pause for thought
where is Palestine after a lifetime of peace process?
The time is just past seventy – for me - and the clock is stopped at various points where it mattered. The Balfour Declaration comes to mind – the document in which the British government of the day saw no problem with the aspirations of Zionist Jews who wanted Jews to be settled in Palestine as long as the Palestinians weren’t disadvantaged. A gentleman’s agreement which stood no chance of being realised.
As events unfolded so the Palestinians have been continuously treated as sub human and confined to the ghetto of the Gaza Strip and what is now left of the West Bank. The Balfour Declaration of 1917 has since seen no attempt at a two state resolution or any semblance of a peace process and with Israel holding all the power and constantly playing victim to the larger world few dare look at the issue with clarity.
The truth of the matter is that the Palestinians are an obstacle to a wider Jewish State in much the same way as the Germans of a previous generation saw the Jews. How this glaring parallel is not made more of is testament to the power of the Zionist State – I make a distinction, many religious Jews find the Zionist State of Israel contrary to their beliefs … it is God who restores the Jews to the Holy land and not some political version of Judaism who decided not to wait but to contrive events to achieve a similar end.
It’s froth and bubble and yet it’s not. It's obscene.
Israel a Democracy? Another lie - as is a great deal of what passes for the news. Cognitive dissonance plagues the World.
Meanwhile in a garden far far away … a quiet blues in E.
Spitting in the ocean
Making Climate data models is what Doctor John Christy does for a living. His testimony before the Natural Resources Committee on May 13, 2015 is remarkable for both its detail and in the clarity of his presentation.
‘Climate Change is Settled Science’ is accepted at the highest level of Government and therefore there IS an agenda. It needs to be stated when the very word ‘agenda’ conjures up images of conspiracy – I’ll leave out the word theory because conspiracy exists and there’s no theory about that. It doesn’t require that the many involved have any idea at all that they’re following a lie.
'scientific consensus?' - no such thing - how could there be?
'Do your own research' is the urging of commentators worthy of respect. The '97% myth' is just one of umpteen areas of modern life requiring investigation.
not all professors deserve that title
When it comes to Climate Change fraud is at its foundation. The fact that whole populations are drip fed nonsense on a daily basis applies in many fields and no blame to those who struggle to survive but not so for our political parties nor for the media none of whom bother to fact check.
‘Climategate’ actually happened and history has not yet been so scrubbed as to make it unavailable. Al Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Truth’ is worth re-watching to see how nothing regarding his predictions have come true.
The Climatic Research Unit email controversy (also known as "Climategate") began in November 2009 with the hacking of a server at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) by an external attacker, copying thousands of emails and computer files (the Climatic Research Unit documents) to various internet locations several weeks before the Copenhagen Summit on climate change.
The story was first broken by climate change denialists, who argued that the emails showed that global warming was a scientific conspiracy and that scientists manipulated climate data and attempted to suppress critics. The CRU rejected this, saying that the emails had been taken out of context. FactCheck.org confirmed that climate change deniers misrepresented the contents of the emails. Columnist James Delingpole popularised the term "Climategate" to describe the controversy.
There’s more of course but to suggest that emails were taken out of context and leave it at that …
And here’s some truth which is potentially far worse than the idea of Global Warming – our Sun, our Star isn’t taken into account when it comes to computer modelling. Makes the modelling an expensive nonsense.
"two minutes of truth, of bitter truth"
It was a brief mention on the ABC radio only heard once but enough for me to look it up. ‘Carbon footprint’ is a phrase that we recognise but from where that wicked phrase came isn’t recognised. Here is what I found and quoting Wiki.
“The use of household carbon footprint calculators originated when oil producer BP hired Ogilvy to create an "effective propaganda" campaign to shift responsibility of climate change-causing pollution away from the corporations and institutions that created a society where carbon emissions are unavoidable and onto personal lifestyle choices. The term "carbon footprint" was also popularized by BP.”
That was a surprise to learn but not totally unexpected.
The state of the changing climate is not your fault. The fact that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change hasn’t recognised the immense part that our star, the sun, plays when ‘climate modelling’ is undertaken beggars belief but so it is. There is no such thing as ‘Scientific consensus’ nor does ‘The science is settled’ hold any meaning. As for being a ‘Climate Denier’ – define it. It’s another phrase used to stifle questioning.
So many threads make up a tapestry. Here is one which relates to the European Union – two minutes, not too long even in an age of thirty second attention spans.
Fare thee well
I’m hard pressed to know what to say about death. Always a shock even if expected but shock upon shock, reverberations when unexpected. Such it has been for Ross Broadstock the guiding light of BritainsHiddenHistory channel on youtube who died of a heart attack, too young, too vibrant.
He leaves an ongoing priceless legacy in the bringing to light the works of Wilson and Blackett, historians of the highest calibre and in the personal ‘out in the field’ research that Ross achieved.
I never met Ross in person but felt as though I’d got to know something of the essence of the man by virtue of his videos.
‘Fare thee well’, Ross. I’d been trying for months to get a phonetic version of that glorious Welsh song ‘Yma o Hyd’ – much loved world wide but difficult to sing for a non Welsh speaker. Ross also enjoyed trying to sing this song. I finally managed to write a reasonably o.k. phonetic version which I’d have sent to Ross had he not died.
An English translation of the chorus reads “We are still here. We are still here. Despite everyone and everything, we are still here.” Poignant, given the circumstance.
This is the video. There is a free, downloadable mp3 on the music page here.
These are the phonetic lyrics.

when trust is broken
Did CIA Director William Casey really say, "We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false"?
According to Barbara Honegger who was there when Ronald Reagan first met with William Casey it is an accurate quote but there’s always context to shade a meaning. Nonetheless trust in Government of any persuasion is long gone.

Do I trust the source is my next question so Casey’s comment has served its purpose.
Musing on what I may or may not know to be true and false flag operations come to mind. No doubt they’re carried out by many a country but it’s the U.S.S. Liberty incident which immediately pops into view literally as youtube kindly ‘suggests’ it – probably due to algorithms but who knows.
If you’re not familiar with this shameful incident in which Israel attacked the U.S.S. Liberty – basically a spy ship – and Lyndon Johnson, scurvy rogue President, turned his back on his own countrymen rather than offend Israel with an expose of the affair. To the dismay of both countries the ship and some crew survived to tell the tale.
this is essentially an apologetic for the incident. A ‘nothing untoward’ piece delivered with sincerity. Suggests that it was all a mistake.
this is the testimony of someone who was there on the ship when the attack happened. It wasn’t a mistake.
Johnson followed Kennedy as President and the papers regarding the Kennedy assassination which were due to be released by Trump didn’t occur. Trump thought them too dangerous, too revealing, it hardly matters what his excuse was, the result is more secrecy. Why and who is it that needs to be protected after all this time.
Why would anyone trust in politicians. Sincerity counts for nothing if, unwittingly, one has become a mouthpiece for lies. Witness the ‘weapons of mass destruction’ nonsense which preceded the war in Iraq. Failure of intelligence? Whose intelligence? Yours – mine?
The war for the hearts and minds continues apace and, apart from 9/11 research, it’s the history of Central Banks and in particular the birth of the Federal Reserve which occupied my attention. Privately owned although you and I can’t buy shares and it’s neither Federal nor Reserve.
Woodrow Wilson was President at the time and this is what he said regarding the Federal Reserve:
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world - no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” … said by Woodrow Wilson after signing the Federal Reserve into existence.
There is of course dispute over whether or not he said it however the salient fact here is that the Federal Reserve IS privately owned.
Hmm. Something to ponder.
Something more cheerful to finish off – Michael Sheldrake “Science set free.”
Meanwhile La Nina continues, the garden is sodden but is as prepared for summer as can be managed … and I find time to continue my education with BritainsHiddenHistory – remarkable that this history, hidden though it’s been, parallels that of Aboriginal Australia and Indigenous cultures worldwide.
and then there's this as food for thought
