Sarah Palin Is Back. Good News Or Bad News For Satirical Bloggers.

In a twist worthy of Game Of Thrones, Presidential hopeful Donald Trump yesterday married Cersei Baratheon (nee Lannister) recruited to his campaign the former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Some say it may boost support for Trump among likely Republican voters especially in the mid west where Protestantism is a powerful persuader, but in the long run could harm the Republicans chances of winning the presidency.

Hang on, I thought, she has only endorsed him, he hasn't named her as his running mate. Others are saying the move signals the end of the Tea Party, although that too is crazy because this Tea Party never existed.

For myself, while I acknowledge that Mrs Palin's politics are whacko as ever and she has put on quite a lot of weight thus not looking as good as she did, if the lady who can see Russia from her house takes an active role in the campaign she can only add to the fun. I did warm to Mrs Palin somewhat in 2008 after having built an absurdist blog post around her during the campaign, in which I had her taking the newly elected John McCain to Alaska for a weekend break and losing him under the ice on a fishing trip after, Mister Magoo like, he blundered into an ice hole.

For presenting the bumbling vice pres candidate as a scheming soap virago on the lines of Joan Collins in Dynasty, I was subjected to a hate attack from 'Liberals'.

"You shouldn't be presenting her as funny and interesting, you should be telling the world what an evil person she is," they screeched. Well anyone who was hated so much by such contemptible people couldn't be all bad, I thought. And then the same people tried to tell me that Michelle Obama was one of the most beautiful women in the world. Since then I have not been able to take any Obama supporter seriously.

And then the opposition was Obama, the man from nowhere who has no past. Things I discovered bout him on the dark web (I had a UNIX machine in my office - not a company asset but my own, I was always self employed - made me sure he would be an incompetent president, a neo - con puppet and a war monger) told me forget the lookalike, the real Mr Magoo would be a better president. The Liberals, contrary to the famous dream of one of their heroes, had made the mistake of judging a candidate by the colour of his skin rather than the quality of his character.

Not that Obama had much character to judge he was a vacuum and apart from rumours which would have finished a white candidate, there was nothing. One of his main backers however, a Bilderberger, neo - Nazi German billionaire who specialisis in building tax evasion vehicles for corporate clients, should have worried everybody.

So as a UK blogger who has no vote in the US election, Sarah Palin became my favorite (although when some controversy about a pipeline became an issue I did have fun speculating that if Obama / Biden won it would be build from a bourbon distillery direct to the Vice President's Office.

So this blog says GO Sarah, we need a few laughs from the campaign.

Mass Shooting at University in Pakistan Kills More Than Thirty

According to the news wires this morning, a team of "Taliban" gunmen stormed a college campus at at Bacha Khan University in the town of Charsada in northwest Pakistan, at around 9.30am local time and began firing randomly at students and teachers in a terror attack that is wholly out of character with how The Taliban operate.

UK newspaper The Guardian reported that the terrorists, four young men from the Pakistani militant group Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) entered the campus at about 9.30am local time (4.30am GMT), apparently using the cover of thick morning fog, and opened fire on students and teachers in classrooms and accommodation blocks. A gun battle between the attackers and Pakistan security forces ensued.

Eye witness reports said there four gunmen wearing suicide bomb vests and weilding AK47 automatic rifles invaded the campus. The attack was claimed by Tehreek-e-Taliban, a Pakistani militant group.

"They came from behind and there was a big commotion," an unnamed male student told a local news channel from a hospital bed in Charsadda’s District Hospital. "We were told by teachers to leave immediately. Some people hid in bathrooms."

Television images showed military vehicles taking armed soldiers into the campus as helicopters hovered overhead and ambulances lined up outside the main gate.

Shabir Khan, a lecturer in English said he was about to leave his university housing for the department when firing began. "Most of the students and staff were in classes when the firing began,” Khan said. “I have no idea about what’s going on but I heard one security official talking on the phone to someone and said many people had been killed and injured."

About three hours after the attack began, the Pakistani army said the attackers were contained in two university blocks and that four of them had been killed. Witnesses report a much higher death toll than that given officially. A 23-year-old student said he counted 56 bodies and saw gunmen shooting male and female students "without discrimination". Students at the university are overwhelmingly Muslim and it is bizarre to think Islamic extremists would attack followers of Islam in this way.

About three hours after the attack started, the army said the campus was quiet as soldiers conducted a block-by-block search. Four attackers were killed, including two who were shot dead by snipers, it said.

Although a similar narrative was presented by US news network CNN, their report stated a TTP spokesman later denied responsibility for the attack:

"The TTP “strongly condemn the attack on Bacha Khan University in Charsadda and disown the attack, saying this is not according to Shariah," according to a statement emailed by TTP Central Spokesman, Mohammad Khurrassani.

CNN then reported a senior Taliban commander, Umar Mansoor, earlier claimed responsibility for today’s attack on the university.

NOTE: This apparent switch looks very similar to the Cointel Pro method of grey propaganda designed to reinforce to the public that the TTP carried out this attack – a major application of grey propaganda is making enemies believe falsehoods using straw arguments: As phase one, to make someone believe “A”, one releases as grey propaganda “B”, the opposite of “A”. In phase two, “B” is discredited using some strawman. The enemy will then assume “A” to be true.

Facebook begins Europe-wide censorship campaign against free speech.

by Egbert Nobakon

Facebook Inc (FB.O) has commenced the Europe-wide censoring of posts and comments the ruling elite do not like, thus making good the promise given to Hausfrau - Volksfuhrer Merkel by the social media and data theft site's founder Mark Zuckerberg. The campaign began on Monday 18 January to prevent 'extremist' posts on social media, after German extremist anti - European politicians raised concerns about a rise in public opposition to a policy of uncontrolled mass imigration their critics claim is aimed at destroying German ethnicity and culture and turning Germany into an Islamic theocracy.

The left wing coalition politicians have also suffered a public backlash over their efforts to conceal the truth about the increased level of rape and sex crimes committed by Muslim immigrants against European women and directly linked to the influx of refugees from uncivilised parts of the middle east and Africa where women are still though of as chattels.

Facebook launched its pretentiously and dishonestly named “Initiative for Civil Courage Online” in Berlin, pledging over 1 million euros (1 million pounds) to support non-governmental organisations in their efforts to promote pro - Islamic, anti - European propaganda and any posts defending free speech opposing the politically correct cowardice of the ruling elite and corporate fascists like Zuckerberg and his Thought Police organisation.

Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said hate speech “has no place in our society”, including in the Internet. In Facebook's wrapped world view something like "I think there should be some limit on the number of migrants we let in," or "It is known there are many jihadists trying to enter western nations to do harm, so making sure new arrivals have proper travel documents and entry visas". Far from being hate speeech, such comments are aimed at preventing those who carry hate in their sould from harming innocent people in civilised society.

Facebook’s ground rules forbid bullying harassment and threatening language, except by Zuckerberg and his fascist staff, but critics say it does not enforce them properly. The critics are wrong here. The nerd Zuckerberg is so completely out of touch with reality he believes computer intelligence is equal to human intelligence, so any subtly worded post that avoids the 'racist' or 'xenophobic' words defined by Facebook's sad little script kiddies is going to get past the software apps they employ as censors.

In November, prosecutors in Hamburg launched an investigation into Facebook on suspicion of not doing enough to prevent the dissemination of hate speech. German politicians and celebrities opposed to democracy and free speech have expressed concern about the rise of 'anti-foreigner' comments on Facebook (like, "a bunch of foreign guys shouting Allahu Akbar raped and sexually assaulted women on News Years Night in Cologne, which Hausfrau - Volksfuhrer Merkel thinks people should not be allowed to write even though it is true. Merkel's neo Nazi government are also going after other social media sites where they fear Germans may learn the truth about what is going on in their country in order to cover up the government's failure to cope with a tide of new migrants that amounted to 1.1 million last year alone.

Chancellor Angela Merkel has urged social networks and Internet service providers to do more to identify criminal posts (i.e. those which question or criticize government policy, more quickly and taking them down.

Here's an example of the kind of criminal posts Merkel, Obama and Zuckerberg would criminalise. You will see it is not racist, xenophibic or offensive in any way other than in the way it exposes a lie told by Barack Obama.


The rejoinder in question appeared on my own Facebook page in a thread about my recent Pando article. That piece looked at President Obama’s blatant lie about his power to reschedule marijuana under federal law. I was responding to an Obama apologist who mindlessly repeated the lie, and insisted that “you know damned well the Republicans would accuse him of being an Imperial President” if he does anything on any issue.

This agitprop is standard -- and infuriatingly mindless -- apologism from die-hard Democratic Party loyalists. To them, every instance of overt hypocrisy or dishonesty from their preferred politician is justified because the GOP inevitably will criticize him. Of course, the GOP will criticize Obama no matter what he does, which means that this tautology is designed not to make a factual point, but instead to rationalize anything and everything the White House does regardless of the facts.

It means, in other words, that yes, those who use this self-serving crap to deliberately distract from inconvenient truths are being willfully stupid and are, hence, willful ignoramuses.

So there you have it, under The New World Order we are no longer allowed to question our leaders or their governments. And that suppression of free speech is one of the basic tools of fascist regimes from Ancient Rome to modern Germany and Obama's USA.

Is it possible to eradicate all diseases?
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife have dreamed up this great money making scheme. They have announced they will try to eradicate all diseases by the end of the century. It follows down the same path of greed and self interest previously trodden by Bill and Melinda Gates and their Gates Foundation which has been so sucessful in its efforts to eradicate disease and poverty that it now gets $2 from governments and the United Nations for every $1 it spends ...

Shock, Horror! Millennials Safe Space Violated As Facebook Algo Accident Exposes Them To Diverse Ideas
Late last month (August 2016,) the Zuckerbugger's zoons put an algorithm in charge of the Facebook “trending” feature, to select the most popular topics, articles and keywords on the web in a narrow timeframe and with due respect for the 'safe space' of millenials who can be traumatised if they encounter microaggrrrrressions in the form of controversial ideas or unorthodox opinions ...

One of the most interesting announcements in last week's Budget – well, for me at least, as someone who has no savings and doesn’t play bingo or drink much – was the new Alan Turing Institute: £220 million of government support will be invested into "big data and algorithm" research.
