Just as UK PM Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson makes out that his surname is Johnson, despite the surname on his paternal grandfather’s birth certificate being clearly Kemal, so too does Democrat Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris make little mention of her élite Tamil Brahmin heritage.
Whether re-purposing the original anti police brutality Black Lives Matter hashtag or pretending to be a European artistocrat as opposed to the great grandson of an élite Turk, when courting public favour, politicans and their families are obliged to conform to a rigid set of underlying assumptions.
If these politicians are willing to publicly compromise on day one, then what won’t they be willing to sacrifice when they’re in power?
The Wall Street Journal, which I assume will be rooting for Trump, has published an article about Kamala Harris’s mother’s side.
This one’s called “Nevermind the Backstop” by Obstakula Vernakula.
Versailles — The Remix
I don’t believe Frau Von Der Leyen has yet been subjected to much critique on these pages.
She was crowned President of the European Commission a little later than planned.
This was due to some of her proposed Commissioners being turned down.
The original French nominee, Sylvie Goulard, was rejected due to ongoing fraud / corruption charges at EU level.
Of course this didn’t stop Christine Lagarde becoming head of the IMF and subsequently becoming the Chair of the European Central Bank.
For those of you who do not self-identify as Bank-Watchers here is a picture of Ms Lagarde on one of her first days in office, check out the ratio:
Twas pointed out that there are more painted women on the walls than real women around the table.
The reason why it is only white men in the ECB offices in this photo is that they are the sitting Chairmen of the various national European Central Banks.
They just happen to all be middle aged white guys.
Which makes perfect sense to me – but doesn’t stop the photo being a PR disaster.
The ECB and the rest of the EU institutions seem indifferent to even the notion of the real time PR disaster.
And why should they care?
They are all civil servants on pukka pensions and it is their organisation that has all the authority.
The media can dance to their tune.
But it is civil society’s ire they should do be doing more to assuage.
Which they never do.
Apparently there was a €1 trillion Green EU stimulus launched this week.
Which I’m guessing will have some impact on some bond market somewhere.
Either creating a new market and more places for pension funds to invest or cannibalising another market that would have been trying to achieve the same goal organically before the influx of EU capital.
Green finance isn’t new.
Former UK Chancellor Philip Hammond championed London as a global centre of Green Finance even as he was voting to expand Heathrow Airport.
He did this with no sense of awkwardness and no platform of note so much as batted an eyelid.
The other Phil, Phil Hogan is the new Irish Commissioner for trade.
He will be replacing Michel Barnier and has a tough reputation.
Hogan used to be Commissioner for agriculture.
How is this going to work?
Border in the Irish Sea and corporation tax competition.
Surely this will herald a race to the bottom.
Thierry Breton is the French Commissioner for the Single Market.
This means that among other things he is in charge of Defence.
Till last month Breton was head of ATOS, the firm that sent long term sick people to work, in the UK, and cut their benefits.
Breton has already therefore had a hand in killing hundreds of innocent disabled Brits.
This list of deaths can be added to the bodycount from his time at France Telecom / Orange, the company with one of the highest suicide rates in the world.
So Breton has killed the public and killed his staff.
Which makes him EU Corporate Criminal Aristocracy.
Apparently the EU Single Army and ECB QE will keep Britain entangled in EU affairs for a long time to come.
The EU stitch up is worth returning to at some stage. . .
There is a puff piece in the FT about MBS, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. It touches on the killing of Jamal Kashoggi but praises MBS for “ripping up the rule book” and liberalising the country.
The re-opening of the old town Diriyah, Anthony Joshua’s recent fight there, the opening of cinemas and allowing women to drive are all seen as sign that MBS is liberalising.
But feminism itself is not welcome in Saudi Arabia. MBS has arrested many women’s rights activists despite recently bringing an end to the country’s ban on gender segregation in restaurants.
But the real news in Saudi from a business perspective has been the Initial Public Offering (IPO) of the Saudi State oil firm ARAMCO on the Saudi Stock Exchange.
Interesting to compare the EU Climate Stimulus and the Aramco Float.
They supposedly stand for the exact opposite. One to transition us away from the other.
The EU refer to being Climate Neutral. Does this mean Saudi Oil will not be penetrating fortress Europe? Likewise for Russian Gas?
Or does it instead mean that the same EU / US banks and energy trading firms are right behind both strategies which, rather than reducing emissions and consequently pollution, will instead have a net effect that approximates to somewhere around zero.
Richard Sandor must be licking his lips at the chance to develop new climate futures markets. The contradiction at the heart of these ponzi schemes appears to simply go without saying. There used to be organisations called Carbon Trade Watch and CDM (Clean Development Mechanism) Watch that tracked the fraud that is Carbon Finance.
My friend Roger Lewis in Sweden is very good on this stuff.
He blogs prolifically.
Though I often can’t keep up with his writing, his source material is brilliant.
In conversation he always explains what he really means, which for newbies like me is useful.
Roger and I speak on Skype quite frequently and strands of his thinking often appear on this website.
We sometimes upload the chats to Bitchute or YouTube.
Roger has read a lot more than me on many different topics and will helpfully quote relevant poets and philosophers to help get me over the line.
If you like any of what I write about, do check out his work.
A friend has patiently trained me up (online) to do this using IMAGEMAGICK on the command line.
My father was a mainframe programmer (for ARAMCO) so it is nice for me to suddenly be writing out code for something i find meaningful.
That’s the thing about learning. If it isn’t useful, why would you remember?
The Toxic Sludge is Good for You line is taken from a 1994 book by John Stauber (and others). It is a study of the PR industry. I thoroughly recommend it.
John Stauber is still around and tweeted this a few hours ago.
It took me a bit longer than I would have liked to do the speech bubbling yesterday, but I enjoyed it and feel my new image policy has already given my output, and specifically my writing, a new lease of life.
Lord Letwin DeRegulator ((Dominator)) ((Der is no Udder))
Wanna Kiss Myself
It’s quite something to see Arch-Remainers parachute Arch-Thatcherite Oliver Letwin into his new emergency-stylerole as Lord Liberal of Remain.
But does this not slightly give the game away?
That we’re in for a Mandelsonian Blairite Johnson Miller Faragiste Zero Regulation Putin Trump Murdoch Roy Cohn-style Apocalyptic #TINA-style Brexit.
A fool & his attention are soon hacked.
On the BBC yesterday he was made to look as though he was attempting to thwart Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal:
But on Andrew Marr today he said he would happily vote for it.
It is testament to the Billionaire BBC and Press Baron propaganda machine that Letwin was lauded by thousands in Central London for appearing to block Boris’ Brexit and all the deregulation that will come with it, when nothing could be further from the truth.
In June 2017 Letwin wrote this piece for Evening Standard Editor George Osborne. Note the use of the term Crypto-Marxist. Yesterday he relied on John McDonnell’s vote. I smell shenanigans.
The Real Deal
This is more like it (from August)
The new EU / Boris withdrawal agreement is stuffed with deregulation. No wonder Letwin says he’ll vote for it. Interesting that they put a border around Ireland.
Drift to Union
In 1989 Oliver Letwin wrote Drift to Union: Wiser Way to a Wider Community.
This was one of the early Eurosceptic works and is said to have radicalised Brexit Headbanger and all round swivel-eyed loon Bernard Jenkin.
Check out the lyrics:
In his autobiography, Hearts and Minds, Oliver Letwin admits to being hoist by his own petard in regard to Jenkin and the rest of the “bastards”.
Letwin of course didn’t invent Euroscepticism.
Paedo Harvey Proctor was a eurosceptic long before Letwin came on the scene. He was an Enoch Powell fan. Powell, though a genius in the linguistic realm, was also said variously to be a racist, a eurosceptic, a monetarist and a paedophile. Proctor is well known to have been all of the above.
Tony Benn was a Eurosceptic too and bonded with Powell over their mutual disdain for the EU. Just as Corbyn has always been against the Bosses Union. God knows why he and John McDonnell have U-turned now!
Deregulation is the thing which has been the only political topic for the last forty years but which the BBC and other channels of course pretend isn’t actually happening.
Racist though they are, the executives at the BBC would prefer to talk about racism than deregulation!
The gargantuan effort of miseducating the nation would take years of deprogramming to eventually be remedied.
The BBC are happy to refer to unregulated sectors as being bad, but never to deregulation as a political choice.
Check out the spike from 2015 in the graph below. They pretend the stats over the decade are bad, but the inflection point is the deregulation bill of 2015. There was a clause in the bill about privatising and outsourcing children’s homes. I called the Children’s Society, who did this research, at the time, but they couldn’t care less. The graph appears in the video below it.
Again the stat below is for 2012 to 2019 but I suspect the bulk of the rise is from 2015. Some Tory donors will have made big money from the Deregulation Bill.
The Deregulation Bill of 2015 passed almost without mention. Sponsored by Ken Clarke and Oliver Letwin. Both of whom featured in Iain Duncan Smith’s speech yesterday.
So Johnson, Clarke, Letwin, and Duncan Smith are all pimping vulnerable kids into prostitution, trafficking, drug addiction and misery for the sake of a couple of quid. And the BBC say nothing.
Matt Hancock signed off on the Deregulation Bill at the same time as he was talking up TTIP.
Lord Hunt of Kings Heath, a Labour Lord, represented Labour for the Deregulation Bill in the Lords against the coalition’s Lib Dem Lord Saltaire.
I watched Hancock and Hunt in Parliament on the same day in January 2015.
Little did I know that Britain would leave the EU and Trump torpedo TTIP.
Or that Hancock would become Health Minister.
But weirdest of all was when I found out that Lord Hunt was on the books of Tory former health Minister Baroness Cumberlege’s lobbying firm : Cumberlege Connections.
How transparently fucked up is that? A leading Labour Lord being on a Tory’s lobby outfit’s payroll. And guess who else is on Cumberlege’s books?
Only Baroness Browning, the chair of ACOBA, the body that is supposed to police the revolving door. Browning is literally doing the thing she is supposed to be guarding against. Fox in charge of chicken house on a meta-fucking-level.
Speaking of meta, that is what the deregulation bill was. It took bits from pre-existing laws. Same as Brexit is doing to workers rights. Snipping them away in one go.
After the Deregulation bill was passed Sajid Javid became Business Secretary and said he wanted to cut even more Red Tape. The Cameron One in Two Out and One in Three Out Deregulation policies were eventually copied in Brussels and by Donald Trump.
We are the kings of below the radar human rights violations.
And the BBC is key in disarming, disinforming, destroying modern Britain.
Paedo Protection Unit
Concealing deregulation debates from its audience has been as big a con trick as the VIP sex scandal it pulled with Jimmy Savile. It’s tried to pretend Westminster doesn’t have a paedo / rent boy / VIP sex ring problem but, again, it’s plain as day that the BBC is protecting paedos like Harvey Proctor.
Proctor’s winning the Paedo PR war with help from the likes of Stephen Fry, Craig Dillon, and Tarsh Consulting.
The associates on Daniel Janner’s Paedo pressure group FAIR look like they’re almost all evil. I would say Liam Allan has been utterly duped into joining.
For the link between privatisation, profit and paedophilia listen to this podcast from 2018 that connects upskirting scandal MP Sir Christopher Chope who used to run Wandsworth Council with the drugging and raping of Teresa Cooper and other women as part of the Big Pharma experiments that were conducted at Kendall House in the early eighties.
Teresa is an inspiration – do find out more about her. Amazing Woman.
Letwin’s wife, Isabel, was head of Legal Services at the Department of Work and Pensions and the Department of Health during the Health and Social Care Act of 2012.
The Act did more to open up the NHS to the Private Sector than any other.
Pushed through by Letwin’s wife and Lib Dem peer Tim Clement Jones while Letwin himself was the eminence grise of the then coalition cabinet.
Cameron had put Letwin in every Cabinet Committee and let him run the Country via the Cabinet Office.
Clement Jones was Miriam Gonzalez Durantez’s boss at DLA Piper as well as being the Lib Dems’ Treasurer & Health spokesman in the Lords.
Miriam Gonzalez Durantez is a trade and competition lawyer who worked for Chris Patten in Brussels. After working at DLA Piper she moved to the London office of US law firm Dechert. She is currently Vice Chair of UBS Europe and at the beginning of the year she moved to California with her family and joined Cohen Grasser.
Miriam Gonzalez Durantez is married to former UK Deputy Prime Minister and current Facebook Vice President for Global Affairs and Comms, Nick Clegg.
Clegg of course worked for reputed paedo Leon Brittan in Brussels.
Will Facebook’s new currency Libra be linked to UK DWP benefits payments?
AI & Govt Welfare Contracts
Tata Consulting Services have a contract to supply platforms for Aadhaar, the Indian biometric welfare system,
as well as the private sector AI offshoot for UK benefits — BPDTS.
But they are still trying to make it look glam to attract “talent” to its Newcastle offices. Offering Datajams, Dojos, and hackathons. When in actual fact they are just persecuting, traumatising and often killing people who they should be helping.
Tata have been here for 10 years:
Aadhaar – Indian Biometric ID System
This is what can happen when things go wrong – and they have been going wrong for a long time already.
Cathy O’Neill’s Weapons of Math Destruction is brilliant on this.
Keir Starmer was the lawyer for the McLibel case that was so embarrassing for McDonalds. He went on to become Director of Public Prosecutions. A super political job. They say he’s a proper deep state man.
How funny that John McDonnell, Jeremy Corbyn, Tom Watson, Keir Starmer and OLIVER LETWIN all voted, against Boris, for the same bill.
Were they really all voting against a crash-out?
I am of the opinion that no deal would be better than the one that Boris has agreed.
The Meaning of Meaning
Here’s my mate Roger Lewis and I trying to make sense of events.
Great NHS Heist
If you liked the themes in this blog you would probably like the upcoming film by Dr Bob Gill and Drew McFadyen, The Great NHS Heist.
Yannick Jadot reckons he’s in with a shot for the Presidential Elections come 2022.
Will it be a run-off between him and Macron or will Marine Le Pen make it through to the deuxieme tour?
Either way, he is on form in this video in which he accuses President Macron of ignoring the fact that France is engaging in deforestation in Guyana, Malaysia and Indonesia while also importing Palm Oil in violation of EU law.
This is the type of platform that is simply not made available to UK Green or “Left wing” politicians.
BBC would not dream of allowing criticism of the Conservative Party.
When Laura Kuenssberg was accused of bias against the Labour Party, the complaint was rejected by her direct superior, hard Brexiteer Robbie Gibb, who then went on to become Theresa May’s head of communications.
Before, during and after Robbie Gibb’s time with Theresa May his brother, Nick Gibb, was Schools Minister.
Are there not supposed to be rules against this sort of thing?
As for the Greens in England, just a few weeks ago, Caroline Lucas proposed an all white all female cabinet as a solution to Brexit.
Upfront identity politics!
For the link between Environmentalism and Conservatism one doesn’t have to travel very far.
This piece came out recently on New York Times:
One can only speculate as to whether Boris Johnson’s father, Stanley Kemal-Johnson, crossed paths with Mrs Cordelia Scaife May when he worked on population at the World Bank in New York.
That other famous philanthropist David Koch died last week. He who made his money from oil from land he and his family stole from indigenous Indians.
The Kochs have funded the resurgence in Tea Party-style “nativist” US and UK Conservatism and it is to them that Boris Johnson owes much of his popularity.
“Boris”, real name, Alexander Kemal, (his grandfather (Stanley’s dad) was born Osman Wilfred Kemal), has hired plenty of think tankers on his various press teams and many of them will have been funded, albeit indirectly, by the Kochs.
Brendan O Neil of Spiked admits to receiving Koch money and, the contrarian that he is, permanently puts out odes to white nationalists, asset strippers and forest clearing land grabbers (pussy grabbers too).
Meanwhile we have Brendan’s sister in crypto-fascist arms Carrie Symonds (Boris’s latest squeeze) selling herself as an Oceans protector and protector of birds & women’s rights (surely you mean Ghislaine Maxwell).
I missed the Camel fair in Pushkar when I visited India many years ago. Not sure what the difference is between a Camel Fair, a Birdfair, Jeffrey Epstein’s house or a Libyan Slave Auction for that matter.
“Boris” trades off the idea that one of his ancestors manumitted his beautiful slave girl so he could marry her. And we all know Boris is a stickler for tradition.
“Johnson” visited Standard and Independent owner Evgeny Lebedev’s castle unaccompanied when he was Foreign Minister in 2018.
He’s not answering any questions about it. So he could well have fucked a goat and drank the blood a newly defiled child at the altar of Koch / Saud / Kushner for all we know.
Yes there are supposed to be rules about this stuff, but if the press are in your pocket…
“Johnson”‘s dad Stanley wrote a book recently called Kompromat.
And in Naked Gun 2 & a half Lt. Leslie Nielsen aka Frank Drebin says, of the boxing, “All I know is never bet on the white guy”.
Similarly, “Never argue with a man who buys his ink by the barrel.”
Still, in 2008, when he wasn’t yet London Mayor, “Boris” Kemal was interviewed by Michael Wolff for Vanity Fair.
Wolff went on to write Fire and Fury, the book that got Steve Bannon ejected from the White House.
In the article, entitled The Boris Show, Johnson muses on the probability that he himself (with investors) would run and own the Spectator Magazine (which he edited at the time).
Smelling a rat, he then accuses Wolff of only interviewing him so he could size him up on behalf of Vanity Fair’s Condé Nast owners so that they themselves could then put in a bid.
Turning on the charm, Johnson goes on to say, of any potential foreign billionaire owner:
I heard about this quote in recently deceased Heathcote Williams’ 2016 book Brexit Boris: From Mayor to Nightmare.
The G7 Biarritz meeting is the perfect example of Boris at his most Vichy-like.
Half the UK seems to think that because “Boris” is white and has been to Eton that “Johnson”-Kemal is not capable of the most Vichy-like treachery.
How ironic that Biarritz is in southern France:
Boris Johnson’s name is as much Boris Johnson as Stephen Yaxley Lennon is Tommy Robinson.
These people pick show biz masks and masquerade as Super Patriots, based on their fake names.
At least Priti Patel, Sajid Javid and Dominic Raab have kept their names!
But on that topic, and speaking as a first generation immigrant (my parents are from Northern Sri Lanka) I find it interesting that Javid, Patel, Raab and Johnson are first second and third generation immigrants.
And, despite their lip service to tradition, the Royal Family, and Winston Churchill, they regard most Brits as fundamentally workshy.
And they have no qualms about reinforcing Nazi-like eugenic values in the UK welfare and employment structures.
Who would have thought such evil psychopathy could be served up by this dream team of Muslims, Jews and Hindus?
Machiavellian Political Correctness was the key to backdoor asset strip, and set fire to regulation, meaning human rights.
And all the while Boris’s Girlfriend Carrie Symonds pretends to care about women.
Let them eat cake. Not tonight, Josephine.
Because Boris is too busy packing kiddy fudge in the dungeon of a castle with his secretary for pensions, welfare and the disabled, Amber Rudd.
But seriously, speaking of Boris and Paedophilia, there is a link.
He told Conservative radio host Nick Ferrari that money spent investigating historic child sex abuse was £60m “spaffed” up a wall.
It turns out that Craig Dillon, who runs Westminster Digital, his social media adviser, has the contract to promote Cliff Richard, and the convicted sadistic evil incarnate paedo Harvey Proctor.
Here’s Harriet Harman, herself compromised on the topic of paedophilia.
She ran Liberty when it was called NCCL (National Council for Civil Liberties).
Her Uncle, Lord Longford, wrote a report on pornography and went on a tour of Scandinavia with Jimmy Savile and Cliff Richard in the 70s. Though Harman is asked about Cliff Richard in the interview, which has now been suppressed by the BBC, no mention is made of her Parliamentarian Uncle’s links with paedophiles and murderers, Cliff Richard, or of her own connections with the Paedophile Information Exchange:
All this grooming going on, and so much protection for perpetrators.
Proctor worked for the Duke of Rutland in 2015 when he was raided by the police looking for evidence of paedophilia.
Here’s Rutland trying to help Proctor get a payout from the Met:
Proctor is campaigning for anonymity for the accused but in reality he is campaigning for compensation. He was the one who not only voluntarily ended his own anonymity, he named other co-accused into the bargain.
Those who were innocent have Proctor to blame for the public undermining of their reputations!
The understanding is that Proctor is into beating rent boys in school uniform. Newspapers ran stories on this and he’s paid fines for it in the UK and has been spotted with young rent boys in Morocco.
None of the recent news reports on Proctor mention any of this stuff.
The Duke of Rutland for who he worked is in Jeffrey Epstein’s address book. Several times. There is a connection between Rutland and Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s main procurer and daughter of disgraced publisher and fraudster Robert Maxwell aka the Bouncing Czech.
Maxwell and Epstein are both rumoured to be Israeli intelligence assets.
Proctor appears to think he can do a Boothby:
Lord Boothby (a Tory) was a friend of Churchill’s and the Krays. He was an alcoholic, a gambler and into rent boys. When the Mirror (before Maxwell bought it) published a story about the above photo (without printing it), the then PM Harold Wilson had the story shut down because one of his own MPs Tom Driberg moved in the same circle and Wilson feared blowback (excuse the pun) if Driberg’s name got mentioned.
There was an election coming up and the Profumo affair had already given the press and public a bit of an appetite for scalps and scandals.
So Boothby sued the Mirror and won £40k. More than £500k in today’s money.
Looks like the vile paedo Proctor is doing the same. Wanting to sue the police for calling a paedo a paedo.
But not to worry, Priti Patel and Boris Johnson are trying to ram through facial recognition, GM food, and tasers to all police as if everyone consents and no-one notices.
This is a golden age for propaganda. The BBC is an utterly out of control fascist corporatist machine. It is conducting psy-ops via iPlayer on a gargantuan scale. It has learned much from Savile.
I am trying to get them to hand over the Future of Farming GM reports that they did on Breakfast tv last week.
You would think I was Julian Assange angling for a Royal Family Incest tape featuring Charles, Andrew, Mountbatten and one of the gardeners.
The GM issue is live and they won’t permit debate.
On Saturday they were getting everyone ready for all Police to have Tasers. Don’t they realise that proper criminals will get tasers too?
I emailed the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) about the FBI allegations that Lord Mountbatten (ex Viceroy of India, Prince Phillip’s uncle, mentor to Charles, member of the Lords and former head of UK Armed Forces) was a paedophile who visited the Northern Irish children’s home Kincora for sex with young boys.
They refused to commit.
I asked them about BBC reports that paedophiles operate with impunity right now because of staff shortages on the Forensics side at Sexual Assault Referral Centres.
They refused to commit.
I asked about Epstein related paedophila.
They refused to commit.
Boris is getting what he wants. Paedophiles operate with impunity and privatisation marches on. The Amazon forest burns, he gaslights with his Tory PR bit of stuff and very soon will have successfully lobbied for Evening Standard Editor and former Tory Chancellor, George Osborne, to be named head of the IMF (with Donald Trump’s help).
Bolsonaro, Netanyahu and Johnson are all friends with Trump.
This country has been subjected to a full on Nazi Coup.
Boris is being openly Vichy-like with no-one better to serve up the medicine that Priti Patel and Sajid Javid.
