  • Is the Governance of America Returning to its Roots?

    2021-03-07

    This site has previously ventured somewhat timidly into the tangled history of the governance of theUnited States, by way of setting the scene for events which may now be in train to finally wrest political control back to the American people - the much quoted but also much subverted "government of the people, by the people, and for the people". If you didn't read that already, I would suggest doing so, although it is not a prerequisite.

    As far as I am able to understand, following the American Civil War (and maybe even earlier), the previous Congress was effectively discontinued

  • UK's "Net Zero" Costs Were Understated?

    2021-03-05

    Did Conservative ministers mislead the people about the true estimated costs of the UK achieving "net zero" emissions by 2050?

    The Sun believes so.

    Now it is true that these figures as now reported were the result of computer modelling by "scientists", so we must hope that their modelling skills were better than those employed at Imperial College for the Covid estimates, but the good news is that if these estimates were indeed overblown by a similar magnitude then the government was probably too cautious in publishing an estimate only £20bn below the modelling result.

    Sadly however I am aware of no evidence that the likely error would be on a par with that achieved by Imperial College, so the Sun may well be correct - I guess it all comes down to the likely motivation which led the government to allegedly quote a lower figure

  • The Corona Investigative Committee Strikes Back!

    2021-03-05

    Sadly this title doesn't capture the immediacy of a certain Star Wars film title, but it will have to suffice.

    We have reported before on Dr Fuellmich and his campaign to find out the truth behind the pandemic narrative that swept the world in 2020, and his Committee has now published their unambiguous and uncompromising report:

    "The corona crisis must be renamed the “Corona Scandal"

    "... a PCR-test pandemic, not a corona pandemic"

    "Politicians and mainstream media deliberately drove populations to panic"

    "... those responsible for it must be criminally prosecuted and sued for civil damages"

    Brexit Agreement Starts to Unravel?

    2021-03-05

    Caroline Bell writing for Briefings for Britain reviews the state of the NI Protocol and the shenanigans taking place around it.

    Things must be bad if Lord Frost is brought back into the frame! Perhaps his negotiated agreement suffers from the traditional "constructive ambiguity" so beloved of negotiators when the clock has stopped ticking . . .? Or perhaps in EU hands that becomes "destructive ambiguity"? We shall see, but the contrast between the UK-EU and the UK-US negotiations is striking.

    "Hostages will be taken"

    Does the EU want a trade deal or not? It might be thought that it has never negotiated for a trade deal, but always for keeping

  • How the Government Controls the Media Messaging

    2021-03-05

    Journalist David Rose interviewed by Anna Brees on how the government (and its agencies) effectively bully the MSM into towing the line and thus maintain their hegemony over the messages that reach the public.

  • Our Government's Covid Abuse Programme?

    2021-03-03

    Lockdown Sceptics continue the theme that we are in an abusive relationship with our government. The behaviours exhibited are typically assumed to be relevant in a domestic household situation, often but not always between partners and spouses.

    We have explored this notion before, but it is good to remind ourselves occasionally of what is very evidently still going on.

    As "case" numbers fall through the floor and hospital admissions begin to dry up, how much longer will this go on? Presumably until the population at large comes to its senses and says enough is enough.

  • So What Exactly Is Covid-19?

    2021-03-02

    Is it a bird? Is it a 'plane? Is it a weird tennis ball with knobs on?

    No it's a virus! Or so we are assured by those who claim to know. Indeed also by those who demand our subservience to their many and ever-changing diktats.

    The same people incidentally that assure us equally firmly that vaccines were the undoubted cause of the health improvements in the general population observed during the 20th century just gone. Since this is the overwhelming consensus of all the official health bodies world-wide, we are to believe them, and yet . . .  science does not normally advance through consensus (ask Albert Einstein).

    In fact, consensus can be thought to be a block to scientific advance. Because so many of those who need to be convinced of a different and better understanding have made significant personal investments in that consensus, they are understandably reluctant to challenge it. Bearing in mind the many $billions (more probably $trillions or even

  • The Texan Snow that Didn't Melt?

    2021-03-01

    We all read about the severe weather conditions in Texas recently, and we may have noticed various reports that this "snow" didn't melt when exposed to a flame (but did blacken). But I notice that like snow everywhere, after a few days it disappeared.

    So was there any reality to this odd story? I don't know, but in view of the considerable belief that man-made weather does in fact occur all over the world (floods in China etc) maybe it's worth some consideration.

    The USA Watchdog site has the story.

  • South Dakota Governor Speaks to CPAC

    2021-02-28

    Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota reviews South Dakota's reaction to the Covid emergency:

    "Covid didn't crush the economy - Government crushed the economy"

    "South Dakota is the only state in America that never ordered a single business or church to close, we never instituted a shelter-in-place order, we never mandated that people wear a mask, we never even defined what an "essential business" is because I don't believe that the governors have the authority to tell you that your business isn't essential"

    "In South Dakota I provided all of the information that we had to our people, and then I trusted them to make the best decisions for themselves, for their families, and in turn their communities"

    "Dr Fauci told me that on my worst day I would have 10,000 patients in my hospitals - on our worst day, we had a little over 600"

    The Psychology of Bad Politicians

    2021-02-27

    This is a must-view for those of us who realise that politicians are not representing our interests, and would  like to understand why it is that such politicians appear fickle, incompetent, even venal (and I hasten to add that not all politicians fit this alarming profile, just that too many do).

    I am not suggesting that this video has all the answers.

    Firstly it is US-centric, which is actually useful in so far as we perhaps don't already have such an emotional reaction to US as we do to UK politics, so we may be better positioned to adopt an impartial viewpoint.

    Secondly it is firmly grounded in what I will call the mistakes of US politics - although UK, European, Indian, Chinese etc politics do have their differences, human beings are common to them all, so there is also a great deal of commonality across the nations, since politics could be described as essentially the art of government at all its different levels.

  • James Corbett on the Trump-Biden Conundrum

    2021-02-26

    James Corbett of the Corbett Report delivers a very well-constructed review of the Trump presidency and how it fits within the American (global?) "democratic" system.

    What was the point of Trump? Was he the man to fix the system and "drain the swamp", or was he the necessary distraction that enabled those behind the scenes to take the world into the next phase of their plan for our dystopian future?

    James brings a welcome forensic analysis of past pronouncements and events that gives real pause for thought, building a convincing case that Trump was not the man that many hoped (and prayed) he would be:

  • Armed Forces Reform

    2021-02-25

    Now that the UK has "left the EU" our defence policy is as opaque as ever, and our defence budget will no doubt now be more stretched than ever given the predations of government policy in response to Covid.

    So whither now our armed forces, and in particular, the army?

    Adrian Hill writing for Briefings for Britain outlines some draft proposals for maintaining our fighting capability whilst significantly reducing manpower costs but maintaining numbers - a fine trick if it could be pulled off!

    He sensibly contrasts the UK approach with the techniques adopted by other countries, and concludes that we have much to learn if only we had the will to do so.

  • From House of Chaos to House of Complacency

    2021-02-24

    During Mrs May's tenure, the House of Commons became the house of chaos as opposing factions seemingly bent every rule in the book and every  convention in Parliament in a futile bid to overturn the verdict of the People without taking the blame for so doing. The squabbling and scheming reached epic levels and the cartoonists (to misapply a quote from Harold Macmillan) had "never had it so good".

    Contrast that with the current state of play where Boris and Matt get by without bothering to present their diktats in the House, Her Majesty's loyal opposition is so loyal that it only ever argues for the restrictions to be tighter, and with very few honourable exceptions no serious attempt is made to do anything other than tow the party line and support the government.

  • Escape from C***d Castle?

    2021-02-24

    I'm becoming ever more reluctant to post on the Covid topic since there is little new to say; however, this article in the Mail Online in response to Johnson's "road map" is topical pertinent and (mostly) well-founded. In the end though the only thing you really need to know is this quote:

    "The more SAGE gets wrong, the more Mr Johnson clings to its view of the pandemic"

    The author however continues the dishonourable MSM tradition of assuming that only a vaccine can provide any immunity - in point of fact the disease has been with us for so long now that herd immunity may be the decisive factor - indeed the rapidly evaporating case numbers could be evidence for this, although predictably enough nobody seems to want to mention this possibility.

    Professor Saad may not be a familiar name but Peter Whittle has done us all a service by featuring him on "So What You're Saying Is...".

    As an evolutionary psychologist he doesn't fall neatly into any of our normal categories, and as an academic one wonders, given his forthright views, how he has managed to survive without being cancelled, but he does share an interesting explanation of his longevity, an explanation which perhaps more of us need to emulate.

    Oh, and he's very entertaining with it :)

  • Dr. Montagnier Shines a Light on COVID-19 and The Future of Medicine

    2021-02-23

    The medico-political Covid situation is confusing on multiple levels which will clearly not be resolved any time soon, but just when you thought that there can't possibly be any more new hypotheses to discuss, along comes Matt Ehret with another.

    It is widely accepted that electromagnetic radiation can be damaging to our health. X-rays, gamma rays, nuclear radiation, ultra-violet sunshine are all acknowledged to be damaging, whilst sunlight (excluding damaging UV) is known to be beneficial both physically (allowing the body to generate vitamin D) and mentally (cheering us all up :) .

    Infra-red can be damaging if it causes us to heat up too much.

    All other radiation is thought to be harmless . . .   except where it isn't, such a microwave radiation which causes us to heat up and is used for that purpose in microwave ovens (and for communications purposes in WiFi at low levels thought to be safe by regulators but disputed by campaigners).

    The US Supreme Court yesterday dismissed cases that it had previously declined to expedite, concerning challenges to the validity of the contentious presidential election processes followed by the various swing states.

  • Ben Habib Launches Lawfare over the NI Protocol

    Ben Habib explains what he is up to - he is taking Boris to task for the Northern Ireland protocol that is currently dividing the Union.

    Today we are writing to the Prime Minister. This government is driving a coach & horses through the Act of Union. We have no option but to take legal action

    Whilst it's good to see initiatives like this that take the preservation of the Union very seriously, surely the point is that Parliament should be taking the lead here?

    The very fact that politicians are now resorting to legal action speaks volumes about the fiction that Parliament is composed of those who represent the views of the people.

  • Bitcoin - Trick or Treat?

    2021-02-22

    Bitcoin recently appreciated significantly when Elon Musk bought a vast tranche.

    Since then it's seemingly done nothing but go up in value. So what to do - is it about to collapse or will it go on up for ever and make its owners extravagantly wealthy?

    I have read many articles on crypto but I have not invested any actual money as yet. Should I now break the conservative habit and buy in?

    Catherine Austin Fitts gives us a wholly different take on what is going on here, and I suspect that her analysis will come as something of a surprise to many.

    She succeeds in relating the financial elements to  our real-life needs and experience, as well as to the global political and financial situation - she paints a very complete picture.
