David Icke – Nowhere on Planet Earth will you see a presentation that dot-connects like this one

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 12:33 By david-icke

The World’s Biggest Maverick And Unique Free-Thinker Live all-day at Wembley Arena on October 25th

24 days to go

People are coming from as far away as the United States, Canada, Australia, South Africa and Brazil to this amazing event.

Please note – this event is not being live-streamed

For 25 years David Icke has taken historic levels of ridicule and abuse for calling the world and reality as it really is. Now, with discoveries and world events proving him right by the day, people are at last beginning to see him for what he is – a man way ahead of his time with the guts to tell the truth on a scale and with a depth that no other is prepared to do. 

David will lay it all out in simple dot-connected detail through a whole day at the SSE Arena in Wembley, London, with 1,700 images and videos, plus music, dance and many laughs. 

No-one else on Planet Earth is doing what David Icke is doing, revealing what he is revealing, to expose the world, reality and life itself for what it really is behind the lies and perception deceptions of a rigged and merciless system that has turned humanity into little more than computer terminals on a global grid of monumental deceit. 

This is the last time that David Icke will present an event on this dot-connected scale before heading into other areas of exposure and awakening. 

If you miss it, you’ll regret it for the rest of your life as world events continue to confirm that David Icke is not the ‘nutter’ that the mainstream media portray, but a man who has seen beyond the veil and has the courage to tell the tale. 

AWAKEN, AWAKEN, AWAKEN

ISIS Home Base: Raqqa, Syria or Washington, D.C.?

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 12:24 By david-icke

‘While mainstream media outlets in the Western world continue to shill for the White House and NATO’s plans to destroy the Syrian state and oust its democratically elected president, one notable linchpin of propaganda involves the labeling of Raqqa province in Syria as the “home base” of ISIS.

For instance, in an article and video published by the Wall Street Journal , an attempt was made to present “what it’s like to live” inside the “home base” of ISIS. As one might expect, the video paints a terribly bleak picture of the life of women and Syrians in general. Yet the video, as it has been presented by many mainstream outlets, falsely refers to Raqqa as the “home base” of ISIS.

Still, in this video as well as other reports, ISIS is presented as a shadowy group that appeared out of nowhere. For instance, the WSJ states that Raqqa changed in 2014, when ISIS suddenly overran the city and made it “into their home base.”’

Commentary: How paedophile Peter Morrison escaped exposure

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 12:11 By david-icke

For every editor who reflects on his or her career, there will always be the  frustrating memories of the “ones that got away”.

For me, two of those concern the harrowing subject of child sex abuse, and the haunting spectre of power, celebrity, VIP cover up and the chilling intimidating effect of the Uk’s draconian libel laws.

Israel Prime Minister slams UNHRC criticism of Gaza assualt

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 11:50 By david-icke

‘Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday condemned the UN Human Rights Council for criticizing Israel’s actions in Gaza, saying it encouraged militants to use human shields as a war tactic.

Speaking against Israeli attacks on Gaza sends “a message to terrorists everywhere: use children as human shields,” Netanyahu said, addressing the UN General Assembly in New York, according to Ynet.

“The UNHRC has betrayed its noble mission to protect the innocent. The Human Rights Council has become the Terrorist Rights Council,” he added.’

What are Theresa May’s new ‘extremism disruption orders’?

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 11:31 By david-icke

‘“Theresa May will also announce that the Conservative manifesto will contain pledges to introduce banning orders for extremist groups and extremism disruption orders for extremists who spread hate but do not break existing laws.” Conservative briefing note.

The home secretary’s manifesto plan to silence extremists by banning their access to the web and television is cast far wider than the Islamist “preachers of hate” of tabloid headlines. As David Cameron pointed out, the Conservatives now want to look at the “full spectrum of extremism” and not just the “hard end” of that spectrum that counter-terrorism policy has focused on up to now.

The difference is spelled out in the detail of the policy, where it says that it is intended to catch not just those who “spread or incite hatred” on grounds of gender, race or religion but also those who undertake “harmful activities” for the “purpose of overthrowing democracy”.’

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 11:28 By david-icke

‘A kind-hearted woman with a cellphone captured the horrific scene of a man choking on his own blood, in front of his children, while pinned under three cops.

According to police they were responding to a report of child abuse. Police say when they approached Jeffery Bane, 39, that he appeared to be under the influence of narcotics. They claim that Bane began to fight police officers, kicking one and trying to spit on others.

This is why, police say, they were forced to pepper spray, beat and kneel on Bane as he choked on his own blood pleading for help.’

Ebola In America: The Confirmed Case In Dallas, Texas Could Change Everything

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 11:23 By david-icke

‘The day that many of us hoped would never arrive is here.  Ebola has come to America.  Air travel between the United States and the countries of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone should have been totally shut down except for absolutely essential personnel but it wasn’t.  And now our nation may end up paying a great price as a result.  On Tuesday, the CDC announced that there is a confirmed case of Ebola in Dallas, Texas.

We know that this individual is a male and that he traveled by air from Liberia to Texas on September 19th.  At that time, he was not exhibiting any symptoms.  It is being reported that he started developing symptoms on September 24th and that he sought out treatment two days later.  Incredibly, he was turned away and sent home.  Then on September 28th he went to a hospital again and this time he was admitted for treatment.

That means that he could have potentially been spreading Ebola to others for at least four full days before finally getting treated at a hospital.  Now he is in intensive care at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.  The CDC says that “there is no doubt that we will stop it here” and is promising that “it will not spread widely in this country”.  The CDC better be right on both counts.

On Israel’s little-known concentration and labour camps in 1948-1955

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 10:36 By david-icke

‘Much of the grim and murky circumstances of the Zionist ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in the late 1940s have gradually been exposed over time. One aspect – rarely researched or deeply discussed – is the internment of thousands of Palestinian civilians within at least 22 Zionist-run concentration and labor camps that existed from 1948 to 1955. Now more is known about the contours of this historical crime, due to the comprehensive research by renowned Palestinian historian Salman Abu Sitta and founding member of the Palestinian resource center BADIL Terry Rempel.

The facts are these.’

Filaments falling from the sky in chemtrails …

… Morgellons disease – filaments appearing through the skin and infesting the body.

Cause and effect.

‘To understand their theory, you simply need to look up to the sky and observe. There’s a good chance that you come across one of those “beautiful” white trails left by jet-planes.Conspiracy theory, reactors residues … Individuals and organizations are questioning the discovery of white filaments. A laboratory in Var (French southern region) reveals that these filaments are not natural …

As good Gauls, we still fear that the sky may fall on our heads. This fear is justified, if one refers to the opinion of some individuals and an association, the ACSEIPICA *.

These long trails which run across the sky – which are called chemtrails ** in English – would contain strange whitish and sticky filaments, “airborne filaments” which disperse in nature … or in your garden!’

Did The Winter War Just Begin? Russian Gas Supplies To Europe Plunge 15%, Ukraine Transit Slashed 54%

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 10:18 By david-icke

‘Just a week ago, the Russian energy minister made the first public ‘threat’ of gas supply “throttling” disruptions to Europe but judging by the data that has just been released, it appears the ‘throttling’ has begun. Bloomberg reports that Russian gas supplies to Europe fell 15% year-over-year in Q3 – the most in over two years – as natural gas transit through Ukraine plunged 54% year-over-year.

In 2013, Gazprom sent 60% of its supply via Ukraine pipelines, in August that dropped to 39%, and in September only 34%. Of course, Europe remains confident its storage efforts will buffer any “Winter War” disruptions, as we noted here, but as Citi warned previously, “if colder weather arrives, storage levels will be drained,” and then there is the Spring (and German industry needs).’

West Virginia Plans to Frack Beneath Ohio River, Which Supplies Drinking Water to Millions

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 09:59 By david-icke

‘Nine citizen and environmental groups are urging West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin to reconsider his plans to let companies drill for oil and natural gas underneath the Ohio River, citing concerns that drilling and fracking could contaminate the drinking water supply and increase the risk of earthquakes in the region.

In a letter sent to the governor this month, the coalition of Ohio- and West Virginia-based groups said Tomblin’s Department of Environmental Protection has not proved that it can adequately protect the Ohio River, which supplies drinking water to more than 3 million people. The groups cited drilling currently taking place in a state-designated wildlife area, which some have complained is unacceptably disrupting the nature preserve, and a chemical spill in January that tainted the drinking water supply for 300,000 people.’

US Court Says it’s Okay for Police Departments to Refuse to Hire Someone who is Too Smart

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 09:39 By david-icke

‘Ever wonder why cops yell “quit resisting” as they beat a person who’s not resisting? Or why they shoot people who pose no threat? Maybe the answer is right in front of us.

The Wonderlic Cognitive Ability Test is a popular group intelligence test used to assess the aptitude of prospective employees for learning and problem-solving in a range of occupations. Throughout both the U.S. and Canada, many police forces require candidates to take this test as one of the qualifications prior to being hired.

Study Finds Treated Fracking Wastewater Still Too Toxic

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 08:34 By david-icke

‘One of the biggest concerns about hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is that the vast amount of wastewater produced by the process of extracting oil and gas from shale rock deep underground is incredibly toxic.

Most often, the wastewater is injected into disposal wells deep underground. But a process does exist to convert contaminated water into drinking water that involves running it through wastewater treatment plants and into rivers.

Now a new report says that treated wastewater could be fouling drinking water supplies.’

‘With the official death count from Ebola now nearing 3,000, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is urging all airlines, both foreign and domestic, to keep a close eye on passengers who might be ill with the disease.

Issued on September 19, the new CDC guidelines warn that airlines can deny travel to anyone suspected of having “serious contagious diseases that could spread during flight.” This applies to all flights, including those flying just within the States. Cabin crews are being advised to take possible infections seriously, and to always use personal protective equipment during flights.’

‘What are the odds? You put about  $68 billion annually into a maze of  17 major intelligence outfits. You build them  glorious headquarters.  You create a global surveillance state  for the ages. You listen in on your citizenry and gather their communications in staggering quantities.

Your employees even  morph into avatars and enter video-game landscapes, lest any Americans betray a penchant for evil deeds while in entertainment mode. You collect information on  visits to porn sites just in case, one day, blackmail might be useful.

You pass around  naked photos of them just for… well, the salacious hell of it.  Your employees even use aspects of the system you’ve created to  stalk former lovers and, within your arcane world, that act of “spycraft” gains its own name: LOVEINT.’

A recent study published in Nature adds to a growing set of concerns about these artificial sweeteners by presenting evidence that they, like sugar, can cause diabetes as well. The Israel-based research team presented evidence that artificial sweeteners cause this outcome by disrupting the balance of microbes that live in the body’s gut.’

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) Trojan Horse. Selling out Europe to US Corporate Plunder

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 06:48 By david-icke

‘Do people in Europe want the likes of Monsanto determining policies in secretive meetings in Brussels? Would they like Unilever, Kraft or Nestle determining what is allowed in their food? Do they want big business removing or weakening health and safety standards and undermining consumer and workers’ rights?

In other words, do they want their parliaments to be sidelined by powerful corporations that determine policies behind closed doors with bureaucrats and officials in Brussels?

Decades of hard work to ensure policies are open to democratic accountability and to guarantee ordinary people’s rights are in danger of being swept away at the behest of wealthy private concerns.’

Venezuela Poised to Win UN Security Council Seat with Unanimous Regional Support

Wednesday 1st October 2014 at 06:40 By david-icke

‘After the failed 2006 bid for a coveted seat on the United Nation’s Security Council, Venezuela has unanimous backing from Latin American and Caribbean countries to win a two-year term, giving the Bolivarian Republic a likely chance to weigh in on international matters such as peacekeeping, military actions and sanctions.

Hugo Chávez made world headlines when he famously referred to George Bush as the Devil during a 2006 speech at the United Nations in New York. At that time the United States government used their clout to block Venezuela’s bid for one of the 10 non-permanent member seats on the UN Security Council.’

The Israeli premier claimed, “ISIS (ISIL) must be defeated… But to defeat ISIS and leave Iran as a threshold nuclear state power is to win the battle and lose the war.”

But, the State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Washington disagrees with Netanyahu’s assertion, adding that the White House would like to show that Iran’s nuclear energy program is peaceful during the ongoing talks between the Islamic Republic and the P5+1 group of world powers.’
