Sorry I let your secret out Jim!  But somehow these low horsepower cars are not anything I can picture you driving?


How old is this man ?

Stay with this — the answer is at the end.

It may blow you away.
One evening a grandson was talking to his grandfather about current events.
The grandson asked his grandfather what he thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general.
The Grandfather replied, “Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:
‘polio shots
‘frozen foods
‘contact lenses
‘Frisbees and
‘the pill
There were no:
‘credit cards
‘laser beams or
‘ball-point pens
Man had not invented:
‘air conditioners
‘clothes dryers
‘and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and
‘space travel was only in Flash Gordon books.

Your Grandmother and I got married first,.. and then lived together..
Every family had a father and a mother. Until I was 25, I called every woman older than me, “mam”. And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, “Sir”.
We were before gay-rights, computer-dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy.
Our lives were governed by the Bible, good judgment, and common sense. We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege… We thought fast food was eating half a biscuit while running to catch the school bus
Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.
Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started.
Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends-not purchasing condominiums.
We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings
We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President’s speeches on our radios. And I don’t ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey.
If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan ‘ on it, it was junk.
The term ‘making out’ referred to how you did on your school exam….
Pizza Hut, McDonald’s, and instant coffee were unheard of.
We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents. Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel. And if you didn’t want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.
You could buy a new Ford Coupe for $600, … but who could afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.
In my day:
‘”grass” was mowed,
‘”coke” was a cold drink,
‘”pot” was something your mother cooked in and
‘”rock music” was your grandmother’s lullaby.
‘”Aids” were helpers in the Principal’s office,
‘”chip” meant a piece of wood,
‘”hardware” was found in a hardware store and
‘”software” wasn’t even a word.
And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby.

How old do you think I am?
I bet you have this old man in mind…you are in for a shock!
Read on to see — pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the same time.
Are you ready ?????
This man would be 70 years old today.

70 years ago was 1948.

What’s really scary is what life will be after the next 70 years…

March For Our Lives Receives Permits For DC Gun Control Rally
March 13, 2018

The rally against gun violence led by survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting has been granted permits to host as many as 500,000 people in downtown Washington, D.C.

March For Our Lives will begin at noon on Saturday, March 24, The Washington Post reported Tuesday. It is being organized by survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting, in which 17 people were killed on Valentine’s Day.

National Park Service spokesman Mike Litterst told The Washington Post an application was approved for usage of sidewalks along Pennsylvania Avenue NW between Third and 12th streets; sidewalks along Constitution Avenue NW between First and Ninth streets; green space between Constitution Avenue, Pennsylvania Avenue and Third Street NW; and John Marshall Park, the U.S. Navy Memorial and Freedom Plaza.

Supermarket Bankruptcies Are Beginning to Pile Up
March 19, 2018

This is how the grocery industry lives now.

Regional chains are filing for bankruptcy. European-born discounters are expanding, forcing competitors to keep their own prices low. And Kroger Co. and Walmart Inc., the two largest grocers in the U.S., are investing in technology and expanding delivery as they try to fend off an incursion by Inc.

It’s a bleak outlook for a sector that was supposed to be rebounding this year. A historic bout of food deflation — which fueled a price war in the past two years — has ended, but efforts to sell more groceries online are gobbling up investment dollars. And some well-known names are crying uncle.

Ex-Obama Campaign Director Drops Bombshell Claim on Facebook: ‘They Were on Our Side’
March 19, 2018

A former Obama campaign official is claiming that Facebook knowingly allowed them to mine massive amounts of Facebook data — more than they would’ve allowed someone else to do — because they were supportive of the campaign.

In a Sunday tweet thread, Carol Davidsen, former director of integration and media analytics for Obama for America, said the 2012 campaign led Facebook to “suck out the whole social graph” and target potential voters. They would then use that data to do things like append their email lists.

I can still remember watching “The FBI…in color” in the late 1960’s on Sunday nights and thinking “how cool”. What a shock it would have been at eight years old to know the head of the FBI’s wife ran for office and was paid by one or the other party’s? So much for the blindfolded lady holding the scales…? Please don’t get me wrong, it matters not “which party”, I only seek truth…and truth only!

Trump Reportedly Turned On His Acting Fbi Director And Mocked His Wife In A Phone Call Right After He Fired James Comey
January 29, 2018

President Donald Trump vented to the Andrew McCabe and mocked his wife in a phone call immediately after firing James Comey as FBI director in May, NBC News reported Monday.

McCabe, the acting director at the time, later became the deputy director of the bureau. He left the FBI on Monday.

Multiple people familiar with the call told NBC News that Trump called McCabe after becoming furious about footage that showed Comey boarding a government-funded plane to Washington, DC, after his firing, which he learned of at an event in Los Angeles.

The sources said that Trump demanded to know why Comey was allowed to take such a flight and that McCabe told the president he had not been asked to authorize the flight but would have if he were.

That was when Trump turned silent for a moment and then suggested to McCabe that he ask his wife how it felt to be a loser, the people said. Jill McCabe ran as a Democrat for a Virginia Senate seat in 2015 but lost.


Bill Holter’s Commentary

Flynn bankrupted himself by hiring lawyers to defend against Mueller and company…one can only hope McCabe and co conspirator Comey arrive at the same fate. Come to think of it, with the truth bombs we envision, we wish for the same fate for THE MANY who have lead us down the path of public delusion…

McCabe Gave Interview, Handed Over Trump Memos To Mueller
March 17, 2018

Update: Well, just as Comey had a personal “leaker” to deliver his Trump-memos to the NYT, so McCabe had found a quick line of communication to the press involving “confidential” matters surrounding the Mueller probe, and Axios reports, McCabe has met with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team and has turned over memos detailing interactions with President Trump, “according to a source familiar with the exchange.”

Axios’ source reveals that the memos include corroboration by McCabe of Comey’s account of his own firing by Trump, as well as an account of at least one in-person meeting with Trump, which however considering McCabe was fired for perjury – among other things – may not carry quite as much weight.

McCabe had previously alluded to the memos in the statement after his firing, in which he said: “My testimony to the House Intelligence Committee revealed that I would corroborate former Director Comey’s accounts of his discussions with the President.”


Bill Holter’s Commentary

Are you surprised? Don’t be, this is how “they” take care of each other…and the music just plays on I guess?

Andrew Mccabe Was Just Offered A Job By A Congressman So He Can Get His Full Retirement. And It Just Might Work
March 17, 2017

That’s one way of protesting Andrew McCabe’s firing as deputy FBI director, roughly a day before he was set to retire: At least one Democratic congressman has offered McCabe a temporary job so he can get full retirement benefits — and McCabe appears to be considering.

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) announced Saturday afternoon that he has offered McCabe a job to work on election security in his office, “so that he can reach the needed length of service” to retire.

“My offer of employment to Mr. McCabe is a legitimate offer to work on election security,” Pocan said in a statement. “Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of American democracy and both Republicans and Democrats should be concerned about election integrity.”

Disasters, Arrogance And Greed: From The Titanic To Fukushima (And The One Person Who Could Have Made A Difference)
The wounds

suffered by the survivors and shown by the bodies of the dead are of a shocking description. In some cases the flesh is torn in shreds, exposing the bones beneath; in others the eyes are forced from their sockets; in others the victim looks as though he has been plunged into boiling water and almost every body shows purple spots as if it had been forcibly pelted with fragments of stone and iron.

–An unsigned description of the 1896 tsunami that hit north-Eastern Japan with a 110-foot wall of water, killing more than 28,000.

Accidents are rarely accidental. Paradoxically, there is almost always one person who could have spoken up courageously and prevented a catastrophe. This article explores why they didn’t do that. The tragic and avoidable accidents from recent history, that I describe here, are the result of various combinations of cost-cutting for profit, risk-taking for fame, or ignorance of the complexities of modern systems.


About as dumb as they need to be from how I see it David…


How dumb are the masses of the world!


Framing Putin – Saga of the Spy and the Nerve Agent
March 15, 2018

How dumb are the masses of the world? One need only look at the brazen, obvious false flag incidents that the elites keep piling on. Trained to be consumers of sensational news, the idiotic population of the West simply accepts allegations without thinking or analysis.

Let’s take a brief look at the claim that Putin/Kremlin/Russia used a deadly chemical weapon (called “Novichok”) against an ex-Russian spy who has been living in the UK for eight years. Within hours of the incident, the UK foreign minister – bozo Boris Johnson – claimed that Russia was behind the attack. Then Theresa May said it’s “highly likely” that Russia did it; and everyone translated that into “definitely Russia did it.” Now, of course, crazed warmonger Nikki Haley has joined the chorus and even tells people that Russia may use chemical weapons in New York.

Who has Novichok? Yes, Novichok was invented and produced by the USSR in the 1970s and 80s. But that was 30+ years ago. Hello! Did anyone take the time to wonder if it’s now possible for others to possess or make it?


Our friend Robert checks in with more of what we’ve spoken of over the last couple weeks. Again, frightening!


One of the better writings on what Putin said and what it means.

It would appear that the Neocons have failed to listen just like no one listened before as we watch naval battle groups form in the Middle East to attack Syria.

Only a naive party incapable of analysis would tempt fate with the deployed capability the Russians have. Unless of course some secret sauce is possessed.

It is not a contest or a Hollywood bravado movie in the making but it will turn out to be a complete disaster if Syria is hit. Perhaps that is objective so that. Anew Cold War results to feed the military machine at the expense of humanity.

We will need more than popcorn to sooth the mind, if hostilities break out.



The Implications of Russia’s New Weapon Systems
March 16, 2018

During the August 2008 Russo-Georgian War, the operations of Russia’s 58th Army were termed as “coercion into peace”. It is an appropriate term once one recalls what truly was at stake then. Russians did win that war and, indeed, coerced Georgia into a much more peaceful mood. In Clausewitzian terms the Russians achieved the main object of the war by compelling the enemy to do Russia’s will. Russians, as the events of the last 19 years showed, have no illusions anymore about the possibility of any kind of reasonable civilized conduct from the combined West, least of all from the United States which still continues to reside in her bubble which insulates her from any outside voices of reason and peace. The American global track record of the last few decades does not require any special elaborations—it is a record of military and humanitarian disasters.

Vladimir Putin’s March 1st, 2018 address to Russia’s Federal Assembly was not about Russia’s upcoming presidential elections, as many in the election-obsessed West suggest. Putin’s speech was about coercing America’s elites into, if not peace, at least into some form of sanity, given that they are currently completely detached from the geopolitical, military and economic realities of a newly emerging world. As it was the case with Georgia in 2008, the coercion was based on military power. The Pre-Shoigu Russian Army, for all its real and perceived shortcomings, disposed of the US-trained and partially equipped Georgian force in a matter of five days—the Russian Army’s technology, personnel and operational art was simply better. Obviously such a scenario is not possible between Russia and the United States; that is unless the American myth of technological superiority is blown out of the water.


Simon’s rant was so spot on, it sounds like I wrote it! During his rant, he mentioned this article put out by the Saker. I would urge all readers to read through it. The Western powers are on a suicide mission.

When Dealing With A Bear, Hubris Is Suicidal
March 15, 2018

[This analysis was written for the Unz Review]

Assuming mankind finds a way not to destroy itself in the near future and assuming that there will still be historians in the 22nd or 23rd centuries, I bet you that they will look at the AngloZionist Empire and see the four following characteristics as some of its core features: lies, willful ignorance, hypocrisy, and hysterics. To illustrate my point I will use the recent “Skripal nerve-gas assassination” story as it really encompasses all of these characteristics.

I won’t even bother debunking the official nonsense here as others have done a very good job of pointing out the idiocy of the official narrative. If you are truly capable of believing that “Putin” (that is the current collective designator for the Evil Empire of Mordor currently threatening all of western civilization) would order the murder of a man whom a Russian military court sentenced to only 13 years in jail (as opposed to life or death) and who was subsequently released as part of a swap with the USA, you can stop reading right now and go back to watching TV. I personally have neither the energy nor the inclination to even discuss such a self-evidently absurd theory. No, what I do want to do is use this story as a perfect illustration of the kind of society we now all live in looked at from a moral point of view. I realize that we live in a largely value-free society where moral norms have been replaced by ideological orthodoxy, but that is just one more reason for me to write about what is taking place precisely focusing on the moral dimensions of current events.


Here is another excellent article by the Saker. The readers should read this as it ends with this warning from Mr. Putin….What need would we have for a world with no Russia?

Hold My Beer And Watch This!
March 15, 2018

Rattlesnakes have a terrible reputation. Here were I live, in Florida, we have the biggest rattlesnakes on the planet, the Eastern Diamondback (Crotalus adamanteus). They are huge and can reach well over 2m (6ft) in length and weigh up to 15kg (30lbs). The Eastern Diamondback’s venom is not the most potent out there, but they can deliver *a lot* of it. So, yes, it is a formidable creature. But it is also a gentle creature and truly very shy one.

Eastern Diamonbacks are also a stunningly beautiful creatures. I confess that I absolutely love them.

For all their reputation for nastiness, Eastern Diamonbacks will never ever attack you if they can avoid it. I have seen a lot of these snakes on my hikes, I have manipulated them (with a hook), and I have seen my German Shepherd come nose to nose with one (literally) and that Eastern Diamondback did not strike. Why? Because these snakes will do everything they can to avoid having to bite you.

Russia Claims US Deploys Warships For Imminent Attack On Syria, Trains Militants For False Flag Attack
March 17, 2018

Last April, in one of the Trump administration’s first “diplomatic” ventures, the US fired 59 Tomahawk missiles on Syria, in stated retaliation for the latest alleged chemical attack by the Assad regime, the same “false flag” excuse which was used by the US to officially enter the conflict back in 2013 when military tensions between the US and Russia nearly resulted in a regional war.

Britain ‘Four Meals Away From Anarchy’ If Cyber Attack Takes Out Power Grid
March 17, 2018

British cities would be uninhabitable within days and the country is only a few meals from anarchy if the National Grid was taken down in a cyber attack or solar storm, disaster and security experts have warned.

Modern life is so reliant on electricity that a prolonged blackout would quickly lead to a loss of water, fuel, banking, transport and communications that would leave the country “in the Stone Age”.

The warning comes weeks after the Defence Secretary, Gavin Williamson, said Russia had been spying on the UK’s energy infrastructure and could cause “thousands and thousands and thousands” of deaths if it crippled the power supply.

America this week blamed the Russian government for a campaign of cyber attacks stretching back at least two years that targeted the US power grid.

FDOT Warned About FIU Bridge Cracking 2 Days Before Fatal Collapse – But Didn’t Hear Voicemail
March 16, 2018

The Florida Department of Transportation announced the agency was warned about cracking in the Florida International University pedestrian bridge, two days before it collapsed, killing at least six people, but they didn’t listen to the voicemail until Friday.

The following voicemail was left on a landline Tuesday by W. Denney Pate, FIGG’s lead engineer responsible for the FIU pedestrian bridge project:

“Hey Tom, this is Denney Pate with FIGG bridge engineers. Calling to, uh, share with you some information about the FIU pedestrian bridge and some cracking that’s been observed on the north end of the span, the pylon end of that span we moved this weekend. Um, so, uh, we’ve taken a look at it and, uh, obviously some repairs or whatever will have to be done but from a safety perspective we don’t see that there’s any issue there so we’re not concerned about it from that perspective although obviously the cracking is not good and something’s going to have to be, ya know, done to repair that. At any rate, I wanted to chat with you about that because I suspect at some point that’s gonna get to your desk. So, uh, at any rate, call me back when you can. Thank you. Bye.”

People Deserve To Know The Facts

Will You Help Us Combat The Rush To War?

It has been without doubt one of the most difficult months in our 17 year history for constant abuse and attacks on our daily email newsletter and website.

Many of you will have witnessed the huge, attack by trolls on our comment system and in an attempt to portray ICH as a racist, anti-Semite, Russian fake news provider.

Like all previous attacks we have overcome them. In fact our readership increased by more than 100,000 over the last month. although I have to admit we would have preferred to spend the extra time and extra costs, bringing news and information about the current drive for war and the huge human cost that will involve rather than dealing with the pro war trolls who are determined to keep the U.S. and World public oblivious to their propaganda and desire for world hegemony.


Bravo Simon, sounds like you have the same bogus reporting problems in the UK as we see in the States! Don’t hold your breath waiting for those media rags to post your well written “rant”, truth be damned…


Morning Bill and Jim,

FYI and lest either of you (or Dave) can make use of any of it, herewith the copy of an email “rant” that I felt compelled to send to the editorial desks of two of the largest circulation newspapers over here in the UK – papers of which I will soon become an “ex-reader”.

All self-explanatory and brought on by the despair at having to hear and read a continual stream of falsehoods, in-accuracies and complete and utter “bullshit” about Putin, Russia and this recent Skripal poisoning in Salisbury from the UK print media and all of the national broadcasters as well.

My “rant” is pretty lengthy but covers a lot of ground. Hope you will find the time to read it.

All the best and looking forward to the “Saturday Discussion”.

Best and warmest,


Dear Sirs,

I’ve been a “Mail “and “Mail on Sunday “reader for over 40 x years and who has long since given up on watching or listening to anything that comes

via the mouthpieces of the BBC, ITV and Sky et al – such is the extreme level of bias, spin, in-accuracy and flagrant un-truth “s that they

spew forth and label as news, but which for anyone with eyes to see and half a dozen functioning brain cells can tell – is clearly pure and blatant propaganda.

Loathe as I am, I may very soon be binning the “Mail “and “M on S “as well, such is the venal drivel and false narrative that you are currently pushing where

Russia, Vladimir Putin, specifically – and this recent Skripal Poisoning is concerned. If it’s not perfectly clear to you already, I am not some tree hugging,

tin foil hat wearing, “Corbynsta Loving Trot “, NO – I “m a fairly right of centre Conservative, Brexit supporting individual who has never voted other than Tory, UKIP

Or for The Referendum Party in my whole life (61) – “BUT “- Who is interested in the truth via balanced, accurate and properly researched reporting, something

which your own two papers, the “mass media “in general + now that lame brained wet lettuce that “s our alleged Prime Minister and her blow hard cabal have all

clearly lost sight of. Whether this is just a case of absolute stupidity or a position (more likely) – that “s been taken to push a rather nefarious and fairly obvious agenda,

I don’t know for sure – but I rather think it must be the latter, given that you are all spouting the exact same nonsense at the exact same time as if it’s come

straight off the same tainted script – Courtesy of one or more of the “Name Brand – Western Intelligence Agencies “.


• Where is the notion of Jurisprudence in all of this whereby one should be considered innocent until proven guilty, and which Mr.s May, Boris, The Donald and every other

crap talking – talking head (including the truffle snuffling commissars of the EU) have conveniently forgotten and which allows them to finger Mr. Putin and the whole of

the people of Russia as the clear and only culprits in the Skripal poisoning. As they used to say in’the Sweeny “- “We’ve been fitted up Guv “- NO..??.

• Who Benefits?? : What is it in your tiny collective minds that makes you think that Mr. Putin (who is clearly nobody “s fool) would arrange to try and have Skripal and

his daughter killed only some 10 x days ahead of the Russian elections (though with an approval rating of 90% – why worry), and more especially barely 3 x months

ahead of “The World Cup “- He wouldn’t would he..??, and if he did – then most assuredly both Skripal and his daughter would now be guests of the local mortuary.

This is either a small time “False Flag “or the lead up to a vastly larger and far more deadly “False Flag “- all aimed at dis-crediting the Russians and demonising Putin per an image

of a latter day baby eating / blood sucking Dracula come Hitler type figure – something that he most assuredly isn’t. “Pure as the Driven “- possibly not, but nothing

remotely like the 2nd coming of Pol Pot, “Uncle Joe “or Chairman Mao – and far “Cleaner “than the, Clinton / Bush / Obama – Mafia crime gang.

Do you further think that any clear thinking Russian Assassin would be daft enough to use a Russian / Soviet Era developed Nerve Agent such as Novichok to draw maximum

attention…etc…,.etc. NO – they “d for use a far simpler / easier / cleaner methodology per chucking Skripal off the top of the local multi storey, run him over

with a big van – or easier still 9mm to the back of the head – Job Done and clear off home for the week end.

• Novichok: Furthermore, why does Mr.s May make the false assumption that because (allegedly – and she hasn’t sent any samples for Russian analysis) – as yet,

Skripal and daughter were poisoned by a Russian / Soviet nerve agent, that it therefore means conclusively that Putin and the Russians had to have done it – DOH…!!.

Remember that Kim Jong Un “s brother was recently murdered at an airport in Malaysia and this by use of a nerve agent. “SO “, what was the nerve agent that was

used out in Malaysia..???. It happened to be “VX “which was invented / developed by us only 7 x miles up the road from Salisbury at – Porton Down.

Given this and using Mr.s May “s false logic, it therefore stands to reason that as “VX “was developed here, that it actually had to be HM Government and

Theresa May specifically who must have been the brains behind that murder over in Malaysia…??? – You couldn’t make this up.

The simple fact of the matter is that Porton Down like any other national chemical / neurological research establishment, either already possesses Novichok

Or has the capacity and expertise with which to create it. Say again – Porton Down is only 7 x miles down the road from Salisbury – Think On.

Another thing to take on board is that Novichok was manufactured solely in what is now Uzbekistan and back in the 80 “s the dismantling, clean up and removal

and destruction of any stockpile of the Nerve Agent – Was supervised and over-seen by a U.S. company.

……….Food for Thought …??

• Why kill / try to kill Skripal now..??: The timing of this attempted killing has been partially detailed above – But think about this some more.

Skripal was convicted in a court of law as a double agent and given 13 x years before being pardoned and sent over here around 10 x years ago – Pretty lenient..??

“IF “Skripal had caused that much damage, then he “d have been shot back then and wouldn’t even seen the inside of any courtroom – would he..??.

The simple fact is that Putin / KGB / FSB, if they had been so severely wronged by Skripal, would have sent him on his way back in the day and not let

him shuffle around Salisbury for 10 x years, shopping at Tesco, eating at the local pizza parlour and having a swift half at the pub next door – before deciding

that his time was up and sending him on his way just ahead of the Russian elections and the World Cup. It’s far more likely and probable that he’s sat on the MI6

pension fund payroll for these years until a convenient time came along to make good and final use of him as a “Patsy “in a much bigger game – a small piece in a far larger jigsaw.

• Skripal (and Litvinenko): Skripal worked with Orbis Intelligence which is linked to Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele – the man who authored and put together

the completely false and now completely dis-credited “Trump Dossier “– The U.S “House intelligence Committee “after a 12 x month investigation has just come out to

say that there was absolutely no evidence what so ever to support any collusion between’the Russians “and Trump and absolutely no evidence that Putin nor

the Russian Government in anyway sought to interfere with the Trump election campaign – FACT. It could be that various other “Bad Actors “here had cause to

silence Skripal for possibly knowing more than he should – particularly as regards Hilliary Clinton and what “s known as the – “Uranium One “scandal that keeps popping up.

Never have heard a squeek about “Uranium 1. “in any of our mainstream broadcast or print media (Your papers included..??) – About time you did your homework – NO.

Remember also that Ex- military intelligence Colonels “Spooks “like Skripal and like his now dead compatriot Litvinenko (Putin also accused of his murder), were

working for (and double dealing on) various of the very, very shady UK resident Oligarch “s (notably the late and infamous Boris Berezovsky). These people are all

purported to be “Pals of Putin “where as in point of fact 90% + of them all ran over here to escape the wrath of Putin – who had been wanting to take many

more of them to court (Khordokovsky notably) and take back into state ownership the vast assets and resources that these people had stolen from – Mother Russia.

These people “Don’t Take Prisoners “and are also possible candidates in trying to bump off Skripal for their own reasons, albeit via simpler means than Novichok


Sensational (Stupid) headlines such as “RUSSIA COULD CRIPPLE UK “with risible comment from “Intelligence Chief, Sir Chris Deverell “saying

that – “Kremlin Agents could shut down power supplies, high jack air traffic control and (wait for it…!!) – disable air conditioning only go to prove that

“Sir Chris “should have woken up and smelt the coffee, 10 – 20 x years ago or may be he should cut down on his intake of Single Malt.

The operational and technical superiority of the Russian Military is eons ahead of anything we, Nato or the much vaunted US fighting machine has to hand.

We “The West “are literally years and years behind the Russians (Go On – Research it for yourselves. It’s all FACT).

The Russians have various nuclear powered missile systems, two capable of Mach 10, One capable of Mach 20, able to be armed with conventional

Or nuclear warheads + nuclear powered with unlimited range and capable of such extreme levels of speed and maneuverability that there are no missile

defence systems that either we or the blowhard – chickenshit / chickenhawks that inhabit the Pentagon can field to stop them – FACT. The other thing to point

out here is that after having flown tens of thousands of miles in literally minutes and blasted past any other combatants defence systems like the

proverbial “Knife through Hot Butter “- they then hit their target with pin point accuracy of – Plus or Minus 3 x Metres. Not bad for a bunch of

former tractor mechanics who “The West “have stupidly and unforgivably treated with such ignorance and disdain since the break up of the former Soviet Union.

All UK / US and NATO missile defence systems have now been rendered obsolete and useless. All the Carrier Groups that the USA sends all over the world to bully every

Other nation under the sun who doesn’t kowtow to “Uncle Sam “s “demands are now not much more than expensive “Sitting Ducks “that Putin (If he wanted to)

could send to the bottom of Davey Jones locker – at will. Add to this the electronic jamming and disabling system that the Russians have got and which completely

disables all warship electronics systems – notably the latest American “Aegis “missile defence and control systems.

Take a look on line for – USS “Donald Cook “where you might see how back in 2014 one of the USA “s latest and most advanced warships, was whilst in

The Black Sea (close to Russia) was overflown by an SU- 24 “fighter of the Russian air force which carried no guns, cannons or bombs at all and had just

an “Electronic Warfare Pod “underneath and which when activated “Triggered an Incident “(in the words of the Pentagon) that so demoralised the crew

of the good- ship “USS Donald Cook “that they felt compelled to make a formal complaint to Moscow (Poor Dears..!!)

“SO “- What exactly was this “Incident “- It was that after having been over-flown by the SU-24, that the “USS Donald Cook “was now completely Dead in the

Water with all its radar and missile defence and activation systems having been completely disabled (FRYED), unable to steer and unable to activate any propulsion systems

and just sat there having swiftly become an immobile and defenceless floating Hulk that “The Evil Mr. Putin “could have sent to the bottom (if he “d wanted to) – and at will.

This example of US naval might then had to be towed by tug boat into a Romanian port out of harm “s way and where the crew doubtless received counselling.

Keep in mind that this level of military / technological superiority has been achieved by the Russians despite spending less than a tenth on their military,

than does the USA with a budget currently at some, $ 700 – $ 800 Billion Dollars (That “s Billion with a “B “) and which is over 10 x the combined defence budgets of


This makes it pretty clear that the American Tax Payer is being fleeced / taken to the cleaners by their Government, their Defence (War) Department and the

“Military Industrial Complex “that greases the palm of every politician and military officer who can sanction another mega cash payment from their budgets.

Still I suppose the USA has got such wonderful toys as the Lockheed Martin F35 Joint Strike Aircraft (Commonly known as – “The Flying Brick “) which

At a cost of $ 1.5 Trillion and Counting) – has been dubbed the most expensive and error ridden project in US Military history. An aircraft which is so

aeronautically unstable that it can’t stay in the air without computer assistance, which is proven to be out-flown by aircraft designs from the 70 “s,

where over half have now been taken out of service as their computers continually fail and no up grades are available as yet and where any Pilot of over

150 pounds in weight stands a 95% + chance of having his neck broken if forced to activate and use the ejector seat – GREAT…!!

Each one of these “Lemons “has thus far cost something in the region of – $ 95 Million Dollars each.

The CEO of Lockheed-Martin (A Lady) earns over $ 25 Million Dollars a year – “Money for Jam “or rather – “Money for Flying Bricks “.

Think about it – this single shit laden example of an entirely useless U.S. defence programme has thus far cost over $ 1.5 Trillion Dollars which equates to around

The same amount that the Russians have spent – On their ENTIRE Defence and Military requirements – over the past 20 + Years or so…..!!!!.

It’s a case of “Spot the Mugs “(The US Tax Payer) who “d better wake up and jettison the “Establishment “who are fleecing them at every tiff and turn,

and before their economy (what a joke) sinks to an even lower than it stands at already with its massive and un-sustainable debt load that can never be repaid.

“IF “Putin wanted to take over the UK – (which he doesn’t – nor anywhere else and as he’s stated a number of times) – then you “d be a complete fool to think that he

couldn’t do this in much more than week or so. The Russians have had the ability to – “Cripple the UK “for years and years – it’s not something that has

just come about and unless something is very wrong, it’s not something that should have only appeared in “Sir Chris Deverell “s “In- Box in just the last couple of weeks.




The above are some more of the hysterical, in-accurate, un-warranted and inflammatory headlines and headings from your papers.

These are an object lesson in wilful ignorance and a complete and utter denial of objective reality. For the sake of humanity you “d better wake up and start telling the truth

Do you ever think to ask:-

WHY – Would Putin and Russia ever want to invade the UK or Any Other Country for that matter and to what end..???

WHAT – Do we have that he hasn’t got already (and in spades) – ANSWER – NOTHING


• Russia at 6,592.800 Sq Miles occupies – 1 x Eighth of the landmass of the entire Planet it covers 13 x time zones and is so

vast that you could fit the entirety of Europe within it 4 x over with room to spare and you could – fit the UK inside it 72 x over…!!

Do you therefore think that Mr. Putin is feeling claustrophobic to the extent that he wants to add the UK + Poland, The Baltic States and anywhere

else for that matter to his existing list of headaches and that he’s having anxiety attacks due to lack of space..?? – GET REAL

• Russia is self sufficient in Energy with huge amounts of Oil and LNG reserves with vast spare capacity to export – Are We..?? – NO and North Sea Oil is depleting rapidly

• Russia will be self sufficient in all food and agricultural products within 3 x Years – Are We – Clearly Not as we are reliant on imports and big time

• Russia has a flat rate of Income Tax at 13% – What do we Pay on average..?? – Certainly not 13% – Think On

• Europe and the UK (likely) would freeze were it not for winter supplies of Russian Gas, From – “The Evil Mr. Putin “- Good idea to insult him and make false accusations then

• Russia (as of Sept 2017) and in terms of External Debt is ranked 21st in the world owing, $ 540 Billion which is 40% of GDP and equates to $ 3,700 Per Head of Population

• The UK (as of Sept 2017) and in terms of External Debt is ranked 2nd in the world owing, $ 7.85 Trillion which is 283% of GDP and equates to $ 119,000 Per Head of Population

• “SO “Who do you think has the far healthier and expanding economy. Is it the UK..??? – FAT CHANCE as we are in real terms flat broke and insolvent.

• RUSSIAN SANCTIONS: Here “s another one which is so laughable it’s enough to make you weep.


The Americans impose endless sanctions on Russia (as with many other countries) to bring them to their knees economically speaking and to

punish Russia for its “blatant aggression “- What aggression as Russia has neither threatened nor invaded anyone – FACT.

Set against this the fact that the, USA has 954 x Military bases and upwards of 400 – 500,000 personnel in some 120 x Foreign Countries.

Russia has. 5 x Overseas Military bases – all in Countries where they were asked to come in by their respective governments.

Who – Invaded Iraq based on lies about “WMD “and the sexed up Dossier – killing 1,000,000 Iraqis, displacing 4,000,000 more and bombing the country back into the Stone Age..?

Who – Invaded Libya based on lies, causing the death and displacement of hundreds of thousands and bombing what was formerly the richest county in Africa into the Stone Age..?

Who – Created a Proxy War in Syria, killing and displacing millions and reducing a thriving, secular country to ruins and almost into the hands of a bunch of

Head chopping ISIS – USA backed Islamic Fundamentalists – Who are being defeated due to Russian and Syrian Government Military action – alone

Who – Via Victoria Nuland and $ 5 Billion Dollars of USA / NGO Finance – Fermented the – Illegal Coup in Ukraine – CIA / USA with tacit EU support – FACT

Who – Accused Russia of Invading Crimea, when not one bullet was fired, not one shell exploded and when in point of fact the population of Crimea, who

Incidentally are all Russian speaking ethnic Russians asked to be taken back into “The Russian Federation “. Putin didn’t just say yes, he organised

a referendum overseen by 2 x Sets of International Observers who confirmed that no threats or coercion took place and whereby in a massive polling

turn out, the Crimean populati0n voted 90% + to rejoin their “Mother Land “- RUSSIA…

Who – Is currently involved (USA) in a, proxy war in Yemen, in support of the Saudis killing thousands and reducing the place to rubble.

You fail to see (deliberately so..??) who the real “Elephant in the Room “happens to be. It’s clearly the Hegemon that is the USA and its cabal of vassal states,

ourselves, the EU and others included, and whereby the USA sees itself as a “Hammer “and any nation state that doesn’t do exactly what it wants it therefore sees

as a “Nail “- To be bombed into the stone age, suffer regime change and have its citizenry murdered and displaced – IN THEIR MILLIONS.

The US is keen to tell everyone that they are “The Exceptional Nation “and “The Exceptional People “- They’re exceptional alright and disgustingly so, but really only

for exporting death, debt and destruction + their crooked dollar reserve standard to all four corners of the Earth.

It’s not, RUSSIA / CHINA and IRAN who comprise some latter day “Axis of Evil “- NO, you’ve only got to look closer to home and then across the pond

to the dregs of humanity who make up the “American Deep State “to find the true aggressors with their hands dripping in blood and who are responsible

for virtually every criminal war and un-warranted military intervention and the destruction of nation states and their people since World War II.


SO – With the USA having imposed countless “sanctions “on Putin and Russia + trying to destroy their financial system and deny them access to the Swift system,

what then is the net result – Is Putin and Russia now ruined and begging for the sanctions to be lifted – NO, quite the reverse in fact.

The Americans never really suffered any financial business losses through the imposition of the sanctions as they did precious little trade with Russia anyway.

NO – it was left primarily to the “EU “to lose billions in trade as like the vassal state / American lackey – lap dogs that they are, they agreed to impose sanctions

when the USA told them to (Obama says – Jump and the EU responds – how high sir). SO – all the machine tools, computer systems, heavy engineering

and machine tool sales that Germany had with Russia – evaporated overnight with the slack taken up by the Chinese and the massive sales of salad crops,

Wines, cheeses, meat and myriad other agricultural products that the likes of France./ Spain / Portugal / Italy and Greece et al, all did with Russia was also

replaced within days / weeks with imports from Brazil, South America and elsewhere + the Russians themselves have massively expanded their own

agricultural system and heavy engineering and technical business “s – to provide as much as they need from within and so not to be held to ransom by others – Win…WIN…WIN.

There you have it then, the bully boy Americans impose sanctions that don’t directly affect them but which effectively serve to further impoverish

the stupid boot licking Europeans who can’t see farther than the noses on their faces and who have lost billions in business – Which they “ll not get back anytime soon – if ever

I have gone on at far greater length than intended, but just hope (if you read this) – that you will swiftly realise that the best way to slow down or reverse the

decline of electronic mass media and the printed word – Is to stop lying to your readership and stop printing the patent rubbish that you for sure have regards Putin and Russia

“IF “you keep this up and don’t change the way you treat the news – then you will go the way of “The DODO “- swiftly and deservedly so.


You should realise that this false narrative, with it’s falsehoods and in-accuracies that you, the media, our government, the Americans and the Europeans are spewing

forth to demonise the Russians, and which has been essentially going on continually since the fall of the Soviet Union – is very dangerous and could possibly be a tipping

point that could provoke a War. Nobody wins in an exchange of thermo-nuclear weapons as you are then in the realms of, “M.A.D. “- Mutually Assured Destruction

whereby life on earth and we all get wiped out – IS THIS A GOOD IDEA..?? – IS THIS WHAT YOU ALL WANT..?? – ARE YOU STARK RAVING BONKERS..??

A very, wise and learned man who is one of the World “s foremost Geo-Political and Russian experts has just written an article – “When dealing with a Bear, Hubris is Suicidal “

This just about says it all and you would do well to look out this article and take it all on board.

Mr.. Putin follows Theodore Roosevelts dictum – “Speak softly and carry a big stick “and has shown exceptional restraint and patience in the face of all this crap that “s thrown at him.

I think it’s about time that “The West “woke up to the reality of all that “s gone on and stops baiting this Bear, before he turns round and with one swipe – takes your head off.

Yours faithfully,

Hypersonic Weapons And Your Standard Of Living…?
March 16, 2018

Do you believe there is any coincidence the Russians first, followed by the Chinese … announced “hypersonic weapons”? I ask this question for several reasons and will come to a conclusion at the end but for now, with the rollout of the “petro-yuan” set for March 26 is there any coincidence we find out about these weapons now?

We were even offered proof over the weekend of successful tests. If that were not enough, what heck is this? Please take the two minutes to watch the video, these are seasoned Navy pilots who sound like 15 year old boys seeing their first naked woman! The point being, they have never seen ANYTHING even close to this, no one has. What exactly did they see? Was it a UFO? Some sort of alien technology? Or, was it exactly what the Russians and Chinese have claimed?

Defense News suggests the U.S. is also working on these same weapons and asks “will it be in time“? I would ask another question and maybe more to the point, can the U.S. afford to fund a project like this? The answer of course is yes (they can afford ANY thing today), but then another question arises. What does the additional spending do on the margin to a system already walking a fiscal tightrope? Please remember this …because I can guarantee you all Russians remember, the U.S. “spent” the Russians into bankruptcy in the late 1980’s with “Star Wars”. The Russians tried to keep up technologically and were bankrupted (with a little CIA help pressing on the ruble). The worm has now turned 180 degrees with the U.S. in precarious fiscal and monetary position …AND very little gold left. The Russians and Chinese as you know have been methodically accumulating gold for 10 years or now and most likely have three times what the U.S. supposedly has. They have not accumulated gold because it is pretty, they understand gold IS money…!

Bill Holter’s Commentary

I guess for some it comes down to “who’s your Daddy”? A little research into Mr. Biden’s son will lead you to the Ukraine and energy…wait, didn’t they have a coup a few years back? Surely the U.S. did not “meddle” there…?

Inside The Shady Private Equity Firm Run By Kerry And Biden’s Kids
March 15, 2018

My frustration,” writes Peter Schweizer in his new book, “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends,” “is not that the solid reporting on Trump has been too tough, but that the reporting on the Obama administration has been way too soft or in some cases nonexistent.” The author of the 2016 sensation “Clinton Cash” says Trump and his children didn’t invent the blurring of government and business, and details a number of ethical violations on both sides of the political aisle. One example: the little-noticed private equity firm run by the sons of Democrats Joe Biden and John Kerry, as detailed in this exclusive first excerpt.

Joe Biden and John Kerry have been pillars of the Washington establishment for more than 30 years. Biden is one of the most popular politicians in our nation’s capital.


Jim Sinclair’s Commentary

Some logic and statistics seem not to be in accord.

That, however, is the new normal.
