“Useful Idiots”, ‘White Privilege’, & Silicon Valley’s “Ministry Of Truth”

When Gil Scott-Heron released the iconic song it was a cry for racial justice. But it was far deeper than that. Because Scott-Heron spoke the truth that media was subordinate to power.

That’s why he knew the revolution he spoke of would never be on television, the most powerful form of media in the world at the time. Controlled by very few because technology had not transformed communication, corporate media crafted whatever narratives it and those it was subordinate to wanted.

And those narratives are always sick, divisive and foremost fake.

Today social media companies are supposed to act as democratized distribution platforms for images, thoughts, and information from one end of the world to the other. And those in power now realize just how hard it is to maintain narratives in a world where they can be debunked in real time by millions of people.

They lost major battles like Brexit, the 2016 U.S. Presidential election and others and have retrenched in the most predictable way all tyrants do, they censor, stop, remove, and bury anything that challenges what they want you to know.

But they’ve gone much farther than that. And after decades of honing narratives about uprisings against foreign leaders whose main crime was to defy the U.S. and/or European halls of power centered around fake money, fake wealth and, most importantly, fake news, they’ve turned that expertise on us in ways that are truly terrifying.

We live in a world today so suffused with fake news, misinformation, disinformation and purposeful confusion it’s worse than being in The Matrix … Continue reading >>>

Loser to Winner – The Amazing Journey Of Candidate Biden

The item below the picture was posted on FACEBOOK by our Texan friend Vic Damico and will be included in our Death of Democracy omnibus page. The elevation of Joe Biden, a man with a long and undistinguished political career already behind him and who at 77 years of age is showing painfully obvious early signs of dementia, from potential three time loser to the te the Democrats hope will beat Trump, and the subsequent withdrawal of candiacies by people far better equipped to challemge The Donald tells us all we need to know about the state of democracy in the USA.
Biden of course is the Democrats most consistent war hawk and has never opposed any proposed U.S. military intervention.


Joe Biden – his transformation from a shambling, semi – demented wreck three short weeks ago leads us to ask what is he on and can we have some please

JOE BIDEN WAS SELECTED BY THE ESTABLISHMENT:

I just read the following statement in an article in my Yahoo feed.

“Biden appears poised to complete one of the most striking turnarounds in recent campaign memory, finding himself in a dominant position only 10 days after the first state victory of his three presidential runs.”

*****A COMPLETE FALSEHOOD*****

Biden did nothing to cause a turnaround, as it relates to gaining support from the Democrat Party. The mainstream media created this turnaround by flooding the news networks and every corner of the Internet with the illusion that everything was shifting in Biden’s favor. Nothing actually transpired that would multiply Biden’s support; in fact, with his many slip-ups and confused daily existence, the Democrat Party should have dismissed Biden as completely mentally unfit to serve in the White House. Joe Biden’s victory was a fabrication by the mainstream media.

The mainstream media can take a nobody (a good example is Greta Thunberg) and make him/her an overnight sensation, so obviously, they have no problem in taking a man who has been in public office for decades and putting him in the right spotlight. Joe Biden did not surge in the polls, nor did he gain ground based upon his own merit. Joe Biden was chosen by “the establishment” to fill the role of running against President Donald Trump, and the mainstream media used their usual deceptive methods to put him in that role.

What we are witnessing is a last ditch effort for the establishment to uproot President Trump, but sadly, their best chance to do so is by promoting the least qualified Democrat candidate. Joe Biden has been positioned to face Donald Trump by the establishment, not the Democrat Party. Joe Biden bolted to the top, and it had absolutely nothing to do with the counting of votes. Half of the nation were just deceived into believing that they have actually made a choice, when in reality, a choice was made for them by the establishment….Vic Damico

Why Is The Scandal Of The Awan Brothers Being Ignored?
You have probably never heard of the Awan brothers, a couple of dodgy foreigners with very strong links to the US Democrat National Committee. Given the noise the Democrats have been making about collaboration with non Americans during the 2016 campaign, it is surprising that neither Trump nor any of his supporters have responded to the fact that they have been handed a baseball bat with nails through the end, with which to beat his leading detractors.

Biden the Democrats least hopeless hopeful? Or is he?

A senior U.S. Republican reportedly said recently that the most difficult ticket Donald Trump could face in the next election would be Joe Biden partnered by Elizabeth Warren. This was not, needless to say, because Biden was a brilliant debater or a lethal political adversary. “If he was any stupider, my you’d have to water him”, the anonymous Republican quipped.

He went on to explain that Biden’s most deadly weapon against Trump is that he (Biden,) is  visibly a genuinely nice man. A man of such undeniable warmth and decency,* whose life had been devastated twice by separate family tragedies, would be an extremely difficult target for a president who had got where he is by playing a belligerent bully.

*That would be why American’s call him Groper Joe then

Now the question American voters must ask themselves in November, assuming Biden is nominated the Democratic Party candidate is do they want to be governed by a belligerent bully or by President Al Zheimer. Yes 78 year old Groper Joe is showing signs of incipient dementia.

Beyond that, a conspiracy theory I swear I had nothing to do with starting suggests the Democrasts plan is to nominate Al, I mean Joe, and then have him stand down on health grounds before campaigning proper for the Presidenyoial Election begins, making way for Hillary Clinton step up as emergency candidate.

All in all, whatever the final outcome of the U.S. election process, it looks a safe bet that chaos will ensue.

Hundreds attend protest against Fianna Fail/Fine Gael coalition in Dublin

A few weeks ago the Irish General Election returned an inconclusive result as many voters rejected the traditional power duopoly of Finaana Fail and Fine Gael, both pro – EU, globalist parties, in favour of anti EU, nationalist parties with Sinn Fein (the political wing of the IRA being the main beneficiary. We predicted then that a bid by Europhile Prime Minister Leo Varadkar to hold on to power by taking his Fine Gael party into coalitioon with their traditional rivals Finanna Fail was doomed and would finish Varadkar, a Brussels puppet, and possibly lead to Ireland following the UK out of the European Union.

It looks as if the first part of our prediction is about to be realised already.

from The Irish Daily Mirror

Hundreds attend protest against Fianna Fail/Fine Gael coalition in Dublin city centre

“We’re here to show that we don’t want a Fianna Fail/Fine Gael government’
Hundreds of people came out to call for real change and protest at the possibility of a Fianna Fail and Fine Gael coalition on Saturday. People Before Profit’s Brid Smith TD, Homeless Action Ireland and Extinction Rebellion were among the groups that gathered at the Garden of Remembrance in Dublin. Protesters, holding the banner “Stop the Fianna Fail-Fine Gael Stitch Up – March for Real Change” walked from Parnell Square to O’Connell Street.

Ms Smith said voters called for change in the recent General Election – not another Government led by Leo Varadkar’s Fine Gael or Micheal Martin’s Fianna Fail. Ahead of the demonstration, she added: “We’re calling it a stitch-up between Fianna Fail and Fine Gael and the reason we’re using that term is because the very clear sentiment of the recent election was not Fianna Fail or Fine Gael.

“They got roughly around 43% of the vote, which together is significant, but it doesn’t give them majority rights. “But the sentiment of the election is that we need real change – on housing, on health, on the cost of living, on reversing the pension age.”

Meanwhile, spokeswoman for Homeless Action Ireland Leah Daly said the wishes of half a million voters are being ignored. She was previously homeless with two of her children for two years, and forced to live in emergency shelter even though she was working for a private senior care company. Ms Daly added: “We’re here to show that we don’t want a Fianna Fail/Fine Gael government.  READ FULL ARTICLE >>>

Clinton Kill List To Determine Who Will Be US 2020 Presidential Candidate?

There is little doubt now that the Democratic Party in the USA is in an even bigger mess than the UK Labour Party. With none of the remaining contenders aged under 70 and all of them tainted by eith scandal or flirtations with far left socialism, prospects at the beginning of this week looked grim for the Dems. And then, in accordance with Murphy’s law, which states just when you think things can’t get any worse, they do, Hillary Clinton has emerged, having found what she obviously thinks is a sure – fire route to the presidency, to offer her services as vice presidential candidate to whoever wins the nomination.

And just to show how far The Democrats are removed from reality, instead of recoiling in horror as they remember the trouncing Trump gave Hillary in 2016, many leading figures in the party and the left leaning media think it’s a good idea. One opinion column contributor to political magazine The Hill even went as far as to say the adoption of Hillary Clinton as Vice President would send chills down Donald Trump’s spine.

The Hill‘s Douglas MacKinnon writes:, Clinton may be in negotiations with former Vice President (and current frontrunner) Joe Biden, former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, or she may try to team up with whoever gets the Democratic nomination.

MacKinnon writing in a Saturday Op-Ed speculates Clinton “would add the gravitas, delegates and, eventually, millions of votes needed to get them over the finish line on Nov. 5. I am assured that Clinton is on every shortlist for that position,” adding “If I were in Trump’s world, this scenario would send chills down my spine.

We don’t think Trump will be perturbed by the news, if fact he is probably overjoyed. The people who should be scared, given the length of the so called Clinton Kill List, a catalogue of people who, having got in the way of Hillary’s ambitions or threatened to dish the dirt of the shady dealings of DC’s dodgiest couple, have died in mysterious circumstances. One shot himself in the head – TWICE, another stabbed himself in the back and a third died in a bizarre gardening accident oh sorry, that was a spinal tap drummer, the Clinton associate I’m thinking of died in a bizarre home gym accident

Call me a conspiracy theorist if you like, my dears, but just think for a moment: even someone as arrogant and lacking self awareness as Hillary Clinton must have understood by now that given her unpopularity with voters and her preceived complete lack of trustworthiness, she is never going to become US President by getting elected. So as the US Constitution decrees that if a president dies in office the vice president automatically takes over, there’s an obvious opportunity for somebody with Hillary’s track record for eliminating obstacles to achieving her ambitions. If I was Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Mike Bloomberg or even one of the also rans, I’d be shitting myself at the though of how little time I might live after being sworn on as president.

Election UK: So did ‘idiot voters’ get it wrong?

by Tom Chivers for Unherd

In the postmortem examination of Labour’s electoral disaster, the notion of “false consciousness” has been bandied around quite a lot. The accusation is that Labour, blaming the media and the Tories (and sometimes the voters themselves) for deceiving the population into voting against its own interests, is invoking the idea to explain why the workers and lower middle class — whom they think of as their base — didn’t vote for them. “Am I out of touch? No, it’s the voters who are wrong.”

“False consciousness” gets a lot of bad press these days, and you can see why: it’s a foundational concept of Marxist-Leninist communism, originally formulated by Friedrich Engels, and it can easily be seen as a way of blaming the idiot proles for not knowing what’s best for them and voting for the wrong lot. There is something a bit grim about telling working-class people — or black people, or gay people, or women, et cetera — that the only reason they voted the way they did is because they are idiots who got duped.

Gobsmacking Stupidity Of The Left

It’s amazing, and highly amusing tolisten to Labour leaders Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell trying to wriggle out of admitting that their party lost the election because they have completely forsaken their working class roots. Bizarrely their supporters are equally deluded, looking around the online comment threads I see many people claiming the Conservatives won because Labour’s manifesto was not left wing enough.

Can’t anyone in that crazy party understand the working class are not left wing, they don’t want globalism and multiculturalism, they don’t want state control of everything and they certainly don’t want Oxbridge educated human rights lawyers who once read a book about working class people representing their interests in government.

For me the reason Labour lost is best summed up in a one liner delivered by a Brummie voter who described Jeremy Corbyn thus:

“a snotty Islington weirdo who hates Britain like the vegans hate Sunday roasts”.

Shy Tories

by Ian

Once a nerd always a nerd, it is said and while I strenuously deny any similarity with Bill Gates, those weirdos who founded Google and Prof. Brian Cox, I did work in Information Technology for many years and sometimes I like to do a bit of programming for fun. On thing that always amuses me is recrunching the numbers from political polling to try and get a picture of what’s really going on.

And I can tell you the big factor in the outcome of this week’s UK general election is not Brexit, poverty, immigration or tax dodging billionaires. It is shy Tories.

Now OK I know you all think Tories are arrogant, braying posh boys with plangent voices, but polls show most Tory voters do not like to talk about their procilivities. It’s sad really that people feel ashamed of their choices, after all we live in a democracy and you should be able to support who you like without fear or shame.

But the situation is not as bad as in the USA where the most important demographic in the 2020 election will be the shy trumpers, people who are ashamed to admit they are trumpers. It was these people who swung the 2016 election against Hillary Clinton and who will decide the 2020 election.

When you think about this, it’s no wonder so many Americans look like hot air balloons if they’ve been holding in all that flatus since 2016

Trump Takes On Fake News

Election Latest: Nobody Knows What’s Going On.

We are all suffering from news fatigue in the alternative news and blogging community, this dull, personality deficient, anodyne election campaign, with the liveliest and most interesting candidates kept under wraps by party managers lest they say or do something that might trigger snowflakes or in some way show they are human beings.

In Europe the mainstream media continue to play down the farmers protests in France, Germany and Netherlands and the political dysfunction in Italy, Spain and Belguim and pretend everything is hunky dory in Brussels and federalisaion i=of Europe is charging ahead. And across the pond of course we have the impeachment hearings as The Democrats once again try to remove Trump from office and once again completely fail to produce any evidence of “high crimes and misdemeanours.”

But what of the UK, how is our election going and who is winning. The Conservatives have lost momentum because they were afraid to let Boris be Boris, Labour;s political vehicle, a shiny red Ferarri under Tony Blair, and a clapped out Volkswagen Beetle under Ed Milliband, have been turned into a rusty old bike by Jeremy Corbyn, whose back-to-the-1930 policies have been about as popular as a dose of clap in a brothel. than that its has been boring. Deadly dull and uninspiring, in fact the most interesting thing is the way Lib Dem leaders Jo Swinson’s head seems to get larger with every TV appearance. But other Al least there will be a bit of excitement if Ms Swinson’s head explodes before election day. The question is will ballot paper splattered with Swinson brain tissue count as Liberal Deomcrat votes or spoiled ballot papers.

The Daily Telegraph gleefully reported today, “New poll shows Conservative lead down to eight points.” Some readers might find this surprising as the Telegraph is n=know for being a conservative – supporting newspaper. But the headline was not the only surprising thing about the story, and perhaps the most surprising things of all were what the report did not mention; that the same polling organisation, Savanta – ComRes published three polls last week, showing respectively eight point, sx point and ten point leads for the conservatives; and that also published to day in The Observer Sunday newspaper, sister publication of the heavily left wing The Guardian, which carries the story on their website, a poll carried out by Opinium gives the Conservatives a fifteen point lead.

So it looks as if we may be heading for a big Conservative majority, or a small conservative majority, or a hung parliament or a Labour / SNP coalition. T.he Boggart Blog bookie’s advice? Don’t bet on anything

German Region Thuringia Election Result Heralds The Collapse Of Germany

We have reported the growing likelyhood of an economic and social collapse in Germany both here and in our Daily Stirrer pages, but nothing has pointed towards that inevitable conclusion to Merkel’s mess and the accompanying disintegration of the European Union more strongly than the results of last weekends regional electioons for the state government of  Thuringia, a province in the north east of the country.

The near collapse of the two centrist parties, Angela Merkel’s CDU and the Social Democrats (SPD), which for decades dominated German politics, looks like a omen of what lies ahead in German politics and EU politics.

#

A majority in Thuringia, ruled by the CDU since the early 1990’s until 2014 when Die Linke took over with the Social Democrats and the Greens, just voted against the centrist, Merkelist, grand coalition of standing for nothing but globalism and tighter EU integration.

Die Linke (a coalition of hard left Marxists and other left of centre extremists,) and Alternative for Germany (AfD) secured more than 54% of the total vote. Die Linke, the remnant of the East German Communist Party, and AfD, the new face of Eurosceptic nationalism, anti-immigration and fiscally responsible Germans, took first and second place ahead of Merkel’s CDU.

(source Wikipedia via  Thüringer Landesamt für Statistik – Thuringer statistics office)

Whereas in 2014, Die Linke formed a government with the SPD and the Greens, today they cannot, the grouping falls 4 seats short of a majority, and the Greens barely beat the 5% threshold for representation.  Had they not the coalition calculus would be unsolvable.

Merkel and the CDU, though they beat old rivals the SDP by a big margin will exclude themselves from the state government as the Europhile leadership categorically refuse to make a deal with AfD in any capacity, the sticking point being Merkel’s blinkered committent to her open doors immigration policy which has been the cause of so many of the country’;s social and economic problems.  It looks as if Turingia will be without an effective government for some time. The situation is just as bad in Brandenburg which voted in September and where the establishment has effectively blocked a coalition that contains the anti – EU Alternatif fur Deutschland.

This is becoming a trend in the EU where Spain, Belgium, Portugal and Italy are without effective governments because of undemocratic meddling in election results by Brussels.

In both German states, complex coalitions of incompatible parties will be needed the formation of any government and with at least four parties involved, to cobble together a majority on any controversial issue will be almost impossible because the only thing they agree on  is their refusal to collaborate with with AfD.  Lower Saxony will likely retain its current coalition between Merkel’s CDU, the SPD and the Greens after their election last month, although the demands of the Greens as their price for joining such a coalition, environmentalist reforms that will be ruinous for the local economy, are likely to be unacceptable to CDU and SDP representatives. .

These, and other recent regional election results in Germany all highlight the direction the country’s voters are moving, away from Brussels and Euro – Federalism and towards nationalism and a reclamation of national sovereignty. Voters are also repulsed by the mainstream party’s making impossible promises to everyone and reneging on them in order to advance “the European project,” by transforming the 27 member states into a federal republic, and against the Islamification of German society which is Merkel’s legacy.  As Alexander Mercouris of The Duran pointed out the other day, Merkel’s modus operandi is to hold the line on the status quo regardless of the social mayhem her policies are creating around her.

That has created a a situation where an illusion of stability and control is projected on the surface on the surface while is teetering on collapse with every new social development or item of economic news.

For years now, since the immigration crisis broke, the Hausfrau Volksfuhrer has been trying to keep the European project moving towards “ever closer integration” while ignoring domestic problems or pretending all bad news is just a “far right conspiracy theory.”  But in trying to keep things as they are in the world outside Germany, she’s let allowed Germany’s internal problems to run out of control.

Germany’s state elections this autumn in Germany have been not only been a a disaster for Merkel, they have also encouraged an upsurge in opposition to the EU central bureaucracy throughout Europe. Member states know that without German money propping up the EU, the organisation cannot survive. And with the UK, the second largest net contributor to EU funds after Germany about to leave, the burden has become unsupportable for the faltering German economy. And that is making thevpolitical situation even more unstable.

Look back to the aftermath of the 2017 national election and how hard it was for Merkel to put a ruling coalition together, leaving the EU’s most economically powerful member state without an effective government for over six months.  Some commentators predicted the end of Merkelism but somehow Merkel survived at the head of a fragile and unconvincing coalition The problems she’s facing now were just as acute then. but she chose to paper them over with yet another disastrous coalition with the Social Democrats and CSU.

What’s clear is that political opinions about the future of Germany are hardening away from the consensus politics Merkel’s Party and the SDP have been selling in fact the collapse of the SDP, once the default party of government is even more astounding than the decline of Merkel’s CDU.

The event most likely to trigger the collapse and fragmentation of Germany will be the failure of Deutschebank, the financial giant that, saddled with mountains of debt run up by the EU’s basket case economies, has been effectively insolvent for some time. There’s nothing quite as potent in destroying confidence than the failure of a major financial institutions, and in this case, when (not if,) the bank fails, the figer of blame will be pointed at the globalist government in Berlin.
