Editor’s Note: For people like Declan Hayes, VT has a special word, one rarely used. We call them a “Force of Nature”. The inference is that they are one of a kind. They could be or not be part of a larger group; but if needed, they can unilaterally roll up their sleeves and do things that typically would require a good-sized organization to accomplish.

I met Declan when he was one of the 35 international election monitors brought in to observe and report on the 2014 Syrian election. When it was over, our Canadian-Palestinian interpreter and I proofed the translation of the monitor’s certification that the election was fairly run.

Assad had expected to be savaged if he won, so he instituted election reforms beforehand. Note that the Syrian opposition during war time was very small, about 10% of the vote, primarily those running for their Parliament seats.

There was no way the Syrians were going to be changing leaders at that time, as the whole country had come to view Assad and the Army as one unit. Together they had saved Syria up to that point, and without whom ISIS and its many foreign backers would have marched into Damascus. Think about our own Roosevelt during WWII. It would have been inconceivable for anyone to successfully run against him during the war.

The election monitors submitted three choices on which cities they wished to be at on election day. I chose Homs, as ISIS had actually battled its way into the downtown financial district before being pushed back, and I wanted to interview some of the defenders there.

The long van rides through endless checkpoints allowed a lot of time for us all to share experiences and opinions.

Declan had been supporting the Catholic Hospital in Damascus for years, with I think his total at 4 million dollars. He has been all over Syria and is treated as a head of state whenever he goes. They also see him as a force of nature.

You are seeing this today, as Declan has sent me his latest report on having raised $2 million from walking Spain’s famous Camino pilgrim trail, all of which is passed on to the Syrian nuns to distribute where most needed.

I wanted you to have the experience of seeing him in action, the fiery Irish rebel, but the pickings were slim on YouTube, as he seems to have enemies like VT who would prefer we disappear. But I did find a New Horizon address he gave in Tehran in 2016, and it will give you a good taste of Declan the rebel Irishman.

Editor’s Note 2: Well, it seems someone did now want you to watch the video. Forward we go. They now have this pitiful act on their record, and we continue to build ours.

By the way, the Irish government is fully onboard all the fake wars as part of NATO and there is no love lost between it and Declan. It is a pleasure to share with you the story of what one man can do if he wants to.

I have a short bio at the end and included his book list; and yes, it is not a misprint, they are all 99 cents. This is a different kind of guy here. So I will pass you on now to Dr. Declan HayesJim W. Dean ]

Misery Industry Disrupters

by Dr. Declan Hayes

First published January 9, 2022

Having visited Syria over a dozen times during the current Crisis, all other doors being closed, I am now reduced to raising money for the Italian Hospital in Damascus. So far, I have raised in excess of $4,000,000, half of it from walking Spain’s famous Camino pilgrim trail across three mountain ranges to Santiago, where the Apostle James lies buried.

Quite apart from the considerable spiritual benefits of such pilgrims (which I have given to political prisoner Julian Assange, whose family are personal friends of mine), I have the more tangible benefit of disrupting MI5’s misery industry, which feeds off tragedies such as those in Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Libya.

Ireland is a global leader in this industry; her major charities and NGOs are key players in distributing non-lethal aid to the terrorists and putting a thin sheen of respectability on NATO’s war crimes. As if that were not enough, the Muslim Brotherhood, the world’s deadliest terrorist group, has its European headquarters on one side of Dublin’s Liffey River and Saudi Arabia has a massive Cultural (sic) Center on the other.

Those legions of Irish whores allied to them by conviction or by brown envelopes include former Irish Presidents like Mary Robinson and lowly politicians like Gerry Horkan and Ivana Bacik, whose grand-father ran four mega factories for the Waffen SS until the Soviet Red Army’s 9 May, 1945 entry into Prague ended his gallop

The Muslim Brotherhood’s pawns and the pampered grand daughters of Nazi war criminals are not the only obstacles to overcome. Samara’s Appeal, to take but one example, is a British based charity linked to the Anglican Church, aka MI5 at prayer.

Samara Levy, its leader, who is descended from a long line of revered Egyptian rabbis, is so embedded with the British establishment that her charity does not have to disclose its board of directors and leading publishers sell her books and Anglican priests and bishops endorse them even though she is a patent, well-connected fraud.

Samara, however, like the rest of them, is protected as are all the other Anglican spies who have recently infiltrated Syria and whose role is to exploit the miseries and hardships their leaders are inflicting on those they spy on.

This leads to the question of what we, with our limited resources, can do when most avenues to action are firmly locked and when the only options seemingly open to us are to help the frauds, the spies, and the self-servers.

Although there are great Syrians of all religions and none doing great work there, because the Italian Hospital is a case apart for several reasons, billionaires, millionaires, and ordinary folk have given me money to send on to them, either via my tinyurl.com/SyrianHeart page, my http://Declanito.com/ site or directly, through the Salesian nuns in Rome and other credible groups I am allied with.

These donors know that every cent ends up with the nuns in Syria and, like Sophie’s Choice, they spend all of it as judiciously as possible, trying to save as many babies and young mothers as they can.

Although I have also paid for heart operations out of my own pocket and have given to Shia, Melkite, Alawi and Druze communities as well, focusing on the Irish, Italian and Syrian Salesian nuns in the Italian hospital allows full accountability and it puts the criminal regimes of Italy and Ireland and their NGOs and faux charities on the spot. Why do they not help these selfless nuns and why do they instead line their own pockets, as well as those of the Muslim Brotherhood head hackers?

The all-pervading censorship means those and similar questions will never be asked, let alone answered through the mainstream media, which heap praise on the religious crooks, who are as culpable as any other war criminal.

Further, as this youtube video shows, even interviewing Sr Doody, I have to be careful with donors’ names lest the Muslim Brotherhood attack them, as they have repeatedly attacked me. But that is just a tactic for, if we live in hope, if we persist, we will, despite the massive loss of Syrian, Yemeni, Palestinian, Iraqi and Libya life, prevail.

For my part, I will continue to raise money for Syria’s Salesians, not only to allow them to continue their good work but to tell our lords, ladies and masters, that not all of us have one of their price tags jutting out of our ear.
