About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

All smoke and mirrors and utter bollocks. It is all they have.

As the open hearings begin let us all pledge that we will not be distracted from what we are witness to. Because...

Even if …blah blah…insert republican bullshit line of the day here, in no way would that mitigate or exonerate Trump of the bribery/extortion/quid pro quo debacle. Neither will this obvious blah blah strategy clear Trump of the high crimes and misdemeanours evidence that has been repeatedly corroborated by numerous witnesses and participants.

Although it is evident that Trump is too much of an idiot to pull of Ukrainegate, that matters not one jot. Blah blah stupid does not exonerate him from committing a crime, anymore than it does for the thousands of thickets that currently reside in prison have been found guilty for criminal offences.

All they have is blah blah complete smoke and mirrors and utter bollocks.

...It's Latin. It basically means..



They are pandering to the worst in people and it is working across the West.

Patriotism is being conflated with nativism and nationalism in far-right parties across the West and it is having a disturbingly successful impact. As Charles de Gaulle said: Patriotism is when love of your own people comes first; nationalism, when hate for people other than your own comes first, and we are certainly witness to this with the ongoing rise of the far right and their successes at the ballot box across Europe. These parties are successfully harnessing discontent about economic stagnation within certain groups of voters, to ride a wave of populist antipathy towards foreigners, ‘the political elite’ and ‘experts’. I fear that this hostility of other is not going to change any time soon, that this is the beginning of a much longer period of political destabilisation that is a real concern.

These populations that have been bamboozled enjoy the bollocks, racism, xenophobia and violent language that has been unleashed. Flag hugging, placard waving simpletons placing identity, hopes and aspirations into an empty box called 'nationality', and ignoring or downplaying the significance of pretty much any issue that actually matters as a consequence. Reasoning has gone out the door with these chaps and chapettes. Logic cannot defeat them…

The horrors of the early 20th Century should have cured us of nationalism. But self-deception and not learning from facts and history is seemingly a right wing trait that will not die...

Just sayin'

United States admits zero refugees for the first time since records began

The United States government admitted no refugees last month for the first time since records began. Advocacy group World Relief said October 2019 was the first month in 30 years that the US government failed to allow a single refugee to resettle. The US was the world’s leading refugee resettlement destination until Donald Trump became president in 2017. It had previously resettled more refugees than all other countries on Earth put together, but began slipping down the ranks in the first year of Trump’s presidency.

Huh... but...but...
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Trump adviser Stephen Miller sought to promote white nationalism, leaked emails show

The report describes Mr Miller’s emails as overwhelmingly focused on race and immigration and characterises him as obsessed with ideas like “white genocide” (a conspiracy theory associated with white supremacists) and sharply curbing non-white immigration.

What Stephen Miller sent to me in those emails has become policy at the Trump administration,’ recipient says


White ethno nationalist supremacists now run the immigration policy. This cannot be allowed to stand. Apart from doing the right thing and complying with international law, refugees are good for the economy.


EVERY dog has his day. Today is Trump's day.

I have said this before and it bears repeating, President Trump doesn’t cause people to lose their character, he reveals people’s character for who they truly are. And for that we should all be grateful that we can see clearly.


Exactly this...

Lieflation: Trump Tells Crowd Ivanka Has Created 14 Million New Jobs

At a speech to the Economic Club of New York today, President Trump declared that his daughter, Ivanka, has personally created 14 million new jobs. The president announced this figure — so astonishingly ludicrous it would embarrass a Stalin-era pronouncement — and then repeated it twice more as the crowd applauded politely.

The entire U.S. economy has created fewer than 6 million new jobs since Trump took office. So Trump is crediting his daughter with having personally created more than 200 percent of all new jobs in the United States. This is like supply-side economics but for authoritarian nepotism.

Causing 'profound' trauma, Trump administration detained record-breaking 70,000 children in 2019

The U.S. held a record 69,550 migrant children in detention facilities in 2019, a Tuesday report from The Associated Press and PBS Frontline found, leading to major psychological and physiscal harm and lasting trauma.

“No other country held as many immigrant children in detention over the past year as the United States—69,550,” said AP tech reporter Frank Bajak in a tweet promoting his colleagues’ work. “The physical and emotional scars are profound.”
