I still refrain from pontificating on the goings-on in Afghanistan as I am not qualified so to do, but the AIER have published an interesting perspective on the factors that may have enabled the Taliban's rapid and seemingly more-or-less unopposed advance.
This doesn't do much to enlighten us on how things may unfold from here, but perhaps it may explain the seemingly enduring popularity of Islamic governments in this part of the world, and why such still seem to be preferred to governments instituted by either Eastern or Western alien powers.
Did the Afghans see their opportunity once more to decisively remove an externally imposed government that was not to their liking, in favour of a group of their own nationals with whom they felt more at ease?
I'm not going to comment on the Afghan situation beyond asking how much of what is being reported we can believe - I simply don't know.
Still, this is an offering from Sky News Australia which I think has carved out a relatively independent line for itself over recent times at least - make of it what you will:

I'm thinking that we all remember the government campaign last January featuring full-page advertisements in national and local press showing big pictures of distressed patients in breathing masks, and making what many believe is a wholly unfounded assertion that "1 in 3 people who have Covid-19 have no symptoms and are spreading it without knowing".
I think there cannot be anybody in the Kingdom that did not see this campaign. I even complained to the Advertising Standards Authority about it (and two months later received a long-winded generic reply that studiously avoided addressing the precise point that I made, which was that the claim of asymptomatic transmission on that scale had no foundation in science).
This campaign was clearly an unprincipled attempt to scare us all into submission by using emotional blackmail.
I wasn't by myself in this thinking. Dr Gary Sidley and others wrote to the British Psychological Society in January to...
This is a report from the USA of one family's experience getting treatment for pneumonia.
I don't doubt that this is not typical of the UK NHS hospitals.
However, this is a story that bears viewing as it illustrates the dangers of simply accepting the treatment offered on the basis that "doctor knows best".
When it gets so stupid that medical staff insist on treating a disease that has a recovery rate greater than 99.9% (if you are not already aged or immune-compromised) as if it's the bubonic plague, then it's time to get involved, as simple logic has clearly flown out of the window.
The above was a personal experience, the below is a discussion between experts that includes some startling assertions:
A well-argued and slightly unorthodox view-point ...
"... isn't that almost a peaceful revolution..."
"... they took over the country without any resistance... "
So what happened in 2015?
"... they want to have a reason... why we cannot deport people who... became criminals... "
"... why more immigrants should be accepted..."
Sounds familiar somehow.
Police pepper-spraying their citizens for their health...
Firing rubber bullets...
"the numbers only seem to be growing..."
"Melbourne has been in lock-down for over 200 days..."
Residents explain what's going on there - quarantine "facilities" prepared...
... all for 490 "cases" in a population of 25 million?
Piers is an unlikely combination - a man who has involved himself in both politics and climate, as a long range weather forecaster, and lately as a persistent voice popping up to criticise the official narratives put out by the government and their media companies.
So he has been well-placed to assess the "science" behind the climate change scenario and to relate it to the political situation.
This is fifty minutes of practical good sense.
"there's not a single scientific paper in the world that's using real measured data... shows that CO2 levels control temperatures in any way - all the data shows the other way round"
"world temperatures have been going down for the last five years"
"fake science requires an end of democracy to succeed"
"Goebbels would be proud of Boris...
One of the iron rules of IT systems is eloquently and succinctly stated:
"Garbage in, Garbage out"
It's a truism that applies more widely, and perhaps we should be removing our trusting blinkers more frequently and subjecting a great deal more of what is reported to us as "science" to some searching scrutiny. This is after all the very foundation of good scientific method, in acknowledgement of the propensity of humanity in all innocence to make mistakes.
The Daily Sceptic has been scrutinising the latest Oxford Vaccine Effectiveness Study.
If like me you have begun to feel confused by the apparently conflicting effectiveness results reported by so many different sources from many different arenas, then this little exercise in critical scrutiny is...
This site has made no secret of the fact that the government's intention to jab everyone down eventually to babes in arms before Christmas (I'm extrapolating here, but only to be consistent with recent history) cannot under any version of arithmetic known to man be justified.
It's as stark as that.
TCW (formerly known as "Conservative Woman") crunches the numbers available and comes to much the same conclusion.
Add in the now admitted truth that the jabbed can still pass on the lurgy just as readily as the unjabbed and any semblance of reasoning behind this campaign has already flown right out of the wide open window.
All of which leaves us to speculate about why the...
The GWPF (Global Warming Policy Forum) thinks that it probably does. They believe that the government's prioritising of Wind and Solar renewables (both intermittent and inherently unreliable) over a robust combination of renewables underpinned by reliable thermodynamic power sources such as natural gas and nuclear, will likely cost the UK our geopolitical status, since the affordable and reliable availability of power underpins confidence in our economic and global leadership.
This is a concept that China and India, both intent on building more coal-fired power-stations, fully understand.
I would hesitate to place all our reliable power generation eggs in the nuclear basket however - whilst small modular reactors are fine in principle, Windscale is still home to ponds full of spent nuclear fuel that nobody seems either to know what to do with or to want to talk...
At this time of year, with the summer beginning to fade and the autumn, that season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, beckoning, many of us turn our thoughts to nature's bounty and wish that we were more knowledgeable about such matters.
Being as guilty as the next man of lacking any serious knowledge of our native seasonal resources, I am happy to feature the Sensory Solutions Blog as a small acknowledgement of my ignorance, in the hope that some may hereby be enticed into learning more about this fascinating subject.
Keeping well-grounded has never seemed more important than now, and the Seed Sistas offer us all a blend of practical mysticism that I find very appealing. More power to their elbow!
This Symposium took place on 29th and 30th of July, so yes, I'm a little late in the day with this one.
"Presented by Doctors for Covid Ethics and hosted by UK Column, the COVID-19 Interdisciplinary Symposium took place on July 29th and 30th"
29th July - Day 1:
Session 1 - The False Pandemic with Prof. Martin Haditsch and his discussion partners: Sucharit Bhakdi, Michael Palmer, Ulrike Kämmerer, Denis Rancourt, Harald Walach, Sam White, Thomas Binder, Charles Hoffe
Today's Daily Sceptic highlights an article by Dr James Alexander, who reviews the history of the Tory Party and proposes a way to relate it to the current corporate cronyism that masquerades as the Conservative Party to its somnolent voters.
Whilst I wouldn't necessarily agree with all aspects of his analysis (and I wasn't around in the 19th century so I can't vouch for the historical accuracy) I do think that the overall thrust of his argument is broadly valid - until he comes to "Court vs Country". These are I think not terms which in today's world have much currency - they hark back to past times no longer with us and to which most people do not relate.
So whilst he quite accurately notes:
"Johnson has presided over the establishment of an entirely technocratic politics of problem-and-solution which is, alas, not a...
Update - Additional claim made to the International Criminal Court for crime of Genocide against UK Government
Unity News Network today reports an updated request to the ICC in the Hague that they investigate certain members of the UK Government for complicity in "genocide, crimes against humanity, and breaches of the Nuremberg Code".
Their original request was acknowledged in April but has since been neither accepted nor rejected.
"Given the very substantial amount of new evidence and information that has come to light since we originally issued our Request in April, we made the decision to issue a further claim to the ICC"
"We are pleased to announce that we have now been joined by lawyers who have filed ICC Requests from Slovakia, France and the Czech Republic and on the 12th of August 2021, we sent a letter to the ICC requesting that we be allowed to submit a joint claim"
"... we have brought to the...
In this review of the pandemic, the unflappable Ivor Cummins walks us through the progress of the pandemic from the start through to the vaccines.

Succinct and unmissable.

It's like cycling in the hills - you crest one brow only to find another one looming right ahead.
The UK has (we trust finally) won the formal battle to leave the EU. The almost terminal political indigestion this caused to our ruling elites of all stripes will not be forgotten.
Now we have a clear view of the medical technocracy mountain right ahead in the shape of the UN/WHO/IPCC seemingly bent on world domination, and we are to be vaccinated with ever decreasingly effective pharmaceutical inventions until either we, or the multitudinous Covid variants, die of old age or worse.
And we have multiple versions of passport control in preparation internationally to ensure our compliance.
Clif High is somebody whose work we have featured before. Strangely, he bases his work on analysis of internet traffic - in other words, on good data.
He doesn't quite define what he means by "woo", but I would suggest an up-welling of popular view-point in response to their perception of the unfolding situation, namely, the collapse of the mainstream narrative under the weight of the state's lies and contradictions.
There are not many people who even pretend to undertake similar research, let alone those who can articulate his findings and place them within a historical perspective.
He also introduces a number of assumptions about the underlying causes with which you may be unfamiliar - work with him for a while if you can - he isn't necessarily talking about your views, he's talking about the views that have currency in the internet traffic.
Whether or not you agree with his viewpoints, he certainly provides...
Technocracy News and Trends publishes a stark and direct message to each one of us. The globalist technocrats (the WEF, the bankers, the major financial institutions, and those who pull the strings behind the scenes) have gone too far now to turn back, so they will double down on their efforts to control us.
Only the opposition of all the population acting in concert as individuals can turn the tide, by simply refusing to comply, and refusing to discipline others who do not comply. Only the exercise of the individual will on a grand scale will defeat their plans.
This is the ultimate test of the power of the individual against the power of those who falsely claim to speak on behalf of the collective, and who thereby seek to impose their will on the collective.
The forces have been marshalled, the...
In this long-running case (we reported on it in January 2021) CHD and the EHT argued that the FCC had acted perversely and illegally in not updating their safety limits for EMF radiation (cell towers, wi-fi etc) to take account of more recently available evidence that such radiation can cause adverse health effects at limits far below the set guidelines.
The US election of 3rd Nov 2020 must be the most contentious election of the 21st Century.
The Arizona audit of the Maricopa County election has become infamous.
The reports from this forensic audit are now being released, and this presentation from Mike Lindell's Cyber Symposium brings us up to date.
The fate of the world may depend upon the results of the disputed US election - best to pay attention:
