Perhaps the only positive thing about the deteriorating social and environmental conditions on our planet is the fact that they tend to drive our ‘leaders’ to increasingly desperate acts to secure their positions in power. As part of this process, this ‘elite’ are also given to telling increasingly outrageous and transparent lies. Take the Syria/Turkey/Russia/EU/US refugee debacle that has been raging for over 2 years for example. Read More →

A poignant portrait of one of the British government’s terrorists, ruthlessly gunned down by Putin himself.

A headline, from today, on the British Guardian newspaper’s web site:

Murder in Istanbul: Kremlin’s hand suspected in shooting of Chechen

‘Oh, those terrible Russians and that ruthless Putin are up to their old extrajudicial murder tricks again! Will they never learn about real democracy! At least we, the great Western public (and therefore representatives of the ‘global community’), are holding them to account as best we can by imposing ‘sanctions’ and hysterically demonizing them every time they fly a plane near Scotland.’ Read More →

ImageThe obvious result and therefore goal of the horrific Paris attacks that were blamed on ISIS terrorists is to provoke the potential socio/political ‘fracture point’ of French Muslims vs. (mostly lapsed) French Christians and ignite a debate on what should be done about France and Europe’s ‘multi-culturalism’ in an age of Jihadist terrorism.

Scenes from the multiple coordinated terror attacks in Paris on Friday 13th November 2015

“It’s so shocking. When Charlie Hebdo happened, it was a specific, targeted attack. But this time it’s terrifying because it is just random, innocent people going about their lives. I know a lot of people in Paris – there is panic and disorder here, no one can understand what’s going on. We are all in a state of complete shock.”
