Given the hysterical eagerness of mainstream media to promote a vaccine as the only way to stop the pandemic I’m not surprised to read today that Big Pharma and the fear and panic merchants of the scientific community are still pushing a vaccine that only yesterday was reported to have failed at the very first stage of trials by spectacularly not preventing vaccinated Rhesus monkeys from developing symptoms.
But then those of us with suspicious minds have speculated all along that the PANdemIC is not driven by a virus but by a political agenda.

The same was true of the 2009 Swine flupandemic,  another non – event that would not have attracted a single column millimter of news coverage had the crook and liar Prof. Neil Ferguson predicted, on the strength or output from his flawed and easily riggable mathematical models rather than empirical evidence that thousands would die in a global pandemic resulting from a Coronavirus strain jumping the species barrier from pigs. This was Ferguson’s prediction of how the Swine Flu pandemic would play out: Guy has a lot to answer for

“In 2009, Ferguson and his Imperial team predicted that swine flu had a case fatality rate 0.3 per cent to 1.5 per cent. His most likely estimate was that the mortality rate was 0.4 per cent. A government estimate, based on Ferguson’s advice, said a ‘reasonable worst-case scenario’ was that the disease would lead to 65,000 UK deaths.

In the end swine flu killed 457 people in the UK and had a death rate of just 0.026 per cent in those infected. Ferguson’s prediction of 500,000 deaths from COVID – 19 if the economy was not shut down has about the same relationship with reality even  after figures for “COVID related deaths” have been ramped up by including as a “COVID related death” people who died of heart failure after a decades long history of cardio – vascular problems, but who, while in hospital, happened to have stood near a person who later tested positive for the disease. Oh yes, such tenuous links to COVID have been used to inflate figures in support of the fear and panic campaign.

Government and media  throughout the liberal democracies has left many people in a state of abject fear. They dwell on death. They religously count the number of people who have Covid-19 infections. They say nothing of the vast army of people who have had it but are now perfectly fit. They say nothing of the vast army of people who have had no or mild symptoms.

The people behind this campaign have no time for Common Sense.

Where I live in rural Lancashire, UK I would have to meet 2000 over people before the balance of probabilities would indicate I had met ONE with Covid-19. Yet local news reported from a supermarket and singled out a man standing by himself some distance from the entrance. The reporter politely asked him whether this was the start of a queue. With wild angry eyes and spittle flying he demanded that the unfortunate news hound maintain a social distance (As the reporter had a mic attached to a selfie stick she must have been well over six fet away).

At the tills a grim-faced lady would not move along a snake-like queue because the distance laterally was not 2 metres.

Both creatures had, in my view, been damaged by the relentless propaganda designed to maintain control by fear.

I have encountered many examples of similar fear online, notably at U.S. platform Medium.com where both content and comment threads are dominated by the more illogical extremes of liberal and progressive movements.  One person who replied to a comment I posted a few weeks ago accused me of “volunteering for death” if I did not isolate myself until vaccinated. The fact that there is not, and may never be an effective vaccine escaped him completely.

Another told me, when I commented about the low kill rate of COVID – 19, that only right wing Republicans tried to play down the threat of COVID – 19 but people who followed REAL news sites knew that ten per cent of Americans had already died of COVID – 19. There are so many indications of congenital idiocy in that statement I didn’t even bother trying to elighten her.

But the prize for compete and nutter fear induced insanity goes to the gentleman who tried to twist everything I said, first claiming that instead of my perfectly reasonable repetition of the well known fact that COVID – 19 has predominantly affected people of above retirement age with known health problems, or younger people with serious health problems. He first insisted I had said COVID – 19 only affects retireees and therefore believed only the young deserve care, and when I questioned his motivations or the quality of his literacy skills he was outraged that I should suggest he was stupid and that only far right extremists believed Trump’s lie that COVID – 19 only affects old people. His comment continued at length about how I was angry and hurt at his “correcting the misinformation” in my comment and was lashing out because he had humiliated me.
Angry? Well I was slightly miffed that he had missed my humourous references to COVID – 19 having only a slightly higher fatality rate in the young and healthy than spontaneous combustion or bizarre gardening accidents (a reference to the spoof rockumentary Spinal Tap, or a rather more obscure reference to Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

In my response I have him links to three UK and European left wing sources that backed up everything I wrote.  I haven’t heard from him since – pity really, I’d intended to let him in on the secret that British Republicans tend to be fringe left wing  activists rather than Donald Trump fans.

When we reflect on the bovine stupidity of those who unquestioningly swallow the entire fear and panic narrative, it’s no wonder the global elites found it so easy to seize our liberty and right to exercise free will. Whether they can hold their gains is up to us.

Don’t Let The MSM & Government Fearmongers Drive You Nuts

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

Ginning up fear and terror was the key to getting hold of the country, tossing millions of Americans out of work, and setting fire to the Constitution. A nation ruled by fear is a nation that falls into tyranny, said Dr. Ron Paul in his latest Liberty Report.

We know the elitists have been using the mainstream media to instill fear into the public.  Fearful people are easy to control and more likely to obey the commands of tyrants.  Most people operate only to obey others and don’t take the time to think critically about the information or in this case, the disinformation presented.

Dr. Paul and Daniel McAdams begin the Liberty Report discussing the problems with government regulations, and how they have led to many more deaths than would have happened had the government done nothing.

Dr. Paul then discusses how the media is complicit in scaring the public so politicians can expand their violent rule and domination of other human begins.

“There’s an element of fear, scare the people into it! But that might be the way all incremental socialism and fascism works.”

The biggest thing people need to realize is that the “role of government isn’t to make us safe and secure.” And the more people give up rights to be safe and secure, the more enslaved they become. We have a nation full of people who literally think like slaves and not like the free human beings they were born as.  

“Hopefully, this will wake people up!

McAdams added that this fear-mongering by government and the mainstream media is a “form of terrorism.” When you look at the definition of the word terrorism, it’s to “terrorize people for a political goal.”  In this case, the goal in tyrannical takeover and enslavement of every human being on this planet … Continue reading >>>

Total Surveillance: Contact-tracing app will be ‘key part’ of UK government’s Covid-19 ‘surveillance programme’

Contact-tracing app will be ‘key part’ of UK government’s Covid-19 ‘surveillance programme’ – Johnson spokesman
Picture (c) Olivier Douliery, AFP
The hugely unpopular NHS contact-tracing app proposal, which as libertarians point out will giver the government the power to track all our movements, will be a “key part” of the U.K. government’s Covid-19 containment policy for the foreseeable future, a spokesman for the Prime Minister’s office has confirmed.

The app, designed ostensibly to notify smartphone users if they came into close contact with someone who had tested positive for the coronavirus, could be available within a few weeks,  but privacy campaigners warn that the app,  which will give the government and its agencies, including the police who have shown their willingness to abuse their new powers, the ability to record and store the complete movements of individuals and details of those with whom they were in contact.

If the plan goes through unchallenged, and Boris Jognson’s recent conversion to the kind of authoritarian approach wannabe Galactic Emperor Bill Gates has lobbied for suggests it will, the public will be “coerced” into sharing personal data about their movements, personal liberty activists fear.

This blog has warned from the outset that the whole COVID – 19 coronavirus scare was being used by globalists to effect a huge power grab and the abolition of the rights and liberties we in the democratic nations have come to take for granted.

Johnson’s spokesman added that the priority while waiting for the app to be ready is ensuring continued social distancing in order to fullfil the “five tests” to be met before lockdown measures can be eased. Those tests include falling deaths and falling infection rates. This is ridiculous and confirms our suspicions as empirical evidence shows distancing does not work and lockdown, apart from trashing the economy, has failed to curtail the spread of the disease. Nations like Sweden and South Korea which avoided a lockdown, arguing rationally that the economic damage would cause more deaths in the long term than the virus is ever likely to, have experienced no higher infection rate or deathg rate than normal.

Today’s statement from Downing Street follows a heated exchange in the House of Commons on Tuesday 28 April over proposed legislation setting out the legal basis for processing personal data by the app. Shadow deputy leader of the House, Afzal Khan, said that while the app has an “important role to play,” legislation should ensure that it stores data in a decentralized manner. This is nonsense as data stored in a decentralised way, i.e. a distributed database, can still be pulled together almost instantly on entry of certain keywords.

Responding to Khan, Solicitor General Michael Ellis QC said the app will be “voluntary participation only” and there will be “no private identifiable information on it.” Furthermore, the whole process will be “data protection compliant and there will be an ethical advisory board monitoring it,” he said.

If you believe that look out of the window quickly, you might see several pigs flying over your home.

Internet law professor Lilian Edwards took a more cautionary line, telling MPs, that there was a “precedent of other pandemics leading to a mass land grab in extensive state surveillance.” She is probably referring to the pandemics of damp squibs over the past three decades, including SARS, MERS, Swine Flu, Bird Flu and Ebola. The first four of those were so ludicrously hyped they caused the World Health Organisation to change the edfinition of ‘pandemic’ from hundreds of millions of people all around the world will be infected and millions will die, to ‘a few people here and there will feel a bit poorly.‘ Ebola was different, it killed thousands in west Africa in 2014 / 15 but despite a massive campaign to spread fear and panic in the rest of the world the diseasedid not significantly break out of Africa.

Historically, virus epidemics to tend to burn out after a few months. Why this is so has never been understood.

COVID – 19 has turned into a real pandemic, but there are several aspects of how it is thought to have originated, the way it predominantly attacks the old and those with underlying health problems and the fact that all the world’s leading economies were in deficit because of rising welfare bills, that have led conspiracy theorists to speculate that the timing is suspiciously convenient. And the authoritarian measures adopted by governments, vesting far more powers in the state, tend to fuel those suspicions.

Several EU countries have been developing contact-tracing apps in parallel with the UK, a statement from the EU Commission in Brussels earlier this month stated that it wanted EU members to take a “common approach” to the use of digital technologies and data.

The ‘common approach’  recommendation from Brussels has triggered a debate that is still raging in Europe  over whether to use centralized or decentralized solutions for the apps. While a decentralized approach would see data stored on the user’s own phone, a centralized infrastructure would see data sent to a central database run by public authorities, which civil liberties groups say risks evolving into state surveillance.

The German government plans to adopt a decentralized approach it was announced last week. This is a  U-turn on the previous plan which involved full support of the Pan-European Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing (Pepp-PT) protocol developed by European Union agencies. Berlin will now support decentralized solutions proposed by Apple and Google instead, which leaves the gathered data on devices controlled by US tech corporations. This approach presents even greater problems for personal liberty activists  as on user privacy and data protection the track record of both these predatory corporations is on a par with that of a fox in a chicken coop.

Meanwhile the UK leans toward a centralized model and it’s been reported that experts from GCHQs National Cyber Security Centre, an agency which has been spying on us through our web use, emails, molbile phone calls and texts for over two decades, are advising on the project. So the unalienable human right to privacy is right out the window then.

In France the government of beleagured president Emmanuel Macron has also been pushing a centralized app solution, prompting hundreds of the country’s computer security experts to sign an open letter asking the government to reconsider due to concerns around privacy and individual freedoms.

Johnson’s spokesman said the government would set out more details regarding the British app as soon as it could. Our advice, Just Say No, Do you really need an app that allows a government no sane person would trust, to track their every movement and who they came into contact with.

With the number of confirmed cases of, and deaths from coronavirus in Italy, a nation of 63 million people having now surpassed the number of infections officially admitted by the government of China, a nation of 1.4 billion and the nation where the news strain of coronavirus, COVID – 19 was first observed, it was obvious to the realists among us that the Chinese government’s claims to have contained the virus were deeply suspect and further claims that the outbreak were under control were as reliable as reported sightings of The Tooth Fairy …

If Coronavirus Is So Bad Why No Big Jump In Hospital Admissions or Deaths?

News video shows chaotic scenes of crowded hospitals and desperate people seeking treatman. Noewspaper show pictures of exhibition halls turned into temporary morgues, the floors of these vast buildings covered in body bags.

So WTF is going on? I don’t know, you don’t know, if anyone does know it’s more than their life is worth to leak that information into the public domain. The more I learn the more this whole situation looks like an assault on democracy by the dark forces of globalism.

We need to start asking the difficult questions right now. Because the longer this goes on the more likely we are to end up inhabiting a planet of slave states.

Take a look at these official figures for actual hospital admissions and deaths and no how the picture they offer differs from the fear and panic propagating figures being mentioned on TV news and by print media.

UK To Ask Citizens Over 70 To Self – Isolatate For 4 MONTHS As Coronavirus Fails To Kill Zillions

by Ian R Thorpe

First of al can I say That I’m over 70 and I’ve no intention of self isolating for more than four hours. I know several attractive women half my age who are struggling to pay their rent and might welcome the chance to move into my spare bedroom.

UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock today confirmed the government plans to ask (or probably coerce,) people aged over 70 to isolate themselves  from society for up to four months amid a coronavirus pandemic. The goal is to protect them, but critics say it may be a really bad idea.

It’s quite obvious to us, experience bloggers and lifelong cynics that we are, that the government, civil service, law enforcement and national security agencies and all the assorted experts, pundits and talking heads have forgotten the lesson our generation learned from The Hitch Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy:

giphy

Isolating the elderly is “clearly in the action plan” Health Secretary Matt Hancock has told Sky News, confirming suspicions that the government and its advisors are in full panic mode. Reports in the British media over the past few days have predicted the government would advise older people to stay in their homes for a while ….. but four months? That could be a life sentence for some of us.

“We will be setting out more detail when it’s the right time to do,” Hancock added, which may mean within days or a few weeks down the line.

“We absolutely appreciate that it is a very big ask of the elderly and the vulnerable, and it’s for their own self-protection,” Hancock told Sky News reporter Sophy Ridge.

To date Britain has 1,140 confirmed cases of the Covid-19 disease, with the death toll standing at 21, both statistics being way below the numbers for seasonal ‘flu or sepsis. According to medical professionals elderly people have shown to be more vulnerable to the virus, as they are more likely to develop serious symptoms. This is a misunderstanding of statistics of course as healthy elderly people are no more likely to develop serious symptoms from the infection. It is true to say that elderly people are more likely to die of coronavirus, but then it’s also true to say that elederly people are more likely to die. End of story. Literally.

The British government has been criticized for its response to the coronavirus epidemic, which up to this latest panic measure was based on spreading fear and panic building up “herd immunity,” rather than restraining the spread of the virus. That approach assumed those who developed the infection and recovered would have some immunity, though there is as yet little evidence of that.

The plan to have elderly people isolated for months on end is a bad idea as they have to have contact with the outside world to get food, attend medical appointments and so on, it also subjects them to increased risks of depression and other problems, some critics of the idea say.

Weaponised Ebola Virus? The World Always Cathches Up Eventually?

Gratifying to see the rest of the blogosphere are now asking questions like this:

“What is a US Army Bio-Weapons research lab doing at the heart of Ebola outbreak” (see below)

ebola under control
Image Source: Zero Hedge

It’s a good and valid question and one Boggart Blog asked some weeks ago as the Washington / London / Brussels propaganda machine was ramping up the Ebola fear and panic to a new level.

We actually said that the time that if you are a well nourished westerner there’s not much to worry about. Unless you (like us) are among the ‘crazy conspiracy theories’ who want to know just WTF a US biological weapons team were doing in their experiments with the Ebola virus in the area where the current outbreak began.

See our previous report by clicking the link below:

Fear and Panic and Ebola Fever

In this post you will learn that the government of Sierra Leone recently ordered that the experiments cease and the research unit be closed (Learn more). One of the reasons for the action might be linked to THIS.

And the question Boggart Blog and many others posed;

Why Does The US Government Hold A Patent On The Ebola Virus.

When the ‘Conspiracy Theory’ screechers start up, just remind them that said patent od recistered at the US Patents Office, (thus it is a matter of public record) and is viewable online HERE.

And when you combine that patent with the presence of a US biological weapons research team in the area where Ebola occurs, anyone who does not smell the putrid odour of malfeasance is suffering from either anosmia or brain death.

We are not supposed to ask such questions of those in authority however, but merely to accept that whatever they are doing is for the greater good (of the elite) and nothing to worry our pretty little heads about.

Fear and Panic and Ebola Fever

fear and panic
Fear and Panic (source)

Do you hear that distant drumming, like the sound of racehorses rounding the final turn before they thunder up the home straight, driven by a primary instict to get ahead of the field, as far away as possible from the source of danger. Actually there are only two horses, Phobos and Diemos, the firey eyed stallions whose hooves strike flame from the earth. Phobos and Diemos, fear and panic, the demon horses that pull the chariot of The War God.

It’s fear and panic time again folks. Last time Phobos and Diemos galloped past here they were carrying the threat of jihad as a justification for the war that would provide the economic miracle needed by nations and businesses.

But the threat of Jihad did not generate enough fear and panic to scare the citizens of western powers into supporting their leaders calls for war. Iraq and Afghanistan did not warrant global conflict, attempts to provke Iran evoked a lot of sabre rattling and some very effective cyber attacks in response. In Libya a tyrant fell without a major struggle and the small, oil rich nation descended into dystopian chaos as the ‘brave, democracy loving’ freedom fighters began fighting each other over who would become the next brutal tyrant.

In Egypt a geriatric dictator, Mubarack, was overthrown, the democracy hungry rebels inserted in his place quickly showed themselves to be Islamist theorcrats and were efficiently removed and replace by the man who without western intervention would quietly have replaced Mubarack anyway.

In Syria, rebels sponsored by western money and armed with western weapons failed to overthow the dictator Assad and when the government’s rigourously disciplined and well equipped troops started to get the upper hand the rebels showed their true colours by slaughtering people for being Christian or even the wrong sort of Muslim, holding human organ noshing parties in the squares and market places of towns and villages they held and generally showing themselves to be the kind of people democratic and liberal western politicians should not have been supporting.

And when an attempt to trigger war by staging a false flag attack and trying to blame Assad supporters was thwarted by Russia and China stepping up the the mark alongside Assad and United Nations inspectors having a sudden attack of honesty and revealing the poison gas cannisters could not have been fired Assad’s troops, the warmongers were thwarted again.

The latest attempt to justify war has been the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine allegeDly by pro Russia separatists with support from The Kremlin. So far the ‘compelling evidence’ the American government claimed to possess has not been revealed but such evidence as has been seen points to another false flag even, staged this time by the neo – Fascist government installed in Ukraine by the western powers after the democratically elected government was deposed by a US / EU supported coup d’etat.

And of course a big factor in thwarting the ambitions of the warmongering globalists was public opinion led by the blogosphere reminding voters that our remote and reality averse leaders and the sycophantic media that prop them up cannot be trusted to act in the interests of We The Punters, not in 1914, not in 1939, not in The Cold War, not in the free market shenanigans of 1992 to 2007 and not now.

Because now their are turning up the fear and panic generator dial to eleven and trying to cow us with a pandemic scare. Remember the Swine Flu pandemic when a new species of Flu was Going to jump the species barrier from pigs, mutate into something fatal to humans and kill us all if we did not cede control of our lives to government agencies? Only it didn’t and the World Health Organisation (WHO) had to save face by redefining the meaning of pandemic from “In every nation around the world millions will fall ill and hundreds of thousands will die,” to “A few people here and there will feel a bit poorly.”

They’re doing it again with Ebola fever, ramping up the scare factor and trying to spread enough fear and panic to justify suspending democratic rule by pretending this disease, a terrible killer for which there is no known cure, but which has previously occurred in small outbreaks in parts of the world where killer diseases are always aided and abetted by chronic malnutrition, poor hygiene, lack of medical support and a dearth of pure water for drinking, washing etc.

So should we well nourished, well watered and obsessively clean north Europeans be worried? Cautious and vigilant yes, worried no. And you can take that as a definite ‘no’, in spite of what anybody operating as a shill for wars of corporate profit might tell you.

Some people say there’s a simple cure for Ebola; I could not agree or disagree with them so you can make up your own mind.

“The very first symptoms of ebola are exactly the same as scurvy, which is caused by inadequate vitamin C. Though scurvy is seldom fatal as a primary condition, scurvy also represents only a partial deficiency of vitamin C, the body still has a LOT of vitamin C compared to zero, which ebola causes. Absent ANY vitamin C, blood vessels become very weak and start to lose blood, and platelets become ineffective and unable to trigger clots. So death by ebola is caused by massive internal bleeding and loss of blood, which can be stopped simply by taking enormous doses of vitamin C until the immune system succeeds in killing off the virus.”

Take 20,000 milligrams of Vitamin C an hour.That is about 3,000 milligrams every six minutes.

Sounds a bit extreme, still if you haven’t been to the area where Ebola is active, have not been in contact with anyone who has contracted the virus and you have a healthy diet you have little to worry about.

There are serious questions to basked about this virus however. And people like American libertarian uberblogger Jon Rappoport are asking them. In this section of the linked material he raises questions about research into Ebloa and other haemorrhagic fevers by US Universities and the US Department Of Defense Advanced ReSearch Projects Agency (DARPA) biological warfare unit in the African nations involved in the current Ebola outbreak.

(h/t Jon Rappoport)

Have Tulane researchers been carrying out any experimental treatments (for example: injecting monoclonal antibodies) using citizens of the region? If so, what adverse events have occurred?

The research program, occurring in Sierra Leone, the Republic of Guinea, and Liberia—said to be the epicenter of the 2014 Ebola outbreak—has the announced purpose, among others, of detecting the future use of fever-viruses as bioweapons.

Is this purely defensive research? Or as we have seen in the past, is this research being covertly used to develop offensive bioweapons? For the last several years, researchers from Tulane University have been active in the African areas where Ebola is said to have broken out in 2014. These researchers are working with other institutions, one of which is USAMRIID, the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, a well-known center for biowar research, located at Fort Detrick, Maryland.

In Sierra Leone, the Tulane group has been researching new diagnostic tests for hemorrhagic fevers.

Note: Lassa Fever, Ebola, and other labels are applied to a spectrum of illness that result in hemorrhaging.

Needless to say, the US Department of Defense and Tulane University have not been keen to provide answers. It may be significant however that the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health announced via its Facebook page that among measures aimed at halting the spread of Ebloa it has requested the Tulane University researchers to stop their experiments. Here’s a link to the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health page on Facebook (it’s the first post you arrive at for July 23), and below, to save you scrolling, is the text of the message (emphasis added).

Status Update By Ministry of Health and Sanitation, Sierra Leone
Ebola outbreak update: As of today, 23rd July 2014, we have 108 cumulative number of survivors, 427 confirmed Ebola cases and 144 Ebola confirmed deaths. 65 patients are currently admitted at the Ebola treatment centers in Kenema and Kailahun.

The Ministry of Health & Sanitization and the World Health Organization have established a dedicated Ebola Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at the WHO Country Office in Freetown. The EOC is co-Directed by the Minister of Health, Ms. Miata Kargbo and the WHO Representative for Sierra Leone, Dr. Jacob Mufunda and consists of leaders and partners involved in our fight against Ebola.

The EOC will serve as the Sierra Leone National Central Command and Control Center for Outbreak Response activities and meets every day. The EOC members under the leadership of the Honourable Minister of Health and Sanitation unanimously decided at the July 22nd 2014 meeting that the following actions be effected immediately:

• That all new confirmed cases be admitted at the Treatment Center in Kailahun whiles the Ministry and its partners work on relocating the Treatment Center in Kenema out of the Kenema Government Hospital Premise to another location as requested by health workers and the people of Kenema

• The existing patients at the treatment center in Kenema continue to be cared for at that center with enhanced Infection Prevention Control and nursing care

• More health personnel be trained in Infection Prevention Control and nursing care

• Tulane University to stop Ebola testing during the current Ebola outbreak

• Center for Disease Control (CDC) to officially send their findings and recommendations from the assessment of the laboratory and treatment center in Kenema

• The Ministry of Health and Sanitation to proceed with the procurement of three vehicles currently in country for contact tracing and surveillance

The EOC wishes the general public and all partners working in the healthcare sector to know that Dr. Shiekh Umar Khan is still alive and responding to treatment contrary to social media report of his demise.

Whenever you hear the hoofbeats of Phobos and Deimos, don’t be afraid. Just remind yourself that whenever governments let loose fear and panic it is to conceal the fact that they are up to no good.

‘White House Attacked, Obama Injured’

I did not post this news item yesterday when I first saw it for reasons that will become obvious.

A tweet allegedly from the Associated Press Agency claiming two explosions in the White House and that President Barack Obama had been injured – went global causing the US stock market to crash in minutes.

As supposed hoaxes go, this one was huge, in more ways than one.

The scene was set for a catastrophic outbreak of fear and panic with America a country on edge following the attacks at the Boston Marathon last week.

The alleged ‘hoax tweet’ hit Twitter and immediately triggered talk of a terror attack on the White House and Al Qaeda operatives on the loose in Washington DC was said to be the work of hackers accessing the AP social media account. Whoever was responsible caused US markets to plummet and the CBOE Volatility Index – aka ‘the fear and panic index’, to surge… all in a matter of minutes. It was just like an episode of 24.

Authorities claim that this tweet is a hack which originated from the “Syrian Electronic Army”, but independent bloggers speculated that there may be more to it than meets they eye is more here than meets the eye. The event manged to wipe $200 billion worth of market value off of the stock market in a flash. Even though no bomb had gone off, short sellers on Wall Street could have made a bomb.

The hoax may turn out to be on a par with media the biggest media ‘false-flag false start’ in history when the BBC announced that WTC building 7 had collapsed 20 minutes ahead of the actual event and while the building was clearly upstanding in the background behind the reporter.

According to the report below from RT, it was made possible by a perfect storm – new technology that can ‘read’ social media messages and place bets accordingly, and the recent Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) move that gave companies permission to release vital information through social media such as Twitter and Facebook.

And then this tweet appears, and they’re blaming it on the Syrians..? Just a coincidence or a demonstration of the dangers of becoming slaves to the machine?

What is most gobsmacking though FFS is the story only ever appeared as a tweet on twitter (hardly the most reliable source) and without checking, supposedly intelligent people sold valuable assets.

Hurricane Irene and the difference between America and the two Englands

Observing the way America’s East coast prepared for Hurricane Irene was very revealing for someone who studies the ways different communities react to events.

Americans as usual were siezed by fear and panic went into Blackburn Rovers headless chicken mode, running around shouting “The hurricane is coming, the hurricane is coming, we’re all going to die.”

In southern England last time the nation was warned a hurricane was on the way people were talking like this:

Darren: What about this hurricane then, should we give the pub a miss tonight mate?”

Jason: Nah, but perhaps we should get off before the lock in starts.

Meanwhile in northern England where no hurricane would dare show its face, the last time we were warned of a serious weather event with 100mph winds, torrental rain and thunder and lightening we were saying, “Summer’s here, ’bout bloody time too,” before stripping off and getting out the deck chairs. And a slight panic caused by over anxious types fretting about missing fell racers in Cumbria who had been washed away by the storm quickly died down when the fell racers turned up and said they were never lost and had had quite a jolly time in the pub where they were sheltering.

The Politics Of Fear And Panic

Defending Keynes

As opinion polls continue to be all over the place in their efforts to predict who will win the election we find politicians in the Labour, Consrrvative and Liberal Democrat increasingly resorting to fear and panic in their effort to win votes.

Boggart Blog was the first popular news site to draw you attention to the way the governments use fear and panic to divert people’ attention from what is really going on. We reported on fear and panic being spread by governments about alien clouds of mass destruction ,
beards of terror,
Biblical Plagues,
Swine Flu,

Bat Fever,
Soup
, Chavs and Volcanic Dust, indeed we have been at the forefront of the fight againt fear and panic.

In this election campaing it is Labour who are relying most on fear and panic. “Don’t vote Conservative ecause they will sell the NHS to Carphone Warehouse” Gordon Brown warns. “Don’t vote Lib Dem,” he says, “because they will gang up with the Tories and they’ll send posh people to your house to patronise you and if you complain they will send a man with a ginger beard to beat you round the head with a dwarf conifer.”

Don’t vote Labour because society is broken and they broke it, they will take away all your toys and civil liberties and implant computer chips in your brain so you can be controlled from an underground bunker near Droitwich, and don’t vote Lib Dem because they’re wusses and want PR and can’t be in my gang,” says David Cameron.

Don’t vote for either of them because they will spend all your money on guided missiles and firework displays and bailouts for bankers and have none left for public services,” say Nick Clegg and Vince Cable.

All any of them are really saying is “be more afraid of the others than you are of us.”

Meanwhile, the financial crisis causing the Eurozone to implode is nothing new, it is just the same crisis as the G20 leaders put a sticking plaster over last year. Now it has festered and we see it is not a little zit that can be cured by a dab of antseptic, it is an effing big tumour of toxic debt and is about to consume us all.

It’s too late for fear and panic. Just vote for the candidate who will defend your right to think for yourself.
