A few snippets from Mark Steyn tonight : "We can use public health to control people's lives and now they want to use food to do this."

 

Guest - Ava: "They're the ones destroying the farms and the land"

 

Mark: "Will people go along with this?"

 

Ava: "They all gave up their rights on the pretext of covid ... Our Dutch farmers do not believe it (climate) and they're still fighting, and support is growing for them ... Now Trudeau is doing it too ... The elites will be able to fly, but not you if you let this happen ... Stay in your apartment, have your delivery ... Bill Gates synthetic food ... they numb you."

 

Mark: "We're going to get the windows 98 version of diet. We were talking about whether there was going to be climate lockdowns ... They're planning to cut fertiliser use by 30% ... When they use the farmland for refugees (one day) ... They're now using climate change to curtail your movement and they're doing it fast ... Whatever happened to the ozone ... it used to be about spray on deodorant ... They closed the hole in the ozone layer, and apparently this is responsible for global warming ... shall we open it up again ..."

Police probe 'incredibly disturbing' Berry Head attack claim

I don't even need to read that article to know where this goes.

 

The police 'probe' amounts to nothing more than posting an update on Twitter (which gets copy-pasted by the local Reach Plc news-rag) along with an 'appeal for witnesses' to come forward, as well as an appeal for anyone with CCTV footage to share it.

 

The police then sit back and wait. The investigation then gets 'dropped' due to 'lack of evidence', as no-one bothers to come forward.

 

If comments aren't already allowed on the article, Reach Plc disables and removes the comments, following a furious backlash from the public.

 

Oh and by the way, this article likely only appeared on this Reach Plc site, because their 'journalists' are members of these local groups on Facebook, and use such posts as 'content' for their click-bait articles.

 

I know this for a fact because a couple of years ago, there was a reported shooting on the estate where I live, and after posting a couple of comments on a post in the local Facebook group, I was contacted privately by a Birmingham Mail 'journalist' who basically asked me if I could send her some photos of the scene and more details on what I could see.

 

These Reach journalists are just ghouls and only interested in providing click-bait for their employers. They wouldn't know how to do any kind of 'investigation' into what was really going on. Because you wouldn't get any straight answer from the police either.

 

"There was an incident, which is being investigated".

 

That is not enough for me!

 

What the hell is going on... start here:

sunak also increased the money supply by a third in two years causing inflation which basically means that EVERYONES money can now buy less things. So he robbed from us all.

 

No matter how they try to sell the idea to us it is only about CONTROL pure and simple:

 

I still find it remarkable to actually hear him say with a straight face that there's no more money, and that our children's children will be paying the debt (paraphrasing) Is anyone writing this script down?!

IMF says global economy is heading towards recession. 

 

I recall the IMF saying spend, spend, spend. (Using the triple word slogan)

 

You notice these things when you know you're being set up / stitched up.

 

I thought borrowing was cheap ... and we might never have to pay it back 😆

I believe they've refused to define a recession..... Go figure.

Sharon Davies on outrage at Stonewall's 'trans 2-year olds'

 

Sharon said if she used the language online that is used on her, the police would be knocking at her door. 

 

Hmm, the cynic in me says why not slip in there that the abuse is coming from above. She also mentioned possibly having to take legal action, which also seems to play into the system? I've been meaning to look at what she's been saying as I thought at a glance that at least someone is saying something? I might get around to it.

The outward explanation is that politicians take a short-term view of debt because paying it back will be someone else's problem, and in any case western govts have a good credit rating with the banks so don't have a problem building up eye-watering levels of debt. Then if you have inflation higher than the interest rate of the debt it effectively reduces the debt (rather like when you have house prices increasing faster than the interest on your mortgage). It also brings in more tax. So, heavily indebted govts like high inflation; it's seen as part of the economic cycle of boom and bust. 

 

An inner explanation is that the direction of travel is to use the debt levels, inflation and interest rates to transfer wealth from the middle classes to the banks and large corporations such as oil companies.

Rishi; "I don't think there was ever any doubt that we would have to pay for that, so who's going to pick up the bill"

 

Interesting that they can use the 'debate' to promote the payback. I often noticed the government and the media warning of the danger of loan sharks, while following the advice of the IMF to "spend, spend, spend" (on what), to shaft the country and fast forward the 'once in a century, waste no opportunity, 'reset'. 

 

Do these modern state sponsored loan sharks knock down your door, or lock you indoors?

The "local" journos are not even based in the city. I believe they have a building somewhere like Newport Wales which the "hacks" write copy for local newspapers all over the country. This is why most of the articles are based on people posting on twitter. The Birmingham local newspaper is probably sat next to the liverpool echo guy in the same room.

IMF always make me think of this. Jim Phelps and his portfolio of agents. 

 

Good luck, Jim....this message will self-destruct in the usual manner.

That's called 'the business cycle': the central banks make credit plentiful so that people borrow to start businesses and buy homes and cars and then the central banks restrict the money supply leaving people unable to service their loans. People then go 'broke' and the banks repossess all of their goods and hoover up all of their businesses and assets for pennies on the dollar

 

Its like shearing sheep and they do it every generation or so and people never learn

Its not nice that someone has lost their life, but seriously, social media like TikTok is just making people 'dumb'.

 

TikTok: Teacher died in Snowdon fall looking for beauty spot

Crib Goch ridge

Quote

A teacher died in a 150ft fall after getting lost with her partner trying to find a beauty spot pool on Snowdon she had seen on TikTok, an inquest heard.

Victoria Luck, a special needs teacher and mother-of-two from Wolverhampton, died on 19 December 2021.

The 47-year-old and her partner Matthew Radnor were walking their dog on Crib Goch ridge in search of an "infinity pool" they had seen on the app.

The coroner at Caernarfon recorded a conclusion of misadventure.

Ms Luck and Mr Richard booked a hotel in Betws-y-Coed, Gwynedd with the intention of hiking to a beauty spot publicised on social media, the inquest was told.

From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-62322712

 

An 'infinity pool'? On Snowdon? Really?

 

You'd think a 47 year old teacher would know better?

 

Quote

Assistant coroner for north-west Wales, Sarah Riley, said the couple had not followed a known route down Crib Goch and did not have a map.

I've walked up Snowdon in my youth, and you can't just turn up in your sandals or plimsolls, and you really should prepare and know what to expect. Its not the same as having a stroll around the Lickey Hills.

 

Smart phones make dumb people.

Just got this in my email. Trump is getting desperate...

Donald Trump Jr. <[email protected]>

Friend,

I just couldn’t wait any longer to tell you this EXCITING NEWS.
 
MY FATHER JUST RELEASED OFFICIAL TRUMP-EDITION GOLF BALLS.

This one-of-a-kind, collector’s item is already FLYING off our shelves, however, President Trump and I want to make sure they go to someone who is a TRUE Trump patriot, like YOU.

We have NEVER released Trump-edition Golf balls, and we may never do it again. Once they’re sold out, they’re gone for GOOD.

Debt levels are quite a good indicator of where we are in the "business cycle" (ie greed vs fear, bull vs bear cycle) and I wouldn't really advise entering the stock market without researching it.  

 

 I don't understand though, if this is such a good racket for the banks, why don't govts get in on it and start lending, at least to hedge all their borrowing.

 

Same with property, what's to stop councils buying up homes on the open market to rent out, rather than only having to build whole estates ? But maybe that ship has sailed as prices have spiralled upwards.
