In a 2015 article concerning this deployment of troops in France, I wrote of the thousands of armed soldiers that were about to be deployed into the streets as a move that bears a striking resemblance to the beginnings of Martial Law in Europe…’

I also said in the same post that London would probably follow.

I actually don’t want to bother talking about the Parsons Green incident itself – but to explore a broader question about the response to it; and about the idea of armed soldiers being out in public to protect us from terror threats.

We can mostly skip the usual repetoire concerning the ‘terror incident or false flag?’ question (analysing footage, lack of CCTV, speculation on ‘crisis actors’, etc) and leave that to others.

A crude explosive device was apparently to blame for the tube incident in Parsons Green (though, from photos, it appears not to have damaged the bucket or container it was in), with around two dozen or so people reportedly injured and needing hospitalisation.

Quite possibly this IED was placed by a terrorist, ISIS sympathiser or lone wolf. And possibly it wasn’t. (more…)

Seriously? A ‘Day of Rage’?
The problem I have with this protest in London is two-fold. The first is wanting to ‘bring down the government’ (according to the event page on Facebook), which is totally wrongheaded.

And I say this as someone who generally supports Jeremy Corbyn.

The second reason is much more ominous to me – and is to do with language, branding and connotations. I’ll get to that in a moment.

Anyone who reads this blog often enough knows that I’m not defending Theresa May’s government. And most of the reasons people are angry with the government and protesting against it are reasons I entirely agree with. (more…)

It is not all that often that something happens that seems to conveniently bring together so many of the different subjects I’ve been talking about recently.

In this case, concerning Theresa May and the DUP, this article manages to string together multiple subjects I’ve been posting about previously, including false-flag terrorism, MI5 and state collusion with terrorist activity, the ‘Secret Courts’ that Britain introduced in 2013 (which was alluded to in the Police State piece), and even the creeping rise of international fascist networks that I covered at great length in an article called ‘Seeds of Fascism‘.

The immediate fall-out from the June 8th election has actually brought all of these subjects into one extraordinary ‘tag cloud’ that I hadn’t anticipated – and which I will try to explain here. (more…)

Before the usual calls to either (a) give away all our remaining privacy and liberties for the sake of security, or (b) round up all those awful brown people and send them to a camp (an actual suggestion that was being made on social media again by multiple users), there’s a couple of things worth considering about yesterday, terrorism and even Ariana Grande herself.

First, what happened last night may well have been a straightforward terror attack (or act of mass murder) by an extremist, possibly linked to ‘ISIS’ or by some terrorist monster who identifies with the ‘ISIS’ cause or thinks innocent concert-goers, including children, are a suitable target.

The official narrative may be all true. I won’t raise the question of ‘crisis actors’ or a simulated event (although some have already raised those questions, based on the available footage and pictures), but I will assume that a large number of innocent people genuinely have been killed or injured.

All I’m presenting here are some other observations, all of which can be dismissed if you don’t like them; or if you prefer to simply follow the #PrayForManchester or #PrayForAriana hashtags instead. (more…)

With all the current talk and bluster concerning North Korea, nuclear weapons and possible war, the arrival of a massive drill/exercise in the US has excited the interest of a number of conspiracy theorists.

From April 18th right through to May 5th, a ‘major nuclear detonation drill’ has been widely reported, taking place in the New York/New Jersey area and apparently involving a number of federal, state and local organisations. Called ‘Operation Gotham Shield’, the exercise is said to involve 4 nuclear devices and is presented as a preparation/simulation of a nuclear incident. (more…)

Theresa May’s sudden call for a General Election – to be held on June 8th – caught many by surprise.

Having previously said on multiple occasions that she didn’t intend to hold another election, she suddenly changed her mind.

The question is why. (more…)

After the St Petersburg attack a few weeks ago, I specifically predicted there would be a staged terror attack in France just prior to the presidential elections.

Here’s what I wrote at the time. ‘I want to go on record as predicting there may be a staged terror attack somewhere in France between now and the weekend: or, perhaps more likely, some time between now and the second round of the French Presidential Elections in May. I hope there isn’t: but I suspect there will be and, if so, it will probably be aimed at bolstering support for Marine Le Pen and the Front National.’

So I’ve very much been expecting one. As it happens, this ‘terrorist attack’ in Paris occurs just a couple of days before the start of the presidential election. (more…)

Unsurprisingly, more or less every image of the sarin attack victims being circulated in international media seems to have involved the infamous White Helmets or bears their logo.

However many Nobel Peace Prizes they might get nominated for or however many Oscars they win, the White Helmets (funded by the US, UK and France) has already been extensively discredited and is a fake media/false-flag operation in the form of a Hollywood-ised NGO and embedded with Al-Qaeda and other jihadists in Syria (see here, or go straight to Vanessa Beeley’s work).

It should be enough that the White Helmets have previously been caught with Al-Nusra (Al-Qaeda) and other extremist militias and have also been caught on numerous occasions faking videos or images to provoke Western powers into attacking the Syrian government: but the fact that CNN and various media outlets, along with various Western officials, have once again based their entire condemnation of the Assad government solely on ‘evidence’ provided by the White Helmets and foreign-backed rebels in Idlib is both highly suspect and business as usual.

I’m so bored of trying to talk about terror attacks in Europe, and also so unable to keep up with the rate at which these things are occurring, that I don’t have time to look into yesterday’s lorry attack in Stockholm, Sweden, in any great detail.

I have written and posted repeatedly and at length lately about false-flag operations and controlled terrorism. This one, for all I know, may have been a genuine terror attack with no state collusion.

Someone in Sweden has helpfully directed my attention towards this, however. The official page, belonging to Swedish security and counter-terrorism forces, has a notice in Swedish. But the translation informs visitors of the following: ‘Swedish Police, Armed Forces and Security Service for two days conducted a joint exercise. The purpose was to practice cooperation between authorities in a terrorist attack in Sweden.’ (more…)
