Some anonymous coward has dobbed in a well known TV personality for speaking his mind. Yet, every day in the media, we have far more serious blasphemies and affronts to human decency going on without anyone batting an eyelid.
I’m a Christian, and I could easily counter and debate Fry’s words in a civil manner, but that’s not what this is about. It’s about the freedom to disagree and the freedom to express one’s thoughts and opinions.
Irish police say they will not comment on a complaint of blasphemy reportedly made against British actor and television personality Stephen Fry.
A member of the public contacted police after the comedian spoke about God during an interview with Irish broadcaster RTE in February 2015, the Irish Independent reported.
The individual, who wished to remain anonymous, told the news outlet it was their “civic duty” to report the comments which he alleges were in breach of the Defamation Act.
He said he had recently been contacted by police after following up the complaint with them late last year.
A spokeswoman for the Garda said: “We are not commenting on an ongoing investigation.”
The footage, which showed Fry quizzed by Irish TV presenter Gay Byrne, went viral after it was aired and has now been seen more than seven million times on YouTube.
Asked what he would say if he was confronted by God, Fry replied: “How dare you create a world in which there is such misery that is not our fault? It’s not right.
“It’s utterly, utterly evil.
“Why should I respect a capricious, mean-minded, stupid God who creates a world which is so full of injustice and pain?”
Questioned on how he would react if he was locked outside the pearly gates, he responded: “I would say, ‘Bone cancer in children? What’s that about?’
“Because the God who created this universe, if it was created by God, is quite clearly a maniac, utter maniac.
“Totally selfish. We have to spend our life on our knees thanking him? What kind of God would do that?”
The offence of blasphemy, included in the Defamation Act, is punishable by a fine of 25,000 euro ($A37,090) under Irish law.
For historical interest and reference. Fascinating interview:
Keyhoe was famously cut off during an interview on television in the early 50’s (referenced in this later interview). The UFO research organisation NICAP, which Keyhoe led, had CIA operatives hidden within the ranks, as the Freedom of Information Act has since revealed. The CIA took a keen interest in UFO groups both as a means of psychological manipulation of public perceptions, and as a handy cover for flights of clandestine air technology, such as the U2 spyplane and various experimental exotic aircraft. In other words, disinformation.
Keyhoe presents himself as a calm, well spoken man with a thoughtful, logical approach to what was at the time, a very new and perplexing phenomenon.
Reddit Bans ‘Pizzagate’ Investigation into D.C.-area Child Sex Ring — Labels it a ‘Witch Hunt’
Yesterday, something very strange happened on Reddit, as the subreddit, r/Pizzagate was unceremoniously banned by the social media company — with a disclaimer stating that the subreddit was banned specifically for “the proliferation of personal and confidential information,” noting that,”We don’t want witch hunts on our site.”
The following notice was posted to the site:
Initially, Internet sleuths set out researching the Podesta emails to prove a pedophilia connection between convicted sex offender, Jeffery Epstein, and the Clintons, as Bill Clinton is known to have traveled on Epstein’s private jet, nicknamed the “Lolita Express,” without Secret Service protection on numerous occasions – a seemingly suspicious move given Epstein’s proclivity for sex with underage girls.
While there was never any “smoking gun” found regarding Epstein and the Clintons, the “Pizzagate” subreddit began after the strange use of code words was discovered in use in the Podesta emails, which were released by WikiLeaks. There is no mistaking the use of coded messages within the Podesta emails, but their meaning remains speculative.
The video provided below is a comprehensive breakdown of the connections that underpin the reasoning behind the “Pizzagate” pedophilia claims:
In typical fashion, the government/elite propaganda arm of the media moved quickly to label any mention of “Pizzagate” as “fake news” in an attempt to divert legitimate attention away from the growing crowdsourced investigation.
The Washington Post, in an attempt to undermine any legitimate investigation farcically claimed that those investigating “Pizzagate” believe that a “secret headquarters of a child sex-trafficking ring run by Hillary Clinton and members of her inner circle” is located in the basement of a Washington D.C. pizza shop called the Comet Ping Pong Pizzeria.
Of course, the actual investigation is a broader foray into the seedy world of Washington, D.C.’s political-elite connected pedophile rings. The intimation that those investigating “Pizzagate” simply believe that Hillary Clinton runs a child sex ring is meant to dissuade people from further, legitimate investigation based on the seeming absurdity of such a claim.
Interestingly, the “Pizzagate” investigation in many ways mirrors the high-profile pedophilia scandal that gripped the U.K., before being unceremoniously swept under the rug. In that case, historical abuse by politically connected elites, celebrities, and politicians was brought to light — with an official inquiry being started — only to have the inquiry “crumble” after heavy pressure was exerted by highly placed power brokers within the U.K. establishment.
This was almost the exact same scenario as what took place in the United States in what became known as the Franklin child sex ring coverup. Once the FBI took over the investigation from state authorities, it turned into a witch hunt to persecute the child victims – going so far as to charge them with perjury in a successful attempt to scare the other 70+ victims to recant their testimony regarding the child sex ring.
While the story received a measure of newspaper coverage, there was a complete blackout of the scandal by the mass media, thus most Americans have never heard about this scandal that reached all the way to the White House.
Revealingly, former Republican state Senator John Decamp was involved in producing a documentary about the massive child sex scandal, which was set to air on the Discovery Channel on May 3, 1994, only to be shelved just prior to being seen nationally. It was reported that powerful congressmen threatened restrictive legislation on the cable industry if the documentary were to air.
Subsequently, and almost immediately, an unknown individual purchased the rights to the documentary and ordered all copies be destroyed. A copy of this videotape was furnished anonymously to former Nebraska state senator and attorney John De Camp who made it available to retired F.B.I. chief, Ted L. Gunderson.
Of course, mainstream media, working as the propaganda wing of the power-elite of U.S. society, has essentially declared the Franklin cover-up a “conspiracy theory.” We’ll let you decide.
Some very powerful people did not want you to watch the documentary below:

Provocateurs and police terror at the G20 summit in Toronto
This video has been featured as the “website of the day” on Counterpunch. 1500 views in two days, so I think it has viral potential. That would certainly be a good thing since a poll just came out claiming that a majority of Canadians “support the actions of the police” at the G20. If the poll is accurate, which is questionable, I attribute this to several factors:
– ignorance of agent provocateurs
– media coverage which looped the burning police car footage over and over again, making it look like the whole city was going up in flames
– media coverage which downplayed/omitted the most egregious scenes of police brutality/misconduct
– a general ignorance about the protesters, their message, and police tactics
This is a dark time for Canada and arguably a turning point in our history as a nation.

Please note that since posting this on the 27th of March, the “warning” page that made it difficult to access the Judicial Watch reports, was removed. When I checked on the 30th of March, it had been taken off. There are further details about what occurred here in this thread at the Prisonplanet.com Forum, including a pasted copy of one of the “warning” pages.
27th of March 2009
Have a look at the Google link to the Judicial Watch website where a pdf file of evidence regarding the Gardasil vaccine is posted on their website. In late-February 2009 if you did a Google search using the terms “Judicial Watch Gardasil” this document that cited evidence of adverse reactions to the vaccine was readily accessible, which is why I cited it as a reference to this article about the NZ Immunisation Advisory Center’s censorship of information regarding the adverse reactions to Gardasil. Now however, if you Google “Judicial Watch Gardasil,” you will find that the information is effectively censored. You will see this:
Judicial Watch Investigates Side-Effects of HPV Vaccine | Judicial …
This site may harm your computer.
Judicial Watch has posted links to the adverse event reports below and continues to monitor VAERS reports submitted to the FDA in relation to Gardasil. …
www.judicialwatch.org/gardasil – Similar pages
Then when you click on the link you get a Google notice stating that the site may harm your computer.
Try it for yourselves and see what happens.
You can still get to the file by linking to it here: https://www.judicialwatch.org/documents/2008/JWReportFDAhpvVaccineRecords.pdf
then click on Ignore this warning in the bottom right-hand corner of the red panel.
Thankfully, articles that summarized the Judicial Watch report are still readily accessible to anyone who is easily dissuaded by Google notices warning of “damage”. For example:
