Why The Intellectual Elitie Truly Despise The Lower Classes

Have you noticed that the professional hand wriners of the left have shifted their focus from 'the poor' to minorities. They did not succeed in abolishing poverty so whaty's going on? Simples. The intellectual left having elected themselves to speak for the poor found the poor were able to speakl for themselves and resented posh pokenoses pontification about matters of which understanding cannot be gained by reading books. This article exposes the hypocrisy of the left ...

Why The Intellectual Elitie Truly Despise People They Pretend To Care About

by Ian R Thorpe
3 May 2012

In his book The Intellectuals and The Masses: Pride and Prejudice Among the Literary Intelligentsia, 1880-1939 (review - Google Books) comments on the elitism and intellectual snobbery of leading left wing academics and writers from the late nineteenth to the mid twentieth century.

Professor Carey's book identifies modernism as a way of thinking born out of a snobbish revulsion among people in the higher levels of society to the spread of literacy and popular culture among the working classes. Modernism, Carey says, is less a cultural movement motivated by certain aesthetic and spiritual imperatives than a closing of ranks by social cabal. Its chief ambition is to exclude people from outside the cultural and intellectual elites from the enjoyment and understanding of culture, music, literature and such. To this end the self-appointed elitists of culture, commerce and politics may bask in their imagined superiority which is affirmed every time they look down from their lofty heights at 'the little people.'.

Or, to put it in a colloquial phrase we can easily tell the cultural value of a thing: If a lot of people like it, it must be crap. In this sense, modernism is fundamentally "antidemocratic" and quite possibly veering sharply towards a kind of fascism.

"Intellectuals could not, of course, actually prevent the masses from attaining literacy," Professor Carey explains. "But they could prevent them reading literature by making it too difficult for them to understand - and this is what they did. The early twentieth century saw a determined effort, on the part of the European intelligensia, to exclude the masses from culture."

Quite true. Most modern poetry that earns the acclaim of literature professors and the kind of critics who set the standards for this new elite is so deliberately obscure, so brutal in its torturing of language, as to defy any attempt to make sense of it. I am a fan of poetry and have seen my own published published and yet am mystified by the egomaniacal babbling of most modernists. Their work has no structure of theme, mostly it is a self indulgent experiment in analysing the poet's own psyche.

The literary experiments of Mallarme, Eliot, Joyce, Virginia Woolf and others of that ilk were undertaken not with the intention of communicating ideas to a wide audience or for any aesthetic or spiritual reason but simply as an exercise in obfuscation. Literature is not unique in this, who can make any sense of the "installations" of modern artists and what is the point of an artwork if it requires a thousand - word explanation to give the viewer a clue about that it illustrates? Literature, books and poetry, does hold a special place in the weaponry of the new elite. If we cannot read and comprehend we can do little else.Books and poetry have the ability to educate and entertain simultaneously. Who among us has not at some time in their live loved a poem as much for it's rhythm and use of language as for it's message or moral. Even if it is a Dr. Seuss rhyme, something like Green Eggs and Ham, or a bit of nonesense like Lewis Carrol's Jabberwocky, there is a love of words, rhythm and variation of pace and tone to be gained from them.

The new elite, the "progressives" as they like to style themselves, like to sneer at popular fiction. They are wrong, it is the literary fiction presented as having superior quality they should despise. People who followed Bernard Cornwell's "Sharpe" series will have not only learned about Wellington's Iberian Campaign against Napoleon Bonaparte's French Empire and about early nineteenth century weapons, military tactics and politics, they will have also been offered some insights into how ordinary people fared in that brutal war. Likewise the books of John Steinbeck give us a vivid picture of California in and just after the Great depression, delivering the message in a more engaging way than some weighty social history written by the type of person who would sneer at Steinbeck's populism.

For those who would rather get a broad picture of history from an enjoyable novel than a detailed but dry and dusty text book I can recommend Cornwell's books on the Hundred Years War, Harlequin or The Archer's Tale describing events leading to and the actual siege of Crécy and Azincourt obviously about the well known, thanks to Shakespeare, battle of Agincourt.

The left's social engineering programme goes back a long way. Early in the twentieth century, seeing that the enfranchisement of the working classes and women would create a voting bloc capable of swaying every election, those who perceived themselves part of the elite but who were regarded as inferior by the old aristocracy and "old money" made a concerted effort to infiltrate the new political movements that represented the lower classes with the aim of creating a new political hegemony, a political and academic class sustained in power by the massive electoral clout of working class votes.

Clearly the masses aren't uniformly dull witted although perhaps viewed from the ivory towers intellectuals place themselves in, it is easy to perceive uniformity where there is in fact rich diversity . Anyone who doubts this need only visit Wanlochhead in Scotland. but as that is a rather expensive exercise, I'll go into travelogue mode and give you the quick tour.

Pretty little Wanlockhead (link below) is the highest village in Scotland, in Dumfries and Galloway the tourist information tells us. Approach it on a sunny day and it looks delightful, the tiny white-painted cottages nestling in the among the hills by fast flowing burns of clear water, the fibrous grass cropped short by sheep that wander freely, knowing the sparse traffic poses no threat. The reason most people come here is to see the lead mining museum.

It is no good looking for the museum building as you enter the village though, you're already in it. No lead has been extracted from the local mines since the mid-20th century, even though rich seams of the stuff, and other minerals run through the bedrock. The seams are too deep even for modern technology to make them either economic or safe. All that Wanlockhead has left is its pub, and its heritage. Hardly anyone lives there any longer, and it relies on its status as a mining museum – run by a village consortium – to pull in tourists.

It is the best type of museum because rather than exhibits the infrastructure of that old life is all still there, intact. After taking a look at some of the cottages, decked out as they would have been in the early 18th, 19th and 20th centuries , visitors led by a guide whose accent was made for reading aloud the poetry of Robert Burns venture 150 yards into the mine. The guide's Scottish accent reverberates with indignation as he describes what conditions were like for the miners.

The men worked in this tunnel for 10 hours a day, six days a week were, in the early nineteenth century, paid £20 a year. From that they had to provide their own tools, their own explosives, even their own candles, so it was dark, very dark. They began their working lives at eight years old. Many of the miners died in accidents. Because the material mined was lead there was no risk of firedamp, the explosive gas feared by coal miners, but lead holds more stealthy dangers. The inhabitants of this early industrial Klondyke who survived accidents died of lead poisoning. In Wanlockhead, back then, a 35-year-old was very old man.

The early workers built the walls of their cottages from stone, freely available in this landscape. But they had to get permission to take the turf and the heather to put on a roof. That belonged to the estate. If the estate wanted you out, they had the right to burn you out by setting the roof on fire; the roof that belonged to them. Even as we mock the politically correct posturings of the modern left it does no harm to remember the type of treatment dealt out by the powerful that caused Trade Unionism and Socialist movements to come into existence. Then as now however the elite despised the lower orders and regarded them as pitiable imbeciles not capable of being educated, behaving in civilised ways or appreciating the finer things in life.

As we reflect on those things they bring us to the real reason for our coming here. What ought to be becoming clear is that far from the dull witted brutes their remote and aloof masters imagined them to be, these people possessed an astonishing resilience that, with the help of their Presbyterian faith enabled them to work together together in community whose spirit acted to mitigate the adversities that life flung at them and to aspire to change things for the better.

The best way to get a sense of this in Wanlockhead is to spend some time looking in the library, the second oldest miners' subscription library in the world. Its eclectic collection of books was assembled by men who lived and worked in appalling conditions, endured soul destroying poverty and died young. Against the odds they managed to set money aside for books and for a place where these books could be kept, read, and shared. The library building also hosted meetings of the village's silver band, its quoits club and its curling club. Literature, music, sport, leisure – all these were nurtured, and paid for, by the miners themselves. No government grants in those days but that worked in their favour. There was no Nanny State to tell them what to think, no patronising social workers to sap their get-up-and-go, you see. No welfare, no rights, no easy distractions to featherbed them all and make them indolent.

The books in the library tell us these uneducated miners took their autodidactism seriously. There is little of a frivolous nature and few novels. The tourist guide explains there were dire punishments for those who suggested the acquisition of books deemed unsuitable by the strict Protestant pastors who wielded the moral power in the village. She suggests that brave soul who argued for, and won the right to read The Origin of Species might have made a better living in a circus, putting his head in the lion's mouth.

It was not just in the reading tastes of Wanlockheafd's miners that we can observe the vast gulf between the actual lives of working class people and the assumptions of left wing intellectuals who self righteously set about "saving the masses from deprivation and despair." The evidence is everywhere. During the industrial revolution that caused a great shift from rural areas to the towns just as a new middle class sprang up, the bourgeoisie or lower middle class, so new sub classes of the working classes merged. One of these was what became known as "the aspirational working class". When the Labour politician Ernest Bevin (1881 - 1951) gave us the line "Poverty of aspiration leads to poverty of spirit," he was not talking about modern aspirations, to live in a bigger house or own a car (in his lifetime any car was a luxury for many) but of a more spiritual aspiration, to make oneself a better person either by learning, changing values or by being an active member of the community.

All through the stratified working class people were active, in politics, cultural activities, hobbies and by being members of clubs and churches. In my part of England there was a great musical tradition, the Brass Bands. These were established by workers in coal mines and cotton mills, often sponsored by the owners, and achieved an extraordinarily high level of musical excellence. These bands which played a mix of classical, church and traditional music, were part of the fabric of community. Brass Band concerts on the bandstand in the park or sometimes in the town square were free entertainment for families. Often the origins of the bands were reflected in the names, The Grimethorpe Colliery Band, The Leigh Miners Welfare Band and (I'm not kidding now) The Back Dyke Mills Band comprised of workers at Black Dyke Woollen Mills in Queensbury, Yorkshire. The mills are closed now but with the word Mills dropped from the name they continue, despite protests from the Politically Correct Thought Police as the Black Dyke Band, insisting that hey had the name before it meant anything else The British movie Brassed Off starring Ewan McGregor and the late Pete Postlethwaite, though it may be too left wing in its sentiments for some, tells of the role the Brass Band played in those small industrial communities.

There were other cultural cultural activities going on too. Even small town could claim several dramatic, operatic or choral societies, there were Scientific clubs that usually met in the Mechanics Hall or a function room in a Working Men's club to talk about the lastest developments in science and technology, groups for artists and photographers, football and cricket teams of various levels and of course the churches. And all were open to everybody regardless of income or education. Far from a brutish rabble who were condemned by their ignorance to live in misery and despair the working classes lived in a vibrant society. There were the drunks, gamblers and wasters of course, those things are part of life but for the most part, people understood that not everybody can be a doctor, lawyer, business owner, consultant, college lecturer or celebrity. They had the grace to accept their lot and just get on with making the best of the hand life dealt them. And what they hated far more than their bosses were the patronising paternaslistic lefties who presumed to tell them how they should live their lives.

Another illustration of this concerns literature. Music Hall comedians had long made fun of the industrial areas, the ugliness of the towns, the way soot from factory chimneys blackened everything, the strange, guttural accents that owe as much to the old Viking and Celtic languages as to The Queens English and to the fact that thanks to our Viking and Celtic heritage many northern place names just sound funny. Oswaldtwistle, Barnoldswick, Cleckheaton and Mytholmroyd could be names of places where goblins live but they are real (my wife was born in Oswaldtwistle.) however the ultimate joke town was Wigan. Wigan was synonymous with poverty, pies (meat and potato pies,the staple diet of mine amd mill workers) and a brand of daftness that owed more to unworldliness that stupidity. The best joke about Wigan was it's pier. To late Victorian and early twentieth century audiences the word pier conjured up images of the gaudy pleasure piers at costal resorts, cast iron structure built out over the sea where in season there was always some kind of show it the pavilion at the end and along the length of which fortune tellers, ice cream vendors, souvenir merchants, tattooed ladies and tacky freak shows were arrayed. Wigan, 40 miles inland, boasted no such attractions, the "pier" was a landing stage on the Leeds and Liverpool canal, an older useage of the word.

Wiganers took it in good part, and laughed at the jokes but the bohemian left of the metropolitan elite took it on board as literal truth. In the finest bleeding heart style they took it upon themselves to help these unfortunate wretches who knew no better than to live like brutes. In the 1930s members of the Left Book Club decided what Wiganers really needed to raise their consciousness was somebody to write a book about them, a sociological tome describing their poverty and hopelessness. These London based intellectuals commissioned a young man from a well to do family who after a very expensive private education had worked as a colonial servant in India before moving to Paris to pursue a career as a writer to live in Wigan, study the lives of the poor and write something that would raise awareness of their plight.

The writer's name was Eric Blair and in lodging with several families in the town he was appalled at what he saw. Not at the vulgarity or brutishness of the people but at the appalling treatment they endured with a certain nobility. I have read many books that describe similar conditions endured by the urban and rural poor in the USA. The problem was that everybody knew how terrible the slums were, everybody was aware of the suffering caused by bad working conditions, damp homes and lack of facilities. And everyone thought something ought to be done about it ... by somebody else. This was the start of the era of big government. Power was being centralised in national government departments and municipalities, Church Parish Councils and local charities were being squeezed out of the picture. The one-size-fits-all solutions of big government seldom fit anybody properly, local problems need local solutions. It was also the start of the era of corporatism. Instead of factories and mines being owned by local families who lived in the community close to their workers, businesses were now owned by anonymous shareholders who lived miles away and had no sense of what was going on. That is not to say the local capitalists were perfect but the mean spirited tightwads subject to pressure because of the more acceptable conditions offered by some of their competitors.

Eric Blair was the opposite of a modern left winger, raging about equal rights or homophobia or the evils of smoking and alcohol but too delicate to address the innate conservatism of the working class, the problems of race or the failure of the education system, he had no time for what we would now call political correctness and its close kin multiculturalism and moral relativism, instead he wrote of what he observed with a cold fury but saved for the people of Wigan that he came to know, a warm admiration as he described their resilience and cheerfulness. Of one man whose family he lodged with he said "That he can, after ten hours working a thin seam (a coal mining term describing a task that involved lying on ones belly in a tunnel probably no more that two and a half feet high, chipping coal with a pick and pushing it backwards mole - like for others to load into skips) he can converse jovially or sit and read Dickens, Hardy or translations of Zola or listen to plays and discussions on their radios is a testament to the nobility of the human spirit. His sympathies lay not with the intellectuals who might pass resolutions about the need for change but would do nothing or if they did would only make matters worse because they did not understand the problem. He supported they guys who lay on their stomachs in cold, dank, blackness, with coal dust clogging their lungs as they chipped at the seam.

His book, which he called The Road To Wigan Pier was rejected by the Left Book Club, well it challenged their assumptions so it had to be wrong. Eric wasn't discouraged however, he took it to a commercial publisher and under the title The Road To Wigan Pier it became famous. Eric did too but only after he changed is name to George Orwell. A couple of his books which predict the kind of authoritarian regime the members of the Left book Club yearned for became best sellers and are still in print today.

When next you hear David Cameron prattling about his "big society" or the vacuous windbag Obama blethering about "community organising" reflect on the library at Wanlockhead. There we find what is missing from modern society. It is not the finger wagging admonitions of Nanny State or the scaremonger ring of her cohorts in the pseudo - science lobby.that chivvy us into being good members of society, but adversity. It was not ordinary people of Wanlockhead who needed strong governance to keep them in line, their awe inspiring religious leaders did that. It was the ruling elite, who abused their power without restraint, that made "big government" necessary. But as we now know, big government does not work any better than elitism. Only small government works. Small government at municipal level and provincial level based on the ideal of community service, without party politics and the influence of big money. Only by returning to that and to the principle that our representatives are elected to serve the interests of their constituents and not those of political parties or vested interests can we start to tackle the problems of society.

In a bizarre turnround it is now the left that seeks to exercise via big government, the kind of power the masters of the past relied on and to infantilise and marginalise the lower classes. But the modern left are as remote from and ignorant of the lives and the mindset of ordinary people as were the moneyed elite they have displaced.

Getting Started With ExistentialismIn our section on philosophy existentialism had to be a major focal points. The world is constantly being defrauded by false prophets and self styled messiahs with promises of deliverance from the constant dangers and uncertainties of life.

Existentialism however is the philosophy of personal responsibility.
Theosophy For BeginnersThose two old friends of Greenteth Multi Media, Philo and Sophia, are dedicated to spreading wisdom and understanding. It's natural then that their page here should include a sub menu on Theosophy, an almost forgotten belief system now although it was only founded in the nineteenth century. Theosophy is based on the ideas of Helena Blavatsky and while it drawns on the ancient wisom found in Hindu, Budhist and Zoroastrian teachings it is fully compatible with Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox versions of Christianity as well as Jewish and Muslim beliefs.
The Flight From FreedomFleeing from freedom seems like a contradiction, after all we usually asdsiciate flight with escaping from captivity. In this first part of Existentialism for Beginners however the author identifies a human instinct that predisposes us to seek illusory safety by conforming and being part of the crowd rather than embarking on the lonely life of the free thinker, the person who truly makes their own decisions and follows their own path.
Liberal? What Does That Mean?What is a liberal? Is it something to do with the kind of politically correct thinking that obsesses over minority rights while seeking to marginalise mainstream society? Is liberalism an authoritarian system that seeks to impose politically correct left wing ideology on everybody. Or is a liberal, as is argued here, a very respectable political postion whose name has been usurped by people reluctant to acknowledge their inner Nazi.
Populist AuthoritarianismThe Labour Party may talk of socialism but their Nanny State tyle of ovrbearing governmental control freakery rather than protecting the weak according to the political philosophy of John Locke seeks to suppress individualism and impose uniformity by spreading fear and panic. This approach achieves equality by making all weak and dependent. Unfortunately it debilitates the nation.
Broken SocietiesAn appraisal of Coming Apart: The State of White America 1960-2010 by Charles Murray. inequality is a very hot topic, Murray is one of the few people looking at it from a conservative point of view, which is strange when one looks at what is most likely causing this divide. Policically nations have never ben more polarised with conservatives and liberals both convinced the other is evil, while the gap between rich and poor widens, the middle class disintegrates and the working class becomes a state dependent underclass.
Equal Rights Campaigners Not Christians Are Imposing Their Belief On OthersWhen head of the Euality and Human Rights Commission Trevor Phillips speaks we should termble. This nasty little race hustler is the de facto head of the thought police and sees his job as to stamp on racism, sexism, homophobia and anything else he and his cronies decide they are not going to tolerate. It is all in the name of tolerance of course, or divesity as Phillips would say. But how does telling people what they can and cannot think promote diversity?
A Liberal's DilemmasThe progresive left, the politically correct Thought Police, are big on supporting all minorities in their pursuit of their rights and in preaching tolerance and diversity to society at large. But what happens when two of those precipous minorities, say for example Muslims and feminists come into conflict on some issues.
The Philosophy of AnarchyIn part 2 of Anarchy For Beginners Ian Thorpe explores the origins of anarchism as a system of government and explodes the mordern myth that anarchy means lawlessness and chaos.
Nanny OrwellFew of us hoped for truly great things from the coalition government formed by the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats after we threw out the wretched New Labour poltroons, but we did not expect an extension of the nanny state, more finger wagging authoritarianism and a thought police agenda that would have shocked George Orwell himself from this Big Brother coalition.
The Partisan Politics Of Failure"What a mess the modern way of doing politics based on a politically correct consensus and social engineering has produced. The daily stirrer looks at how the bipolar left - right divide stops things getting better rather than helping get the developed world back on track.

Oklahoma releases prison log for botched April execution

By Heide Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - A person trained to draw blood inserted the IV for the botched execution of a convicted murderer in Oklahoma last April, a prison log released on Thursday revealed, but gave no other details of what happened when the procedure went wrong. The Oklahoma Department of Correction log said a doctor checked twice to see if inmate Clayton Lockett was unconscious during the April 29 execution. It noted that 12 minutes after the lethal injection of chemicals was administered: "blinds lowered in chamber." The next entry comes 24 minutes later: "Doctor pronounced offender dead." Lockett died, apparently of a heart attack caused by the lethal injection drugs, after prison officials called a halt to the execution because of problems with the IV that prevented the drugs from being properly administered and caused chemicals to spill onto the floor of the death chamber. Before the curtains were drawn to block the view, witnesses said Lockett appeared to be writhing on the gurney and struggling to lift his head.

NFL, under public pressure, toughens domestic violence bans

By Eric Kelsey LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The National Football League, stung by a public uproar from critics who said it was too lenient on a player accused of assaulting his fiancée, on Thursday announced stricter domestic violence penalties. Players will now receive a six-game ban for a first-time violation of the league's policy and an indefinite ban for a second violation, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a letter to team owners obtained by Reuters. Goodell did not mention Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice by name, but apologized for how the league handled his suspension. Women's and family groups blasted the NFL after it suspended Rice for only two games in July for allegedly assaulting his then-fiancee and now wife.

Arizona mom who left children in hot car regains custody
By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - An Arizona woman who attracted national attention in March when she left her two young children in a hot car while at a job interview regained custody of them on Thursday, her lawyer said.     Shanesha Taylor, whose tear-stained mug shot was broadcast widely and generated nearly $115,000 in donations, will be allowed to take her two sons home from state care immediately and without restrictions under a ruling by a juvenile court judge, said attorney Benjamin Taylor.     “Today is a great day,” the lawyer told Reuters. “She is very happy that she will be reunited with her children and be able to care for them again.”     Taylor's children were taken away after police found her two boys, a 6-month-old infant and a 2-year-old, alone in a locked vehicle in March, with temperatures inside surpassing 100 degrees F.     Her children were buckled into the backseat of the vehicle, sweating profusely and in apparent distress, police said.

California governor considers allowing gender identity on death certificates

Death certificates in California would be changed to reflect the gender identity of people at the time of their death rather than their sex at birth under a bill sent to Governor Jerry Brown on Thursday, the latest effort by the state to further the rights of transgender residents. The California Assembly voted 66-4 to approve amendments before sending the bill, known as AB 1577, to Democratic Governor Jerry Brown. It is one of several measures aimed at furthering the family rights of LGBT Californians passed this session, including a measure allowing same-sex couples to be listed as mother, father or parent on a child's birth certificate. "Once we are deceased, we are often at the mercy of others to treat us with dignity," said California Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins, a Democrat from San Diego.

IMF Chief Legarde Arrested? It's DSKja vu All Over Again.

Political Europe Suppressed Under Washington´s Thumb Is Waking Up
In the aftermath of the downing of the Malaysian airliner in Ukraine, the Western media followed Washington’s lead and manipulated reports in order to make Europeans believe that Russia and Russian-supported separatists in eastern Ukraine were responsible for downing the airliner. In Germany, the press was an extension of Washington’s propaganda machine despite the lack of evidence from both Washington and Kiev to support their irresponsible claims.

Could Corporate Profits have something to do with it?

New malaria vaccine doesn’t work most of the time, but manufacturer says it’s good enough to sell
Once again we turn our attention to vaccines and the criminality of the drug companies that manufacture and sell them:
There's a good chance that the vast majority of people who receive it won't derive any benefits whatsoever. But that isn't stopping British drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) from seeking regulatory approval for a new vaccine for malaria, known as RTS,S, that a recent study determined is only about 30 percent effective at preventing severe cases of the disease, which has no recognized cure.

New GMO Approval Will Go Ahead Despite Public Outcry.

Such Nice People Live On The Left Of The Political Spectrum
Left wing politics, once the politics of freedom, individualism and self - determination has increasingly over the past few decades become the politics of hate, envy, bitterness, hypocrisy and authoritarianism.

Britain’s maths policy simply doesn’t add up - but neither does overestimating the importance of maths.
As an engineer, mathematics has been an important part of my career but I have always been aware that it is a tool. In the past there have been many attempts to develop a 'philosophy of everything' base on mathematical speculations that took maths into areas it was never designed to go, areas of human thought and enquiry that rightly belong to philosophers. This talk of mathematicians being creative jarrs with me somewhat, inventors, engineers, designers are creative. Mathematics is just part of our tool kit.

Why Does The US Government Hold A Patent On The Ebola Virus? Just Askin'

And guess which national government is allegedly responsible.

Secrets And Lies And Oil In Scottish Referendum Cover Up

As Obama launches another airborne assault in Iraq, who are ISIS
I have been consistently against western (FUKUS axis) interventions in domestic politics of middle eastern states. There comes a time however when intervention is necessary. Thus we must accept the necessity of the USA's latest military adventure, the reconvening of the war in Iraq.So why have I had a change of heart at this stage?

EU Boss Argues That Their Work With Banks And Corporate Interests Should Be Concealed From The Public.
Shills for global government and corporate fascism are always quick to shout 'conspiracy theorist' when anybody questions things like the EU federalisation project, the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trans Pacific Trade Partnership (TPP) The obvious response is to ask why representatives of supra national bureaucracies are so desperate to ensure progress on these peojects is shrounded in secrecy?

The Real Reason The US Is Bombing Iraq
Only a day after Obama’s announcement that he had authorized “targeted strikes” inside Iraq in order to combat the Islamic State (IS) advance, the United States has indeed followed through with their threat. At least two waves of airstrikes against a variety of targets have already taken place inside Iraq. One of the airstrikes apparently struck an IS mortar position and an IS convoy near Erbil. IS fighters had advanced to within a half hour’s distance from Erbil, the capital of Iraq’s Kurdish region.

German Handelsblatt Releases Stunning Anti-West Op-Ed, Asks If West Rabble-Rousers Are On The Payroll Of The KGB
Up until this point in the Obama Administrations attempt to recreate events leading up to World War One, Angela Merkel and German media in general, had been firmly on the side of the west when it comes to dealing with Russia, Putin and realpolitik in broader terms. That changed dramatically today when Gabor Steingart, the chief editor of Handelsblatt, Germany's leading economic newspaper, came out with a stunning op-ed, in German, English and Russian, titled simply that "The West on the wrong path"

Scots Wha Hae When Wallace Bled - A Boggart's view of Scottish Independence.
The Scottish Independence debate has failed so far to fire passions north of the border. Most Scots seem to be seeking evidence that Scotland will be no worse off as an independent nation, or is and will continue to be better off as part of the UK. Nobody in either London or Edinburgh is able to give a straight answer however. Her's our contribution ...

How Politically Correct Thinking Leads Into A Moral Maze
Being a leftie can be hard work however, with so many of the causes they must embrace being in direct opposition to other favoured causes, lefties encounter a lot of moral dilemmas. So being a believer in all -isms, the kind of idiot who equates calls for immigration controls with South African Apartheid or Stalinist genocide and is quite sure that equality means members of favoured minorities should be given me the privileged status of an elite class, can get hairy at times.

Another Obama Sponsored Genocide - not Alawi or Christians In Syria but Yazidi in Iraq.
While the west has been distracted by events in Gaza and Ukraine, and the neo - fascist 'left' have suddenly discovered the joys of anti Russianism and anti Semitism, the FUKUS axis sponsored genocidists of ISIS have discovered another inoffensive minority to exterminate now that the Syriac Christians have fled.

Neo - fascist Left's Idiotic Obsession With Racism Becoming More Insane
I don't know how many of you have noticed but the wailing and gnashing of teeth from the politically correct left over imaginary racism has become fr moire irrational and hysterical since the success of UKIP the the European Parliament elections back in May. The latest entirely innocent thing to be the target of racism accusations from the insane left is BBC Radio's sedate gardening programme Gardeners World. How have the cucumers and compost brigade upset the loony left?

Fear and Panic and Ebola Fever
The latest attempt to justify war has been the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine allegely by pro Russia separatists with support from The Kremlin. So far the 'compelling evidence' the American government claimed to possess has not been revealed but such evidence as has been seen points to another false flag even. Remember the Swine Flu pandemic?They're doing it again with Ebola fever, ramping up the scare factor and trying to spread enough fear and panic to justify suspending democratic rule by pretending this disease could potentially kill most of us.

Afrophilia and the reality of western ambitions in Africa
One of the dogmas of this politically correct cult of knee jerking, lockstep marching, wisdom-of-the-crowd chanting flock of Sheeple is that we must love Africa. Dark skin good, pale skin bad is the mantra. That the sheeple are nothing more than gullible dupes and useful idiots to the faceless men and women who really lead us is shown by the contrast between the mass Afrophilia of the flock and the way the controllers see Africa.

FUKUS axis imposes sanctions, Russian Oligarchs Shrug
So far in the Libyan crisis, the Syria crisis, the Iraq crisis and the Ukraine crisis, Obama and the European leaders have made a lot of noise and imposed a lot of meaningless sanctions (like confiscating the bus passes of retired Russian gengsters living in the west. And the Russians have just quietly got on with doing what they were doing.

What are US biowar researchers doing in the Ebola zone?
What are US biowar researchers doing in the Ebola zone? That is a question being asked around the cyberosphere as the Ebola outbreak in Africa continues to spread and alarm grows in the western nations. The Tulane University researchers [and colleagues] in the US biowarfare research community, have been operating in West Africa for some time. What exactly have they been doing? Exactly what diagnostic tests have they been performing on citizens of Sierra Leone?

Mass Immigration Means Failing Hospitals, Schools And Overcrowded Cities
Another shock for the left as think tank Civitas reports that mass immigration causes enormous social and economic problems while the 'benefits' to society the left bang on about are very marginal. The left's real agenda of course is the genocide of the fair skinned races. As most of these stupid lefties are white Europeans or Americans this is a perfect illustation of how stupid and self important they are, How does that old joke go about turkeys voting for Christmas?

Pandemonium: UKIP Taken Over By Fiends From Hell?

Ukraine Government Fires Missiles At Rebel Held Targets Leaders in Washington, London, Paris and Brussels continue to pump out the propaganda against Russia as they try to provoke a war over the alleged shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine by separatist rebels supported by Russia. But in spite of claims by Obama and Kerry that the US have evidence that proves it was the rebels wot done it, the more evidence we see, the more likely it looks that the Ukrain government in Kiew was responsible.

Why Do The 'Progressive Left' Support Those Who Use Rape As A Weapon Of War
Rape as a weapon of war and genocide is not a pleasant subject but it is one that needs to be raise, like the issue of Female Genital Mutilation. Why visit such unpleasant topics? To expose the hypocrisy of the modern political left who have more in common with Hitler's Nazis, Mussolini's Fascist or Stalin's brutal Soviet regime that the supporters of traditional left wing values of individual freedom, free speech and equality before the law.

FUKUS axis imposes sanctions, Russian Oligarchs Shrug

Sensational Break From Official Lies - German Aviation Expert Says MH17 Brought Down By Air To Air Missile
The shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine has triggered a war of words between the USA / FUKUS axis and Russia as President Obama, without any clear evidence to support him, tried to blame Russia and use the outrage to justify a military intervention in Ukraine that would certainly start a major global conflict. So far Russia has stood its ground but refused to be provoked as evidence like that below has undermined the western narrative.

Germany Axes Canada-EU Trade Agreement, This Will End TTIP Stitch Up Too
We are winning. Well today we are at least. News broke over the weekend that Germany intends to junk the Canada Europe Trade Agreement (CETA), a template for the much bigger and therefore more threatening to freedom and democratic rule Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment partnership (TTIP).

Funny How A Few Days Good Weather Brings The Warmageddonists Out
Over the past few scorching hot days I have seen several members of the alomst defunct Warmageddonist society plugging their tired, discredited old "science" and trying to claim that mathematics proves that what is observably not happening is actually happening but only scientists are clever enough to understand that ... Hmm, is that so?

Military Veterans Opinion: Probably A Bomb That Took Down MH-17!
Funny how the left present themselves as the politics of peace and unity but are all out in support of Barack Obama's latest warmongering campaign in Ukraine following the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. I suppose the pacifists enthusiasm for World War Three proves George Orwell was right when he said War is Peace.

America's Dumbest Move Yet: Hijacking A Foreign Bank
The financial markets seem to be getting more volatile, with share prices and currency values fluctuating wildly on the slightest indication of good or bad news. But when central banks start hijacking other banks on the basis of very flimsy evidence from a pariah state, we should befinding somewhere safer for our money

UK Government Report Confirms Huge Abuse of EU Free Movement Rules
After scream of 'racists' and 'bigots' from the left when common sense users pointed out that mass immigration does not benefit the economy, nor is it fair to the people shiioped here having been promised a utopian existence only to find they are living in foul conditions, doing menial jobs, and being paid under minimum wage and exploited by unscrupulous bosses. , a report by civil servants confirms that the 'right wing extremists' was absolutely correct.

Malaysian Government and Opposition Call For MH17 Justice – Evidence Suggests Foul Play
Thanks to the sleazy political opportunism of Barack Hussein Obama and his bum boy David Cameron the tragedy of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has been turned into a circus as the outrageous accusations (based on zero evidence, the USA told reporters to look on Facebook if they wanted proof the Ukrain pro Russia separatists did it) have spawned increasingly crazy conspiracy theories.

Poor white pupils put off school by multicultural timetable
Education, should it be about learning to read, write, spell and calculate? Or should it be about feminism, gay rights, black history and 'gender awareness' whatever that is? For many years we have had multiculturalism and politically correct thinking rammed doiwn pupils throats but noe a study by a local education department suggests this obsession with politicallly corret diversity is responsible for the failure of white working class pupils.

Israel maybe guilty of war crimes – UN Human Rights Chief(This could be the understatement of the millennium)
Israel maybe committing war crimes in Gaza, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights says.

Opening an emergency debate at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, she citied cases of Israeli air strikes and shelling hitting ...

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 - Nothing is ever what it seems to be
Nothing is ever what it seems to be, I learned that doing top level consultancy contracts for government departments. Deception is the name of the game. So what of Flight MH17, certainly the plane was shot down and our sympathies are with the families of the dead.

US State Dept. Annoyed at Press Questioning MH17 Narrative Spokeswoman Angrily Refers Press to Social Media for 'Proof'
The Obama Administration continues to reiterate its narrative on what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 with more certainty (and often different details) every day, but there is a stark lack of evidence, beyond a handful of “authenticity could not be verified” images floating around on social media. With Russia denying the allegations, the US must have some really damning evidence to be so certain, right? Just so, insists the State Department, just don’t ask them to show any of it.

Obama Goes Full - On Nazi: with Europe, and it’s headlined on July 18th, “US Accused of Forcing EU to Accept Tar Sands Oil Trade
The secret negotiations around the 'New World Order' free trade treaties, TPP and TTIP that will strip democratically elected governments of sovereign power lumber on.

Diversity' Does Not Mean Quotas. Why Do The Left Have To Rewrite The Dictionary.
One might think, given the amount of screaming and shouting about diversity we hear from the left, they might take a little time to find out what it really means and stop applying their superficial and shallow meaning to it. The left however are hupocrites which is why they can claim to have a monopoly on truth and goodness while embracing the tactics of fascism in silencing opposition. Thus they have no problem reducing 'diversity' to a question of skin colour or sexual preference while insisting only one shade of opinion is acceptable.

What The Media Is Not Writing About Flight MH17
