TTT: TED Talk Twaddle

Ted Talks aim, it seems, to provide some incredibly deep novel insight about the world in a presentation of scintillating wit and crystalline clarity, that can be assimilated by anyone with even the most modest intellectual aspirations and only ten of fifteen minutes to spare.

In fact, incredibly deep and novel insights, or novel insights of any kind at all, tend to be rather few and far between. Moreover, the most important novel insights are often the product of highly specialized research in arcane fields such as quantum mechanics, neurophysiology or hominid paleontology in Northwest China, topics that are not immediately accessible to the casual Web browser. Thus, TED Talks tend to fall short of expectation. Indeed, some amount to nothing more than hifalutin bunk, while others make claims that go far beyond, or which contradict, the evidence.

Tereson May

The parliaments and people mean very little now in Europe – as little as in Russia. The British people voted for Brexit. Fine! So did it happen? Not at all. The new unelected government of Theresa May just pushed the decision far away into the heap of not-very-urgent business correspondence next to requesting assignment of a budget to a Zoo. Maybe she will deliver it to Brussels in a year or two. Or people will forget about that vote.

Israel Shamir: Democracy's Last Chance
To understand the title of this piece, you have to know that in Britain, the second vowel in the name Teresa is pronounced as the 'ea' in treason.

As we pointed out a few weeks ago, Britain's notable female rulers from Boadicea to Good Queen Bess, and Margaret Thatcher have been pretty much like the majority of their male counterparts — but with balls.

How the West destroys its own

Gin Lane, London by William Hogarth.

Originally posted March 12, 2012: Great cities have always consumed population. In times past, infectious diseases spread by rats and polluted water, respiratory diseases due to air pollution, and the absence of space to grow food to avert starvation during times of unemployment, all reduced the life expectancy and fertility of urban populations relative to that of country dwellers.

Today, cities are healthier places to live, but they still impose a severe restraint on human reproductive success due to the high cost of urban living, particularly the costs of housing and transportation.

Do You Really Have a Mind?

After we came out of the church, we stood talking for some time together of Bishop Berkeley's ingenious sophistry to prove the nonexistence of matter, and that every thing in the universe is merely ideal. I observed, that though we are satisfied his doctrine is not true, it is impossible to refute it. I never shall forget the alacrity with which Johnson answered, striking his foot with mighty force against a large stone, till he rebounded from it "I refute it thus."

James Boswell: The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D. (1791)

The world is composed of matter: wind, water, and hard things like rocks that can be kicked by philosophers, whereas our awareness of the world seems to be of an altogether different character. Consciouslness, except our own, cannot be seen, heard, tasted, touched or smelled or otherwise directly shared, but can only be intimated by words, the meanings of which we learn ostensively, by reference to things that can be observed by both speaker and hearer.

The challenge of explaining consciousness has naturally attracted the attention of philosophers who seem almost as puzzled by the problem as anyone else. A solution that some philosophers have adopted is to assume that consciousness is inherent in all matter, not just brains, a theory called panpsychism.

9/11: Living With Lies

9/11 has provided many people with an interesting intellectual puzzle, the solution to which, in outline at least, is fairly obvious, but which will never be publicly acknowledged short of a  coup d'état in Washington, DC.

The reason the truth cannot otherwise be acknowledged is obvious: many people were involved in 9/11, which means that public recognition of the truth would necessitate mass trials and executions of members of both Democratic and Republican Party leadership, plus many prominent persons within the security apparatus. Almost certainly, corporate entities, their directors, and members of their technical staffs would also be implicated, together with security services and corporate entities of several other countries.

Ancient Greek Science: Or How Not to Report an Experiment

There is more evidence to prove that saltness [of the sea] is due to the admixture of some substance, besides that which we have adduced. Make a vessel of wax and put it in the sea, fastening its mouth in such a way as to prevent any water getting in. Then the water that percolates through the wax sides of the vessel is sweet, the earthy stuff, the admixture of which makes the water salt, being separated off as it were by a filter.
Aristotle: Meteorology, Book II
First Posted October 15, 2012: It has been suggested that this is an example of Aristotle giving experimental proof of desalination by osmosis. In fact, it is an example of why science in ancient Greece never took off. Moreover, if the procedure Aristotle described had worked, it would have been an example not of osmosis but of reverse osmosis, whereby water from a salty solution is forced through a semipermeable membrane that prevents the passage of salts. But as described, the procedure would not have worked because the walls of a vessel of wax will not serve as a semipermeable membrane. Moreover, unless the vessel was immersed at depth, something Aristotle does not mention, there would have been no pressure gradient to drive the process.

Trump's Basket of Proud Deplorables

When, during the First World War, a British Expeditionary Force crossed the English Channel to fight alongside the French army in the defense of France, the German Kaiser dismissed it as a "contemptible little army".

The name stuck, and those members of the British force who lived to see Germany defeated, were ever after proud to call themselves "The Old Contemptibles."

Hillary Not Bad But Mad?

Hillary Clinton has what appear to be symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

In an article at Psych Central by Margarita Tartakovsky entitled What You Need to Know About Psychosis in Parkinson’s Disease, we are told that “Psychosis in Parkinson’s disease is very common.” And then, quoting Dr. James Beck, Director of research programs at the Parkinson's Disease Foundation:
In fact, psychosis may affect 1 in 5 Parkinson’s patients... And as many as 2 out of 3 patients may experience minor symptoms, “such as non-bothersome illusions. (An example is “seeing something in the corner of your eye that may not be there, [such as] a bug in the sink for an instant.”)

Patients primarily experience visual hallucinations ... A smaller number of patients – 10 to 20 percent – experience auditory hallucinations, he said.

An Exclusive Interview With Jesus Christ

We all know what Jesus thought about major social issues of his own days on Earth, matters such as the stoning of adulteresses, the payment of taxes to Rome, how to respond when smitten on the cheek, and so forth. But there are many moral questions that we have to decide today on which Jesus's position is not immediately obvious.

Fortunately, Jesus, as everyone who has read the gospel accounts of his life knows, taught his followers to regard God as a personal god to whom they could speak as they would speak to a loving father. It was in this spirit, therefore, that we invited Jesus to join us on this blog for an exclusive interview via Skype*, a request that Jesus, now a member of the Holy Trinity, and thus the voice of God, very graciously agreed to.

Without further ado, then, here is our conversation.

The Trump Stock Market Slump — Just Started?

US stock markets are off by more than one and a half percent today (actually tw and a half percent by the close), which coincides with realization that Hillary lost the Commander-in-Chief tele-thingy whatever it was. I didn't watch, but I see one poll indicating that Trump was judged the winner by a margin among viewers of two to one.

That follows a series of polls of voting intention showing Trump either even with Clinton or marginally ahead. Considering the anti-Trump media bias and the incentive the media therefore have to skew the poll results, the implication is that Trump is now well out in front. And that's ignoring the shy Trump supporter phenomenon, which manifests as Trump supporters telling pollsters that they support one of the no-hope third-party candidates, although in the event they intend to put their X next to Trump's name.

For investors, the message is clear. It's time to pay attention to Trump's economic plan, which is that: Interest rates have to go up.

Brexit Means Exit, Not Bullshit

In this June's United Kingdom European Union Membership Referendum, Brits voted by an absolute majority to leave the European Union. Following the vote, Prime Minister Cameron, who campaigned for Britain to remain in the EU, resigned the premiership, attributing defeat of the remain campaign to public anger over the EU-mandated immigrant flood that has made the English a minority in their own capital city of London and in many other urban centers including the cities of Leicester, Luton and Slough, and soon England's second city, Birmingham.

The new face of  Britain. In Luton, a jobless couple with eight 
children demands public housing with at least six double bedrooms. 
They evidently plan on having a couple more kids. 

It's what's known as indigenous population replacement
immigration, aka the genocide of the English. Meantime the folks
slated for extinction are evidently paying to clothe, feed and 
educate those who are about to replace them. (Source).
Quite bizarrely, the Conservative Party opted to replace Cameron as Prime Minister with former Home Secretary, Teresa May, who not only campaigned with David Cameron against Britain's departure from the EU (aka Brexit), but is on record as favoring Shariah courts in Britain, one of the issues of greatest contention among those opposed to the wholesale replacement of the English people and their culture, including the English common law,  by people and cultures from elsewhere.

Since assuming the Premiership, Ms. May has done little to dispel the impression that she is totally unqualified to handle the Brexit decision. "Brexit" she declared "means Brexit," whereas in reality Brexit means exit, a fact that Ms. May seems anxious to obscure.

Why China Booms While America Stagnates

Americans have no reluctance to spend.

Consumption spending in the US, that is expenditures by people, not governments or corporations, equals 71% of the US GDP.

So what's holding back the US economy, which has been essentially flat for years and where real wages have fallen, while the proportion of the working age population that is not working has continually risen to reach a total, today, of 94 million?

The answer: Americans are tapped out. They've spent what they earn and much more beside on credit. But now the banks won't lend them more because they know that the public is at the limit of its capacity to service debt.

So what to do?

Senile George Soros Reveals the Contempt of a Globalist Billionaire for American Democracy



My bet is that George Soros is a front for the CIA or other such agency, doing things in his own name that his paymasters would be embarrassed to be caught doing for themselves.

The widely held assumption that George Soros is spending billions of his own money pushing the New World Order or any other political program seems totally out of character, and therefore improbably in the extreme.

Trump's America Firstism Versus Clinton's Globalist American Self-Destructionism

By Patrick J. Buchanan

World Net Daily, September 2, 2016: In accepting the invitation of President Enrique Pena Nieto to fly to Mexico City, the Donald was taking a major risk.

Yet it was a bold and decisive move, and it paid off in what was the best day of Donald Trump’s campaign.

Standing beside Nieto, graciously complimenting him and speaking warmly of Mexico and its people, Trump looked like a president. And the Mexican president treated him like one, even as Trump restated the basic elements of his immigration policy, including the border wall.

The gnashing of teeth up at the New York Times testifies to Trump’s triumph:
Mr. Trump has spent his entire campaign painting Mexico as a nation of rapists, drug smugglers, and trade hustlers. … But instead of chastising Mr. Trump, Mr. Pena Nieto treated him like a visiting head of state … with side-by-side lecterns and words of deferential mush.
As I wrote in August, Trump “must convince the nation … he is an acceptable, indeed, a preferable alternative” to Hillary Clinton, whom the nation does not want.

The Shockingly Regressive Social Attitudes of British Muslims Threaten to Tear the Country Apart

As any English person in Londonistan knows, speaking the truth about the population and immigration policies of Britain's treasonous governing elite, the Blair's, the Cameron's, the May's and their media enablers and defenders is, yes you got it, RAAAACIIIIST.

Thing is, as we pointed out the other day, not being RAAAACIIIST means being complicit in the genocide of your own people. So what are you? A politically correct twit complacently driven by the powers that be to support the destruction of your own people and culture — the Western civilization that created the modern world, or a RAAAACIIIIIST?

The U.S. Department of Clinton

Or, 

How Can the Democratic Party Run a Crook for President? 

Easily, as the Clinton Supporters commenting over at the WST make clear.

By Kimberly A. Strassell

Wall Street Journal, August 25, 2016: This is the week that the steady drip, drip, drip of details about Hillary Clinton’s server turned into a waterfall. This is the week that we finally learned why Mrs. Clinton used a private communications setup, and what it hid. This is the week, in short, that we found out that the infamous server was designed to hide that Mrs. Clinton for three years served as the U.S. Secretary of the Clinton Foundation.

In March this column argued that while Mrs. Clinton’s mishandling of classified information was important, it missed the bigger point. The Democratic nominee obviously didn’t set up her server with the express purpose of exposing national secrets—that was incidental. She set up the server to keep secret the details of the Clintons’ private life—a life built around an elaborate and sweeping money-raising and self-promoting entity known as the Clinton Foundation.

Had Secretary Clinton kept the foundation at arm’s length while in office—as obvious ethical standards would have dictated—there would never have been any need for a private server, or even private email. The vast majority of her electronic communications would have related to her job at the State Department, with maybe that occasional yoga schedule. And those Freedom of Information Act officers would have had little difficulty—when later going through a state.gov email—screening out the clearly “personal” before making her records public. This is how it works for everybody else.

Virtuous Racism

A man should, whatever happens, keep to his own caste, race and breed.
Let the White go to the White and the Black to the Black.
Rudyard Kipling (Beyond the Pale, in Plain Tales From the Hills)

Racism is defined as the belief that a particular race is superior to another. Thus, a person who believes that it is better that Germany, say, is populated mainly by Germans, rather than by, say, Syrians or Chinese is a racist since they are saying that a German is better than a Syrian or a Chinese, at least in Germany.

The Chinese and the Syrians, of course, think Chinese or Syrians, as the case may be, are better in China or Syria. In fact, that's how the great majority of people in any country think. Only bigots like Hillary Clinton, Tony Blair, and Angela Merkel apply the perjorative term "racist" to people who believe in the preservation of their own kind, their own legal and religious traditions, and their own culture.

Birmingham New St. School: These are lovely children, but nearly all are immigrants or the children of immigrants, the indigenous population of England having been slated by a treasonous elite for minority status, along with English culture and eventually perhaps even the English common law. Today, in Birmingham, England's second city, English elementary school children are not even the largest minority ethnic group. Click to enlarge (Image source)



The racism of those who seek to preserve their own cultural and racial identities is in stark opposition to the globalist project to make the European peoples minorities in their own homes through a combination of policies that suppress the reproduction of the indigenous people while bringing about mass replacement immigration. In Britain, this project has already achieved its objective in London, Luton, Leicester, as in many other urban areas in Britain, the European mainland, and the United States too.

Canada's Ponzi Economy and the Vancouver Housing Market

For details and an interactive map go here
Here's a map showing the proportion of Vancouver residents who are financially qualified to purchase a median priced home. The areas shaded in pale yellow, i.e., most of the map on the West side of town, indicate where less than 20% of households are so qualified.

It reminds me of 1986 when we planned on moving from the West Coast to Toronto. House prices in Toronto were on a crazy roll. Inventory was almost non-existent, and most of the houses that were for sale looked as though they were occupied by the kind of people who couldn’t possibly afford to buy a house for the kind of money their house was priced at.

But think about this. In 1972, we contemplated buying a house in the 4700 block of Vancouver's W 2nd Avenue, which was priced at $189 K. In the 46 years since then, that house has appreciated (according to the BC Assessment Authority) over 62 times to almost $12 million. That’s equivalent to a 500,000% increase per century. Does that sound like hyper-inflation?

Yet if real mortgage rates go negative, who’s to say prices cannot still sky-rocket!

Still, I don’t think things can go on as they have. In the short-run perhaps, but in the long-run, the trend for a huge and increasing proportion of income to be devoted to the payment of rent, either to landlords, or as interest on mortgages to banks, cannot continue. More capital has to go into productive sectors of the economy that generate real wealth, as opposed to capital gains on real estate which are in reality generational wealth transfers.

Of course I’m not complaining. Since the early 70's, our house (not in Vancouver) has appreciated about four times faster than wages, so when it is sold it should reap a windfall for someone — my estate I suppose — of around a million dollars (that's if I die soon, much more, on current trends, if I die later), the gain to be at the expense of the poor folks who will have to pay the mortgage on that amount.

Does that sound reasonable and fair? Will Canadians for ever put up with a Ponzi economy that punishes young adults most, i.e., young folks entering the RE market? It's great, I suppose, if you want to perpetuate the failure of Canadians, a tiny population occupying half a continent, to fully reproduce themselves (but that's another matter).

Question is, how did we get to the present state of the economy and how could that state be changed?

Steve Keen, and others outside the bubble of Nobel-Prize-winning bullshit economics, have well revealed the pathologies of the FIRE economy that has dominated the West since the drive for globalization went into high gear in 1994. That was the year Bill Clinton signed the GATT agreement, a treaty that exposed US labor to unrestricted competition from workers of the Third World earning less than 5% of US wages.

As American and other Western workers affected by the new wave of globalization became increasingly uncompetitive in the internationally tradable sectors of the economy, they made up for the short-fall in income by taking on ever increasing amounts of debt, the debt bubble continually stimulated by declining interest rates (now absurdly entering negative territory), and money creation, mainly by private institutions.

The question is, what to do to reverse this trend and stimulate wealth creating investment?

The answer, obviously, is to redirect capital from consumption and speculative investments in a Ponzi economy into productive activities. Trouble is, Western governments are all owned by the banks and other financial corporations that reap the profits of the debt-based economy and see less opportunity for profit from investment in productive endeavors than in driving asset bubbles.

So what to do? A lynching or two might help. At least the total public humiliation of scoundrel politicians such as Blair and Brown and Cameron, the Bush’s and the Clinton’s who do the bidding of the corporate elite (for pay) would be a start, so the ongoing public humiliation of Hillary, a life-long liar and swindler, is an encouraging start. A war crimes trial for Bush and Blair would be another step in the right direction. Publicly debagging some Central Bankers, past and present, would be a good idea too.

How Hillary Claims to Have Been Duped By Dubya's Preposterous Lies for War With Iraq



Amazing, really, that a candidate for the US Presidency in 2016 would claim to have been duped by Dubya's 2003 lies in justification of the criminal war of imperialistic aggression against Iraq.

At the time, I didn't believe a word of what we now know for absolute certainty to have been a stream of lies for war from Bush and Blair and their media accomplices, the New York Times (remember the scare about Saddam's aluminum tubes), WaPo, Fox News and the British Broadcorping Castration (remember Saddam's drones of death that would spread plague across the Western world), etc., etc. Neither did my old school bud, the late Postman Patel, aka Edward Teague, believe the obvious rubbish and lies propagated by the political class and the media to justify an war of aggression against Iraq.

In a precient essay he wrote about the, then, forthcoming Iraq war for my old Web site, the Canadian Spectator, Edward accurately predicted the disaster that the Iraq war would become:
What is uncertain is the aftermath. This is the variable never publicly factored into the thinking(?) of the Tony Sopranos of Dubya's gang; their deeds plant the seeds of future, furious, frightening resistance. As many as half a million Iraqi soldiers may be intentionally killed and perhaps 100,000 civilians written off to collateral damage. Think of the grief of millions after this slaughter, the conversion of that grief into rage, combine that with the internecine struggles based on historical ethnic fault lines (that the Ba'ath Party has repressed), and we begin to appreciate the explosive complexity of post-invasion Iraq.
In fact, this was not genius. It was just rational thinking that no doubt also underlay the war planning at the Pentagon and the White House. But acknowledging the truth about America's imperialistic wars of aggression can never be admitted. American foreign policy requires a bodyguard of lies and liars, which means that American politics now depends on the maintenance of an ever growing body of lies through the election of career liars such as the Bush's and the Clinton's aided by the ever mendacious corporate media oligopoly.

The American Republic, RIP.

Time Is Neither Absolute Nor Does It Flow Equably, But It Does Flow

Absolute, true and mathematical time, of itself, and from its own nature flows equably without regard to anything external, and by another name is called duration: relative, apparent and common time, is some sensible and external (whether accurate or unequable) measure of duration by the means of motion, which is commonly used instead of true time ...Isaac Newton
Things always change, as do we ourselves, in our perceptions, our beliefs, our social life, our mortal frame, the latter ultimately to be with clay compounded, or as a plume of smoke and a heap of ashes dispersed.

Why the Left Abandoned the Workers to Serve the Money Power

Over on Ron Unz's Review, Professor Paul Craig Roberts argues for a return of the left to its traditional role in serving the interests of working people. This, however, is a pipe dream. The last time the left mattered in the Western world, or indeed had any reality, was in the late 60's, the era of Lyndon Baines Johnson, Harold Wilson and Gough Witlam. Then followed the times of Richard Nixon, Ted Heath and Malcolm Fraser, when the new globalization took off.

Image source.

In the late sixties, the left in the Anglo world still had political power, which was exercised through left-associated political parties, i.e., the US Democratic Party, Britain’s Labour Party, Canada’s New Democratic Party and Australia's Labour Party. Such influence depended in large part on the financial support and intellectual resources that  that labor unions provided left-wing parties.

From Brexit to Eurasian Integration?

Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland;
who rules the Heartland commands the World-Island;
who rules the World-Island commands the world.

Halford John Mackinder
Britain's new Prime Minister, Teresa May, who campaigned against Brexit in the June referendum, is in no hurry it seems, to execute the will of the British people to quit the EU. Rather, her government has indicated that it will take its time, up to three years, to act upon the will of the people.

If a week in politics is a long time, three years is an eternity, during which the direction of any government may rotate one hundred and eighty degrees multiple times. Thus one explanation for Ms. May's slow mo approach to Brexit is that she has no intention of going through with the process, but as we posited the other day, seeks rather to defeat the will of the people by avoiding Brexit altogether.

But this explanation for the UK Government's tardiness in implementing Brexit is not as compelling as it may at first appear. The EU, after all, is moribund, with most of its constituent nations resentful of the way that Germany, the EU's industrial power house, has prospered while ruthlessly imposing austerity on the EU's weaker members. Moreover, the weakness at the periphery of the Eurozone is a direct result of the strength at the center. The Euro, being under-priced relative to the productivity of Germany's workforce, has strongly stimulated the German economy, whereas it has more or less severely retarded the economies of other EU nations, where workforce productivity is lower, or much lower, than Germany's.

The economic difficulties of much of the EU combined with the widespread disgust at Ms. Merkel's enthusiasm for flooding Europe with millions of young, aggressive Muslim males suggest that the EU is now in a condition similar to that of the no less democratic Soviet Union at the moment of its of implosion.

Why then would Ms. May, apparently an astute politician, decline the opportunity that the Brexit vote provides to abandon a sinking ship?

The answer, surely, is to be found in geopolitics. If Britain were to exit the EU tomorrow, which it undoubtedly could, its relations with the United States would require drastic revision. As a member of the EU, Britain has a special relationship with the US. It is a convenient location for many American corporations doing business in Europe, and serves, by virtue of the "special relationship," as an agent of influence for the United States within the EU. Outside the EU, however, Britain is of rather little consequence to the US except as an unsinkable aircraft carrier, within striking range of Russia, North Africa and the Middle-East. In other words, outside the EU, Britain's value to the US becomes chiefly that of a military base, a European off-shore island under military occupation.

What then should Ms. May do?

Under the circumstances, the time is clearly ripe for a total reconsideration of the administrative structure, and economic and military relations of both the UK and the EU. The prospect of the imminent implosion of the EU must surely have concentrated the minds of a formerly complacent EU elite. The anti-nationalist policies of the EU are loathed and despised by all but the most brainwashed of the European population, while the anti-Russian policies forced upon the EU by the United States are resented by the business class for the damage they do to multiple industries from agriculture and tourism to engineering and the military industrial complex.

The remedy for Europe thus seems clear: change sides in the New Cold War. That means calling a new world into existence — the Eurasian World — to redress the balance of the old. Russia is back as a world power. Only a lunatic or totally enslaved Europe will wage war against Russia for the benefit of American global domination. Rather, Europe has no rational foreign and economic policy other than Eurasian integration: a free-trade zone and security zone from Atlantic to Pacific based on Russian resources and defense and space technology; European capital, science and advanced technology; the vast human capital of Asia; these linked by the new Silk Roads, Rails and Pipelines.

Domestically, the European nations must restore their democracies, drive out alien ideologies from political correctness to Islamic fundamentalism, while restoring the vitality of their indigenous populations and cultures.

The result?

One hundred years of peace, perhaps, during during which we might figure out how to rid the world of weapons of mass destruction, live in balance with the environment, and devise a long-term future for humanity.

Why Do Liberals Promote Diversity? Because They Hate It

Malcolm Pollack has a sharp comment about liberal humbug on the question of human racial diversity.

Liberals have long denied the reality of race, gleefully dismissing any who disagree with them as racists. I say gleefully, thinking in particular of liberals in the EU, where the expression of racist ideas is a criminal offense punishable by imprisonment.

But now the trouble for liberals, as Pollack notes, is that there are too many scientifically literate people exposing the obvious stupidity of denying that human groups differ in heritable characteristics — like West Africans, for example, being (some of them) very fast runners compared with the rest of humanity; or Australian Abos. having an exceptionally large visual cortex, which correlates with a superior capacity for finding one's way in the bush.

Fixing Brexit: Defeating the Will of the British People

It seemed strange to me that after Prime Minister David Cameron, an opponent of Brexit, resigned following the victory of the Outs in the Brexit referendum, the governing Conservative party chose Teresa May, one of the Ins, as its new leader.

Stranger still, it seemed to me, that almost immediately after become Prime Minister, Teresa May decided to go to Switzerland for a couple of weeks "holiday."

Really? I mean, if she's so weak that merely being appointed Prime Minister necessitates a holiday, what use is she?

But then the question naturally arises, what discussions, negotiations, or deals might more easily be conducted during a two-week-long foreign holiday, than while resident at her official Downing St. home in London. Could it be that Ms. May is working to betray the people and reverse the Brexit decision?

More About the Art Students Who Occupied the Eleventh Floor of the North Tower of the WTC

What are the odds that an avant garde Austrian art group was given access to the 91st floor of the North Tower of the World Trade Center to remove windows, erect platforms outside the structure and leave material that could only be viewed by a close passing helicopter on a clear day? Well they are 100%.

What are the odds the art troupe are named after an explosive called Gelatin? What are the odds this group is sponsored by a cultural group who has an Israeli agent as a member who lived blocks from Mohammed Atta the terrorist who hated modern art and crashed an aircraft into it? Well they are 100%.

What are the odds that the markings on the cases that lined the walls of the space they were using were the same markings used for a special fuse holder assembly that allows for complex wiring? Well they are 100% too.

What are the odds the New York Times actually published a full page feature in August even showing pictures of the artists at work? Yes 100%.

At the same time there was another group of artists in occupation at the WTC. Their name? the E-Team. And they made no secret of their presence:


So there were two groups of artists occupying the World Trade Center just before 9/11: one with a special interest in explosives, the other apparently made up of electricians. An ideal combination, really, if you wanted to bring the building down in a controlled demolition.

ABC Live Poll: Donald Trump 68%, Hillary Clinton 6%

ABC's online poll, with over 86,000 votes recorded shows Hillary nowhere, Trump leading with two thirds of the votes cast. However the poll is now reported to be a hoax. Still the alleged poll results are consistent with the attendance at Clinton and Trump rallies, see  photos published on LiveLeak and below.

And here's an amazingly simple means of running an honest election as outlined on the LiveLeak page linked above:

Calling Trump a Racist Only Makes Supporters More Committed

Why The Media Disinformation Campaign Against Trump Will Fail
The .. fact .. is that this is still a very close race and the media is falling over themselves to try and trip up Donald. The same tactics were employed in the primary by 17 very qualified opponents, and all I really need to say is—where are they today?

It is interesting that the media is now taking an “All of the above” approach to their endless attacks... Gone are the blanket recitations of “Trump is a racist” or “Trump is a sexist.” Instead, the media is employing a tactic the Marines refer to as “spray and pray.” They don’t have any specific targets, but they know they are cornered, so they are wildly swinging about with their finger down on the full auto trigger. ...

Why Old People Can Be Great Leaders

Scott Adams, the creator of the Dilbert cartoon strip, has written a series of blog posts about the US Presidential election. In his current post he argues that whoever wins, Hillary or Donald, will be a bad president because they are too old for the job.

Being a bit older than Scott Adams, and older even than both Trump and Clinton, I have, perhaps, some qualification to comment on this theory, which in my view is mistaken. But before considering the question on the basis of any theoretical consideration or my personal experience of age, what of the historical evidence?

Consider Prince Mikhail Kutuzov, appointed Commander in Chief of the Russian Army as Napoleon embarked on the invasion of Russia in 1812. Aged 67, grossly overweight, within months of death from natural causes, Kutuzov ordered Russian forces to retreat in the face of the enemy, burning crops and grain stores as they went. Suffering from narcolepsy, Kutuzov had to be tied to his horse to prevent him falling off when he drowsed. Periodically, his staff officers would wake him and ask "what now," to which he would reply "continue the retreat."

Obama’s Cash Payment to Iran Was More Than a Ransom — It Broke Criminal Law

By Andrew McCarthy

National Review August 6, 2016: Did it ever occur to President Obama to ask why he couldn’t just cut a check to the Iranian regime?

Outrage broke out this week over the revelation that Obama arranged to ship the mullahs piles of cash, worth $400 million and converted into foreign denominations, reportedly in an unmarked cargo plane. The hotly debated question was whether the payment, which the administration attributes to a 37-year-old arms deal, was actually a ransom paid for the release of American hostages Tehran had abducted.

It is a waste of time to debate that point further. The Iranians have bragged that the astonishing cash payment was a ransom — and Obama has been telling us for months that we can trust the Iranians. The hostages were released the same day the cash arrived. One of the hostages has reported that the captives were detained an extra several hours at the airport and told they would not be allowed to leave until the arrival of another plane — inferentially, the unmarked cargo plane ferrying the cash. The reason American policy has always prohibited paying ransoms to terrorists and other abductors is that it only encourages them to take more hostages. And, as night follows day, Iran has abducted more Americans since Obama paid the cash. No matter how energetically the president tries to lawyer the ransom issue, if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck . . . More worth examining is why the transaction took the bizarre form that it did. To cut to the chase, I believe it was to camouflage — unsuccessfully — the commission of felony law violations.

10 Facts the Mainstream Media Won’t Tell You About the War in Syria

Yesterday, on the radio, I heard Obarmy lying copiously about Syria and the evil of Assad and Putin, so it is with pleasure that I reproduce the following item from Information Clearing House.

Another listener nauseated by Obama's lying spiel was Paul Craig Roberts: "It sickens me to hear the President of the United States lie and construct a false reality..." Roberts' further reaction to the comments of the Liar-In-Chief, entitled Behold, a Pale Horse and its Rider’s Name Was Death, appears here.

By Darius Shahtahmasebi

August 04, 2016 "Information Clearing House" - "Anti Media" - Corporate media regularly attempts to present Bashar al-Assad’s government in Syria as solely responsible for the ongoing conflict in the region. The media does report on events that contradict this narrative — albeit sparingly — but taken together, these underreported details shine a new light on the conflict.

Making Britain Not Great Through Chinese Government Ownership of British Electrical Utilities

Britain was great when it owned much of the world, drawing interest from foreign government bonds and dividends on shares in foreign railways, plantations and factories.

Today, China wants to invest in Britain, over one hundred billion pounds in the next few years, according to President Xi, all of which, Xi threatens, will be jeopardized if Britain nixes a Chinese-financed nuclear power plant just up-wind of London.

During the 19th Century, the Brits and other Western nations bullied and exploited China outrageously, and President Xi no doubt relishes the prospect of pay-back. But the West is not finished yet and it is clearly time for Britain's new PM to prove her metal by telling President Xi to go piss up a rope.

Teresa May to Nuke Cameron's Insane Nuclear Power Deal?

Britain's female rulers from Boadicea (or Boudica with a hard 'C', as scholars insist) to Good Queen Bess, and Margaret Thatcher have been pretty much like the majority of their male counterparts — but with balls.

One can only hope that Teresa May, Britain's latest female leader, conforms to type.

To date, she has shown promise by, among other things, telling the Scotch Nats. to forget about another referendum, confirming that having nuclear weapons means being willing to use them, and threatening to nuke the nuke power deal agreed by her predecessors, the schoolboy prime minister, David Cameron, and his playboy finance minister, George Osborne.

The Dopiness of the Harvard Economist: People Won't Vote As We Tell Them

Globalization is good,

GLOBALIZATION IS VERY GOOD,

GLOBALIZATION IS ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT,

dammit.

How often does a Harvard Economist have to say that before people give up their petty attachment to their native race and culture, their selfish desire to keep Britain British, to preserve Europe's Christian tradition, or America, American?

Millions of times, according to Greg Mankiw, of Princeton, MIT and Harvard, and chairperson of the economic advisers to President Dumbya Bush.
