Welcome to London: The Truth Is That We Can’t Go On Like This


They stood in the centre of Brussels. Row on row. Hands held high, making hearts to the heavens. Showing the slaughtered they weren’t forgotten. Reminding themselves they were here with love. Looking to show humanity wins. That love conquers all. They lay in the centre of London, face down where they fell. Stabbed by a knife, rammed with a car, flung, broken, into the Thames, life bleeding out on the curb. The news came thick and fast. A car rammed deliberately into pedestrians on the bridge. Ten innocents down. A police officer stabbed at the House of Commons. Confirmed dead. Another woman now, dead at the scene. Shots fired. An Asian man rushed to hospital. A woman plucked from the water. I grew colder… and more tiny. No anger for me this time. No rage like I’d felt before. No desperate urge to get out there and scream at the idiots who refused to see this coming. Not even a nod for the glib idiots who say this won’t defeat us, that we’ll never be broken, that cowardice and terror won’t get the better of Britain. Because, as loyal as I am, as patriotic as I am, as much as my whole younger life was about joining the British military and fighting for my country… I fear we’re broken.

Not because of this ghoulish spectacle outside our own Parliament. Not because of the lives rammed apart on the pavement, even as they thought about what was for tea. Or what train home they might make. However, because this is us now. This is our country now. This is what we have become. To this, we’ve been reduced. Because all the while those forgiving fools in Brussels stood with their stupid hands raised in hearts to the sky, another mischief was in the making. More death was in the pipeline. As the last life-blood of a police officer ran out across the cobbles, the attacker was being stretchered away in an attempt to save his life. London is a city so desperate to be seen as tolerant that they released no news of the injured. No clue about who was safe or not. Liberals convince themselves multiculturalism works because we all die together, too. An entire city of monkeys… see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. Blind. Deaf. And dumb. Immersed in a seething pit of hatred, hidden in pockets of communities plagued by old animosities and ancient strife.

These people may have left their lands. However, they’ve brought every tension, every conflict, every bit of fight here with them. The Afghans hate the Somalis who loathe the Eritreans. As it was before, it is now. London is a city of ghettos behind a thin veneer of civility kept polished by a Muslim mayor whose greatest validation is his father’s old job. Son-of-a-bus-driver Sadiq. I see him now, penning a missive about how London is a beautiful and tolerant city, how we’re united by shared values and understanding, and how we won’t be cowed by terror. Sure enough, there he was, saying exactly that, just now. Fool.

Even as mothers text to check their children are safe. Including my own, worrying about me as I sit overlooking the scene, feeling fearful of this place where monsters lurk and steal lives away in an instant. For nothing. I’d ask Sadiq to stop talking. Empty words. Meanwhile, banning pictures of women in bikinis on the Underground. How does that help? Please, no hashtag, no vigil, no tea lights. I’m begging you not to light up Parliament in the colours of the Union. Because we aren’t united. We’re wrenched asunder. The patriots of the rest of England versus the liberals in this city. The endless tolerance to those who harm us, (while the Home Office tries to shift the focus of public fear to white terror)… versus the millions like me who face the truth, with worried families and hopeless hearts, who feel the country sinking. We’re taken under the cold water by this heavy right foot in the south, a city of lead, so desperately wedded to the multicultural illusion that it can only fight those who love the country the most, blame those who are most proud to be British, and shout racist at the 52 percent.

This place is just like Sweden. Terrified of admitting the truth about the threat we face, about the horrors committed by the migrants we failed to deter… because to admit that we’re sinking, and fast, would be to admit that everything the liberals believe is wrong. That multiculturalism hasn’t worked. That it is one big fat failure and one big fat lie. President Erdogan of Turkey said there’s a war being waged between the crescent and the cross. Nevertheless, he’s wrong. Because the cross isn’t strong. We’re down on bended knee, a doormat to be trodden on, a joke only funny to those that wish us harm. The war is between London and the rest of the country. Between the liberals and the right-minded. Between those who think it’s more important to tip-toe around the cultures of those who choose to join us, and not defend our own culture.

How many more times? How many more attacks must pass before we acknowledge these are no longer the acts of “extremists”? That there’s no safe badge with which to hold these people at arm’s length, in the way the liberals casually use the term “far-right” for anyone who has National pride. These events are no longer extreme. They’re commonplace. Everyday occurrences. These people are no longer extremists. They’re simply more devout. More true to their beliefs. Beliefs which will be supported endlessly across our state broadcaster for the next few months until we buy into the narrative that one religion isn’t to blame. That in fact, we should blame Brexit supporters. For believing in a Britain. As it was before. Anything but the truth.

This is why there’s no anger from me this time, no rage. No nod for those who pretend we won’t be cowed, even as they rush home to text their mum they’re safe. No surprise that the city of which I was so proud is now punctured by fear, and demarcated even more formally by places we can’t tread; there were always parts in which a white woman couldn’t safely walk. Now, I feel only sadness, overwhelming sadness. I’ll walk over the river tonight and look to the Thames, to the Union flag lowered at half-mast, and the Parliament below, and I’ll wonder, just how much longer we can go on like this.

15 March 2017. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky… The Future of the EU


EU member-states are gradually coming to the idea that any future union wouldn’t be a monolithic organisation, with all members equally integrated into one common European space. The ending of the latest EU summit showed that although most European leaders aren’t pleased with the distinction, almost all understand that the only possible future EU is “a Europe on different levels” or “a variable-geometry Europe”. Behind those beautiful expressions is a simple principle… each EU country would determine how far each country integrates into the larger community, with participation or non-participation in any EU programme or entity based on how far it coincides with their particular national interests.

Seven Conspiracy Theories That Aren’t Actually Conspiracy Theories

Yes… there are conspiracy theories pushed by the likes of Trump, Palin, Ryan, et al… and by Clinton, Carville, Obama, and the MSM. I’d say that both sides of the duopoly share an agenda (the enrichment of the One Percent and fuck-all to the rest of us) and that they deploy lies in the service of that agenda. That’s simply logic, not a conspiracy…


The most dastardly deeds conducted by governments and big non-government bodies aren’t secrets. They’re out in the open. The problem is that we ignore them rather than they suppress them. The internet and social media are wonderful places. They constitute a marketplace of ideas, but like any marketplace, some watches are Rolex and some are fakes. One could lament the fact that some liberals and globalists still use social media, but free speech is free speech. One has to take the inane with the profound.

However, adding to the chorus of annoyance isn’t just those reading from the post-modern liberal, non-denominational, trans-human, inter-species hymn-sheet. There are also wild conspiracy theorists. They come in all intellectual shapes and sizes. There is a big difference between questioning more and being a conspiracy theorist. Questioning more means the following:

  • Challenging pervasive narratives both from inside and outside the establishment
  • Question the ethics and morality of all forms of authority
  • Questioning whether the things designed to keep us safe are actually causing us harm
  • Questioning whether the supposed causes and justifications for war are true or just

These are just some examples. However, if one takes even a casual look at Facebook or Twitter, one can find myriad conspiracy theories. There are of course some genuine dark conspiracies, but much of what conspiracy theorists agonise about is an “open conspiracy”. It’s not that they suppress the truth as much as we ignore it. Most of what people think is done by a dark gloved hand is there for all to see, so long as they take the time to see it. The following examples are open facts that many tend to distort by pretending they’re part of a deeper conspiracy.

1. The Deep State

The deep state manifestly exists. It’s a concept to denote the broadly uniform agenda pushed for by individuals in organisations like the CIA, NSA, Pentagon, NSA, big finance, and members of Congress. None of these things is secret. To take one example… arms-makers want to sell, war allows them to sell more, members of the government who are on the take from arms dealers (in one way or another) will push for war. It’s logic, not metaphysics.

2. Russia and the Donbass

Here is one from the liberal MSM side of things. Contrary to popular myth (enforced by the MSM), not all conspiracy theories are from alternative media and certainly, not all are from the libertarian right. The conspiracy theory goes, “Russia invaded the Donbass”. Well, Russia hasn’t invaded the Donbass, although even if they did, it wouldn’t be so much an invasion as it would be de-facto recognition of the sovereignty of the Donetsk and Lugansk Peoples Republics. If it existed, it’d be Russia aiding a fraternal friend. Many in Russia and the Donbass want that to happen. Nevertheless, the current Russian government has thus far aimed at solving the conflict without coming to the military assistance of their allies. Russia took a different approach to its friends in the legitimate government of Syria.

Next, the MSM conspiracy theorists say, “There are Russian weapons in the Donbass”. Of course, there are. There are Russian weapons all over the globe because like US weapons, they mass-produced them over several decades. In the case of the Donbass, most Russian weapons are old-Soviet models taken from the increasingly defeated fledgling Ukrainian/Kiev army. One can find Russian weapons everywhere from Angola to Lebanon. If you can found them there, of course, they’re in former Soviet territory on the border of the modern Russian Federation. It’s not rocket science, it’s just some old rockets that one can easily purchase virtually anywhere in the world.

3. Israel-Palestine 

Many Israeli politicians want to annex what is left of Palestine. This isn’t a conspiracy; it’s a stated agenda. Its advocates don’t hide it. The fact that many in the wider world don’t care about this agenda shows that either they’re in league with the interests of such politicians or that they simply are indifferent. Again, nothing secretive.

4. Régime-Change

Obama said, “Assad must go”. Obama tried to get him to go and he failed.

Bush said, “Saddam must go”, and he went.

Hillary & Co said, “Gaddafi must go”, and he went. She even gloated about it on camera, saying, “We came, we saw, he died”. Far from a closeted conspiracy, Hillary Clinton waved her blood-soaked hands for the world to see.

Clear open facts easily debunked the lies that the aforementioned figures used to sell their régime-change agenda. Those “questioning more” did so then. The sad reality that those with vested interests didn’t listen was because they simply didn’t care about the facts. They were and remain driven by their agenda.

5. Surveillance State 

Many speculated that US government agencies of the have the means to spy on private citizens. Edward Snowden and the Wikileaks Vault 7 release detailed just how they accomplished this. The beauty of Wikileaks is that it provides facts for the often intelligent speculation that the powers-that-be deride as wild conspiracy theories. Here one sees that intelligent speculation is different from making up a complex web of Illuminati-controlled reptilians who seek to do what the very real CIA is doing with apparent ease.

6. The EU

Many think that the EU is a dark conspiracy that intends to erode the sovereignty of nation-states. European leaders from Monet and Schuman to Junker and Barroso said just this. Just because their speeches are often too boring to listen to, doesn’t mean that they aren’t making them. Such men favour closer European integration and “harmonisation” (homogenisation) to create a single united Europe. Agree or disagree with the goal, but don’t say it’s supine.

7. George Soros

Many conspiracy theorists say that Soros is using his vast finances to fund violent protests, which are often the prelude to régime-change. HE IS! Moreover, he says so, as do the websites of his organisations like Move On and Open Society. The scary thing about Soros isn’t that he’s secretive. The scary thing is that Western governments and the UN allow him to use his wealth to destabilise sovereign states, defying international law.

I’m sympathetic with those who look for a hidden hand in all foul acts and deeds. Sometimes, people feel powerless before the fact that grave injustices exist in the world. However, as Shakespeare said, “The fault… is not in the stars but in ourselves, that we are underlings”. The best way to fight the problems arising from open conspiracies against justice, morality, and legality, is to fight them in the open using facts and opinions derived from a thorough analysis of those facts.
