Selling the coup to the Deplorables.


There’s simply no way the propaganda machine can convince the deplorables that the election wasn’t stolen and that the puppet Biden is a legitimate president. Before continuing, I use the term propaganda machine to mean the collective actions of fake news, big tech and the entertainment industry. The first will be publishing only state approved … Continue reading

Selling the coup to the Programmed.


This shouldn’t present many difficulties. Not only are they already programmed but they habitually suffer from the twin evils of a short attention span and a need to fit into some sort of set. Ideal subjects for propaganda. Work with what you’ve got. Make all your messages short and punchy and always slant the message … Continue reading

Legitimising the coup.


This is top priority with Biden’s puppeteers. The message is the Big Steal never happened and if you dare to voice that opinion, life will get a lot more difficult for you. Internationally, it’ll be done by exercising American economic muscle and making a harsh example of any foreign country that dares to opine otherwise. … Continue reading

I shouldn’t do it, but WTF.


Sometimes you discover something all on your own and realise it was always there right under your nose but you’d simply failed to ask an obvious question. In yesterday’s piece I said the most immediate thing people can do is stop using social media platforms in order to protect themselves and really hurt the American … Continue reading

Things to do today.


The coup has succeeded and a foreign regime has been installed in the White House. That being the case, they’ll quickly move to consolidate their grip on power. As always in any crisis, keep a couple of things in mind. The first is there isn’t one that can’t be made worse still by losing your … Continue reading

Redux from 25th October 2020 – What if Biden wins?


The wisdom of the ages endures because it’s simply that – wisdom. After all the storms and vicissitudes of fashion, politics, wars and social upheaval have ran their transitory course and been largely forgotten, it’s all that remains except for the common man who’s survived them all. That’s been true from even before the life … Continue reading

Now big tech goes after Signal.


Writing a daily blog piece appears to have something in common with commenting on blogs – as soon as you hit publish, an interesting news item comes along. I’d barely published Friday’s piece about Facebook stabbing WhatsApp users in the back by changing the terms of agreement to allow them to harvest all your personal … Continue reading

Now WhatsApp stabs you in the back.


There’s a trick which has always been used by governments and corporates in the timing of announcements which they know won’t go down well with voters or customers. They simply wait until some big headline grabbing news event occurs such as the Titanic going down, the Twin Towers or the sudden death of free speech … Continue reading

Will Mr Fox’s standing invitation into the chicken coop be withdrawn?


Today looks to have been better than yesterday in terms of news censorship. Gab appears to be up and working, albeit with a few wobbles. Parler looks to be Resting in Peace, but you never know these days. The implications of a couple of items caught my eye. The first was the Uganda government’s decision … Continue reading

A day of no news.


An interesting Wednesday. It’s usually my day to deal with bills, turnaround letters and emails and generally do some office paperwork and filing. On a good one, but only after a leisurely sleep in to avoid the boring mundaneness of it, I’ve usually cleared my workload by lunchtime and the afternoon is mine to do … Continue reading

From the ashes of Fox News will rise the hen house Fox


It’s been an extraordinary few days. Watching all platforms of dissenting news being taken down one by one or struggling to cope with a huge influx of people fleeing fake news and looking for somewhere they could find some true reporting and at the same time give vent to their feelings for which there was … Continue reading

Security alert – Parler.


In yesterday’s article I mentioned the American oligarchs had decided to close down Parler by simply deplatforming it with only a few days notice. As I write I’m sure the staff at Parler are working furiously to move the site to a new hosting service, and I wish them all the best in achieving their … Continue reading

The end of free speech in America?


After a few weeks away from blogging and some time out from the fray, I come back from a subdued Christmas to find the finishing bricks of the coup have been slamming into place. Wholesale censorship of any and all conservative and dissenting voices on all social media platforms have either been deleted or automatically … Continue reading
