So forget about the time for reflection, the possibility of making the monarchy more democrat friendly. You have been awe-bombed by a family which relies 100% on our ability to quiet our inner voices, which naturally know the absurdity of a ruling family placed above the populace.
If we ask why do they continue to ‘serve’ we note their lack of political weight, their potential capture by those lucky enough, or devious enough to hold prime ministerial power.
The only ‘sweetener’ in this for a British sovereign seems to lie in the need to satisfy the personal mission of service, and the vast wealth and prestige attached to the office. In a month or so, as the novelty of a new king wears off, he will probably tail off in his relentless efforts to legitimise the existence of a hereditary monarchy, and simply continue the family tradition of opening things.
Anglo American Alamo on Asia renting Fort Australia from from from a fella…. The SQAUKUS
They were appearing to talk up their close friendship, but Scott Morrison and Joe Biden’s AUKUS announcement quickly turned awkward when the US President appeared to forget our Prime Minister’s name. Mr Biden thanked British Prime Minister Boris Johnson but then paused as he addressed Mr Morrison. “Thank you, Boris … I want to thank, ah, that fella down under,” Mr Biden said.
But these kinds of tactics from conservatives shouldn’t be understood as arguments. Instead, it’s all just flat-out trolling. None of these “arguments” are offered in good faith. The point is, as Steve Bannon once famously said, “to flood the zone with shit,” which is to say to derail efforts to inform and engage the public by pumping out so many dumb arguments, trolling tactics, and other distractions that few people can pay attention to what really matters.
Pravda means “Truth” this certainly is a case of people in glass houses throwing stones. Russian girls will go anywhere to work. The mafia run whore houses in Goa were filled with them. International “organized crime” sex trafficking the Russians are the biggest. Indirectly of course it no doubt helped build Putin’s Porno Palace.
How long will Germany remain Europe’s “brothel”? The answer is very simple, but German politicians and news hounds will not like it.Is there a place for morality in ‘brothely’ places where US soldiers stay?
Mr O’Rourke accused Mr Trump of trying to shift the public’s focus away from recent mass shootings
The FBI and the Department of Justice’s inspector general have opened investigations into Mr Epstein’s death
Mr Trump has a history of promoting conspiracy theories about political rivals
After Saturday’s death of Mr Epstein, a millionaire charged with sex trafficking who once counted Mr Trump and former president Bill Clinton as friends, Mr Trump retweeted a claim from a conservative comedian that Mr Clinton was involved in the death.
Mr Trump retweeted Terrence K Williams, who said Mr Epstein “had information on Bill Clinton & now he’s dead”.
Conclusion: The False Victim Narrative
Senator Hanson is, in a supreme irony, attempting to play the victim in order to distract from the fundamental political incompetence that she displayed in selecting her candidates. The media exposing these clowns as unfit for office is not, contrary to your victim narrative, kicking you in the guts. This rant was clearly not thought through (like much else that she says) and is even wrong on simple facts.
Three more years of this? Senate voting changes now!
Commentators like Andrew Bolt will put themselves on all sides of the fence in order to appear opinionated as well as safe to be able to say “I didn’t say that or I told you so in the same breathe”. After all Smollet is a Fox Star.(ODT)
But instant commentary is almost a necessity in 2019 if you are a celebrity or a politician — or anyone with a Twitter account.
The confusion over this story is a by-product of a culture that is quick to judge and to call-out, and one that so often rewards people for taking a side — instantly and via strong language — on an issue of public concern.
Candidates seeking office, like celebrities seeking status — like all us who are extremely online — have become incentivised to weigh in.
But as the Smollett case has shown, when a useful narrative emerges, certainty becomes secondary.
Taking his lead from Tucker Carlson, the president is spreading the myth of a global “white genocide.”
Boris Johnson is another. He once wrote about the insight of his Australian campaign mastermind Lynton Crosby who perfected the “dead cat on the table” strategy. When you wanted to avoid an issue, you said something outrageous – throwing a dead cat on the table, so to speak – to change the media cycle.
Back then it was a temporary diversionary tactic. Now, though, the tactic has become akin to cat armageddon: dead cat after dead cat after dead cat. Keep manufacturing outrage. Never apologise. Soak up all the free media coverage you can get.
