corruption

A prime locale to talk bribery, suspect campaign funding, and all other instances of political corruption. The shadier, the better.

    Theresa May's Father

    Theresa May's Father

    Theresa May's Father, Reverend Hubert Brasier, was born on 20th August 1917 at 61 Clonmore Street, Wandsworth, London. Like many people a century ago, his was a home birth. Hubert’s father, Tom Brasier, was a military man. He had served as a sergeant in the King's Royal Rifles, but was a clerk by the time Hubert was born. Hubert's mother's maiden name was Amy Margaret Patterson and they had married 8 years prior in Hampshire. Amy and Tom’s first son, James David Brasier, had died within a year of his birth in 1911 in Uttaranchal, India, where Tom Brasier had been deployed whilst in service. Two years later, in 1919, Hubert was joined by his younger sister and only other sibling Jean Robina Brasier.

    Surviving the Realization that Your Parents are Sabotaging You

    Surviving the Realization that Your Parents are Sabotaging You

    My parents were what I believe to be, relatively young, when they had me. I was their first born and of course, there's going to be mistakes - I don't think there's any parent that exists who is perfect.

    The Real Revolution

    The Real Revolution

    What is a revolution? This word is used by many throughout the world daily, especially the United States. We hear the words “Political Revolution”, we hear the words “leader of the revolution”, we hear the words “I am part of the revolution”. What does that mean? What is a “revolution”? And more importantly what is The Revolution? Is it the destruction of the established government? Is it the change of the economic structure of the government? Is it a violent uprising? Or is it a peaceful movement? In this article I will explain to you what a revolution is, what The Revolution is, and how Students & Youth for a New America is at the very mantle of this revolution.

    Dear Mr. President,

    Dear Mr. President,

    I don't really know where to start. I knew that things were going to change when I heard that you had been voted into the White House, but I didn't realize how drastic that change would be.

    Contempt; An Election of Fear and Treason

    This is not a conspiracy theory, the following is provable beyond any reasonable doubt, it is a collection of facts, actions, counter actions and laws/legislations.

    There's Something About Theresa

    There's Something About Theresa

    I am strongly of the opinion that both Labour and the Conservatives are just as bad as one another, hence, in September 2016, in the wake of the EU referendum, I joined the Liberal Democrats.

    Just as It’s Always Been

    Just as It’s Always Been

    Trying to make sense of the polarization in the United States and in the world at large is daunting, especially in the context of perhaps the most thorough and consistent barrage of propaganda I’ve ever encountered, propaganda not from official state organs but from an angry oligarchy whose will has been thwarted but whose tentacles still manage to strangle our society on every level.

    Money and the Individualist–Collectivist Divide

    Money and the Individualist–Collectivist Divide

    Politics, in large measure, deals with the art of reconciling individual and collective interests. The overwhelming majority of humanity (with the possible exception of abandoned children who grew up as hermits) inhabits both spheres. The hardiest individuals generally use money and tools and roads and water supplies, perhaps listen to radio and television, read and frequently form parts of families. The most dedicated collectivist does some things alone and usually, at least at times, values privacy.

    Collaborative Affairs

    Collaborative Affairs

    A group of murderers, rapists, robbers, embezzlers and their attorneys and publicists sit around a huge rectangle of tables set with linen and silver and crystal discussing what to do about the violence perpetrated against them by law enforcement authorities, noting how harmful it was to their aspirations and goals, not to mention their persons and goods.

    Laura Kuenssberg

    Laura Kuenssberg

    A few years ago I wrote a Blog where I questioned the so called 'impartiality' of the BBC. It wasn't the first time I had noticed a stream of blatant propaganda which could only benefit the Conservative Party, aired by the BBC in the guise of unbiased news. Usually it would be a tabloid style report, that tried to pour scorn on anyone who opposed the Tory stances. After a while I started to see a pattern of deceit appearing that was then impossible to be unseen once gazed upon. A channel that I trusted because of their supposed impartiality, were starting to take on some of the traits normally seen on a state media channel in a far flung eastern realm. In that time there has been one member of the BBC political team who has left me flabbergasted by the rhetoric and her complete disregard for impartiality. I got so angry recently by her behaviour that I decided I needed to investigate who Laura Kuenssberg actually is? Why does she seem to support the UK Conservatives? But most of all what made her like this? A public stooge with a separate agenda than the one dictated to her by the BBC charter. My investigation led me back through her family history to try and discover the seeds of potential influence. To search for the root of influence I started to regard those who obviously have had influence over Kuenssberg through her life, her parents and grandparents. Recently David Cameron became offended when people questioned his father's offshore banking. I understand people being protective over their family, but this isn't name calling in the school yard and defensive reactions just increases suspicion. I'm sure Laura Kuenssberg may be offended by me including her family in this Blog, but people will ask questions when she is appearing to use a public platform with a hidden agenda.

    Reflections on Political Insults and Incoherence

    Reflections on Political Insults and Incoherence

    Perhaps my writing and my sharing of information that I find relevant during this Orwellian period (hopefully not an epoch) in United States history is proving somewhat meaningful, at least as gauged by the reactions of those who oppose my perspectives. This morning an Obama - Clinton supporter called me a fascist for opposing Clinton’s efforts to intervene in Syria and yesterday several somewhat more intellectually inclined opponents of anything Trump tried to convince me that the intelligence community driven Russia-gate soft coup attempt was fully validated. The latter with cogent arguments, which I respect, the former with the traditional insult driven, factually deficient drivel that is all too common among internet trolls. Actually, I do not react as negatively to trolls as do many others. If they are reading what I publish then perhaps over the long term some of it will sink in, and they do give me insights into the tactics favored by those on behalf of whom they troll; valuable data.
