The Home Office Response To The Grooming Gang Petition is Atrocious – (Akkad Daily)

I had a conversation with Robert from “NOT IN MY WORLD” recently. He’s a lovely man, and a long time follower of the blog, and he says it’s difficult to get support for his cause. So, what can I do ? – I can help raise awareness, and help him get support. Help these kids who’re being abused.

I’ve held my tongue long enough on this topic which I’ve known about for some time, and haven’t said anything. But after speaking to Robert and seeing the STAGGERING statistics of millions of children continuing to be abused in the USA – I feel it’s my duty to raise awareness, of the 19000 English girls in multiple cities across the UK, as young as 12, who are being sexually abused, drugged, murdered, raped and gang raped by gangs of older men RIGHT NOW in the UK. This has been going on for decades, and covered up (even assisted) by the police, social services, local councils, the media and now at the top level, the civil service and home office.

The individual stories of the victims are heartbreaking. The whole thing is heartbreaking. Continue reading “The Home Office Response To The Grooming Gang Petition is Atrocious – (Akkad Daily)”

No Brexit Extension Beyond The 31st Of December! (UK)

This update from Jeff Taylor from about 1 hours ago @ 15-Apr-2020 19:23 UK time.

I came across Jeff Taylor’s channel whilst researching Brexit. Jeff provides news updates on (mostly UK) current affairs and politics. I found him well spoken, his previous work informative and accurate, and someone who cares about reporting factually, you know, real journalism. If I had to guess on his political lean, I’d say centrist/center-right (but I’m no expert, or journalist, or know him personally, so don’t take my word for it.)

Hope you are safe, and stays that way.

Cheers

Boris Johnson Says ‘It Could Have Gone Either Way’ As He Leaves Hospital (UK)

Thankfully Boris made it through, in-spite of the slew of DISGUSTING obviously partisan comments, on social media, even on my own blog. I debated outing the “troll”, but that’s probably what they wanted, attention via any means. I can’t imagine there was any rational argument or reason for wishing a sick person to die – so I just put it down to probable mental health issues. I’m no expert in that field, so I’ll leave it at that.

Anyway – Boris Johnson, seemingly in good spirits, from about 1 hour ago @ 12-Apr-2020 17:30 UK time.

Hope you are safe, and stays that way.

“More good news? Citizen reporters go & do what the media won’t!” (Dana Ashlie)

A friend who lives in the states sent me this, it’s from a few days ago. It’s counter to the current mainstream narrative, so, was an interesting watch for me – as I like to get the story from more than one perspective.

I’m not “on the ground” in US, don’t know Cuomo personally. etc, etc. – So, as for the truth, either way, I don’t know. As per my disclaimer, that’s for you to decide.

Hope you are safe, and stays that way.

THE NATURE OF TIME

 

THE NATURE OF TIME [by mariafokas]

How did we get to this dire point; not all at once, I suppose, but bit by bit, being too busy with life; drunk with regrets of the past and manipulated into worrying about the future. I don’t know what stand to take today. I tried writing this post so many times, stopped, and started, and stopped, and then back to the keyboard – and all I accomplished was to exhaust myself; you’d think it were a love letter, where I struggle to find the perfect words to make it work; while hiding the gore of bodies piling up without end as we speak –

Going back to the beginning of this virus, I started gathering information, believing it would help me and my loved ones. I watched and read everything about this novel virus. I even had an opinion about how governments of countries are handling it, and responding to it, and soon enough it began to take me hostage; it had become an addiction; collecting all the news this virus was creating. The stories I came across were endless; the mistakes and delays of the world health organization, the secret agendas of governments, Bill Gates and the Rockefellers involved in promoting it, conspiracy theories, a novel supposedly written in 1981 predicting it; and then I put my two-cents in too… what if just maybe, E.M. Forster predicted our restricted lives due to this virus, in his short story, The Machine Stops, (1909),  and just maybe, the Titanic had also been predicted in Morgan Robertson’s novella The Wreck of the Titan (1898). And was it the iceberg that took 1500 lives, or was it the delayed response, and ignorance to the iceberg? But, does any of this solve the problem?

I listened to people complaining about having to stay home. Could they not see the devastating alternative; images around the world of hospitals in chaos, doctors forced to decide who lives and who dies. Dead bodies in New York, stacked up in 18 wheeler-truck-fridges. A nurse in Italy, calling it the lonely flu; people dying all over the world without any hope for recovery; isolated without their loved ones to hold their hand in their final moment; to be reminded that THEY WERE LOVED! This virus has exposed the weaknesses in our system, our weakness to prepare, our weakness to prevent and to prevail – I think about our response to this virus; our delayed actions, and ignorance; the crack in our health system due to the governments we voted for; or didn’t even bother voting; too busy that day; giving away our greatest power of voice.

I listened to President Trump telling the American people that it was going to go away like a miracle, I heard Boris Johnson claiming that there was no need for restrictions; business as usual; we’d eventually become immune to it; Turkmenistan’s government claiming it doesn’t exist and, making it illegal to utter the word “coronavirus” or you’ll be arrested. The world health organization not only took too long to declare it a Pandemic, but they also informed us that there was no true evidence of human to human transmission, on January 14th – And China kept too quiet about the information that would have saved lives.

ceidefields-barrie-maguire, DON CHARISMA
“Ceidefields” by (c) Barrie Maguire

But I will not search for more to blame. I closed my door to the fear this virus has been spreading; the kind of fear that makes us weaker. I began to feel the stillness I was forced to bear and noticed the voice inside my head; words not mine, but nevertheless, coming from me; regurgitations of the outside world telling me, all the things I should believe and should be doing and should be wanting. And I stopped! I was not going to waste any more time –

These stay-at-home restrictions haven’t been taking time away from us; they’ve been giving it back to us. Having to live hour-to-hour, I realize that all I have in this world is that hour; that moment to moment that flows through me, and what I choose to do with that moment, determines everything. . . “God give me the wisdom to know the difference.” –

So, I wonder about the universal values of today – how do we make choices; on the basis of what? Yes, 95% of the information out there is a lie, so what is the truth? The truth might be that it will go away and that we will continue our lives regardless of how it has affected each and every one of us. We will gather the data and analyze the outcome – and there will be much talk and more blame but the crime will never be solved; and then soon after, we may forget.

Or we can decide to wrap our arms around the only thing that truly belongs to us – the present moment in time – not the past – not the future – only that precious moment; the one thing no one can take away from us; the most precious commodity we give away, in exchange for a deception; a promise for a “better” future waiting to be obtained. Aren’t the past and the future merely labels to define illusions; an anchor holding us back and, a promise of a holy grail at the end of the tunnel, in exchange for our lives?

Having to give up my freedom for a brief moment in time ended up saving me from an empty life filled with goals but no essence. This stillness made me aware of how numb I had become, and how I completely took my existence for granted; using myself to make ends meet, instead of experiencing life as a means to an end. So do I want to go back to that life, when the restrictions have been lifted; do we go back to the life this virus momentarily took away from us, or, when this is all over, do we make it better?

*URGENT PLEASE SHARE* – Full Video From Doctor In Madrid After His Request To Share (via Dr John Campbell)

*Please share this as far and wide as you can.*

He’s a doctor from Madrid, and a nurse speaking from Spain. It’s quite intense and distressing, so be forewarned before watching. They don’t have enough respirators and are being forced turning them off for people over 65. Family can’t be present, so these people are dying sedated ALONE.

They need your help to get this message out, *URGENTLY* so please reblog, share etc wherever you can, however you can. No need to give credit to me, just share the video, by whatever means you can.

As you can see above – YouTube deleted the video, it can still be watched at :

Blog Update And Coronavirus

I’ve been doing my best to pass on useful information regarding Coronavirus, as it’s the right thing to do (especially as fakestream media et al continues to lie). Also the situation is now obviously a pandemic, and a very serious situation.

I will try and keep up updates as and when I have time, but I do have a busy period ahead, that may prevent me from posting and answering comments etc, for a few weeks.

I have already shared many links for information sources, you can view all my Coronavirus posts here :

Posting Copyright Music On Your Blog Via YouTube

Recently I moved my old videos from WordPress to YouTube to free up storage space on my blog, for posting photography later.

I wasn’t quite sure how YouTube would deal with the fact that the music included in some of my videos is mainstream and copyright. I thought this was a big no no on YouTube.

As it turns out, I was wrong – it’s OK, you can post copyright music without getting banned etc from YouTube. Only thing that will happen is that the video will get marked as containing copyright music. The rub is that you won’t receive any monetization. *Nothing bad will happen.*

I thought about it for a while, and actually I don’t care, my videos would probably only clock up a few views anyway – so monetization isn’t something of any importance to me.

The other thing is videos can be set to unlisted, so they don’t appear in search. What that means is it’s just your blog viewers who can access them via the special link provided by YouTube (not shown in any search).

So copyright owner isn’t actually going to make any money from you posting the video, which is fine for me (of course if you actually wanted to give the money to the copyright owner, you can set the video as listed for search in YouTube)

So, could be a good way to share music you like with your followers – just a suggestion/tip. Might be helpful to someone. I will likely use the facility again later, as sometimes I can only find poor quality versions of pieces of music (on YouTube) I’d like to share, or I can’t find the particular mix/version that I have in my own music collection.

It’s simple to merge a single still photo with music (easiest way to do it). Or if you have video you can merge the video with music.

I think I used Photoshop to do mine. Also Avidemux I’ve used in the past – it’s free, and pretty easy to use. Plus plenty of others out there.

Feel free to leave a comment – what’s your favourite video editing software (preferably free and easy to use.) ?Especially like to hear what Linux users use for video editing, as I’m using Linux more and more these days.

Brexit Implications Beyond UK – George Soros’ Communist Master Plan

(For my Canadian friend et al)

Interesting what the globalist elites have planned for us and how they’ve been going about it :

I’ve found Dr Steve Turley’s presentations quite interesting and informative regarding US & world politics, he’s posting daily on YouTube. I think many people and countries are waking up to the importance of “nationalist populist” as Steve puts it.

Politically, most likely, I’m a centrist. So, if you’re commenting from far-left or far-right, then it’s about the same for me – I don’t subscribe to your ideologies. I find both communism and fascism, abhorrent in about equal measure. I thank whatever gods exist, every day, that I don’t have to live in a place like Nazi-Germany or Communist-Russia.

Thanks to my new followers, again, I don’t where you came from or why, I don’t think I did anything particularly special – but thanks anyway.

Brexit Bill Given Royal Ascent

Just a quick update, seems like I was wrong about the Brexit bill going back to the House of Lords (maybe it did briefly) – anyway, it’s been given Royal assent (ie signed off), so from what I understand, ball is now in Europe’s court (they’ll agree to it or not, probably they will). Here’s the video clip from the parliament.

Not sure what the SNP MP is banging on about, but mostly I think it’s probably some kind of scheme to delay or scuttle the Brexit bill, like we need that 8 days before we leave, after waiting nearly 4 years since 2016. Presumably the government doesn’t need the approval he’s complaining about anyway, otherwise they’d have got that before Royal assent.

At least that’s my layman’s understanding.

Brexit beats the House of Lords – Jeff Taylor

A friend of the blog from Canada, said that they were interested in what’s happening in UK regarding Brexit. When initially searching for news last year (because I was fed up with Google recommending The Guardian and The BBC), I found that it was difficult to obtain the facts. So, have had to hunt around, a hunt which paid off, I’m now able to get up-to-date news, which isn’t propaganda or fake news.

So, I’m sharing this, as it’s current and Jeff Taylor (who’s probably more a centrist than anything else), reports factually (which can easily be confirmed via other reputable sources, like the video feeds from Parliament and House of Lords).

Basically, the UK Brexit withdraw law was passed in the Parliament last year. The House of Lords then have a chance to add amendments – which they did this week. It was then passed back to Parliament, and voted on, and all of their amendments where denied/ voted down.

From what I understand it has to go back to House of Lords again. It’s likely they will this time approve it, and not add any amendments. One of the reasons being is that they’ve made themselves unpopular already in the past and there’s talk of reform of the House of Lords (keeping one’s job springs to mind). Do we really need 800 people being paid at top tier salaries in the House of Lords – isn’t that a bit of a waste of money ?

Then next is that the law needs Royal ascent, which basically mean the Queen signing off on it – which will just happen, basically.

And, then lastly it needs to be approved by the Europe. If they don’t, then it’s a “hard Brexit” on 31-Jan-2020, ie UK leaves without a trade deal, on WTO terms. Which, from what I’ve been hearing may not be a disaster (as the scare mongers have prophesied), might actually be a better outcome for UK. It’s actually my preferred outcome, get this shitshow over and done with, and get on with sorting out UK’s real problems. But – Dunno, not an expert here regarding WTO vs Europe/UK trade agreement, and I don’t know anyone who is either.

If Europe do approve it, then UK still “leaves” Europe on 31-Jan-2020, but then there’s a Brexit implementation period (basically UK and Europe negotiating a trade deal), with final FULL leave date of 31-Dec-2020.

Most likely Europe will begrudgingly approve the law. So most likely UK will “leave” Europe on 31-Jan-2020, into the Brexit implementation period.

Or there, or there abouts, in somewhat layman’s terms. Sorry I’m not a journalist, or news blog, just putting the word out there. More I enjoy creative writing and opinions, than the hard stuff like serious journalism.

Jeff produces videos every day, and if Brexit is of interest to you, then might be worth following his channel.

I don’t know his political leaning intimately, but those that lean to the left, or are pro-Europe, or are a communist, well, he may not fit your confirmation bias. So might not be your cup of tea. Just saying …

Anyway – For me I’m a centrist, so am able to digest traditional real journalism/facts, and Jeff fulfills my inquisitiveness into what’s actually happening in politics in UK, especially regarding Brexit.

So for that, Thanks Jeff, and also Thanks for filling the void made by BBC, ITV, Channel 4, The Guardian, The Independent and the other one, forget the name, sorry about that. Should also say – thanks UK fakestream media for becoming irrelevant, and making space for new entrants, truly in this case it seems that “diversity is our strength” 🙂 Perhaps soon now I can stop paying for (on pain of a criminal record) a BBC service I don’t use, like or want, or think is relevant anymore.

Lastly, thanks to the 1000 or so new followers, over past couple of days – I don’t know where you came from (or why), but a heart felt welcome anyway. I don’t know if I can live up to your expectations, only time will tell that. A lot of the time I do photography, sometimes I write. A lot of the time I don’t blog at all.

Thousands Of Employers Coming To UK After Brexit

I Imagine those who would wish to scare us, like to report all of the bad news about what’s happening in UK regarding business and jobs, and etc – this disaster and that problem. Whilst it’s important to let people know about news that may effect them. It’s manipulative just to report on things that have negative impact, especially when there’s a partisan motivation behind it. There’s a name for that “propaganda”, which isn’t journalism, and some of the outlets have upped their game to the next notch of purely producing purely “partisan rhetoric”

For past-me, I just went to the news to find out the facts, keep myself abreast of current affairs. These days mainstream media continuously seems to be trying to brainwash me, in ways I know are fundamentally harmful – divisive, manipulative, exaggerated and often not even factual.

It’s why, these days I look around for my news sources, and have discarded outlets who (perhaps) were once journalist, the likes of The Gaurdian, BBC and CNN, it’s long list. For the time being, real news seems to have scattered and involves a little effort to find, as it’s been obfuscated by those who wish us to be brainwashed. It’s actually quite refreshing, in a way, as I’ve not got access to a wide range of voices and can make up my own mind.

Overall I think there’s a real opportunity out there for new media outlets to become established, and also things like indie-TV and Cinema – Exciting times when mainstream media and Hollywood are rotten to the core, and are no longer serving their intended purposes – massive opportunities there for those who’re riding the next wave.

Anyway, enough of me sounding off – some POSITIVE post-Brexit news – from Reuters :

“A thousand EU financial firms plan to open UK offices after Brexit”

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-britain-eu-banks/a-thousand-eu-financial-firms-plan-to-open-uk-offices-after-brexit-idUSKBN1ZJ00D

Which I was made aware of by Jeff Taylor :

For those who like summaries, rather than reading and watching :

LONDON (Reuters) – More than a thousand banks, asset managers, payments companies and insurers in the European Union plan to open offices in post-Brexit Britain so they can continue serving UK clients, regulatory consultancy Bovill said on Monday.

This would make sense to me that smart money would have been holding off on investing in UK during times of uncertainty. As Brexit is starting to draw to a close, I hope we’ll see this actually happening and prosperity actually returning to UK.

Even though I was originally pro-remain regarding Brexit, I’m looking into 2020 with optimistic outlook – I think the UK can become great again.

Cheers
