THE WAR IS HOTTING UP
Smears increase on those trying to speak up as more cracks appear
By Mark Sharman
AN adage of war is that the closer one gets to the target the heavier the defensive flak. So should we be encouraged that the battle for truth over Covid ‘vaccines’ has intensified?
With 2023 barely under way, we have seen:
The Conservatives banish Andrew Bridgen from their ranks for raising safety questions in Parliament. He’s now threatening legal action against Matt Hancock for defamation.
American lawyer Robert Kennedy Jr start legal action against the BBC/Trusted News Initiative for conspiring to censor factual information..
Big Pharma promoter Bill Gates call for even greater censorship for anyone who questions vaccinations – timed, of course, just ahead of the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos.
Dr Aseem Malhotra ‘hijacking’ BBC News with his call for the ‘vaccine’ roll-out to be suspended.
Leaving Gates aside (as we will doubtless hear plenty more from this unelected world influencer over the next few days) the other three are significant milestones.
ANDREW BRIDGEN, MP for North-west Leicestershire, made a passionate speech in the House last month, calling for a complete suspension of Covid jabs based on what he described as “robust data of significant harms and little ongoing benefit”. A later tweet, now deleted, said it (Covid ‘vaccination’ harm) was the biggest crime since the Holocaust.
Not only did the Conservatives remove the whip from Mr Bridgen but, in an almost despairing attempt to smear him, Matt Hancock used Prime Minister’s Question Time to brand his comments anti-semitic, as well as anti-science and a conspiracy theory. Hancock was backed by Rishi Sunak.
Accordingly, the BBC and other media outlets falsely reported that Bridgen had compared jab damage to the Holocaust, when in fact he said it was the biggest crime since the Holocaust.
It may have been an unfortunate choice of words, but in no way was it anti-semitic, as confirmed by support he received from Jewish communities, including Norman Fenton, Professor Emeritus, Queen Mary University of London, whose father was a Holocaust survivor.
Now Mr Bridgen is challenging Matt Hancock to withdraw his comments.
It seems clear that Bridgen’s campaign is hitting a nerve. While he asks why shouldn’t an MP raise genuine concerns on behalf of the public, the BBC prints and tweets pieces in an attempt to discredit him, including unproven and unquantifiable figures on jab effectiveness. He insists his loss of the Conservative whip will only make him more determined.
The BBC, meanwhile, still refuses to acknowledge that Covid jabs could have anything to do with the alarming rise in excess deaths, which are becoming harder to explain as the numbers grow, particularly in young people. It beggars belief that the jabs are not included on the list of potential suspects, despite growing evidence from scientific institutions around the world.
The Corporation may, however, face some explaining of its own, over its participation in the Trusted News Initiative (TNI), a partnership with other major media outlets and Big Tech social media companies which is now accused of suppressing accurate news content.
ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR, chairman and chief litigation counsel for Children’s Health Defense has filed a lawsuit making antitrust and constitutional claims against the TNI, with the BBC among the named defendants.
The lawsuit, filed in the US District Court for the Northern District of Texas-Amarillo, alleges that media outlets partnered with several Big Tech firms to “collectively censor online news,” including stories about Covid-19 and the 2020 US presidential election that were not aligned with official narratives regarding those issues.
The lawsuit’s executive summary states: “The TNI exists to, in its own words, ‘choke off’ and ‘stamp out’ online news reporting that the TNI or any of its members peremptorily deems ‘misinformation.’
“TNI members have targeted and suppressed completely accurate online reporting by non-mainstream news publishers concerning both Covid-19 (on matters including treatments, immunity, lab leak, vax injury and lockdowns/mandates) and US elections (such as the Hunter Biden laptop story).”
The lawsuit also alleges: “By their own admission, members of the [TNI] have agreed to work together, and have in fact worked together, to exclude from the world’s dominant Internet platforms rival news publishers who engage in reporting that challenges and competes with TNI members’ reporting on certain issues relating to Covid-19 and US politics.
“While the ‘Trusted News Initiative’ publicly purports to be a self-appointed ‘truth police’ extirpating online ‘misinformation,’ in fact it has suppressed wholly accurate and legitimate reporting in furtherance of the economic self-interest of its members.”
The developments follow revelations from Twitter, and in the legal case Missouri v Biden, that US Federal Agencies were colluding with media and Big Tech companies over editorial content.
Kennedy Jr said: “Both Democracy and public health rely upon transparency and the unimpeded flow of information. The role of the press in democracy is to oppose all efforts at censorship and to maintain a posture of fierce, inquisitional skepticism toward government and other aggregations of power.
“BBC has betrayed its heroic role as a defender of free speech and a speaker of truth to power for bootlicking subservience to vested interests, a suppressor of dissent and a tool of totalitarianism.”
The BBC has yet to comment.
FINALLY, the BBC’s resistance to any whisper of harm from Covid-19 jabs was spectacularly pierced by Dr Aseem Malhotra, the London cardiologist who has been campaigning for their suspension.
He appeared on the BBC News to discuss statins and heart disease, but seized the opportunity to warn of Covid ‘vaccine’ harm and repeat his claims that the roll-out should be halted pending independent analysis.
It was a significant breakthrough on mainstream media and caught the presenter off-guard; as a TV professional myself I can imagine the angst in the control room. And God help the researcher who booked Aseem.
Needless to say, there is outrage in MSM:
The war is hotting up.
