´´Wire Tapping ´´ Technologically Challenged Media´´Schadenfreude, It´s Like German Chocolate Cake for the soul.

With all the Hacking and Phone tapping fuss, here are a couple of cartoon strips I came across today.
Is the media really so dumb or do they know all this stuff and realise that they are essentially an ignorance factory doing a fantastic job of nurturing ignorance or are they the Ignorant leading the ignorant, or the blind leading the blind?

On ´´Wire tapping´´, Vault 7  Snowden and all that, demonstrates the fact that all data is harvested by definition and therefore ordering a wiretap or a surveillance is not necessary these days. It´s more like dialling out for a ´pizza´ for john podesta or a ´hot dog´ for president Obama, you might say.

´´Wire Tap ´´ is merely a colloquialism in this digital wirelessly networked age.

For some real Vintage surveillance porn, one has really to become acquainted with the work of Duncan Campbell and his banned television series, ´the Secret Society´. Duncan  Continues his stellar brand of Journalism, sadly not practised by the media presstitutes of Neo Liberal Globalism.

First Though a bit of ABC.

So one sees that there really is very little new under the sun indeed Baruch Spinoza said this in 1676.

Barack Obama had some explaining to do to Chancellor Frau Merkel.

The final word and I for one, am betting that the last laugh will rest with President Donald Trump.

Schadenfreude Anyone.

Meet The Fuggers, Brexit, The Euro and Clueless Elites.

Meet the Fuggers or, its the Money Power stupid. Brexit, The Euro and clueless Elites.

The Eastern Roman empire under Justinian saw the seeds of its final fall to The Ottomans when Abd El Melik started paying tribute in Gold coinage under his own Political Branding you might say.

With all the talk of Brexit being the removal of a final obstacle to the deeper federation of a European State transcending tiresome nationalism, perhaps a little review of History, particularly Monetary history, might not be such a bad thing.

In the review of European competences carried out as a consultation by the foreign office regarding Brexit and or reform requirements of the Eu, two of the papers need to be considered in the context of the Money power argument.

The first paper considered is the Subsidiarity and proportionality aspects of the Lisbon treaty and the competences of the EU institutions vis National and regional democratic institutions. This is a trade-off between Centralised Efficiency and …
