CIA Admists Using fake News To Subvert Democracy For Decades

(via Zero hedge)
Newly-declassified documents show that a senior CIA agent and Deputy Director of the Directorate of Intelligence worked closely with the owners and journalists of many of the largest media outlets. The United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities found in 1975 that the CIA submitted stories to the American press.

Wikipedia adds details:

After 1953, the network was overseen by Allen W. Dulles, director of the CIA. By this time, Operation Mockingbird had a major influence over 25 newspapers and wire agencies. The usual methodology was placing reports developed from intelligence provided by the CIA to witting or unwitting reporters. Those reports would then be repeated or cited by the preceding reporters which in turn would then be cited throughout the media wire services.

The Office of Policy Coordination (OPC) was funded by siphoning off funds intended for the Marshall Plan [i.e. the rebuilding of Europe by the U.S. after WWII]. Some of this money was used to bribe journalists and publishers.

In 2008, the New York Times wrote:

During the early years of the cold war, [prominent writers and artists, from Arthur Schlesinger Jr. to Jackson Pollock] were supported, sometimes lavishly, always secretly, by the C.I.A. as part of its propaganda war against the Soviet Union. It was perhaps the most successful use of “soft power” in American history.

A CIA operative told Washington Post owner Philip Graham … in a conversation about the willingness of journalists to peddle CIA propaganda and cover stories:

You could get a journalist cheaper than a good call girl, for a couple hundred dollars a month.
Famed Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein wrote in 1977:
More than 400 American journalists … in the past twenty?five years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency, according to documents on file at CIA headquarters.

***

In many instances, CIA documents show, journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the consent of the managements of America’s leading news organizations.

***

Among the executives who lent their cooperation to the Agency were [the heads of CBS, Time, the New York Times, the Louisville Courier?Journal, and Copley News Service. Other organizations which cooperated with the CIA include [ABC, NBC, AP, UPI, Reuters], Hearst Newspapers, Scripps?Howard, Newsweek magazine, the Mutual Broadcasting System, the Miami Herald and the old Saturday Evening Post and New York Herald?Tribune.

***

There is ample evidence that America’s leading publishers and news executives allowed themselves and their organizations to become handmaidens to the intelligence services. “Let’s not pick on some poor reporters, for God’s sake,” William Colby exclaimed at one point to the Church committee’s investigators. “Let’s go to the managements.

***

The CIA even ran a formal training program in the 1950s to teach its agents to be journalists. Intelligence officers were “taught to make noises like reporters,” explained a high CIA official, and were then placed in major news organizations with help from management.

***

Once a year during the 1950s and early 1960s, CBS correspondents joined the CIA hierarchy for private dinners and briefings.

***

Allen Dulles often interceded with his good friend, the late Henry Luce, founder of Time and Life magazines, who readily allowed certain members of his staff to work for the Agency and agreed to provide jobs and credentials for other CIA operatives who lacked journalistic experience.

***

In the 1950s and early 1960s, Time magazine’s foreign correspondents attended CIA “briefing” dinners similar to those the CIA held for CBS.

***

When Newsweek was purchased by the Washington Post Company, publisher Philip L. Graham was informed by Agency officials that the CIA occasionally used the magazine for cover purposes, according to CIA sources. “It was widely known that Phil Graham was somebody you could get help from,” said a former deputy director of the Agency. “Frank Wisner dealt with him.” Wisner, deputy director of the CIA from 1950 until shortly before his suicide in 1965, was the Agency’s premier orchestrator of “black” operations, including many in which journalists were involved. Wisner liked to boast of his “mighty Wurlitzer,” a wondrous propaganda instrument he built, and played, with help from the press.)

***

In November 1973, after [the CIA claimed to have ended the program], Colby told reporters and editors from the New York Times and the Washington Star that the Agency had “some three dozen” American newsmen “on the CIA payroll,” including five who worked for “general?circulation news organizations.” Yet even while the Senate Intelligence Committee was holding its hearings in 1976, according to high?level CIA sources, the CIA continued to maintain ties with seventy?five to ninety journalists of every description—executives, reporters, stringers, photographers, columnists, bureau clerks and members of broadcast technical crews. More than half of these had been moved off CIA contracts and payrolls but they were still bound by other secret agreements with the Agency. According to an unpublished report by the House Select Committee on Intelligence, chaired by Representative Otis Pike, at least fifteen news organizations were still providing cover for CIA operatives as of 1976.

***

Those officials most knowledgeable about the subject say that a figure of 400 American journalists is on the low side ….

“There were a lot of representations that if this stuff got out some of the biggest names in journalism would get smeared” ….

An expert on propaganda testified under oath during trial that the CIA now employs THOUSANDS of reporters and OWNS its own media organizations. Whether or not his estimate is accurate, it is clear that many prominent reporters still report to the CIA.

A 4-part BBC documentary called the “Century of the Self” shows that an American – Freud’s nephew, Edward Bernays – created the modern field of manipulation of public perceptions, and the U.S. government has extensively used his techniques.

John Pilger is a highly-regarded journalist (the BBC’s world affairs editor John Simpson remarked, “A country that does not have a John Pilger in its journalism is a very feeble place indeed”). Pilger said in 2007:

We now know that the BBC and other British media were used by the British secret intelligence service MI-6. In what they called Operation Mass Appeal, MI-6 agents planted stories about Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction, such as weapons hidden in his palaces and in secret underground bunkers. All of these stories were fake.

***

One of my favorite stories about the Cold War concerns a group of Russian journalists who were touring the United States. On the final day of their visit, they were asked by the host for their impressions. “I have to tell you,” said the spokesman, “that we were astonished to find after reading all the newspapers and watching TV day after day that all the opinions on all the vital issues are the same. To get that result in our country we send journalists to the gulag. We even tear out their fingernails. Here you don’t have to do any of that. What is the secret?”

Nick Davies wrote in the Independent in 2008:

For the first time in human history, there is a concerted strategy to manipulate global perception. And the mass media are operating as its compliant assistants, failing both to resist it and to expose it.

The sheer ease with which this machinery has been able to do its work reflects a creeping structural weakness which now afflicts the production of our news. I’ve spent the last two years researching a book about falsehood, distortion and propaganda in the global media.

The “Zarqawi letter” which made it on to the front page of The New York Times in February 2004 was one of a sequence of highly suspect documents which were said to have been written either by or to Zarqawi and which were fed into news media.

This material is being generated, in part, by intelligence agencies who continue to work without effective oversight; and also by a new and essentially benign structure of “strategic communications” which was originally designed by doves in the Pentagon and Nato who wanted to use subtle and non-violent tactics to deal with Islamist terrorism but whose efforts are poorly regulated and badly supervised with the result that some of its practitioners are breaking loose and engaging in the black arts of propaganda.

***

The Pentagon has now designated “information operations” as its fifth “core competency” alongside land, sea, air and special forces. Since October 2006, every brigade, division and corps in the US military has had its own “psyop” element producing output for local media. This military activity is linked to the State Department’s campaign of “public diplomacy” which includes funding radio stations and news websites. In Britain, the Directorate of Targeting and Information Operations in the Ministry of Defence works with specialists from 15 UK psyops, based at the Defence Intelligence and Security School at Chicksands in Bedfordshire.

In the case of British intelligence, you can see this combination of reckless propaganda and failure of oversight at work in the case of Operation Mass Appeal. This was exposed by the former UN arms inspector Scott Ritter, who describes in his book, Iraq Confidential, how, in London in June 1998, he was introduced to two “black propaganda specialists” from MI6 who wanted him to give them material which they could spread through “editors and writers who work with us from time to time”.

The government is still paying off reporters to spread disinformation. And the corporate media are acting like virtual “escort services” for the moneyed elites, selling access – for a price – to powerful government officials, instead of actually investigating and reporting on what those officials are doing.

One of the ways that the U.S. government spreads propaganda is by making sure that it gets its version out first. For example, the head of the U.S. Information Agency’s television and film division – Alvin A. Snyder – wrote in his book Warriors of Disinformation: How Lies, Videotape, and the USIA Won the Cold War:

All governments, including our own, lie when it suits their purposes. The key is to lie first.

***

Another casualty, always war’s first, was the truth. The story of [the accidental Russian shootdown of a Korean airliner] will be remembered pretty much the way we told it in 1983, not the way it really happened.

In 2013, the American Congress repealed the formal ban against the deployment of propaganda against U.S. citizens living on American soil. So there’s even less to constrain propaganda than before.

One of the most common uses of propaganda is to sell unnecessary and counter-productive wars. Given that the American media is always pro-war, mainstream publishers, producers, editors, and reporters are willing participants.

It’s not just lying about Saddam’s non-existent weapons of mass destruction … the corporate media is still selling lies to promote war.

Former Newsweek and Associated Press reporter Robert Parry notes that Ronald Reagan and the CIA unleashed a propaganda campaign in the 1980’s to sell the American public on supporting the Contra rebels, utilizing private players such as Rupert Murdoch to spread disinformation. Parry notes that many of the same people that led Reagan’s domestic propaganda effort in the 1980’s are in power today:

While the older generation that pioneered these domestic propaganda techniques has passed from the scene, many of their protégés are still around along with some of the same organizations. The National Endowment for Democracy, which was formed in 1983 at the urging of CIA Director Casey and under the supervision of Walter Raymond’s NSC operation, is still run by the same neocon, Carl Gershman, and has an even bigger budget, now exceeding $100 million a year.

Gershman and his NED played important behind-the-scenes roles in instigating the Ukraine crisis by financing activists, journalists and other operatives who supported the coup against elected President Yanukovych. The NED-backed Freedom House also beat the propaganda drums. [See Consortiumnews.com’s “A Shadow Foreign Policy.”]

Two other Reagan-era veterans, Elliott Abrams and Robert Kagan, have both provided important intellectual support for continuing U.S. interventionism around the world. Earlier this year, Kagan’s article for The New Republic, entitled “Superpowers Don’t Get to Retire,” touched such a raw nerve with President Obama that he hosted Kagan at a White House lunch and crafted the presidential commencement speech at West Point to deflect some of Kagan’s criticism of Obama’s hesitancy to use military force.

***

Rupert Murdoch’s media empire is bigger than ever ….

Another key to American propaganda is the constant repetition of propaganda. As Business Insider reported in 2013:
Lt. Col. Daniel Davis, a highly-respected officer who released a critical report regarding the distortion of truth by senior military officials in Iraq and Afghanistan ….

From Lt. Col. Davis:
In context, Colonel Leap is implying we ought to change the law to enable Public Affairs officers to influence American public opinion when they deem it necessary to “protect a key friendly center of gravity, to wit US national will.” The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012 appears to serve this purpose by allowing for the American public to be a target audience of U.S. government-funded information campaigns.

Davis also quotes Brigadier General Ralph O. Baker — the Pentagon officer responsible for the Department of Defense’s Joint Force Development — who defines Information Operations (IO) as activities undertaken to “shape the essential narrative of a conflict or situation and thus affect the attitudes and behaviors of the targeted audience.”

Brig. Gen. Baker goes on to equate descriptions of combat operations with the standard marketing strategy of repeating something until it is accepted:

For years, commercial advertisers have based their advertisement strategies on the premise that there is a positive correlation between the number of times a consumer is exposed to product advertisement and that consumer’s inclination to sample the new product. The very same principle applies to how we influence our target audiences when we conduct COIN.

And those “thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs” appear to serve Baker’s strategy, which states: “Repetition is a key tenet of IO execution, and the failure to constantly drive home a consistent message dilutes the impact on the target audiences.”

Government Massively Manipulates the Web, Social Media and Other Forms of Communication

Of course, the Web and social media have become a huge media platform, and the Pentagon and other government agencies are massively manipulating both.

Documents released by Snowden show that spies manipulate polls, website popularity and pageview counts, censor videos they don’t like and amplify messages they do.

The CIA and other government agencies also put enormous energy into pushing propaganda through movies, television and video games.

Cross-Border Propaganda

Propaganda isn’t limited to our own borders …

Sometimes, the government plants disinformation in American media in order to mislead foreigners. For example, an official government summary of America’s overthrow of the democratically-elected president of Iran in the 1950's states, “In cooperation with the Department of State, CIA had several articles planted in major American newspapers and magazines which, when reproduced in Iran, had the desired psychological effect in Iran and contributed to the war of nerves against Mossadeq” (page x).

The CIA has also bribed leading foreign journalists.

And CNN accepted money from the brutal Bahrani dictatorship to run pro-monarchy propaganda.

Everyone Who Challenges the Status Quo Is Labeled As a Purveyor of “Fake News” … Or Worse

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects the freedom of the press from censorship by government.

Indeed, the entire reason that it’s unlawful for the government to stop stories from being printed is because that would punish those who criticize those in power.

Why? Because the Founding Father knew that governments (like the British monarchy) will always crack down on those who point out that the emperor has no clothes.

But the freedom of the press is under massive attack in America today. For example, the powers-that-be argue that only highly-paid corporate media shills who will act as stenographers for the fatcats should have the constitutional protections guaranteeing freedom of the press.

A Harvard law school professor argues that the First Amendment is outdated and should be abandoned.

When financially-savvy bloggers challenged the Federal Reserve’s policy, a Fed official called all bloggers stupid and unqualified to comment.

And the government is treating the real investigative reporters like criminals … or even terrorists:

  • The government admits that journalists could be targeted with counter-terrorism laws (and here). For example, after Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Chris Hedges, journalist Naomi Wolf, Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg and others sued the government to enjoin the NDAA’s allowance of the indefinite detention of Americans – the judge asked the government attorneys 5 times whether journalists like Hedges could be indefinitely detained simply for interviewing and then writing about bad guys. The government refused to promise that journalists like Hedges won’t be thrown in a dungeon for the rest of their lives without any right to talk to a judge
  • In an effort to protect Bank of America from the threatened Wikileaks expose of the bank’s wrongdoing, the Department of Justice told Bank of America to a hire a specific hardball-playing law firm to assemble a team to take down WikiLeaks (and see this)
Postscript: See this and this.

DC Leaks Expose George Soros Manipulating Elections

by Voltaire's Ghost, 17 August 2016

Billionaire financier and enthusiastic advocate for a global authoritarian government George Soros has been exposed by whistleblower site DC Leaks, as having been involved in manipulating the outcomes of European elections. In a new release of hacked documents from the many 'philanthropic' organisations, all linked through his Open Society Foundations,that hehe uses as fronts foractivities aimed at furthering his political agendas, Soros' role in funding and organising extreme left wing groups to campaign for the abolition of national borders, borderline terrorist groups such as Black Lives Matter, and International Rescue, a charity involved in the 'resettlement of refugees' that seems unable to distinguish between refugees and migrants and between migrants and terrorists.

The new leak, published by the mysterious and scertive website reveals over 2,500 documents from international Soros groups, many of which expose work plans and strategies, for helping candidates sympathetic to Soros' political aims to win elections, and also plans for promoting and assisting third world residents who are in reality economic migrants who would not be accepted as immigrants to European nations through official channels to gain entry as refugees or migrants and be given asylum in Europe.

This new leak comes only a week after hacked Clinton emails exposed Soros issuing the then Secretary of State with orders regarding foreign policy. Considering Soros has recently donated over $25 million to the Hillary Clinton campaign, the question of how much influence he has purchased is a legitimate one. The Observer report:

So far in the current US election campaign, the billionaire investor has donated over $25 million to Clinton and other Democratic Party members, with much more expected before November. In return, it appears huge tranches of the Democratic Party manifesto were written by soros or his political apparatchiks. Soros has also funded Media Matters, founded by David Brock, who operates on behalf of Clinton in several dubious capacities—like running the 'Correct the Record' SuperPAC, which hires Internet trolls to spread pro-Clinton ideologies and undermine the credibility of Clinton's opponents on the Internet.

Soros earned his reputation as an immensely powerful and well connected manipulator when, in the early 1990s, he engineered an economic crisis in Britain by 'going short' on the British Pound (i.e. he made forward contracts to sell Pounds at prices much lower than the prevailing rate, but did it on such a scale he panicked the markets into selling the British currency, fearing it was about to crash. The scam, because that is what it was, became known as "Black Wednesday," and made Soros over a billion dollars at the expense of Britain’s economy. In 1998, Malaysia’s prime minister attacked Soros for inciting negative influences on the country’s economy through currency speculation.

Clinton’s running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, reportedly had a private dinner with Soros’ son Alexander recently. Alexander Soros is alleged to have unfettered access to high-profile Democrats.

In their coronation of Clinton, the Democratic Party maintained that the massive amounts of money being pumped into their candidate’s campaign wouldn’t affect her at all. The connection between Clinton, who has embraced SuperPACs and large donations from wealthy and corporate donors, and the influence these donations have provided them in the State Department are well documented. But if Clinton was prepared to let foreign billionaires influence US policy in return for 'donations' to The Clinton Foundation while Secretary of State what crimes is she likely to commit as president.

If elected president, Clinton will continue exchanging favors and access to her big-ticket donors, as she courts their interests over those of everyday Americans who vote in elections but could never afford to buy influence. Soros’ access to Clinton and the Democratic Party leadership is well documented, as are his interests and concerns receiving special consideration. Democracy has devolved into a system that works only for millionaires and billionaires with the money and desire to assert their own voices in government with big campaign contributions, simultaneously silencing the voice of every American voter.

Corporations Tried To Silence The People's Voice But A New Kind Of Democracy Has Emerged

by Ian R Thorpe

Too often over the past few decades, exercising one's right to vote in a democracy has meant having to choose the least politically repugnant candidate, the lesser of two evils, though in reality there was little difference between what was on offer from candidates of the 'right' and 'left'. After it had begun to sem that the voters had been cowed by scare stories and bribed by state benefits into a stupor of passivity, citizens and their representatives all across the country and throughot Europe and in North America and Australia are waking up and having learned the truth of the old adage "If voting changed anything they'd abolish it".

People are now voting with their feet, their wallets, shopping baskets and if nothing else is available with barricades and placards, taking direct action on major social and technology issues that impact their families and neighborhoods. Often, they are saying no to surveillance systems that rob them of privacy, technologies that will poison their water, agrigultural techniques that will destroy their land and biodiversity, and threaten the health of their children and communities, and social engineering policies that will obliterate their culture and wreak genocide on their nation.

A prime example of this overriding of democracy by the rent - seekers of the meritocracy as they court the favour of their corporate benefactors is the issue of genetically engineered (GE) crops and foods. More than 80% of GE crops are designed to withstand massive doses of toxic herbicide and still survive. This has meant the addition of hundreds of millions of pounds of these chemicals to our farmland and food crops.

Even as weeds develop resistance to multiple herbicides, corporations such as Monsanto and Dow have their cronies in government approving GE crops that will be doused with ever more hazardous herbicides in order to kill these resistant "superweeds." The nightmare scenario is clear: scientists predict that unless these GE crops are stopped, nearly a billion more pounds of 2,-4D (an element a of Agent Orange) or dicamba (a notoriously dangerous weed killer), will be sprayed over the land your food is gown on, to eventually filter down into the water supply from which residencies, hospitals, schools and busoness premises take their drinking water.

Luckily a series of effective campaigns by anti - corporatism activist movements are raising awareness of the threat and while national politics, faithful to the corporate masters, continues to push GM food crops with the lie that increased yields will feed the world, at local lever the greedy corporate control freaks are not being given such an easy ride. The European Commission, central administrative authority of the European Union is desperatly trying to force the acceptance of GM crops, but is being thwarted by member states and a widespread and passionate pulic opinion majority against scientific meddling with our food. In the USA things are moving too. Five counties in California, two counties in Oregon and three counties in Hawaii have placed bans, moratoriums or major restrictions on these crops and the inundation of toxic herbicides they bring with them. Some of these counties include farm communities aware that GE crops can contaminate their organic crops, or threaten export markets for their non-GE conventional crops.

Biotechnology companies have spent enormoust amounts of money opposing each of these laws, but with little success. Perhaps the most remarkable story took place in Hawaii in Maui County. Residents voted for a moratorium on all genetically engineered crops in spite of Big Biotech (led by Monsanto - check out their track record on matters of business ethics) mounting an $8 million dollar media campaign against them. Big Biotech spent more than $350 per vote they won, an amount believed to be the most ever spent per vote in a U.S. election, and they still lost!

These democratic actions are not just happening at the county level. The States of Vermont, Connecticut and Maine have also passed laws requiring labeling of genetically engineered foods. Bills for labeling having been introduced in over two dozen other states.

We have seen the same kind of expansion of democracy where communities are rejecting the destructive and controversial technology of hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking, particularly here in the UK. This technology is an environmental nightmare and a brutal ordeal for residents living near these sites, it destroys property values and trashes the environment. Fracking results not only in the massive overuse of water resources but also contamination of them with a plethora of dangerous chemicals, many of them carcinogenic. It also causes wide-ranging air pollution, including potential exposure to benzene and methanol. Fracking’s dangerous toxic waste can even be radioactive. On top of all that the volumes of natural gas that are released by fracking are vastly overstated.

Citizens in Shropshire, Lancashire, Sussex and around the nation are following the lead of american communities threatened by fracking, looking at the many ecological and human health impacts of fracking and, often using ancient laws and charters that are still in effect, are voting down fracking proposals.

We should not have to fight corporate piracy in this way however, politicians, in Britain, European Union member states, USA, Canada Australia and everywhere that claims to be a democracy, are elected to protect the interests of the people they represent, not the corporate pirates whose only interest is in plundering our counties.

Politician Blasts Conviction For Speaking The Truth On Anti-Semitism In Europe

by Egbert Nobakon

A Danish politician has been reprimanded for posting comments on Twitter about the-much-commented-on-in-mainstream-media resurgence of anti semitism in Europe. Apparently while hand wringing and breast beating about violent attacks on Jewish people and vandalising premises of Jewish owned businesses is fine, stating the absolutely effing obvious by linking the Europe migrant crisis to this new wave of anti Semitism is a criminal offence receiving a fine from the high court for pointing out Muslim anti-Semitism.

Veteran Danish People’s Party (Dansk Folkpartei, DF) politician and retired parliamentarian Mogens Camre tweeted in 2014 “Regarding the Jews’ situation in Europe: The Muslims are continuing where Hitler left off. Only the same treatment Hitler received will change the situation… forces in the Islamic world who threaten non-Muslims should be fought like Saddam Hussein, Bin Laden and Gadaffi were”. Camre's tweets were prompted by the comments of the Israeli ambassador to Berlin that year, who compared the persecution of Jews by Muslims in Europe to the situation in 1938.

The case was initially tried before Denmark's lower court but after it found against him, Mr. Camre took it to the high court, which on Monday ruled his remarks were against Danish racism laws and enforced the £800 fine. Speaking immediately after hearing the judgement, Camre said the 1939 law he was convicted under had been twisted by political correctness and should be abolished.

He also said the right of every 'man on the street' to express an opinion on many important matters was being deliberately targeted.

Mr. Camre also explained events leading up to his conviction:

“After this tweet a few days later a Palestinian fellow was released from jail. He had got a jail sentence of six years – and six years in Denmark really means it was a serious crime. He had committed narcotic and violent offences, and the verdict was after his release he should be extradited from Denmark.

“But then the wonderful declaration on human rights came in. And so because of his human rights he could not be sent home.

“This man wrote a letter to the police saying he felt threatened by me. I have no army, and no soldiers but he felt threatened! That caused the prosecutor to file a complaint against me”.

"In reality case was about more than just the hurt feelings of one Palestinian political activist," remarked Mr. Camre. He said: "The purpose of this verdict is to shut the mouth of everyone who would offend against our new wonderful imported culture from the Middle East.

“If you express yourself in academic language, and you report the facts of the situation in Europe nobody can do anything against it. But if you speak in a common language that any man in the street can understand, then there is a feeling there should be a reaction, that it would cause hatred between ordinary people and the muslim immigrants.

The law Mr. Camre has been persecuted under was passed after the Second World War Nazi occupation as does his family fight against "oppression, wherever it comes from". With some pride Mr. Camre describes how his father fought against the Nazis in the Danish resistance, and it is clear he feels he is doing the same good work by opposing the Muslims who are oppressing Jews.

Unfortunately we people of Europe have allowed spineless, shit - sucking Marxist creeps to infiltrate our political, public service and judicial elites. and they are quite happy to kiss Muslim arse by pandering to Islamic racism while punishing anybody who makes perfectly reasonable criticism of the anti - social behaviour so common among Muslims.

Re-Branding Dissent - The Quiet Destruction Of Democracy

by Egbert Nobred, 2 January, 2015

Many people, all the contributors to this publication among them, fear that democracy is being destroyed. OK, OK, hipsters will say but ‘we’ve never had democracy’, or, ‘it was destroyed long ago’, but left wing deceit aside, I think its worth actually thinking about how, many forms of democratic expression, effective dissent and peaceful self-determination are being outlawed and abolished in a sustained attack on free speech and civil rights.

In an article titled “The Next Crisis” the author argues that The Controllers, The Global Elite, call them what you will, have decided that Democracy is a threat to their wealth and power and have more than likely given some thought to how best to neuter it while appearing to do no such thing. It is expedient to retain the outward appearance of democracy in order to avoid frightening the frail of spirit, but there is a move to eradicate any substance from it, leaving us with an empty but colourful stage show.

The idea of a meritocratic global governance is about a hundred years old now, when first floated it was unworkable but now internet technologies offer government the ability to control information and thus manipulate opinion so that enough people can be persuaded to surrender their individual rights and liberties in return for protection from 'existential threats' that in reality, if dealth with properly, pose no greater danger to human life than a smelly fart.

And yet the elites keep pushing the idea that we are threatened by global warming, Islamic extremism, food and water shortages and a host of other problems from which only Big Government can save us. For example

3) professionalized Governance. Democracy can be and must be neutered, and an effective way of doing this is to insist that amateur, elected officials MUST take the advice of professional (read corporate) advisors. Expand current law to enforce this.

If this seems monstrous now, their argument, I suspect, will be that in an increasingly crowded, interconnected and globalised world we can no longer leave critically important decisions in the hands of the uneducated, in-expert and amateur. We must, of course, still be free to choose but must, from now on, be helped to choose ‘wisely’. And how can we choose wisely if we aren’t given wise choices to choose from? Oh, the Orwellian beauty of it! No prizes for guessing who will decide what is and what is not wise.

We cannot any longer allow you to choose unwisely! There is so much at stake and so much you and your representatives simply do not fully understand.

You only need think how much legislation is already written by these ‘advisors’ and how many ‘experts’ are routinely seconded from corporations in order to ‘help’ the government departments regulate those same corporations to appreciate how far towards this we have already come. Two examples of ‘expert advice’ spring readily to mind. Back in May 2014 Citi drafted, word for word, many of the ‘amendments’ to the Frank Dodd financial regulation law. While professional experts from J PM Morgan did the same for the new derivatives trading law which puts the US tax payer back on the hook for any really serious losses. In an essay

Postal Voting Has Given Us Third World Politics

by Paul Nuttall, UKIP Deputy Leader, ?Breitbart London, 6 December 2015

Politics can be a rough old game. The highs are high and the low can be very low. We’ve had some fantastic highs in UKIP over the past three years, such as the local elections in 2013, winning the European Elections in 2014 and then going on to win a number of by elections. As for the lows, it hit rock bottom for me in the early hours of Friday morning in Oldham. For the first time I actually questioned whether I wanted to stay involved in politics. This wasn’t because I was depressed about the UKIP result and victory for Labour’s Jim McMahon (pictured above with Jeremy Corbyn), as I actually predicted that we would get around 25 per cent and finish second at the start of the campaign. It was because I witnessed an absolute affront to British democratic traditions. At the count on Thursday night, I had UKIP counters coming up to me literally in a state of disbelief after witnessing box after box come out almost exclusively for one party – the Labour Party. Some boxes were literally over 95 per cent Labour. The local Conservatives who we were chatting to were a frustrated bunch and have complained before about the situation, but equally they are resigned to the fact that “this is how it works here.” A local Lib Dem by election organiser, who I have known on the by election circuit now for over five years, also said to me: “Well what do you expect Paul? It’s Labour and it’s Oldham.” Personally I felt physically sick and actually did a couple of interviews where I think I was still in a state of shock. After a few good sleeps and a lot of reflection, I no longer feel depressed about what happened, I feel angry. Angry that democracy in our great country could have stooped so low. Angry that we allow this kind of manipulation and don’t kick up more of a fuss. Angry that an alien form of politics has been allowed to highjack our political system and angry that the politicians at Westminster on the red side condone this and the blue seem to turn a blind eye.

"Big Brother State": FBI Says Citizens Should Have No Secrets That The Government Can't Access

The tyrannous surveillance state predicted in George Orwell's dystopian novel "1984" (cover illustration on first edition: A military boot treading on a human face) has gradually crept up on us. With no sense of irony whatsoever the government of the nation that calls itself "The land of the free" has led the way in trying to persade citizents that the only way they can be sasfe from vague and largely fictitious "existential threats to democracy" is to surrender our civil rights and freedom to determine our own destiny, so that the elite can protect us from external threats identical to the ones posed by the local buraucratic dictatorships that are emerging.

Like the p roverbial frog sitting in a pan of water that is poised over a fire, too many people in the developed world seem unaware that the slow boil of totalitarianism is killing their personal freedoms and civil liberties.

The latest sign of this move from representative democracy to Fascism by stealth was revealed in the US Senate by FBI Director James Comey, who expressed the agencies objections to the use of encryption by private individuals in order to protect personal information the government has no automatic right to obtain. Similar moves are afoot in the European Union, the UK and the few other places around the globe where civil rights are enshrined in constitutional law rather than at the discretion of the of the uniformed goon who is pointing a gun at you.

As reported by The New American, Comey testified that he believes the government’s surveillance and law enforcement departments should have unrestricted access to all electronic information Americans may store or send in electronic format: On computer storage devices, smart phones, in the i-clouds spinging up everywhere that sane people should avoid even for storing e-books, in emails and in text messages and all for our own safety and protection of course. Like most people in governmet, Comey believes national security outweighs constitutional rights or due process, even though he cannot name one credible threat to national security. But the feels anyone objecting to his total surveillance dreams should be identified as an enemy of the state. After all, aren’t criminals the only ones who really have anything to hide?

In testimony given at a session of the Senate Judiciary Committee titled “Going Dark: Encryption, Technology, and the Balance Between Public Safety and Privacy” Comey stated that for security agencies to stay one step ahead of international terror organisations, as well as organised crime and cybercrime, the US government's various spy and law enforcement agencies should have the ability to deploy technology used to de-encrypt protected data backed by law. Also, he believes the government (i.e. his agency) should be have the power to decide when decryption is necessary.

What could go wrong there? Especially in a country that could twice elect Emperor The God King Obama as its leader. Or for that matter, twice elect his equally sociopathic predecessor? Because Washinton's police state ambitions are not new. Bush Lets U.S. Spy on Callers Without Courts

Ignorance Is Strength: European Parliament Read to clamp Down On Free Speech
The EU is blatantly pro American, supportive of moves towards global government and opposed to democracy, except for the kind of democratic assembly that merely rubber stamps bureaucrats' decisions. Moreover, the EU has well documented designs towards extending 'Europe' into the middle east and north Africa, which makes an insane kind of sense of Hausfrau - Volksfuhrer Merkel's determination to flood Europe with illegal immigrants from those regions.

The Nuttiness Of NeoCon Destabilization Campaigns.
As the instability in the middle east spreads to Europe, North Africa and into Sourthern Asia we look as the role of the so - called neocons, piratical, mostly American corporate, world domination freaks who naively see the collapse of nations and the global economic structure as somehow working to their advantage. Ironically the neocons are aided and abetted by the neo-liberals, theoretically their rivals although the groups share the same broad aims.

Unelected Bureaucrats Are Signing Away Our Civil Rights In Secret TTIP Negotiations

by Ian R Thorpe

For some years now I and my libertarian friends in the blogosphere have been warning that democracy in the west is under threat, elected governments having been infiltrated by lobbyists working for a corporate elite. These lobbyists, who have no official status but plenty of money available for 'hospitality' (graft, payola, slush, bribery, incentivizing, call it what you will.) to help them enlist the support of corrupt officials – mainly politicians and civil servants mot more and more often these days, prominent scientists, 'special advisers' and former politicians who are happy to sell their reputation.

Lobbying, defined as the business of attempting to influence the decision making process by approaching officials in the government or business, (most often legislators or members of regulatory agencies) and putting information in front of them that is intended to emphasise a particular side of a debate. In the past few decades lobbying has become an industry with single issue political groups, charities, professional associations and organized groups, or at times individuals pushing a cause increasingly being replaced by highly professional businesses which use marketing techniques aimed as wide audiences or individuals, corporations.

This article is not concerned with the single issue groups, church groups and charities still involved in lobbying, that is a perfectly acceptable type of campaigning. It is the commercial lobbyists hired for eye watering amounts of money by large and powerful corporations that have been responsible for corrupting the democratic process. Professional lobbyists are people whose business is attempting to influence lawmakers or regulators in order to deliver decisions beneficial to their clients.

Governments often define and regulate organized group lobbying to prevent it becoming too influential. Unfortunately professional lobbyists are quite skilled at flying under the radar. An elected representative or employed official may find him / herself getting into a conversation at an official reception, and end up being invited to a party where all sorts of goodies are available with the promise of more to come if they will only spare a little time to listen to or read the very plausible information the organisers (whose motives are purely altruistic of course) will be putting to the government or committee.

The ethics and morality of lobbying are questionable. Although it is not always the case that people with inordinate socioeconomic power are corrupting the law in order to serve their own interests, it has to be the case that lobbying will present the view of an unrepresentative group. When people who have sworn to act on behalf of others, and to view evidence impartially, such as people elected to serve their constituents' interests, stand to benefit by shaping the law to serve the interests of some private parties a conflict of interest exists.

The failure of officers and elected representatives to serve the public interest as a result of lobbying by commercial interests who provide benefits to the official is an example of the corruption of democracy.

Now, in 2015, we are seeing the culmination of this power grab by global corporations in the form of the TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Partnership — or TTIP agreement.

Politicians and the corporate and academic elite all know that TTIP is bad for citizens of each participating country, bad for individual freedom and very likely fatal for representative democracy. This is why the negotiations for TTIP (Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) and its equally evil twin TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) have been carried out in strictest secrecy. Will 2015 be the year we sign away the right to protect our environment, set the prices of medication and defend workers from exploitation? That’s what trade negotiators preparing to meet in Brussels early next week could agree to.

This week, chief negotiators from the countries in the TTIP, members of the EU on one side and the US Government on the other, are expected to meet to agree the massive trade deal that will in effect hand control of consumer protection regulations, worker's rights and business law to global corporations. If they succeed, it could spell disaster for our environment, internet freedoms and healthcare. The negotiators are counting on keeping a low profile to get the deal through and a similar deal between the US and Pacific Rim nations is being derailed because of public pressure.

The American Government, the Corporate representatives (yes, lobbyists have been involved in drafting this legally binding treaty which will swell their clients profits) and official of supra national bureaucracies such as The United Nations are trying desperately to keep information relating to the TTIP negotiations out of mainstream media.

The last thing they want is for the public, already in a rebellious, anti - establishment mood, to know what is being planned by our New Unhappy Lords, but what has so far been leaked (browse the menu for this document, we have followed it for almost two years) is extremely concerning. New media news sites cannot hope to compete with the corporate owned mainstream media or the budgets allocated by governments and corporate PR departments to professional lobbyists and public relations consultants pushing this deal. But we are many, they are few; hundreds of thousands of bloggers, social media users and people willing to join the campaign to stop TTIP, individualists prepared to vote for and publicly support new political parties which support individualism and national sovereignty and who recognise that globalism it just fascism, Orwellian Oligarchical Collectivism in the guise of caring, sharing, Kumbaya-singing, sentimentalist mooeyness.

Join us, or follow the sheeple to slavery.

How do we go about saving democracy - part 1?

When we talk about democracy, because of the innate conservatism of the 'progressives' who diminate higher education, the discussion gets stuck on the Greeks. Modern democracy hoever has little to do with Pericles, Cleisthenes, Aristotle and company. The city states of ancient Greece made colossal strides in achieving rule by the people but we should not forget theirs was a slave economy and that the democratic governments ruled over small territories and populations only a fraction of what are found in modern nation states. Athens was by far the largest with an estimated population of two hundred thousand (half of which were probably slaves) but other cities such as Corinth and Thebes were much smaller.

With such small populations and only freeborn males being full citizens, direct democracy was not unreasistic. Additionally the city states were culturally homogenous so rule by plebiscite with every citizen being able to vote on all decisions did not present many logistical challenges. Our democracy is representative not direct, the product of national, not city, identity, as it was then. With millions of opinions to canvass and votes to count, direct democracy would be almost impossible, even if the average citizen could be well informed enough to vote on complex matters of international relations and such.

Modern democracy began, according to most schlars of political history, with the creation of the Westphalian System in 1648, which marked the end of the Thirty Years War, a conflict between the Catholic and Protestant states which emerges as The Holy Roman Empire, which dominated a vast tract of central Europe, disintegrated in a similar way to the break up of the Soviet Union in the late twentieth century.

The settlement set out for the first time the principles of national sovereignty totally independent from the Roman Catholic Church (which had effectively been the successor of the Roman Empire) and gave bith to a European of separate and sovereign nation states.

Tribes, clans and religious communties gave way to nations of people who thought themselves bound together not by blood or faith but by various cultural ties, principally language and history, tradition, economic interests. The next step naturally became one of organising their own government - not taking orders from a despotic ruler who in most cases was a client of an even more despotic Pontifex Maximus (the Emperor and High Priest of the Roman Sol Invictus cult (sic).

Rule by majority vote was still a long way off, in fact it was not until the socialistic thinking of religious reformers like The Moravians and The Wesleyans that drove so much of the democratisation of the 19th Century genuinely assumed that rule by the people would inevitably deliver a fair and equitable society.

The representative democracy we have today emerged out of a succession of grand battles in the 19th Century between competing interests, Marxists and Methodists, Capitalists versus Labour, free trade liberalism versus protectionist Conservatives.

Following World War One, the idea of government of the people by (the elected representatives of) the people had grown into a monster, a new meritocratic elite who were as fanatically engaged in preserving the status quo as the old aristocracies they replaced had once been.

The problems we see in democracy today flow out of the imperfections in the way the system has evolved.

First, there is the implausibility of the idea of a homogenous national identity in a nation state with a population of many millions, without any minority group feeling marginalised or excluded. Hitler and Stalin exposed this flaw in nation sates' representative democracy in a way that even his total defeat could not eradicate. Naziism showed how enough of the general populace could be inspired by the idea that they were all one people or "Volk" whose identity was threatened by minorities.

Adolf Hitler Hitler exposed the weaknesses of nation states. It took some years for the chaos that followed the second World War to settle before the social revolution of the 1960s set about the final demolition of the class system and the building of inclusive societies in which tolerance of diverse religions and lifestyles was the norm. Unfortunately this new tolerance was hijacked by a way of thinking which represented a new moral authoritarianism. These people styled themselves 'the left' but their narrow mindedness and quest for ideological purity gave them more in common with the Jesuits of the Inquisition than the 'anything goes' attitudes of ninteenth and early twentieth century Bohemianism.

And a fundamental pillar of their philosophy was that the old European culture which many refer to as Judeo Christian or sometimed Graeco - Roman but which is really a Celtic - Germanic culture (as already mentioned Greek city states were slave economies. Rome was an extremely brutal society whose emblem was the Fasces from which the word Fascist is derived. And while much of the bible may be based on the liturgy of the Jewish relion, culturally there is little Jewish influence.

A major part of the new, authoritarian elite's narrative is that the old western nations need mass immigration from the heavily populated, massively impoverished nations of the third world. The knowledge that we are importing ideas like honour killings, forced marriages, female genital mutilation and a culture that believe it is acceptable to gang rape young women who wear revealing clothes or go out without a male escort does not strike the left as being somewhat contradictory to their claim that immigration culturally enriches our societies.

The Day the Earth Died - And Why The Green Lobby Did Not Raise A Whimper In Protest

Led by the United States of America, that beacon of liberty, according to the former rent-boy who is its current president "a wellspring of human rights", the world is sliding inexorably towards a global, totalitarian government. As the people (including the aforementioned former rent boy)make increasingly hysterical speeches about protecting the environment, the elected representatives of the American people have just surrendered their responsibility for protecting the interests of voters to corporate pirates.History may well identify the day on which democracy died as 23 June 2015.

That’s the day when the U.S. Senate, which had previously turned down an unconstitutional law called “Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority,” that allows U.S. President Obama to push through his corporate friendly ‘trade’ treaties without a vote or even a full debate in congress. Previously the US Constitution required a two-thirds majority of Senators to approve any treaties that impacted on constitutional law. "Fast Track" thus enormously increases the likelihood of passing any of Obama’s democracy - murdering ‘trade’ treaties, from 0%, to 100%.

By selling their votes in return for pledges of government spending in their states the current crop of US Senators have effectively transformed their nation from a representative democracy to a dictatorship in which the President can make law on a whim.

Read how Obama's trade treaties will trasfer sovereignty from government to corporate businesses, destroy western economies and increase third world poverty while enriching the rich and powerful:

Each of these ‘trade’ deals, TTIP, TPP, TESA and a few others is not so much about international commerce as establishing a system of global governance. They are about sovereignty — who rules? The unelected bureaucrats who lead the European Union have already established beyond doubt their contempt for democracy and the will of the people and there are few nations in Africa, Asia and South America that could be called democratic, even in a tongue in cheek way.

Each one of Obama's 'free trade' treaties contains clauses that empower international corporations to sue any nation party to the treaty, which tries to pass any regulation, including any environmental regulation, that is stricter than what is set in stone forever in the given ‘trade’ deal. Instead of sovereign nations, the member-states of these ‘trade’ associations will become subjects of international corporate dictatorship.

Defenders of Obama's bid to make himself the global Emperor will say the global corporations will not be empowered to change any law within any one of the member-nations; that is true. But they will be able to sue if any new law increasing their national standards so as to accommodate new scientific findings, or even merely in order to change financial regulations so as to prevent crashes such as in 1929 and 2008 is deemed to be likely to have an adverse effect on corporate ability to profit.

In summary these ‘trade’ deals will not directly block any increase in the regulations of food-safety, the environment, drug-safety, worker-safety, workers’ wages, medical care, education, or any of the many other things that governments must regulate in order for the public to be protected from corporate privacy. Instead, the corporations will be able to seek compensation in a special court consisting of corporate lawyers, for revenue lost due to comsumer and worker protection laws.

In other words: What the U.S. Senate did on 23 June 2015 was to hand America’s sovereignty over to international corporations. It gave President Obama what he had been seeking with unprecedented intensity, and which he has called his "legacy": it’s the power to transfer lots of America’s democratic national sovereignty over to international corporations — that is, to the roughly 100 individuals on this planet who own the controlling blocks of stock in the world’s large international corporations, the people who are the real beneficiaries in all of this.

The Daily Stirrer said back in 2008 this man was a nastier neo-liberal than Bush 1 & 2, Clinton or Reagan. Now do you believe us?

German Anti-Islamisation Marches: What the Mainstream Media Doesn’t Want You to Know

by Ed Butt - 24 January, 2015

Last Wednesday night saw violence flare up at a PEGIDA anti - Islamification protest in Leipzig, Germany when, angered by the banning of a planned protest in Dresden and a police operation on a scale unknown in recent German history, the expected numbers of protestors was far in excess of what had been projected.

While previous demonstrations have been peaceful, the efforts by the German government, led by Chancellor Merkel who has defended her policy of flooding Germany's industrial cities with third world immigrants and dismissed the oncerns of PEGIDA supportes as racist and backward looking, and the alleged bussing in of a rent-a-mob crowd of left wing hoologans with instructions to to cause trouble, the city is deafened by political slogans played over loudspeakers, property is vandalised, and explosives are thrown at police in colossal running battles that involve thousands of people.

For people who rely for news on mainstream media, what is increasingly known in Germany as the ‘liar press’ (Luegenpresse), the narrative that the racist, anti Islam protestors have turned nasty might stick. And when the reports throw in salacious details about the former leader of this movement and his colourful past, or the tragic death of an immigrant man who was killed shortly after a demonstration in Dresden last week, the pro immigrant propaganda starts to look like the voice of reason.

There is no doubt the official reports are meant to leave you thinking the Germans actually taking pride in their country and defending its cultuere and traditions are the extremists. Then when a sensationalised story of a young immigrant, an Eritrean being murdered with no apparent motive very soon after the march, the gullible are invited to think it must be a racist attack.

This push to associate the anti - Islamification movement with right wing extremist and racist groups has been a major part of the German establishment’s haughty dismissal of the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA) group: that they are cold, angry racists with hatred in their hearts.

Only they're not.

The fact that many of the supporters appear to be middle class, grandparents, or young couples with school age children is of no relevance to the pro - immigration, pro - globalism propagandists. As one government minister condescendingly remarked, they are merely “Pinstripe Nazis”. It is of no relevance as far as the pro - Islamification, pro-Federal Europe propagandists that, as was revealed on Wednesday (Jan 22), the 20-year old Eritrean Khaled Idris Bahray was actually killed by his flat mate, rather than a band of marauding racists. It is unimportant that there are no gangs of racusts, the PEGIDA supporters are politically engaged Germans protesting against government policy.

The killing of the young Eritrean was reported in sensationalist tones by the British media. The Guardian claimed it “exposes racial tensions in Germany” and “anti-immigration sentiment”. Vice News said “Germany’s recent upsurge in anti-Islam sentiment appears to have taken a dark new turn”, and reported the flat mate’s fabricated version of events as fact.

Maybe it is because German police have now recovered the murder weapon, that Khaled’s former flat-mate, a fellow Eritrean has confessed to the crime (another case of black on black violence that will somehow be blamed on 'white racism'), and “significant” amounts of drugs are allegedly involved, that the story has been dropped like a hot stone by the mainstream media. Two days after the confession, and you’d hardly know from the mainstream British press: clearly catering to the self hatred of middle class guilt addicts is more important that honest reporting of the facts in 21st centuryu Europe.

Typically of a left wing news sheet and without any sense of irony the same news sheet was almost orgasmic in their anticipation of victory for the Greek left wing extremists Syriza, an anti immigrant, anti - austerity party.

The mob mentality of the left gives them a delicious lack of self awareness.

In the same way, reporting of the sporadic violence at the Leipzig demonstration gives the impression PEGIDA supporters were responsible. The case is PEGIDA weren’t the ones throwing bottles and fireworks at Wednesday’s demonstration, it was the tens of thousands of left-wing counter-protesters who would stop at nothing to prevent the PEGIDA march from going ahead. Their behavior was a carbon copy of attempts by Britain's Anti Nazi League and Unite Against Fascism to break up protests by the English Defence League (EDL) and other anti immigration groups.

Appraised of the fact that train-loads of PEGIDA supporters would be coming from Dresden, the home of the movement where they had their own march banned by police, the Anti Fascist fascists and Anti - Nazi nazis and the rest of the rent-a-mob crowd's first action was to try to prevent their arrival of peaceful protesors by setting fire to the railway between the two cities.

The details of what happened during the protest are not clear, government propagandists had tried scaremongering tactics by forcasting a crown of 100,000 would reduce Leipzig to chaos and then claimed a great vitory for Hausfrau Merkel's government when only an estimated 40,000 turned out. Far more important however is that demonstrations across Germany were organised in support of PEGIDA, which shows that anti - government feeling is widespread whereever government policy is anti - European.

The American Political System Is "Not A Democracy Or Constitutional Republic" - Thiel

The state of democracy in the USA has become a hot topic of conversation in American business circles in recent years. While President Barack Hussein Obama, not so much a man as an ego on long skinny legs, has increasingly been inclined to rule by executive order in the manner of a despot or tyrant, even Obama's fiercest critics have to admit the American electoral system seems increasingly capable of delivering only political paralysis. (In order to prevent readers thinking this is going to be an anti - American polemic, it's fair to say now that Britain, France and most European counties are in a similar state.)

Many commentators complain that the USA is no longer a democracy nor a constitutional republic. One of the most powerful representations of this unfortunate fact came from an academic study highlighted last year: New Report from Princeton and Northwestern Proves It: The U.S. is an Oligarchy.

A couple of days ago, Silicon Valley venture capitalist and Hedge Fund manager Peter Thiel talked to Tyler Cower at George Mason University’s Mercatus center. The Washington Post picked up on some of his thoughts regarding the American political system, which provide food for thought.

While Thiel identifies the U.S.A. as neither a democracy or a constitutional republic, he goes on to state that the U.S. system is one in which the power is increasingly concentrated in undemocratic, “technocratic” agencies. The same has happened in Britain of course, where we have even coined a derogatory name for these power farms to which responsibility for government tasks is being farmed out. He fails to hit a scoring shot however by omitting to ask what interests are driving decisions made by the unelected bureaucrats who run these undemocratic entities. Given the revolving door between corporate Business and Government these days, an unbiased observer must be aware that the corporate oligarchs are driving the oligarchy, as opposed to independent thinking bureaucratic technocrats driving a technocracy.

This has been a regular theme of Daily Stirrer articles. Naturally, a former Exxon, Goldman Sachs or Monsanto executive now running a QUANGO (Quasi Autonomous Non-governmental Organization) might not admit to recognizing this.

Fortunately, the writer of the Washington Post article picked up on his oversight. Here is an excerpt:

Democracy in America is dead, according to Silicon Valley investor Peter Thiel.

"It’s not clear we’re living in anything resembling a democracy,” he told a crowd Tuesday at George Mason University. “We’re living in a republic that’s modified by a judicial system, that’s been largely superseded by these agencies that drive the decision-making."

"Calling our society a democracy is very misleading,” Thiel went on. “We’re not a republic; we’re not a constitutional republic. We live in a state that’s dominated by these technocratic agencies."

Thiel says that organizations like the Federal Reserve have been allowed to roam too far. Calling government agencies “deeply sclerotic and deeply nonfunctioning,” Thiel pointed to the Energy Department’s failed investments in Solyndra as a case study in bureaucratic mismanagement and executive overreach.

Quantitative Easing, the response of western governments to the financial crisis on 2008 is a great example. Having reduced interest rates to just above zero%, governments then began a programme of selling bonds to inject cash into beleaguered economies. The bonds being sold carried a 'coupon value' (fixed interests rate, 3.1% for the USA, 3.5% for UK and varying figures according to the financial stability of the issuing economy. So why do visible signs of economic improvement seem so spectral? Well this is really comical: all developed world economies (except Germany) run a systemic deficit and have to borrow money to fund their obligations which include pensions, welfare benefits and so on. The oligarchs, who extract far more from society than they give back, quickly saw an opportunity, if governments were lending money at half-a-percent and borrowing at three-and-a-half per cent, why not borrow from government and then lend the money straight back by purchasing bonds.

To per cent profit margin may not seem much but believe me, in the world of high finance, where profit margin on transactions is usually a fraction of a percentage point, two per cent is a nice earner. Do the calculations and you'll see that a half per cent of $£€1billion is a decent days wages.

Of course the executives of the bank of England, The US Federal Reserve, the German bundesbank, the ECB, IMF, BIS etc. are all former senior executives of major commercial banks. The same situation exists in every major industry and the bodies that oversee or regulate them. Elected assemblies are just places where time servers who depend on donations from oligarchs to fund their election campaigns, are reduced to the function of rubber stamping regulations formulated by former (and future corporate executives for the benefit of the corporate cartels they have links with.

We living in a corporate oligarchy, disguised as a bureaucratic meritocracy. It is run by and for the rich and powerful merely using government and international agencies as tools of control. Do not vote for the traditional parties of government, do not be fooled by the dupes who scream that startup parties are extremist because there is nothing extremist about wanting a return to democratic government (i.e. the will of the people) as against living under totalitarian oligarchies.

BBC Democracy Day: Europe 'faces political earthquakes'

Ian R Thorpe, 23 January, 2015

After the political asteroid hit that saw anti - EU parties make enormous advances throughout the European Union in 2014's European Parliament election and with several large EU nation facing elections in 2015 and 2016, mainstream media are warning that political earthquakes could be in store for Europe. Reesearch by the Economist Intelligence Unit for the BBC's Democracy Day find that anti - EU feeling focuses on two issues, the flooding of European nations with third world immigrants by the ruling elites and the ongoing assault on national sovereignty and culture by the unelected bureaucrats of Brussels.

The report says the rising appeal of populist parties could see some winning elections and mainstream parties forced into previously unthinkable alliances. Europe's "crisis of democracy" is a gap between elites and voters, EIU says, adding "there is a gaping hole at the heart of European politics where big ideas should be".

Low turnouts at the polls and sharp falls in the membership of traditional parties are among the key factors in the surge of anti EU and anti - globalist parties.

The United Kingdom, which has a General Election in early May, is "on the cusp of a potentially prolonged period of political instability", according to political analysts.

They say there is a much higher than usual chance that the election will produce an unstable government - predicting that the populist UK Independence Party (UKIP) will take votes from both the Conservatives and Labour, with the Liberal Democrats losing votes and seats across the spectrum to open the way for a minority government propped up by several minor parties each with only a handful of seats.

This fragmentation of what was until 2005 a solid two - party parliament combined with Britain's first-past-the-post electoral system will, the EIU says, make it increasingly difficult to form the kind of single-party governments with a parliamentary majority that have been the norm.

The most immediate political challenge and the first test of how far the growing anti - European sentiment translates into success at the polls will be in Greece. A snap general election takes place there on 25 January. Opinion polls suggest that the far left, anti - EU party Syriza could emerge as the strongest party. If it did and was able to form a government, the Economist research predicts this would act as a catalyst for political upheaval elsewhere. Britain's election in May could throw up even bigger surprises, with Hungary and Denmark joining the UK in the race for the exit.

"The election of a Syriza government would be highly destabilising, both domestically and regionally. It would almost certainly trigger a crisis in the relationship between Greece and its international creditors, as debt write-offs form one of the core planks of its policy platform," the EIU says.

"With similar anti-establishment parties gaining ground rapidly in a number of other countries scheduled to hold elections in 2015, the spill-over effects from a further period of Greek turmoil could be significant." 'Immigration and austerity'

Other examples of European elections with potential for unpredictable results cited by EIU include polls in Denmark, Finland, Spain, France, Sweden, Germany and Ireland.

"There is a common denominator in these countries: the rise of populist parties," the EIU says, "Anti-establishment sentiment has surged across the eurozone (and the larger EU) and the risk of political disruption and potential crises is high."

Opposition to governance from Brussels, immigration and austerity are key themes and rallying cries for many of these parties.

British Democracy In Terminal Decline - Voting Is Redundant And Civil Liberties Are So Last Year

by Ian R Thorpe

The Right To Peaceful Protest

A new study of the health of British democracy over the last decade may shock a few of those smug twats who insist there is nothing to worry about and people who complain about the erosion of civil rights are just conspiracy theorists. The report warns that our ancient democracy is in trouble (forget what you were taught in school, it is way older than The Magna Carta). "The British Democratic system is in long-term terminal decline as the power of corporations keeps growing, politicians become less representative of their constituencies and disillusioned citizens stop voting or even discussing current affairs" the report concludes.

This study undertaken over the past two years has been proven correct in context but has understated the level of decisions taken by David Cameron’s coalition government that have completely bypassed the democratic process. Add to that the number of new laws, regulations and policy initiatives imposed on us by the EU, over which even our elected parliament does not have any influence (the TTIP free trade treaty being a case in point) and it becomes clear that if we continue much further in the same direction, elected assemblies will be to government what Morris Dancing is to the music industry.

Public faith in democratic institutions is “decaying”, according to the report (some might say has decayed, I couldn't possibly comment), the gap in participation rates of different social classes or age groups in the electoral process is widening, and an "unprecedented” growth" in corporate power is noted. (We take this opportunity to remind you that TTIP (sic) will grant corporations the right to overturn laws made by sovereign governments that the money men do not like.)

It is hardly surprising then that the electorate are disconnecting with institutions they see as out of touch, ruled by self interest, elitist, unrepresentative and more concerned with fashionably politically correct causes that with the concerns of ordinary people who work hard to make a living. Many new concerns have also arisen in the past few years, including electoral fraud – one only has to look at the terrible handling by Westminster of Scottish Independence - the culture of cover up which has seen cases of the worst kind of crimes against vulnerable people go uninvestigated either because the establishment closed ranks to protect its own, or because to go after the perpetrators would raise "racially sensitive issues".

PEGIDA Rallies Take Place Across Germany Despite Terrorism Threat

by Ed Butt, 21 January, 2015

Over 500 Germans met last night to demonstrate their defiance of Husfrau Merkel's latest attempt at usurping the powrer of the German people by suppressing their right to protest, by asserting their democratic right in the nation’s capital, despite a the government banning the latst Pegida march in Dresden, using an obviously fabricated 'terrorist threat' to force organisers to cancel the march at the last moment.

The leadership of PEGIDA or Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West as it is more formally known, agreed to the cancellation and urged its members to stay at home, as the government of Saxony state ordered police put the city in virtual lockdown. Many police officers were bussed in from other cities and states to strengthen the SS presence in the streets of Dresden.

While anti - racism counter protesters in Berlin proved rather camera shy turning their backs when reporters and photographers, the PEGIDA crowd are proudly show off their home made banners and provide sound bites. Among German and local state flags, an Israeli flag carried by a man with a “Je Suis Charlie” sign stands prominently at the front of the PEGIDA 'stroll'.

Also represented among the anti - Islamification prostest was a group of Burschenshcaften, traditional German student fraternities established at the time of German unification in the 19th century and often associated with strong conservative politics. Their flags, red and black stripes with a sprig of oak attracted considerable attention from both the organisers and the police, who were working together to ensure there was no infiltration by Germany’s small remaining Fascist groups, who had been told specifically to stay away.

Faith Schools Could Face Closure if They Don't Promote Gay Rights

by Arthur Foxake, 2 november 2014

This is not how we were promised it would be. Those of us who were subjected to the left's hate attacks and accusations of 'homophobia' (fear of the same thing) when we warned as the same sex marriage legislation was being forced on the nation that the heterophobic Gay Nazis would not stop there, they would not be happy until straight relationships had been marginalised.

New regulations on the promotion of same sex relationships in schools are about to be implemented. British faith schools will be compelled to teach equality and respect for gay rights with the threat of closure hanging over those that do not comply. The move is backed by Coalition government Education Secretary Nicky Morgan and comes in the wake of 40 snap inspections of faith schools, including Christian and Jewish schools, in the wake of the Trojan Horse plot in Birmingham in which radical Islamists were found to have infiltrated between four and eight schools to promote hard-line Salafist Islam.

A report summarising the findings of these inspections is due later this month. Sir Michael Wilshaw, chief inspector of schools, is expected to announce that any school not queering preparing students for life in gay Britain, by which he means embracing alternative lifestyles and other cultures, will be subject to no-notice inspections, downgrades, and even possible closures. So actually we may surmise that Wilshaw has already made up his mind about what he will impose on schools and only needs to cherry pick the inspections data for evidence to justify his authoritarian measures.

Schools will also face penalties if they are deemed to be in breach of Paedophile Loving Hattie Harperson's Equalities Act, which mandates respect for gay and transgender people, and of other religions and races, despite the Act containing an exemption for school curricula. With teachers and the education department obsessing over this kind of politically correct nonsense is it any wonder children are leaving unable to attain elementary levels of reading and arithmetic?

Morgan told the Sunday Times, "It is “crucial” that Jewish and Christian schools “actively promote” British values, including tolerance for other lifestyles and cultures. “These values — democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs — are not new. The requirement to ‘actively promote’ them is designed to reinforce the importance this government attaches to these values,” she said.

Hang on, what has the promotion of homosexuality to do with British values. We should tolerate, but tolerance is not the same as promoting and celebrating. And we notice there is a lot of talk about what Christian and Jewish schools must do, but little about imposing new attitudes on Muslim schools even though the politically correct panic was started by complaints about Islamic fundamentalists having infiltrated state schools in some areas and teaching a very extreme interpretation of The Koran, including calling for the brutal murder of homosexuals.

Ofsted inspectors have come under fire in recent weeks for their overzealous efforts to root out any deviation from the politically correct standards of cultural Marxism, including asking inappropriate questions during their snap inspections designed to probe whether pupils held tolerant views towards gays and members of other religions.

“They made us feel threatened about our religion. They asked ‘Do you have friends from other religions?’ They asked this many times until we answered what they wanted us to say,” one year eleven pupil at a Jewish orthodox school has reported.

Poor kid was lucky not to be dragged off and handed over to members of the Elm House Elitist Kiddie Fiddlers Club for reeducation. Another pupil at the same school, a girl in year nine, said she was made to feel “uncomfortable and upset” after inspectors told her that a “woman might choose to live with another woman and a man could choose to live with a man, it’s up to them”. Well yes, it certainly is, it is not up to the creeps and perverts who work as schoolteachers and civil servants in the Education department and see their function as to sexualise children.

Fears that the new guidelines will be aimed not at Islamic extremism but used as an excuse to stifle religious freedom in Christian (Protestant and Catholic) and Jewish schools appear to have been well-founded. St Benedict's Roman Catholic school in Suffolk which achieved A level results in the top 1 percent nationally, has been told that it is not doing enough to conform to British values by by not doing enough to tackle radicalisation.

Forgive us if we seem old fashioned possums, but most of us at The Daily Stirrer have brought up families and in our shared extremism the more schools promote homosexuality singing the praises of turd burglars and rug munchers to tackle radicalisation, the more pupils are likely to turn to extreme alternatives to the mooey, mealy - mouthed equivocating of politically correct culture.

In another example, Trinity Christian School in Reading was recently told by inspectors that it did not meet the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of its young pupils. Yet just one year ago, before the new regulations came in, it was rated ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ for the ‘spiritual, moral, social and cultural development’ requirement, with last year’s report attesting that pupils were “well prepared for life in modern, multicultural, democratic British society through the teaching of the Christian principle to ‘love thy neighbour”.

Speaking to the Sunday Times, Morgan said “Schools should broaden horizons not close minds . . . and should encourage pupils to respect other people even if they do not agree with them. Unfortuntely Morgan loses all credibility here because there is no group more intolerant and more bigoted that the politically correct left unless it is the Gay Nazis. They absolutely refuse to tolerate any view that differs from their own.

Simon Calvert, of the Christian Institute said “Christian schools like Trinity have a reputation for high standards and well-rounded pupils and they should have the freedom to continue doing what they’ve always done.

“Parents clearly want such schools to thrive, and the Department for Education should too.

“At the beginning of the summer we warned that if the Government brought in these regulations then they would be enforcing political correctness in schools. We also said there would be hostility to the religious, and ethical, viewpoints of religious schools.

“The DfE said it would never happen, but since then we’ve been finding case after case where that’s exactly what’s going on.”

Calvert may be playing at being disingenuous, I suspect he knows as well as The Daily Stirrer does that The Politically Correct Thought Police at the Department Of Education have no use at all for well rounded human beings, what they want are brainwashed, unthinking automatons not capable of questioning authority.

Freedom For Sale

From the sale of public land and national parks to Frackers for profit, through illegal mass surveillance, illegal participation in unpopular foreign wars to the privatisation of the NHS where no basis of mandate existed, new gagging laws and political cover-ups including sexual abuse of children we see evidence every day that the elite hold the general public in contempt and see the abuse of privilege as one of the perks on their job.

It is hardly of any surprise that the public are beginning to understand that democracy in the UK is not really democracy any more but a kind of oligarchic collectivism. This is why nearly half don’t bother to vote, 8 out of 10 didn’t want local mayors, hardly anybody voted for police commissioners and in local and European Parliament elections less that a third of those eligible turn out to cast a vote.

This assault on our democratic rights has been going on for a long time, we can trace it back to Margaret Thatcher's government and beyond. This news sheet does not have much time for the 'Occupy' protestors (bored little rich kids playing at rebellion) but when they are on the receiving end of the travesties handed out by the bureaucratic dictatorship, we have to show some support.

Occupy Democracy?

#occupydemocracy Shows How Undemocratic Britain Has Become

A new section of civil liberties law, passed, almost unnoticed in 2011 (fellow blogger Michael St. Mark and I did warn you, but you preferred to read The Daily Wail or The Currant Bun - for non British readers The Daily Mail and The Sun, our most popular newspapers). These new regulations took away our right to peaceful protest in certain locations thus outlawing any kind of Occupy-style protest on Parliament Square, the patch of green outside the Parliament building. Heaven forbid that anything as trivial as civil liberties should put our delicate rulers at risk of seeing working class people on their way to work. This is the state of British democracy now.

After comedian (?) and actor Russell Brand turned up one night with a stack of pizzas for protesters, a police officer warned activists that if any of them should fall asleep on an empty pizza box, they would be prosecuted under the 2011 law for using sleeping equipment in Parliament Square.

Tents and structures for sheltering from the elements are also banned, but the police and courts have stretched the definition of structures to include umbrellas, and have even claimed that tarpaulin, placed flat on the ground for people to sit on, is a structure.

In an incident known as the ‘Battle of the Tarpaulin‘, Green Party politician Jenny Jones arrived at the Tarp protest and was promptly arrested. When the stormtroopers cops realised they had arrested a member of the House of Lords (who happens to be the deputy chair of the London Assembly’s police and crime committee) Jones was suddenly ‘de-arrested’. Asked why, a metropolitan police spokesman said ‘That was the decision.’

Occupiers have been told that, even if they have a right to protest, they cannot let anybody know what they are protesting about. Banners and placards to communicate their message are not allowed. Apparently banners and signs breach by-laws specific to Parliament Square. One protester arrested for sitting on the grass was accused or causing criminal damage to Greater London Council's grass. Two people have been arrested for trying to give protesters water and another was nicked because he scaled a fence, ran around on the grass and fed the police dogs sausages.

It would be funny if it wasn't so frightening.

The Myth of the Free Press

Think of a film about American journalism and All The President's Men, the story of how two Washington Post journalists, Bernstein and Woodward, exposed the wrongdoing of Richard Nixon's administration, the so called Watergate scandal. The Watergate incident happened in 1970s, much has changed in journalism, both in the USA and worldwide since then.

The film “Kill the Messenger,” (Wikipedia ... Review, Hollywood Reporter) tells the story of how mainstream media set about discrediting of the work of the investigative journalist Gary Webb. Kill The Messenger is a more down to earth rendering of the flawed corporate media and its willingness to cooperate with government agencies (The CIA in this case)to suppress information about the corrupt nature of corporatocracy. There is more truth in Kill The Messenger than there is in “All the President’s Men,” which celebrates the exploits of fearless reporters who stood against the might of big government and its hired thugs to reveal the truth to 'the little man. In fact All The President's Men could have been a John Wayne vehicle had there been a few horses.

Mainstream media are slavishly devoted to the ideology of corporate capitalism and the illusion of caring, sharing, egalitarian cultural Marxism the corporateocracy uses as a mask for its authoritarianism. Newspapers and television promote the myth of democracy even as we are stripped of civil liberties and television advertising (paid for by corporate money) replaces campaigning by candidates. They show deference to Wall Street The City, pay homage to corrupt and self serving politicians in Washington, London and Brussels, no matter how repugnant their behaviour or heinous their crimes. They laud the academics and scientists selected as the talking head the specialists and experts to interpret reality and explain policy, trused old lags who can be relied on to stay 'on message' and speak the lies that will advance the agenda, these people are amost always drawn from the faculties of a few select universities, . They usually rely on press releases, written by corporations, for their news. And they fill most of their news slots with celebrity gossip, breast implant stories, lifestyle, sports and trivia.

The role of mainstream media is to entertain or distract by parroting official propaganda to the sheeple. The corporations, which own the press, hire journalists willing to be courtiers to the elites, and they promote them as celebrities (Who? Did I mention Piers Morgan?). These journalistic and academic courtiers, who can earn millions of dollars, are invited into the inner circles of power but their role is that of sycophants employed to massage the egos of the corporate overlords. They are, as John Ralston Saul wrote, hedonists of power.

When Gary Webb, writing in a 1996 series in the San Jose Mercury News, exposed the Central Intelligence Agency’s complicity in smuggling tons of cocaine for sale into the United States to fund the CIA-backed Contra rebels in Nicaragua, the press turned him into a journalistic leper. And over the generations there is a long list of journalistic lepers, from the well known, BBC reporter Jeremy Bowen, who dared to report the truth about what was happening in Israel or Julian Assange and Glenn Greenwald who leaked and broke news of NSA / GCHQ covert surveillance to Abdulelah Haider Shaye, the first journalist to report the Obama administrations drone war in Yemen, arrested at the request of Obama for his honesty, the numerous journalists who tried to cover the Occupy Wall Street protests in the USA, and Barrett Brown who currently faces more than 100 years in jail for posting tens of thousands of emails that hacktivist group Anonymous attained from HBGary, a private internet security firm with ties to the U.S. government.

The attacks against Webb, repeated since the release of the film in October 2014 are an act of self-justification. They are an attempt by the mass media to disguise the relationship between themselves and the power elite. The mass media, like the rest of the liberal establishment, seek to wrap themselves in a veneer of moral righteousness as they claim a monopoly on truth and justice. To maintain this myth while advancing an agenda based on lies however they need to constantly destroy the credibility of journalists such as Webb and Greenwald, bloggers and scientists / academics, who shine a light on the sinister and murderous inner workings of the corporate empire; who care more about truth than money and power.

The End of Free Speech: FEC Democrats Move to Kill Political Dissent

Joe The Dissident

Those of us with eyes to see and ears to hear, to borrow a phrase from a book I do not like, have been trying to tell you that US President Barack Hussein Obama the traitor, war criminal and mass murderer who masquerades as President of the USA was no friends of democracy. If his brainwashed suporters had read and listened to his words, enquired into his shrouded and secret past or followed the alternative nesw sites that chronicled a carer based on corruption, blackmail, underhandedness and dishonesty they might have seen him foe what he is, a racist scum sucker who wants to destroy American society and set in train events that will lead to the extrmination of all white people on the planet.

The party he leads are worse because most of them are white and ethnically European and yet they are willing to collude in the destruction of their own race in order to win the favour of The Rent Boy President. To that end they pan to abolish free speech and like all the authoritarian leaders Obama models himself on, make dissidence a crime.

Democrats on the Federal Election Commission (FEC) are planning to introduce new regulations regarding political content on the internet, in order to kill free speech and political dissent. The decision of intent, which was announced late Friday, came about after an anti-Obama video posted to Youtube raised the ire of Democrats who found themselves powerless to stifle it as it was not a paid-for political ad, which would have brought it under existing FEC regulations.

Political content and advocacy posted free on the internet is not currently regulated by the FEC. Ann M. Ravel, who is a Obama-appointed Democrat and Vice Chair of the commission, is pushing to introduce regulations that will, effectively, govern all political materials on the internet. “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,” Ravel says.

The three Republicans on the six-member commission – including Chairman Lee E. Goodman, are resisting the call for more regulation. They argue that, if regulation is extended to cover even unpaid political advertising, then blogs, politically active news websites and all other politically-motivated speech on the web will be curtailed. “This freedom has gained wide acceptance, as evidenced by the hundreds of thousands of political videos, websites, blogs and other social media…” the three wrote in a dissenting statement. ” They added that the shift in policy suggested by Ravel and supported by the other Democrats on the commission “could threaten the continued development of the Internet’s virtual free marketplace of political ideas and democratic debate.”

Speaking to Fox News, Goodman said “I have been warning that my Democratic colleagues were moving to regulate media generally and the Internet specifically for almost a year now.” Ravel is due to take over the FEC Chair next year.

Democracy Denied - Government Reneges Of Policy Elector Voted For

On forming his coalition Government in 2010, David Cameron promised to deliver "a new politics" with the government allowing more public scrutiny of its actions, transparency and accountability. This was an attempt to repair the damage inflicted on the credibility and reputation of parliament by the MP's expenses scandal. A major feature of this 'new politics' would be constitutional reform.

Cameron's grandiose promises included funding two hundred open primaries, mostly to be held in constituencies that had been held by the same party for decades and the creation of a “wholly or mainly elected upper chamber on the basis of proportional representation”. He also pledged to introduce directly elected mayors in the 12 largest English cities. Not one of these promises have been met.

The policy initiative was introduced for the purpose of deflecting dissatisfaction among voters with a system in which most constituencies can be regarded as 'safe seats' for either Conservative or Labour party candidates, due to social class and income demographics, which effectively results in half the voters in such constituencies being effectively disenfranchised as there is little chance of a candidate they support being elected.

I myself, as first a Liberal Party voter and then, albeit reluctantly, a Lib Dem (I have also voted Independent, Green, Natural Law Party, Pirate Party, UKIP and Monster Raving Loony) And when the ballot choice is a straight fight between Labour and Conservative I refuse to take part in elections simply to vote for the least bad of two bad options.

The Coalition Agreement between Conservative and Liberal Democrat also committed the government to introducing the power of recall, allowing voters to force a by-election when an MP was found to have engaged in “serious wrongdoing” (provided at least 10% of constituents signed a petition). This was presented to and accepted by the electorate as crucial to voting for David Cameron's Conservatives as the party they could trust to protect our democracy.

Yesterday (28 October, 2014), a bill to implement this pledge was heavily defeated in Parliament in a free vote. MP’s that voted for the bill was 166 and 340 voted against it. This is a roll-call of shame and includes just a few names as George Osborne, Ed Balls, Margaret Becket, Vince Cable, Ken Clarke, Jonathin Djanogly, Iain Duncan Smith, Liam Fox, Simon Hughes, Owen Patterson, Eric Pickles, etc – the list obviously goes on and you can read every single one of them here courtesy of Guido Fawkes.

A fairly comprehensive cross section of the three main parties there, revealing that none has any commitment to democracy beyond doing whatever it takes to bribe of bully voters into electing them. As we say several times every week, it's time to smash the old politics and throw out the smug self serving shits of Conservative and Labour (and the Lib Dems who hope to survive by hanging onto the big parties coat tails), replacing them with MPs who have held down real jobs in the real world, who have acquired life experience outside the university / Westminster bubble and who care about Britain.

Some people get very tetchy if they think I am recommending a vote for UKIP, but if the left can't get their act together and form a new peoples' party to replace the faux-sociliste, paedophile loving party of the petit bourgeoisie and the greens with one MP are hopelessly split between the tree hugging weirdie beardies, and the authoritarian watermelons (green on the outside, red on the inside) what other hope is there.

Students censored – the children of an academy in crisis

by Xavier Connolly

It seems to be a theme we will keep returning to, this usurping of the higher education system by the pensée unique of Cultural Marxism. We have wriiten before of how universities, by definition places where minds can wander free and even the most unacceptable ideas in bourgeois society can be entertained, discussed, and explored.

Increasingly however we see the suppression of free thinking on the campus and in the faculty by a kind of intellectual fascism, and those who challenge the othrodoxies subjected to hate attacks orchestrated by a professorial version of George Orwell's Thought Police. But what has gone wrong? From the 1950s to the 1970s the left wing intellectual was a comic fugure, a caricature, now the right wing intellectual, if not already extinct is an endangered species.

With bans on everything from inflammatory cartoons to mildly sexist pop songs, censorship and suppression of free speech and freedom of thought has laid occupied British campuses. The worst manifestation of this intellectual fascism is probably the National Union of Student's 'No Platform' policy, which bars controversial speakers, i.e. those who will challenge the sacred cows of the left, such as the pseudo science of global warming, the cock-eyed notion that uncontrolled immigration is good for the economy and enriches our culture (ask those girls in Rotherham Rochdale and elsewhere how culturally enriched they felf after being drugged and gang raped by dirty old foreign men).

It is time to challenge this dictatorship of ideas, to broadcast the truth that a university degree is not the only measure of human intelligence and that saddling young people with a massive debt will not deliver a guarantee of a lucrative career. It is time to fight for free speech and fredom of ideas and throw the dictatorial left out of the education system.

So if you have wondered as I have, what happened to the intellectual freedom once enjoyed by professors, lecturers, fellows and under graduates in our universities, when was straying 'off-message' declared a crime and by whom and why are we not fighting against this drive to confine human minds within a framework of soft left authoritarianism and the tyranny of politically correct thinking? The embedded article below, from SPIKED, provides a lot of insight.

German Chancellor Lashes Out at Anti-Islamification Marches as Support Grows

As the tide of anti - Islamic feeling grows among the German working class has gained huge momentum since the day in October 2014 when in the city of Dresden two hundred 'like minded people' gathered to launch PEDIGA (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of Europe), a movement to defend the nationality and culture of European nations and regions.

The most recent PEDIGA demonstration last week attracted over seventeen thousand protestors to the regular weekly (on Mondays) 'strolls' as organisers call them. After three months of weekly Monday protests, PEGIDA called a special Christmas demonstration, and the crowd met to sing Christian Carols as a provokation to the radical Islamic elements who want visible and audible expressions of Christian feeling banned as it offends against Islam (NB: there are no documented demands from the Christian community that public affirmations of Islamic faith should be banned). Thanks to PEDIGA however, the Islamisation of Europe has moved to the top of German news bulletins, and has jerked the political elite into action.

Chancellor Angela Merkel reportedly used her televised New Year address to advise Germans to reject the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of Europe (PEGIDA) movement, remarking it “goes without saying” that Germany should accept mass immigration and refugees from the third world without questioning it.

Given the recent successes of the new anti immigration, anti - EU political movement AFD (Alternatif Fur Deutschland) in recent elections, the demands of bossy old Hausfrau Merkel will probably go down like a lead Zepplin among German'ys working class who are sick of being told they must give up not only their culture and traditions but their jobs and homes in order to accomodate the ever increasing flow of third world migrats the elite wants to stuff into their country.

Asylum applications to Germany have quadrupled over the past two years, immigration is at a twenty-year high and nobody knows how many people are finding their way into the coutry illegaly via Italy or former Soviet republics now in the EU thanks to the 'open door' immigration policy. This spike in migrats into Germany, along with a series of fierce pitched battles between different immigrant communities bringing middle eastern or African tribal and religious conflicts with them to the streets of European cities are among drivers for the PEGIDA movement's growth.

Another thorn in the side of Germans are the demands from Islamic community leaders that Muslims living in Germany should be subject to Sharia law, which they want to run in parralel with German national law, and a perceived reluctance of many migrants to integrate. Despite that, Merkel, like the traitors who run the United Kingdom, France, Sweden and further away the USA was full of praise for the trouble making immigrat leaders.

Chancellor Merkel’s speech was previewed by European media and her tone was described as patronising and condecending as she instructs German citizens to shun the PEGIDA movement, and to accept the things it protests against (i.e. the destruction of Germany) with open arms. In the broadcast, Merkel also made reference to the rally slogan of the Patriotic Europeans ‘we are the people’, a phrase inherited from strollers in a previous generation who campaigned against censorship and oppression in Communist East Germany.

The chancellor said: “Today many people are again shouting on Mondays: ‘We are the people’. But in fact they mean: You do not belong – because of the colour of your skin or your religion. So I say to everyone who goes to such demonstrations: Do not follow those who are appealing to you! Because too often there is prejudice, coldness, even hatred, in their hearts”.

PEGIDA had announced they would resume their marches in the new year on Monday the 5th of January this morning, however by Wednesday afternoon the posts had been deleted from Facebook, their primary method of communication with followers. A statement released by the Group along with a link to a news article about Merkel’s condemnation of the group asked: “Are we nearing a ban on our movement?

“We had to delete some posts! The cause for this are the nightly activities coming from the left. They posted false images of our movement, to make racist and anti-constitutional comments by using fake profiles. We ask for your understanding!

So once again we see the left, in cahoots with elected leaders who decline to represent the citizens of their nations, preferring to advance the agenda of global totalitarian government, bankrupt of arguments to support their neo - Fascist policies resorting to Nazi style slurs and hate attacks.

Spain's new migrant law upsets E U Thought Police

A top European human rights official has lashed out at Spain over is's new anti - immigration law, claiming the new rules risked destroying the E U asylum system. The law, authorizes police to immediately deport migrants from Spanish north African territories. Spain says the measure is necessary to enable guards to secure the border of Ceuta and Melilla, two Spanish enclaves on the coast of Morocco.

Spanish police have been accused of violating human rights conventions by beating African migrants who climb the fences between Morocco and Spanish African territories and deporting them on the spot (so-called "pushbacks"), ignoring asylum procedures.

The human rights commissioner of the Council of Europe, Nils Muiznieks, said after meetings with officials in Melilla and Madrid that the plan to legalize such deportations was "in clear breach of human rights law".

"In many countries I have seen pushbacks, but nowhere are they legal or legalized," he told reporters in Madrid.

"It would be a very bad precedent if such practices were enshrined in law because I think that would mean the beginning of the end for the asylum system."

In effect then, he is saying that no action can be taken to prevent undocument migrants entering any European nation. This attitude sums up the hatred of the political elite for European people and culture.

Spain, refusing to be intimidated by some little pen pusher in a Hugo Boss suit, is setting up new offices to process asylum claims at Ceuta and Melilla's borders. There is a long established procedure for seeking political asylum, which involves presenting oneself to the authorities. Climbing over fences and melting away into the darkness is not part of this procedure, so it is Muiznieks and the Politically Correct Thought Police who are pissing on human rights conventions. And why? We suspect it is because they know 90% of those claiming to be asylum seekers are on-the-run criminals, professional beggars and malcontents.

In the wake of last week's deadly attacks in Paris, Muiznieks naively (or disingenuously) insisted there was "no intrinsic or direct link between migration and terrorism".

Europe’s Intensifying Immigration Debate

posted by Arthur Foxake

In an absolutely gobsmacking psychological meltdown and an unparalleled display of bourgeois self hate, the former Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt demonstrated how wide the gap between the political and academic elite and reality has become in the materially advanced democracies. He also made himself an early fron runner for the title "cupid stunt of the century."

Reinfeldt, understandable bitter perhaps at the mauling his centre right politically correct consensus party took at the hands of the upstart anti - immigration party The Sweden Democrats in the 2014 general elections, Reinfeld seemed to offload his anger, not at his political opponents whose anti - immigrant stance might prevent him employing third world migrants as house servants at statvation level wages (yes, there's a reason these elitists love immigration) bu at the Swedish nation in general.

Having declared that Sweden's borders are artificial and the country belongs to immigrants rather than the Swedes, Reinfeld waved goodbye to his political career by managing to diss Swedish history, culture and technical achievement while being factually wrong in almost every comment he made. Read more on the insane rant below.

The embedded article does not stop at one man's mental breakdown however, it goes on to highlight how throughout Europe, the elite's insistence that immigration is good and necessary is totally at odd with the wishes of the electorate. As the politicians attempt to suppress debate and continue with unpopular and idiotic policies that can only destroy the cultures of their nations we are increasingly seeing civil unrest escalating into violence.

Right now the west is in big trouble, the move led by Russia and China to dump the petrodollar as global currency has provoked the Americans to lead the wesern allies into an economic war that we cannot win. Why not? One word: debt. A shooting war is the only option but it's by no means certain the allies would win that.
