The terrorist attacks on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka were absolutely horrendous. The death-toll has been enormous. And the fact that the attacks occurred on Easter Sunday specifically – and were primarily targeting innocent Christian worshippers – was clearly intended to spell out what...

So. The crucifixion. And the resurrection. A story, a myth, or an ideal or a foundation-stone of faith, that has exerted an almost unparalleled power over generations, societies, and millions and millions of people for almost two-thousand years. Did it happen? No one knows. No one will ever know...

So Julian Assange has finally been dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy by UK police. Soon to be extradited to the United States, this development – as dramatic as the scenes were – was hardly surprising: and has been on the horizon for a very long time. If anything, I’m shocked at how long it’...

I wrote an article here a while ago about ‘The End of International Law‘: and how international law was being openly flouted on a casual basis by various parties, essentially rendering international law meaningless. I wasn’t really talking about Israel much in that piece; but I should’ve been....

So, I went back and forth for a few days on whether to even bother writing this article. Having already written about Kurt Cobain here at length on a number of previous occasions, I didn’t know if there was anything left worth saying. Among these older pieces, five years ago – on the twentieth...

I published a couple of pieces here last year, talking about how worrying and dangerous it was that the language – and indeed the policies – surrounding nuclear weapons appeared to be changing: and how this had ominous implications. Why that subject particularly came into focus was because of...

What happened in Christchurch, New Zealand, is not surprising. An event like that has been coming: and there’s going to be more of them elsewhere. With the extent of the continuous propaganda and brainwashing content (or experiment) being run across the uglier sections of the Internet, it’s...

In June 2014, a group of armed militants and extremists made their dramatic journey across the Syrian border into Iraq, quickly capturing Mosul and Baiji and almost reaching the capital Baghdad. The group possessed convoys of identical Toyota trucks and the kind of arsenal some countries in the...

Leaving Neverland is a very difficult thing to react to. Because, the way it is constructed, it leaves no real room for any diversity in interpretation. The way it is constructed, there’s only two possible reactions: either you believe it wholly or you dismiss it as a lie. It’s very difficult to...

So it’s been practically impossible to avoid all of the coverage and fallout from the Leaving Neverland film, which had its UK broadcast late last week. I already covered a lot of the allegations and tabloid coverage of Michael Jackson allegations here last week, prior to seeing the film: and...

If ever there was a geo-political situation that seemed ultimately hopeless and perhaps destined to one day go very badly, it might be the relationship between India and Pakistan. A situation that has been going on for decades, and in which it seems like the only ‘best-case scenario’ would be a...

This is a follow-up, I guess, to the article I last published here on the Shamima Begum or ‘ISIS bride’ media storm: but asking some follow-up questions and raising some related issues. In that other article, I asked about why the teenage girl’s situation was being so blown up in the media,...

It’s been difficult to ignore or avoid the massive coverage, controversy and debate surrounding the ‘ISIS bride’ Shamima Begum that has dominated British news in the passed week or so. The massively inflated ‘scandal’ has created differences in opinion over what should be done with her, whether...

The war in Yemen – and it’s accompanying humanitarian catastrophe – has been going on a very long time now; and it shows no signs of abating any time soon. I talked about the humanitarian side of it here recently. And about the seeming apathy of Western media and politicians and the hypocrisy in...

Everyone will have noticed the sudden explosion of new Michael Jackson stories, claims and allegations, that have hit newspapers and websites in the passed fortnight or so – in the wake of the Sundance Film Festival screening of the film Leaving Neverland. The claims have all emerged in the wake...

As a lifelong Nirvana fan, it has always stuck out like a sore thumb to me that the single ‘Lithium’ never had a proper music video. It was in fact the only single from Nevermind that didn’t have a proper video: ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’, ‘Come As You Are’ and ‘In Bloom’ all had what […]

As the multi-layered manuevering in regard to Venezuela continues, it was reported a couple of days ago that the Bank of England has taken actions in line with Washington’s lead. The Bank of England has refused to hand over $1.2 billion of Venezuelan gold back to the Venzuelan government. Above...

So it looks like US military intervention in Venezuela might be on the cards. Certainly, with Washington and other Western governments now officially recognising someone other than the sitting president as the legitimate leader, it’s hard to see how there won’t have to be some kind of forced...

I don’t usually do these kinds of subjects, for various reasons: even though they’re usually so interesting. But a couple of current stories have prompted it. I’ll get to Michael Jackson: but the first thing is that I was baffled when I noticed a headline pop up on one of my newsfeeds that said...

You know, sometimes you start out with a simple question. And you start exploring for possible answers to that question; only to end up falling down a deeper rabbit-hole than you had expected. Then you just end up with more questions. A lot of coverage was given to Donald Trump’s decision...

I’ve already published a long reaction/opinion piece on the Chris Cornell tribute even – ‘I Am the Highway’, which focused mostly on the musical performances and the final Soundgarden performance. Here, I wanted to create an additional space to talk about a different side of things: and...

I’m not going to add much of my own to this, because it’s unnecessary. Naomi Wolf – one of the very best researchers and independent journalists out there – thorougly explains the matter in this video and discusses its implications. Media, as far as I can tell, has said absolutely nothing about...

I did whole, very long piece already on the Chris Cornell tribute event on Wednesday night, in which I covered mostly everything. But I really wanted to create this space here to talk solely about the final performance of Soundgarden and about that utterly beautiful, incredibly powerful final...

So the Chris Cornell tribute concert took place on Wednesday night in Los Angeles. The show was huge, with an array of high-profile performers and acts coming together to pay tribute to the late musical icon whose death in May 2017 is still reverberating across music fandom. I wasn’t originally...

The release of the Laurel and Hardy film biopic Stan & Ollie has brought the legendary comedy duo back into the public consciousness for a while. And it reminded me that, among various things I’ve written for this site over the years but never posted, there was a piece on Stan Laurel and...

Alright, so I’ve neglected to touch on this subject for a very long time. I did cover it in March 2015 when the catastrophe started (and sporadically since then), but I’ve generally neglected it. Not because I don’t care: but because I find this subject so upsetting, so dispiriting, that I can’t...

Just looking ahead to 2019 a little, and wondering what fresh bullshit is on the horizon, I can see the months ahead being dominated by a few (related) things: all of it centering on the meme of ‘rising up’ against the ‘elites’. The ‘Yellow Vest’ movement, which started in Paris, and has...

So I’ve just rewatched The Last Jedi for the fifth time now. And I want to talk about why it may be… time for the (Last) Jedi (hate)… to end. And why this film flourishes emotionally and viscerally, even as it collapses logically and critically. I wish I could outright hate this movie or...

A fair amount of new music comes my way on a fairly regular basis: and most of the time now I decline to post reviews. This is partly because this website juggles a bunch of different content subjects/genres and I get less time than I’d like to focus on music (I really did primarily want […]

A recent announcement in the press says an ancient ring found in Bethlehem ‘belonged to the man who crucified Jesus’. The man they refer to is actually the Prefect or Governor, Pontius Pilate – so, strictly speaking, not ‘the man crucified Jesus’, but the man who okayed the crucifixion. The...

The Lockerbie bombing in 1988 was perhaps the 9/11 of its time: and today marks 30 years since it happened. While it didn’t result in the kind of phony Global ‘War on Terror’ that was conducted after 9/11, it did give the US and Britain the platform for beginning a targeted downfall of a...

Aaaand so the Tommy Robinson shit-show just goes on. And on. And on and on. I give credit to Nigel Farage for jumping ship before the Shit Show really gets going. He writes: “The very idea of Tommy Robinson being at the centre of the Brexit debate is too awful to contemplate…” Actually the very...

So the shooting/attack in Strasborg at the Christmas Market. It doesn’t really need much thinking to go into this, but I’m giving it a go partly for Mark from Truthscoop: because he pointed out that hardly anyone appears to have spoken about this particular ‘act of terror’ in any sceptical terms...

I’ve been a little late focusing on the ‘Yellow Vest’ protests or strikes in France. But it seems to me, given a cursory reading of various sources, like a legitimate, mass expression of dissatisfaction with the French establishment politicians. A lot of people in France are fed up and have...

The rise of Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil seems to be further proof that pretty much the entire planet is moving in a counter-clockwise direction. Almost everywhere you look, there seems to be the sense that the Bad Guys are in the ascendancy: and that – far from opposing it – very large sections of...

Amid all the recent provocation and manuevering concerning Russia, Ukraine and the Azov Sea (see here and here), another story may have passed under a lot of peoples’ radars: concerning not the Azov Sea, but Ukraine’s Neo-Nazi ‘Azov Batallion’. It’s arguably not a huge story in itself: and I’ll...

It can be dangerous to be an activist for the environment or even for human rights: particularly in a country where foreign-trained Death Squads are working directly for the corporations whose interests you’re interfering with. I covered the murder Honduran activist Beta Caceres here in 2016. I...

The burning up of so much of California over a short period of time (in 2017 and now in 2018) has amounted to what has been called the most destructive ‘wildfire’ event in the state’s history. The scale of the damage has been enormous, as well as the disruption to people’s lives, the loss of...

100 years ago, the First World War was a devastating conflict in which many millions of people lost their lives and in which the political, social and even geographical state of the world was changed forever. But, far from being the “war to end all wars”, the consequences of World War I are very...

A statue of the late Soundgarden/Audioslave frontman and rock music legend, Chris Cornell, was recently unveiled in Seattle. I haven’t been able to figure out how I feel about this monument, or what it’s meant to represent, or for who’s sake it has been erected. My instinctive reaction to the...

The latest episode of the Reality TV show that is presently the United States of America appeared to make very little sense: though it was a high-quality drama that helped fill media space for a few days and keep everyone occupied.

‘The world is a stage’, the saying goes. Lately, I’ve been more acutely aware of something that had been prodding at my mind for a while: but that I hadn’t quite put my finger on properly. Specifically, the idea that a fake or ‘scripted’ reality is playing out all over the place – and that […]...

The apparent murder of US-based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi within the premises of the Saudi embassy in Turkey has sparked days of outrage, threats, debate, and conspiracy theory.

The recent anniversary of 9/11 got me thinking about some of the ongoing oddities around the World Trade Center attack. It also got me thinking about various interesting connections in elite circles, New York real estate, the Trump era and how it relates to the ongoing psy-op of the post-9/11...

The Salisbury poisoning saga has gotten more and more confusing and uncertain as it has dragged on. I don’t particularly even care: I’m just watching with baffled curiosity. In the first instance, I expressed doubts about the story, on account of both the timing and the fact that Salisbury (and...

I’ve been talking here for some time about a manufactured ‘race war’ or ‘civil wars’ psy-op, utilising age-old divide-and-conquer strategies and propaganda and being run at various levels of media and society. It has been unfolding in pretty much every country: and in the last three years, it...
