Old News Topics
An open letter by over 100 scientists and doctors appeared on Dec 7, 2020, demanding health authorities to start a campaign to increase vitamin D intakes. The benefit of vitamin D against COVID-19 and the lack of action by health authorities was discussed in Dutch newspaper AD, with English translation here.
A number of breaking news reports have appeared in alternative media about clinical trials with ivermectin as anti-COVID-19 drug, while mainstream media almost exclusively touted trial results with new vaccines. More on this in a recent blog post.
Contrary to official sources, there is no evidence that the Wuhan coronavirus originated at the now closed food market. The first known infected person apparently had no link to that market. At least one scientific article that shifts suspicion from food markets to virus research facilities has been suppressed. That article presents a selection of referenced facts.
On 13 January 2020 Julian Assange appeared in a London's court, after having been given only 2 hours to prepare his case. In an earlier court appearance, District Judge Vanessa Baraitser apparently took direct instructions from US operatives in the courtroom, as described by eye witness Craig Murray. Meanwhile Assange's health is deteriorating further. See also this video interview of John Pilger.
An international expert review report found that the internationally used COVID-19 test is based on an article that was published without possibly passing a proper peer review process. According to the critical review, the "Corman-Drosten" test is very unreliable; it is expected that many people are tested "positive" who are in fact not infected with the new corona virus - https://cormandrostenreview.com/report/
The Assange extradition hearings have resumed.
However, for information about those hearings which threaten Western freedoms one has to consult alternative news media.
The WHO recently declared the African continent free of the wild polio virus, but now there's an ongoing vaccine-derived outbreak of polio that is spreading.

Investigative journalists verified the allegations that in March Greek border forces shot at migrants and refugees, wounding several and killing one. This was found to be true with a high degree of certainty. The Greek government pretended that those allegations were "fake news". In a strange twist of fate, it turned out that the man they killed was a resident of Greece. https://www.bellingcat.com/news/uk-and-europe/2020/05/08/the-killing-of-muhammad-gulzar/
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet in November 'expressed alarm at the continuing lack of transparency about casualties and the treatment of thousands of detainees' after the violent crackdown of the recent protests in Iran. “Verified video footage indicates severe violence was used against protesters [...]” Bachelet said. “We have also received footage which appears to show security forces shooting unarmed demonstrators from behind while they were running away, and shooting others directly in the face and vital organs – in other words shooting to kill. These are clear violations of international norms and standards on the use of force, and serious violations of human rights.” Further, the UN office could partially corroborate 'reports that Iranian security forces used machine guns against protesters in Jarahi Square in Mahshahr – including against people fleeing the area and people hiding in nearby reed-beds'.
Courage Foundation panel criticizes ‘Unacceptable Practices’ in the OPCW’s investigation of the Alleged Chemical Attack in Douma, Syria on April 7th 2018. 'Key information about chemical analyses, toxicology consultations, ballistics studies, and witness testimonies was suppressed, ostensibly to favor a preordained conclusion.'

World Scientists’ Warning of a Climate Emergency
500 scientists signed letter to UN on climate change, claiming 'no climate emergency'
'Studies funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation expect human-induced global warming to tail off slightly over the next few decades. A weaker sun could reduce temperatures by half a degree.'
The definitive report (1 March 2019) on Syria gas attacks does not include one evidence analysis which now has been leaked.
Apparently that analysis was submitted at the last moment (or too late?) and the debate is starting if it should have affected the report's conclusions or not.
Magnitsky wins Russian rights battle 10 years after his death
Describing Magnitsky as a "whistleblower", the BBC article suggests that he was put in prison for that. However, the article admits that "the court rejected a complaint that his arrest and detention were ill-founded". BLOG POST ON THE MAGNITSKY MYTH HERE
