      US Craves Insecurity & War

      It surely is the greatest Orwellian paradox that the United States is a permanent member of the UN Security Council. For the US is a behemoth that craves insecurity and war for its very existence.

      The US mainstream media have moved hastily to shut down the Epstein affair as a prison suicide. End of story. Move on. And anyone who doesn’t move on but instead challenges the official story is dismissed as a “conspiracy theorist”.

      Dry Your Eyes Owen

      by

      Let’s get something straight: I cannot stand Owen Jones. I hate his sixth form politics. I despise his arrogance. I think he is an agitator. He condones violence against what he terms as Nazis, i.e. Farage and any Brexiteer.

      Imagine the response if protesters were to smash up JFK or Heathrow airports, closing down international flight services. The US and British authorities would have culprits rounded up and jailed, or worse, shot dead on the spot by armed police.

      Guns Do Not Kill People

      by

      Like everyone else, I condemn the two mass shootings in the US. However, unlike the Democrats who could not wait to make political capital out of the tragedy or the MSM who didn’t miss a heartbeat in denouncing this as 'far-right terror' and repeating that the terrorist was white, I think the slaughter deserves more careful consideration.
