Watching news coverage of events in Venezuela, you would be forgiven for thinking you’d been transported back in time to the Arab Spring – except this is happening on the other side of the globe.

But almost all of what appears to be happening in the Latin American country seems to be resemble a carbon copy of what transpired in Libya in 2011. The parallels are obvious; but I will point out some specifics where appropriate.

Which is not to portray Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro as any kind of angel or to absolve his government of any responsbility for the problems in Venezuela. But we should always be guarded when the mass media decides to start covering ‘protests’ on the other side of the world and does so with a clear bias, indicating a prefabricated agenda. (more…)

In the article on the Charlottesville unrest and the broader issues of sectarian rifts and societal breakdown, I wrote about the possible psy-op properties and divide-and-conquer strategy being applied.
I also wrote that ‘our hope should be that the majority of people are more intelligent and discerning than that and will refuse to get drawn into the psy-op.’

That is to say I hope that most intelligent people are too discerning to be duped into de-evolving or into being forced into the societal equivalent of an ancient gladiatorial arena.

I hinted at this yesterday in the post about Geert Wilders – though I didn’t suggest it being a conspiracy at the time. (more…)

Before commenting on the protests still going on around America, I want to establish two things first. Firstly, Donald Trump won the election: eventually that will simply have to be accepted.

Second, I really don’t have a clear sense of what’s going on at the moment behind the scenes or of what is going to unfold in the months ahead. When I say that, what I mean is that I don’t know if something is going on behind closed doors that will prevent Trump even becoming president. And we don’t know what’s going to develop between now and January; whether the violence is going to escalate, whether serious measures are going to have to be taken to restore order if the unrest escalates, or even whether there could be assassination attempts.
