Piers Morgan Whines Like A Baby As Trump Unfollows Him On Twitter – (“Styx”)

This update from Styx from about 3 hours ago @ 26-Apr-2020 13:19 UK time.

“Styx” was a reliable information source on the COVID-19 pandemic, right from the start. He was the only voice that I could find warning people of a possible pandemic back in January, when we still didn’t know much about it. He also uploads videos about politics, and other “niche” interests. If I had to take a guess of his political lean I’d say somewhere around 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.

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)”

“Hysterical Reaction To Covid19 And Public Support Of Lockdown Is Scary And Dangerous” – (New Culture Forum)

This update from Peter Hitchens/Peter Whittle, from The New Culture Forum (via YouTube, published 16-Apr-2020)

“Peter Hitchens: Hysterical reaction to Covid19 & public support of lockdown is scary & dangerous”

I stumbled across “The New Culture Forum”, whilst researching researching contemporary cultural orthodoxies. Their weekly show’s catch phrase is “So, what you’re saying is” in reference to Cathy Newman’s vicious politically motivated attack on Jordan Peterson, attempting a strawman strategy (multiple times) during an interview on Channel4, in 2018, which at last count had acquired 19 million views.

Initially I found their material a little dry, but never-the-less informative and worthwhile. Peter Whittle has a willingness to host important conversations around free-speech, and contemporary cultural doctrines

“Having the deeper discussions mainstream media won’t provide.”

 

“”So What You’re Saying Is…” (SWYSI) is our weekly YouTube talk show — we invite experts and leading figures from the political, cultural and academic worlds to discuss some of the most important issues facing Britain & the world today.”

 

“The host is Peter Whittle (@PRWhittle), Founder & Director of The New Culture Forum, a Westminster-based think tank that seeks to challenge the cultural orthodoxies dominant in the media, academia, and British culture / society at large.” – Source – The New Culture Forum, YouTube

Peter Whittle is also a member of the LGBT community and ex-UKIP member. My guess at his political lean would be “libertarian” or “classic liberal” (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.

“China Lied And People Died” – (Akkad Daily)

I stumbled across Sargon of Akkad aka Carl Benjamin, whilst researching Brexit. He’s a former UKIP party member and posts videos on several channels on YouTube, about current affairs, contemporary culture and politics.

Coronavirus And Blog Update 3

Having blogged 93 days straight now, through UK general election, Brexit and Coronavirus outbreak, it’s time for me to stop posting so much about Coronavirus. In the beginning I was doing my best to raise people’s awareness and warn of a possible problem aka “a pandemic”. My sources ended up being right, even though I’d prayed they wouldn’t be – and right a long time before the legacy media had any clue what was going on.

“What in the world is actually going on? Document reveals plans, step by step” (Dana Ashlie)

This video from Dan Ashlie on 17-Apr-2020.

LET ME MAKE THIS CRYSTAL CLEAR –

  1. I DON’T KNOW IF THIS IS FAKE NEWS, OR CONSPIRACY THEORY, OR WHETHER THERE’S TRUTH HERE – MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND
  2. I DON’T HAVE THE RESOURCES TO FACT CHECK, (NOR AM I A JOURNALIST, OR NEWS OUTLET) – IF YOU WANT THAT THEN PAY ME TO DO THAT FOR YOU, OTHERWISE DO YOUR OWN DUE DILIGENCE AND POST YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT THAT ON THE CREATOR’S YOUTUBE CHANNEL
  3. I’M NOT INTERESTED IN ORWELLIAN TYPES TELLING ME IT’S MY RESPONSIBILITY TO FACT CHECK OTHER’S WORK, OR THAT THE CREATOR’S WORK IS SOMEHOW MY RESPONSIBILITY VIA SOME CONVOLUTED MENTAL GYMNASTICS. IT’S NOT – I’M SIMPLY SHARING A LINK TO A MAINSTREAM PLATFORM. TAKE UP YOUR ORWELLIAN THOUGHT POLICING WITH THE CREATOR ON THE YOUTUBE PLATFORM COMMENTS SECTION.
  4. I BELIEVE IN FREE SPEECH, AND THAT INCLUDES A PERSON’S BASIC HUMAN RIGHT TO PUBLISH FREELY AND SAY FREELY WHATEVER THEY WANT (WITHIN OBVIOUS REASONABLE, SENSIBLE AND LEGAL LIMITS), WITHOUT FEAR OF PENALTY OR PUNISHMENT
  5. FREE SPEECH BENEFITS EVERYONE, TOTALITARIAN OR FASCIST CENSORSHIP HURTS EVERYONE.

I’m posting this is because I’ve long been aware that there are figures behind the scenes pulling the strings – globalist elites (aka oligarchs). These people are far more powerful than the front men and women who we see in public (like presidents and prime ministers). I’m personally interested to know more about the truth of who these people are and what their motives are – but they are secretive, actively stay out of the public eye and proactively avoid ANY kind of scrutiny, so information is scarce. Not many ordinary people seem to care that they’re shaping our lives, whilst lining their pockets, in hugely overreaching ways.

The poor and poorer just seem to continue to get poorer, and the rich just seem to get richer, is motivation enough for me, to learn more.

Update 21-Apr-2020 – YouTube video has been removed, but you can still watch it here :

Dana Ashlie describes herself as a citizen journalist. As mainstream media isn’t doing their job anymore, I’m happy to see people questioning what they are told, and talking about it. Dana is another wrong thinker, who has been been shadow banned by her corporate overlords Google. She also mentions the BBC (Bias Broadcasting Corporation) having some hand in one of her videos having been deleted, which doesn’t surprise me (Orwell is turning in his grave). I have no idea of Dana’s political lean.

Experts SHRED CNN Over Pushing Literal Chinese Communist Propaganda, TDS Is Going Critical

It’s Tim Pool/CNN double whammy day today. Seems CNN are up to their usual tricks, writing Chinese propaganda, then trying to quietly change it when they get caught, and as a bonus – Washington Post fake fact check. Tim Pool says it better than I, so …

This update from Tim Pool from about 1 hours ago @ 17-Apr-2020 19:17 UK time.

Tim pool provides commentary on politics and current affairs, mostly from USA. His channel was a bit difficult to find, as I think he may be shadow banned on YouTube – another “wrong thinker”, in the eyes of his globalist overlords – Google. If I had to take a guess of his political lean I’d say center-left (but I’m no expert, or journalist, or know him personally, so don’t take my word for it).

CNN Posts Fake News About Elon Musk, Musk Shows Up PROVES Its Fake News, Bring Receipts

Seem’s there’s some that still think the mainstream media are bastions of integrity, honour and truth. Sadly, this is not the case, and Tim Pool exposes CNN with another example of the mainstream media not fact checking their “journalism” – Trying to smear Elon Musk. Personally I don’t actually like Elon Musk, but that’s by the by – I don’t think he deserves to be smeared in the press, when he kept his word, and did his best, to provide ventilators for free, to save lives, during the pandemic.

The condescending attitude of CNN toward Elon Musk beggars belief, reminds me of the crap we get in UK from the BBC. Sanctimonious, holier than thou and completely out of touch with today’s reality.

Mon Homme (“My Man”) – Mistinguett (1938)

Thanks again to Seax for another suggestion – an opportunity to hear and appreciate some music I’d never heard before.

Some more experimenting with video editing and special effects. Well within the limits of the Windows 10 Video Editor. It just about does the job, but is a little flaky on my somewhat cheap laptop.

Mon Homme (“My Man”) by Mistinguett … From 1938. I believe there are many cuts of this track, this one I found most pleasing to my ears.

It’s in French, so sorry for everybody who doesn’t understand the lyrics – like I said before about the song which had been culturally appropriated by identity politicians – just enjoy the art, and stop taking yourself so seriously.

mistinguett_by_nadar, DONCHARISMA

BitChute Link – https://www.bitchute.com/video/UwBgBgAujPM0/

“Mon Homme” (French pronunciation: ​[mɔ.n‿ɔm]) is a popular song also known by its English translation, “My Man”. The song was originally composed by Maurice Yvain with French lyrics by Jacques-Charles (Jacques Mardochée Charles) and Albert Willemetz.

Mon Homme was copyrighted in France by Maurice Yvain, Albert Willemetz and Jacques-Charles (Jacques Mardochée Charles) in 1920 and was introduced to Parisian audiences in the revue “Paris qui Jazz” at the Casino de Paris. The song was performed by revue star Mistinguett and her stage partner American dancer Harry Pilcer.

“My Girl” is a soul music song recorded by the Temptations for the Gordy (Motown) record label. Written and produced by the Miracles members Smokey Robinson and Ronald White, the song became the Temptations’ first U.S. number-one single, and is today their signature song. Robinson’s inspiration for writing this song was his wife, Miracles member Claudette Rogers Robinson. The song was included on the Temptations 1965 album The Temptations Sing Smokey. In 2018, it was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or artistically significant.

My Girl – Otis Redding

This time I decided to do my own video. Originally a Temptations song – Maybe I’ll post their version later.

I made the video myself – One of my first attempts at video editing, using the built in software in Windows 10 “Video Editor” – it’s OK, but I did have some issues (don’t use too many effects on one clip). Often other videos aren’t that well made – So I thought I’d try my hand at making my own. You can be the judge of whether I made a good job or not !

I like the idea of using the creative tools that are to hand for free, rather than forking out cash that I don’t have. And simple is good these days.

RIP Otis Redding.

Candyman – Christina Aguilera

I recently posted Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy by Andrews Sisters – seems that that song was one of Christina’s inspirations when writing this song. Wikipedia lists Candyman as Pop – Jazz – Swing.

For me I like the upbeat sound, and the modern’ish take on vintage music. The lyrics are a bit trashy, but that only adds to the appeal IMO (sorry puritanists and snowflakes).

Candyman - Christina Aguilera, DON CHARISMA

“Candyman” is a song recorded by American singer Christina Aguilera for the second disc of her fifth studio album, Back to Basics (2006). She co-wrote the song with its producer Linda Perry. “Candyman” was planned to be released as the second single from Back to Basics; however, RCA Records decided to release “Hurt” instead. Subsequently, the track was released in February 2007 as the third single from the album.

Christina Aguilera co-wrote “Candyman” with its producer Linda Perry. Jim McMillen played the trombone, while Ray Herrmann and Glen Berger performed the saxophone, and Chris Tedesco played the trumpet. Perry also played the piano, mellotron, bass, and served as the musical director. Nathan Wetherington played the drums. According to Aguilera and Perry, the song was a tribute to The Andrews Sisters’ 1941 song “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”
