UK: New legislation for COVID 19 Control of Disease Act

Simon Platt made this comment:

Some mistakes here.

It’s not a new law. It dates from, er, 1984. We all – nearly all – missed it before now.

If what this fellow cites is accurate, it won’t lead to mandatory vaccination. First, you don’t give vaccines to people who already have the disease. Secondly, I would argue that vaccines are not medication. But I don’t know the legal position.

That doesn’t mean it’s not a bad law, or that we need not be on our guard for something even worse. But we shouldn’t be distracted by this.

More Soviet like abuse of rights by UK authorities

The only objection should be that this man was far far too polite and respectful to authoritarians who have zero legal rights to enter his home

Keep yesterday’s video in mind. The UK police have now taken on Soviet like powers with Soviet like reasons for abusing those powers. Americans, now you KNOW why you have a first amendment.

Islamophobia now an offence that warrants arrest and handcuffs in the UK

Two stories on Jihad Watch.

UK: Jewish conservative’s door broken down, he is handcuffed and jailed on suspicion of “Islamophobia”

On Tuesday the 22nd October, at approximately 07:15, whilst I was getting my four year old child ready for school, there was a rather aggressive knock at my front door. I opened the door and found a whole bunch of police officers who wanted me to come out and ‘talk to them’. Knowing what the modern day British police are like in too many cases, which is thuggish and dishonest, I shut the door in their faces. The police do not turn up mob handed merely to have ‘a chat’. Instead I picked up the handset for my entryphone, which is remotely recorded, and spoke to the officer’s via that method.

 

I politely requested that they state the reason why they were at my front door and they said ‘we just want to talk’ and ‘you must come outside to speak’. They refused my request that I would speak to them via the window and insisted that I come out. Whilst this was going on I was watching what was happening on CCTV, the footage of which is now secured off site. I could see at least six police officers swarming around my front garden and to my back garden to which they had gained access. There were I observed, four officers in the front and two in the back.

Please read the total story over at Jihad Watch.

This is quite a ratcheting up of totalitarianism in the United Kingdom.

More censorship in Europe. An article from Jihad Watch on electronic censorship

Below I will reproduce the entire post of the article, as there isn’t much point is just linking to it as all the people who need to see it obviously will not be. But there are things that need to be added beyond the mere technical. That will be at the end.

Also a mirror of the post in full can be read here, which should be able to be seen world-wide at the moment.

We constantly see emails and tweets, “I can’t see the articles when I click on the links in your Daily Digest.”

Lately, we’ve been getting even more of these than we usually do. Here’s why. In my post here from last June, I reported that three major Internet service providers listed as blocking this site:

We are now seeing a new block by Sky, one of the largest internet providers in the UK, added to the list. Mind you, this list consists only of providers that disclose their censorship. Many do not.

“Weapons”? This is a new false charge, totally unfounded. We don’t promote or advertise weapons, the purpose of this site is clear in the meta data: Jihad Watch is dedicated to “exposing the role that Islamic jihad theology and ideology play in the modern global conflicts.”

Clearly this censorship is politically motivated. For whatever reason, the providers don’t want the truth about jihad violence and Sharia to get out. But there is a way around this censorship, and it’s quite simple: change your DNS servers by using https://use.opendns.com/ or https://1.1.1.1/, or better yet, using a VPN such as FreeDome.

I have blogged about this before, and many of the responses were really not helpful: “But I can see the site,” or, “I was blocked by Facebook.” All that may be true, but it is not the point. The point is that legitimate commentary is being blocked by the people who literally supply the Internet and how this can be easily circumvented. This is not just going on in the UK, I just have better documentation at hand for how it is being done in that country.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is an organization that is meant to protect these right of access and to combat such censorship, but it has abandoned us. Please use the contact page to ask them why, politely, calmly, and respectfully.

You can also check which of your other favorite sites are censored here.

Along with the Google bias that is well documented, this censorship will be the death of everything we hold dear if it isn’t challenged and defeated. This is not a matter of your right to say “nuke Mecca” on Facebook; this is the prevention of legitimate criticism of a destructive, inhumane agenda from seeing light of day, and although what is happening is widespread and growing, it is still not well understood. If you encounter someone who can no longer access Jihad Watch, please pass on to him or her this information about how to beat the blocks.


While the article is important as it offers a work around to the problem of the current state of informational-totalitarianism that is now infecting the West as a whole, it is in its own way a form of submission to it.

This is what could be called, “Technical Leapfrog”. 

The state invents a way to stop you from getting information which interferes with its planned engineering of society and not in your interests. You find a way around that with a fix. You feel clever for a moment, but in effect you are now committing a kind of crime where it was your actual right the day before.

While it may not be an actual crime on the books yet, we already see that the state and law enforcement has pretty much abandoned the entire history of all jurisprudence except where it is convenient to enforce the narrative, and harass or otherwise destroy people’s lives for having the wrong opinions or questioning basic biology as one example.

So the next move in technical leapfrog could be where the state finds a more effective way to block sites that contain evidence that the narrative is inaccurate or against the interests of the electorate, or more likely, they will come to your home and ask threatening questions about your use of technology to bypass censors.

And while you did not break a law to access Jihad Watch, the man who tweeted out a limerick about ‘transgenders’(single quotes because generally speaking we do not believe there is any such thing outside of a tiny tiny fraction of biological abnormalities) also did not break any laws but had the authorities place warnings at his place of work that he may be a threat to the LGBTQ community for his wrong-think.

Other things were done to him that are tantamount to a state punishment without the benefit of any inconvenient democratic procedure like a trial or lawyer or those pesky facts.
People who use SKY or any other ISP that blocks sites without your knowledge or content must get phone calls from you, the paying client, and if they do not change the policy, change ISPs. You may even have to settle for poorer service and less speed.
But that is a pretty small sacrifice compared to having the state determine what you can see. Especially when it is true.
“The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.
It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the State.”

RT banned from attending ‘press freedom conference’ in the UK

This seems like a good time to restore the video of the RT presentation at OSCE last year. I find RT’s presentation fits the facts, and very often their reporting is far closer to an accurate representation of the facts in many cases than is the socialist media, BBC, CBC etc.

UK among the worst in western Europe for press freedom

(I would like to have a close look at the metric used to determine this. The UK, stunningly and at the moment, has far more press freedom than Canada does. But that does not mean it has press freedom. Its like saying Poland had more freedom than the Czech Republic during the Cold War. But no one outside of the Soviet Union’s Iron Curtain save George Orwell seemed to understand how little freedom there was behind it at all.)

Latest global ranking places Britain behind Uruguay, Samoa and Chile for restrictions on reporters

The UK has one of the worst environments for press freedom in western Europe, according to a global ranking that places Britain below the likes of Uruguay, Samoa, and Chile for restrictions on reporters as they seek to hold power to account.

 

Reporters Without Borders, which campaigns for journalistic freedoms, said the UK ranked 40th out of 180 countries on its annual World Press Freedom Index, leaving it ranked between Trinidad & Tobago and Burkina Faso.

 

The campaigning organisation cited proposals to introduce tougher press regulation, the government’s campaign to limit encryption on services such as WhatsApp, and restrictions by Labour and the Conservatives on journalists’ access to politicians during the 2017 general election as evidence of a “heavy-handed” approach towards the media in the UK.

(This was April 25th, 2018. Depending on how one views the events surrounding Tommy Robinson, I would think that ranking would now drop quite a bit. Somewhere approaching Turkey.)

Another RT article on the ban:

RT’s ban from media freedom conference shows British irony is alive and well

Britain’s Foreign Office can’t keep its diplomatic secrets, but it has managed to keep its sense of irony, and banned RT from attending a conference on media freedom.

 

A spokeswoman told British

media: “We have not accredited RT or Sputnik because of their active role in spreading disinformation.”  

The accusation of ‘disinformation’ is the exclusive view of the Foreign Office, because it’s worth remembering that while RT has been censured by OFCOM (like every other broadcaster in Britain), it still operates freely under a license from the broadcasting watchdog, so this claim of disinformation is at best subjective.

 

After it was prevented from attending the Global Conference for Media Freedom: London 2019, RT replied:

“It takes a particular brand of hypocrisy to advocate for freedom of press while banning inconvenient voices and slandering alternative media.”

(TR and especially Sputnik tend to tell truths about events that interfere with the deliberate Media coverup on Islamic and migrant crimes which is the lynchpin of the government media complex. There are likely many places where the rules can be found. Here is a short list:

Denying the narrative of moderate Vs. Islamic ‘extremism’ is now a jail-able offence

Below, an excerpt of the BBC spin of the event:

A former deputy leader of Britain First has been sentenced to 180 hours community service over a speech she made in Belfast.

 

Jayda Fransen, 33, was found guilty of stirring up hatred during a speech about Islam in August 2017.

She was also convicted for separate comments at a peace wall in the city.

 

Convicting Fransen, of Moat Avenue in Donaghadee, County Down, a judge said her words were “a general, vehement attack against a religious group”.

The speech was made during the “Northern Ireland Against Terrorism” event two years ago.

The Jihad Watch report, is predictably much more accurate and less spun:

The Speech:

 

UK: Sir Roger Scruton gets the Avi Yemeni treatment on TV, and is dismissed from Conservative party

This is a very important video as now, when we add this to what happened to Avi Yemeni on Comedy Central in Australia, we can safely say this is now policy and not the odd corrupt journalist or show.

Also note: Avi Yemini video his interview which can be seen as one long continuous shot with no edits, and social media has been banning his accounts everywhere so that the evidence of what was done to him on TV does not reach as many eyeballs as the edited fake interview does.

The media today deserves nothing short of contempt. People who agree to do interviews, especially on left wing shows like anything CBC or BBC should be on notice that they deserve what they get.

Many thanks to Paul Weston for this video.

(Scene, parking garage 1984 remake, working title, 2021, Ahmed meets George as George gets into his car:

Ahmed| George, I hear you are going on vacation for a week.

I am telling you this because we have worked together for 10 years.

You should know that when you get back, you will have been on several TV talk shows doing interviews where you are exposed as a racist and islamophobe.

George| But I will be in the Bahamas next week, I have no plans to do shows!

Ahmed| It doesn’t matter. They will create the image of you from existing videos and security camera footage. They would prefer you not be in the country when they make and broadcast these ‘live’ interviews.

George| But Ill have proof of where I was! Photos! Video! My wife’s testimony who will be with me!

Ahmed| Where will you show them? Your social media accounts are being cancelled as we speak. Any attempt to publicize your evidence will lead to hate-speech charges and as you know, in the West now, a judge is not allowed to look at anything which has been sealed as hate-speech.)
