Politics In The UK And USA

It is really quite unremarkable that the USA is the allegedly most powerful nation on Earth (the wealthiest and most influential perhaps), yet Americans need their extensive, though very small, comfort zone. Currently, it is the familiar name Clinton that pervades the atmosphere. Bush as a Republican comes from a dynasty of Bushes and familiarity with a name mixed with money produces peculiar success. My prediction is that Hillary Clinton is the front runner (not an endorsement) with Barack Obama following behind. Just saying the 'right things' is never going to be enough and coming from an untested background to become the 'most powerful officer' on the planet is not necessarily going anywhere.

One possibility that could happen in the current election process is that the first woman President of the USA could occupy the White House for 8 years with her spouse who has already occupied the White House in a more senior position: as the President of the USA for 8 years (1993 - 2001). The terminology of this scenario is fascinating: how would Bill Clinton be addressed? A potentially disturbing scenario to consider is 'pillow talk' and the potential for influence.

Clinton and Bush

Hillary Rodham Clinton is a Democrat and seems to need the presence of her ever-faithful and honourable husband companion to run for election. It appears as though the first woman would-be US president requires someone to talk for her. To rely on Bill Clinton is a strange decision. Is it? Not really, when the financial yield is so enormous. Scrutiny of the Clinton private income reveals over $109m (£53m) and has cost the US taxpayer almost as much as the other two living ex-presidents together. His retirement package to the end of 2008 will cost $8m, compared to the $5.5 for George Bush Snr and $4m for the Jimmy Carter package over the same period. Clinton has allegedly obtained more for every perk available to (former) presidents and include his pension, staff salaries, $3.2m office rent and a $420,000 phone bill (source: Politico).

Such is the overwhelming obsession to get into the White House again (the White House is a euphemism for absolute power) daughter Chelsea is being put forward as a potential candidate. At 28 years old she must abide her time for 7 years until eligible to run for office (35 years old is the minimum age requirement). The aim is to have a Clinton in the White House. Presumably, this wrecks any chance of marriage as the name would by necessity be changed.

Interesting (?) observation, but little else.

Saying what wants to be heard is an old ploy. But it still works. In fact, it happens everywhere and all of the time. The UK is a prime example with Gordon Brown talking volumes, but delivering little. UK politics never changes. What is done is always more oppressive than before. It's as though the British people have committed some heinous crime and must be punished. In the meantime murderers are let out of prison (assuming they were sent there in the first place) to kill again, but prison overcrowding is avoided.

Politics in the USA on the face of it looks much like British politics. Two main parties: Labour and Conservative in Britain and Republican and Democrat in America. The United States Constitution forces a Presidential election after a maximum of two terms (Term Limit). There is no such limit in British politics. (If only - DA.) The 'governed' citizens of either country will become disillusioned with government attitudes and are ready for change. The prime reason for the American two term limit. To prevent any monopoly happening. It seems to be that people sense another possible reason for a politician's desire to 'rule'. It is not just the power of control, but potentially the indirect access to the £billions of public money. Essentially the unaccountable £billions. Adjusting expenses as convenient is one tactic and even when caught out nothing much really happens.

In some cultures, corruption is a way of life (allegedly), but in the UK, 'transparency' has paradoxically revealed more of the underhand (alleged) activities and appears to have no party boundary. It's everywhere. The planet is doomed because there is currently no alternative to anarchy (no control) or politicians (control). Anarchy leads to the rising of out-of-control control. The 'mythical Mafia' scenario. It's all very confused and no one has any real sense of direction. All the talking up of change and a new broom sweeping clean is an illusion. The mess created can never be swept clean to start again. That's real fantasy.

Voting in the USA (20 Damning Facts)

But the peoples' attitude can be fantasy in the belief that everything will be 'all right'. If something is killed it will remain dead. Even when seriously injured, recovery could happen, but that's no guarantee. Something once damaged is never, ever the same. That applies to people and objects. It's delusion to imagine anything else. And when the long term plan is to control, a global attack by all parties on the people (roughly 7 billion) will continue until the battle is over. The serious problem is that people do not realize that a global battle is really happening and has been waged for minimally around the last 100 years. Control has been around since records began. Those records cannot be trusted as 'facts' get changed. Even in the history books.

Especially in the history books

This is the repository of information that is used to teach (indoctrinate, brain wash) the children for the next generation and the transition is complete after the parents and grandparents will eventually cease to exist. Second-hand knowledge remains in the books. Proof of truth and accuracy can then never be verified (first-hand) so the book becomes the source of truth. The classic example in the Christian belief is the bible. How this book became so globally controlling (the FEAR of God) is amazing as a 'success' story. That's also an example of fantasy. The success has resulted in billions being legally murdered in wars about control over the last 200 years.

Animal human nature is to control

Other non-sentient control involves protection. Human (sentient) control involves domination through subjugation.

A prison with virtual bars is...

still a prison

Power Games

Nuclear power is being promoted as safe and environmentally friendly. In fact, the most dangerous and potentially lethal of them all and it makes mobile phones by comparison look quite (relatively) harmless. The nuclear debate is pathetic and without logic. Stupid and filled with misguided disinformation. Designed to misinform. The consequences are lethal and terrible.

It's not if, but when the next deliberate act, incident or accident happens, that should focus the mind. Nuclear weapons require nuclear power 'facilities' to manufacture fissionable materials. All the guff pandered to talk up the case of nuclear power is the most cynical act of all time to ever be foisted on a misinformed public. The military need nuclear facilities and clearly all the rhetorical sparring manoeuvres are governments 'playing' on peoples' fears.

Depending on the selling point, apparently valuable items are very dangerous if not handled correctly and responsibly: mobile phones. Remarkable? Not really. Actually quite predictable.

  • Mobile phones can contain dangerous chemicals such as cadmium which is carcinogenic;
  • They also can contain lead, nickel, mercury or lithium to name but a few dangerous metals;
  • Lead can also cause both liver and neurological problems;
  • Many of these elements cannot decompose;
  • Lithium, if it comes into contact with water, can cause fires in landfills;
  • Other health problems such as genetic or reproductive defects and nervous system problems can also be caused by these dangerous chemicals.
It is a reasonable attempt as an explanation why climate change has been so crudely pushed:

  • The climate change issue can be solved by nuclear power: zero carbon dioxide and the specious connection?
A zero carbon dioxide energy source?

Nuclear energy

Sounds rather a 'no-brainer', but DO NOT overlook that the fissionable material that becomes a nuclear bomb can ONLY be made in nuclear facilities. And the nuclear waste generated will exist for very effectively and very, very dangerously for thousands of years. It's like breeding highly dangerous animals in the wild, allowing them to roam loose amongst a growing population. What happens now or in the very near future, will exist to the end of global time. That could be any time between now and a thousand generations in the future. The ludicrous concept is that there will be such a distant time. The race is on to determine who can destroy the Earth first and soonest. Population growth should wreck any future regardless of how it may be 'powered'. It's already too BIG in 2009 and is expected to almost double (to 12-13 billion) by 2050.

This is the unadulterated madness of the real lunatic

Any long-term solutions make no case as they fall on deaf ears and the absolute blindness of a total idiot simply because they make no financial or political profit.

Tidal power is free and will happen as long as the Moon remains unchanged. But then, should the Moon be colonised and developed by mankind, the future will be a lot worse than the present. The decision makers, on our behalf, and without our consent, either informed or otherwise since it's not needed (it's so easy to spend others' money), have only a single goal in space travel: to control extraterrestrial (off Earth) resources. The Moon will be owned by some corporate body and then tidal power will be promoted. It's a financial certainty. The irony: breathtaking. The use of public money ($£trillions) to give access to 'private' corporate profit. Almost certainly driven by government which is only a body of 'private' individuals working together with the 'hive' mentallity, yet as individuals. The stupid, selfish 'what's in it for me' attitude of the brainless 'dead-head'.

The real terrorists are those who acquire inordinate amount of control through wealth. Having super wealth. The King Midas attitude.

Some human genes are already 'owned' by patents that are legally in force. The rather thick (small) end of a very, very wide wedge. In the (not-so-distant) future, the human organism will be owned 'legally'. An excess of 50% 'ownership' means slavery with a new definition being needed.

  • A royalty will be payable to 'enjoy' life and defaulting will be the forfeiture of existence.

True Hell on Earth

  • The Devils already walk among us actively causing death and destruction.

The peaceful and safe planet will never exist while politics are 'played' by governments and 'business'. A very lethal game. This includes religious politics being played. My god is more powerful than your god and my god seems to be any type of lethal weapon from a sword to a nuclear bomb, to who is the wealthiest. All devoid of sense.

It's about all the many different forms of the control of humans. Human slavery is crude, but progress will involve more sophisticated forms of...

...human slavery.
