together: Sign the Declaration

In the UK, we enjoy many hard-won liberties and rights, all fought for and defended by our ancestors. These rights are not only fundamental to our understanding of democracy, they are rights we believe all humans should have.

Some of us are lucky enough to have been born with these rights, but others have experienced the perils of segregation, suppression, and surveillance first hand.

However with vaccine passports in the picture and digital IDs under consideration, some of our hard-won rights are now under serious threat.

Will Joe Biden’s vaccination requirements hold up in court?

The big policy that Biden has so far declined to impose is a national vaccination mandate. There’s a reason: Legal experts said that doing so would have been pretty clearly unconstitutional.

This is a „bright line,“ said Lawrence O. Gostin, faculty director of Georgetown University Law Center’s O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law. „States can mandate vaccines for the general population. The federal government cannot.

„The one thing I admire about this president is the fact that we are always going to put people above politics.

The Vaccine Mandate Assault on the Common Good

Progressives, whose various echo chambers have led them to believe COVID is a modern-day apocalypse despite a 98 to 99 percent (at least) survival rate, predictably march in lockstep against bans on vaccine mandates.

Then They Came for the Globalists

(23.3.2018) Fortunately, the lexicography experts in the corporate media and the Anti-Defamation League cleared that up for me earlier this month.

They are simply Nazi code words for “the Jews.” There is actually no such thing as “globalism,” or “global capitalism,” or “transnational capitalism,” or “supranational quasi-governmental entities” like the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organization, the European Commission, and the European Central Bank … or, OK, sure, there are such entities, but there is no legitimate reason to discuss them, or write about them, or even casually mention them, and anyone who does is definitely a Nazi.
