We all know what false flag attacks are. When coupled with the Fake News media we have a potent lie machine in the hands of the Deep State.
The alleged chemical attack on Douma in Syria, in April 2018, supposedly by the Assad government, happened just as the Syrian army was achieving victory over one of the many jihadist groups fighting in the country.
Immediately, the American Deep State and its tribe of presstitutes wound up the propaganda machine against the “animal Assad” for unleashing chemical weapons on his own population. Why Assad would attempt to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory was never explained, or even entertained.
As we are now discovering, the whole thing was a false flag designed to provide another pretext for another attack on Syria. The OPCW has been discredited as the leaked reports show that many relevant facts were suppressed.
Watch the excellent report on “The Corbett Report” [here] for a detailed background. Events are still unfolding….
An excellent paper by Mark Mills lays out the erroneous assumptions and unscientific thinking behind the “Green Energy” crusade. In “An Exercise in Magical Thinking” he shows clearly how none of the claims hold up under scrutiny and the entire process is an exercise in futility.
Be warned, there’s a good deal of engineering in it and, shock and horror, some appeal to actual physics, which is what Mother Nature uses to run the real world.
“The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits”. So said the great Einstein years ago.
As living proof of his brilliant observation, we are now treated to St Greta of Doom, the teenage half-wit from Sweden who thinks she can “…see carbon dioxide in the air”.
Cruelly used by unscrupulous politicians trawling for the votes of the credulous, and eco-racketeers seeking to fleece the taxpayers yet again, this poor ill-informed girl should be sent back to school to learn some basic science. Worse than that are the hordes of politicians, journalists, lawyers, fake news reporters–the snake-oil salesmen of the modern world–exploiting her for all its worth to foist their end-of-the-world hysteria on all of us.
Nearly 500 scientists and engineers have just sent a letter to the UN urging them not to sign on to this hysterical tsunami of madness. There is no climate emergency. The world will not end in ten years. The only real threat to ourselves is the madness enveloping the chattering classes. The only real effect of all this hysteria will be the wasting of billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money on absurd projects that will go nowhere.
Look at all the failed predictions of the last fifty years of climate hysteria.
Every now and then, hysterical movements sweep through nations. In times past, there was the South Sea Bubble, the Children’s Crusade in the Middle Ages, the Tulip Mania, the Mississippi Scheme, and many more. Many of these were described in fascinating detail in Charles MacKay’s book of 1841, “Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds”. It should be required reading for all politicians. (I would add journalists but I’m not sure if many of them can actually read.)
As MacKay says at one point;
Every age has its peculiar folly — some scheme, project, or phantasy into which it plunges, spurred on either by the love of gain, the necessity of excitement, or the mere force of imitation. Failing in these, it has some madness, to which it is goaded by political or religious causes, or both combined.
Climate hysteria is the current mania. Politicians are its mountebanks and the Fake News Media its poltroons. Infusions of Reality may cure it, but much damage may be done first.
A reporter from Rebel Media thrown out of a meeting by Andrew Scheer? Not “accredited”? Handcuffed by the police? For what crime?
We expect this outrageous behavior from the Liberals who are anxious to suppress reasoned discussion and criticism. We expect it from the Fake News Media, particularly the taxpayer-funded Liberal propaganda organization, the CBC. We expect it from the presstitutes in the dead tree press who hope to be fed some of the $600 million dollars that the Liberal syndicate plans to pay for their subservience.
But we don’t expect it from the Conservatives who are supposed to stand up for press freedom. “Accredited” reporters means those subservient to the political class; those that don’t ask difficult questions; those that are approved by the government. It’s all shades of a communist-style attitude to citizens that does not belong in a free society.
And where were the other reporters? Why weren’t they doing anything about it? It seems that Rebel Media is the only group worthy of the name of reporters these days.
Shape up Scheer! Maxime Bernier is looking better every day.
Every week, some new obscure feminoid pops up out of nowhere to bitch about men, particularly white men.
In an article originally in the Washington Post, quoted in the always interesting Unz Review, a certain Mary Rambaran-Olm, Woman of Color, addressed an academic conference of the International Society of Anglo Saxonists—an international academic group devoted to English Medieval Studies.
Naturally, the gripe was that:
“Anglo Saxon” is code for whiteness, a phrase that is co-opted today by white supremacists around the world to advance a false version of white-dominated history.
Despite being utter twaddle, any amount of lying about white men is acceptable in academic, or should I say pseudo-academic, circles. Apparently, now it’s the bespectacled professors of Medieval Studies, swapping their tweed jackets and pipes for Nazi brownshirts in the cloisters of academe.
What really annoys this Woman of Color is not the fact that English Medieval Studies necessarily involves the study of former white civilization and culture, but that all the modern world—science, music, literature, medicine—was created essentially by Men of White. From the Middle Ages emerged the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, the Reformation, the Industrial Revolution, aviation, the Space Age, the Atomic Age, computers and so on. Almost all the work of Men of White. Had not Western men explored the world and colonized Africa, Africa would still be in the Stone Age.
This is really what irks the second-rate pseudo-intellectuals. Now that their envy and spite are given free range in any venue, everyone is supposed to grovel before them. They can whine and moan about “white supremacy” but do they ever think about what that means? Do they ever think?
It was summed up very neatly by a commenter on the Unz Review (h/t Anon) who opined:
There are certain academics who, after a cluster of years in the field, begin to realize they’re never going to contribute very much, mainly because they’re intellectual lightweights. They’ve begun to notice that tenure and the good jobs at the more prestigious universities are going to their intellectual heavyweight colleagues. When they’re socializing with other professors, they notice that they sound stupid in comparison, and they can’t hold up their end in an intellectual argument with colleagues, and sometimes not even some of their students.
At this point, the lightweight, often a female minority, becomes frantic and desperate when she finally realizes she can’t keep pace with her more brilliant, mainly white male colleagues. The anguish is further compounded when she doesn’t land a white male husband, preferably high status, which is her escape plan if her academic career doesn’t work out. But quite often, the male she’s angling for has heard enough pseudo-intellectual blather from her that he’s disgusted by her stupidity and her underwater basket weaving-type papers in her field that he has read. He considers her an egotistical, screechy dud. Her failures cause her to start scheming like Lucretia Borgia. She delves into her female id and goes into full witch mode. She tries to backstab her colleagues and her entire intellectual field by screaming that everyone’s bigoted against her, and conjures up a media storm.
Quite often, these attempts occur after her employer has just given her a review of her work and failed to give her tenure. This is the academic world’s way of saying, “Eh, you’re really not that good. We made a mistake in hiring you, c’est la vie, now push off.”
Well, she could certainly get hired in the Bitching-About-Men Department at the University of Fatuous Drivel.
