Four very expensive words: “This time it’s different”

Much of today’s economic and financial discourse revolves around the impact of new technology on our lives, as if this were something new. It’s not. The repetitive economic cycle is also as old as the hills, as is speculation.

 

If you doubt this think about the Book of Genesis. Remember when the Pharaoh awoke, petrified by a dream? He dreamed that he had seen seven cows, “attractive and plump”, feeding by the Nile. But soon these beasts were followed by seven skinny, ugly cows which proceeded to eat the fat cows.

 

Terrified, the Pharaoh called for Joseph, who explained that the dreams represented the fact that seven years of plenty tends to be followed by seven years of famine. The cows represented the good times followed by the bad times. Joseph urged the Pharaoh to set aside food in the good times, to feed the Egyptians when things turned down.

 

There in Genesis is Joseph, the first truly prudent finance minister, explaining a seven-year economic cycle, the type of which we are all well used to in the western world. Due to having economic cycles, we also have people who are willing to speculate on the future trend of these cycles, or on new technology that will affect the trend.

 

Historically, because humans are social animals and we tend to behave like a herd, religious leaders have regarded anything that has driven the herd or the flock to extremes as highly dangerous.

 

Speculation is one such danger, and for centuries speculation was forbidden in religious teaching precisely because of what it did to human nature. Speculation fuelled greed and fear, both of which are inherently destabilising.

 

As a result, St Thomas Aquinas preached about the “just price”, whereby a “good man” shouldn’t knowingly sell anything for more than it’s worth. Under no circumstance should he lend money for interest to anyone else to bet on the cycle.

 

Undermining rationality

 

For St Augustine, speculation – which he termed “appetitus divitiarum infinitus”, or the unlimited lust for gain – was among the deadliest of the seven deadly sins. But humans love financial speculation.

 

The word “speculation” comes from the Latin “speculari” which means to be on the look-out for trouble. Even the Roman forum had a corner reserved for the speculari. These lads (and lassies) have long dominated markets, manipulating human nature and undermining rationality in pursuit of riches.

 

New technology always attracts new speculators because of its ability to influence the trend of the economy. When money is cheap, the incentive to borrow, to drive up prices, and sell on to the next guy (pocketing the difference) is always with us.

 

Think about what is happening with Bitcoin. The price of the cryptocurrency is rocketing based on the notion that it will ultimately replace money as we know it. This may or may not happen. But Bitcoin’s price has risen by 1,525% this year alone.

Bitcoin

Or consider speculation on the share prices of technology companies, some of which have yet to make a profit but are valued at billions of euro. Some will end up delivering but many won’t. Amazon’s share price is up 55% this year; that of its Chinese equivalent, Alibaba, is up 99%.

 

Once speculative mania takes hold, all sorts of people who normally remain aloof from these episodes are tempted to get involved on the promise of quick riches.

 

We’ve witnessed, through the ages, mass speculation in technologies; canals, railways, electricity companies, cars, radios, and, most recently, the dotcom boom and crash. All these technologies changed the world, but fortunes were made and lost betting on precisely how, when, and in what form the change would take place.

 

There is a huge difference between speculating and investing. The speculator typically starts with a little money and hopes to make a lot, quickly. The investor, in contrast, starts with a lot of money and hopes to make a little, more slowly.

 

All boom-and-bust cycles tend to follow similar paths and are always, as now, underpinned initially by low interest rates and cheap credit. The most expensive four words of all are: “This time it’s different”.

 

To understand the credit cycle better we must reject classical economics, which takes the irrational human out of the equation, and recognise the importance of the human propensity to panic, indulge in herd behaviour, and believe our own propaganda.

 

From euphoria to panic

 

Credit booms go in stages. Punters oscillate from optimism and euphoria to depression and panic – a journey that can only lead to the destruction of wealth. Most people are what is known in financial markets as “momentum investors”, those who follow the crowd, buoyed up by the excitement of it all, rather than “value investors”, who are constantly asking themselves whether prices are reflecting real value or something else.

 

The predominance of momentum investors has the effect of amplifying the high and low points of cycles. It is this sort of behaviour that leads to bubbles and can also push the economy out-of-kilter for long periods. It is simply not true, as classical economics contends, that the self-interested economy naturally rights itself and finds equilibrium.

 

In fact, the opposite is the case. The self-interest of banks, market players, and leveraged speculators can produce long inflationary periods or leave us stuck in stretches of unemployment and deficient demand. We know this in Ireland too well.

 

Panics can also be sparked by relatively trivial events, and the financial system can move very quickly from a position of rude health to one of fragility. The great American economist, Hyman Minsky, identified five stages of a credit crisis: displacement, boom, euphoria, profit-taking, and panic.

 

At the beginning, something real happens to disrupt the old order. This can be a monetary event, such as quantitative easing, or an innovation, such as the internet, Amazon, or Uber.

 

For example, since 2008, central banks have pumped trillions of dollars into the financial system. This was the displacement moment. As interest rates fell, those with money decided to punt – and, as ever, asset prices rose as more people speculated.

 

In the years up to 2014, the US stock market posted double-digit gains consistently. This kind of boom leads to gearing, as banks fall over themselves to get involved. This process drives prices ever higher. Balance sheets play tricks on both lenders and borrowers. But success breeds a healthy disregard for the chances of failure.

 

During the euphoric stage, leverage amplifies prices, and people, who are emboldened by previous gains, drive up the prices of more and more esoteric assets. A favourite of mine is the Bloomberg Wine & Cheese Index which measures the prices of posh cheese and wine. It is up 34% this year.

 

The giddiness in the euphoric period is also reflected by people investing in places they can hardly locate on the map. In the past 12 months, the stock market of Vietnam rose by 43%, driven largely by Americans.

 

We then move towards the profit-taking period, as some savvy players take these lofty levels as a signal to cash in their chips. A prescient few take profits.

 

We are already seeing this in the US stock market, which has run out of steam and is now trading side-ways. Typically, this begins the process of unravelling. When the herd realises that prices are falling, everyone rushes for the door, in panic. The edifice collapses, fortunes are lost, and we start again.

 

The five-stage cycle can take time to play out, and it never runs exactly the same as in previous cycles. But the five stages remain a handy model for analysis. You might want to speculate what stage the Dublin commercial property market is at.

 

The essence of a credit cycle is a build-up of debt combined with old-fashioned human nature fuelling humanity’s pathological optimism as we end-up believing our own propaganda.

 

As today’s financial markets go ever higher, and the gap between valuation and prices becomes more and more stretched, it would seem injudicious to ignore the repeated warnings from history and overlook our capacity for individual and collective self-delusion.

 

As we venture into the New Year, leaving the Christmas period behind, maybe it’s time to go back to the Bible and scripture to get a clearer sense of the future.

    Good to see you back on track David … Speculation = Bad, Investment = Good. So, why not tax the hell out of speculation and ease up on taxing investment. It might be called ‘The Sheep Dog Tax’.

        STL,

        Current veterans of this blog will know whom I referring to.
        The culprit trolls me unjustifiably ;
        Yet, I never troll him.
        And, when I do respond I do so with civility.
        Yet, he does not behave similarly

        HE NEEDS A GOOD KICK UP THE HOLE IF U ASK ME SO.

        The topic of Sound Money is paramount to the long-term solution to overcoming the Banksters 2 main elements of their Scam Bundle :

        1_
        Private Central Banking

        2_
        Fractional [ Actually, not even "Fractional" now ; Since some decades already, it "Zero" ; But, I resort to term Fractional so as to keep it simple & familiar to the audience ] Reserve [ If Zero ( which it is really now ) ; ==> No Reserves required ] Banking performed by Private Commercial Banks under license by the Private Central Bank.

        If all currency Gold, & Silver also, ONLY, & thus the best Currency, vis. MONEY ;
        ==> None of above ;
        Unless, extra Gold, & Silver, loaned to ;

    We are all speculators at the end of the day. Where there is a market for a service or product, speculation goes hand in hand. Housing: We buy a house because we believe that over 20-30 years, buying is less than renting. Marriage: We get married or divorced because we believe that this is the correct choice to make. We pay into a pension saving scheme beause we believe that the pension service provider will be around to fufill its committments.

    The American stock markets hardly trended sideway in 2017:
    S&P500: 19.4%
    Dow Jones 25.1%
    Nasdaq Composite 28.2%
    https://www.cnbc.com/2017/12/29/reuters-america-factbox-u-s-stock-market-performance-in-2017.html

    Bubbles always last longer than expected, and usually end when there is no “greater fool” around to sell on to, or with a game-changing event. Pundits were predicting the collapse of the Irish housing from about 2004 or earlier. Will rising interest rates in 2018 signal the end of the various speculative bubbles currently in progress?

  4. sean_the_lepreachaun

    “For example, since 2008, central banks have pumped trillions of dollars into the financial system. This was the displacement moment.”

    I thought that this was the main idea of Bitcoin, to stop this from happening by removing central bank/government interference, and hence stop the train of events preceding this? This could be misconstrued as a advocacy of Bitcoin (and the likes).

    After 2008, quantitative easing and the record low interest rates environment went on (and for interest rates, continues to go on) for far too long in my opinion, as the generation of asset bubbles across the globe must be of huge concern by now. But imagine what would have happened if we were all using cryptocurrencies and there was no central bank stimulus at all at outset! A spiral of depression would have ensued.

    The only way I could see Bitcoin working if there was some way to ensure that the initial “displacement moment” is always due to central bank interference. I think each recession looks a little different to the last, and there’s no way of knowing what will cause it, so I’m not convinced by that argument. When that next deep recession comes, I want my government ready with the stimulus the economy needs, just hope they don’t overdo it this time!

    • McCawber

      Greed is always the cause of economic crashes.
      How could one create a greed index.
      Bitcoin is certainly a greed indicator, just too soon to use as a true reference.
      Sovereign borrowing might be a possibility.

      • Truthist

        Greed is not necessarily a bad thing.

        Greed keeps ewe alive.

        Greed keeps piglet alive ;
        Piglet beyond the number of teats dies.

        Foolish Greed & Base Greed are bad though.

    • I want my government ready with the stimulus the economy needs, just hope they don’t overdo it this time!

      It is the government that is the problem in the first place. Put the thief in charge of the jail!

      • Truthist

        I thought that u wanted the government not to interfere — even if they sincerely well intentioned for all the populace + without detriment to foreign countries or the environment + future generations of any & all countries — in the economy ?
        Other than necessarily ensuring that there operates :
        conditions of employment
        freedom of market place for competitors & customers
        inter alia.

        So, why do u say this ? ;

        I want my government ready with the stimulus the economy needs, just hope they don’t overdo it this time !

    @ Truthist/goldbug,

    Deluded as usual. The article isn’t about bitcoin.

  6. The commentary appears to be based on the assumption that a free market actually exists.

    What we have been trying to get debated is the fact that there is no such thing as a free market left.

    Not the bond market
    Not the stock market
    Not the housing market.
    Not the currency market

    Name me a market not controlled and manipulated by central bankers/politicians?

    Currency is controlled.
    Huge amounts of money are issued into circulation.
    Interest rates are controlled and managed by bureaucrats who think they know better.
    The stock markets are controlled by the same bankers who use free (to them) newly issued money to buy stocks and control the market direction . Note the lack of volatility.
    The bond market is ditto. Bonds are bought by central bankers and so the money is issued into circulation and the interest rates are artificially low.
    Low interest rates cause cheap rates for mortgages. Demand is increased and real estate prices rocket upwards.

    Spare me the idea that we have all knowing , all seeing, compassionate people gently guiding us to Naverna.

    Talking of speculation. The biggest speculation is that the central bankers and politicians know what they are doing . Currently there has been no profit except to go with the flow directed by the powers that be. People and investors have climbed on the train that leads ever upward without any downsides or corrections in excess of five percent. This is not a normal market.

    Speculators should be left to function as they nip off the excesses of a free market rather than cause it as claimed. A successful speculator buys at the bottom and sells at the top, thus adding demand at the bottom and supply at the top of any market. An unsuccessful speculator is soon broke. It is the artificial controls and manipulation of bankers/politicians that lead to excesses.

    A manipulated market will be out of kilter and eventually collapse. The collapse will be multiples worse than if the market was left alone. The law of diminishing returns guarantees that eventually the controllers run out of stimulus and other options. Painted into a corner there will be no escape.

    Even the blossoming of the crptos is a result of this mismanagement as all the excess currency floating around the world looks for a place to hide.

    Blaming speculators for the state of affairs is a smoke screen to hide and obscure the real causes; The unlimited production of money issued into the economy.

    Saying debt is a problem is still to ignore the cause of all the debt. Right again. All fiat currency is issued as a debt!! Check it out. Most do not believe that statement, that fact. Thus the issuance of all that money since 2008 which was to “save us” actually ensnares us. Who would do such a thing if our best interests were considered. Every bit , every single unit of currency, is a debt. Thus we are all enslaved by debt rather than being saved by the bankers.

    This is insidious and criminal behavior. We are controlled by a crime syndicate for their own benefit , not ours.

    This just a couple of examples of the facts being presented.

    DMW himself is dealing in speculation and not facts.

    His whole opinion does not stand the scrutiny of the facts. It suggests there is a free market when in fact it does not exist. He has yet to discuss or present one word about the central banking scheme. I wonder why that is?

    This is a very erudite and well-written article which I truly liked. I also think that graphs and subchapters make it nicer to read.

    I liked this observation:
    “There is a huge difference between speculating and investing. The speculator typically starts with a little money and hopes to make a lot, quickly. The investor, in contrast, starts with a lot of money and hopes to make a little, more slowly.”

    Unnatentive readers might point out that “no, look at the Soros’s and Goldman Sachs’s of this world – they are speculators and they start with a lot of money”. Wrong, wrong, wrong – they start with a little money of their own and a lot of someone e l s e’s money: McWilliams’ observation holds.
    The crypto-bubble most remind me of the South Sea bubble. Now I await the for the stoning and crucifixion from the crypto people.

    A brilliant explanation of the South Sea/1920s stock/dot.com/crypto bubbles and their late “investors”:

    Did he say “ripple”?????????????????!!!

    “Punters oscillate from optimism and euphoria to depression and panic – a journey that can only lead to the destruction of wealth. Most people are what is known in financial markets as “momentum investors”” – the best preparation to understand the last stages of a bubble is not to study the markets, but bi-polar people.

    “But the five stages remain a handy model for analysis. You might want to speculate what stage the Dublin commercial property market is at.” – just before the unravelling, I’m almost sure of that. This year we will see the last shot on the Dublin property bubble, but as AT THE END OF THE DAY, rents are connected with incomes, and as my comparison from the previous article of how many pints you could buy in 2006 and now, the incomes are falling because the prices are rising, there will be no more room to squeeze. We see the first signs of it – vulture funds increasing the numbers of repossession court cases (which have been very, very, very few in Ireland! – compared for instance to Spain and their property bubble burst). Last but not least, the speculative capital from Asia is starting to leave Europe (remember those London luxury apartments bought by the Chinese for unheard of prices, yet empty and not making any money? – that might more than half now).

    “As I urged you on my departure to Macedonia, you should stay on at Ephesus to instruct certain men not to teach false doctrines or devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculation rather than the stewardship of God’s work, which is by faith. The goal of our instruction is the love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and a sincere faith.”

      • Dear Reader

        Lying in my bed in this hotel room in Rathmines tonight has been both hilarious and concerning. Having enjoyed an amusing weekend in a diverse, tolerant city that openly flaunts and celebrates its ambitions to lay out a welcome mat for all, it’s slightly disturbing to read these blog comments from a motley crew of bitter, resentful, reactionary heterosexuals like Adam Byrne, Truthist & Grzegorz Kolodziej.

        The irony of their whining during the opening innings of Ireland’s first openly Gay Taoiseach is delicious. I guess there are still some sanctuaries left for such saddoes- a Caribbean humid hurricane zone where delusional folk blithely accept their inheritance of British colonialist homophobia is one, the cult of the Roman Catholic Church is another and whatever parallel dimension to our shared consensus/consensual reality which hosts Truthist completing a tiresome trilogy of bigotry expressed as robust freedom of speech.

        You can have your freedom of speech, lads, but you’re not free from the consequences of expressing your nonsense, namely ridicule and scorn from the vast majority of lurkers who read these comments. I’ve met some delightful women and Queer folk who enjoy David’s perspectives and I always ask them why they don’t join in the comment mosh-put. Invariably the response is they just can’t be bothered with the self indulgent sausage-fest of patriarchal entitlement which the usual suspects wallow in like pigs in shit.

        I have news for you losers, not only do I reject the spurious claims that finally challenging millennia of male heterosexist white privilege amounts to ???? Queer folk ‘sticking their views down hapless disgruntled heterosexual throats, I think the assumed grievances of these concern-trolls is a covert attempt to silence potential LGBTQI contributions to this blog.

        I’d like to take this opportunity to reach out and welcome all ye rainbow ???? coloured lurkers reading these comments and invite you all to contribute to discussions about ???????? Ireland’s future under the stewardship of an Out Gay Fine Gael Taoiseach.

        I will be monitoring this blog forensically in 2018 and won’t hesitate to dish out caustic retribution to any homophobic troll who still thinks they can fly their prejudicial ‘freak flag’ under cover of Normcore Regular Guy.

        And, u call urself a soccer-man + are eager to come across as having a social conscience for Irish Catholic Nationalists in North East of Ireland ;
        But, u have that sentiment ONLY AFTER THE IRA CEASED ALL ACTIVITIES ;
        HOW CONVENIENT FOR U.

        WHERE WAS UR SOCIAL CONSCIENCE FOR THE LITTLE BOYS PLAYING SOCCER ON THE BEACH MURDERED BY ISRAELI FORCES.

        And, David “heart-broken” about a Syrian boy visibly happy living in much better conditions near Turkey border than the hell-holes which are Gaza & West-Bank under constant Israeli assault in so many ways, or Izy Secret Intelligence Service [ ISIS ] private army of mercenaries committing the most evil atrocities on Christian & Muslim people — e.g. crucifying Children alive until death — in Syria.

        And, u Adam have children ;
        Are u not concerned about the campaign to homosexualise boys by u know who ?
        Have u no self respect ?

        And, u meant to be an Irish man based in the Caribbean ;
        U not uncover whom exactly were the slave traders & slave plantation owners ?
        It sure as hell was not the Irish.
        Indeed, most of the slaves — & dismiss that oxymoron of a term indentured servant in this context — in North America were the Irish.

        And, u Adam who have children ;
        Where is ur social conscience about what is basically both nuts + satanic / evil campaign to legalise abortion / murder of Pre-born Babies & Infant Babies ?

        There is a revolution happening by real men initially & being joined by awoken women against that agenda as promoted by u know who.
        And, interestingly, Canada is to the forefront.

        U not concerned about a society that indoctrinates men to be shoving their penises up each others holes ?
        And, to youth & children too ?
        Because, the “gay” campaigners are constantly seeking to lower the age of being allowed to stick it up the boy child’s ass.

        Caribbean folk sure do not like that stuff Adam.

        So, u would wanna reflect on who u have collaborated with ;
        U know who is a self-admitted Hasbara-GCHQ Mole.
        Do u know what that means as one who is telling the whole world that u admire the Provos ?

        Adam Byrne:

        As for the LBGTQZ agenda, I have a pain in my hole with it (pun intended). I’m fed up with them ramming it down everyone’s throat (pun intended).

        As far as I’m concerned they can go fuck themselves (pun intended).

        This year I’m devoting myself to the ‘straight agenda’ and pontificating on how good it is to be straight – let’s face it, none of us would be here if it wasn’t for men liking women, although these days if you look at someone sideways then it’s apparently some kind of sexual harassment – you would wonder how a man is supposed to meet a woman at all.

        Grzegorz Kolodziej:

        In that case, perhaps you would be interested in knowing that until 1992, WHO was classifying homosexuality as a mental disorder.
        And it’s not that anything has changed in science since – ideology changed, and its financing changed. Someone in the Spectator had the guts to write that the same courage that was needed in the 1970s to come out as gay is needed today to come out as anti-gay.
        Whereas I distinguish between gays (political orientation) and homosexuals (sexual orientations) – I’ve nothing against homosexuals (I like Oscar Wilde) as long as they keep it private and don’t adopt kids.
        But
        As Europe is now turning into a Caliphate, our discussion is academic.
        Who will defend those gays know – those who they offended and tormented with court cases millions of times?
        As people who suffer the most from the Zionist extremism are decent Jews, people who will suffer the most from gayism are decent homosexuals.
        P.S. Do you know that there was a group in Ireland Gays Against Gay Marriage? In my opinion, they were not gays, but homosexuals who were NOT mentally ill.

    • Adelaide, here is a well reasoned analysis of your question.

      https://www.goldmoney.com/research/goldmoney-insights/how-quickly-will-the-dollar-collapse

      “The US Government is obviously ill-equipped for this drastic change in its circumstances. The correct response is to eliminate its budget deficit entirely, and refuse to bail out failing banks and businesses. Bankruptcies will be required to send surplus dollars to money heaven and therefore stabilise the dollar’s purchasing power. A change in the Fed’s attitude towards its banks and currency is, however, as unlikely as that of the Reichsbank subsequent to the Versailles Treaty.”

    • michaelcoughlan

      Many happy returns Adelaide.

      The answer to your question is that the dollar has been crashing at the rate of 5.5% per year for the last 12 years as measured by its capacity to purchase a bid mac in the US.

      Another observation is that the s@p 500 was 1388 around may 2008 and is 2720 now almost twice the price in 10 years. The value remains the same but the reason the price is twice as high is because the buck only buys half what it did 10 years ago. Not mcwilliams nor anyone else will speak about out of control monetary policy. Crying shame really.

    There is one simple book that will educate and inform the ordinary punters regarding investments. It’s focused on the stock market but includes enough common sense for other investments. The main focus is buying at a sufficient margin of safety in essence buying a dollar at 70 cents or less. It’s recommended by Warren Buffett and he has used its strategies with some success. The focus is on value investing, diversification and long term holding of securities.
    ‘The Intelligent Investor’ Benjamin Graham.
    MIFID regulations come into force in the EU from January 2018.
    I’ve spent the last two years researching this subject from the point of view of an ordinary punter. The cheapest way for an ordinary person to access the stock market is via exchange traded funds such as Vanguard S & P 500 (VOO) or Blackrock or EU equivalents. This gives a good level of diversification. There are different tax implications depending on where the ETF is domiciled. Research hard invest slowly.

    “Most people are what is known in financial markets as “momentum investors”, those who follow the crowd, buoyed up by the excitement of it all, rather than “value investors”, who are constantly asking themselves whether prices are reflecting real value or something else.”

    In society it seems that we have momentum/political economics and value/real value economics.

    My problem with the Irish failure of real value economics, is the degree of failure.

    We are told that NAMA has 3bn value of assets left to shift, with a loan value of 27bn. This means that the Irish University educated lending professionals overvalued the debt by
    not 10%
    not 45%
    not nama discount 65%

    But 900%.

    Last years papers pointed to one example of 1200% debt overvaluation by Irelands professional lenders that paid themselves up front bonus payments.

    Id say that the current commercial activity is the working down of restructured debt/land banks. Its not some organic bubble. I dont know the real value/sustainable lease value of commercial property.

    • Metropolitan Hillbilly

      The stock market and brokers are dependent on momentum trading as their commissions are made regardless of the direction of the market and increase with volatility. The ordinary punter pays a disproportionate toll via commission charges/stamp duty when trading in shares if he engages in constant buy/sell trades. In addition the tax authorities take a major chunk unless the trades are made within a tax shelter account available in some jurisdictions. It’s rarely cost effective unless you’re a high net worth individual and etf’s are a much more effective solution eg Vanguard/Blackrock passive funds have net costs of approx $10 per $10,000 invested. It’s a dirty little secret that some insurance/pension operations in Ireland are creaming off 5-20% from every €100 invested via commission structures and management fees. That’s a major cost to any individual investor’s pension pot when up to 20% has been syphoned off and compounding is factored in over 20-40 years.

  12. mike flannelly

    Apologies.
    I think nama paid 60%
    Nama discount was 40%

    Not sure is the 27bn with or without the discount.

    It is a lot easier to calculate the sustainable “real value” residental property debt.

    A home mortgage plus property tax payment is sustainable up to 30% of household net income. This provides a built in safety factor for other expenses. 1,300 mth for median earning couples.

    Sustainable rent for young workers is
    probably no more than 25% of net income. Ideal rent would be 20% of net. Rent is also set based on debt costs plus property costs.

    Rising seven times from a low base is not a guide for setting sustainable rent.

    Rent for a “sustainable” buy to let mortgage is usually 150% of the mortgage payments.

    Real value economics isnt political.

      I very skeptical about the Nazis ;

      Most, or rather … verging on all”, of the core leadership do not look Germanic.

      Fascism of that type is unsustainable psychologically on a nation ;
      Israel is much more cute in how it operates fascism.
      Actually, they stole many ideas from the Nazis.
      1 of the brains behind Israel & the “The Frankfurt School” is Leo Strauss.
      And, he was a major admirer of the Nazis all along even after the end of WW2 until his death in 1973.

      Hitler was a placed agent of the Rothschilds ;
      He later went rogue.

      Ditto, Stalin.
      Actually, Harriman — the representative of Rothshilds in USA, & Harriman in turn using Bush family as their go-getters — was flown into USSR by the Allies to run USSR in war against Hitler because Stalin had got a nervous breakdown due to Hitler overwhelming him.
      It ain’t easy being an actor ; Mussolini [ Miles Mathis contends that Benito Mussolini was a Judaic ] or Hitler or Stalin.
      Goebbels was a supreme actor too.
      Churchill was a puppet of Victor Rothschild.
      Victor Rothschild was the actual 5th man.
      And, he was the puppet master behind the then Apostles — almost to a man … ? 8-) … homosexual — from whom 4 were outed as top spies for USSR

      Victor Rothschild I believe not a homosexual.
      Churchill a bisexual ;

      A sodomising rapist of boys when he a boarder at Eton ;
      Boarding schools are nasty places anyway.
      But, the Irish are very keen on them when they can afford.
      And, a Frmsn Lodge for the students in the very top ones.
      Sure why not ;
      After all, Daddy is a Frmsn anyway.
      But, very naive construction businessman Michael -- Christ-mocking Jerk -- Coughlan gets aggrieved at hearing about any control of Irish State by the Frmsns.

      The burnt-offering numbers do not add up according to Mel Gibson's mother RIP ;
      She said that there were more Jews in Europe immediately after WW2 than before.
      Also, the authoritative Judaic manuscript for census of world Judaic population states :

      Before WW2 [ WW2 actually started in 1938 when world Jewry declared war on Germany ] ;
      Yr 1933 ; 15,315,000

      After WW2 ;
      Yr 1933 ; 15,753,000

      “…according to the World Almanac the world population of Jews increased (!) between 1933 and 1948 from 15,315,000 to 15,753,000. If the German government under Adolf Hitler had – as alleged – murdered six million Jews those losses should have been reflected in the Jewish population numbers quoted in the World Almanac.
      The suspicions raised by above numbers concerning the veracity of the allegations made against the Hitler government are confirmed by the official 3-volume report by the International Committee of the Red Cross, released 1948 in Geneva, according to which 272,000 concentration camp inmates died in German custody, about half of them Jews.
      The following article elaborates.

      A Factual Appraisal Of The ‘Holocaust’ By The Red Cross
      The Jews And The Concentration Camps:
      No Evidence Of Genocide

        “Yr 1933 ; 15,315,000
        After WW2 ;
        Yr 1933 ; 15,753,000
        “…according to the World Almanac the world population of Jews increased (!) between 1933 and 1948 from 15,315,000 to 15,753,000. If the German government under Adolf Hitler had – as alleged – murdered six million Jews those losses should have been reflected in the Jewish population numbers quoted in the World Almanac.” – no, not necessarily: millions of Jews could have been killed and many other Jews could have emigrated from Germany (as they were, which was heavily supported by the Nazi state, which even run schools where they taught them all the stuff they’d need to know about the life in Palestine) and have had kids wherever they ended up (both Jews and the Irish – as well the Italians and Poles from Galicja – were known at the time for having many kids).
        Besides, did it not occur to you that roughly the same number of Jews in 1933 and in 1948 would rather indicate a m a j o r demographic collapse? – this stagnation is comparable to the total Irish population (not to be confused with Ireland’s only population) before and after the Famine, so from 1845-1860 (if you want to compare it to 1933-1948) – the total Irish population in 1860 was more or less the same as in 1845 – except most of them ended up abroad. Btw, very few people know that over the four years AFTER the Famine more people left Ireland than DURING the four years of the Famine…

        We spoke so many times about the six million figure that there is no need to return to it. Approximately 3 million Jews were murdered by Germans in occupied Poland in WWII (not only, and even not prevailingly in concentration or death camps – btw, Auschwitz was for half of its history a German camp for Poles) + 3 million murdered Poles (plus more Poles murdered by Russians and Ukrainians) – but they were all counted as Jews for compensation purposes (if anything, they should have been counted as Poles because most of them were Polish citizens), hence the mythical figure of 6 million Jews. I mean how many times do I have to explain the same simple thing over and over again?! I’m really bored with this topic – I hate repeating myself. I thought that 3 + 3 = 6 is so simple that it doesn’t need to be repeated twice.

        • Truthist

          NO ! Grzegorz

          I am not convinced with ur some of ur crucial arguments & ur attribution as to how many Jews died [ murdered, killed in combat, & died by natural causes, died by assailants other than German, died by starvation due to Allied strategy inter alia ].
          So, for now it is 3 million Poles + x number of Jews = ? number

          That evidence I supply is outstanding evidence.

          And, the allegations about human skin being used for lamp-shades which u believed in good faith was disproved by university laboratories in USA.

          Also, Gas Asphyxiation as genocide measure has been successfully proved by forensic scientific investigation as never having occurred at any concentration camp.

          Also, the population of Jews in Germany was very low compared to Poland ;
          Certainly, even lower by the time UK joined Jewry by declaring war on Germany.
          So, much for ur “millions of Jews could have been killed and many other Jews could have emigrated from Germany”.

          Suffering is not a competition.
          A Jew has organically as much merit as any other person.
          They had that merit / worth even before the Germans put them in concentration / training camps in Central Europe for Israel
          So, there is no need to base merit / worth on suffering.

          THIS SUBJECT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

          BECAUSE … BECAUSE … BECAUSE

          IT IS THE MAIN REASON THAT POLAND IS UNDER SIEGE

          IT IS A RELIGIOUS WAR

          • Grzegorz Kolodziej

            “That evidence I supply is outstanding evidence.” – NO evidence is supplied because the author of the article on that website quotes some Red Cross report, but provides no link to it so that it can be verified (how do I know he didn’t make it up?). Other statements on that website look like manipulations, i.e.:
            “In Auschwitz alone, the official death count has dropped by almost 3 million,” – this proves that the commentator (is this the same person?) doesn’t know what he’s talking about – no official death count in Auschwitz has ever DROPPED by 3 million – this is pure bullshit and if the author doesn’t react to that bullshit, it means he agrees with it – which means he is incompetent.

            “They were permitted to distribute food parcels to major concentration camps in Germany from August 1942, and “from February 1943 onwards this concession was extended to all other camps and prisons” (Vol. 111, p. 78)” – what he doesn’t say is that there were only a few visits of the Red Cross where these food parcels were distributed.

            ““As many as 9,000 parcels were packed daily” – p a c k e d, not deliver: and how many of them were confiscated by the Nazi state, who was known for stealing everything they could put their hand on?

            ” The ICRC had special praise for the liberal conditions which prevailed at Theresienstadt” – Theresienstadt?! Is he stupid, or what? Theresienstadt was a showroom for the Red Cross. This is like estimating the conditions of the Irish during the Famine by visiting the barracks of the Irish serving in the British Army in Britain and checking their living conditions.

            “Clearly, the German authorities were at pains to relieve the dire situation as far as they were able” – yes, in 1945, when he realised they lost the war, Himmler tried to use it as a bargaining card.

            “most of the Jewish doctors from the camps were being used to combat typhus on the eastern front, so that they were unavailable when the typhus epidemics of 1945 broke out in the camps” – yes, but 1945 was not the year when people were dying on a massive-scale in death camps: how could they have been if the places where the death camps were located were already “liberated” by the USSR, and evacuated by Germans earlier on?

            “In Slovakia, for example, where Eichmann’s assistant Dieter Wisliceny was in charge, the Report states that “A large proportion of the Jewish minority had permission to stay in the country,” – so what? In Dresden, there was an active synagogue until the end of WWII, and the only nuisance the Jews had was to report to Gestapo once a week: Hitler treated German Jews very differently than other Jews (after all, a Luftwaffe general was a Jew!), and Slovakia collaborated with Germany from the start, so they got an easy ride.

            Besides, I’d rather believe German OWN WWII internal reports – and they clearly show that over 1 million people died in Auschwitz alone.

          • Grzegorz Kolodziej

            Ahh, found it! No wonder the author doesn’t provide any link, scans or even full title of the Red Cross Report and where it was published – the Red Cross Report he quotes is a report on prisoner of war camps – NOT the death camps (so it doesn’t talk about conditions in Belzec, Chelmno, Sobibor, Treblinka, Auschwitz-Birkenau and Majdanek)! No wonder he didn’t want to supply any links…

Remember the passages from the Bible I was quoting about the reinstated Israel – and how it will behave before the conversion?

            “THERE NEVER WAS A FAMINE IN IRELAND DURING THE 19th CENTURY.” – I agree – but I say Famine because it is a name that took roots, same as “Emergency” (even though the latter is equally inadequate). Everyone knows what I’m talking about when I say Great Famine: that it wasn’t like bad luck on horse betting.

            Ok?
            If you are trying to convince me that over millions of people died in Auschwitz from typhus (most of them Jews), then I’m sorry – I will have to say: you’re wrong.
            After all – we are interested in the truth. Are we?

            over millions = over million. Technically, the Jews were being murdered in Birkenau – but I don’t want to go down the splitters.

            @ Grzegorz,

            “There was a Holocaust of the Jews too (as well as the Holocaust of the Poles).
            Ok ?”

            Holocaust = Burnt Offering = Burnt Sacrifice

            The Poles who died through the Germans by a variety of means, incl. murder, mass bombing by Luftwaffe, were not done so as Burnt Sacrifice.
            But, yes, dead bodies — however so that they died — in the concentration camps were cremated ;
            % cremated of those that died ? ;
            I do not know.

            Ditto the Jews in the concentration camps.

            //////////////////////////////

            So, it is naive of revisionist Historians of Irish History to claim that there was an Irish Holocaust in 19th century.

            NO Burnt Offerings of the over 5 million Irish by “The City” / “U know who”.
            It was a mixture of a range of causes of death by genocide during the Great Hunger.
            No Famine despite “resident of this blog” 8-) Paul Craig Roberts — & no Grzegorz, I not frequent quoter of “non-resident” PCR like u recently claimed I was ; Rather, I habitually referred to non-resident of this blog PCR as nice man who had yet to grow balls / “moral courage” ; Indeed, 1 very famous man on the internet only received a “U give ‘em hell farewell.” when he enquired of “non-resident of this blog” PCR would he kindly name the names ; “Oh, brother.” ; But, I often let a thing pass for sake of grace — recurrently states.

            I have not encountered any mention or anecdotes or evidence of cremations per The Great Hunger.

            Of course, there were other Great Hungers too preceding the most recent one.

            And, Grzegrz, I was born in a former Work House for victims of The Great Hunger.
            It in my estimation much bigger in area even than the biggest of the German Concentration Camps in any country.

            Most bloggers here could not give a pittance about the Heroin problem plaguing Ireland.

            Ditto the homosexualisation of the youth ;
            Male homosexuals are menacing many public areas now.
            And, the Garda-Landlords / Landlord-Gardai simply ignore the issue.

            And, the % of male homosexuals is much higher than the accepted figure.
            But, then again, there are those who say that this would strengthen the claim by the male homosexual community to assert themselves on society
            But, nay, it is a feature of a society gone weird.
            It is not that they are organically homosexual
            But, rather that they have other issues that through indoctrination by media & education have made them homo.
            Anyway, the Irish are noted for going to the dogs with any vice.
            Same with alcohol.
            But, they say that Whiskey is tied to the Irish since ancient times.
            Nay, whiskey is only a recent invention.
            By Irish yes.
            Even the Scotch whiskey process was invented by an Irish man.

            Medical people tell me that they are dealing with an epidemic of STDs arising from the male homosexual community & the cross-over into the heterosexuals.
            Many of these diseases cannot be cured now.
            And, it is really pulling on the government’s resources.

            Heavy drug use is very much part of homosexual scene, & is escalating homosexualisation & STD risk-taking & STD transmission & heavy drug addiction.

            Whole government social housing areas throughout Ireland are riddled with heroin addiction

            MOST BLOGGERS HERE DO NOT GIVE A DAMN BECAUSE THEY LIVE RAREFIED LIVES AWAY FROM POVERTY & THE DILINQUENCY OF THE DEGENERATES FROM THE MIDDLE CLASSES.

            Ditto “Homelessness”, & “Homelessness + Rooflessness”.

            Ditto Rent Allowance issue ; And, I wrote frequently to the government down through the years stating that Rent Allowance scheme as devised was obviously causing Profiterring by Landlords & discrimination against prospective Rent Allowance Applicants & escalation of Rents for all of the market ;
            Because :
            The Landlord gets to be privy to the tenant being able to access rent allowance through the tenant being forced to get landlord to fill RA forms etc.
            Rent Book should suffice.
            RA should be totally private matter between Tenant & Government.
            It is none of the landlord’s business.

    Bitcoin experience.
    About this time last year I decided to dip a toe into bitcoin.
    Before acting fully on my decision I backed out.
    Why.
    I tried to set up an account/wallet with one of the reputable suppliers of such services.
    Getting started proved difficult.
    Doing a trial SEPA euro transfer proved difficult.
    I was asked on more than one occasion for suitable ID.
    Anyway after going around in circles for a week I admitted defeat and gave up.
    I also lost trust in the the whole bitcoin service provision.

    Bitcoin will prove ultimately to be a scam primarily because of speculators.
    However its’ crash is likely to take a good bit longer than the experts predict.
    At some point when bitcoin and dead cat’s bounce are used in the same sentence then the end will be about a year away.

    Hopefully Adam you’ve made a large fortune, have hedged your bets, bought some gold or real estate and are becoming wary.
    What does your own crystal ball think about bitcoin’s likely performance in 2018.

    Will the great reset now scheduled for some time in 2019 be bitcoin’s death knell or will it be its’ saviour.

    In 2000 years time will David McWilliams Xth be writing articles from his pricey seaside villa in New Dublin on Venus (More likely Mars tbh) about this period of Earth’s history.

    Anyway it’s good to throw a bit of nonsense into the discussion – it shakes people out of their fixations.

      - welcome to Bitcoin. The technology of the future. You were lucky that you didn’t try to convert, say, 50 euro of your “worthless” fiat into Bitcoin, and then pay with it for coffee. Which means converting it back to fiat. And paying $40 transaction fee. Which makes this “currency” totally useless for small transactions. And any other:

    ‘Speculation is one such danger, and for centuries speculation was forbidden in religious teaching precisely because of what it did to human nature. Speculation fuelled greed and fear, both of which are inherently destabilising.’

    Yes, bull/bear market dynamics = Ecclesiates 1:9

    ‘Think about what is happening with Bitcoin. The price of the cryptocurrency is rocketing based on the notion that it will ultimately replace money as we know it. This may or may not happen. But Bitcoin’s price has risen by 1,525% this year alone.’

    And? So what..Bitcoin is now a Faith-Based Epistemology based upon The Teachings Of Natoshi Sakamoto, the mysterious Englishman who poses/posed as a Japanese anime meme, using gormless, gullible coders to clear a flight-path for the launch of his murky project, a deep-cryto space probe for his yet to be disclosed Political Will To Power. As such it can only be valued throught the lens of cultural cryptography. It acts as a repository for various alienated factions and cults from the hard-core libertartian tax-dodger to the virulent anti-State Anarchist & no amount of Rational Discourse is going to stop that stampeding bull for a wee while yet, unless the Herd stampede into Ripple thinking that’s the Bankster Crypto for the C21st. Who cares?

    That graph is dubious as the run-up in 2013 was equally ‘dramatic’ but now looks like a pimple on the palimpsest. It’s irrelevant trying to price it in terms of ‘rational statistics’ because now that Herd Culture has discovered it a decade after the Cool Kids, there’s no stopping it from either reaching the Moon or being replaced by the next ‘faith based epistemology’. Ethereum is showing extreme Cult Characteristics but the amusing potential apocalypto grim reaper of Hashgraph is deffo one to watch in this year’s crypto runners’n'riders. Some Polish bloke on here said I’d ‘missed out’ on the *fascinating* discussions on crypto on this site last year. Erm…no…just because I’m lurking not commenting doesn’t mean I’m not paying attention to the mosh-pit fisticuffs here between ye olde Golde Bugs and the super-space-age cryptonauts. But my dog died so, yes, I was out of it for a while. I can’t see I missed anything of import. For 2018 I will religiously follow the hilarious ‘debates’ BTL on this blog. And wait to see when Mr McWilliams actually addresses the revolutionary potential of all this decentralised ledger tech stuff. Probably when FiatCoin is launched by the IMF using Special Drawing Rights as a spoiler to entrance the herd…*swish, swish…bish…another one hits the basket*

    At some stage consensual/consensus reality will defer to my prophesy that the entire superstructure of crypto has merely been a beta-test for FiatCoin, FedCoin, BoECoin. As for Acquinas, the relevant quote to explain the crypto-fcUK-fest is ‘“Lord, make me chaste (sexually pure) – but not yet!”, at least for the newbs who see it all as a get-rich-quick Wild West unlike the pioneers who saw crypto as Catastrophe Insurance against Collapse. I wonder how many people have actually read what this N.S geezer actually wrote? He never intended immortality for BTC so those who compare it to Gold are beyond delusional. I long ago gave up arguing with those crypto-cultists. The only safety & wealth is in the social and political blockchain of the Spiral Tribe, as those fleeing Hurricane Alley last summer found out. How much £ $ have Branson and Schiff raised via voluntary benevolence down there in Galt’s Gulch? *smirks/rollseyes* If you’re not crazy, if you invest 5% or your net worth in all this florid nonsense you can’t come to harm if you live in a civilised society as you can always get a J-O-B in a coffee bar or working in an old folk’s home. But if you go balls-to-the-wall on it all whilst hiding behind some silly offshore identity management crap, don’t be pissed if/when it goes tits up and don’t whine when you’re called out as a Globalist Freeloader on civilisational progress. As Troubled Theresa said before she went bonkers: ““If you believe you are a citizen of the world, you’re a citizen of nowhere”. I’m fine with someone saying they come from nowhere and identify with nowhere, just so long as they don’t have the gall to also claim they’re English, Irish or any other Nation State bedrock identity either culturally or politically. Ya get me? …Sound…sorted…

    Can’t wait for the crypto ‘debates’ at Kilkenomics 2018…..

    The rest of the article is OK, correctly dismissing the current stock euphoria as the sugar rush of QE. Peak Cheap Oil hasn’t gone away, it isn’t going anywhere. It’s effects are ameliorated to some extent by the Graphene Era. I’ve moderated my Collapsenik-sim…a bit. But not much. The real collapse is in the Capital Of Global Ecosystems. Everything else is almost irrelevant. Morons talk about Bitcoin as a new Tulip Mania, neglecting to understand that one day soon, people will pay vast amounts simply to go somewhere they can pretend the planet isn’t irrevocably trashed by industrial insanity. Iceland tourism is a prime example of this escape-from-apocalypse-nonsense.

    Nothing has changed, there is nothing new under the sun. Crypto was encoded within Pythagoras, etc. The only real wealth is the planetary resources we are plundering and the social capital we are ruthlessly destroying. No amount of gold or cypto will help you if everyone else is descending into chaos. No Caribbean island will be a fortress, as Branson and Schiff amusingly have found out. No man is an island. The only wealth we have is the legacy of those who came before us and the only legacy we can leave is to either add to that or destroy it. Some people really don’t think they will die. It’s all rather odd. But then, sensible investors always look to the Bible, the Koran and the Talmud. I had a dream about N.S that he was an English Catholic Priest, a Mossad Agent and an Atheist Jihadi. It was really bizarre, soundtracked by Kraftwerk. Then I woke up and it didn’t go away.

    I wish I’d never started decoding Economics. It’s a right royal pain in the arse but like an damaged tooth, it’s hard not to probe it with your tongue even if you vow to leave it alone until the dentist yanks it out. Can you rip Economics out of your brain? Is there a Recovery Clinic you can go to in the Arizona desert?…..Economics is like Music these days, just numbers. Prince was right, not a good idea putting all that digital detritus in your brain…we need to get back to Analogue Economics, the building-site banter kind of stuff.

    ‘His management’s pre-interview list of guidelines insisted, “Please do not discuss his views on the internet,” but perhaps Prince hasn’t read them. “I personally can’t stand digital music,” he says. “You’re getting sound in bits. It affects a different place in your brain. When you play it back, you can’t feel anything. We’re analogue people, not digital.” He’s warming to his theme. “Ringtones!” he exclaims. “Have you ever been in a room where there’s 17 ringtones going off at once?”

    Does he have a ringtone?

    “No,” he says, looking as offended as if I’d asked him if he drove a clown car. “I don’t have a phone.”

    Enough…i have a suitcase to pack and a plane to catch to a frighteningly exotic city across yonder wide blue sea…

    Salaam. Shalom. Pax Vobiscum.

      Speculation is ok up to a point.
      It only becomes a problem when the speculator starts to believe their own publicity or invincibility if you prefer.
      This is covered by an old Greek (I think) proverb.
      “Whom the Gods would destroy they first make mad”
      Believing in ones own publicity is a very dangerous form of madness.
      The only problem I have with the Gods is that their collateral damage stats are, to say the very least, pretty appalling.
      Perhaps they too need to stop believing their own publicity.
      So that’s Speculators, request for reference to ancient Greece and religion all dealt with in one shortish post.
      I’m impressed with myself – Classic example of believing ones own publicity.

    @ Mike Flannelly,

    Here is very interesting information as to the “minimum rates of pay” & “grants based on per pupil parameter” to Secretaries, Caretakers, & Cleaners employed by Department of Education ;

    One can understand now why the schools canvass avidly for student intake ;
    Even though as political animals that most teachers & all school administrators [ incl. Principals, & Vice-Principals, & Co-ordinators ] are, they will callously reject aborigine Irish of their remit for intake if they on effective blacklist regardless if unmerited & instead seek foreign unknowns [ especially if they fancy them in a sexual way* ].

    MI-5 Used Terror Groups to Assassinate Leaders

    January 4, 2018

    Charles Haughey was Irish Prime Minister “Taoiseach” from 1979-1982 & 1987-1992)

    SUB-HEADING ;
    MI-5 tried to assassinate Irish Prime Minister in 1985

    PREAMBLE ;
    “Everyone with 1/2-a-brain knows that Israel, the US, and Britain have used front groups like Isis and Al Nusra Front to wreak carnage in the Muslim world on behalf of Anglo-Zionist interests, but the same interests have long used western terror groups to get rid of domestic enemies and to furnish a pretext for the surveilled police state. ”

    by Jude Duffy
    (henrymakow.com)

    THE ARTICLE ;
    At Christmas 2017, Irish state papers revealed that in 1985 the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) informed the Irish Prime Minister Charles Haughey, (1925-2006) that MI5 had directed them to assassinate him.

    According to the Protestant terror group – long a paramilitary wing of the British deep state – MI5 gave them comprehensive details of Haughey’s movements, his mode of transport, his home, and even supplied aerial photos of the small island he owned off the south coast of Ireland. The UVF stated in the letter that they turned down MI5′s request on the grounds that they didn’t wish to take part in such “dirty tricks”.

    One can take this letter at face value, or one can speculate as to whether it may have been the British deep state’s way of issuing a thinly veiled threat – via their stooges in the UVF – of the deadly consequences for Haughey of continuing to obstruct their agenda. Either way, it illustrates how globalists happily use terrorism to enforce their will.

    GET HAUGHEY

    In the early 1980s, using the age-old deep state twin techniques of bribery and relentless psychic driving media black propaganda, the Anglo-Masons made serious efforts to remove Haughey from the leadership of the Fianna Fail party. Around this time, Ray McSharry – a loyal senior minister in his government – secretly taped a ministerial colleague, Martin O’Donoghue, informing McSharry that there was “lots of money around” for Fianna Fail TDs (members of parliament) who would agree to support an internal party coup against Haughey. When the bribery gambit backfired, the deep state merchants apparently opted for a more permanent solution to the Haughey problem.

    Indeed the would be UVF plot may have been only one of several efforts to “whack” the Fianna Fail leader. According to his son, Sean, Charles Haughey survived two serious car crashes, one plane crash landing, and the sinking of his yacht.

    Significantly this latter”accident”, in which Haughey’s boat mysteriously capsized on a very calm day off the south coast of Ireland, happened the year after the UVF sent their letter, and only a few weeks after Haughey fiercely condemned the then Irish Taoiseach (Prime Minister), the Rothschild globalist, Garret Fitzgerald, for his attendance at the MI6 aligned Bilderberg gathering.

    Haughey eventually came on board with the neo-liberal anti-nationalist agenda of his enemies – thanks presumably to the bribes he and many other Irish politicians received from global Masonic interests (John Furze, the English born banker at the centre of huge scandal involving large bribes to Irish politicians – including Haughey – was given a full Masonic funeral when he died in 1997).

    However, it’s also eminently possible that Haughey towed the Anglo-Zionist line in later years partly because he had no wish to die prematurely in an “accident” or terrorist hit-job.

    ILLUMINATI SPONSORSHIP OF TERROR GROUPS

    Everyone with half-a-brain knows that Israel, the US, and Britain have used front groups like Isis and Al Nusra Front to wreak carnage in the Muslim world on behalf of Anglo-Zionist interests, but the same interests have long used western terror groups to get rid of domestic enemies and to furnish a pretext for the surveilled police state. The activities of the Red Brigades in Italy, the Baader Meinhof in Germany and both sets of paramilitaries in Northern Ireland illustrate this technique of internal subversion (Both wings of the IRA – the Provisionals and the “Officials” – were heavily infiltrated at the very top by British spooks, as were all the Protestant Masonic loyalist terror groups in Ireland).

    In 1973 the Freemasons assigned to the Basque separatist group ETA the task of murdering Franco’s chosen successor, Admiral Luis Carrero Blanco, left, thus eliminating a crucial rallying figure of resistance to the Masonic socialist Reconquista of Spain when Franco eventually died in 1975.

    In 1986 the Swedish Prime Minister Olaf Palme was shot at point-blank range in front of his wife on a street in central Stockholm. Palme had become increasingly critical of US and Israeli policies and to this day no one has been convicted of his murder.

    Another Swedish politician, the foreign minister, Anna Lindh, was murdered in a Stockholm shopping mall in 2003, days before a crucial referendum in her country on joining the European single currency. A strong supporter of the proposal, many believe she was killed in order to generate a sympathetic backlash in favour of a yes vote.

    In 2002 the hugely popular Dutch anti-immigration politician Pim Fortuyn was shot dead nine days before a general election in which he was set to make a massive breakthrough on behalf of the anti-immigration cause.

    Hader.jpg
    In 2008 the Austrian anti-immigration politician, Jorg Haider, left, died in a car crash just after his party had become a partner in government, a turn of events that provoked the “international community” into threatening Austria with all sorts of dire consequences – up to and including economic boycotts and suspension from the European Union. As with the death of Princess Diana, the Zio-media and the Austrian authorities blamed Haider’s “accident” on drink driving – a claim hotly denied by Haider’s wife and many of his colleagues and supporters.

    In 1981 Pope John Paul II and Ronald Reagan were shot within six weeks of each other. Even many mainstream investigative journalists posit a Mossad role in the shooting of the Pope, while Reagan’s would be assassin, John Hinckley Jr, had close family ties to the U.S. Vice President and former head of the CIA, George H.W. Bush.

    In 1997, John F. Kennedy Jr., the publisher of ‘George’ magazine, incurred widespread establishment wrath for running an article blaming the Israeli internal secret service, Shin Bet, for the murder of Israeli Prime Minister and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Yitzhak Rabin. Kennedy Jr. had also made it clear he did not accept the official version of his father’s death. In 1999 Kennedy Jr. died in a plane crash – many elements of which remain unexplained.

    In 2004 the Palestinian leader, Yasser Arafat died from suspected polonium poisoning; the Israeli deep state does not even seriously attempt to deny its involvement in his death.

    In 1994 the British Labour Party leader John Smith died suddenly after giving a speech at a posh hotel in central London. Since his election as leader in 1992, Smith had rapidly steered the party back to its working-class roots and away from the globalist cosmopolitanism of erstwhile Communist Peter Mandelson – the dominant figure in the entourage of the previous leader Neil Kinnock.

    Mandelson, a Bilderberg ultra-Zionist, complained bitterly of being marginalized by the Smith leadership, but his exile turned out to be shortlived: after Smith’s death, Zionist warmonger Tony Blair took over as nominal leader and his long-time “extremely close friend” “Mandy” Mandelson once again seized the tiller.

    For some intriguing reason, Tony Blair, by his own account, always believed that John Smith would hand in his dinner pail in plenty of time for Blair and Mandy to contest the 1997 British general election as Labour Party nominal leader and controller respectively. Only a month before Smith’s death, Blair told his wife, “If John dies I will be the leader, not Gordon [Brown], and somehow I think this will happen, I really do.”

    How very weird. Smith was only 55 at the time. Weirder still, a mainstream satirical fillm, ‘The Hunt For Tony Blair’, depicted Blair murdering Smith in the hotel toilet on the night Smith gave what turned out to be his final speech. Outlandish satire or ‘revelation of the method’?

    One can formulate a very simple counter-factual narrative regarding modern British political history: no death of John Smith = no Blair-Bush partnership, no Iraq War, no invasion of Afghanistan and no War on Terror.

    robin-cook-4.jpg
    In 2005 the former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook died suddenly while mountain climbing in Scotland. As in so many suspicious events and false flag attacks, official and media accounts of the cause of death varied wildly in the hours after his demise. Initially, corporate media outlets said he had succumbed to external injuries he received from a fall – a story later changed to death by cardiac arrest.

    Cook was the only member of the British government to resign in protest over the Iraq War, and in the weeks and months before his death he had begun to question not just the conduct of the War On Terror, but its whole premise – going so far as to state that ‘Al Qaeda’ was simply another name for a list of CIA assets in the Muslim world.

    By the way, ‘The Hunt For Tony Blair’ blamed Blair for Cook’s murder as well…Cook was 59 at the time of his death.

    On the day of the 2010 British general election, the then UKIP leader, Nigel Farage narrowly escaped death after the light plane he was traveling in crashed. Farage had aroused the anger of the British Zionist establishment, not only by opposing mass immigration and the EU, but also by standing in the election against the Speaker of the House of Commons, the arch-Zionist John Bercow.

    In 2015, Farage once again narrowly escaped death when a wheel suddenly came off his car while he was driving home to England on a French motorway. Farage was forced to dive from his car and frantically scramble over a wall in order to avoid being mowed down by oncoming lorries. Farage said that the French police told him that the wheels of his car had been sabotaged in an effort to kill him – though tellingly he later said he regretted divulging this.

    That in itself raises an intriguing question: Either the French police told Farage the episode was an assassination attempt or they didn’t, and if they did say this, why would he regret publicly recounting what he had been told? Did the Rothschild deep state merchants make Farage feel the heat after he exposed the reality of mafia-style political hit squads, and force him to walk back on his original statement?

    It is worth remembering in this context that by 2015 the Anglo-Zionists had a new reason to loathe Farage: in the wake of the Neocon coup in Ukraine he had refused to join the anti-Putin hysteria of the western political and media establishment

    In 2010, the Polish President, Lech Kaczynski, died in plane crash in Russia, a crash that also killed many senior figures in the Polish military. Although Kaczynski was a fairly strong supporter of Israel, he had aroused the ire of the globalist establishment by taking a strong line against the LGBTQ agenda – going so far as to call the organizers of gay pride events “perverts” – and had also opposed feminism, abortion and the EU anti-nationalist agenda.

    Not all sudden deaths are necessarily suspicious of course – even when they happen to those the globalist establishment hate – but the reverse also applies: not all deaths from long-term illnesses are necessarily innocent. The late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez accused the CIA of giving many Latin American leaders – including himself – cancer, an accusation that only seems far-fetched if you’ve never seen Hillary Clinton cackling ghoulishly over the stomach churningly brutal street murder of Muammar Ghadaffi, or if you never heard senior US politicians – including Clinton herself, Donald Trump, former Presidential candidate, John McCain, and fomer Speaker, Newt Gingrich – openly calling for deep state hit squads to illegally kill elected politicians and state officials in countries deemed to be enemies of the Greater Israel project.

        Because u at best was a 3rd division Hungarian League professional soccer player from Ireland who would be reckoned not pleasant after drinks [ excuses 8-) ] given how unpleasant u chose to be on this blog to a real patriot [ myself ] & some others.
        Heck, it could be that u not pleasant if u a dry too ;
        i.e.
        a dry drunk.

        Another analogy ;
        U are also akin to an interloper in a mathematics class being contraire about the worthiness of Geometry, Trionometry, Calculus ;

        Another analogy ;
        U are also akin to an interloper [ non-alcoholic ; Blimey, I going from ying to yang about u ] at an Alcoholic Annonymous meeting quipping in to troll folks who have walked the walk.

        SO MANY ANALOGIES ONE COULD MAKE ABOUT U

        BUT, THIS NO ANALOGY ;
        U are a nosy bollox too.

        Anyway, dearest Adam, I discern that u really just want interpersonal chat on this blog.
        That is fine in itself.
        But, when folks here who know what they are talking about, & with some folks they are breaching matters that even heavy-weight boxers shy away from because their dictum is “never enter a fight that they not sure of winning, u should show totally humility by reading with correct attitude & reflecting & doing ur own research that confirms & contradicts, & then honing some contribution u wish to deposit such that it is positive before u actually do so post.

        BY THE WAY, ACTUAL IRISH NATIONALIST REPUBLICAN FOLKS THAT I KNOW WILL BE NOT-AMUSED AT UR CHEQUERED COLLABORATION WITH HASBARA-GCHQ MOLE WHO HAS SOUGHT TO OBFUSCATE & “POLICE” OPEN-DISCUSSION ON THE BLOG ASSOCIATED WITH THE APPALLING ADVICE GIVEN TO MINISTER FOR FINANCE FOR HE TO GIVE SOVEREIGN GUARANTEE TO THE BANKS ;

          HOW CONVENIENT FOR U.

          And, u Adam have children ;
          Are u not concerned about the campaign to homosexualise boys by u know who ?
          Have u no self respect ?

          And, u meant to be an Irish man based in the Caribbean ;
          U not uncover whom exactly were the slave traders & slave plantation owners ?
          It sure as hell was not the Irish.
          Indeed, most of the slaves — & dismiss that oxymoron of a term indentured servant in this context — in North America were the Irish.

          And, u Adam who have children ;
          Where is ur social conscience about what is basically both nuts + satanic / evil campaign to legalise abortion / murder of Pre-born Babies & Infant Babies ?

          There is a revolution happening by real men initially & being joined by awoken women against that agenda as promoted by u know who.
          And, interestingly, Canada is to the forefront.

          U not concerned about a society that indoctrinates men to be shoving their penises up each others holes ?
          And, to youth & children too ?
          Because, the “gay” campaigners are constantly seeking to lower the age of being allowed to stick it up the boy child’s ass.

          Caribbean folk sure do not like that stuff Adam.

          So, u would wanna reflect on who u have collaborated with ;
          U know who is a self-admitted Hasbara-GCHQ Mole.
          Do u know what that means as one who is telling the whole world that u admire the Provos ?

          • As for the LBGTQZ agenda, I have a pain in my hole with it (pun intended). I’m fed up with them ramming it down everyone’s throat (pun intended).

            As far as I’m concerned they can go fuck themselves (pun intended).

            This year I’m devoting myself to the ‘straight agenda’ and pontificating on how good it is to be straight – let’s face it, none of us would be here if it wasn’t for men liking women, although these days if you look at someone sideways then it’s apparently some kind of sexual harassment – you would wonder how a man is supposed to meet a woman at all.

            Anyway, I do okay, way better than you do I would imagine Mr bonbon. What a sad life you have.

          • * Z = Zombie.

            Well I mean, every freak on the planet has their ‘rights’ these days, so why shouldn’t zombies have rights too?

          • Reading a book at the moment called ‘The Irish Slaves’ by Rhetta Akamatsu.

            You really have no idea Mr bonbon. If you ever visiting Antigua or Montserrat then you would know that this book is required reading.

            You’re never going to make it to those places though, instead you are going to die cold, hungry and unfulfilled.

          • And poor. Sorry, forgot that one. Most likely destitute.

          • Grzegorz Kolodziej

            In that case, perhaps you would be interested in knowing that until 1992, WHO was classifying homosexuality as a mental disorder.
            And it’s not that anything has changed in science since – ideology changed, and its financing changed. Someone in the Spectator had the guts to write that the same courage that was needed in the 1970s to come out as gay is needed today to come out as anti-gay.
            Whereas I distinguish between gays (political orientation) and homosexuals (sexual orientations) – I’ve nothing against homosexuals (I like Oscar Wilde) as long as they keep it private and don’t adopt kids.
            But
            As Europe is now turning into a Caliphate, our discussion is academic.
            Who will defend those gays know – those who they offended and tormented with court cases millions of times?
            As people who suffer the most from the Zionist extremism are decent Jews, people who will suffer the most from gayism are decent homosexuals.
            P.S. Do you know that there was a group in Ireland Gays Against Gay Marriage? In my opinion, they were not gays, but homosexuals who were NOT mentally ill.

            On the subject of men meeting women a read of Jane Austen ‘Pride and Prejudice’ might be prudent.

            ‘It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a (single) man in possession of a good fortune is in want of a wife’

            ‘It is a truth rarely acknowledged that any man in possession of even a (smallish) good fortune will be be inundated with two bit goldigging whores on the make’.

            On that note get it into a trust fund so that you may continue to possess it and prosper.

        I WAS CORRECT ABOUT Hasbara-GCHQ MOLE ALL ALONG.

        And, foreign embassies in Irish State monitoring this blog avidly — after all that appalling to sovereignize the loans given by private commercial banks in Irish State & which henceforth is decimating the Irish at lower end of the socio-economic-culturo pyramid, is from host of this very blog — KNOW THE VERACITY OF THAT OBSERVATION FROM QUICKLY INTO THEIR EARLIEST ENCOUNTERS.

        SURE, HASBARA-GCHQ JOINED-UP CELL WOULD BE AMISS NOT TO PLACE A MOLE ON THIS BLOG, & THE OTHER POPULAR BLOGS & FORUMS OF IRISH ASSOCIATION.
        IN FACT, THIS PHENOMENON IS WIDELY DECLARED ON e.g. http://www.politics.ie.

        A BLOG & FORUM OF BRITISH ASSOCIATION WOULD BE VERY QUICK ON THE UP-TAKE.
        I VERY DISAPPOINTED IN U Tony FOR NOT REALISING WHAT I HAVE THE FORTHRIGHTNESS TO REVEAL ABOUT THIS.
        AND, ESPECIALLY AFTER THEY ADMITTED THAT THEY A HASBARA-GCHQ MOLE ON THIS BLOG.

            Tony, there is a Mole in this blog.
            They have been active for a long time.
            They are a self-admitted Mole for :
            Hasbara
            &
            GCHQ, Cheltenham

            Many other blogs & forums with Irish State base — e.g. http://www.politics.ie are also infiltrated by such Moles for Hasbara, & GCHQ.
            And, the decent + smart bloggers there know it + DECLARE it often.

            They seek to control & police the discussions on this blog.
            There is to be talk about “who”as an egregore exactly is targeting Ireland ;
            I know it.
            Grzegorz knows it.
            AND, SO DO U.
            The Provisional IRA know it.

            But, some are fooled by what they find as an amusing homosexual with hangups about Ireland even though they never live here.

            THE IRISH ARE EASILY FOOLED BY SUCH.

            “It is much easier to fool a man,

    On 12 April 2017, at the “Building the Infrastructure to Realise FinTech’s Promise” speech given by Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, Mr Carney said:

    “To help distinguish distributed ledger’s potential from its hype, we have completed our own Proof of Concept. We are a member of Hyperledger along with private market participants and tech firms.14 Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort intended to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. It is a global collaboration which includes leaders in finance, banking, IoT, supply chain, manufacturing and technology”.

          Every time I read your comments it strikes me as a work of pure genius but it’s as incomprehensible as latin, feminism or James Joyce to someone living in the 21st century. Is it possible for you to present your work in article, essay or short story format in a modern European language (preferably english) so that ordinary mortals like myself can digest your musings?

          • Truthist

            My posts are most cogent & comprehensible ;
            But, surely ahead of joining this blog u determined to get some handle on the regular posters.
            And, also definitely as Irish person, MH, u are well familiar that we have to resort to careful style even when boldly stating the true pertinent facts.

            I have been breeching the most important, & urgent, relevant facts whenever necessary ;

            Of course, there are much more regular readers who never partake as posters.
            And, it is very few who dare to take me on ;
            Because they know that I tell the vital truth, & they appreciate me for it.

            But, one such did join & then immediately launch aggressively & libel me directly for my assertion that the Garda-Landlords / Landlord-Gardai, as a block [ not in this reference "individually" or "in sub-group" ; But, yes, as block each ] in the main metropolitan areas are on the take from the drug-pushers + drug-dealers in turning a blind eye to this activity.

            I perceived that he had in DMW parlance “skin in the game” [ not that I mean he was selling cigarette wraps for hash joints or worse ], & challenged him as being connected with the G-Ls / L-Gai.
            He denied it.
            Later I learn that he worked in the State Attorney Office in San Diego [ I almost sure it being that California city as I type ad lib ].
            State Attorney Office … ;
            And, a California one no less.
            Hmm m !
            Not the type of office that I would trust.

            OF COURSE, I AM TOTALLY CORRECT ABOUT THE G-Ls / L-Gai [ incl. the Gai / Gay / Homosexual members ] AS IN THE LOOP WITH THE DRUG SYNDICATES.
            However, I still am very hopeful that the Drug Squad are clean.

            ……………………………

            DO U, MH, HAVE SKIN IN THE GAME — & I DO NOT IN ANY WAY MEAN DRUGS — THAT U NOT APPRECIATE THE GREAT SERVICE I DO TO EACH ARTICLE BY RELEVANTLY REFERRING TO :

            ‘Yeah,’, says I, ‘we have many people who talk dis-respectively about Christ. Sorry about that.’

            inter alia

            And, dearest MH, are u not even touch suspicious as to Warren Buffets character & associations ?

            If u trust ur judgement about business investment AND have currency for investment in capital, why do u not start ur own enterprise here in Irish State instead of benefiting the foreigners over yonder ?

    Huge scandal in Germany: West Berlin (then Berlin) Jugendamt has been, from the 1960s, deliberately taking kids from parents and giving it to paedophiles:

    http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/berliner-jugendamt-vermittelte-kinder-an-paedophile-a-1185461.html

    Germany – a morally bankrupt state that mentors the whole Europe about justice and the rule of law

    • Grzegorz Kolodziej

      Having realised that not all readers read German and have Spiegel subscription, I’ll say what the gist of this article: West Berlin’s and Merkel’s united Berlin Jugendamt has been acting as a go-between Berlin’s paedophiles (all of them homosexual) and the children. Many children were adopted by paedophiles on condition that they could be used for sexual purposes; 84 children ended up in German-state organised paedophile
      b r o t h e l. This is not a conspiracy theory – this is the result of the official investigation.
      Reminder: the German Green Party demanded in the 1980s that paedophilia should be legalised.
      Richard Dawkins, the “authority” of the dumb part of atheists’ (not all atheists are dumb), is in favour of “soft” paedophilia – whatever that means.

      • Truthist

        I think this video may be the one that has E. Michael Jones arguing that Dawkins is militant atheist because he has suppressed rage from being sexually abused by an Anglican priest / vicar.
        And, I am hopeful too that this has Jones also giving useful insight into ur frequent addressee Hitchens.

        I always read with great interest your insights regarding Germany. How can a Country so fortunate in location,skills and technological prowess be so politically and economically self destructive and destructive towards most of its neighbours? What’s at the heart of its darkness?

        • Grzegorz Kolodziej

          The heart of its darkness is that being such an important location (Halford Mackinder said that who controls eastern Europe, controls the world) and between two hostile powers (Germany and Russia), as well as having thousands of Red Army “sleepers” left on its territory since 1944 (as well as Stasi’s Operation’s Gruppe Warschau, now BND) in key areas of Polish public life (not least judiciary), the Poles are much less in control of its state than even West Germany was – and every time they try to take control over their own affairs, they have to face not only hostile actions of these two powers plus their propaganda machines but also the EU hostile press (including some media/papers in Ireland and the UK).
          Bear in mind that as long as Poland only had to face one enemy from the east, it dominated the European politics, saving western civilisation on at least one occasion (1683). It wasn’t until the rise of Prussia and its cooperation with Russia that Poland turned from a superpower into a vassal state.
          It’s a little bit as if Ireland had Cromwell on the east, and on the south and west, not friendly France, Spain and the US – but another three Cromwells. Imagine that the US, instead of receiving the Irish post-Famine immigrants with open arms (well, sort of…) – and it was thanks to the Irish US diaspora that Ireland could function as a state post-independence without becoming, say, another Albania, closed its borders in 1845 and not 1/6 of Irish population died, but 1/3 (so like after the Swedish invasion) or 1/4 (like after the Nazi Germany invasion). And then France and Spain would invade Ireland from the south. And convinced the rest of Europe that the Irish started it because they were behaving destructively towards their neighbours.
          There would have never been a Celtic Tiger…

        • Grzegorz Kolodziej

          Germany, as you know, didn’t exist as a state until the 19th century (literary German, btw, developed around a century later than literary Polish). It was a kaleidoscope of over 250 diverse states, with different customs, languages and mentalities. I think the key was a series of Prussian-Russian pacts (Prussia was also supported by Cromwell and his successors) and the defeat of Bavaria. When Bavaria was defeated, nothing could stop the Gleichschaltung – and this was carried out by Prussia, so the whole Germany were shaped on Prussian pattern. Thus the first totalitarian state in Europe was created, with Hegel as an official philosopher, claiming that the history of mankind is a series of development of the Geist who achieves its final stage of development in the State, of which the Prussian state is the perfect exemplification – therefore a true freedom is to understand the necessity of putting the Prussian State’s interest before your and your family interest. With that philosophy, a suitable schooling was chosen whereby children were taken from families and taught to think as a collective. There was only one small step from this to the Third Reich. After WWII, the capital was moved to Bonn and West Germany took an Atlantic direction, gaining its prosperity from there. This civilised the Prussian influence somewhat. When after the reunification the capital was moved to Berlin, it was not only location change – most of the government’s bureaucracy was now East German, with roots in STASI (Merkel’s person responsible for media censorship worked for STASI). Coupled with that was Germany’s U-turn from the Atlantic towards Russia, where Poland was – again, as in the 18th century, the 19th century, WWI and WWII – an obstacle to join Germany with Russia (historically, every time Germany and Russia had a common border, this was followed by bigger and bigger wars).
          The term that is used in Germany to describe the way of media reporting during Merkel is called Hofberichterstattung (which is an old term). Unlike countries like Poland or England, Merkel’s interviews are not only authorised, but are pre-recorded and you see cuts everywhere so that no spontaneous question is asked and Merkel looks stately. Even the President of the Ringier-Axel-Spring media group – a guy who gives instructions to his papers and TV stations in Poland, telling them how exactly should they criticise Jaroslaw Kaczynski and then relay it to the English speaking media – went berserk and started shouting that the freedom of speech in Germany is now as limited in the North Korea, which met with rebuke of the bosses of ARD/ZDF stations (who feel perfectly well in that situation – state-controlled media – and there are no other in Germany – feel now so immune to any investigation that ZDF refused to obey the order of the German court and apologise for their constant using of the name “Polish death camps” (in another documentary, ZDF showed a photo of very thin Polish women and children on a cattle train to Auschwitz and described it as “German expellees from Poland”).

          So the heart of the darkness is Prussia and its return to ruling Germany and Europe.

          • Grzegorz Kolodziej

            Of course, Prussia took this direction from Bismarck because it replaced God with the German State as a God. When I say Prussia, I don’t mean ethnicity-determined culture (Prussians are actually in blood types 50% Poles – even Merkel has some Polish blood – the best example that being a neighbour doesn’t always mean that two country who share common blood and (to an extent) culture, share common interests – something DMW often forgets.
            In fact, these are often the most bitter rivals because they compete for the same space.
            What I mean is a certain type of schooling, upbringing and administration that originated from Prussia and spread all over Germany, and was only mitigated a bit after WWII by Atlanticism.
            This type of uniform culture produces uniform mentalities – look at German TV – debates: all have the same view on everything unless they invite a foreigner. They even talk at the same time the same things, covering each other voices until shouting the loudest wins (the Maybrit Illner show on ZDF).

          • Metropolitan Hillbilly

            That conformity is truly frightening. I never grasped the significance of the relocation from Bonn to Berlin until you outlined it that way. The turn east, astonishing. Two fingers up to the USA after all the effort and sacrifice of the Marshall plan. The EU ‘directives’ are in a similar vein. A slow and invisible smothering of democracy. The British obviously saw the writing on the wall and pulled the plug.

          • Truthist

            Laughable about the Marshall Plan

            The Marshall Plan did not come from the USA taxpayers.

            It came from Germans … with interest.
            But, I expect Grzegorz to inform us that it came from Poland too in some way.
            And, of course, I do not mean that in a smart-Alec way Grzegorz.

            Germany made a great leap over the other nations by allowing / enduring the Brits et al plundering Germany of its machinery after WW2.
            Then Germany devised even better machinery & technology for themselves.

            GERMANY IS AN OCCUPIED COUNTRY.
            Likewise, JAPAN IS AN OCCUPIED COUNTRY.

            The natives, & foreigners resident there, are NOT allowed to speak about certain matters.

            Folks would really want to uncover the number of Germans who died in WW 2 & its aftermath
            incl.
            the millions of German military who were starved to death behind fences whilst their families looked on.

            Ike / Eisenhower “the fag” was some psychopath following his own volition & “merely following orders” coincidentally.
            He shared that egregore.

            Patton was assassinated by USA Deep State so as to put Ike into power.

            Patton would also have become the President.

            Patton had wanted to save Poland from Communism.

            Patton said that USA had fought the wrong Pig

            Patton wanted to build up Germany.

            General Marshall was another scum-bag if I remember correctly from past research.

            Far from being wronged after WWII, West Germany not only was allowed to first monetise its debt, and then have the rest of it written off – on insanely good conditions that the rest will be paid off from parts of German exports and only if West Germany had exports surplus (this is unlike the 1990s Poland, whose 50% IMF debt write-off – a draconian, 20% interest rates write-off as Poland has paid its actual debt – was just a hostile Polish industry takeover plan), but more importantly, the Allies turned a blind eye to West Germany keeping or repatriating all its WWII assets stoles from Germany occupied countries (the key to German post WWII revival).

            West German success was largely based on this, on avoiding paying WWII reparations to all countries bar one, and to stable DM based on the stable dollar. Erhardt’s Wirtschafstwunder was, in fact, a pre-planned operation of transferring Nazi Germany assets back from countries like Switzerland (i.e. Deutsche Bank transferred all gold they robbed in concentration camps).

            “the Brits et al plundering Germany of its machinery after WW2.” – oh poor Germany… so what? Germany lost the war for God’s sake!!!

            The Russians were plundering Poland of its machinery after WW2, but unlike the Russian plundering, Americans, British and French were not capturing West Germans as slave labour to uranium mines, and they didn’t kill 100,000 West Germans after WWII. I’d say that on the list of the MILDEST occupation of all time, the “occupation” of West Germany tops the list – an “occupation” from which West Germany came out many times richer than before it.

            “GERMANY IS AN OCCUPIED COUNTRY.
            Likewise, JAPAN IS AN OCCUPIED COUNTRY.” – I wish Poland was such “occupied” country after WWII like West Germany was, going within 20 years from a country so fallen that in 1945-1948 German women were selling themselves for cigarettes and food in desperation, to Europe’s richest country bar Switzerland and Liechtenstein – a country so stuffed with US money and investment that they had to import 3 million immigrants from Italy and Yugoslavia to do jobs West Germans didn’t want/didn’t have to do.
            Of course, the Marshall Plan was a tool for the US hegemony too, but the Berlin Wall was not built to stop West Germans escaping from the US “plundering” and “occupation”, but to stop the East Germans escaping into this “occupation”.

            Given that we now know for the last few years that Phillip Allen, a guy who was responsible for votes counting in the British EEC accession referendum, worked for BND and for the Abwehr before and that in 1990 the Polish Foreign Minister Skubiszewski was blackmailed by BND not to insist on war reparations and signing the War Treaty (something which surprised Thatcher very much – she was ready to veto the German reunification until Germany does that), it would be more apt to say that Germany occupies Britain and Poland than it is occupied.
            “Occupied” Germany who Chancellor Schroeder worked for Gazprom – gimme a break.

          • Grzegorz Kolodziej

            First of all, the “Other Losses” book that you base your allegations of 1 million starved Germans on has a very questionable methodology and doesn’t quite provide the documents that would in any way substantiate this wild claim. From the documents we have, we read that 1% of German POWs died in American detention camps – the same percentage as American POWs in German detention camps (and bear in mind – these were the only German camps where Germans were adhering to the international agreements they had signed before WWII regarding POWs).

            Secondly, when you say “U ATTENTIVE TO ALL CONTENT OF EACH OF ALL MY POSTS AS INDEED I AM OF URS ?”, then it would appear that this is not reciprocated, because I wrote about the period after 1948, when West Germany ceased to be a fallen state: “from a country so fallen that in 1945-1948 German women were selling themselves for cigarettes and food in desperation, to Europe’s richest country bar Switzerland and Liechtenstein – a country so stuffed with US money and investment that they had to import 3 million immigrants from Italy and Yugoslavia to do jobs West Germans didn’t want/didn’t have to do.”

            In the past, I provided such extensive links and evidence that the Allies turned a blind eye to Adenauer repatriating assets they had stolen from occupied Europe, and that Ludwig Erhardt was Himmler’s operation to restore Germany’s power after the lost war, that your unwillingness (or perhaps not remembering it) to take this into consideration (in contrast, the USSR was plundering all German assets they found in Poland, treating Poland the same as defeated Germany) leads me to the conclusion that this was time and effort wasted – and it wasn’t like these repatriated assets were then shipped to the US – no, they benefited the West Germans, invested in their economy (that at some stage had 0.25% unemployment) and their Hitler-inherited welfare state the Germans were never quite taught to live without, since they started robbing millions of people of their homes and properties in 1939.

            U [ not seemingly ] ignore that I specifically reported they were starved to death.

            Please note — & it very unfair if u hold me to the mischievous standard that the well-heeled Pr..cks of the blog are beholding me such that I simultaneously compose “a telegram of terseness” + “a thesis with extensive references etc” ; Obviously, there is a logical term for that Rumpelstiltskin demand — that I would still be very suspicious of the lot of them for having committed war crimes ;

            “STABLISH CONTACT WITH THE IRISH STATE’S SECRET SERVICE”
            Irish secret service? What Irish secret service? Ireland doesn’t have any secret service to speak of. It only has the Special Detective Unit and Stiúrthóireacht na Faisnéise, and these are without a doubt Europe’s weakest intelligence and counter-intelligence branches of any country bigger than San Marino, who spend money allocated to them mainly on informers, which money is paid into a bank account controlled by the Department of Public Expenditure; the rest of that money they don’t know what to do with, so they return it to the budget year by year.
            Any valuable information they get, they get it from MI5, MI6, CIA, NSA and sometimes Mossad. However, even the information they get, they cannot utilise, and in 2006 US embassy in Dublin cable (codenamed 05DUBLIN1087), the US Ambassador complained to one of the Irish ministers that Ireland is a hub for terrorists and that despite being repeatedly informed about them, it has done nothing about it.
            I estimate the Irish counter-intelligence to have a strength and ability of one Polish pre-WWII girls scouts brigade, and that had Ireland been attacked by the combined might of Germany and Russia, it would fight approximately 3 hours before it would be quietly, peacefully, and completely taken over by its Jihadi 5th columns (to the joy of some people on the top – and I don’t mean the Taoiseach on this occasion).

    I think a health dose of paranoia and caution is prudent regardless of the jurisdiction. I do think it should be balanced with humour and reality and an understanding that the world isn’t usually out to get us. We’re not that important (and I’m certainly not). Is there corruption in State offices? Absolutely and in all jurisdictions to a greater or lesser degree and Ireland is certainly no exception and falls at the higher end of that spectrum in the list of wealthier Countries. The world is full of humans who are fallible. The hope is that time and pressure usually reveals these problems. To answer your question directly no I have no skin in the game if you are referring to corruption, influence peddling, secret organisations, criminal activity or anything of that nature whatsever. Warren Buffett? I wouldn’t support his politics (democrat) but my view is that he is absolutely clean financially. If you do any basic research you’ll find he was instrumental in exposing financial and other wrongdoing at the ‘boystown’ institute in Nebraska. (Something that requires urgent attention in Ireland in relation to the charity and NGO sector). Investing in Ireland? For the little guy there are too many tolls and commission takers skimming off the top. The Citizen is being reduced to a serf in his own land.I hope I’ve been clear and forthright.

        Some people can interpret a comment as being a smart ass when others might conclude that I’m being direct and to the point. It’s a trait I admire in Americans who have a broad cultural distaste for elitism while being the most erudite of people in the English language.It’s a trait I try to replicate. They can tell a story that can be digested and comprehended across the widest of educational levels. I think the ultimate respect for an audience is to attempt(and maybe not succeed) to inform, educate and entertain in the minimum time possible. I’d argue that is the opposite of patronising.

            Because I don’t have the time to trawl through a shotgun blast of semi colons, paragraphs of upper case statements, obscure references to semi historical factoids and conspiracy theory insanity to find the odd gem and genuinely interesting observations. Life is too fucking short. I could care less about typos, we’re adults here not pedantic spelling Nazis.I could care less where Mr. Buffett spends his time or who he spends it with. I’m solely interested in his business insights. This brings us on to gays/homosexuals. Personally I don’t understand why any man would want to spend any time or place his genitalia in another man’s anal tract but it’s a fact that some people do. I don’t claim to understand it but I don’t understand your almost constant referencing of it. I don’t care who consenting adults fuck so long as they don’t fuck my wallet or expect me to subsidize their activities via taxation.

          “I admire in Americans who have a broad cultural distaste for elitism while being the most erudite of people in the English language.” – do you know that having read a giant history of the English language (I think it was something like 2,000 pages!), I’ve learned that in – if my memory serves me correctly – the 18th century the British aristocracy was sending its kids to spend some time in America because they thought that the Americans spoke the best English?
          Btw, the American English of people born pre-mid 19th century sounded completely different. There is one recording:

            I definitely think it’s the most egalitarian form of English (along with Australian English). You just cannot infer social class or position from the accent and what could be a better force for democracy?

            Hmm… dunno. There is something like posh American accent:

            Clinton puts it on sometimes.

            Frasier character speaks posh Mid-Atlantic accent. Personally, I have a mixed Polish-Irish-English-Welsh-American accent that sometimes triggers a reaction among some D4-heads after what begins as a few sentences of a very cordial conversation and it goes like this: squinted eyes and “hmm… you’re not from here, are you?” – this spoken in a tone of someone who hoped to meet an acclaimed author of cooking recipes and met an acclaimed author of anti-semitic pamphlets – interesting, yet… ;-)
            For some reason, I’m better at rendering a perfect NI Irish accent than an accent of a place where I live (perhaps a leftover from my first girlfriend in Ireland, from Derry Bogside). I have two Irish friends with whom we speak in strong NI accents in public places everytime we meet, pretending we did time in jail or are smuggling diesel or words to that effect – this usually stops conversation as these guys also look very dodgy – until they realise it was all make-believe ;-)

            That Frazier/Ivy league accent cuts no ice in the US. If a director wants to convey a rich but evil character the go to accent is Ivy League/Posh British. Think Hannibal Lecter. It’s not an asset. The Ivy league crew get down with the homies as soon as they leave Brown or Harvard. I’ve noticed British public schoolboys also tone down the cut glass unless they’re sure of the company. I think Scandinavians prefer that neutrality/classlessness in the American accent. It’s also easy to understand and be understood in.

    “So by what standard do people such as former UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali declare:

    “If every ethnic, religious or linguistic group claimed statehood, there would be no limit to fragmentation, and peace, security and economic well-being would become ever more difficult to achieve.”

    Indeed there would be no limit to fragmentation, but it does not follow that this would undermine peace and security. If the world held the attitude that consent is required of the governed, the opposite would prove true.”

      I believe the year I first heard of Boutros Boutros Ghali was when the world started going to hell in a handcart. How could any normal human being take someone called Boutros Boutros seriously? It’s like putting the characters from Apres match in charge of the UN. It can only go downhill.

        It all goes back to the monopoly obtained on the issuance of currency and the resulting control and education of the political class by the banker elites. Being forced to use a particular form of money is the first step to slavery. The countries under attack are those still marginally independent of the Rothschild cabal et al. Iran, North Korea, Syria. gone are Iraq and Libya.
        Trump is under attack from all sides as he is liable to withdraw from the debt based system and declare insolvency of the debt. He could reset and void all liabilities and the US refuses to pay all debts. He has done it himself and he could do it again for the people.

      RareAulDub, we would never allow it in Cork.

      The Irish Times restricts how many of its online stories I can access for free each week. I use them to read Fintan O’Toole and wait until David McWilliams publishes his column here.

      I too am surprised at the troll garbage he allows here. Perhaps it is just David’s way of discouraging any real discussion.

      I any case I get to read his IT column for free and I thank him for that.

      • Grzegorz Kolodziej

        “I too am surprised at the troll garbage he allows here.” – are you not surprised at the troll garbage that the Irish Times publishes (i.e. Derek Scally, who twists the facts in almost every article – and the Irish Times never corrects and clarifies them)?

        • corkfirst

          What’s wrong with Derek Scally? I like him.

          I think he understands both Ireland and Germany very well. He is the most interviewed Irish person in Germany. I am glad he is there. I learn a lot about Germany from him.

          What facts do you think he has twisted?

          • Grzegorz Kolodziej

            Not that I think that he has twisted them, I know that he has twisted them. I described this in details here so many times that repeating it again would be boring for me, for you and for everyone else. I’m glad that you learn a lot about Germany from him – although I personally know 2 press correspondents in Germany who are much more knowledgeable about Germany than Mr Scally (i.e. Mr Scally, for all these years, has never appeared on any German language debate on German TV – that fact alone shows that he is the third league correspondent with no access to primary sources). My main problem with Mr Scally’s articles about Germany is that he has never ever mentioned anything about media censorship in Germany, which at the moment is the most draconian in Europe.
            However, it wasn’t his writing on Germany that prompted me to state that he twists facts – it’s his articles on Poland, which he writes often and from Berlin, basically copying the articles on Poland he reads in the German press.

            There are so many facts he gets wrong that naming them all would be, as I said, boring – but I’ll give you 3 that come up to my mind first.

            1. Getting completely wrong the role, the competences and the year when the Constitutional Tribunal was established, why, and by whom. I mean these are not small details – this is as if someone wrote that the members of the Irish Supreme court are nominated by Queen Elizabeth and its competence is to issue death penalties for terrorism.

            2. Writing about censorship on Polish state TV based on quotes he either made up or copied and pasted from the German press (basically, he accused them of deleting some sentences from President Obama’s speech – but these sentences were never in the speech or uttered by President Obama – I even obtained the confirmation thereof from the US Embassy in Warsaw, sent it to The Irish Times and asked them for 3-sentences long correction – they refused).

            3. Writing in his last article on Poland that the PiS government is demanding war reparations from Germany even though 10 years ago, a different Polish Parliament unanimously voted to waive them – in fact, the opposite is true – it unanimously voted in favour of them – so can you be more wrong than this? No, you can’t, and anyone who lies so much in his articles (that wasn’t the only lie even in that one column!) should be immediately sacked. Again, The Irish Times refused to correct it (do they even still have the corrections&clarification page, as all newspapers in the civilised world have? – every Polish newspaper has such space and does it within a week (maximum), and the Irish Independent has such option too, though it rarely uses it) – I see that the last correction I could find in the Irish Times were from 2012, and one from 2014.

            P.S. If you have time, I recommend this talk by a former Irish Times journalist- 45 minutes long but worth it:

          • corkfirst

            The three facts you quote are all about Poland. Why do you think any Cork man would be even remotely interested?

            As for John Waters, I am glad he is no longer with the Irish Times. Next time I want to hear about how wonderful the Catholic Church is I will listen to or read him. Is that why you like him?

          • Grzegorz Kolodziej

            “Why do you think any Cork man would be even remotely interested?” – yes, he writes about Poland very often. You yourself have just stated that he writes articles that are not even remotely interesting. So he constantly gets things wrong and he cannot write even remotely interesting articles. Would that not be a good reason to sack him and replace him with someone competent?
            Btw – I know people from Cork who are very interested in Poland, so I’m not sure why you are so sure.

            “Next time I want to hear about how wonderful the Catholic Church is I will listen to or read him. Is that why you like him?” – actually, for the last 2 years, I’ve been very critical of the Catholic Church – including this week – in case you didn’t notice.

            Do you like Derek Scally because he writes how wonderful, progressive and democratic Germany is, and he never writes about censorship in their media? In that case, why not just reading Hitler instead? He was even more uncritical of Germans than Mr Scally, and he was a better writer too.

            My favourite contemporary Irish poet, Patrick Galvin, was born in Cork’s inner city. His poetry is unlike anything else written by any other poet in Ireland, and in its tone, it very much reminds me of the great Polish metaphysical poetry of Milosz and Herbert (the latter had a huge influence on Seamus Heaney):

            “And if I die now
            Don’t touch me.
            I want to sail in a long boat
            From here to Roche’s Point
            And there I will anoint

            “it seems that Ignatius & Francis Xavier may have been sincere.
            After all, the Catholic Church did recover with help from these 2 … I t-h-i-n-k.”

            How did the Catholic Church recover with help from these 2, if its oldest daughter – France – plunged into the terror of the French Revolution (which killed more people within a few years than Inquisition within a few centuries), and this Catholic-Jesuit France allied with Turkey and refused the send its army to falling Austria save Europe from Islam (Poland had to do it)? Interestingly, the confessor of the French King was a Jesuit.

            “A very sincere Br. springs to mind too.
            Interestingly, the Jesuits are not associated with being RATS in the history of Ireland.”

            Because Ireland was directly ruled by Britain, so the Jesuits had not many arenas (some freemasonries were in conflict with each other). Afterwards, the Jesuits were not that popular in the Church (perhaps due to their dealings with the Nazis: Hitler called Himmler “my Loyola”). When let into Poland, they initially looked like a beneficial force – establishing a massive network of schools and colleges (in which they promised to shape noblemen kids the way wanted them to be: so if a nobleman wanted his child to be a fighter, they shaped him into a fighter; if he wanted him to be shy, they shaped him into being shy; if he wanted him to be a Freemason, they shaped him to be a freemason).

            Jesuits mocked the Bible and called it “a paper Poper” (as opposed to the Black Pope – THEIR Pope).

            A Jesuit conversion oath:
            “We confess that whatever new thing the Pope of Rome may have instituted, whether it be in scripture OR OUT OF SCRIPTURE, is true, divine and full of salvation and therefore it ought to be regarded as of higher value by lay people THAN EVEN THE PRECEPTS OF THE LIVING GOD. We confess that the Pope has power of ALTERING SCRIPTURE, or increasing or diminishing it according to his will. We confess that the Most Holy Pontiff ought to be honoured by all with divine honour with more PROSTRATION than even what is due to Christ himself”.

            Eventually, the Jesuits in Poland turned out to be traitors – under the pretence of defending Polish freedoms, that were known and envied all over Europe and inspired the founding fathers of the US, they turned out to be a 5th column of the Russian tsarina.

            From the old Jesuits oath:

            “My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler… Among the Reformers to be a Reformer, among the Calvinists to be a Calvinists, among the Protestants to be a Protestant and obtaining their confidence to preach even from their pulpits. You have been taught your duty as a spy”.

            “Who are the villians?
            Rothschilds Family”

            Rothschilds came to Germany w i t h the Jesuits. After their expulsion from nearly every state in Europe (80% of them Catholic, and condemnation of Jesuits by 11 Popes), Frederick the Great of Prussia (Freemason) was the only monarch who showed a disposition to afford them protection. He retained Jesuits as teachers in Silesia, Warmia, and the Netze District after their suppression by Pope Clement XIV. With the arrival of the Jesuits, the Rothschilds of Frankfurt have arrived, and eventually attained the status of court bankers in Hesse-Kassel in 1795 after Frederick’s passing.

            I read your Henry Makow’s link on Jesuits, but the ethnic origin is really a secondary to the content of Jesuit teachings (besides, how do you deal with the fact that the Bible – the Old as well as the New Testament – prophecies that at the end of times, Israel will convert?).

            “Capital letters have a role.” – if you use them for single words or one-two sentences like I do. When you write the whole comments in them, is distracting, and achieves the opposite effect to the intended (it makes people skip them). It’s like someone was saying fuck/fuck/fuck all the time ;-).
            If you say fuck all the time, it doesn’t mean anything, and it is hard to listen.

            Samuel Becket — & I only read 20 or so pages from Malone or such of that triology — I consider a genius.
            But, Camilia Paglia has him as her pet hate & chief villian from The Frankfurt School.
            However, I suspect Becket may have been darkly evil.
            I recall some mention of him with occult.
            And, Peter O’Toole — nobody’s Fool — invited Becket out for pub ramble on foot of Becket acceding to O’Toole’s wishes that he be personally involved in O’Toole’s long wish to direct Waiting for Godot ;
            Becket was strange & hostile company for O’Toole.
            Perhaps Becket also knew Parsons of ur mention.
            Parsons linked with Castles & old mansions in Ireland where pedophilia was conducted before & after his visits.
            That angle then ventures into NEOI Conflict & Kincora & Savile [ I hope to get personal definitive confirmation about Savile ].

            But, an arrogant one ; Or so it seems.
            But, he not comfortable in himself ; Burnt out long time ago.
            But, his charisma is the makings of Ryan Air.

            Knowing foreigner also asserts that Poles are not nice people.
            But, he along with me liked a Polish male acquaintance for his total kindly & humble but generous intellectual ability for Philosophy.
            He studying for PhD I think.
            Knowing foreigner said that the Pole was truly nice & impressive person & streets more agreeable than all the other foreigners from ever so many occidental countries of that location.
            So, this is what u are up against ;
            There is agreed hostility against Poles as being NICE etc..
            Of course, this problem involves the subjectivity of the viewer.
            Yee Poles must reflect on that bias against yee.
            And, I think that Poles are aware of it & react nervously in the presence of western foreigners.
            But, showing of Polish Pride would be a folly ; And, worse, … a Sin !

(See: https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/12/29/eric-zuesse-explains-americas-worst-enemy/ ) Except for some former Soviet satellites in Eastern Europe, European governments have defied the will of the people by admitting vast numbers of refugees from Washington’s wars and others pretending to be refugees. The European governments further imperil their citizens with their support for Washington’s rising aggression toward Russia. The universal failure of democratic politics is leading directly to war.

          ‘European Governments have openly defied the will of their peoples by admitting vast numbers of refugees’.

          That frames the question in a specific way.
          1.Refugees or illegal aliens?
          2.European Governments or unelected European and local elites?
          3. Admitting or allowing an invasion?

          I write the above in the context of two recent incidents in Ireland. The murder of a Japanese man going about his lawful business and contributing to society by an individual who apparently had no lawful authority to be in the Country. A reported race riot in the North Dublin commuter town of Balbriggan involving some 250+ individuals. Both incidents are receiving scant mainstream media coverage.
          In a war the news is censored/suppressed to prevent public alarm. Is Ireland at war?

          • It matters little what they are called. If they are illegal entrants they have no rights where they are. somebody walks into my house and takes my space I have the right to eject them. forceably if they do not go quietly. It is the same for a sovereign state.

            A country has the right to admit or reject whoever they wish for whatever reason they dream up. It is their choice.

            Europe and North America are being invaded.

            my citizenship is worthless if they are successful. We are back to centuries ago where people went where ever they felt they wished to.

            In many places the invaders are setting up homesteads and telling those who used to be the local residents that they can scarper if they do not like it. They are called “no go” areas. Dare to mention this and be prepared to be branded as a racist. It is a part of the master plan to destroy the existing (barely existing) culture.

    Given the numbers of Catholics in the world, why did all western media silence Pope Benedict XVI recent letter to card Müller (the second most important person in the Catholic Church after the Pope – as former head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, sacked by the Anti-Pope Francis for his remark that Francis’s – the first Jesuit pope in history – that his “teachings” contravene the Bible ?). What were they afraid of? Perhaps they were afraid of these words of Pope Benedict XVI:

    “SINCE THE SENSATION THAT THE CHURCH IS OVERLOADED WITH A BURDEN OF INCOMPREHENSIBLE THINGS, [...], IS THE MAIN OBSTACLE IN SAYING ‘YES’ TO THE GOD WHO IN JESUS CHRIST IS SPEAKING TO US.”

        “That response by the aborigine Irish [ & foreigners ? ] is unprecedented.” – yes, it’s unprecedented: common sense finally switched itself on. The only thing I didn’t like about the response is that this being directed at Gardai, those people expect that the state will defend. The state will not defend them, and especially the Irish state that 9 out of 10 of Irish people would tell you that it should have no proper army and police – what they should demand instead is the right to bear arms, and organise themselves into lobbies trying to force the government to amend the legislation. So that’d be the next step of maturity, but this first step is positive. Bet you that many of those who are protesting now were supporting Michael D.Higgins’ politics of rolling the red carpet for the so-called “refugees” – who, as they can all see, are all very grateful indeed. The solution for the having Europe’s dumbest (and ugliest) president is to put 10 so-called “refugees” in his own cavernous home – Sabina will make him change his views on that in no time.

          Last best President whom we had was Cearbhall Ó Dálaigh President of Ireland ;
          At least in so far as he stood up for a principle of justice against the “jack-boots” Fine GAY-L.

          Ref.
          Mshd / Wikipedia

          President of Ireland

          Ó Dálaigh’s tenure as president proved to be contentious. While popular with Irish language speakers and artists and respected by many Republicans, he had a strained relationship with the Coalition Government and many English language enthusiasts, particularly Conor Cruise O’Brien and with Liam Cosgrave.

          His decision in 1976 to exercise his power to refer a bill to the Supreme Court to test its constitutionality brought him into conflict with the Fine Gael-Labour National Coalition. Following the assassination of the British Ambassador to Ireland, Christopher Ewart-Biggs, by the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) on 23 July 1976 the government announced its intention to declare a state of emergency.[citation needed] Ó Dálaigh referred the resulting bill, the Emergency Powers Bill,[12] to the Supreme Court. When the court ruled that the bill was constitutional he signed the bill into law on 16 October 1976.[13] The same day an IRA bomb in Mountmellick killed Michael Clerkin, a member of the Garda Síochána, the country’s police force.[14] Ó Dálaigh’s actions were seen by government ministers to have contributed to the killing of this Garda. The following day Minister for Defence Paddy Donegan, on a visit to a barracks in Mullingar to open a canteen, attacked the President for sending the bill to the Supreme Court, calling him a “thundering disgrace”[15] (although it has since been speculated that he used a more vulgar expression).[16] Ó Dálaigh’s private papers show that he considered the relationship between the President (as Commander-in-Chief of the Defence Forces) and the Minister for Defence had been “irrevocably broken” by the comments of the Minister in front of the army Chief of Staff and other high-ranking officers.[17] Donegan offered his resignation but Taoiseach Liam Cosgrave refused to accept it. This proved the last straw for Ó Dálaigh, who believed that Cosgrave had additionally failed to meet his constitutional obligation to regularly brief the President.[17] He resigned on 22 October 1976, “to protect the dignity and independence of the presidency as an institution”.[13] He was succeeded by Patrick Hillery.

            Basic expenses & fair moderate pension if he enters pensionable age upon leaving the post AND has no other social welfare income should be all he gets.
            The post should be essentially voluntary with reasonable expenses but NO salary.

            “The post should be essentially voluntary with reasonable expenses but NO salary.” – Donald Trump resigned from his salary as President: a man who becomes President should do it for his country, not for money – and be smart enough to earn the money to finance his campaign like it used to be in the US at the beginning.
            In pre-WWII Poland (but, of course, not in Poland of today) people who headed small towns councils were doing this for free as an honorary function because they already had incomes from respectable jobs/investments – and this is the case in many small towns in the US (of course, not in the lefty parts of the US).

      That puts the Jesuits in control of the central bankers!!

      In as much as the RCatholics pretend that Peter was the first Pope I have taken the RCC to be a purely political organization. The RCC did not exist as far as I can make out, until the 3rd century AD or even the 4th.

      Christianity was not safe in Rome until 313 and was declared the state religion by Constantine. He was serving in the military in Briton and stationed in Eboracum, (York). His mother was Helena , alleged to be a British Celt, by some. He took a largely British army and seized power in Rome ans later moving the central authority to Bysantium renaming it constantinoble. Incidentally he minted the gold solidus coin to control inflation which lasted for a 1000 years as “real Money”.

            My reply to u does not merit such a cowardly & petulant response.

            Yes, I read that link only after I sent u that reply.
            I sent u that reply because I long familiar with the groundless overall accusations against the Jesuits as being the dominant or even a major player in the diabolical conspiracy of the World Order.
            And, I even more surprised & disappointed in what is ur current intelligence & character to give what was essentially credence to it ;

            But, had u acknowledged that Jesuits just as likely to be infiltrated on-&-off & particularly now with the traditional enemies, direct & indirect, of Christ I would have associate that to be more in ur better line of thinking that u surely had at least before u went to Canada.
            Tony, please do not forget where ur roots hail from.

            Sure, I disappointed with Grzegorz too ;
            But, at least I more sure of a agree-to-disagree response by him, & no petulance.
            And, he will witness that in the now which matters most I support him in saying that the Catholic Church is infiltrated with fakes & evil doers.
            Although, we both more on Coldblow’s opinion that the media is unfairly targeting the Catholic Church.
            However, I would beg to differ with Coldblow in that I assert that the Catholic Church is presently very very corrupt AND for a number of reasons but mainly because there has been successful conspiracy by the traditional enemies of Christ, & the Catholic Church, to flood it with degenerates, & all this proven by good sense & investigation revealing testimony & written evidence AND that the media should instead frame the corruption in that context BUT nonetheless help the government authorities to fully investigate accusations of criminality against it AND actually reform the Catholic Church from head-to-toe ;
            incl.
            the Mass
            Confession ; I suggest that Confession be eliminated because it is subject to abuse by Clergy, & Governments inter alia, upon the Confessor.
            The Catholic Church should regularly strongly caution its laity to not engage with Psychologists etc.
            And, for the same reasons, & more.

    • Truthist

      Grzegorz,

      U know that I am very open-minded before I start to try understanding a position.
      Upon understanding, I have formed an opinion.

      The position & supporting arguments of that link is disinformation & mischievous propaganda essentially against Catholicism.
      I come from an old country.
      And, do not forget what Henry Ford said about the Irish man.
      “The Irish man is the equeal for … the Eskimo.” 8-)

      There are even dreadful anomalies that the mischievous propagandist[s] should attend to if only to save face for future Hasbara projects.

      e.g.

      Booth was a Frmsn & relation to Lincoln
      In fact, there is strong evidence to believe that Lincoln’s assassination was fake, so as to allow Lincoln evade real retribution for having unnecessarily caused war upon the Southern states.

      JFK was not assassinated on behest of the Jesuits ;
      Rather, he was assassinated on behest of the Eskimos 8-) because JFK insisted that the leaders of the Eskimos dismantle their secret sub-ice plateau nuclear facility & allow the USA to retrieve all the nuclear weapons that they had manufactured.

      I still open-minded about the allegation stating :

      2_1
      JFK ordered Silver backed typical paper backed currency be issued by USA Treasury

      the contrary allegation that JFK ordered that USA Treasury not do this ; Martin Armstrong [ Leading Economist ] provides evidence for this
      Anyway, the theory associated with allegation 2_2 is that the Eskimos 8-) aggrieved about implications of this for Private Central Bank of USA, known as Federal Bank of America, with monopoly of power to issue Fiat currency from “thin air” upon receiving bond redeemable with interest from the Government, & further monopoly of power to grant licenses to Private Commercial Banks to create currency from “thin air” with Fractional Reserves, & now the situation of Zero Reserves, prompted them to delegate a hit job on JFK to Permindex.

      Pope Paul III sanctioned the Society of Jesus, the Office of Inquisition was revived and the Pope gave free reign to the Jesuits to run this office, and the inquisitor Generals were granted exceptional powers in carrying out their mandate to root out of all “heretics.”

      This caused the martyrdom of millions of saints.

      ABSOLUTE Bull Shit

      AND, IT COMPOSED WITH SPECIAL ROGUERY SUCH THAT IN RACING TO READ IT U INCLINED TO INSTINCTIVELY TAKE IT ON BOARD AS TRUE ;

      SPANISH INQUISITION IS THE INQUISITION THAT THE AUTHORS KNOW, FOR SURE, THE READER WILL UNDERSTAND TO BE WHAT THEY ARE REFERING TO ;
      AND, THE DEATHS FROM SPANISH INQUISITION WERE TINY IN NUMBER

      Ref.
      Intellectual Snob Arsehole CLDBLW ;
      I hope he keeping well though

      The quotes below show the effect of Jesuits taking over the Office of the Inquisition:

      “Need I speak to you of the thirty years’ war in Germany, which was mainly instigated by the Jesuits, in order to deprive the Protestants of the right of free religious worship, secured to them by the treaty of Augsburg?

      Or of the Irish rebellion,

      HOLD IT RIGHT THERE ; WTF DOES THAT CLAUSE MEAN ?

      of the inhuman butchery of about fifteen millions of Indians in South America, Mexico and Cuba, by the Spanish papists ?

      ATROCITIES ON THE NATIVES OF CARIBBEAN & CENTRAL AMERICA & SOUTH AMERICA WERE COMMITTED BY CRYPTO-ESKIMOS 8-)

      IN FACT, THE JESUITS AT VARIOUS TIMES WERE VERY BENEFICIAL TO THE NATIVES.

      In short, it is calculated by authentic historians, that papal Rome has shed the blood of sixty-eight millions of the human race in order to establish her unfounded claims to religious dominion.”

      • Grzegorz Kolodziej

        “Sure, I disappointed with Grzegorz too”
        “the Jesuits as being the dominant or even a major player in the diabolical conspiracy of the World Order” – I don’t think that they are a dominant player in the NWO, but if someone says that today, Jesuits are not part of the NWO, then he is completely ignorant of all that the Pope says and does – because
        a) Pope IS a Jesuit
        b) Unlike Pope Benedict XVI, the Jesuits had NOT distanced themselves from him
        Ergo
        Jesuits ARE “a major player in the diabolical conspiracy of the World Order” (being a Pope is being a major player).

        “Pope Paul III sanctioned the Society of Jesus, the Office of Inquisition was revived and the Pope gave free reign to the Jesuits to run this office” – true: have you never heard of “Formula of the Institute”? No, you didn’t – I recommend more reading and less emotions.

        Furthermore, the Jesuits were responsible for the implementation of the Second Vatican Council.

        “THE DEATHS FROM SPANISH INQUISITION WERE TINY IN NUMBER” – yes. Spanish Inquisition is not particularly a thing I would hold against Jesuits – I hold against them their diabolism.

        Further elaborating in completely unnecessary and distracting capital letters on link’s inaccuracies re: South America, you are escaping from the main accusation against the Jesuits which is true:
        “Pope Clement XIV abolished the Jesuits as a society in 1773″
        “Between 1555 and 1931 the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Jesuit Order] was expelled from at least 83 countries, city states and cities, for engaging in political intrigue and subversion plots against the welfare of the State, according to the records of a Jesuit priest of repute [i.e., Thomas J. Campbell]. Practically every instance of expulsion was for political intrigue, political infiltration, political subversion, and inciting to political insurrection.”
        - FOR A REASON: them mocking the Christ (their General wrote that his words are more important than the words of Christ and that he can change them if he wishes – and it’s what they have been DOING now when they have their Pope).

          “They intermarried with the nobility and rose to the highest ranks in government and the Church. The founder of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola , was a converso, and so was his successor Diego Lainex. Most conversos practiced Judaism in secret and were considered “Judaizers.”"

  35. “”It may be said that by the end of the 1st century there existed a tradition that Peter had lived in Rome. Further early evidence for the tradition is found in the Letter to the Romans by St. Ignatius, the early 2nd-century bishop of Antioch. It is probable that the tradition of a 25-year episcopate of Peter in Rome is not earlier than the beginning or the middle of the 3rd century. The claims that the church of Rome was founded by Peter or that he served as its first bishop are in dispute and rest on evidence that is not earlier than the middle or late 2nd century.”"

    https://www.britannica.com/biography/Saint-Peter-the-Apostle

    There is little evidence that there was a Christian Church in the form deliniated by the RCC in Rome in the first century although there were undoubtedly Followers of Christ who had moved there or who had converted while resident there, with leaders. And there wad the Home of Caraticus and his family.

    Until proven otherwise I believe there was no structure of Roman Catholocism until after the declaration of Constantinople which puts it after 313 AD.

    It is part of the corruption of the RCC that they claim That the early so called bishops of the church in Rome were A Pope. what cannot be proven true as a fact. St Peter was not a Pope and would not have wanted to be.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Linus
    The Linas I see mentioned as the (2nd)3rd Bishop of Rome was possibly the grandson of Caratacus the British chieftain, Pendragon, who died in Rome about 54 AD. Caratacus is credited with taking Christianity to Rome as part of his family are believed to have converted from the teachings of the followers of Joseph of Aramathea who arrived in Britain about Ad 37. some writers have suggested that St Paul was related through his mother. Suggestions are that many of the names greeted at the the beginning of Pauls letter to the Romans were similar to the names of the family of (Caradoc) Cataticus. Thus Paul was writing to some of his relatives in the safe haven of the British Palace where Caraticus was under house arrest after his reprieve from execution.

    • Truthist

      Interesting, & plausible.

    • declaration of Constantinople== Constantine.

    • Another tradition, which has remained popular among British Israelites and others, makes Caratacus already a Christian before he came to Rome, Christianity having been brought to Britain by either Joseph of Arimathea or St. Paul, and identifies a number of early Christians as his relatives.[22]

      One is Pomponia Graecina, wife of Aulus Plautius, the conqueror of Britain, who as Tacitus relates, was accused of following a “foreign superstition”, which the tradition considers to be Christianity.[23] Tacitus describes her as the “wife of the Plautius who returned from Britain with an ovation”, which led John Lingard (1771–1851) to conclude, in his History and Antiquities of the Anglo-Saxon Church, that she was British;[24] however, this conclusion is a misinterpretation of what Tacitus wrote. An ovation was a military parade in honour of a victorious general, so the person who “returned from Britain with an ovation” is clearly Plautius, not Pomponia. This has not prevented the error being repeated and disseminated widely.

      Another is Claudia Rufina, a historical British woman known to the poet Martial.[25] Martial describes Claudia’s marriage to a man named Pudens,[26] almost certainly Aulus Pudens, an Umbrian centurion and friend of the poet who appears regularly in his Epigrams. It has been argued since the 17th century[27] that this pair may be the same as the Claudia and Pudens mentioned as members of the Roman Christian community in 2 Timothy in the New Testament.[28] Some go further, claiming that Claudia was Caratacus’ daughter, and that the historical Pope Linus, who is described as the “brother of Claudia” in an early church document, was Caratacus’ son. Pudens is identified with St. Pudens, and it is claimed that the basilica of Santa Pudenziana in Rome, and with which St. Pudens is associated, was once called the Palatium Britannicum and was the home of Caratacus and his family.

      “”This theory was popularised in a 1961 book called The Drama of the Lost Disciples by George Jowett, but Jowett did not originate it. He cites renaissance historians such as Archbishop James Ussher, Caesar Baronius and John Hardyng, as well as classical writers like Caesar, Tacitus and Juvenal, although his classical citations at least are wildly inaccurate, many of his assertions are unsourced, and many of his identifications entirely speculative. He also regularly cites St. Paul in Britain, an 1860 book by R. W. Morgan, and advocates other tenets of British Israelism, in particular that the British are descended from the lost tribes of Israel.[29]“”

          Seems that it is always different and always the same. It seems to me David was warning that the lemmings joining the crowd will be getting to the top of the slope and then like Wiley Coyote find themself over the cliff top but not falling until they look down. Every bubble results in the same behaviour.
          The difference is timing as this (these) bubbles have lengthened the time span to something not seen before.
          This time the type of event is not different but the extent and length of the bubble is breaking records.

          Central banks have produced unprecedented amounts of money elevating the bubbles financial to record extents while every sane commentator has been warning about this for 5-10 years already. The warnings have come to naught as the bubbles continue. That is different. Now nobody believes that the system has not reached a new normal, the market always go up.. But there is little euphoria to indicate the blow off top. YET.
          Meanwhile the sane options have been depressed by the same bankers and destroyed as a safe haven from the madness. Gold and silver as the ultimate in money safety and the protector against inflation are disparaged daily to the point that most westerners ignore this and go to the financial bubbles instead.
          But what is not different and what has not changed is the ultimate results. The bubbles will burst and hard assets will be the only things left and real money will be claiming the final seat in the pass the parcel financial game.
          To repeat. Markets can remain irrational longer than most people can remain solvent.
          The other thing that is different is the quality of the government reports. Unemployment levels are a lie. Inflation levels are a lie. Wage growth is a lie. Gross domestic product is reported in currency units rather than amount of goods moved. Our unit of accounting, the currency , is distorted by money production and inflation. When the accounted for economy expands at 3% and inflation is recorded at 2% it is suggested there is growth of 1%. However if the real inflation rate is 6% or more then the growth is really -3%. and that is the truth. There lies the truth. There is actually economic contraction not expansion. That is why people feel the pinch and why they borrow to maintain a lifestyle they cannot afford. That is why central banks have not increased interest rates as if they do they know they will crash the economy. The central bankers are painted into a corner. There is no way out without walking on the floor so carefully painted.

            Gold has no intrinsic value, humans have at some time in the past simply reached a consensus that it’s a valuable means of exchange in the absence of a better one and one that is resistant to dilution/inflation/corruption. But it’s not immune(just like bitcoin) because its value was created by man and any technology created by man will eventually be broken or corrupted by man, just as gold was debased by corrupt monarchs.
            I don’t know what the answer is I think we just have to keep searching.

          • Gold is not debased. The coins were/are. They are debased with alloys or clipping or filing.
            Keeping searching for a better money is commendable. One result is crypto currency. Let me know if you discover a money better than gold. Gold does not decay and it cannot disappear like digital or paper currency. There is no other money can say that.

            It is a bit like food. Many foods are convenient, easy to story and in convenient packages. There are many varieties of food competing BUT in the end to be healthy one needs to eat organic food. Food grown from good soil, uncontaminated by chemicals, separated from weeds and eaten fresh with its wholesome goodness just as we did thousands of years ago.

      I don’t think that the photo in point 1 shows a 30-year-old girl (rather 65), so such vulgar manipulation kinda disqualifies his blog as biased.
      Having said that, I would agree with most of his points (and add that all that he says applies to Russian girls even more), except for points 5, 9, and 10 (regarding 9 and 10, I wonder if he’s ever been to any western country) – nowhere in the white world people (so that includes girls) have less personality and individuality than in the west in general, and British Isles/ the Iberian Peninsula in particular – the secularised, credit-card-based western society produced robots – you go to a restaurant or a bus, and you hear copy-cat boring conversations about the same thing: drink, eat, special-offers, holidays, eat, hairdresser, drink, special-offers, eat, drink, eat, eat, eat, eat. And constant yapping, yapping, yapping.
      Point 6 (“They are not feminine if they have a career”) applies to most women everywhere and it has a psychological explanation.
      I could also add that many of those girls would end up in the West working as prostitutes, after being promised jobs as waitresses (then their passports are taken). The vast majority of Dublin prostitutes are 1) Spanish and b) Ukrainian/Russian.
      But
      Who runs those places, who brings them to Ireland under a false promise of decent jobs? Irish men do…

        I read some of the comments below that link. They all seem to be men with enormous psychological problems (“Yes, I have used prostitutes. About 300 times.” – how about finding someone with enough dignity not to sell her body who actually loves you? – G.K.).
        “60 year old successful men (think oligarchs) who have 1-2 sugar babes are perfectly normal” – for men who never succeeded in unpaid sex, perhaps.

        However, one comments confirms what I said about the Iberian Peninsula:

        “Spain as a model for women is a fucking joke. I lived there for a long time and women there suck…even more than American women in some respects. The women there are very cliquish, loads of cock blockers, never alone, VERY LOUD AND AGGRESSIVE”

          The idiots reading this cannot fathom the reality that there is NO SUCCESS when its comes to CUNTS. Minimize cost for foreign pussy ride? Sure. Casual chick to fuck when in town? Possible. Happy, beautiful, enduring wife who actually loves you no matter what? IMPOSSIBLE. The Ukraine is a victim-state.. literally. The entire UKR nation, and all of Russia for that matter, are utter PRISON WARDS with all the mentality and savagery that goes with it. You cannot redeem, befriend, or ally with former Soviet Bloc slaves. You WILL get burned. === And do not forget plenty of the Ruskie world reads and speaks some English… they study crap articles like this and morph their game faster than you can identify it. If you cannot get laid in Pittsburgh you will NOT succeed in a Reformatory like the Ukraine.

        I presume that these women are rotated in a circuit around Ireland, & Europe too, by way to the punters that they are newbies to the profession.

        Eskimo Mafia bring them in Grzegorz ;
        They have established networks in NEOI [ 1_MI5 + 2_MI6 + 3_GCHQ + 4_Unionists-Loyalists + 5_Criminals-with-Nationalist-Republican-Tendencies" ( crucial distinction ) 8-) + 6_Eskimos 8-) there ] & Irish State [ 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, & bent [ not necessarily homosexual 8-) G-Ls/L-Gai ].
        International Multi-racial criminals based in Irish State — even though they may be employees or directors or self-employed — are connected to these networks.
        Sneering Hub should be placed HQ.

        This scenario rampant in Ukraine, whose government is 80 % dominated by those who are but 2 % of the country’s actual population, is going to come fast to every town in Ireland because of the Heroin & other hard drugs epidemic ;

      I about to read the following Link ;
      Meanwhile, I did scroll down to get an idea of its format ;
      Whereupon I spotted Cyber-Currency ;
      Bitcoin ?
      Nay.
      Rather, 4 letters permutated titillatingly before “coin”,
      vis.
      “Lite”

      So, …
      4 Titillating Letters ; Bitcoin ? Nay ; This time it’s different

      For the month of January, we are running a promotion where we will pay you in Litecoin cryptocurrency for any article of yours that we publish.
      If you have something to say to your fellow man, now is a great time to do it.

    Hi All,

    There is no one sadder than me to see suds pass away. I really hoped the gluttonous fuck would live to 100 to see the globalization driven evisceration of European culture being rolled back by events like Brexit and realize how his signature life’s work would collapse into ashes;

    I would love if someone with a backbone had gotten the opportunity to ask him pointed questions as to why anyone one of us should take a lecture from a wanker who chaired a bank where they had to pay a 5bn fine for shafting their own customer’s;

    They say you should never speak ill of the dead but is telling the truth speaking ill? We’ll hear lots about his ‘humanitarian’ efforts but I can only reflect these efforts didn’t debase his 1/4 billion personal wealth or result in the tidal wave of humanity washing up on the doorstep of his villa in Switzerland or his London townhouse. I don’t see the actions of an Andrew Carnegie building a society by helping its poorest. I see the actions of a man hell bent on ensuring that the poorest will fight each other for scraps. The consequences of his actions have adversely impacted ordinary Citizens struggling to keep a roof over their heads or competing for social housing and education against a tidal wave from the 3rd world who have no legitimate claim to a place in Western societies. He has a family and nobody would deny them the privacy to mourn in peace but his actions have resulted in many Europeans mourning the destruction of their own families and societies. There is no evidence to suggest that this is a case of creative destruction.

      I couldn’t agree with you more. The man was an abomination pure manifest evil. No question about it. Furthermore, society is much the better for his passing.

    “”On a personal level, each one of us can take a moment to look at the way in which we engage with our fellow citizens. When faced with an opposing view do we actively try to understand the other person’s perspective or do we simply wait for our turn to shut down their beliefs?

    It’s important to remember that substantive debate requires two things. One, it requires that we are open and understanding to the other side’s perspective, regardless of personal beliefs. Two, we must remain civil.

    Without those two aspects, the shouting matches of 2017 will follow us into the new year.

    So, with that in mind, it is on us to actively seek out opposing views and invite civil discourse. That said, it is also on us to remain civil throughout that discourse. If the person with an opposite perspective is not civil, do not engage.”"
