  • Now Official - Almost Any Government Agency Can break the Law with Impunity

    2021-03-04

    Back in December we reported that the Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill 2019/21 was wending its way through Parliament.

     

    Today we report that it has received the Royal Assent and is now law.

  • Our Government's Covid Abuse Programme?

    2021-03-03

    Lockdown Sceptics continue the theme that we are in an abusive relationship with our government. The behaviours exhibited are typically assumed to be relevant in a domestic household situation, often but not always between partners and spouses.

    We have explored this notion before, but it is good to remind ourselves occasionally of what is very evidently still going on.

    As "case" numbers fall through the floor and hospital admissions begin to dry up, how much longer will this go on? Presumably until the population at large comes to its senses and says enough is enough.

  • So What Exactly Is Covid-19?

    2021-03-02

    Is it a bird? Is it a 'plane? Is it a weird tennis ball with knobs on?

    No it's a virus! Or so we are assured by those who claim to know. Indeed also by those who demand our subservience to their many and ever-changing diktats.

    The same people incidentally that assure us equally firmly that vaccines were the undoubted cause of the health improvements in the general population observed during the 20th century just gone. Since this is the overwhelming consensus of all the official health bodies world-wide, we are to believe them, and yet . . .  science does not normally advance through consensus (ask Albert Einstein).

    In fact, consensus can be thought to be a block to scientific advance. Because so many of those who need to be convinced of a different and better understanding have made significant personal investments in that consensus, they are understandably reluctant to challenge it. Bearing in mind the many $billions (more probably $trillions or even

  • The Texan Snow that Didn't Melt?

    2021-03-01

    We all read about the severe weather conditions in Texas recently, and we may have noticed various reports that this "snow" didn't melt when exposed to a flame (but did blacken). But I notice that like snow everywhere, after a few days it disappeared.

    So was there any reality to this odd story? I don't know, but in view of the considerable belief that man-made weather does in fact occur all over the world (floods in China etc) maybe it's worth some consideration.

    The USA Watchdog site has the story.

  • South Dakota Governor Speaks to CPAC

    2021-02-28

    Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota reviews South Dakota's reaction to the Covid emergency:

    "Covid didn't crush the economy - Government crushed the economy"

    "South Dakota is the only state in America that never ordered a single business or church to close, we never instituted a shelter-in-place order, we never mandated that people wear a mask, we never even defined what an "essential business" is because I don't believe that the governors have the authority to tell you that your business isn't essential"

    "In South Dakota I provided all of the information that we had to our people, and then I trusted them to make the best decisions for themselves, for their families, and in turn their communities"

    "Dr Fauci told me that on my worst day I would have 10,000 patients in my hospitals - on our worst day, we had a little over 600"

    The Psychology of Bad Politicians

    2021-02-27

    This is a must-view for those of us who realise that politicians are not representing our interests, and would  like to understand why it is that such politicians appear fickle, incompetent, even venal (and I hasten to add that not all politicians fit this alarming profile, just that too many do).

    I am not suggesting that this video has all the answers.

    Firstly it is US-centric, which is actually useful in so far as we perhaps don't already have such an emotional reaction to US as we do to UK politics, so we may be better positioned to adopt an impartial viewpoint.

    Secondly it is firmly grounded in what I will call the mistakes of US politics - although UK, European, Indian, Chinese etc politics do have their differences, human beings are common to them all, so there is also a great deal of commonality across the nations, since politics could be described as essentially the art of government at all its different levels.

  • James Corbett on the Trump-Biden Conundrum

    2021-02-26

    James Corbett of the Corbett Report delivers a very well-constructed review of the Trump presidency and how it fits within the American (global?) "democratic" system.

    What was the point of Trump? Was he the man to fix the system and "drain the swamp", or was he the necessary distraction that enabled those behind the scenes to take the world into the next phase of their plan for our dystopian future?

    James brings a welcome forensic analysis of past pronouncements and events that gives real pause for thought, building a convincing case that Trump was not the man that many hoped (and prayed) he would be:

  • From House of Chaos to House of Complacency

    2021-02-24

    During Mrs May's tenure, the House of Commons became the house of chaos as opposing factions seemingly bent every rule in the book and every  convention in Parliament in a futile bid to overturn the verdict of the People without taking the blame for so doing. The squabbling and scheming reached epic levels and the cartoonists (to misapply a quote from Harold Macmillan) had "never had it so good".

    Contrast that with the current state of play where Boris and Matt get by without bothering to present their diktats in the House, Her Majesty's loyal opposition is so loyal that it only ever argues for the restrictions to be tighter, and with very few honourable exceptions no serious attempt is made to do anything other than tow the party line and support the government.

  • The Abyss of Infinite Lunacy

    2021-02-23

    Professor Saad may not be a familiar name but Peter Whittle has done us all a service by featuring him on "So What You're Saying Is...".

    As an evolutionary psychologist he doesn't fall neatly into any of our normal categories, and as an academic one wonders, given his forthright views, how he has managed to survive without being cancelled, but he does share an interesting explanation of his longevity, an explanation which perhaps more of us need to emulate.

    Oh, and he's very entertaining with it :)

  • Ben Habib Launches Lawfare over the NI Protocol

    2021-02-22

    Ben Habib explains what he is up to - he is taking Boris to task for the Northern Ireland protocol that is currently dividing the Union.

    Today we are writing to the Prime Minister. This government is driving a coach & horses through the Act of Union. We have no option but to take legal action

    Whilst it's good to see initiatives like this that take the preservation of the Union very seriously, surely the point is that Parliament should be taking the lead here?

    The very fact that politicians are now resorting to legal action speaks volumes about the fiction that Parliament is composed of those who represent the views of the people.

  • Bitcoin - Trick or Treat?

    2021-02-22

    Bitcoin recently appreciated significantly when Elon Musk bought a vast tranche.

    Since then it's seemingly done nothing but go up in value. So what to do - is it about to collapse or will it go on up for ever and make its owners extravagantly wealthy?

    I have read many articles on crypto but I have not invested any actual money as yet. Should I now break the conservative habit and buy in?

    Catherine Austin Fitts gives us a wholly different take on what is going on here, and I suspect that her analysis will come as something of a surprise to many.

    She succeeds in relating the financial elements to  our real-life needs and experience, as well as to the global political and financial situation - she paints a very complete picture.

  • Zero Covid - Coming Soon?

    2021-02-21

    This utterly preposterous idea is, believe it or not, seriously being touted by those who think they can bully or manipulate us into accepting whatever they say as the gospel truth - or at any rate a plausible alternative to it.

    The AIER now feels compelled to take this absurd threat seriously, not because it has any merit, but because the associated politics has all the hall-marks of a totalitarian agenda that they would steamroller across the world whether we the people want it or not.

  • The Good Law Project Wins PPE Procurement Case against Government

    2021-02-21

    The BBC reports:-

    "Matt Hancock acted unlawfully when his department did not reveal details of contracts it had signed during the Covid pandemic, a court has ruled"

    When the Covid pandemic struck the government allegedly threw all its normal procurement processes out of the window as it seemingly fell over itself to place orders for PPE.

    Many questioned the rationale for placing such orders with suppliers who appeared to be manifestly unsuitable under all normal sourcing criteria, but in any event the government was still under a legal obligation to publish details of its procurements within 30 days after the event.

    It appears that this obligation was not fulfilled.

  • The Covid "Fraud Triangle" Hypothesis

    2021-02-21

    For those of us who still wonder why seemingly all previously accepted tenets of epidemiological, medical, statistical and governmental good practice were promptly thrown out of the window a year ago, possibly never to return in our life-times, Lockdown Sceptics take the bull by the horns and introduce the hitherto unmentionable (in gentlemanly circles) idea there might be a motivation in fraud.

    Personally I think this idea is long overdue an outing - any rational enumeration of the possible causes of the current imbroglio must include fraud on the list, and given what we know about human nature, it seems ridiculous that this possibility should be excluded from investigation merely on the grounds that somebody somewhere may think it to be in bad taste.

    Logic is impervious to taste, and as far as I know bad taste has never been known as a sure preventative of criminal

  • US states taking steps to nullify ALL of Joe Biden’s unconstitutional laws and executive orders

    2021-02-21

    It seems that North Dakota is following in the footsteps of South Dakota in seeking to ensure that no Federal laws or Executive Orders that they deem to conflict with the US Constitution will be respected.

    Whilst legally arguably superfluous, this will make it much easier for such unconstitutional measures to be disregarded since such action would be much less likely to result in a lawsuit.

    Natural News has the story.

    Once more we can see the strength of the decentralised American model where the powers of the federal centre are strictly limited by the constitution, thus ensuring that each state retains autonomy in its own affairs.

    I can't help but wonder if there is a lesson (or several) for the future of the UK in there somewhere?

  • Financial / Geopolitical Review - Matt Ehret and RDS

    Robert David Steele is a very well-informed and assertive individual (who I think could learn to interrupt a little less frequently) and Matt Ehret is a Canadian who seems to be enormously well read in geopolitics and its history.

    They make up  formidable duo.

    Here they discuss the causes of the current financial/geopolitical state of the world, and very interesting they are.

  • Texas Freezes!

    2021-02-19

    Texas freezes in the grip of very unaccustomed sub-zero temperatures, accompanied by widespread electricity black-outs as the power grid effectively collapses due to inadequate supply.

    Wind turbines are frozen stiff, solar panels snowed over, natural gas coal and nuclear generation are maxed out but nowhere near making up the loss of renewables.

    Oh, and the planners didn't plan for unusual but not unprecedented severe winter weather.

    Doesn't that sound a bit like the UK?

     

    Sounds like just the same green energy planning mindset as in the UK.

    2021-02-19

    Lock-downs were instituted in the West when Neil Ferguson infamously predicted some wildly improbable death tolls if they were not. Notoriously, Sweden did not follow that advice, and lived to tell the tale.

    Ivor Cummins (of Fat Emperor Podcast fame) has given us the list of published papers which investigate whether lock-downs have worked.

    So don't hang back - plunge in!

     

    Of course Ivor is not the only one to have reviewed the literatures and identified similar papers.

  • Our Kids Are Just Collateral Damage

    2021-02-19

    I am greatly blessed to live in rural Hampshire, but that makes it easy to forget that many others are not so blessed.

    This video is a compendium of a small subset of the collateral damage, the subset that has children who cannot go to school, who are stuck at home with a parent, who have no friends to visit and no parties to be invited to.

    Kids are by nature resilient but there is a limit to their resilience when the oppression is never-ending - and we all know their tolerance of delay from the infamous question "are we nearly there yet?".

    Anna Brees has done us a service to release this small glimpse of misery on behalf of all the many who are similarly suffering. I hope some representative of "authority" is listening.

  • World Politics and the Distortion of Science for Political Ends

    2021-02-17

    When I was a schoolboy in the 1960s I was aware of Bertrand Russell as a prominent and opinionated leftie, but not being inclined in that direction I ignored him as being of no interest.

    Big mistake. Know thine enemy.

    Matthew Ehret (AKA the Canadian Patriot) has opened my eyes to his pernicious influence, influence which (whilst no doubt assisted by many others) seems to have now led us to the perversion of science known as the pandemic.

    That this perversion exists is not news to me, but that it had its roots so far back in history (and probably Russell was not the first to promote
