Christopher STORY  born in 1938 died peacefully at home on 14-July-2010 after a short illness.

His family are grateful for their privacy at this sad time. 

I am particularly distressed to hear this sad news as Christopher and I have been in regular contact over almost 20 years and would often spend over an hour AND MORE on the phone as we shared certain contacts and information and had common interests – I will miss those conversations and his councel on many issues.

Christopher’s contacts with Chepstow go back to his childhood as his grandparents lived, in a house I knew, on the hill overlooking the town.

My thoughts are with his wife and daughters at this difficult time.

I understand  aspects of his business and publishing will continue – there may be a brief delay in dispatch of order from: World Reports Limited • Edward Harle Limited • Global Analysis Limited

You may wish to know Christopher a little better and may find the interview of him regarding his views on The Perestroika Deception in 1995 of interest, which you will find in two parts at CLICK HERE – Christopher was not just a fund of information but a towering intellect we will ALL miss, particularly those of us who had the opportunity to know this true gentleman who so diffidently met with fools as he kept his councel, never wishing to offend.

A gentleman to his fingertips does not gainsay his willingness to back his decisions and stand his ground with resolution and courage. A thinker, a global finance expert who knew the deals that brokered the money of our planet – a heavy burden which made powerful enemies as he would tollerate no corruption nor suffer fools in high places.

Christopher was an author, publisher and distributor of a host of periodicals and books of prodigious specialisation.

Where he found his energy I doubt any of us will ever know just as it is probable his wife and daughters will never realise just how much he treasured and admired them. He always spoke of them and it was always with pride and passion whenever I spoke with him.

We will miss Christopher Story, his knowledge, which is unreplaceable and praise be so much was committed to paper but as a friend that would never be salvageable merely on paper.

Lee and I will remember Christopher with respect and fondness as a friend, though distant.

Tribute to Christopher Story

Tribute to Christopher Story

By Ashley Mote

Only a day or so ago I finally heard that my distinguished friend Christopher Story died on 14th July 2010 (Bastille Day – the symbolism of which would not have been lost on him). He apparently suffered liver failure.

He had been complaining of not feeling well for some months, had recently skipped a trip to the USA and had lost a good deal of weight since Christmas. It is entirely possible his death was from natural causes.

The world is a much poorer place for his passing. I mourn his loss as I would mourn the loss of a brother. He was the staunchest champion of all that was honest and upright in life, a courageous investigative journalist, an indefatigable writer, an audacious publisher, and a powerful intellect.

I have lost a true friend whose company and integrity I valued beyond words. His loss is truly devastating.

Over the last decade or so, ever since I became actively involved in European politics, I have met and had dealings with an extraordinary number of extraordinary people. To be frank, some I loathed.

But the company of many others was hugely stimulating, greatly valued, and much enjoyed. Christopher Story was right at the top of that list.

I first met Christopher at a Bruges Group meeting in the days when they were held on the top floor of a cramped London pub. We immediately sensed a mutual liking for each other and met regular from that time on. We had been due to meet for lunch a few days hence.

Far more important than our meetings, however, was the rapid development of our continuous exchange of information by emails, telephone and snail mail – which we quickly found to be by far the safest means of communication. Both of us knew our lines were tapped. Sometimes we deliberately traded information just to let whoever was listening know what we knew! Or to mislead…!

Christopher Story had the energy of a man half his age. He regularly wrote more words in a day than I might write in a week or more. His range of knowledge and experience of the global financial markets and – much more importantly – the power broking that went on behind it, was utterly breathtaking at times. His regular newsletters – International Currency Review, Economic Intelligence Review, Global Analyst, Soviet Analyst, Arab-Asian Affairs, Eastern Europe Analyst, World Reports, and several other occasional titles – to say nothing of his many books based of these newsletters, might have been the work of ten men.

But Christopher researched, wrote, designed, printed and distributed every one of them himself, with the aid of a handful of others whom he knew could be trusted. He was a one-man, self-appointed, self-financing, international investigation agency which specialised in researching the deployment and accountability of public money, the manipulation of currencies, and power laundering by the world’s ruling elites.

This work took him into some of the most dangerous places on earth – not just geographically, but intellectually as well. As a result he made many powerful enemies. They all knew that when he found a racketeering spade, whoever it was, he would call him a bloody shovel, and publish that news to the whole world – or at least to those willing to listen. For most of the world’s media, his conclusions and commentaries were far too hot for them to handle – hence the self-publication.

Much of Christopher’s best investigative work was done in the USA, where he had highly valued internal sources of information within the Federal Reserve Bank, the CIA, and within the financial and political communities as a whole. At times, he became personally and dangerously embroiled in some of the financial trails he was following, on occasion at his consideration personal risk. He was a truly brave man.

The common thread running through all Christopher Story did could be encapsulated in a single phrase – the misuse of power! Indeed it was he who sparked one of my own more memorable epithets – ‘those attracted to power are the least suitable to wield it’.

One of my earliest meetings with Christopher was in Oxford, near his home, when he took the greatest pleasure in showing me around his old college. He was immensely proud of having graduated at Oxford University, and rightly so. It had instilled or reinforced that innate and shining honesty that distinguished all he did.

In later years we more usually met in Brussels, when he came to visit the European Parliament for a day or two. Often these trips were carefully timed to coincide with meetings of the Budget Control Committee, on which I had a seat, and when I planned to raise issues briefed by him beforehand. Sometimes he admitted later to having the greatest difficulty sitting at the back, in the public gallery, trying hard to suppress his urge to intervene.

Perhaps the best and by far the most famous question I ever raised in the European Parliament was based entirely on a briefing by Christopher Story. It concerned the Global Security Fund. Like all speeches in a plenary session it was recorded on videotape and can now be found on literally scores of websites around the world. Even today, almost five years later, new postings of that one-minute speech are regularly uncovered by the Google search-engine.

This was what I said :

“Mr President, I wish to draw your attention to the Global Security Fund, set up in the early 1990s under the auspices of Jacob Rothschild. This is a Brussels-based fund and it is no ordinary fund: it does not trade, it is not listed and it has a totally different purpose. It is being used for geopolitical engineering purposes, apparently under the guidance of the intelligence services. I have previously asked about the alleged involvement of the European Union’s own intelligence resources in the management of slush funds in offshore accounts, and I still await a reply. To that question I now add another: what are the European Union’s connections to the Global Security Fund and what relationship does it have with European Union institutions?”

At the time, with the House almost empty as usual, I got no reply. Later I asked a near-identical written question, the answer to which understandably told us precisely nothing. After all, how could Brussels’ elite bureaucrats admit that they had a hand in a gigantic illegal trust fund? It was estimated by undercover overseas financial investigators at 65 trillion dollars, we knew it had been set-up for ‘Illuminati rainy days’ and when needed in a crunch situation for bribery, state-inspired black operations and activities to divert attention from the world’s banking and political mafia.

Christopher’s original briefing also told me that, “while the fund is cloaked in secrecy” it was made possible by the US Federal Reserve banking system. However I decided, in the context of the EU, not to follow up that potential second line of attack.

No wonder there is still so much interest in that original question. It was possibly the first occasion anyone had mentioned the existence of the Global Security Fund in any public arena, anywhere.

It would be an entirely appropriate and well-deserved tribute to Christopher Story’s life’s work if, one day, the truth finally emerges about the Global Security Fund and those responsible for the monumental misuse of public funds are finally exposed and brought to book.

Meanwhile, I shall continue to mourn the loss of a true friend, and there no greater tribute I can pay Christopher Story than describing him thus.

(PS: Two requests and a question:

If anyone knows how to communicate this tribute to any of Christopher Story’s family, I would be most grateful. I have been unable to make contact since the news of his passing broke.

Also, I would also be glad to know about any memorial service planned in his honour.

Question : What, if anything, is to be done Christopher’s massive and priceless collection of private papers? Whilst this is understandably not the right time to focus on the question, I feel I must at least raise it in the wider public interest.)

Christopher’s entry in Wiki CLICK HERE

Christopher Edward Harle Story FRSA (1938 – 14 July 2010)

Christopher was a British writer, publisher and government adviser specialising in intelligence and economic affairs, who is best known for his collaboration with KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn on the 1995 book The Perestroika Deception. Christopher Story, the son of Colonel Henry Harle Story MC of the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles).

Christopher was educated at Eton College and Christ Church, Oxford, and then worked as an industrial writer in Canada.

In 1963, he formed his own publishing company specialising in intelligence and founded World Reports Limited in 1963.

Since 1970, he has edited and published International Currency Review, which includes the World Bank, the Federal Reserve, and the Bank of England amongst its subscribers.

He became an economic adviser to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and a year after her resignation he purchased the respected Soviet Analyst, whose previous editors include Robert Conquest and Tibor Szamuely, due to his continued scepticism about Mikhail Gorbachev, perestroika and the official version of events in the Soviet Union.

In May 1992, he was approached by KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn, who supported Story’s analysis in Soviet Analyst, and handed over to Story his memoranda to the CIA, which Story edited and published as The Perestroika Deception in 1995.

In 2002, Story published The European Union Collective, which applied Story’s analysis to the European Union.

He is also critical of the German intelligence establishment, pointing out its Nazi origins.

In the book, he equates the current situation in Europe to the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact before World War II.

He describes both world wars as “the two Illuminati Wars.”

He also claims that former British Prime Minister Edward Heath was “recruited by the Nazis before the war” and was an agent of the “the secret Nazi strategic continuum since exposed as the Deutsche Verteidigungs Dienst (DVD), Dachau.”

Other historical parallels, according to Christopher Story, include:

• 9/11 = the Reichstag Fire;

• What he describes as the unprovoked invasion of Iraq (a bank raid) = Hitler’s invasion of Czechoslovakia;

• What he describes as the US Generals’ feckless inactivity in the face of this madness = the ambivalence of General Alfred Jodl and the German General Staff;

• The threat to attack Iran = Hitler’s intended aggression against Poland.

Story was most recently writing a book on the Wanta crisis. (See Leo Wanta). Originally a staunch supporter of the controversial CIA operative, Story started in 2008 to expose Leo/Lee Emil Wanta as a consummate professional deceiver in a series of articles posted on his website

 You will note in Ashley Mote’s tribute to his colleague he used the curious wording ‘It is entirely likely that his death was due to natural causes’ this begs the question ‘it is entirely likely that Christopher’s death was NOT due to natural causes’, an entirely plausible hypothesis so please bear with me, and having like many of us lost a friend and mentor, permit me to hypothesise.

You may believe it lacks good taste to hypothesise on the demise of a friend but may I then draw your attention to the beliefs of Diogenes relative to the over due reverence of a body once its incumbent had no further use of it! It is entirely apposite that we might speculate upon his demise for it was to just such speculation that Christopher himself so dedicated his life – whether the slaughter of a currency or a demise of liberty, whether the diminution of democracy or the betrayay of political trust.

Christopher was a man of principle, ethics, loyalty and above all integrity and so in integrity to his principles and integrity speculation is entirely apposite.

Consider Christopher’s chosen swimming pool and the size of some of the sharks therein – of course it is entirely possible that his demise was not entirely without suspicion and the probability that he had made enemies both willing and able to administer the correct toxins is entirely probable, not just possible.

Let us start with a few strange incidents before fleshing out the bare bones of speculation.

We should remember that as far as any of us knew or had reason to believe Christopher was fundamentally fit and at 72 with no known malladies in todays Britain an expectation of another 10 years was entirely reasonable with his social background giving him better than normal prospects – yet on his return from his last American ‘sortie’ he complained of being unwell – and it is a little late to emulate Spike Milligan and demand a grave stone inscribed:

‘I Told You I Wasn’t Well’

Clearly that answers no questions!

This question is typical of a number I have received and represents something I had noticed:

Hi Greg – Do you know what happened – the previous but withdrawn letter before his announced death said he had been inflicted with an horrible disease – will World Reports continue or has it been subverted?

The answer is of course strictly NO, however I and others had noticed his dirth of postings and his failure to returne calls, which was unlike him as I had not received the last few expected calls.

I too noticed the message to which my quoted correspondent alludes but to my shame I did not immediately dive to the phone and then there was silence!

It was not until last Thursday that I heard the rumour Christopher had died – I merely thought that was uncharacteristically deep cover even for Christopher – until yet another call bringing to my attention the VERY brief announcement on his web site.

Is it too fancifull to believe that Christopher Story was assasinated – I would opine NOT. I can not claim KNOWLEDGE nor FACT, but much of Christopher’s work was based upon ‘floating an idea’ with a view to see what ripples and splashes might be noted!

Gossip in the intel. world would have us believe that 41 authorised the sanction and CIA sources lay ultimate blame at the door of the DVD.

That Bush 41 is widely attributed then it seems clear that Obama is unlikely to have clean hands as we must remember the sourcing of much of his funding has been through high level ‘deals’ with the utterly amoral money men, such as George Soros who many will be aware has shorted a number of today’s ‘difficult’ currencies. It is always usefull to have a ruthless and unscrupulous Billionaire on side!

It was men such as these that Christopher Story with his ethical upbringing, which interestingly distanced him from many of his contempories at Eton and Christ Church, a moral and intellectual honesty which made Christopher such a damned fine investigative journalist and financial analyst of international stature, but the storm always takes the tall trees – it was also what made him such fine conversation over many happy hours testing theories be they on Edward Heath’s Nazi conversion before the war of which he was convinced, or financing of The Panama Canal, whether on the subject of The Moral Majority and its metamorphosis as a Communist construct, which incidentally operates out of Oxfour with its clandestine agenda of betrayal of these United Kingdoms through Fabianism, The Rowntree Trust, Free Masons,The Tavistock Institute, Alpha Course and more.

Then we have the New World Order, The Tri Lateral Commission, Skull & Bones, Council on Foreign relations, Bilderbergers, Davos, IMF, The Frankfurt School,The Cathars, The Knights of Malta.

Then of course there is The Fed., Chase, Lehman and many another two bit scheister seizing his chance as a professional gambler in a pin stripe suit with delusions of grandure as he stuffs his pockets in return for no service rendered whether scum like Blair, as they make their Millions or the Rumsfeld, Cheyney Bush triumvirate that seemingly can ground a Pan Am passenger plane carrying evidence gathered against them.

One could muse for many hours as to whose specific apple cart Christopher had, in his honesty, caused sufficient risk to make his absence more convenient – might it have been The Trilats who proffered sanction with Francis Maude & o’Donnall – the pieces of the jigsaw are falling into place but it would be foolish to leave out The Per5estroika connection with his finger not just keeping the temperature in every pot Christopher also from time to time waggled his fingers to stir the pot!

Might Mandelson, Presscot, Straw and the communist core of New Labour have had a hand.

Even now we note Intel. are scurrying like cockroaches reviewing COMINT to seek to verify who is in the loop.
Read Christopher’s revelations with care and you will note they threatened the very roots of The Franco German EUro, as he got inexorably closer to the stolen funds used to underpin it, and the German leveraged MTN trading run back to back to avoid audit trails in being off lines of credit.
Considering just how dedicated are our political betrayers to The EUro with Presscot, Blair, Brown, Straw and minions like Darling having shown their willingness to buy into the concept with every last cent of OUR money and now the boy Dave and the gullible wee Osborne jumping through every hoop that Maude and Clarke provide.

That maintaining the EUro is a cause for murders, wars and assasinations is beyond doubt and well within the remit.

We have witnessed a war in Iraq for many years with no purpose but to ensure supremacy of the US Dollar as the global reserve currency of choice – now all these years later Britain has no exit or survival strategy for when the EU collapses but worse still we have been made the target of terrorists by the crass and duplicitous behaviour of our political elite, exacerbated by their aiding of the obscenities of Zionism.

The DVD may well have asked for Christopher’s ‘departure’, the planning may well have coincided with the plans for the destruction of democracy and the grab for power at any price of the boy Dave and The Cleggerons! Could it have been a prerequisite of so corrupt a deal passing muster under the terms of the unutterably corrupt Franco German dictatorship in EUrope which is so bereft of democratic principles and dependent on over paid puppets fronting for the smoke and mirrors.
We must never loose sight of the irrefutable fact that not only had Christopher an uncanny knack of 20/20 vision in smoke but A1 perception amongst the mirrors – a man much feared by the dishonest and the corrupt who made many enemies and perhaps we should be gratefull that they would seem to have achieved their aim peacably unlike Pan Am 103 or Korean Airways KAL007 perportedly over Sakhalin island but more likely as it had overflown Simushir on the Kurul Ridge at the edge of the Sea of Okhotsk with the top secred submarine base in the flooded calderra!
Out of the direct loop it is hard to take more than a view as for an opinion access to the raw data stream would be needed and that was where Christopher had built his world expertise in the torrent, flow, ebb and sunami of the data stream! Not a place to make friends one can trust as there is every reason to believe was his last lesson to us!

Intel. will not only take a view but form an opinion and if they apply the Hydrich principle we may see further ‘difficulties’ and ‘drownings’ of those swimming in the data stream amongst the sharks and Puffer Fish.

Interestingly, despite the evidence, febrile as it is, neither the police of coroner in Buckinghamshire had taken an interest but they have now been advised of the possibilities and probabilities and we hope will carry out their duty – fortunately it was not a cremation.
Liver damage is an outcome of both chemical and biological toxins, as are some nerve agents. There is every reason to believe the chatter in Intel that Christopher Story was just one moth that had flown too close to the flame and in The Zen of black flames an enemy too many is easy to find particularly when crossing a DVD favoured project at a time of instability.
 No part of Obama’s strange route to power would directly be a cause for such an assassination but be minded of the recent strange loan of $2B to a Brazilian off shore drilling oil interest – one wonders why when one discovers they are supplying the entire output on contract to China, one is forced to ponder what is the net sum gain for the citizens of America who have so generously had their money donated but it is then one discovers the smoke and mirrors conceal the real beneficiary and why are we not surprised to find it is one George Soros – it was just such power plays that Christopher made a habit of exposing.

Big exposures make big enemies!

The Funds transfer Christopher had done so much work on and exposed has seemingly been blocked by Bush 41 and Obama with their interests and team. Clearly there were efforts made by 41’s players over many years to discredit Christopher but none truelly succeeded though in hind sight his Erie PA contact and a source in Washington could well have been black ops with a dubious feed!

That Christopher, a towering intellect and a pivotal figure in global finance has merely slid out of life with no fanfare seems all too Diogenistic and in view of the ‘chatter’ that no over reassurance was offered may give grounds for more rigorous toxicology and surely a man of this stature is deserving of greater gratitude of our Country whom he spent so many hours seeking to preserve, be that at the level of Margaret Thatcher’s advisers or seeking to provide fact not fantasy to conspiracy theorists – Christopher was at ease with both audiences for as Kipling said:

‘IF you can walk with Kings
Nor loose the common touch
You’ll be a man my son.’

Somewhat impertinent of me when he was both older and hugely wiser than I will ever be!

This is a death, whether of natural causes or as a matter of someone’s version of State Security, a death which clearly requires considerably more attention than it has received to date.

IF it were to be established this was a State execution the enormity of what lies behind it must reasonably be seen as to vie, in importance, with that of Lincoln, Arch Duke Ferdinand, JFK, Tsar Alexander or similar as it is of global significance as it may provide the cover for the secretion of the Wanta funds and the missing Taiwanese money of Chiang Kai-Shek, from the Nankin Dynasty formerly controlled by Dr. Sun Yat-Sen and so promptly deposited in the West to avoid invasion by Mau Tse Dung.

It is such $Trillions that Christopher tracked exposing those who sought to steal it.

This is a man who deserves reinterment with State honours at his alma mater Christ Church, or at least a well publicised memorial service.

Astonishingly Christopher was for all his intellect a very humble and self efacing man nervous in a crowd and near terrified of a public platform – a devout Christian sufficiently convinced that he had absolutely no insecure need to either boast of it or seek to convince others. 
Due to my own experiences we had spoken of death and although he did not welcome its prospects he had neither cause nor did he fear it. He would not have gone easy into that long good night for whenever it arrived Christopher would have had an unfinished project!

In reitterating my earlier and immediate sentiments not only of loss in selfish terms but loss to my Country and loss to the body of intellect I do indeed offer my unreserved condollences to his wife, daughters and family at large.
Yet because of Christopher’s importance to us all I am forced to echo Ashley Mote’s sentiments of hope that his work will continue and his archive be secured.
Would that I could afford all his books! (Would that I could understand half of them!!).

on the very day – just as I had finished reading of the lies of All Gore – well a selection of them as there are many more as Tipper Gore will attest, or should I say has, having just divorced the odious man – perhaps he and Paschauri have skipped off into an Indian summer together to count their carbon credits – notably the biggest confidence trick in the history of man!

For which you will remember they jointly won a Nobel Prize, when heretofore such events have been recorded in The Guinness Book of Records.

Once you have read the article in The Washington Post at CLICK HERE

You will I believe enjoy a letter sent by an old friend to The CEO of his Council:

Subject: Climate Change Rubbish from East Hants

26 July 2010
Climate Change Rubbish from East Hants
My district council (East Hampshire) has just filled its latest quarterly magazine with the most ridiculous, ill-judged scare stories about so-called ‘climate change’. Utterly irresponsible.
I wrote to the editor and he has refused to publish my response. So today I sent the Chief Executive of the Council the following letter.
If anyone feels like writing as well, please be my guest.
This is what I told him:
Sandy Hopkins Esq Chief Executive Officer East Hants District Council Penns Place Petersfield Hampshire GU31 4EX
In the latest issue of the East Hants District Council magazine your editor Steve Bradley published a great many seriously inaccurate allegations about so-called ‘climate change’ and subsequently refused to publish my response on the spurious grounds that it was too long.
I must insist that you set the record straight. What follows is the full text, every word of which can be supported either by strictly relevant scientific evidence, or by information already on the public record.
CO2 is not a pollutant. It is an essential plant food. It underpins all life on earth. Plants produce the oxygen which all animal life
(including us) needs to survive. Why else do growers pump pure CO2 into their greenhouses if it is not to increase production?
Climate change enthusiasts should consider the facts:
The largest gas in the earth’s atmosphere by far is water vapour. CO2 is a minor component of the earth’s atmosphere, at barely one-third of one percent.
Levels of CO2 today are amongst the lowest they have been in the known history of this planet. CO2 is absorbed naturally by water, the oceans, soil and all plant life. It is odourless, tasteless and non-toxic.
The largest and most significant source of CO2 is underwater volcanic eruptions. Just one of the larger submarine volcanoes can, when active, emit more CO2 in a few days than all human activity might generate in a year. There are numerous eruptions on the seabed every year, almost none of which are ever noticed or reported outside the scientific community.
Any impact of a higher level of CO2, such as it might be, is logarithmic, not arithmetic. In other words, the higher the figure the less the effect. Double today’s CO2 level, and no-one would notice any difference.
The warmest year since modern records began was 1934. Temperatures rose from 1860 to 1875, cooled until 1890, rose to 1903, cooled to
1918, rose to 1941, cooled to 1976, rose to 1998 and have cooled since then. So 1998 was not the warmest ever, just the most recent peak. The fastest change in average temperature was between 1918 and 1941, and it was significantly faster than the increase which peaked in 1998.
Ice-core research has demonstrated that any increase in average temperature levels lag any increase in CO2 levels by some 500 to 600 years. So, even if there were a slow, long-term connection, there is no practical purpose in attempting to change CO2 levels with a view to controlling average global temperatures. The proposition is scientifically absurd.
Much of the above comes from a recent book by Professor Ian Plimer, Heaven and Earth. Professor Plimer is a geologist, and the head of the environmental sciences department at the University of Adelaide. He is also visiting professor of earth sciences at Melbourne University. His book includes over 2000 individually annotated sources of data and conclusions drawn from academic papers published all over the world by scientists directly involved in the study of earth sciences.
Plimer also points out that the Minoan, Roman and Medieval Warmings were all warmer than our current levels of average temperature. CO2 levels were also higher. However, during at least one Ice Age CO2 levels were 15 times higher than today, which undermines the proposition that global warming and levels of CO2 are directly linked.
In the Cambrian period some 500 million years ago, CO2 levels were up to 20 times higher than today, and temperatures were some seven degrees centigrade higher as well. There was no greenhouse gas catastrophe. On the contrary, plant life evolved rapidly.
During the period when dinosaurs roamed the earth CO2 levels were three times those of today. Plant life was abundant, which is thought to be one of the reasons why dinosaurs thrived for so long.
Even the UK’s own Met Office (despite its name, much given to unscientific climate scare stories) has recently admitted that global average temperatures have fallen since 1998. And this has happened when there has been a significant increase in the burning of coal, oil and gas across the globe. Some estimates put the increase over the last ten years at 25% or thereabouts.
There is a huge difference between looking after our environment and minimising pollution, and setting out on a crusade to “justify” more government control and taxation. And that, I believe, is what our ruling elite are up to. CO2 is merely their latest bogeyman.
Worse, they are now hoisted by their own petard as a result of the development of an international market in carbon trading. Many public and private pension funds, including the BBC pension fund, have open positions in this market, which makes the recognition of scientific reality a potential financial disaster for fund managers, institutions and governments.
Hence the desperate need to convince themselves of a threat from man-made CO2. Those of us relying merely on the facts can see that the King has no clothes on!
Ashley Mote
(One of the many local tax-payers paying your salary, and that of Mr Bradley.)

Another old friend David Davis has taken a more laid back approach to the rubbish on his facebook!

thinks about “re-cycling”.

Here’s what I told the Daily Mail just now, which they won’t print….

“The entire contents of your dustbin (remember those?) can be
burnt. This is what fire is for.

You just burn it. In your yard.

This returns:
immensely-valuable carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, where it has belonged for
the past 4 billion years, rightly, and is used by plants right away, for
photosynthesis. The more photosynthesis, the more food for the world, and the
more animals and the more life, and the more coal in 300 million years’ time.

The place for a gas is in among other gases. Global warming is good. Geddit

The rest of it, what we call “ASH”, goes on the
garden. It promotes plant growth. That’s what it’s for. You just spread it
about and dig it in.

The scary-metal-bits, and stuff you’ve taken from dismantled turbo-alternators but you don’t want and can’t use, and shapeless lumps of molten glass and stuff like that, you just give it all to
“The Dustmen”. They take it away. They can recycle it if the
GreenGestapo say so, but it’s better to send it to Nigeria.
Which is the same destiny anyway.”

Were we all to make a concerted effort to step back from all this NWO inspired anthropomorphic global warming bunkum and all the convincing utter nonsense the liars have so glibbly constructed for fools, the gullible and George Monbiott and the Guardian readers who seem evenly split between fools and gullible – we might by building a series of nuclear power stations revivify our industrial/scientific base and start to claw back the otherwise insurmountable debt of some £13 Trillion which our last communist Government fronted by New Labour on behalf of foreign and alien interests stitched us into.

No more costly, damaging and dangerous windmills, coasts free of wave power generated money making machines for a global elite of crooks – back to the real world.

#G307* – When Will Kate & Gerry McCANN BE ARRESTED For Their Daughter’s Death?

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 28/07/2010

#G307* – When Will Kate & Gerry McCANN BE ARRESTED
For Their Daughter’s Death?

I was surprised to hear that Carter Ruck who will clearly do anything for money are once again trying to suppress the truth about this absolutely classic example of reckless endangerment which almost deffinitely led to the death of Madelaine McCann.

Surely the public have the right to publish the questions below which are very much in the public domain.

I make no claim as to who killed Madelaine McCann or that she was killed, as such, in fact I do not claim to know she is dead – but as many will remember, without sound provenance and with exactly the same claimed evidence Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi and Lamin Khalifah Fhimah were charged with the bombing of Pan Am 103 on 21-Dec-1988 – the one was found guilty and the other not guilty and released based upon the corrupting influence of Lord Cullen whose summing up – based upon the same evidence stated that in his opinion and on the balance of possibilities it is entirely probable that Al Megrahi was guilty of the crime!

Using the same Justice Kate & Gerry McCann should currently be serving life sentences in my opinion.

I must admit I would not wish to see them tried in any court as corrupt as those Lord Cullen has previously presided over where he has arbitrarily hidden evidence and embargoed documents for as much as 100 years without lawfull reason or legal right.

I appreciate Kate & Gerry McCann are well trained oiks and both are qualified as Doctors but who would want either of these creepy people who seem to have made a small fortune out of what can only possibly be seen as the crime of reckless endangerment. I personally believe that Carter Ruck are utterly irresponsible to be making efforts to suppress the truth and shelter these two criminals.

Carter Ruck act to intimidate people in their own version of bullying and gratuitous harrassment by seeking to intimidate people into control of free speech – I believe Kate & Gerry McCann are directly responsible for the probable death of their Daughter Madeleinne and that Carter Ruck are threatening, abusing and harrassing individuals for placing an audio version of the questions below on YouTube is a huge breach of Carter Ruck’s duty, privilege and integrity bringing the law into disrepute.

It is utterly irrefutable that Kate & Gerry McCann are responsible for the death of their daughter by way of reckless endangerment – there is incontovertible evidence and they are unable to refute the FACT that they did leave 3 minor children without supervision or care in an appartment whilst they, together with friends went out carousing for their own gratification and indulgence.

That the children were recklessly endangered is not only irrefutable but proven by the very fact their eldest daughter whilst abandoned died or alternatively but in my humble opinion most unlikely, was abducted.

Why has this child not had the benefit of protection under common Justice? Why have Kate & Gerry not been arrested and charged?

One is forced to ask has their status and their immediate quick witted use of publicity spared them the justice they deserve, could it be that had their names been Tracey and Damien they would have been marched off to encaceration in minutes from a sink estate?

Are there TWO laws operative in Britain, Portugal and the corrupt EU?

One law for those who have and one law for those who do not!

The 48 questions Kate McCann wouldn’t answer!

– and the one she did

By Daily Mail Reporter

5th August 2008
During eleven hours of interrogation, Kate McCann refused to answer 48 specific questions.
Madeleine’s mother, who was legally represented in the interview, stayed silent as police threw a series of loaded questions at her that made clear they thought she was involved in her daughter’s disappearance.
She answered only once – when accused of harming the hunt for Madeleine by her silence.

Pictured: The bedroom where Madeleine McCann met her fate
Revealed: The Maddie e-fits the public never saw
Maddie police were no Poirots, mock their OWN prosecutors
These are the questions:
1. On May 3 2007, around 22:00, when you entered the apartment, what did you see? What did you do? Where did you look? What did you touch?
2. Did you search inside the bedroom wardrobe? (she replied that she wouldn’t answer)
3. (shown 2 photographs of her bedroom wardrobe) Can you describe its contents?
4. Why had the curtain behind the sofa in front of the side window (whose photo was shown to her) been tampered with? Did somebody go behind that sofa?
5. How long did your search of the apartment take after you detected your daughter Madeleine’s disappearance?
6. Why did you say from the start that Madeleine had been abducted?
7. Assuming Madeleine had been abducted, why did you leave the twins home alone to go to the ‘Tapas’ and raise the alarm? Because the supposed abductor could still be in the apartment.
8. Why didn’t you ask the twins, at that moment, what had happened to their sister or why didn’t you ask them later on?
9. When you raised the alarm at the ‘Tapas’ what exactly did you say and what were your exact words?
10. What happened after you raised the alarm in the ‘Tapas’?
11. Why did you go and warn your friends instead of shouting from the verandah?
12. Who contacted the authorities?
13. Who took place in the searches?
14. Did anyone outside of the group learn of Madeleine’s disappearance in those following minutes?
15. Did any neighbour offer you help after the disappearance?
16. What does ‘we let her down’ mean?
17. Did Jane tell you that night that she’d seen a man with a child?
18. How were the authorities contacted and which police force was alerted?
19. During the searches, with the police already there, where did you search for Maddie, how and in what way?
20. Why did the twins not wake up during that search or when they were taken upstairs?
21. Who did you phone after the occurrence?
22. Did you call Sky News?
23. Did you know the danger of calling the media, because it could influence the abductor?
24. Did you ask for a priest?
25. By what means did you divulge Madeleine’s features, by photographs or by any other means?
26. Is it true that during the searches you remained seated on Maddie’s bed without moving?
27. What was your behaviour that night?
28. Did you manage to sleep?
29. Before travelling to Portugal did you make any comment about a foreboding or a bad feeling?
30. What was Madeleine’s behaviour like?
31. Did Maddie suffer from any illness or take any medication?
32. What was Madeleine’s relationship like with her brother and sister?
33. What was Madeleine’s relationship like with her brother and sister, friends and school mates?
34. As for your professional life, in how many and which hospitals have you worked?
35. What is your medical specialty?
36. Have you ever done shift work in any emergency services or other services?
37. Did you work every day?
38. At a certain point you stopped working, why?
39. Are the twins difficult to get to sleep? Are they restless and does that cause you uneasiness?
40. Is it true that sometimes you despaired with your children’s behaviour and that left you feeling very uneasy?
41. Is it true that in England you even considered handing over Madeleine’s custody to a relative?
42. In England, did you medicate your children? What type of medication?
43. In the case files you were SHOWN CANINE forensic testing films, where you can see them marking due to detection of the scent of human corpse and blood traces, also human, and only human, as well as all the comments of the technician in charge of them. After watching and after the marking of the scent of corpse in your bedroom beside the wardrobe and behind the sofa, pushed up against the sofa wall, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?
44. When the sniffer dog also marked human blood behind the sofa, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?
45. When the sniffer dog marked the scent of corpse coming from the vehicle you hired a month after the disappearance, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?
46. When human blood was marked in the boot of the vehicle, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?
47. When confronted with the results of Maddie’s DNA, whose analysis was carried out in a British laboratory, collected from behind the sofa and the boot of the vehicle, did you say you couldn’t explain any more than you already had?
48. Did you have any responsibility or intervention in your daughter’s disappearance?
Q. Are you aware that in not answering the questions you are jeopardising the investigation, which seeks to discover what happened to your daughter?
A. ‘Yes, if that’s what the investigation thinks.’

This probable manslaughter/accident took place in May 2007 why have 10s of £1,000 been spent on fund raising for the parents and to defend them yet not one cent has been invested in prosecuting them for neglect leading to the death/disappearance of their daughter.

An interesting article – the text can be viewed if you CLICK HERE
There are now two books dealing with and discussing the details the one written by an investigative journalist in New York with whom I have had lengthy conversation, prior to the publication of the book called ‘Madelaine McCann Faked Abduction’ which I had expected to be quite good prior to publication but it has been hugely denigrated by promotion via gutter broadcasting and a known serial liar and abuser, bully and neo nutter a member of The Mormon Church who sees himself as an incarnation of The Holy Ghost called Paul Drockton – one can reasonably assume that as he has a high profile role in marketing the book it is probably a pack of lies and unmittigated bunckum, or at very least implausibly suspect – though I concede being aware he was associated I have not bothered reading the book.

There is also a book by the Portuguese Detective who was lead in investigation for the Police, who stated he is convinced the child died in the appartment. I have not read his book but urge you to seek out what facts you can and draw your own conclusion – do not let corrupt organisations like Carter Ruck intimidate you and block reasonable freedom of speech.

Finally I reitterate that I believe that Kate & Gerry McCann should be arrested and charged with the reckless endangerment of their 3 minor children a result of which was the probable demise of Madeleinne the eldest or as an outside possibility her abduction.
Either situation was their fault and responsibility and as Doctors they were in gross negligence of their parental and professional duties and training and were indisputably aware of the risks which they flagrantly ignored for their own selfish gain.

McCanns: Amaral’s documentary 

will never be shown in England

In England, the documentary was attentively watched on the Internet (—) by those who wanted to watch what they know no channel in the country will broadcast.
That Kate & Gerry McCann brought their profession into disrepute is undeniable.

#G306* – 16,000 UK Service Personnel Have Died since I was born in 1946 post WWII

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 25/07/2010

#G306* – 16,000 UK Service Personnel Have Died since I was born in 1946 post WWII
That is the extent of the sacrifice to maintain peace, independence and our Sovereignty while seeking to protect our allies.
Yet our Treacherous, fiddling and duplicitous politicians not only in abrogation of their duty but in venal self interest have against the informed will of the peoples of these United Kingdoms have treasonously some might say but clearly dishonestly and treacherously emasculated our Westminster Government, destroyed our democracy and surrendered our Governance to the malign, malicious and destructive centralised, undemocratic and unarguably corrupt EU government.
What thought did they give for the 16,000 British Service Personnel who died to prevent this Evil?

Did they give any thought to the 5.7 Million deaths of British & allied troops in WWI

Any thought for the 14.2 Million British & allied troops who died in WWII SOURCE
What of Tyburn Hill for traitors now – Perhaps Parliament Square would be more apposite.
As John Of Gaunt so rightly said:

Methinks I am a prophet new inspired
And thus expiring do foretell of him:
His rash fierce blaze of riot cannot last,
For violent fires soon burn out themselves;
Small showers last long, but sudden storms are short;
He tires betimes that spurs too fast betimes;
With eager feeding food doth choke the feeder:
Light vanity, insatiate cormorant,
Consuming means, soon preys upon itself.
This royal throne of kings, this scepter’d isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall,
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England,
This nurse, this teeming womb of royal kings,
Fear’d by their breed and famous by their birth,
Renowned for their deeds as far from home,
For Christian service and true chivalry,
As is the sepulchre in stubborn Jewry,
Of the world’s ransom, blessed Mary’s Son,
This land of such dear souls, this dear dear land,
Dear for her reputation through the world,
Is now leased out, I die pronouncing it,
Like to a tenement or pelting farm:
England, bound in with the triumphant sea
Whose rocky shore beats back the envious siege
Of watery Neptune, is now bound in with shame,
With inky blots and rotten parchment bonds:
That England, that was wont to conquer others,
Hath made a shameful conquest of itself.
Ah, would the scandal vanish with my life,
How happy then were my ensuing death!

I can so readily empathise!
and we can readily forgive Damiel Hannan for his plagiarism which he readily acknowledges CLICK HERE
Or even I when I have said in one form or another since the early 1960s:

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit
of their own agenda and greed, have done more
damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy
of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.

In all 60 to 70 Million people died in WWII and in stealth and treachery British Politicians betrayed our history, our dead, our peoples and not just our children but our future when duplicitously they signed The Treaty of Rome and each and every inky blot and wordy obfuscation that has dishonestly and corruptly emanated from the Evil Union until the final ignominious surrender and hand over in totality of these United Kingdoms when The Lisbon Treaty was signed as a New Constitution for the peoples of the EU to be forced upon Britain against the informed will of our peoples.

VIDEO: 16,000 remembered at new Armed Forces Memorial

A History and Honour news article

12 Oct 07

The first ever truly national memorial dedicated to UK Service Personnel who have lost their lives since the Second World War has been unveiled today, 12 October 2007, by HM The Queen.

The Memorial has almost 16,000 names engraved on its huge Portland Stone walls, with space for 15,000 more, a poignant reminder of the cost of the freedom and democracy enjoyed in the UK.
2,000 family members of those with their names etched into its stone joined the Queen at the opening ceremony today along with the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Defence Secretary Des Browne and the Chiefs of Staff.
Uniquely, the Armed Forces Memorial, is the first national memorial that remembers all members of HM Armed Forces, both Regular and Reserve, whether killed on duty, by terrorist action, in training accidents, or any other activity connected with serving in the Armed Forces. It also includes members of the Merchant Navy and Royal Fleet Auxiliary killed in conflict zones when in direct support of the Armed Forces.
The first names etched into the stone are from 1948 with the list of the fallen currently ending with the crew of the Nimrod killed over Afghanistan in 2006. The names of more than 80 Service Personnel killed since 2006 will be engraved on the memorial in 2008. Names will continue to be added in this way for future years.
Air Chief Marshal Sir Jock Stirrup, Chief of Defence Staff, said:

“Over the last six decades the men and women of our Armed Services have faced unceasing challenges. In diverse, difficult and often dangerous circumstances, they have operated across the full spectrum of conflict: high-intensity war fighting, peacekeeping, reconstruction and development, humanitarian assistance, and much else besides. And they have done this with great success. They have an unmatched reputation, and the nation is rightly proud of them.
“But such success does not come without cost, and in military operations the price can be very high indeed. For some it involves the ultimate sacrifice.”

The Memorial is located in the 150 acre woodland of the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, allowing access from all corners of the country.
The courage and sacrifice of the family and friends of Personnel who have lost their lives serving their country is also remembered for the first time, with a centrepiece of evocative bronze sculptures.
Air Chief Marshal Sir Jock Stirrup added:

“The families and loved ones of those we have lost must be no less in our thoughts. The nation owes them a debt of thanks that can never adequately be met. But I hope that this new Memorial offers them a place of solace, and a sense that at last we have a tangible reflection of, and focus for, the Nation’s remembrance and gratitude.”

HRH The Prince of Wales, Patron of the Armed Forces Memorial Trust, said:

“We sometimes take for granted the expectation that our Armed Forces are professional, loyal and dedicated. In reality our expectation is far exceeded. These men and women are prepared to give their lives defending our Nation’s interests and the freedom of others and yet their sacrifice all too often goes without recognition. I personally believe we owe them all an enormous debt of gratitude for all they do.”

Today’s ceremony included a fly past by more than 20 aircraft from all three Services, past and present, including a Tornado F3 aircraft as well as the Red Devils and the RAF Falcons.
Designed by architect Liam O’Connor, the Armed Forces Memorial (AFM) draws inspiration from the ancient landscapes of prehistoric Britain and classical forms of ancient Rome.

It is set on a six metre high earth mound, 100 metres wide at its base, reducing to just over 50 metres wide at the top, where 43 metre curved Portland Stone walls and two straight walls enclose the bronze sculptures within, which were created by Ian Rank-Broadley, who also created the effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II, which appears on all UK and Commonwealth coinage.

The Memorial is independent and belongs to the people. Access and use of the Memorial will be administered by the AFM Board of Trustees, who will safeguard equal access to all. Vice Admiral Sir John Dunt, Chairman of the AFM Board of Trustees, said:

“Today is the culmination of many months of hard work, which for those involved, has been a labour of love. Many of us involved in this project have lost family or friends, whose names are now on the Memorial.”

The AFM project came into being because despite the Commonwealth War Graves Commission paying tribute to those who died during the two World Wars, it was widely accepted that there was insufficient recognition of the men and women of our Armed Forces who have given their lives in the service of their country since the end of WWII. Following a period of extensive consultation with the Services and Ex-Services community it was concluded that a new national memorial should be constructed.
Jenny Green, the Chairman of the War Widows’ Association was at the opening ceremony today and said:

“It is 17 years since my husband Bill was killed in a Tornado crash, yet no detail of that time has been erased from my mind. None of us will ever forget the moments of our lives changed forever. My husband’s body was never recovered and there are many others who do not have a grave or headstone to visit, so for me and my children and others like us a Memorial like this has a special significance.”

£7 million has been raised so far for the building of the memorial through public subscription and a significant number of private donations, including many from readers of the Daily Mail and The Sun, as well as a substantial contribution from the Millennium Commission (£2.4 million), and the revenue from sales of the Trafalgar 200 coin (£1.5 million). A further million is needed to maintain it.
Speaking at today’s ceremony the National President of the Royal British Legion, Air Marshal Ian Macfadyen recited the World War One poem:

“They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”

As I recall today, on the very day yet another brutal bullying oaff in the police was let of being charged with murder having, clearly and undeniably on film, assaulted and brutalised a passing stranger a Mr. Ian Tomlinson as I recall – an assault that directly and irrefutably caused his death in a manner that that very same police coward would have been only too gleeful to arrest, brutalise and prosecute you or I for murder which would indubitably have been upheld by his police force – The Metropolitan Police and the CPS.

It is interesting to note not a single solitary member of the public carrying out their democratic right to voice their protest has shown the slightest sign of aggression, nor posed ANY kind of threat to the aggressive and unpleasant behaviour of the Met.

Interestingly not a single sign of aggression can be seen even when the Sargeant who carried out the assault that killed Ian Tomlinson smashed the middle aged paper seller with his hand in his pockets to the ground in the most violent, cowardly and utterly gratuitous attack from behind.

It is sadly clear that the British Police are completely out of control and just chav murder squads roaming our streets in their own interest looking for and provoking aggression with their own vile behaviour, again a video showing absolutely no aggression from the lawfully protesting citizens – watch the police trying to create a fight and the 6foot + Police Sargeant repeatedly striking the pregnant woman HE is not alone!

The British Police need serious retraining, competent leadership and reminding that they are OUR servants:

It was on this very day that the anniversary of the murder of another innocent man took place due to a similar lack of training, poor discipline, endemic brutality, attrocious leadership, incompetent use of firearms by the murderer in the fire arms Metropolitan Police hit squad under the crass and incompetent control of Cressida Dick.

The murdered man whose anniversary it was was Jean Charles de Menenez who was culpably murdered not only was no Police Officer ever prosecuted for the murder but the murderer was sent on holiday with his family overseas as a reward before resuming his right to murder with impunity in the armed division of the Metropolitan police and his commanding officer was rewarded for her part in the murder with a promotion.

Let us not forget that in the last 50 years 1,000 people have died in Police custody!

Interestingly when Patrick Nichols MP asked a question in the House of Commons for me:

1. Has any life ever been provably saved, of an uninvolved individual by the use of a police fire arm.?

2. Is it true that the British Police have ordered and hold 27,000 Heckler & Koch machine action firearms?

3. Is it true that the British Police have ordered and hold 17,500 Winchester Pump Action shotguns?

The official answer of The Home Office was we do not have a record centrally of these details and it is the decision of the independent constabulary regions to decide their requirement for firearms!

The Home Office was unable to identify a single life saved by having an armed police force.

It is interesting that, although I do not personally agree the decision, Britain has by due democratic process, in as far as one exists in Britain, voted that we shall NOT have a process leading to execution in our Courts.

We have decided that it is not acceptable, wise as I believe it to be, that with due process, the leading of evidence and debate and the presentation of defence and debate a decision shall not be made by 12 citizens as to whether guilt beyond all reasonable doubt, such that a Judge may pass a Death sentence shall be an accepted form of punishment for certain prescribed heinous crimes.

Yet arbitrarilly it is permissable for poorly trained, ill disciplined, badly led, out of control police oaffs are able to shoot and kill selected victims on our streets and in their homes without facing the courts – Murder is thus a declared part of Police policy.

You will note on one of my blogs I have listed some 37 police murders and in not a single solitary murder by the police has the murderer or his commanding officer been prosecuted for the murder!

Surely this is an integral part of defining a Country as a Police State where the Police may murder the citizenry with absolute impunity!

For further examples CLICK HERE & HERE there are many more examples of Police Murders that went unpunished, with 2 out of every 5 Police who are found guilty of a serious crime retaining their job, just search >POLICE< on this blog to start with!

Let us not forget that in the last 50 years 1,000 people have died in Police custody!That is more people killed by the police in Britain than deaths of British soldiers in Irag AND Afghanistan put together!

#G303* – The Origins of Political Correctness

The Origins of Political Correctness
Bill Lind, February 5, 2000

An Accuracy in Academia Address by Bill Lind

Variations of this speech have been delivered to various AIA conferences including the 2000 Consevative University at American University

Where does all this stuff that you’ve heard about this morning – the victim feminism, the gay rights movement, the invented statistics, the rewritten history, the lies, the demands, all the rest of it – where does it come from? For the first time in our history, Americans have to be fearful of what they say, of what they write, and of what they think. They have to be afraid of using the wrong word, a word denounced as offensive or insensitive, or racist, sexist, or homophobic.

We have seen other countries, particularly in this century, where this has been the case. And we have always regarded them with a mixture of pity, and to be truthful, some amusement, because it has struck us as so strange that people would allow a situation to develop where they would be afraid of what words they used. But we now have this situation in this country. We have it primarily on college campuses, but it is spreading throughout the whole society. Were does it come from? What is it?

We call it “Political Correctness.” The name originated as something of a joke, literally in a comic strip, and we tend still to think of it as only half-serious. In fact, it’s deadly serious. It is the great disease of our century, the disease that has left tens of millions of people dead in Europe, in Russia, in China, indeed around the world. It is the disease of ideology. PC is not funny. PC is deadly serious.

If we look at it analytically, if we look at it historically, we quickly find out exactly what it is. Political Correctness is cultural Marxism. It is Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms. It is an effort that goes back not to the 1960s and the hippies and the peace movement, but back to World War I. If we compare the basic tenets of Political Correctness with classical Marxism the parallels are very obvious.

First of all, both are totalitarian ideologies. The totalitarian nature of Political Correctness is revealed nowhere more clearly than on college campuses, many of which at this point are small ivy covered North Koreas, where the student or faculty member who dares to cross any of the lines set up by the gender feminist or the homosexual-rights activists, or the local black or Hispanic group, or any of the other sainted “victims” groups that PC revolves around, quickly find themselves in judicial trouble. Within the small legal system of the college, they face formal charges – some star-chamber proceeding – and punishment. That is a little look into the future that Political Correctness intends for the nation as a whole.

Indeed, all ideologies are totalitarian because the essence of an ideology (I would note that conservatism correctly understood is not an ideology) is to take some philosophy and say on the basis of this philosophy certain things must be true – such as the whole of the history of our culture is the history of the oppression of women. Since reality contradicts that, reality must be forbidden. It must become forbidden to acknowledge the reality of our history. People must be forced to live a lie, and since people are naturally reluctant to live a lie, they naturally use their ears and eyes to look out and say, “Wait a minute. This isn’t true. I can see it isn’t true,” the power of the state must be put behind the demand to live a lie. That is why ideology invariably creates a totalitarian state.

Second, the cultural Marxism of Political Correctness, like economic Marxism, has a single factor explanation of history. Economic Marxism says that all of history is determined by ownership of means of production. Cultural Marxism, or Political Correctness, says that all history is determined by power, by which groups defined in terms of race, sex, etc., have power over which other groups. Nothing else matters. All literature, indeed, is about that. Everything in the past is about that one thing.

Third, just as in classical economic Marxism certain groups, i.e. workers and peasants, are a priori good, and other groups, i.e., the bourgeoisie and capital owners, are evil. In the cultural Marxism of Political Correctness certain groups are good – feminist women, (only feminist women, non-feminist women are deemed not to exist) blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals. These groups are determined to be “victims,” and therefore automatically good regardless of what any of them do. Similarly, white males are determined automatically to be evil, thereby becoming the equivalent of the bourgeoisie in economic Marxism.

Fourth, both economic and cultural Marxism rely on expropriation. When the classical Marxists, the communists, took over a country like Russia, they expropriated the bourgeoisie, they took away their property. Similarly, when the cultural Marxists take over a university campus, they expropriate through things like quotas for admissions. When a white student with superior qualifications is denied admittance to a college in favor of a black or Hispanic who isn’t as well qualified, the white student is expropriated. And indeed, affirmative action, in our whole society today, is a system of expropriation. White owned companies don’t get a contract because the contract is reserved for a company owned by, say, Hispanics or women. So expropriation is a principle tool for both forms of Marxism.

And finally, both have a method of analysis that automatically gives the answers they want. For the classical Marxist, it’s Marxist economics. For the cultural Marxist, it’s deconstruction. Deconstruction essentially takes any text, removes all meaning from it and re-inserts any meaning desired. So we find, for example, that all of Shakespeare is about the suppression of women, or the Bible is really about race and gender. All of these texts simply become grist for the mill, which proves that “all history is about which groups have power over which other groups.” So the parallels are very evident between the classical Marxism that we’re familiar with in the old Soviet Union and the cultural Marxism that we see today as Political Correctness.

But the parallels are not accidents. The parallels did not come from nothing. The fact of the matter is that Political Correctness has a history, a history that is much longer than many people are aware of outside a small group of academics who have studied this. And the history goes back, as I said, to World War I, as do so many of the pathologies that are today bringing our society, and indeed our culture, down.

Marxist theory said that when the general European war came (as it did come in Europe in 1914), the working class throughout Europe would rise up and overthrow their governments – the bourgeois governments – because the workers had more in common with each other across the national boundaries than they had in common with the bourgeoisie and the ruling class in their own country. Well, 1914 came and it didn’t happen. Throughout Europe, workers rallied to their flag and happily marched off to fight each other. The Kaiser shook hands with the leaders of the Marxist Social Democratic Party in Germany and said there are no parties now, there are only Germans. And this happened in every country in Europe. So something was wrong.

Marxists knew by definition it couldn’t be the theory. In 1917, they finally got a Marxist coup in Russia and it looked like the theory was working, but it stalled again. It didn’t spread and when attempts were made to spread immediately after the war, with the Spartacist uprising in Berlin, with the Bela Kun government in Hungary, with the Munich Soviet, the workers didn’t support them.

So the Marxists’ had a problem. And two Marxist theorists went to work on it: Antonio Gramsci in Italy and Georg Lukacs in Hungary. Gramsci said the workers will never see their true class interests, as defined by Marxism, until they are freed from Western culture, and particularly from the Christian religion – that they are blinded by culture and religion to their true class interests. Lukacs, who was considered the most brilliant Marxist theorist since Marx himself, said in 1919, “Who will save us from Western Civilization?” He also theorized that the great obstacle to the creation of a Marxist paradise was the culture: Western civilization itself.

Lukacs gets a chance to put his ideas into practice, because when the home grown Bolshevik Bela Kun government is established in Hungary in 1919, he becomes deputy commissar for culture, and the first thing he did was introduce sex education into the Hungarian schools. This ensured that the workers would not support the Bela Kun government, because the Hungarian people looked at this aghast, workers as well as everyone else. But he had already made the connection that today many of us are still surprised by, that we would consider the “latest thing.”

In 1923 in Germany, a think-tank is established that takes on the role of translating Marxism from economic into cultural terms, that creates Political Correctness as we know it today, and essentially it has created the basis for it by the end of the 1930s. This comes about because the very wealthy young son of a millionaire German trader by the name of Felix Weil has become a Marxist and has lots of money to spend. He is disturbed by the divisions among the Marxists, so he sponsors something called the First Marxist Work Week, where he brings Lukacs and many of the key German thinkers together for a week, working on the differences of Marxism.

And he says, “What we need is a think-tank.” Washington is full of think tanks and we think of them as very modern. In fact they go back quite a ways. He endows an institute, associated with Frankfurt University, established in 1923, that was originally supposed to be known as the Institute for Marxism. But the people behind it decided at the beginning that it was not to their advantage to be openly identified as Marxist. The last thing Political Correctness wants is for people to figure out it’s a form of Marxism. So instead they decide to name it the Institute for Social Research.

Weil is very clear about his goals. In 1971, he wrote to Martin Jay the author of a principle book on the Frankfurt School, as the Institute for Social Research soon becomes known informally, and he said, “I wanted the institute to become known, perhaps famous, due to its contributions to Marxism.” Well, he was successful. The first director of the Institute, Carl Grunberg, an Austrian economist, concluded his opening address, according to Martin Jay, “by clearly stating his personal allegiance to Marxism as a scientific methodology.” Marxism, he said, would be the ruling principle at the Institute, and that never changed.
The initial work at the Institute was rather conventional, but in 1930 it acquired a new director named Max Horkheimer, and Horkheimer’s views were very different. He was very much a Marxist renegade. The people who create and form the Frankfurt School are renegade Marxists. They’re still very much Marxist in their thinking, but they’re effectively run out of the party. Moscow looks at what they are doing and says, “Hey, this isn’t us, and we’re not going to bless this.”

Horkheimer’s initial heresy is that he is very interested in Freud, and the key to making the translation of Marxism from economic into cultural terms is essentially that he combined it with Freudism. Again, Martin Jay writes, “If it can be said that in the early years of its history, the Institute concerned itself primarily with an analysis of bourgeois society’s socio-economic sub-structure,” – and I point out that Jay is very sympathetic to the Frankfurt School, I’m not reading from a critic here – “in the years after 1930 its primary interests lay in its cultural superstructure. Indeed the traditional Marxist formula regarding the relationship between the two was brought into question by Critical Theory.”

The stuff we’ve been hearing about this morning – the radical feminism, the women’s studies departments, the gay studies departments, the black studies departments – all these things are branches of Critical Theory. What the Frankfurt School essentially does is draw on both Marx and Freud in the 1930s to create this theory called Critical Theory. The term is ingenious because you’re tempted to ask, “What is the theory?” The theory is to criticize. The theory is that the way to bring down Western culture and the capitalist order is not to lay down an alternative. They explicitly refuse to do that. They say it can’t be done, that we can’t imagine what a free society would look like (their definition of a free society). As long as we’re living under repression – the repression of a capitalistic economic order which creates (in their theory) the Freudian condition, the conditions that Freud describes in individuals of repression – we can’t even imagine it. What Critical Theory is about is simply criticizing. It calls for the most destructive criticism possible, in every possible way, designed to bring the current order down. And, of course, when we hear from the feminists that the whole of society is just out to get women and so on, that kind of criticism is a derivative of Critical Theory. It is all coming from the 1930s, not the 1960s.

Other key members who join up around this time are Theodore Adorno, and, most importantly, Erich Fromm and Herbert Marcuse. Fromm and Marcuse introduce an element which is central to Political Correctness, and that’s the sexual element. And particularly Marcuse, who in his own writings calls for a society of “polymorphous perversity,” that is his definition of the future of the world that they want to create. Marcuse in particular by the 1930s is writing some very extreme stuff on the need for sexual liberation, but this runs through the whole Institute. So do most of the themes we see in Political Correctness, again in the early 30s. In Fromm’s view, masculinity and femininity were not reflections of ‘essential’ sexual differences, as the Romantics had thought. They were derived instead from differences in life functions, which were in part socially determined.” Sex is a construct; sexual differences are a construct.

Another example is the emphasis we now see on environmentalism. “Materialism as far back as Hobbes had led to a manipulative dominating attitude toward nature.” That was Horkhemier writing in 1933 in Materialismus und Moral. “The theme of man’s domination of nature,” according to Jay, ” was to become a central concern of the Frankfurt School in subsequent years.” “Horkheimer’s antagonism to the fetishization of labor, (here’s were they’re obviously departing from Marxist orthodoxy) expressed another dimension of his materialism, the demand for human, sensual happiness.” In one of his most trenchant essays, Egoism and the Movement for Emancipation, written in 1936, Horkeimer “discussed the hostility to personal gratification inherent in bourgeois culture.” And he specifically referred to the Marquis de Sade, favorably, for his “protest…against asceticism in the name of a higher morality.”

How does all of this stuff flood in here? How does it flood into our universities, and indeed into our lives today? The members of the Frankfurt School are Marxist, they are also, to a man, Jewish. In 1933 the Nazis came to power in Germany, and not surprisingly they shut down the Institute for Social Research. And its members fled. They fled to New York City, and the Institute was reestablished there in 1933 with help from Columbia University. And the members of the Institute, gradually through the 1930s, though many of them remained writing in German, shift their focus from Critical Theory about German society, destructive criticism about every aspect of that society, to Critical Theory directed toward American society. There is another very important transition when the war comes. Some of them go to work for the government, including Herbert Marcuse, who became a key figure in the OSS (the predecessor to the CIA), and some, including Horkheimer and Adorno, move to Hollywood.

These origins of Political Correctness would probably not mean too much to us today except for two subsequent events. The first was the student rebellion in the mid-1960s, which was driven largely by resistance to the draft and the Vietnam War. But the student rebels needed theory of some sort. They couldn’t just get out there and say, “Hell no we won’t go,” they had to have some theoretical explanation behind it. Very few of them were interested in wading through Das Kapital. Classical, economic Marxism is not light, and most of the radicals of the 60s were not deep. Fortunately for them, and unfortunately for our country today, and not just in the university, Herbert Marcuse remained in America when the Frankfurt School relocated back to Frankfurt after the war. And whereas Mr. Adorno in Germany is appalled by the student rebellion when it breaks out there – when the student rebels come into Adorno’s classroom, he calls the police and has them arrested – Herbert Marcuse, who remained here, saw the 60s student rebellion as the great chance. He saw the opportunity to take the work of the Frankfurt School and make it the theory of the New Left in the United States.

One of Marcuse’s books was the key book. It virtually became the bible of the SDS and the student rebels of the 60s. That book was Eros and Civilization. Marcuse argues that under a capitalistic order (he downplays the Marxism very strongly here, it is subtitled, A Philosophical Inquiry into Freud, but the framework is Marxist), repression is the essence of that order and that gives us the person Freud describes – the person with all the hang-ups, the neuroses, because his sexual instincts are repressed. We can envision a future, if we can only destroy this existing oppressive order, in which we liberate eros, we liberate libido, in which we have a world of “polymorphous perversity,” in which you can “do you own thing.” And by the way, in that world there will no longer be work, only play. What a wonderful message for the radicals of the mid-60s! They’re students, they’re baby-boomers, and they’ve grown up never having to worry about anything except eventually having to get a job. And here is a guy writing in a way they can easily follow. He doesn’t require them to read a lot of heavy Marxism and tells them everything they want to hear which is essentially, “Do your own thing,” “If it feels good do it,” and “You never have to go to work.” By the way, Marcuse is also the man who creates the phrase, “Make love, not war.” Coming back to the situation people face on campus, Marcuse defines “liberating tolerance” as intolerance for anything coming from the Right and tolerance for anything coming from the Left. Marcuse joined the Frankfurt School, in 1932 (if I remember right). So, all of this goes back to the 1930s.

In conclusion, America today is in the throes of the greatest and direst transformation in its history. We are becoming an ideological state, a country with an official state ideology enforced by the power of the state. In “hate crimes” we now have people serving jail sentences for political thoughts. And the Congress is now moving to expand that category ever further. Affirmative action is part of it. The terror against anyone who dissents from Political Correctness on campus is part of it. It’s exactly what we have seen happen in Russia, in Germany, in Italy, in China, and now it’s coming here. And we don’t recognize it because we call it Political Correctness and laugh it off. My message today is that it’s not funny, it’s here, it’s growing and it will eventually destroy, as it seeks to destroy, everything that we have ever defined as our freedom and our culture.

I believe that you will find George Osborne’s Machinations masquerading as a budget the other day were commensurate with his education as a Modern Historian in terms of invalidity for the matter at hand!

We note the matter of vat loomed large (clearly nothing like large enough to have the very slightest effect on even the annual interest on the obscene borrowings of 13 unlucky years of Labour economic illiteracy!). It was believed that vat loomed large because it was a tax levied disproportionately upon the poorest who spend the largest % of their income at retail!

There were those who foolishly believed that Cameron would keep his promise and not permit the undemocratic EU to increase its power over Britain but few will be surprised to find he lied!

The rise to 20% was imposed upon Britain without democratic vote by the EU central Government of these United Kingdoms – you remember ‘In the EU but not ruled by the EU’ well actually = In the EU and directly ruled by the EU!

The new 20% minimum rate was an EU directive that had to be in place by the end of the months outlining when it would be implemented and enforceable by the EU!

You will enjoy the next section which is largely stolen (with permission) from Simon Muir!

The method (value added) is an EU imposition. Prior to that the UK had
no attempt at universal fiscal control, only taxation designed to
intervene in markets or raise specific revenues. Purchase tax was paid
on ‘luxury’ items and by the consumer, not the wholesaler. It is the EU
intent to VAT-rate _EVERYTHING_ (air, if they could, and most certainly
drinking water!), to create a universal system.
The original intent was hypothecation to the EU, but Thatcher stopped it
when she determined the British budgetary contribution, including the
‘opt out’. AFAIK, there is no hypothecation to the EU at all at the
moment. Our ‘contribution’ (read tribute or extortion) comes from
central coffers independently.
There are fundamental rules imposed by the EU. ‘Exempt’ and ‘Zero Rated’
is not synonymous:
Exempt items are not taxed. They are a hangover from the days when we
had a fair tax system, and the EU’s declared intent is to eliminate
“Zero rated” items are ‘taxable supplies’ and must be accounted for in
VAT returns (IIRC – I don’t do any, although I am VAT registered). Once
something moves from Exempt to Zero Rated, it cannot ever be made Exempt
again (EU law). Zero Rated means ‘we don’t yet, but we will’.
The basic rate is agreed with the EU and cannot be reduced without the
EU’s permission. It does vary between countries (most are higher). For
example, when Darling dropped the rate to 15% he had to get permission
(disgusting, isn’t it?). That’s also why it had to go back to 17.5%
afterwards. We no longer have a higher rate band, but if we did, it’s
the only aspect over which a chancellor might have discretion.
Lower rates, such as ‘insurance premium tax’ and energy taxes, are VAT-
in-disguise. The intent is to ratchet them up to standard rate at which
point (once we’re used to it), they will simply be treated as normal
VAT. These categories too will never return to being not taxed (at the
consumer transaction), unless we leave the EU.
Although invented in the EU, VAT is used elsewhere in the world.
Bureaucracies love it, as it places the administrative burden mainly on
small businesses, thus (a) keeping them under the thumb, and (b)
concealing the real cost to the economy of such an inefficient tax.
I did a web page (attached below) giving a worked example of the
stupidity of it all. The best simple example however is paper bags: they
have a similar chain to the fictional woodscrews in the page, with this
unbelievable twist: the retailer gives them away, claims back 100% of
the VAT as ‘input tax’, and the exchequer gets nothing at all (net),
although there are probably at least 12 VAT transactions accounted for
in the manufacturing/distribution chain. We all pay for the
administration though, as a hidden part of the cost of the things we
There is also plenty of research that VAT falls disproportionately on
the poorest in society, because of the amount they must spend at retail.
I am not alone in thinking this kind of nonsense is wholly
unsustainable. It is the British equivalent of the ‘Shoe Shop Event
Horizon’ (kudos to Douglas Adams).
PS: Why aren’t your ‘public servants’ in Brussels (UKIP MEPs) publishing
this on a web site somewhere. Don’t bother–I know the answer to that
one – self-serving deceivers sums it up well!
Worked example of the VAT ladder
The table below illustrates how VAT is not paid by the supply chain, but by the consumer (who can’t recover it), also the vast sums swirling around the economy, as the tax is first levied, then paid to the exchequer, then reclaimed, and paid back to suppliers.
50% VAT on Woodscrews!
To simplify matters, our fictional Prudence has decided a 50% rate is fair (but only on woodscrews). It hasn’t caused rioting in the streets yet, as consumers are
(a) used to prices in the DIY warehouses by now, and
(b) well used to governments s******g them over:
Iron Foundry 0 100 150 50
Screw Mfg. 50 200 300 100
Distributor 100 400 600 200
Wholesaler 200 800 1200 400
Retailer 400 1600 2400 800
— —- —- —-
Column totals: 750 3100 4650 1550
The costs of this nonsense…
The above example hides 16 VAT account transactions, some potentially involving bank charges, and certainly involving cost to the accounting units. Auditing must be considered, and the VAT inspections, etc.
It all begs the question: Is this a sensible way to tax anything or anyone?

#G301* – The Intellectual Caliber of LABOUR That Lost The Election! After 13 Unlucky Years.

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 08/07/2010

#G301* – The Intellectual Caliber of LABOUR That Lost The Election! 
After 13 Unlucky Years.

In the interest of understanding why, on a day to day basis, Labour was resoundingly dumped by the electorate after 13 Unlucky years you may care to watch this idiot:

He has all the finesse we have seen of such as today’s newly created Labour Peer the EU’s Gauleiter John Lesley PRESSCOTT servant of The Soviet Union and long term Communist – The Power behind The Labour Government of the duplicitous liar and all round treacherous creep and mass murderer Anthony Charles Lynton BLAIR.

Presscott will be in his element alongside such vile and treacherous scum as Peter Mandelson, Niel Kinnock, Glenys Kinnock & Gorbles Mick.

It is interesting to note that in the months since being resoundingly dumped by the British people the economic illiterate and treacherous Gordon BROWN despite drawing his full salary as an MP has only turned up for work on two days!

Then they wonder why Labour were resoundingly dumped – that is not to say the present bunch of power hungry political prostitutes are any better!

here is another look at Social Services – there are obviously mistakes in tollerance and abuse, over use of powers and failure to use them.

Can it be so very difficult to see the difference between cases like the Baby P case and the Debbie & Tony case.

For all the fuss and bluster just look what a mess has occurred because the authorities failed in their duty to step in and a mother paraded her 30 year old daughter who had acute learning difficulties, Downs Syndrome and a mental age of 3.1/2 we are told. Clearly the authorities should have stepped in when the mother with what seems to be a fanciful ‘STORY’ of abuse, cover-up and murder for which there was absolutely no valid evidence but sufficient for the daughter to be turned into a FaceBook cause celebre for the nuttier end of society and an exhibit in studios and at public meetings!

Where were Social Services in the protection of these two vulnerable women over well over a year of lewd publicity?

It is good to see Christopher Booker featured as he clearly deserves it for his work on behalf of these children as StolenKids clearly shows.

For children whatever their age now, who are or were the victims of abuse or sexual abuse there is also the empowering site of StolenChildhood
