Ireland’s health service has announced that it will transform the country’s biggest sports stadium into a massive drive-thru coronavirus testing site.

Testing at the 80,000 capacity Croke Park Stadium began on Tuesday on an appointment-only basis, AFP reported Wednesday.

On Wednesday, a spokesperson for the Health Service Executive said:

“Croke Park is one of the designated testing centres for north Dublin.”

With its massive football pitch and location in central Dublin, Croke Park is home to and headquarters of Gaelic football and the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA).

Given that no matches will be played at the Dublin venue any time in the near future, the GAA offered the national stadium as a site for drive-thru testing. Once the site is fully operational, it is expected that it will handle an average of eight cars every 15 minutes for seven days a week and 12 hours per day.

On Wednesday, the Department of Health announced that 74 new cases of CoViD-19 had been confirmed in the country, bringing the total number of infections in Ireland to 366, Joe reported. In Dublin alone, there are 129 confirmed cases.

Irish pubs, schools, and universities will be closed until March 29, but it is quite likely that that the closures will last much longer than initially announced.

Gatherings of over 100 people have also been restricted as the government has stressed the need for “social distancing” measures, including working from home.

In a dire warning delivered Tuesday during a St. Patrick’s Day address, Prime Minister Leo Varadkar warned there could 15,000 cases of coronavirus in Ireland by month’s end, and the duration of the crisis could stretch well into the summer.

In the emotional speech, Varadkar said:

“This is a Saint Patrick’s Day like no other.

A day that none of us will ever forget.

“Today’s children will tell their own children and grandchildren about the national holiday in 2020 that had no parades or parties, but instead saw everyone staying at home to protect each other.

In years to come, let them say of us, when things were at their worst, we were at our best.”

Continuing, he warned of the enormous stresses likely to be placed on health professionals, noting:

“This is the calm before the storm—before the surge.

And when it comes—and it will come—never will so many ask so much of so few.”

Ghislaine Maxwell Has Tapes Of Politicians With Children According To A Long Time Friend

Published

What Happened: Christopher Mason, a  TV host and journalist known for his book, “The Art of the Seal” which exposed a price-fixing scandal within the art world that tells the story of elite people who conspired to cheat clients out of millions, has known Ghislaine Maxwell since the 1980s. He has gone on the record and said he was told that Epstein rigged his multiple homes with cameras and kept surveillance tapes of everyone and everything that went on inside of them and that Ghislaine Maxwell, has access to all of this footage. Multiple media outlets are now reporting on this.

Here’s a picture of both of them together.

Mason is not the only one to accuse Epstein of being in the blackmail business. Jeffrey Epstein’s has clear ties to intelligence, there are clear links to U.S. and  Israeli intelligence A recent interview given by a former high-ranking official in Israeli military intelligence has also claimed that Epstein has a  sexual blackmail business, and that the operation was actually an Israeli intelligence operation run for the purposes of entrapping powerful individuals and politicians all over the world.

In an interview with Zev Shalev, former senior executive for Israel’s Directorate of Military Intelligence and CBS News executive producer and award-winning investigative journalist for Narativ, he claimed to have met Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell back in the 1980s and that both Epstein and Maxwell were alreadyworking with Israeli intelligence during that time period. You can read more about that here.

According to the New York Post:

“Ghislaine has always been as cunning as they come. She wasn’t going to be with Epstein all those years and not have some insurance,” the ex-friend told the news outlet….The secret stash of sex tapes I believe Ghislaine has squirrelled away could end up being her get-out-of-jail card if the authorities are willing to trade. She has copies of everything Epstein had. They could implicate some twisted movers and shakers,” the former friend said.

BUT

We must ask ourselves, has she worked something out?  Is this simply a ploy to take down a select individuals that some powerful people want taken down, when it really involves a whole lot more, including  the ones who are using Maxwell to possibly take others down? We will have to see, but it’s obviously a very important question to ask.

Why This Is Important: It’s important because there is already a lot of evidence existing that shows the people who are making major decisions, people within major global organizations like the UN, are making decisions for human beings with regards to all aspects of our life, from health, to education, to medicine and more. Politics and the world of our financial elite is overrun with corruption, deceit, lies, blackmail and more.

We have to ask ourselves, is it really surprising that our world is in the condition it is with regards to environmental issues, and many others, when those who are making major decisions in this category with regards to political policy are actively engaged in such immoral and unethical acts?

These moments that creep into the mainstream also highlight how this type of activity is able to sustain itself for such a long period of time, and that’s simply because these people have access to great power and control nearly everything.

A great example is Cardinal George Pell, who  a couple of years ago became  the highest ranking Vatican official to ever be convicted of child sexual abuse. Of course, he has now been freed from jail after Australia’s highest court overturned his conviction, but did you know that he himself established The Diocesan Commission Into Sexual Abuse?  This is a common theme. The ones who we go to combat these problems are often, themselves involved.

This is a very deep topic, and if you want to learn more about it you can watch our interview with Anneke Lucas, an author, speaker, advocate for child sex trafficking victims, and founder of the non-profit organization Liberation Prison Yoga, and creator of the Unconditional Model.

Her work is based off her 30-year journey to restore her mental and physical wellbeing after surviving some of the worst atrocities known to humankind before the age of 12. Sold as a young child into a murderous pedophile network by her family, she was rescued after nearly six years of abuse and torture.

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, we have to ask ourselves, do we really want to continue to follow, obey and take direction, orders and mandates from people who clearly don’t have the best interests of humanity at heart? Do we want to continue to hand our power over to a ‘leader’ who is made out to be the one who can really make change, or will we take back our power, our own consciousness and refuse to participate in a system that really leaves us no choice? What we have is the illusion of democracy, were not actually living in one.

Forget Drive-Ins: Paris To Host Floating Movie Theater With Socially Distant Boats On Seine River

The waters of the Seine river in Paris, France, will host an innovative floating movie theater where people can enjoy films alongside their families.

(TMU) – Earlier this year as the COVID-19 pandemic began sinking its hooks into the world, drive-in movie theatres were a huge topic of surging interest, with many people clamouring for a safe and socially-distanced outlet for entertainment outside the home.

The idea of reviving the old past-time caught on so well that drive-in theatres popped up across the U.S., with many restaurants turning their parking lots into drive-in cinemas.

And now, with summer approaching, there may be no better idea than taking a nice swim to watch your favourite films.

Next week, the waters of the Seine river in Paris, France, will host an innovative floating movie theatre where people can enjoy films alongside their families from socially distant boats.

Dubbed the “Cinéma sur l’Eau” (cinema on the water) the spectacular event will make its debut on July 18 to celebrate the beginning of Paris Plages, an annual event organized by the city that creates temporary beaches along the Seine and Bassin de Villette every summer.

The free screening will begin at 7:30pm next Saturday as 38 boats, each holding four to six people, will disembark for the event. Each boat will be exclusive to families and closed to strangers in order to comply with physical distancing guidelines, while an additional 150 people will watch from deck chairs that will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, according to Broadway World.

Paris residents will also have an opportunity to win seats on the boats through July 15 through an online raffle.

Viewers will be treated to “Le Grand Bain (Sink or Swim), a 2018 comedy about a group of men who form a synchronized swimming team. Audiences will also have a chance to watch A Corona Story, a short film about the coronavirus pandemic that won a contest organized by movie theatre chain Mk2, which also organized the event alongside ice cream company Häagen-Daz.

“Le Cinéma sur l’Eau” is being held to celebrate the recent reopening of French movie theatres after a prolonged lockdown. Last month, the theatres were able to reopen at 50% capacity after being shut down for three months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

I only have one word – finally!” Emmanuel Delesse, a director of cinema chain UGC, told AFP after the theatres opened in late June.

Paris cinema  5 Caumartin opened with “Les Parfums” (The Perfumes), a French comedy about a prima donna perfume “nose” who devises a number of new fragrances.

Watching series on Netflix is one thing, but the cinema is something else,” said the film’s star Emmanuelle Devos.

As is the case in Hollywood, film studios in France have delayed releasing some of their most high-profile films while film production crews have also faced setbacks in tackling new projects.

However, French cinephiles are expected to flock to theatres to watch some of the classics of cinéma français.

“France is at a real advantage in the world for this reopening because, [of France’s] 6,000 screens, 40% of them are art houses, which means that French people are more than happy to pay for, quote unquote, old films,” said FRANCE 24 culture editor Lisa Nesselson.

Maxwell Has Videos Of Two “Prominent US Politicians” With Underage Girls, Friend Says

A former jewel thief and friend of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell said that they showed him recordings of “two prominent US politicians having sex with minors.”

(TMU) – A former Jewel thief who uses the pseudonym William Steel says that he knew both Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell personally and that they showed him recordings of “two prominent US politicians having sex with minors.”

He said that the pair forced him to watch the videos to prove that they had power, and that they bragged about “owning” influential figures and world leaders.

Steel told The Sun “They wanted to convince me of their power and who they held in their grip. They boasted about ‘owning’ powerful people. I saw videos of very powerful people – celebrities, world figures – in those videos having sex, threesomes, even orgies with minors.”

The former friend also mentioned two ‘high-profile’ American politicians who were in videos with minors.

He said that Maxwell seemed more enthusiastic about showing the videos than Epstein.

“Ghislaine was more into showing me those than Jeff. When you’re in a situation like that, you have to pretend to be non- judgmental. But it was shocking,” he said.

“They wanted to impress me and intimidate me. They were so powerful because of who they knew worldwide,” he added.

Steel is now an author, who wrote a memoir in 2018 titled Sex And The Serial Killer, which was about his relationship with multi-millionaire suspected serial killer Robert Durst.

Steel says that Epstein and Maxwell would regularly buy his stolen jewellery to give as gifts to the young girls that they were abusing.

“None of it was for them. They didn’t need to buy stolen jewellery. They didn’t even need to buy stolen jewellery for the girls, but they did. They would buy it as gifts for girls they were trying to impress or groom,” he explained.

Steel claims that he met Epstein in the mid-1990s at a diamond dealer’s store in Palm Beach.

“We were in the upstairs room at a very high-end diamond dealer, the kind of place where only a few people are allowed in at a time. I was there doing what I do. I was meeting my fence. I saw Jeff with a young girl who looked only about 13 or 14 and he had his hand in the back of her shorts. That’s what first got my attention. She was so young and he was much older. That’s when I knew that he was dirty. I had about 200,000 dollars’ worth of jewellery that I was getting rid of and later I struck up a conversation with him. Me being a cocky young guy from New York City, seeing their arrogance and their wealth — I just looked at it as an opportunity to milk them for what I could,” he recalled.

Steel went on to claim that he and Maxwell became “intimate.”

“I met Ghislaine at some point later and we were intimate a few times. I wouldn’t say it was a relationship — it was all about what she could use me for to help them,” he said.

Steel was quick to clarify that he never had any interactions with any of the underage girls in Epstein’s company.

As we previously reported, other sources have previously indicated that Maxwell has a secret stash of recordings and plans to use the footage as a bargaining tool with prosecutors.

COVID-19: “For People Younger Than 45, The Infection Fatality Rate Is Almost 0%” – Stanford Professor

Published

on

What Happened: John P. A. Ioannidis, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at Stanford University is one of many scientists around the world, and one of several from Stanford University, who has been telling the world that the new coronavirus, so far according to the data, is not as dangerous as it’s being made out to be by mainstream media. For example, earlier on in the pandemic he published an article titled “A fiasco in the making? As the coronavirus pandemic takes hold, we are making decisions without reliable data.“In the article, he argues that there is simply not enough data to make claims about reported case fatality rate. He stated that rates, “like the official 3.4% rate from the World Health Organization, cause horror — and are meaningless.”

This is exactly what these numbers did. In fact, they were the basis and justification for the lockdown.

It turns out he was right. The idea that the infection rate is much larger than previously thought seems to be well accepted and clear in the scientific community, and multiple studies have come out emphasizing the same over the past few months. Not long ago, several academics from the Stanford School of Medicine, including Ioannidis, suggested that COVID-19 has a similar infection fatality rate as seasonal influenza based on the data they found in their study.

In a recent interview with Greek ReporterIoannidis estimated that about 150-300 million or more people have already been infected by COVID-19 around the world, far more than the 10 million documented cases. He warned that “the draconian lockdowns imposed in many countries may have the opposite effect of what was intended.” He told the Greek Reporter that “the lockdown measures have increased the number of people at risk of starvation to 1.1 billion, and they are putting at risk millions of lives.”

He isn’t the only world renowned scientist to call these measures “draconian.” You can see another example here. In fact there are many of them, a large majority of whom have been censored by platforms like YouTube and Facebook. Since when are the expert opinions and research of scientists in this field constantly censored simply because they oppose the views of our federal health regulatory agencies and World Health Organization? Why is there a digital authoritarian “fact-checker” patrolling the internet telling people what is and what isn’t?

Not only are people experiencing huge economic impacts, but it’s also having a health impact. A new article published in the British Medical Journal has suggested that quarantine measures in the United Kingdom as a result of the new coronavirus may have already killed more UK seniors than the coronavirus has during the peak of the virus. You can read more about that here.

Here’s what Ioannidis, had to say about the infection fatality rate now that things have progressed further:

“0.05% to 1% is a reasonable range for what the data tell us now for the infection fatality rate, with a median of about 0.25%. The death rate in a given country depends a lot on the age-structure, who are the people infected, and how they are managed. For people younger than 45, the infection fatality rate is almost 0%. For 45 to 70, it is probably about 0.05-0.3%. For those above 70, it escalates substantially, to 1% or higher for those over 85. For frail, debilitated elderly people with multiple health problems who are infected in nursing homes, it can go up to 25% during major outbreaks in these facilities.” (source)

The idea that the death rate is far lower than original estimates, and even far lower than what the numbers show now seems to be quite obvious. Even CNN recently acknowledged this, only to state that just because it has a low infection fatality rate doesn’t mean that we should get too comfortable. In other words, keep wearing your mask.

Even the CDC recently announced that they may stop calling COVID-19 an “epidemic” due to the remarkably low death rate. You can read more about that here.

Why This Is Important

This all begs the question, are all of the measures that our federal health regulatory agencies forcing us to adopt actually necessary? Are they even good for us? Is this really about the virus, or are we simply having our perception manipulated by big media and powerful people, just as we have with regards to a number of other topics, like ‘the war on terror,’ for example. Why is there so much information showing that masks, for example, should not really be mandatory?

Why have we taken the measures that we’ve taken for this virus, but don’t do it for all of the other severe respiratory viruses that infect and kill millions of people around the world every single year?

For example, did you know that metapneumovirus has been shown to have worldwide circulation with nearly universal infection by age 5? Did you know that outbreaks of metapneumovirus have been well documented every single year, especially in long term care facilities with mortality rates of up to 50%? (pubmed 18820584) Did you know that human metapneumovirus infection results in a large number of hospitalizations of children every single year? Did you know it has a substantial morbidity rate, again in the elderly, but also among children as well? Did you know nearly 1-2 million children every single year die of these types of respiratory illnesses because they lead to acute respiratory illness? Imagine if the infection rates and death numbers were constantly tracked, and put on an easy to access website, mainstream media, radio etc. Imagine if the other coronaviruses and respiratory illnesses that are more severe in some cases, and arguably more infectious in some cases, were subjected to constant monitoring and beamed out to the population every single minute, could you imagine the hysteria that would be created?

At the end of the day, it seems quite clear that this virus is not as dangerous as it’s being made out to be, and again, based on the data, it doesn’t seem to be any more dangerous than what we’ve already been experiencing for years. So again, it begs the question, what’s really going on here, and why have governments used the coronavirus, as Edward Snowden said, the same way they used 9/11? To push more authoritarian measures on the population without their consent?

The number of controversies surrounding the coronavirus is quite revealing. Even people whose deaths are marked as COVID deaths may not have died as a result of the coronavirus. You can read more about that here. This, along with the high infection rate even drives the infection mortality rate lower.

The Takeaway

Never in history have we experienced such a collective distrust for health authorities that we rely on to provide us with truthful information. As a result, more people are starting to think for themselves instead of believing what they are told. The coronavirus, just like 9/11, is really contributing to another massive shift in consciousness, where even more people become aware of the deceit corruption, as well as the politicization of science that seems to plague our world and waking up to the realization that our world is not how it’s been presented to us, and that our perception of major events always seems to be subjected to high levels of manipulation.

We are the ones that choose the system we live in. We are the ones that continue to play the game every four years and elect a ‘leader.’ All this does is reinforce as a system we no longer want to play with. Is it time to stop giving our power away to others, and begin organizing in another fashion? Is our current political model truly serving us to thrive? If billions of us can together and follow instructions for a global lockdown, imagine what else we could do on a collective level for other important issues…
