I remember a time when the The Guardian was a respected newspaper. It’s owned by the Scott Trust, which was created in 1936 to “safeguard the journalistic freedom and liberal values of The Guardian free from commercial or political interference”. Sadly the Guardian is no longer a liberal newspaper. Instead it engages in political interference for a living. It’s renowned as a Marxist mouthpiece which peddles left wing lies and PC claptrap. It is famous for being a hotbed of propaganda and censorship. There once was a time when The Guardian told you the news. Now it tells you what to think.
The absolute gold standard of journalistic integrity
Of course, it isn’t the only media outlet that does this. The BBC is much the same. It used to be the absolute gold standard of journalistic integrity. Now it’s isn’t. Hence Emily Maitlis said everybody was outraged at Dominic Cummings when they weren’t. I wasn’t. The wife wasn’t. Nobody I knew was. So, some guy takes his wife and child to a cottage in Durham. Big deal. Of course, BBC news staff were then seething because Maitlis got ticked off for presenting personal opinion as nationwide fact. That’s par for the course for the BBC these days. They’ve lost their moral compass. That’s why poor old grannies pay through the nose for propaganda and censorship and secret sky-high salaries:

There’s also Question Time which is now unwatchable. Fiona Bruce interrupts people like Nadhim Zahawi, the panel is loaded, and the audience is full of Momentum plants. As for the Today programme on Radio 4, ye gods. Have you ever heard those guys giving their side an open mike whilst shouting down the opposition? There was an article in The Telegraph the other day saying the Biased Today programme needs reining in. It also said “the corporation’s flagship radio programme has for too long pandered to a metropolitan, Remainer elite”. Too right.
The EU reverse-Robin
Is this a recent trend? Yes, I think it is. I remember maybe ten years back when Sky News had a great reputation. Now their one-sided reportage sides with the EU reverse-Robin fatcats. Just like the BBC, the EU take from the poor and give to the rich. Rich people like Michael Heseltine. He was part of Project Fear, and happily pocketing £90k a year as some kind of “farming subsidy”. Nice work if you can get it. Especially if you’re like Amazon, and you don’t pay tax. They got their Luxembourg sweetheart deal courtesy of Jean-Claude Juncker. That’s the former EU president whose name was the only name on the ballot paper. The EU despises democracy. They dismiss it as mere “populism”. They don’t care if the people of Greece are poor. The Brexit referendum took place four years ago, and since then they’ve done nothing to persuade us that we made the wrong choice. They never will. A leopard doesn’t change his spots. If only the EU had modelled themselves on the USA. In the USA, they have democracy coming out of their ears. In the USA, if you support your local Sheriff it’s probably because you voted for the guy. In the USA, you even get to vote for your President.
I knew Donald Trump was going to win the 2016 presidential election when I saw the documentary about Youngstown. It was once a place where you could live the American dream. You could have a job in a steel mill that paid well enough for a good home, plus a car and steaks and all the rest. But then “the industrial economy that drew various groups to the area collapsed in the late 1970s”. After that, Youngstown turned into rustbelt America. It got so bad it ended up being used as the set of a post-apocalyptic zombie movie. Sadly the burnt out cars, the broken windows, and the weeds growing out of buildings were for real:

Somewhere along the line blue-collar America was betrayed by the likes of the Clintons, much as working-class Britain was betrayed by the likes of Tony Blair. These people were supposedly rooting for the lower echelons of society, but in truth they were cosying up to the globalists. You know, the sort of people who close down a factory in Barnsley and transfer production to the Philippines, thereby slashing labour costs and getting even richer. These are the sort of people who also want to import cheap labour, which is one reason why minimum wage is way too common these days. These are the sort of people who whisper into the ear of people like Hilary Clinton, who made a big mistake when she called the Trump supporters deplorables. She basically said American workers are a bunch of racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic rednecks. They aren’t. They’re just like you and me. They wanted somebody who would root for them for a change.
The Goebbels big lie
Trump has been doing well. I think that’s because he did things that helped the economy. Like telling General Motors he would tax their cars from Mexico. After that, Ford announced that they’d increase production in Michigan instead of building a new factory in Mexico. Ford were of course the multinational company who took EU money to transfer van production from Southampton to Turkey, but I digress. Another reason Trump has been doing well is that the Democrats were not contrite. They didn’t sit down and ask themselves why they’d failed blue-collar America. Instead they doubled down on the nonsense because they were ultra certain that everything Trump stands for is wrong wrong wrong:

What arrogance do these people have? I don’t know, but I do know that they too think they can tell you what to think. Because they think you’re stupid. They also think that if they repeat the lie enough, you will eventually believe it. People like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Nancy Pelosi actually believe in the Goebbels big lie. So do their friends at CNN and the Washington Post.
The ludicrous pantomime
Hence the ludicrous pantomime featuring Professor Christine Blasey Ford trying to stop Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Because he allegedly pushed her onto a bed thirty six years ago? When he was seventeen? FFS. I don’t know if you watched the show, or the body-language analysis, but it was crystal clear that she was lying through her simpering baby-talk teeth. It was also crystal clear that she also lied about her fear of flying, and that the hearing was really delayed because the coaching hadn’t been going too well. Another ludicrous pantomime was the Mueller Investigation which had been launched courtesy of the dodgy dossier. That was the Steele dossier, which the Guardian said was “one of the most explosive documents in modern political history”. What they didn’t say, was that it was a pack of lies to enable illegal phone tapping. That’s why Mueller ended up squeezing witnesses on trumped-up charges threatening lifelong jail terms to try to get them to fabricate evidence. It didn’t work, and it all ended in tears with Mueller’s stumbling shambolic train-wreck testimony. Then there were the pathetic efforts to impeach Trump for a phone call. Joe Biden had already bragged about getting Ukraine prosecutor Viktor Shokin fired, but that didn’t matter. Nor did it matter that Hunter Biden had been getting eighty three thousand bucks a month from Burisma, and landed a billion dollar deal after a trip to China in Air Force two. If Donald Trump junior had done that, we’d never had heard the last of it. But instead the US “mainstream” media tried to sweep it under the carpet. Nothing to see here, move along. Yeah right.
The weaponized judiciary
On top of that we’ve had the weaponized judiciary making it up as they go along to try to stop Trump delivering on his campaign promises. For example Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii blocked Trump’s travel ban. See the Sunday Guardian which says “activist judges needed to effectively “fabricate” a new law just to block the ban”. Another example was provided by federal Judge David Briones, who ruled that Trump’s emergency funding for the border wall was illegal.

William Barr’s Wall Street Journal article on nationwide injunctions is well worth reading. He says things like “Shrewd lawyers have learned to “shop” for a sympathetic judge willing to issue such an injunction”. So true.
Immigration, which is a big issue
The latest example is the double-standards DACA ruling. That concerns immigration, which is a big issue. The champagne socialists do so love their skivvies. They also love importing voters and promising them free money and Medicare to make sure they vote Democrat. For them, it’s win-win, especially since they can also use it for virtue signalling. Especially since they can smear any dissent as racist. Then if they can tug your heartstrings using children, so much the better. What a pity they used pictures from the Obama era, and children are being rented out by people smugglers. I think it’s like what Brendan O’Neill said, the left was trying to find an issue with which “it might successfully harm its political opponents and, even more importantly, demonstrate its own presumed virtue”. However things like the killing of Kate Steinle took the edge off that. There’s been too many similar cases, see the Angel Families website. Also see this: the Somalis have brought a whole new level of violence to the streets of London. They say similar things about Minneapolis. Hence the migration card has been wearing thin of late, along with the sanctuary cities. Especially since the latter are where crime is rife, as are discarded needles and human excrement.
They still have no decent policies
Meanwhile, the Democrats have taken their eye off the ball. They’ve wasted their time attacking Trump, and they still have no decent policies. Take a look at the Democrat party website. All it talks about is getting democrats elected. They say they’re “fighting for a better, fairer, and brighter future for every American”, but they’re not. The Democrats are like our Labour party. Labour want you poor, because poor people vote Labour. It’s the same for the Democrats. They want you poor too, especially if you’re black:
Image from the Democratic party website
See their where we stand web page. It says Democrats believe health care is a right. That sounds good. After all we have our NHS here in the UK. Why not have something similar in the USA? The trouble is that the Democrats want an International Health Service – they want free healthcare for illegal immigrants as an inducement to come and swell the ranks. What else? There’s the economy should work for everyone, which is what Trump’s being doing, so that won’t wash. Then amazingly, they say facts and truth matter. Facts and truth matter? Coming from the Democrats? You have got to be f*cking kidding. These are the people who say they believe in immigration reform when actually, they don’t. These are the people who say they believe in cracking down on companies that ship profits and jobs overseas when actually, they don’t. These are the people who say black lives matter, when actually, they don’t give a damn.
The Democrats want to keep you in your place
They know full well that the biggest problem is that circa 72% of African American children don’t have a father at home. That’s the result of a self-perpetuating black macho ghetto culture. It was described in the 1965 Moynihan report. That’s 55 years ago. The Democrats have done nothing about it. Instead they hope to gain from it, Hence Barack Obama did nothing for black America. Are you a young black guy from Austin, Chicago? Do you want a better life? See the Larry Elder article on the Fox News website. It’s about a young black guy called Chad Jackson. He was “shocked to discover that his support for limited government, low taxes and school choice, and his opposition to abortion on demand, made him a Republican”. He got called an Uncle Tom. The Democrats want to keep you in your place.
George Floyd didn’t deserve to die
George Floyd didn’t deserve to die. But that’s no excuse for an orgy of looting and destruction. For myself I think the mainstream media should have made it clear that Floyd was a six-foot-seven bouncer who worked at the same club as Derek Chauvin, and that they didn’t get on. The man who said that has now retracted it, but Floyd’s family haven’t. That’s why they’re saying Chauvin should be charged with first-degree murder. I don’t know the truth of that, but I do know that Floyd’s death has been a cause célèbre for all the Marxists and anarchists who want to smash the system. These people really do want to defund the police. Their Democrat friends abolished bail for robbers and burglars, then turned a blind eye to all the trouble it caused. The Democrats have been actively encouraging the riots and the looting. They want mob rule in their streets, because they think it will harm Trump’s election chances. And woe betide you if you object. You will be “no-platformed”. You will be “cancelled”. You will get fired for having the temerity to say all lives matter. In the brave new world of Orwellian doublespeak, all lives matter is racist. Make sure you read If You Don’t Support Black Lives Matter, You’re Fired by John Daniel Davidson. It wasn’t just Grant Napear who lost his job. Because like Konstantin Kisin says, this isn’t about fighting racism, this is about power.
They are the InterNazis
The people causing the trouble are international socialists. Not national socialists, international socialists. They are the InterNazis. They lost the moral argument and the elections, but instead of coming up with something better, they’ve resorted to thuggery and thought police. The Covid-19 pandemic has been a godsend to them, because it upset Trump’s economic success. On top of that it’s now OK to wear masks in public. So when George Floyd died at the hands of a Minneapolis TO acting the tough guy, they were ready with their manufactured outrage. Antifa say they’re anti-fascist. But they label anybody who doesn’t like their hard-left anarchy as a fascist. Then they demand that such people are silenced. Then you can’t see that Antifa are the real fascists:

The truth is that to the Antifa blackshirts, black lives matter only when they can gain from it. And like Shaun King said, “Democrats, from top to bottom, are running the cities with the worst police brutality in America right now. We voted for them”. That’s cities like Chicago, where eighteen people were murdered on Sunday May 31 2020, most of them black. Thirteen people were murdered last weekend, see Newt Gingrich’s article Do black lives matter in Chicago? Not to the Democrats. Gingrich says this: “Every life matters. And after 89 years of Democratic control in Chicago, it is time for Republicans to extend a helping hand to suffering people in devastated neighborhoods”. Well said that man. David Dorn’s life didn’t matter. CNN didn’t even want to mention him on air. It would also appear that Jewish lives don’t matter either. Like the Nazis before them, the InterNazis don’t like Jews. They smash up shops and burn books too. As to where that leaves you if you’re a black Jew with a bookshop, I don’t know. Maybe you should ask Tim Scott.
The Black Lives Matter website looks reasonable, but it’s a sham. The New York Post quotes co-founder Patrisse Cullors saying she and Alicia Garza are “trained Marxists”. The Telegraph says Black Lives Matter is a radical neo-Marxist political movement. It’s true, check out Marxist.com. Do your own research, and think for yourself. But do try alternative search engines, just in case some do-no-evil organisation gets tempted to bury a few websites way down deep in the results. Then see what Nigel Farage has to say on Brietbart: “Black lives matter is a dangerous Marxist organisation hell bent on anarchy”. It’s just the militant wing of the Democrat party playing the race card for all they’re worth.
White silence is violence
They’re also fighting tooth and nail to stop anybody trumping them with the freedom of speech card. They don’t like freedom of speech. They like censorship instead. They learned it in college, in their safe-spaces where opposing views are verboten. The Guardian will try to tell you it’s a myth, but it isn’t. It’s real. In academia, it’s a way of life, and it’s spilled out into the world at large. Censorship is now utterly endemic, and the thought police are absolutely brazen. They’re even pushing for advertisers to boycott Facebook because they won’t censor Trump. Mark Zuckerberg knows full well that Facebook can either be a platform or a publisher. As does everybody else. But that doesn’t stop the “liberals” leaning on him to turn it into a ministry of truth. A place where all non-conformist views are declared to be hate speech, and therefore must be censored. Only you don’t get to see what’s censored. Because it’s censored. Neat trick. Then if something slips through the net there’s hell to pay. Hence at the New York Times, James Bennet lost his job because he ran an op ed piece by Senator Tom Cotton. It spoke of the need to protect citizens from rioters, looters, and left-wing radicals. He was spot on, but you can now read that “the essay fell short of our standards and should not have been published”. It’s ridiculous. But not as ridiculous as the Huffington Post article by Jesse Damiani: “When you say “All Lives Matter,” you are perpetuating toxic racism”. Oh boy. That’s right up there with white silence is violence and capitalism is racist.
27 police officers injured during largely peaceful protests
However I think the best one was the stupendously stupid BBC headline: 27 police officers injured during largely peaceful protests. That’s the self-same BBC who cropped the picture of the man brandishing the big big stick:
Image from The Telegraph
That’s the self-same BBC who said the people who object to statues being pulled down are right-wing extremists. The self-same BBC who won’t tell you about the black slavers who went out and captured their fellow Africans to sell to Europeans. Or how we Brits put an end to the slave trade. That’s the self-same BBC who’ve kept a low profile lately about all the young black men in London getting stabbed to death. The Guardian have done the same. In similar vein NBC wouldn’t cover the ugly events in the Seattle CHOP.
It’s not how you vote that counts, it who counts the vote that counts
The irony of course is that too many so-called socialist love their Deliveroo pizzas brought by gig economy workers with no workers’ rights. Along with their Uber taxis driven by migrants working a 16 hour day. Like I said, the champagne socialists do so love their skivvies. And as for the snowflakes who want to destroy the statues of Abraham Lincoln, words fail me. Anyway, I hope that in the USA, the silent majority are numerous enough to outweigh the Democrats plus the fraudulent postal votes. You know, the fraudulent postal votes that are “fake news”. You have to laugh at the way Twitter tried to censor Trump with a voter-fraud “fact check” provided by CNN. See Fox News and the article by Greg Re: “Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud”. That was the conclusion of a bipartisan 2005 report authored by the US Commission on Federal Election Reform. The Democrats say they’re safeguarding the right to vote, when actually they’re rigging elections. Like in Orange county and Broward. Like Stalin said, it’s not how you vote that counts, it who counts the vote that counts. Come on, really, who wants to vote for Joe Biden? He has early onset dementia, his morality is dubious, and his track record is awful. If Biden gets elected, it won’t be God Bless America, it will be God Help America.
