Our elite is corrupted by drugs | Daily Mail

Our entire political and media elite, across all major parties, have long been corrupted by drug abuse. I am not talking about the teenage follies they sometimes confess to. Legions of them have taken illegal drugs far more recently than they care to admit, and even more of them idiotically allow their teenage children

COMMENT

Our elite is corrupted by drugs

Perhaps that should also be in capitals and underlined.

I do not usually post an article and then criticise it. I view that as unfair, bad manners and probably falls under the new category of trolling. But in this case  I feel there is some justification.

Peter Hitchens is damned right “Our elite is corrupted by drugs”.  Until this article I have refrained from commenting on Mr Hitchens hard line on the criminality of drug use and moves to de-criminalise are wrong. I agree with him in many respects. Drug use is not only highly self-destructive, but is also immeasurably exploitative of vulnerable and desperate people tricked and coerced into providing the labour required for supplying this world-wide, major criminal industry. And this is my main disagreement with Peter Hitchens stance. Criminalising drug use extends the self-damage caused to the user to massive damage socially to the greater numbers of non-users simply because drug use is criminalised. It provides a huge bonanza to world-wide organised crime as happened with Prohibition.

I agree completely that drug use is wrong, but take the view that criminalisation creates greater problems.

But the reason I have posted Mr Hitchens article is my complete agreement with the title. “Our elite is corrupted by drugs”.

I am working class. I went to a posh grammar where I witnessed first-hand that children of the millionaires and social elite such as having near relatives in the higher bands of the police lived under a more relaxed application of laws, draconally applied to us lesser mortals. They even boasted about it. Driving tickets? Forget about it. Smoking dope? Just a youthful foible. Get a criminal record that stops your career before it starts – doesn’t happen to them.

So they are encouraged by their families and social class. Laws apply to other people. But – after school I shared a student house. One girl came from exactly that higher social class. The kind who has their child’s portrait painted by an eminent artist for their 18th birthday, and is given “just a small flat, dear” when they graduate. En-cultured to the view that laws applied to other people not her she gaily embarked on attending every student protest going to show how engaged she was with the suffering of the down-trodden. To her amazement on one such jaunt she was arrested carrying an offensive weapon. To her horror she was dragged to court where the ever-elastic law which is applied to her social caste engineered her escape. But the cost wasn’t free. A deal had been struck and now she was the slave of the secret state. Yes, she would have a career, but was now a puppet or the get out of jail card would be recalled. (And yes, she loved those recreational drugs and lots of recreational sex). She had walked into a trap. She was now an asset.

So I agree one hundred percent with Peter Hitchens statement “Our elite is corrupted by drugs” but not on the basis that people with infantile minds engaging in self-destructive hedonism, the indulgence of which they view as their birth-right, need to be protected from their own folly.

Secret police and spies actively encourage the naive, ignorant and unwary to engage in crimes as they can then be blackmailed by threat of imprisonment into doing exactly as they are told.

The last thing police/spies want is for drugs to be de-criminalised. The silly elite kid who takes drugs can be used to leverage the cooperation of their well-connected parents, and as their career blossoms in turn become the tool of their very own political masters.

If you want our elite to become un-corrupted by drugs, Mr Hitchens, the best way forward to free all those upper-class puppets is to have drugs de-criminalised.

 

Investigative Journalism

alicespringstomind

Scattered amidst the single consensus narrative you occasionally find an actual investigative journalist. Anna Brees (UK) and Naomi Wolf (USA) are worth following. Days ago a German court ruled lockdown as a “catastrophically wrong political decision with dramatic consequences for almost all areas of people’s lives.

Naomi Wolf interviews Kevin McKernan and Bobby Malhotra in this hour-long video which gets a bit complicated on the issue of PCR testing but for anyone interested, it is well worth the effort as this is growing into a story which mainstream will soon be unable to continue to ignore. Co-authors of the Corman-Drosten Review Report, they speak about the problems of PCR and the interview is summarised well by The Daily Clout, as below. For a full understanding, its important to listen to the video, for example McKernan states clearly that the Drosten protocol has not been in use…

A Pilgrim not progressive

The Slog

Beyond a brain assailed by mire
a soul somewhere must still aspire
to dull the pain of every souture
adding golden past to future.
A doggerel goes around the world
(its smiling lips perversely curled)
to pour false witness on the old.
To blinker eyes with lies ice-cold.
To promise golden ages soon.
To damn the smiles in my cocoon.
To call me every heinous name –
“far-Right rapist” – and defame
my only heroes once carnate
as harbingers of racist hate.
Come Churchill, Carlin, Bentham, Ike
and fall upon the Wapo spike:
we see your heads at Traitor’s Gate,
predicting every free man’s fate.
Come Kafka, Orwell, Huxley, More –
accept your fate as Blobs adore
the catechismic Brechts and Maos
as cataclysmic sacred cows…
while shaming Beijing and (Ras)putin,
insisting we must put the boot in.

A permafrost of discontent
lies still beneath this thin consent
for masks…

“CDC Stops Reporting on Experimental COVID mRNA Injection Side Effects”

53 Dead in Gibraltar in 10 Days After Experimental Pfizer mRNA COVID Injections Started:

Gibraltar is a British Colony at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula attached to the country of Spain. It’s population is just over 30,000 people, and it is best known for its huge “rock,” the “Rock of Gibraltar.”

I have been contacted by residents in Gibraltar stating that 53 people have died in 10 days immediately following the roll out of injections of the Pfizer mRNA COVID injections, and calling it a “massacre.”

Local media reports confirm the deaths, but blame them on COVID, and not the COVID injections.

However, prior to the roll out of the injections, it is reported that only 16 people in total died “from COVID” since the beginning of the “pandemic” about a year ago.

Here’s A Graph They Don’t Want You To See

By Sebastian Rushworth M. D.

Note: Although the graph does not show you can get the jist from the article.

‘Here’s a graph that doesn’t get shown in the mass media, and that I’m sure all those who want you to stay fearful of covid don’t want you to see. It shows the share of the tested population with antibodies to covid in Sweden week by week, beginning in the 28th week of 2020 (the first week for which the Swedish Public Health Authority provides data on the share of tests coming back positive).

There is so much that is interesting about this graph. Like I said, it begins in week 28, in other words in early July, which is around the time the first Swedish covid wave was bottoming out. At the time,I personally thought this was due to enough of the population having developed immunity to covid

Now, they talk differently

The Gold Standard

The World Health Organisation has come out with a new guideline on how to use PCR tests. Many so-called ‘lockdown sceptics’, such as Dr. Micheal Yeadon, former Chief Scientific Officer of Pfizer, have been saying this for a long time.

Read these paragraphs and even a non-medical person can understand the nuanced reading of the PCR tests that this recommends:

WHO guidanceDiagnostic testing for SARS-CoV-2states that careful interpretation of weak positive results is needed (1). The cycle threshold (Ct) needed to detect virus is inversely proportional to the patient’s viral load. Where test results do not correspond with the clinical presentation, a new specimen should be taken and retested using the same or different NAT technology.

WHO reminds IVD users that disease prevalence alters the predictive value of test results; as disease prevalence decreases, the risk of false positive increases (2). This means that…
