Aaaand so the Tommy Robinson shit-show just goes on. And on. And on and on.

I give credit to Nigel Farage for jumping ship before the Shit Show really gets going. He writes: “The very idea of Tommy Robinson being at the centre of the Brexit debate is too awful to contemplate…”

Actually the very idea of ‘Tommy Robinson’ is almost too awful to contemplate.

I suspect Farage thinks ‘Tommy’ is being inserted into the Brexit game to deliberately tarnish or undermine the Brexit momentum further. And he is probably right. Speaking even as someone who never cared about Brexit anyway (but who nevertheless sympathises with it), ‘Tommy’ is going to help sink that ship – at precisely the same time as a serious likelihood is now being discussed in political circles of a second Referendum to try to resolve the Brexit problem (and won’t that be fun?).

So, I’ve covered ‘Tommy’ here a bunch of times already: see here, here and here. The last time being upon his ‘release’ from jail earlier this year (reality check: ‘Tommy’ was probably never in jail) and the #FreeTommy psy-op that thousands of useful idiots took part in.

The Useful Idiot demographic is really spiralling – and ‘Tommy’ and his sponsors must be very happy. (more…)

I’ve been a little late focusing on the ‘Yellow Vest’ protests or strikes in France.

But it seems to me, given a cursory reading of various sources, like a legitimate, mass expression of dissatisfaction with the French establishment politicians. A lot of people in France are fed up and have decided to group together to make their discontent heard.

There have been conspiracy theories flying all over the place (aren’t there always?): ranging from the protests being led by Le Pen supporting fascists to a theory that it’s a Color Revolution being orchestrated by Trump and the US to unseat Macron or a Russian-influenced movement to further destabilise the West.

None of the ‘theories’ or unnecessary add-ons to the narrative that I’ve seen are convincing.

And there’s one particular strand of Deliberate Misinformation that is particularly sinister – which I’ll focus on shortly.

Because, as much as this is an article about the Yellow Vest protests, it is also an article about the sinister information war – which weaves through all of the idealogical divide, ‘culture war’ and socio-political crisis occuring in Western nations.

My purpose here is not to question the French protesters, but to debunk the lies of the people who are deliberately misrepresenting the protests.

From what I can tell, it looks like the Yellow Vest protests are just people in France being genuinely fed up. There are probably elements in there who inserted themselves into the situation just to cause trouble or create violence – but that’s always what happens. In reality, it seems simply that a lot of ordinary, dissatisfied people in France have had enough of taking the hit for elite 1% interests: and that a protest like this has been building for a long time.

So, to be clear, nothing in this article is calling into question the motives or intentions of the actual French protesters themselves – who seem to be in solidarity with each other and against the corrupt, elite interests dominating France.

However (and unfortunately, perhaps), ever since the ‘Arab Spring’, I do get suspicious of sudden eruptions of mass protests that come packaged with a symbol or slogan. (more…)

Just when you thought the massive, endless distraction/pantomime of Planet Trump couldn’t get any sillier, the President ditches his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: and is replacing him with who? Oh, just the head of the CIA.

What’s even dumber is that, given all of the mainstream media hysteria over alleged Trump ‘collusion’ with Russia, the President chose to announce Tillerson’s redundancy right after Tillerson had publicly criticised Russia for its alleged involvement in the nerve-agent incident in Salisbury.

Just an add-on here to some of what I was talking about yesterday.
The more I look at the entire paradigm, the stranger it gets and the more I wonder if we’re trapped in a kind of weird reality TV show.

I use the term ‘reality TV show’ not just because the US President is a former reality TV star; but because the term ‘reality TV’ doesn’t, strictly speaking, denote a ‘fake’ reality, but a kind of staged production that nevertheless purports to be showing us a true reality (even though, in many cases, a reality TV show isn’t showing us a true reality at all).

In the previous article, I was talking about how some of the alt-right opinion-makers and figureheads are probably psy-op merchants, helping to advance a divide-and-conquer agenda by brainwashing gulible people. (more…)

It’s fair to say that what unfolded in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday is the kind of thing that has been expected for some time now.
The ongoing inflamation of identity politics and provocation of divide-and-conquer or ‘strategy of tension’ conditioning has been paving the way for incidents like this one; with more probably to come.

What has been building – and has been amplified (deliberately or otherwise) by last year’s toxic presidential election – for some time has been a societal breakdown, racial tension and an atmosphere of totally toxic ideological conflict.

It has been inflamed deliberately and carefully by both the mainstream media and elements on the Left (or probably more accurately, elements involved in manipulating aspects of the Far Left) and, more openly and overtly, by the Right and Far-Right (with the so-called ‘Alt Right’ media also carefully stirring things up as much as possible). (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…)

Following on from considering the symbolic (and the actual) disparity of a millionaire/billionaire cabal with shared business interests governing – supposedly – for the well-being of ordinary and even economically disadvantaged people, we then look naturally to see what kind of people these are, what they believe in and what sort of world-view they bring with them into office.

A lot of people have worried for a long time what a Trump victory would end up actually meaning, aside from a perceived victory for some of the most dubious groups or interests in America – and, via osmosis, potentially Europe and the West. (more…)

The Far Right extremist charged with the sadistic murder of Labour MP Jo Cox in June has been given a whole-life sentence.

The 53 year-old Thomas Mair stabbed and shot the 41 year-old mother of two in broad daylight outside her constituency office in Birstall, West Yorkshire, just over a week before the UK’s EU Referendum vote. At the conclusion of his trial, it is confirmed he will spend the rest of his life in jail. (more…)
