The Centre Cannot Hold

“Things fall apart; the center cannot hold.” W. B. Yeats wrote.

The funny thing is, we didn’t seem to miss the center all that much after it was gone. The people of the developed world are perfectly happy gathering at the extremes these days, especially the margins of thinking, as the gap between them widens, deepens and becomes an abyss

One of the things that held the centre together was tolerance, in public debate, argument and private opinion, tolerance of dissent, of diversity - even eccentricity in lifestyle. Tolerance and a little good will on both sides facilitated the coherent exchange of ideas. These days, the main political factions are typified by hatred of those who disagree with their world view. Their primitive chanting of slogans hardly adds up to an exchange of ideas, in fact when compared to the decorous disagreements on politics, religion and economics in the past, modern exchanges of views are more like two tribes of chimps screaming, baring teeth and throwing turds at each other over a scrap of desirable territory.

Behind the partisanship bordering on tribalism, that divides left and right is that eminence grise we are obliged, for want of an official appellation, to refer to as 'The Deep State,''The Shadow Government' or 'The New World Order,' and their front line actors, the quaintly misnamed "Intelligence Community." These birds, many of them lifers, are dedicated to making the public discussion of anything as incoherent as possible so as to prevent any change in policy that might curtail the growth of the Deep State, a version of John Steinbeck's monster that had to grow or else it died. Unlike the Steinbeck monster (the banks) that fed on money and debt, the deep state / shadow government / NWO feeds of power and control.

In order to gain ever more power and control the Deep State monster must keep those it would rule in the dark about what is really going on, to make sure those who are not afraid to question and challenge authority do not have the weapons, the information and the platform from which to address their audience, with which to challenge convincingly. This is why we read and hear so much about fake news and censoring internet content to remove fake news. Internet technology makes suppression of news unfavourable to The Powers That Be a simple affair, while the concentration of mass media in the hands of a few corporations facilitates building a narrative designed to limit our ability to question and form diverse opinions on the official versions of events.

Case in point, the Syrian aerial gas attack earlier this year in the town of Khan Sheikhoun. Elected officials were all over the cable networks selling the NSA’s story that Syrian president Bashar Assad bombed women and children with Sarin gas three days after State Department declared that it had a new policy of letting the Alawite (secular Muslim) regime of Bashar al Assad remain in power after decades of manoeuvring to remove him culminating in in the despicable deception by the NATO power of appearing to oppose the terrorists and Muslim fundamentalists fighting Assad while secretly arming and training them.

The gas attack and the outrage expressed in the media might have led to the end of the six-year-long Syrian civil war, which Assad seemed to be winning, finally — with Russian assistance.

The alleged incident led to new official calls for NATO to directly attack Syria and kick Assad out, presumably to be replaced by the kind of failed state chaos that has existed in Libya since Qaddafi was overthrown by a NATO bombing campaign. Nobody knows. The US Deep State thrives when chaos reigns in foreign lands. So much the better for their looting operations, such as the theft of Libya’s 141 ton gold reserves in 2011. And if not looting hard assets directly, the Deep State wins when its many black box vendors — the private security armies, materials suppliers, arms sellers — are raking in.

The interesting part of the Syrian gas bombing story is how readily the U.S. and European public swallowed it. The elected representatives of the people flocked to broadcast and print news organs to condemn the outrage and demand to know how the west could let a monster who would use chemical weapons on his own people to remain in power. the FUKUS axix (France, U.k., U.S.A., Intelligence Community "issued a consensus report" reporting the Syrian air force has dropped Sarin gas bombs on the hapless civilians. Nobody offered any actual evidence that this was so. Only those who already understood or took the trouble to learn of the properties of Sarin recognised that the photos of aid workers clad in T shirts, jean and open toed sandals, and handling affected civilians with bare hands just had to be fake. Anybody working in an area where Sarin is present would be wearing a full haz - mat suite, with a respirator and full body cover. These days however, mere assertions rule and the media were all singing off the same song sheet in the wake of the attack and the song they sang most enthusiatically was that tired old anthem, "Conspiracy Theory". It was left to veteran investigative journalist Seymour Hersh to expose the gaping holes in the logic of the narrative some weeks later.

To save yourselves the trouble of reading Hersh's article just ask one question. With support from Russia and Iran, Assad was on the point of victory, ISIS were in retreat in both Syria and Iraq and the people of Syria, who had by a considerable majority supported their government throughout the extremist uprising, were still loyal. Assad may be many things but he is not stupid so why would he order such an atrocity that he must have known would turn the world against him? As with the Ukraine colour revolution that deposed a democratically elected government, the removal of Honsi Mubarak in Egypt and the overthrow of Qaddafi (sic) the intent was so obviously to benefit American geopolitical interests and the execution so inept and amateurish, like most other Washington fireign policy adventures these had the CIA's fingerprints all over them.

We are still waiting to see some evidence that Trump’s campaign “colluded with Russia” to spin the election toward him and rob Hillary clinton of her entitlement to be first woman president of the U.S.. Those claims were also put out as "a consensus analysis" by the Intelligence Community. And after months of calls by the democratic Party and their friends and allies in the media in March 2017, just-retired NSA director James Clapper told NBC’s Meet the Press that his agency had no evidence of “Russian collusion” with the Trump forces. Four months later the calls to impeach Trump and have him removed from office continue but still no evidence of his collaboration with Moscow or of any interference by Russian hackers been presented. What has emerged is that the number one suspect for leaking thousands of emails harmful to Clinton and the Democrats to Wikileaks, a young Democrat campaign worker named Seth Rich, was murdered in Washington soon after the most damaging information in the emails began to be published.

Casual observers might be wise to adopt the most cynical attitude possible about "consensus reports" published by the U.S. Government's numerous intelligence agencies both overt and covert. Seasoned dissenters such as I gave up affording them any credibility decades ago. Britain and the other European powers are no better, and Russia? Well RT is not a bad news site for cynics in the west, itself.but don't consider it as a source for news on Russia itself. What it all adds up to is the snowballing incompetence, self - interest, malfeasance, and total dysfunction of the US government in general, in all its layers and branches has rendered the national government dysfunctional and unable to govern effectively.

This breakdown of order and the insecurity it generates is what is now driving the anger at the extremes. And with no centre to hold things together the outcome coulkd be catastrophic. The only way out is if We The People reject mainstream politics, mainstream media and the ideologies of the extremes. We are many, they are few, and more importantly than that, THEY CAN'T PUT US ALL IN PRISON.


US Presidents Of The Past warned Against Secret, Shadow Government.
By now it should be obvious that peacemake, joybringer and putative aquatic pedestrian Barack Hussein Obama was never really in charge of the US Government. Whatever Obama said would happen, all the American government's policies ensured the opposit would happen. The embedded article thows some light on how the US government really works

Child Abuse Cover Up In Sheffield Biggest So Far?

Sheffield and Rotherham sit next to each other in the old steel making area of South Yorkshire. Rotherham has already given us a major scandal when the cover up by police and local coucil officials of massive organised abuse of young girls in the local authority case ststem, and the pressures that were put of people who tried to demand a proper investigation of these crimes by politically correct Labour politicians and party managers was revealed

UK General Election, 2015: David Cameron Hugged A Hoodie but Nobody Wants To Hug A Tory.

So far, no matter what the political leaders do, the public are not responding to electioneering. The biggest losers from this disengagement with establishment politics are likely to be David Cameron's Conservatives who ned a five point lead over Labour to be un with a chance. So are the polls being distorted by the UKIP effect or is something more significant going on?

Death Of Democracy: Why We Can’t Get The Government We Deserve And Vote For.

In every election campaign, in the UK, USA, Canada, Germany, France etc. politicians spout about delivering 'change'. And yet every government we elect, no matter what label they wear or what coulour the use on campaign materials, seems just the same as the last, making the same promises and mistakes. Ever wondered why?

Why Do The 'Progressive Left' Support Those Who Use Rape As A Weapon Of War

Rape as a weapon of war and genocide is not a pleasant subject but it is one that needs to be raise, like the issue of Female Genital Mutilation. Why visit such unpleasant topics? To expose the hypocrisy of the modern political left who have more in common with Hitler's Nazis, Mussolini's Fascist or Stalin's brutal Soviet regime that the supporters of traditional left wing values of individual freedom, free speech and equality before the law.

European Commission puts business profits before the needs of the world’s poorest.

While the left try to win elections by creaming 'racist' and 'bigot' at anyone who disagrees with their pro - EU, pro - globalisation, immigrant - loving, gay - loving, paedophile loving authoritarian agenda, thus pissing off the social class who make up the Labour Party's core vote, the thinkers amongs us are seeing the European Federalisation, Agenda 21, Global Government project for what it ius ... Adolf Hitler's dream come to fruition

Privatization of Water as an Owned Commodity Rather Than a Universal Human Right

Corporate powers and the United Nations are planning on privatising water resources including rainfall, yes you did read that right, privatising the rain. The CEO of food processing bastards Nestlé spoke of the plan last year when he said companies like his had a right to make money from sellling OUR water, now those Stalinisdt shits at the United Nations and The World Bank are planning to steal the stuff life depends on.

Giant Whitewash Slick Sighted In Indian Ocean

The Malaysian Airlines missing Boeing 777 mystery is over, the mouthpieces of the New World Orderr declare. Though no wreckage has been found and technological data points to a very different conclusion, the powers that be have decided we must all accept the boeing 777 few way beyond its range, into a remote area of the Indian Ocean well over a thousand miles from land where the pilot ditched it. and we can all stop asking dofficult question or else - see!

Representative government Is Being Replaced By A Global Technocracy

When Peter Mandelson, the architect of the New Labour project that gave Britain it's most authoritarian government in three hundred years and sold out national sovereignty to supranational bureaucracies, says that representative democracy is dying, he does not sound as if he will be one of the chief mourners. What can we do to rescue our democratic freedoms from smooth faced technocrats like Mandelson?

MK Ultra, Mind Control And The Micromanagement Of Society.

To be able to control the minds of the population has been a goal of governments from Nazi Germant and Stalinist Russia to leaders of the irnically described 'free world' today. Here is information on one of the social engineering programs governments are using, MK Ultra.

Globalisation And The Destruction Of Civilisation
Despite repeated assertions that this blog does not align itself with either of those anachronistic labels, left and right, our oppositions to globalisation (an attack on benefits the early trade union movement fought for,) and our support for controlled borders and strict vetting of immigrants we are often accused by those who like to label themselves 'left' (because it sounds cuddlier) ...

Can Americans Overthrow The Evil That Rules Them?

The anti - establishment, anti - globalisation mood that manifested itself in the Brexit vote is sweeping across Europe, the cosy government - corporate cartel is desperately trying to control the narrative, but against the combined strength of millions of new media commentators all challenging the official; narrative, the dark forces of globalism are on the back foot.

The Oligarchy Is Tottering - Trump Tramples The Neocons' "False Song Of Globalism"

Donald Trump scares the global establishment as do the anti Federalisation parties in the EU. We take a long and detailed look at why, and exactly what the globalist agenda would have meant for freedom and democracy had people not wonken up and opposed it in vast numbers. Kudos to the Islamic Jihad too, medievalist religious nuts they may be, but they resisted American attempt to impose western consumer culture on them.

As this blog predicted President Erdogan of Turkey is blaming the Kurds and President Assad of Syria for yesterday's bomb blast in the Turkish capital which killed and injured many people.It was predictable would the attack would be blamed on Assad and the Kurds, thus giving the nutter Erdogan an excuse to intensify his actions against Assad and the Kurds

If You Look At How Fast Global Trade Is Unravelling, You'll Get Dizzy

Governments constantly make positive noises about the health of their economies although most people who are in work have felt no improvement on the position they were in after the crash of 2008. Wagest are stangnant, employment has reduced somewhat (see below) and while the banks are printing money and the super rich are widening the gap between themselves and ordinary people faster than ever, the real situation is frightening.
