Epstein’s ‘Little Black Book’

The MSM coverage of the supposed suicide last weekend of the earlier convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein has been embarrassing, to say the least. This from the BBC:

Just hours after the high-profile financier Jeffrey Epstein was found dead on Saturday, unsubstantiated theories about his death began to gain traction online

And likewise from the Guardian:

Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide in a US federal jail has launched a range of conspiracy theories online, fuelled by Epstein’s ties to princes, politicians and other famous and powerful people

Notice how alike the narrative is here, which I would say goes to show that two once respected UK media organisations are now nothing more than tentacles of a mafia state known as the USA. The MSM really have gone beyond a joke (a joke very familiar to anyone who used to live in the old Soviet Union), but thankfully the so-called ‘alternate media’ grows ever bigger (which is why the psychopaths who rule us are trying to heavily censor the internet) and there’s been a vast amount of sane commentary about Epstein’s supposed suicide. I’m not going to try to add to that commentary, except to say that last Friday, the day before Epstein apparently committed suicide, a federal court in New York made public a slew of documents from a 2015 defamation case involving Epstein. These court documents are a fascinating read and if interested you can find them here. I want to hone in on just one of these documents, which is Epstein’s contacts book, which you can find here. It’s all in alphabetical order by surname, so just think of any big name you want and see if they’re in Epstein’s ‘little black book’ (you’ll find the likes of Tony Blair, Peter Mandelson, Alastair Campbell and Mick Jagger in there, along with a whole host of other celebs); and bear in mind that a decade ago Epstein was arrested and then convicted of paedophile crimes.

It all smacks of Jimmy Savile again, and once again the cockroaches in the media will do everything they can to sweep it under the carpet.

We really do need the modern day equivalent of the Nuremburg trials.

Update on the Gilets Jaunes

I can’t say too much about how things stand at the present (because we now live in what are effectively police states). If you want a good resource article about what’s happening in France you can find it here…


Likewise the Sakar has also done a piece on it, albeit from a different angle…


As someone who’s lived in rural France for almost two decades I can give you a lot more accurate stuff than the above two links. Problem is, it’s now like living in Nazi Germany during the late 1930s (please read my first link).

As The World Falls Down

I’ve been a bit silent on this blog of late, and not because there’s any lack of things to comment about, not least the USUK psychopath’s determination to start a war with Iran, a war that is all built on a complete pack of lies. This is just the latest in a very long list of USUK psychopath lies going back over many decades, lies that are all reinforced by the equally psychopathic presstitutes.

Talking of which, we’ve just had the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landings. Did the moon landings really happen..? (see the preceding paragraph) For a five-year-old child the question is somewhat mute. In 1969 my parents had a big black and white tv set; and yippee, there were now three different channels we could watch! although the channels only put out a broadcast from about 4pm to midnight. During July 1969 there was a quite amazing thing to see on the tv, and all the channels covered it. The Apollo 11 mission was the first strong memory that I have, when humans first apparently walked on the moon. The BBC covered the event with an 11 hour broadcast throughout the night of 20th and early morning of 21st July (such a broadcast was unheard of at the time). Part of this live coverage included a group called Pink Floyd. Pink Floyd performed an instrumental piece called ‘Moonhead’, right there in the BBC studio alongside a panel of scientists and commentators (no, I’m not making this up). As a five-year-old child, I watched the tv coverage totally gobsmacked, because I was half able to understand what was going on: those grainy pictures of men in space suits, seemingly bouncing around in dusty slow motion on a glowing orb that hung in the night sky.

Four years later, and with absolutely no connection to that night in 1969, except that it’s a good story, Pink Floyd released an album called ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’. This brings me onto Rob’s Radio Hour, a series of hour long radio programmes hosted by moi, in which I rabbited on about and played my favourite music. Each Radio Hour featured an album, and played about five tracks from it. The rest of the hour was spaced out with an eclectic mix of music from across the decades. Radio Hour No.10, which was broadcasted in August 2010, featured Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’. Also in the programme are tracks by the likes of The Smiths, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Billy Bragg and a whole host of others that many listeners have probably never heard of. During the intros and outros I give a brief history of each track. If interested you can find Rob’s Radio Hour No.10 below (it’s probably the only one in which I sound half-way professional). The file is in mp3 format and will stream on your media player. Click on the link to listen to the programme. If the link doesn’t work on your browser, right click on it and from the menu select ‘Open in new window’. The programme is offered in either CD quality, if you have a fast internet connection, or Radio quality if you have a slow connection…

Galloway and Hedges Chew the Cud

Before I get onto this week’s interview that Chris Hedges did with George Galloway, I should mention that this weekend was Acte 35 of the gilets jaunes protests; ie, the 35th consecutive week of protests, not just in Paris but all over France. Yesterday, Sunday 14th July was Bastille Day, which is probably the biggest public holiday in France. President Macron took part in a military parade on the Champs Elysees, and was roundly booed…

After the parade violence broke out and the police almost beat one of the protestors to death; this on the streets of one of the most iconic cities in western Europe. Such police brutality has been a hallmark of the last 35 weeks in France. On this Bastille day weekend there have been mass arrests of people associated with the gilets jaunes movement. None of this gets reported by the presstitutes…

I have a lot to say about all this, but I’m too tired at the moment. So instead let’s have George Galloway being interviewed by Chris Hedges on his On Contact programme. Galloway and Hedges are virtually on the same page, politically speaking, but that doesn’t make their conversation any less interesting…

Divas – Hope and Hannah

Last Thursday, 4th July, President Trump gave an Independence Day speech in which he claimed that in the 1700s, more than 300 years ago, there were airports and airplanes; but I think I’ve done enough ‘batshit crazy’ posts for the time being. I will just add, though, that very few of the presstitutes reported on this gobsmacking statement by the President of the United States. I think I should either go lay in a darkened room, or have some music…

‘Mazzy Star’ is an American alternative rock band formed in Santa Monica, California, in 1989. Arguably, founding member David Robeck set up the band to showcase the singing talent of Hope Sandoval. The band’s most famous song is probably Fade Into You, and here’s Mazzy Star performing it live way back in 1994…

Hope Sandoval was born in Los Angeles in 1966 into a large Mexican-American family. Aside from her musical talent, a remarkable thing about Hope Sandoval is her shyness – she must be one of the shyest people ever to stand on a stage. During the early days of Mazzy Star, Hope would often hide behind her long hair while performing, to avoid eye contact with the audience. This song is called Flowers in December

Mazzy Star achieved moderate success during the former part of the 1990s until the band went on hiatus in 1997. Hope Sandoval then formed her own band called ‘The Warm Inventions’. Sandoval also toured and collaborated with other artists, including Massive Attack and The Jesus and Mary Chain. In 2011 Mazzy Star reformed and in 2013 put out an album called ‘Seasons of Your Day’. The first single release from this album is called California. Hope Sandoval has never overcome her shyness and prefers to perform in near-darkness with only a dim backlight. More than two decades separate Fade Into You from California, which was released when Hope was knocking 50 years old. In all that time you’ll be hard pushed to find any interviews that Hope has given. Mazzy Star are still making music today and now well into her 50s Hope Sandoval remains a beautiful woman, and of course incredibly shy…

This brings me on to diva number two, Hannah Reid. In much the same way that Mazzy Star was formed to showcase Hope Sandoval, the band ‘London Grammar’ was formed in 2009 to showcase the musical talents of Hannah Reid, who was born in London in 1989. Hannah Reid also suffers from stage fright, although she’s nowhere near as bad as Hope Sandoval in this respect. The following is a session that London Grammar did for KEXP in Seattle back in 2013. This was during the early years of the band (who are still going) and gives an indication of what they are about. Hope and Hannah: you can’t beat beautiful, talented women on a Sunday afternoon. I’m sure Donald Trump will enjoy all this…

Batshit Crazies – Part Two

Earlier this week Associated Press and Reuters purposely mistranslated a speech by Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani. They made it sound as if Rouhani had insulted President Donald Trump, calling him ‘mentally retarded’. Rouhani never said that, but here’s how Trump reacted…

With regard to the present sorry state of western politics (with the American Empire in its dying days) it’s both hard to take things seriously, and to figure out what’s actually going on. The Donald ranted and raved about North Korea in a similar manner last year, but despite the threats of US military action nothing actually happened. There was similar stuff with Syria. Is it all bluff and bluster (ie, bullshit)? Likewise, last year the US Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) stated for the first time new scenarios in which nuclear threats would be considered. The NPR lists non-nuclear attacks that could constitute grounds for US nuclear retaliation. Under the new NPR, a conventional attack which results in mass casualties or targets key infrastructure could trigger a nuclear response. Once again, is this all bluff and bluster? Well, Washington is stuffed full of batshit crazies (see my previous post) and who knows what they are capable of, particularly since most of them are Christian evangelists eagerly awaiting The Rapture (this includes the likes of Mike Pompeo and John Bolton). And people in the West are told that the Iranians are a bunch of religious nutters. Ha!

One thing is fairly certain: if America starts a war with Iran it will be taking on a formidable adversary, an adversary that has even more formidable allies. There’s no way that America can win a conventional war against Iran; but America has recently stated that it will launch first use nuclear weapons, particularly in a conventional conflict that it can’t win. Have I mentioned batshit crazies..? If America uses nuclear weapons against Iran all bets are off the table. We can only hope that it’s just all more bluff and bluster from a dying Empire, an Empire absolutely soaked in blood and ruled by some of the most evil people who have ever walked this planet.

This brings me on to Dmitri Shostakovich, and in particular his Symphony No.8, written in 1943 during the height of the bloody fighting between the Russians and the Germans. Symphony No.8 is all about war and the fear of war and seems quite apt now in 2019. Do we ever learn..?

Batshit Crazies

Apparently, last night the Americans came within an inch of attacking targets in Iran:

Donald Trump ‘cancelled Iran strikes with planes in the air’. Military operation reportedly called off, as Democrats warn US could ‘bumble into’ war

I say ‘apparently’ because these strikes were supposed to be in retaliation for a US spy drone that the Iranians shot down earlier in the day. Given the prominence that the presstitutes have given to these cancelled strikes it seems likely that the story is a face saving exercise for Trump & Co (ie, they never intended to take military action), and also to make them appear ‘reasonable’ (reasonable..? the people that Trump surrounds himself with should all be in straitjackets). Even without any military action from the Americans, Iran has already threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz. This after the Americans unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal (known as the JCPOA) last year and increased the already mega economic sanctions, in an attempt to prevent Iran from exporting its oil. The recent attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman could well have been the work of the Iranians, to show that they’re serious about stopping the passage of tankers. Economic sanctions are just another form of warfare, and sanctions kill people just like a hot war does (the sanctions imposed in the run up to the invasion of Iraq, for instance, killed a huge number of people, including half a million children). From the noises coming out of Tehran over the last year it’s obvious that the Iranians have reached the end of their tether. American actions have cornered Iran, and we all know how dangerous a cornered animal can be.

So what would happen if the Iranians close the Strait of Hormuz and prevent tanker traffic in the Gulf of Oman? Well, 30% of the world’s tanker traffic passes through this region. Most analysts agree that if this traffic were stopped the price of oil would go through the roof, possibly reaching as much as $1000 a barrel (and if America starts a war with Iran in an attempt to keep the oil flowing the result would be the same). This would tank the American economy, which in turn would bring down the world banking system and lead to a global depression the like of which has never been seen before. It’s called playing with fire. The Americans must be aware of all this, but the problem is that Washington is stuffed full of batshit crazies…

It’s Iran Wot Dunnit

Moon of Alabama disagrees with the consensus in the alternate media, and states that Iran might well have been responsible for the attacks this week on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman. Who knows..? What I do know is that there is going to be another big war sometime soon (and it might come from an unexpected direction), because we consent to allow psychopaths to rule us, which always means the ongoing destruction of the planet and endless wars.

On a less depressing note, let’s have some more of John Betjeman, this time messing around on trains in Norfolk in the 1960s. Having been born in 1964 (2 days before the Vietnam War officially kicked-off, following the Gulf of Tonkin false flag) I can just about remember this era of British Railways and steam trains. I don’t want to romanticise these times, because the psychos who rule Britain were back then involved in a number of vicious conflicts around the world as part of the retreat from Empire. I suppose my rose tinted glasses are because British society did seem to be a bit more civil back then…

Cold Wars and Cold Shoulders

Last weekend marked the 30th consecutive week of gilets jaunes protests (Acte 30). At my local roundabout on the autoroute there were about 20 gilets jaunes on the roadside, as there has been ever since these protests started last November. This in all weathers and despite the fact that the roadside protests have been banned in many parts of France. The violence meted out by the police against the gilets jaunes continues unabated. During Acte 30 some of the worst violence occurred in Montpellier, which is in the south of France…

When it comes to civil rights things are little better on the other side of the Channel:

MI5 accused of ‘extraordinary and persistent illegality’

And in America they’re even passing a law where you can potentially be arrested and charged for just thinking about committing a crime. Yup, this one is straight out of 1984, including the legal gobbledygook which tries to cloak what’s going on with HR 838…

a national strategy to prevent targeted violence through behavioral threat assessment and management, and for other purposes.

All of this is against the backdrop of last week’s D-Day commemorations. Macron, May and Trump were on parade, mouthing the usual platitudes such as ‘they died to give us our freedom’. Ha! The Russians, of course, were not invited to the commemorations, despite the fact that if it were not for the Red Army and the tremendous sacrifice of the Russian people we would probably all be speaking German now (depending on whose estimates you go on, anywhere between 30 and 40 million Russians were killed during World War Two). ‘Surreal’ is not the word for the D-Day commemorations.

But it wasn’t always so surreal. In the two or three decades after World War Two there did seem to be some morality in politics, at least on the surface. President John F Kennedy had many faults (not least his handling of the escalating conflict in Vietnam) but he is generally taken to be ‘a good guy’. I am reminded of what is probably Kennedy’s most famous speech. Known formally as the ‘American University Speech’, but more widely known as the ‘Peace Speech’, it’s an address he gave to graduating students at the American University in June 1963; this not much more than 9 months after the Cuban Missile Crisis. In the speech President Kennedy is articulate, intelligent and well-rounded (for the era) as he holds out an olive branch to the Soviets and acknowledges the tremendous sacrifice that the Russian people made during World War Two. Have I mentioned Macron, May and Trump..? who are like five-year-olds on LSD by comparison. The following is an excerpt from Kennedy’s Peace Speech. Five months after making this speech President Kennedy was assassinated. It’s a funny old world, isn’t it…

JFK’s complete Peace Speech can be found here.

As an aside, President Khrushchev was deeply impressed by Kennedy’s Peace Speech and allowed it be broadcast and published freely in the Soviet Union without any censorship. This was most unusual for back then.

The Freedom and Democracy Car Crash

Yesterday President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Theresa May gave a 30 minute long press conference that was both astonishing and embarrassing in large measure. Well, perhaps not so astonishing for those who take a close interest in what really goes on in this world. The embarrassing part comes from watching two low IQ psycho puppets (May looked like she was on the verge of a nervous breakdown) mouthing blatant lies and the usual hoary old cliches, such as the ‘freedom and democracy’ rollocks. A small number of questions were taken from some of the premier presstitutes, in an attempt to give some credence to the charade. No one mentioned the plight of Julian Assange during this so-called ‘press conference’.

With regard to free speech, today we’ve had this: ABC raid: Outcry as Australian police search public broadcaster and earlier this week it was announced that George Galloway has been sacked from his gig on UK TalkRadio. Galloway has been under starter’s orders for quite a while now, following complaints about his comments on the Salisbury ‘poisoning’ and the anti-semitism witch hunt. According to Galloway, TalkRadio haven’t paid him for the last two months, and last week they sacked his producer. Shortly after being sacked, George Galloway appeared on Good Morning Britain, where he was squared-up against Lord Alan Sugar. As well as the points I’m trying to make about freedom of speech, this is car crash television and is well worth a watch…

I’ve mentioned here two high profile instances of the ever encroaching police state. The assault on freedom of speech is happening all across the board, and particularly in the so-called ‘alternative media’ (you can find a recent example here). Some would say that George Galloway has been foolish to throwaway such a mainstream platform as TalkRadio (arguably he was the last independent voice in the mainstream media); but on the otherhand, the presstitutes are now such a joke that maybe George has timed this just right. He has a huge following on social media and has said that his radio show will be back on the alternative media.

Chemical Gina and Julia Assange

There’s been rumours flying around for a number of weeks now that the security services (those jolly chaps in MI5 and the CIA, et al) have been administering psychotropic drugs to Julian Assange in Belmarsh Prison, in London. Today there’s been many reports that Julian Assange is ‘gravely ill’ and has been moved to the hospital wing of Belmarsh Prison. Are they trying to kill him..? Who knows, although my take on it is that the psychopaths who rule us would prefer to make an example of Julian Assange, rather than simply snuff him out. Oh, and as an aside, I wonder if British people are aware that MI5 agents can now murder anyone they wish on the streets of Britain without any legal redress whatsoever. The security services are totally out of control and without any proper oversight at all.

But getting back to Julian Assange, an MI5 agent by the name of David Shayler was also banged up in Belmarsh Prison. This was back in the early 2000s. Shayler was prosecuted under the Official Secrets Act for revealing that a British security service plot to kill Colonel Gaddafi in Libya resulted in a large number of innocent civillians being killed. David Shayler spent 3 weeks in Belmarsh Prison (followed by 5 weeks in Ford Open Prison). After serving his time, Shayler became ‘a bit strange’, describing himself as ‘the son of God’ and adopting a transvestite alter ego called Delores Kane. Does this have shades of Chelsea Manning? (although the official story states that Manning came out as transgender before doing prison time in the US). Don’t be surprised if Julian Assange starts describing himself as ‘Julia’ and starts wearing lipstick and stockings and suspenders.

Remember, we are ruled by psychopaths.

Au Revoir Treason May

Almost three years ago, shortly after a referendum that asked for Brexit, the then Prime Minister David Cameron stood at a podium outside No.10 Downing Street and announced that he was resigning. After giving a short speech, Cameron turned and made his way back into No.10. He was whistling a tune, although it was hard to hear above all the camera clicks. As he got to the door of No.10 he began humming the tune…

This morning Cameron’s successor Prime Minister Theresa May also stood at a podium outside No.10 and announced her resignation. May spoke for about six minutes, and finished in tears. There’s much in what May said, not least the Jewish/anti-semitic angle, climate change and the Grenfell Tower fire, but I’ll leave it to others to interpret all this, because there’s been reams written about Treason May today. Not surprisingly, the Establishment have been fawning over our soon to resign Prime Minister. Getting back to David *don’t mention pigs* Cameron, his response to the resignation has been typical…

Theresa May’s resignation announcement comes hot on the heels of news that last year’s Douma chemical attack was a false flag event, a false flag that gave Theresa May, along with the US and France, the excuse to drop lots of bombs on Syria, killing a large number of people. Also, yesterday the criminal psychos who run the USA announced a huge number of espionage charges against Julian Assange, charges that could result in Assange being sentenced to 175 years in jail, simply for telling the truth and lifting the stone to reveal these cockroaches.

I thought that one of the best responses to Theresa May’s resignation today was from Afshin Rattansi. I find this clip to be quite funny, because the presenter keeps trying to shut down Rattansi, no doubt fearing a lawsuit or action by OffCom. Everything that Rattansi says here is true. Go look it up if you don’t believe me…

A French Lawyer Speaks Out (Again)

In a previous post I featured a video put out by a French lawyer called Georgia Pouliquen. The video was English language and featured some of the violence being meted out during the gilets jaunes (yellow vests) protests. Georgia Pouliquen lived just down the road from me (in Limoges). She’s now had to flee France for fear of persecution. Georgia Pouliquen is now in the UK (she must be mad, thinking that the UK is any safer) and gave a talk at Ian Crane’s recent Alternative View (AV) 10 conference. The embed that follows is well worth a watch, because this kind of state violence will be coming to your western country sometime soon, if you try to resist. I will follow it with some quick vids from the demonstration last weekend, Acte 27, which whilst comparatively peaceful in Paris saw major (police) violence in places like Reims and Toulouse…

Gatekeepers and Propagandists

Any well-connected blogger who does not mention what’s going on in France at the moment is either a gatekeeper and/or a propagandist…


It’s really that simple.

Likewise, all bloggers who ban links back to me are also gatekeepers/propagandists.

The world is in a very terrible state at the moment.

Fuck the scum, let’s have some music…

More About the Gilets Jaunes

Perchance, shortly before I made my previous post about the gilets jaunes, Russia Today (RT) put out a documentary about them. You can compare this with another documentary from Deutsche Welle (DW), Germany’s international broadcaster, called France’s yellow rebellion – a movement against Macron. It’s all propaganda, but I can tell you, as someone who lives in France, that the DW documentary is not very accurate, whereas the RT documentary is bang on the mark…

Note: I’m using Twitter more and more to embed videos because using YouTube directly is becoming so restricted/censored.
