and close down independent voices but UK Column, 21st Century Wire and others won't stop exposing their lies. 

Meanwhile, paedophilia and sexual abuse just won't "lie down" as the Harvey Weinstein revelations hit the headlines. But as Daily Pickings has often observed, these individual cases are the tip of the iceberg and don't begin to reveal the depravity of those who rule - the kakistocracy.

"Breaking news" is storytelling

It's no revelation that media's purpose or effect is to divide, distract and divert attention from the real agendas afoot but it doesn't hurt to be reminded now and again.

The "latest" news should always be viewed with circumspection - in fact, it's better not to watch "breaking news" at all but await a more sober assessment for which people have done some research to ascertain some facts to combat the predictive programming narratives. The Corbett Report is one source of more nuanced, fact based news, as is UK Column. The BBC and others are just "Storytelling".
