I’ve been pondering this for some time; and have tried to somewhat lay out the subject as best as I can here in this article.

This is something of a thought-experiment; trying to track the various strands of consequences from a single event, but moreover, trying to understand why that event has everything to do with where we are now – and on multiple levels – in this first decade-and-a-half of the twenty-first century.

With all the bad things and negative situations going on in the world today, why have things come to this? How could most of this stuff – in the Middle East, in Europe, even in the US – have been avoided?

Could it have been avoided? (more…)

Having reiterated the general case for Princess Diana (and Dodi Fayed) having been assassinated, there has also for a long time now been a case to be made – as hinted at yesterday – for the assassination having also been a ritual/sacrifice possibly designed to speak to veiled occult interests.

Although I often urge caution when dealing with subjects like this, concerning the Princess of Wales’s death specifically this idea has always appeared to carry some weight.

This idea, which has gathered a lot of steam over the years, centers on the fact that the site of the car accident was once the site of a temple to the goddess Diana; and, according to some, was a location of underground chambers where ritual sacrifices used to be carried out (to the goddess Diana; and established by Merovingians some time between 500 – 750 AD).

In Roman mythology, Diana – representative of the Sacred Feminine – was the goddess of nature, childbirth, hunting and the protector of the weak. She was also equivalent to (and linked with) the Egyptian goddess Isis.

The limo also happened to crash into the thirteenth pillar of the tunnel – which appears to have all kinds of significance in terms of the Merovingians (see here, for example – I’m not necessarily endorsing everything that other people have written, but simply asserting the fact that the 13th pillar seems very signficant in a way that is difficult to ignore).

On the matter of Grace Kelly (pictured above with Diana and Charles), I’ll come to that at the end and explain why I think it may be relevant. (more…)

On May 5th 2000, police in the south of France found a burnt body in the wreckage of a car, deep into the woods close to Nantes.
The dead body was so extremely charred that it took a month for the DNA tests to ascertain the victim’s identity.

The burnt man in the car was Jean-Paul ‘James’ Andanson. The millionaire photographer had been one of the paparazzi following Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed during their last days before the fatal crash that killed them.

In 1999, the French investigation concluded that the Mercedes carrying Diana and Dodi had come into contact with another vehicle (specifically a white Fiat Uno) in the tunnel. The driver of that vehicle has never been properly identified (neither has the specific vehicle). (more…)

The Lockerbie bombing in 1988 was perhaps the 9/11 of its time.
While it didn’t result in the kind of phony Global ‘War on Terror’ that was conducted after 9/11, it did give the US and Britain the platform for beginning a targeted downfall of a particular nation and society, this being Libya.

This was accomplished the same way in Libya as it was accomplished in Iraq: first by years and years of crippling sanctions and forced hardship (via the UN),then by all-out destruction against a nation that is no longer able to defend itself (Iraq in 2003, Libya in 2011).

There are essentially two ways to look at Lockerbie.

One, the most important, is as a criminal investigation of an act of mass murder. The other is as a prolonged political or geo-political tool serving multiple purposes. Both are worth revisiting; particularly as the ghost of Lockerbie (and all of its victims) has reappeared in news media in the last few weeks.

Revisiting the subject of Lockerbie is important both as a study of geo-politics and the place of political terrorism within that arena and as a study in history and how it relates to contemporary events.

I want to take a broad overview of the Lockerbie subject here, touching on all of those areas: this article will cover (1) the reasons why the ‘official’ story of Lockerbie is so problematic and disputed, (2) the release of the ‘Lockerbie Bomber’ from prison in Scotland and why it happened, (3) the political and geopolitical motives and consequences of the Lockerbie trial and verdict, and finally (4) the many different theories as to who really did carry out the Lockerbie bombing and why.

It is interesting, as the tensions and provocations between North Korea, the US and China continue, that it wasn’t that long ago when South and North Korea appeared to be moving mutually towards more cooperation and friendlier relations.

Things, it appeared, could’ve been very different. 

Before South Korea’s more conservative presidents decided to  break ties with North Korea (from around 2008) their more liberal, progressive predecessors – Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun – had been seeking a peaceful engagement and rapprochement with the north.

This approach was called the “sunshine policy.” (more…)

This is probably the most important thing that will be posted on this site this year, so I would ask anyone here to read it all the way through and then draw your own conclusions.

The underlying theme that emerges from this article – which I have been putting together since December – is one of a possible international conspiracy behind the radical shifts in Western politics that may be occurring: that the perceived ‘rise of the Far Right’ across Western societies is not just a simple reactionary movement based on anti-immigration sentiment or refugee hysteria, but something more planned and with more obscured roots.

It is also a case of those simpler, more obvious things too, of course: there are multiple causes for the current wave of ‘populism’ and angry mobs. But it would fit this paradigm best to remember the quote by Dennis Healey about nothing in international politics happening by accident but being made to happen.

What follows in this article then is (1) what I conclude to be a demonstrable conspiracy, (2) some demonstration of what the connections are that support this conclusion, and (3) what the root of that conspiracy is and what its aim might be. (more…)

A brief word in respect for Labour MP Gerald Kaufman, who passed away a few days ago.

Kaufman, who served as a Member of Parliament from 1970 until his death in 2017, was the longest-serving MP in the House.

It was curious that Kaufman happened to pass away at precisely the time I was putting the finishing touches on a very extensive article that I’ve been working on since December – specifically about the extremist nationalists in Israel and about Israeli agencies’ connection to the rising Far-Right parties and politicians in Europe and the West.

Augustus is without doubt one of the most fascinating figures of history; and also one of the ancient historical figures we know most about because he left such clear marks on the world: politically, religiously, even physically.
He wanted everyone to know who he was, when he lived and what he did.

I started writing this article originally to mark the 2,000th anniversary of his death, which was in 2014: but I was waiting for Rome to restore and reopen the derelict Mausoleum of Augustus before posting it. That was the plan that had been announced by authorities in Rome at the time; but the highly anticipated restoration and re-opening of the Mausoleum never materialised, due to lack of funds.

2016 was then given as a date in which the project would finally see fruition; but so far there have been no announcements of progress – a subject I already covered here.

So, having waited a long time, I belatedly post this article up now: in commemoration of one of the greatest figures of history, a man still being written and argued about 2000 years after he shook off his mortal coil. (more…)

He walked up to the podium to address the UN General Assembly.
All eyes in the chamber were on the strange, eccentric figure, whose invitation to New York had been the subject of great controversy and coverage. Staring out at all the delegations of world government, he acted out ripping up the UN Charter, calling it “worthless”.
