Just want to throw a few interesting points out here, pending a more considered thought-process as more substantial information is released.

As I’m pressed for time and as the information about this attack is still being updated all the time, the notes below are just a quick, provisional observation.

But I include the usual disclaimer: nothing here is meant to downplay or question any suffering, trauma, injury or death that has occurred. I also fully acknowledge that today’s event in Westminster could’ve been a straight-up lone-wolf IS-inspired attack by an Islamo-Fascist jihadi: London has been on high alert for some time and an attack has been predicted.

But, as I said, a few notes. (more…)

I have decided – due to requests from several people – to stop writing negative things about Donald Trump or the Steve Bannon administration that has just come into the White House.

Even though I have serious misgivings about this new administration and its outlook (along with some more positive views on some specific ideas), I will – for a little while, at least – refrain from upsetting anyone any further or bursting any bubbles by asking questions or being too critical about the Trump White House.

Barring any particularly extraordinary event, this will be a Trump-free zone for a while. (more…)

Just as quick add-on to yesterday’s post about the Cheney/Rumsfeld regime’s torture programs and their psychological role in provoking so much of the modern radicalism and terrorism coming from the Middle East, there is another angle to this subject I wanted to touch on.

The interesting thing about torture – aside from its ineffectiveness in information-gathering – is that it is, conversely, regarded as highly effective in a completely different regard: as a form of mind control or psychological conditioning. (more…)

So I’ve been digging around a bit, and I’m going to come at this from a different angle.

Not going to bother pouring over footage or images and talking about the credibility of the scenes, etc, as there are others who’ll probably be doing that already. I choose to assume/believe the attack really did happen as we’re told it did and that innocent people were hurt or killed.

Instead, as with the Nice attack earlier in the year, the best angle might be found if we direct our attention to a seemingly unrelated bit of information. (more…)

Something announced recently by French media should really strike us as odd and potentially suspect.

The recent announcement, first by French newspaper Le Monde and then considered by others, that French media might stop publishing images or identities of terror perpetrators, is curious to say the least. (more…)

It won’t have escaped anyone’s attention that someone appears to have hit the ‘accelerate’ key on ‘terror attacks’ and professed ‘Islamist incidents’ in Europe. The last fortnight or so has seen a tangible ramping up of this campaign in France and Germany. (more…)

So, so sick of this BS.
And I know I’ve said that a number of times before, so let’s just get on with it. Let’s just expose this latest staged ‘terror attack’ nonsense quickly and be done with it – so that we can get on with our day.

This is a brief addendum to my post on Monday about the Orlando Massacre narrative: because subsequent oddities and inconsistencies in the story keep cropping up. I said on Monday that the story doesn’t add up; well it’s adding up even less now.

I’m not going to spend too long on this; as I’ve said before, I’m getting tired of this whole subject area.

Firstly, everyone who was killed, injured or traumatised by the attack in Orlando were innocent victims who deserved better – and who also deserve better than to be turned into a propaganda tool by either side of the political and societal divide. Our sympathies should always be with them, the innocent victims.

That doesn’t mean, however, that we should all sit, numbly watching the TV news reports and lazily taking all the information at face value and allowing that information to determine our world view.
