I know that you,
like me, have wondered when you have time, why the world is becoming such a
stinking mess.It’s not just climate
change that threatens all of human and animal habitat although this concern
gets more serious every day. It isn’t even the increasing financial ruination
being brought to us by corporate rule that now seems to have more power than the
governments who protect them instead of us.
With every passing month we have less of what
we need to live as a civil society. Workers need higher wages, we all need more
public and affordable housing, affordable child care, the cessation of criminal
interest rates on credit cards, forgiveness for student debt, and less propaganda
about inflation.Every person entrusted
with grocery buying knows that groceries seem to rise in a disgustingly regular
fashion, if not daily, at least weekly.Epidemics
of dementia of all kinds stalk the elderly, cancer has become so common that
some health scientists predict that one person in two in the western world will
contact cancer before they die.And this
is occurring at the same time that only a handful of people, relatively
speaking; own most of the wealth of the Western World.
The elites (corporations,
bankers, billionaires, media heads, military industrial complex, lobbyists for
eternal wars) tell us one way or another that this is how the world works.It’s just the way humans develop in a free economy.You know, it is freedom that does this.It’s Democracy. Shut up and count your
blessings. The economic winners get to write the rules.
I have been
reading a book that explains, at least to my satisfaction, some of the reasons why
we, the people, have allowed the social psychopaths of the elites to rise to the
top of an increasingly economically miserable heap which the elites themselves
have created.The name of the book I am
finding that points to the wealth and power inequality on earth that is killing
us is: The Master and His Emissary:The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World.The subject is about the human brain
and how it works written by Dr. Iain McGilchrist.McGilchrist has trained both as a literary
scholar and as a medical doctor (psychiatry and neuroimaging researcher).
In order to wrap
our heads around the really insane proposition that the sneakiest, craftiest
and cruelest people among us must be our leaders, we need to know how this
happened in the first place. McGilchrist tells us that it is because the human
animal has a divided brain.However,
while divided, both sides of the human brain talk to each other regularly.
Except in psychopaths.I think that our
elites – our socially acceptable psychopaths - use only one side of their
brain. One side of their brain has mutated and has reduced communication with
the other side. In my opinion they are,
in effect, mutants. More next time.
Yes, I do
think our new Deputy Prime Minister, Chrystia Freeland was recently “kicked
upstairs”. As I understand it, being “kicked upstairs” is a political
phrase used when a minister is making a mess of his or her present portfolio
but instead of being outright sacked is presented as being given a
promotion.And certainly Freeland was a
rotten Foreign Affairs minister. As long as Trudeau stays healthy and has
excellent bodyguards I don’t think Freeland can continue to damage Canada in
her new post as Deputy Prime Minister. At least not to the extent that she was
dragging Canada down to meet and even surpass the American contempt for the
Palestinian people and the sickening elevation of the Trump-Netanyahu Jewish
state over all other considerations.
past election showing Trudeau’s drop of popularity in Canada and with other
nations was a “woke” moment for him. How could he maintain Canada’s reputation
as a fair and balanced nation with a Foreign Affairs minister like Freeland who
refused to even speak to Russian diplomats? What kind of a Foreign
Affairs Minister was she when Russia had to withdraw her diplomats from Canada because
of utter lack of communication with Freeland? So thank you, Mister Prime
Minister, for doing what you had to do to get Madam Freeland out of the Foreign
Affairs office. But what is our new foreign minister like?
So far, so
good. A new page has been turned. Another reason for ousting Freeland
from foreign affairs was that Trudeau wants a seat on the United Nations
Security Council. He would never have had a chance for that seat with Freeland
representing Canada. But Francois–Phillippe Champagne? Ah, a more
reasonable choice for Foreign Affairs. No Russia baiting or Israeli Old Testament
bible thumping here. The Centre for International Governance Innovation constructs
Champagne as “not an intellectual, but an operator, someone who delivers… He
(Champagne) stood out in Ottawa for his good grasp of his files, his
interpersonal skills with Cabinet colleagues and his diligence in the House”.
That’s a relief. May the gods that be deliver us all from politicians like
Chrystia Freeland who think they are - or act as if they are - indeed
intellectuals, when actually they are ideologues. In contrast Champagne is a graduate
in international law. He was initially appointed Minister of
International Trade with the important responsibility of steering Free Trade
agreements with Europe, Asia-Pacific and many other countries.
tell, but I am just so happy that Trudeau, by kicking Chrystia Freedland
upstairs, has thus prevented her from further tearing apart Canada’s good
reputation for being fair minded and reasonable.
Is there Justice beyond the Grave
for Jeffery Epstein’s victims? (Nov.18, 2019)
Jeffery Epstein, the notorious child rapist and suspected
blackmailer who recently died in his jail cell, probably does not lie so easy
in his grave.And Ghislaine Maxwell,
Epstein’s former friend, partner, and alleged madam, probably isn’t resting all
that easy above ground, either. Not that anybody but her lawyers, and I suspect
probably both the CIA and Mossad (Israeli intelligence), know where she is
hiding out.However, she is alive as she
and her lawyers have just asked for a one month extension from a federal judge in
Manhattan on a court matter.What is
this court matter?
Well, we shall see.The court had ordered that both parties in a previous hearing were to
write letters to the judge outlining their positions by no later than Nov.
16.Now Maxwell’s lawyers wants another
month extension.Will she get it?Is this whole thing just a show?Could it be that all the famous names
involved and their backers have no intention of being exposed and will do just
about anything to stop it?Even murder?
