Draining the Swamp

It is pleasing that Stateside there will soon begin what is being termed 'draining the swamp' to get all the accumulated filth out of American 'power-offices' (as one might collectively label them, government and non-government positions that wield real power, together).

This is assuming that the corrupt elements in the Establishment don't succeed in arranging or aiding the President-elect's assassination in the meantime, or that Obama doesn't now succeed in starting WW3 as he has been unsuccessfully reportedly doing since April of last year, according to several informed sources. One way or another, their collective (and well-embedded) might will fight back hard in order to preserve their positions, perks & benefits, and ideology. It appears that some of them at least are Satanists, according to several reputable sources, so this is big stuff indeed!

The latter of the above two possibilities seems to have become much less likely as Mr Putin has already (just hours ago) publicly stated that he is "ready to restore relations with the United States" – a crucially important marker put down in the timeline at this precise moment. This pulls the rug out from under Obama, and leaves him little room now to foment that global nuclear conflict.
Thus the world is already considerably safer as a direct result of the Trump presidential election success: something I have been saying all along would be so, of course, as readers of my scribblings both here and elsewhere will no doubt recall.

Meanwhile, although America has been slowly waking up to the realities in their country – despite almost entirely one-sided media bias (even in places ostensibly on the opposite side) and slanted & faked-up opinion polls, among other methods of swaying public opinion – they are still a fair way behind where we are in Britain.

It was the advent of widely-read online media alternatives and other informed (and more open & honest) sources that has turned and continues to turn public awareness away from the slanted reporting and concealment of politically 'inconvenient' matters that made all this possible, of course – which, incidentally, is why corrupt institutions are trying to control and censor such sources.

The difference between the two sides of the Atlantic has, I think, been largely if not mostly down to the less one-sided nature of our own mainstream media here in Britain. People started to become aware of the differential reporting and treatment of the same topic, especially once they were easily able to check our various sources one after the other.
Of course, media can take whatever views they wish, as long as they are legal ones – but their credibility and thus readership (and the all-important advertising revenue) will be impacted if they are perceived as less than honest, accurate, fair or useful from their readerships' point of view.

This 'new media' change still took time to take effect, as our successive elections of various kinds have illustrated if one analyses enough of them, but the trend in Britain over the last decade and a half (or so) has been unmistakable. Although a number of factors have been in play, some media's attempted manipulation of public opinion had been perhaps the single biggest contributor for quite a while, and that has now diminished considerably – as sales of and subscriptions to the traditional media sources consistently dwindles in evidence.

Another source of indoctrination that hasn't yet changed much – but will, thanks to the new types of schools in Britain – is the socialist brainwashing being perpetrated upon our upcoming generation by so-called 'qualified' Lefty teachers and college/university lecturers. That's currently most of them. This, combined with the young's as-yet inexperience of life and learning in the real world over time, largely explains the generational political divide.
Yes, those of us who have 'been around the block' a fair few times have learned – in our own way and in our own time – what is real and what is cleverly dressed up falsehood or 'spin', and those of us with the wisdom and self-honesty to actually learn and truly grow up despite our earlier preconceptions tend to be on the political Right, even if with a degree of caution and broader realism tempering our outlooks to some extent.
That is as true as ever, though not universal. Too many chips on shoulders and suchlike for that!

It is the targeting of our young,on both sides of the Atlantic, that starts it all off again with each successive generation – and it will be the eventual and essential draining of the education sector 'swamp' that will finally clean up the core of our society, but will probably be completed after the others have been cleansed. It will take many years.

Rainham Central By-Election

The Rainham Central by-election was held yesterday (3 November 2016), caused by the sad loss of Mike O'Brien to cancer, and the insistence of at least one opposition party to stand where perhaps (as some have said) it should have been uncontested. In the event, a total of six candidates stood, representing the six enduring parties that we have around Medway. Others have come and gone, but these six can be relied upon for fielding candidates in Medway – though not necessarily in all seats or all cases.

Anyway, the by-election result is now in. The solid Conservative win is no surprise, with no less than 61% of the total vote; but perhaps Labour's third-place position will have been unexpected by some – though I had a strong feeling that it might go that way.

Indeed, I well recall rubbing my hands with glee at seeing the Statement of Persons Nominated – i.e. list of candidates – when it was published. That is always the moment when I know more or less what is going to be the outcome, and when I make my (sometimes public) predictions. It is always a delight when the ever-arrogant Medway Labour end up in third place or lower, as has happened a few times in recent elections, both local and national (e.g. Rochester & Strood last year).

Here are the vote numbers, in descending order as usual...
  • Jan Aldous (Con) – 1,448
  • Mark Mencattelli (UKIP) – 389
  • Simon Allen (Lab) – 320
  • Paul Chaplin (Lib Dem) – 137
  • George Meegan (Green) – 61
  • Mike Russell (Eng Dem) – 14
Percentages (including changes from May 2015) are...
  • Con: 61.1% (+9.9)
  • UKIP: 16.4% (-5.2)
  • Lab: 13.5% (-2.9)
  • Lib Dem: 5.8% (+5.8)
  • Green: 2.6% (-5.2)
  • Eng Dem: 0.6% (+0.6)
As with the recent Strood South by-election, again we see a huge divide between the current 'big three' parties and the rest. The norm nowadays seems to be that the English Democrats have become the dependable last place party, now coming behind even the Greens(!)

Even more noticeable is the sheer size of the winner's majority – over a thousand votes more than the runner-up, and in fact a good three and a half times the votes of UKIP and more than four times the Labour candidate's vote.

There's a real message for some of the parties in there somewhere...
