Truth always hurts

 

 Just seen a guy called

Pat Condell the king of free speech being his usual eloquent self.
Being as Youtube have chosen to block and put regional restrictions on this I decided to share it here..
From what I see the problem is telling the truth and actually having the courage to identify who committed what crime.

Careful what you wish for!

I read an interesting article today….. after watching a video on YouTube and started chuckling to myself more and more………….

Black lives Matter have what they wanted…… and what have you got? 2017 has produced more deaths than ever…………….. pretty well one a day….

Freddie Gray…… Trayvon Martin etc ………

Well you got what you wanted…… and the police will quite happily stand by eating donuts cos to do anything makes THEM the target……..

Baltimore Residents Blame Record-High Murder Rate On Lower Police Presence

The Western District police station in Baltimore, Md., seen in July, was the backdrop to violent clashes between police and rioters in 2015, following the death of Freddie Gray.

The Washington Post/Getty Images

For the third year in a row, Baltimore, Md., has had more than 300 murders, reaching a new record of murders per number of residents in 2017.

Some residents attribute the high murder rate to relaxed police patrols in the city following high-profile cases of police brutality. Officers have backed off in neighborhoods, like the one where Freddie Gray was arrested.

The Rev. Kinji Scott, a pastor in Baltimore who’s held positions in local city government, says the opposite needs to happen.

“We wanted the police there,” Scott says. “We wanted them engaged in the community. We didn’t want them beating the hell out of us, we didn’t want that.”

He’s among activists who are calling for police reform to reduce the violence in Baltimore and several other high-crime cities across the U.S. that he says haven’t seen change. That change begins with a conversation between the communities directly involved, Scott says.

“We need the front line police officers and we need the heart of the black community to step to the forefront of this discussion,” he says. “And that’s when we’re going to see a decrease in crime.”

Interview Highlights

On the current state of community safety in Baltimore

When you think about young people who are out here facing these economic challenges and are homeless and living places that are uncertain, and you’re a parent — you’re scared. Not just for yourself really, but for your children.

The average age of a homicidal victim in Baltimore City right now is 31 years old. We had a young man who attended one of the prime high schools, [Baltimore Polytechnic Institute], Jonathan Tobash, and he was 19 years old, he was a Morgan State student. And he was killed on his way to the store. That’s the state of Baltimore right now.

On whether the community wanted police to back off after the death of Freddie Gray

No. That represented our progressives, our activists, our liberal journalists, our politicians, but it did not represent the overall community. Because we know for a fact that around the time Freddie Gray was killed, we start to see homicides increase. We had five homicides in that neighborhood while we were protesting.

What I wanted to see happen was that people would be able to trust the relationship with our police department so that they would feel more comfortable. We’d have conversations with the police about crime in their neighborhood because they would feel safer. So we wanted the police there. We wanted them engaged in the community. We didn’t want them beating the hell out of us, we didn’t want that.

On whether the high murder rate is unique to Baltimore

It’s not. I lost my brother in St. Louis in 2004; just lost my cousin in Chicago. No it’s not unique, and that’s the horrible thing.

On whether Ferguson, the killing of Michael Brown, and the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement has brought change

The primary thrust nationwide is what President Obama wanted to do: focus on building relationships with police departments and major cities where there had been a history of conflict. That hasn’t happened. We don’t see that. I don’t know a city — Baltimore for certain — we’ve not seen any changes in those relationships. What we have seen is that the police has distanced themselves, and the community has distanced themselves even further. So the divide has really intensified, it hasn’t decreased.

And of course we want to delineate the whole culture of bad policing that exists — nobody denies that — but as a result of this, we don’t see the level of policing we need in our community to keep the crime down in our cities that we are seeing bleed to death.

On whether he’s optimistic for 2018

I am not. Because I look at the conclusion of 2017, these same cities — St. Louis, Baltimore, New Orleans and Chicago — these same black cities are still bleeding to death and we’re still burying young men in these cities.

I’m a preacher, I want to be hopeful, but not as it stands, no. Not until we really have a real conversation with our front line officers in the heart of our black communities that does not involve our people who are “leaders.”

We need the front line police officers and we need the heart of the black community to step to the forefront of this discussion. And that’s when we’re going to see a decrease in crime.

But some seem to be telling it the way it is……………………………………

 

So boys… the blood and the rappers…….

Time to admit you NEED help from the Crackers…. cos you cant help yosel!

 

 

 

Prophesy

I have this theory why we have prophesies…….

Take the bible…… a fairly good series of experiences delivered by this guy that no one ever really knew a lot about. Heck they did not even know a single thing about his childhood…other than he was born in a manger…..

He did not pen one single comment he was attributed with…not ONE!

A lot of speculation is all that we have…… true a guy called Jesus existed, and true he was put to death…… but that’s all….. A guy that shunned wealth and fame and one that had the good of those around him at heart.

If this was a criteria of other human beings you could find many. Monks that take vows of poverty….. Doctors that go to really dangerous places in Africa to try and save lives….. the streets of New York…Dehli…… are full of nameless people that give up wealth for others.

And with this information… you have the key ingredient…( lets call it magic powder) sprinkled everywhere that legitimizes without proof.

In this case GOD!…. the confusion of whether the Son of God was actually God…… or a an attribute of a man by those that were not able to correctly state his circumstance.

How about spacemen…? You have structures that go back well before our presumption of when the industrial age started…… timepieces that are older than where our understanding began…… Sextants that have been raised from the deep proclaiming that since  humans had not the capacity when these were made…. it MUST have been an alternative race… its the only answer………

Magic powder is again sprinkled everywhere because we do not have a reasonable solution for those things that fall in the category of explainable……

If the stone age was from x to x…. if the iron age was then…. the industrial age was then….. anything that we can conclusively prove fell outside those dates MUST be from a supreme being…….

In a book called Chariots of the Gods they make a lot of play about carvings or paintings on walls from Europe to Africa….North to South America with guys that appear to have helmets on…… Pyramids too…….

Definite helmets some with tubes coming out of the back much the same as OUR spacemen. More conclusive proof.

But there is another possible answer………

Imagine that today… right now… the crazies that hold the safety keys to the atomic bombs actually set one off….. their hated arch rival believing it is they under attack…. sets some off too……

Guy 1 reciprocates with more….and…. by 24 hrs……. the only weather we have is an atomic winter…. the only people we have are those on some Caribbean island….. New Zealand….and the depths of Africa simply because that a million dollar bomb was not wasted on them with no strategic value.

A winter sets in that would last twenty years, millions would die of starvation, and the population of the earth would not even reach .001% of the previous levels.

But some would survive, small pockets that revert to very basic living…. food to eat… tribal means of settling issues… but more would die……

The perspective for these survivors would change considerably……. academia would take a back seat to finding enough food to live on……….

Preservation of once had treasures would stop in the quest for finding the very basics to live on, as still more die……..

Once the clouds die down and the and the carnage has taken its toll, what we would have left 200 yrs after the event is a flouring planet……. Animals in abundance, and now likely to have the dominance again.

Perhaps 1000 humans in the whole world who have been thrown back into the stone age where survival is the most critical issue.

All they have is a history passed from generation to generation about beings that once inhabited the earth that did great things, had a magic long since forgotten when the last twenty generations have been focusing on how to survive.

The trouble is that these survivors are the ones from regions that at that time had very limited education anyway… the ones from areas of the earth that had no educational and economic and technical advancement… the ones that were safe from a nuclear attack simply because they were not worth an atomic bomb.

The ones that were never taught engineering and farming or trained so they could invent…….. the ones that have been reliant on a global feeeding system for needy countries they simply dont know how to survive on their own.

Limited in their ability toward advancement they go into further decay and starvation till a point is reached where the system reverts to tribal influence throughout everything they do. Witchcraft becomes a popular means of curing because they have nothing else.

Praying to the planets as desperation for help in growing their food becomes their faith and living to 30 or 35 becomes the new old age.

Perhaps those that we thought of as being visitors with wisdom and intelligence from other planets…. were us all the time! Just Prophesy repeating itself.

 

 

 

At Last……Sensibility

Today the 28th December 2017 I have had great pleasure in listening to a YouTube video from a USA Professor.

American University professor, Peter Kuznick, destroys the WWII myths that have underscored US foreign policy since 1945. Peter co-authored The Untold History of the United States with Oliver Stone.

This man gives a very serious detail of misplaced US foreign policy going back to 1945 in layman’s terms that logistically reasons the events that have put us in an horrendous situation today…..

This is probably going to be our epitaph of stupidity if we are not smart enough to see where we have gone wrong, and do something about it.

Absolutely brilliant

We have so little time to change……………………………………………

 

Threats and more Threats

UN votes resoundingly to reject Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as capital

After Donald Trump has decided to move the US embassy to Jerusalem in some sort of point of issue, the members of the UN decided to rebuke any possible support for this move.

So we live in a world where the UN is now being blackmailed by the US for support on an issue so many can see is a very bad decision.

The vote came after a redoubling of threats by Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, who said that Washington would remember which countries “disrespected” America by voting against it.

This is actually the name of the game……. ‘Assist’ countries with finance to the point of dependence in order that they become so reliant they have no choice but to support your action…… even by threats.

Haley added: “If our investment fails, we have an obligation to spend our investment in other ways … The United States will remember this day.”

Could it ever have been imagined a UN ambassador from the US would publicly threaten member states? In a poor effort to justify a outrageous move, the USA attempts to blackmail the whole of the UN.

There were countries that had to give under the pressure…. so small ineffectual or poor that they had no choice.

The other countries which supported Washington were Togo, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Marshall Islands, Guatemala and Honduras.

The reliance these countries have on the US made it inevitable what their vote would be. The remaining countries voted against with some 35 abstentions.

But the vote and indeed the US comments show exactly what the problems are for this world and why so many hate the US dominance.

Now several countries actually support the Palestinian stance actively going against the US stance.

The threatening tone continued with Haley making the US position absolute……

“I must also say today: when we make generous contributions to the UN, we also have expectation that we will be respected,” she said. “What’s more, we are being asked to pay for the dubious privileges of being disrespected.”

Its a sad day for peace…. democracy and fair play………. The US and Trump in particular are at this moment playing with fire.

Game set and Match

So today the Russians have put a new missile system on the border of North Korea and according to the Snowflake Daily Mail…………………………………….

Russia has reacted to North Korea’s increased nuclear and ballistic missile testing and has moved to the border”. Here

But the real story is this small issue of whether NK can keep their nuclear power has been settled.

It would seem to me that the Russians have made their point clear…. go to war with NK and you go to war with us.

Whether your term is Game Set and Match or just check mate…….. this issue has now been addressed, battle lines drawn…… and to all intended purposes been resolved!

Fact or Fiction NK

This last couple of months has started the whole of the internet buzzing as to how do we handle North Korea…. My Answer?…. Its too late!

NK is the product of our foolishness, our desire for power and dominance in every sphere. This of course makes all around us either in awe or afraid of the powerful war machine, or makes us resentful and forced to be humbled.

Looking at this map of nuclear tests has to scare just about anyone that wants to live.

When your labelled as a little crazy fat man by a sitting US President in a country where you are revered to like a god……Its kind of personally insulting to say the least.

So the war machine goes on, and our window of opportunity is now nil, well unless the US wishes to end the lives of at least a million, and perhaps tens of millions.

The US has around 40 thousand troops nearby apart from civilians of SK, Japan,etc that make obvious first strike targets..

NK

The whole of this week has been surrounded by the latest test of NK missile test that confirms it has the ability to hit the USA with something.

************************************

Why has the North Korean regime pursued a nuclear programme?

Much of the regime’s domestic legitimacy rests on portraying the country as under constant threat from the US and its regional allies, South Korea and Japan.

To support the claim that it is in Washington’s crosshairs, North Korea cites the tens of thousands of US troops lined up along the southern side of the demilitarised zone – the heavily fortified border dividing the Korean peninsula. Tensions rise every spring at the start of joint military drills involving US and South Korean forces. North Korea insists the drills are a rehearsal for an invasion.

Faced with what it says are US provocations, North Korea says it has as much right as any other state to develop a nuclear deterrent.

North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un is also aware of the fate of other dictators who lacked nuclear weapons or were forced to give them up.

***********************************

While no doubt the USA is calculating how it can inflict the maximum pain on this upstart (who since 2006 has been in possession of nuclear weapons) every option is on the table to bring him to heel.

The US arsenal is huge, so he must lose, which is why he would fire off every single weapon he has if he believes he is under attack.

B52’s in their droves would descend, but would be much too late for the 40K plus troops of the USA, their frigates destroyers and aircraft carriers within 600 miles or so and all the people of SK and japan are duly concerned.

The most formidable drone ever is the Reaper. A autonomous search and destroy killing machine that is formidable to say the least.

The fact that this week Kim has confirmed he can reach around two thirds of the USA adds another ingredient to the flavor, particularly if he lets off all missiles because of a supposed attack.

AEGIS is lacking in so many ways and failures he is sure to hit some targets on USA soil, so bursting the USA dominance bubble.

So its decided he will lose and a mass annihilation is inevitable….. or is it?

On the 4th July NK launch it first intercontinental ballistic missile

Analysis by Japan and South Korea has supported the account given by North Korea’s Academy of Defence Science, which said the missile reached an altitude of 1,741 miles (2,802km) and flew 580 miles.

And although the public and foolish reporters may not have noticed there is something that perhaps North Korea was trying to put across to avoid any immediate action.

The space station is at an orbit of about 250 miles…. in relatively low orbit….. and the 4th july missile went seven times the height.

The GPS satellites are at a height of 12000 miles though, and with a slightly different missile NK’s rockets could be adapted and with just a little more advancement in technology.

That is the direction I believe NK will go to be assured of a no strike on it by any of the players in this scenario.

To lose the satellites means losing the Reaper, B52’s, every aircraft carrier and warship. No missile could be launched, and most ground based systems of infantry will have absolutely no idea where they are.

Many vehicles just would not go because of the reliance on GPS, in particular public transport, perhaps even your car, and you wont be hoping on any civilian plane.

And all without a single life being lost!

If he can do it….he will do it that is for sure, and we have not even considered the other players in this foolish game that governments play!

As I am not a tactical expert and think of this….. you can believe that Russia, and China thought of this many years ago, and giving that final technology to NK would enhance their pawns in the game.

Even without it…. a nuclear strike on NK spells disaster for all involved.

AS in the film ‘Wargames’……. “The only solution Dr Falken…….

 

Banned again

In the Daily Mail they ran a story…..

Shocking video shows the moment a male chimp was pummeled to death by SEVEN other primates in their enclosure after falling 40 feet from a tree while fighting

My comment was:-
Does it remind you of any particular race?
The Mail banned me for life………………………….. LOL
According to them….. they received lots of complaints….
It appears I am getting penalized for what their readers have associated with the comment…..
Hey….. if it was too close to home….and the cap fits…. wear it!

A little reminder of 14 years ago

Autumn Years

 

I think that is a nice expression, and I hasten to add, one I would prefer never applies to me. Its sole implication is the end, the final curtain, the Grand Final.

These last few years have seen many of my family get stricken or get taken to a better place and I reflect on what my “Autumn Years” may have in store for me.

I am 49 and 8 months now, going on immaturity, and am not looking forward to what is in store, I after all, above all the other humans deserve to live till I am damn well ready to die.

(I should commit suicide and cheat our maker….. I could say “ Hey you cant get rid of me….. I quit”)

I keep getting this unnerving feeling that I cant be nearly 50, I have not lived yet, barely started.

So many places to go, people to meet. I have dreams and exploits that many would think foolish at this age.

Bungee jump, Parachute jump, hang gliding, micro lighting, Flying a plane… the wild inexorable feeling that drives your brain, the exhilaration of adrenalin, flowing so hard and furious through your body, leaving that wild anticipation on your lips to savor again and again.  Sure I have risked it, I believe the current term is “Pushing the Envelope”. But hey! Its My Envelope.

I have however really never been a don’t doer, always basked in the thought, that where the others fail I will succeed. I have absolute supreme confidence in my ability. Not that it is so good, but sheer determination and guts actually can replace some of that gray matter I wish I had.

Always mocked the man that has not enough courage to do something, it doesn’t have to be great, but it does need to be unique….. unique to you that is. A sense of achievement, of pride and most of all morally sound. A road sweep, or waiter, a garbage collector or sewage man, does it matter?? As long as it’s the best you can be.

Its actually so sad to see my Mother infirm, my uncle Reg after suffering a stoke with a listless look in his eye

This, a man so vibrant and full of other peoples needs, become a part of his previous self and in turn become the person he once had so much passion to help and serve. A cruel irony for any man, but perhaps an irony that is the most difficult to accept.

The fact that we all grow old, a sick perverted game of the almighty may be, one where as he sits on his thrown on high, dictating on a regular basis who’s time it is, and of course who’s it isn’t.

No thought for the real people of the world, the ones that actually achieve. The ones who do more than try… the ones that actually succeed. Not Bill Gates or Attila the Hun, Joan of Arc, Winston, John, Martin, or even the big J himself. I mean the unsung warriors that give their life to something, with a total selfless attitude , or the ones that have achieved against the odds and those you hear of so very little.

It does however make you appreciate the things around you with more clarity and sensitivity, with more emphasis on relationships, and more on family life. A topic that sadly I have very little concept outside my immediate family, and one I am reluctant to add, I should have paid more attention, suffice to say I will in the future. We want to care and be cared about, such a small thing to ask…… In those twig light, autumn something years.

Mother

As I sit by your bedside

Holding your hand

Seeing the woman that made me

All that  “I am”

 

The woman that held me

Oh so tight

When I had a sickness

All through the night

 

The woman that loved me

With a heart so dear

Through my good times and bad times

Took away my fear

 

Always there for me

Defended me so

How can I repay you

So much more than I show

 

How can I show you

My Mother so dear

Who never left me

And always was near

 

You have shown me the way

Made my thoughts so clear

As you lie on your bed

As darkness grows near

 

You’ve shown me the strength

To make the man I am

And  I am  so proud

To call you “Mam”

 

But it may be a month

or even a year

When you will leave me

And give so many tears

 

You’re a Mother that’s special

One who showed me whats right

And I say that I love you

As he turns out the light.

Hypocrisy

I guess an issue that we all are guilty of, no matter how much we try. Kinda food for thought eh?? Never actually thought of myself as a hypocrite.

Its starts with dodging the rules ever so slightly that we somehow seem to blow out of proportion.

Starting with the politicians, and ending with priests . Just how do they live with themselves. Starting with the pontiff, his cocoon like world of bodyguards and senility, mixed with brief spells of sanity.

Politicians , who I am sure all start out with the very best of intentions and then allowing popular opinion or advisors to sway their very core of judgment, allowing a sort of insulation of the real world and truth become secondary to goals and achievement that they feel, or are persuaded to feel will obscure their advancement if they do comply, through no fault of their own, thereby enforcing the justification for bending the rules.

The US in forces in Vietnam (and many other places) The Germans in occupied Europe. The current agenda of Bush mkII who somehow thinks he can defeat terrorism by being colonialistical, not to mention tyrannical (did I say I was not going to mention that)

Does not stop there however.. the UN in their majestic glory with no teeth and definitely no back bone. Hypocrisy through and through with no possibility of some sort of respite.

The obvious course of action is to throw the US out of the UN. Have no part in what the US do, and finally to respond as we would to any despot country who wishes to force their will on another… defend the smaller country. Forgive me if I misunderstand something here but is that not what the UN was formed to do.

Another example of forgetting the original intention, so forming another level of hypocrisy that will be reflected in history not as one you can look back on with honor , but one that will sour the good work they actually do.

You could hardly say short sighted.. a blind man could see better with a dark hood over his face……………………..
