BEIJING (Reuters) – China strongly condemned Britain on Monday for sailing a warship through the sensitive Taiwan Strait, saying it was behaviour that “harboured evil intentions” and that the Chinese military followed the vessel and warned it away.

Comment Britain’s leaders are hypocritical on the subject of human rights. They have a reckless attitude to China and Russia – and contempt for the needs of their own masses. In foreign affairs they punch above their weight and expect to hide behind the U.S as they did when they cooked the books for the second Iraq war, with all of its terrible on going consequences.

Joe Biden told to have Nancy Pelosi back down on Brexit standoff ‘Threat is not from UK!’ September 19th 2021

Oli Smith 

Boris Johnson will meet with US President Joe Biden this week at the White House as he jets to the States for the UN General Assembly meeting. The British Prime Minister will try to bolster US ties with the UK in the wake of this week’s surprise AUKUS trilateral defence pact between the two countries and Australia. It is hoped that the pact, which could create hundreds of new jobs, will help mend the rift between the UK and US over the Northern Ireland border amid stalled talks for a trade deal.

Freedom’s Just Another Name For Nothing left To Lose – September 19th 2021

Videos of freedom’s just another name for nothing left to lose

Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose
Nothing, I mean nothing, honey if it ain’t free, no no

This is a comment on the following news report. The French Revolution was fought for and proclaimed on the basis of ‘Liberty , Equality and Fraternity .’ Europe’s aristocracy trembled and bandied together in fear of losing their heads.

It wasn’t long before the vaunted Republic turned into an Empire under a dictator little better than the monarchy overthrown. Europe went on to be a hotbed of war . The foiled 1848 revolutions spawned German Jewish academic Karl Marx’s ‘Communist Manifesto.’

Marx was driven out of Prussia , taking refuge in London. His friend Friedrich Engels’ family owned a cotton spinning factory in Manchester. Engels was thus able to supply raw data of working class misery and exploitation.

Meanwhile , Russia and Austria were in conflict in the Balkans , culminating in the assassination of Austria’s Archduke Francis Ferdinand by a Serbian student named Princip. France lost no time goading Russia into war with a Germany united at their expense.

This led to the absurd situation with the inbred leaders of the three main participants being first cousins. Words like freedom were used to justify forcing millions of young white Europeans into a mincing machine. The German working class were no more to blame than their rivals. they had no choice. Women who had recently been fighting for an equal right to vote, were quick to hand out white feathers to men not in uniform.

The French got their revenge on Germany , backed by Britain in a punitive non negotiated peace settlement at Versailles in 1919. Germany was bankrupted , with their working classes bearing the brunt of misery. Resentment and Nazism was inevitable , exacerbated by a World Trade Depression – another most interesting story. World War Two was really round two , with the U.S forced to join in after Pearl Harbour. This boosted their ailing economy, giving us the current world of rolling wars with deep state war mongering and profiteering culture.

There is no freedom for the masses in all of this. If your government wants you to know something you can bet it is a lie. So we come to AUKUS. It is all about fear of Russia and China joining forces and threatening western elite life styles. Western politicians represent wealthy interests. Only their freedoms matter.

‘Freedoms need to be defended’: Liz Truss hails AUKUS submarine deal amid deepening row with France – September 19th 2021

Amy Coles, news reporter 

New Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has defended the UK’s “hard-headed” security pact with the US and Australia, amid a deepening diplomatic row with France.

The AUKUS deal saw the UK, Australia and the US form a security pact to develop and deploy a new fleet of nuclear-powered submarines, adding to the Western military presence in the Pacific region.

France was outraged by the deal which sees them losing out on a £30bn contract to supply conventional submarines to Australia, who opted for nuclear-powered subs provided by Britain and the US.

Aukus pact: UK and US battle to contain international backlash – September 16th 2021

Dan Sabbagh, Julian Borger, Helen Davidson and Angelique Chrisafis

Britain and the US were battling to contain an international backlash over a nuclear submarine pact struck with Australia amid concerns the alliance could provoke China and prompt conflict in the Pacific.

Boris Johnson told MPs that the Aukus defence agreement was “not intended to be adversarial” to China. But Beijing accused the three countries of adopting a “cold war mentality” and warned they would harm their own interests unless it was dropped.

Comment I have mentioned the concept of reductionism. in philosophy, before. For example, as my former teacher self , if I wanted to explain how a petrol engine worked, I would use a single cylinder moped engine as my model , not a a Rolls Royce V12. The student would simply build their knowledge on the simplification.

As another example , I remember an interesting co driver from my days truck driving for ‘Swift Care ‘. He was a Polish trained architect. I asked him how it was possible to build such huge modern buildings. He replied , ‘Simple. can you do a 500 piece jig saw ?’ ‘Just about my limit’ I said. He responded ‘ Well , it is just a 500 piece jig saw done 500 times and put together as one item.’

So , what has this to do with world politics ? Simple, because world politics is that 500 piece jig saw 500 times. It reduces to the ruling super rich comfortable elite’s hunger for power , wealth , privilege and pleasure at the masses expense. It works on mechanisms of lying , hypocrisy , deception , and as Trump said, FEAR. The elite are capable of anything.

This site’s correspondent F.S wrote to me yesterday :

Did you know that the BBC has ‘lost’ all its 9/11 coverage?

Remembering 9/11 – by Roberta Jane Cook September 15th 2021

In the wake of the outrage ,I saw some U.S footage, I forget how, but it was something about a missile strike on the Pentagon on 9/11. It then disappeared. There was also the footage of George Bush Jnr at a city school somewhere, where he was about to be asked about schooling and he said what a tragedy the twin tower strikes were – and they hadn’t happened at that point so the interviewer was bemused.

Moore’s book ‘Stupid White Men’ was very convincing. When I was a truck driver, I was one of a two man crew taking a heavy delivery all around Cardiff and Swansea., in an 18 tonner. My co driver was a man called Dave.  Now as you know – in spite of what the psychiatrists want to say – I like to talk , listen and learn.

The subject of 9/11 came up – lorry drivers are not generally thick stupid people though they may not have my education. They see a lot of life. My father was a truck driver after wartime army service.

So Dave told me that he and his late father were watching TV when the coverage was live. Dave’s dad had been an engineer and explosives expert in the army , attached to the SAS, so he knew about these things.
So he says to young Dave, while the top of the towers were burning , ‘Watch that helicopter going around the back of the building, off camera. It is up to something.  Moments later the first tower collapsed. Dave’s dad said someone in the helicopter had triggered a remote controlled detonator to semtex. He said they did stuff like that in the SAS.

Very plausible I thought , because jet fuel is basically super paraffin and cannot burn at high enough temperatures to melt steel girders.
As Moore noted , all top personnel were missing from the towers that day and the roof doors were locked so there could be no helicopter rescue or witnesses to the detonations – this is Dave’s surmise, not Moore’s. Moore as far as I can recall.

Moore’s book is very convincing, including evidence that the Pentagon was a missile strike and that it was impossible for passengers to make the alleged calls from the flight that was shot down before hitting the White House – how did they know it was going there.?

That all of this nonsense was used to justify attacking Afghanistan and Iraq – thence the rolling wars – with all the crappy dossier and murder of Dr Ian Kelly says it all. The apparently odd response to Chelsea Manning and Assange for telling us what we know the Anglo U.S et al do in war, crimes being the norm, is evidence that Wilkileaks have some far more serious stuff. Britain was complicit in setting Assange up with the inevitable sex crime lies to trap him. U.S and U.K are in this together.

The BBC was the wartime Ministry of Information , riddled with security operatives as are major newspapers. The 9/11 incident was the real beginning of the New World Order referenced by George Bush Snr at the end of the first Gulf War, when he said he would not topple Hussein because Saudi Arabia would fill the power vacuum if they did.

So that’s why we have the Middle East in turmoil and Libya now an open door from north Africa for mass migration. .Gaddafi was in danger of creating a North Africa trading bloc. The West only supports African tyrants who retard the continent, this ensuring ignorance, cheap resources and flood of desperate cheap labour into the west.

Because of such antics, the virtue signalling western elite have mind blowing wealth,, much to gain from pushing this further, but Russia and China are in the way. It will be regime change or war, which is where Covid 19 came in.

The CIA knew 9/11 was going to happen and they helped faciltate it. Robin Cook knew too much and his Guardian article on the history f Al Q’ada , as CIA code name translated from their ‘Data File’ op, sealed his fate. No one wonders why all the Al Q’ada little people were captured and tortured while the top man , Bin Laden , was hunted and shot so many times, his body and person was beyond recognition. Then they told us , he was buried at sea, like all good Muslims apparently. So must be a lot f food for the sharks down there considering how rapidly the Muslim population is expanding. I could go on. R J Cook

France chaos: Protests descend into violence as hundreds of thousands march against Macron – September 11th 2021

Oli Smith  

Nearly 200 protests are taking place across France today in a coordinated pushback against Emmanuel Macron’s government. Protesters have taken to the streets in major French cities, including the capital Paris, for the ninth consecutive weekly protest against the ‘health pass’. However, the protests have quickly turned violent in the French capital, where clashes have been filmed.

Police were seen using their batons to hit protesters while other officers fired off tear gas to disperse the march.

Comment

Lockdowns are a prison method for subjugating independent thought and action .. Modern society is a prison of various degrees for the masses. Freedom is an illusion. Protest is effectively illegal if it has to be state sanctioned.Life in North Africa and the Middle East is an Islamic bloc on the move west. Society’s fault lines are massive. France and U.K squabble over migrants but Britain’s elite want them. The whole decision process is an in fight between elites, only slightly confused by Barmy Brexit and the moronic ‘ we’ve got our country back’ brigade . Cun- tree more like. The rich elite have and control it all with plenty of police and other lackeys , just like the days of Nazi Germany.

EU fury erupts over funding for Pakistan and Iran as continent prepares for migrant surge – September 7th 2021

Alessandra Scotto di Santolo 

EU member states are already clashing on how to deal with the thousands of new Afghanistan migrants looking to flee the country since the Taliban took over. Austria and Serbia have met to discuss stopping refugees from entering Europe, over the weekend.

Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz suggested Afghanistan’s neighbours should accept migrants instead.

He said: “This is why we are in contact with countries in the region.”

But as leaders in the EU call for a global approach to the migration crisis, questions over the EU’s financial support to countries like Pakistan and Iran are arising.

Comment

We are not supposed to discuss our concerns about mass migration from North Africa and the Islamic world because the elite and their middle class minions consider it racist. In the same way we are not supposed to link climate change to unsustainable population growth – because most of it comes from the Islamic and Third World.

Our ruling classes and politicians live in a world of high pay and exceptionally expensive security. The majority of people in Europe and the U.S.A are not privileged whites , fake transsexuals out to rape vulnerable women in public toilets, or toxic males. The fact that it is deemed legitimate to call people such vile dismissive names has added a lot of fuel to the social fire.

There are clearly people allowed to commit these hate crimes without penalty and even getting applause. What would Gareth Southgate do to express his high morals if there were no apparently racist chants from the football crowd – God knows why people watch such a ridiculous game of millionaires kicking a lightweight ball about a big well mown field of maybe astra turf.

My point is that the well off patronise and dictate to the masses in the names of democracy and freedom. The reality is that even the more moderate Sunni Muslims, who are fleeing to Europe because they want a better life and the rich want cheap poorly educated labour, are committed to a world where Islamic culture rules all lives. They have been taught this way since their earliest socialisation.

Not only is there inevitable cultural conflict , there is the issue of space. The ruling class aim to resolve this problem with what they consider positive imagery and explanation through the rich man’s business of mass media. They know many older whites feel marginalised by this process but look to those people fading away and new generations of factory school kids from one parent homes , where mother is boss ,creating a more compliant underclass.

That is all very well , but the elite do not expect or intend to adjust their behaviour and lives to this ‘new normality.’ Meanwhile , Islamists have no intention of adapting either. The Woke and Terf Feminists will be willing allies in helping Islamists to condemn transsexuals and gays – two very different mindsets though morons cannot grasp the difference as I learned when I was arrested on malicious gay brothel charges and later prosecuted for swearing at the lead cop.

Faced with such large numbers of Islamic migrants, scapegoats like me are very useful in conning the masses. The fact of a wider issue of an overpopulation all aiming for the same boat is ignored – along with what is wrong with Islam.

That is not to say that the likes of Blair and Bush, along with successors covertly attacking Syria and Iran, have not provoked this appalling wildfire. so it is important to realise that the political class can not be relied upon for truth or sensible conduct now. Their priority is themselves and their real privileges. They will go on making it all up as they go along, telling you how difficult their jobs are , having more police watching and listening , more cameras, more intrusive laws, voting themselves more pay and telling you it is all about keeping you safe.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you! France issues demand for EU to become military ‘superpower’ – September 7th 2021

Joe Barnes,

Its finance minister Bruno Le Maire said the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan should be a “wake-up call” for the EU in terms of Europe’s defence. Many EU capitals are concerned that the bloc was forced to pull out of Kabul’s international airport after the US troops operating the facility were withdrawn by Washington. This cut short many of the evacuations being carried out by European nations.

Read More Don’t say we didn’t warn you! France issues demand for EU to become military ‘superpower’ (msn.com)

Comment A certain class, the predacious class, set the agenda. Britain & Europe’s leadership attitude to the Shi’ite Taliban return to power in Afghanistan has been intriguing. The U.S apparently went in to catch Osama Bin Laden and defeat his Al-Qaeda .

The latter means data file and was the CIA code name for Anglo US trained forces used against the Soviets in 1980 because of Afghanistan’s strategic importance, Former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook died mysteriously five weeks after revealing this in The Guardian newspaper. His boss , Tony Blair , could not wait to invade under the banner of ‘women’s rights.’ He has called U.S withdrawal ‘imbecilic’ – a case of pot calling the kettle black.

So we can see where Macron wants to lead us. Like Covid and lockdown, rolling wars are convenient distractions from domestic problems , making more money and virtue signalling for the elite. The word ‘humanitarian’ makes it all sound so good.

Am I the only person who thought it odd and rather convenient that when arch demon Bin Laden was apparently tracked down to his lair in Pakistan, that he was machine gunned so much as to be unrecognisable . Then I learned something new; that Muslims like to be buried at sea.

Why didn’t they offer that privilege to Saddam Hussein and Colonel Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi . Why didn’t they capture and interrogate Bin Laden ? Why did Bin Laden – whose large extended family were wealthy associates of the Bush clan and evacuated just before 9/11 – get killed rather than a trip to Guantánamo Bay ?

Industrial and military mad men have been making a fortune at the expense of their frightened masses for a very long time. Fighting racism, gender wars, Covid lockdowns and dubious vaccines have been the icing on the ‘freedom ‘ cake. It is comical that this is all packaged in the name of freedom – when only the elite’s freedom matters. R J Cook

Comment Logically , according to Western liberalism , the whole Afghan population should be allowed to move west without question – for a better life. Interestingly their opposition to the Taliban has nothing to do with leaving hard line Shi’ite Islamism. Their increasing numbers has enormous implications for those of us who view any forceful and dominant religious behaviour as a problem for human progress. Religion is not a race, but white ‘liberal’ chattering classes are redefining the word to suit their lives as virtue signallers. R J Cook
