Eurovision

Visible to anyone in the world

It was a surprise to no one that Ukraine won the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday night except maybe Sam Ryder who might have thought he was about to actually win. Hard luck Sam and deepest commiserations, I feel for you!

I don’t believe for a minute Ukraine won, there were many better songs in the contest but to paraphrase Not the 9 O’Clock News, ‘nice propaganda shame about the song’. But in these days of X-Factor style manipulation, CGI, media bias and outright lies who knows what to believe anymore.

And why all the concern for Ukraine? There’s been a war raging in Yemen for years and not a word about it, or anyone from the celebrity circus of the dire and meaningless showing up to support the downtrodden over there. But then it all depends on where the interests of the military/industrial complex lie doesn’t it, and who they own?

Formula 1 cancelled Sochi this year but were happy enough to go to Saudi Arabia, that bastion of freedom and social justice, and Australia, who were only outdone in lockdown tyranny by China. And, again, the silence was deafening from the world of entertainment. Who would have thought that Right Said Fred would have been the most vocal advocates for freedom and at the forefront of the anti-lockdown/mask/forced jab tyranny of the last 2 years? Not a word from Bono, Geldof, Sting, Paul Weller or Bruce Springsteen, all those fake grandstanders for freedom and justice, what a bunch of hypocrites and champagne socialists!

Surely cringiest moment of the year has to be Bono singing ‘Stand by Ukraine’ to the tune of Stand By Me, and in one foul moment desecrating not only one of the great classics of the Motown era but my love for it as well. I’ll never be able to listen to it again without seeing that self-righteous prick squawking along – some things are unforgivable, these people have no shame! Isn’t it strange too that all these celebrities can just pop over for a visit to a deadly war zone and not even a helmet or flak jacket needed for protection?? Hmmm…never a sniper around when you need one!

The sad thing about all this manipulation is that the genuinely talented and deserving get nowhere. Imagine if you were one of the other contestants on Saturday night; you put in all that effort, you possibly wrote the song, like Sam, learned it, practiced it and put yourself forward for selection, worked for months in preparation and, then, propaganda wars takes over and all your effort is rendered meaningless.

The same thing is happening in women’s sport. All those years of training and then some bloke with an overdose of oestrogen and a fake pair of tits comes in and takes it all away. Women’s sport is going to be wiped out because biological women cannot compete against biological male athletes. The physical differences that happen in puberty are irreversible and it is not possible to make a male a female regardless of how many hormones/suppressants they take or what they identify as. See link below.

All this so-called ‘social justice’ has a down side and it started with the ‘everyone’ gets a medal’ that killed off the school sports day. Jordan Peterson, in one of his lectures, talks about killing the spirit of a child and that the quickest way to do it is to put down their behaviour/effort when they are doing well. Isn’t that just what is happening here? Imagine the disappointment the child who was good at sports and who actually won the race must have felt. So what if poor little Johnny cried because he lost! Life is not always about winning and the sooner he learns to cope with loss and failure the better his life will be, a bit of adversity can build character.

Gone are the days when your abilities, skills and talents mattered as you strived for excellence in something. These things don’t matter in the world of social justice, the only thing that matters now is the content of your underwear, or your sexual preferences, or how many boxes you can tick for the neo-liberal fascist brigade. As noted in Jen Psaki’s replacement in the Biden administration:

Female – check,

Black – check,

Immigrant – check…the job’s yours. You’re not gay too are you, or feel a bit manly?

No,

Ok, pity though, we could have checked another box or two!

The other downside to this is that when you put people in positions based on a social justice box tick and not on actual merit then, inevitably, there will be failure. Just look at the political leadership across the globe. How many of them are there because of their talents? You don’t have to delve too far into their history to see that they are all hand-picked for who they are and not what they can do. Justin Trudeau is where he is because of his father, a former Premier of Canada. Emmanuel Macron worked for the Rothschild’s before launching, or being launched, into politics. Jacinda Ardern graduated along with the likes of Tony Blair from the WEF’s young global leadership programme. See link below, you’ll note a few familiar names there.

But in all the shouting for ‘social justice’ I haven’t heard a mention of nepotism or connection to the upper classes and moneyed rich. British politics and all those top civil service jobs are all filled with graduates from Oxbridge who came up through the public school system. The ‘Old Boys Network’ is still going strong and not a word about the advantages mummy and daddy’s money and connections bought for their offspring. Nor has there been much about how the rich own and control everything already, or when the rules these governments enforced on the rest of us over covid, did not apply to them because when you have a private jet you can go anywhere, at any time, without restriction, or party at your leisure like Boris and the rest of them.

When ‘everyone gets a medal’ it undermines those who excel and kills off their reason for trying, why bother training, studying, acquiring a skill when someone with no training, no effort and no skills can walk in and take away all that you have worked hard for.

The 1960’s were a golden age in Britain, social mobility was at its highest, Britain led the world in industry, music and art, and it held the promise of a more equitable future. The working classes were better off than ever and had a strong voice that was finally being heard. It was the generations who remember those times that voted for Brexit because they saw how much their country had declined since joining the Common Market/EU and finally had the chance to stop the rot.

The Eurovison song contest which also began back in the 1960’s was one of those shows that the whole family used to gather around the TV to watch and see if you could pick the winner, like the Miss World Contest, before the feminist rabble intervened and killed it off. It was fun, a bit of harmless entertainment that everyone could enjoy. God forbid you try to have some fun now when cancel culture rules and the self-righteous and humourless are in charge!

Most of the social justice warriors/neo-liberal fascists are not even aware that they are just pawns in a rich man’s game, designed to keep us down and fighting amongst ourselves while they, quite literally, get away with murder. The stresses of the last two years have left us all fatigued and stressed, the world has been turned upside down and the lunatics are still in charge. It feels overwhelming.

And yet it is in the world of art and entertainment that I see hope. Artistic types have to be able to create and seldom fit into a one size fits all, homogenous, characterless world where you are not allowed to have fun, disagree and ‘MUST FOLLOW ZE RULES AT ALL TIMES!!’

The Sex Pistols have re-released God Save the Queen, just in time for the Jubilee (links below and a few more for the fun of it!) It is good to see that the spirit of punk is still alive and well. Stick it to them Johnny! While It may appear that the ‘elites’ have it all going their way at present, they control politics, the media and the corporate world but no one gets to have it all their way, all the time, forever. Change will come, people are waking up and the pendulum will eventually swing back the other way. I just hope it will be sooner rather than later so that the ‘architect’s’ of the present mess can be held to account. But, in the meantime, just to try and speed things along, you can always introduce your children/grandchildren to the Sex Pistols and see if we can inspire a new generation to bring on the Anarchy! Altogether now! I am an anti-Christ, I am an anar-chist…

Best Actor

Visible to anyone in the world

And the Oscar for best actor in a leading role goes to Voldemort…sorry, Volodymr Valensky for his role as the President of Ukraine! And doesn’t he deserve it ladies and gentlemen, oops… sorry, people with penises and vagina’s, a big round of applause, please! What a career this guy has had, from playing the president, to being the president, can you believe it!! As you may or may not know, Mr Valensky first took on this role in 2015 when he played the president of Ukraine in the series Servant of the People. He was so good that he was given the job for real in 2019, helped in no small part by the CIA and the world shadow government, who  orchestrated a coup in 2014 and got rid of the democratically elected President of Ukraine, Victor Yanukovych. You can see the story of this in Oliver Stone’s production Ukraine on Fire (link below) but you better hurry because big tech are doing their best to censor it, along with the globalists who have even made their own propaganda version, Winter on Fire, just to try and confuse the masses.

His other less well known roles include Igor in Love in Vegas; Igor again, in No Love and the City; and Igor again, in Lyubov V Bolshom Gorode 2. Surprisingly, he also played Napoleon in Corporal vs Napoleon which probably gave him the experience he needed for his role as the President of Ukraine, the series and the reality. You couldn’t make it up!! But Bono did, so moved was he by Zelensky’s heroism that he wrote a poem in praise of him for St Patrick’s Day, comparing him to St Patrick driving the snakes out of Ireland. (Quick! Pass me the sick bag euugghh!) Personally, I think a few verses of Send in the Clowns would have been a more appropriate tribute and, of course, we won’t make any mention at all of Hunter Biden, pay offs, corruption, dodgy gas deals etc. etc…

Talking of the Oscars, I was surprised there even was an Oscar’s this year, I didn’t think they had made enough movies in the last year to provide enough choices for the Oscars. I thought Hollywood had abandoned all original thought and were just re-making a female/lgbtqiaomgwtfit+ version of every previously successful movie. Look out for the female version of 12 Angry Men, 12 Pre-menstrual Women and the inclusive version of 7 Brides for 7 Brothers, 7 Life Partners for 7 Life Partners (but life does not mean like, liiiffe, it means that for the time of their lives they wish to spend together until they decide to consciously uncouple because marriage is a construct of the white patriarchy!) Coming soon to a cinema near you!

And, finally, to the Oscars, where Chris Rock got bitch-slapped, by Will Smith, for trying to be Ricky Gervais. Well, they had to do something to get people to watch! Then Will won an Oscar and blubbered on about love, being a vessel for love and how he has been called by God to lead his people, to be a river for his people, yadda, yadda, ya… Is this a black people thing?  I mean, you know the way some white people get a bit of an ‘I’m the messiah’ complex when they become famous, think Bono, Sting, Bob Geldof, do black people, when they become successful, think they are going to be the next Dr King? Hmm…

William Shakespeare famously wrote, ‘All the worlds a stage and all the men and women merely players’ (although he wouldn’t get away with that line now! ‘All the people with penises and vaginas…’ just not the same, is it? ). Sadly, that is what the Bono’s, Will Smiths and Zelensky’s of the world forget, they are just actors/comedians/singers, like the Thunbergs, paid performers following someone else’s script. Whether they are blubbering at the Oscars or writing poems, they are not Gods, or messiahs, or even competent leaders, they are just little people with big egos and no moral conscience, dressing their hypocrisy up in self-righteous indignation, puppets parroting the latest line in propaganda for those who pull the strings, (try saying that after a few beers!). And when they start pontificating again remember the words of Shakespeare which never seemed more appropriate ‘it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing’.

Exaunt, stage right…

Snow

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Aideen Devine, Thursday, 24 Feb 2022, 14:56

Well, so much for the global warming! A good snowfall this morning made the drive to work rather treacherous and definitely added a few more grey hairs to my head. That winter sparkle has it's own unique beauty which you cannot help but admire, although it doesn't help the drive when I'm trying to watch the road and admire the scenery at the same time! But it only snows in winter so you have to enjoy it while you can or as the man says:

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

And from the beauty of nature to the ugliness of man. It begins in Ukraine and there are reports of Chinese aircraft over Taiwan. We stand with bated breath...

Never-ending Fear

Visible to anyone in the world

Life is full of endings, people come and go as we move through life, get married, have children, move house, change jobs and lives diverge into separate paths and futures.

We have a tendency to believe more in happy endings which probably stems from a life of watching movies and reading fiction, where everything works out in the end, everyone lives happily ever after, most of the time: the estranged child and parent make peace, the parted lovers finally get it together, the evil corporation is made to pay and the villain is brought to justice. If only life were so simple.

The last two years have seen the ending of a lot of things we took for granted, friendships that we thought would last forever have been broken beyond repair. Friends and acquaintances, who we once thought of as liberal and open-minded, turned into strangers/fascists overnight, parroting the propaganda pumped out by the media in their campaign of terror against the population that those who dared to disagree with the narrative should be ‘expelled from all society, rounded up into camps or forcibly jabbed’. All concerns about bodily autonomy, or human rights, forgotten, or pushed aside, and their conscience ignored, leaving behind a bitter aftertaste.

With the ending of restrictions for some and, hopefully, the end of this particular bout of insanity, we should take some time and reflect on our actions and behaviour. We should also review the information we were given, and by whom, and question as to why the ‘scientist’s’ got is so wrong, and why did the government continue to listen to them and enact policy on that basis. Why does government policy appear to be based on the latest media hysteria and not on logic or actual evidence? Computer models can only provide information from the data that has been inputted and if the data is flawed, then the results will be flawed too.

Sadly, the misery inflicted by covid is still not enough for the globalists who are now doing their utmost to start a war with Russia. (The lunatics are still running the asylum) This is something they have been trying to do for many years and have created the fake ‘threatened invasion’ of Ukraine along with the false flag attack on a nursery school. Although, no one mentions the invasion of Ukraine by western forces which remains largely ignored by the media,(or the fascism in Canada) as they gather on the border with Russia, or is it only an invasion when it is done by those not on the side of the corporate and banking cartels? Who exactly is threatening who? Is it also a coincidence that Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, have been involved in a lot of dirty dealings in Ukraine, the details of which, and contents of the latter’s laptop, again largely ignored by the mainstream media.

Fortunately, most people are not swallowing the lies which you can see from the comments on news articles. People are waking up and seeing through the propaganda and realise that much of what they were told and believed were lies constructed to further the interests of the global ‘elite’, as they like to think of themselves. The question is, can we stop this? We have the mainstream media pumping out the hype as they did with covid and everything now comes with a large dose of hysterical over-reaction. We can’t even have a bit of winter weather without warnings of ‘threat to life!’  But the biggest threat to life and a bit of peace, is the government, their corporate and banking masters and the hysterical media. Just look at this news article - How would a nuclear war between the US and Russia play out? (msn.com)  – it is complete insanity.

Thankfully, most people are ignoring the hype and aren’t really taking it seriously and who can blame them. We are all tired after covid, and I, for one, am sick of the constant fearmongering. Why can we not be left to live our too short lives in peace? Most people do not want 10 houses or billions in the bank, no one needs billions but think how much good those billions could do if they were put to good use and managed differently or used to really improve our lives. What most of us want is to be left in peace, to get a fair days pay for a fair days work, to be able to enjoy time with our families and friends, have the odd holiday and follow our leisure interests or hobbies without this never ending harassment. It really isn’t a lot to ask but still we cannot be left in peace. When and where will this nonsense end?

Good News/ Bad News

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Aideen Devine, Saturday, 14 Dec 2019, 10:12

It's been a good news/bad news sort of a week. Good news, in that Boris won the election with a sizeable majority so now we can finally get on with Brexit and leaving the EU. I never thought I would be glad to see a Tory Government elected but like many working class, Boris was the only choice to finally settle the debate and I would like to say a huge thank you to the people of England who turned out to vote and make it happen. I feel, for the first time in a very long time, hopeful and optimistic about the future of the country and I think the UK will thrive from here on and that we have a lot to look forward to.

The sheep here turned out to vote for the tribes, as usual. However, there were a few upsets. Sinn Fein lost Foyle to the SDLP and the DUP's, Nigel Dodd’s lost his seat too.  Unfortunately, it was to Sinn Fein so that was a bit of a double-edged sword!  

With the EU out of the way, the buck will now stop in Westminster (at least, it will once we are out) and our politicians will now (hopefully!) be more accountable for their policies and actions.  At least, it will be easier to hold them to account.

Other good news on the election front, was the non-election of Jo Swinson who got a lesson in reality - self-righteous pontificating isn't really much of a policy and a bit of advice for Jo, just because The Guardian say it, doesn't make it true. Now, Jo will have to get a real job and work for a living. Welcome to the real world!

Labour too, got a hard lesson in reality. They deserted the working-classes and now the working-classes have deserted them, at least, temporarily. Although, I was sorry to see Dennis Skinner lose his seat. 

Labour hasn't been a working-class party for years, like the politics of Northern Ireland, their view of the world is out of date and so are most of their policies. What we have also seen, is that reality trumps ideology and we are now moving towards a post-ideological world.  The extremes of right and left ideology no longer work when faced with the practical reality of life. Labour needs to restructure and start living in the real world and not in some 'socialist' Utopian ideal that exists only in the minds of those who have only ever lived comfortable, middle-class lives. Especially, when in recent years, they pontificate and insult their voting heartlands with their self-righteous grand-standing and try to ignore the voice of that majority.

On the bad news front, we lost Dr David Bellamy, the naturalist and critic of the 'climate change' fraud. His opposition to that fraud saw him side-lined by the media and many of the environmental groups he was involved with. I hope the day is coming soon when the lies of the mainstream media are finally exposed on this and with the EU out of the way, that will, I hope, be the end to their funding of the propaganda and distortions of the truth.

And if anyone is still in doubt about 'climate change', answer this one simple question (even Jo Swinson could work this one out!) 

Who is more likely to tell you the truth about the effects of Co2 on the climate of this planet?

A - An American politician, Al Gore?

B - An unqualified and uneducated, 16 year old with a learning disability, Greta Thunberg?

C - A naturalist and environmentalist with a Phd in Botany and over 40 years of campaigning on the environment, Dr David Bellamy?

On the news/news front, since you cannot trust the BBC or any of the mainstream services, I would recommend Sky News Australia.  A completely different beast from Sky News UK which, I would never allow in the door but a great channel with some great commentators. You can find it on Youtube.

So, roll on 2020, and the US election.  This will probably return a massive vote for Trump since the US is also enduring the same self-righteous grandstanding that we have endured from the Neo-Liberal Fascist's in our midst but from the Democratic Party in their propaganda war of lies as they try to cover up Biden's dirty deals in Ukraine.  Watch this space...

Ukraine

Visible to anyone in the world

The power battle between East and West is about to be settled.  The power base shifted last year over Syria when China backed Russia.  If China backs Russia again just sit and watch the West hand-wring but be powerless to do anything.

The West is in decline and has been for years and the East has risen.  That's why England is so anxious to keep Scotland in Britain because without it they are just one small country on an island of three.  And, will they still be able to keep their seat on the UN Security Council when they are no longer 'Great Britain'?  Probably not.
