The Plague of Democracy: The Yellow Vest Outbreak in France

Democracy is a charade imposed by the elite upon a docile people to keep them docile. It was never intended that the stinking proletariat should actually decide anything. But universal education and a rising standard of living, both prerequisites of a tech-based industrial economy, have changed all that. Thus, as we observed of Britain:

... by the end of the 20th Century, something like half of all school leavers were entering post-secondary education, mostly graduating with at least a bachelor's degree, and often a master's or doctoral degree too. This combined with the ease with which the Internet has made it possible for anyone to disseminate their political opinions widely and to challenge the political narratives of the mainstream media has resulted in the emergence of a threat of genuinely popular democracy.

For the first time, the people have opinions on, and interests in, almost every aspect of public policy and moreover they were beginning loudly to demand that their voices be heard and their interests be served.
Moreover, due to increased prosperity, the proles are well fed if not overfed and thus match the elite classes in stature, health, and appearance. They even smell no different, and indeed, hardly smell at all.

In Britain the resultant outbreak of democracy has led in recent months to the collapse of Theresa May's Prime Ministerial credibility and the fragmentation not only her government, but of the governing Tory Party. As the Daily Mail relates:

Desperate Theresa May will plead for MPs to back her Brexit Bill in a crucial speech tonight - as her hopes of success fade.

The PM will make the case for her 'bold' package in a speech in Westminster this afternoon, urging politicians to get on board with her plan.

However, MailOnline understands that chief whip Julian Smith warned the PM that she is staring down the barrel of defeat.
Meantime, across the Chanel, France's traditionally stupendously arrogant elite are faced with outrageous public contempt from the pestilential and never relenting Yellow Vests, who, it is reported:

...have already succeeded in shattering the capitalist myth of “representative democracy” in the age of neo-liberalism. Their uprising has unmasked the lies and violence of republican government, as well as the duplicity of representative institutions like political parties, bureaucratic unions and the mainstream media.
Moreover:

...the Yellow Vests represent the first time in history that a spontaneous, self-organized social movement has ever held out for half a year in spite of repression while retaining its autonomy, resisting cooptation, bureaucratization and sectarian splits. All the while, standing up to full-scale government repression and targeted propaganda, it poses a real, human alternative to the dehumanization of society under the rule of the capitalist “market.”

The Craig Murray Interview: Part II. Former UK Ambassador Seeks Destruction of British State

Former UK Ambassador, Craig Murray, believes that the British state is deeply corrupt. So corrupt, indeed, that he seeks its destruction.

By way of concrete action to achieve the destruction of the UK, Murray has, during recent years, devoted much of his time and energy to the cause of what is, nominally, Scotch Nationalism and the Scottish National Party's drive to tear Scotland from the United Kingdom.

I say what is "nominally Scotch nationalism, since both Murray and the Scottish National Party wish for an independent Scotland to remain within the European Union, where the Scotch would constitute a mere 1% of the total population (versus almost 10% of the UK population) in an increasingly tight political union of 500 million people that is fundamentally anti-nationalist.

It seems to me, furthermore, that Murray's prescription for Britain, the destruction of the state, seems rash indeed. Countries that disintegrate, whether spontaneously or through the application of pressure from without, rarely have a happy future, as the examples of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya demonstrate. True, a satisfactory recovery may be possible, as with Russia and some other post Soviet states, though not with the Ukraine, where the US-engineered destruction of the state led to dismemberment, and population collapse. Better, for the UK, surely, is reform not dismemberment, however, vast the challenge, and difficult the means.

Still, I think Craig Murray is fundamentally an honest man. He has some interesting things to say and says them well, as revealed in this conversation with former Scottish First Minister, Alex Salmond.

The OPCW, Chemical Weapons Attack at Douma, and the Skipal Poisonings

Zero Hedge, May 19, 2019: In view of the latest revelations from the leaked report, which seem to prove that at least some elements of the Douma “chemical attack” were entirely staged, we want to take look back at the chaotic events of Spring 2018.
  • What was the agenda behind the Douma false flag?
  • Why was the US response seemingly token and ineffective?
  • Why was the Secretary of State Rex Tillerson fired?
  • What agenda tied the Skripal case to the Douma attack?
The following is an extract from an article by Catte originally published April 14th last year, which takes on a greater weight in light of certain evidence – not only that the Douma attack was faked, but that the OPCW is compromised.

Trump's Tariffs: Why Such a Half-Baked Policy?

The problem with Trump is an incapacity to act to any effect. He hasn't even built the goddam wall, or stopped the flood of illegal immigrants by other means.

Now Trump is imposing tariffs on China to punish China for stealing American industrial and military secrets, which obviously, won't stop China stealing American industrial and military secrets.

Why not?

Because the US is in an informational, technological and economic war with China for global supremacy. China ain't gonna give up just because Trump bans Huiwei phone gear, or sticks a tariff on imports of Chinese-made Christmas tree lights.

The only consequence of Trump's anti-China tariffs, if they stay, is to force global corporations in search of cheap labor, to move off-shore production from China to Bangladesh, Vietnam or a dozen other places. Meantime, the Chinese will have more Christmas tree lights for their own consumption. So who cares? What difference does it make?

If Trump actually wanted to rebuild America's industrial base, he should impose a tariff wall against every one, with the exception of Canada, Mexico, and the rest of Latin America: the condition being, of course, that those countries free to export to America tariff-free enter the same tariff ring-fence as America.

That way, US labor would be competing not with billions of low wage workers, but a manageable 400 million Latin Americans. Moreover, those Latin American competitors would have an incentive to purchase high-tech gear tariff-free from the US, rather than China or elsewhere beyond the tariff ring fence. A further benefit would be to raise the prosperity of Latin America, thereby reducing the inclination of millions of Latin Americans to migrate to North America.

Two other requirements for a sound US industrial policy are:

1. Anti-monopoly legislation that creates fierce competition within the protected Western Hemisphere market;

2. Negotiation with other high wage countries, including Japan, S. Korea, Australia, and the European nations, to bring them within the tariff protected trade zone.

None of this will get done, obviously. Instead, it looks as though we may be about to see the Mother-of-all wars for global hegemony against Iran.

Yes, Tariffs Raise Domestic Prices, That's the Reason for Them

BePo, the Bezos Post, aka the Washington Post, reported on Monday that:

National Economic Council Director Lawrence Kudlow acknowledged Sunday that American consumers end up paying for the administration's tariffs on Chinese imports, contradicting President Trump's repeated inaccurate claim that the Chinese foot the bill.

Which is a truth stated with intent to deceive.

Yes, tariffs raise the price of imported goods, which is bad. But tariffs boost domestic production of import substitutes, thus raising the demand for labor, hence raising wages, thus enabling Americans to pay higher prices for locally produced goods. 

Moreover, the substitution of domestic products for many of the half-trillion-dollars-worth of goods the US currently imports from China will greatly increase domestic demand for the materials and machines necessary to expand American manufacturing. This, in turn, will stimulate investment in all kinds of R and D and in technical education. 

Who loses from tariffs?

The globalist elite, who seek relentlessly to maximize profits by manufacturing where wages are lowest and environmental and workplace health and safety regulations are weakest, while selling where prices are highest, and taking profits where taxes are lowest or non-existent. 

That's why MAGA is such an incendiary idea. Globalists don't want to make American industry great again or Americans prosperous again. They want to make Americans poor — dirt poor, like the teeming masses of Third Worlders with whom they are striving mightily to flood both the United States and Europe, thereby to drive down wages.

And that's why the globalist elite deploy leftist puppets to accuse of racism, those who oppose their own impoverishment through invasion of their homeland by people of alien race, religion and culture.

Why Western "Democracy" Needs a Law Against Reality

Farage demolishes BBC Interviewer, Andrew Marr:
 

Uh huh! Google's U-Tube Memory-holed that before we managed to post it. But no prob. Here it is at the Gruniard. Give 'em a click.

Kunstler demolishes Robert Mueller:
For the Progressive Democratic “Resistance” (PDR), post-Modernism is in full flower. They have ruled objective reality inadmissible. There are only stories — his story, her story, they’s story, zhe’s story, and you must believe them because they come out of lived experience — for instance the lived experience of having lost a sure-thing presidential election to a cartoon character with zero political experience, and then having lost the grand inquisition to oust him. For the PDRs, the metaphysical concept of reality refers to some land of dark make-believe over a distant horizon where numbers supposedly add up (ha!) and the actions of persons are said to entail a strange cosmic condition known as consequence.

Now that the Mueller Investigation has concluded empty of charges — despite two-plus-years of sedulous effort by fiercely dedicated antagonists of its target — everything about it, including the sacred Mueller Report, begins to emit odious vapors like unto a rump roast that has laid uncovered in a pantry for three weeks, attracting the attention of flies. The PDRs might think twice about a closer examination of all that festering material. What they’re liable to find is evidence of how slovenly and dishonest it was and how the revered legal maestro in charge of composing it may well be subject to charges himself of obstructing justice and malicious prosecution.

Information emerged over the weeks since the Mueller Report’s release that Mr. Mueller and his team knew unequivocally that the Special Counsel’s mission and the FBI operations that preceded it were based on concocted political bullshit supplied by Mrs. Clinton and her network of flunkies and fixers, ranging throughout the permanent DC bureacuracy (a.k.a. the Swamp), to outposts in foreign intel services and the political kitty-litter box known as Ukraine. Mr. Mueller must have suspected this from the outset, but knew for sure by the summer of 2017, and omitted to advise the American public that he had uncovered a fraud. Rather, he rode on the back of that fraud for two years, as if touring a political landfill on a donkey, leaving the public to stew in anxious hallucinations.

Russian Nationalism

Russians do nationalism brilliantly, which may account in large part for the antagonism that Russia evokes among Western leaders.

Were Trump to attempt a show like Russia's Victory Day celebration, the streets of Washington DC would be filled with mobs of pussy-hat wearers for impeachment now, anti-Second Amendment gun controllers, and a rabble of Black Lives Matterers.

In London Thereason May would be beset by Remoaners demanding a second referendum, while in Paris, France's little President Micron would face loud contempt from Les Gilets Jaunes.

In appearance, at least, Russia is a lot sounder than any of the Western states.

Craig Murray on Muellergate

One of the most remarkable Internet freelancers is Craig Murray, former UK Ambassador, fired by the Government of Tony Blair for opposing the receipt of intelligence obtained by means of grotesque torture in an Uzbek jail. Where Murray will come from on any particular issue is, in my experience, extremely difficult to guess. But whatever he has to say, it is always clear, concise, well informed, and relentlessly logical. Murray's latest piece entitled The Real Muellergate Scandal is no exception.

Robert Mueller is either a fool, or deeply corrupt. I do not think he is a fool.

I did not comment instantly on the Mueller Report as I was so shocked by it, I have been waiting to see if any other facts come to light in justification. Nothing has. I limit myself here to that area of which I have personal knowledge – the leak of DNC and Podesta emails to Wikileaks. On the wider question of the corrupt Russian 1% having business dealings with the corrupt Western 1%, all I have to say is that if you believe that is limited in the USA by party political boundaries, you are a fool.

On the DNC leak, Mueller started with the prejudice that it was “the Russians” and he deliberately and systematically excluded from evidence anything that contradicted that view.

Mueller, as a matter of determined policy, omitted key steps which any honest investigator would undertake. He did not commission any forensic examination of the DNC servers. He did not interview Bill Binney. He did not interview Julian Assange. His failure to do any of those obvious things renders his report worthless.

There has never been, by any US law enforcement or security service body, a forensic examination of the DNC servers, despite the fact that the claim those servers were hacked is the very heart of the entire investigation. Instead, the security services simply accepted the “evidence” provided by the DNC’s own IT security consultants, Crowdstrike, a company which is politically aligned to the Clintons.

That is precisely the equivalent of the police receiving a phone call saying:

“Hello? My husband has just been murdered. He had a knife in his back with the initials of the Russian man who lives next door engraved on it in Cyrillic script. I have employed a private detective who will send you photos of the body and the knife. No, you don’t need to see either of them.”

There is no honest policeman in the world who would agree to that proposition, and neither would Mueller were he remotely an honest man.

Two facts compound this failure.

The first is the absolutely key word of Bill Binney, former Technical Director of the NSA, the USA’s $14 billion a year surveillance organisation. Bill Binney is an acknowledged world leader in cyber surveillance, and is infinitely more qualified than Crowdstrike. Bill states that the download rates for the “hack” given by Crowdstrike are at a speed – 41 Megabytes per second – that could not even nearly be attained remotely at the location: thus the information must have been downloaded to a local device, eg a memory stick. Binney has further evidence regarding formatting which supports this.

How Venezuela's Maduro Duped Trump

According to this report, Trump's people were conned by Venezuelan Defense minister Paduro, who entered into a conspiracy with them to overthrow the Maduro regime, but stepped aside when the coup was attempted, resulting in a humiliating fiasco for Trump.
FRN, May 5, 2019: According to confidential information obtained by the Spanish edition of ABC, the regime change plan arose from an agreement between US National Security Advisor John Bolton and Venezuelan Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino , which was concluded during several telephone conversations held in recent months. Padrino, and along with him, some other ministers and generals had to sign onto the agreement with the U.S president-appointed President Juan Guaido of the plan drawn up by opponents of Nicolas Maduro.

These documents contained a “road map”, according to which a coup would end with the election of the head of Venezuela “30 days after the Chavista regime surrendered and recognized Guaido as the person legally acting as head of the Republic.”

In parallel, the Supreme Court of Venezuela represented by its chairman, Michel Moreno , was to declare illegal the Constituent Assembly (National Constitutional Assembly), the branch of the legislative power created and controlled by Nicolas Maduro. And “with the observance of the necessary legal procedures and formalities to the head of the National Guard, General Ivan Rafael Hernandez Dala was charged with the duty to inform Maduro that he had only two options in the current situation: either he would leave the country, fleeing to Cuba, or be arrested at the request of the court. After that, a “top secret document from the depths of American intelligence” was supposed to appear on the scene, that in Venezuela there are between 20 and 25 thousand armed Cuban mercenaries supporting Maduro and keeping the whole Bolivarian Republic in fear ” (the armed forces of which have 235 thousand active military and 200 thousand more – reservists – author’s note.) Thus, by joint efforts of the USA and the Venezuelan military “the country would have been spared by the U.S appointed president of the dictator Maduro and from his support by battalions of soldiers of fortune from Cuba” .

But something went wrong. Maduro did not flee to Cuba, Padrino suddenly changed his mind about becoming the “godfather of the Venezuelan revolution” (by the way, Padrino translated from Spanish means “godfather”), and the vast majority of Venezuelan generals did not get in touch at the time appointed by the Americans. (There is an interesting moment during Guaido’s call to arms, with the 14 soldiers behind him, when a cell-phone goes off and distracts him – maybe that was the call, ‘it’s not happening’ – J. Flores)

Time for Trump to change his foreign policy advisers and abandon the attempt to rule Latin America by covert operations. Instead is required a new approach to relations with the other half of the Western hemisphere. The objective should be to stop the flood of Latinos to the North, not with a wall, but by helping make Latin America a better place for Latinos to live.

The Council on Foreign Relations: British Imperialism Transplanted in America


It would surely be a surprise to most Americans were they to learn that: (a) virtually all branches of the American media follow policy lines laid down by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR); (b) that the CFR was established at the instigation of British imperialists and members of Cecil Rhodes secret society for global governance with funding from JP Morgan and other New York bankers; and (c) that the CFR is regarded by those familiar with its work and influence as the nearest thing America has to a ruling establishment.

Intellectual Observer, May 1, 2019: Largely unbeknownst to the general public, executives and top journalists of almost all major US news outlets have long been members of the influential Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

Established in 1921 as a private, bipartisan organization to “awaken America to its worldwide responsibilities”, the CFR and its close to 5000 elite members for decades have shaped US foreign policy and public discourse about it. As a well-known Council member famously explained, they transformed the American republic into a global empire, albeit a “bene­volent” one.

Based on official membership rosters, the following illustration depicts for the first time the extensive media network of the CFR and its two major international affiliate organizations: the Bilderberg Group(mainly covering the US and Europe) and the Trilateral Commission (covering North America, Europe and East Asia), both established by Council leaders to foster elite cooperation at the global level.

In a column entitled “Ruling Class Journalists”, former Washington Post senior editor and ombudsman Richard Harwood described the Council and its members approvingly as “the nearest thing we have to a ruling establishment in the United States”.

Tom Jefferson 1976Pictures in Our Heads – Council on Foreign Relations Founding Father Walter Lippmann

In his book “The ANGLO-AMERICAN ESTABLISHMENT” Quigley writes, “One Wintry Afternoon in February 1891, three men were engaged in earnest conversation in London. From that conversation were to flow consequences of the greatest importance to the British Empire and to the world as a whole. For these men were organizing a secret society that was, for more than fifty years, to be one of the most important forces in the formulation and execution of British imperial and foreign policy. The three men who were thus engaged were already well known in England.

The leader was Cecil Rhodes, fabulously wealthy empire builder and the most important person in South Africa. The second was William T. Stead, the famous, and probably also the most sensational, journalist of the day. The third was Reginald Baliol Brett, later known as Lord Esher, friend and confidant of Queen Victoria, and later to be the most influential advisor of King Edward VII and King George V. The details of this important conversation will be examined later. At present we need only point out that the three drew up a plan of organization for their secret society and a list of original members. The plan for organization provided for an inner circle, to be known as “The Society of the Elect,” and an outer circle, to be known as “The Association of Helpers.” Within The Society of the Elect, the real power was to be exercised by the leader, and a “Junta of Three.” The leader was to be Rhodes, and the Junta was to be Stead, Brett, and Alfred Milner. In accordance with this decision, Milner was added to the society by Stead shortly after the meeting we have described.” [1]

Of the Secret Societies goals and methods of operation Quigley writes, “The goals which Rhodes and Milner sought and the methods by which they hoped to achieve them were so similar by 1902 that the two are almost indistinguishable. Both sought to unite the world, and above all the English-speaking world, in a federal structure around Britain. Both felt that this goal could best be achieved by a secret band of men united to one another by devotion to the common cause and by personal loyalty to one another. Both felt that this band should pursue its goal by secret political and economic influence behind the scenes and by the control of journalistic, educational, and propaganda agencies…” [2]

Between 1910-1915 the Secret Society evolved into an international group of co-conspirators called Round Table Groups set up in seven nations: Britain, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, India, and the United States. In 1920 the Secret Society evolved into the Institutes for International Affairs and the Council on Foreign Relations. Many of the founding fathers belonged America’s first intelligence agency the INQUIRY.

Dirty Electric Cars: Worse Than Diesel

DRIVING A TESLA RESULTS IN MORE CO2 THAN A MERCEDES DIESEL, STUDY FINDS

While Canada's Federal Government, led by low IQ, jet-setting climate change hypocrite, Justin Trudeau, will pay you thousands — gouged from your neighbor in taxes — to drive a Tesla, the environmental benefit may be less than nothing. Thus according to a report in the Daily Caller:

A Tesla Model 3 is touted as a zero-emissions car by government regulators, but it actually results in more carbon dioxide than a comparable diesel-powered car, according to a recent study.

When the CO2 emissions from battery production is included, electric cars, like Teslas, are “in the best case, slightly higher than those of a diesel engine, and are otherwise much higher,” reads a release from the German think tank IFO.
But if you think the Government of Canada is insane, think about the US Government, which gave Tesla hundreds of millions in pollution credits.

On the Other Hand:

What’s better for the environment: diesel or battery-electric? Depends who you ask

Emmanuel Micron, France's Presidential Cuck, Wants a Penis On the Roof of Paris's "Our Lady" Christian Cathedral

Image source: The Voice of Europe
France's President Micron, who initially promised to restore Paris's Notre Dame cathedral to its former glory following a fire that destroyed the roof and spire, now proposes to have this monument to Christian faith rebuilt “consistent with our modern, diverse nation.”

Hence the proposal for a penis on the roof, as the ultimate finger from the globalist revolutionaries of France to Christians of both France and the World.

...  a proposal in Domus, the architecture magazine, by Tom Wilkinson, for the fallen spire to be replaced with an Islamic minaret
Much as traditionalists will hate to see one of the greatest achievements of Europe's Mediaeval Christian civilization thus defiled, I think this is a development to be greatly  welcomed. Once this symbol of ruling elite cuckery has been erected, the people of France will have no further room for doubt as to whether they have been cucked, or by whom.

In the meantime, vivre les Gilets Jaunes.

Britain Threatened By an Outbreak of Democracy

Mass democracy is, and always has been, a charade. It emerged, first, in Britain during the 19th century when, to appease a rapidly growing population of sometimes mutinous workers, the governing elite, both Whig and Tory factions, extended the franchise to an ever increasing proportion of the population.

Initially, with the Reform Act of 1832, the vote was extended to householders who paid a yearly rental of £10. The franchise was then repeatedly further expanded and in 1918, under the Representation of the People Act, it was granted to all adult males, and finally, in 1928, to all women.

During the 19th Century, the extension of the franchise had little impact on the composition of the government, as those newly enfranchised mostly voted deferentially for the aristocrats and their nominees who, in office, ran the country in accordance with the interests of the aristocratic and business elite. Reforms such as those limiting working hours and the employment of children, and providing for universal state-funded elementary education (1870)  were seen as beneficial both by the working masses and the more liberal elements among the elite.

Trouble arose, however, from the legalization of trades unions in 1871, as became apparent in the run-up to World War 1 when unions in rail transport and coal mining created an effective labor monopoly that threatened to plunge Britain into civil war. The conflict was postponed, however, by the outbreak of war with Germany, only to be resumed with the inconclusive General Strike of 1926. Thereafter, the conflict continued to undermine British industrial productivity until resolved decisively in favor of the employers by Margaret Thatcher in her war on striking coal miners (1984/85).

Generally, however, throughout the 20th century, the people remained deferential to the ruling class, a class that could claim to be vastly better educated that the common folk and therefore the only class fit to rule. Moreover, the mass media, controlled by millionaire press barons, or in the case of the BBC, the government, provided the public with political narratives that were generally in keeping with the policies of the establishment parties.

But by the end of the 20th Century, something like half of all school leavers were entering post-secondary education, mostly graduating with at least a bachelor's degree, and often a master's or doctoral degree too. This combined with the ease with which the Internet has made it possible for anyone to disseminate their political opinions widely and to challenge the political narratives of the mainstream media has resulted in the emergence of a threat of genuinely popular democracy.

For the first time, the people have opinions on, and interests in, almost every aspect of public policy and loudly demand that their voices be heard and their interests be served. Democratically elected rulers are thus confronted at last by the expectation that they act in accordance with the will of the people. This unprecedented situation has driven the elite to the manipulation, distortion, suppression and outright manufacture of news on a wholly unprecedented scale. Hence 9/11, Saddam's WMD's, "I'll build a wall," and all manner of other lies and hoaxes many of which are incorporated into school books, university texts and Hollywood blockbusters.

How this struggle will work out remains to be seen. But one angle that the elites are evidently determined to pursue is the genocide of the Western nations by a combination of reproductive suppression and mass replacement immigration. In this way, any silly notions about freedom, the rights of man, the rule of law and all that old fashioned crap that brought us to the present pass will be wiped from the minds of men. In their place will be the acceptance of tyranny, corruption and extremes of wealth and poverty such as is the normal experience of those migrating from the Third World to the First.

In the meantime, UK Prime Minister, Thereason May, continues the brave struggle on behalf of the globalist plutocracy to strangle the will of the people on Brexit while what has at least the appearance of  left–right collusion among supposed anti-Brexiteers keeps hope alive among those yearning to be free of the EU's globalist clutches.

The World-Saving Electric Car Hoax

Electric cars are quieter, accelerate faster and are cheaper to maintain than gas-powered cars. I say that based on personal experience. Moreover, many governments, Canada's for example, will force your poorer neighbor who drives a clapped-out gas-guzzler not only to subsidize your electric car purchase, but to pay a carbon tax on gasoline too. LOL.

But if you have an electric car, virtue is on your side. You are helping save us all from an 'orrible death from climate change caused by carbon emissions.

Except, well, not, since, for one thing, electricity has a carbon footprint of its own, especially when generated by burning diesel as, for instance, at this Tesla charging station.

And then there are multiple other reasons why owning an electric car will do nothing to lower your carbon footprint. For one thing, because building an electric car generates much more carbon dioxide than building a gas powered vehicle. This, according to a study by Christoph Buchal of the University of Cologne, and published by the Ifo Institute in Munich last week is due to:

the significant amount of energy used in the mining and processing of lithium, cobalt, and manganese, which are critical raw materials for the production of electric car batteries.
More here from Zero Hedge, in an article that concludes:

... maybe Elon Musk's plan to save the world with electric cars is the biggest scam of our lifetime...
That seems like an overstatement. But one can surely say that the impending bankruptcy of Musk's inflammable electric car company should be no cause for concern to environmentalists.

China Is Overtaking America in the Technology Race. Does It Matter?

Over at the Unz Review, Fred Reed writes of the astonishing technological rise of China from primitive, war-torn disaster area of forty years ago to the World's largest and most dynamic economy. 
Typically, Unz Review commenters attribute the speed with which China has eclipsed the US in so many ways to: (a) bad American Jews, (b) superior Chinese IQ, and (c) China's racial homogeneity. 
But such explanations may be entirely misconceived. All presuppose that America must do better. But the question that needs to be asked is: do those with the power to make the necessary changes care?
If the American elites are for global governance, why would they be concerned about shit on the streets of San Francisco, American intellectual degeneration, or the progressive replacement of America’s founding European population by people of alien race, religion and culture?
Once a global system of control is established, the citizens of the US and every other country will no longer be of any account except insofar as they are needed as the technically expert Morlocks to serve a tiny population of New World Order Eloi. What we are witnessing, surely, is a prelude to the end of the age of the proletariat. Indeed, the end of the proletariat. 
What we have is a globalist elite that views the mass of mankind as non-productive, wealth-destroying, environment-damaging vermin to be eliminated either through state-managed reproductive failure — already underway throughout the developed parts of the world, or a more rapid means, for example through the release of a virus engineered for lethality and uncontrollable spread, the vaccine against which will be available only to certain persons.

So the Roof of Notre Dame Cathedral Burned: Who Cares?

I like cathedrals, and any other stone-built churches. To enter such a building off a busy city street is to experience a hush that can induce a wonderful sense of euphoria. So, yes, if I lived in central Paris, I would be deeply saddened by the burning of this great church.

But otherwise, who cares?

The Maverick Philosopher asks pretty much the same question:
A Fox News commentator this morning opined that the world watched in horror [the burning of Notre Dame]. Really? The Islamic world? The leftist world?
So why should the world mourn the destruction of a church while remaining indifferent as the ruling elites systematically dismantles both the faith that that church was built to celebrate and the civilization constructed on the foundation of that faith?

Today, apparently, we are to view with horror the burning of an empty religious shell, while applauding the very rich familes that have come forward to repair the damage.
Better it would have been had those rich people offered their money to alleviate the hardships of the poor, or to repatriate the millions of aliens who the elites have invited in to replace the common people of France. Better both for the people of France and for the souls of those rich people*.

And to those who think that the burning of a Christian cathedral really matters, remember these words of the founder of it all:
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
* That the chief donors, Bettencourt-Meyers and Arnault, are Jewish only confirms an absence of Christian faith and hence the unimportance of the church the people of France..

“The Conservative leader refuses to denounce white supremacists!” Trudeau yells in the House of Commons. One of his ministers follows suit, and says that Scheer is “associated” with a neo-Nazi leader. Another minister says that Scheer “shares platforms” with white supremacists.

None of these things are true — Scheer has repeatedly denounced white supremacy in the House, and is in no way sympathetic to neo-Naziism. But it doesn’t matter.

The Liberal government, desperate to move on from the Lavscam scandal, has landed on a repellant strategy: brand the Conservative leader a Nazi sympathizer.
While, in responding, Andrew Scheer may not have turned the other cheek, exactly, his restraint in the face of lying provocation is remarkable:
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has just suggested his principal opponent, Andrew Scheer, is in league with white supremacists. Or neo-Nazis. Or both.

In response, Scheer said that calling people "Neanderthals'' or "neo-Nazis'' just for raising concerns about people crossing the border to seek asylum in Canada is unfair.

Thereason May: How she became PM, Her Defense Industry Ties, and Media Lies About the October Brextension


In a triple-header of revelations today, The Slog assembles the evidence to condemn the Prime Minister as an anti-democratic, unconstitutional and enthusiastic supporter of Superstate hegemony and coordinated European defence. We trace her suspicious rise to power, the defence agreements signed during 2018 that nobody knew about, and how the media have been cowed into censoring the real nature of the October 31st Article 50 extension agreement.
By John Ward:

Things were odd from the outset of the Brexit saga. What ought to have happened turned out, again and again, to be replaced by something abnormal.

David Cameron handed a hospital pass to the British People in early 2016 when he announced that there would be a Referendum on whether to Remain in the EU or Leave it. He did so because he felt certain that Remain would win, and thus once and for all shut up the 60-90 influential Leavers in his Party….while arresting any chance that there might be a mass desertion by that ginger group to UKIP.


During the referendum, I was told by two sources (one in Washington, the other in Brussels) that the UK “would not be allowed to leave the EU”. The reason given to me was geopolitical defence considerations. I assumed they were referring to ballot rigging. When Leave unexpectedly won, I regarded the source information as almost certainly wrong.

Part II. How May said "Brexit means Brexit, but then secretly signed away our military sovereignty

Theresa May is always happy to be photographed with our armed forces. But throughout 2018, she signed five separate EU military union directives that reliquished British control over them…..and kept Parliament in the dark about her neocon treachery. Secrecy has always been her preference. Her unconstitutional power-grab continues to march on, largely undetected by The People – and unreported by the mainstream British media.

Part III: The truth about Theresa May’s “flexible” extension

It cannot have escaped anyone’s attention that Theresa May always looks more at home among the Brussels neocons than she does when facing the House of Commons. Perhaps, being a parson’s daughter, she is more at home telling the truth to eurocrats than lying to MPs. In this third and final part of today’s three-parter, we look at the Devil in the detail of the Prime Minister’s less than flexible flextension agreement with the EU.

Rogue State Britain

By TruePublica: Leaving aside Britain’s past, most particularly that of empire, the country is not just continually moving towards authoritarianism it is beginning to demonstrate all the early signs of a rogue state. These are strong words but the actual definition of a rogue state is – “a nation or state regarded as breaking international law and posing a threat to the security of other nations.” Examples such as the illegal invasion of Iraq, Syria and latterly Libya are very clear. Irrespective of the technicalities, they all broke the rules of International laws or norms. But other examples demonstrate how lawless Britain as a state really is.

Chagos
Here, an entire population were forcibly removed from their island homeland at British gunpoint to make way for a US Air Force nuclear base, the people were dumped destitute over a thousand miles away, their domestic animals gassed by the British army, their homes fired and then demolished. To achieve this, Britain maliciously threatened the Mauritian government into ceding the Chagos Islands as a condition of its Independence.

Recently, the International Court of Justice found that the British occupation of the Chagos Islands was unlawful by a majority of 13 to 1. Britain rejected this ruling.

Canada's Housing Bubbles: Will They Burst Now, or After the Election

How do they measure up against the most splendid housing bubbles in the USA? Oops!
Wolfstreet, April 12, 2019: In Greater Vancouver, BC, Canada, house prices fell 0.5% in March from February, the eighth month in a row of declines, according to the Teranet-National Bank House Price Index released this morning. It was the sharpest eight-month decline since February 2013. The index is now down 4.3% from the peak in July 2018. And it’s down 2.1% compared to March last year.

This housing market had been on an extraordinary ride: From January 2002 to the peak in July 2018, the index skyrocketed 316% — meaning that prices more than quadrupled. And some of those gains are now unwinding:

Is Justin Trudeau Even Sane

As we pointed out several years ago, Justin Trudeau is the worst Canadian Prime Minister since his father Pierre Elliot Trudeau inflated the Federal Government deficit to 8% of GDP, while undermining the fertility of the nation with "no-fault" divorce and tacit approval of abortion in defiance of the law, as a result of which actions:
the Canadian dollar fell sharply, bottoming eventually at 63.11 cents US;

there was a general recognition among Canadian women that economic security is to be found not in the hard task of raising children, but in the pursuit of higher education and a career;

and, for the first time ever, the national fertility rate dipped below the replacement rate, and has continued falling ever since.
During the interim, between the Trudeau's there were four essentially abortive premierships, two Conservative (Joe Clarke and Kim Campbell) and two Liberal (John Turner and Paul Martin) and three significant governments, those of Brian Mulroney, Jean Chrétien and Steven Harper.

Brian Mulroney, let the Trudeau deficit ride, leaving it to the subsequent Liberal administration of Jean Chrétien to clean up, while signing the Free Trade Agreement with Canada's largest (by far) trading partner, the US, and later the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which included Mexico, and introducing the GST, a consumption tax with a rebate to low income earners.

Jean Chrétien brought the Federal budget deficit under control, while allowing the Canadian dollar to slump against the greenback, making Canadian manufacturing more competitive than it would otherwise have been in the face of low-wage competition from Mexico. Nevertheless, following the NAFTA agreement Canada lost out to Mexico as the largest supplier of autoparts to the United States.

Stephen  Harper's administration promoted oil sands development, thereby greatly boosting the economies of Alberta and Saskatchewan and strengthening the Canadian dollar, which returned to parity with the US dollar by the time Harper left office. The downside to increased oil exports and a strong dollar was a decline in Canada's international competitiveness in manufacturing, with the result that Ontario, formerly a manufacturing power house, is now a have-not province and the recipient of "equalization payments".

But if not all has gone well under administrations since that of Pierre Elliot Trudeau, at no time have things gone as disastrously and unnecessarily badly as under Trudeau the Second. For example, in handling relations with the United States — Canada's most important trade partner by far, with China — the world's largest economy and Canada's third largest trade partner, and India — the World's most populous nation, Justin Trudeau has managed to give offence to all.

With respect to the US, Canada has, throughout the 2016 US Presidential election campaign and ever since, used the state-controlled Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to run a  daily smear and jeer campaign directed at president Donald Trump. The result? Tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum, and a contemptuous American disregard for Canadian interests in the negotiation of a still unsigned (with Canada) Canada-US-Mexico Trade Agreement.

With respect to China, Justin Trudeau, in search of a trade agreement, went to Beijing to demand, as a condition, that China introduce workplace gender-equity laws. The result, naturally, was zero Chinese interest in a trade deal with Canada, a country with whom China has a massive trade surplus. Not unconnected with the imbecility of Trudeau's effort to interfere in China's domestic arrangements, China has banned the import of Canadian Canola seed and oil, heretofore Canada's second largest agricultural export.

With respect to India, Trudeau made his absurd and notorious fancy dress tour, adding injury to insult not only by taking with him his own Indian chef, but a Sikh nationalist convicted of attempting to murder an Indian cabinet minister. Surely not unconnected, India has since banned the import of Canadian pulse crops.

Domestically, Trudeau's chief accomplishments have been to put a stranglehold on oil exports through failure to permit construction of new pipelines. As a result, Canada, the World's fourth largest oil exporter, is reduced to the necessity of transporting oil to tidewater by rail, which is expensive, dangerous, and environmentally harmful.

And by far the greatest cause for concern, Trudeau has repeatedly demonstrated a contempt for the rule of law.

He did so when:
breaching the Federal Conflict of Interest Law by accepting the gift of a free family vacation from a registered government lobbyist, and sticking the Canadian taxpayer for several hundred thousand dollars in travel costs.

Pressuring the Attorney General to grant a deferred prosecution agreement to SNC-Lavalin, a Montreal-based corporation convicted of bribery and corruption on a massive scale both at home abroad.

Booting his fired Attorney General, Jodie Wilson-Raybould and former Treasury Board Minister, Dr. Jame Philpott from the Liberal Party caucus without, as required by law (albeit unenforceable), a caucus vote.
Which last point raises an interesting question. Why, exactly, did Dr. Jane Philpott, generally regarded as one of the most competent ministers in Trudeau's government, resign. At the time of her resignation, Dr. Philpott said that there was much that remained to come out concerning Trudeau's firing of the Attorney General, Jodie Wilson-Raybould.

But was that all there was to Dr. Philpott's decision? Perhaps not. Jane Philpott is a medical doctor with wide experience of public health issues, which raises this question: does she interpret Justin Trudeau's lawless behavior differently from other political spectators? In particular, does she interpret Trudeau's conduct as evidence of mental illness?

In short, does Jane Philpott see in the behavior of Justin Trudeau evidence of paranoid megalomania, an understandable risk in the son of Margaret Trudeau, a victim of bipolar schizophrenia, and the son of Pierre Elliot Trudeau, whose political heroes were among the world's most tyrannical dictators, Hitler (during his youth and before the collapse of the Nazi empire), Mao Tse Tung, responsible for the greatest state-organized slaughter of civilians during the Twentieth Century, and the comparatively small-time but ruthless killer and Commie, Fidel Castro.

Yes, in Justin Trudeau, Dr. Jame Philpott may well have diagnosed a madman capable of limitless harm to the Canadian nation, the non-existence of which he has already asserted.

Trudeau's Libel Action Reveals His Unfitness for Office

Andrew Scheer, Leader of the Opposition, has received a letter from JustinTrudeau's lawyer notifying him of the Prime Minister's intention to bring a libel suit against Scheer for statements made by Scheer concerning pressure brought to bear on former Attorney General, Jodie Wilson-Raybould, in relation to the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin on charges of bribery and corruption.

The letter states, in part:

On March 29, 2019 you issued a press statement [that] contained highly defamatory comments about Prime Minister Trudeau. ...

In particular:
1. “These documents and recordings are concrete evidence that proves Justin Trudeau led a campaign to politically interfere with SNC-Lavalin’s criminal prosecution.”

2. “Ms. Wilson-Raybould repeatedly told the Prime Minister and his top officials that their actions were ‘entirely inappropriate’ and amounted to ‘political interference’. Despite her objections, the Clerk of the Privy Council pressured her and made it clear that her job was on the line.”

3. “Justin Trudeau also told Canadians what he knew to be false. He knew that his Attorney General had serious concerns about his plan to get SNC-Lavalin off of serious criminal charges. But he looked Canadians in the eye and told them that no one had raised concerns with him. This is false and he owes Canadians an explanation.”

4. “The entire SNC-Lavalin scandal is corruption on top of corruption on top of corruption.Two cabinet ministers have resigned on principle and both Justin Trudeau’s top political advisor and his top civil servant have resigned in disgrace. The Prime Minister has lost the moral authority to govern and must resign.”
If this goes to court, Trudeau will either have to admit complete ignorance of what Butts, Wernick and other members of his staff were doing when they pressured Wilson-Raybould to order the Director of Public Prosecutions to grant SNC-Lavalin a deferred prosecution agreement, or he will have to deny what the taped conversation between Wilson-Raybould and David Wernick proves to be a fact; namely that Wernick cleary warned Wilson-Raybould that she either complied with the Prime Minister's wish in the matter of ending the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin or she'd be fired as Justice Minister and Attorney General.

 Either way, Trudeau's unfitness to head the government will be demonstrated. Indeed, the fact that he has threatened to bring such an idiotic suit against the Leader of the Opposition proves his unfitness for office. Any actual court proceedings would be a redundancy. Furthermore, by attempting by means of court action to deny the undeniable, Trudeau proves that he is liar intent on lying about the lies he's told. 

Trudeau has effectively sabotaged his own chances in the October general election, and if the Liberal Party wishes to be regarded as a realistic contender in the forthcoming election, rather than a cult headed by a dim-witted dictator wannabe, they'd better act soon to find a new leader.

Operation Gladio: The Unholy Alliance

BOOK SUMMARY:

By A.C. Black

Paul L. Williams: Operation Gladio, The Unholy Alliance
On the hot summer morning of Aug. 2, 1980 a massive explosion ripped apart the main waiting room of the Bologna railway station. Eighty-five people were killed and hundreds more injured. Though at first blamed on Italy’s legendary urban guerrillas, The Red Brigades, it soon emerged that the attack had, in fact, originated from within the ‘deep state’ of the Italian government itself.

The full nature of this secret parallel state would only come to light a decade later when the Italian premier, Giulio Andreotti, under questioning from a special commission of inquiry, revealed the existence of arms caches stashed all around the country and which were at the disposal of an organization which later came to be identified as ‘Gladio’.

The members of this group turned out to include not only hundreds of far-right figures in the intelligence, military, government, media, Church and corporate sectors, but a motley assortment of unreconstructed WW2 fascists, psychopaths and criminal underworld types to boot. And despite Andreotti’s attempts to airbrush the group as ‘patriots’ it appeared evident to much of the rest of the Italian polity that these seemed rather more like pretty bad folk indeed. Little did they know. Follow-up research by the likes of Daniele Ganser, Claudio Celani, Jurgen Roth and Henrik Kruger traced connections to similar groups spread throughout Europe of which all were found to be deep state terrorist organizations, and all of which were found, ultimately, to be subservient unto the highest levels of the CIA and NATO command structures.

The moniker ‘Gladio’ (after the two-edged sword used in classical Rome) was eventually broadened to include a bewildering host of related deep state terrorist structures including: ‘P2’ In Italy, ‘P26’ in Switzerland, ‘Sveaborg’ in Sweden, ‘Counter-Guerrilla’ in Turkey and ‘Sheepskin’ in Greece. This (hardly definitive) European list was then found to have connections not only to virtually every US sponsored secret state terrorist organization the world over (including the likes of Operation Condor in Latin America), but also to many of the global drug cartels that provided the secretive wealth needed to fund and otherwise lubricate the whole rotting, corrupt shebang.

If all this sounds sinister enough, it pales in light of the detailed structure of the dazzlingly diabolical Gladio edifice. ...

Boeing Corporation's Board of Directors and the Anticipation of Aviation Disasters

The English novelist and aviation engineer, Nevil Shute, wrote two books about air disasters. The first, his 1948 novel, No Highway, centered on the crash of a newly introduced British airliner, the Reindeer, a crash attributed to pilot error until an obscure aviation engineering researcher concluded, and ultimately proved, that structural failure due to metal fatigue was the cause. The story eerily foreshadowed two 1954 two crashes of the deHavilland airliner named the Comet (after Santa's Reindeer?) due to structural failure.

Shute's second air disaster story comprised a major portion of his autobiography, Slide Rule, and concerned Britain's government-sponsored entry into airship aviation. Two ships were commissioned by the government, the R100 which was built by a subsidiary of the engineering firm Vickers-Armstrong, the other, the R101, constructed by the British Air Ministry. Shute, was the chief stress engineer and, in the final stages of construction, chief engineer, of the R100 project.

The R100 closely complied with the design specs and completed a successful round-trip flight from England to Canada in June, 1930. Shortly thereafter, the greatly overweight, Government-built R101 crashed and burned near Beauvais, France on the first night of its maiden voyage from England to India. The disaster led the Government to terminate the airships program and the successful, private-sector R100 was broken up.

Comparing the two programs, Shute concluded that the bureaucrats overseeing the Air Ministry program lacked the motivation necessary to make the tough decisions required to ensure that the R101 was developed and put into service in a prudent fashion. In contrast, Shute argued, a private company such as built the R100 has a board of directors who not only have a large financial stake in the viability of the business, but deep knowledge of the industry in which the business operates and hence the judgement necessary to ensure that the business is conducted in a prudent fashion.

But today, Shute's assumptions as to the competence and the financial commitment of the directors of a large company such as Boeing seem no longer valid. The only Board member with advanced engineering experience is Dennis A. Muilenburg, who holds the titles of President, Chairman, and CEO. he holds a BS in Aerospace Engineering and an MS in Aeronautics and Astronautics.

The rest of the talent appears to be in anything but aviation engineering:
Robert E. Bradway, BS Biol.; D.L. Calhoun, BS Accounting;

A.D. Collins, Jr., who holds an MBA and is author of Childrens' book series: Adventures of Archibald and the Jackabeb;

K. Duberstein, Chief of Staff to President Reagan, graduate in Law;

Admiral E.P. Giambastiani, Jr., a graduate in Law, with good credentials in submarine handling;

 Lynn J. Good, a graduate in Systems Analysis and Accounting;

Larry Kellner, a former airline exec. with a degree in Accounting;

Caroline Kennedy, daughter of the late President Kennedy, former US ambassador, and a lawyer;

Ronald A. Williams, a management consultant;

Mike Zafirovski, a Jack Welch protegé at GE and a swimming scholar at Edinboro U, (discipline? swimming perhaps);

and last but by no means least, Nikki Hailey, currently a board member nominee, who's done just about everything, from being a US Congresswoman, a (former) Canadian, state governor, and most recently, Trump's ambassador to the UN.
That's a team I'd trust to do a cover-up of the 737MAX's inherent instability and cover-up of the engineering ineptitude of the cover-up. But who want's to risk their life as a passenger on a plane built by those guys?
