It's one of Scotland's almost forgotten campaigns. James Graham the charismatic Marquess of Montrose and his allies occupied Orkney in 1649 - they were planning to invade the Scottish mainland. Would the islanders turn out to fight? Dr Andrew Lind of the Institute for Northern Studies takes Susan Morrison through the battle that came next and its tragic aftermath. On a lighter wartime note, Susan chats to Dr Michelle Moffat, Tutor at Otago University in New Zealand about how Scots took their holidays in World War 2 and how sometimes there was nothing the authorities could do but to gnash their teeth.
1314 - After the death of King Edward I of England, the Hammer of the Scots, the self proclaimed Scottish king, Robert the Bruce started a campaign of seizing Scottish castles garrisoned by the English. When Stirling Castle was about to fall to the Scots, King Edward II of England had no choice but to act.
Last episode we heard how Jan Bloem and Kora leader Haip had launched a raid on Mzilikazi's Ndebele people arraigned along the southern reaches of the Vaal River in 1830 - and Mzilikazi's bloody response where he not only recovered his cattle but killed 50 Kora. This was the first of a series of incidents which convinced Griqua captain Barend Barends to put together a massive commando and deal with the Ndebele once and for all. Barends is regarded as the founder of Griqualand, he settled north of the Orange River early in the 19th Century - and was the first Griqua to do this. He was also more adventurous than his fellow people, and was a profoundly focused Griqua nationalist. His spirit still moves the people of Griqualand today - it is a fiercely independent folk who live around Kuruman, to Upington, Kimberley. The land there is fierce as well - only the hardiest people can take the splendid isolation of the searing summer temperates and the freezing winds in winter. Barend Barends had left the Cape because he disliked the Dutch and the colonists generally - and he refused to cooperate with authorities when they demanded he hand back escaped slaves. He was far away from their centre of power - who was going to try and stop him? He became known as a protector of runaway slaves, a man whose name was whispered amongst the slave community of Cape Town, his towns a place for the so-called Hottentots to reach if they could across the barren Namaqua wastes - and past the unfriendly Dutch farms. Barends was also a staunch paternalist when it came to the Tswana around him presuming that his people were a cut above - he was condescending at times. And he was luke-warm about Jan Bloem's first plan to raid Mzilikazi. Mzilikazi attacked Griqua hunting parties north of the Molopo River. Barends himself had hunted there, and he'd traded with the Hurutshe folk who by now had been turned into one of the Ndebele vassal peoples. Mzilikazi is also reported to have told Barend and his Griquas to steer clear of the Ndebele land which the Griqua had regarded as their ivory hunting grounds. This was not acceptable to the Griqua view of themselves as superiors to the Tswana, the Sotho, the Ndebele. By early 1831 Barend Barends began to talk in messianic terms - that he was sent by God to sweep Mzilikazi and his “gang of blood thirsty warriors from the fine pastures and glens of the Bakone country…” as Robert Moffat the missionary wrote in his book “Missionary Labours”. The Bakone country was the highveld just fyi. Barend said he wanted to emancipate the people of the region from Mzilikazi's thrall. I'll return to what Mzilikazi was up to by 1833 and it will be a story of blood, gore, pain and suffering, raiding, raping, pillaging and other inappropriate activities because now allow our gaze to swing south once more. Here the relationship between the missionaries, the amaXhosa and the settlers was growing more and more complex. The missionaries thought amaXhosa were living in sin and cursed by damnation, the amaXhosa thought the missionaries were borderline insane and I'll explain why - although its nicely summed up by one young woman quoted by the Scots missionaries of the time. “I am young, and in health, I have a husband and we possess corn, and cattle and milk. Why should I not be happy? Why do I need more?” Such disregard for the soul horrified the poor missionaries, so did just about everything about the amaXhosa, their nudity, the circumcision dances, and missionaries reporting that their land “… is filled with fornication, whoredom, and all uncleanness, witchcraft, their doctors, polygamy, conversations full of frivolousness and filth…”

1290 - 1314 - A series of tragedies left the comparatively stable Scottish monarchy in disarray leading to the opportunistic King Edward I of England attempting to enforce overlordship on the Scots. William Wallace and Robert the Bruce in particular looked to oppose this action.
Ruth Sanderson visits the East Neuk of Fife on the east coast of Scotland. "Neuk" is the Scots word for a nook or corner, and Ruth finds plenty of interesting corners to explore as she braves the wind and the cold to meander up the coastline from Elie to Crail. She finds out about the Fife coastal path, discovers some of its many beaches and learns about its seabirds. She also meets a geologist-turned-restaurateur with a professional interest in the area's sealife, who tells her about the importance of fish to the region's trading history. Some of the old fishing villages are now havens for artists: in Crail Ruth visits a family-run pottery which was set up in the 1960s, and discovers how the landscape has inspired three generations of creativity. Produced and presented by Ruth Sanderson

Not unless your typical Irish pub is located in the basement of an Irish American home in the suburbs of Hunstville, Alabama. “To The Irish!” That's their slogan. And you best be ready to shout when the time comes. Aside from that, the Pub is just a fun place to play. For over a decade, I have packed that basement, decorated to look the most-traditional of Irish pubs. I am excited to return there once again in January. 12:50 - UPCOMING SHOWS Here are some more shows happening this month: JAN 21: Maggie McGuinness Pub, Huntsville, AL @ 7 PM JAN 25: Coffee with The Celtfather on YouTube @ 10:30 AM EST JAN 28: The Lost Druid, Avondale Estates @ 6:30-9:30 PM FEB 11: Pontoon Brewing, Sandy Springs, GA @ 12-3 PM JUN 3-10: Celtic Invasion Vacations, County Mayo, Ireland Is there a venue that you think I should perform at? Please let me know about it. I'm looking for new places to play this year. Maybe there's a spot near you. And if you live in the Atlanta area, then it's even more possible. Let's make it happen! 13:35 - “Loch Lomond” from Selcouth 16:27 - GREEN GROW THE RASHES I got a t-shirt at a Highland Games as a kid. It read, “Spock is a Scot.” I never understood that until I heard Scottish singer, Ed Miller, introduce “Green Grow the Rashes”. He joked, “I know a Scotsman who loved a woman so much. He almost told her.” The joke is that Scots are not very emotional. And yet, this song by Scotland's National Poet, Robert Burns, is one of the most beautiful, touching, and emotional songs ever written. There's naught but care on every hand, In every hour that passes, O! What signifies the life o' man, And 'twere not for the lasses O? * Green grow the rashes O! Green grow the rashes O! The sweetest hour that e'er I spent Were spent among the lasses O! The war'ly race may riches chase, And riches may soon fly them, O! And tho at last they catch them fast, Their hearts can ne'er enjoy them, O! But gie me a cannie hour at e'en My arms about my dearie, O! And war'ly cares and worldly men, May all gae tapsalteerie, O! For you sae douce wha sneer at this, Ye're not but senseless asses, O! The wisest man the world e'er saw, He dearly loved the lasses, O! Auld Nature swears the lovely dears, Her noblest work she classes, O! Her apprentice hand she tried on man, And then she made the lasses, O! I don't remember who I learned this song from. But I've always been a hopeful romantic. I loved it. Brobdingnagian Bards performed it regularly even before we recorded it for our album, Real Men Wear Kilts. However, I do remember Royce Perry was an inspiration for recording that CD. Royce was the head of Clan Gunn in Texas. He was excited to have a Gunn singing Scottish songs for our clan. He was So very encouraging. I remember his gentle smile the most. It was very kind as he listened. It was us performing this song that really made him happiest. So when I finally re-recorded it for Scottish Songs of Drinking & Rebellion. He was in my thoughts. Just read those lyrics and you'll understand. Well, if you understand basic Scots. Robert Burns was apparently quite a ladies' man. He said what was most important in life was spending time with a lady. The worldly man chases money. Money is fleeting and short lived. Just give me an hour with a woman. All the cares in the world will disappear. The last verse is my favorite. Nature did some great things. She even made man while she was an apprentice. But then she mastered the art and created women. How perfect! I don't play this song nearly enough these days since I have quite a few beautiful ballads. But it definitely stands out in my mind as being exceptional. It's also a great song to sing at your annual Burns Supper. These are fancy dinners that celebrate the poetry of Robert Burns. Read more about Robert Burns on Wikipedia. You can listen to it on my Scottish Songs of Drinking & Rebellion album on Bandcamp. The CD is in my Mage Records Store from February 1-10. 22:20 - “Green Grow the Rashes” from Scottish Songs of Drinking & Rebellion 26:34 - DOWNLOAD MY FREE EP You can download all of my songs in this show.

I thank you for that. 32:27 - READ. HAVE YOU HEARD OF BUZZ STOPS? This is cool. A bunch of bus shelters are converting their roofs to be green. They are filled with plants that attract pollinators, like bees. The idea began in The Netherlands and spread to Sweden, Denmark, and now the UK. The idea is to offer a new way to support these vulnerable insects. Plus, it makes the city a bit prettier. I've long thought that every the office buildings should have a garden on their rooftop to make the city more beautiful and to offer new ways to fight climate change. Is this something that could work for your community? You can read more about it here. I learned about this from The Daily Difference. It's a newsletter by the Carbon Almanac with practical tips on how to fight climate change, one action at a time. 34:22 - LISTEN. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SCI F'IRISH SONGS?

What began as penance for speeding has become a beloved radio show-turned-podcast called Simply Scottish that allows writer Andrew McDiarmid to stay connected to his heritage and his homeland. “Being an immigrant has enriched my life,” says Andrew, who emigrated to the United States from Scotland at the age of 11 and straddles cultures and countries in his identity and his affiliations. In the latest episode of the Make Meaning Podcast, host Lynne Golodner interviews Andrew McDiarmid about the influence of the Scots on North America, what they both love about podcasting, building community around great ideas and ways to impact people through writing.

Was there a branch of Clan Cameron is Atholl? Not according to Wikipedia;). Here's some cool details on something Cameron found in his research.

Join our Discord https://discord.gg/jDrUtNcRq2 In the penultimate edition of our short Val Kilmer journey we look at the 1996 action-adventure "The Ghost and The Darkness." Over the course of the episode Scott, Craig and regular special guest Caleb Knutson (can we still call him a special guest at this point? He is basically just part of the show, right?) talk about the true story the film is based on, how this was a passion project for Kilmer and how, for once, it wasn't him giving the director headaches (that would be Michael Douglas!). Plus we get into the movies dodgy effects, even dodgier politics and dodgier still accents. Elsewhere in the episode, the gang get into common silly action tropes, white saviour narratives and there is some brief wrestling chat (amazingly instigated by Craig!). Plus, Scott comes up with the Ken Loach cut of the film and poorly explains a Scots term much to the bemusement of his co-hosts.
Welcome to January 6th, 2023 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate buttery biscuits and sneaky technology. Originally called Biscuit Bread, these buttery, delectable cookies or “biscuits” began life in the 12th century as leftover bread dough dried out to form a hard rusk. Made famous in Scotland by French pastry chefs working for Mary, Queen of Scots, these became known as “petticoat tails”, likely due to the French name for them, petits gateaux or little cakes. Shortbread as it became known got its name from the crumbly texture via an old meaning of the word “short”, due to its high butter content. This final name was even fought for and defended by Scottish bakers in an effort to prevent having to pay a government tax on biscuits. On National Shortbread Day, enjoy this delicious “cookie” with a long history, just don't call it a biscuit! Ever get the feeling that your technology is spying on you? Turns out, it is, but probably not in the way you're thinking! In the 1980s color printers were becoming popular in homes and the government was worried that people could use them to counterfeit money. Because of this, the Xerox corporation developed the Machine Identification Code to track printed documents. Using a series of practically invisible yellow dots arranged in a binary code, your documents could be traced by the time, date and printer serial number hidden on every page. This code was used successfully to track counterfeiters and the public didn't become aware until 2004, almost 20 years later! So the next time someone talks about their phone listening to them, share this little story about their printer. I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson.

Many people sing it to bring in the new year without actually understanding its meaning or even the words. The text on which the lyrics are based isn't even in English — it's 18th-century Scots, a similar but distinct language. The words had been used by a Scottish church for the previous 600 years, as a funeral oration, and it was finally documented by Robert Burns in 1788 and he also wrote and included some original content.Auld Lang SyneShould Old Acquaintance be forgot,and never thought upon;The flames of Love extinguished,and fully past and gone:Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold,that loving Breast of thine;That thou canst never once reflectOn old long syne.Chorus:On old long syne my Jo,On old long syne,That thou canst never once reflect,On old long syne.**TABLE TALK Conversation Card Deck: http://TTDeck.comSPONSORS:ROBB SHOPP: https://RobbShopp.comTHE CALIFORNIA WINE CLUB: https://shrsl.com/27lqbBLUE COOLERS: https://shrsl.com/28ljfBETTERHASH: https://www.betterhash.net/?ref=65168CONNECT WITH ME:WEB: http://robbjarrett.comPODCAST: http://robbcast.comLINKEDIN: http://linkedin/in/robbjarrettYOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/3k75arkFACEBOOK: http://fb.me/robbjarrettpodcastTWITTER: http://twitter.com/robbjarrettINSTAGRAM: http://instagram.com/robbjarrettpodcastMINDS: http://minds.com/robbjarrettRUMBLE: http://instagram.com/robbjarrettpodcastLOCALS: https://locals.com/member/RobbJarrett
Frankie Vaughan seemed to be constantly present on British Television in 1960s. Mr Moonlight they called him. He had a big voice and a big stage presence, top hat, bow tie and tails. He had many hits during the 1950s and had a brief career in Holywood. Most notably opposite Marilyn Monroe in Lets make Love. Here he gives us The Green door. Lita Rosa- Hernando's Hideaway. Rosa started her stage career at the age of 12. At 24 she was lead female singer with Ted Heath. A strong voice which probably never reached its full potential with the material she was given. Variety is the spice of life on Forgotten Songs. So next up is Tom Wright with Driving into Glasgae in a sour milk cairt. Its billed as traditional on the Beltona label. It's not but was written in 1914 by Tom Johnstone for the comedian J.C macDonald. It's in broad Scots. Two from a F.S favourite, Kay Starr- Too busy and If you love me. Dickie Valentine was a popular crooner in Britain through the 50s. Like many British singers he existed on a diet of American covers. He died in a car crash in 1971. Joan Regan and The Squadronaires give us Ricochet. The Squadronaires were the R.A.F big band. There is some confusion of her birth name and exactly where she was born. Again she did a lot of American covers through the 50s but her U.S recorded version of Don't talk to me of love become a Northern Soul classic. Languishing in the F.S colection has been this piece of US Billbord chart history from Tommy Edwards. It's all in the game was the first number one by an African American in the chart. Released in 1958 it was the biggest hit from this singer- song writer. He sadly died young at 47. Frank Ferera with Beautiful Love. He was a Hawaiian music pioneer. We go all posh with Air on a G string with Norbert Wethmar on violin. The only information I can be certain of about him are two references from The Radio Times in the late 1930s. Two performances with the BBC Orchestra. Florrie Forde was the Australian born grand Dame of British Music hall. Whose career spanned Victorian variety theatre to entertaining the troops in Aberdeen in 1940. She died after the performance, aged 64. Her songs included- Hold out your hand you naughty boy, Down at the old Bull and Bush and I do like to be by the seaside. Here she gives us When we were strolling around town. Maurice Winnick was another Manchester born musical child prodigy. As a teenager he was a band leader on a transatlantic liner. He had a succesful career through the 1930s and 40s. He died in 1960. He plays a lovely version of The Waltz you saved for me. The Platters need no introduction and neither does the song- Smoke gets in your eyes. Okay its not forgotten but how often do you hear it directly from the original 78?
“Should old acquaintance be forgot”? What? Should we forget old friends? What does Auld Lang Syne actually mean? Why do we sing it every New Year's Eve? Join the Professor as he waxes lyrical and sentimentally about Auld Lang Syne, Scotland, and good auld Robert Burns!
This is a quick one about our couple of days in Scotland. A brief visit, seeing friends, Edinburgh, and getting "pissed" or drunk every night because that is what we did in those days! I was sad my camera was stolen because I lost pictures of Scottish friends and excursions.
Join Annie as she travels to Linlithgow Palace, the jewel of Scotland's Early Modern crown. Annie speaks to Nicki Scott, Senior Cultural Significance Advisor at Historic Environment Scotland, who describes what Linlithgow Palace would have been like several centuries past. We learn about the monarchs who lived in this spectacular palace. From the Great Hall to the chamber where Mary Queen of Scots was born, we imagine the power of this palace when it was standing strong. Next, we meet Christa Gerdwilker, who is one of the leaders for High Level Masonry project currently underway across Historic Environment Scotland sites. Christa explains the cutting-edge inspections underway to protect the precious fabrics of Linlithgow and other historic buildings managed by Historic Environment Scotland. We get a behind-the-scenes glance into masonry conservation, and the increasingly important role conservators play in protecting historic buildings from the impact of climate change. How can we listen to the stones to understand how to save these monuments? What does it take to ensure Scotland's built heritage can withstand the coming centuries?

This episode is a little different... With this being the Holiday Season 2022, I want to talk a little about some of the holidays that happen this December. We are taking a hiatus until the 10th of January so this is the final show of season 3... I'm going to mention a few of the holidays coming up..with a little info on each of them. Dec 18th Hannukah began Dec 18th this year and continues for 8 nights until de 26th The Jewish Festival of Rededication, also called the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day celebration that falls each year on the Hebrew calendar date of 25 Kislev, which generally falls in December in the Gregorian calendar. (In 2022, Hanukkah is December 18 through December 26.) Hanukkah, also referred to as Chanukah, celebrates the rededication of the second Jewish temple in Jerusalem. The holiday is celebrated with the lighting of the menorah, traditional foods, games, and gifts. Dec 21st Blue Christmas (US) Blue Christmas is a Western Christian tradition that happens on or around the longest night of the year, usually December 21 the Winter Solstice. It is about comforting fellow Christians who are grieving and struggling to find joy and hope during the season. Winter Solstice The Winter Solstice marks the day with the shortest period of daylight and the longest night of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere), all thanks to the tilt of the earth. In many cultures, the day is a day of feasting and celebration, but even if you're totally agnostic, you can still find a reason to rejoice, because after today, you'll see gradually shorter nights and longer days, which means you can look forward to the emergence of spring. Yule (UK) Yule comes up on December 21, on the winter solstice. It is the shortest day and longest night of the year, as the Sun gets its lowest elevation in the sky. Apart from the marking of a new season, the winter solstice also holds a significant symbol for the Sun. It appears to stand still on this day, it's believed that the Sun is going through a rebirth. It would then gain momentum after the solstice. The holiday also depicts several pagan beliefs, especially that of the Holly King handing over power to the Oak King, ushering in a new season of light. Dec 23rd Festivus Festivus is on December 23 and it's perfect for those who don't have a traditional holiday to celebrate. Although it sounds paradoxical, its purpose makes a lot of sense. Not everyone has a major holiday to celebrate like Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa and they can feel left out. This holiday gives many people a non-denominational and non-commercial holiday to call their own. Festivus is for everybody! Dec 25th Christmas Every year on December 25, we celebrate Christmas, a day for spending time with family, observing an important Christian holiday, partaking in lighthearted traditions, or just spreading some holiday cheer! Christmas has evolved over several millennia into a worldwide celebration that's both religious and secular and chock full of fun-filled, family activities. Dec 26th Kwanzaa Heri Za Kwanzaa! Kwanzaa, celebrated from December 26 to January 1, is an African American and pan-African seven-day cultural holiday that celebrates family and community. During the holiday, families celebrate with feasts, music, and dance, and end the holiday with a day dedicated to reflection and recommitment to the seven principles. Boxing day Boxing Day is held every December 26th in many countries associated with the British empire. It started as a day to give gifts to the household staff of Britain's upper classes but has morphed into a sort of shopping holiday of its own. In fact, its one of the most popular days to return Christmas gifts to the stores. St Stephen's day in Ireland Dec 26th St. Stephen's Day is still referred to as the Day of the Wren, especially in rural Ireland. Due to its Catholic roots, St. Stephen's Day has been a holiday in Ireland for many years. It was only in 1871 that it became a public holiday after the Bank Holidays Act of 1871 was passed. Dec 28th National Call a Friend Day Christmas is over and New Year's is on its way. But in the meantime, December 28 is National Call a Friend Day! Between the stress of the daily grind at work, the needs of your family, and ensuring you have a little time for yourself, our lives can get awfully hectic. National Call a Friend Day reminds us all to take a few minutes, pick up the phone, and call that friend you've been meaning to get back in touch with. In modern times, technology has the capacity to unite us more than ever before. The internet isn't fazed by distance, time zones, or how much money you have in the bank. But in our day to day lives of whizzing from one task to the next (or even multi-tasking on all our projects at once), technology often has the opposite effect. Checking emails, answering texts, responding to Facebook notifications, and other tech-based tasks can fill up our lives and actually make us feel less connected to the people we're spending all our time connecting with! So with the holiday season rapidly drawing to a close this year, make an effort on December 28 to reach out with a phone call and connect, voice to voice, with a good friend. Dec 31st Hogmanay Hogmanay is a Scottish word meaning “the last day of the year.” It's celebrated in Scotland on New Year's Eve, when Scots host house parties and exchange gifts. The celebrations are often followed by parties on both New Year's Day and January 2, which is a bank holiday in Scotland. While the origins of Hogmanay are hard to pinpoint, its roots are thought to lie in Norse and Gaelic traditions. New Year's Eve New Year's Eve comes but once a year on December 31, the last day of the last month of what usually feels like the longest year ever but somehow passed too quickly. Most of us give little thought as to why we ceremoniously say goodbye to one year and hello to a new one on December 31. Even those who don't make special plans to greet the arrival of a new year at the stroke of midnight on December 31 pay homage to the rite with thoughts of the year gone by and hopes for the year to come. This was a bit lighter fare, with a few interesting dates and information. However, this can be such a tough time of year for anyone. Thinking of each of you through this often difficult time. Many folks struggle during the holidays. Some people are overwhelmed with sadness. Some are simply overwhelmed. Reach out and talk to someone.. say hello. to a neighbour, a store clerk, someone you pass on the street.. Smile Facial expressions do more than express emotions, they also provide feedback to the brain, which influences our emotions. A new global collaboration led by researchers at Stanford University has shown that even fake or posed smiles can make people feel happier. May the light of the holidays bring warmth and love into your household, and here's to hoping for a better year ahead. Thank you for listening. Season 3 of The suicide Zen Forgiveness podcast comes to a close.. I will be taking the next few weeks to take stock of the year that has passed...and prepare for the new year to come... Let us know if there are topics you would like me to cover.. Guests you would like me to talk with.. I will return on January 10th, 2023

It's been a while. And its Mark Sutherland. Mark, thank you so much for coming back with us. (MS) My pleasure, Peter. It's an absolute privilege to join you again and to join your audience. So thank you very much indeed. (HoO) always good to have you on always. And I thought I was, actually thinking of doing this myself and I thought it's Christmas. I thought, well, I'll try, Mark wondering. He said, yeah, I'd love to come on. So I hope I haven't messed up your late Christmas shopping, Mark. (MS) Late Christmas shopping? What's that? What is Christmas shopping, Peter? I try and avoid it. I thought it was a demonic activity. (HoO) That's for another... Okay. So first, lots of stories, obviously, to go through. You'd sent me a website and I want to maybe open with that. And it is looking at J6. We've had Jake Lang on before speaking to us from his prison cell. Someone who'd been in solitary confinement for 11 months. There are many, many individuals still being held without trial, completely illegally. They would have, probably had better treatment if they were in Guantanamo Bay. But tell us about this, J6patriot.news. Just fill us in a little bit on us before we move on to our main first story. (MS) Thank you, Peter. And thank you for bringing this up at the beginning of the show. So there is a book called the American Goula Chronicles. The book is chronicling the 45, prisoners, the letters, the exchange between those particular prisoners and talking about their stories and what they've suffered and a friend of mine, Tim Rivers, out of that the J6, patriot news has grown. The book has been created, it's now on sale, so I would be delighted if people could look this up and buy the book and if there's hassle in that regard to then getting. Contact with me but the book is there to raise money to create money to then help them financially in regard to their defence fund to actually help their families because 96, 97 prisoners are in prison And in basically, as far as I'm concerned, we're calling them gulags, American gulags. They are, they have not been brought to trial. And of course, the gulag reflection goes back to Alexander Solzhenitsyn's incredible book called our gulag archipelago, that hence the name of that. So we, the, these people have been arrested, we're fully aware of how some of that has been done with with the disgusting behaviour of the FBI. But the book is there to raise money for their legal defence fund and to protect their families. Because if you have then put the people in prison who are the sole breadwinner of particular families, it means that houses have been lost, rent can't be paid, payments on cars, et cetera. So we need this book to take off because the injustice, we could spend a whole show discussing the injustice of this and you very kindly are showing the website where people can go to, J6patriot.com click on the top of that to book info and then and then go from there, people are fully aware of what happened on jan 6. 2021 now a complete and utter set up and this is happening in the united states of America This is not happening in Russia, it's not happening in North Korea, it is not happening in any other throat in China. This is happening in North America under a, you know, where the constitution was ratified in September 1787. Say that this is the country that is pursuing life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It stands for the injustice is unbelievable and I don't really have, we don't really have time to discuss some of the stories of what some of these people and I'm very glad that you have had Jake Lang on. I am fully aware of his particular story and the disgusting things that's gone on. Quickly to finally end on that then before we move on, seven people have committed suicide over this and a grandmother that was arrested on the steps, was arrested because she was on the steps of the house because she was praying, found herself in the gulag and because sadly of her upbringing they then said right we're going to put you in solitary confinement. She refused to do that because of what I've been through when I was a child and they said well if you won't go into solitary confinement then we're going to give you a jab and they gave her the fact she took the vaccine which is just another subject of horrendousness. The abuse, the lack of food. The beatings that are going on is a reality and we need to see these people come out when as the the House has then gone to the Republicans. These people like Jim Jordan and everything else need to step up. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Gates, Gantz, Louie Gomer, the whole thing. They need to then step up and to throw the book at Cheney and Co. and Nadler and put and actually say the truth of the situation and what actually happened on that day instead of this, you know, FBI led lies along, of course, with Pelosi, etc. Just to quickly remind ourselves, five people at the hands of the DC police, including one DC policeman, Officer Signick, died that day. They died, Patriots died that day. And remember where Officer Signick is talked about, the Republicans, the people that were there on the day were criticized, were accused of beating him with a fire extinguisher. That was a complete and utter lie. You then look at the sad case of Roseanne Boylan being physically beaten by the DC police with batons. We then have Ashley Baber of course shot by Brown in the house. You then have two others as well that have died. This is abominable and I just want to point out one last thing on this. Please go to stophate.com to a dear friend of mine, David. Somerall. Look at his work who's basically the principal expert on what is going on in regard to Jan 6. If it wasn't for him, that book wouldn't be happening. If it wasn't for him, then this issue would not be as high up the list as it should be. But put it this way, it is not as high as it should, be and it needs to be up there in regard to mainstream news. People like Mike Huckabee, et cetera, I'm just going to say it, need to get him on their show along with others. This is important along with Bannon and all the rest. Now we haven't got time to potentially... (HoO) We don't. Let me show you. J6patriotnews.com. It's in the chat there on GETTR. So let's move on to the first. Just a couple of people. Roger Grant Rav is first on Getter. Chris Davis 33 is there. He's always Vicky. Do drop your comments. Let us know where you're watching. Always good to see that on the Getter chat, which is always busy. So do drop your comments in that and do make sure and look on the website, j6patriotnews.com. The link is in the getter, chat. Let's go to, completely different, north of the border, up in poor, Scotland. All you Scots who voted for the SNP, this is what you're now getting. And if you keep voting for the SNP. It'll just become more hellish for you north of the border. This is BBC UN Chief Back Scottish Government Gender Recognition Reforms. If we can just scroll that down Proj. And this is the trans right so I look at that beautiful Look at that, and someone's brought their child along. I mean, what sick perverts are you? And top UN officials back the Scottish government's plan to reform gender recognition law, ministers want [3:45] to make it easier for trans people to change their gender just so they can, while they're choosing what their breakfast cereal is, they can also choose what gender they wish to be that day. Mark, give us your thoughts on this madness. (MS) Well, my thoughts on this matter is I'm desperately trying to be polite, but this is complete and utter madness. So I think the first thing to say, there are only two sexes, male and female. The fact that in here, they want to speed up the process to go that you can decide to after your cornflakes or your rice krispies, even though you're a man, you can suddenly go, I want to be a woman today and to say to speed this up for three months. This is just outrageous. The other issue as well, of course, is if you are a man, you want to identify as a woman, if you then end up in certain situations. If you end up as a, say you are a male prisoner, you're saying, I want to identify as a woman now, go into a female prison, and then we have a situation of rape and all this kind of thing. And people think, maybe I've just said an extremist comment. No, I haven't, because this is the reality of the situation and everything, as we say. As Bible-believing Christians, yes, let's say that, we know that this is a full and utter attack of what everything that the scripture stands for, what everything that our faith actually stands for. J.K. Rowling is right. She's absolutely right when she has called all of this out. And the, I mean, in many ways, we know where this is going. This has been planned for a long, long time. People are unaware of that. But I also will say, I think this is a complete and utter mental illness, frankly, Peter. There are many, many things that we could put within that. I have sympathy for a lot of people that have mental problems, but the fact this is a spiritual battle. And now within the education, within the Scottish system, the relationship and sex education and wanting to push the fact that if you're going to on four and five year olds, discuss issues that four and five year olds should not know and you can even say they shouldn't know until they're 16 years of age. I'm not just, I'm not going to bring those up, but people can think about that. Frankly, Peter, it's madness as far as I'm concerned. (HoO) Let me just bring up this story. I hadn't talked about the story Mark, but I want to just mention it because it fits into this. And that's why you're very popular. Shut that off. (strange music starts) Is that you? (MS) No, it's not me. It's not me. It's not me. Yes, it is me. I do apologize. (HoO) That's okay. He's popular. He's popular. Someone's not watching him on the show, realizing he's live. Let me just bring up this story because again, if it's in, I'll just mention it. This New York Post two days ago, BBC covered it yesterday. Norwegian actress Tondre Gjelvjorn, my Norwegian isn't so good, faces up to three years in prison for saying men cannot be lesbians. And then it comes out later, yesterday she is gay. So she's a lesbian. So as a lesbian, she said that men can't be lesbians and she's now facing three years in prison for saying that according to Norway's hate speech legislations, which it just shows the state of Europe and, compelled speech, extremely dangerous, whenever truth can be a lie and it's irrelevant, right or wrong. That's where we're going. What happens when you abandon any concept of truth. This is where you head. I just wanted to bring that up, but let's go on to, there are lots of others. So let's jump on to COVID to add to the madness. And this is what's, it's been very curious watching the last two weeks over in China. And this is Shanghai schools to go online as COVID spreads in China. Pro Jam, do you want to just scroll that down? This is all the children, and of course still masked up, even with the vote being fully jabbed, not with an Mrna jab, which is also really interesting. But it's the largest city. And they're all been told they now should go online effective from Monday. And it's, yeah, Mark, you've watched what's happening with China and their zero COVID policy and the pushback against that. Once again, the children are going to be punished for stupidity in the government. (MS) Well, it's very interesting, isn't it? Because they've just had a sort of a plandemic rerun of event 201 in Australia where they're they're focusing on children saying something's happening in Brazil and all this kind of thing. They've done a simulation here. We also must remember that the Chancellor of the Exchequer over here, Jeremy Hunt, who sort of during the COVID-Novid nonsense was espousing the delights of how the Chinese were handling this. We saw scenes of people being put in their, they were in their flats and having doors sealed because they had got they are tested positive for a virus. And again, we have all these testing, instead of turning around and saying how many people have actually died. From this. Then they have pushed forward all these vaccinations. Did you just say that the vaccination to the Chinese was not mRNA? (HoO) That's what I read two days ago and that was Fortune magazine that said that not one Chinese citizen has been offered mRNA vaccine. I thought, wow. And I haven't delved deeper into that. I'm just putting that as what I read in Fortune magazine two, three days ago. (MS) So we have to remember, of course, you know, and then we've got Fauci in America, gained a function. I can't recall 215 times or something in the recent legal action that he was a witness in. Why are we surprised? People have got to wake up to event 201, September, October, 2019, where they simulated everything that is now unfolding. We then go to Australia, where it's children, et cetera, et cetera, and we see what is unfolding. And very, very sadly, we see those children with masks. We're now going to push their education onto Zoom. So there's even more mental health problems, they're creating, more socialization problems that they are creating. The fact is China is a technocracy. It's a technocracy. Complete lockdowns, complete control. And let's just remind ourselves something, Peter. Who was the man, you know, there he is, fronting the World Economic Forum. Who was the man that is espousing the delights of the leader of China? I think it's the biggest bond villain we've never had, Klaus Schwab. Yeah. (HoO) Absolutely. Let's go for closer to home. Projam. up the next one on what they're doing planning here in the UK. This was in the Telegraph a day or two ago. Meet the man preparing for Britain's next pandemic from a portacabin. The story is a joking story about him, someone knocking the windows, the postman, he has to get up and the building they're in is a prefab building. But this man is prepping the next stage, the next wave, however we want to look at it. He could be one of the most dangerous individuals in the UK. I read the story, again, a lot of information about him and what they've set up. I don't know much about his background. I would have thought he would want to stay in the shadows, but it's a joking story, mocking this and that. And it's concerning, obviously, that our government is all getting ready, all planning for the next, I think the next stage, I would say, is a fair response to, that. (MS) Well, I come back to Jeremy Hunt again. You know, Jeremy Hunt, who's actually running the country, not Rishi Sunak. Jeremy Hunt, who turned around and absolutely celebrates exposes the spouses, the delights of China and their reaction, their reaction to this. I mean, this whole thing of. So you have SARS, you have MERS, you create whatever you can, you know, Ebola and all the rest. This is not a popular thing to say, of course, because for some of us who do not have a medical background over the last two to two and a half years, we have tried to educate ourselves and say that the best immunity you have is our body. So whatever's been put in the water, the food, the air, the throwback to the fact that phar marcia here we break down means magic, the fact that we should not even be having any of these vaccines, any of these pills, etc. And it is about making an industry a load of money. So you then go to Pfizer in 2008, 2009, I think through a subject, subject through, we may have to check this afterwards, something called a pill, called Merck or something like that and they with all the damage that's done where people are taking this they then have to pay a fine up to 14 billion dollars. Okay, the link here and this is not funny to actually turn around and say we're gonna lock people down because their genocidal agenda and. And it is, we look at the injuries that are now coming forward. They are absolutely, I mean, you're just in tears listening to people's stories. We look at when we've got people like John O'Looney who then able to do an autopsy on a particular body. It's been out there, it's been, bless him, he's been talking about that. There was on the film, Died Suddenly, you were then got an autopsy in New Zealand, a guy out there. And they've been pulling out these long strands. Look at what's happening is doing to people's blood and the clotting and all the rest. So all these long strands. I am not a medical doctor. I'll just say that. But the key is this is wrong. It's as though they're being like plasticizer going on. And mRNA, as you know, recent technology, of course they've had it planned for a long, long time. They haven't properly tested this and all the rest and they've rushed it out. And it's a mass psychosis on the population, as that incredible professor whose name has just gone from me, from Belgium, where he talks about this. Desmond Matisse, sir. Desmond. Precisely. So My Body, My Choice does not seem to apply when people are turning around and going, sorry, with great respect, I believe in terrain, and I don't believe in germ theory. This is not a joke, and as you said, so the next thing is plan to lock us down, wreck the economy, bring in the social credit score and all the rest, and I think very sadly. People like Rishi Sunak seem to believe in this, whether that's through a father-in-law's company of Infosys that's then involved in China and involved in all these processes. We are not making this up. The key verse says, Hosea 4 verse 6 says, "'My people are destroyed through lack of knowledge,' and we need to get this knowledge. There's now, I'll tell you what, Peter, we need to do some research. There is the accusation, of course, We know that Rishi has been involved in various financial dealings, hedge funds, etc. in America. And there is an accusation of a particular hedge fund investing in AstraZeneca, leading to Moderna, etc. etc. That is an accusation that's out there. That needs to be followed up. And we need to research this and find out because all of these guys are up to their neck in it. We have to remember when Boris Johnson was having the Gavi conference and saying that he's going to use our taxpayers' money to go in that direction. What about the comments he made at the UN roundabout September, October 2019? He's having a go at anti-vaxxers. He's bestowing the delights of nanobots and all this kind of thing. This is a reality. We are seeing the damage and the mass psychosis, the mass psychological attack from, you know, nudge, etc, etc. They've done such a good job on this, which is awful. We've still got people around in society in this country wearing masks. I have to work out. Forgiving here and just going, you are completely and utterly believe the Kool-Aid of what you've been given through the mainstream media and please, please, please start listening to us and doing some of the research. But this has been, I hate to say it, extremely clever on the enemy's side. (HoO) Oh yeah and Died Suddenly, I watched it over the last couple of days ago and one of the reasons why I knew I had to watch it. And then just for the viewers, we've got Richard Hirschman on Monday. Obviously I've interviewed John O'Looney, interviewed Steve Kirsch, and I wanted to watch it before I get interviewed. And it is a frightening... I still, and I'll just say this, the point will not discuss, but I still am not at the point of accepting the depopulation. And I'm holding off on that. But even without that, which is a kind of thread throughout the film, what they're putting forward is utterly frightening and it's even more concerning that no one is allowed to talk about it. So the film is phenomenal film. You need to watch it to our viewers and listeners and you need to pass it on. And we'll have Richard Hirshman with us on Monday who was along with John O'Looney and the gentleman from New Zealand who I've forgotten, the three of them were the funeral directors, the embalmers who were showing those long threads and strings and elastic substances, they were pulling out. But we'll not, I just wanted to mention that. Let's onto this and this is something that's mentioned. This is something which I have looked at recently and become really, really concerned about. This story, cancer crisis reaches a watershed moment as experts warn upward trend in deaths is likely to continue. So you've got people not seeing, I think only 60% of people now see a cancer specialist within two months of being referred for an urgent appointment from their their GPs. So you've got, one side you've got lockdown decimating our health services. But then you've got the other side of mRNA and the information is coming out on the spike proteins and how it can affect cancerous growth and speed it up. And that's the whole area I need to go. But those two in my head make this concerning. It's coming out and it's just getting worse and worse, the cancer rates. (MS) Well, I think the issue is it's about neglect, isn't it? If you have not been able to see your specialist with the health problem that you have had, then that saying the obvious is not rocket science, is it? That means that your need is not being seen to. As a dear friend of mine who works in the NHS system within the middle of the country, it's still going on about the fact that doctors are not returning to work properly. To access a doctor, to have an appointment online, etc. The delay is huge. Nurses are not going back. But then again, if they were threatened with a jab and they refused to have a jab, then do you blame them? There needs to be some very, very big secure legal action on this. So doctors are still being very well paid within certain practices that we are all paying for. And they are not seeing the patients. The other thing is, and maybe, Peter, this is something that we can all contribute to, is that these people, sadly, that are suffering from cancer and all the rest, we need to be looking at homeopathic remedies, and they are there. I am not an expert on that. A friend of mine, Kate Shimarni, is in regard to, has a lot to say on that herself and in regard to her own personal health. People have as well and those some of those experts are in are in America we need to address those. So we need to be encouraging as, Kate is, people to take responsibility for their health what can they do and we know we know the attacks that are coming in so without sort of repeating myself I'll say this if you are being denied access to these specialists then sadly the situation you are in, is going to get worse and this is where I would say that as far as I'm concerned that is contrived, I believe of course that is deliberate and it isn't the physical effects and then contribute then linked with the mental effects and this combined-ness is horrific. [22:43] If people are going, how long does it take to get an ambulance to people if you're looking at this in London and all the rest? So the demands are huge. But the other thing is, is that we have got to, I'm speaking to myself, we have got to take responsibility for our own health. What can we do? We need to be educating ourselves over that. And you and I have access to incredible people that can do that. And that's what we need to be doing. And these doctors, et cetera, need to be getting back to work immediately. And of course, sadly, a number of those, as a particular gentleman who's the heart specialist, We'll come on to that article later, who has been speaking out. NHS doctors, a number of those, are fully aware of what's going on. They need to be speaking out as well. (HoO) Yeah, completely. Well, let's, over in the States, let's look at some rhinos. So this, I saw the story yesterday. Here are the Republicans who voted against reinstating troops who refused the vaccine. Now the story is that four Republican senators joined Democrats in shutting down an amendment to defense authorization package that would have reinstated troops discharged for refusing. To take the COVID-19 vaccine. It was Mitt Romney, is he actually a Republican? I can't even say his name with a Republican in the same sentence. Susan Collins of Maine, Bill Cassie of Louisiana and Mike Rounds of South Dakota. They voted no in the last mid-amendment so it failed. I don't understand the evil of these people to refuse because my understanding is that you've got your jab-jab and then you were told that was good for a long time, then you're told actually it was me good for nine months, six months, three months. But these people haven't been forced to take a booster. So even if you believe that, that actually that was good for nine months, actually then And after nine months…, it doesn't work according to what we're told. Therefore, it doesn't make sense to keep the mandate whenever you are not continually rolling out the booster. But not to get these people their jobs back is quite sick. And these are obviously rhinos, I guess, dancing to Biden's, tune. (MS) Well, of course, it's absolutely sick. And you look at those individuals, you look at people like Mitt Romney for argument's sake, let's just go to that. Establishment, a part of the globalist order, we haven't got time to discuss that tonight. He is totally and utterly in on it. And the four people there deciding to vote against reinstating all these people to make sure that they're military, they're supposed to be protecting them, but they're most of all got their own private armed services, themselves that they pay for. They are being paid by the taxpayer and they are then they've just voted against this. These people need to be in jail. This is outrageous. All of these people need to be called out and they are and they are then turning around to their military, weakening their military even more and going right we're gonna vaccinate these people. We have had a lot of American military then leave, resign etc over this. Their religious rights. As committed Christians etc have not or if they are of other faiths have not been respected one iota and I'll say this without sounding conspiratorial but if you want to weaken, a country's defense this enough is a very very good way of actually doing it. We have got some of They have got some of the elitist military service people, personnel in the world. We could have an argument between our own special boat service and theirs and their rangers and all the rest. But they are top. And then these people are having vaccinations and you've got these extremely fit young men, young women suffering from myocarditis, suffering from all the rest that in the video guide suddenly actually raises. But more importantly, more importantly, people have to realise that within Washington DC politics, the [27:51] Republicans and the Democrats, they're two wings of the same bird. And if God is giving that time, all of these disgusting pieces of work need to be thrown out of the House, thrown out of the Senate, etc. And we know that at the moment that is not easy because of the digital. That goes on from creating a situation where you've got voting day, to voting week, to voting month, to voting season. We only have to look at what's been happening with Kari Lake in Arizona. So I hope that these people, the four of these names, will never ever ever be forgotten. (HoO) Yeah, yeah. Let's go over to the WHO and the awards given out, the WHO awards ceremony, and it goes, to this individual, Sir Jeremy Farrar, and the headline in the mail. And it's interesting how suddenly you've got the media on the right now wanting to talk about it after actively trying to destroy people's lives as much as they could for two years. They now pretend they're the mouthpieces of truth and freedom. But China's puppet, the World Health Organization, named Sir Jeremy Farrar the influential scientist who helped to crush COVID lab leak theory as conspiracy as its new chief scientist. This is one of the most prestigious roles in the world of science. It seems though he has been rewarded for his acceptance of whatever China would put out. He was happy to be their mouthpiece and now he's been rewarded with his 30 pieces of silver. (MS) Is there in that article is Imperial college mentioned in that article or was Imperial college mentioned in the man that's in his sort of mobile, mobile cabinet? The reason I say that is because we have to remember the Imperial college and they all focus in, Oh, you know, a hundred thousand people are going to die. No, it goes down to 20,000. The biggest non-mathematician that we've ever had. All of these things, how these models are created. Now in regard to this gentleman who I don't know, I've I've just read this article very briefly. So then we're. Crushing the COVID, novid nonsense lab theory. Well, let's just go, what about gain of function? So we are stopped from doing gain of function in America. We then Fauci says, and here is the, there is a link here. Fauci then says in 2017 that the Trump administration is going to face a pandemic. Well, how the beeper beep do you know that? So then the WHO are covering this up, the man in front of the WHO from Ethiopia, a member of a terrorist group in the past or the group that the Americans round about, 94, 95 or say, no, maybe 2005, six Tetros says you're a member of a terrorist organization, etc. Then suddenly there's all this legislation to hand over the individual responsibility of a country's health policy to the who. And of course, who backs the who? Bill Gates, who backs them? China, they're all involved. So this particular gentleman, with great respect, sir, you need to actually look at what is going on. You need to look at the Wuhan lab. You need to look at that smart city. You need to look at the 5G. You need to look at all this technology of control that's coming about. And then you need to look at the vaccines and the damage that they are doing to people. And the deaths that are being caused and the injuries are being caused. And then please can we have a polite conversation and actually say to you, where is your moral compass now? (HoO) Moral compass in regards to China and the WHO and this. Pro Jam, can you bring up the next story? On what was the next story? Our next story was the absolutely wonderful Andrew Bridgen. For those who don't know, Andrew Bridgen is one of our 650 MPs and has spoken in the House of Commons. There have been a number of others, handful, you can count them on one hand. This individual has, this is the headline from the Express, it's all over. MP alleges cover-up of COVID vaccine, inflaming heart arteries in bombshell claim. Well, this claim has been made for quite a long time now, but an MP has used parliamentary privilege to make a bombshell [32:49] allegation that a senior member of the British Heart Foundation has covered up a report, which shows the mRNA COVID vaccine increases inflammation of the heart arteries. So he is telling us the information is there. They've got a report to tell us the dangers of this and the report is being quietly put away. The sad part was that I didn't see any other end. He's jumping up to his defence. It was, it was silence, but well done, Andrew Bridgen for being an absolute hero and going in there to the lion's den and facing off such anger and vitriol against anyone who would dare hold an. Opinion that actually this vaccine is killing us. (MS) I couldn't agree with you more on it. It's a, it's a real privilege for me to actually comment on this because Andrew I think is an absolute hero in what he did. We do know, we can see as some people have pointed out to me, how empty the benches in the House of Commons were and I'd ask them to put that aside because the point is this is that he has now gone on the record to express truth. He has gone on the record to express how many many of us have He has gone on the record to actually say the truth where certain friends of ours have been billified, we've been called conspiracy theorists and all the rest, for speaking the truth for some time. This is a particular MP who publicly admitted that he has had two vaccines. We have seen people like Esther McVeigh as another member of parliament who has begun to raise some of these issues. There is a number of people. We need MPs, whereas people like Steve Baker, etc. We need these MPs to speak out. There's another individual as well whose name... Charles Walker has spoken and Swain has also spoken. Is there a guy called Kruger? Could be. So Andrew said it absolutely brilliantly, the particular doctor that he quoted, whose name has just gone from me as well, I do apologise, who has recently been over in America on Tucker talking about what has happened. Doctor that went on G.B. News and he was pushing the vaccines and then suddenly through his own father's death and his own investigation, he then turned around and said, no, this is wrong. These are wrong and we should not be pushing this. He also raised the fact that the the Heart Foundation, etc. Were were just saying, no, we're not having this investigation whatsoever. Now going going back to Andrew and what he said, and it's not unusual for Andrew to challenge things and to hold to hold the government government to account. He has been a thorn in the flesh on previous, you know, conservative manner of administrations. And if I were part of his constituency in Leicester, I would right now be sending an email for my MP going, You've got my you you have my prayers and I'm extremely proud of you for what you have done because many many I watched I've seen it. I've watched that speech. Many many people have watched that and there is much applause. Now Andrew as I say he desperately needs our prayers and our and God's protection in that in that way. and like all these people, a bit like Neil Oliver when he is speaking out and when he does his incredible 10 or 11 minute presentations. And I find it fascinating that in many ways in this country there are non-Christians that are leading the vanguard to this. It's another subject, but where is the church's voice on this? We have no Christian, let's just say it publicly, we have, no Christian institution in this country addressing the issue of vaccines. And I'm pleased and so, pleased to see a Member of Parliament of Andrew Brigdon of turning around and saying, I'm going to represent my constituents. I believe this is true. I am concerned about this. And I'm, going to speak on behalf of the rest of the population within the UK that actually share my views and it is the evidence is out there the particular doctor that he he quoted is an absolute expert on this and that particular doctor also revealed that once he spoke out other people came and said this is true but we can't talk about it we need all these doctors etc to start speaking out but of course it's going to be you're not going to get your pension we're going to well, We're not actually, this is the key thing. [37:49] People who are accessing research funding are turning around and saying, well, if we speak out, we're not going to get our research funding. This is wrong, where in the sense of how big pharma is dictating health policy in this country. Need to look at and I just say the word pharmacy, pharmacia, meaning magic. Bear that in mind from a spiritual and scriptural point of view. (HoO) Let me just play, it's just a minute, so let me just play that clip from the Express of Andrew Bridgen speaking and you can see the packed parliament. Let me play it. (audio plays of Andrew Bridgen MP) 'It has also been brought to my attention by a very reliable source that one of these institutions is covering up clear data that reveals that the mRNA vaccine increases inflammation of, the heart arteries. They are covering this up in fear that they may lose funding from the pharmaceutical industry. The lead of that cardiology research department has a prominent leadership role with the British Heart Foundation and I'm very disappointed to say that he has sent out nondisclosure agreements to his research team to ensure that this important, data never sees the light of day. This, Madam Speaker, is an absolute disgrace. Such systemic failure in an over-medicated population also contributes to huge waste of British taxpayers' money and increasing strain on the NHS. Huge waste.' (MS) So there are four members of parliament in there listening to this. Now what about the benches on the other side? How many are there on the other side? So in other words, let's just say it. (HoO) But Mark, there are four on that side, the one that government minister has to respond. You've got four other MPs there. Three of them are staring at their phones as far as I can see. They're not interested in people dying. (MS) Well, there's a particular, there was an individual that I saw last night and I saw him who has had the vaccines and you know, I'm nearly in tears when I'm listening to him and the effect on his body of this particular young man. There are a number of others again saying this, publicising what has happened against them. This is disgusting. And then we have Rishi Sunak, our technocratic coup fronter, turns around and says, oh, there's nothing wrong with the vaccines and I completely support this and all of this. The fact that the members of parliament, someone has mean this, you know. Discussing this, there's no one in there, but when they're discussing their pay rise, the whole of Westminster is absolutely full. Now, I say it again, Andrew Brigdon is an incredibly brave man and an honourable man now to then look at the evidence, the evidence has come to him and he, over a period of time, would have assessed that evidence and by using parliamentary privilege, which frankly we should all have that privilege and we all, that is this thing called free speech, we can turn around and say well I believe this, there has been an accusation that we need to look into. We are, we are, we have a right to have our opinion and that's, why the whole address that Andrew Brigdon made was so important to many of us because he was articulating in the Houses of Parliament how we have felt when so many people, and a particular individual I can think of, where they're taken to court, they are prosecuted, because they've actually spoken up and said the truth. You know, it's outrageous. (HoO) Well, I want to jump over three more stories. I want to jump over to New Zealand, and this is following on, I'm sure we covered this last week on our program. This is second anti-vax, couple. Hey, everyone should be anti-vax at this stage. I certainly am anti-vax at this stage. I wasn't before, so thank you, my government for turning me into a full on anti-vaxer. Second anti-vax couple want unvaccinated blood for seriously ill toddler. And the issue was last time where a child's been taken away from a couple, not because actually there's surgery about to happen, but it's because it will have to happen at some point and they say they don't want unvaccinated blood. This is really scary, where we're going because obviously the concern is you get a blood transfusion, you're unvaccinated, you receive blood which has dangerous spike proteins, whatever else is in it, and then And actually you've chosen not to get injected by this experimental jab, but you get it through, a blood transfusion. And obviously our government don't give a damn, but they'll pump you with anything they want to. And I fear for this couple that the same thing will happen to them. They'll have their children taken away. (MS) Well, there is precedent through us through to this through different means. and we have to remember during the 90s of the, and just before that, of blood coming from American prisoners in America, and this was big then under the Clinton campaign, and I can speak anecdotally from first-hand experience where a dear friend of mine had a blood transfusion and and was then was then infectious with hepatitis B, etc. There has been a huge and praise God, completely healed. There has been a huge court case that started at the beginning of covid, no big nonsense because people had taken the finally the NHS in court were beginning to address this issue. And of course, it's been very convenient. Because people are now come to the New Zealand case in a minute. But this is important because people that were seeking compensation, a number of those people had died, a number of those people had contracted, you know, full-blown aids and all this rest. This is a reality and of course that blood was then brought over from America via prisoners. So this is appalling isn't it? So this couple have turned round and gone, no we're not vaccinated, we're not vaccinated. Reason we will now push this forward. Now there was a discussion on needing blood banks from unvaccinated people. And look at how there was enough division as it is. Then we create even more division and look at how this can absolutely carry out. At the moment, with great respect, hospitals are not the places that we want to end up in. Exactly. And I'm not saying that for a fact. So this couple desperately need our prayers, they're entitled. We look at, you know, Jacinda, Jacinda Mann de Hearn. I mean, this is just appalling. This is just appalling. I have prayed that that woman just gets kicked out politically. And that someone genuinely comes in who actually believes in that country and help turn things around. I cannot say enough how appalling this is. They have a right. They have a right to how their child is treated. They have a right to their opinion, which they can back up medically. Now, what would happen if this child then has a full blown transfusion? We then see the fact that that blood is tested, it is infected and all the rest. We don't even want to go down that road. But this could be happening in that case and in other people's cases. And why do they not respect, this is interesting, it's linked with the Scottish article that you put up earlier. Why do they not respond? The comments and the authority of the parents in this situation, because the state wants to own the children. This is another way of the state undermining family, and there has been enough attack on that as it is. (HoO) Yeah. Let's go to our final two stories, This one on immigration, which gets pushed to the sidelines whenever our children are being killed through a jab. Channel migrants to be housed in holiday camps. And that is that more than 44,000 migrants have crossed the channel this year and officials believe there are 6,000 more coming in the coming weeks. Disuse in off-season holiday parks, because they've used up all the hotels, are said to be turned into [48:19] accommodation for channel migrants as ministers attempt to reduce the $5.6 million, a day being spent on hotels, which is what, just over $2 billion. It's wonderful when you can turn up in the country. I certainly haven't had that privilege, Mark, turning up in the country and suddenly, well, your hotel is ready, sir. We know you haven't paid, but here, we'll give you accommodation. I guess we are paying for this nice jolly that these 44,000 men of fighting age are having? (MS) Well, absolutely. The issue that has to be said is that if you are not, as a country, able to defend your borders or in charge of your borders, then we have the definition of country being redefined. It's very, very simple, but this has been going on for a long time. We look at, of course, the migration issues in Europe that have gone on a couple of years ago and sadly a baby's body is washed up on the beach and then suddenly... Mass migration into Europe, into Germany, Sweden, etc. etc. This is the English Channel. In 1944, we crossed the English Channel. Hitler didn't come over. It was dealt with. We crossed, over the English Channel. We floated the Mulberry Harbours and we invaded Europe. It's a very, very busy, dangerous piece of water. The Navy helped in that situation. We of course had Dunkirk, a load of little ships went over and we brought all these soldiers back. Get the British Navy off its backside and out there and start turning these boats back. And the problem is, if under Teresa May you had signed the global migration compact without discussing that with the British public. And I had written a letter to my then Member of Parliament asking about this issue and a particular individual wrote back and I need to find these letters and publish them on my website, along with a few other letters on various subjects. And the issue was this, oh no, no, No, no, this won't affect us. It's very simple. It's very, very simple indeed. Turn them back. Get them back. This has to stop and you're right. The other issue of men coming over of a fighting age. John O'Looney has said some very, very interesting comments about this that we all need to do some research and follow up. Because if you want to cause chaos in a country, and let's just quickly look at Europe, we quickly look at what happened in Spain, Catalan, et cetera. At various times, and also in France with the yellow vest, at various times when police forces are in complete black Star Wars garb. Where they are unrecognizable, we then wonder where the particular forces that are in those uniforms have actually come from. And there is a correlation here. If you did want to put down the people of a particular country, you're not going to ask your local police force, your local army to actually do that because there will be personal relationships with that. We only have to go back to our own history of the miners strike in this country, where you were bringing up metropolitan police officers up to the Midlands and there wasn't the family commitments. That is what has been going on in Europe. I suspect we need to find the proof. So why are these gentlemen over here? With various crew cuts and all the rest. Is there a correlation between this? This accusation needs to be looked at very very quickly, but I'll tell you something if a country is not in charge of its own borders, if it's not in charge of its own money supply, if it's not in charge of its own laws, etc. And it's not. Then the definition of a country is then completely and utterly and in not in charge of its own language then the country is defined as a non country so ending if we end this in the in one sense if we look at the Tower of Babel biblically hence all that's going on, [53:19] hence that there is a repeat of that so if you then write the book the fourth Industrial Revolution which basically is the fourth Reich then this is the, situation you are using. You are using this situation to undermine the foundations of a country and to then change it. (HoO) Yeah. Let's finish off on two minutes on UK politics. We don't really want to talk depressing the state of politics in the UK, but this is a shock poll suggests Labour will win 314 Commons majority at general election and Tories will be left with just 69 MPs. Thank you Lord. And with even Rishi Sunak losing his seat. Projam, can you just scroll down just to the graph, to the map? There's a map all in red. There it is. There it is. That is what the UK will look like, after. And I kind of think it serves them right, Mark. And actually, under Keir Stammerick, I don't think it could be any worse. But what are your thoughts on these Rhino Tories getting kicked out? (MS) Whoa. Absolutely. Well, the problem is where, you know, every single party you could argue within the, within the commons is either socialist light, socialist extreme, socialist not so obvious, socialist obvious. Yeah. So, Keir Starmer, this is what the chattering classes of Islington, etc. This is what they want. And the press and all the rest, they have never forgiven Boris Johnson for the fact that he led the Brexit revolt, even though remember he's a populist. It's all about being popular. He's an opportunist. We can say, a number of us can say that now. is a is a closet liberal and and really if you really ask you know I don't believe is a conviction politician whatsoever. Yes you are right. The, issue is this is that so many of them they are all the same and the problem is about socialism it works wonders until they run out of other people's money. So, we have the SNP, we have the Welsh Nats, we have Sinn Fein, we have the Labour party and then of course we have these conservatives. A country that is not sorting out the fact that it needs to establish a manufacturing base, it needs to export basic economics. I'm not an economic expert but I am self-employed. That doesn't then work. It defines, it, impress one iota and of course it would be led by you know Starmer as an interesting individual people need to research his past however the the thing is what about what the low labor party backed in regard to coven no big they wanted something that was even even worse and worse lockdowns and worse this and worse that they're not in it you know what about life liberty and in the pursuit of happiness within our own, within our own country and freedom. They actually don't they don't want it because every single person virtually except Andrew Bridgen, except Esther McVey, except a few others. The rest of them believe in statism. The real quick issue is this. Whatever people think of Liz Truss now, you know, blowing up Nord Stream 1, Nord Stream 2. An interesting little theory there. The key thing is this, and Kwasi Kwateng Suddenly it was like, we need to go for economic growth. We need to grow ourselves out of this problem. Now, if you then create a huge downturn in the Asian markets and you deliberately go, oh, let's panic. Now we're gonna get rid of her. she then makes her. State, now we then bring in, we bring in this technocrat. There is no difference between Rishi Sunak and Starmer. There is no difference politically in either side. That's why I turn around and say slightly sarcastically, it's socialism light or it's socialism heavy. (HoO) Yeah, completely. Mark, thank you so much for coming on and sharing your views. Always Good to have you with us. So thank you for your time tonight. [57:44] (MS) And it's an absolute privilege and lovely to join you. And thank you. Thank you for letting me rant. I do appreciate it. (HoO) I enjoy your ranting. So don't you worry. It's always good fun. Let me just say there were there were two pictures just want to show you as we finish. Obviously, Sam Bankman Fried, who's the who set up a Ponzi scheme pretending it was a cryptocurrency and funded all the Democrats. Actually, he's on suicide watch now and I believe we've just got a picture of his prison guard so I think he does need to worry about his suicide watch. He may be no more. So do pray for Sam that, actually the same thing, he doesn't have an Epstein moment. Let me show the other two. This was a picture I sent someone who, this was at the airport whenever I flew back last time and this was an individual. I don't know where he put that on because he saw me, but anyway, that he was heading off to the airplane, wasn't on mine. And I said that to my friend. This is what they sent back. And I think it's a good model for us to live this week. And I know this doesn't apply to any of you. And it is this John Wayne quote, 'life is tough, but it's tougher when you're stupid' and I think sometimes we meet many stupid people. So, life is tough, but you watching are not stupid. You want to understand, you want to reason, but there are some stupid. So be gentle with the stupid people you meet this week. Be gentle with them. And on that, I wish our viewers a wonderful rest of your evening. Thank you for joining us. Enjoy the rest of your Saturday, your weekend, and we will see you with Richard Hirschman on Monday from the film Died Suddenly.
In today's "The Tudors in their own words", historian Claire Ridgway shares some poignant words Mary, Queen of Scots, said to a distressed servant while on her way to her execution in 1587.
Today's "The Tudors in their own words" quote is from Margaret Tudor, eldest daughter of King Henry VII and Elizabeth of York, and sister of Henry VIII. It is from a letter written not long after Margaret had been sent to Scotland to marry King James IV of Scotland. Margaret was writing to her father. Historian and author Claire Ridgway shares Margaret Tudor's words. Here's a link to the article I mentioned on Margaret's use of language - https://www.thefreelibrary.com/Written+like+a+%27gwd%27+Scotswoman%3a+Margaret+Tudor%27s+use+of+Scots%27.-a0475324386

You get to imagine you're visiting a friend in the majestic Old Town as well as the beautiful New Town. Learn what it was like to live in Scotland's capital city at the height of its glory.

All the way from the garden island of Kauai in fact. A tribute to Jim Stewart, co-founder of Stax Records with his sister Estelle Axton. Stax was an integrated music label during the dark days of segregation and had a profound effect on me and millions of others. So some classics from Stax, and then some music from Buffy Sainte-Marie, who was the subject of an incredible documentary on PBS the other week. Also a dash of Hawaiian music, and a salute to Scots singer / fiddler Megan Henderson (Breabach), who just won Traditional Artist of the Year at The Scots Trad Awards. Heaps of new releases, too!
This time on Making Stitches, I'm sharing a couple of chats I had recently with authors who have written about sewing and the power it gives, from offering respite and hope in the hardest of situations and a voice to those who have had theirs silenced and the simple ability to fix a hole in your clothes. Clare Hunter has worked with textiles for many years, working as a community artist, exhibition curator and banner maker. After hearing many stories about how important sewing and embroidery had been in peoples' lives throughout history, she decided to write a book about it. Threads of Life; The History of the World Through the Eye of a Needle was published in 2019 and went on to become a Sunday Times Bestseller. Inspired by what she learned about Mary Queen of Scots during her research for Threads of Life, Clare went on to write a book about her too, an alternative biography called Embroidering Her Truth; Mary Queen of Scots and Her Language of Power.You can find out more about Clare and her work through her website.Michelle Edwards is a children's author and illustrator working in the USA, her latest book; Me and the Boss; A Story About Mending and Love is based on a true story recounted to her in a yarn store one day. It charts the story of a young boy called Lee who is taken by his older sister (the Boss) to a sewing lesson in a public library. Along with the story, which is illustrated beautifully by April Harrison, is a sewing project for young readers to have a go at too. Michelle is passionate about teaching children about using their hands and has run childrens sewing classes herself as well as writing a column for a well known knitting magazine in the United States.You can find out more about Michelle and her work through her website.One of my former podcast guests, Olesya Lebedenko, a Ukrainian patchwork quilt designer and maker, who featured in Episode 41 is hosting a fundraising Art Quilt online auction.

Mary, Queen of Scots wore red at her execution as a symbol of Catholic martyrdom. It was the climax of a life throughout which Mary used textiles to advance her political agenda, affirm her royal lineage and tell her story - from her lavish gowns to the subversive messages she embroidered in captivity for her supporters. In this episode to mark the 480th anniversary of Mary's birth on 8 December 1542, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb talks to artist Clare Hunter - author of Embroidering Her Truth: Mary, Queen of Scots and the Language of Power - to discover more about Mary via the textiles of her life.
