Establishment Attempt A Political Assasination ?
1 Dismiss, 2 Ridicule, 3 Attack, 4 …..
The established hierarchy in this country enjoy the little world they have created for themselves. So when a group like DDI come along and tell the people the government and their institutions are actually their employees and should be doing what they tell them, well, these people get a little uncomfortable.
At first they pretended DDI didn’t exist, but we wouldn’t go away. We just continued to spread the message and we grew because the message is what people want. So then they ridiculed us as right wing, then left wing, then freemen, then extremists, then crazy or racist or criminal. We think the latest one is fascist (chortle) but the list is endless and completely contradictory. However, every time they did it more people joined us and followed us.
Not realising their folly the powers that be decided, as ridicule didn’t work, that they would attack us instead. So we are disrupted from within, we are given negative reports in press, unwarranted accusations with no right of reply. Hit piece television shows made from cutting room floor scraps of much larger interviews. Commentary and comment on all of these things across media and news. Blocked from getting on media while this is happening. Some of our regional members have also been personally libeled in print and even physically intimidated and had their homes attacked. A pretty concerted effort by the powers that be and their useful idiots in the opposition groups.
So it was no surprise to us at all six weeks ago when Ben Gilroy was singled out from 200 people who attended the taking back of a Kildare stud farm by the administrators of the trust to which it belonged. The judicial pantomime that followed seemed to be perfectly timed to knock Ben out of the debate in the run up to the Seanad and Appeal courts referendums. It worked, but only in that it stopped Ben getting on tv and radio to put the ‘No’ argument over properly. Stopping him give tv viewers the vital EU related information that Fianna Fail seemed to deliberately omit from their arguments. However it didn’t work in stopping the members in DDI who went out en-masse regardless of whether Ben was available or not. DDI people do not focus on leaders. They do DDI work autonomously because they believe in it, and when the leader is attacked the party does not fall, as much as the establishment media would like it to.
Now Ben has no involvement in the trust that owns the farm in question, but his work with People for Economic Justice brought them together in the same fight. It seems the authorities don’t want ordinary people knowing about the existence of trust law in Ireland. Something the hierarchy have used to protect their own assets for centuries. It is very interesting that media have consistently ridiculed the idea that ordinary people should be allowed to use trust law to protect themselves too.
This whole scenario has thrown up some pertinent questions regarding the sequence of events that are already in the public domain, that we think people should demand answers for:
Why was Ben Gilroy, singled as one of only 3 out of 200 people present, many of them high profile, for a breach of a court order?
Why was he singled out when he was only an observer and was not taking an active role in the repossession of the property by the trust?
Why has there never been a summons issued in this matter?
Why as the only political figure present, was Ben singled out for a public character assassination by putting a notification of proceedings in a national newspaper?
Why did the receivers’ representatives ask for this to be put in the newspaper instead of serving them personally in the normal way and producing a summons?
What possible reason could you give for not being able to find a man who lives in a family home and takes his kids to school every day?
Why when the documents were not properly served, nor a summons ever produced, would a judge issue an arrest warrant?
Why, when other high profile people amongst the 200 challenged the court to issue a warrant for their arrest too, were they ignored?
How, as they said in court, is it possible for receivers to have already sold the land when there is an undecided legal issue regarding ownership of the land by the trust that has not even been challenged in court? Surely this leaves any purchaser in a terrible legal quagmire?
In the end Ben attended court today for a very brief time and was happy to finally be given the documents and affidavits of the receivers in the proper manner. The judge had no problem then giving Ben two weeks to respond to the documents and everyone walked away happy. We will be happy to welcome as many supporters as possible to crowd into court in three weeks time to see that justice is done.
So what on earth was the whole issue about in the first place, leaving Ben and his family on edge for a month and a half? To the dogs in the street this looks like an attempted political assassination? Irish people are not fools and they see straight through this kind of gangsterism. Despite the intentions of the media coverage of this in the news, we saw big jumps in our membership.
What the political elite don’t seem to understand is that every time they attack DDI the people don’t take their word for it. They come and have a nosy at our website and find out what the real message is. Once there they get to see all the positive things we write about and the revelations about the status quo and all it’s criminality, lies and propaganda.
So we want to thank the orchestrators of the ridicule and the attacks. We thank the newspaper hacks, the tv ‘journalists’, the radio talking heads, and the insecure political opponents who made it all possible. You have made us bigger and stronger. In the days following the Prime Time hit piece alone our website gained over a thousand new subscribers who now get to see the truth and spread the word.
Irish people are no longer naive enough to think that political reach in this country doesn’t extend in to every branch of government and into all institutions of any importance. None are exempt, and many are government appointed. People are well aware now and see what’s going on behind the curtain. The people will not stand for this any longer.
Media gatekeeping must stop
Since the frenzy in the wake of the by-election on March 27th died down DDI have been largely ignored by mainstream press and media for around 6 months. We are always in contact with them but hardly ever manage to get a positive story printed or a place to comment on the airwaves. Even our ‘No’ campaign in the recent referendums was ignored, despite sending in articles, and talking to editors and programming controllers. We even saw information from articles we had sent in for publishing being used days later in articles by others and credited to other parties.
Then hey presto, suddenly six months later the press are falling over themselves to write about DDI. and add us to news bulletins and points of discussion on TV and radio, and even making tv shows about us. Of course you guessed it, all reports were as negative as they could make them. Even if they had to misrepresent the truth to do it. We are sure they will say it is our imagination and they only publish public interest. Well actions speak louder than words mainstream media and your actions are literally screaming corruption and dedication to the status quo. The whole world is now watching you across cyberspace. . . and they are not impressed.
We are getting reports from around the world that people are seeing how the Irish media are behaving towards this new movement that espouses people controlling their own country, and frankly they are shocked. The people in Switzerland where direct democracy has worked for hundreds of years are especially stunned at why Irish media would attack this idea, and it is becoming a big talking point in their country.
The collective methods used by the media and the branches of the establishment are now so patently obvious that the public are wondering how those working in the media aren’t dying of embarrassment at the amateurish nature and transparency of the propaganda.
We would suggest to the media now that they think very hard and decide on which side of history they would like to be remembered.
