Has a president ever been replaced before due to dementia..?

this could fuel the cancer theme happening in to U>K where Kate and Charles have cancer, (so they say)

USA with dementia alzheimer could help sell the new

Possible Preventative Treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease

Projected for early 2024, the trial’s third phase would enroll hundreds of patients with the ultimate goal of gaining FDA approval for the vaccine within five years.

You see there just like us and a new vaccine is on it way.

Why did Sunak call an early election? Most likely because Farage was (presumably) going to set up a social media operation to target the 40% disaffected and habitual non-voters in key constituencies – as was done with Brexit. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AggregateIQ AIQ was founded in 2013 by Zack Massingham, a former university administrator and Jeff Silvester.[2] As of February 2017, AIQ employed 20 people and was based in downtown Victoria, British Columbia.[3] AIQ has attracted controversy over its involvement in the Vote Leave and BeLeave campaigns in 2016 and the Cambridge Analytica scandal that broke out in 2018. Two years after the Brexit vote in 2016, it was revealed that AggregateIQ had been paid £3.5 million by four pro-Brexit campaigning groups – Vote Leave, BeLeave, Veterans for Britain, and Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party – to design software aimed at aggregating personal data and influencing voters through messaging on social media.[4] Under… Read more »

Brexit and MAGA exposed the weakness in the Globalist strategy. That strategy involves: A) controlling the MSM. B) using the MSM to define the notion of “centre” – such that geno- and demo-cidal technofascism can be labelled as “centrist”. C) anybody not aligned with the technofascism is labelled “far right”. As a consequence, masses of ordinary people find they’re not represented in the mainstream – not in the media, nor in politics – so they become disaffected and drop out of the mainstream media and political process. The problem with this is that the proportion of disaffected tends to keep growing – now probably at around 50%. In theory, the disaffected can be targeted by largely bypassing the MSM – as was done with Brexit and MAGA. Of course, the counter to this would be to create fake opposition. Or to taint genuine opposition by linking them to Putin! —… Read more »

The establishment gotcha against Farage demonstrated that even a decade-old statement could be paraded as appeasement. In the BBC leadership interview, the second question by Robinson was re Putin (@4:00) – and Farage did reasonably okay at dealing with it. And rather than being indicative of a supposed change of UK position on Ukraine, the stunt was all about restricting the Reform vote. BTW: 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% 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… Read more »

This has been in the cross-hairs for ages:
https://dumptheguardian.com/politics/article/2024/jul/06/labour-nick-boles-planning-tsar

They want to keep eroding any ability of local people to obstruct their technocratic planning whizzes. Putting a Tory in charge will be sold as political savvy to sell it to Tory areas but it’s really another revelation of the unaparty. Building on the green belt shows how real their green credentials are.

These new towns offer plenty of opportunity for both social engineering and political gerrymandering. Expect zero analysis of that.

Labour occasionally talk of decentralisation and devolution but once in power centralisation of power is immediately what they do.

Gavin Newsom was the name missing from the consideration of Democrat alternatives to Biden.

He was the one the Fraud was endorsing immediately after the debate. Since then, they’ve gone to Biden, shamelessly repeating the idea that it was merely that he hadn’t had enough sleep (see how much Joe cares!).

One thing this election has confirmed for me is the shocking naivete of the people around me. One friend, who I know has voted Tory, voted this time for Labour. He said glowing things about Keir and I realised he’d swallowed the media bilge without question. But then, a few years back I’d had a ferocious screaming match with him over covid. He’d swallowed the shit then too.

I’ve often imagined how conversations would go with those around me if I was to try and engage them in the sore topic of what was ACTUALLY happening and I always sadly come to the conclusion that no-one I know would have the slightest concept of anything I said. They would denounce me as a “conspiracy theorist”, “flat earther” etc. And even those who consider themselves “Right wing” would accused me of being “far Right”. Such is the dreary gullibility and unthinking compliance with the media of everyone I know.

I’ve always been a cynic George, but he last 4 years has pretty much removed any hope I had that we might survive. Possibly as a species, but certainly not as a civilization.

Personally, I have the suspicion that mass media has given the average man the feeling they are informed, whilst giving the (media) owner class the ability to lie like never before.

Today is the vote and a lot of memes are getting pushed. There seems to be a determination to dissuade as many as possible from voting. And another movement to convince you Labour has already won.

I keep wondering. For the first time I think the unthinkable – to vote Tory! This as a tactical move to try and stop Labour getting in. Also to prove to myself that I don’t fall any more for the now anachronistic crap about Left/Right.

Or maybe I’ll spoil my ballot paper?

There is no hypocrisy. Please try to think outside the ossified box that the media depends on. Labour and Tory are labels that stand for “Left” and “Right”. There is of course no difference between them in that they both serve the ruling class who decide everything. But there IS a difference in terms of presentation i.e. what the public have been led to expect from that “Left” and “Right”. This is why e.g. the 2000 USA election had to serve up the Republican Party as the govt. The US had already decided on the “war on terror” and needed the “war party” to be in charge.  A different use of the illusory Left/Right paradigm came when Blair’s New Labour finally came to power –Thatcher herself admitting that New Labour was her “finest achievement” since it marked the point where Labour agreed with the Tories and had effectively become “Tory… Read more »

‘Labour, with just 20% of the vote controls 64% of the Parliament.’
So will Starmer PM be labeled “Mr 20%” ?
And is 20% a ‘mandate’ ?

Early reports had Labour with around 36.7% of the vote,
garnering at least 410 seats…Jeremy Corbyn got more
votes last time, around 40% – but lost…
Rigged elections, or hugh abstention (especially by

No, just the FPTP system showing what happens when the Right is split in two but the left isn’t. Exactly the same thing happened to elect Mrs Thatcher in 1983 when the SDP and Labour votes were more or less equally split.

This election is the most unrepresentative in history of the UK. It shows that FPTP is not fit for purpose. But there’s always one party at every election that benefits from it and the prostitute Ed Davey is now apparently saying FPTP is OK, despite two generations of his predecessors campaigning for PR as a central plank not of electoral pragmatism, but rather as a deeply held conviction.

I don’t believe Corbyn was genuine – but it was noticeable how the media kept saying his seat was going to be very close (i.e. anti-Corbyn people: bother to turn out) and it wasn’t in the slightest. If the national polls had been that wrong, it’d be a major scandal.

My guess is they became alarmed at how much traction opposition to Labour’s position on Gaza has gained and wanted to maintain some safety valves.
