The Future of Australia Day (and a Short History of Oz Rock)

The Australia Day Memory.

I have one memory of Australia day from childhood, I assume it is an amalgam of several different Australia days from the early 1980s.

The day is scorching. I am at a gathering with my extended family. It is the middle of the day, people are drinking beer and meat is being cooked on a barbecue. Cricket is on the television and people are clustered around it watching Australia who are losing badly and someone comments “At least you’d think they could win on bloody Australia Day” and it is all downhill from there.

The fact that we were celebrating the beginning of the colony and therefore the beginning of the land genocide of the indigenous population never occurred to us for a moment. The reason for this was ignorance and complacency.

A Brief Aboriginal History

Sadly many Australians still live in that world of ignorance and complacency but far fewer than at that time as attested by the large demonstrations yesterday against the national holiday being on the date of the beginning of the colony.

Scene from one of the “Invasion Day” protests on January 26th, 2017.
Scene from one of the “Invasion Day” protests on January 26th, 2017.

The date of the national holiday has little practical importance but it becomes insulting when people become indignant and upset when indigenous Australians refer to the date as “Invasion Day” missing the fact that the choice of this date makes it impossible for indigenous Australians to view it as a day for celebration.

The British, it should be remembered,  classified Australia as terra nullius (nobody’s land) pretending the indigenous people did not exist, thus saving themselves the trouble and expense of negotiating with them and enabling the wholesale theft of the continent at almost no cost.A musket here, a blanket there.

It is sadly typical act of arrogance to expect indigenous Australians to celebrate the anniversary of the beginning of the land genocide that began in 1788.

The intent of the entire national day project (unity and celebration) is thus defeated, and will always be defeated while the date is January 26th. In some major cities more people are protesting the date than celebrating it already.

“The crowd at Federation Square – estimated by some to be up to 50,000 people – is believed to have eclipsed the number of people who attended the earlier Australia Day march along Swanston Street.” (Source)

Invasion Day Melbourne rally draws tens of thousands of protesters

Given that the nation was born on the New Year and the nation has tried to have a more constructive and inclusive relationship with the indigenous population who were simply treated as non-entities by the British, New Years Day would be a better choice for the national day of celebration .

People Should Simply Ignore the Government and Start Celebrating Australia Day on New Years Day or another.

The Government has the ability to make January 26th a public holiday and stage their tiresome and corny ceremonies but they do not have the power to make anyone participate in or pay attention to any of it. Nor do they have the ability to prevent anyone celebrating Australia Day on a different date.

It seems like a good idea to me to begin to stage Australia Day on another date and this will provide a positive outlet to celebrate Australia that would provide a nice compliment to the entirely negative (with good reason) Invasion Day movement.

The logical choice, with the built-in advantage that it is already a public holiday and the day the nation actually came into being would be New Years Day.

Celebrating Australia.

Growing up most of the big Australian heroes were sports players. We were told that the batting of Don Bradman and the winning runs of Phar Lap, the champion racehorse of the day, “kept people going” during the depression of the early 1930’s. The whole line is infantile nonsense in retrospect but that has been the standard in Australia.

Recently a video was posted on the internet showing Ukrainians in Kiev staging a march celebrating the life of the Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera. I cruelly commented “Who or what else do they have to celebrate?”Yet if we cast aside our sporting heroes, whose achievements are made in an entirely insignificant field, the same question could easily be asked of Australia.

“Who or what do we have to celebrate?”

There are many practical things of course,there is so much we take for granted having never known any different. In terms of culture it becomes more difficult.

Between the mid 1970s and late 1980s Australian music, pop music  seemed to go through a real heyday with a lot of great music being created in a short time and although several of the bands that were part of that broad wave, such as Midnight Oil, INXS, the Divinyls and Icehouse rose to international prominence, many of them were well past their best by the time it happened meaning that much of their best work remains neglected.

Here is a small sample of some personal favorites from this era and earlier with some brief explanatory notes where appropriate.

The Easybeats.

The Easybeats were one of the greatest bands of the 1960s,and are rightfully celebrated as the first great Australian band. Their greatness is undisputed however the Australian part of the story is cloudy.

The Easybeats were a British style band composed almost entirely of Brits who formed in a Sydney migrant hostel that still operates, today the site hosts a prison for people who are awaiting deportation named the Villawood Detention Centre.

They were not just British they were just off the boat. So, they were not Australian but they were a truly great band based in Australia, their brilliance must have helped other local musicians, they set a great example. Friday On My Mind is far and away their best known tune but they had numerous classics.

The Easybeats – Friday on My Mind

Friday On My Mind is a brilliant song but it is very British and very white, Good Times is a little funkier, less Beatles more Stones, this song was a massive hit decades later when covered by INXS.

The Easy Beats “Good Times”

Eagle Rock by Daddy Cool.

This song has been so overplayed that it has become easy for Australians to despise it, a fresh listen reveals Eagle Rock is a classic piece of pop blues reminiscent of a boppier Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1971 it was still a chart topper as late as 1990 when it hit number one in New Zealand.

Eagle Rock


AC/DC were drawn from the same group of British immigrants who formed the Easybeats. The guitarists Malcolm and Angus Young were the brothers of Easybeat George, who assumed production duties with AC/DC.

All of the important members were Brits, even those who came from outside the core coterie and after Bon Scott died in 1980 they became a completely British band.

Few guitarists have matched the heavy catchy riffs of Malcolm and Angus Young. I must admit that having been a big drinking band for me, I have never loved the as much since I stopped.

This is a classic typical AC/DC track with a simply brilliant video of them driving through Melbourne on the back of a flatbed truck. When Bon Scott was alive they were one of the greatest ever hard rock acts, they were pretty mediocre after his death except for Back in Black, the first post Bon Scott album.


Cold Chisel.

Cold Chisel came from Adelaide, Australia’s fourth largest city and not a noted cultural centre. Cold Chisel oved from Adelaide to Melbourne and then Sydney, where they finally found success.

The band never achieved great international success and this was a loss to the rest of the world. They were a strangely literate bluesy hard rock band capable of brilliant straight pop songs such as “Forever Now” as well as pub rock classics such as “Cheap Wine”. Interpersonal relationships within the band were often troubled with drunken internal brawls a regular item on the menu and they never made the international impact they deserved, but the work stands up very well.

Cold Chisel – Saturday Night

Cold Chisel – Forever Now

The Divinyls.

The Divinyls were a pop rock outfit in the Easybeats and (to a lesser extent) AC/DC tradition, they opened their set for many years with their brilliant version of the Easybeats “I’ll Make You Happy”, they were a brilliant band who achieved international success in the early 1990s when they were a crass imitation of their former selves with tracks like “I Touch Myself”

Chrissy Amphlett was a great singer and songwriter along with guitarist Mark McEntee, but because Chrissie Amphlett played quite a rough female character when Olivia Newton John style Kewpie dolls were the fashion they struggled for many years to make any international impact and even in Australia their greatness seemed to be under rewarded-Science Fiction is one of the greatest pop singles released anywhere anytime,yet it only reached number 13 on the Australian charts on release in 1983.(Source)

Icehouse were a vehicle for the classically trained Iva Davies.They had many great songs,my personal favorite is probably “Can’t Help Myself” but their most important song without a doubt is “Great Southern Land” one of the few truly great songs written about Australia.

Icehouse – Can’t Help Myself

Icehouse – Great Southern Land


INXS started in the late 1970s as a run of the mill post punk type outfit. By the third album Shabooh Shabaah in 1982 they were writing some excellent songs such as Don’t Change and the One Thing and had created a semi-original sound, a strange hybrid of synth heavy pop rock.

With their fourth album the Swing in 1984 the group improved immensely and created some of the best songs in the history of Oz Rock. Two albums later they became massive with the first three singles from 1987’s Kick making the top 3 in the US, after that they basically fell off but they made a string of classic singles right through the 1980s, this track from 1984’s the Swing is a high point.

INXS – Love Is (What I Say)

Midnight Oil are probably the greatest band Australia has produced, they were very idiosyncratic, they did not sound like any other band at all and they were the most ostentatiously Australian band of all yet still managed to achieve mass international success due to the quality of their work which speaks for itself.

Midnight Oil – Saturday Night at the Capitol part 9 – Lucky Country

One of the reasons I really love Midnight Oil is the fact they were one of the very few people in Australia who made some attempt to understand and explain what is going on.

Some of their lyrics are very interesting and thought-provoking, even to those who don’t share their political views, these passages from the 1983 classic “Power and the Passion” provide a great pocket glimpse into Australia then and now.

“People, wasting away in paradise…..

Sunburnt faces around, rhe skin so brown
Smiling zinc cream and crowds, some days the beach never a cloud
Breathing eucalypt, pushing panel vans
munch junk food, laughing at the truth

cos Gough was tough til he hit the rough
Uncle Sam and John were quite enough

Too much of sunshine too much of sky
It’s just enough to make you want to cry…….

I see buildings, clothing the sky, in paradise
Sydney, nights are warm
Daytime telly, blue rinse dawn
Dad’s so bad he lives in the pub, it’s underarms and football clubs
Flat chat, Pine Gap, in every home a Big Mac
And no one goes outback, that’s that
You take what you get and get what you please
It’s better to die on your feet than to live on your knees”

Coup Attempt Underway in US?

The inauguration of is only days away and while it is hoped that the people who have been trying to prevent and destroy the Trump Presidency before it begins will recognise that they have lost, and that they need to respect the wishes of the US people as expressed n the election, there are multiple powerful signs that a decision has been taken by certain elements to destroy the Trump Presidency one way or another because any rapprochement with Russia is completely unacceptable to the secret rulers they represent.

While Russia is not and does not want to be an enemy of the United States, and represents no threat to the people of the US, Russia is an implacable foe of the world domination project being run by the ruling Western oligarchs using the US military and government as a front.

That is the key reason for the manic and hysterical response to the Trump victory.

Because while it matters absolutely nothing to the people of the US that Russia annexed Crimea, this move and the Syrian operation were both completely unacceptable acts of disobedience from the point of view of the ruling cabal.

These operations brought to a sudden end the complete US-Western hegemony that the Western elite assumed would last forever following the collapse of the Soviet Union a quarter of a century ago.

In that time a very deep and long term commitment to this project was created within the Western elite and their minions. These people cannot let go of the dream of complete power on the planet regardless of the consequences and would prefer to fight a war against Russia, than accept the reality that the days of the lone hyper power are over.

The Truth Before the Lies.

Late on election night as the (for them) terrible news of a Trump victory sunk in and before the campaign of mega- lies had started, Ben Mankiewicz of the Young Turks stated the truth about influence and the election.

“With everybody on her side, with everybody trying to help her . Frickin even Republicans were coming out of the woodwork to try and help her. Everybody! Jay Z, Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen, everybody, every frickin television comedian…..and she still lost to this guy, what does that tell you?” (Source)

Mrs. Clinton received overwhelming support from the entire US and Western cultural elite but this support was not enough to counteract her weakness as a candidate and the difficulty of winning three consecutive terms in the White House, something that has happened only once in living memory when George H. Bush defeated Michael Dukakis in the 1988 election.

In the major US print media support for Clinton over Trump ran at a ratio of around 25 to 1, with more than 500 outlets endorsing Clinton whilst around 25 supported Trump.

In the weeks after the election the faction in power engaged in a twin track policy of infiltration and sabotage. Great hope was placed in Mitt Romney being appointed Secretary of State and using the position to neuter any attempts by Trump at rapprochement with Russia or break from the foreign policy “blob” or the Deep State in any way.

Once it was announced that Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson was to be the nominee as Secretary of State, all hope of infiltration evaporated, this was the final straw.

Zero Hour Approaches?

The approach became one of pure sabotage, and in the past several weeks we have seen increasingly aggressive and desperate moves from the faction in power and their media outlets to delegitimise the election and claim that Russia manipulated the process on Trump’s behalf in what is clearly a co-ordinated and concerted attempt to destroy the Trump presidency before it begins.

Regardless of your opinion of Trump these efforts should be vehemently opposed for reasons Glenn Greenwald explains eloquently here:

After the evidence free and concocted “Intelligence reports” with their core evidence being “cause we said so” failed to achieve the objective, an MI6 dirt file was produced in all it’s wonder and glory.

It is not merely the sexual element of this dossier that is patent nonsense, the claims of a private server communicating with a Russian bank are also bunk as both the anti- Trump Washington Post and relatively neutral  Intercept explained months ago.

Here’s the Problem With the Story Connecting Russia to Donald Trump’s Email Server

That secret Trump-Russia email server link is likely neither s ecret nor a Trump-Russia link – The Washington Post

In these cases, when the evil ones become desperate, the lack of evidence is merely incidental. The absence of facts obfuscated by an avalanche of lurid lies. Some writers have noticed the similarity to the prelude to the Iraq war.

The Russian Dossier Reminds Me of the Row Over Saddam’s WMDs

The tactics are very similar, you pile one lie up on top of another and seek to bewilder the opponent who is not sure which lie to attack and while they are trying to figure out how to respond you pile more and more on, creating a  grand compound lie.

In the case of Iraq, the big lie was not that Iraq had chemical or biological weapons, that is still what some claim but the real lie was that Iraq represented a threat to the world that needed to be acted upon. It made no difference even if Iraq did possess these weapons, they were still no threat to anyone and the leaders of the West knew that perfectly well. There may have been sincere and well meaning people who genuinely believed Iraq had these weapons but nobody in DC or London (or Canberra and Warsaw) truly believed that Iraq was going to do anything with those weapons. The idea that Iraq was a threat that needed to be addressed was the core lie. The rest is smoke.

In this case we begin with the semi-credible story that people in Russia entered the DNC server but there is zero evidence that Russia was the source for the Wikileaks releases, nor that the Russian leadership were involved, nor that the Wikileaks releases had any significant impact on the election,nor that Russia even favoured Trump.

In fact the Wikileaks revelations got very little traction in the US media and it was the extraordinary intervention of the FBI Chief James Comey eleven days before the election that switched the momentum of the campaign in Trump’s favour as the same parties who are now trying to blame Russia admitted at the time.

The parallels do not end there with one micro-brain on twitter attempting to directly link the Trump and Hussein families.

The barrle being weel and truly scraped here.
The barrel being well and truly scraped here.

The Bottom Line.

The faction in power are not willing to accept defeat and every attempt is being made to make rapprochement with Russia impossible and/or remove Trump from the scene. It is very possible that the President elect and close associates will be publicly branded Russian agents by certain US intelligence agencies in the coming days. Arrests and indictments are possible, regardless of the lack of evidence.

It is also possible that certain elements will attempt to remove Trump from the scene entirely, or even Obama, for what is required is a crisis of sufficient magnitude to declare a National Emergency and activate the Continuity of Government process that supplants the elected government as happened quietly after 911.

Shadow Government Is at Work in Secret

Hopefully rationality and good sense prevail but there are numerous indications that the war party, the Deep State, the Cabal operatives in the US Government however they may be described, are going to do something dramatic in the coming days and months regardless of the will of the US people or the risk of destabilisation and conflict.

The internal battle is taking place beneath the surface but representatives of the factions communicate their views in the media.

Here some of them explain some of what is happening.

Democrat Senator Chuck Shumer on the Rachel Maddow show, January 3rd. (Source)

Rachel Maddow: “….he’s taking these shots, this antagonism, this taunting of the intelligence community.”

Shumer “Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you, so even for a practical supposedly hard nosed businessman he is being really dumb to do this.”

Maddow: (in gleeful expectation) “What do you think the intelligence community would do if they were motivated to?”

Shumer: “I don’t know but from what I’m told they are very upset at how he has treated them and talked about them.”

Alex Jones of Infowars, January 6th. (Source)

“Oh yes the Council on Foreign Relation private meetings that Hillary and John Kerry were at, you think somebody recorded those., (bellows) You think somebody recorded those hoss! You think we don’t have people everywhere jackass!”

(Note: This is very interesting as when Jones refers to “we”-“we have people everywhere” he is obviously not referring to Infowars which has it’s only real base in Austin and a small staff , the “we” who have people everywhere clearly refers to some intelligence agency or faction, and when combined with Jones’ recent pronouncement that long term associate Steve Piecnevik is a current CIA operative, it seems that Alex Jones and Infowars is a vehicle for one or more factions of US intelligence. This may explain the wildly erratic quality of Infowars work and their massive blind spots in certain areas.

But the real lesson here is that what we are observing are the surface ripples of a battle taking place within the CIA and the other elements of the US and international deep state, Rachel Maddow, Gordon Duff, John Schindler, Louise Mensch and almost the entire major media represent the ruling faction, Fox News, Drudge and Infowars are pretty much the only large outlets who  openly support faction 2.

Credible and intelligent people are claiming the whole thing is theatre, it has gone well beyond that in my opinion but there is one important kernel of truth in that hypotheses and that is whatever side you are on, you are supporting the CIA)

AJ continues: “It’s all out there, so damaging it may destroy this country but before you are able to strangle it for sure and destroy it, it is going to be released… All of it.”

“So you broke your deal with Trump, you weasels, because a lot of this probably does need to come out it is so bad. Needs to be reform, taken care of, people need to be dealt with . A lot of folks need to get cancer, the real fast acting type. They need to agree to it.”

“But no you’re going to go on to the end, you are not going to stop. You are going to keep trying to sabotage things once Trump gets in, we understand that.We know that you are not going to go away, we understand you are never going to back off, We get it.”

“And so you want to have a big fight, you want to have a civil war? Fill your hands, go ahead, you don’t think everyone has been running around forever getting ready for this?”

Following his delivery of that incendiary missive, which I take seriously despite Jones’ spotty record in many areas and incessant exaggeration. Alex Jones apparently left town on an apparently unplanned holiday and has not reappeared in the Infowars Austin studio in the following ten days.

David Brooks explains the motive.

David Brooks is a long time New York Times columnist, a reliable establishment voice over decades with an intense and undisguised loyalty for the current power faction.

Here he offers a quick summation of the reason that Trump is unacceptable and must be either moved or removed lest the New World Order project drift even further from it’s course.

PBS News-hour, January 6th. (Source)

“But the thing that should most concern us is a shift in American foreign policy, we have had a bipartisan belief in American foreign policy based on the post World War 2 institutions that believed in democratic global world (sic) which Russia and the Soviet Union was often seen as hostile to, and most Republicans and Democrats have always basically believed in this world order.”

(Note: The conflation of the Soviet communist monstrosity with Russia is a classic lie the minions slip into the conversation to obscure the fact that there is no basis for the US to perceive modern day Russia as a threat or an enemy.)

“Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin and maybe Marine Le Pen do not agree with this basic structure of the world.They seem to have no respect for the institutions that were created after World War 2 and they see a potential alliance of populists around the world who would fight Islam and restore a certain semblance of traditional values. And so we could be seeing a pivot in American foreign policy which may be in the mind of Trump, certainly seems to be in the mind of Stephen Bannon, his ideologist and this is a piece of that larger shift.”

Any form of nationalism, no matter how rational or reasonable, is forbidden.

The truth of course is that the only threat the US faces and the only real threat the US has ever faced in the post Civil war period at least, is the tyranny of the cabal imposed from within.

The Istanbul Nightclub Massacre.

The story is that a lone gunman entered the Reina nightclub in the upscale Ortaköy neighbourhood of Istanbul at around 1.45am on January the 1st and murdered at least 39, wounding a further 69 of the nightclub patrons before changing from the black attire he was wearing when he arrived into an all white outfit and evading all the Turkish security forces making a clean escape from the scene.

Among the victims were at least 15 foreigners from mainly Western and Middle Eastern nations.

2017 Istanbul nightclub attack

There is video of the beginning of the event where a man can be seen to open fire randomly on a number of targets in the street before making his way into the club. The man is dressed in black and wielding an AK47 rifle.

The gunshots cause many sparks to fly from the objects they strike in a manner that is eerily reminiscent of the Dallas “spark hits” episode, although less conclusive because in that case the spark hits were accompanied by a police officer doing a really bad job of pretending to have been shot. On the other hand the people on the street in Istanbul  appear to be reacting in a genuine way to the attack.

Sparks fly as the gunman opens fire in the street outside the Reina nightclub on New Years Day.

ISIS Claim responsibility?

The identity of the gunman is not known and although someone purporting to represent ISIS has claimed responsibility, the claim of responsibility made reference to a gun and grenade attack but none of the survivors make any mention of any explosives of any kind and that combined with the fact that anyone can claim to be ISIS and claim responsibility for anything via social media, this cannot be accepted at face value.

After the November 13th Black Friday “attacks” in Paris a similarly inaccurate claim of responsibility was made, in that case the ISIS letter referred to attacks in parts of Paris where no attack took place.

It seems quite amazing that someone could perpetrate a massacre on that scale in the middle of a massive city with a reported 17,000 police on the streets and make a clean getaway by changing into different clothes.

The whole story sounds unbelievable and when you watch the interviews with some of the survivors and supposed victims it becomes very hard to sustain belief in the authenticity of this event.

Jacob Raak is the American CEO of a company named TECH Manufacturing, Corp. a seemingly small specialist tech firm based in Pennsylvania. In the following video Jacob Raak gives an amazing performance that must be seen to be believed.

Turkey Injured eyewitness saw one gunman in Istanbul club shooting.mp4

The gunman seen entering the club on CCTV is wielding an AK47 assault rifle, the diameter of the rounds is 7.62 millimeters by 39, the bullet leaves the weapon at a speed of 715 metres a second so it is more than a little odd to see Jacob Raak with a thin ribbon of material around his thigh covering what could only be a minuscule wound and no sign of any blood whatsoever.

Presumably the story will be fixed in the coming days we will be told that Jacob Raak was hit by a ricochet rather than an actual bullet or something like that but when Jacob Raak left hospital on the way to the airport to fly home, only one day after the event, there was no sign at all that he had been shot at all, it was clear that his leg bore no bandages or other signs of medical treatment or injury.

Jacob Raak leaves hospital and his thin, skin tight pants make it clear that there are no bandages on his right leg less than two days after being shot by an assault rifle.

Other Witnesses and Survivors.

Other eyewitnesses are also deeply unconvincing in the general tenor of their comments.

This al Jazeera video features a female witness Sinem Uyanik who in a less obvious way is as unconvincing as Mr.Raak in her description of events.

“Before I could understand what was happening, my husband fell on top of me,” said Sinem Uyanik, who follows inexplicably with “I had to lift several bodies from on top of me before I could get out,” (Source) Her husband was only lightly wounded so she is not referring to him. The story does not make sense.

Fake Terror is a proven fact in the Middle East.

Almost all of the violence and terror in the Middle East is authentic but we know for a fact that some events are staged. Several months ago a video of a clearly staged and fake bombing in Iraq was released, a real explosion takes place in an empty street and after the blast fake victims congregate for the cameras and play their role.

Something Strange Happened After a “Car Bombing”

This event was reported as a real attack around the world but it was not.

The presence of fake victims around an event strongly implies that the event was not authentic because if there were real victims from a real tragedy there would be no need for them.

So while, given the scale of the attack, the wide variety of victims nationalities and the near universal credulity with which the story was greeted make it seem ludicrous at face value to suggest this attack was a work of fiction, a non-event, the weight of currently available evidence points overwhelmingly in that direction.

In many ways it scarcely matters, the more important question is who is behind these events? Who benefits and what are they hoping to achieve?

The militant groups against whom these crimes are attributed gain absolutely nothing. They make their destruction   imperative.

Turkey and it’s leader have recently crossed the West, their decision to participate in a Syrian peace process that included Russia and Iran and excluded the US will be seen as an unfriendly act in the US and give the US a motive to destabilise Turkey.

But given that the Istanbul police are handling this case it is hard to imagine any outsiders exerting sufficient influence over the police to pull this event off. It is possible but seems highly unlikely.

On the other hand the high number of foreign victims also seemingly makes it impossible for this deception to have been concocted locally.

Many credible analysts stated that the slaying of the Russian Ambassador in Ankara was a fraud, my understanding is that the assassination was a staged event but the killing of Andrei Karlov was real and perhaps this event will ultimately also turn out to have been authentic and there are signs of authenticity such as what seems to be a corpse laying in the Istanbul street and the start of the attack also appears somewhat authentic, possible spark hits aside.

However the tentative conclusion remains that this event was fiction and the authors were most likely elements within the Turkish state.

The broader implication of this hypothesis is that these synthetic events are simply the next level news management technique adopted by governments across the world in order to exert psychological control over the populace, promote heightened security measures and give governments almost unlimited power whilst the people the leadership wants to be perceived as enemies are seen that way by a terrified, compliant population without having to deal with grieving families demanding the truth and causing years of “trouble” for the perpetrators in the aftermath.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

The current state of affairs was described well by Truth Media Revolution during his New Years video, how should we celebrate the advent of another year of enslavement and mass deception?

I would suggest laughter but the scale of the deception and the evil of the goal and the means being used to achieve them can make it hard.

There is a new number attached to events, and in less than three weeks there will be a new US President, representing the hope at least of a lessening of tensions between the US and Russia if nothing else.

There is no end in sight to the wars plaguing the Middle East and North Africa, Yemen, Libya, Iraq and Syria have each descended into a state of semi-permanent war under the bizarre Western policy of using it’s imperial power to build new Somalia’s, new broken failed states wherever the chance could be seized.

(One of the more amusing moments of a decidedly unfunny Obama Presidency in late 2014 when he described Yemen and Somalia as success stories to be emulated!)

In Syria the destruction of the state has been thwarted, the nation lies in ruins but despite everything, including the fact that the armed opposition recently poisoned their water supply with diesel, the New Year was celebrated with gusto in the Syrian capital.

The Trajectory of Events.

The world appears to be changing for the better. The major media are losing their totalitarian ability to impose their manufactured reality upon the populace. This can only be a positive development and it is happening and the results of the UK Brexit referendum and the US election along with many other events make this clear. Or was it all a cunning plot? Was Brexit an inside job?

I think not but there are clearly contingency plans long in place in many sectors so it would be naive to dismiss the possibility out of hand.

It is also obvious that almost all of the replacements for the traditional major media are also controlled, there were contingency plans put in place in anticipation of the collapse of the major media and so while the big alternate media are less dishonest than the major media they are very partial in their willingness to tell the truth in certain key areas.

It is worth remembering that the totalitarian state will be built upon a fusion of the totalitarian aspects of both the right and left. After eight years people are sick to death of cultural Marxism and all the other leftist totalitarian nonsense but they are primed and ready for the other brand.

A few key events of fake terror could easily lead to demands for security leading to a more violent and intrusive state for all, with the “Muslim threat” merely a Trojan horse to justify totalitarian polices that will ultimately place the entire populace under something approaching martial law after a “State of Emergency” is declared.

After the Earthquake…the Meltdown.

As the Obama Presidency reaches it’s final weeks, the totalitarian message is still coming from the Democrat party and their allies. The pathetic story they have concocted to suggest Russian actions changed the result of the election without a jot of evidence makes it plain that these people have lost their minds.

It appears that there is a major factional battle going on within the US power structure, the faction in power are losing power and seem unwilling to let that happen. and therefore anyone who does not take the professional liars of the CIA at their word is supposedly a Russian agent and provocateur dealing in fake news.

US Takeover May Be Near

It is unclear if the faction opposing them are any better but it is hard to imagine them being worse.

The Rothschild dynasty vehicle the Economist has a record of predicting the future. If anyone is able to decipher the 2017 offering please share the details, it was beyond me.

One of the many wonderful things about being alive is that we have no idea what may come next. As for the coming year therefore I have no idea what may happen but there are realistic concerns about a crisis in the financial services industry that would have major ramifications throughout the world economy.

The elected US President seems to be intent on replacing Russia with China and Iran as new enemies, there is therefore the risk of a massive false flag terror attack on the US in furtherance of the destruction of these and other “enemies”.

The cycle that began with Bush junior coming to power is at the point of renewal.

Turkey will continue to be a focus of intrigue, the US has not finished with Erdogan by a long way, he is prominently placed on the “list” now whatever may have happened in the July coup.

The story has many missing pieces but the Pizzagate controversy is only beginning, there is a real story there. At this stage many important pieces are missing and there have been many excessive and irresponsible claims made but there is something absolutely explosive there and it is not going to go away regardless of the stunts they pull to try and make it disappear.

Happy New Year! All the best to all the inhabitants of this planet for there will be tribulation, that is the one certainty.
