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...

At this time, there are no doubt scores of World War I articles and expositions being published right now. But I also want to talk about one of the more famous cultural homages to the First World War – the fourth and final series of the classic British series Blackadder; and in particular its...

The highly divisive drama in the US, concerning the ‘Migrant Caravan’ from Central America, is clearly being manipulated and stage-managed by the media and by rival propaganda campaigns that are using vulnerable human beings as tools for mass manipulation and division. In fact, this isn’t new:...

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. In fact, the whole thing did come across like an entirely stage-...

‘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. From everything we’ve been told, he was probably murdered within the Saudi embassy: the surface-level narrative...

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...

This is ‘Part II’ of the article that was originally talking about the situation in Sweden: now I want to focus on Germany. Though, broadly speaking, this is all one subject. There are groups, ideologies, platforms and parties right now that are working to push all of civilisation into a ‘race...

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...

This is an article about censorship – particularly, in this latest instance, involving (unfortunately) the very platform I am publishing on right now: and whether it will continue to be as safe or as accomodating a space for blogs like this one as it has been until now. But first, I’m putting up...

In the previous article, I laid out why I think we should be sceptical of Alex Jones and Info Wars, based on various factors. In this follow-up article, I really want to square in on why we should be worried about ‘Info Wars’, its role in things and its possible purpose. I said that my […]

First up, I should fully disclose my viewpoint: Alex Jones and Info Wars are psy-ops – psychological warfare/control operations, conducted primarily on Americans – but also substantially across the Western world. I’ve said this for ages. Which is why I had a mixed reaction to the Info Wars ‘...

So the Labour Party is now “an existential threat” to Jews in Britain…? Really? I mean, think about what that language is actually supposed to imply or evoke. We’re not just being told about an ‘anti-semitism crisis‘ anymore, but an “existential threat“. An existential threat suggests something...

I mean that pretty much sums it up. Which is what I’ve been saying here the whole time anyway – that the whole Tommy Robinson thing is a staged psy-op for dummies and for the sake of maintaining the ‘race war‘ strategy of tension. And the fact that ‘Mr Robinson’ has now been released from […]

You will have seen the headlines over the last week, concerning the ‘evacuation’ of the White Helmets from Syria.

Admittedly, I am guilty of mixing a couple of apparently unrelated subjects here: but, as you’ll see, there’s probably good reason for doing so. There’s a big debate currently going on in the UK. The big debate is over two brutal jihadists – Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh – and their...

He does seem to have a lot of friends. Some in high places; lots of them in not very high places at all. Later today, lots of them will be out in the street again, apparently embracing their role as ‘useful idiots’ in a scripted pantomime. This is really an add-on to the much larger […]

Another two people have been allegedly poisoned by the Soviet-era nerve-agent ‘Novichok‘, this time in Amesbury. And Russia and England are both still in the 2018 World Cup, with just over a week left to go. Those probably seem like two unrelated statements: and maybe they are. Then again, maybe...

It’s a curious error; assuming it was an error at all – and it might’ve cost someone in admin their job. A couple of weeks ago, an odd story popped up in the media very briefly. It came when a journalist put in a request via the Freedom of Information Act. The journalist in question […]

For at least two months after Chris Cornell died a year ago, I didn’t listen to any Soundgarden music or any other Cornell music at all. And I avoided all videos or Cornell-related content. I wrote something here right after his death was announced: and something a few months later when Cornell’...

There are some days when the sheer scope of the idiocy makes me want to not get out of bed. If ever you needed proof of how many witless muppets are – hook, line and sinker – caught up in the ‘race war’ or ‘clash of civilisations’ psy-op, you need only witness the tedious #FreeTommy […]
