Secrets and Lies

Secrets and Lies
Those of us who live in Nanny Britain are sometimes forbidden from reading the details of certain events and rumours that others, in the rest of world, have free access to.

The latest cover up concerns the name of the minor royal allegedly involved in the cocaine/sex blackmail plot.

In Britain we are forbidden from knowing the name of the minor royal implicated in this plot. However, elsewhere people are free to read about it.

Those of you who are curious may care to visit Ninemsn Australia, where the royal is named.

Nanny's secrecy rules really do look absurd in the modern internet age.

However, this is nothing new.

During the abdication crisis the media in the US published Mrs Simpson's name and details of the affair, whilst the British media were forbidden from doing so.

Wealthy British citizens simply went to New York and read about it there.

The law has been an ass for at least 60 years!

    The difference between the media systems in the west (eg. UK + US) and those of communist China or the old Soviet Union is that, in the commie countries, the people knew full well they were being spoon-fed propaganda. That's the genius of the western system: the people are being spoon-fed the propaganda but don't realize it.

    Thankfully, people are beginning to wake up to the fact that western media is not whiter than white - take the BBC for example. Here in the US, the media is giving all the coverage to *their* preferred presidential candidates. The only two *honest* politicians running for office don't get a look in and are made out by the media to be kooks or just plain crazy. On news channel even dubbed laughter over one candidate every time he spoke during a presidential debate on TV - subliminal but it works on all the "sheeple" of average intelligence.

    Also, they are trying to limit web access and freedom of speech - all in the name of kiddie porn, etc. - via something called Net Neutrality. It is censorship for political and freedom reasons just like they have in China or Saudi Arabia. Yet the media will keep telling us all that we live in free countries and net neutrality is a good thing. Before you know it Ken, they may be putting a gag on you and your fabulous web site.

    Hello Ken,

    I think they've knobbled you already, I've been trying the link all afternoon, page unavailable!

    Great fan of the site.

  3. Anon's comments above give cause for us all to be concerned, and concerned we should be, as to what has already come about without our knowledge, and what is coming.

    In the US a piece of legislation is being created which ought to be labelled the “Thought Crime Prevention Bill”. But it is disguised as the “Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007”, being introduced, as is not uncommon nowadays, under the camouflage of the fictional and much hyped “war on terror”.

    Using vague terms, which would be the subject of personal interpretation by any judge or jury, this legislation pertains to those who are:

    “(2) VIOLENT RADICALIZATION- The term `violent radicalization' means the process of adopting or promoting an extremist belief system for the purpose of facilitating ideologically based violence to advance political, religious, or social change.”

    The definition of homegrown terrorism uses equally vague language to further define thought crime. The bill includes the planned use of force or violence as homegrown terrorism which could be interpreted as thinking about using force or violence. Not only that but the definition is so vaguely defined, that petty crimes could even fall into the category of homegrown terrorism. The definition as defined in the bill is shown below.

    “(3) HOMEGROWN TERRORISM- The term `homegrown terrorism' means the use, planned use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual born, raised, or based and operating primarily within the United States or any possession of the United States to intimidate or coerce the United States government, the civilian population of the United States, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.”

    I know this is America, a so called free country, but watch our war criminal politicians in the UK jump on this bandwagon. Why is this sinister, surely it’s targeted towards these hoards of terrorists we have under every bed, or in every cupboard (except mine, as I can’t seem to see any)? Well, watch out any person who is opposed to the current illegal invasions of two Middle Eastern Countries in the name of oil (oh, sorry, meant to write WMDs and Al-Qaeda). Watch out anyone opposed to the threatened looming illegal invasion of Iran, of which the mainstream media is currently manipulating our perceptions and beliefs in a blatant show of propaganda and lies.
