This undated photo provided by the Croatian Police shows an unidentified woman who was found on the Adriatic island of Krk on Sept. 12, 2021.
Officers identified the woman as Daniela Adamcova, who has spent time in the US and Ireland.

Croatian police say they have established the identity of a woman who was found in a remote area on a northern Adriatic island with no recollection of who she was or where she came from.

Officers identified the woman as Daniela Adamcova, 57, from Slovakia. They said her identity was established after receiving numerous tips from Croatia and abroad. Croatian media said the tip that revealed her identity came from the US where she reportedly lived until 2015 before moving to Ireland.

She was reportedly a successful jewellery designer who ended up becoming homeless.

Ponerology - how I stumbled upon the work of Andrzej Łobaczewski

Andrzej M. Łobaczewski, November 2005
Spring 2020 - I think of how to get to Alabama for my research fellowship, and if it's even possible. It has been seven years since I left Poland and started a nomad life between various countries and fields. There's obviously been geophysics at first, but now it's just a shadow of a teenage passion, fading away after the hard expat life in soulless places, and of course, I don't mean whole countries, just specific environments. In hindsight, and they say that hindsight is 20/20 - I could already see some of my preliminary cultural shocks as early as in 2012, during my first internship in Paris. I thought... I thought people know the same portions of history, and even if they don't, they will be open and empathetic. I thought we share similar culture that's probably Christian in the roots, no matter how you define your relation (or lack thereof) with God. I thought the general manners is to be sensitive and unassuming when it comes to such topics. I thought many things. But I didn't think the world could be diverse so much that who you are born as and where you are from matters to the point of not being able to find common language.

I used to see diversity as exciting... And it is exciting as long as you are open to the difference. If you're not, it's isolating. And I've lived in probably the most close-minded places, even if they advertise themselves as the exact opposite of what they truly are.

Melbourne police fire pepper balls at thousands of protesters amidst growing discontent over vaccine mandates & endless lockdowns

Construction workers and far right activists protest against coronavirus disease (Covid-19) restrictions on the West Gate Freeway in Melbourne.
Police in Melbourne used pepper balls and rubber pellets on Thursday to scatter thousands of protesters who defied stay-at- home orders to damage property, block a busy freeway and injure three officers, leading to over 40 arrests, authorities said.

It was the second day of demonstrations in the locked-down Australian city after authorities shut construction sites for two weeks, saying workers' frequent movement was spreading the coronavirus.


Comment: Construction workers were considered 'essential' across much of the planet and worked throughout the last 18 months' of lockdowns; what changed? It's perhaps no coincidence that just as the construction companies are threatening workers with the sack if they don't get the vaccine that suddenly the government is now, essentially, calling them super spreaders: 'F**k the jab!': CHAOS in Australia as construction workers violently protest vaccine mandate outside union HQ


"This has been a really challenging environment for us," Shane Patton, police commissioner in the southeastern state of Victoria, told reporters, adding that the protests were unlawful.

Comment: Considering the erupting situation in Australia, it's notable that earlier today Victoria just recorded what appears to be one of the largest earthquakes in recent history. Other quakes of note in the region were an M5.3 in 2012, and an M5.7 in 1966

More footage of the protests and the increasingly repressive situation in Australia has emerged:

Judge extends ban on NY order mandating medical workers be vaccinated or lose their job

A federal judge on Tuesday extended a ban on Democratic New York Governor Kathy Hochul's order mandating all health care workers in the state of New York to be vaccinated against COVID-19, without any exceptions, lest they be fired.

The restraining order was pushed back another two weeks; now health care and longterm care employees in the state seeking a religious exemption can remain unvaccinated until at least October 12, and keep their jobs.
"Breaking: federal judge extends the temporary ban on the NYS vaccine mandate for health care industry workers claiming a religious exemption until October 12th," News 10 NBC reporter Berkeley Brean said Tuesday. "Then the order could turn into a preliminary injunction."

Comment: If this was real pandemics, then nobody will ever fire healthcare workers and close hospitals so millions of people are denied their essential medical care. In the case of pandemics, every Healthcare worker is precious.

If this was a real pandemic and the "vaccines" were the only effective solution, then why so many Healthcare workers are refusing mandatory vaccination? Are they anti-vaxxers as they like to call people who think with their own head now?

Now, it is all about getting an experimental gene injection, and nobody cares about people's health. Last year it was about remaining imprisoned at home, wear masks and play obedient puppets.

It is all about control of the population. It was never about the virus. The hidden psychopathic elites are the real virus.

Rules for thee, but not for me: Maskless 2021 Emmys defended by Los Angeles County after criticism over lack of COVID-19 safety protocols

Seth Rogen commented o the lack of coronavirus safety measures taken by the Television Academy while presenting an Emmy Award on Sunday night.
The Department of Health explained that because of the nature of the event, the crowded venue was not in violation of any suggested safety guidelines.

Despite online backlash and a bit from presenter Seth Rogen, the 2021 Emmy Awards did not violate coronavirus safety protocols, the Los Angeles Department of Health says.

The Sunday night broadcast caught flack online as the packed ceremony seemed to toss safety precautions to the wind. Very few - if any - masks were worn and social distancing was not in place between groups of people.

When he presented an award early in the night, Rogen compared the event to being in a "hermetically sealed tin." Host Cedric the Entertainer later explained, however, that all attendees were vaccinated.

Comment: Covid measures are for the plebs.

Inalienable Rights - A Suggested Solution To The Covid Coup d'état & How To Resist It

solution covid


Inalienable rights
, founded upon the principles of Natural Law and natural justice, offer us a potential solution to the COVID coup d'état, or pseudopandemic as I call it. Exercising our inalienable rights, in observance of Natural Law, and collectively acting in peace to undermine the objectives of the conspirators, is the best way to resist it.

The objective of the global public - private - partnership of stakeholder capitalists, and their government agents, is to establish centralised global control. If our intention is to resist the imposition of this new world order the solution will not be found in any other form of centralised control. We must construct a society based upon decentralised freedom.

I have challenged the official COVID narrative. However, as many have pointed out to me, quite forcefully on occasion, it is easy to criticise. So here I offer a suggested remedy.

This is my opinion, I am sure there are many alternative ways to peaceably resist and we should use any and all. However, as yet, I haven't heard any political theory that makes more sense to me than the one I am about to suggest. I do not claim any great insight or knowledge. I claim nothing other than my inalienable right to speak freely.

Freedom is the unrestricted freedom to exercise our inalienable rights. It is the freedom to do all that is right whenever or wherever we choose. No one on this Earth has the authority to deny, remove or redefine any of our inalienable rights. They are immutable and ours from birth.

Democrats mistake horse reins for whips to accuse Border Patrol of cruelty to Haitian migrants crossing from Mexico

U.S. Customs and Border Protection mounted officers attempt to contain migrants as they cross the Rio Grande from Ciudad Acuña, Mexico, into Del Rio, Texas, Sunday, Sept. 19, 2021.
The US Border Patrol has been accused of "cruelty" toward Haitian immigrants crossing into Texas, as an activist claimed its agents used "whips" against them. The agency says mounted agents used reins to control their horses.

Amid the ongoing drama with migrants crossing the US-Mexico border at a stretch of the Rio Grande near the small Texas town of Del Rio, a Democrat activist claimed that mounted BP agents were "rounding up Haitian refugees with whips."

"This is unfathomable cruelty towards people fleeing disaster and political ruin. The administration must stop this," tweeted Sawyer Hackett, director of People First Future, a political action committee set up by Democrat Julian Castro.

Major agriculture group New Cooperative hit by ransomware attack, 40% of grain supply chain under serious threat

Agriculture group New Cooperative group was hit by a ransomware attack over the weekend, potentially endangering operations of a company key to the agricultural supply chain.

A spokesperson for New Cooperative confirmed the attack to The Hill on Monday, noting in a statement that the company "recently identified a cybersecurity incident that is impacting some of our company's devices and systems."

"Out of an abundance of caution, we have proactively taken our systems offline to contain the threat, and we can confirm it has been successfully contained," the spokesperson said. "We also quickly notified law enforcement and are working closely with data security experts to investigate and remediate the situation."

Comment: It's particularly notable that, whilst various businesses have suffered ransomware attacks and hacks of late, the food supply seems to be a particular target, with a meat processor, grocery stores and now an agricultural company. These vulnerabilities are even more concerning because the global food supply has already taken a beating in various other areas including the nearly 18 months of lockdowns, many years of crop failures due to increasingly extreme weather events, as well as disease and viral outbreaks resulting in mass culls, which, taken together are wreaking havoc on supply chains, farmers, and devastating already depleted stocks.

It's worth bearing in mind that, shortly after an announcement by the the Build Back Better bunch that hacks could disrupt the world's supply chain, there seems to have been an uptick in these kinds of incidents: For more on the ominous situation, check out SOTT radio's: NewsReal: Winter is Coming - Signs of Impending Economic Disaster

1.5 years behind bars for a tweet: Belarusian court sentences Russian woman to jail time after 'defaming' Lukashenko on Twitter

A court in the Belarusian city of Brest has sentenced a Russian woman to a year and a half in a penal colony after she was found guilty of defaming the country's embattled president Alexander Lukashenko in a post on Twitter.

According to the human rights center Vesna, Irina Vikholm was arrested after publishing a tweet linking to her LiveJournal blog, on which she reprinted a BBC report about the detention of Belarusian opposition journalist Roman Protasevich in Minsk.

"Another crime of Lukashenko: an act of state air piracy," the offending tweet said, alongside a photo of the president. According to the authorities, this is "slanderous information," which has a maximum penalty of five years.


Comment: Someone might wish to tell Lukashenko that thin skin is not a good look. Just make sure not to do it on LiveJournal.


Vesna also reported that Vikholm pleaded not guilty, and during the trial stated that the case was "clearly politically motivated."

The Russian woman, who has lived in Belarus for almost a decade, was arrested in May. Her detention was relayed to Moscow earlier this month, and the Consulate General in Brest met with her in pre-trial prison.

Crazy birds! Calling women 'birds' is 'plainly sexist', judge rules as Barclays banker wins discrimination claim

A UK judge has ruled that calling women "birds" is "plainly sexist," and even using the term jokingly is "foolish" in a landmark discrimination case.

The ruling came following a tribunal brought by a Barclays investment banker after her boss repeatedly called women "birds."

Anna Anca Lacatus said her boss, James Kinghorn, continued to refer to her as a "bird" despite requesting that he stop and warning that the term was making her feel uncomfortable, the hearing at the East London Employment Tribunals Service was told.

Mr Kinghorn still defended his use of the word as "lighthearted", but judge John Crosfill ruled against him stating it was "foolish" to think anyone would find the remark funny.

Ms Lacatus is set to receive compensation following the ruling.

Ms Lacatus worked as a £46,000-a-year analyst with Barclays, her first job in investment banking since completing an investments and finance master's degree at Queen Mary University in London.

In a statement, she said her boss Mr Kinghorn referred to a female employee as a "bird" in February 2018.
