How the purge of the military is being done


Every illegal regime that comes to power by means of a coup lives in constant fear of the same thing happening to them. It’s their abiding characteristic and the reason they regularly have mass purges. The mass murderer Mao Tse-tung reputedly said that political power grows from the barrel of a gun, which is the … Continue reading

About the controlling and the controlled.


Yesterday’s piece was entitled “Banks collaborating with the regime”. Perhaps provocative, but most certainly true, though it does leave a slightly misleading impression of what’s actually going on behind the scenes. No one person at board level suddenly decided they hated Mike Lindell or to freely give the secret police the details en masse of … 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Will Mr Fox’s standing invitation into the chicken coop be withdrawn?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

Redux from 20th October 2016 – I wouldn’t trust them with my security. Why should you?


Though written four years ago, this one touches on several issues of current interest. It was written a couple of weeks before Trump’s victory which laid waste to a lot of carefully laid plans, not to mention years of patient work and money. Mice and assorted men ran in all directions after the shock and … Continue reading

There are only three power blocks in the world – America.


In the previous two articles in the power blocks series, I discussed how the problem of an increasingly assertive Oligarchy turned out differently in China and Russia. The problem in both cases was that their own home-grown and foreign oligarchs wanted a bigger say in the actual running of the countries, if not to rule … Continue reading

There are only three power blocks in the world – Russia.


Between long bouts of silence and mulling over a cogent response, I’m actually a good listener. It’s the only way to learn anything. It often leads to interminable conversations to which my minimal contribution is nothing more than the customary nodding until I feel the onset of logic chip meltdown and suddenly remember my perm … Continue reading

There are only three power blocks in the world – China.


Taking them in a very particular order, I’ll start with China. At its inception it was modelled very much on Stalin’s Soviet Russia. All political enemies were either killed or ran for their lives, a harsh regime of unquestionable conformity was imposed, but the carrot of a glowing socialist future was always dangled before the … Continue reading
