This is not to decry the work of people who try to change things nor to poo poo their work. A lot of good can come from charitable works. I am talking here specifically about the hypocrites like William Hague and Gordon Brown who attach themselves like blood sucking leeches to campaigns and undermine them or for whom their support is hypocrisy defined.  Continue reading »

A few weeks ago some Ukrainians may have been shot by their own security establishment and apparently according to the US/UK this was wrong. It was wrong in Syria and Libya. As we know you are only legally allowed to execute people in other countries without due process who are no threat to your country to keep your poll ratings up and pretend to an ill informed domestic populace you are doing something about a war and threat you largely invented, see Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan et al.

Well the US and UK would like to announce that it’s OK to kill your own populace if you are funded by Western Interests see Ukraine.

Hundreds of Nigerian school girls have been kidnapped by vile Islamic whatevers ITN and Channel 4 News call them but known as Boko Haram. It is horrible this male cult of bullshit referred to as  fundamentalist Islam and anyone watching would be horrified at attempts to not educate women – except for extreme religious people of course (see some purportedly Christian US States trying to nationalise women’s bodies). Yet what did ITN or Channel 4 not mention?

That we in the West support Boko Haram who are funded by our ally Saudi Arabia. The same as the al Queada rebels in Syria we support them too. We don’t support them in Afghanistan directly of course as then we’d be killing our own soldiers but the Saudis do and we support them and sell them weapons. So we oppose Jihadists in Somalia, Afghanistan and Pakistan and don’t like them in Nigeria but are quite happy to supply their backers with arms. Which means we really are happy to play both ends and wonder why people hate us?

The West’s support for Saudi makes no sense of course but it’s not a conspiracy it’s just a lot of people with a vested interest looking after their own patch. It’s conformist leaders who get info solely from briefings from media and lobbyists, who in turn are briefed by vested interests and unofficial spokespeople in a circular debate between so called intelligence and so called security services, Mainstream Media and Govt.

This troika is on display if people choose to look because the last one with the last Labour Govt broke down – oik like working classers Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson who aspired to be something are to be knocked down of course no one who counts is. The people who excused/supported/benefited from their excess sit in sinecures, some like David ‘Torture’ Miliband even hope to come back. Just as William Hague will likely retire to a humanitarian post having supported Saudi jihadis and opposed them without having the smarts to see the contradiction – a man who can sit in a cabinet that allows/supports the abuse of women at Yarls Wood and can then ponce about in photo shoots with Jolie campaigning against rape in war!

Does it make the likes of Hague or Miliband or Obama evil? Or does it just show how vacuous and credulous they are? A conspiracy? It’s not a conspiracy it’s far too simplistic and there is no veneer on it. Being able to conspire is not something you can accuse anyone I mention above of doing.

UKIP may be beneath the surface a load of Climate Change denying twats but they will continue to sound more relevant to people who might openly decry them because they do not have baggage. Their policies may be at odds with science and sense but they are still more logical than a series of half understood dictated maxims that the other 3 Neo-Liberal US owned parties spout.

Farage and co do not have to pick up NATO’s line on Ukraine. Indeed Hague sounded like a moron as he said Russia was destabilising East Ukraine after the Americans alone had spent $2 Bn destabilising the whole of it, by their own admission never mind what freshly printed they actually spent – Ron Paul claims $5 Bn. Never mind what our soiled booth dwellers at GCHQ got up to. Farage will be able to question the share of aid we give a country who will not be able to pay its fuel bills this winter and will not have them written off. Farage will be able to question why the next Ukrainian President approved by the West is worth Bns. Farage will be able to laud it over them when pogroms start etc

UKIP also is not stuck talking gobbledygook economics handed down by morons at Bilderberg and Davos. Economics that makes no sense plied 3rd hand by Balls and Osborne whatever its originations – Cable knows it makes no sense but is muted in criticising it.

I come not to praise UKIP but merely to suggest their burial will be hard for the main parties if they continue with such a poorly dictated script.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Albert Einstein

John Kerry is apparently intelligent. He is very rich. Yet he stands there and makes moral judgement from the country who introduced me to the concepts of Waterboarding, Drone Striking, Extra Ordinary Rendition, Napalm, Agent Orange and Double Taps. He represents a President who personally asked Yemen to retain in jail the journalist who had shown him up as the man who murdered 35 women and children.

Quite where Hague and Kerry get their moral authority from is beyond me. Hague’s crimes are more of the facilitating type but in many ways that is worse.

So far Iraq and Libya are broken ex countries the US and UK created earlier. Do we really expect to do any good in Syria? Hell we don’t even know who the good guys are there.

Sadly a lot of us do what might be considered trolling. Most of us do it with brothers and sisters or friends or just some shop assistant or barman telling us you’re barred. A lot more people are tripping the line on insanity than we credit. There is a lot of pent up frustration and self loathing out there and it comes out as trolling. Of course some psychos do it for amusement. Some may even be nefarious. Almost all are harmless beyond the words they used and best blocked and ignored. Continue reading »

Morsi and Erdogan probably would argue they had a democratic mandate.

Justin Webb argued that the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) upholding the Constitution over Bill Clinton’s Defence of Marriage Act (DOMA) was undemocratic. I had made the point that as things stand the UK is as good (or bad) as the US with or without a constitution and rights. Am I now defending that constitution over not having one? Continue reading »

The NSA White House says 50 and more plots have been foiled specifically by their snooping programs that cost Billions. They can’t point to one conviction as a result of this. Not one.

Nor can William Hague and all those former Home Secretaries in the UK.  It is amazingly expensive and cannot produce one piece of evidence in its own defense. Having spent all this money of course the leaders will not claim its unnecessary*. The point being buffing up conventional intelligence and not relying on machines will be a better bang for the buck. At present cost per terrorist is likely infinite.

This is ‘clearly’ not about terrorism. As today in the UK we found out Special Branch moved from Trade Unions to the anti Racist and Climate Change movement. That’s produced no positive results either.

I am sure good people have stopped attacks like the New York subway attack through good intelligence. I am sure some people do valuable work. I am not damning Intelligence per se just having my own insulted.

You have nothing to fear if you’ve nothing to hide
Joseph Goebbels

Goebbels commitment to the philosophy of free states has been paraded directly by William Hague and the Obama Administration. Sadly because of the servility of the UK populace and media not a lot is said here bar Glenn Greenwald pieces in the Guardian. Hence the concentration on the continuing lies and downright ridiculous parallel universe comments of spokesmen for the Obama Regime. The latest laugh a minute was from regime spokesman Obama himself. Apparently ordinary people have nothing to fear from this million strong army of contractors and spooks having access to their details. After all no one flakey as they paint this Snowden guy would ever get hold of it.

Obama’s ordinary people one can say for certain does not include defense lawyers in cases against the Govt or defending O’s torture victims in Gitmo. It does not include probably all Muslims who communicate to the middle east or is that all Muslims? It does not include anyone who sends encrypted emails (like I do from work!). It does not include people who object to the stealing of our savings, jobs and lives of our children by The City/Wall Street and join the Occupy movement. It does not include people who want to fight not to be poisoned and impoverished by the environment. It probably does not include anyone who stands for election above State Senator. It certainly would not include those nasty people who use open source software without back doors for the intelligence services to exploit. It does not include the other 6.7 Bn people on the planet.

Obama’s ordinary people really are ordinary I guess, boring conformist mother fuckers even. Ironically he’d not be included. He was eavesdropped on when he purported dangerous reactionary and clearly stupid ideas like not going to war for no reason.

The Hague doctrine is you have your freedom as long as you don’t use it for something I [Hague] would not agree with.

Does anyone believe including the spokesmen for the British Govt that this mass surveillance is for any purpose to do with Terrorism or even crime. That this vast expenditure which would rapidly be rendered impotent if used for those tasks is of any value? That two nut cases hacking a head off entails an internet clamp down and seemingly point less deportation?

The clear targets are movements like Occupy which because they are democratic and a function of free speech will use personal phones and unencrypted emails. The UK police spends massive amounts of time, money and undercover officers penetrating, literally, the Green and anti Capitalist movements for seeming no benefit but considerable cost in law suits and ridiculous prosecutions unless those people are right and their words need burying! You have the right to protest providing you don’t use it is the message from the Western leaders of all Salt brands – red, blue & orange in the UK.

Legally & to avoid torture it is better to be a US contractor or UK soldier who killed someone unnecessarily or a uniformed or sub contractor rapist or a drone operator who kills for kicks than the person who exposes that.

Question to Oxbridge/Ivy League pin cushions & all the journalists & clowns justifying this why would you support such authoritarianism? Occam’s razor suggests these feckless fools believe a word they say. The psycho can decide to fit in. The deluded clown can only carry on being so.

Better malicious nuts than weak fools?
