A while back, I heard the then manager of the Scottish Football team Celtic, Gordon Strachan, when asked his feelings on Celtic having just won the Scottish Premiership for the ninth time in the last eleven seasons, reply that he was elated with this result and he could announce that he had been promised more funds to strengthen his team.
I was amazed at this response, which was in fact an argument against the whole idea of fair competition as the aim of sport, in all of its facets. Back in the day, they at least had Rangers to contend with, but for some time there has been no real competition whatsoever in the Scottish Premier Division.
Once upon a time football was a sport which involved groups of men and boys from local villages with enthusiastic support for players whom were known to the spectators.
This system went through a gradual change as teams from larger towns poached the better players from the villages, giving the players a salary, which back in the day was ‘capped’ at twenty pounds a week, I believe.
This system worked very well for years, because as with Cricket, the players were from the same area, more or less, a system which maintained ‘real’ local support for the teams, with local ‘Derby’ matches between the likes of Bristol Rover against Bristol City or Man Utd against Man City, adding to the excitement. Not to forget the brutal local Derby’s between village sides like Shortwood United against Forest Green Rovers, or even Lydney Town.
This family sized spectacle has now been transformed into a psychopathic grudge ridden rich man’s effort to outspend his business rivals, which has completely unbalanced the whole exercise.
The Premiership in the UK has now become a matter of five possible winners, some say no more than three, while all of the rest fight it out amongst themselves, not to be relegated.
Surely the time has come to take a trick out of the horse-racing play-book by introducing a system of handicapping, in order to give a fair chance to all competitors.
While there are already complaints about the number of top players who end up on the ‘bench’ of some team or other because there is no place for them in the first team, due to the surfeit of players whom have been ‘bought out’ of the game by rich owners, anxious to win at all cost.
There is a simple remedy to both problems, introduce a points reduction, according to the monetary value of the team. This could also involve the ‘giving’ of additional points to the minnows at the bottom of the various divisions.
This simple act would immediately generate a sense of urgency and stress into the minds of the few major teams, whose soul aim at the moment is to finish in the ‘Top Four’ to guarantee a place in the Champions League.
‘There is no such thing, at this date in the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it.
The business of the Journalist is to destroy truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread.
You know it and I know it and what folly , is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals for rich men behind the scenes.
We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.’ ~ John Swinton, former Chief of Staff, The New York Times, 1953
Top Problems With Agenda 21
1. All private property rights (property ownership) will be forbidden
2. All forms of irrigation, pesticides and commercial fertilizer, forbidden
3. Livestock production and most meat consumption, forbidden
4. Privately owned vehicles and personal travel, forbidden
5. Use of fossil fuels for power generation or mechanized travel. Forbidden
6. Single family homes. and all of the above will be forbidden, except of course for the Elite.
7. Most forms of mineral extraction and timber harvesting
8. Human population must be reduced to fewer than 1 billion people. This is of course already taking place. We are being fed false information on a daily basis. In particular, the White Race is on the verge of extinction. Birth rates have dropped below the point of replacement of the population and is still dropping.
Apart from that we are in good shape.
"We are not denying and are not afraid to confess that this war is our war and that it is waged for the liberation of Jewry... Stronger than all fronts together is our front, that of Jewry.
We are not only giving this war our financial support on which the entire war production is based, we are not only providing our full propaganda power which is the moral energy that keeps this war going.
The guarantee of victory is predominantly based on weakening the enemy forces, on destroying them in their own country, within the resistance.
And we are the Trojan horses in the enemy's fortress. Thousands of Jews living in Europe constitute the principal factor in the destruction of our enemy. There, our front is a fact and the most valuable aid for victory."
- Chaim Weizmann, President of the World Jewish Congress, Head of the Jewish Agency and later President of Israel, in a Speech on December3, 1942, in New York.
Throughout the barbaric destruction of the Middle East, which has turned the region into a massive bomb crater, the United Nations was there, on the ground, in all its glory. They watched as Bush and Blair lied us all into the destruction of Afghanistan and Iraq, all of it based on disinformation and deceit, without […]

I have been trawling through endless, clips of the October event in Las Vegas, desperately seeking anything, no matter what, which would in some way or other prove the ever-changing ‘reality’ of the tale, which has been peddled, by the mainstream media, since long before there was any evidence in support of those claims, evidence […]
