Three Years – Back In The Family

Welcome home, people of Crimea, just three years ago today. Once again part of one of the great and historic and peaceful nations of Earth.

I salute you …and secretly wish that I could be as proud of my own nation as you have the justifiable right to be of yours.

Oh, and a happy birthday to me.  Can’t think of a better way to celebrate.

Video: War on Syria: Manufactured Revolution and Fake Media Narrative

It’s really a moot point now, because while the battles for Syria to retake the areas of their country that were stolen from them over the past six years still roll on, the 24 hour media cycle has long since also moved along and nobody, at least in the West, is still thinking about what occurred in Aleppo (if they ever did think about it) during the past years and earlier this year. But I want to do my part in ensuring that the truth of the matter is historically recorded, not lost behind the false image that has been predominantly foisted on a public more concerned about ‘celebrity’ antics than what is going on that actually matters or should be held to be important, in the world around them …and so I am reblogging, for the record, this fine piece of documentation on those events in Syria by independent journalist Eva Bartlett.

It is kind of heart-breaking that such action should be necessary but in a world where deception and obfuscation of the truth seems to be acceptable and even ‘normal’, even at official national levels, what else can we do to combat the laying down of false claims of historic events?

I congratulate and offer gratitude to brave people like Eva Bartlett and others (Vanessa Beeley https://thewallwillfall.org, Sarah Abed https://sarahabed.com/) for the great work that they do as truth-tellers. Why is it that it is mostly brave women appear to take the front ranks to lead this ongoing battle for truth?

Canadian independent journalist Eva Bartlett is the object of a smear campaign by Canada’s mainstream media. Listen to what she has to say and then decide who is telling the truth.

The mainstream media denies the existence of terrorists linked to Al Qaeda.

According to mainstream sources, there were no terrorists in Aleppo.

Al Qaeda and the Islamic State are supported by US-NATO, Saudi Arabia and Israel. They are the state-sponsors of terrorism. We are dealing with a war of aggression. Eva Bartlett provides detailed evidence of  war crimes.

The following video interview by Global Research TV was conducted in Montreal in January in the context of Eva Bartlett’s Canada speaking tour.

It is followed by her presentation at the Montreal venue. (M.Ch, GR Editor)

Combating Cognitive Dissonance

Some wise words from The Rabbit Hole on cognitive dissonance – perhaps the major affliction ailing the western world in the modern age.

The Rabbit Hole

December 31st, 2016

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true. The other is to refuse to accept what is true. Soren Kierkegaard

I realized tonight that it’s much more frustrating to argue politics with people in person than it is on social media. Especially with close friends who are only familiar with the NATO/US narrative, by choice. Knowing we have opposing views I didn’t initiate the politics talk.

I was told, “you’re intelligent, how could you support a dictator”? I said because I’m intelligent I don’t believe the lies and propaganda spewed on mainstream media, and dig beneath the surface. “But he’s killing his people, he’s using chemical weapons”.. So I proceeded to explain how that’s false and even shared a recent post of mine that said that the Syrian state provided evidence that the opposition were the ones who used mustard gas…

Not “Living The Lie”

I was inspired today by a shared post on Facebook, recommending the video you will find below.  Inspired enough to reshare it and also to make this declaration.  I hope that any and all readers may find this useful.

•♦•♦•♦•♦•♦•♦•

A Declaration of Personal Independence and Integrity

I am human.
I am an individual.
For as long as I can, and for as long as it is within my power and capability to do so…
– I will be myself.
– I will make my own decisions.
– I will decide what is right and what is wrong.
– I will decide what is truth and what is false.
– I will not conform to some pattern that the society I live in would set for me.
– I will not stand silent while evil is carried out by others in my name.
– I will speak up for justice where injustice is done.
– I will call out those who are perpetrating harm, lies, mischief and anything that is not good in the world. No matter who they are.
– I will maintain my integrity by speaking the truth as I see it.
– I will maintain my personal independence.
– I will be a person, not a sheeple.
– I will be alert.
– I will be strong.
– I will be free.

…and that is what this video is all about. Try it. You may begin to see the world – your world – your self, a little differently.

Hearsay Extrapolated – Amnesty Claims Mass Hangings In Saydnaya, Syria, Provides Zero Proof

Sarah Abed, a Syrian American, with relations living in Saydnaya, Syria, reveals the fake-newsiness (colloquialism for ‘outright lies’) of Amnesty International reports of mass hangings by the Syrian government.

How low is the West willing to sink in its already scraping of the bottom of the barrel in credibility and trust?

Of course it is mainly the US and NATO that are behind such lies, but isn’t it incumbent on their allies and member nations to periodically review their association with such degenerates?

Come on Western nations, grow a backbone.

The Weaponisation Of Popular Culture

I recently published a post that was basically just a share of a YouTube video from Paul Joseph Watson on the Trump immigrant ban.  I almost took that post down once or twice, not for the occasional profanity (if you can’t get past a few swear words then you need to get out more), but a) because I didn’t agree with some of what was said (or at least how it came across to me – my understanding of it) and b) because I just didn’t understand what he was saying (which may just be due to my removing myself from the presence and influence of modern cultural norms as much as possible).

I didn’t remove the post, obviously, since it served (more or less) to make a point.  Or points.  Even if I didn’t agree with or understand some of the points made.  It generally gave the impression that I wanted to pass on.

I could say much the same thing about this share,  Which is actually of much greater importance than almost anything related to Trump:

 

Western culture is sinking into depravity and degradation and has been for the last few decades but more noticeably during this century.  It is a one-way trip, and the further it goes and the faster it travels, the harder it will be to jump off and personally regain some sense of reality and purpose.  I can’t say what the end will be like but it won’t be pretty or pleasant.

I personally jumped ship several years ago, which is probably why I have little understanding of the finer points of modern popular culture.  It is though, very clear from the outside, just what is happening to society headed for self-absorbed destruction.

Voting for Hillary Clinton was never an option

Thank you for penning this ‘crime sheet’ on Mrs Clinton, Sarah. I have been meaning to do something like that myself, but now that she has slipped into relative obscurity (hopefully for ever) I would never have gotten around to it. Re-blogged on my own site.

Incidentally, I think you are doing a good thing here, down the ‘Rabbit Hole’.

The Rabbit Hole

Prior to this past election day, I wrote quite frequently on my social media accounts about Hillary Clinton’s political career. With a special focus on the corruption that was being buried in main stream media. With her defeat came an uprising on my social media accounts from those that had supporter her not being able to accept the election results. I had never seen my Facebook feed so divided and I was surprised by the number of Pro-Resistence/ Pro-Pali/Pro-Syria/Pro-Yemen/Pro-Libya/Pro-Iraq friends that had expressed dissatisfaction that she did not win. I wasn’t aware that any of my friends supported Clinton till the day after she lost! If my inability to empathize with them during their mourning of her  campaign loss is seen as being insensitive then so be it. I’ve clearly proved that I’m anti-Clinton for factual reasons, one of which being that she is a bloody war propagator. The ones…

Is this the future?

I don’t need to say much here other than that the following reblog is absolutely the case, well put, on the renewable energy lie.  The so-called ‘renewables’ are N-O-T not, the future of energy.  There is no future of energy – of the kind, and level, that we have become reliant on for our daily existence.

Renewable energy is, at best, a temporary, partial, stop-gap between a fossil-fuel driven society and a post-fossil-fuel society, which may give us a 25 year (max) step-down period to adjust to that idea.

At worst, renewable energy is a total folly, which may ensure that we have no future for our daily existence.

Foodnstuff

Idyllic scene, you might think?

Well, of course some people don’t like them and some people do, for various reasons, which I won’t go into here.

The reason for this post is to show that massive structures like this can never be part of our long-term energy future.

Here’s the base of one of those towers being put into place :

All that rebar and all that cement…..made with the energy from fossil fuels.

Next comes the tower, fabricated elsewhere, using, you guessed it, energy from fossil fuels. Oh, and that big semi-trailer thingy runs on diesel :

Whacking big crane to lift the tower into place. Fossil fuels made that, too :

Up goes the tower. What’s driving that crane? Oh, of course, fossil fuels :

There are more images where these came from, and a comprehensive analysis of how much energy it takes to put one wind…
