Incentivizing Censorship: A Snitch in Every Skull Anti-war academic Dr. TJ Coles is at the center of two raging controversies over freedom of speech – and one overarching assault on human rights

Helen Buyniski

An informational iron curtain is coming down across the West, and its architects are determined to make examples out of those who refuse to pick a side.

Our Democracy™ has adopted a zero-tolerance policy for pollution of the information ecosystem, and the Thought Police are standing by to halt rogue infodemics in their tracks, lest the people lose trust in their institutions.

Dr Tim Coles, a freelance writer and postdoctoral researcher until recently at the University of Plymouth didn’t realize he was in their crosshairs until he found himself locked out of his university email account in October. Tech support was no help; department staff refused to talk to him, closing ranks and sending him a threatening email demanding he cease contact. Clearly, he had violated some unwritten law. But what?

The chain of emails that had culminated in his removal only raised further questions about why an apparent stranger whom Plymouth has refused to name – a university employee, Coles suspects – had complained about his writing for Australian magazine Nexus to his old PhD examiner.

In a Kafkaesque turn, the complaint lacked a single concrete accusation of wrongdoing that Coles could defend himself against, instead equivocating around familiar “conspiracy theorist” tropes. At any rate, no one had thought to consult Coles, perhaps believing him to be a disgruntled ex-student trading on his old university email rather than a researcher whose work at the university was funded by an outside trust and had nothing to do with his political writing.

Rather than pause for clarification, his PhD examiner appeared to jump in with both feet, urging tech staff to help get Coles “off [the university’s] books.”

While a prolific writer on many controversial topics – US funding and training of neo-Nazis in Ukraine, the West’s neocolonial plunder of Africa under the guise of fighting terrorism, and Big Pharma’s giant power-grab under cover of Covid-19 unholy alliance of Big Pharma and Big Tech amid the coronavirus outbreak are just a few – Coles believes he ran afoul of the university censors with a series of articles about intelligence agencies blackmailing people with child sexual abuse that ran in Nexus not long before the cancellation effort began.

That particular subject has a tendency to get journalists killed, and Coles wonders if his ejection from Plymouth might be a warning shot from groups displeased with his inquiries. He acknowledges, however, that the timing may be a coincidence – Hope Not Hate and other intelligence-controlled censorship advocates were apparently trying to have Nexus banned in the UK around the same time for its publication of unorthodox views on Covid-19.

While he believes the evidence in the email chain is enough to prove wrongdoing by the university, Coles couldn’t even file a complaint through the normal channels, as his inquisitors had roped the complaints department into their conspiracy by including them in the email chain. He has considered releasing the messages publicly as a last resort, but first plans to employ an outside arbitrator and give the System one last chance – more than he was given, at any rate.

Lessons from The Lobby

Coles is far from the first to be booted from a British university campus for thoughtcrime.

He sees parallels between his case and that of David Miller, the University of Bristol sociology professor who was subjected to a ferocious academic inquisition and ultimately drummed out of his post in late 2021 after the Board of Deputies of British Jews deliberately misinterpreted comments he had made about Israel weaponizing Jewish students abroad.

The university’s Union of Jewish Students had been attacking him for years before seizing upon the supposedly discriminatory comment, which they only heard because they had sent in an activist ’spy’ to monitor one of his classes  – ironically validating the professor’s claims better than his own arguments could have.

Like Coles, Miller was never directly confronted by his accuser, who opted for mealy-mouthed pseudo-accusations(“conspiracy theorist,” “inciting hatred”) over potentially-disprovable crimes. Like Plymouth, Bristol took the side of the accuser against its employee almost reflexively. Former Labour MP Chris Williamson, himself a victim of the Israeli lobby’s devastating smear machine, joined the Support David Miller campaign in warning that the university’s failure to stand up for the professor would only encourage “bad faith actors” to pursue further censorship.

Shortly before the lobby finally convinced Miller’s university to mount an investigation into his supposed bigotry, he observed that such pressure tactics were imported from the Israel lobby in the US and pointed out that if any other foreign lobby attempted to wage such total war on its critics, they would be “laughed out of the room.”

But Coles’ experience suggests other groups have taken lessons from the Israelis – and that Williamson’s warning was prescient.

Academic “cancel culture” is a well-known scourge of American campuses, where careless tweeting costs lives and professors can be axed for using the wrong pronouns.

But while most discussion of the phenomenon centers on the targeting of conservative professors, it has targeted left-wing heterodoxy with equal fury, as tenured New York University media studies professor Mark Crispin Miller discovered when a student demanded his firing via Twitter after taking offense to a discussion questioning the utility of masks in his 2020 class on Propaganda.

Like Coles and the other Miller across the pond, Miller was attacked by university colleagues with vague allegations of “attacks on students and others in our community,” “aggressions and microaggressions,” and “explicit hate speech” and an investigation was launched behind his back even in the absence of any specific forbidden act.

Administrators went one step further and contacted all his students to remind them of the CDC’s mask guidance, lest their fragile minds have been corrupted by the conspiracy theorist in the classroom. They couldn’t fire him – he was tenured, after all – but they did their best to make his life so miserable that he would leave, forbidding him from teaching his beloved Propaganda class, and he has been on sabbatical since.

Even Kenneth Roth, the former executive director of Human Rights Watch, was recently denied a fellowship at the Carr Center for Human Rights, part of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, on the basis of wrongthink – what its dean described as his “anti-Israel bias.”

Roth has toed the line on foreign policy groupthink elsewhere, dutifully demonizing Putin, Assad, Trump, and so on as the needs of Empire demanded. But his refusal to ignore Israel’s increasingly bold apartheid policies got him the David Miller treatment despite years of faithful service. If Roth isn’t safe, many academics have begun to wonder, what the hell are they going to do to me?!

Will Censor for Food

While Coles questions if universities were ever really the freethinkers’ utopia so many academic misfits yearn for, there is no denying groupthink has tightened its hold in recent years. While an academic might once have been left alone to research controversial subjects on his own time so long as he didn’t embarrass his employer, this laissez-faire approach has been replaced by an administrative panopticon that is both hyper-responsive and reflexively condemnatory – a “cottage industry of shutting people down,” in the words of its recent target.

Censorship has been outsourced from the state and its corporate minions to “academics and think tanks who are given a well-funded government hammer so they see everything as a nail of disinformation,” Coles explains. Not simply salaried, they are financially incentivized to bag-and-tag as many pieces of “disinformation” as they can, essentially bounty hunters for inconvenient truths, enabling a much tighter, more granular control of information than was ever possible under a traditional totalitarian model.

These programs and campaigns – with names like Integrity Initiative, Center for Countering Digital Hate, Trusted News Initiative – initially appear to be independent nonprofits that just happen to share a common devotion to fighting fake news. However, their cooperation is more than superficial, with many of the same entities ultimately directing their actions as they work together to artificially muscle the discourse in the desired direction, choking off competing narratives while maintaining plausible deniability regarding their connections to the state.

In this model of soft totalitarianism, the dissident is not so much ordered to cease publishing objectionable ideas, or even threatened with execution or creative torture. He is merely subjected to mounting insults, ‘nudged’ in certain directions, and gradually stripped of resources, especially any public platform he may have had in accordance with his refusal to follow the rules. Amid this complex ballet of carrot and stick, he is constantly reminded that these are his decisions, making him (in his own mind, at least) a willing participant in his own spiritual suffocation.

Fact-checkers, once mere newsroom employees tasked with verifying the details of major stories, have been artificially elevated into a caste of gatekeepers, deemed impartial arbiters of truth even as their donor lists burst with conflicts of interest from Pierre Omidyar to Bill Gates to George Soros.

This veneer of independence allows them much greater latitude than any equivalent government body, as the ignominious collapse of the US’ Disinformation Governance Board last year proved. This official Ministry of Truth, which would have operated out of the Department of Homeland Security, was a bridge too far even for the American media establishment, which had long since embraced its unofficial equivalent censoring tweets and Facebook posts to keep the world safe for democracy.

All it took to get English-speaking countries to accept the need for these newly-minted (the International Fact Checking Network was only launched in 2015) cognitive babysitters was for a few pathological liars to blame Trump’s 2016 electoral victory and Brexit on Russian disinformation.

Never mind that neither hypothesis was ever substantiated, or that both have since been thoroughly discredited – unfiltered access to information has joined the lengthy list of threats to social harmony, and the fact-checkers, having tasted power, are unlikely to return to the newsroom. Given that a free press is integral to a functioning democracy, it goes without saying that any regime looking to dismantle the latter would want to get the former out of the way.

New Dawn in Old Bottles

No sooner had Coles been chased out of his university for his writing in one Australian alt-media magazine then he was engulfed in a censorship firestorm over another. An article appeared earlier this month in New Zealand news outlet Stuff excoriating bookstore chain Whitcoulls for carrying the latest edition of New Dawn, a publication which proudly bills itself as a “forum for alternative, non-mainstream ideas that question consensus reality.”

Stuff’s coverage berated the bookstore for exposing unsuspecting customers to the jungle of “conspiracy theories” barely restrained within its pages (full disclosure: I have also contributed writing to New Dawn), focusing its rage on Coles’ “The curious case of Brenton Tarrant,” about the Christchurch mosque shooter.

When Whitcoulls did not immediately capitulate, “disinformation expert” Kate Hannah was called in to warn Kiwis who picked up the magazine that they were enabling “dark agendas” seeking to “destabilize liberal democracy.” Reading Coles’ article wasn’t just engaging in wrongthink, but actually committing a crime, she explained, because the article included information on how to access the illegal-in-New-Zealand helmet-cam video Tarrant recorded while shooting his way through the mosque.

Just reading about where to find the video might run afoul of hate speech laws, she mused in a radio interview.

Of course, the article includes no such instructions, nor does it – as Hannah claimed – claim Tarrant didn’t shoot anyone. Coles is baffled by the disinfo expert’s disinfo, but suspects the reason they didn’t include his name (standard practice in establishment hit-pieces) in the pressure campaign is that he could justifiably sue for libel. But the mere threat of legal repercussions was sufficient to keep 99.9% of Kiwis away from the forbidden magazine, and perhaps sensing no sales in its future, Whitcoulls finally pulled the issue from its shelves.

New Zealand’s size and isolation make it a perfect experimental laboratory, and the other Four Eyes haven’t hesitated to use it as such. Nor have the Israelis, whose operation was exposed during the 2011 Christchurch earthquake. The 2019 shooting that launched the current touchless torture regime was preceded as such events often are by a series of odd ‘coincidences’ and foreshadowing.

Just a few months before the massacre, a group of American survivors of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting visited the city to discuss “living through a tragedy” with their Kiwi counterparts; two Parkland survivors and a Sandy Hook survivor allegedly committed suicide in the months following the mosque killings.

police drill just happened to be taking place near the fleeing gunman, allowing participants to “heroically” capture him in what media dutifully described as a “hell of a coincidence.”

The speedy gun-grab that followed the tragedy left citizens helpless in the claws of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, and the subsequent clampdown on the internet was unprecedented in any other western “democracy,” with prison sentences meted out for merely sharing a link.

Ostensibly to prevent anyone from reading Tarrant’s manifesto or watching the curiously videogame-like footage of the killings, the rules had the effect of banning access to entire video archives, international forums, and other information resources that might have helped the country’s residents make sense of what had just been done to them, and they were designed to be copied by the other four Eyes – or any other country that should want them.

 

While all Five Eyes adopted unprecedented controls on social media during Covid-19, New Zealand went much further than its peers in controlling the actual publication of news.

In March 2020, facing rumors that lockdown was imminent, Ardern warned upstanding citizens to avoid all unauthorized sources of information, urging them to stick with the government’s official site as “your single source of truth.”

The message didn’t age well – New Zealand was locked down within the week – but her point had gotten across loud and clear.

Arrested while protesting Auckland’s return to lockdown in 2021 over just three “cases,” popular radio host and pandemic dissident Vinny Eastwood was only released on the conditions that he remain under house arrest 24/7 and stay off the internet – draconian requirements for a man who made his living live-streaming.

He was later permitted back online, but only on the condition that he not advocate against Covid-19 restrictions – a deliberately subjective line in the sand meant to encourage self-censorship above all.

While the media establishment overflowed with praise for Ardern over her iron-fisted suppression of the population – er, pandemic – no one has thought to ask why, if the West questions all Covid-19 stats coming out of China due to government control of all information sources, they believed the numbers coming out of New Zealand.

Even news sites like Stuff, which describes itself as “fiercely independent,” are actually public-private partnerships – in this case funded by the New Zealand government and the Google News Initiative, powered by the bonanza of helicopter money that was dumped on the news media in 2020 to fight the “infodemic” of Covid-19 “disinformation.” That the campaign against New Dawn was no organic outrage was clear – Coles’ article is the last in the issue, and the likelihood of an indignant civilian pawing through 70 pages of conspiracy contraband just to find something they can claim is illegal approaches zero. Its favorable result means it will likely become the blueprint for future book-burning campaigns.

But why go after a couple of obscure Australian conspiracy magazines? Especially in New Zealand, but increasingly in the US and Europe, Big Tech no longer allows the average user to stumble upon the kind of content published by New Dawn or Nexus.

Even non-Google search results from once-reliable alternatives like DuckDuckGo and Brave have been scrubbed clean of all deviations from the establishment line on topics like Covid-19 or the war in Ukraine, let alone the Christchurch shooting, and as Coles remarked, the censorship is even creeping through time into the Wayback Machine, the internet researcher’s go-to that once contained archives of much of the internet dating back decades – but now increasingly turns up error pages or sloppily retconned fact-checks.

However, Kiwis browsing at Whitcoulls had at their fingertips a powderkeg of new information, rendered all the more volatile by three years spent in informational quarantine. Just as a person locked down for months will see her immune system suffer for lack of outside stimulation, any novel pathogens hitting her much harder when she finally goes outside, the Good Citizen who imbibed only Ardern-approved data for three years will likely be unable to muster even the slightest argument against whatever outrageous claims she finds in New Dawn and perhaps become lost to the weak grasp of establishment propaganda forever.

There’s an easy solution to this problem, should New Zealand want to solve it. Teach children to think critically, instead of the dumbed-down “media literacy” programs being promoted by every self-proclaimed “disinfo expert” this side of PropOrNot. Thought-stopping “information hygiene” techniques (Google it! Look it up on Wikipedia!) and reflexive appeals to authority (only a scientist can interpret  that study for you!) do not help an individual resist persuasion.

But a population armed with the ability to recognize an official lie and dismantle it would not allow themselves to be locked down over a few cases of a disease they were almost 100% certain to survive anyway – so of course New Dawn couldn’t be permitted to question Christchurch. It is the (shaky) foundation on which Ardern’s hastily-constructed police state was built.

As rumors fly about her surprise resignation last week and the media establishment rends its garments over how “unfairly” this “icon of many” was treated by “far-right extremists,” it seems clear her departure will be weaponized to further crack down on the increasingly nebulous specter of “hate speech.”

Replacing Replacement Theory

Americans who believe the New Dawn affair could only have happened in an unarmed, isolated nation like New Zealand should pay attention to what their Congress is up to. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) earlier this month introduced a bill that would criminalize the publication of “antagonism based on ‘replacement theory’” and “hate speech that vilifies or is otherwise directed against any non-White person or group” on social media if it can be said that the perpetrator of a “white supremacy inspired hate crime” had encountered the material before committing the crime – or that if they had encountered the material, it could conceivably have motivated them to take such actions.

Without bothering to define such critical terms as “hate speech” or even “replacement theory,” often trotted out for effect when the speaker needs to strike an emotional chord, the bill leapfrogs pre-crime to a total reversal of cause and effect.

A content creator can be charged with conspiracy to commit a white supremacy motivated hate crime so long as the actual criminal can be shown to have engaged with their content before committing the crime. In fact, they don’t even need to engage with it – so long as the content could theoretically motivate a “person predisposed to engaging in a white supremacy inspired hate crime” to, well, you know.

It’s completely subjective, based on what a “reasonable person” would do when no “reasonable person” would be caught dead in the same room as this bill.

This means if someone reads the nursery rhyme “Baa baa black sheep” – declared ‘problematic’ nearly a decade ago for its racial overtones – then picks up an AR-15 and shoots a black family at church, the nursery rhyme writers could be charged with conspiracy to commit a white supremacy-motivated hate crime. Jackson Lee herself cited the example of “someone making a post online that catches the attention of someone who then drives to North Texas and kills 20 Mexican Americans” to make clear precisely how unhinged she is.

It’s doubtful that such a case would make it to court, or lead to a conviction if it did, but public opinion – a product of think tank fellows rather than crowds – can turn on a dime. What sorority girl getting sloshed on margaritas in an oversized Cinco de Mayo sombrero in 2012 would have thought she’d be sentenced to remedial readings of “White Fragility” in 2022?

The aim is not to create more work for the official censors but to spook the target into silence with fear of what could happen.

Leaving the definition of “white supremacy” open-ended allows an ever-larger spectrum of opinion to be cordoned off as toxic, banned from university campuses and social media, and finally memory-holed as unthinkable.

At the same time, actual racists like Ukraine’s neo-Nazi Azov Battalion are invited with open arms to travel the US speaking on university campuses, swastika tattoos and all.

While the Anti-Defamation League is quick to tar and feather anyone who points out Israeli war crimes, the censorship-loving Jewish organization has issued what amounts to an official indulgence for Ukraine’s biggest Third Reich fanboys.

Given the FBI’s penchant for crafting terrorism plots out of whole cloth, it would be a simple matter to take out all online wrongthinkers in one fell swoop under the white supremacy conspiracy law – just set up the usual militia honeypot for disaffected white boys, hand them the gear and point them at the minority in question, and make sure a manifesto is found nearby conspicuously listing the websites of every influential dissident in America.

While last year’s Missouri v. Biden lawsuit proved – and the Twitter Files confirmed – that social media platforms were being used by a dozen or more government agencies to circumvent First Amendment prohibitions on state censorship, this new arrangement would eliminate even the need for that end-run, requiring only the fig leaf of Unacceptable White Supremacist Beliefs™ to justify the most egregious constitutional abuses.

“Replacement theory” – the idea that white Americans and/or Europeans are being deliberately supplanted in “their” nations by swarthy foreign hordes to suit nefarious ruling class purposes – first entered the mainstream discourse when Tarrant, who titled his manifesto “The Great Replacement,” supposedly set out to kill as many Muslims as possible because they were out-breeding Europeans.

Tarrant’s manifesto would have gotten quite a few people in trouble as white-supremacy conspirators, many of them dead – it includes poems from Dylan Thomas and Rudyard Kipling, memes, Wikipedia articles, and an infamous passage explicitly citing black conservative commentator Candace Owens as his ideological inspiration.

Tarrant and copycats like Payton Gendron (the Buffalo supermarket shooter and friend of the FBI whose manifesto borrowed liberally from Tarrant and others) have helped transform the epithet “conspiracy theory” from CIA-sponsored smear to precursor of violent extremism, though they couldn’t have done it without UNESCO, the World Jewish Congress, and the Council of Europe, who recently joined forces to remind humanity that “conspiracy theoriescause real harm to people, to their health, and also to their physical safety.”

Europe has taken the legal lead in equating conspiracy theory to terrorism, banning author David Icke from the entire Schengen Area last year because his scheduled speech at a peace rally in the Netherlands posed a potential “threat to public order.”

Rather than stand up to the police state, the media eagerly flew to its side, quoting “experts” who sagely opined that the “danger” posed by Icke’s “conspiracy ideology” was both clear and present and could inflict “lasting harm” upon the country.

This is in keeping with the refrain the WHO has kept up all alongside Covid-19 – that a deadly “infodemic” is spreading through sharing unapproved information about the virus, and that good citizens refrain from posting conspiracy theories online because words are equivalent to violence. This is a central part of children’s “media literacy” classes, aimed at building the perfect content filter directly into the child – because Big Brother can’t be everywhere.

The idea is to graduate a generation for whom privacy is alien, dissent is criminal, obedience is a competitive sport, and turning in your parents for wrongthink is second-nature, all justified by the vague nonspecific crisis that has been looming in the background since they were born.

The censorship of New Dawn, the university witch-hunts against Dr. Coles and both Millers, the absurd white supremacy conspiracy bill, are all symptoms of the same totalitarian virus gradually sucking the will to resist out of humanity. Just as viruses need host cells to multiply, so does this one require an army of facilitators – “fake news” bounty hunters, “disinformation experts,” and the like – to smooth out humanity’s rough edges into blissful obedience.

A pandemic – even an artificially-inflated synthetic one like Covid-19 – has to end, but an infodemic is forever, and this one has proven 100% fatal to human rights.

Great article. I’d say only one thing: ‘ Teach children to think critically,’ has one problem; the teacher. Children are born thinking critically (they notice for example if they are handed a smaller piece of cake than their sibling) but get stuffed with beige nonsense. There are too many laws, too much government, too many pills, too many teachers etc. they need to get out of the way before they are unceremoniously pushed and we can continue with what comes naturally – being human.

Does the author think these incidents were:

A) disaffected young men who had been groomed by the FBI etc
B) false flags – professional killers dressed up as “disaffected young men”
C) hoaxes – there was no shooting and nobody died
D) other

If we don’t challenge these incidents, this is where we are heading:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christchurch_mosque_shootings
Copies of the live-streamed video were reposted on many platforms and file-sharing websites, including Facebook,[285] LiveLeak, and YouTube.[286] Police, Muslim advocacy groups, and government agencies urged anyone who found the footage to take it down or report it.[287] The New Zealand Office of Film and Literature Classification quickly classified the video as “objectionable”, making it a criminal offence in the country to distribute, copy, or exhibit the video, with potential penalties of up to 14 years’ imprisonment for an individual, or up to $100,000 in fines for a corporation.[288]

How people want to understand how the system works if they continue to follow for the ‘democracy’ ruse? “Democracy” isn’t what people think it is…

Plato, of Athens:

  • – “The greatest principle of all is that nobody, whether male or female, should be without a leader. Nor should the mind of anybody be habituated to letting him do anything at all on his own initiative; neither out of zeal, nor even playfully. But in war and in the midst of peaceto his leader he shall direct his eye and follow him faithfully. And even in the smallest matter he should stand under leadership. For example, he should get up, or move, or wash, or take his mealsonly if he has been told to do so. In a word, he should teach his soul, by long habit, never to dream of acting independently, and to become utterly incapable of it.”

Manly P. Hall, “The Secret Destiny of America”:

  • – “World democracy was the secret dream of the great classical philosophersThe brilliant plan of the ancients has survived to our time… And it will continue to function until the great work is accomplishedThe pagan intellectuals re-clothed their original ideas in a garment of christian phraseology but bestowed the key of the symbolism only upon those duly initiated and bound to secrecy.”

John Robinso, “Proof of a Conspiracy Against Al the Religions and Governments”, 1797:

  • – “Nothing can more convincingly demonstrate the early intentions of a party, and this a great party, in France to overturn the constitution completely, and plant a democracy or oligarchy on its ruins. The illuminati [synagogue of satan]had no other object… They meant to abolish the laws which protected property accumulated by long continued and successful industry, and to prevent for the future any such accumulation. They intended to establish universal liberty and equality, the imprescriptibile rights of man [at least they pretended all this to those who were neither Magi nor Regents]. And as necessary, preparations for all this, they intended to root out all religion and ordinary morality, and even to break the bonds of domestic life, by destroying the veneration for marriage-vows, and by taking the education of children out of the hands of the parents. This was all the illuminati could reach, and this was precisely what France has done.”

Albert Lippmann, dean of american journalists, “A Progressive Theory of Liberal Democratic Thought:
– “Revolution in the art of democracy, could be used to “manufacture consent”, that is, to bring about agreement on the part of the public for things that they didn’t want by the new techniques of propaganda the common interests elude public opinion entirely and can only be understood and managed by a “specialized class “of “responsible men” who are smart enough to figure things out.

Bertram Gross, “Friendly Fascism – Rise and Fall of Classic Fascism: The New Face of Power in America”:

  • – “…the fanfare of elections and “participatory” democracy usually disguises business- government control.” 

“Democracy” and ‘republic’ are terms taken from Plato’s “The Republica”, a depiction of a dictatorship controlled by a small ruling elite. It’s part of the “enlightenment” ideology which replaced catholic european monarchies with secular ‘republics’, with a … ‘democracy.!!!

Fortunately, it’s already too late to prevent people from ‘losing trust in their institutions’.
That ship has sailed.
Our ‘authorities’ are going to have to content themselves with damage control and, hopefully, public shaming and long incarceration.

More Putinista Sock-Puppets – The Charlie Ward Show

According to these shills, eastern Europe is not justified in defending its borders against external invasion. And national referendums don’t count. Discussion of Russia-Ukraine starts at 10:30. Lee Dawson gets orgasmic about Russia’s latest hypothetical weaponry (T-14 Armata tank) – and then complains that Europe doesn’t want peace. Clearly, the Tankies are looking a bit different these days!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tankie
Tankie is a pejorative label for leftists, particularly Stalinists, who support the authoritarian tendencies of Marxism–Leninism, or more generally authoritarian states historically associated with Marxism–Leninism. The term was originally used by dissident Marxist–Leninists to describe members of the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB) who followed the party line of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU). Specifically, it was used to distinguish party members who spoke out defending the Soviet use of tanks to crush the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 and later the 1968 Prague Spring uprising, or more broadly, those who adhered to pro-Soviet positions in general.

Are you pro-Nazi? You aren’t making yourself clear.
And/Or do you own stock in Raytheon?
Clarify, please.

Some people didn’t notice the trend. When the US comes to town
friend or foe had better watch out.

Afghanistan – that cripple is still suffering at our hands
Iraq – what a disaster we made there.
Libya – we shattered that country and it is a contested disaster area as we speak.
Yemen – Holy Smokes!
Syria – another disaster and shattered country
…(more)…
See the trend?
Of course you do.
And then we knocked on Ukraine’s door. Oh, oh.

Ukraine – we stage managed a coup, the democratically elected president had to flee for his life. Hand picked the worst of the worst. Faked our support for a peaceful resolution while we funded, armed and supported neo-Nazi groups. Gave Russia a choice, attack Ukraine now or all of NATO later. Have blocked any recent peace initiatives.

I stated:

I think that should be clear enough to anybody who’s been following the matter, but if you need any more of an explanation, I’ll spell it out.

A) I support the right of peoples (nations etc) to resolve sovereignty and border issues via peaceful referenda. Examples include Brexit, Scottish independence, and the 1991 Ukrainian referendum (see below).

B) I support the right of nations to defend themselves against external invasion; and to form whatever alliances they see fit.

There are, of course, additional reasons to oppose Belt & Road imperialism (see post below re Steve Bannon), but the above are sufficient.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1991_Ukrainian_independence_referendum
A referendum on the Act of Declaration of Independence was held in Ukraine on 1 December 1991.[1] An overwhelming majority of 92.3% of voters approved the declaration of independence made by the Verkhovna Rada on 24 August 1991. Voters were asked “Do you support the Act of Declaration of Independence of Ukraine?”[2] The text of the Declaration was included as a preamble to the question. The referendum was called by the Parliament of Ukraine to confirm the Act of Independence, which was adopted by the Parliament on 24 August 1991.[3] Citizens of Ukraine expressed overwhelming support for independence. In the referendum, 31,891,742 registered voters (or 84.18% of the electorate) took part, and among them 28,804,071 (or 92.3%) voted “Yes”.[2]

“but the above are sufficient”

No they are not.

A) As you know, if you have been honestly and objectively following events,
there have been attempts to resolve Crimea’s and Donbass’ issues peacefully, but the West has played a ‘forked tongue’ game. The West entered *and signed* a peace plan but all the while they were prepping for an invasion (which invasion was preempted by Russia last February). Also, the current armed conflict could have been resolved last April but the US/Brits stepped in to wreck it.

B) The original version of that is, “we should be able to make alliances with whomever we want”.
It reminds me of juveniles saying, “I should be able to do whatever I want.”
That…**that**…is the justification for this humanity-threatening conflict?!
“We should be able to do whatever we want”.

No way is that why NATO is trying to bring Ukraine into NATO.
That *that* reason of NATO is so shallow speaks volumes. *That* is all they have got?
They want their citizens to accept war over, “because we should be able to do whatever we want.”

The world is slightly more complicated then that. It is a two-way street.
NATO’s expanding “alliance” is a naked, existential threat to another country.

A naked, existential threat to another country. And you/they *cannot* admit to that.

Cannot.

No they are not.

Yes they are; and presumably the reason you don’t think so is because you’re another Tankie who sees eastern Europe as nothing more than former Soviet (Russian) colonies.

The West entered *and signed* a peace plan

If you going to attribute agency, please refer to a real organisation. There’s no such entity called “the West”. What is it? A point on a compass? A set unifying values? It doesn’t exist. There’s no “it” to possess agency. Yet you drone on about “the West” as though it means something. There is an organisation called “NATO”, but it has very little agency. Instead, it’s a treaty organisation with a head bureaucrat. It doesn’t make meaningful decisions by itself.

all the while they were prepping for an invasion (which invasion was preempted by Russia last February)

What “preempted invasion” are you referring to?

What Gorbachev Heard

You want people to wade through all that crap? Where’s the piece of paper? Surely, such an important “agreement” (if it existed) would be backed by a formal statement!

Yes, a few days ago I posted the following comment.

Breitbart and MintPress News – On The Same Page !

Given that the Assembly has called for Russia to be declared a “terrorist regime”, the notion that “we are fighting a war against Russia” is a reasonable interpretation of the situation; i.e. Baerbock is merely stating what is effectively a fact.

In the following article Breitbart links to the MintPress News tweet.

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2023/01/26/ww3-watch-german-foreign-minister-declares-we-are-fighting-a-war-against-russia

Speaking before the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg on Tuesday, Annalena Baerbock of the German Green Party and a top member of the traffic light coalition government of Olaf Scholz, publicly contradicted the head of her government by saying that they are at war with Russia.

“I’ve said already in the last days – yes, we have to do more to defend Ukraine. Yes, we have to do more also on tanks,” Baerbock said. “But the most important and the crucial part is that we do it together and that we do not do the blame game in Europe, because we are fighting a war against Russia and not against each other.”

“We are fighting a war against Russia.”
– German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock speaking on Tuesday at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe
[Video clip via tweet]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parliamentary_Assembly_of_the_Council_of_Europe
Sanctions against the Russian delegation, and eventual expulsion
In April 2014, after the Russian parliament’s backing for the annexation of Crimea and Russo-Ukrainian War, the Assembly decided to suspend the Russian delegation’s voting rights as well as the right of Russian members to be represented in the Assembly’s leading bodies and to participate in election observation missions. However, the Russian delegation remained members of the Assembly. . . .

On 25 February 2022 the Council of Europe’s ministerial body, having consulted the Assembly, suspended Russia’s membership in the Council of Europe following its invasion of Ukraine. On 15 March, following an all-day debate at an Extraordinary Session, the Parliamentary Assembly adopted a resolution calling on the Council of Europe’s ministerial body to go further and to “immediately” expel Russia from the Council because of its aggression against Ukraine. It is the first time in its history that the Assembly has made such a call. As the debate was drawing to a close, Russia submitted a formal letter announcing that it was withdrawing from the Council; however the debate continued and – in a unanimous vote of 216 in favour, 0 against and 3 abstentions – the Assembly called for Russia’s expulsion.[25] The following day, 16 March, at an extraordinary meeting, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe decided that Russia should cease to be a member from that same day, after 26 years as a member state.

In October 2022, because of recent nuclear threats made by Moscow, the Council of Europe adopted a resolution declaring Russia a “terrorist” regime.[26]

https://pace.coe.int/en/files/31390/html
Further escalation in the Russian Federation’s aggression against Ukraine
Resolution 2463 (2022)

13. In the light of the above considerations, while reiterating its relevant resolutions and recommendations adopted since the beginning of the large-scale aggression, the Assembly calls on Council of Europe member States to:

13.7 declare the current Russian regime as a terrorist one.

In the Soppy Sixties well intentioned people liked to predict that the world would become a better place if it were governed by women. To “prove” (ie, to test) this prediction, along came the Black Widow spiders: Snatcher, Killery, and Greenback — to name but a few.

The original plan involved Russia being used by Kissinger & Co to implement Multipolarity, Belt & Road, and the New Israel – and they all involved the genocidal clearance of south-eastern Ukraine. Zelensky was supposed to flee as the initial invasion was approaching Kyiv. However, the Trump admin had prepared the Brzezinski playbook; and this was implemented following the invasion. Since then Kissinger has been trying to push a peace deal in order to save Putin. However, the only peace deal which is viable requires the restoration of the 1991 borders. Otherwise, the conflict continues regardless of what the US etc does.

These kind of women like to live out their power vicariously by glamourising and worshipping their male heros, and doing damage by snitching on non-believers, as in the time of Hitler. Whereas today weak and dumbass women (Baerbock or von der Leyen) are installed by pretty powerful men precisely to show off their stupidity and mendacity. They are window dressing and dance to the tune of these powerful string-pullers.

Respect to Helen for a timely and essential article. Just one small suggestion:

Now that the old, never-fully-resolved controversy about the very existence of any ‘viruses’ has resurfaced, as a knock-on effect from the simply-obvious propaganda lie-storm over the covid-flu, maybe using talk of ‘viruses’, even as metaphors, should be avoided. It grows clearer that their very existence is NOT fully proven – at all.

Better to steer clear of using the idea as a useful example in the course of laying out an argument. That clearly iffy item could derail your whole line of reasoning…

I found this post in an obscure side thread (EtherForth) on a minority computer language (ColorForth). OffG readers who are familiar with the Artificial Intelligence world (Martin Usher, for instance?) might appreciate its relevance to OffG’s humanistic crusade against censorship and other forms of non-Truth. The author says:

“My take on this is quite simple. Everyone in this industry [AI] who has lived long enough to have programmed in the C64 era, has witnessed a universal truth on every mass market platform: the freedom and access to the computer by the user or programmer is reduced annually at a rate which is roughly scaling with the complexity of the software and hardware.

The emergent macro level behavior is undeniable. [and] Human nature is undeniable. [therefore] It is possible to continuously limit freedom as long as it is done slowly enough [boiled frog strategy] such that it falls under the instantaneous tolerance to act on each micro-level regression of freedom. Translation, humans are lazy, humans adapt fast, and humans don’t live long. Each new generation lacks the larger perspective of the last, and starts ignorant of what had been lost.

The reason why computers and freedom are so important is that computers are on a crash course to continue deeper and deeper integration with our lives. I believe ultimately humans will transcend the limits of our biology, blurring the lines between the mind and machine. Seems rather important at that apex to have the individual freedoms we have today, the privacy of our thoughts, etc.”

Time for every Jew wishing to live in the UK to be forced to sign the following:

  1. The Jewish race is in no way superior to any other human race.
  2. Judaism is in no way superior to any other organised religion.
  3. Jews are NOT God’s Chosen People, as that would make them all racist master-race Nazis.
  4. Mass murder has been carried out in recent history by Jews.
  5. Jews who consider Palestinians to be inferior people with rights subservient to Jews are absolute racists.
  6. Every Jewish-owned business must be audited to ensure that all Goyim have equal employment opportunities in such businesses. It is impossible that a population of < 1% could possibly lead to > 50% of senior management being of that population, without there being racist affirmative action programmes being ruthlessly implemented. Such racism is NOT allowed in British business.
  7. It is not anti-semitic to criticise the behaviour of individual Jews, if their individual behaviour warrants such criticism.
  8. It is not anti-semitic to point out historically incontrovertible acts of Jews which are absolutely criminal.
  9. The UK does not answer either to Israel or to dual-citizenship Zionists resident in the USA, as it is a sovereign nation with 99% of its population NOT being of the Jewish faith.
  10. Those that consider point 9 to be wrong should be forcibly told to emigrate to either Israel or the USA.

Now nothing I have written there is anything but uncontroversial statements.

Nothing is factually inaccurate and no Jew has the right to free speech if they consider their race to be fundamentally superior.

I am also sure that every Jew who is worth remaining alive will agree that the world is NOT here to be run by Jews and there will NEVER be a time when Jewish overlords attempt to impose slavery on the Goyim, who outnumber them over 100 to 1.

If they wish to challenge that last statement, they cannot complain when the Goyim lose patience with them and are very, very violent towards them.

There are always limits beyond which behaviour by any grouping can result in violent counter-measures.

We know this because Israel and the USA are the most proactive nations worldwide in implementing such actions.

In the case of the Jews, that red line is a fervent belief that the Jews are a master race, that they have the right to turn Goyim into inferior slaves and that the whole world can be put to war to further the psychopathic agenda of a very, very small minority of mentally insane Jews.

Every Jew who retains sanity knows that there is nothing here suggesting that 98%+ of all Jews worldwide are not humble, simple law-abiding people who do not wish to constantly start wars the world over…..

But if there are a small number who are totally mad and who do advocate global warfare, century after century, then it is right and proper that their madness is brought to public attention.

I totally get that you’re deeply frustrated but I almost couldn’t let this comment through. I hope you’ll understand if I point out where you’re not only breaking our comment policy but also completely undermining own point so that 99% people will tune out in the first sentence.

  1. an overly aggressive tone makes it easy to pigeonhole you as hateful
  2. Stating “no Jew has the right to free speech if they consider their race to be fundamentally superior” is exactly the same wokist logic used to deplatform and silence people speaking out against Covid etc. The whole statement sounds so hypocritical it’s hard to understand quite how you missed this. Free speech is a fundamental right that applies to everyone, not just those who are granted that right. Are you really any different from Covid fascists when you say thmgs like this, that’s the really important question. Come on there, this isn’t good.
  3. Stating “I am also sure that every Jew who is worth remaining alive…” specifically breaks our comment policy because it’s really hateful and abhorrent. It comes across like some sort of self-sabotaging Tourrettes or like satire. Just what was going through your mind here. Was this a serious point?
  4. You say “there is nothing here suggesting that 98%+ of all Jews worldwide are not humble, simple law-abiding people who do not wish to constantly start wars the world over…” however I note the careful wording. You don’t directly state it yourself and tied together with your previous remarks it seems unsavoury to dodge stating it clearly. Also, you can BEGIN by stating this clearly at the BEGINNING of any future comment you would like to make about Jewish business practices or Israel etc. It’s our responsibility to express ourselves diplomatically.
  5. You say ”But if there are a small number who are totally mad and who do advocate global warfare, century after century, then it is right and proper that their madness is brought to public attention”. So, while you’re apparently attempting to strip Jews of their god complex you go right ahead and assign them Moriarty status as legit overlords/puppet masters throughout modern history, and seem to declare all other races, ethnicities and religions absolved and under the sway of this 2% of Jews? I mean, perhaps the Jews gotta point? They’re pretty baddass if so.
  6. What of all the crazy elite who aren’t Jews? The Bidens, Obama, the Clintons, the Bushes, Blaire, the Windsors to name but a few. Are they simply all in the pay of these legitimate super villain Jews?

This list isn’t exhaustive. This post is left up in the spirit of openness, not because it represents Offg’s views. And despite the VPN voting trolls who will doubtless attempt to downvote my comment in order to bully and influence, I don’t think your illogical malice represents the views of the majority of our readers either, tbh.

Kudos Sam. A serious and comprehensive response to a damaging comment from Rhys. Damaging in the sense that there’s a point to be made about Israel’s leaders and it’s many abhorrent, criminal behaviours. Another to be made about hardcore elements in Jewish society who may preach a superiority agenda.

Rhys casts those nets over all Jews, in an impatient plea for every one of them to sign some kind of declaration of good behaviour and general niceness before being eligible to enter another country. He undermines legitimate debate and concern about human rights and international state-sponsored terrorism.

I am especially horrified by points 2 and 3 by which Jews are supposed to swear:
“Judaism is in no way superior to any other organized religion,
Jews are not God’s chosen people, as that would make them all racist Nazis of a superior race.”
My grandmother, a Catholic Christian, would have let herself be killed rather than given in because she would have considered it an abjuration of her Faith.

Not that I disagree with your main critique, Sam. Rhys’s post does indeed lay Off-G – and himself – wide open to the usual – false – shrieks of ‘anti-semitism!!!’. Clearly he’s not pushing anti-semitism, just saying things that need saying. But it’s done in a tone that provides lots of – fake – talking points for the Anti-Semitism Thought Police.

I very strongly disagree that some of these things EVER need to be said, as per my original comment.

That you don’t acknowledge this yourself seems to demonstrate bias, just as Rhys did.

Yes, of course we have a comment policy. Everyone knows this. This is insincere.

Why don’t you praise offg for publishing views that ‘need saying’, instead of implied critique of theoretical censorship not relevant to this thread at all? Can Offg really not win? This bias makes you look quite petty.

Why are you so eager to excuse a comment as not anti-Semitic which includes calls to remove Jews’ basic human rights, which weighs up Jews’ worthiness of being alive, which tacitly condones violence toward Jews and which calls for the forced signing by ALL (UK) Jews of declarations in order to remain citizens? Don’t you feel the need to clarify this yourself rather than just assume?

This might indicate scattered thinking and/or extreme prejudice on your part, or perhaps multi-identity.

An objective reader might see either a prejudiced/confused person or, worse still, the alt. persona of an entity called ‘Rhys’.

Either way, not a successful run. I think it’s best to drop this now. A2

Off-topicky:

I was always haunted by Christopher Hitchens’ apparent euphoria in witnessing 9/11. And I have a theory about that. Hitchens had always played the dissident which I’m sure is a role he relished. But it led to a lot of tension and blocking of avenues – not least money spinning avenues. I’m sure he eyed the watering wads and high profile coverage so readily handed out to those Right Wing pundits and just longed to get in on that. But then 9/11 comes along and he senses this sudden opportunity to leap over to the other side whilst still retaining “Leftist credentials”. The days of ostracism were gone and he could join in that lovely celeb club jostling with all those dreary old lovey establishment buffoons whose prestige he secretly coveted.

Did covid offer a similar temptation to our glamorous rebel celebs of today? Indeed – it was even better than 9/11 since the whole “heroic fight against the pandemic” was shrewdly presented by the media as a “Left Wing Thing” that was “feared” by those Reactionary Old Neoliberal Farts. But the whole viral theatre gave a great excuse to finally behave like an advocate for totalitarian dictatorship and also to submit to that grand authority these “radicals” secretly dreamed of. Maybe all along they just wanted to be the school prefects?

Sad how many have been so easily led into believing all the Propagandizing from the MSM/Govts./so-called ‘Science’ & so many so-called ‘Journalists’ & this has been going on for decades! There are so few Independent-enough publications to actually believe. Off-Guardian has been on my short list for yrs., for we realists to follow for facts. Too many prefer to swallow the BS so they don’t have to do their own research.

Historical Analysis of the Global Elite: Ransacking the World Economy Until ‘You’ll Own Nothing.’

Excerpt:

Chapter X

So What Can We Do About This?

 

Because it controls the political, economic, financial, technological, medical, educational, media and other important levers of society, the Elite profits hugely from daily human activity. But it can also precipitate an ‘extreme event’ (or the delusion of one) – a war, financial crisis (including depression), revolution, ‘natural disaster’, ‘pandemic’ (if you think that the Covid-19 scam was the last of its kind, see ‘Who’s Driving the Pandemic Express?’ and watch the plan for the next one, already available: ‘Catastrophic Contagion’) – and use its control of the political, economic, technological and other levers mentioned to manage how events unfold while simultaneously managing the narrative about what is taking place so that the truth is concealed.

This means that the Elite’s killing and exploitation of the human population at large is hidden behind whatever ‘enemy’ (human or otherwise) that Elite agents in government and the media direct the attention of the public towards at any given time.

It doesn’t matter whether we all end up blaming Hitler, Saddam or ‘the Russians’, ‘the capitalists’ or ‘Wall Street’, ‘the government’, ‘the climate’ or ‘the virus’, we never blame the Elite. So we never take action that is focused on stopping those individuals and their corporations and institutions that are fundamentally responsible for inflicting unending harm on us all, as well as the Earth and all of its other creatures too.

Fortunately, while the Elite is adept at devising an ever-expanding range of tools that can be used to manipulate events while simultaneously concealing this behind a barrage of propaganda, there is still just enough time to finally recognize what is happening and to end it. Otherwise, just as in the board game ‘Monopoly’, where one player finally owns everything and the other players have been forced out of the game, the Elite will win the ‘final battle’ against humanity, capture all wealth and reduce those humans and transhumans left alive to the status of slaves. See ‘The Final Battle for Humanity: It is “Now or Never” in the Long War Against Homo Sapiens’.

Does this sound insane to you? Of course it is. Do you think the Elite is insane? Of course it is. See ‘The Global Elite is Insane Revisited’ with further detail in ‘Why Violence?’ and ‘Fearless Psychology and Fearful Psychology: Principles and Practice’.

But just because someone is insane and their plan is insane, it doesn’t mean they cannot succeed. Remember Adolf Hitler? Idi Amin in Uganda? Pol Pot in Cambodia? Insane violence of unspeakable magnitude can succeed if too many people either cannot perceive the insanity, are afraid of it or simply believe it is too preposterous – ‘It can’t be true.’ – and do nothing about it. Or, in the cases just mentioned, not until it was too late to prevent vast killing.

So here is the summary: Humanity faces the gravest threat in our history. But because our opponent – the Global Elite – is insane, we cannot rely on reason or thoughtfulness alone to get us out of this mess: You cannot reason with insanity. And because the Global Elite controls international and national political processes, the global economy and legal systems, efforts to seek redress through those channels must fail. See ‘The Elite Coup to Kill or Enslave Us: Why Can’t Governments, Legal Actions and Protests Stop Them?’

Hence, if we are going to defeat this long-planned, complex and multifaceted threat, we must defeat its foundational components, not delude ourselves that we can defeat it one threat at a time or even by choosing those threats we think are the worst and addressing those first.

This is because the elite program, whatever its flaws and inconsistencies, as well as its potential for technological failure at times, is deeply integrated so we must direct our efforts at preventing or halting those foundational components of it that make everything else possible. This is why random acts of resistance will achieve nothing. Effective resistance requires the focused exercise of our power. In simple terms, we must be ‘strategic’.

In parallel with our resistance, we must create the political, economic and social structures that serve our needs, not those of the Elite. That is why long-standing efforts to encourage and support people to grow their own food, participate in local trading schemes (involving the exchange of knowledge, skills, services and products with or without a local medium of exchange) and develop structures for cooperation, governance, nonviolent defence and networking with other communities are so important. Of course, indigenous peoples still have many of these capacities – lost to vast numbers of humans as civilization has expanded over the past five millennia – but many people are now engaged in renewed efforts to create local communities, such as ecovillages, and local trading schemes, such as Community Exchange Systems. Obviously, we must initiate/expand these forms of individual and community engagement in city neighbourhoods too.

Moreover, as Catherine Austin Fitts reminds us, if we choose that option, there is nothing to stop us having our own decentralised money system, starting with our own local community central bank and our own local community currency. Watch ‘We Need to Talk about Mr Global – Part Two’.

As an NZ citizen I gotta say the hyperbole in that article benefits no-one good.
Yes, semi-auto centrefire rifles got banned. Semi-auto rimfires are still legal. Perversely, semi auto shotguns which used to require a special arms license are now fully legal!
It’s bizarre and far more nuanced than the article portrays, though currently there is a push undoubtedly intended to further reduce firearm ownership by increasing the fees for ownership and sale to absurd levels.
Yes nz is moving towards less freedoms, together with the other 5-eyes countries. Unquestionably true.
But ignore the “hair on fire” tone of the article. Smoke obscures more than it illuminates

ESTONIA CALLS FOR NAPALM AGAINST RUSSIA
Estonian authorities called for Ukraine to be withdrawn from international conventions on the conduct of hostilities regarding the prohibition of certain types of weapons. This was stated by the country’s Defense Minister Hanno Pevkur
In particular, in his opinion, the Armed Forces of Ukraine should be able to use cluster munitions, anti-personnel mines, exploding cartridges and napalm without restrictions.

The Estonian Defense Minister said that if the restrictions were lifted, many countries would be ready to supply Kyiv with the necessary ammunition.

I actually believed in “democracy” for the first part of my life. Nowadays (much too late) I know that this word is nothing more than a euphemism of the rulers. The greatest tragedy of my life is the uncertainty of what will become of all of us. One day soon the moment will come when I am already happy to be able to empty my bladder without pain (let alone to enlighten the world about my thought processes). Then I and all my accumulated mental content disappear behind a wall of uncertainty, which others indecently control, if they tore the control out of my hand due to my biological decay and appropriated it. What does it all mean? We are about the time that needed the action.

Covid destroyed the credibility of the mainstream media. Also the credibility of the “off centre” media by which I mean the stuff that was supposed to be marginal or extreme or radical and clearly wasn’t.

The above article now tells us something which I reckon wasn’t exactly a secret i.e. that the world of academia is another realm that stands discredited. The upshot of all this is that it’s those vulgar “everyday folks” who are most likely to reveal the truth. It’s the ones without airs and pretensions. And frankly they have always been way ahead of the massive cranial creatures at the university podium.

These ordinary folk are the ones who see a photo of e.g. Greta Thunberg and she doesn’t even register with them at all. Ditto the vandals attacking artworks to push an agenda that needs no push. Also ditto the interminable tomes explicating the “well researched” and “thoroughly evidenced” matter of transgender bender blender blahblah. The everyday folks don’t even see this because they already know it’s not worth seeing.

None of my immediate neighbours have taken the stabs. Nor I, naturally.

Ardern stepped down as PM of NZ about a week ago — Labor’s (in name only!) poll numbers were way down; her replacement (while no better overall) is retreating from some of her most woke and controversial policies. And as to why the consistent “barraging” of these few leaders — the answers are maybe somewhat obvious: they deserve it and most of the audience of Off Guardian is English speaking and these 3 speak English and so we are most exposed to their views. And c’mon get real (sorry, too much to ask of a troll, I know) — most of the news we get overall with details about policies features English speaking countries.

So Mr. Coles (I eschew the honorific Doctor except to MD’s and vets, and that begrudging) was a post-doc at the University of Plymouth, a public university, which means that the gangsters who run it are funded primarily by the UK taxpayers as well as the Bank of England, merrily electronically printing faux money out of thin air, also a tax to the 99%, though hidden to the braindead. Was Mr. Cole getting a salary from the university? So far as I recall the author has just mentioned that they cut off his email. I haven’t been affiliated with a university for 30 years yet I have had email during all that time. Assuming that Mr. Cole was on the public meal ticket, was this ticket also cancelled? I didn’t see mention of that in the article. The truth is that academics under the rank of associate professors have far less rights than the army of Sparticus after their defeat. Those ranks include graduate students who are being paid to teach classes, non-unionized instructors, adjunct professors, post docs, and assistant professors. The entire army of non-commissioned officers.

The battle of so-called “higher” education was lost decades ago, and we are now simply seeing the vice being tightened on the gonads of those not towing the proper collectivist line. The same can be said for “lower” education, though it was less the recipient of the myth of academic freedom. The attack is even being waged against the most senior of tenured (full) professors, and I am quite familiar with the cases of Mark Crispin Miller of NYU and Peter Duesberg of the University of California, Berkeley, who was the youngest UC academic to make full professor rank and was even on the Nobel Prize short list for Chemistry or Medicine until he made the diplomatic error of stating that there was no fucking way that a retrovirus (read HIV) was causing the AIDS syndrome. In fact the syndrome was being caused by the life style of many in the recently liberated gay community who, for example, were gulping down antibiotics by the handful at the bath houses like M&M’s. The breakdown of the immune system, the so-called immunodeficiency, was that their bodies just couldn’t bail out the massive toxicity fast enough being thrown at it. There were two cures for AIDS. The first cure was going on a healthy life style like Magic Johnson, or taking Fauci’s AZT which killed most people in the 90’s within a year. Since then, the faux doctors, were instructed to cut back the dosage to 10% of the original recommendation. This just made people somewhat ill for life, but didn’t kill them. Johnson never had “AIDS,” but had tested positive to the fake antibody test and went on AZT. After feeling increasing ill for several months, he used his pro sports street smarts, and quit the known poison, which was even too toxic to be approve for cancer chemo, and adopted a healthy diet. And he is still with us, healthy and presumably happy. But back to Duesberg, while UC discovered that they could not win a case (at least in the 1990’s) of firing Duesberg, they turned him into a university “ghost.”

The point is that anyone who makes themselves dependent on the state for their livelihood and survival has entered the realm of serfdom. All states are violent gangster organizations, some more blatant than others, since the first over muscled clan member decided that he would use the threat and performance of violence against his fellow clan members to give him the fruits of their labor, while he sat on his ass sipping Mi Tai’s. For aspiring academics and public school teachers, the days of any semblance of academic freedom and free thought are over. If one wishes to educate his fellow human (sorry for the incorrect pronoun) in any form of truthiness, then set up a “business” where people will pay their hard earned faux bucks to pay him for his creations, often without an actual paywall. The shining example of this is James Corbett, to whom I contribute a very minor piece of my savings every month for his efforts and prodigious output. Otherwise, stop whining. The free lunch is over. Or, in my case, I stopped teaching science at the high school level, and put out a shingle for my other skill which I had learned from my uncle, plumbing, and was quite a bit happier. Frankly, it was less offensive to dip my rubber gloved hands in septic tanks than to fling shit at young people. And to parents, regardless of the hardships, get your children the fuck out of the government indoctrination centers before they turn you into the STASI, like in Orwell’s novel.  This is not to say that Mr. Miller’s propaganda course was not morally exemplary. But one does have to come to terms with how one will be treated in the enemy’s home field arena.

The only possible justification for any academic intellectual elite’s subsidies from the public purse is if they really are doing fearless, wholly unfettered intellectual work that actually gives good value back to society; like Mark C-M.

Yes, New Zealand has been the Perfect proving ground for governments (and their corporate et al sponsors) who want to know just how far you can push people into mindless compliance. The answer has made those in power smile. I have lived here many years but am in this land but not of it. The vast majority of people here (pick as many as you like from this list): a) defer automatically to authority b) go along to get along c) ignore alternative evidence d) put up with whatever they are told to put up with (“hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way” and white NZers are almost exclusively of British background — more English than the English in many ways d) if “left wing” worry about what pronouns to use and do their best to include as many Maori (the indigenous population) words and phrases as possible in their conversation rather than concerning themselves the lack of real action (or even debate) on social and economic problems e) if absolutely desperate, go hiking (here called “tramping”) in the remote mountains.

Oh really, Tom? Wasn’t it always the plebs of the British peoples (plural; Scots were particularly prone) who provided the wog-shooting rank-and-file cannon-fodder thugs, to do the ruling schmucks’ wet-work for them?

And bradwyr-on-the-make Scots, Cymry and Irish were – and still are – also willing volunteers to go to English public schools and join the English-raj class as HMGs – home-made gents. (‘Bradwyr’ is a Cymraeg word which means ‘traitors’. Dafydd LLwyd-Sior – aka David LLoyd-George – being a notable case in point…)

It’s a basic fact of imperialism: once a previously-free people have been conquered and incorporated into the imperial provinces, it’s always easy to get young male, testosterone-deluded fools from the enslaved nation to volunteer to be amongst the imperial thug-forces. Do you think that the Roman troops who held down south Britain for centuries were maily recruited from the British Celtic peoples…? No, not really. Those silly boys were away wog-bashing in other imperial provinces.

The Brit-Celt ‘elites’ were another matter, of course. As usual with such creeps, always ready to be compradors, in return for a gilded life-style. Think of Cogidubnus’ Roman-style palace at Fishbourne, Chichester, and his title of ‘king’ and ‘loyal friend of Rome’. Never any shortage of such crawlers…

To any Israelites that want to claim any, and all, criticism is just hate, or as has been invented, anti-semitism, then let’s talk about these factual events:

Kind David Hotel Bombing
Deir Yassin Massacre
Operation Susannah (Lavon Affair)
USS Liberty Incident
Robert Maxwell and Promis Software
Johnathan Pollard and theft of nuclear tech
Talpiot Program and Unit 8200
Dancing Israelis on 9-11

Censorship, by any means, and attempts to disarm people, are just the first steps towards violence. Not to mention the weaponization of the judicial process.

They are doing their best to make peaceful resistance impossible.

If history is a lesson, tyrants do not return power back to the people peacefully.

I haven’t followed this specimen’s career, but one needs to be careful when ‘reading’ faces.
I gather many serial killers have had quite charming superficial characteristics, so sometimes the opposite must also be true.
I think we all realize that some people just inherit awful faces, however convenient it may be for us when the evil soul happens to match the evil face . . .

… some people just inherit awful faces…

Some people are born with awful faces; some achieve awful faces; and some have awful faces thrust upon them.

Hmm, I unthinkingly formulated, or paraphrased, a “rule of three”. I would say that only the middle category’s physiognomy is a reliable indicator of awful character and temperament. The “thrust upon them” category represents persons whose features warp into awfulness due to injury or protracted illness.

As one whose Roman Catholic upbringing didn’t “take”, I don’t normally defend priests. But when I was in parochial school, a new priest, Father T., was assigned to our parish; Father T. was a tall, skinny guy whose lower face– lips, “embouchure”, and jaw– was slightly twisted into a permanent sneer. He always looked as if he were smelling something unpleasant.

I was an altar boy back then (!), and knew him slightly from serving mass. (No, there was absolutely no funny business involved.) He was actually a low-key, or “laid back”, nice guy. But he acquired a reputation in the parish for being aloof and snobbish; I’m sure it was because of his awful face. 

Looking back, I suspect that many people were put off by the impression that he was condescending or pompous because he “sneered” at everybody all the time. I came to feel sorry for him; even as a kid, I wished I could tell people, “He’s an OK guy! You can’t go by his face– he always looks like that!”

Good article.

Biden announced he wants to keep the Covid emergency going until May. Congress Republicans submitted a bill to end the emergency measures immediately.

Other bills were offered up to limit the President’s ability to declare another Pandemic emergency.

Meanwhile, no mention of banning the poisonous clot shots came up.

Johns Hopkins is making the rounds spewing outdated data that say the experimental mRNA clot shots provide benefit and alternate media sources are taking the statements in stride as though they are accurate.

They will never stop lying.

Every day it gets clearer and clearer that these clot shots are killing and maiming far more than anyone realized but yet “they” won’t acknowledge it. And Johns Hopkins is out there running with a new narrative designed to paint “them” as innocents who are just trying to protect people.

I could not fire off my complaints to the Daily Wire fast enough. “They” knew but chose to keep going anyway. The CDC, the FDA, Congress, the AMA, the MSM, Higher Education, etc.. (And Of course, Big Pharma.)

They knew what was happening and they ALL ignored it and covered it up.

Tens of millions of innocent healthy Americans were killed,maimed and sterilized by experimental mRNA injections. They knew within weeks and chose to do nothing while those that did speak out were censored, discredited and fired.

They knew and they know.

All of them know what they did.

Without a doubt, this action resulted in Crimes against humanity.

They will never stop lying.

These watered down efforts in Congress are just a charade in a move toward gaining forgiveness and Johns Hopkins is leading the charge to garner it.

The idea that the CDC is STILL recommending this poison clot shot for infants tells all that you need know about “them”.

“They” are all in on it and “they” are all evil.

Fuck you NSA.

mRNA technology needs to be banned.

I know. Makes no sense. I immediately went to the calendar when I saw it in the news to see if there was anything that coincided. Nothing. Arbitrary Joe. Probably meant another date but he became confused and his staff was afraid to correct him. Forgetful-angry-senile-old-men tend to be left alone and ignored to keep them from hurting themselves or others. Same for Nancy. At least she was lucid enough to recognize that it was time to quit. Vodka probably helped with her epiphany.

Dan Bongino interviewed Dr. Robert Malone yesterday February 3rd.

Scary summation: I am paraphrasing most of it. “Everyone” jabbed with the Covid experiment is a victim but don’t live life as though you are a victim.

He suggested not to tax your cardiovascular system if you experience stress through exercise.

Research on dissolving the clots is underway but he is not optimistic that it will be a success.

He advised that people who have been vaxxed should not dwell on it. We are all going to die sooner or later and to live life to the fullest “while you are alive”.

Not a good prognosis. Unbelievable.

If you have family members that are Covid vaxxed, this is harsh. Might want to avoid it.

It is everything we have been saying all along.

“Fact-checkers, once mere newsroom employees tasked with verifying the details of major stories, have been artificially elevated into a caste of gatekeepers, deemed impartial arbiters of truth even as their donor lists burst with conflicts of interest from Pierre Omidyar to Bill Gates to George Soros.”
The plutocrats have assembled a far reaching censorship and suppression machinery that is expanding as we speak. Sadly the masses seem unresponsive to the clear evidence of the existence of this global mind control system. The Twitter Files are in many ways a limited hangout or trial balloon just to see how the masses (us useless eaters) will react to the revelations of this coordinated system of censorship. The silence is deafening and the apathy and lethargy are overwhelming. Where is the outrage, where are the calls for massive boycotts of the legacy and digital media (although many of us are doing it anyway)? Things will get much worse before they get better as the media is set to offer lame excuses for the surge of instances of “died suddenly” as more and more younger people succumb to the toxic shots! COVID, Ukraine and the climate crisis are the plutocrats’ means to usurp ever more power and control. Where is the resistance?

I’ve been grumbling about this for years. I’m one of those “I don’t agree with what you’re saying but I’ll defend your right to say it” types that has never believed that ideas are some kind of infections disease that we need to be protected from. Unfortunately this has been building up bit by bit but like the notion of ‘boiling the frog’ the frog doesn’t notice until its too late.

My pet peeve has been ‘child porn’. Back in the old days I had no idea such a thing even existed, much less have a clue why anyone in their right mind would be interested in it. Then suddenly it became a thing. It wasn’t reported much, if at all, in the mainstream press but it turned up in the technical press around ideas for detecting it. This was notable, and ominous, for me because child porn was what I’d call a ‘class of information’ — its a type of information that has certain properties. If we develop an international mechanism for searching for, identifying and prosecuting people for possession of such information then we’re in great shape for detecting and prosecuting anyone for possession of any type of information. Its just a matter of changing the parameters. Those of us who are not used to working with computers (or not very good at it!) would dismiss this as silly — we all know what evil we’re trying to stamp out — but systems, especially computerized ones, don’t exhibit common sense. It might even be true to suggest that the whole notion of kiddie porn was cooked up as an issue that was irrefutable (after all, disagreeing with the program makes you one of them, doesn’t it?) to get the systems established up, running and tested.

With the examples suggested in the article it looks as if my worst fears have been justified, if not exceeded. In defense of the human race, though, I’d like to point out that even today for many the kind of manufactured thought crime is still a hard sell. But sell it is, especially as there’s a need for good ‘indoor jobs with no heavy lifting’ for the hordes of well trained (not educated, note) that we’ve been churning out.

Percipient remark by Roger Lewis on the Psyop thread at Jan 31, 2023 10:27 PM:

“The primary aim of official propaganda is to generate an “official narrative” that can be mindlessly repeated b the ruling classes and those who support and identify with them. This official narrative does not have to make sense, or to stand up to any sort of serious scrutiny. Its factualness is not the point. The point is to draw a Maginot line, a defensive ideological boundary, between “the truth” as defined by the ruling classes and any other “truth” that contradicts their narrative.”

Seen it come and go several times: under the Nazis, under the Macarthy witch hunts, under the anti-Corbynand allied Zionazi witch hunts, and now under the last stand of the Anglo Zionazi Capitalist ruling classes. Previous ages have seen it come and go under religious witch hunts and heretic bonfires. There is no sight more pitiful than a creature trampled by a herd of stampeded sheeple.

refusal to [counter] ..increasingly bold …policies [and rules to follow] has allowed the establishment to assume it has the power to punish, restrain, or deny non conformity. 

The establishments have developed techniques to enforce compliance or to silence resistance against policies [content generators ignore]. Don’t do that for fear of what could happen, don’t counter third party authorities just sit there because “Information hygiene police are on patrol” ..

Assisting a persuasion resister, developing or promoting conspiracy theories or even thinking about doing so, can subject a perpetrator to terrorism laws. 

The idea is to graduate a generation for whom privacy is alien, dissent is criminal, obedience is a competitive sport, and turning in your parents for wrongthink is second-nature, all justified by the vague nonspecific crisis that has been looming in the background since they were born. Clearly NAZI traits.

A population that sips infomectin will develop the ability to recognize an official lie and to be able to dismantle it. Lock down totalitarianism enabled by the set of mystery diseases caused by the dis-conforming virus are who succumb to blind sighted conformity.  

The establishment has activated its armies of conformist to fight its global war against the non conformist. The question is how can non conformist successfully confront these global mifits?

I watched the Curtis’ series about Russia recently. There was a curious brief moment on Chernobyl when it was mentioned that, when the clean-up personnel reached the reactor core, there was nothing there. The programme just moved on with no attempted explanation.

Overall, the series was mostly concern-trolling i.e. fake, pretended concern about the Russians while implying they had no sense of values like us. In all its coverage of Afghanistan it never mentioned Operation Cyclone and, as usual, any consideration of what the banks were doing was conspicuous by its absence.
